Thanks, Pharma. You created the “anti-vaccine movement”.

I love that when a nonsense article floats around on facebook, everyone who knows me, sends it to me. This newest article was sent to me about a dozen times today. I’m out of town for work and said “Nope, not refuting it. No time”. But here I am, with a few hours to spare in my hotel room, and what am I doing….refuting the article. Haha!

I’ve been researching the measles vaccine for 8 years now and have written many posts on this subject.

So here we go…..again.

I have to remind myself that my passion and heart is truly to educate and empower other mothers. So if you are a non vaccinating mother and read the silly Daily Beast article titled “Thanks, Anti-Vaxxers. You Just Brought Back Measles in NYC”, and that article made you question your decision, or you were to made to feel like you needed to defend yourself and your decision to friends or family, this post is for you!

Baby-Vaccines-175058_L

The article begins with: “There is currently an outbreak of measles in New York City.  Considered eliminated in the United States in 2000, last year saw a record number of outbreaks around the country”. (I kept the two original links within these sentences for references)

Let’s break this down.

Right away, the original article links to other articles.  I always click on the links within the original article, because that is where the real information can be found. The original article is always an opinion piece with no research or statistics. So I always leave the original article to get to root of what is being said. I look for statistics. Research. Science. Logic.

The first linked article is titled: “New measles cases confirmed in New York City”.

Are you ready for what comes next?

First sentence: “New York City health officials have identified 3 more cases of measles”

“Five hospitalizations have occurred as a result of this outbreak”

“At least two cases were transmitted right in a doctor’s office, officials said”

Say what? 3 WHOLE CASES? 5 hospitalizations? And 2 cases were transmitted right in a doctors office?

And this is what we call an outbreak? And we blame the unvaccinated? I honestly wonder how an “outbreak” such as this can warrant an article titled:  “Thanks, Anti-Vaxxers. You Just Brought Back Measles in NYC”. Is it just me, or have we completely lost grasp of what true journalism is?

And 2 cases transmitted right in a doctors office? Wait you mean transmitted through the vaccine? Ha! Seriously though, let’s not forget that the measles vaccine is a live virus vaccine that can live in saliva and feces, so yes those recently vaccinated are carriers. Vaccine shedding anyone?

I love how the original article (like I said which is always an opinion piece) says: “Measles was considered eliminated at the turn of the millennium. Now it’s back, thanks to the loons who refuse to vaccinate their children” Really? That’s the science? An article that calls parents loons? How low can we go?

measles-cdc-website

The second link given in the original article, (about how measles was considered eliminated in the United States in 2000, but last year (2013) saw a record number of outbreaks), that link leads you directly to the CDC website which shows the graphic above. I’ve shared this graphic before. There you have it folks, all 159 cases of measles (2013 actually ended with 189 cases).

In 2000 (the year measles was “eliminated” from the US) there were 86 cases. So I guess somehow the difference between the 189 cases in 2013 and 86 cases in 2000, all 103 of those new cases are considered “outbreaks” and are caused by the small percentage of unvaccinated children? Totally logical, right?

Funny though, I went to the CDC website and in the year 2011 there were 222 cases in the US, which is significantly higher than 2013. And did you know that in 2011, we added a third MMR vaccine onto the childhood schedule, and also put it on the adult vaccination program as a regular booster?

Funny how we just can’t seem to eliminate measles within the United States.

stopmeasles

In 1967, during a measles campaign, the CDC said: “Effective use of this vaccine during the coming winter and spring should insure the eradication of measles from the United States in 1967”. The cutesy slogan read “Stop measles with just one shot”.

Well that was 47 years ago. And now a child entering Kindergarten needs 3 shots.

Good ole measles.

I love how the original article states: “Most patients recover after an unpleasant but relatively uneventful period of sickness”. Yep, big bad scary measles. Seriously, how have we let measles become so scary? In a healthy child, the symptoms are nothing more than a common cold.

The article does goes on to say:  “Unfortunately, about one patient in every 1,000 develops inflammation of the brain, and one to three cases per 1000 in the United States result in death”. The truth is, 1 in about 10,000 (not 1,000) may develop inflammation of the brain.

Dr. Mendelsohn: “Doctors maintain that the inoculation is necessary to prevent measles encephalitis, which they say occurs about one in 1,000 cases. After decades of experience with measles, I question this statistic, and so do many other pediatricians. … in middle and upper-income brackets, … incidence of true encephalitis is probably more like 1/10,000 or 1/100,000.”

However 1 in 50 kids with autism suffer from inflammation of the brain and the MMR vaccine package insert for the measles vaccine actually lists inflammation of the brain as a side effect from the vaccine. Go read the package insert. It’s called encephalitis. Caused by the measles vaccine. Not caused by the natural measles virus.

As the article suggests, how do we actually know 1 -3 cases per 1,000 in the United States result in death? We don’t. According to the CDC, deaths occur in populations with high levels of malnutrition and a lack of adequate healthcare. Deaths don’t occur in developed countries. Deaths do not occur in 1 -3 cases per 1,000 in the United States. And in developing countries, “Data shows that one-third to one-half of the millions of deaths in children across the world, caused by measles, are due to undernutrition, not undervaccination”. 

WHERE IS THE LOGIC?

The original article continues with paragraphs such as: “The anti-vaccine crowd may think they’re only making a decision for their own family. In fact, they’re threatening to make the rest of us sick. Refusing to vaccinate your children means you are contributing to a worsening public health crisis. There is no denying it, and there is no point in sugar-coating it”.

HOW ARE UNVACCINATED CHILDREN A THREAT?

“It is preposterous to think that a child who is vaccinated no longer carries the bacteria or the viruses that they have been vaccinated against. If, in fact, children are vaccinated, then why are parents and public health authorities afraid that non-vaccinated children are somehow carrying something that their children are not, when they should feel comfortable that their children are vaccinated? You can’t have it both ways…

You can’t vaccinate believing that your children are protected and then feel that your children are not protected because somehow, some non-vaccinated child is carrying some secret organism that no-one else is carrying. You can’t have it both ways. It just doesn’t make any sense”. -–Dr. Palevsky, board certified pediatrician in New York

vaccineworked (1)

I won’t go through each silly paragraph within the article. My favorite though was: “If you missed measles and are glad it’s back, thank a vaccine-denier”. If you are an adult who survived measles as a child, you now have PERMANENT immunity acquired from contracting the natural measles virus. You cannot and will not ever contract measles again. Who else is this article referring to that would be “missing measles” but the generation that actually contracted it naturally? They aren’t worried.

When these types of articles clearly point the finger at only one people group (in this case the non-vaccinating parent) it is so hard to understand the logic. The article states: “Perhaps vaccine-refusing parents will consider whether it’s worth the anxiety of knowing that a person who coughed in their grocery store two hours earlier could infect their kids as they do the week’s shopping together, and will reconsider their choices”

Scientists believe that measles can be eradicated by vaccinating 80% -100% of the population. Theoretically, such “herd” immunity will interrupt measles transmission and end epidemics. According to the CDC, childhood immunization levels are near or above national targets.

CHILDHOOD immunization levels are near or ABOVE National targets. 

And why the heck is it always the “vaccine-refusing parents”? What about the vaccine-refusing adults? We have an entire generation of baby boomers who haven’t had a booster shot in years. Why don’t we blame them? The blaming is so targeted, it’s hard to take serious. The small percentage of unvaccinated children would or could never be the cause of an outbreak. But then again, it’s almost comical what we call an “outbreak”.

Dear Pharma

I’ll end with the sentence in the article that said: “I hope the anti-vaccine movement somehow loses steam”. Wake up Pharma. Wake the hell up. There is no such thing as an “anti-vaccine movement”. You created it. You got greedy and added 49 vaccines to the childhood schedule before a child starts Kindergarten. You created an entire generation of sick children. We know them as vaccine injured child. Guess what? These children ARE vaccinated. You know, the GREATER GOOD. The parents believed the lie. They did what they were told. The took their kids in for the shots. This movement is called truth. And it will never lose steam. Not until you stop harming and injuring children. This movement is only growing. This movement is just getting it’s steam. Your articles like the one today, they fuel us.

So go find another scare tactic. Your “measles outbreak” scare tactics aren’t fooling anyone.

Thanks, Pharma. You created the “anti-vaccine movement”.

  1. Thank you for a well written article. I have reposted it on my blog marathonsis.wordpress.com. Our son at age 5 developed ITP (severe low platelets) and the doctor at the Children’s Hospital where he was treated pointed me to a study done by the Centre for Disease Control drawing a correlation between the Measles component of the MMR vaccine and ITP. As I traced the development of his symptoms I realized they all presented when he had his very first shots at age 4.9 and 4.10 (I had decided not to vaccinate him as an infant but began his immunizations at age 4 because all his siblings had got through them ok….) He is 19 and still has some residual effects from his blood disorder. I guess if we tell anyone he never got any more measles shots, we would become another scapegoat….

  2. Thank you soooooo much for this. My son was vaccine injured, the doctors ignored us when I told them what was happening. People say it doesn’t happen and that I must be wrong. They don’t KNOW it’s happening because the doctors are ignoring us when we tell them so they aren’t reporting or studying it. I often tell people it’s rare to find a true anti-vax person because most of us aren’t, most of us are pro-SAFER vaccinations. The current vaccinations aren’t just dangerous for so many, they’re down right deadly in some cases so WHY aren’t they trying to improve them instead of defending them saying they’re “good enough”. I can’t stand it when people say “Oh well I vaccinated my kid and he/she is fine” or “My kid has autism and it wasn’t the vaccinations fault”, that’s great, congrats, you’re one of the lucky many who don’t have to live with the guilt that you unintentionally hurt your child. I did the research, I did an alternative vaccination route, I was bullied by the medical “professionals” even tho I was still vaccinating him! I thought I’d take on the risks vaccinating because I was “protecting” my child. I love my son, he’s an amazing kid but he has to try 100x harder to do just about anything. He can’t enjoy the things he wants to the way he deserves to. He wants so badly to have friends but because he can’t read social cues he gets in their space or “copies” them too much and they don’t understand him. They don’t understand why he’s doing what he does, and because of his impaired language abilities they don’t understand what he’s saying either.

    If you happen to have any resources for parent’s of vaccine harmed children I’d love to see them. I’m not nearly as good with words as you are to defend myself and educate others.

      1. Jessica, I know exactly what you mean. I recently had a “friend” (now no longer a friend, obviously) tell me, “I don’t care enough to engage, my kids are just fine,” KNOWING that my kids had had severe reactions to vaccines.

        It sucks when people don’t care.

        If you can, please consider signing your son up for 3 things:

        1) Suzuki violin lessons, where he will be a member of a peer group, as all Suzuki kids get both private lessons and group classes, and it’s FABULOUS for teaching them how to “fit in” musically–which translates to social skills as well. It is very similar to auditory processing therapy–only they come out of it with violin-playing skills. In addition, the it stimulates brain development that affects all kinds of things–math skills, reading skills, listening skills, eye-hand coordination, etc.

        2) theatre classes, which is very similar to speech therapy in that he will learn appropriate dialog, facial expression, vocal expression, body language, AND social cues. In my experience, theatre kids, for some reason, tend to be the most supportive group ever. I think it has to do with the fact that, when they are acting, they are laying their soul out their for everyone to see, and so they bond with each other. Research the theatre classes in your area to see which ones promise the parents that their kids will be stars (you don’t want those) and which ones teach your kids how to act, how to be part of a company, and how to have fun.

        3) martial arts (we did Tae Kwon Do), which will teach your kid coordination, make him part of a group, and as he earns belts, he will feel good about himself, and will earn the respect of others.

        All teachers of the above will either be able to offer your son additional instruction, or point you towards someone (a high school kid, maybe) who can give your kid additional coaching if and when he needs it, so don’t be afraid to ask for it!

        Good luck to you and your son. Hang in there; it gets better.

    My advice to parents is always to do your own research and make the best decision for your family. I chose to stop vaccinating my daughter before age 2 and our almost 2 year old has never been vaccinated. This is because of research I’ve done as a parent.

  9. Sixteen years ago, my family doctor counselled me on vaccines. He said, “Your children won’t be able to be enrolled in public school.” I thought, that’ okay, I’m teaching them at home. Then, he told me he wouldn’t worry too much about my kids getting any unwanted diseases, if they don’t do vaccinations , because everyone around them is vaccinated! So the risk of being around someone who was a carrier was unlikely. (I loved that!) At the time I had seven children. Ages 17-18months and because of the age spread, my two oldest had been fully vaccinated. That was when you only needed four vaccines! It was also, before I knew better!

    Several years later, we were on vacation, my 18 month old started hacking and coughing severely, but only at night. Nothing through the day. Found out that Whooping Cough was being passed through our church. We had four of our children get the whooping cough. (It is a terrible illness!)

    Now, out of seven children, two were fully vaccinated and only one of them came down with the whooping cough. The other five were not vaccinated, and three came down with it. The other two did not. (It is possible that they could have had mild cases and we wouldn’t have known it.)

    I guess I write all this to say, vaccines are not the answer! They won’t keep you from every illness that they purport to prevent.

  16. I am so grateful for this great article. I am a homeopath and naturopath (though not practicing that much these days due to other commitments and passions!). Why did I become a homeopath and naturopath? That is because in 1988, when I was working on my doctorate in music at Northwestern University I was FORCED to have a MMR vaccine. Yes, that’s right. Even though I was 30 years old, because I could not find proof of having this vaccine as a child, I could not register for classes, unless I had this vaccine. Well guess what? I got very sick from this. My whole immune system shut down. I had to stop my doctoral work and never returned. I did develop an interest in holistic medicine however, because it was only through Chinese medicine and homeopathy that I regained my well being enough to start functioning again in moderation. About two years after this happened, I learned about a class action suit against Merck, Sharpe and Doane, the makers of this MMR vaccine. A group of WOMEN DOCTORS AND NURSES WERE FILING SUIT AGAINST THIS COMPANY SINCE MANY OF THEM DEVELOPED LIFE CHANGING IMMUNE PROBLEMS FROM THIS VACCINE! I was floored . . I have not been wiling to admit why and when my health fell apart. But there it was. ON further research, I learned that 1 out of 100 adult women come down with immune problems from this vaccine (One in 100!) After I earned my degree in homeopathy and started studying holistic medicine in earnest I moved to California and began my new life of working with treating animals holistically and rescuing cats. I began to see case after case of animals being seriously hurt by vaccination! Please note that every vaccine on the market has either (or both) aluminum and formaldehyde in them. Some of the large vials of flu shots still contain thimerosal in them. The practice of giving many vaccines all at once is also extremely dangerous since it causes “confusion” of the immune system . .. this later can lead to autoimmune diseases. (And over active immune system) All vaccines are questionable in both their safety and effectiveness. We have paid a great price in causing serious chronic illness in both humans and animals to due to vaccines just to “feel safe”.I agree with the author of this article that Big Pharma and many doctors have created the anti-vaccine movement. . .. by treating vaccines like “candy” and not respecting how powerful they are.

  17. I really crave sensible discourse about these issues where both sides can agree to work toward what is best for our children and the world without so much emotion and fear-based decisions involved. I’ve never been a big fan of making decisions out of fear. I almost always regret them – such as getting the flu shot when I was in my third trimester after going 30 years of never getting it even once. My doctor pressured me and made me fear for my baby. Ironically, I felt so much worse emotionally and mentally after getting the shot because I’d made the decision out of fear.

    When the H1N1 scare happened, one friend got really angry with me for not getting it. She had no idea how horribly difficult that decision was for me and my husband. I pored over articles and studies and checked Health Canada’s Flu Watch site for over two weeks. Every time the media reported another death (most of them unconfirmed), I nearly let fear lead me to getting the shots for our family. But I knew from the experience when I was pregnant and from the stats that H1N1 was not going to be the pandemic everyone was expecting.

    Since H1N1, I spend time every year researching the vaccine issue. Since my son (the one I was pregnant with when I got that flu shot?) was diagnosed with autism a little over a year ago, I’m much more involved with researching vaccines. I’m also more open to the possibility that autism is connected to them, where I wasn’t before. I will admit that I don’t like absolutist rhetoric from the “anti-vax” side or the “pro-vax” side. I’d rather people question what’s being pumped into their bodies in the same way that they question and speak out against environmental concerns and food processing practices and pesticide use – to name a few issues. Vaccines just seem to be blindly accepted with vague references to scientific fact that I’m sure few people can actually cite real references to.

    I do have a question about something that I read (sorry, I can’t remember where) – the writer of the article said that one of the vaccine information pamphlets has a warning that the vaccine may cause autism. I am wondering if that is true. I don’t know if the source of the information was reliable and I didn’t have enough time to do the digging. Thanks!

  22. Obviously the whole “anti-vaxxer movement” thing is media-manufactured. The rates of diseases that people are vaccinated against are no different than in the past and yet before 2008 I honestly don’t remember such a massive media scare campaign going on.

    The interesting part of that logic is that the media scare campaign only concerns diseases for which commercial vaccination products are on the line.

    A good example is tuberculosis, against which Americans are not vaccinated. I am vaccinated and fully immune (not in USA). And yet with fantastic number of tuberculosis infections in the USA going into 10s of thousands, nobody seems to be interested. Instead there is panic about 5 or 10 measles cases, a disease that while nasty, is nowhere close as dangerous as tuberculosis. The reason? No money in tuberculosis vaccinations. Lot’s of money in tuberculosis antibiotics – that also create T-superbugs – a problem that would not exist with tuberculosis vaccine.

    Please note that all diseases we are talking about as far as “anti-vaxxer” movement is concerned are diseases that Big Pharma cannot profit from otherwise, because they are viral and they go away on their own (except Polio, of course).

I have even had a pediatrician tell me my the 3 yr old had heart palpatations because of not immunizing, I was a neglectful mother and needed to be educated. I then BLASTED this Dr. with all the information from books on the subject ( from Pediatricians) that do not believe that vaccines are safe. She promptly told me I was wrong… I promptly WALKED out and found a non vaccine friendly Dr.!

  29. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! Can you point me towards any information on not vaccinating our pets? Just took our dogs in for the required rabies shots and had to sit through the vet’s lecture about covering all the other possible deadly diseases. Makes me feel just about the same as every time I have to “fess up” to a doctor or nurse regarding one of my kids.

    1. Go and find your state requirements and you will probably find that you need to do about 10% of what the vet will have you do if you are uneducated. For example, here in TX most shots are only required for the first year. once they have them, they are considered lifetime. Rabies is once every 3 years if you get the 3 year shot.
