Wired.com Pushing Pro-Vaccine Articles
Critical of Those Who Oppose Vaccines
Conde Nast online publication that caters to techy people, has published
a wave of articles critical of those who oppose massive over-vaccination
of the American population.
These articles declare those individuals who oppose mass vaccination
to be "misinformants." Celebrities like Jenny McCarthy,
Jim Carrey, Don Imus and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who openly oppose
submission to mass vaccination, are belittled. These articles
claim those who dont get vaccinated are endangering everybody
Here are the provoking headlines of those wired.com articles:

Epidemic of Fear: How Panicked
Parents Skipping Shots Endangers Us All
These wired.com articles are written by skilled writers and they
make strong though narrow arguments. The second title, "How
to win an argument about vaccines" suggests those who oppose
vaccination are irrational and ill informed and their thinking
needs to be changed by those of superior intelligence.
The war is not vaccines versus alternatives, but is characterized
as science versus pseudoscience. The authors of the wired.com
reports havent the brainpower or critical thinking to question
the twelve published studies that conclude vaccines dont
cause autism. What matters is that their god of science has been
challenged. And there may be nothing wrong with those studies,
its just that the vaccine proponents arent looking
outside the box, about questions that arent being asked
but should be.
Here is how reporter Amy Wallace poses the battle:
"And finally, the so called bogus treatments
for autism dont exist in opposition to scientific treatments,
they exist because of an absence of scientific treatments. There
is no cure and as of yet, no known cause for autism. The medical
community is still working out how to even test kids for autism.
How can you possibly fault a parent for being fearful and wanting
to help their child and using whatever method is available to
them. Every disease has gone through this phase, before cancer
had a clear cut medical approach to treatment people tried all
sorts of treatments that we now consider scientifically unsound."
Of course there are no cures for cancer either. Cancer treatment
results in a faster demise of the patient. So the example provided
here is flawed.
Recognize that vaccines, antibiotics and anti-flu drugs are driving
humanity towards a box canyon. Eventually there will be no antibiotics,
vaccines or man-made drugs that germs havent developed resistance
towards. Follow these vaccine pied pipers and there will be a
day when billions of people die of needless plagues because of
over-reliance upon vaccines.
When that day comes, humanity will be using remedies that are
now being ridiculed by the proponents of vaccines vitamin
D, vitamin C, the trace mineral selenium and extracts from oregano
(carvacrol), garlic (allicin) and grape skins (resveratrol, quercetin)
to quell future epidemics without treatment resistance.
Amy Wallace recounts here experience at an anti-vaccine conference:
"To a one, the speakers told parents not to despair. Vitamin
D would help, said one doctor and supplement salesman who projected
the equation "No vaccines + more vitamin d = no autism"
onto a huge screen during his presentation. (If only it were that
simple.) Others talked of the powers of enzymes, enemas, infrared
saunas, glutathione drips, chelation therapy
Yes, we who oppose unquestioned vaccination want good scientific
underpinnings behind treatments for infectious disease too. It
just depends upon what science you are reading.
How about "Vitamin
effects on the immune system: vitamins A and D take centre stage,"
recently published in the journal Nature Review Immunology (Sept
2008 8(9):68598), written by researchers at Harvard Medical
Vaccine inventor Paul Offit calls advocates for these natural
remedies "autisms false prophets," and wrote a book
with the same title. He says any remedies that currently exist
are promoted by a dangerous "cottage industry of false hope."
Whats in the closet?
Modern medicine wouldnt be hiding any of its vaccine mistakes
in the closet, would it? Uh, think again, a vaccination program
in 1993 was so lethal that it set back the life expectancy of
Americans for the first time since the 1918 Spanish flu, but it
was completely white-washed never even reported. (See here.)
As you read my rebuttal to the vaccine cartel here, you should
not be intimidated by scientists or doctors who claim to know
more than you do. Im going to take you on a short course
to examine some recent research studies for yourself. You can
click on the links to read the abstracts of these studies.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota note that prenatal
viral infection is associated with the development of schizophrenia
and autism. These researchers took laboratory mice and exposed
them to flu viruses in the womb and found that this produced a
gene expression pattern consistent with what is seen in autism.
Research 2009 Jul; 112(13):4653.]
In 2005 the same researchers showed, for the first time, that
prenatal flu virus infection in early pregnancy leads to "alterations
in a subset of genes in brains of offspring potentially leading
to permanent changes in brain structure and function." [Synapse.
2005 Aug; 57(2):919.]
MRI imaging reveals significant brain atrophy (shrinkage) in
multiple brain areas of the 35-day-old virally infected mouse
offspring (right panel) as compared to sham infected mice (left
From the same study, examine the tremendous difference in brain
chemicals (called neurotransmitters) between flu-infected and
uninfected laboratory mice. [Schizophrenia
Research 2008 Feb; 99(13):5670.]
This science is being inappropriately used to target pregnant
women for early flu vaccination. I wrote these researchers, saying
their studies are a tacit admission that vaccines could potentially
induce brain disorders in the womb since the vaccines ARE the
virus, or at least less active forms of the flu virus (the nasally-instilled
flu vaccine IS the "live" virus). Show the public the
gene expression patterns in fetal mice exposed to the flu vaccine.
This is an experiment they dont conduct.
The modern-day puzzle of disease
Few investigators put together pieces of the modern puzzle to
notice that the upsurge of autism occurred concurrently with an
increase in rates of vaccination and a rise in antibiotic resistance
as well as greater number of children suffering from asthma, diabetes,
gluten intolerance and celiac disease as well as autism. These
were largely unheard of decades ago.
Recognition of the germ theory of disease is growing. Cancer,
diabetes, heart disease and age-related brain disease have all
been linked to bacteria and viruses.
The origin of autism
After a review of the scientific literature, I maintain autism
is a brain infection. These other diseases, childhood diabetes,
asthma, etc., also have links to germs.
Vaccines ARE a little bit of infectious disease, employed to
trigger an immune response. To gain a better understanding of
the full picture here, read my online book The Hidden Epidemic.
The Hidden Epidemic explains the history of autism is rooted
in childhood schizophrenia, which is what autism was called in
an earlier era. There is unequivocal data to show cases of schizophrenia
are caused by infection. So why not autism?
Now here is the scientific world reporting more and more young
children are becoming mentally withdrawn and unstable, yet the
scientists havent a clue what is causing this phenomenon.
But they are sure it isnt vaccines. Vaccines subject children
to a little bit of disease, often before they have a fully developed
immune system and blood-brain barrier.
Smug and arrogant scientific dogma
So be good boys and girls and dont question the scientific
elitists who tell you what is good for your children and what
isnt. You are all like dumb uneducated people living in
huts in some backward country. What could you possibly know anyway?
Wired.com reporter Wallace says "the doubters and deniers
are empowered by the Internet (online, nobody knows youre
not a doctor) and helped by the mainstream media, which has an
interest in pumping up bad science to create a "debate"
where there should be none." Shall we let Wallace do all
the thinking for us?
After all, those who dont vaccinate their kids endanger
all the rest of us, that is if you buy into what Amy Wallace says
in her column entitled: "How Panicked Parents Skipping Shots
Endangers Us All."
Even researchers at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta
concede that "effectiveness of currently licensed vaccines
in the United States is about 3050% in preventing complications
arising from influenza and preventing death from all causes during
winter months in older adults." [Current
Topics Microbiology Immunology 2009;333:41329]
If humanity totally relies upon ineffective vaccines, we are
doomed to be vulnerable to every plague that passes by.
What IS endangering us all is treatment for the flu. Flawed treatment
appears to have caused most of the flu-related death over the
past decades since the Spanish flu of 1918. In fact, it appears
more flu deaths result from treatment than the disease itself.
The context of Wallaces column is the growing number of
parents who arent submitting their children for flu vaccination
this season. What Wallace fails to examine is that there is no
strong evidence to show that vaccines prevent flu-related death.
Yes, vaccines have saved lives, but the technology is archaic.
It is 1798 cow pox know-how, first implemented by Dr. Edward Jenner.
It has seen its day. Many of the vaccines wouldnt even be
needed if the world had clean water, public hygiene, clean foods
and better nutrition. Immunity is weak in the malnourished. Vaccines
arent an appropriate answer to this problem.
We enter a new era that of mobilizing the human immune
system against disease. Undernutrition or malnutrition adversely
affects defenses against many invading microorganisms, which increases
the severity of infection. Studies have shown that selenium or
vitamin E deficiency in mice increases disease severity when animals
are infected with influenza virus. [Clinical
Infectious Diseases 2007 Aug 15;45(4):4704] Nutritional
status has been called "the neglected virulence factor."
Microbiology 2004 Sep;12(9):41723] Why are we trying
to rescue people from the doorstep of death with vaccines before
we correct underlying nutritional imbalances?
Blocking communicable disease
Where are all these communicable diseases coming from that require
a plethora of vaccines? America needs to practice preventive medicine
by screening entrants into the country. Whooping cough, hepatitis
and tuberculosis travel over the border in large numbers every
day and there is no public health screening program, not even
in schools or food establishments where immigrant children and
workers abound. We are allowing disease to be spread to create
a larger market for the vaccines.
We permit unclean foods to reach the market, contaminated with
runoff of animal feces that harbor E. coli, Salmonella, etc.,
and we permit 2.5% of milk cartons to reach the store shelf that
harbor paratuberculosis. Then we try to block these infections
with vaccines. Its insane.
Recognize, Japan doesnt accept American food products because
health authorities there know the American food chain is contaminated
with Campylobacter (chicken), Salmonella (chicken, cheese), E.
Coli (red meat) and paratuberculosis (milk).
Between unscreened immigrants who enter the country harboring
infectious disease and unclean food that is ubiquitous in the
food chain, America has become a cooking pot for communicable
disease. Vaccines have become the cure all.
Flawed thinking: Infectious disease is a vaccine deficiency
The idea of a vaccine for every communicable disease is not something
the human body was designed to withstand. When we subject children
to the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, Rubella) we give them a little
bit of three diseases, or at least the immune response to three
diseases, all at once. Pediarix is a new 5-in-one combination
vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B and polio.
Seasonal flu shots subject a person to three strains of the flu
all at one time.
By the way, since when does staying healthy require a sacrifice
at the temple of modern medicine? People living in many rural
areas and backwards countries live longer and healthier, with
very low rates of cancer and autism, without doctoring. Is health
maintenance beyond the intellect of the average American? Are
we allowed to stay healthy without vaccination and drugs? Or this
no longer permitted?
The scary part of vaccine-inventor Offits rationale for
mass vaccination is that he actually believes in medical fascism.
Here is how Offit says it:
"We have seat belt rules," he says. "Seat belts
save lives. There was never a question about that. The data was
absolutely clear. But people didnt use them until they were
required to use them. Unless you fly through the window and hit
somebody else," he adds. "I believe in mandates. I do."
There you have it, with a few million bucks for Offit to pocket
to boot. Line your children up now and submit them be inoculated
with 48 doses of 14 different vaccines before the age of 6. Never
mind to question any of this. You are too ill-informed to even
ask intelligent questions. Just do what you are told.
Not to worry. Forced vaccination is politically unpalatable.
They will think of lacing the vaccines in your Kool Aid. Edible
vaccines are actually under development. [Advanced
Drug Delivery Review 2006 Apr 20; 58(1):6889]
