Measles: Exploring The Past Before The Marketing Of Vaccines

Published

on

Did you grow up watching The Flintstones or The Brady Bunch? I know I did. These television programs were pretty popular in their day.

You might want to take a step back in time and reminisce by watching these hilarious measles episodes joking about how trivial getting the measles was, way back before the vaccine was invented. And maybe it will get you thinking, ”why all the fuss today?” Is measles something to be terrified of?

I’m sure we all can agree, most grandparents would say that they caught measles and that they “got through it just fine.” And our mothers can probably also remember measles and chicken pox parties, where people would invite their kids to be around other children who had either of these two viruses. It was nothing to be scared of. Sure, if you didn’t treat it correctly, it could make some children’s symptoms worsen, and it’s definitely not good for adults to get measles (hence the parties!) but all in all, measles was seen as something that was very common and nothing to be frightened of. Please try and view the video first, then read on.

Why are things are so different now?  We’ve all become very scared of contracting any illness. Even the flu makes people rush out and get vaccines that have actually been proven to harm (and can even kill). What’s worse, not only are they harmful, they really do not work very well.

Where Does The Fear Come From?

What has caused such a huge change in our attitudes towards the measles?

Cathy Jameson from Age Of Autism wrote the following in her article A Very Brady Measles:

Things are so different today. Illness is a bad word. What used to be called a common childhood disease is now viewed as impending doom. Fevers, rashes and sicknesses that last longer than a few hours are treated like the plague. Anything that can be passed from one person to another is a death sentence. These types of exaggerations fill many news stories.  With those exaggerations, as well as how other fear tactics are used, including the mantra that the almighty vaccine is the answer no matter the question, no wonder people feel anxious about disease today!

Cathy also wrote about the Disney ‘outbreak’ that has many people up in arms:

I don’t know why a growing number of news sources that are reporting on diseases are resorting to such exaggeration. Take the latest disease story in the news, the Disney measles story. Pre-vaccine hysteria, we recognized that after a childhood illness ran its course that natural immunity would be gained.  Nowadays, rather than promote natural immunity, we’re being ushered and demanded to get vaccines. I have to ask why, especially why the measles vaccine (MMR), when this particular vaccine clearly isn’t working.

We know that it isn’t working because several of the people who came down with the measles in the recent Disney outbreak were vaccinated. That fact – that vaccinated individuals got the disease that their vaccine was supposed to prevent – negates the current media feeding frenzy. You’d think focusing on those vaccinated individuals who fell ill is a more of a breaking news story. You’d think that because we’re told so many times that vaccines are always life-saving, safe and effective, effective in preventing disease. Evidently, they are not.

The Chart Used in Brady Bunch TV program to highlight what the Brady kids had caught.

“Over $3 billion has been paid out to victims of vaccine reactions. Not $3 million. Not $30 million. Not even $300 million, but $3 billion. Are we paying that much money to victims of pretend reactions? I think not.”  – Dr Bob Sears

Worried About Measles & Other Viruses?

It personally boggles my mind that most people today are so frightened of common viruses that “everyone got” years ago, yet many don’t know that real health comes from what we eat, how much exercise we get, how we control our stress and how much Vitamin D we get.

But what can we expect when we have a medical system with doctors who don’t tend to learn more than about 12 hours (maybe I’m even stretching this amount!) of training to do with nutrition. And whilst they do mention the other things in their advice to patients, it’s not really emphasised in detail – eg. they will still prescribe a drug that might not be necessary when a lifestyle change may actually fix that concern.

Because doctors don’t receive much nutrition training, this of course, then effects what the media writes about nutrition and allows them to advertise these awful foods to begin with.

So because of this lack of education – generally speaking – many people often regularly eat junk food, always resort to medications (that can harm  the body with regular use), and don’t breastfeed their children for too long – or at all.  They also aren’t concerned about or don’t understand that chemicals are harming society, and just generally lead a very unhealthy lifestyle.

Yet they perhaps want to believe that a vaccine will take care of everything, instantly making them healthier individuals and immune to disease.

Ensure Adequate Levels of Vitamin A

There’s a lot we can do for ourselves and our children in relation to the measles. One is very simple and that is ensuring that we have adequate vitamin a levels.

Leon Chaitow wrote in his book  (published back in 1987 when measles deaths did occur) Vaccination and Immunisation: Dangers, Delusions and Alternatives about the evidence supporting vitamin a deficiences showing that:

  • those children that have the worst symptoms during and following measles have lowest levels of vitamin a
  • such children are the most likely develop eye symptoms during measles
  • they are also likely to have a fever above 40 degrees (104 F) and require hospitalisation
  • they are the children most likely to die from measles
  • supplementing with vitamin a dramatically reduces the risks of severe illness or death associated with measles
  • this has been demonstrated in Africa where a 700% reduction in children dying from measles followed with vitamin a supplementation

Therefore, it must be considered, we may be seeing these outbreaks happen today, partly due to simple vitamin a deficiencies. We know that many children aren’t eating good diets. That’s a fact. You only have to take a walk outside most cities and you will see overweight children who are clearly not having a good wholesome diet.  I often see children with dark circles under their eyes, sallow skin and just lack of ‘spark’ behind their eyes. If they don’t look healthy, chances are they are missing some pretty important nutrients.

Where Do You Get Vitamin A From In Diet?

As parents or as an individual, we can try and ensure we have good levels of vitamin a in our diets. High levels of  vitamin a – in the form of retinol (the most important source) –  is found in many animal products such as:

  • grass fed organic egg yolks
  • grass fed organic butter
  • grass fed organic liver
  • fermented cod liver oil
  • grass fed organic full fat cream

It is found in plant sources too, but according to research its not the correct source.

Author Lauren, of the Empowered Sustanance wrote:

When you hear think about vitamin A foods, what sources come to mind? Most nutrition books and internet sources list the following as excellent sources of vitamin A:

  1. Carrots
  2. Sweet potatoes
  3. Dark leafy greens
  4. Cantaloupe
  5. Bell peppers

Although taken for granted as ideal vitamin A foods, these plants provide only the precursor to vitamin A, carotenoids. Interestingly, we need to be consuming true vitamin A foods, foods containing retinol, to meet our vitamin A requirements.

The most important fact about vitamin A is the difference between retinoids and cartenoids. The vitamin A from animal sources is retinoids, also called retinol, while plant source vitamin A is carotenoids, such as beta carotene.

Carrot-Nutri-Red-Sugarsnax-Purplesnax

Think Carrots Are A Good Source Of Vitamin A? Not So

Animal sources of retinol is bio-available, which means the body can utilize it. The vitamin A from plant sources, in contrast, must first be converted to retinol to be useful in the body. This poses two big problems.

First, when we are in pristine health, it requires at least six units of carotenes to convert into 1 unit of retinol (source). To put this in perspective, that means one must eat 4 1/2 pounds of carrots to potentially get the amount of useable A as in 3 oz. of beef liver (source). What happens if we have digestive issues, hormone imbalances, or other health problems? It requires even more units of carotene in the ratio.

Second,  the carotene-to-retinol conversion is HIGHLY compromised. As a matter of fact, this conversion is negligible for many individuals. This conversion is virtually insignificant:

  • In infants
  • In those with poor thyroid function (hypothyroidism)
  • In those with diabetes
  • In those who are on a low fat diet or have a history of low fat dieting
  • In those who have compromised bile production (think: gallbladder and digestive issues) (source and source)

This information is most certainly not going to appeal to vegans. However, I would suggest you get tested yourself for vitamin a levels and your children as well if they too are following a vegan diet.

Adequate Vitamin D Is A Must For Healthy Kids And Adults

Vitamin D

We also now know that many people are incredibly deficient in vitamin d, which is vital for good health and a strong immune system. I’d personally go as far as saying that vitamin d is essential for the health of every single part of the body. Concerningly deficiencies are now a huge problem found in children.

Sunlight is the best source, but due to the vilification of the sun years ago, many people always slather themselves with toxic sunscreens before they have any sun exposure at all.  These creams do a fantastic job of blocking out the bad and good rays.

So where are people getting their vitamin d from if they are always covering up? Diet is another area that we can tray and get some more from:

 

Portobello-Mushrooms

mushrooms – a source of vitamin d

Common Foods That Contain Vitamin D

  • eggs
  • mushrooms
  • oily fish
  • cod liver oil
  • orange juice
  • beef liver

another way to get Vitamin D is from:

Supplementing with Vitamin D

In regards to supplementation, I would like to share what Dr. Mercola wrote on his website:

If You Opt for a Vitamin D Supplement…

If your circumstances don’t allow you to access the sun or a high-quality tanning bed, then you really only have one option if you want to raise your vitamin D, and that is to take a vitamin D supplement (make sure it is vitamin D3, not D2). I recommend regularly testing your levels to make sure you’re staying within the therapeutic range of 50-70 ng/ml year-round. The Society Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee recommends the following dosages. Keep in mind that these guidelines are thought to allow most people to reach a vitamin D level of 30 ng/ml, which many still consider suboptimal for disease prevention.

  • Neonates: 400 to 1,000 IUs per day
  • Children one year of age and above: 600 to 1,000 IUs per day
  • Adults: 1,500 to 2,000 IUs per day

GrassrootsHealth offers a helpful chart showing the average adult dose required to reach healthy vitamin D levels based upon your measured starting point. Many experts agree that 35 IUs of vitamin D per pound of body weight could be used as an estimate for your ideal dose, but you’ll need to test your levels to find out the dosage that’s right for you.

Get Your Levels Checked

Another way to know whats going on with your body is to get some testing done in relation to your levels of vitamin d. You can ask your doctor to do a screening for you (you may have to be quite firm about your request) or you could purchase a kit like this one.

When suffering from the measles another great way to treat it is with Vitamin C.  Dr Suzanne Humphries writes:

Vitamin C is one of the safest medical wonders on the planet. The following link will show you Vitamin C’s success as published in medical literature since the 1940′s.  It has been put down by the FDA and much disbelief exists within the medical community.  Link to article HERE.  However, I and many others have first-handedly enjoyed the nontoxic benefits of sodium ascorbate.  It is important to use high enough doses and the right formulation to achieve best results.

AscorbateWeb

The reason conventional medical doctors are not taught about the mechanisms of action and benefits of vitamin C in medical school, is that if they knew about it, then not only would a raft of other drugs have been unnecessary, but there would not be serious whooping cough or even deaths.  Vitamin A and C would render measles really easy to treat. You’d never see meningococcal complications, because all people suspected of having it, would immediately be put on IV vitamin C and there would be no coagulopathy at all.  Vitamin C antidotes DIC, the coagulopathy.  The ACIP and it’s cronies wouldn’t be able to use meningococcal complications and deaths as emotional blackmail to get people to vaccinate, because people wouldn’t be scared of infections any more.

Why The Huge Rise In Autoimmune Disorders?

If vaccines were truly making us ‘healthier’ and have stronger immune systems, why is their such a huge increase in auto-immune disorders that we have?

It is estimated that in the US alone, 50 million citizens have an autoimmune disorder. And guess how many different ones there are these days?

Between 80-100.

This is beyond shocking.

I know, to achieve good health, it can cost more, you do have to spend more money on wholesome food, on supplements and other preventative measures, but the long term goal is to not need to suffer later in life – and cost the health system (which uses our taxes to pay for it) so much money.

There’s so much an individual can do to help their immune system become very efficient, it just takes a little interest and serious effort. It’s actually got to become a way of life.  We just need more education on how to do this.

Measle Vaccines Spreads Measles

Another thing people don’t seem to understand about the measles vaccine is that it can spread the disease to others. Because it contains a “live virus,” most people who are recently vaccinated can be contagious for approximately 2 weeks. This is called “shedding.” This is not hearsay, this is a fact and is often clearly stated on vaccine inserts.

In New York City, a 22 year old fully vaccinated adult developed measles and then unknowingly gave the virus to four other people, two of which had also been vaccinated.

Despite kids today being given up to 3 doses of the MMR vaccine, it’s also not guaranteed that they will still be immune later in life  – which is pretty frightening to know considering catching measles as an adult is certainly a lot riskier.

Vaccines that can shed

 

Measles Vaccine Reactions Not So Rare

If you check out the MMR’s adverse reactions that have been listed after they conducted their study, the list is enormous – too much to list here – but it contains some very frightening noted effects.

However, I also found some concerning information, again, found in Merck’s own product information PDF:

  • As for any vaccine, vaccination with M-M-R II may not result in protection in 100% of vaccines.
  • M-M-R II has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or potential to impair fertility.

So basically they’re saying that they can’t guarantee that the MMR vaccine will provide us with immunity and that it – or any other vaccines on the market – have not been studied to disprove if this vaccine can cause us long term problems such as cancer, or if it could cause other health problems or even effect your ability to conceive a child.

Not So Safe & Not So Effective

Really, they haven’t proven anything in regards to its safety. Sure, some will say, “My kids had it but they are fine, they haven’t had a reaction,” but how do we know that in the long term they might not develop cancer because of this vaccine?

There’s simply no proof from them to say this won’t happen.

Is this a good way to study something that is being commonly dolled out to all of our kids? And yes, the vaccines have been around long enough now for a study to be performed, but pharmaceutical companies simply don’t do these long-term studies.

I don’t know about you, but this is not good enough at all. If something is staunchly recommended for my child to take, I want real proof that it’s safe and that it’s going to work. What I don’t want is a long list of possible adverse reactions that have been recorded during trials and since reported to VAERS.

The possible effects from catching measles naturally (when treated the correct way)  is often so minimal.

The vaccine has far more possible side effects.

What About Deaths From Measles?

In fact, there have been some pretty serious adverse reactions due to the vaccine recorded with VAERS, namely deaths. Yet it’s questionable anyone has died from the measles in the last TEN years.  In the last year, Dr. Anne Schuchat, the director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, made this statement in an Associated Press story published by Fox News on April 25, 2014:

“There have been no measles deaths reported in the U.S. since 2003.

6a00d834515c5469e201bb07ede2bb970d-500wi

Does it really look like the measles vaccine caused measles to decrease?

Just this past week a news story came out of Berlin, that a toddler has recently died from the measles. When you look at the story though, there is actually no proof this is true. There is no interview with the parents, no photo, nothing. Also if it true, they have said in the reports that he is an asylum seeker from Bosnia.  Now, if you have a think about what that could tell about his health – it could mean that he a) hasn’t been eating very well or very much b) has been living in poverty c) suffering a lot of stress.

The reports also say that he was suffering from some other disease as well. With what some of us know about the close ties between the media and pharmaceutical industry – this story could be more of a fear tactic. Regardless even if true, it is one death. Not ten, not twenty, not thirty but one. In ten years.

However, the amount of deaths recorded after receiving measles vaccines is up to approximately 108.  And it’s always best to understand the fact that not all vaccine injuries are ever recorded. If a doctor denies to a patient that the vaccine could have caused their child’s death (and most do), sometimes parents just believe that and don’t press the issue any further. So the real amount of deaths from the measles vaccine, could in fact be much higher.”

The odds are more on the side of receiving an injury from the vaccine, than from dying from measles.

This chart below is from Medalerts.org, a public database anyone can access to see what reactions have been recorded.

There have been 4 different measles vaccines in use over the last 10 years.  Not all were combined vaccines (such as the one used solely today – the MMRII)

VAERS-Measles-Vaccine-Deaths-600

Deaths From Measles Vaccines – MedAlert data base

  “It has killed no one. It can kill about 1 person in every 1000 cases. Will someone die of measles in the United States in the years to come? Maybe. But it hasn’t killed anyone in the past 15 years or more.” – Dr Bob Sears

Merck Lawsuit For Fraud

Oh, and lets not forget that Merck is being sued by two former scientists who filed a law suit back in 2010 claiming that Merck was trying to:

defraud the United States through Merck’s ongoing scheme to sell the government a mumps vaccine that is mislabeled, misbranded, adulterated and falsely certified as having an efficacy rate that is significantly higher than it actually is.

So not only do we have a vaccine whose own manufacturer admits that:

a) they can’t prove its vaccine is efficient for everyone

b) it can spread the disease to other people through ‘shedding’ process

c) they can’t say it won’t give you cancer, cause infertility or other health problems

We can also now say that it’s pretty likely they:

d) have committed medical fraud.

This is all so very comforting to know.

Are YOU Fully Vaccinated?

If you are a staunch believer in vaccines, can I get you to ask yourself this question:

Are you “fully vaccinated” for every disease that you are so worried about?

Have a good think about this, because most adults are not. This is because back in our early years, we didn’t have such a huge jam-packed schedule of vaccines. So chances are, technically you are “at risk” for catching disease.

Have a look at the vaccine comparison chart below and see what you would have received and what you are missing. There are about 25 vaccines I haven’t personally been given, but have I caught any of those things? Nope.

I do hope this gets you thinking though, that no, you are NOT vaccinated for all of these things, but you haven’t caught all of the diseases. You’re here and alive and well.

To continue being so adamant that ”everyone” should be vaccinated (with no personal choice on this matter) is an attitude which may in fact make you quite hypocritical.

Two Doctors Explain Autophagy, How To Induce It (Fasting) & What It Does To The Human Body (Video)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Guido Kroemer and Rhonda Patrick sit down and discuss autophagy, how to induce it and it's health benefits.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we never hear about fasting interventions as an 'official' treatment for certain from our federal health regulatory agencies when there is so much scientific proof?

Fasting and caloric restriction, if done correctly in a healthy and appropriate manner, combined with a healthy diet can have tremendous benefits for the human body. Interventions like fasting are gaining tremendous amounts of popularity, and that is in large part due to the fact that this information is being spread across the world via alternative media outlets and independent websites, youtube channels, etc. It’s not really a health topic that we’re hearing from mainstream media sources or our federal health regulatory agencies. Why? Because you can’t make money off of fasting. Perhaps when drugs are developed that mimic the effects of fasting, that’s when its popularity will skyrocket; but unfortunately, modern day health authorities don’t really seem to be as concerned with our health and wellbeing as they are about profiting and making money, and nobody is going to make any money if people starting eating less. That being said, the information revolution cannot be stopped, and fasting is now on the minds of many, and for good reason.

On October 3rd, 2016, the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Yoshinori Ohsumi for his discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy, a term that translates to “self-eat.” In short, autophagy is the body’s self-cleaning system, a mechanism in which cells get rid of all the broken down, old cell machinery (organelles, proteins and cell membranes). It is a regulated, orderly process to degrade and recycle cellular components.

The process of autophagy is like replacing parts in a car—sometimes we need a new engine or battery for the car to function better. The same thing happens within each of our cells. During autophagy, old cellular debris is sent to specialized compartments within the cell called “lysosomes.” Lysosomes contain enzymes that degrade the old debris, breaking it down into smaller components to be reused again by the cell.

Scientists have found that fasting for 12 to 24+ hours triggers autophagy, which is thought to be one of the reasons that fasting is associated with longevity. There is a large body of research that connects fasting to improved blood sugar control, reduced inflammationweight loss, and improved brain function, and Oshumi’s findings provide greater insight into this research.

“Sporadic short-term fasting, driven by religious and spiritual beliefs, is common to many cultures and has been practiced for millennia, but scientific analyses of the consequences of caloric restriction are more recent… short-term food restriction induces a dramatic upregulation of autophagy in cortical and Purkinje neurons. As noted above, disruption of autophagy can cause neurodegenerative disease, and the converse also may hold true: upregulation of autophagy may have a neuroprotective effect.

Food restriction is a simple, reliable, inexpensive and harmless alternative to drug ingestion and, therefore, we propose that short-term food restriction may represent an attractive alternative to the prophylaxis and treatment of diseases in which candidate drugs are currently being sought.”

If you look at the plethora of studies that’ve been published regarding caloric restriction and fasting, the benefits are overwhelming. These benefits are seen across the board, not just in humans, but in animals as well. Some of these benefits are talked about below in a fascinating interview and discussion between Dr. Rhonda Patrick  and Dr. Guido Kroemer. Dr. Patrick, as her website states, “is dedicated to the pursuit of longevity and optimal health and shares the latest research on nutrition, aging, and disease prevention with her audience. She has a gift for translating scientific topics into understandable takeaways for all levels of education and interest.” She has a lot of great content on her Youtube channel with some very interesting people who are leaders in their respective field.

Dr. Guido Kroemer is currently a Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Paris Descartes, Director of the research team “Apoptosis, Cancer and Immunity” of the French Medical Research Council (INSERM), Director of the Metabolomics and Cell Biology platforms of the Gustave Roussy Comprehensive Cancer Center, Deputy Director of the Cordeliers Research Center, and Hospital Practitioner at the Hôpital Européen George Pompidou, Paris, France. He is also a Foreign Adjunct Professor at the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to recognize the potential of dietary interventions for certain ailments. It’s also to recognize the importance of seeking out knowledge and wisdom, and not just relying on your doctor for advice or prescription medications.

Ladies, Ditch the Bra

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There is evidence of a relationship between bras and breast cancer may rethink the societal convention of wearing bras.

  • Reflect On:

    Have you looked into the research about how bras can be contributing to poor health?

I realize it may feel some combination of uncomfortable, unprofessional, or unnecessarily provocative. Societal convention has most of us trussing up before going out.

If you are reading this at home, do me a favor and unhook. Then keep reading.

There’s Some Evidence of a Relationship Between Bras and Breast Cancer Yes, seriously.

Dressed To Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras

Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer authored a book called Dressed To Kill. They interviewed 4,000+ women in five major U.S. cities over two years. Half the women had been diagnosed with breast cancer. They found:

  • 75% of women who slept in their bras developed breast cancer
  • 1 in 7 who wore their bras 12+ hours per day developed breast cancer
  • 1 in 168 who did not wear a bra developed breast cancer
  • Within one month of ditching their bras, women with cysts, breast pain, or tenderness found their symptoms disappeared.

Breast Size, Handedness, and Breast Cancer Risk

advertisement - learn more

A 1991 article in the European Journal of Cancer found that premenopausal women who do not wear bras had half the risk of breast cancer compared with bra users. The data also suggest that bra cup size (and breast size) may be a risk factor for breast cancer.

Cancer Is Not a Disease

Andreas Moritz revealed that Japanese, Fijians, and women from other cultures were found to have a significantly higher likelihood of developing breast cancer when they began wearing bras. His book explains how cancer is an adaptive healing mechanism, arguing that people would die more quickly if the body did not form cancer cells.

Bras and Girdles Can Reduce Melatonin Levels

Japanese researchers found they can lower melatonin by 60%. Melatonin has anti-cancer properties. And Spanish researchers wrote about the use of melanonin in breast cancer prevention and treatment.

There’s No Downside to Being Cautious.

Am I suggesting this scanty fact base offers definitive proof of a causal relationship? No.

Am I suggesting you should be comforted that the National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, and the New York Times all believe it to be bunk? No.

That’s a longer discussion, but it’s sufficient to say that politics and economics create active bedfellows and the absence of a commercial imperative might have something to do with the dearth of research.

Many of us don’t need to wait in order to do something that intuitively seems to make a lot of sense. Frankly, in view of the alarming rate of breast cancer prevalence in this country (12.3% of women) and the growing trend to remove body parts in an attempt to improve our odds, it seems we might be receptive to a bit of behavior modification.

Things to Consider Doing:

Go braless as much as possible.

It actually gets easier. When these muscles and ligaments are forced to bear the weight of our breasts, muscle tone returns. The more you wear a bra, the more you need to wear a bra. Chest muscles and breast ligaments atrophy, which then makes it feel uncomfortable to go braless.

15 year French study conducted by Besancon CHU professor Jean-Denis Rouillon found that “medically, phyisiologically, and anatomically, breasts gained no benefit from their weight being supported in a bra.” There was some evidence that eliminating bra use helped ease back pain. He described bra wearing as a “false need.”

Remove your bra when you get home. Don’t wear a bra to bed. And if you’re self-conscious when going out, try wearing camisoles, thicker material, or nipple pads. It does make sense to wear a support bra while exercising.

Wear Loose Bras in Softer Materials and Avoid Underwires

Tight bras and underwires restrict lymphatic drainage, promoting congestion and stagnation of toxic waste materials that are supposed to be flowing out for excretion. Further, the closing of lymphatic vessels reduces the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells.

Michael Schachter, MD, FACAM wrote that bras and tight clothing can impede lymph flow and contribute to the development of breast cancer.

John MacDougall, MD wrote in The Lancet that repeated inflammation from constricting bras are implicated in painful breast cysts and lumps, scar tissue develops, and milk ducts become plugged, all of which is associated with a higher risk of breast cancer.

The metal in underwire bras can create an “Antenna Effect” according to the father of Applied Kinesiology, George Goodheart, DC. Repeated pressing of metal over an acupuncture point can cause longer-term stimulation of neuro-lymphatic reflex points corresponding to the liver, gallbladder, and stomach. “It will likely make her sick; slowly and quietly,” said John Andre, ND, DC.

Here’s a list of no-underwire bras recommended by Donna Eden, Vicki Mathews, and Titanya Dahlin. Donna adds that plastic underwires have the same negative impact as metal underwires.

Slide the Wires Out!

There’s no need to toss your expensive underwire bras. If you cut a small opening at one end of the wire, you can manually remove it from each cup. You’ll probably find that your bra supports you nearly as well without them. Oh, and don’t be fooled. They make look like plastic, but they’re actually plastic-coated metal. If you find you still need the support, you can buy and insert plastic wires. Andre explains how.

For additional research on the harms of bras read our article Breast Cancer Cover-Up Continues or get the book “Dressed To Kill: The Link between Breast Cancer and Bras.”

65 Chemical Cross-Contaminants Found In Popular Children’s Vaccine INFANRIX Hexa

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The National Order of Biologists made a €10,000 donation to a group that questions the safety of vaccines. The Infanrix Hexa vaccine was the first one tested, and results showed no trance of antigens and a high level of contamination.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is this not big news? Why does the vaccine not contain any of the antigens it's supposed to guard against? This test shows clear and large causes for concern, so why does it not make mainstream headlines?

Facebook, which seems to have become a government-run agency claiming to help fight the war on ‘fake news,’ has pledged to delete and flag content that spreads misinformation. This is great, and should be done, but the only problem is that content around the internet is being taken down, flagged, and deemed as a ‘conspiracy theory’ when it is well-supported, factual, and backed by peer-reviewed science.

I just wrote an article about the recent measles outbreak in Washington State for example, and how that state is pushing hard for all school-aged children to receive a mandatory MMR vaccination. These outbreaks are constantly being blamed on unvaccinated children, but the mainstream never points people towards the actual statistics showing that Washington State, like many other states, have not experienced a drop in MMR vaccination coverage. Instead, MMR vaccine coverage is very high.

Furthermore, they don’t mention that there’s been a long history of measles outbreaks in highly vaccinated and fully vaccinated populations (see article linked below for examples and sources), and they don’t mention the deaths, disabilities, and adverse reactions that’ve occurred as a result of the MMR vaccine either. Why don’t they mention that the death rate from measles in Washington State was just 1.4/10,000 (source in article below) before the introduction of the vaccine? You can read more about that and access multiple studies and testimonies on this subject in the article linked below:

Biochemical Engineer Drops Bombshell Facts About Measles & The MMR Vaccine In Washington

Information and science are constantly emerging regarding vaccinations, but we never hear about any of it from mainstream media. I also recently published an article of Robert F. Kennedy explaining how big pharmaceutical companies are the biggest lobbyists, even more than big oil, and how they’ve completely compromised both the Democrats and the Republicans.

They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science – Robert F. Kennedy

So, what’s some of the latest information regarding vaccine safety?

An article published in Nature, International Journal of Science titled “Italian scientists protest funding for vaccine-safety investigation” outlines how The National Order of Biologists made a €10,000 donation to a group that questions the safety of vaccines.

The groups name is Corvelva, and they received the donation on the 26th of October of 2018. The group believes that the research it conducts is necessary because “previous studies it has funded, which have not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal, indicate that some vaccines contain impurities, or lack the active ingredients they claim to contain.”

Nature points out that “Some scientists in Italy are up in arms over a donation from the organization that oversees the nation’s professional biology qualification to  an advocacy group that opposes the country’s policy of mandatory childhood vaccination.”

This part is confusing: Why would any group or any scientist oppose more safety studies regarding vaccinations? Wouldn’t professionals on both sides of the coin be in support of as much vaccine safety testing as possible?

ONB president Vincenzo D’Anna told Nature in an e-mail interview that there is a need for truly independent vaccine research because, in his opinion, work conducted in public laboratories and at universities is usually influenced or funded by companies that produce vaccines.

“The goal is to contribute to complete the biological and chemical analyses on vaccines,” he said in the interview, part of which the ONB has published in its Bulletin.

Again, Nature points out that many scientists dismiss the need for more vaccine safety testing and that they are upset. That being said, it’s a comforting thought that ONB disagrees and that they are supporting this type of thing. Clearly, many professionals within that organization don’t believe that vaccines go through rigorous safety testing, as is claimed by many. Again, what harm could be done by further testing?

What Did They Find?

The first vaccine that was tested was the Infanrix Hexa vaccine. It’s a six-in-one vaccine that’s manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) that’s supposed to contain the following antigens: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis toxoids; inactivated poliomyelitis viral strains 1-2-3; and hepatitis B surface antigen.

Corvelva discovered that none of these antigens were actually in the vaccine, which means it had zero antibodies to the intended antigens to be created. This was a huge shock, and in addition to that they also found the following:

Traces of 65 chemical cross-contaminants from other manufacturing lines:

  • chemical toxins;
  • unrecognizable macromolecules;
  • various free bacterial peptides that are potential allergens and are capable of inducing autoimmune reactions.

According to Corvelva,

Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis toxoids, D antigens of Poliomyelitis 1-2-3, hepatitis B proteins obtained with genetic engineering and Haemophylus polysaccharides chemically linked to tetanus toxoid as carrier. Toxoids are created by treatments with formaldehyde and glutaraldehyde that should remove toxicity keeping intact their ability to stimulate protective antibodies against original toxins.

We were expecting to find the three toxoids and the other antigens not modified by treatment with formaldehyde and glutaraldehyde, to separate the antigens from each other and to be digestible by the enzyme specific for proteins (trypsin). We have found instead a real polymer, insoluble and indigestible, that we supposed to be the set of antigens chemically bound together (has to be defined if this is present as an aggregate of the individual antigens or a single macromolecule), on which we can find in literature partial information regarding the single antigens.

This macromolecule could not be recognized in any way by the protein databases, and in fact it turned out to be a solid compound of an unknown chemical structure.

Proteins solubility and their digestion (i.e. the capacity to divide them into small peptide fragments) are two typical proteins characteristics that not only makes it possible to study them through some specific analysis methods but are also fundamental for the interaction with the immune system to create protective antibodies, because if the protein structure is heavily altered from the original one, the new antibodies result completely different from those that are able to attack the original antibodies causing illnesses.

Since this polymer we have encountered, derived from the antigenic mix, is not only different for its spatial conformation but it’s chemically different, so we can state that we are not facing antigens similar to the original ones but in the form of a compound with an unknown and unpredictable toxicity and efficacy. (source)

The fact that the vaccine antigens were not detected is seriously concerning, and so is the fact that, of the 65 signs of chemical contaminants, only 35% are known. This was only the first phase of this safety testing, as a second analytical study with standard controls will be released.

7 chemical toxins were also identified, and the group states that these toxins have a structure that could probably be partially derived from the formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde and cyanogen bromide reactions with other chemical contaminants in the vaccine.

We’d like to point out that the toxicity of many of these toxins have been confirmed and published in Pubchem or Toxnet and this poses important safety problems, issues and concerns.

From the protein and peptide fraction study, various free peptides of bacterial origin have been obtained probably coming from the bacterial culture cells used for the antigen extraction. Literature reports bacterial peptides as potential allergens 5 and also as capable of inducing autoimmune reactions 6 and these too put a safety issue that needs to be further clarified with the regulatory bodies.

Coming back to the two basic principles that have been our topic on this analysis path, we reaffirm what we have said in the recent interview on the scientific journal Nature: we are inquiring the vaccines efficacy and safety and we can’t quite understand how it is possible to claim that this vaccine is even able to generate the 6 protective antibodies – reason why it is designed for – and furthermore to understand how this cluster made of 6 neurotoxic antigens bound together can be claimed as not toxic for newborns.

Infanrix Hexa hexavalent, as for the method we have commissioned, casts major doubts on both its effectiveness and on its safety…

One thing is for sure: we will not stop to proceed.

More Vaccine Controversy From Italy

In the 90s, Dr. Antonietta Gatti discovered the relationship between micro- and nano-particles as well as a great number of pathologies: cardiovascular diseases, many forms of cancer, multiple neurological diseases, and autoimmune diseases. She’s taken part in many international research projects, including the pathologies induced by depleted uranium, waste incineration, food polluted with inorganic particles, and more.

Currently, she is the coordinator of the Italian Institute of Technology’s Project of Nanoecotoxicology, called INESE.

She is also a selected expert of the FAO/WHO for the safety in nanotechnological food, a Member of the NANOTOX Cluster of the European Commission, the author of the book “Nanopathology: the health impact of nanoparticles,” on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Biomaterials Applications, and a Member of the CPCM of the Italian Ministry of Defense.

Furthermore, her and her husband Dr. Stefano Montanari founded a laboratory called Nano-diagnostics for the evaluation of the pathological tissues of patients. It’s presently at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy.

Recently, the Italian police raided their home, and the police took all  digital assets that were owned by the the two nanopathologists including their laptops, computers, and flash-drives; basically years of work and research.

James Grundvig via the World Mercury Project describes what happened quite well:

“Because Gatti and Montanari had taken their research of nanodust and nanoparticles, from in-vivo (performed in a living organism) and in-vitro (performed in a test tube) to what unseen contamination might reside in vaccines in 2016, they came under the microscope of the United States, European, and Italian authorities. They had touched the third rail of medicine. They had crossed the no-go zone with the purported crime being scientific research and discovery. By finding nano-contamination in random vaccines, Gatti and Montanari revealed, for the first time, what no one knew: Vaccines had more than aluminum salts adjuvants, Polysorbate-80, and other inorganic chemicals in them, they also harbored stainless steel, tungsten, copper, and other metals and rare elements that don’t belong in shots given to fetuses, pregnant women, newborns, babies and toddlers developing their lungs, immune and nervous systems.”

The scientists published their work in January of 2017, titled, New QualityControl Investigations on Vaccines: Micro and Nanocontamination. If science wasn’t plagued by corruption, an investigation would have started, healthcare agencies would be involved, and vaccine safety policies would have come under intense scrutiny, but that never happened.

You can read more about this story and access an interview with the scientists here.

The Takeaway

There are numerous vaccine safety issues. The bioaccumulation of various vaccine ingredients, for example, are one. Ingredients like aluminum have been added to vaccines for more than 100 years under the assumption that they are safe. It’s only within the last couple years that scientists decided to look to see where these ingredients go after being injected. They found that aluminum, when injected, doesn’t exit the body, it actually travels to distant organs and the brain. You can access those studies and read more about that here. You can also watch a short video from Dr. Christopher Shaw from the University of British Colombia explaining the difference between injectable aluminum and the aluminum our body takes in from food. Here is another related study you can read that goes into further detail.

The main point I’m trying to make is that no parent should ever be made to feel guilty for not vaccinating their children. Vaccines are clearly not as safe as they’re marketed to be, and it’s important that we ask ourselves why this type of information goes virtually unacknowledged by the masses.
