Globe&Mail: Stop the hysteria over measles outbreaks
Far fewer than how many? Did you notice there are no actual statistics in this piece? Just a bunch of weasel words!
First of all, not ALL children get the disease. I for one never, ever, had measles. Nor mumps. Nor chicken pox. And I can't possibly be the only one like that ... can I? See how they can make you doubt yourself?
The only truly good thing the Pharmers produced was cod-liver oil, and it was provided free to school children. In grade one, we kids all had to bring big spoons to school, and each morning we would line up and the teacher would pour the oil into our individual spoons and, because we liked our teacher and didn't want to disappoint her, we swallowed the yucky goop without complaint.
It wasn't a chemical; it was real fish oil, and no one can even wonder about the boon it is to a healthy immunity. I've taken fish oil all my life, and I never get what's going around, not to mention that I have strong bones, unlike many women my age.
I used to beg kids in my class who'd come down with mumps and were being sent home to breathe on me because I, too, wanted a vacation from school. Now it's all a panic, a tense debate, a deep concern for parents -- and that's been deliberately fostered by the Pharmers via TV and your family physician, who knows about drugs only as much as the Pharm rep imparts.
It's too easy to make a young parent worry, and full advantage has been taken of that, not to mention that TV warns daily of all sorts of general conditions for which the magic cure has been found at a price you may or may not be able to afford.
As far as sanitation is concerned, the same can be said of all diseases. Better sanitation, better nutrition is all the immunization required, considering that an unstated percentage of immunized children still come down with the very diseases against which they were vaccinated.
Have you ever noticed that, when there is an actual measles outbreak reported, no stats are offered on which of the affected kids were vaccinated or not, nor on their overall living conditions?
Okay, here's a story about Measles Mary (takeoff on Typhoid Mary). She was reportedly completely unaffected by the measles vaccines; her body ignored it. The problem with vaccines, including the flu shot, is that you can infect other people for a short while after getting the shot.
I'm like Measles Mary; my body would probably ignore it too, as it did the BCG vaccine I was once required to have in order to work in a hospital during the 60's. They let me work there anyway. Go figure.
Strangely, the small pox vaccine became a must-have just as the disease itself was disappearing due to improved sanitary conditions. It's blatantly admitted that:
But ... here the admission is accompanied by a vague reference to another means of contraction:
Notice the weasel-word "may" in relation to the word "common"? They don't know for sure if their statement is true, but they need you to hear the word "common" even though they don't give any indication of how common.
It certainly was no comfort to hear during the height of the ghastly attack on Iraq that kindly left-wingers were proud to have been able to get Iraqi children vaccinated against polio. That's the kind of anti-disaster campaign that philanthropist Malthusians like Bill Gates give big dollars to.
There's never been a huge outcry against the overall destruction of Iraq's infrastructure, not to mention the nuclear-tipped bombs that poisoned the whole country, and caused miscarriages, cancers and birth defects.
It's only now that the corporate media have begun to broach that subject:
Could it be that the Left is now being given permission to come out against the continued war in Iraq? Like they finally did for Vietnam?
And don't even get me started on the potential side-effects of the MMR vaccine. The information provided by the makers is not generally made public, but when you actually get to see it, you may wonder if the risks of the vaccine are greater than the risks of the disease occurring naturally.
We exist in a chemical world. In our quest for good health we consult doctors and dentists whose practices require a heavy use of chemicals which in themselves adversely affect our general health. Not to mention that most people my age have a mouthful of amalgam = mercury. And it's even more dangerous to our health to have the amalgam replaced with white fillings because of the off-gassing during the process.
The Canadian Dental Association gives an extremely wishy-washy response to questions about possible dangers from amalgam. If they were concerned about class action suits, would they come right out and say amalgam isn't good for you? Probably not.
And they don't even opine whether the small, daily amounts of ingested mercury accumulate in the tissues to a degree that could be dangerous.
The Guardian (of the status quo?) says:
How comforting is that, eh? Basically, amalgam is harmless, though it is linked to a slew of ailments, but you're better off keeping them than having them removed which would release even more of the vapours you are already being treated to on a daily basis.
And get this: nobody knows what causes autoimmune disease or why it is on the rise!
The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association Inc. has a list of over 100 such conditions.
The health system in general is a risky business. You can't even stay in hospital without worrying about MRSA and lord knows what else. It's like we've gone back to the dark ages in that respect, where people quite rightly feared hospitals.
As I've said before, I'm glad my children are adults now and can make their own decisions. I've got only myself to consider, and since I have multiple autoimmune problems for which I long ago gave up hope of finding any other cure but my own common sense, my main rule of thumb is to avoid chemicals wherever possible. And that means avoiding the medical profession.
I'm lucky to have found a dentist who lets me rant on against fluoride and Epinephrine and still finds a way we can get the job done. But I still have a horror of the medical profession in general.
By the way, against all advice that I needed rabies, tetanus and antibiotic shots, I never did see an MD for the dog bite inflicted on the back of my leg three weeks ago. I may have the imprint with me for some time (see image below) but I'm proud to say it's healed well with no impact on my general health.
The scar looks big, but it's shrunk in size to only about the size of a dime. (Cool how you can still see a distinct imprint of one of the little monster's fangs.)
