(NaturalNews) A recent study published in the journal Pediatrics suggests that giving eight-week-old babies several doses of acetaminophen (Tylenol) before and after the barrage of recommended childhood vaccines they typically receive will help them to sleep better, and improve vaccine efficacy. And because many doctors believe that sleeping after vaccinations is a positive sign that vaccines are supposedly “working,” this dangerous protocol could become common practice among pediatric doctors when administering childhood vaccines.
Linda Franck and her colleagues at the University of California, San Francisco‘s (UCSF) Department of Family Health Care Nursing conducted a randomized, controlled trial on 70 infants that technically constitutes child abuse. For their study, the team told one group of mothers to administer standard care to their babies, while the other was told to give their babies a heavy load of pre-dosed acetaminophen 30 minutes before receiving their vaccines, and every four hours after that for a total of five doses.
At the conclusion of the study, the team observed that acetaminophen helped the babies to sleep more, and also allegedly helped to increase their antibody production rates. Franck and her colleagues also made the suggestion based on their findings that young babies receive their vaccinations in the afternoon rather than in the morning, so that sleep would come more naturally in the 24 hours that followed.
It is bad enough that babies are injected with upwards of 20 vaccines within the first few months of their lives (http://www.cdc.gov). But now researchers want to give these delicate, developing human beings large doses of acetaminophen, which has been shown in numerous studies to cause liver and kidney damage, and even death (http://www.lef.org).
Acetaminophen has never been proven safe for children
In fact, according to a recent review by Vactruth.com, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration(FDA) scientific panel back in 2007 recommended that acetaminophen no longer be recommended for children under six years of age because of its extreme toxicity. The FDA ignored this recommendation, however, and continues to recommend acetaminophen for young children, even though it has never been proven safe for this age group (http://vactruth.com/2012/03/30/babies-sleep-drugged-vaccinated/).
Back in 2009, a study out of the Czech Republic found the opposite of what the UCSF researchers found, observing that the administration of acetaminophen before and after vaccinations actually obstructs the supposed effectiveness of the vaccines. Conducted by Dr. Roman Prymula from the University of Defence, that study revealed that acetaminophen reduces the immune response to vaccines, which mainstream medicine considers an indicator that the vaccines are functioning as intended (http://abcnews.go.com).
And a 2008 study published in the journal Lancet also found that babies who are given acetaminophen within the first year of their lives are 46 percent more likely than other babies to develop asthma. According to Richard Beasley from the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand who conducted the study, acetaminophen reduces antioxidant levels in babies’ bodies, which makes them more prone to oxidative stress and lung damage.
