Hey U of T students and faculty
Did you ever wonder why the University of Toronto would want to rent space to a speaker that is hell bent on the destruction of basic medical science, and replace it with crackpot theological rants, while at the same time he sells you products, books, and tapes from his travelling road show?
Horowitz uses Christianity as a guise to push his flock of paranoid victims into his frame of reference. In these links below, from the web site of a fundamentalist Christian osteopathic physician, Joseph Mercola:
There is no more heated and vociferous debate today than the topic of vaccinations. Are they safe and effective? Are they dangerous to our health and immune depressing? Do vaccines cause cancer and mutations in our genetic cells? Are vaccines the way we should have health? Are vaccinations only a ploy to keep people sick and users of allopathic medications?
Many of these questions will be covered here, but vaccinations are a hot topic and this paper will raise more questions than it answers. The very minimum, we should seek truth with an open mind and a glad heart. We want to do what is right for our children’s health and we want them to grow strong and hearty. Therefore, we should put our trust in the God who made us and seek His truth.
Muddied issues like vaccines only make one miss the point - that we are created by a kind and loving God. David in Psalms 139:14 says that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" and can rejoice at that fact for He made us and He made the foods that we need for our health and well-being.
Let no one distract you from your search of the truth about vaccinations. Parents need to become educated before vaccinations are given to your love ones. Reading only pro-vaccine literature from our doctor’s office and the public health service does not inform one about the adverse effects of vaccinations and the complications that may arise. While the medical literature is full of references to vaccines causing many neurological diseases and depressing the immunity, these facts are often glossed over when vaccinations are discussed. However, one must become informed to theses risks so that an educated risk assessment may be made. Is the risks of the disease greater than the risk from the vaccinations? I hope that this publication helps you decide this very important and heated topic today. Seek out the books in the references and check out the web sites for more in depth information and educate yourself before first before deciding about vaccinations.
There is a wide gap of truth and honesty between the pro-vaccine groups (most doctors, all vaccine manufacturers, (CDC, FDA, AMA, AAP, PHS and other medical/ government complexes) and the anti-vaccine groups (NVIC/DPT, Vaccine Research, Vaccination Alternatives, Concerned Parents for Vaccine Safety (CPVS), Global Vaccine Awareness League (GVAL), Immunization Awareness Society (IAS), and many other interested groups of parents and concerned citizens.
The pro-side of the fence is lined with the people who profit from the sale of vaccines - the physicians, the vaccine makers, and the government, while the anti-side is lined with parents and people who suffered damaged by vaccinations. Yes, both sides are biased.
Read both sides of the arguments for and against vaccinations, then decide with an open mind and without being coerced or forced into a hasty decision at the end of a needle. As you study the vaccine issue, you will see that there are widely differing opinions, and both sides are supported by facts, research and studies. We have the most difficult decision of all ahead of us, deciding who we shall believe. By using the references to the citations listed in these sections, one can begin to see that there is a lot of research on vaccine damage and that vaccines - in fact - do cause many problems. Remember this is from the -generally pro-vaccine - medical literature.
I hope that this information helps you with that very important decision and to have a happy and long healthy life!
Lenny has many BIG TIME anti-vaccination supporters in Toronto, who may or may not share his Messianic Jewish tradition, or proselytizing. I've never been to one of her anti-vaccine pot luck $20 a head revival meetings on Thursday night, but one of them is Katrina Kulhay, a nutritionist and chiropractor. She's garnered support from some significant people in the media, I would assume based on her poise and speaking ability, not on the degree to which she debates the medical facts with others.
One of those supporters is none other than Marilyn Linton of the Toronto Sun who also lends her support to former psychiatrist turned chelation and anti-aging "specialist" Vincent DeMarco.
She's done such a great job giving them free publicity in her column and on the Canoe.ca web site that they use reprints of those articles to sell their facility to the public.
In fact, both Vincent and Katrina were speakers at a recent totally quacky health expo. I don't know if Marilyn showed up, there was so much to see and so much to write about. The grand scale of wacko science and mumbo jumbo that was there might have zapped her frontal lobes for good.
I suppose that if it's o.k. to host a tobacco celebration on campus then it must be kosher to host one of the world's foremost anti-vaccine cult leaders, and spiritual healers as well.
We'd like to know how this fine example of what James Randi would refer to as a Flim-Flam man, has been able to infiltrate Mohawk, and now the University of Toronto facilities to spread his rubbish, to sell his products to anyone who wanders in and pays the money to see him.
Ask yourself some questions, and then use your fingers and dial or e-mail the folks who may have some explaining to do.
