Death Certificate Clerk Reveals How Cause of Death Reporting is Subjective and CDC Statistics are Not Reliable When Making Public Health Decisions
In our recently published article on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) we referenced how the CDC and WHO list 130 official ways for an infant to die according to official categories of death, but adverse reactions to vaccines is not one of them. Joy Fritz is a Death Certificate Clerk, and she recently published some of her observations in the field of death recording on Facebook. Joy relates how she and her husband were concerned about the severity of the flu season as was being reported in the media, and that she "started reading the FDA package inserts for different flu immunization options to get informed on which immunizations might be safest for our <1 year old and 6 year old." She states that she wanted to make an informed decision for her family, and that "What I ultimately wanted to compare was the risk of death." She learned that public records on influenza deaths stated that there were no deaths related to adverse reactions to flu medications or flu shots. However, being in the field of death recording, she dug deeper, and has presented her research and experience to the public. She writes: "Our current system for capturing mortality rates can and does provide a mostly uninvestigated and inaccurate picture of what causes a death. The process for creating and registering causes of death for public records is a complicated, convoluted, politicized, completely open to both ignorance and the manipulations of personal, professional, and governmental interests. I'm the one creating these statistics and I offer you this: If you take one thing away from this, take away a healthier skepticism about even the most excepted mainstream, nationally reported, CDC or other ‘scientific’ statistics." I am thankful that Joy reached out to us here at Health Impact News and encouraged us to share her perspective to our readership.
