Vaxxed Movie Review
“Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe"
I recently saw the movie Vaxxed and felt it required a review. Vaxxed was released on April 1st, 2016 by Cinema Libre Studio, directed by Andrew Wakefield. I thought it was going to be a movie about a study linking autism and vaccines but I was wrong. I thought it was going to be a movie bashing vaccines, but I was wrong. It was so much more. As a mother to a child with autism, I have always wondered where I went wrong. Personally, now I think I know.
Vaxxed alleges that the CDC, the Center for Disease Control, destroyed/manipulated data on their 2004 study that showed a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. Note that it is just the MMR triple vaccine, not the single doses of mumps, measles and rubella. Nor is it against other vaccines. It actually recommends to have your child vaccinated, just not the MMR until the child is at least 3 years old. Getting the MMR vaccine too early can cause autism, according to studies done by Andrew Wakefield.
A lot of information comes to light, like the fact that vaccines are not properly tested, the people who oversee the system are the ones making money from the product, the pharmacy companies are basically their own mainstream media. Just like cigarettes were pushed for years for being safe... so too are vaccines. And it's only a matter of time before the truth is accepted.
I would recommend everyone in America see this movie, especially if you are a parent to an autistic child. I myself have two children. My son was vaccinated and has autism. My daughter has not received the MMR vaccine and shows no signs. My son was a happy, healthy baby developing normally before he was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine. Over the next few days, it was like a lightswitch had been flipped. He stopped babbling. He stopped trying to crawl. He regressed. He has since been diagnosed with autism.
I give this movie a 10/10. It's riveting, emotional and attention getting. It's a tearjerker at times but it reports facts. Facts one cannot ignore. I WILL be buying a DVD copy of this movie when it comes out on September 13th, 2016.
