How Vaccines Compromise the Immune System

The presupposition is that vaccines are protecting us from deadly diseases. A common observation is the occurrence of a flu-like illness in those who have received the flu vaccine. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) the efficacy of the flu vaccine in the elderly is 30 to 40 percent. In many cases, the subject does not need immunizing, such as newborns from healthy mothers who receive the hepatitis B vaccine. Mumps, rubella and chickenpox tend not to be deadly diseases. People whose children have become autistic, hyperactive, allergic or autoimmune have blamed the vaccines. How can vaccines cause diseases when they are supposed to protect us from them?
Our immune systems most effectively attack invading organisms that are inhaled, ingested or touched. The first line of defense against viruses and bacteria is immunoglobulin A (IgA), which is found in the mucosal linings of our noses and intestines and in our saliva. A deficiency of IgA causes allergies and frequent colds.
Injecting a disease bypasses this first line of defense. When bypassed the IgA transmutes to immunoglobulin E (IgE), the harbinger for recurrent infections. As the B cells, that make antibodies to antigens, increase, activated by the antigens in the vaccine, the T cells, which are responsible for cell-based immunity and cell memory, decrease. Cell memory makes those of us who have actually experienced the disease completely immune thereafter, whereas those who get vaccines sometimes get what they were vaccinated for: whooping cough, measles or chickenpox. Since 1979, with the rare exception of someone coming into this country with polio, the live oral polio vaccine has caused all other cases of polio in the U.S.
The virus in any vaccine is cultured on tissue from monkeys, chicks or aborted fetuses, which have produced antigens that cannot be filtered out. These antigens can affect the human body. For example, the antibody to the myelin (the protective sheath around nerves) protein from chick cell culture can cross react with human tissue, causing myelin destruction of the vaccine receiver, which can cause ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), mental retardation, Lou Gehrig's disease, multiple sclerosis, seizures and other autoimmune disorders.
Another cause of these autoimmune conditions is molecular mimicry. The measles virus has proteins very similar to those in myelin, so the antibodies setting out to destroy the virus end up destroying the myelin of those vaccinated, causing postvaccinal encephalomyelitis, which has been renamed autism.
The hyperactivity of the B cells make autoantibodies that attack different tissues, causing allergies, Crohn's disease, colitis, juvenile diabetes and other autoimmune problems, depending on the targeted tissue. Most of these problems appear in children who undergo heavy vaccination programs. Many of our veterans, also heavily vaccinated, have neurological problems.
The ingredients of vaccines do not include eye of newt, which would at least contain vitamin A, but they do contain an impressive array of toxic substances in addition to the actual viruses. There are antibiotics that can cause reactions in those who are allergic; aluminum that has been implicated in the promotion of Alzheimer's disease; MSG and egg proteins, both of which are allergens for some people; thimerosal, a neurotoxin; formaldehyde, a carcinogen and aborted fetal tissue, which compromises the beliefs of those against abortion.
This article barely scratches the surface of the true nature of vaccines. We take them and give them to our kids out of fear and because schools and programs have excluded those who refuse vaccinations. One out of six children is labeled learning disabled, one out of 166 children is autistic, most of whom are boys. The numbers have risen in proportion to the number of vaccines given.
