Wake up world – not only the #vaccinated infecting the rest of use – they are the ones who are also chronically ill. Ronan Farrow, @RonanFarrow and Whoopi Goldberg @WhoopiGoldberg it is time to get real. Stand with the mothers. Stand with science.
Measles – Disease or Natural Immunity?
Holy Hormones Honey!
Measles outbreak – fact, fiction, fear-mongering and distraction from the real issue at hand and that is the clear and present danger of the MMR vaccine. The media has blasted what they call the ‘anti-vaxxers’ for creating the epidemic at Disneyland – yet other articles have shown that the outbreak at the most revered family-vacation destination in the U.S. can be tied to people who had been vaccinated.
Marcella-Piper Terry of Vaxtruth.org fame, a passionate advocate for protecting the health of our children will join me to discuss the latest media craze (other than Deflategate – right?) to point fingers at parents who choice not to vaccinate their children.
Marcella Piper-Terry is the founder of VaxTruth.org, which began in 2011 as an attempt to inform parents of their legal right to exemptions from vaccination. Since then, the website has published nearly 200 original articles on many aspects of vaccination and vaccine-injuries.
Marcella received a Master of Science degree in psychology in 1997 from the University of South Alabama, where she completed a dual track, completing the required coursework for both clinical and experimental concentrations. Marcella graduated at the top of her class and received the honor of “Outstanding Graduate Student in Psychology.” She was recognized by the American Psychological Foundation in 1996 as recipient of the APF’s Graduate Research Scholarship Award for Excellence in Academic Research. Following receipt of her M.S. degree, Marcella was accepted as a Ph.D. candidate at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where she received full funding and a teaching assistantship. It was at this time that Marcella’s daughter suffered a serious vaccine-reaction after her “kindergarten shots” and Marcella made the decision to leave the Ph.D. program to devote more time to caring for her daughter.
Since 1999, Marcella has worked as a neuropsychological evaluator, educational advocate, psychotherapist, and biomedical consultant. She attended the Defeat Autism Now! Clinical Training in 2007 and worked as a DAN provider, assisting families of vaccine-injured children in assessing and addressing the underlying medical conditions contributing to their children’s “autism” diagnosis. Marcella continues to advocate for vaccine rights, and currently works as a biomedical consultant at The Cady Wellness Institute in Newburgh, Indiana.
#Measlesgate in the Media
NBC News came out with a story on January 22 – warning parents with unvaccinated children to stay away from Disneyland.
On January 23 ABC nightly News broadcast a segment stating the CDC is ‘urging’ parents to get their children vaccinated. Their post goes on to say that “Medical professionals said recent outbreaks of measles are the result of people not getting vaccinated.”
Yet in April 2014, “Science Magazine” posted an article with the headline: Measles Outbreak Traced to Fully Vaccinated Patient for First Time
Get the measles vaccine, and you won’t get the measles—or give it to anyone else. Right? Well, not always. A person fully vaccinated against measles has contracted the disease and passed it on to others. The startling case study contradicts received wisdom about the vaccine and suggests that a recent swell of measles outbreaks in developed nations could mean more illnesses even among the vaccinated.
When it comes to the measles vaccine, two shots are better than one. Most people in the United States are initially vaccinated against the virus shortly after their first birthday and return for a booster shot as a toddler. Less than 1% of people who get both shots will contract the potentially lethal skin and respiratory infection. And even if a fully vaccinated person does become infected—a rare situation known as “vaccine failure”—they weren’t thought to be contagious.
That’s why a fully vaccinated 22-year-old theater employee in New York City who developed the measles in 2011 was released without hospitalization or quarantine. But like Typhoid Mary, this patient turned out to be unwittingly contagious. Ultimately, she transmitted the measles to four other people, according to a recent report in Clinical Infectious Diseases that tracked symptoms in the 88 people with whom “Measles Mary” interacted while she was sick. Surprisingly, two of the secondary patients had been fully vaccinated. And although the other two had no record of receiving the vaccine, they both showed signs of previous measles exposure that should have conferred immunity.
Who is a parent to believe?
In August 2014, Hooker published his findings in a paper entitled: Measles-mumps-rubella vaccination timing and autism among young African American boys: a reanalysis of CDC data in the Translational Neurodegeneration journal. The paper re-examined the study criteria and data used by the CDC in 2002. Hooker’s analysis confirmed what the CDC already knew: that giving the MMR vaccine to African-American infants at 36 months or earlier significantly increased their susceptibility to neurological damage.
The paper was retracted by the journal. This only caused more furor amongst parents who finally had a scientific study that backed up their claims that vaccines damaged their babies neuro-developmental health.
Hooker was able to have his analysis verified by Senior vaccine safety research scientist Dr. William Thompson with the CDC when he confessed his participation in the coverup of the data. Thompson’s comments were recorded and shared with the media concerned with vaccine safety awareness issues. Dr. Andrew Wakefield, and Polley Tommey with the Autism Media Channel played integral roles in initiating the campaign by releasing the recorded conversations between Hooker and Thompson.
Measles Epidemic – Blaming the Unvaccinated or a Failing Vaccine?
Oasis Wellness poses the question that has been on my mind all week in an article entitled: Why I’m not afraid of measles
Unfortunately, the well-meaning but oh-so-biased Department of Health and CDC are using the outbreak as an excuse to scare people into getting vaccinated, as well as to criticize those free-thinking and highly educated parents (like me) who have chosen not to vaccinate their children against measles.
Meanwhile Sayer Ji, of Green Med Info, in his infinite wisdom posted an article on Jan 20, 2015 about the #Disney measles outbreak asking if Measles epidemic is really the fault of the unvaccinated – or is it because the vaccine is failing?
While the Disney measles outbreak is being blamed on the non-vaccinated, the evidence reveals a failing measles vaccine is behind the outbreak.
Looking at the rising tide of vaccine resistant infectious outbreaks in the U.S. and abroad — chickenpox, shingles, mumps, whooping cough (pertussis), influenza, HPV (Gardasil), hepatitis B, to name but a few — through the lens of the peer-reviewed and published literature on the topic, it is clear that the vaccines and not those who refuse to subject themselves to them are at the root of the problem. And nowhere is this more clearly evident than in the measles vaccine.
On January 24, 2015, The Liberty Beacon, the sponsor of my radio show posted this article: Contagion: The MMR Vaccine Will Not Stop the Measles Outbreak From Spreading
The question begs to be asked if there is a perfect storm brewing. If hospitals are already at a disadvantage in dealing with contagious outbreaks and the susceptibility of catching measles is still present even in a vaccinated population, what will happen if cases still increase?
On Sunday, January 25, MSNBC – actually re-posted from “The Guardian” what I consider to be a very balanced article on the measles epidemic entitled: Disneyland measles outbreak leaves many anti-vaccination parents unmoved
Parents in affluent communities all over California have been going through similar agonies since the news broke about the Disneyland outbreak. While the spread of the disease has been relatively modest – fewer than 100 cases in five US states, plus one case in Mexico – media coverage has been intense, almost all of it shining a spotlight on the anti-vaccination movement and the threat it has posed to “herd immunity”, a level of inoculation high enough to protect even the most vulnerable, including newborns, the elderly and those with auto-immune conditions.
Which makes one wonder – if the latest #Disneygate #Measlesgate was indeed intended to target these ‘affluent, highly-educated parents’ in California who have been in the new lately because of their decisions not to vaccinate.
Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, before his untimely death at the end of last year – posted this video in July of 2014 – Measles Virus Helps Immune System, CDC Says Outbreaks Start in Vaccinated Groups, Zero Deaths in 2013
Measles Virus Helps Immunity, Outbreaks Start in Vaccinated Groups, Adults More at Risk, 0 Dead 2013: Supposedly measles was eradicated in the United States around 2003, but the question is did it really need to be eradicated and now the vaccine for is combined with two others to form the MMR vaccines (measles, mumps, rubella). Doctors have long viewed measles as a childhood ailment as a benign disease that served to strengthen the immune system, while the real risk is for adults who contract the ailment. On the Know Your Rights Radio Show with Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, practicing physician and longtime opponent of vaccines, and Vaccine Rights Attorney Alan Phillips, the topic of measles serves to reiterate the points just made and more.
For example, the U.S. Center for Disease Control admits that most measles outbreaks start with the vaccinated elements of the population. Even there are no side effects or risks form the vaccine and it is effective, one still loses about 10 percent of the immunity every year and now with measles carriers coming into the United States the disease had made resurface.
So many vaccines piled into the growing body of young serve to overstimulate the immune system and actually cause a number of other maladies such as asthma, diabetes, obesity, and autoimmune diseases. Eisenstein and Phillips agree this is an unnecessary vaccine.
Marcella, is going to share her wisdom, knowledge and insight to set the record straight on the issue. In fact, Marcella will also discuss how measles actually builds childhood immunity. The presence of the measles virus has been linked to the prevention of breast cancer – just like the presence of the mumps virus has been linked to the prevention of ovarian cancer.
But before you leave this page, gentle reader – let’s take a trip down memory lane – when measles was considered a natural childhood disease –
