Medical Journal Articles on the Dangers of Vaccines
For those with a mind open enough to do some homework, below please find a collection of medical journal articles dealing with the dangers and ineffectiveness of vaccines.
If your doctor refuses to discuss not vaccinating your child, insist that he read these peer-reviewed articles. If he still insists on innoculating your child, find another pediatrician.
It's time we stood up to the people who would inject filth into the pure bloodstreams of innocent children.

Bilateral Hearing Loss After Measles and Rubella Vaccination In An Adult (NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE July 11, 1991 pg 134)
Reports of Sensorineural deafness after measles, mumps, and rubella immunization Arch of Disease in Childhood 1993:69 There have been 9 reports of sensorineural hearing loss after MMR immunization. In three cases the deafness was unrelated .In six cases the cause was unknown but MMR remained a possible aetiology.
* Case 1: This girl developed a rubella form rash 25 days after immunization. Three days later she developed vomiting and malaise. On revue, a week later, she exhibited poor balance. Nine weeks later she was found to respond poorly to sound. She had stopped speaking for the proceeding two weeks.
* Case 2: This boy's father suffered flu like illness at the same time that the boy was unwell after immunization. His mother noticed his poor hearing but attributed it to inattention and did not seek medical advice. He also has amblyopia and learning difficulties.
* Case number 9: This boy became deaf four months after immunization. Mumps antibody titers measured at this time and one month later showed a significant rise.
* Two of the cases not related .One child was deaf before vaccination and the other never received vaccinations the rest listed could be possibly related to MMR vaccine.
Is RA27/3 Rubella immunization a cause of chronic fatigue (MEDICAL HYPOTHESES 1988 27 pgs. 217-220)
Abstract- Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (primary fibrositis syndrome, major affective disorder ,etc.) have elevated IgG serum antibodies to multiple common viruses. Only IgGrubella antibodies are positively correlated with the intensity of symptoms and have a height that is clearly significant compared to healthy controls. The lymphotrophic properties of the rubella virus could account for the multiple elevated antibodies. Adult women are over-represented in the population of patients with chronic fatigue, and are especially susceptible to developing such symptoms following exposure to attenuated rubella new more potent strain of live rubella vaccine strain RA27/3 (my.02 this vaccine is the one using the aborted fetal tissue cells) was introduced in 1979. Within three years, reports of patients with chronic fatigue began surfacing in the literature. Considering all this, the possible role of rubella immunizations in the etiology of chronic fatigue syndrome deserves further study.

Gamma Globulin Prophylaxis; Inactivated Rubella Virus; Production and Biologics Control of Live Attenuated Rubella Virus Vaccines (this is contains info on the use of human aborted fetal tissue cells in rubella vaccine) Amer J Dis Child 1969 vol 118 I am just going to point out a few things in this article. The first part deals with gamma globulin. The part of interest is the end where there is a discussion between doctors and researchers, one being the famous Dr. Sabin. They begin discussing the possible dangers of the aborted fetal tissue cells (they also discuss animal use and its dangers) with possible genetic material passed over into the vaccine. Also human leukemia viruses. They start discussing the aborted fetus used in the WI-38 cell (this is the fetus tissue cells they use to grown the disease on it is lung cells ). I am going to type part of this discussion.
Dr. K McCarthy: It seems to me that there are two things that we worry about in regards to WI-38 cell substrate. First of all, presence of extraneous viral agents; secondly, the possibility of there being human genetic material passed over into the vaccine. I wonder if there is any information about the reasons for aborting that particular embryo that gave rise to WI-38; and if it was from a family, whether we have any information about siblings from the family and whether they are normal?
Dr. S Plotkin, Philidelphia: I should like to answer Dr. McCarthy's question. This fetus was chosen by Dr. Sven Gard, specifically for this purpose. Both parents are known, and unfortunately for the story, they are married to each other, still alive and well, and living in Stockholm, presumably. The abortion was done because they felt they had too many children. There were no familial diseases in the history of either parent, and no history of cancer specifically in the families; I believe this answers Dr. McCarthy's question.
Dr Sabin goes on to say that this issue (objections to their use) is based on emotion rather than reason. He then goes on talk about how in theory something may show up later that we do not have the technology now to discover (my .02 we all know they did not discover SV40 right away). Also he talks about a number of researchers and the national Cancer Institute are developing a program to determine whether the leukemia sarcoma complex that has been now been so well characterized in avian species and in mice may also have its counter part in human beings. (The discussion goes into further detail.)

Studies of Immunization With Living Rubella Virus (more on aborted fetal tissue) Amer J Dis Child vol 110 Oct 1965 This fetus was from a 25 year old mother exposed to rubella 8 days after last menstrual period. Sixteen days later she developed rubella. The fetus was surgically aborted 17 days after maternal illness and dissected immediately. Explants from several organs were cultured and successful cell growth was achieved from lung, skin, and kidney. It was then grown on WI-38. This new vaccine was tested on orphans in Philadelphia.
Attenuation of RA 27/3 Rubella virus in WI-38 Human Diploid Cells (more on use of aborted fetal tissue) Amer J Dis Child Vol 118 1969 Explant cultures were made of the dissected organs of a particular fetus aborted because of rubella, the 27th in our series of fetuses aborted during the 1964 epidemic. The third explant, which happened to be from kidney, was selected arbitrarily for further study.

Neurological disorders Following Live Measles-Virus Vaccination (JAMA March 1973, Vol 223 No 13) Abstract: From 1963 through 1971, eighty four cases of neurologic disorders with onset less than 30 days after live measles-virus vaccination were reported in the United states. Thirteen could be adequately accounted for by cases other than vaccine, and another 11 were uncomplicated febrile convulsions probably related to vaccination. One case met diagnostic criteria for subacute sclerosing panencephalitis. The remaining 59 showed clinical features of encephalitis or encephalopathy. Causes of these cases could not be established, but 45 (76%) had onset between 6 and 15 days after vaccination; this clustering suggests that some may have been caused by vaccine. From 1963 through 1971, 50.9 million doses of measles vaccine were distributed, and, therefore, incidence of the reported neurologic disorders was 1.16 per million doses. Risk of encephalitis following measles infection is one per thousand cases. (my note - the vast majority of vaccine complications go unreported, making the figure inaccurate and the figure for encephalitis complications following measles infection is grossly overstated.)

Guillain -Barre Syndrome Following Administration of Live Measles Vaccine Amer J of Med 1976 Vol 60
Summary: In a 19 month old girl and a 16 month old girl the gullian barre syndrome developed within a week after they received, respectively, live measles-rubella vaccine and live measles vaccine. The older child was immune to rubella at the time of vaccination, but both girls demonstrated a primary measles antibody response. Serum obtained during the acute and convalescent stages from the younger child was tested for antibodies against the herpes virus, epstein barre virus, cytomeglovirus and varicella -zoster and found to be negative. The author goes on to state vaccine and wild strains can in the pathological process lead to demyelinzation. These two cases again emphasize the need to carefully document the neurological diseases which follow infections with live virus vaccines.

Shedding of Virulent Poliovirus Revertants during Immunization with Oral Poliovirus Vaccine after Prior Immunization with Inactivated Polio Vaccine J of Infect Dis 1993 ;168 Abstract: Fecal shedding of virulent revertant polioviruses was examined n isolates from infants previously immunized with >1 dose of orally administered live attenuated polio vaccine (OPV) alone, enhanced-potency inactivated polio vaccine (EIPV) alone, or a combination of both. After administration of OPV alone, vaccine poliovirus serotypes were recovered in feces within 1 week and for as long as 31-60 days in 30%-80% of subjects after 1 or 2 doses and in 30%-50% after immunization with >3 doses. No revertant poliovirus shedding was observed after OPV challenge in subjects immunized previously with >3 doses of OPV. However, fecal shedding of revertant poliovirus after OPV challenge was observed in 50%-100% of subjects previously immunized with >3 doses of the EIPV. These findings suggest that prior immunization with EIPV does not prevent fecal shedding of revertant polioviruses after subsequent reexposure to OPV.

* 1 Vaccines are not standardized between manufacturers.
* 2 For a given manufacturer, vaccines are not standard from one batch to the next.
* 3 Unless the vaccine is properly prepared and refrigerated, its potency and reactivity varies with shelf life.
* 4 In fact, the whole question of vaccine detoxification has never been systematically investigated.

Infectious Episodes Following Diphtheria Pertussis Tetanus Vaccination Clinical Pediatrics Oct 1988 82 infants, aged 2-12 months, were prospectively studied for infectious episodes following DPT immunization. The occurrence of infectious episodes during the month following vaccination was compared to that during the month prior to its administration. The 3 days following vaccination were not included. In comparison to the month prior to immunization, during the month following there were significantly more infants with fever (6.1% vs.24.4%, p < 0.001), with diarrhea (7.3% vs. 23.1, p < 0.005), and with cough (37.7% vs. 52.4% p N.S.). After the first month of the study, there was an increase in morbidity in the region, so we reevaluated those cases who had been seen during the latter 3 months. The same trend was found: in the month following immunization there were significantly more infants with fever (53% vs.25%, p < 0.005), with diarrhea (10.5% vs 28%, p <0.02), and with cough (26% vs. 54%,p <0.01). There was no correlation between the incidence of these episodes and the age at vaccination. In addition to reactive fever during the first 3 days following DPT immunization, an increase in infectious episodes seems to occur in infants during the month following administration of this vaccine.

Incentive for Measles Mumps and Rubella Vaccination Lancet March 1989 pg 496 Sir--Dr.Miller and colleagues (Feb 4, p271) suggest that education of parents and professionals could bring about full measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination coverage before the child is two yrs. old. Dr. Narayan (Feb 4, p272) suggests monitoring of small-area uptakes and giving authority to the immunisation co-oridinators, in addition to educational campaigns. In England at least, unit managers possess the necessary authority and they receive performance-related pay. We ought to consider seriously the offer of financial incentives to parents willing to present their children for immunisation. A 10 pound voucher could work wonders for uptake. The risk of contradictions being hidden by a greedy parent could be reduced by ensuring that the money is linked to attendance at the clinic, not to insertion of the needle.) A pilot trial is called for. J.K. Anand
