The MMR is one of the most controversial vaccines due to claims that
it causes autism. While Merck, the MMR II manufacturer, does not list
autism as one of the possible side effects of this vaccine, it does list
many other serious, adverse reactions. This list includes meningitis,
encephalitis, pancreatitis, diabetes, decreased blood platelets,
convulsions, seizures, arthritis, bronchial spasm (asthmatic reaction),
pneumonia, anaphylactic shock and death. The list also includes many
severe illnesses/reactions that are not commonly recognized or
understood by the general public. These include:
Pneumonitis – inflammation of the lungs
Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) – a severe, life-threatening disease
in which the body attacks the nervous system causing paralysis.
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) – a rare, fatal neurological disease
Encephalopathy – abnormal brain function that may denote structural damage
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)- a post infection or
post vaccine inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous
system. (Attacks brain tissues and nerves).
Transverse myelitis – an inflammatory disease of the spinal cord
that causes weakness and loss of sensation and it affects the autonomic
nervous system (breathing, the heart, digestion, reflexes).
Ataxia – lack of control of muscles suggesting brain and nerve damage.
Polyneuritis – weakness, numbness and pain – nerve damage
Polyneuropathy – damage to nerves causing tingling and pain that may
begin in the hands and feet and spread to other parts of the body and
may affect the autonomic nervous system
Ocular palsies – Damage to the nerves of the eye affecting eye
movements, pupil constriction, and eyelid movement often resulting in an
inability to focus without double vision.
Panniculitis – inflammation of the fat layer and connective tissue just under the skin
Stevens-Johnson syndrome – following a painful rash, the top layer of skin blisters, dies, and sheds.
Erythema multiforme – skin reaction similar to Stevens-Johnson syndrome.
Nerve deafness – hearing loss and dysfunction.
Retinitis – damage to the retina causing damage to vision.
Optic neuritis – inflammation of the optic nerve, which can cause temporary blindness.
Papillitis – Inflammation of the optic nerve head
Epididymitis – Inflammation of the tube at the back of the testicle.
Of course, less serious reactions also occur including fever,
vomiting, swollen glands, diarrhea, rashes, pain and swelling of the
injection site, and contracting measles, mumps, or rubella from the
vaccine. The question we need to ask ourselves before deciding to
swallow, apply, inhale, or inject any pharmaceutical is whether the
benefits outweigh the risks. We are repeatedly told that vaccines are
safe and effective. As the listed adverse reactions confirm, the MMR
vaccine is not safe for everyone. The vaccine manufacturer freely admits
the vaccine may cause one or more serious, lifelong, debilitating
conditions or even cause death. Their stance is two-fold: they claim the
benefits outweigh the risks and that it is our civic duty to take that
risk to protect others.
WI-38 fibroblasts are derived from the lung tissues of a female aborted fetus. The abortion took place in 1964. 1415
MRC-5 cells are cell lines that are commonly used in vaccines, but
they are also used in other medical research. The cells are grown in
culture, and then distributed widely. J.P. Jacobs originated this cell
line in September of 1966. The cells were taken from the healthy lung
tissue of an aborted 14 week fetus.14
Recombinant Human Albumin
The MMR vaccine contains genetically engineered human albumin, the
most common protein found in blood. The FDA warns that all drugs
containing human albumin could have the possibility of prion or viral
disease contamination. 18
The MMR vaccine includes ingredients derived from poultry and cows.
The measles and mumps viruses are cultivated in cultures of chick
embryonic cells while the growth medium for all three viruses contains
fetal bovine serum
