Ah the usual quacks at Natural News are upto their old denials again.
See the problem is Natural News is a relatively large site so it gets hits quite easily from scared parents who want to find out more about this whole "vaccine bruhaha" so they find the site and quickly are scared into not vaccinating their child.
People assume that their child is ill because of the vaccine assuming that children before vaccination were healthy and hale, not prone to dying from disease. They think Tom Sayer was the norm, not Tiny Tim.
Big Pharma, the CDC and other public health organizations tell the mainstream media (MSM) what to report about outbreaks and epidemics. So you may have the impression that recent measles outbreaks are occurring because of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccination refusals.Really? Where does it say that? I seem to have missed out on the whole MMR vaccination doesn't work. Apparently our immune systems don't function when it comes down to Measles, Mumps and Rubella antigens unless we actually contract the disease. Apparently it will work with polio, smallpox and other diseases but not these three. And naturally P. F Louis here has proof?
According to official public health documents kept from public attention, the opposite is true. Many stricken with measles have had the full array of three MMR vaccinations.
Wrong! Unfortunately he doesn't once give any actual proof. In his information the one sole piece of actual scientific stats is regarding the single Measles killed vaccine, not the MMR vaccine. The entire source material list reads like a who's who of quackery including a link back to themselves. Their actual statement includes the "because I say it's so!" argument.
If you're old enough, you may remember that measles and mumps were common childhood diseases that came and went. The incidence of death or permanent damage was very small. Once you recovered from measles, you were immunized for life.Prior to the invention of the measles vaccine the USA had roughly an average of 500,000 cases of measles a year. In that a small handful of cases ended up dying. It wasn't that bad a disease mainly because the USA had good healthcare available to ensure your child didn't die.
But that's the thing, the disease is dire enough to require special medical attention and medical attention costs money.
Not to mention it doesn't mention the permanent side effects of measles. Mental Retardation and Death. You see a small proportion of measles cases end up in something called Measles Encephalitis which results in you having a good chance becoming mentally retarded or dying as the disease infects your brain. There are no drugs that can reach it and we cannot give the anti-fever medication to children as that is toxic too (Asprin is poisonous to children).
In the USA the mortality rate for measles is 0.3% (remember you are paying for people to treat your child). Out of a 1000 measles cases 3 will die. In a poorer nation the mortality rate is often as high as 28%. AKA out of a 1000 cases 280 will die.
Not so mild now is it?
The rate of measles outbreaks began declining during the 1970s. This may be attributed to increased immunity by those who had measles and recovered, or a decline in the virulence of measles.
But of course, the medical establishment wants you to believe all infectious disease declines are from vaccines. The opposite is usually factual. It has been documented and graphed that measles had diminished greatly before vaccinations were administered.
|1.2 million people is the population of Dallas|
In 1999 this was applied to the world stage, and between 1999 to 2004 aggressive vaccination has lead to a worldwide drop in mortality to the estimated tune of 1.2 MILLION people.
Apparently we simply keep getting lucky with all those vaccines releasing them just as diseases get incredibly polite and stop killing us. To the anti-vaccine crowd the drop in mortality isn't due to improvements in healthcare but the loss of virulence. To them the drop in incidence post vaccination is merely coincidental.
A simple test is this, I have taken the MMR vaccine. I have worked in an infectious disease ward with measles sufferers before. Measles has a 90% transmission rate and I didn't catch it. Neither did any other student in there with me. IF the MMR vaccine was not taken then 9/10 of us would be ill.
The three in one MMR shot was developed during that decade for convenience. Prior to that, there was one vaccination for every disease. But the three in one MMR is inoculated on three separate occasions within a few months, usually before 15 months of age. Preteens and teenagers are often subjected to this risky business as well if they missed the early schedule.
