Did you have “wild measles” as a kid, not the measles strain found in Big Pharma measles vaccines?
I certainly did; that was in the 1940s, when Moms took their kids to “measles parties” so their children could contract a childhood “rite of passage,” immune system strengthening, infectious disease to acquire life-long immunity.
I had an itchy rash; looked like a polka-dotted kid; stayed home from school for a week of fun with board games, plus eating anything I wanted, so my little body could have enough nutrition to heal as quickly as possible. Proper nutrition, sewer sanitation, potable water and refrigeration were responsible for the demise of most communicable infectious diseases in the USA, since those diseases ‘disappeared’ before vaccines were invented. However, those diseases currently are ‘rampant’ in countries were those infrastructures are lacking. Thus the frightening disease statistics HHS/CDC/FDA like to scare people with.
By the way, most of those childhood diseases apparently were about fine-tuning kids’ developing immune systems, in my opinion. Nature obviously designed those diseases to provide life-long immunities, which could be passed down from Mother to Child during pregnancy and birth, something now denied due to what’s called “adaptive response immunity” supposedly provided by modern-day vaccines, which is an oxymoron.
As I write this Op-Ed, I checked the stats for measles in the USA, which were 981 cases as of June 3, 2019. Heck, 981 measles cases, back when I was a kid, was ‘nothing’. Almost every child contracted measles during the springtime of each year. It was expected; Moms prepared for it and knew how to treat it; not today!
“Before widespread use of the measles vaccine, an estimated 3 to 4 million people got measles each year in the United States, along with an estimated 400 to 500 deaths and 48,000 hospitalizations,” the CDC said. https://www.usnews.com/news/national-news/articles/2019-06-03/number-of-measles-cases-in-us-981
[However, can we really trust and believe those CDC stats, when we know about CDC’s fraudulent practices involving consensus science; vested interest in the vaccine patents CDC and FDA own; and Big Pharma’s hoodwinking the U.S. Congress into passing the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which basically was a bailout from product liability lawsuits.]
“The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34) was signed into law by United States President Ronald Reagan as part of a larger health bill on Nov 14, 1986.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Childhood_Vaccine_Injury_Act
What’s happened is Big Pharma has been able to bang their “kettle drums of propaganda” so as to drown out most real science as published in authentic medical journals, which never is taken seriously by federal health agencies, e.g., HHS, CDC and FDA, but in favor of consensus science, the current “gold standard” at CDC/FDA. Who are the CDC and FDA supposed to be working for: corporations or citizens’ wellbeing?
One of the more dramatically interesting vaccinology facts is the measles vaccine was ‘invented’
In 1963, John Enders and colleagues transformed their Edmonston-B strain of measles virus into a vaccine and licensed it in the United States. In 1968, an improved and even weaker measles vaccine, developed by Maurice Hilleman and colleagues [at Merck & Co.], began to be distributed.
However, two charts below graphically tell a dichotomous story when it comes to vaccines taking credit for eliminating various diseases.
