***The following information was shared Saturday, Feb. 27 at EDUCATED: The Truth You Don’t Know Conference hosted by E.P. True Chiropractic***

Mary Tocco talked at length Saturday during the EMPOWERED: The Truth You Don’t Know about the health crisis among children in America.

Babies are given a Hep-B vaccine on the day of birth. About every two months, children go to the door for a well-baby visit in order to get vaccinated.

Tocco said babies get 38 vaccinations by the time they’re 18 months.

“This has never been done in history before,” Tocco said. “Never.”

Tocco had three vaccines by the age of five.

“Somehow I managed to live without 38 vaccines,” she said. “This is what’s normal.”

The average infant is put on antibiotics 1-3 times in the first year of their life. Formula is encouraged, but breastfeeding is often discouraged.

Five of six children will have at least one ear infection by their third birthday. More than half a million ear tube surgeries are performed on children every year.

Asthma is one of the leading causes of chronic illness in children and affects about seven million children in the United States for unknown reasons. Asthma was linked to 3,404 pediatric deaths in 2010.

Approximately 11 percent of children 4-17 have been diagnosed with ADHD.

Kids also suffer at an increased rate of auto-immune disorders — MS, thyroid disorders, lupus, eczema and psoriasis. Other increased conditions include Chron’s disease and gut problems — which can be caused by increased antibiotic use.

Tocco said Chrons Disease and gut problems among children were “nonexistent” in the 1970s. Now the U.S. leads in children suffering with Chrons.

About 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are diagnosed every year with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes represents about 90-95 percent of all diabetes cases.

“I grew up in a big town outside of Detroit, I knew one person who was doing injections for diabetes,” she said.

An estimated 17.1 million children have or had a psychiatric disorder.

“I thought childhood was supposed to be fun,” she said. “You know, kids are supposed to be care free and enjoy life. Why is it now statistically we have 5-year-olds that are trying to commit suicide? What are we doing to our children where they are no longer happy, peaceful, loving kids? I’ve met children at the age of five who are on four psych drugs because mom and dad can’t figure what’s wrong. The doctors can’t figure it out and they keep adding and adding and adding and the children are a disaster.”

Neurological disorders are on the rise, she said. Obesity affects one in three American kids. The prevalence of obesity in children more than tripled from 1971 to 2011.

Children are more often suffering from severe food allergies with things like eggs, milk, dairy, wheat, peanuts, etc. Pediatric cancer has increased along with seizure disorders and epilepsy.

“Cancer in babies, in children,” she said. “When I was growing up, quite a while ago, there was not one childhood cancer center anywhere, no childhood cancer facilities anywhere. Cancer was not a childhood illness. Now, look at all your big hospitals. They have city blocks for treating children with cancers and they’re begging people to donate to their cancer research on why these kids are having brain and bone and lung cancers. This is not normal. What are we doing to our children?”

And autism now affects one in 38 boys and one in 42 children. More than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder. It’s the fastest-growing developmental disability since 2000.

Tocco presented the following numbers involving autism:

1931: 1:100,000
1980: 1:10,000
1995: 1:500
2001: 1:250
2004: 1:166
2007: 1:150
2009: 1:10
2012: 1:88
2014: 1:68
2016: 1:42

“I’ve watched it grow,” Tocco said. “And I know vaccines are behind it. They are not the only cause, but I know they are behind it.”

According to a 2007 study, 54 percent of American children currently suffer from chronic illness.

Sudden infant death rates are skyrocketing as well.

“Being the greatest country with more doctors, more nurses, more technical stuff, more nutritional benefits, more supplements — all the tools, why are our children not thriving,” she asked. “They do more vaccines than any other country in the world. Why are they not amazing? You see, that right there is a red flag.”

All countries, as they increase their vaccinations, see an increase in sudden infant deaths, Tocco said.

In 1960, only three percent of children had any chronic illness, Tocco said.

In 1994, it increased to 12 percent. In 2006, it increased to 26 percent. In 2012, 1 in 59 children had autism. In 2018, 1 in 42 children had autism. In 2019, 1 in 2 children are on drugs for chronic illness.

As for sudden infant death rates, the U.S. ranks 32nd out of 33 countries.

“So, it’s up to you to decide if you want your children to be part of the common and normal,” she said. “It’s really up to you.

“Ignorance is not bliss. Ask the parents who went and got the MMR vaccine for their children because they were told measles is life-threatening and they were scared into getting it and their child regressed into severe autism. They would much rather take measles, whopping cough, chickenpox, roseola — all of it. They’d rather have that any day of the week than to be stuck with a child who is so critically ill.”

Tocco encouraged people to make their own decisions and do their own research. She even said not to trust her, but also cautioned against trusting any doctor.

“One of us is lying. One of us is not being honest. One of us is not being truthful,” she said. “I owe nobody nothing. Nobody owns me. What has changed in the last 20 or 40 years? And really, this is where it began, because when I grew up none of these illnesses were prevalent. I think I knew one cousin who had asthma, I knew one person with diabetes. I had 10 brothers and sisters — we rarely if ever went to the doctor.”

Tocco said that vaccines are at the very core of the healthcare system.

“The system replaced acute illness for chronic, long-term illness which has led to drug dependency,” she said. “I don’t know about you, but I feel this is unacceptable. If (pediatricians) are so good at what they’re doing, why are kids so sick?”

Prior to pediatricians, she said, chronic illness was prevalent in just three percent of children.

She quoted a professor from the University of Toronto who warned years ago that the generation of children would be the first generation to have their parents outlive them.

Tocco shifted to the FDA.

In 2009, there were 1,742 drug recalls. In 2015, there were 2,789.

“The problem is, nobody is told they’re recalled,” she said. “Doctors don’t often tell you. They don’t call your hen a drug they’ve been prescribing for five years do they get on the phone and call every patient who has been on that drug? No.”

Indiana School of Public Health said on Aug. 30, 2019 that the process for approving and manufacturing of prescription drugs isn’t as tightly regulated as it should be.

Tocco also warned against excessive use of Tylenol. She said 50,000 people go to the ER because of liver failure every year to Tylenol. Bayer Aspirin increases stroke risk by four times as well.

“How many of your doctors are telling you this,” she said.

Dr. Mayer Eisenstein was a medical doctor, an attorney and had a degree in public health she said. He practiced in the greater Chicago area for years and had 25,000 babies born naturally or in birthing centers. He encouraged breastfeeding and discouraged vaccinations.

As of 2015, his clinic had cared for more than 50,000 children.

“Virtually no autism, asthma, allergies, respiratory illness or diabetes in his unvaccinated patients,” she said. “None. Very impressive statistic.”

Tocco said that based on national statistics, his practice should have had about 735 diagnosed cases of autism.

“He had zero,” she said. “Now if that isn’t a test to basically show that we really are — autism is a man-made epidemic.”
