This is the biggest threat to our health in 2019

When reviewing 2018, it was a very good year for my family. They are all healthy, fit and happy. I could not ask for more than that.

Gary Moller and Alofa Kosena

It was a very good year for me, personally.

I celebrated my 24th year of being engaged to the love of my life, Alofa Kosena.

I became a pensioner - sorry - wrong term - I am now a professional athlete with funding from the Government.

I became the UCI Mountain Bike 65+ world champion.

I'm super-fit and in excellent health. My heart pumps efficiently and my joints do not squeak or grind. My brain seems to be working okay.

We work like we never worked before but we can choose the work we do nowadays. If we want to work.

I sure can't complain about how things are going.

However, there are ongoing threats to our health and well-being, especially that of our children and we are rapidly losing ground.


Something is very wrong: the more we spend on health, the less healthy we are becoming


I'm a hyper-vigilant grandparent these days. Yes, I'm protective of my children and their children.

One challenge in health promotion is assessing when the benefits of a preventive measure sufficiently outweigh the risks of the procedure. When it comes to getting this right on the behalf of our children I want a BIG safety margin. "First do no harm" must be ruthlessly applied to any medical procedure that is given to a healthy child, including my offspring.

This is from the product insert for a brand new vaccine which a 6 x disease-prevention combo:

“Rates of adverse reactions varied by number of doses of Vaxelis received. The solicited adverse reactions 0-5 days following any dose were irritability (≥55 percent), crying (≥45 percent), injection site pain (≥44 percent), somnolence (≥40 percent), injection site erythema (≥25 percent), decreased appetite (≥23 percent), fever ≥38.0°C (≥19 percent), injection site swelling (≥18 percent), and vomiting (≥9 percent).”1

Am I right in assuming that ~50% and possibly more, of the children injected, suffered some kind of side effect? Is that right? Please help me because the figure seems astonishingly high.

The comparison with the control vaccine is equally interesting.
