Vaccine News – Mumps Outbreak Tied to Vaccine Shortfalls

Attacking Ourselves: Top Doctors Reveal Vaccines Turn Our Immune System Against Us
Posted on: Tuesday, February 24th 2015 at 6:45 pm
Written By: Celeste McGovern
The research is hard to ignore, vaccines can trigger autoimmunity with a laundry list of diseases to follow. With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible and which individuals are more at risk?
No one would accuse Yehuda Shoenfeld of being a quack. The Israeli clinician has spent more than three decades studying the human immune system and is at the pinnacle of his profession. You might say he is more foundation than fringe in his specialty; he wrote the textbooks. The Mosaic of Autoimmunity, Autoantibodies, Diagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases, Infection and Autoimmunity, Cancer and Autoimmunity – the list is 25 titles long and some of them are cornerstones of clinical practice. Hardly surprising that Shoenfeld has been called the “Godfather of Autoimmunology” – the study of the immune system turned on itself in a wide array of diseases from type 1 diabetes to ulcerative colitis and multiple sclerosis.
But something strange is happening in the world of immunology lately and a small evidence of it is that the Godfather of Autoimmunology is pointing to vaccines – specifically, some of their ingredients including the toxic metal aluminum – as a significant contributor to the growing global epidemic of autoimmune diseases. The bigger evidence is a huge body of research that’s poured in in the past 15 years, and particularly in the past five years. Take for example, a recent article published in the journal Pharmacological Research in which Shoenfeld and colleagues issue unprecedented guidelines naming four categories of people who are most at risk for vaccine-induced autoimmunity.
“On one hand,” vaccines prevent infections which can trigger autoimmunity, say the paper’s authors, Alessandra Soriano, of the Department of Clinical Medicine and Rheumatology at the Campus Bio-Medico University in Rome, Gideon Nesher, of the Hebrew University Medical School in Jerusalem and Shoenfeld, founder and head of the Zabludowicz Center of Autoimmune Diseases in the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer. He is also editor of three medical journals and author of more than 1,500 research papers across the spectrum of medical journalism and founder of the International Congress on Autoimmunology. “On the other hand, many reports that describe post-vaccination autoimmunity strongly suggest that vaccines can indeed trigger autoimmunity. Defined autoimmune diseases that may occur following vaccinations include arthritis, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE) diabetes mellitus, thrombocytopenia, vasculitis, dermatomyosiositis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and demyelinating disorders. Almost all types of vaccines have been reported to be associated with the onset of ASIA.”
ASIA – or Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (also known as Shoenfeld’s syndrome) — first appeared in the Journal of Autoimmunology four years ago. It is an umbrella term for a collection of similar symptoms, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, that result after exposure to an adjuvant – an environmental agent including common vaccine ingredients that stimulate the immune system. Since then an enormous body of research, using ASIA as a paradigm, has begun to unravel the mystery of how environmental toxins, particularly the metal aluminum used in vaccines, can trigger an immune system chain reaction in susceptible individuals and may lead to overt autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune disease results when the body’s system meant to attack foreign invaders turns instead to attack part of the body it belongs to (auto is Greek for self). If the immune system is like a national defence system, antibodies are like drones programmed to recognize a certain type of invader (a bacteria say) and to destroy them or mark them for destruction by other special forces. Autoantibodies are like drones that are misidentifying a component of the human body and have launched a sustained attack on it. If they mistakenly target a component of the conductive sheath around neurons, for example, nerve impulses stop conducting properly, muscles go into spasm and coordination fails; multiple sclerosis results. If autoantibodies erroneously focus on joint tissue; rheumatoid arthritis results. If they target the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, Type 1 diabetes, and so on
“Throughout our lifetime the normal immune system walks a fine line between preserving normal immune reactions and developing autoimmune diseases,” says the paper. “The healthy immune system is tolerant to self-antigens. When self-tolerance is disturbed, dysregulation of the immune system follows, resulting in emergence of an autoimmune disease. Vaccination is one of the conditions that may disturb this homeostasis in susceptible individuals, resulting in autoimmune phenomena and ASIA.”
Who is “susceptible” is the subject of the paper entitled, “Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: Who might be at risk?” It lists four categories of people: 1) those who have had a previous autoimmune reaction to a vaccine, 2) anyone with a medical history of autoimmunity, 3) patients with a history of allergic reactions, 4) anyone at high risk of developing autoimmune disease including anyone with a family history of autoimmunity, presence of autoantibodies which are detectable by blood tests and other factors including low vitamin D and smoking.

Study – ‘ASIA’ – autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants.
J Autoimmun. 2011 Feb
Abstract
The role of various environmental factors in the pathogenesis of immune mediated diseases is well established. Of which, factors entailing an immune adjuvant activity such as infectious agents, silicone, aluminium salts and others were associated with defined and non-defined immune mediated diseases both in animal models and in humans. In recent years, four conditions: siliconosis, the Gulf war syndrome (GWS), the macrophagic myofasciitis syndrome (MMF) and post-vaccination phenomena were linked with previous exposure to an adjuvant. Furthermore, these four diseases share a similar complex of signs and symptoms which further support a common denominator.Thus, we review herein the current data regarding the role of adjuvants in the pathogenesis of immune mediated diseases as well as the amassed data regarding each of these four conditions. Relating to the current knowledge we would like to suggest to include these comparable conditions under a common syndrome entitled ASIA, “Autoimmune (Auto-inflammatory) Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants”.

SCIENCE FACT: Chicken pox vaccine is made with “human embryonic lung cell cultures” and human diploid cell cultures from aborted fetal tissue
Monday, March 13, 2017 by: Mike Adams
(Natural News) Every individual or organization that tells you chicken pox vaccines are not made with human fetal tissue cell lines is engaged in science denialism.
It is an irrefutable science fact that varicella (chicken pox) vaccines are made with not just aborted human fetal tissue cell lines, but also cells take from guinea pigs and cows. In effect, a chicken pox vaccine is a multi-species blood and tissue cocktail of DNA and chemicals being mainlined into your tissue and blood.
This is all openly admitted by the CDC itself which lists the excipient ingredients used in common vaccines such as chicken pox, MMR and TDaP. Here’s what the CDC says is used in Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, current as of January 6, 2017. You can see this list for yourself at this CDC.gov link. If the CDC removes their document, we’ve saved a copy at this Natural News link:
human embryonic lung cell cultures, guinea pig cell cultures, human diploid cell cultures (WI-38), human diploid cell cultures (MRC-5), sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, sodium chloride, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), neomycin, fetal bovine serum

Vaccine Test Results
First results of vaccine investigations
Translated by Erwin Alber from the German original Erste Ergebnisse der Impfstoffuntersuchungen published in Hans Tolzin’s newsletter impf report
(ht) In 2016, several thousand euros were donated to the non-profit association AGBUG e. V. for the investigation of the contents of currently used vaccines. We would like to thank all those who have contributed to this.
Originally, it was intended to only test the vaccines for their mercury content. The association has then however extended the focus of the investigation to include all searchable elements.
AGBUG has now published the results of the first batch on its website, so far without any evaluation! All those of you who have are knowledgeable about the toxic effects of particular elements are invited to contribute their expertise. Please send your feedback by e-mail to redaktion@impf-report.de or post under this article as a comment.

What You Didn’t Know About the Aborted Baby Parts in Your Vaccines

Families With Vaccine-Damaged Children Are Being Bullied Into Silence
Silencing victims of medical mishaps, is not unusual. In fact, it is almost expected these days, with “corruption” and “corporation” almost being synonymous terms.
For one family in the United Kingdom, though, things have gone to a whole new level. This family has received death threats and warnings to keep quiet about the horrible damage done to their daughter.
In 1993, the Marchant family’s 14-month-old daughter received what was supposed to be just aregular MMR vaccine. Before receiving her vaccination, baby Jodie said, “Love you!” to her dad in the waiting room at the doctor’s office. Everything seemed to be going okay — until Mr. Marchant heard his child scream.
As they would later learn,though they thought their child was being given a standard MMR vaccine, this was not the case. In fact, it turned out their child was given an untested 8-in-1 vaccine illegally — a vaccine that would permanently damage their perfectly healthy baby.
After taking their baby girl, Jodie, home from her vaccination appointment, her parents noticed she was shivering, shaking, screaming and running a fever. Like any parent would, the Marchants consulted with a doctor immediately. The doctor insisted Jodie was just suffering from a virus and there was nothing to worry about. Sadly, this would instead become the day Jodie was left permanently disabled, never again to be her normal self.
Jodie began suffering from seizures, incontinence of both bowels and bladder, and acid reflux. She also lost the ability to speak, stopped walking and no longer made eye contact. Jodie suffered with near-constant pain and was inconsolable. And with growing numbers of vaccine-damaged children being reported (and then swept under the rug), doctors merely diagnosed Jodie with autism.

Science Teacher May Be Disciplined for Urging Students Be Informed of Vaccination Risks
by Kate Raines
Published March 9, 2017
In March 2015, science teacher Timothy Sullivan approached public health nurses administering vaccines to high school students at his school in Waterford, Ontario, Canada and asked whether they had appropriately informed the students about the potential risks of the shots they were giving. He noted that the teenagers were required to give informed consent and the nurses, therefore, had the obligation to make sure they were fully informed.1
Mr. Sullivan also made the point that, “some of the components in the vaccines were deemed ‘toxic’ in his science lab.” The nurse allegedly answered that they alerted parents and teens about common vaccine risks like fever or soreness at the injection site and she claimed that “a screening tool allows nurses to assess if there are any underlying conditions that would trigger a more serious reaction among students” and added that “the risk of death from receiving a vaccine is so very, very rare.”1
Who Decides What Facts Can or Cannot Be Taught?
The complaints against Mr. Sullivan appear to have focused on how disruptive his comments were to the planned vaccination event rather than the accuracy or inaccuracy of his views. The reality of vaccine risks for death and serious side effects has been acknowledged by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). All of these organizations have stated that vaccines may cause adverse reactions and death in a small percentage of patients. According to the CDC, “although immunization has successfully reduced the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccination can cause both minor and, rarely, serious side effects.”2
The CDC acknowledges the “possible” though “rare” association between “hepatitis B vaccine and anaphylaxis; measles vaccine and a) thrombocytopenia and b) possible risk for death resulting from anaphylaxis or disseminated disease in immunocompromised persons; diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and pertussis vaccine (DTP) and chronic encephalopathy; and tetanus-toxoid-containing vaccines and a) Guillain-Barre syndrome, b) brachial neuritis, and c) possible risk for death resulting from anaphylaxis.”2

Doctor Tearfully Apologizes to Parents (and Says NO to Vaccinating the Elderly and Vaccinating Newborns)
February 28, 2017
It’s so moving to hear this doctor apologize, also see what he thinks about vaccinating the elderly and vaccinating newborns?
You know how when someone wrongs you, even if they can’t fix the wrong, just to hear an apology feels better?  Having them acknowledge what happened, and bonus points if they really seem to care, means the world.  That must have been how Polly, from the Vaxxed movie, felt when Dr. Anthony Phan, an internal and geriatric integrative medicine doctor from Johns Hopkins, offered her a tearful and heartfelt apology for all she and other parents have been through with their vaccine-injured kids.
You can watch the entire video below, wait ’til you hear his common sense coming through!  He talks about the flawed data coming from the CDC and how he prayed asking God for insight, started reading more and learning about integrated medicine, and then stopped vaccinating his patients.  He searched for the Truth, and then STOPPED vaccinating.

Vaccine court confirms healthy 13 year-old boy was made tetraplegic by the chicken pox vaccine
Tuesday, January 03, 2017 by: Mike Adams
(Natural News) The debate about whether vaccines cause severe damage and harm to children is over. Anyone claiming vaccines cause no harm is willfully ignorant of reality, as U.S. courts have concluded, over and over again, that vaccines provably cause serious and permanent damage to children.
The latest such ruling to garner attention concerns a 13 year-old boy who was made tetraplegic (loss of function in all four limbs) following a chicken pox vaccination. After five years of battling the secretive “vaccine court” — run by Health and Human Services and founded for the purpose of denying vaccine damaged children due process via the regular court system — the evidence of harm from the vaccine was so irrefutable and conclusive that HHS had no choice but to declare the boy’s injuries were caused solely by the vaccine.
This federal courts document reveals:
On November 28, 2014, Respondent filed an amended report pursuant to Vaccine Rule
4(c) in which she concedes that Petitioner is entitled to compensation in this case. Specifically, Respondent agrees that “a preponderance of the evidence establishes that petitioner’s TM was caused-in-fact by the administration of his August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine, and that petitioner’s TM is not due to factors unrelated to the administration of the August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine.”  Amended Rule 4 Report at 1-2.
A special master may determine whether a petitioner is entitled to compensation based upon the record.  A hearing is not required … In light of Respondent’s concession and a review of the record, the undersigned finds that Petitioner is entitled to compensation.  This matter shall now proceed to the damages phase.
Vaccine proven to have seriously harmed this child… now the payoff phase begins so the vaccine industry can keep maiming other children with impunity

Mumps Outbreak Tied to Vaccine Shortfalls
By Jade Scipioni Published March 15, 2017 Health Care FOXBusiness
A CDC spokesperson tells FOX Business that while it is investigating many possible factors contributing to the increase of reported cases, it is looking into the possibility that the “protective effect of the vaccine decreases over time.”
“There hasn’t been any evidence to suggest that the MMR vaccine does not protect against circulating mumps strains. However, outbreaks have occurred in highly-vaccinated communities, particularly in close-contact settings, despite the protection afforded by mumps vaccination,” Ian Branam, a CDC press officer, tells FOX Business.
According to the CDC, MMR-II prevents most, but not all, cases of mumps and complications caused by the disease. It says two doses of the vaccine are 88% effective at protecting against mumps; one dose is 78% effective.
However, Paul Offit, MD and director of the Vaccine Education Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, says a third dose of the vaccine may be needed in light of the current reported outbreaks, and may be a quicker solution than developing a new and stronger vaccine.
“Could you make a better mumps vaccine which has no side effects and has better protection? I think that you could, but it would probably be a two-decade long effort and it would mean a company like Merck, which is the sole manufacturer in the United States, will essentially be competing against themselves — so I don’t see that happening. I think the more likely scenario is that you give out a third dose of the current vaccine at 11 or 13 years of age,” Offit tells FOX Business.
The CDC says it is already considering whether a third dose should be added to the current immunization guidelines.

Vaccine Mechanisms in Autism
Background

1983: A healthy-born child according to the CDC vaccination schedule receives 6 vaccines in the first 15 months of life. The autism rate is 1:10,000.
2017: A healthy-born child according to the CDC vaccination schedule receives 23 vaccines in the first 15 months of life. The autism rate is 1:68.

This means in the last 30 years, the prevalence of autism has risen 14,700% [3]. The projected costs for the United States would rise to more than $1 trillion by 2025 [4] if prevalence continues to rise at rates seen over last decade alone.
I want to tell you how autism comes about. Just to clarify: I am not against the concept of vaccination. I am against the toxins contained within vaccines. If you think the vaccine industry has tested all the ingredients on humans, you are deep in the woods. I invite you to examine the scientifically documented data and discover that what is happening is beyond concerning. Vaccines ARE linked to autism. And this is why.
A vaccine’s contents are injected into the muscle. From there it elicits a specific response from the immune system. Additives called adjuvants are put in vaccines to make the immune system response more pronounced and therefore more effective. The objective of adding adjuvants to vaccines is that adjuvants prime protective memory CD8 T-cells for future exposure. [29]. When your immune system is responding to the vaccine ingredients, it creates memory cells that will be ready to kill the real bacteria or virus when exposed to it in the future [6]. Vaccines have tiny particles of the virus or bacteria in it that your immune system recognizes as full blown real viral or bacterial threat.

Yale School of Medicine: Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Vaccinations
March 17, 2017
by Lori M. Gregory
Health Impact News
There are questions being raised about children who are diagnosed with neuropsychiatric disorders and their association with vaccinations, according to the results of a pilot case study published in Frontiers in Psychiatry/Child & Adolescent Psychiatry [1] last month.
The study, which was conducted by researchers from the Yale University School of Medicine and the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine Department of Public Health Sciences, is based on the principle that the immune system plays a key role in normal brain development and in the pathobiology of several neuropsychiatric disorders.  As a result, the autoimmune and inflammatory disorders affecting the central nervous system have been found to be “temporally associated with the antecedent administration of various vaccines.”
Data Suggests Link Between Influenza Vaccine and Anorexia Nervosa Diagnosis
Researchers examined the association between the administration of vaccines in children ages 6-15 years old who have been diagnosed with conditions such as anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), tic disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder.
What they discovered was that there is data to suggest that children who were newly diagnosed with anorexia nervosa were more likely to have been vaccinated in the previous 3 months than those in the control group.  They also found that children vaccinated with the Influenza vaccinations during the prior 3, 6, and 12 months were also associated with incident diagnoses of anorexia nervosa, OCD, and an anxiety disorder.
Several other associations were also significant, including correlations between hepatitis A with anorexia nervosa and OCD; hepatitis B with anorexia nervosa, and meningitis with anorexia nervosa and chronic tic disorder.
The principal findings suggest that children with OCD, anorexia nervosa, anxiety disorder, and tic disorder were more likely to have received influenza vaccine during the preceding year.
U.S. Special Claims Court Had 1188% Increase in Payouts for Influenza Vaccine Injury
The discovery of the possible link between the influenza vaccine and neurological disorders is significant in this study, especially in light of the fact that the U.S.Special Claims Court had a 1188% increase in payouts to Americans for influenza vaccine injury from 2014-2015 [2, 3].
(Because Congress passed a law in 1986 providing pharmaceutical companies who make vaccines with immunity from prosecution, Americans seeking compensation for vaccine injury must instead sue the U.S. Government in special claims court.)
United States Court of Federal Claims

US Vax Court Sees 400% Spike in Vaccine Injuries, Flu Shot Wins Top Honors for Biggest Payout
Vaccine injury cases are on the rise people, so if you’ve got your head in the sand and you haven’t been paying attention, it’s time to wake up.
Here’s a little background for those of you just getting started.
Ronnie Reagan… almost 30 years ago to the day, the 40th president of the United States signed away the rights of Americans to sue vaccine makers, replacing them with a law that forces families who have suffered vaccine injury or death to sue the U.S. government instead of a pharmaceutical company.
As a result, special masters from the United States Special Claims Court, also known for our purposes as the vaccine court, are given full authority as judge with no jury to decide the fate of Americans who have had the unfortunate ‘luck’ to be stricken by a vaccine injury — which can range from chronic, mild symptoms to death.
Once a year, this non-traditional court provides the public with a glimpse into its inner workings, by issuing an annual report on its website — a ritual that happens every January.  The report is sent to the President of Congress, otherwise known as the Vice President of the United States, where it is intended to serve as a bell weather monitoring reactions the American public may be having to vaccinations that are increasingly becoming forced by government mandates around the country.
Great, right?  Accountability in action?
Wrong.
The report, which is consistently ignored by mainstream media/politicians/health officials and the CDC, lies dormant on the reports page of the U.S. Special Claims Court website.
No headlines, no press release, no analysis, no alert the media, no nothing.

10 radiation-emitting cell phone brands you need to throw out immediately

10 radiation-emitting cell phone brands you need to throw out immediately

There are two types of electromagnetic radiation:

  • Ionizing – high frequency and high energy (x-rays, cosmic rays, etc.

  • Non-ionizing – low frequency and low energy (radio frequency, power frequency, etc.)

Cell phones transmit a form of non-ionizing radiation from their antennas. This transmittance is how wireless calls and WiFi connections occur. Body tissues close to it absorb this energy. (1)
The radiation is increased during active phone calls, but the exposure continues long afterward. A study was published in 2009 that measured the pelvic bone density in 150 men, all of whom wore their phones attached to their belt for 15 hours a day for about six years. The scientists found the bone mineral density was decreased on the side of the pelvis where the cell was carried.
In one case, a woman with no predisposition for cancer became afflicted with multi-focal breast cancer. Her cancer specialists connected the dots, and the pattern and distribution of the cancerous cells outlined the shape of her cell phone. This seemed peculiar enough; then the woman explained that she is continuously tucking her phone into her bra.

Autism spectrum disorders linked to mast cell activation

Autism spectrum disorders linked to mast cell activation
A review of the latest autism spectrum disorder (ASD) research by National Institutes of Health funded mast cell researcher and head of molecular immunopharmacology and drug discovery at Tufts, Dr. Theoharis Theoharides*, shows that mast cell activation may be the root cause of ASD in some children. Other recent studies have found a link between autism and maternal and childhood food allergies, asthma and eczema, all of which involve mast cells  (and histamine). Autism is believed to affect as many as one in 45 children in the United States, but the lack of reliable  biomarkers has made the development of treatments difficult. The annual cost of autism was recently estimated at over $250 billion in 2015.
*Dr. Theoharides is in the top five percent most quoted authors in scientific papers.
His review, published recently in the journal Translational Psychiatry, points out that mast cells are located in all tissues, including the thalamus and hypothalamus, which regulate emotions.
On a personal note not relating to the specifics of ASD behaviour but rather the regulation of emotions by mast cells generally, I have experienced what some have dubbed “masto-rage” or “mast cell rage”, and can I can tell you first hand that mast cell activation messes with your ability to think straight, interact with people you love in a rational way, and can cause violent (and often illogical) outbursts.
Again – I am not saying this is ASD behaviour, it’s just an explanation of my personal experiences of mast cell activated hypothalamic and thalamic processes.
Dr. Theoharides’ findings show that the expression of inflammatory molecules interleukin (IL-1B, IL-6, IL-17) and tutor necrosis factor (TNF) is increased in the brain, spinal fluid and blood of some autism patients, while others are released in times of stress. Some with elevated IL-6 and TNF may benefit from treatment with the bioflavonoid luteolin (which is something I take daily) which is a supplement that prevents mast cells from releasing histamine and other inflammation  (like interleukins) from being released into the blood stream.
A study published in the journal Cellular Molecular Biology points out that histamine causes consistent blood-brain  barrier “opening”/permeability.  Didn’t know histamine is found in  the brain? It’s found there, and we have histamine receptors in the heart, breasts, and pretty much everywhere else. That’s why it’s important if we lack the DAO and HNMT histamine degrading enzymes (which can be a genetic issue), or if we have activated mast cells  (histamine is found in these immune system cells), then we might benefit eat an overall anti-inflammatory and low histamine or histamine-balanced diet.

Scientists in China Create New Vaccines Using Body Parts From Nine Aborted Babies

Scientists in China Create New Vaccines Using Body Parts From Nine Aborted Babies
Due to dwindling capacity for existing aborted fetal cell lines to self-replicate, scientists in China have developed a new aborted fetal cell line, WALVAX 2 that will be used for viral vaccine production.  The existing cell lines, MRC-5 and WI-38 are currently used in MMR, Varicella, Hepatitis-A, Shingles, some rabies and some polio vaccines.
WALVAX  2 is taken from the lung tissue of a 3 month gestation female who was ultimately selected from among 9 aborted babies.  The scientists noted how they followed specific guidelines to mimic WI-38 and MRC-5 in selecting the aborted babies, ranging from 2-4 months gestation.  They further noted how they induced labor using a “water bag” abortion to shorten the delivery time and prevent the death of the fetus to ensure live intact organs which were immediately sent to the labs for cell preparation.
According to the studies published earlier this year in the NIH Pub Med, scientists noted that Walvax-2 cells replicated more rapidly than MRC-5 cells, attained greater population doubling and performed better or equal to the existing cell lines for culturing viruses.
In 1964 Leonard Hayflick introduced what is known as the “Hayflick limit” – how all normal cells have a finite lifespan and limited capacity to replicate before going into senescence and eventually, become unstable and form tumors. (L. Hayflick, The Limited In Vitro Lifetime of Human Diploid Cell Strains, Experimental Cell Research, Vol 37, 1964)  Attempts to immortalize these cells to extend their lifespan have likewise introduced problems with tumor formations, as in aborted fetal cell line PER C6, introduced into the US in 2001.

Study: Characteristics and viral propagation properties of a new human diploid cell line, walvax-2, and its suitability as a candidate cell substrate for vaccine production
Abstract
Human diploid cell strains (HDCSs), possessing identical chromosome sets known to be free of all known adventitious agents, are of great use in developing human vaccines. However it is extremely difficult to obtain qualified HDCSs that can satisfy the requirements for the mass production of vaccines. We have developed a new HDCS, Walvax-2, which we derived from the lung tissue of a 3-month-old fetus. We established primary, master and working cell banks successfully from reconstituted frozen cells. Observations during the concurrent propagation of Walvax-2 and MRC-5 cells revealed differences in terms of growth rate, cell viability and viral sensitivities. Specifically, Walvax-2 cells replicated more rapidly than MRC-5 cells, with Walvax-2 cells attaining the same degree of confluence in 48 hours as was reached by MRC-5 cells in 72 hours. Moreover, Walvax-2 cells attained 58 passages of cell doublings whereas MRC-5 reached 48 passages during this period. We also assessed the susceptibility of these cells to rabies, hepatitis A, and Varicella viruses. Analysis of virus titers showed the Walvax-2 cells to be equal or superior to MRC-5 cells for cultivating these viruses. Furthermore, in order to characterize the Walvax-2 cell banks, a series of tests including cell identification, chromosomal characterization, tumorigenicity, as well as tests for the presence of microbial agents, exogenous viruses, and retroviruses, were conducted according to standard international protocols. In conclusion, results from this study show that Walvax-2 cell banks are a promising cell substrate and could potentially be used for the manufacturing of HDCVs.

Forsaking God For the Sake of Science
“What have you done? Listen: your brother’s blood cries out to me…” (Gn 4:10)
There are times in the history of mankind when we must take great pause and examine the path we have taken in the past and more importantly, what path we will take in the future to correct the twisted route that brought us here to begin with.
Such was the case where social elites, physicians and scientists in their zeal for power and glory saw nothing wrong in deliberately ending a fellow human being’s life for the so-called betterment of others who were deemed worthy of preserving.
This report will take us back to one of the most heinous, shameful eras in history beginning in the early 1900’s – back to a time that few reading this article will even know existed in the United States.  And incredibly, what you are about to read was considered perfectly acceptable behavior in most circles.
The year was 1910 and a man by the name of Harry H. Laughlin was making the news with his influential positions as Director of the newly formed Eugenics Record Office which was funded by the Harriman and Rockefeller families and the Carnegie Institute.  Known by both friends and foes as one of the most racist, anti-Semitics of the early 20th century, Laughlin was appointed to head the “master race project” which sought to weed out the undesirables in society. [1]
In his report to the Committee in 1914, Laughlin noted in no uncertain terms that, “defective parents must be stopped from having any children at all” and then described his proposed means of accomplishing that.  In brief:
“Hence the selection of certain potential parents, and the elimination of others, is the only basis of a possible effective eugenics program of any sort….. That the present apparent tendency of society proposes to sterilize and thus cut off the lines of descent only of persons amply demonstrated in each particular case to be unable to understand, or, if understanding, morally unable to inhibit or control himself or herself in a manner preventing the continuance of his or her unworthy traits.  To permit such individuals to reproduce their kind is neither merciful nor just.”[2]
Within a decade, Laughlin introduced his state-level “Model Eugenical Sterilization Law” in 1922 requiring the forcible sterilization of those deemed unfit to breed. These would include the “feeble-minded”, mentally impaired, epileptics, the deaf, the blind, the homeless and chronic offenders of the law. By 1931 twenty eight states had enacted the legislation.

Hep B Vaccine Damages The Liver It Is Supposed To Protect

Hep B Vaccine Damages The Liver It Is Supposed To Protect
“According to Hippocratic tradition, the safety level of a preventive medicine must be very high, as it is aimed at protecting people against diseases that they may not contract.” ~ Marc Girard, Autoimmune hazards of hepatitis B vaccine.
Startling new research published in the journal Apoptosis indicates that hepatitis B vaccine, which is designed to prevent Hepatitis B virus-induced damage to the liver, actually causes liver cell destruction.
In the study titled “Hepatitis B vaccine induces apoptotic death in Hepa1-6 cells,” researchers set out to “…establish an in vitro model system amenable to mechanistic investigations of cytotoxicity induced by hepatitis B vaccine, and to investigate the mechanisms of vaccine-induced cell death.”1
They found the hepatitis B vaccine induced a “loss of mitochondrial integrity, apoptosis induction, and cell death” in liver cells exposed to a low dose of adjuvanted hepatitis B vaccine. The adjuvant used was aluminum hydroxide, which is increasingly being identified as a contributing cause of autoimmune disease in immunized populations.
The discovery that the hepatitis B vaccine damages the liver (hepatotoxicity) confirms earlier findings (1999) that the vaccine increases the incidence of liver problems in U.S. children less than 6 years old by up to 294% versus unvaccinated controls.
Another study published in the journal Hepatogastroentology in 2002, observed that Hepatitis B vaccination was statistically associated with gastrointestinal reactions including: hepatitis, gastrointestinal disease and liver function test abnormalities in comparison to other vaccine control groups.

Hepatitis B vaccination was statistically associated with gastrointestinal reactions including: hepatitis, gastrointestinal disease and liver function test abnormalities.

Study CONCLUSIONS:
Hepatitis B vaccination was statistically associated by chi 2 analysis with gastrointestinal reactions including: hepatitis, gastrointestinal disease and liver function test abnormalities in comparison to our vaccine control groups. The reaction rate observed is outweighed by the benefits of the vaccine. Further analysis is needed to determine the mechanisms by which hepatitis B vaccine is associated with gastrointestinal reactions.

Hepatitis B vaccine induces cell death in liver cells and mouse liver.
Study:
Vaccines can have adverse side-effects, and these are predominantly associated with the inclusion of chemical additives such as aluminum hydroxide adjuvant. The objective of this study was to establish an in vitro model system amenable to mechanistic investigations of cytotoxicity induced by hepatitis B vaccine, and to investigate the mechanisms of vaccine-induced cell death.
We conclude that exposure of Hepa1-6 cells to a low dose of adjuvanted hepatitis B vaccine leads to loss of mitochondrial integrity, apoptosis induction, and cell death, apoptosis effect was observed also in C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line after treated with low dose of vaccine (0.3, 0.1, 0.05 μg/ml). In addition In vivo apoptotic effect of hepatitis B vaccine was observed in mouse liver.

Mind Control by Cell Phone

May 7, 2008 |By R. Douglas Fields

Electromagnetic signals from cell phones can change your brainwaves and behavior. But don’t break out the aluminum foil head shield just yet.

Hospitals and airplanes ban the use of cell phones, because their electromagnetic transmissions can interfere with sensitive electrical devices. Could the brain also fall into that category? Of course, all our thoughts, sensations and actions arise from bioelectricity generated by neurons and transmitted through complex neural circuits inside our skull. Electrical signals between neurons generate electric fields that radiate out of brain tissue as electrical waves that can be picked up by electrodes touching a person’s scalp. Measurements of such brainwaves in EEGs provide powerful insight into brain function and a valuable diagnostic tool for doctors. Indeed, so fundamental are brainwaves to the internal workings of the mind, they have become the ultimate, legal definition drawing the line between life and death.

Brainwaves change with a healthy person’s conscious and unconscious mental activity and state of arousal. But scientists can do more with brainwaves than just listen in on the brain at work-they can selectively control brain function by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). This technique uses powerful pulses of electromagnetic radiation beamed into a person’s brain to jam or excite particular brain circuits.

Although a cell phone is much less powerful than TMS, the question still remains: Could the electrical signals coming from a phone affect certain brainwaves operating in resonance with cell phone transmission frequencies? After all, the caller’s cerebral cortex is just centimeters away from radiation broadcast from the phone’s antenna. Two studies provide some revealing news.

The first, led by Rodney Croft, of the Brain Science Institute, Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, tested whether cell phone transmissions could alter a person’s brainwaves. The researchers monitored the brainwaves of 120 healthy men and women while a Nokia 6110 cell phone—one of the most popular cell phones in the world—was strapped to their head. A computer controlled the phone’s transmissions in a double-blind experimental design, which meant that neither the test subject nor researchers knew whether the cell phone was transmitting or idle while EEG data were collected. The data showed that when the cell phone was transmitting, the power of a characteristic brain-wave pattern called alpha waves in the person’s brain was boosted significantly. The increased alpha wave activity was greatest in brain tissue directly beneath to the cell phone, strengthening the case that the phone was responsible for the observed effect.
Alpha Waves of Brain Alpha waves fluctuate at a rate of eight to 12 cycles per second (Hertz). These brainwaves reflect a person’s state of arousal and attention. Alpha waves are generally regarded as an indicator of reduced mental effort, “cortical idling” or mind wandering. But this conventional view is perhaps an oversimplification. Croft, for example, argues that the alpha wave is really regulating the shift of attention between external and internal inputs. Alpha waves increase in power when a person shifts his or her consciousness of the external world to internal thoughts; they also are the key brainwave signatures of sleep.      Cell Phone Insomnia If cell phone signals boost a person’s alpha waves, does this nudge them subliminally into an altered state of consciousness or have any effect at all on the workings of their mind that can be observed in a person’s behavior? In the second study, James Horne and colleagues at the Loughborough University Sleep Research Centre in England devised an experiment to test this question. The result was surprising. Not only could the cell phone signals alter a person’s behavior during the call, the effects of the disrupted brain-wave patterns continued long after the phone was switched off.

“This was a completely unexpected finding,” Horne told me. “We didn’t suspect any effect on EEG [after switching off the phone]. We were interested in studying the effect of mobile phone signals on sleep itself.” But it quickly became obvious to Horne and colleagues in preparing for the sleep-research experiments that some of the test subjects had difficulty falling asleep.

Horne and his colleagues controlled a Nokia 6310e cell phone—another popular and basic phone—attached to the head of 10 healthy but sleep-deprived men in their sleep research lab. (Their sleep had been restricted to six hours the previous night.) The researchers then monitored the men’s brainwaves by EEG while the phone was switched on and off by remote computer, and also switched between “standby,” “listen” and “talk” modes of operation for 30 minute intervals on different nights. The experiment revealed that after the phone was switched to “talk” mode a different brain-wave pattern, called delta waves (in the range of one to four Hertz), remained dampened for nearly one hour after the phone was shut off. These brainwaves are the most reliable and sensitive marker of stage two sleep—approximately 50 percent of total sleep consists of this stage—and the subjects remained awake twice as long after the phone transmitting in talk mode was shut off. Although the test subjects had been sleep-deprived the night before, they could not fall asleep for nearly one hour after the phone had been operating without their knowledge.

Although this research shows that cell phone transmissions can affect a person’s brainwaves with persistent effects on behavior, Horne does not feel there is any need for concern that cell phones are damaging. The arousal effects the researchers measured are equivalent to about half a cup of coffee, and many other factors in a person’s surroundings will affect a night’s sleep as much or more than cell phone transmissions.

“The significance of the research,” he explained, is that although the cell phone power is low, “electromagnetic radiation can nevertheless have an effect on mental behavior when transmitting at the proper frequency.” He finds this fact especially remarkable when considering that everyone is surrounded by electromagnetic clutter radiating from all kinds of electronic devices in our modern world. Cell phones in talk mode seem to be particularly well-tuned to frequencies that affect brainwave activity. “The results show sensitivity to low-level radiation to a subtle degree. These findings open the door by a crack for more research to follow. One only wonders if with different doses, durations, or other devices, would there be greater effects?”

Croft of Swinburne emphasizes that there are no health worries from these new findings. “The exciting thing about this research is that it allows us to have a look at how you might modulate brain function and this [look] tells us something about how the brain works on a fundamental level.” In other words, the importance of this work is in illuminating the fundamental workings of the brain-scientists can now splash away with their own self-generated electromagnetic waves and learn a great deal about how brainwaves respond and what they do.
