Pertussis Peggy and Whooping Wally:

How vaccinated people are spreading disease

(NaturalNews) In the 1990s, a new acellular pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine (DTaP) was introduced in the United States and other countries. Prior to that, a whole-cell pertussis vaccine (DTP) was used. The whole-cell vaccine had moderate efficacy (with multiple booster doses) but caused relatively high rates of seizures, other neurological disorders, brain damage and death in susceptible children. Due to the high rates of serious adverse reactions, the acellular vaccine was introduced in its place.

The acellular vaccine was believed to be more safe, but authorities made this tradeoff in exchange for a vaccine that was less effective. Not only was the new pertussis vaccine just partially effective when it was introduced, but in the past several years studies have shown that the way in which it is manufactured — to fight against some but not all strains of Bordetella pertussis toxins — actually promotes natural selection, or pathogen adaptation. The vaccine has caused pertussis microorganisms that are associated with whooping cough in humans to mutate and become more virulent. The vaccine is not effective against these new strains that are now circulating throughout society.

Here are a few of the many important papers documenting pertussis vaccine failures:

Emerging Infectious Diseases recently published “Bordetella pertussis strains with increased toxin production associated with pertussis resurgence.” A highly virulent strain of pertussis recently emerged from within pertussis-vaccinated populations. This new strain produces 1.62 times more lethal toxin than the old strain that the vaccine was designed to fight against. (1)

Pediatrics recently published “Why do pertussis vaccines fail?” Current pertussis vaccines fail due to genetic changes in the circulating strains of Bordetella pertussis and from inflated estimates of vaccine efficacy — the vaccine’s true efficacy may be as low as 40% — not because too many people are unvaccinated. According to the author of this paper, “Vaccine use has resulted in genetic changes in [pertussis toxin], [pertactin], and [fimbriae] [virulence factors] in circulating B pertussis strains, and it has been suggested that this has led to increased vaccine failure rates.” (2)

The journal Vaccine recently published “Imperfect vaccine-induced immunity and whooping cough transmission to infants.” Children that are vaccinated with DTaP to protect against Bordetella pertussis are more likely to contract whooping cough from Bordetella parapertussis. Apparently, “vaccine-driven pathogen evolution” selected for this other species of pertussis that can infect more efficiently after vaccination. According to the authors of this paper, “There is evidence from both prospective epidemiological surveillance and recent experiments in model organisms that immunization with the acellular vaccine may actually increase the host’s susceptibility to infection by B. parapertussis.” (3)

A recent paper published by the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences investigated the behavior of the Bordetella pertussis pathogen population under pressure from vaccination. Cases of pertussis in vaccinated children have increased dramatically since the introduction of the acellular pertussis vaccine. Vaccines that provide imperfect immunity (i.e., the acellular pertussis vaccine) can increase the level of pathogen circulation, making it more difficult to eliminate the disease. According to the authors of this paper, The fact that populations of B. pertussis may have evolved to circumvent the immune responses elicited by vaccination and to alter their virulence levels raises a number of questions concerning the design and use of future vaccines.” (4)

Although health authorities such as the FDA and CDC are acutely aware of the numerous studies documenting pertussis vaccine failures in highly vaccinated populations — due to the imperfect design of current pertussis vaccines which encourage the development of vaccine-resistant mutated strains — they blame unvaccinated people for outbreaks of the disease. They also insist that nearly everyone must be vaccinated to create a “herd immunity,” which would not be possible even if everyone were vaccinated (a 100% vaccine coverage rate), since the vaccine is so poorly effective against circulating strains.

FDA admits: Vaccinated people are spreading disease

There is also another problem with the pertussis vaccine — it allows vaccinated people to become silent carriers of the disease, spreading it to others. In fact, the FDA recently acknowledged in a press release that individuals vaccinated with an acellular pertussis vaccine “may still become infected with the bacteria without always getting sick and are able to spread infection to others, including young infants who are susceptible to pertussis disease.” (5)

The FDA was referencing an important new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. (6) In this study, infant baboons were vaccinated against pertussis at two, four, and six months of age. At seven months of age, they were exposed to the disease. After 24 hours, unvaccinated baboons were placed in the same cages as the vaccinated baboons. The vaccinated baboons infected them with the disease.

Although the pertussis-vaccinated baboons did not appear sick after being exposed to the disease, the pertussis pathogen, Bordetella pertussis, multiplied and colonized their respiratory systems. The vaccinated baboons were highly infectious and could transmit the disease to other baboons. They had become silent carriers and transmitters of pertussis.

Today, much like Typhoid Mary — an asymptomatic carrier and transmitter of typhoid fever — we need to be wary of Pertussis Peggy and Whooping Wally who are circulating pertussis everywhere they go. Thousands of people vaccinated against pertussis could be silent carriers of the disease, spreading it to those who come near.

Outbreaks of pertussis can no longer be blamed on unvaccinated people

This study provides strong evidence that herd immunity is not possible with current acellular pertussis vaccines. In addition, the practice of “cocooning” — vaccinating people who have contact with infants — is unlikely to benefit infants, especially when vaccinated people who don’t show any symptoms can still spread the disease.

This study also confirmed that the acellular pertussis vaccine induces an immune response inferior to natural infection, and antibody levels induced by vaccination do not correlate with protection against pertussis. (The vaccine increased antibody levels but failed to defend against infection and transmission of the disease.)

In summary, the pertussis vaccine has caused pertussis microorganisms to mutate and become more virulent. People vaccinated against pertussis are able to spread the disease. The pertussis vaccine poses significant risks of irreversible harm. Therefore, no one should be intimidated or coerced into vaccinating against their will. Parents must remain free to accept or reject vaccines for their children.

vaccineneed2 210x131 Interview: Merck Scientist Admits Presence of Tumor Causing SV40 in Vaccines

 

Dr. Maurice Hilleman, a prominent Merck scientist, made a recording in which he unveils the presence of SV40 and other live viruses in popular vaccines. Hilleman even laughs along with his colleagues at the fact that due to the vaccines first being tested on Russians, the Russian olympic team will be “loaded down with tumors.” Laughing can be heard in the background as his colleagues snicker over the presence of cancer-causing viruses in the vaccines you and your family may currently be receiving.

The video itself can be seen on NaturalNews TV, but the following transcript details every word of Dr. Maurice Hilleman as he spills the secrets of the vaccine industry:

Dr. Len Horowitz: Listen now to the voice of the worlds leading vaccine expert Dr Maurice Hilleman, Chief of the Merck Pharmaceutical Company’s vaccine division relay this problem he was having with imported monkeys. He best explains the origin of AIDS, but what you are about to hear was cut from any public disclosures.

Dr Maurice Hilleman: and I think that vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th century.

Narrator: 50 years ago when Maurice Hilleman was a high school student in Miles City Montana, he hoped he might qualify as a management trainee for the local JC Penney’s store. Instead he went on to pioneer more breakthroughs in vaccine research and development than anyone in the history of American medicine. Among the discoveries he made at Merck, are vaccines for mumps, rubella and measles…

Dr Edward Shorter: Tell me how you found SV40 and the polio vaccine.

Dr Maurice Hilleman: Well, that was at Merck. Yeah, I came to Merck. And uh, I was going to develop vaccines. And we had wild viruses in those days. You remember the wild monkey kidney viruses and so forth? And I finally after 6 months gave up and said that you cannot develop vaccines with these damn monkeys, we’re finished and if I can’t do something I’m going to quit, I’m not going to try it. So I went down to see Bill Mann at the zoo in Washington DC and I told Bill Mann, I said “look, I got a problem and I don’t know what the hell to do.” Bill Mann is a real bright guy. I said that these lousy monkeys are picking it up while being stored in the airports in transit, loading, off loading. He said, very simply, you go ahead and get your monkeys out of West Africa and get the African Green, bring them into Madrid unload them there, there is no other traffic there for animals, fly them into Philadelphia and pick them up. Or fly them into New York and pick them up, right off the airplane. So we brought African Greens in and I didn’t know we were importing the AIDS virus at the time.

Miscellaneous background voices:…(laughter)… it was you who introduced the AIDS virus into the country. Now we know! (laughter) This is the real story! (laughter) What Merck won’t do to develop a vaccine! (laughter)

Dr Maurice Hilleman: So what he did, he brought in, I mean we brought in those monkeys, I only had those and this was the solution because those monkeys didn’t have the wild viruses but we…

Dr Edward Shorter: Wait, why didn’t the greens have the wild viruses since they came from Africa?

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …because they weren’t, they weren’t, they weren’t being infected in these group holding things with all the other 40 different viruses…

Dr Edward Shorter: but they had the ones that they brought from the jungle though…

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …yeah, they had those, but those were relatively few what you do you have a gang housing you’re going to have an epidemic transmission of infection in a confined space. So anyway, the greens came in and now we have these and were taking our stocks to clean them up and god now I’m discovering new viruses. So, I said Judas Priest. Well I got an invitation from the Sister Kinney Foundation which was the opposing foundation when it was the live virus…

Dr Edward Shorter: Ah, right…

Dr Maurice Hilleman: Yeah, they had jumped on the Sabin’s band wagon and they had asked me to come down and give a talk at the Sister Kinney Foundation meeting and I saw it was an international meeting and god, what am I going to talk about? I know what I’m going to do, I’m going to talk about the detection of non detectable viruses as a topic.

Dr Albert Sabin…there were those who didn’t want a live virus vaccine… (unintelligible) …concentrated all its efforts on getting more and more people to use the killed virus vaccine, while they were supporting me for research on the live viruses.

Dr Maurice Hilleman: So now I got to have something (laughter), you know that going to attract attention. And gee, I thought that damn SV40, I mean that damn vaculating agent that we have, I’m just going to pick that particular one, that virus has got to be in vaccines, it’s got to be in the Sabin’s vaccines so I quick tested it (laughter) and sure enough it was in there.

Dr Edward Shorter: I’ll be damned

Dr Maurice Hilleman: … And so now…

Dr Edward Shorter: …so you just took stocks of Sabin’s vaccines off the shelf here at Merck…

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …yeah, well it had been made, it was made at Merck…

Dr Edward Shorter: You were making it for Sabin at this point?

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …Yeah, it was made before I came…

Dr Edward Shorter: yeah, but at this point Sabin is still just doing massive field trials…

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …uh huh

Dr Edward Shorter: okay,

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …in Russia and so forth. So I go down and I talked about the detection of non detectable viruses and told Albert, I said listen Albert you know you and I are good friends but I’m going to go down there and you’re going to get upset. I’m going to talk about the virus that it’s in your vaccine. You’re going to get rid of the virus, don’t worry about it, you’re going to get rid of it… but umm, so of course Albert was very upset…

Dr Edward Shorter: What did he say?

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …well he said basically, that this is just another obfuscation that’s going to upset vaccines. I said well you know, you’re absolutely right, but we have a new era here we have a new era of the detection and the important thing is to get rid of these viruses.

Dr Edward Shorter: Why would he call it an obfuscation if it was a virus that was contaminating the vaccine?

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …well there are 40 different viruses in these vaccines anyway that we were inactivating and uh,

Dr Edward Shorter: but you weren’t inactivating his though…

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …no that’s right, but yellow fever vaccine had leukemia virus in it and you know this was in the days of very crude science. So anyway I went down and talked to him and said well, why are you concerned about it? Well I said “I’ll tell you what, I have a feeling in my bones that this virus is different, I don’t know why to tell you this but I …(unintelligible) …I just think this virus will have some long term effects.” And he said what? And I said “cancer”. (laughter) I said Albert, you probably think I’m nuts, but I just have that feeling. Well in the mean time we had taken this virus and put it into monkeys and into hamsters. So we had this meeting and that was sort of the topic of the day and the jokes that were going around was that “gee, we would win the Olympics because the Russians would all be loaded down with tumors.” (laughter) This was where the vaccine was being tested, this was where… so, uhh, and it really destroyed the meeting and it was sort of the topic. Well anyway…

Dr Edward Shorter: Was this the physicians… (unintelligible) …meeting in New York?

Dr Maurice Hilleman…well no, this was at Sister Kinney…

Dr Edward Shorter: Sister Kinney, right…

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …and Del Becco (sp) got up and he foresaw problems with these kinds of agents.

Dr Edward Shorter: Why didn’t this get out into the press?

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …well, I guess it did I don’t remember. We had no press release on it. Obviously you don’t go out, this is a scientific affair within the scientific community…

Voice of news reporter: …an historic victory over a dread disease is dramatically unfolded at the U of Michigan. Here scientists usher in a new medical age with the monumental reports that prove that the Salk vaccine against crippling polio to be a sensational success. It’s a day of triumph for 40 year old Dr. Jonas E Salk developer of the (polio) vaccine. He arrives here with Basil O’Connor the head of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis that financed the tests. Hundreds of reporters and scientists gathered from all over the nation gathered for the momentous announcement….

Dr Albert Sabin: …it was too much of a show, it was too much Hollywood. There was too much exaggeration and the impression in 1957 that was, no in 1954 that was given was that the problem had been solved,  polio had been conquered.

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …but, anyway we knew it was in our seed stock from making vaccines. That virus you see, is one in 10,000 particles is not an activated… (unintelligible) …it was good science at the time because that was what you did. You didn’t worry about these wild viruses.

Dr Edward Shorter: So you discovered, it wasn’t being inactivated in the Salk vaccine?

Dr Maurice Hilleman: …Right. So then the next thing you know is, 3, 4 weeks after that we found that there were tumors popping up on these hamsters.

Dr. Len Horowitz: Despite AIDS and Leukemia suddenly becoming pandemic from “wild viruses” Hilleman said, this was “good science” at that time.

No vaccination – by professionals

My Journey Leaving the Anti Vaccination Movement

334642153_955f53fdec_z

I bet you freaked out just a little bit when you read the title right? Megan? Leaving the anti-vaccination movement? Sorry to disappoint you. Someone would have to prove to me that God does not exist, I would have to switch religions, and someone would have to conduct a study showing vaccines are safe, effective, and do not have adverse reactions. To be perfectly honest though, I really don’t like these labels. I don’t vaccinate, but I respect your right to do otherwise. Is there a pro-parental rights movement? If so, sign me up for that one.

Needless to say there’s a new blogger on the scene who’s written a fairly popular post about why she left the anti-vaccination movement. Surprisingly, I found her tone of voice refreshing. She seems nice and she’s super cute too. She’s wearing a red dress on her home page and it made me want to go out and get a hot picture of myself in a red dress too. Alas’ I am a mom and the last time I wore a red dress was a Christmas nightgown I got from my Grandma when I was seven. She’s dead and so is that nightgown.

Regardless, I’d really like to be her friend (I wonder if she has friends who don’t vaccinate). However, I think all friendships should start off on the right foot, which is why I feel like we need to talk about this post.

As a mother, I haven’t given vaccinations to thousands of children, let alone my own. My mom is a nurse. My sister is an educator who is rocking the “stay at home mama movement” like me. My other sister is a chiropractor with a degree in biology. My husband is a physician with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. I just have a law degree. Nothing special. Just a little something I picked up to help me read, write, research, and think critically. Although my mom vaccinated us on what was a much smaller schedule when I was younger, she regrets that decision and refuses to give vaccinations now. 

To be perfectly honest, no one in our family vaccinates. We can’t…now that we know what we know.

I have no idea what pediatric nurse practitioners learn in school. What I do know is that physicians learn next to nothing about vaccines. They are told to give them and shown a picture of a child in an iron lung or a kid with measles in a third-world country. They take immunology of course, but that is not the same as vaccinology. Despite their training, doctors (and scientists) know very little about the immune system which is why there is no medical cure for any chronic autoimmune disease. This should comfort us all.

Pediatricians of course, learn how to give vaccinations. They have to order these expensive vaccines with expiration dates and if you don’t vaccinate, they’re out money…lots and lots of money. They’re also out state excise taxes and insurance reimbursements. They are not trained to acknowledge or recognize vaccine injuries nor could they give you any drug to cure your child should they experience an adverse reaction. They didn’t learn any of this in their immunology class nor did they learn how any of the ingredients vaccines contain affect the immune system. To your surprise, they didn’t pour through the clinical trials or post-licensure studies. Very few have even read the package inserts because vaccines are presumed safe right?

Nurses are excellent at giving vaccinations. Seriously, they have a great technique (minus that one nurse who accidentally permanently injured my mom’s shoulder with a flu shot jab). They know how to store, prepare, and administer them. Most of the time this is done correctly, but I have never met a nurse who has had more training on vaccinations than a physician. Have you?

In Kid Nurse’s post she basically states that she took a pro-vaccine stance because there was no evidence to support that vaccines cause autism or shattered immune systems, because the small pox vaccine eradicated small pox, because a measles outbreak occurred in her area, she has a great uncle who is in a wheelchair because of polio, and she watched a 1-month old baby fight for its life from pertussis.

All of these are perfectly valid emotional reasons not to vaccinate. However, I think if you’re going to get on your camel and make a journey to the “other side, “of the desert, you should probably do so on accurate assumption. And, since I miss taking tests, let’s do this true/false style:

Small pox was eradicated by the vaccine. False. Small pox had greatly declined before the vaccine, increased after the vaccine in westernized countries, and was effectively eradicated in third-world countries due to the surveillance and containment quarantine program. The small pox vaccine was actually flawed, deadly, and ineffective, killing many and inflicting even more with serious adverse reactions. Small pox eventually exterminated itself when people had access to clean water, good food, clean living conditions, and proper hygiene. (For a very well-referenced book on the history of small pox, read this. Check out the package insert for the small pox vaccine here.)

Immunizations and vaccinations are interchangeable terms. False. Guys, we have got to stop throwing around the terms “immunization” and vaccination as if they’re synonymous. Immunization is the process by which a person becomes immune to a disease. Vaccination does not guarantee immunity and any immunity given is temporary.

There is supposedly no “causal” connection between vaccines and autism.  True. There’s just a whole bunch of studies where children who were vaccinated got autism; a vaccine package insert that listed autism as a potential adverse reaction; court cases won by children who developed autism post-vaccination; studies that link seizures, brain encephalopathy, and gut disorders to vaccines and studies that link seizures, gut disorders, and brain encephalopathy to autism; a vaccine removed from the market because it caused brain damage in children (i.e. autism & DPT), studies on the ingredients in vaccines that cause autism, and a whole bunch of empirical data that is super important unless…it pertains to autism.

The best way to protect a baby from pertussis is to vaccinate. False. Many people decide to vaccinate after they see a child injured from pertussis. Many people decide not to vaccinate because they have seen a child injured from the pertussis vaccine. These are both emotional arguments. The truth of the matter is that babies would be protected from many diseases if mothers acquired lifetime immunity via natural exposure and subsequently passed protective antibodies to their babies. Vaccines destroy this passive immunity and put our infants at risk. However, since neither the vaccine nor pertussis give lifetime immunity we now give ineffective, untested, dangerous, “Category C” Tdap vaccines to pregnant women.

That aside, as reported in 2012 by every major news outlet and confirmed by the CDC, the Dtap vaccine is ineffective and wanes over time which is why we see pertussis outbreaks occurring in almost exclusively vaccinated populations, why those vaccinated are becoming asymptomatic carriers for the disease, and why “the number of reported pertussis cases have been steadily increasing since the 1980s.” Other news sources have reported that the pertussis bacteria is becoming resistant to the vaccine and that B. parapertussis might actually be to blame for some of the outbreaks. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, even after five doses of Dtap a person’s chance of acquiring pertussis increases by 42% each year.

So, a vaccine gives us temporary (if any) immunity, with junk ingredients, and a chance of adverse reactions like eczema, bronchitis, respiratory infections, encephalopathy, cough (which I find ironic), and SIDS. No thanks. There are better way to protect ourselves and our children from pertussis.

Polio is scary. False…unless you actually had polio. Believe it or not, polio is asymptomatic in 95% of people who actually get it; and prior to polio vaccine licensure, anything with paralysis lasting longer than 24 hours would have yielded a polio diagnosis. Aseptic and viral meningitis, Coxsackie virus, hand foot mouth, transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Syphilis, DDT, arsenic, and lead poisoning etc. were all diagnosed as polio prior to the vaccine. Seriously, you could play dead and get a polio diagnosis.

After vaccine licensure, diagnostic criteria changed to make the vaccine look more effective. The 220, 365 cases of non-paralytic polio that occurred between 1960 and 1992 were now labeled “aseptic meningitis.” This is just one of many examples. Not to mention that the only cases of polio recorded between 1973 and 2000 were caused by the vaccine.  So we should all ask ourselves, did our dear friend, neighbor, or relative with polio actually have polio? If they did have polio, was it caused by the vaccine? Are they in a wheel-chair? If so, was it due to the barbaric methods used by the medical profession to treat polio? While we’re at it, does our dear friend, neighbor, or relative have cancer? If so, was it caused by the polio vaccine?

True/false aside, here are some really good reasons to leave the “anti-vaccination movement:”
Double-blind, inert/saline placebo-controlled clinical trials show vaccines are safe. None have been done to date. 

Studies show that vaccinated children are healthier than unvaccinated children. No large-scale study in the United States has been done to date. 

Studies show vaccines do not have adverse reactions. Currently, all vaccines have possible adverse reactions. 


Studies show vaccines do not cause any health conditions, including the ones they’re designed to prevent. 

All vaccines can and have caused the very diseases they’re designed to prevent. 
Studies show the herd immunity applies to vaccinations. It’s been presumed that herd immunity applies to vaccines.

Studies show vaccines actually prevent disease. Currently, not a single study to date has proven this. This hypothesis is dependent upon the assumption that every single person would have gotten the disease if they weren’t vaccinated and that vaccinations are the only way to prevent disease.

Vaccines gives lifetime immunity. Currently, not a single vaccine offers lifetime immunity.

And my favorite…science proves vaccines do a better job at preventing disease than my God-given immune system. If you don’t believe in God, “studies show biology missed something when it gave every man and animal on the planet an immune system.”

Clearly, I’m not taking a journey any time soon. Vaccines or not, I hope we can be friends. I’ve found this red dress I’m just dying to try on.

Cultured autism

Germs in the Gut May Affect Autism,

Study Finds

They found that children with autism have a very different make-up when it comes to gut germs, compared to children without autism. More importantly, chemicals produced by these bacteria may affect the brain, they told a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology.

It’s a small study and needs to be replicated, but the team at Arizona State University is seeking permission to try experimental fecal transplants to see if they might alter the symptoms of the children with autism.

Researchers are beginning to discover that the bacteria, fungi and yeast living in an on our bodies, called the microbiome, are extremely important to health. They can affect the body’s susceptibility to infection, they can affect body weight and may even play a role in cancer. There’s also some evidence they play a role in mental health, and this study suggests perhaps they are important in developmental disorders.

“If left unchecked … harmful bacteria can excrete dangerous metabolites or disturb a balance in metabolites that can affect the gut and the rest of the body, including the brain.”

Dae-Wook Kang of the Biodesign Institute of Arizona State University and colleagues tested 21 typical children and 23 with autism, looking at the DNA from all the different species of microbes living in their colons. They also looked at metabolites — the breakdown products — that have been linked with autism.

“Most gut bacteria are beneficial, aiding food digestion, producing vitamins, and protecting against harmful bacteria,” Kang said in a statement.

“If left unchecked, however, harmful bacteria can excrete dangerous metabolites or disturb a balance in metabolites that can affect the gut and the rest of the body, including the brain.”

They found the children with autism had different types of gut bacteria, and had less diversity in the numbers of different species of these bacteria, than kids without autism.

And when they looked at the metabolites, they found seven out of 50 were different in the children with autism. Some are known to play a role as message-carrying chemicals called neurotransmitters.

“Most of the seven metabolites could play a role in the brain, working as neurotransmitters or controlling neurotransmitter biosynthesis,” Kang said. “We suspect that gut microbes may alter levels of neurotransmitter-related metabolites affecting gut-to-brain communication and/or altering brain function.”

“We will try fecal transplants to children with autism.”

For instance, the children with autism says had lower levels of chemicals called homovanillate and N,N-dimethylglycine. Homovanillate is made when with neurotransmitter dopamine is broken down, while N,N-dimethylglycine is a component proteins and neurotransmitters. N,N-dimethylglycine is also sometimes used as a dietary supplement to treat autism symptoms, although it’s not been scientifically validated.

The next step is to try and see if changing the populations of gut bacteria affects symptoms.

“We will try fecal transplants to children with autism,” Kang said. “We will try to administer fecal material from healthy people to children with autism.”

That will require permission from several groups, including the Food and Drug Administration.

Autism spectrum disorder can range from the relatively mild social awkwardness of Asperger’s syndrome to profound mental retardation, debilitating repetitive behaviors and an inability to communicate. There’s no cure, but experiments with early treatment suggest it might be possible to help children overcome some difficulties.

Genetics are a large factor. Autism runs strongly in families, but genes don’t explain it all. Better diagnosis doesn’t explain all of it, either, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this documented a big jump among 8-year-olds diagnosed with the disorder in a two-year period, to one in every 68 children.

The grim reality of baby formula

The grim reality of choosing baby formula over breast milk

baby

by Derek Henry 

(NaturalNews) All mammals produce milk for their young and have been nurturing babies at the breast for thousands of years. It has only been in the last 6o years or so that babies have been given the highly ineffective and processed food called “formula” at the expense of breast milk, and the consequences are dire.

The sobering stats on breast feeding practices and baby formula

A woman feeding her baby exclusively breast milk for at least three months was done by a little better than 37 percent of the population in 2013, and only 16.4 percent were exclusively breastfeeding at six months, according to the Breastfeeding Report Card distributed by the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.

This effectively means that baby formula was introduced in over 60 percent of cases after three months of exclusive breast feeding and after six months nearly 85 percent of babies were now being fed baby formula in some capacity.

With the health consequences of baby formula showing five times the risk of gastroenteritis, twice the risk of developing diabetes, and up to eight times the risk of developing lymphatic cancer, the widespread acceptance of baby formula becomes a very dangerous practice.

Is baby formula the next best choice to breast milk?

Baby formula was never meant to be consumed on the widespread basis that it is today. The idea originated in the 1800s as a way to feed orphans whom otherwise would have starved. In this very narrow context, formula was a lifesaver.

However, formula is now considered a very popular choice, and in many cases, the immediate solution for new mothers. However, formula should not even be considered the second choice, let alone the first, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). They recommend, in order of importance:

1. Breast milk from mother
2. Mother’s own milk in cup or bottle
3. Breast milk from a milk bank or wet nurse
4. Formula milk

Perhaps it is time to set up a system that facilitates the implementation of this prioritized list.

Nutritional and cost comparison

Breast milk is natural, “live” food that contains living cells, enzymes, hormones, and antibodies of at least 400 other unique components. It also provides active immunity to protect the baby from disease.

On the other hand, formula is a “dead”, artificial food full of GMOs, refined sugars, hydrogenated fats, and isolated vitamins and minerals that are incredibly difficult to absorb. This is before you even consider the mixing process that may contain toxic tap water, and being heated in a plastic bottle that can expose the baby to hormone altering BPA.

In addition to that, consider the following:

• Breast milk contains appropriate levels of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates along with appropriate enzymes to digest them, whereas baby formula contains incomplete forms of each without the appropriate enzymes in order to absorb each efficiently
• Breast milk contains millions of living white blood cells in every feeding and is rich in immunoglobulins, whereas baby formula has no live white blood cells or any other cells and has no immune benefit
• Breast milk provides active and dynamic protection against infections of all kinds, whereas baby formula provides none of that protection

If that wasn’t enough reason to breastfeed, consider that the cost of baby formula and bottles can be up to $2000 a year and can “cost” you hours each day in preparation, where breast feeding can cost up to $1000 in additional food and takes very little in the way of preparation.

The choice for a healthier baby seems clear, as breast really is best.

PhD scientist refuses to vaccinate!

 

PhD Scientist and Biochemist Reveals Hidden

CDC Documents Showing Thimerosal In Vaccines

Increase Neurologic Disorders

By  on March 20, 2014

via Natural Cures Not Medicine

The CDC has been shunning the correlations between thimerosal and neurological disorders for a very long time. Although the FDA gave a two year deadline to remove the mercury based preservative from vaccines after the neurotoxin was banned in 1999, it still remains to this day in 60 percent of flu vaccines. A vaccine industry watchdog has now obtained CDC documents that show statistically significant risks of autism associated with the vaccine preservative, something the CDC denies even when confronted with their own data.

For nearly ten years, Brian Hooker has been requesting documents that are kept under tight wraps by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). His more than 100 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests have resulted in copious evidence that the vaccine preservative Thimerosal, which is still used in the flu shot that is administered to pregnant women and infants, can cause autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

Dr. Hooker, a PhD scientist, worked with two members of Congress to craft the letter to the CDC that recently resulted in his obtaining long-awaited data from the CDC, the significance of which is historic. According to Hooker, the data on over 400,000 infants born between 1991 and 1997, which was analyzed by CDC epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten, MD, “proves unequivocally that in 2000, CDC officials were informed internally of the very high risk of autism, non-organic sleep disorder and speech disorder associated with Thimerosal exposure.”

Factually, thimerosal is a mercury-containing compound that is a known human carcinogen, mutagen, teratogen and immune-system disruptor at levels below 1 part-per-million, and a compound to which some humans can have an anaphylactic shock reaction. It is also a recognized reproductive and fetal toxin with no established toxicologically safe level of exposure for humans.

Ward off colds and ‘flu at the Ear!

Thanks to Steve Barwick of The Silver Edge for this information :

Colloidal Silver and Colds:

A Safe, Simple and FAST Way to Stop Colds

Before They Get Started!

 

Dr. Mercola once recommended putting a couple of drops of standard household 3% hydrogen peroxide into your ears, using an eye dropper, the moment you feel a cold or flu coming on.

His rationale was that many viral infections actually start in the ears, and then spread. And that hydrogen peroxide could halt the process at its inception by killing the viruses before they spread throughout the respiratory tract.

This idea was apparently based on the work of Richard Simmons, M.D., who, way back in 1928, first hypothesized that colds and flu virus enter through the ear canal.

Dr. Simmons’ findings were dismissed by the medical community. But of course, the medical community has off-handedly dismissed many helpful and healthful ideas, only to find out 20 or 40 or even 60 years later those ideas were true.

My Personal Experience

So…the very next time I felt a cold coming on, I tried this idea at bedtime. I put three drops of hydrogen peroxide in my ears, one ear at a time. I could hear and feel the peroxide bubbling like mad in my ears.

And the very next day all cold symptoms were gone! The key, apparently, is that you have to catch the cold just as it is beginning. Once it’s full blown and the viruses have spread into the respiratory system, it’s too late.

But…I discovered there was a potential PROBLEM with this method…

…For several days after using the hydrogen peroxide drops in my ears, I got the distinct impression that it had slightly burnt the soft tissue on the inside of my ears and even diminished my hearing a bit. The slight stinging feeling eventually subsided. But…

Using Colloidal Silver in the Ears, Instead…

…The next time I felt a cold coming on, I used COLLOIDAL SILVER in my ears, instead of hydrogen peroxide. I used three drops of 10 ppm homemade colloidal silver in each ear.

 Here’s what I did:

 I simply laid down on one side, and used an eye dropper to administer the three drops. Then I waited six to eight minutes and turned over and drained the colloidal silver into a tissue.

Then I laid down on my other side and repeated the process in the other ear. Wow…

…what a difference! No burning or stinging sensation whatsoever. In fact, it was remarkably soothing, instead. No perceptible hearing loss afterwards. And once more the budding cold was knocked out before it could fully take hold.

It’s an interesting and very simple remedy – much safer, in my opinion than the use of hydrogen peroxide in the ears.

 And since that time I’ve used it successfully many, many times to stop fledgling colds from becoming full-blown colds.

 Works great on kids with symptoms of a fledgling cold, too!

Natural Honey Citrus Syrups for Coughs & Sore Throats

Image – TheYummyLife.com

 

Today’s herbal recipe is a fantastic home remedy based on traditional medicines for coughs and sore throats used since ancient times. These are easy-to-make, delicious natural syrups with ingredients that have been reported to have a whole host of additional health benefits.

Monica (the writer of the original article) goes into significant detail in areas such as the choice of honey to be used. This is something I very much approve of – and I wrote a report on honey recently going into great depth over the differences between honeys – which is considerable. It is very important for example to choose, if possible, local raw honey. There has been a recent scandal over honey being exported from India and China, and it was revealed that much of the imported honey was adulterated, including for example high fructose corn syrup and even ingredients which have been banned in some countries.

Anyway – the recipes for not just one but five different syrups are listed; lemon ginger honeyclementine cardamom honeylime and mint honeylemon rosemary honey and orange clove honey. Note also that these 5 recipes were the result of much experimentation: there is nothing to stop you creating your own custom versions if you so desire.

These recipes seem so yummy to me the I’m speculating that you might wish to partake of them even when you are in perfect health! Here is the link to the full recipe: Natural Honey Citrus Syrups for Coughs & Sore Throats Enjoy!

practice medicine in the State/Province of ________________, in the country of
_________________. My State/Province license number is _______________ , and (if the USA)
my DEA number is _______________. My medical specialty is ________________________
I have a thorough understanding of the risks and benefits of all the medications that I prescribe for
or administer to my patients. In the case of (Patient’s name) ___________________________ , age
_________ , whom I have examined, I find that certain risk factors exist that justify the
recommended vaccinations. The following is a list of said risk factors and the vaccinations that will
protect against them:
Risk Factor ____________________________________________

I am aware that vaccines typically contain many of the following fillers:
* aluminum hydroxide
* aluminum phosphate
* ammonium sulfate
* amphotericin B
* animal tissues: pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain,
* dog kidney, monkey kidney,
* chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg
* calf (bovine) serum
* betapropiolactone
* fetal bovine serum
* formaldehyde
* formalin
* gelatin
* glycerol
* human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue)
* hydrolized gelatin
* mercury thimerosol (thimerosal, Merthiolate(r))
* monosodium glutamate (MSG)
* neomycin
* neomycin sulfate
* phenol red indicator
* phenoxyethanol (antifreeze) * potassium diphosphate
* potassium monophosphate
* polymyxin B
* polysorbate 20
* polysorbate 80
* porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein
* residual MRC5 proteins
* sorbitol
* tri(n)butylphosphate,
* VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells, and
* washed sheep red blood
and, hereby, warrant that these ingredients are safe for injection into the body of my patient. I have
researched reports to the contrary, such as reports that mercury thimerosol causes severe
neurological and immunological damage, and find that they are not credible.
I am aware that some vaccines have been found to have been contaminated with Simian Virus 40
(SV 40) and that SV 40 is causally linked by some researchers to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and
mesotheliomas in humans as well as in experimental animals. I hereby warrant that the vaccines I
employ in my practice do not contain SV 40 or any other live viruses. (Alternately, I hereby warrant
that said SV-40 virus or other viruses pose no substantive risk to my patient.)
I hereby warrant that the vaccines I am recommending for the care of (Patient’s name)
_______________ _______________________ do not contain any tissue from aborted human
babies (also known as “fetuses”).
In order to protect my patient’s well being, I have taken the following steps to guarantee that the
vaccines I will use will contain no damaging contaminants.
STEPS TAKEN: ______________________________________________________
____________________________________________________________________
____________________________________________________________________
____________________________________________________________________
I have personally investigated the reports made to the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting
System) and state that it is my professional opinion that the vaccines I am recommending are safe
for administration to a child under the age of 5 years.
The bases for my opinion are itemized on Exhibit A, attached hereto, — “Physician’s Bases for
Professional Opinion of Vaccine Safety.” (Please itemize each recommended vaccine separately
along with the bases for arriving at the conclusion that the vaccine is safe for administration to a
child under the age of 5 years.)
The professional journal articles I have relied upon in the issuance of this Physician’s Warranty of
Vaccine Safety are itemized on Exhibit B , attached hereto, — “Scientific Articles in Support of
Physician’s Warranty of Vaccine Safety.”
The professional journal articles that I have read which contain opinions adverse to my opinion are
itemized on Exhibit C , attached hereto, — “Scientific Articles Contrary to Physician’s Opinion of
Vaccine Safety” The reasons for my determining that the articles in Exhibit C were invalid are delineated in
Attachment D , attached hereto, — “Physician’s Reasons for Determining the Invalidity of Adverse
Scientific Opinions.”
Hepatitis B
I understand that 60 percent of patients who are vaccinated for Hepatitis B will lose detectable
antibodies to Hepatitis B within 12 years. I understand that in 1996 only 54 cases of Hepatitis B
were reported to the CDC in the 0-1 year age group. I understand that in the VAERS, there were
1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from Hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0-1 year age group,
with 47 deaths reported.
I understand that 50 percent of patients who contract Hepatitis B develop no symptoms after
exposure. I understand that 30 percent will develop only flu-like symptoms and will have lifetime
immunity. I understand that 20 percent will develop the symptoms of the disease, but that 95
percent will fully recover and have lifetime immunity.
I understand that 5 percent of the patients who are exposed to Hepatitis B will become chronic
carriers of the disease. I understand that 75 percent of the chronic carriers will live with an
asymptomatic infection and that only 25 percent of the chronic carriers will develop chronic liver
disease or liver cancer, 10-30 years after the acute infection. The following scientific studies have
been performed to demonstrate the safety of the Hepatitis B vaccine in children under the age of 5
years.
_______________________________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________________________
In addition to the recommended vaccinations as protections against the above cited risk factors, I
have recommended other non-vaccine measures to protect the health of my patient and have
enumerated said non-vaccine measures on Exhibit D , attached hereto, “Non-vaccine Measures to
Protect Against Risk Factors” I am issuing this Physician’s Warranty of Vaccine Safety in my
professional capacity as the attending physician to (Patient’s name) _________________________.
Regardless of the legal entity under which I normally practice medicine, I am issuing this statement
in both my business and individual capacities and hereby waive any statutory, Common Law,
Constitutional, UCC, international treaty, and any other legal immunities from liability lawsuits in
the instant case. I issue this document of my own free will after consultation with competent legal

Happy-Children

SA Vaccination refusal school letter Nov 2012

I/We, ________________________________________________ the parents / guardians
of _____________________________________ hereby state that we have chosen to not
vaccinate our child due to medical (and/or) religious/conscience concerns.
We maintain that we have investigated the reported risks and benefits of vaccination. We
maintain we are making a responsible and ethical choice for the following reasons:
1. Vaccination is a medical intervention performed on a healthy child that has the ability
to injure or cause the death of the child;
2. The fact that there cannot be a guarantee that the deliberate introduction of live or
killed microorganisms into the body of a healthy child will not compromise the health
or cause the death of that child, either immediately or in the future;
3. there are no predictors in science that can give advance warning that injury or death
may occur in any particular child that is vaccinated;
4. there are no proven assurances that the vaccine will protect the child from contracting
the disease;
5. there is an absence of adequate scientific knowledge regarding the way vaccines
interact with the human body on a molecular level.
Therefore, we believe that vaccination is a medical procedure that could reasonably be
termed as experimental each time it is administered to a healthy child.
We accept full responsibility for the health of our child.
In the event any of “vaccine-preventable” disease outbreak in our community, our child is
the one at risk, our child will remain home. We understand your facility would exclude our
child and we will gladly make arrangements for our child stay home.
We are aware that Paragraph 16 of the NATIONAL EDUCATION POLICY ACT, 1996
(ACT NO. 27 OF 1996) ADMISSION POLICY FOR ORDINARY PUBLIC SCHOOLS states
that on application for admission, a parent must show proof that the learner has been
immunised against the following communicable diseases: polio, measles, tuberculosis,
diphtheria, tetanus and hepatitis B. We are aware that paragraph 16 states that if a parent
is unable to show proof of immunisation, the principal must advise the parent on having
the learner immunised as part of the free primary health care programme. We understand
that although we must be advised on immunising this is not a condition for admission. We
also acknowledge the advisement on vaccinating for the polio, measles, tuberculosis,
diphtheria, tetanus and hepatitis B and confirm respectfully that we decline all vaccinations
for our child.
We are also aware that section 9 (3) and (4) under the Bill of Rights on Equality states:
neither “the State” nor “any person” may “unfairly discriminate, directly or indirectly, against
anyone on one or more grounds” including “religion”, “conscience” and “belief”. We are
aware that ISASA (Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa) adheres to South
Africa’s Constitution and Bill of Rights
