In 2015 a measles epidemic was reported in south-east United States, reported to have started in Florida. Supposedly unvaccinated children were the source. However, according to published science, with no blood tests proving the outbreak is from wild-measles, the most likely source of the outbreak is a recently vaccinated individual.
Science continues to demonstrate that individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines, such as MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles, and influenza can shed the virus for weeks or months afterwards. This can infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.
Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the back of their throat and infect others while the individual has no symptoms of a disease.
Leslie Manookian, a documentary filmmaker and activist, says: “Numerous scientific studies indicate that children who receive a live virus vaccination can shed the disease and infect others for weeks or even months afterwards. Thus, parents who vaccinate their children can indeed put others at risk.” Manookian is best known for her award winning documentary, The Greater Good, which aims to open up dialog about vaccine safety.
Both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals are at the same risk from exposure to those who have been recently vaccinated. And the failure of vaccinations is widespread: vaccine-induced immunity is not permanent, and recent outbreaks of diseases – such as whooping cough, mumps, and measles – have occurred in fully vaccinated populations. Flu vaccine recipients become more susceptible to future infected infection after repeated vaccination.
“Health officials should require a two-week quarantine of all children and adults who receive vaccinations,” believes Sally Fallon Morell, the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. “This is the minimum amount of time required to prevent transmission of infectious diseases to the rest of the population, including individuals who have been previously vaccinated.
“Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and vaccinated individuals,” said Manookian. “CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who’ve been recently vaccinated.”
The Weston A. Price Foundation believes the best protection against infectious disease is a healthy immune system, supported by adequate vitamin A and vitamin C. Children who are well-nourished can easily recover from infectious disease and rarely suffer complications.
It’s not hype to cause mass hysteria: facts and figures share that the number of measles deaths declines from 7,575 in 1920 (10,000 per year in many years in the 1910s) to an average of 431 each year from 1958-1962. The vaccine was introduced in 1963.
Between 2005 and 2014, there have been no deaths from measles in the U.S. And 108 deaths from the MMR vaccine.
