June 16, 2014, CNN: Have an Infant? Here's What you Need to Know About Whooping Cough
June 16, 2014, Belfast Telegraph (UK): Abuse scale in autism 'devastating'
June 14, 2014, The UK Guardian: Half of autistic adults 'abused by someone they trusted as a friend'
June 14,2014, Christianity Today: Thank God for Vaccines
June 14, 2014, TIME Magazine: California Warns of Whooping Cough Epidemic
June 8, 2014 LivingWhole.org: This Mama Isn't Scared of the Shmeasle Measles
Dr. Alexander van Tulleken: "[Vaccines] are not side effect free, but they don't cause these side effects that people are worried about, autism being the headline one. It's been incredibly well-researched. The original paper that was published by Andrew Wakefield that suggested that link"--ANCHOR INTERRUPTS--"Completely debunked."
Tulleken: "Completely debunked. Absolutely."
Anchor: "But the passion and the fear there is so enormous. You barely whisper the word autism. It's almost as if you're afraid to say it out loud. That's what is driving this for so many parents."
Tulleken: "I'm an MD, I have a degree in public health, I have a five year old son, and I worry about all these things. [My son] is absolutely vaccinated and I urge everybody to do the same."
The gang of vaccine defenders on CNN couldn't have clearer. Wakefield was wrong, wrong, wrong. They're mystified about all the "passion and the fear." I tried posting a comment--nothing shows up.
Belfast Telegraph (UK) and UK Guardian
This is news from the UK: THERE ARE AUTISTIC ADULTS---and half of them are being abused and we should all be ashamed
This is a pathetic attempt to show that there are autistic adults---and to feign concern for them. This is more from the world of pretend science.
In The Guardian story we learn about a young man in his twenties who was raped and murdered and a woman who was diagnosed with autism in her 50s, after her husband left her .
SOMETHING IS REALLY WRONG HERE. First of all, these are people WHO COULD ANSWER SURVEY QUESTIONS. (Where have we heard about a British survey on adults before?) I want to know how many hundreds of adults in their 40s, 50s, and 60s they looked at who had SEVERE AUTISM--PEOPLE WHO WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO GET MARRIED. How are the ones who are non-verbal doing? Twenty-five percent of autistic children are NONVERBAL. WHERE ARE THE NONVERBAL ADULTS--the ones who couldn't possibly report on abuse?
NAS people are shocked at this news. So the human race in the 21st century ...with an autism rate of one in 68....is guilty of ABUSING HALF OF THE PEOPLE WITH AUTISM!
WE SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED FOR ALLOWING THIS TO GO ON!
The diseases they fight are worse than you remember. The people who oppose them are a bigger risk than you realize.
Dr. Emily Gibson, guest writer
Concerned, caring parents make the decision every day to forego life-saving immunity by refusing to vaccinate their children, truly believing they are doing the right thing. They do not perceive an imminent risk to their child from the older contagious diseases, focusing instead on the low-or often non-existent but ballyhooed-risks of vaccinations.
"Thank God for vaccines"? So who do we thank for all the chronically ill and disabled children everywhere?
This doctor says she's in her 60s. Really? Has she noticed all the sick kids who weren't here 25 years ago? Does she care?
The message links vaccines to God. I hardly think God would have any relationship with the out-of-control, dangerous, corrupt vaccination policies that we have in this country, except to condemn them.
I posted comments.
Research published last year shows that the last epidemic of whooping cough in California in 2010 was due partially to parents who intentionally did not vaccinate their children.
A small but vocal group of parents have raised concerns that vaccines cause autism or other health problems, a belief that is scientifically unfounded and has worsened the spread of disease in the United States.
This is TIME Magazine using the media to scare parents into vaccinating their children. Bad, non-vaccinating parents spread diseases.
It's a lie. Officials know it. It's been reported. The CDC admits it ON THEIR WEBSITE. There's no excuse for TIME Magazine to be saying this. There isn't one word about immunity wearing off in vaccinated individuals. This is being used as an excuse to slam non-vaccinating parents (who link vaccines to autism). AND TIME IS LYING. That's the truth.
Last year Scientific American reported that the pertussis vaccine WEARS OFF. We're all vectors!
Sep 17, 2013, Scientific American: Why Whooping Cough Vaccines Are Wearing Off
By late summer 2010 an alarming number of children in California had developed pertussis, or whooping cough-five times as many as in the first half of 2009. David Witt, a physician and infectious disease specialist who works at Kaiser Permanente San Rafael Medical Center, cared for some of those sick children. His practice lies in the heart of Marin County, the famously counterculture spit of land north of San Francisco. At first, he assumed that the outbreak was a consequence of parents refusing vaccinations for their children. As the incidence continued to climb month after month, however-not just in northern California but all across the state-Witt began to wonder whether something else was going on. . . .
On the CDC website, they say immunity wears off after 2 years.
Am I scared of my child getting measles? Absolutely not. Am I scared of the MMR vaccine.you better believe I am. You would be too if you were getting the facts.the real facts.. . .
The Schmeasle Facts
So far, in 2014 there have been 288 cases of measles, no cases of encephalitis, and no death. In 2013 there were 189 cases of measles, no encephalitis and no death. In 2012 there were 54 cases of measles, no encephalitis, and no death. In 2011, there were 22 cases of measles, and you guessed it.no encephalitis, and no death. I could go on, but you get the point. By and large, measles is unpleasant, not deadly.
This is by a well-educated mom with a background in medicine/science. Her husband is an MD. THEY DON'T VACCINATE. Megan explains why they don't. It makes sense.
I have a degree in Political Science, a law degree, and am a Naturopath, Certified Natural Health Educator, Registered Power Yoga Instructor, writer, and stay-at-home mama. My better-half holds a biology degree, chemistry minor, is a Family Practice Physician, and is a Captain in the United States Air Force. Together we have four kids under three; and yes, we plan to have more.
This is about a dangerous mom--the kind that Paul Offit says rejects vaccination. She's very well-informed. Knowledge is empowering.

I agree with the non-vaccinating mom. I wish I had not given my daughter the MMR and instead she had gotten the measles... As a result of the MMR she developed ataxia, couldn't hold a pencil, ended up with an autoimmune disease, and was sick for 20 years with immune failure. I had the measles and it lasted two weeks. It was the kind of sick that is fun and special. Now cancer researchers give people the measles to cure them of tumors. What is going on here? On one hand it seems like measles is the latest cure for cancer and a good case of the measles might prevent cancer; and on the other hand parents who don't vaccinate their children (which is their legal right) are demonized. And in the future when those who vaccinated lose their children to cancer they will be hating those vaccine free/cancer free because no one told them. Soooo many people are losing their adult children to cancers it is scary.

I'm spinning over this..not sure if the "non human primate" link had been given..click under authors for the editors..
The observation that aP, which induces an immune response mismatched to that induced by natural infection, fails to prevent colonization or transmission provides a plausible explanation for the resurgence of pertussis and suggests that optimal control of pertussis will require the development of improved vaccines.

Even the soft message from the CDC concerning the pertussis wearing off is a lie. It's a mismatch and has been since the inception of dtap. Saying it will cause a lesser case, is crap , as well, a lesser case of what? laughed out loud while reading the abstract, edited by Novaritis..I can only guess their part was "NON HUMAN" as the adjective before primates. It's ridiculous ,and is now a criminal act of assault that needs to be halted. NO ONE should subject their child to a vaccine that is known by the manufacturer to have no efficacy and is unavoidably unsafe.

"This is being used as an excuse to slam non-vaccinating parents (who link vaccines to autism). AND TIME IS LYING. That's the truth."
Does anyone need further proof that it was never about protecting the public from IDs, but protecting the sacred vaccination cash cow? If public health figures and their media goons really care about protecting the public from whooping cough, they would strongly message individuals --especially adults-- of the waning immunity of the DTaP vaccine, and to do their utmost to keep up with their boosters. Yet, to do so would likely further fan the anti-vaxx flame, with greater scrutiny falling on vaccines and their ineffectiveness. Better then to use the occasion, and in the most underhanded manner, to demonize parents who refuse vaccines for their kids, and deflect their autism/vaccines criticisms. Heck -- why should protecting the public get in the way of protecting vaccines and their backers?

I started to post on CNN but I remember the last time I did it had been removed. Probably hit by a troll attack of flags which is what they do when someone post verifiable data to one of CNN pro pharma articles. There is another article on Daily Beast that came up last week by that Russell Saunders which is a fake name for supposeably some Dr who wants to remain anonymous. I did post there and got hit with the troll clown care on name calling and replying with information with no supportive data. There's another site calling into question the effectiveness of the pertussis vaccine:
Whooping cough vaccine efficacy called into question http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2014/06/15/Whooping-cough-vaccine-efficacy-called-into-question/9351402838707/#comment-1437957588.
I'm getting the usual troll attacks but hey, they gotta make a living somehow. Anyway, I believe in karma. One of my sons says you never know when the bitch is back. (no offense)
