Jim's Voice Doesn't Carrey Over Loud Chick

6/5/2008 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rubber face Jim Carrey and girlfriend Jenny McCarthy put on yet another event for Autism yesterday in Washington, D.C. - this time to rid vaccines of bad toxins. Finally, someone who's taking a stand against immunizations.

Normally, J.C. would be the loudest voice at a rally, but this woman with the megaphone didn't even give Jim or his ass a chance to speak. She neither was nice nor polite, but at least she wasn't funny.

How blessed those of you are who do not have a child with this terrible neurological disability. Unless you're living it, hold your comments.

What scares me about these comments is that so many of them accept the science that is coming from the very people making profits from vaccines. Furthermore if you care enough to do your own homework...and I doubt anyone who is not personally affected by this will, you will find that MANY of the ingredients are really nasty stuff! The Gardisil vaccine alone is hurting our young girls and now there is talk of vaccinating our young boys with it!! It is a bold face lie to believe we can keep pumping this crap into our children and NOT damage them! It is just common sense. If I put mercury into my childs oatmeal because I think it is safe to use as a way to preserve the oatmeal...and my child eats that oatmeal and gets sick/becomes poisoned, does it matter that mercury/thimerosal is a good preservative??? NO! I would be in jail for poisoning my child!! And, nobody in their right mind would do such a thing...WE KNOW BETTER! Then why in the world would we inject it right into the bloodstream of a 2 day old baby? Why would that be safer? And why not full disclose to a parent BEFORE vaccination, what the ingredients of that vaccine are? They cannot, and will not do that. Why? Just try asking the next time it happens with one of your children...watch the reaction.
I was included in a meeting with a whistleblower in our state who worked for a big pharma making a particular vaccine. In that meeting...with the Attorney General, he told us that he has personally seen vaccines be re-filtered, or recycled... that should have been thrown out because they were "dirty". It happens all the time folks. Wake up! Big pharma does not want to save us...if they do they are out of business. I am not anti-vaccine necessarily, but, I think it very unwise to just accept everything that is shoved down our throats as truth. Do your own research, and always, always ask questions! If anybody is truly interested there is a lot of info @ www.generationrescue.org

I hate to break it to everybody, but there is no widespread conspiracy by the big bad drug companies and the FDA to wish this thing away. Many of the e-mails/articles that people point to as "proof" of some sinister conspiracy are discussions that typically take place prior to initiating scientific studies - in any setting. First you come up with your theory/hypothesis, and then you test it. That being said, researchers on the same project often have differing opinions (often very heated) going into the trial - that's why you do trials - to prove without a doubt, via statistical analysis that "X does or does not cause Y". The amount of effort and funding (NIH funding) that has gone into investigating the link between vaccines and autism is mind boggling, and all scientific evidence to date shows no link.

I absolutely feel for these children and their families, but perhaps all of the "thimerosol efforts" would be better directed towards trying to find the real cause, and better understanding the childs immune system and the changes going on at that time, i.e. mother to child immune shift. How about all of the micromolecules in everything we use? How about the preservatives and additives in our daily diet? Food and production science has far outpaced our ability to adapt to these chemicals physicologically, yet most of these chemicals are never tested on humans, much less young children.

Ask any neurologist and psychologist, and they will tell you that the incidence of diagnosis for virtually every neurologic disorder/disease has increased exponentially over the last two decades. This is multifactoral, with a combination of better diagnostic tools allowing earlier and more complete recognition of all severity levels, a decreased social stigma associated with disabilities, and a better understanding of the brain due to improved imaging metrics (MRI, PET, etc.). Autism is no different.

It's unfortunate that rather than looking at the NIH studies as an opportunity to narrow down the search for the real cause, people with no understanding of scientific testing methods have instead chosen to not move on and dispute the results. Beyond all of that, the potential for future outbreaks of disease increases with every child who does not get vaccinated. Guess what, if a disease is bad enough that you should get vaccinated, then you don't want it. Additionally, everything comes with a risk/benefit ratio, and your risk of developing autism from a vaccination (if you still believe in this idea) is far less than your risk of getting a horrible communicable disease if you don't get vaccinated.

Jenny and Jim are not saying not to vaccine your children, they are saying to make them safe. In the 80's we only received 10 vaccines and there were only 1 in every 10,000 births with autism. Now it is 1 in every 150 births, and the kids get 36 vaccines. I know this bc 1 is mine! I know and many other parents of autistic children know, that when they were 15 months old they were verbal.Then with-in a day or 2 of the vaccine they stop talking, laughing, and loving. Why is that this kids are happy "normal" kids then they are not? I am speaking from experience not from what i read in Time mag. I am speaking for the parents I sit with day after day in therapy. And why was that autistic girl's family compensated for vaccine injury this year by the cdc? They use to say that autism was caused by mothers that didn't love are hold there children, we now know that this is just not true. We will soon learn the truth. To all you people who are criticizing Jenny, lets talk again when it is your child. Also I know that not all children with this disorder got it from vaccines but a lot did.

Go back to covering what you do so well ie Paris Hilton's club scenes or Britney's weekly breakdowns.
Jim Carrey is a brave soul fighting an unpopular battle for kids that have no voice.
Not like anyone in Hollywood cares about children who are poisoned by mercury or a motherload of other toxins in the 32 mandated infant vaccines anyway.
The CDC is globally warming our children's immune systems with gut and brain inflammation on the government's dime.
If Hollywood ever does get around to telling this story correctly, it will be in a horror flick.
This reporter obviously doesn't have kids or a clue!

There is still mercury in most vaccines. It is hid as Thimerosal.

Hey, for all the posters ill informed:
The World Health Organization has declared Chronic Illness the leading cause of death globally, not infectious disease we are spending billions on.
Autism is a chronic auto-immune illness, it is retarded to call it retardation.
Most of kids have normal to high IQ's, unlike the poster who called our kids retarded then couldn't even spell his post correctly.
I see you are gullible enough to believe the Pharma stoked CDC.
Well good luck, I hope to God your kids are part of the 1 in 67 (DOE number) unlucky enough to get Autism.
Unfortunately, if you keep your head under a rock long enough you will be paying the taxes to support them.
I hate to disappoint you but uh... vaccines don't guarantee immunity. The last few outbreaks were among the vaccinated.
Stop the hate speech and get educated on Autism before it strikes someone you love.

SHEEPLE! YOU IDIOTIC NUMB SKULLS ARE SHEEPLE! TAKE ALL THE DRUGS YOU WANT, TAKE MORE, JUST SO THAT WE CAN BE RID OF YOU! FDA AND CDC AND PHARMA COMPANIES... YEAH, THEY GIVE A CRAP ABOUT POOR LITTLE YOU... THEY CARE ABOUT THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THEY MAKE OFF OF MAKING YOU BELIEVE THEIR BULLS**T! YOU JUST GO AHEAD AND KEEP TAKING THEM DRUGS!

THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW BETTER WILL BE THE ONES TO SURVIVIE THIS MESS.

GARDISIL VACCINE IS FRIGGIN USELESS. YOU CAN BET THAT IT HAS KILLED THOUSANDS OF WOMEN ALREADY AND IS MAKING TENS OF THOUSANDS SICK. THERE ARE OVER 100 STRANDS OF HPV AND THIS USELESS "MIRACLE VACCINE" PROTECTS YOU FROM 4! AND AT THE MOST IT WILL PROTECT YOU FOR ABOUT 5 TO 6 YEARS.

SO SHOOT UP YOUR LITTLE ONES WITH THIS CRAP! WHEN THEY GET SICK, YOU WILL BE THE ONE TO BLAME! YOUR STUPIDITY IS WHAT IS KILLING OUR CHILDREN.

IDIOTS!

hey I know a fun game!! Let's round up all the vaccine pushers and any of their male offspring (grandkids,kids,whoever) and tie them down and jam a round of shots into them at the schedule they recommend. IT'll be fun! Don't you think it'll be fun?!!!

big whoop    

Kissyface, anyone who would follow his very intelligent comment with a diss to mothers living with the heartache of knowing & not knowing why their child will not be "normal" is a sad case of a living being, although sooooooooooooo veeeery well intellectually endowed, he lacks compassion which means so much more in the grand scheme of life than "brains" I could not explain it here -

He is not worth a response, nor is worth the life he has been given.

I don't have any children that have Autism, nor do I know any. But I did the reading on vaccines because I have children.
it's sad that anyone would show such inconsideration towards a child with such a horrible disability. It breaks my heart to see so many families so torn apart. And it truly breaks my heart to see so many people so uneducated and so convinced that these big companies actually have their best interest at heart.

But you know... you can only do for yourself and your family. It is up to everyone else to make up their own mind.

However... as cold as it may sound... I agree with #95. Maybe I just wouldn't have worded it like he/she did.

Kissyface, you're running your mouth about something you know nothing about and that's really ignorant. I have an autistic grandson, so I know of what I speak. You don't "catch" autism from vaccines. Autism is a genetic disorder that surfaces around the ages of 15 to 24 months, which just coincidentally happens to be the age range which most kids get their MMR vaccines. I can tell you that deep inside I had a suspicion that there was something wrong with that child long, long before the diagnosis was ever made. Most parents don't want to face it. They convince themselves that the kid was completely normal and suddenly whacked out when they had the vaccine, but when you go back and review old home videos you see that's simply not the case.

As for the Hannah Poling case, Hannah had a pre-existing neurological disorder BEFORE she started receiving immunizations. The only conclusion made by the courts was that the vaccines aggravated her pre-existing condition and brought on the autistic symptoms. In that case, her parents knew she had a mitochondrial condition, and it was THEIR decision that caused the neurological injury. The parents are both medical professionals and they should have known that Hannah was already in a precarious condition. She never should have been exposed to the VACCINE -- the strain of virus that was contained in the immunization. What happened to Hannah had nothing to do with mercury or thimerosal. It had to do her parents' bad decision to expose their already neurologically compromised daughter to the live virus contained in the vaccine. Take the time to read the ENTIRE case history, and not just pick and choose the details that fit your argument.

Everyone with a compromised immune system is in grave danger from unvaccinated children. I almost died in 2001 after my older grandson contracted chicken pox. I have Epstein-Barr Syndrome and, not knowing that exposure to chicken pox could be fatal, I helped my daughter out by babysitting while she worked. It was a chilling reminder how dangerous once eradicated childhood diseases can be. People who listen to junk science and misinformed celebrities are not only endangering their own family members, they're putting everyone they come in contact with in harm's way from diseases like chicken pox, pertussis, measles and mumps. It's irresponsible and borders on child abuse.

I will, however, admit that the HPV vaccine seems to be useless and I stand behind anyone -- including my daughters -- who refuse to receive it or allow their daughters to receive it. It's unproven and dangerous, and just another gimmick.

I may be running my mouth, but at least I have opened my eyes to the greed of Pharma.
You, granny, obviously still believe that the government knows best.
Best of luck to you.

I am out of here. You people make me sick with your absurd trust in drugs. DUUH!!! was right.

ya think- I don't think anyone thinks you "catch" autism from the vaccine so much as you form it due to one of the many ingredients-perhaps the disease virus, itself. I don't think anyone said it's only the mmr that may cause autism or any other brain injury like add.Kids get shots starting at 2 months and they all have ingredients like aluminum etc. in them so, yeah, by the time they're around 7 months even they could seem different. One time I called the local communicable disease control team to ask what "salk" polio vaccine meant. The health nurse didn't even know that basically means the old polio vaccine cultured on monkey tissue as opposed to the newer one that's cultured on human tissue. you would kind of think they should know that stuff-that freaked me out.
I have had EB virus for many years and am around kids alot and I have never heard of that thing about chicken pox you mentioned. My grandmother got Guillaine-Barre from a flu shot reaction in the 80's when she was around 80 years old. Our family doctor told her and all of us never to get another flu shot. My grandmother spent months in the hospital and would rather have had the flu.
There will always be diseases that people will die of-we can't stop it 100%. The trade off-all these brain-injured children may not have been the blessing that it seemed.

Given the amount of bad press and sensational stories attributed to the pharmaceutical industry, then it is no wonder many people don't feel as though they value anything besides the almighty dollar. BUT, "greed" and the publics'well being are not mutually exclusive. Pharma is a business, and as such the goal is to produce the best product possible, in hopes that it will become the standard of care for whatever it's indicated for (i.e. "own" its market niche).

Example: The global cancer market for 2011 is projected to be nearly $90 billion. Do you actually think there is a single drug company out there who wouldn't want to produce a drug to cure cancer if they stood to make $90 billion per year? It would be the most successful product ever - in any industry. So by the reasoning of some on this board, do you actually think this product secretly exists somewhere, and the multiple thousands of medical professionals working in this industry have all agreed to keep it secret so that the general public stays sick - all the while ignoring why they became healthcare professionals in the first place (to help people)?

Question their motivation, but don't question the bottom line. If you cure a disease, you own that market and the massive profit that accompanies it - simple economics, albeit hard to swallow.
