Social media giant Facebook says it will remove groups and pages that spread ‘misinformation’ about vaccinations on its site. It’s the latest step Facebook and others are taking to stem the tide of misinformation on social media sites.
When I first became a parent some years ago, I did my research on the risks, benefits and known dangers of vaccinating your child. The Internet was still in its infancy, pardon the pun, but even at that time there much evidence to pour over. I concluded my research by deciding to not have our kids vaxxed, opting instead for raising them in a healthy and largely organic lifestyle. Today my children are robust and healthy and with one or two notable exceptions, almost never need to visit the doctor.
“And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.” Ezekiel 47:12 (KJV)
In 2019, with the maturation of social media, people are able to easily have access to incredible amounts of information that show the dangers inherent in having your child vaccinated, and as a result, parents all over America are choosing to opt-out of filling their child with these toxic injections. The pharmaceutical lobby is angry at the loss of profits, and now Facebook is starting to censor pages for anti-vaxxers.
NTEB has for many years alerted you to dangers of vaccinations of all types. We showed you that the flu shot has wrecked the lives of adults and children alike, and showed you the dangers of the HPV shot for teenage girls. Deciding to vax or not to vax is a highly personal decision, and is one that should not be made lightly. But the mere fact that Facebook is now censoring pages that expose the dangers should show you just how dangerous vaccinations really are.
Facebook steps up fight against vaccine ‘misinformation’
FROM THE AP: Facebook said Thursday it will take its cue from global health organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which have publicly identified verifiable vaccine hoaxes.
If groups and pages spread those hoaxes, they won’t appear in recommendations or in predictions functions when searched for in Facebook. Ads with similar information will be rejected.
And content that contains the misinformation won’t be shown on Instagram Explore or hashtag pages.
Federal health officials have attributed a recent spike in the number of measles cases in part to misinformation that has made some parents shun the vaccine.
The bogus notion that vaccines cause autism — kicked off by a now disproven study from 1998 — didn’t start on social networks but has spread there. While overall vaccination rates remain high in the U.S. according to the Centers for Disease Control, the number of kids under two who haven’t received any vaccines is growing. The CDC attributes much of this to lack of health insurance — uninsured kids are much more likely to be unvaccinated than children who have health insurance.
Vaccination against a list of diseases is required to attend school in the U.S., but 17 states allow some type of non-medical exemption for “personal, moral or other beliefs,” according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. READ MORE

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,621 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,600 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
