The Measles Have Left the Building, Right?

What part of subset don't they understand?

Team MMR at the CDC really hit a homer for non-vaccinating parents with this latest vaccine exoneration study.

And to think, all they did was use their heads.

The facts surrounding Measles virus isolation are it's very problematic to do, and exposure to wild-type Measles virus is actually common.

One thing for sure, while attempting to scare the general public into believing there's this incredible all-world Measles pre-pandemic going on they admit that they found very little, if any kind of Measles virus in a bunch of children.

Wakefield's investigation, which was ripped out of Lancet, deliberately included a disproportionate number of children who regressed into Autism upon or shortly after MMR vaccination. While some narrow-minded folks thought of this as stacking the deck, the reason apparently was to draw the attention to vaccine-strain Measles lesions in these children's tummies...ummm and in their cerebrospinal fluid.

Wakefield did draw attention followed by lots and lots of what scientific people have to deal with, unfair and inappropriate pressure.

According to several members of the scientific community even the stupidest studies stay in.

But YOU still don't get it?

If you did get it, you're wise enough to understand that Wakefield's investigation did two things, not one.

I found the CDC-sanctioned Hornig MMR study and a quick search using terms like cerebral, cerebrospinal, fluid, etc. produced a big, fat zero.

What else does Measles infection do?

Although complications involving the nervous system occur in fewer than one in 1,000 cases, the long-term effects can be devastating.

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis is known to happen with Measles infection and/or the result of a mutation in the virus itself.

Read some of the very scary SSPE symptoms trying to not forget how we all, once upon a time, read something about babies with stiff necks or back-arching when held might be autistic.

Characterized by a history of primary measles infection usually before the age of 2 years, followed by several asymptomatic years (6–15 on average), and then gradual, progressive psychoneurological deterioration, consisting of personality change, seizures, myoclonus, ataxia, photosensitivity, ocular abnormalities, spasticity, and coma.

Here's another viewpoint on SSPE:

An extremely serious complication of measles infection is swelling of the brain. Called encephalitis, this can occur up to several weeks after the basic measles symptoms have resolved. About one out of every thousand patients develops this complication, and about 10-15% of these patients die.

Symptoms include fever, headache, sleepiness, seizures, and coma. Long-term problems following recovery from measles encephalitis may include seizures and mental retardation.

A very rare complication of measles can occur up to 10 years following the initial infection. Called subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, this is a slowly progressing, smoldering swelling and destruction of the entire brain. It is most common among people who had measles infection prior to the age of two years.

Symptoms include changes in personality, decreased intelligence with accompanying school problems, decreased coordination, involuntary jerks and movements of the body.

The disease progresses so that the individual becomes increasingly dependent, ultimately becoming bedridden and unaware of his or her surroundings. Blindness may develop, and the temperature may spike (rise rapidly) and fall unpredictably as the brain structures responsible for temperature regulation are affected. Death is inevitable.

See? Hornig and company just forgot to look for the reasons the MMR vaccine is supposed to be for. If you recall why the vaccinators vaccine for Measles, Wakefield's findings make a lot of sense because the vaccine can cause all the stuff in brown lettering above.

A recipient of MMR vaccine does not necessarily develop clinical Measles. Yet, cases of vaccine-induced encephalopathy have occured, do occur, and will occur.

The problem is, as pointed out in one article, medical terms like Autism, encephalopathy and encephalitis are very often used imprecisely and even interchangeably in the literature.

As for whatever you want to call the Autistic-like neuro-sickness afflicting thousands and thousands of children, the MMR vaccine is already known to have a biological plausibility for causing all sorts of lasting autistic-like damage.

Just over the past few years, MMR vaccine has been recalled in the U.S., Canada, Italy, Jordan, and many others for some unknown reason(s).

Bad lots? Continued gene-splicing experimentation? They know, but will never tell the public. They aren't required to.

And, of course, prosecutors in Russia busted up an MMR trial racket after parents complained their children experimented on began experiencing developmental issues.
Trash it already.
