Pentavalent in India: Twisting data to justify a killer vaccine


New Far East Killer Vaccine

For the entire article:

So far, 21 have so far died in India in a limited experiment with the vaccine. Last week the Vietnamese Government´s Drug Regulatory Authority stopped the new form of vaccine – a Pentavalent vaccine – after the vaccine caused nine death.
The new vaccine was introduced because vaccine uptake for the previous vaccine has been poor.  The new vaccine is a combination vaccine; a Pentavalent vaccine.  This vaccine combines Hib and Hepatitis B vaccine with the widely used DPT vaccine. The vaccine is not licensed for use in the West but is promoted in Asia.
The Minz Study, a comprehensive, 2-years study sponsored by the WHO, found an incidence of Hib meningitis of  7/100000 children under-five.  The figure for a saving of 175 deaths in 5 years is suggested by a mortality of 10%.
The present paper and its commentary were published this week in the Indian Journal of Medical Research in this context.
The article by Padmanabhan Ramachandran and colleagues available here suggests:
1.       Hib was found to be the predominant cause of bacterial meningitis in young children.  Hib meningitis was responsible for 58% to 74% of children with abnormalities in the Cerebro Spinal Fluid, CSF.
2.       41% in Vellore are immunized against Hib and that is why the proportion of Hib was 58% here compared to 74% elsewhere.
3.       Hib accounted for 70% of bacteriologically confirmed meningitis.
An invited commentary accompanying the article is entitled
1.       It shows that the Hib antigen was detected only in 8.75 per cent of patients with an abnormal CSF cytology and not 74% or 58% as suggested in the article.
2.   There were only 7 cases of Hib meningitis in Vellore and one was vaccinated. The incidence of meningitis among those vaccinated in Vellore was not statistically different from those unvaccinated.
3. The Latex agglutination Test (LATS) used by the study to detect the cause of meningitis, picks up 93% cases of Hib but only 39% Neisseria meningitides. Thus LATS cannot be used to look at the relative incidence of different causes of meningitis.
Conflict of Interests
The commentary says that one of the authors has a declared conflict of interest. Quoting Als-Nielsen and colleagues the reviewer says such conflict of interests has little impact on the results or data reported but it influenced the interpretation of the results and the conclusions drawn. “The fact that the data are not impacted by conflicts of interest provides persuasive reason to publish the figures from large trials such as this, regardless of the declared conflicts of interests. Publication allows data to be put out in the public domain. It can be interpreted by the scientific community, separately from the interpretations of the authors. Discerning readers and decision makers can use the data provided for health policy, based on sound cost–benefit calculations”

U N Seeks to Make Vaccinations Mandatory

U N Seeks to Make Vaccinations Mandatory


The United Nations, in a cleverly crafted move, is stealthily moving towards a regime of mandatory vaccination. It is doing this by invoking Article 24 on the Convention of the Right to the Child which says every child has the right to , "the highest attainable standards of health". Ironically it is this right that should ensure a total ban on vaccines.

There are many studies available now that clearly demonstrate that vaccinated children suffer from myriad severe and chronic diseases caused due to a misguided immune system, the toxic effects of the dangerous ingredients and contaminants in vaccines, and by suppressing normal childhood illnesses, that apart from conferring permanent immunity also prevent many chronic diseases later in life.

Vaccinated are not intended to provide health. They are intended merely to create blood related antibodies which have time and again proved itself inadequate to prevent the illnesses vaccines are supposed to protect against. In case of many illnesses it is the vaccinated who suffer and the blame is always directed towards a few unvaccinated children who often form less than 1% of the total child population. This is a clear admission that vaccination does not pass the disease challenge.

Recent studies have demonstrated how vaccines invariably cause autoimmune illnesses, how vaccines risks are blatantly ignored, how vaccines do not confer protection and how, due to vaccines, mothers no longer possess natural antibodies which they pass on to children via the breast milk.

The situation is very serious as we are seeing extremely sick children today who suffer from asthma, allergies, attention deficit disorders, behavioral disorders, learning disorders, neurological disorders, mental illnesses, serious addictions, cancers, diabetes, obesity, heart disorders, ear, nose and throat infections, weak eyesight, paralysis, developmental disorders, autism, weak eysight, hearing disorders, cerebral palsy, sudden death, kidney failures, liver damage, and other disabilities which are assuming epidemic proportions. Our children have lost both their health as well as normal childhood.

Under these circumstances the intentions of the United Nations to make vaccinations mandatory needs a critical look.

Bringing a human rights perspective to the debate surrounding the vaccination of children


by Paula Gerber - The debate around whether children should be vaccinated against illness such as the measles and whooping cough tends to be highly emotive and divisive, with the medical profession on one side talking about epidemics and quoting lots of scientific data, and concerned parents on the other side, recounting heart wrenching stories of adverse reactions, including even death, following immunisation.
What is missing from the discussion is a calm and considered reflection of the human rights of the children at the heart of the controversy.

This week NSW Opposition Leader John Robertson intends to introduce a bill to amend the Public Health Act to allow childcare centres and schools to ban children who have not been vaccinated. Is such a move consistent with the rights of children?

Australia ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child well over a decade ago. This means that we have agreed that,

In all actions concerning children, whether undertaken by public or private social welfare institutions, courts of law, administrative authorities or legislative bodies, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.” 

Can vaccination provide immunity?


Vaccination is not immunity

WASHINGTON, April 30, 2013 - Immunity is enhancing the immune system. The seat of immunity is primarily found in the gastrointestinal system. Mast cells are the major sensory input of the innate immune system. These cells are on the lookout for foreign invaders. Also, they help regulate acute inflammation from the beginning to end. Once the mast cell detects a pathogen or foreign intruder, it releases special chemicals, cytokines, that attack the intruders and then circulate in the body to recruit other cells of the immune system. This overarching regulatory control over innate immune processes has made mast cells successful targets to purposefully enhance or, alternatively, suppress mast cell responses in multiple therapeutic contexts. J Immunol. 2013 May 1;190(9):4458-63. doi: 10.4049/jimmunol.1203420.
Around the mast cells are the nerve endings of the sympathetic and parasympathetic, the automatic nervous system. When a foreign intruder is detected, the mast cells alert the autonomic nervous system, the part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus controls the sympathetic and parasympathetic output or state of reaction to the entire body. 
Ultimately your immunity and response is dependent upon the response of your hypothalamus. This part of your brain also receives many other signals: Sugar levels. If either high or low sugar levels are detected your hypothalamus will make a response to the pancreas and liver to elevate sugar if too low or lower sugar if too high.  Heat or cold. If your hypothalamus detects body temperature decreasing it will stimulate your thyroid gland via your pituitary gland to increase thyroid output, thyroxine T4, or triiodothyronine (T3), to increase metabolism. If you are  too warm, your hypothalamus will activate your parasympathetic nervous system to dilate blood vessels to release heat, slow your heart rate and breathing rate down to decrease body output. Each of these areas in the hypothalamus may affect the others by location. Which leads us to immune control.
Your gut and your immune system. 
Your parasympathetic nervous system is in the ventromedial hypothalamus. Lesions in this nucleus can directly change the expression of immune-related gene families. Kiba T, Yagyu K. J Neuroimmunol. 2013 Apr 15;257(1-2):1-6. In other words, when your hypothalamus is dysfunctional (too high sugar, or too low or it goes through early degeneration) the output has a direct affect on the response it makes through protein synthesis. It does not react the same way.
Back to the mast cells. When you have more foreign pathogens in the form of food, microbes, or any other foreign invader including vaccines, there will be an inflammatory response. In the case of vaccines, there will often be swelling, inflammation, sometimes fevers, sometime gastrointestinal reactions, which are all a hypothalamic-autonomic response. As well there will be a cellular lymphocytic, mast cell response in the gut.
When this foreign intrusion increases there will be excess autonomic reactivity as well as mast cell reactivity; the immune system will trigger an even greater response. A broad diversity of pro-inflammatory cytokines, chemical agents triggered by the immune system, will be produced. These cytokines, are often the main causes of virtually all chronic diseases and autoimmune conditions causing most of the chronic suffering and ultimately death in our society today. Pick your disease: asthma, diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, cancer all have pro-inflammatory cytokines linked to them. 
It is the “cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway” (CAP) that mediates the anti-inflammatory phenotype and the range of health benefits associated with physical activity. Physical activity, by enhancing parasympathetic tone and activating the CAP, may be a therapeutic strategy to restrain chronic inflammation and prevent many chronic diseases.Med Hypotheses. 2013 May;80(5):548-52. Lujan HLDicarlo SE. Department of Physiology, Wayne State University, School of Medicine.
Pediatricians and the proponents of vaccine as a means for increasing the immune system may well be causing more of the inflammatory response beginning with the mast cell and other lymphatic cells all the way to the ventromedial hypothalamic autonomic response.

The present review summarizes data on neurological adverse events following vaccination 
in the relation to intensity, time of onset, taking into account the immunological and non-immunological mechanisms. The authors described the physiological development of the immune system and the possible immune system responses following vaccination. Toxic property of thimerosal - a mercury-containing preservative used in some vaccines was presented. The neurological complications after vaccination were described. The role 
of vaccination in the natural course of infectious diseases and the current immunizations schedule in Poland was discussed.

Key words: vaccination, neurologic adverse events

Abstract

http://jid.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/04/29/infdis.jit143.full

Background. The combined measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine has been successfully administered for >20 years. Because of this, protection by maternal antibodies in infants born to vaccinated mothers might be negatively affected.
Methods. A large cross-sectional serologic survey was conducted in the Netherlands during 2006–2007. We compared the kinetics of antibody concentrations in children and women of childbearing age in the highly vaccinated general population with those in orthodox Protestant communities that were exposed to outbreaks.
Results. The estimated duration of protection by maternal antibodies among infants in the general population, most of whom were born to vaccinated mothers, was short: 3.3 months for measles, 2.7 months for mumps, 3.9 months for rubella, and 3.4 months for varicella. The duration of protection against measles was 2 months longer for infants born in the orthodox communities, most of whom had unvaccinated mothers. For rubella, mothers in the orthodox communities had higher concentrations of antibodies as compared to the general population.
Conclusions. Children of mothers vaccinated against measles and, possibly, rubella have lower concentrations of maternal antibodies and lose protection by maternal antibodies at an earlier age than children of mothers in communities that oppose vaccination. This increases the risk of disease transmission in highly vaccinated populations.

More evidence: Vaccines did not prevent disease..

Irrefutable Evidence Shows Historical Application of Vaccines Had No Health Benefit or Impact on Prevention of Infectious Disease

For the entire article please visit:
A summary review of data on neurological adverse events and the historical role of vaccination in the natural course of infectious disease in Switzerland and Germany, supports data from other regions with evidence that vaccines had no impact on disease prevention efforts from the early-mid to late 20th century. The data contradicts widespread misinformation campaigns by mainstream medicine which claim that vaccination led to immunization and a subsequent decline in infectious disease. The review supports other data around the world and mounting evidence that vaccine effectiveness is unproven, unjustified and lacking evidence-based medicine. The report was authored by the Department of Pediatric Rehabilitation of the Medical University of Bialystok, Poland and published in Progress in Health Sciences a division of The International Journal of Health Sciences.
There is now mass awareness on the dangers of vaccination and only education into the statistical reality of historical immunization efforts and their failure over the last century can validate the growing controversy regarding vaccine effectiveness. 

A brilliant report in 1977 by McKinlay JB and McKinlay SM questioned"the contribution of medical measures to the decline of mortality in the United States in the twentieth century" Mem Fund Q Health Soc. 1977 Summer; 55(3): 405-28.

Two centuries of UK, USA and Australian official death statisticshave shown conclusively and scientifically that modern medicine is not responsible for and played little part in substantially improved life expectancy and survival from disease in western economies. 

Historically, vaccines have not been viewed as inherently toxic by the regulatory agencies. The resulting lack of evidence of causality between vaccinations and serious adverse outcomes has thus been filled with an assumption that vaccines are safe.

Based on statistics from the Federal Statistics Office in Wiesbaden, Buchwald published a paper containing long-term observations of morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases. The following charts present the collected data indicating the year of introduction of the vaccines.

It is interesting that in recent decades a decrease of infectious diseases was generally reported, which took place before the introduction of inoculations against these diseases.

According to a 2002 report from Lancet Infectious Diseases--the weight of evidence collectively suggests that personal and environmental hygiene reduces the spread of infection and--Thus results from this review demonstrate that there is a continued, measurable, positive effect of personal and community hygiene on infectious. The same report showed that the crude death rate from infectious diseases decreased to nearly
negligible levels long before introduction of universal vaccination practices
