Air Pollution Linked To Measles Incidence, Proving Immune Status Is Vital In Disease Risk
Posted on: Sunday, May 14th 2017 at 5:45 am
Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder
The idea that measles virus is solely responsible for causing measles infection, and that vaccination alone is the way to prevent it, has been undermined by a new Chinese air pollution study.
A new study published in the journal Environmental Research reveals that exposure to air pollution is significantly associated with measles incidence in China. This is consistent with the view that infection is not solely determined by exposure to a virus particle but also involves the immune status of the subject which depends on various nutritional and environmental factors, including the immunosuppressive function of air pollution. In other words, it’s not just the “germ” alone but the terrain that determines disease.
In the new study titled, “Is short-term exposure to ambient fine particles associated with measles incidence in China? A multi-city study,” Chinese researchers examined the relationship between short-term exposure to ambient particles with a diameter of less than ≤2.5µm (i.e. 2.5 microns thick) and measles incidence in China. They noted that rapid economic development has resulted in “severe particulate matter (PM) air pollution.”
Their method was to collect data on the daily number of new measles cases and concentrations of ambient particles (≤2.5µm) from 21 cities in China between October 2013 and December 2014 and to analyze data to ascertain the effects at the national scale.
Study – Is short-term exposure to ambient fine particles associated with measles incidence in China? A multi-city study.
A 10µg/m3 increase in PM2.5 at lag 1day, lag 2day and lag 3day was significantly associated with increased measles incidence [relative risk (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) were 1.010 (1.003, 1.018), 1.010 (1.003, 1.016) and 1.006 (1.000, 1.012), respectively]. The cumulative relative risk of measles associated with PM2.5 at lag 1-3 days was 1.029 (95% CI: 1.010, 1.048). Stratified analyses by meteorological factors showed that the PM2.5 and measles associations were stronger on days with high temperature, low humidity, and high wind speed.
We provide new evidence that measles incidence is associated with exposure to ambient PM2.5 in China. Effective policies to reduce air pollution may also reduce measles incidence.
Nursing Student Dismissed for Refusal to Lie about Vaccines Wins Early Court Victory
By Paul Webber – June 5, 2017
“Nurses Need to Obey the Patient’s Directives, Not Threaten or Lie”
Nurse is dismissed from Baker College in Michigan for questioning vaccines
The nurse files suit against Baker College
Baker College attempts to dismiss the case; Judge denies request
Michigan law protects patient rights
Back in 2013, nursing student Nichole Rolfe, claims she was asked by her Baker college instructors to threaten patients who opted to not vaccinate. The threats included ‘giving them false information’ and even ‘withholding state medical assistance’ to those who questioned whether or not they’d vaccinated. Last week, a judge declined Baker college’s request to dismiss the suit and prevents any severe alterations to the suit. According to olcplc.com, Michigan patients most certainly do have the right to choose (and without intimidation).

Study – Vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella in children
We included five randomised controlled trials (RCTs), one controlled clinical trial (CCT), 27 cohort studies, 17 case-control studies, five time-series trials, one case cross-over trial, two ecological studies, six self controlled case series studies involving in all about 14,700,000 children and assessing effectiveness and safety of MMR vaccine. Based on the available evidence, one MMR vaccine dose is at least 95% effective in preventing clinical measles and 92% effective in preventing secondary cases among household contacts.Effectiveness of at least one dose of MMR in preventing clinical mumps in children is estimated to be between 69% and 81% for the vaccine prepared with Jeryl Lynn mumps strain and between 70% and 75% for the vaccine containing the Urabe strain. Vaccination with MMR containing the Urabe strain has demonstrated to be 73% effective in preventing secondary mumps cases. Effectiveness of Jeryl Lynn containing MMR in preventing laboratory-confirmed mumps cases in children and adolescents was estimated to be between 64% to 66% for one dose and 83% to 88% for two vaccine doses. We did not identify any studies assessing the effectiveness of MMR in preventing rubella.The highest risk of association with aseptic meningitis was observed within the third week after immunisation with Urabe-containing MMR (risk ratio (RR) 14.28; 95% confidence interval (CI) from 7.93 to 25.71) and within the third (RR 22.5; 95% CI 11.8 to 42.9) or fifth (RR 15.6; 95% CI 10.3 to 24.2) weeks after immunisation with the vaccine prepared with the Leningrad-Zagreb strain. A significant risk of association with febrile seizures and MMR exposure during the two previous weeks (RR 1.10; 95% CI 1.05 to 1.15) was assessed in one large person-time cohort study involving 537,171 children aged between three months and five year of age. Increased risk of febrile seizure has also been observed in children aged between 12 to 23 months (relative incidence (RI) 4.09; 95% CI 3.1 to 5.33) and children aged 12 to 35 months (RI 5.68; 95% CI 2.31 to 13.97) within six to 11 days after exposure to MMR vaccine. An increased risk of thrombocytopenic purpura within six weeks after MMR immunisation in children aged 12 to 23 months was assessed in one case-control study (RR 6.3; 95% CI 1.3 to 30.1) and in one small self controlled case series (incidence rate ratio (IRR) 5.38; 95% CI 2.72 to 10.62). Increased risk of thrombocytopenic purpura within six weeks after MMR exposure was also assessed in one other case-control study involving 2311 children and adolescents between one month and 18 years (odds ratio (OR) 2.4; 95% CI 1.2 to 4.7). Exposure to the MMR vaccine was unlikely to be associated with autism, asthma, leukaemia, hay fever, type 1 diabetes, gait disturbance, Crohn’s disease, demyelinating diseases, bacterial or viral infections.
The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate. The evidence of adverse events following immunisation with the MMR vaccine cannot be separated from its role in preventing the target diseases.
Potential Carcinogens, Neurotoxins, and Seizure-Causing Chemicals in the Flu Vaccine (full breakdown of ingredients)
by Yelena Sukhoterina | September 20, 2016
Formaldehyde: A chemical usually used in building materials, as well as industrial fungicide. In medical laboratories, it is used as a preservative. Long-term effects have not been fully studied, as the National Cancer Institute admits. A study of funeral industry workers found a link between formaldehyde and myeloid lukemia, and professionals such as anatomists and embalmers reported increased risks of leukemia and brain cancer when working with formaldehyde.
Octylphenol ethoxylate (Triton X-100): is a product created by a few chemical companies including DOW. It is used for “wetting, detergency, superior hard surface, metal cleaning and excellent emulsification” in paints, coatings, oilfield chemicals, textiles, and industrial cleaners. In 1995 an article raised a question if this chemical is toxic to the reproductive system. In the fact sheet for Triton, the chemical is listed as possibly toxic to specifically the female reproductive system, and mutagenic for mammalian somatic cells (may change DNA of skin, bones, blood and connective tissue cells.
Thimerosal (standard dosage multi-dose vial): is a mercury-based preservative used in flu shots and some childhood vaccines. The ingredient has caused a lot of controversy since 1990s. It is a neurotoxin; it can cause nerve damage, and FDA knows of numerous cases of mercury poisoning caused by thimerosal.
Other ingredients in Fluzone are: sodium phosphate-buffered isotonic sodium chloride solution and gelatin

More Than 100 Seniors Died After Receiving This Flu Shot Given By Pharmacies
by Yelena Sukhoterina | January 6, 2016
As it happens every winter, the marketing push for receiving a flu shot continues. CVS is offering a 20% shopping pass when you get your flu shot. They are also marketing a high-dose vaccine, which is of course more profitable for the manufacturer and the pharmacy, but there are plenty of reasons to be wary of it — especially for seniors.
Fluzone® High-Dose is an injectable vaccine, specifically approved for people ages 65 and older. Manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur, this shot contains three flu strains and four times more antigen (substance that causes an immune response) than regular flu shots, claims CVS Pharmacy (Rite Aid also offers it and admits that “more studies are being done” to see whether it actually offers an improvement at all).
The pharmacy does admit that the vaccine is not recommended for anyone who has experienced an adverse reaction (especially Guillain-Barré syndrome) to vaccines in the past.
But between their marketing campaigns and promoting a 20% shopping coupon, they omitted a vital piece of information: 105 seniors died after taking part in two Fluzone high-dose vaccine trials, and 91 died after getting the regular Fluzone vaccine.
Vaccines contain many toxic ingredients, but they vary by manufacturer.
Other flu shots are made from different potentially toxic ingredients:
Afluria (Trivalent) contains:
Monobasic sodium phosphate (MSP): when used in high doses during colon cleansing, it has caused acute phosphate nephropathy, and permanent impairment of renal functions. It has also caused seizures, and cardiac arrhythmias.
Dibasic sodium phosphate and monobasic potassium phosphate: Phosphates are often used in food as preservatives, acidifying, and emulsifying agents. German researchers concluded that it is “damaging to health,” especially to the renal function, and is linked to cardiovascular and overall mortality.
Potassium chloride: has been most commonly linked to digestive problems and vomiting, but in severe cases it can lead to severe allergic reactions, chest pains, irregular heartbeat, confusion, and paralysis.
Calcium chloride: may lead to cardiovascular issues.
Sodium taurodeoxycholate: have been associated to promote tumor growth, particularly in pancreas, colon, and throat, studies show.
Neomycin sulfate: in rare cases has been linked to drowsiness, loss of hearing, difficulty breathing, rash, and weakness.
Polymyxin B: is an antibiotic, whose side effects include neurotoxic and nephrotoxic reactions: rising blood levels, dizziness, apnea, fever, and headache.
Mercury: a heavy metal responsible for poisoning, and damage to many organs leading to severe illnesses, including severe insomnia, and neurological disorders.
Beta-propiolactone is a carcinogen and a possible toxin to liver, skin, respiratory tract, and gastrointestinal tract.
Aluminum Should Now Be Considered a Primary Etiological Factor in Alzheimer’s Disease
In this paper, I have summarized the experimental and largely clinical evidence that implicates aluminum as a primary etiological factor in Alzheimer’s disease. The unequivocal neurotoxicity of aluminum must mean that when brain burdens of aluminum exceed toxic thresholds that it is inevitable that aluminum contributes toward disease. Aluminum acts as a catalyst for an earlier onset of Alzheimer’s disease in individuals with or without concomitant predispositions, genetic or otherwise. Alzheimer’s disease is not an inevitable consequence of aging in the absence of a brain burden of aluminum.
EVIDENCE NOW POINTS TO ALUMINUM AS A CONTRIBUTORY FACTOR IN ALL FORMS OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE
Aluminum is unquestionably neurotoxic  and it is accepted as the cause of encephalopathies in, for example, individuals undergoing renal dialysis  and similarly in individuals who have received aluminum-based prostheses . There are myriad ways by which aluminum can exert toxicity; its Al3 + (aq) ion is highly biologically reactive, but to do so and thereby bring about change in a biochemical system, the aluminum content of any compartment, such as a tissue, must achieve a toxic threshold or burden . However, aluminum-induced encephalopathies are not Alzheimer’s disease, though they may share some similar neuropathological hallmarks ; they are acute conditions whereas Alzheimer’s disease might now be considered as an acute response to chronic intoxication byaluminum .
Shocker: study unwittingly links vaccines to autism
Jun 14 2017
by Jon Rappoport
A new study links fever in pregnant women to an increased risk of autism in their babies.
MedicalNewsToday (6/13/17): “A study of a large group of children found a link between raised risk of autism spectrum disorder and their mothers reporting fever during pregnancy. The link was strongest with fevers reported during the second trimester.”
“The study – led by the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City, NY – also found that the risk of autism increased in line with the number of fevers reported after 12 weeks of gestation – rising to 300 percent higher risk [of autism] with reports of three or more fevers.”
Next, here is a one-word item from the World Health Organization web page, Vaccine Safety Basics. The item comes under the heading of “minor vaccine reactions,” and applies to every vaccine: the reaction is FEVER.
Pregnant woman gets vaccines. Vaccines cause fevers. Fevers are linked to autistic babies.
Here is a CDC list of vaccines given to pregnant women, under various conditions: HepA, HepB, Flu, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis), meningococcal, polio, Rabies. Fever, as a typical and minor adverse effect, would be expected and ignored for ANY AND ALL of these vaccines.
Accepting the finding of the new study, cited above—routine vaccination for pregnant women is linked to an increased risk of autism in their babies.
That’s it in a nutshell.
Fever in pregnancy tied to higher risk of autism
By Catharine Paddock PhD
published Tuesday 13 June 2017
The risk of developing autism spectrum disorder is stronger among children whose mothers experienced fever during pregnancy.
A study of a large group of children found a link between raised risk of autism spectrum disorder and their mothers reporting fever during pregnancy. The link was strongest with fevers reported during the second trimester.
The study – led by the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City, NY – also found that the risk of autism increased in line with the number of fevers reported after 12 weeks of gestation – rising to 300 percent higher risk with reports of three or more fevers.
In the journal Molecular Psychiatry, the researchers say that their findings support the idea that infection in pregnancy – and the way in which the immune system responds to it – may play a role in the development of some cases of autism.
Prenatal fever and autism risk
Some studies suggest that prenatal infection increases risk of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). This study was undertaken in a prospective cohort in Norway to examine whether we could find evidence to support an association of the prenatal occurrence of fever, a common manifestation of infection, with ASD risk. Prospective questionnaires provided maternal exposure data; case status was established from clinical assessments and registry linkages. In a large, prospectively ascertained cohort of pregnant mothers and their offspring, we examined infants born greater than or equal to32 weeks for associations between fever exposure in each trimester and ASD risk using logistic regression. Maternal exposure to second-trimester fever was associated with increased ASD risk, adjusting for presence of fever in other trimesters and confounders (adjusted odds ratio (aOR), 1.40; 95% confidence interval, 1.09–1.79), with a similar, but nonsignificant, point estimate in the first trimester. Risk increased markedly with exposure to three or more fever episodes after 12 weeks’ gestation (aOR, 3.12; 1.28–7.63). ASD risk appears to increase with maternal fever, particularly in the second trimester. Risk magnified dose dependently with exposure to multiple fevers after 12 weeks’ gestation. Our findings support a role for gestational maternal infection and innate immune responses to infection in the pathogenesis of at least some cases of ASD.

Monsanto Admits Injecting Glyphosate a Hazard – Too Bad It’s In Vaccines
Tue 9:30 am UTC, 13 Jun 2017
posted by Gordon
Monsanto Toxicologist Donna Farmer recently made the following statement regarding the toxicity of Glyphosate:
“I’ll give you an example of one of the studies,” she said during the debate, which was aired as part of The Doctors, an award-winning TV show. “They actually injected the Round-Up formulation into the abdomen of the animals and they did have an effect. But that’s not a relevant route of exposure for somebody who is going to be spraying that herbicide. So that’s what we look at and the regulatory agencies look at and, like the other bodies at the World Health Organization. IARC only looks and says, “If I inject it there’s a hazard.” So there’s different ways we look at the data.”
Interestingly enough, Glyphosate is a known vaccine contaminant in vaccines deemed “acceptable” by the FDA.
This list of vaccine ingredients indicates the culture media used in the production of common vaccines and the excipients they contain. Most vaccines listed are produced on cultures containing either egg, which are allowed to contain 0.05 mg/Kg glyphosate residues, or Bovine serum albumin, which are from cows allowed to eat fodder that contain 500 mg/Kg glyphosate residues. Also listed are substances used in the manufacturing process.
Hospital CEO Wins Major Court Victory After Accusing CNN of False Reporting
by Rachel Stockman | 5:31 pm, February 15th, 2017
Those who accuse CNN and other mainstream media outlets of “fake news” will probably revel in a recent decision by a federal judge in Atlanta, Georgia. While Judge Orinda Evans didn’t all out declare that CNN was peddling in falsehoods, she did take aim at the network in an initial judgment in favor of a former hospital CEO who sued CNN accusing them of purposely skewing statistics to reflect poorly on a West Palm Beach hospital. Judge Evans didn’t mince words in her 18-page order allowing the case to move forward, and dismissing CNN’s attempt to get it thrown out of court.
Davide Carbone, former CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN after they aired what he claims were a “series of false and defamatory news reports” regarding the infant mortality rate at the hospital. CNN’s report said the mortality rate was three times the national average. However, Mr. Carbone contends that CNN “intentionally” manipulated statistics to bolster their report. He also claims that CNN purposely ignored information that would look favorable to the hospital in order to sensationalize the story.
“In our case, we contended that CNN essentially made up its own standard in order to conduct an ‘apples to oranges’ comparison to support its false assertion that St. Mary’s mortality rate was 3 times higher than the national average. Accordingly, the case against CNN certainly fits the description of media-created ‘Fake News.’” said Carbone’s attorney L. Lin Wood, in a statement to LawNewz.com.
Wood says that as a result of CNN’s story Carbone lost his job and it became extremely difficult for him to find new employment in the field of hospital administration.
“False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences. Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit,” Wood said.
On Wednesday, Federal District Judge Orinda Evans ruled that the case could move forward, even ruling that she found that CNN may have acted with “actual malice” with the report — a standard necessary to prove a defamation claim.
“The Court finds these allegations sufficient to establish that CNN was acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its report, i.e., with ‘actual malice,” the order reads. CNN had tried to get the case dismissed.
We’ve reach out to CNN for comment, and will update this story accordingly.

Amazon is one step closer to building private cloud services for the Central Intelligence Agency, after a federal judge rejected a call from IBM to re-open bidding on the agency’s $600 million contract.
On Monday, as reported by Bloomberg and others, U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge Thomas Wheeler ruled in favor of Amazon in the case, according to an order posted to the court’s online docket. This could pave the way for Amazon to start work on the CIA cloud services — which would provide computing power, storage, and other online services to the agency — but IBM has said it will appeal the court’s decision.
In mid-March, word arrived that Amazon had inked a $600 million deal with the CIA, but IBM protested the contract, arguing it was unfairly awarded to Amazon. In June, in response to IBM’s protest, the government’s General Accounting Office called on the CIA to reopen bidding. A month later, Amazon responded with a lawsuit.
The contract is significant not only because these massive government deals typically go to old-school tech giants such as IBM and Microsoft, but because this would be the first time Amazon would build private services in a third-party data center. Amazon is the king of the cloud game, but the company has always offered its cloud services from its own data centers, providing large pools of computing power available to a wide range of users. It had long indicated that it would not build private services for corporations or government agencies.
Now that Amazon is willing to build private services, it could signal a new era of greater competition in the cloud game — especially in the government sector.
World War II (WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, was a global war that was underway by 1939 and ended in 1945. It involved the vast majority of the world’s nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, with more than 100 million people serving in military units. In a state of “total war”, the major participants placed their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities at the service of the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust and the only use of nuclear weapons in warfare, it resulted in 50 million to over 73 million fatalities. These deaths make World War II by far the deadliest conflict in human history. The Empire of Japan aimed to dominate East Asia and was already at war with the Republic of China in 1937, but the world war is generally said to have begun on 1 September, 1939 with the invasion of Poland by Germany and subsequent declarations of war on Germany by France and Britain. From late 1939 to early 1941, in a series of campaigns and treaties, Germany formed the Axis alliance with Italy, conquering or subduing much of continental Europe. Following the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, Germany and the Soviet Union partitioned and annexed territories between themselves of their European neighbours, including Poland. The United Kingdom and the other members of the British Commonwealth were the only major Allied forces continuing the fight against the Axis, with battles taking place in North Africa as well as the long-running Battle of the Atlantic. In June 1941, the European Axis launched an invasion of the Soviet Union, giving a start to the largest land theatre of war in history, which tied down the major part of the Axis’ military forces for the rest of the war. In December 1941, Japan joined the Axis, attacked the United States and European territories in the Pacific Ocean, and quickly conquered much of the Western Pacific. The Axis advance was stopped in 1942, after Japan lost a series of naval battles and European Axis troops were defeated in North Africa and, decisively, at Stalingrad. In 1943, with a series of German defeats in Eastern Europe, the Allied invasion of Italy, and American victories in the Pacific, the Axis lost the initiative and undertook strategic retreat on all fronts. In 1944, the Western Allies invaded France, while the Soviet Union regained all of its territorial losses and invaded Germany and its allies. During 1944 and 1945 the United States defeated the Japanese Navy and captured key Western Pacific islands. The war in Europe ended with the capture of Berlin by Soviet and Polish troops and the subsequent German unconditional surrender on 8 May 1945. Following the Potsdam Declaration by the Allies on 26 July 1945, the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima on 6 August, and Nagasaki on 9 August. With an invasion of the Japanese archipelago imminent, and the Soviet Union having declared war on Japan by invading Manchuria, Japan surrendered on 15 August 1945, ending the war in Asia and cementing the total victory of the Allies over the Axis. World War II altered the political alignment and social structure of the world. The United Nations (UN) was established to foster international cooperation and prevent future conflicts. The great powers that were the victors of the war—the United States, the Soviet Union, China, the United Kingdom, and France—became the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. The Soviet Union and the United States emerged as rival superpowers, setting the stage for the Cold War, which lasted for the next 46 years. Meanwhile, the influence of European great powers started to decline, while the decolonisation of Asia and Africa began. Most countries whose industries had been damaged moved towards economic recovery. Political integration, especially in Europe, emerged as an effort to stabilise postwar relations and fight more effectively in the Cold War.
