What’s wrong with the MMR vaccine? Let us count the ways…. (MUST-READ)

From Dick Atlee:

Thanks, Mark. Corvelva’s “Vaccinegate” work has certainly been helpful.

    And there’s a whole world of other problems with MMR/MMRV, including the 

following (most of which I covered in a document I prepared for dealing 
with the Maine mandatory vaccination legislation this year at

1. R: Rubella (German measles) has been “eliminated” in the Western Hemisphere:


  Whether discontinuing the vaccine would change this is an open question, 
but since the vaccine is given to children and the main threat is to 
pregnant women, what’s the point? Same as the Hepatitis B vaccine given on 
the first day of life to protect against a disease of intravenous drug 
users and prostitute customers.

2. V: The loss of the booster effect of circulating chicken-pox/varicella 
virus has left us with a growing epidemic of shingles at all ages (instead 
of the elderly, who used to be the only people sufficiently isolated from 
kids to lack the booster effect).

Joe Mercola has a good article on this at
and Gary Goldman’s original study (CDC was ultimately unsuccessful in 
suppressing publication of their own data that he collected) is at

3. M: The mumps component was fraudulently claimed to be highly effective, 
and now has contributed to the growing outbreaks of mumps among teenagers 
and young adults, who, unlike children (who are often asyptomatic), are 
highly likely to end up with damaged fertility or sterility.

(RFK Jr has a good recent article on this at

4. M: Measles is way too complicated to sum up here, but it’s worth 
pointing out that (a) measles outbreaks occur in “fully-vaccinated” 
populations and there are always a significant number of fully-vaccinated 
victims in outbreaks in vaccine-heterogeneous communities*


and (b) that the vaccine does not provide life-long immunity and allows 
vaccinated mothers to pass on only a short-lived weak immunity to their 
babies (compared to the year-long robust immunity from naturally-infected 
mothers), resulting in the most vulnerable populations (babies and elderly) 
being the most at-risk, compared to children who tend to weather the 
disease well:


* There’s an interesting bit on this (reminiscent of the chicken-pox 
situation) in a post-Disneyland NBC story on this at


Indeed, many adults who were vaccinated for measles decades ago as children 
are now highly susceptible to the virus—perhaps as many as one in 10 of 
those who were immunized, infectious disease experts say.

That’s because, as the years pass, people lose their original protections 
from childhood vaccines that come in the form of disease-battling 
antibodies and “memory cells” that attack infections if the body is ever 
again exposed, doctors say.

“With time, especially if you don’t get natural boosting by being exposed 
to people with that same illness, your memory cells may tend to forget,” 
said Dr. Marcelo Laufer, chief of the division of infectious diseases at 
Miami Children’s Hospital.


That article quotes doctors recommending an additional booster to get 
around this, but that probably won’t work, since boosters beyond the first 
booster (second shot) don’t tend to increase immunity:

A final word on measles—Jeremy Hammond, who, as one of the relatively new 
faces on the scene (formerly more involved in Palestinian issues), has been 
doing STELLAR work on vaccines:

He has just put out an extremely good piece on the fear campaign from the 
perspective of the actual reality of measles deaths, which I’m going to be 
sending to my state senator:

And any discussion of the MMR should include stem cell researcher Theresa 
Deisher’s insights on the dangers of the presence of human DNA fragments 
from the embyronic stem cell lines used in the production of the vaccine:

Del Bigtree interviewed her on his Highwire program a while back, from 
which I extracted an MP3 file at:
