Measles – Is there really a need for alarm? Things to think about and research BEFORE you panic
1. There will always be pockets of measles and the numbers don’t change drastically from year to year.
Reality – there are a few hundred cases of the measles around the US every year. There’s no emergency “outbreak.”
Measles stats here: https://www.cdc.gov/measles/cases-outbreaks.html states 349 cases last year (2018)
2. Why is there such a fear when measles has not been a fatal disease in years?!
1963 -when the vaccine debuted – deaths from measles was 0.2 per 100,000 in the US https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/vsus/mort63_2a.pdf (pg 18) this would equate to approx. 378 deaths
“Before 1963, approximately 500,000 cases and 500 deaths were reported annually, with epidemic cycles every 2–3 years. However, the actual number of cases was estimated at 3–4 million annually.” https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/meas.html
So 378 deaths from MILLIONS that contracted it – and the media is going crazy over 30+ cases of measles?!?!
According to John Hopkins University, Medical ERROR is the third leading cause of death in the US ALONE – killing between 250,000-440,000 people every year in the states. Why is the media not screaming about this?!
3. Some measles cases are caused by the vaccine, which injects a live virus into children, some of which will end up developing measles. 38% of measles cases that were tested in the 2015 US outbreak were vaccine strain measles.
“During the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees (3). Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences”.
4. While there have been no confirmed deaths from measles in the US in 10 years, there have been more than 400 deaths reported from the MMR vaccine. Did the media forget to mention that important fact?
Do you know anything about the 1986 Childhood Vaccine Injury Protection Act ? Or that vaccine companies are exempt from liability? That’s right, you cannot sue them if your child should have a reaction to any vaccine.
US tax payers have paid out over $4 BILLION in damages and deaths to vaccine victims and their families.
5. Could Big Pharma be pushing a fear campaign – because they don’t want you to realize that having measles can actually REDUCE your risk of cancer and heart disease later in life — according to the real science not funded by pharma.
In fact, humans are supposed to naturally contract these benign and temporary illnesses in our childhood years, so that we attain natural immunity against many cancers and other chronic disabilities as adults. These illnesses prime our immune system so it can handle bigger things down the road — or even protect us from bigger things, like REDUCE CANCER RISK
*****Studies showing the BENEFITS of getting measles (and mumps)*******
Wild measles and mumps protects against heart problems. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26122188
Wild Mumps: Researchers investigated whether mumps might engender immunity to ovarian cancer through antibodies against the cancer-associated antigen MUC1 abnormally expressed in the inflamed parotid gland.
Wild Measles: Adults are significantly protected against non-breast cancers — genital, prostate, gastrointestinal, skin, lung, ear-nose-throat, and others — if they contracted measles earlier in life. [Med Hypotheses 1998; 51(4): 315-20].
Wild Measles: Montella et al found that contracting measles in childhood reduces the risk of developing lymphatic cancer in adulthood [Leuk Res 2006; 30(8): 917-22].
Wild Measles: Alexander et al found that infection with measles during childhood is significantly protective — it cuts the risk in half — against developing Hodgkin’s disease (OR = 0.53) [Br J Cancer 2000; 82(5): 1117-21].
Measles to the Rescue: A Review of Oncolytic Measles Virus.
MV Clinical trials are producing encouraging preliminary results in ovarian cancer, myeloma and cutaneous non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and the outcome of currently open trials in glioblastoma multiforme, mesothelioma and squamous cell carcinoma are eagerly anticipated.
Aref S, et al. Viruses. 2016.
Wild Measles: Glaser et al also found that lymph cancer is significantly more likely in adults who were not NATURALLY infected with measles, mumps or rubella in childhood [In J Cancer 2005; 115(4): 599-605].
Common Infections: Gilham et al found that infants with the LEAST EXPOSURE TO COMMON INFECTIONS have the GREATEST risk of developing childhood leukemia [BMJ 2005; 330: 1294].
6. What are the implications of adding another human’s DNA to our body? or that of an animal? Yes, those things are in vaccines. I’d like to think with the study of epigenetics being so big, that someone has done some research on this, but I’m still searching.
Ingredients for the MMR Vaccine from https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf
MMR (MMR-II): chick embryo cell culture, WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts, vitamins, amino acids, fetal bovine serum, sucrose, glutamate, recombinant human albumin, neomycin, sorbitol, hydrolyzed gelatin, sodium phosphate, sodium chloride
MMRV (ProQuad): chick embryo cell culture, WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts, MRC-5 cells, sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, sodium chloride, sorbitol, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, human albumin, sodium bicarbonate, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride; potassium phosphate dibasic, neomycin, bovine calf serum
MRC-5 is lung tissue of a 14 week old aborted caucasian male
WI-38 is fibroblasts derived from lung tissue of an aborted 12 week old female
7. Many aborted babies were used and are currently being used to develop vaccines. #ProLife
It wasn’t just one or two abortions long ago. They continue to use and study many aborted babies in the process of vaccine research and manufacturing.
They must do this, because the longer they use one fetal cell line, the more tumorigenic it becomes.
Tumorigenic = capable of forming or tending to form tumors
“However, continuous and primary cell lines used for vaccine production suffer from the limitation of being potentially strongly tumorigenic.”
Stopping for today….that’s all I can handle
