Measles risk hyped (lie)
[back] Disease risk ploy [back] Measles
[Measles dangers have been hyped by Allopathy, those with a pecuniary and professional interest in vaccination, while non-Allopathic doctors say it is safe if managed properly (big clue there). You can see the way textbooks have changed as the vaccine came in(Setting the illnesses in context). Many deaths are caused by Allopathic drugs that take out the immune system---the real cause of death is those drugs.

Measles danger hype to sell the vaccine
Setting the illnesses in context
 ''In the majority of children the whole episode has been well and truly over in a week . . . In this practice measles is considered as a relatively mild and inevitable childhood ailment that is best encountered any time from 3 to 7 years of age. Over the past 10 years there have been few serious complications at any age, and all children have made complete recoveries. As a result of this reasoning no special attempts have been made at prevention even in young infants in whom the disease has not been found to be especially serious.'' -- Vital Statistics, British Medical Journal, February 7 1959, p. 381
"First in 1935, I was in private practice in the coal-mining town of Bedlington, England when the triennial measles epidemic struck. Walking or cycling, I would visit the homes of sick children, and in one day would see 20-30 new measles cases. Those were the Depression years, and the children’s diets were decidedly subnormal. It was also the days before antibiotics, so that the treatment was mostly symptomatic and ineffectual. Yet out of more than 500 sick children under my care, not a single one died." – Aidan Cockburn (1912–1981), 1971

"Statistical inflation by the use of laboratory confirmed cases only, to vastly inflate estimated death rates from measles, is the most effective way to convince parents in 2008, that measles will kill far more people than it really will..... It is my opinion, that Peter Flegg been able to create a scientifically invalid method to compare the “worth” of a vaccine, with not vaccinating at all, ONLY by concentrating on laboratory confirmations, and eliminating serological surveys and notified cases from the mathematical equation. "---Hilary Butler [Letters BMJ Becoming Ben Oct 2008]"The official death toll in 1987 for measles was 6, which on the Currie figure of 47,000 cases gives a death rate of just over 1 in 8,000." [BMJ 2005 John Stone. Measles risk] Re: MMR worst case scenario: worth the risk?
"Doctors maintain that the (MMR) inoculation is necessary to prevent measles encephalitis, which they say occurs about once in 1,000 cases. After decades of experience with measles, I question this statistic, and so do many other pediatricians. The incidence of 1/1,000 may be accurate for children who live in conditions of poverty and malnutrition, but in the middle-and upper-income brackets, if one excludes simple sleepiness from the measles itself, the incidence of true encephalitis is probably more like 1/10,900 or 1/100,000."------Dr Mendelsohn 1984
"It is interesting to note the changes in incidence of these (Rubella) complications over the years. In 1980, the incidence of encephalitis was 1/100,000 clinical severe cases (NZ Med. J. August 13, 1980, p. 104), by 1985 it had climbed to 1/50,000 (J. Inf. 1985, p. 240), in 1989 it was 1/20,000 (NZ Med. J. 26 April 1989, p. 202). Now it is supposedly 1/6,000 (Krugman, 1998)..As with measles and mumps, the risk statistics of each era seem to alter to suit the medical opinion of the moment, dependant on whether there is a perceived need to further promote a "fix-it"."--Hilary Butler
"In a recent number of the Leicester Free Press, it is said :" So far as we are concerned in Leicester, a town containing 120,000 inhabitants, with many thousands of unvaccinated children, smallpox seems to be about the least dangerous of all diseases, and is not to be named by the side of scarlet fever, measles, whooping cough, diarrhoea, or even consumption. If a case of small-pox is discovered, instant isolation is adopted, and during the last five years we have hardly had five deaths. That being the state of the case, one need not wonder that the fear of the disease should disappear, or that resistance to vaccination should increase."--William Tebb 1881 http://www.whale.to/vaccine/tebb1.html
"It has been reported by the UK DoH that there has been an epidemic of measles in the Dublin area, and that two children have died: one child suffering from malnutrition, other had other complications, so probably spurious to automatically link deaths to lack of vaccination. Details of cause of death not known. Also 6 intensive care cases, same lack of information - but see below. According to the PHLS of Ireland, the Informed Immunisation Network Dublin and Eurosurveillance Weekly, the year-2000 outbreak grew thus: by Feb 2000 there were 16 hospitalisations, but 9 were under age of vaccination and 4 vaccinated. Only 3 out of 16 cases were therefore children who had avoided vaccination. By June 2000, there were 844 cases, of which 101 were hospitalised. The highest attack rate was in ages 6-14 months, i.e. under the age of MMR. By end September 2000 there were 1523 cases. What the UK DoH does not quote about Ireland is numbers of deaths following vaccination. Any recorded numbers also likely to be underestimate because paediatricians do not always link with MMR."--David Thrower
"Although a clinically significant viral illness, measles is usually benign and uncomplicated. Complications occur more commonly in adults and in children who are undernourished or immunocompromised."-- http://www.emedicine.com/emerg/topic389.htm
Measles ploy--use third world stats:
Use third world statistics to sell vaccine in first world:
"Measles kills 1 million worldwide"---Liam Donaldson, Chief Medical Officer, Sunday Times Jan 28, 2001
They say that if children are not vaccinated against measles millions of children could die during a measles epidemic. They know this is nonsense. What they are using is examples taken from developing countries with poor nutrition and poor immune function in which such epidemic death can occur. In the United States we would not see this because of better nutrition, better health facilities and better sanitation. In fact, most deaths seen when measles outbreaks occur in the United States occur either in children in which vaccination was contraindicated, the vaccine did not work or in children with chronic, immune-suppressing diseases. In fact, in most studies these children catching the measles or other childhood diseases have been either fully immunized or partially immunized. The big secret among "vaccinologists" is that anywhere from 20 to 50% of children are not resistant to the diseases for which they have been immunized. THE TRUTH BEHIND THE VACCINE COVER-UP By Russell Blaylock, M.D.
Point to know:
"In 1980 approx 39% of the world's children (141 million) suffered from some degree of malnutrition."--The Malnourished Child by Robert Suskind, Louisiana State University School of Med.
and it is a made up figure anyway:
According to government, measles was a threat to national interest, claiming more than 40,000 lives every year (a statistic which is laughable since most people who get measles stay at home and treat it and the majority of sick people go to private clinics that do not keep records this figure was of course trumped up). This of course is a questionable statistic since the majority of deaths in Uganda are not registered and few parents remember any measles death. No point in registering a person once he has died. Forty thousand people are far much less than those killed in Uganda annually due to the civil war, dwarfs the figure for malaria, which kills a child every five second and for which governments is happy to ignore. Update: Letter from Kihura Nkuba October 20th, 2003.
45 percent of measles deaths associated with low
weight and poor nutrition.
"It was similar with the measles vaccination. They went through Africa, South America and elsewhere, and vaccinated sick and starving children...They thought they were wiping out measles, but most of those susceptible to measles died from some other disease that they developed as a result of being vaccinated. The vaccination reduced their immune levels and acted like an infection. Many got septicaemia, gastro-enteritis, etcetera, or made their nutritional status worse and they died from malnutrition. So there were very few susceptible infants left alive to get measles. It's one way to get good statistics, kill all those that are susceptible, which is what they literally did." --Dr Kalokerinos, M.D.
Lying with the Truth
Measles ploy--use incidence over death stats:
"If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about the answers."----Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow.
Using incidence rate instead of death rate
This is similar to judging road safety by car numbers instead of death rate. You could make a case for using accidents instead of car numbers if it was proven that measles was a disease that should be suppressed. It isn't according to Homeopathy and Naturopathy
And incidence rate, if true, sure looks better for vaccination than death rate stats.
Measles ploy--use only recent death stats:
Use only recent figures showing death stats rather than the decline figures from futher back where deaths had declined in England & Wales by 99.4% (from 1901/2) before vaccination in 1968.
Measles therapy ploy--ignore non-drug therapies: Nutritional medicine Naturopathy Homeopathy
Measles ploy--ignore studies showing increased disease from suppressing childhood diseases:
"A study by Ronne (Lancet, 5/5/85 1-5) showed that adults who had had natural measles with a rash had a decreased incidence of various cancers, including cervical. Another study showed that women are less likely to contract ovarian cancer if they have had mumps during childhood."--Dr Jayne Donegan
