Tetyana Obukhanych is an immunologist — a doctor that specializes in the immune system. Age of Autism posted a letter Dr. Obukhamych wrote to Thinking Moms Revolution and it slams all the false claims by the CDC and other *cough* professionals that parents whom object to vaccinating their children are going to make everyone else’s children sick.
It is often stated that vaccination rarely leads to serious adverse events. Unfortunately, this statement is not supported by science. A recent study done in Ontario, Canada, established that vaccination actually leads to an emergency room visit for 1 in 168 children following their 12-month vaccination appointment and for 1 in 730 children following their 18-month vaccination appointment (see appendix for a scientific study, Item #5).
When the risk of an adverse event requiring an ER visit after well-baby vaccinations is demonstrably so high, vaccination must remain a choice for parents, who may understandably be unwilling to assume this immediate risk in order to protect their children from diseases that are generally considered mild or that their children may never be exposed to.
My four-month-old daughter ended up in the hospital with pneumonia within a month after beginning DPT vaccinations. I am now leaning towards that being a vaccine reaction. If the public doesn’t know to look for something like this as a reaction, then it is easy not to connect the dots. Parents such as myself are not given the information that these are possible reactions to vaccines, therefore, they are unaware that others have suffered terribly from vaccine reactions.
And my other daughter also had inflammation in her lungs with pneumonitis. She was not hospitalized, but was very ill — crying and wanting to be held all the time.
According to this, pneumonitis is associated with measles and mercury. She did not have measles, but an MMR….which contained mercury.
The majority of measles cases in recent US outbreaks (including the recent Disneyland outbreak) are adults and very young babies, whereas in the pre-vaccination era, measles occurred mainly between the ages 1 and 15. Natural exposure to measles was followed by lifelong immunity from re-infection, whereas vaccine immunity wanes over time, leaving adults unprotected by their childhood shots. Measles is more dangerous for infants and for adults than for school-aged children.
Note the sentence “natural exposure to measles means a lifelong immunity”. and “vaccine immunity wanes over time”….my previous blog touched on this — why have vaccines been touted as giving immunity when they have not? In my mind, immunity is a body’s ability to fight off a disease for the life of the individual. And I’m not sold that vaccines actually do give immunity even in the short term…because the absence of disease does not mean the vaccine worked. Like I said before, a person can go without getting the flu vaccine and not get the flu…just as a person who gets the vaccine can go without getting the flu. Or, as in the case of my BIL, one can actually get the flu from the vaccine and land in bed for a week.
And there have been questions by the medical community on antibodies role in immunity. They have said that antibodies are the disease fighters. If the antibodies are there after vaccination, but the immunity is not permanent…then the antibodies are not the entire picture. The antibodies alone are not the sole factor in immunity, the way that I see it.
Despite high chances of exposure in the pre-vaccination era, measles practically never happened in babies much younger than one year of age due to the robust maternal immunity transfer mechanism.
This is really a red flag that vaccines actually cause harm. If the actual disease gives lifelong immunity, that immunity is transferred to babies via their mothers having the actual disease. Now that we have a generation of mothers whom did not get the actual disease, such as measles, they did not transfer that immunity to their children.
My mother having chickenpox disease saved me. As an infant of six months, I was really vulnerable and could have easily succumbed. This is really important to understand for those who say that vaccinations are the cure-all.
On the Age of Autism website, Barry, a commenter posted a link to this. Incredibly, SV40, Simian monkey virus 40, was the cause of brain tumors. Merck and Co., knew this back in 1962, when Dr. Eddy published findings after she had injected the SV40 into hamsters and they developed tumors. If this doesn’t warrant in investigation into the vaccine industry, I don’t know what does!! And I don’t mean an investigation where the criminals are given a slap on the wrist and go back to business as usual. I’m talking Billions in fines, that actually take away their profits, then are given to families of the dead and injured, and putting the criminals in jail that are responsible for lying about vaccine safety and those forcing children and adults to be vaccinated. Good God.
Who would have thought that the term “conscientious objector” would now, in 2015, be associated with forced vaccinations?? And the folks standing up against the vaccine Gestapo are no less courageous then those standing up against war.
