I only partially agree with Joshua Nerius’ complaint about his mom not vaccinating him as a child: “The science on this has been settled. It’s been solved. When I look at where we are today, with people who are willfully deciding to ignore the facts, it really frustrates me,” Nerius said. “I just don’t understand the mindset of people who want to spread fear.” (Source)
Well, Joshua, hate to say you’re wrong, but you’re wrong. The science on this is NOT settled. In fact, the primary reason vaccines are dumped en masse into children’s bodies is because of fear — the fear held by medical practitioners that they won’t get another chance to stick ’em and charge for it at a later date. In some cases it might actually be fear that children will not receive all the vaccinations the medical practitioners feel they require, so they feel it’s better to stick ’em all at once than miss a window of opportunity.
The facts i.e. science itself says they’re wrong. By vaccinating children too early, as well as with too many vaccines lumped together, they’re causing more harm than good. It’s that fear that causes so many problems with people’s immune systems in modern times, problems we rarely saw even 100 years ago.
Let’s examine the facts i.e. science itself with respect to the Measles vaccine. The following quotes are from Wikipedia’s entry on Measles, and the specific sources are listed at the bottom.
Without the Vaccine: “Most people survive measles, though in some cases, complications may occur. Possible consequences of measles virus infection include bronchitis, sensorineural hearing loss, and—in about 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 300,000 cases—panencephalitis, which is usually fatal.”
With the vaccine: “The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report minor side effects from the MMR-V and MMR vaccines to include low-grade fever, injection site redness or rash, pain at the injection site, and facial swelling. Moderate side effects include a full body rash, temporary low platelet count, temporary stiffness and pain the joints and seizures, and seizures. 1 2 MMR-V, however, has been noted to have a higher risk of seizures than separate administrations of MMR and varicella vaccines, especially when given as the first dose of the series.3 Rare serious side effects of both MMR-V and MMR include brain damage, coma, chronic seizure disorder, lowered level of consciousness and loss of hearing.”
Addendum: “As of November 30, 2018, there have been more than 93,179 reports of measles vaccine reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following measles vaccinations made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), including 459 related deaths, 6,936 hospitalizations, and 1,748 related disabilities. Over 50% of those adverse events occurred in children three years old and under.”
And: “Measles as an endemic disease was eliminated from the United States in 2000, but continues to be reintroduced by international travelers.”
IN LIGHT OF THE ABOVE:
- NEVER use MMR-V, as the probability of adverse reactions is double that of separating the MMR and varicella vaccines.
- STRONGLY consider delaying vaccinations until the baby’s immune system has matured (about 8 months), especially if they’re being breast-fed.
- STRONGLY consider breaking down all combined vaccinations into single vaccinations.
- STRONGLY consider allowing a full 90 days between each individual vaccination. This gives the child’s immune system time to fully process the foreign introduction and settle down back into a normal routine before exposing it to the next vaccination.
- STRONGLY consider reassessing whether some vaccines are even necessary. Reexamine rates of infection and complication of the disease as compared to rates of complication due to the vaccine.
- STRONGLY consider focusing on how to build strong immune systems naturally, through proper diet and exercise while avoiding most processed foods which tend to sap the immune system.
But as for never obtaining any vaccinations at all, well, that wasn’t very smart!
Having said that, sticking kids with half a dozens vaccines when they’re infants is blitheringly idiotic i.e. STUPID.
In summary, should children be vaccinated for measles? Absolutely, but NOT before 8 months of age and never in conjunction with other vaccines. Given everything we know about the disease, the vaccination, and the tremendous rise in auto-immune diseases, that’s also mind-bogglingly STUPID.
Nerius said, “I just don’t understand the mindset of people who want to spread fear.”
What, exactly, are you and the Demoncrap news organizations spreading by taking this very unscientific approach, if not fear? In fact, fear is precisely what you’re spreading. You’re trying to use to fear to incite parents to throw science to the wind and “just stick ’em.”
That is absolutely no better than the anti-vaxxers. They are, at least, not swallowing the “just stick ’em” bait hook, line, and sinker. Thank God they’re questioning the status quo, which has a LOT to answer for with respect to the auto-immune pandemic.
