Nov 17, 2014, WWL Radio New Orleans: Rates of Autism Soaring

Nov 14, 2014, CBS Boston: 15 Falmouth High Students Diagnosed With Whooping Cough


ABC News 

A system Congress established to speed help to Americans harmed by vaccines has instead heaped additional suffering on thousands of families, The Associated Press has found.

The premise was simple: quickly and generously pay for medical care in the rare cases when a shot to prevent a sickness such as flu or measles instead is the likely cause of serious health complications. But the system is not working as intended.

ABC News has me blocked from posting on their site so I couldn't add the comment below.

Regardless, it's amazing to see the media concerned   The government has refused to release the latest data?   "The government fights legitimate claims and fails its obligation to publicize the court"?  Sounds like a program both corrupt and slightly illegal. 

WWL Radio New Orleans

The rates of autism in children has soared according to a new study. What could be causing the increase?   

The study from Denmark found that rising rates are due primarily to the change in how autism is defined, which means autism is easier to be diagnosed as the definition of autism was made broader.  

The study has been out for a while--but no matter, let's reassure everyone that there's nothing to worry about having one in every 68 kids diagnosed with autism--in fact this story DOESN'T EVEN MENTION WHAT THE RATE IS.

Of course there are stories out there about thousands of kids with autism on a waiting list for services in South Carolina --

 but that's to be expected.  No one would have even noticed all these children 20 years ago....when the definition was broadened.   


And of course you have to read to the end of the end of the article to learn 40 percent of the increase is due to SOMETHING ELSE--unknown reasons.  (But who really cares?)


 CBS Boston

Massachusetts is one of just 18 states that allow a parent to exempt their children from vaccines on philosophical grounds.

Data examined by the I-Team showed the number of exemptions has quadrupled over the past 25 years. Public health officials tell WBZ that once those exemption rates start to climb, so does the risk of an outbreak.

All of the whooping cough patients in this outbreak, 15 in total, go to Falmouth High School. . . .

No one knows for sure why exemption rates are so high on the Cape. But in this case, a school official tells WBZ that all the students had been immunized. . . .

"None of these vaccines are 100 percent effective and there is some waning of effectiveness over time," said Dr. Daley.

Notice how this story reads.  We're told that 15 students at one high school have whooping cough.  Then we're told about the frightening increase in exemptions and the dangers of whooping cough.  AND NINE PARAGRAPHS DOWN IN THE STORY...we're told that "ALL THE STUDENTS HAD BEEN IMMUNIZED."  In the 10th paragraph we're told that "there is some waning of effectiveness over time," which refers to the known fact that immunity from the vaccine starts to wear off in three years.

This is a setup.  This should be a story about a vaccine THAT DOESN'T WORK.  Instead it's been turned into an attack on non-vaccinating parents.  (And there's also a reminder that vaccines don't cause autism.)

"Another incidence of vaccine failure."

Or vaccine induced carrier transmission:

"Pertussis Vaccines Protect Baboons against Disease but Not Infection and Transmission

Baboons were placed in four groups to study their immune response to Bordetella pertussis (BP) and pertussis vaccines:

1. Unvaccinated and uninfected;
2. BP infected and recovered;
3. Immunized at 2, 4 and 6 months of age with whole cell pertussis vaccine (DTwP),
4. Immunized at 2, 4, and 6 months of age with acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP).

At 7 months, all four groups had BP inoculated into their noses.

1. The unvaccinated baboons became sick and had nasal shedding of BP for 30 days.
2. The previously BP-infected baboons did not become ill and did not shed BP.
3. The DTwP-vaccinated baboons did not get sick, but shed BP for 18 days.
4. The DTaP-vaccinated baboons did not get sick, but shed BP for 35 days, and readily transmitted BP to unvaccinated baboons.

Pertussis vaccination prevented symptoms of BP infection, but did not stop colonization and transmission. It is possible that the switch from DTwP to DTaP in the U.S. may be contributing to the current increase of BP infections.

States, January 14, 2014.

We live in a suburb north of Pittsburgh, Pa. We received automated phone calls from the school district at the end of last school year that several students had been diagnosed with pertussis. Then my son fell ill shortly after a baseball tournament where all players stayed in a dorm at the beginning of July, which resulted in a persistent cough for a couple months. Never thought a thing of it. Apparently so did a number of other players, and it is believed they all contracted whooping cough. This is a highly vaccinated area of the country. It would be hard to blame that outbreak on "anti-vaccine" parents. Another incidence of vaccine failure.

How do these people sleep at night?

The "reporters" comprising the CBS "I-Team" ought to be ashamed of themselves .. and .. CBS even more so .. for presenting this "report" .. wherein "unvaccinated children" were held responsible for "fully vaccinated" teenagers contracting whooping cough.

As Anne rightly notes .. this outbreak of whooping cough should have been a report on a vaccine THAT DOES NOT WORK.

Which means .. in my humble opinion .. I wouldn't want this sham "I-Team" to investigate anything ..let alone a subject so serious it demands TRUTH .. however inconvenient that TRUTH proves to be. After all .. if the vaccine DOES NOT WORK .. SAY IT!

And so .. this "report" did not warrant broadcast as "news" .. it would have been better appreciated had it appeared where it belonged .. as a skit on Saturday Night Live.

As I said .. how do these people sleep at night?

Whooping but still have my brain

I recently got whooping cough. It is no fun but far better than brain damage. Still i knew i had it due to the horrible whoop. This warned me to stay far fr
others. I felt compelled to get tested was happy to stay home and wanted the drs to confirm it and follow the contract transmission procedure--had someone told me they were exposing me I could have gotten antibiotics before the whoop started. Then I saw this article which truly turns herd immunity on its head. Turns out that getting the vaccine means you can be a silent carrier! Far far worse to infect a baby because you got a vaccine to save yourself and no one knew you were carrying it. Or grandma got one because the dr guilted in to it and she inadvertently infected the baby. The true hero is the adult who does not get vaccinated so that we know we are sick. Whooping cough is painful and awful for adults. But THAT is worth the sacrifice. Injecting my whole family with neurotoxins and a failing vaccine? Just makes the companies richer and all of us sicker and does not help the vulnerable after all.

Oh --by the way my dr and solano county ca where I love? No interest in testing me to make sure I had it or not. We are NOT ready for an epidemic. All the health care money has shifted to pharma and away from community. And no money for labs or tests apparently. Vaccines are far more profitable.

This is just one story .
