Shenina West: Hello and welcome to Mom Lounge TV. I am your host Shenina West, and today I am pleased to announce Dr. Lauren Feder as our guest. She is a nationally recognized physician, who specializes in homeopathic medicine, and she is also affiliated with the Holistic Pediatric Association. She is a writer and has published two books, and I am pleased to welcome you, Dr. Feder to the show, Mom Lounge TV. Thank you for joining me. Lauren Feder: Thank you very much. Shenina West: As you know I discovered you, I was thinking, probably about two- and-half years ago when my daughter actually had a severe reaction to Prevnar, and that really led me on the search to discover vaccines and be better educated. As I understood from your workshop, that Prevnar is a vaccine given for pneumonia, am I correct? Lauren Feder: It is given for a myriad of the illnesses that includes pneumonia and meningitis, and even ear infection. Shenina West: Well, Dr, Feder, we would also like to bring up Hepatitis B, because I know, and it was a surprise to me to learn afterwards that it was something that was administrated to my daughter within the first 24 hours of her birth, and that it was shocking to me that no one had come to ask me. Lauren Feder: The rational behind the Hepatitis B shot, is that if a child is born to a mother who has Hepatitis B, he/she could contract it, and it could be a very chronic and serious illness. But Hepatitis B is not a typical childhood illness like chicken pox, it is in more high risk groups of people who are IV drug abusers, hospital workers who are handling blood product, people who have gotten blood transfusions, prostitutes, it is known as an STD or Sexually Transmitted Disease. So a lot of parents are saying, I understand that, that makes perfect sense, but I am not at risk for that, and my husband is not at risk for that, why are you offering this shot, and yes, it is offered in the hospital, the first 24 hours, and the reasoning being is, they don't want to leave anyone behind. Shenina West: There is always that concern with mercury in the vaccines, and I have heard that they have stopped putting mercury in the vaccines, and of course, with the mercury in the vaccinations, the concern is with Autism. Lauren Feder: Well, that's a good question. Everyone puts a lot of emphasis on mercury, but I have to say Shenina, really mercury is not the only celebrity here, and there's many constituents than what we call cipients, that are in the vaccine, that can have side effects. Shenina West: Let's talk about the topic of polio, and as I understand, in the past, that it was actually a real virus, and did they correct it today as a synthetic version? Lauren Feder: According to the research, is that the polio virus vaccination has to be produced and grown on monkey tissue. So - but there are many other constituents as well. Shenina West: And what are the side effects that you would say from the monkey tissue, for instance, I do recall that there was a concern that this could invoke cancer in children. Lauren Feder: Well, what has happened is, they started to find that when we are using tissues from animal or humans, that you can also have viruses. So they would be using monkey tissue which sometimes would be infected with what we call, monkey virus or simian virus, and they, went ahead and adopted the name Simian virus 40 or SV40. For example, I spoke to a woman whose son in the late `90s was two years old, and was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and unfortunately he passed away, and they found on autopsy that the tumor was full of SV40. Shenina West: Well, Dr. Feder, you had mentioned Titers and how one of your patients had come in to get a blood test, and I am just curious to know is that something that we could also do for our children?. Lauren Feder: The idea of having a blood test to check Titers, it's actually very provocative, the idea is are we - could we check our blood to see if I am actually immune. I had a
