Study Proves Vaccines — Not ‘Vaccine Refusers’ — Are Behind Whooping Cough Outbreaks

whooping

A new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that the whooping cough vaccines that have been in use since the 1990s — and not kids whose parents refuse the whooping cough vaccine — are actually behind the surge in whooping cough outbreaks across the U.S.

This news flies in the face of scads of articles that have come out in the past few years claiming unvaccinated children are behind whooping cough outbreaks. One such article is Time Magazine’s, “Parents Not Vaccinating Kids Contributed to Whooping Cough Outbreaks” reported on back in September. Time cited research published in the Journal of Pediatricsresearch that involved at least one author who disclosed financial ties to Big Pharma vaccine makers Sanofi Pasteur and GlaxoSmithKline — the two companies that just so happen to produce all the pertussis vaccines available in the U.S.

(Even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) admits that unvaccinated children are not responsible for whooping cough outbreaks, by the way.)

Scientists have now concluded that the effectiveness of the acellular pertussis vaccines (DTaP) available on the U.S. market today wanes after about five years. Apparently the old version of the pertussis vaccine was a whole cell vaccine, which supposedly lasted much longer; however, it was discontinued due to side effects such as inducing chronic neurological problems in some of the children who received it.

With this latest study, baboons recently vaccinated for whooping cough were shown to actually carry the pertussis infection in their throats; although they themselves did not get sick, the vaccinated baboons readily spread the infection to other baboons who were not vaccinated.

The New York Times reports:

“When you’re newly vaccinated you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population,” said Tod J. Merkel [aka Captain Obvious #1], the lead author of the study, who is a researcher in the Office of Vaccines Research and Review in the Food and Drug Administration.

Scientists said the finding was surprising, and could be a signpost for investigators as they try to improve the vaccines for people.

“If Dr. Merkel is correct, then we need to develop better acellular vaccines,” said Dr. Stanley Plotkin [aka Captain Obvious #2], an emeritus professor of pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania. … “A great deal of thought and discussion is being devoted to that at the moment,” he said.

Oh great, they’re going to devote a great deal of thought and discussion to it. Good to know.

Each DTaP shot contains the heavy metal aluminum (which bioaccumulates in the body), formaldehyde (great for preserving dead people and apparently awesome for a child’s developing brain as well), bovine protein (yummy) and the additive polysorbate 80 which has been linked to gastrointestinal problems, heart attacks, strokes, impaired immunity and tumor growth for starters.

And remember, when anyone is administered a vaccine, it goes straight into the person’s bloodstream (and eventually the brain), bypassing the digestive system and thus a large portion of the body’s immune system as well.

In the mean time, parents who didn’t want to turn their children into the Typhoid Mary of whooping cough are getting the finger pointed at them to shame them into vaccinating their child with a shot that, for starters, isn’t even that effective anyway EVEN THOUGH NOT ONE, OR EVEN TWO, BUT FIVE DOSES ARE RECOMMENDED!

That’s right, five DTaP shots are recommended — that’s five times the aluminum, formaldehyde, bovine protein and polysorbate 80 — and the kids don’t even get one of those shirts that says, “I got five DTaP shots and all I got was this lousy shirt, a bunch of aluminum and preservatives in my brain, and the ability to spread whooping cough to all of my friends whose parents didn’t make them get five ultimately ineffective DTaP shots” (you know, it had to be printed kinda small to fit it all on the shirt, but that’s not the point).

    Thanks to an establishment smear campaign… Many people still believe that Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s research connecting the MMR vaccine to Autism is fraudulent, or bunk…

    They (including Wikipedia) ignore peer-reviewed publications that say quite the opposite, such as this:

    Walker SJ, Fortunato J, Gonzalez LG, Krigsman A (2013) Identification of Unique Gene Expression Profile in Children with Regressive Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Ileocolitis. PLoS ONE 8(3): e58058. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.005805

    • Scientist

      I have actually read the paper by Walker et al. It tells interesting things about the intestinal microflora of autiststs, which is atypical – but this has absolutely nothing to do with autism. Wakefield is a cheater.

  • Barn Cat

    That’s nonsense. Children need the standard childhood immunizations that have been used since the 50s. They’re safe. They save lives. They don’t cause autism.

    • unkaglen

      Maybe you should come in out of the barn there my cat, and do a little research. You might want to start with the polio vaccine and a little thing known as the SV40 virus. This will help get you started.

    • troll on

      Troll on @barncat you ignorant tool. Children DONT need vaccines and they dont save lives or are they safe.

  • Wayne

    I wonder how many people realize that when they use standard deodorants, they are coating their skins with an aluminum compound (which is NOT a heavy metal) which permeates into their bloodstream thru their skin.

  • cpkdoc

    Why isn’t the journal article which serves as the basis for this linked in the body of this text?

    Great article Melissa.

    We are The Refusers – a Seattle rock band and vaccine (and GMO) awareness group.

    I had to listen to the WA state public health chief blame pertussis vaccine refusers for killing babies in the WA state hearings about vaccine exemptions several years ago.

    As it turns out, the pertussis vaccine is not bactericidal (does not eliminate disease transmission). The fully-vaccinated WA state health public health official could have been carrying and spreading pertussis herself! The ignorance of basic scientific facts about vaccines and disease transmission by pro-vaccine extremists boggles the mind.

    There is nothing new in this baboon study, it’s already established in humans (see article below).

  • Xscuse me

    You didn’t actually read the study did you. I did and it clearly does not say what your article says it did. You just blatantly misconstrued a study to suit your preconceived notion. How utterly unprofessional. Who are you, and what gives you the callous psychopathic tendency to just lie without the slightest sign of discomfort or remorse? The worst crap I’ve read in a long time. Hope I’ll never pass by this garbage again…

  • please be truthful

    The headline of this article is incorrect. The study cited didn’t conclude that vaccines are the cause of recent outbreaks. The study reported that vaccinated primates had less severe symptoms when infected, and that they could still transmit the disease. The same was true for unvaccinated primates only they had more severe symptoms. Nowhere in the study do they claim that vaccinated primates were the cause of an outbreak. The study didn’t conclude that vaccines cause outbreaks, and this study isn’t designed to prove anything about a human outbreak.

    I have to ask now, why does the headline differ so greatly from the study it is referring to? Either the author is trying to mislead readers, or the author didn’t read/understand the study they reported on. In either case, it’s safe to say that if you’re looking for accurate reporting on science, you’ve found the wrong place.

    Other misleadings: the vaccine reported on is given as an intramuscular injection (IM). It goes into the muscle. It isn’t injected “directly into the bloodstream” because that is called an intravenous (IV) injection. To say that an intramuscular injection is going straight into the bloodstream is untrue. To say that anything in the blood goes straight to the brain is untrue, we have a blood brain barrier. Either the author doesn’t know these basic principles of human physiology or she is intentionally misleading readers. Either way, she shouldn’t be reporting on medical literature. This is misinformation.

  • Wha?!?!?

    This is the most ignorant article I’ve ever read. It cites no real scienceaccurately and provudes no proof to support the author’s conclusion. How can you claim to wake up the flock of sheeple with flippant conclusions and a gross misunderstanding of medicine and science? The next time you try to go up against actual facts are draw whatever conclusions you want from an article, even if they are blatantly wrong, you better bring some evidence. Disgusting…

  • Jay.

    Did you read the study they cite? It doesn’t say anything remotely similar to what these people claim. This is just more fodder for the conspiracy theorists.

  • Tom

    So, just skimming through the stuff on the CDC site this article references and the following becomes clear: the reason why the current vaccine is not as effective is because it is an acelluar vaccine instead of the original whole cell vaccine. That it was changed because of the public concern about the immediate side effects of the whole cell vaccine: fever, pain and swelling at the site of injection, and: “Rare but serious neurologic adverse reactions including chronic neurological problems rarely occurred among children who had recently received whole cell vaccines. While studies have had inconsistent results that the vaccine could cause chronic neurological problems, public concern in the US and other countries led to a concerted effort to develop a vaccine with improved safety.”

    The CDC site does not state that un-vaccinated children are not causing the increased outbreaks, but that they are not the driving force behind them, “However, their parents are putting them at greater risk of getting a serious pertussis infection and then possibly spreading it to other family or community members.”

    The study this article references does not state that the vaccinated baboons ‘did not get sick’, but they were protected from severe symptoms.

    The Times article itself should have been better researched.

    The fear mongering tone of the contents of vaccines at the end of the article are unfounded, or a blatant misrepresentation of the lists on the CDC website that are prefaced with: “This table includes not only vaccine ingredients (e.g., adjuvants and preservatives), but also substances used during the manufacturing process, including vaccine-production media, that are removed from the final product and present only in trace quantities.” So the article is saying substances used in the production of the vaccines are actually ingredients, I find this highly irresponsible.

    And the opening sentence? It’s more than just the vaccine according to the CDC: “There are several reasons that help explain why we’re seeing more cases as of late. These include: increased awareness, improved diagnostic tests, better reporting, more circulation of the bacteria, and waning immunity.”

    I just think if you are going to link sites in your article you should thoroughly read those sites, and not just pick and choose what fits your ‘thesis statement’.

    • please be truthful

      Bingo. Well said. There’s so much misinformation in this article that you don’t know where to start.

  • John q publik

    funny, I stopped getting flu shots in the early 90’s, haven’t had the flu since……… I can kiss infected people and swap spit, still no flu. but saying all vaccines are bad, just ain’t true. most I would pass on.

  • sharonsj

    I’m pretty sure I’ve had the flu maybe once or twice in my entire life (70 years). I’ve never had the flu vaccine and I refuse to get it.

    As for autism and vaccinations, the problem is they now give a bunch of vaccinations at one time to babies, including shots for hepatitis. If you look at the CDC schedule, they recommend that a baby get 25 different shots before the age of 18 months. When I was growing up, kids received a small number of vaccinations. I think that’s why I’m in good health (that, and plenty of vitamins and minerals).
