Is there a polio outbreak in Minnesota?

April 17, 2009

A person has possible symptoms of polio. It’s suspected they caught the polio virus from another person who was vaccinated with oral polio.

Does anybody remember the 2005 polio outbreak the media reported among the Amish? Did you know it was, in fact, not an outbreak?

On October 14, the major media outlets shrieked a report of “the first outbreak of polio in the United States in 26 years,” occurring in an Amish community in central Minnesota. The specter of hundreds of children in braces and iron lung machines lining the halls of hospitals immediately danced through the air, and directly into the minds of parents who have chosen to not vaccinate their children.

More than a month later, phone calls and emails from concerned parents continue to pour in. The fears surrounding this “outbreak” need to be put to rest.

First of all, there wasn’t an “outbreak of polio.” There was only the discovery of an inactivated polio virus in the stool of four children. The first confirmation was in a 7-month old Amish infant, presumably hospitalized, with severe immune deficiency. The “find” prompted screening of other children in the community; four children were confirmed positive. None experienced any type of paralysis.

Part of the panic can be blamed on inaccurate reporting. The virus that was identified was not “wild polio.” It was a virus that is found only in the oral polio vaccine (OPV). Oral vaccine-strain viruses are inactivated with formaldehyde and are generally considered by the CDC “too weak” to cause disease. Even though the OPV is still used extensively in Third World countries, it has not been used in the United States since 2000. How did children in an isolated Amish community, with no exposure to foreigners, become exposed to vaccine-strain polio virus? That remains a mystery.

The unasked question is why was finding this strain front-page news? My suspicion is that it was because it was an Amish child; a large number of the Amish choose to not vaccinate their children. A confirmation would serve a dual purpose: to make an ”example” of the Amish and scare parents into believing polio still being ”in circulation,” when in fact, it is not.

A review of polio is important to alleviating the fears about the disease. Keep in mind that the last case of “wild type” polio virus in U.S was in 1979; the last case the Western Hemisphere was in the Peru, in 1991.

Polioviruses are transient inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract. Up to 95% of all polio infections are completely asymptomatic. Approximately 5% of polio infections consist of a minor, nonspecific illness consisting of an upper respiratory tract infection (sore throat and fever) and gastrointestinal disturbances (nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea). This influenza-like illness, clinically indistinguishable from the myriad of other viral illnesses, is characterized by complete recovery in less than a week with resultant life time immunity.

I wonder what will really become of this story in Minnesota. I just don’t believe what is being reported. It is misleading.

Could it be possible the person was vaccinated with oral polio virus which stayed in their system and is still being detected?

Could it be possible the person died of another neurological disorder unrelated to polio?

I don’t know. I’m not a doctor but with all my vaccine research, I have to speculate.

Vaccinated child still caught “Whooping Cough”

April 14, 2009
The Dan River Middle School student diagnosed with whooping cough this week is recovering at UVa Medical Center and is improving, said an epidemiologist with the Pittsylvania-Danville Health District.
Though health officials are not sure where the victim caught the bacteria, the student had been vaccinated against the condition, Verna Burnette, epidemiologist with the Health District, said Thursday. The highly contagious whooping cough, or pertussis, is spread among humans via droplets released from coughing and sneezing, Burnette said.

You can read the full story here

Yes, you read that correctly, a child who was vaccinated for pertussus, or whooping cough, still caught it. I’m surprised the media actually printed it. Most of the time they change the story or lead you to believe it is the unvaccinated who are the disease spreaders. Here is proof vaccines do not always work, especially ones for bacterial illnesses like whooping cough, and that vaccinated children spread disease.

Parents are under the assumption that vaccines are 100% effective, which is false,  and doctors aren’t telling parents all the facts.

 

 

 

People dropping dead from the flu!

February 21, 2009

If somebody dies of the flu and you don’t know if they’ve been vaccinated, insinuate they have not been – or just make something up!

This is what I read in an article about an Arizona teen who died from the flu. The author of the article doesn’t even know if the teen was vaccinated or not so said person leads the reader to assume the teen had NOT been vaccinated. Things like this infuriate me, especially when there’s many more reactions and deaths from the flu vaccine itself, according to the VAERS database, than people who die from a vaccine that is only 40% effective, not 80% as another article states.

It is impossible to know if the vaccine would have even protected some others who have died from the flu since it is only 40 % effective in any given year. I’d love to read the medical records of all these children and see if they really died from the flu or a secondary disease acquired after getting the flu.

I believe it’s just a scare tactic to get vaccination rates up and make big pharma some more money.

Flu vaccine facts: All injected flu vaccines contain mercury, a neurotoxin not safe in ANY amount.

NO flu vaccine is approved according to the package insert for ANY children under 6 years of age.

There are more than 36,000 adverse reactions reported to VAERS and deaths from the flu vaccine.

The flu vaccine is only 30% to 40% effective as of the 2008 flu season and only MILDLY effective in elderly people, yet the media uses scare tactics and inaccurate numbers to get more people injected.

You CAN catch and spread the flu itself from the flumist vaccine since it is a LIVE flu virus.

Vaccines may still be linked to Autism

February 15, 2009

I’ve been reading a lot lately about the special court ruling that there is no link between the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine and Autism.

Does the media really think parents are only concerned about the MMR vaccine and Autism?

Many parents are concerned about the amount of dangerous toxins in shots, the explosion in autoimmune disorders, and even the risk of death when you vaccinate your child. Yes, shots can and do kill. It’s considered collateral damage or for the greater good. This is why it’s so important to make an informed decision and weight the risk of vaccination against the risk of disease.

So, what are your concerns about vaccinations? Take my poll.

5 Vaccines You Should Never Get

January 27, 2009

I came across this and found it very interesting. I wanted to share it with you.

5 Vaccines You Should Never Get

Whooping cough, rubella, chicken pox, measles, flu, tuberculosis, cervical cancer, you name it… If it’s a disease, pharmaceutical companies are breaking the bank trying to develop a vaccine for it.

Sounds good, until you realize that millions of us are lining up every year to avoid illnesses we have almost no chance of catching… or diseases that are often very easy to prevent and treat.

Vaccinations have become a billion-dollar money game, plain and simple. Drug companies have used scare tactics to convince people to be injected with junk concoctions that, in some cases, are causing far more health problems than they are preventing.”
