What’s the Truth Behind MMR Vaccine Testing? by Joseph Mercola

Joseph Mercola is probably the best doctor regularly writing for the Internet. From Mercola at lewrockwell.com:

The following referenced information contains opinion and perspective on a health topic related to vaccine science, policy, law or ethics that is being discussed in public forums, including in medical, law and other professional journals; newspapers, magazines and other print; broadcast and online media outlets; state legislatures and the U.S. Congress.

Readers are encouraged to go to the websites of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for the perspective of federal agencies responsible for vaccine research, development, regulation and policymaking, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for information on vaccine policymaking; to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for information on regulating vaccines for safety and effectiveness; and to National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) for information on research and the development of new vaccines.

The World Health Organization has stated that “vaccine hesitancy” is one of the top 10 global public health threats.

April 2, 2018, I posted an article in which I discussed the 2010 lawsuit filed against Merck by two former virologists employed by the company. The whistleblowers claim Merck lied about the effectiveness of the mumps portion of its MMR II (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine, artificially inflating its efficacy in testing.1,2

For example, the MMR vaccine’s effectiveness was tested against the virus used in the vaccine rather than the natural, wild mumps virus that you’d actually be exposed to in the real world. Animal antibodies were also said to have been added to the test results to give the appearance of a robust immune response.3

While the lawsuit was given the green light to proceed in 2014,4,5 it’s still pending to this day — a remarkable fact considering the call for mandatory MMR vaccination following recent outbreaks of measles. You’d think such a lawsuit would be given at least some measure of consideration.

No Enigma: Vaccines and the Food Allergy Epidemic, by the Children’s Health Defense Team

The food allergy epidemic didn’t just happen, it has a very clear and definable cause. From the Children’s Health Defense Team at childrenshealthdefense.org:

The United States faces an ever-worsening food allergy epidemic. An estimated 1 in 12 children (8%) have food allergies, and prevalence has risen by at least 50% since 1997. Childhood food allergies are the most common cause of anaphylaxis (a “severe allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death”). A decade-long analysis of billions of health care claims reported a nationwide increase of 377% in claims for anaphylactic food reactions, and a separate analysis of emergency department (ED) visits over roughly the same period documented a 214% increase in visits for food-induced anaphylaxis—observed in children of all ages but with the highest rates in infants and toddlers. Peanut and tree nut allergies—which have tripledsince 1997—are the most frequent triggers of ED visits for anaphylaxis, and over a third (35%) of the children who experience peanut-related anaphylaxis do so following their very first exposure.

Whereas there is widespread agreement that these food allergy trends spell out bad news for children and families, there is little consensus on the epidemic’s supposedly “enigmatic” causes. This declared bafflement is itself puzzling because—as Children’s Health Defense has written previously—multiple strands of published evidence—including experiments dating back over a hundred years—indicate that injected vaccines are major culprits. The massive expansion of the vaccine schedule since the late 1980s, day-of-birth hepatitis B vaccination, changes in vaccine technology and the growing use of immune-dysregulating aluminum adjuvants are all factors that can explain the immune system overactivation currently manifesting in the form of food allergies. In addition, as discussed in a new article in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Research, proteins in vaccines often produce “off-target immune responses” and, concerningly, these protein components are entirely untested and unregulated.

Pediatrician Explains Fallacy Of Media-Hyped Hysteria About The Measles, by Arjun Walia

Another in SLL’s continuing efforts to counter the rampant disinformation about vaccinations. From Arjun Walia at collectiveevolution.com:

IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Dr. Bob Sears, a paediatrician, in an interview with Del Bigtree shares some facts about measles as well as the measles vaccine that the mainstream media is completely ignoring.
  • Reflect On:Why is fear constantly used to push vaccination? Why does the mainstream never address nor counter the points made by vaccine awareness advocates and simply labels them as “anti-vax conspiracy theorists?”

A few quick facts that I’ve covered in numerous articles. Firstly, there is clear evidence that shows measles outbreaks have occurred in highly vaccinated populations throughout history.  For example, during the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees. Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences.

The media generated high public anxiety. This fear mongering led to the demonization of unvaccinated children, who were perceived as the spreaders of this disease. Rebecca J. McNall, a co-author of the published report, is a CDC official in the Division of Viral Diseases who had the data proving that the measles outbreak was in part caused by the vaccine. It is evidence of the vaccine’s failure to provide immunity. (source)

Is 5G Worth the Risks? by IIshana Artra

5G operates at extremely high frequencies that could pose serious human health hazards. From Iishana Artra at counterpunch.org:

In recent months there’s been a lot of talk about 5G – the next generation of wireless technology. 5G is being touted as a necessary step to the ‘internet of things’ – a world in which our refrigerators alert us when we’re low on milk, our baby’s diapers tell us when they need to be changed, and Netflix is available everywhere, all the time. But what we’re not hearing is that evidence-based studies worldwide have clearly established the harmful effects of human exposure to pulsed radiofrequency radiation from cell towers, cell phones and other devices – and that 5G will make the problem exponentially worse.

Most people believe that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) carefully assesses the health risks of these technologies before approving them. But in testimony taken by Senator Blumenthal of Connecticut, the FCC admitted it has not conducted any safety studies on 5G.

Three Profoundly-important, Science-based Articles from India with Observations on the US sanctioned “Vaccine Holocaust of Newborns, Infants and Children”, by Gary G. Kohls, MD

If someone tells you that science has “proved” that vaccinations are safe, tell them science has proven no such thing, and in fact the proof goes the other. Here’s a good article to help you make that case, from Gary G. Kohls, MD, at lewrockwell.com:

(Whose parents, it needs to be said, have been well-trained to be obedient patients and therefore frequently accept – without hesitation and without doing their own research – allowing invasive procedures like multiple vaccines being injected simultaneously into the tiny muscles of their infants (combinations of which have never been proven to be safe).

Overwhelmingly, that parental consent is not “informed consent” as required by law. Uninformed consent is therefore often given without the parents being properly informed of the potential hazards, short or long-term. Therefore their children are at high risk of becoming sickened – sooner or later – with vaccine toxin-induced illnesses.

It is important that all parents or guardians of infants and children read the following information carefully and studiously before consenting to future vaccinations.) (2,365 words)

Japan Leads the Way: No Vaccine Mandates and No MMR Vaccine = Healthier Children, by Kristina Kristen

If innoculations are supposedly essential to promote childhood health, why does the country which immunizes the most have such lousy childhood health statistics? From Kristina Kristen at childrenshealthdefense.org:

The Promise of Good Health; Are We Jumping Off the Cliff in the U.S.?

In the United States, many legislators and public health officials are busy trying to make vaccines de facto compulsory—either by removing parental/personal choice given by existing vaccine exemptions or by imposing undue quarantines and fines on those who do not comply with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) vaccine edicts. Officials in California are seeking to override medical opinion about fitness for vaccination, while those in New York are mandating the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine for 6-12-month-old infants for whom its safety and effectiveness “have not been established.”

The U.S. has the very highest infant mortality rate of all industrialized countries, with more American children dying at birth and in their first year than in any other comparable nation—and more than half of those who survive develop at least one chronic illness.

American children would be better served if these officials—before imposing questionable and draconian measures—studied child health outcomes in Japan. With a population of 127 million, Japan has the healthiest children and the very highest “healthy life expectancy” in the world—and the least vaccinated children of any developed country. The U.S., in contrast, has the developed world’s most aggressive vaccination schedule in number and timing, starting at pregnancy, at birth and in the first two years of life. Does this make U.S. children healthier? The clear answer is no. The U.S. has the very highest infant mortality rate of all industrialized countries, with more American children dying at birth and in their first year than in any other comparable nation—and more than half of those who survive develop at least one chronic illness. Analysis of real-world infant mortality and health results shows that U.S. vaccine policy does not add up to a win for American children.

Just released: Social Security earned a pitiful 2.8% on your money last year, by Simon Black

Social Security is broke and next year expenses will exceed revenues. Medicare is broke, too. From Simon Black at sovereignman.com:

Hot off the presses: The Board of Trustees for the Social Security and Medicare programs in the United States just released their annual report a few minutes ago.

And if you want to read all of its gory detail, check it out for yourself here.

Both of these programs are massively and terminally underfunded. And not by a little bit.

The Board of Trustees itself calculates Social Security’s long-term shortfall at a mind boggling $43+ TRILLION.

Simply put, the trust funds don’t have enough money to keep the programs going, at least under the current promises.

They admit right at the beginning of their report that, starting 2020, Social Security’s cost will exceed the money it earns in from interest and taxes.

That’s not some far out date decades into the future. That’s next year. And every year after that.

By 2034, just 15 years from now, Social Security’s primary trust fund will be fully depleted. And one of Medicare’s trust funds will run out of money in 2026.
