Whooping Cough Rapid Rise After 20-Year Use of Poor Quality Vaccines
rate of whooping cough, or pertussis, has exploded in America in the last
few years. A brand new study confirms what scientists already expected.
They confirmed that the burgeoning comeback of whooping cough is due to
introducing new, "safer" vaccines 20 years ago. Safer, meaning
fewer side effects and minus the previous toxin that was used, but not safe
for long-term protection from disease.
bacteria affects upper respiration and creates shortness of breath. The
disease, which can be fatal to babies, actually almost disappeared in the
late '70s - so why did newer vaccines keep appearing? It seems to have caused
a type of resistance. The weaker vaccine has caused damage; arguably more
than foregoing the vaccine altogether.
'80s it was believed to be more hushed, spreading undiagnosed. In 20 years,
however, it has "bounced back with a vengeance." Europe is seeing
the same problem. Last year in the U.S., there were 40,000 cases, and strong
strains among kids in 2010. California, for instance, saw an epidemic of
it in 2010, especially among their Latino community - the situation was
rife with calls for mandatory vaccination - for the very vaccine that could
be spiking the disease.
the '90s, kids would receive a whole-cell vaccine, made from pertussis bacteria
called Bordetella pertussis. The bacteria were killed by formalin or other
chemicals. The vaccines also contained a toxin that would cause infants
to have fever, severe pain at jab site and would even get febrile seizures,
fainting and turn pale, "floppy," and unresponsive.
time, parents sued the manufacturers successfully saying this whole-cell
vaccine led to long-term brain damage. A 1991 Institute of Medicine report
tried to refute that claim, but by then many pertussis vaccine makers scurried
out of the market. Then, Congress made a federal vaccine injury compensation
program for vaccine-injured families.
the vaccines are "acellular" consisting of refined pertussis proteins
that are supposed to create immunity, but without the toxic effects. It
is interesting to note that the toxic ingredients often found in vaccines
such as thimerasol (mercury) and aluminum are adjuvants - carriers to make
the vaccine more effective. So the strength of it is actually based on its
toxicity. Similarly, chemotherapy's strength (or efficiency) in zapping
cells (and immunity) is because of its toxicity - that's why patients are
often told to avoid things like green tea! It would almost undo the chemo,
or weaken its effects, prolonging the procedure.
California physicians at Kaiser Permanente studied results comparing the
old versus new. The shots are a four-dose series called DTP (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis)
given to children before age two. Children born between '94 and '99 are
when Kaiser was gradually introducing the new vaccines. Children studied
either had only the old, only the new, or a combination of both.
children in the main study, 138 who had received the new, weaker acellular
shots, got pertussis during California's 2010-2011 epidemic. Children receiving
only the acellular vaccine were more than 5.6 times likely to become ill,
mainly with pertussis, than children receiving the old whole-cell vaccine.
What's more, in a different recent study in Australia, the kids receiving
acellular vaccines were six times more likely to get sick, versus the old.
And another looking at California found an eight-fold increase in illness.
to emphasize that the epidemic is occurring among people who received vaccines.
Because during an epidemic we will hear all kinds of media stressing an
epidemic and why we should get vaccinated, or else we are so irresponsible
to the rest of the population. And now we are teetering on the beginnings
of forced vaccination for the "good of public safety."
author, pediatrician Nicola Klein says:
now finding out that the acellular vaccine's doesn't offer protection
for as long. It does work well in the short term. But there was definitely
a tradeoff in phasing out the whole-cell vaccine.
whole-cell vaccines are still used in lower-income countries where they
are seeing less incidents of aggressive come-back pertussis. Researchers
attribute that to more antigens - proteins triggering the immune system
- considered better by allopathic standards than the acellular vaccines
used in the last 20 years, attributing to more disease. (see a better solution
international meetings to discuss the problem, some wanted to go back to
whole-cell vaccines. Of course the preferred solution is to create a whole
new generation of vaccines! And that could take a decade - major fail!
pediatrician, Scott Halperin, said there's no going back to the whole-cell
had to go - It's a vaccine that would not be accepted in the societies
we have in North America and Europe. As much pertussis as we're seeing
now, we're still seeing in most places pretty good control in the very
young. We're seeing lapsed immunity in school-age kids and we have to
solve that. But those kids aren't dying.
pretty flimsy - children are the most at risk for death from contracting
whooping cough. But even if they aren't keeling over, this is only the beginning
of the effects. If these children, now older, are contracting a serious
disease that almost disappeared - what will their immunity look like at
age 30, 40, 50?
scientific community back in the 1990s felt that it had pertussis solved
... We're now seeing that we don't have a solution yet.
obvious that public safety actually falls last on the list if these newer
vaccines were not studied carefully before they came on the scene in the
'90s. In fact, public safety has now been effectively threatened. People
coming down with the same disease they were vaccinated from is actually
an alarming sign of immune dysfunction - most likely exacerbated by the
vaccine. If we're only just now discovering this after 20 years of using
them, it's safe to say that we should have a choice to vaccinate or not
and be able to draw our own conclusions, rather than be at the whim of doctors
who are repeating CDC warnings and listening to their sponsored drug makers.
want to briefly suggest looking into homeopathic flu nosodes as a much,
much safer and profound way to alleviate disease - no part of the disease
exists in them. They were around since the 1800s but were quelled by the
coming pharmaceuticals that could be patented. Even Louis Pasteur reportedly
admitted on his death bed that the theory behind the homeopathic solutions
(Terrain theory) was more sound than his belief in Germ theory which is
what promoted vaccine use from the beginning. And please see a good naturopathic
doctor to build that immunity, alleviate toxicity and empower yourself in
the face of disease epidemics.
