The Food Revolution Papers is a political program, Mannie Barling, Ashley F. Brooks, and Simon Barrett take time to debate the politics behind what is on our dinner plate. And the politics are thicker than your grandma’s sausage gravy!

What people do not often realize is that Big Food has a brother, Big Pharma. These two are so intertwined it is often hard to tell where one ends and the other begins.

This week on the Food Revolution Papers we will be looking at one aspect of Big Pharma, the Vaccination trail. Every parent with a new born child wants to do the very best for their son or daughter. Protecting them against illness is obviously a major part of that.

But at what point is protection too much? In the 1950’s and 1960’s, a child was given 3 or 4 shots. They were in many cases life saving. Illnesses such as Polio are now just a passing paragraph in a dusty history book.

There are few people that would argue against vaccinations for our youngest people. But, at what point do you say ‘ENOUGH”? The data I am being given is indicating that by the time a child is three he will have received more than 30 vaccinations!

That is almost one per month! I am 55 years old, and the needle and I are not friends. On more than one occasion I have offered to repay the doctor by using a Black and Decker drill with a 1/4 inch drill bit and demonstrate just how much I hate the damn needle. Needless to say, I have yet to meet a doctor that is interested in this plan.

A young baby however does not have my pain management abilities. He or she gets stuck with the sharp bit and it is game over!

But here is the question. What is in those Syringes that your baby gets?

That is a very large question, and one that we will be talking about on the program tomorrow. At Noon eastern point your browser here to listen in live.
