Yeah, I’m totally going there. I know this vaccination subject is pretty touchy with the undertones of intolerance, discrimination, and bigotry and all, but after seeing a letter written to a “mom who decided not to vaccinate her kids against measles,” I just couldn’t sit by while parents are thrown under the bus and innocent kids get sick and die.

To be perfectly frank, I was a bit offended that this letter wasn’t written to dads too but for the sake of prioritizing stupid, there are more important things to address…like the fact that kids in this country do not “get sick and die” from measles. Hello? When was the last time a kid died from measles in America? Here’s a clue…it wasn’t yesterday. Disney ain’t deadly and neither are the measles.

So here goes.

Dear Mom who thinks I should vaccinate my…

    Hi Adele.
    Here’s some more evidence regarding measles and vaccinations.
    (I’m not expecting you to post this comment either, but you really should ask yourself why you won’t engage in a debate, having posted such a polarising article):

    Please note the point about herd immunity. 95% is required for herd immunity, which is incidentally what you are now relying on to keep your children safe.

      Here is an extract from my book I am currently writing to address your point on herd immunity….’Vaccine propaganda – distinguishing the myths from the facts:

      Perhaps one of the most widely used arguments amongst the pro-vaccinators is the theory of herd immunity. In 1933, a researcher called Hendrich was studying Measles in the USA during 1900-1931 before the measles vaccine was produced. He observed epidemics of illness only occurred when less than 68% of children had developed a natural immunity to it. He coined the term herd immunity based on the principle that children build their own immunity after suffering from or being exposed to the disease (not after being vaccinated). Later on, Vaccinologists adopted the phrase and increased the figure from 68-95% with no scientific justification. This new theory of herd immunity was then popularised to the public to suggest that 95% vaccine coverage must occur to achieve effective immunity to the disease. In short, Hendrich’s study was manipulated to promote vaccine programmes and provide a scape goat for unsuccessfully immunising every patient who received vaccinations.

      Viral shedding: the elephant in the big PHARMA room:

      When vaccines are administered the virus then sheds via one of the body’s excretory pathways, making it potentially contagious. Even if the virus injected is weak or attenuated this will still occur. Worst still, unlike an unvaccinated carrier of a disease, the vaccinated carrier becomes an “asymptomatic carrier” i.e. One who is capable of spreading the disease without themselves showing the usual signs or symptoms. This makes the vaccinated individuals effectively untraceable in the event of an outbreak or epidemic.

      Vaccine-induced immunity versus natural immunity:

      There is a world of difference between artificial vaccine-induced immunity, and naturally-acquired immunity, attained through contracting and successfully fighting off a disease. The human immune system is vastly more complex and sophisticated than we understand, and is made up of specific and non-specific parts. A vaccine does not closely resemble natural immunity in many ways, including:-

      1- Only engendering a specific response (acquired or antigen specific rather than innate, immediate response known as non-specific and comprising 98% of immune resistance)

      “In the 1980’s Paola’s team at the Pasteur Institute in Paris showed that 98% of the immune response triggered at the early stages of infection is non-specific. [1]
      (Nature Medicine, April 2000)

      2- Taking a completely different point of entry [directly into the bloodstream rather than through physical barriers (skin), chemicals factors (nasal secretions, saliva) and biological features (flora in the GI tract). ]

      3- Not conferring lifelong immunity (booster shots required or immunity fades)’

        Hi Adele, thank you for replying. Why have you not addressed my first comment and its links? What can you say to the fact that Mr Wakefield fabricated a study and has been disbarred from practice? I raised far more points than herd immunity!
        I sincerely applaud your writing a book on the subject. I suppose the biggest white elephant in the non-vaccination camp is that of freeriding whilst others vaccinate. I am not a doctor, nor an immunologist – I don’t think that you are either, no? – but I understand that naturally-acquired immunity means that one had to survive the illness. As was the case with measles when no one was vaccinated – many did survive. But others died. Or, they survived but lost their hearing. The same could be said of smallpox: many survived, poc-marked and immune. But millions of people (most of the Native Americans, in fact) did not.
        Are you really arguing that the smallpox and polio eradication (eradications!) by vaccination should not have happened? That it would somehow be better if we were still staving off epidemics rather than living in a smallpox free world?

        Hi Katie, My chapter on unvaccinated children will be covering all the usual skepticism and will be sure to let you know when it has been published. I believe Andrew Wakefield was made a scapegoat in a sinister cover up of truthful and valid science. Have you watched any of he documentary films listed on my YouTube channel Offgridparentingtv? The vaccines revealed series provides an in depth wealth of information form a vast array of medical professionals and I would encourage you to sit through it before making your mind up. In the mean time here is a list of 30 solid scientific studies to help proof that vaccines are ‘unavoidably unsafe’…https://www.facebook.com/notes/vaxxed-a-revolution-for-choice/30-solid-scientific-studies-that-prove-vaccines-cause-the-brain-damage-that-is-l/165199450554316

    Dear Adele
    Life intervened. But I am still keen to engage.

    The General Medical Council does not “make scapegoats”. Disciplinary hearings are conducted as legal trials, with proper evidence, with representation for any doctor under question, and an opportunity to respond to all allegations. Furthermore, the GMC does not take the decision to discipline – much less disbar – a practitioner lightly; any such decision reflects on the profession as a whole. I’m afraid that there is cogent, clear proof that Andrew Wakefield stepped far beyond his professional remit, misled the medical community and large swaths of society. He is no longer a doctor. In an age when the expert is not trusted, this may not sound as alarming as it is. But the science of the human body is immensely complex and sophisticated. It SHOULD take over ten years to study and qualify to speak with any authority on medical matters. It reassures me when I attend any medical practitioner that they have all of that knowledge, tested repeatedly and under pressure, as well as years of experience. Of course there is a margin of error with medicine, and it is a growing science. But I am baffled that anyone would take the word of someone who has been stripped of his qualifications for professional misconduct, and undeclared conflicts of interest (he received substantial payouts from lawyers representing several autistic children and their families) over a body of respected practitioners. What possible basis would the GMC have to “make a scapegoat” of someone in this way? Medicine has a long history of admitting its errors (see the revised opinions of tobacco, of ECT, of treatment of mental illness). If Andrew Wakefield was right, then it would have been in the GMC’s interests to uphold his qualifications, and indeed, to support further studies. The lives and wellbeing of children are at stake – the GMC is bound to protect those interests. You cannot avoid the reality that it ruled in children’s interests to entirely discredit Wakefield’s claims.

    As to the suggestion that vaccinations cause autism – I’m afraid that these studies examine the connection between toxicity and autism, rather than vaccination specifically. There has never been any question that autism appears to be caused by environmental factors as well as genetics. In a post-industrialised world, it’s not surprising, and joins a long list of illnesses, most notably cancer, that have thrived as a result of our modern lives. And none of these counter the most recent studies, which have debunked Wakefield’s/other anti-vaccination studies.

    But autism did predate the industrial ages. References to autistic children (retrospectively diagnosed, of course) begin as early as the 16th century. In an age in which religion was referred to as the explanation for everything, it is not unreasonable to suppose that any manifestation of illness be attributed to supernatural or religious sources rather than identified as physical ailments. As with many things – we will never know. But we cannot say with any certainty that autism has arisen as a result of vaccination.

    I would still be interested to hear your thoughts on the eradication of polio and smallpox by vaccination.

      As mentioned previously, I am currently writing a book which includes the topic of vaccination. The depth of your debate here is beyond the scope of a comment response. The following documentary series and films showcase the topic of Andrew Wakefield and affords him the opportunity to speak for himself. I’m sure you’ll agree that watching him speak directly is far better than any speculation that both you and I, or anyone else for that matter, can offer on the matter:

      You can watch these fo free by signing up on their websites or certain episodes by visiting YouTube.

      Furthermore here is an extract from some of my writing so far on smallpox topic….

      Here is a link to show the history of the decline of childhood disease…

      The Unvaccinated Child – Chapter three:
      …’Furthermore, Smallpox had a rise in death rates coinciding with the time vaccination laws were enforced. (http://www.whale.to/vaccine/wallace/3.html). Here is a timeline of events to illustrate what occurred prior to the introduction of mandatory vaccination:
      *In 1853 – mandatory vaccination began in England.
      *In 1857 – non-compliance of the smallpox vaccine was punished with fines or imprisonment. The register general of England reports official figures to be over 14,000 deaths from smallpox from the years 1857-1859.
      *Between 1863-1865, the death toll had risen to 20,000 from smallpox.
      *A few years later, the death toll rose to 45,000 between the years 1870-1872.
      *1885 – the citizens of Leicester in England (where vaccination rates were 95%) began a rally comprising of 80,000 people to protest mandatory vaccination after they reported some of the worst epidemics of smallpox in the country. Death rates then plummeted after the mandation was dropped and vaccination rates fell to just 5%. Strict hygiene and quarantine with the care of a naturally immune nurse was implemented as a long term health strategy.
      *Late 1800’s – Similar events of epidemics occurred throughout the world in: Germany, Japan, Austria, Ireland, Holland, Scotland and USA despite mandatory vaccination laws securing ‘herd immunity’.
      (Thompson….Dissolving Illusions)

      Aside from Smallpox; the death rates from Polio, Diptheria, Measles, and Whopping cough can all be seen to have already been in the tail-end of a steady decline before the advent of their respective vaccinations.’ (The Unconventional Parent’s Guide to Off-Grid Prenting)

      Here also is a link to my research on the topic of Polio written by Dr Suzanne Humphries..

      “Unbeknownst to most doctors, the polio-vaccine history involves a massive public health service makeover during an era when a live, deadly strain of poliovirus infected the Salk polio vaccines, and paralyzed hundreds of children and their contacts. These were the vaccines that were supposedly responsible for the decline in polio from 1955 to 1961! But there is a more sinister reason for the “decline” in polio during those years; in 1955, a very creative re-definition of poliovirus infections was invented, to “cover” the fact that many cases of ”polio” paralysis had no poliovirus in their systems at all. While this protected the reputation of the Salk vaccine, it muddied the waters of history in a big way.”
