• Study: Whooping Cough Resurgence Due to Vaccinated People Not Knowing They’re Infectious

    Whooping cough has made an astonishing comeback, with 2012 seeing nearly 50,000 infections in the U.S. (the most since 1955), and a death rate in infants three times that of the rest of the population. The dramatic resurgence has puzzled public health officials. A new study published in BMC Medicine by Santa Fe Institute Omidyar Fellows Ben Althouse and Sam Scarpino reveals the source of the outbreak -- vaccinated people who are infectious but who do not display the symptoms of whooping cough, suggesting that the number of people transmitting without symptoms may be many times greater than those transmitting with symptoms. Althouse and Scarpino used whopping cough case counts from the CDC, genomic data on the pertussis bacteria, and a detailed epidemiological model of whooping cough transmission to conclude that acellular vaccines may well have contributed to -- even exacerbated -- the recent pertussis outbreak by allowing infected individuals without symptoms to unknowingly spread pertussis multiple times in their lifetimes. "There could be millions of people out there with just a minor cough or no cough spreading this potentially fatal disease without knowing it," said Althouse. "The public health community should act now to better assess the true burden of pertussis infection." Will public health officials heed Dr. Althouse's advice, or will they instead ignore the research and continue blaming whooping cough outbreaks on unvaccinated children, while continuing to push laws to force children to receive this failed, dangerous vaccine?

  • Study: Whooping Cough Resurgence Due to Vaccinated People Not Knowing They’re Infectious

    Well said, best report so far. I worked in pathology in albany, Western Australia, a town of 45,000 people, during the first whooping cough epidemics. I am well educated, and research, but I also trust my own observations, and these observations at the time, were backed up by further investigations into these new epidemics of whooping cough, by the Australian Public Health Department, local doctors, and other countries, with very high vaccination rates, also being puzzled by the outbreaks. TRUTH: The whole cell vaccine, pre mid 90s worked, no one in Albany, who had had the old vaccine, contracted whooping cough. Every pertussis victim was 1. FULLY VACCINATED 2. AGED 5-12 YEARS OLD 3. HAD BEEN SPREADING THE ILLNESS FOR 8-12 WEEKS BEFORE BEING TESTED. Yes we have very bright local doctors in Albany, they ditched convention, and actually tested these kids for pertussis, despite them all being fully vaccinated. Further testing, found that kids, who were still vaccine immune to pertussis, were actually carrying the virus in their throats, for 8-12 weeks, without falling ill. Like typhoid mary, never caught the illness, just spread it.l More statistics and research showed: At full vaccination with the failed acelular (still in use), pertussis vaccine, only 8 out of 10 were actually immune to pertussis At 5 years, post full vaccination, only 3 out of 10 were still vaccine immune to pertussis. At 10 years post vaccination NONE WERE VACCINE IMMUNE TO PERTUSSIS. So here it was, those with vaccine immunity still, were carriers, with no symptoms. When the vaccine failed, all were at risk of catching pertussis. They did catch pertussis, but as this is a milder disease in this age of children, without the whoop, they all assumed they had a virus, or the flu, and kept going to school, out and about, for 8 weeks or more before being tested. So many kids had it, Health Department didnt count any more, and besides............ they had been spreading it everywhere in a small community for 45,000 for weeks, which spread into months. No one older than 20 caught the illness. Luckily no babies died. Next horror discovery? Young women, now who had this vaccine, were having babies. The discovery was that the vaccine (fke immunity),. does not transfer (like real immunity) to the neonates, through maternal antibodies, not through breastmilk. So the rise in baby deaths? There is no unvaccinated monster, lurking in the corridors of the maternity hospitals. The truth is anyone, that was vaccinated, post 95 ie siblings, the father, the mother, with absolutely no symptoms, were infecting these tiny babies. The mother was not passing on the normal antibodies, in breastmilk, etc, to protect her baby. YES SHE COULD INFECT HER BABY, BUT HER BODY COULD NOT PROTECT HER BABY. Thus the rise in baby deaths. Even news reports, now in 2015, 5 years after these discoveries, say, all the victims were fully vaccinated, but health department recommends to keep up to date with vaccinations? If it dont work, jabbing, and jabbing, with the same failed vaccine, is not going to suddenly make the outcome different. Three years after the truth was known of the failed pertussis vaccine, USA was being pressured to investigate. Babies were dying, one would think this would be urgent? No, three years later the FDA scraped up some obscure funding, and did the infamous babboon study. They ignored all the real case reports, the overseas research, the proof, instead buying 8 baboons, and testing the acellular (failed vaccine), against the old vaccine the whole cell vaccine (pre 1990s).... why test an old vaccine, that was banned 20 years ago? Perhaps to muddy the results. Results were the same. Knee jerk reaction, with absolutely no scientific basis? Coccooning theory, re vaccinated everyone around a newborn, including the pregnant mothers. Yes, in some absurd way, hoping if you re jab enough times, it might work. Outcome? More babies got sick, they found that those most recently vaccinated, actually were MORE LIKELY TO BE CARRIERS OF THE ILLNESS, WITH NO SYMPTOMS. Heres the baboon study, the capitals are mine, to explain in plain English what the FDA, have somehow managed to hide, for yet another two years. http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm376937.htm A new study is helping to provide a better understanding of vaccines for whooping cough, the common name for the disease pertussis. Based on an animal model, the study conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and published November 25, 2013, in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, THE VACCINATED SPREAD THE DISEASE CALLED WHOOPING COUGH, TO ANYONE, INCLUDING THOSE VACCINATED.. Whooping cough rates in the United States have been increasing since the 1980s and reached a 50-year high in 2012. DESPITE MASS VACCINATION. Whooping cough is a contagious respiratory disease caused by Bordetella pertussis bacteria. Initial symptoms include runny nose, sneezing, and a mild cough, which may seem like a typical cold. Usually, the cough slowly becomes more severe, and eventually the patient may experience bouts of rapid, violent coughing followed by the “whooping” sound that gives the disease its common name, when trying to take a breath. Whooping cough can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening complications, permanent disability, and even death, especially in infants and young children. BUT AS THE VACCINE REDUCES THE SEVERITY OF THE INNESS, THOSE VACCINATED, WITH PERTUSSIS, DO NOT HAVE THE CHARACTERISTIC WHOOP, ALTHOUGH STILL SPREADING THE DISEASE, TO EVERYONE, VACCINATED OR NOT. THOSE VACCINATED, WHO HAVE NO SYMPTOMS ALSO SPREAD THE DISEASE. There are two types of pertussis vaccines, whole-cell and acellular. Whole-cell pertussis vaccines contain a whole-cell preparation, which means they contain killed, but complete, B. pertussis bacteria. THIS VACCINE WAS DANGEROUS, AND NO LONGER USED ANYWHERE………The acellular pertussis vaccine is more purified NOT MORE PURIFIED, IS BASICALLY MORE EXPERIMENTAL, LIKE ANY GMO and uses only selected portions of the pertussis bacteria to stimulate an immune response in an individual. In response to concerns about the side effects of the whole cell pertussis vaccine, acellular vaccines were developed and replaced the use of whole-cell pertussis vaccines in the U.S. and other countries in the 1990s; however, whole-cell pertussis vaccines are still used in many other countries. THE VACCINE PRE 1990S WORKED BUT IS NOW CONSIDERED TOO DANGEROUS TO USE. I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS USED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, SO WHY ARE THEY TESTING IT? WHAT A WASTE OF BABOONS. “This study is critically important to understanding some of the reasons for the rising rates of pertussis and informing potential strategies to address this public health concern,” said Karen Midthun, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, where the study was conducted. “This research is a valuable contribution and brings us one step closer to understanding the problem. We are optimistic that more research on pertussis will lead to the identification of new and improved methods for preventing the disease.” HOW ABOUT NOT USING THE VACCINE, THAT IS BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION, IS ACTUALLY SPREADING THE DISEASE. FULLY VACCINATED, WITHOUT SYMPTOMS, SPREAD IT TO EVERYONE, INCLUDING INFANTS, WHO ARE NEWBORN, AND THE MOST VULNERABLE. THIS IS THE REASON FOR PERTUSSIS VACCINATIONS, APPARENTLY TO PROTECT BABIES, NOW BABIES ARE BEING INFECTED, UNWITTINGLY BY THEIR OWN MOTHERS. While the reasons for the increase in cases of whooping cough are not fully understood, INSERT ARE FULLY UNDERSTOOD multiple factors are likely involved, including diminished immunity from childhood pertussis vaccines, AT FULL VACCINATION, 8 OUT OF 10 ARE IMMUNE, AFTER 5 YEARS 3 OUT OF TEN ARE IMMUNE, AFTER 10 YEARS NONE ARE IMMUNE STATISTICALLY 20% FAILURE AT VACCINATION FALLS RAPILY TO 70% FAILURE RATE IN 5 YEARS, 100% FALURE WITHIN 10 YEARS... ALTHOUGH DURING THIS TIME, THEY CAN AND DO SPREAD PERTUSSIS, WITHOUT SYMPTOMS………. improved diagnostic testing, and increased reporting. YES TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS ONE, INCREASED REPORTING, MORE THAN FOUR WESTERN NATIONS REPORTED THE FAILURE OF THIS VACCINE BY 2010…100,.000 REAL REPORTS, REAL KIDS, ALL SHOWING COMPLETE FAILURE OF THE VACCINE. INSTEAD OF PROTECTING INFANTS, THOSE WITHOUT SYMTOMS, FULLY VACCINATED, CAN AND DO INFECT EVERYONE.With its own funds plus support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the FDA conducted the study to explore the possibility that acellular pertussis vaccines, while protecting against disease, might not prevent infection. WITH THEIR OWN FUNDS, THEY BOUGHT SOME BABOONS, DESPITE BEING GIVEN FULL RELIABLE TESTING, RESEARCH REPORTS, AND INFORMATION FROM HEALTH DEPARTMENTS FROM OVER 4 WESTERN NATIONS IN 2010, INVOLVING OVER 100,000 REAL PEOPLE, REAL CHILDREN…….. AND ALSO RESEARCH SHOWING THOSE FULLY VACCINATED MOTHERS, DO NOT TRANSFER THE VACCINE IMMUNITY TO THEIR INFANTS, WHILE STILL BEING ABLE TO INFECT THEIR OWN INFANTS UNKNOWINGLY. “There were 48,000 cases reported last year despite high rates of vaccination,” said Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “This resurgence suggests a need for research into the causes behind the increase in infections and improved ways to prevent the disease from spreading.” EASY, STOP VACCINATING? UNTIL YOU FIND A BETTER VACCINE, SO THEY NOW JUST JAB, JAB, JAB AGAIN WITH A FAILED VACCINE….. ONLY A FOOL KEEPS TRYING THE SAME THING, EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT. THEN THEY RECOMMENDED COCOONING, WHICH MEANS REVACCINATING EVERYON LIKELY TO BE AROUND A NEWBORN, INCLUDING PREGNANT WOMEN……WITH YES, THE SAME FAILED VACCINE, BUT NO LONGER IN A VACCINE MIX. THIS COCOONING HAS NOW BEEN FOUND TO BE A FAILURE IN AUSTRALIAN RESEARCH, IT HAS BEEN FOUND THOSE NEWLY VACCINATED, ARE MORE LIKELY TO SPREAD THE DISEASE. The FDA conducted the study in baboons, an animal model that closely reproduces the way whooping cough affects people. DESPITE BEGIN GIVEN FULL INFORMATION, FROM AT LEAST FOUR WESTERN NATIONS, WITH REAL TESTING RESULTS, FROM REAL PEOPLE, MORE THAN 100,000 RESULTS FROM REAL PEOPLE, ALL VACCINE FAILURES. The scientists vaccinated two groups of baboons – one group with a whole-cell pertussis vaccine THE ONE THAT WORKED, PRE 1990, THE ONE THAT HAS NOT BEEN USED SINCE THE MID 1990S, ONE HAS TO ASK WHY TEST A VACCINE NO LONGER USED? and the other group with an acellular pertussis vaccine currently used in the U. S. INTRODUCED BY MERCK, THE COMPANY WHO JUST GOT FINED 3 BILLION FOR FRAUD, IN THEIR OTHER VACCINE TRIALS……The animals were vaccinated at ages two, four, and six months, simulating the infant immunization schedule. NOTICE THEY DID NOT VACCINATE PREGNANT FEMALE BABOONS, TO SEE IF THEY INFECTED THEIR INFANTS? WHY NOT? PERHAPS THEY DID NOT WANT TO PROVE THIS……. FDA WAS GIVEN THIS INFORMATION IN 2010. The results of the FDA study found that both types of vaccines generated robust antibody responses in the animals, and none of the vaccinated animals developed outward signs of pertussis disease after being exposed to B. pertussis. However, there were differences in other aspects of the immune response. Animals that received an acellular pertussis vaccine THE VACCINE USED SINCE MID 1990S NOW A PROVEN FAILURE had the bacteria in their airways for up to six weeks and were able to spread the infection to unvaccinated animals. YES FULLY VACCINATED, SPREAD THE INFECTION TO UNVACCINATED ANIMALS THEY DID NOT ATTEMPT TO SEE IF THEY SPREAD IT TO VACCINATED ANIMALS, AGAIN JUST AN OVERSIGHT IN THE TESTING? WELL PROVEN ALREADY IN HUMAN TRIALS…..AND PROVEN IN THE PERTUSSIS OUTBREAKS, THE VACCINATED, WITH NO SYMPTOMS, SPREAD THE DISEASE. In contrast, animals that received whole-cell vaccine cleared the bacteria within three weeks. YES THE OLD VACCINE PRE 1990S ACTUALLY WORKED BETTER, BUT WHY TEST IT IF IT HASN’T BEEN USED FOR 25 DAMN YEARS, BECAUSE IT IS DANGEROUS? WASTE OF BABOONS?. This research suggests that although individuals immunized with an acellular pertussis vaccine YES THE ONE USED SINCE 1990S AND STILL USED, ACCORDING TO THE AUSTRALIAN IMMUNISATION SCHECULE may be protected from disease, they may still become infected with the bacteria without always getting sick and are able to spread infection to others, including young infants who are susceptible to pertussis disease. PRETTY SELF EXPLANATORY? YES =FULLY VACCINATED, NO SYMTOMS CARRY IT AND SPREAD IT, FULLY VACCINATED DO GET PERTUSSIS, WITH SYMPTOMS, ALSO, BUT THE SYMPTOMS DO NOT SHOW THE CHARACTERISTIC WHOOP, SO GO TO SCHOOL, ON AVERAGE FOR 8 WEEKS, WITHOUT REALISING THEY HAVE PERTUSSIS, AT THIS STAGE THEY GO TO PATHOLOGY, AND GET TESTED, AND YES, THEY ALL HAVE PERTUSSIS……………. WESTERN AUSTRALIA, OUTBREAK 2010………IN ONE TOWN OF 45,000, DIDN’T BOTHER ISOLATING ANYONE………. WITH 300 TESTING POSITIVE, AND THOSE WITHOUT SYMPTOMS TESTING POSITIVE, AND ALL BEEN OUT AND ABOUT FOR 8 WEEKS, WHAT WAS THE POINT? LUCKILY NO BABIES DIED, GUARANTEE EVERYONE IN THIS TOWN, IS NOW FULLY IMMUNE TO PERTUSSIS., ALSO INTERESTING, NO ONE OVER 20 GOT PERTUSSIS………. THE OLD VACCINE WORKED.

Whooping cough rates have been used to push the need for mandatory vaccines in Australia but in actual fact the incidence of whooping cough has been increasing with the increase in vaccination rates. In 1991 less than 71% of Australian children were fully vaccinated yet there were only 347 cases, whilst in 2011 with over 90% vaccination rates there were over 38000. From 2013 to 2015 there was a 54% increase in cases., yet vaccination rates across the country remain high. the immorality of this, is astounding, baby deaths I now call Merck Murder.

Absolutely, he let slip........ it was known since 2010, that the vaccine, actually is a failure. It works for an average span of 3 years. The herd immunity is a myth. Worse than this, those still with vaccine immunity (the longest it lasts is 10 years)... actually carry the disease in their throats, and spread it, without getting ill themselves. Yes, every time whooping cough goes around, that person, carries that virus, without getting ill for 8-12 weeks. Thus the absudity of banning kids from school unless vaccinated. The vaccinated ones, with no symptoms, are spreading the disease, When their own immunity fails, which it does, they get pertussis themselves. In 2010, when this was discovered, worldwide (except for the usa , for some reason?).....FDA, CDC, ignored it for 3 years, then did the infamous baboon study, trying to muddy the results. Despite the urgency, yes babies were dyiing, they waited three years, scraped up some obscure funding (FDA), and purchased 8 baboons... They ignored all the case studies, the worldwide reports, the statistics, thousands if not millions of reports, all ignored. But the world was watching, they could not outright lie in their baboon test. They purposely never tested the baboon mothers inabillity to pass on vaccine antibodies to her offspring, purposely never tested if mother baboon, with no illness actually passed the illness to her own baby, thus killing her own baby. It is obvious why they didnt, because the facts are, this is indeed the case, mothers vaccinated with the new acellular vaccine, actually can pass the illness to their infants, and are unable to pass on antibodies to their infants, to stop the illness.......... unheard of in the real world of real immunity to disease. I work in pathology, other vaccines that do not work: Measles vaccine, the vaccine, is a part vaccine, and it "sheds""... it sheds from the newly vaccinated person, for as long as the normal measles happens, to other vaccinated people.... it is called atypical measles, as it is a different, ie vaccine caused strain of mealses. It is also twice as dangerous and deadly as the old measles. Canada has proven in three instances, that a measles outbreak was caused by a vaccinated person, shedding the vaccine strain. They traced the epidemic back, yes vaccinated, spreading to other vaccinated. Often the vaccinated, do indeed get measles, but as the vaccine manufacturers do rightly claim, it reduces the severity of the illness, this actually means if translated into English, that those vaccinated, do get measles, but they dont know, as they dont get the spots. A lady in USA, died in a hospital of measles, they did not know, till the autopsy, trying to find the source of the measles infection in their hospital.... she had no spots. As for the Disneyland epidemic, how many werent counted, as they only counted the infected if they had spots. And if you actually look at the CDC statistics, those unvaccinated, exposed, showed a 95-98% natural immunity to the illness.................. yes, more of the vaccinated, caught measles, than those unvaccinated. Look at the statistics. As for chicken pox vaccinations. There is a corresponding rise in the instance of disabling shingles, with the rise in the vaccinated. Why vaccinate for an illness, that is not serious? The apparent reason for vaccinating against this, was so women didnt have to stay home, and could go to work.... how absurd, a reason. Gardasil vaccine, I think is the eye opener, suddenly the lies and fraud is being exposed. Out of 100 girls vaccinated with Gardasil, 1 will either die, or be chronically disabled. The vaccine was tested in India, on illiterate peasant girls, who were staying at a boarding school. There was no genuine signed consent forms, and parents and children were not told they were part of an experiment. So many girsl were disabled, and died, all hidden. The ones that died, had things written like, suicide, or fell down a well........... Anyway, India are now suing. The saddest thing, is the results of this illegal trial, (life is cheap in India), was that the actual trial results came back, no side effects, wonderful vaccine. From this, countries made this vaccine mandatory, so many girls are now so ill. Many went into menopause before age 20. Watch some you tube videos, you will be shocked. The inventor of the gardasil vaccine, is horrified, as she says herself, for all this damage, the vaccine has never ever been proven to last more than 10 years..... ie it wears off before the girls catch hpv anyway. Also, if the girls already had hpv, the vaccine, doubles the chances of cervical cancer, and yes many kids have naturally had hpv and cleared it anyway. Also the vaccine works on either 2 or 4 strains of hpv, there are about 80 strains..... Vaccination stops one, then allows another to proliferate Polio live vaccine (oral vaccine) is banned in USA, as it spreads live polio. However the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, uses this vaccine in countries, where there is no live polio............... In Ukraine, and Europe, no polio for over 4 years, so in Ukraine, they started polio up, from the live oral vaccine. One man in UK, given the oral polio vaccine in UK, when young, never eliminated it from his digestive system, he was found to be spreading polio from the vaccine, 40 years later! Their vaccine program in India, has now caused 40,000 dead and disabled children, from vaccine polio......... Yes, they can trace the different strains now, and the results are not looking good for Merck, GSK and all the others. One thing to note, is every big pharma company has been fined for fraud, all of them within the last three years. GSK got fined 3 billion, for fraud, over a drug that killed thousands of kids, called Paxil........... but they didnt care, as their fraud has already made the company over 14 billion in profits. CRIME DOES PAY, IF YOU ARE A PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY.
  • Study: Whooping Cough Resurgence Due to Vaccinated People Not Knowing They’re Infectious

    Mid 2014 I saw an immunologist [Professor] regarding my vaccine injury. Unfortunately he turned out to be one of the pro extremists, shrieking at me "that is irrelevant" when asking me what I thought was the cause of my conditions. After actually listening and investigating the facts further, he reluctantly conceded that the vaccine was probably the cause. What was interesting was his description of the pertussis component. Quote "it doesn't work...it hasn't worked for years." unquote. This seems to be supported by the outbreak we had here in 2012 where large numbers of those infected had been vaccinated. No reasonable person would expect these vaccines to last indefinitely, yet this whooping cough vaccine is pushed hard by medicos and the government. Why? Why not warn people that the effectiveness is now in question so they can implement their own secondary precautions instead of falsely believing they are protected? This also invites the question: What other vaccines are no longer effective??
  • Study: Whooping Cough Resurgence Due to Vaccinated People Not Knowing They’re Infectious

    Well, I guess every new study, report, etc. on the failure of pertussis vaccine is a step forward...but really, the fact of pertussis vaccine failure is "old news". The FDA research showing that acellular pertussis vaccine doesn't prevent colonization and transmission of pertussis in baboons was reported in 2012, and in 2013 the CDC was discussing the research that showed the new PRN-negative strains of pertussis (now dominant in the U.S.) infect people vaccinated with acellular pertussis vaccine (and up-to-date on booster) more successfully than they infect unvaccinated people. I was at the California State Capitol yesterday to watch the Assembly "debate" and vote on SB277, the bill that would eliminate "personal belief exemptions" to vaccination for day care, preschool, and K-12 schools (both public and private). I had, a couple of weeks ago, sent my own Assemblyman hard copies of FDA and CDC documents on pertussis vaccine failure along with a couple of other scientific documents containing damning evidence against the SB277-mandated vaccines. My assemblyman is a dentist, so he should have been able to comprehend the science. The man had the gall to stand up in the Assembly and say "At the end of the day, vaccines are safe and effective." Willful ignorance and refusal to confront important issues re: this bill -- that's what every proponent displayed in that debate and vote. It was sickening. All these vaccine mandate bills serve NO ONE except the vaccine manufacturers and their cronies in the CDC, and the AMA and its state counterparts. Unfortunately, the vaccine manufacturers and their medical establishment buddies have huge amounts of money available to buy legislators. The principal "author" of SB277, pediatrician Richard Pan, got $95,000 in campaign contributions from pharmaceutical companies in the year or so before he introduced SB277 in the California legislature. Our legislatures have been bought, pure and simple.
