Measles Explained — Vaccinate or Not?

  • Published: 24 February 2015
  • Everybody is talking about Measles – but what does the virus actually do in the body? Is it really so harmful that you need a vaccination? We go deep into the body of an infected person and see what Measles does and how the immune system reacts to it!

      this video is produced by peopel who are promoting vaccines for profit, while avoiding mentioning children who died from a vaccine,

      the narrator of this video should release an applogy to the families of children officially accepted to be killed or harmed by vaccines - and explain that he underdtands that getting a vaccine puts a child at risk and that he understands tht vaccines can and do kill and injure children.
      but the narrator is pathetic creep and who enjoys profiting from teh misery and injury of families.

      every type of vaccine has a risk of death - as stated on teh CDC website, vaccine side effects page, further information link

                                        What's the injury rate for the hepatitis vaccine part of the MMR vaccine?
                                        Why are vaccines treated differently than other drugs, concerning side effects?

                                          Correct Vojta.  In fact there is currently a clinical trial beginning regarding a new potential hepatitis vaccine.  As you alluded to = it is a randomized double-blind clinical trial.  So vaccines undergo the same clinical trial standards as other medications while bearing in mind that a clinical trial is set up based upon the type of information you are trying to obtain and the product. 

                                          So for a new vaccine we see a randomized double-blind trial - yet when comparing perhaps two different existing vaccines a different approach might be done much the same as meta-analysis study as an example looks only at previous data from earlier studies toward some new end rather than at actual people. Have a nice day.

                                          MMR stands for measles, mumps and rubella, there is no hepatitis part and vaccines are not treated differently, they undergo multi-stage clinical trial as any other drug.

                                              Vaccines are full of poisons ... don't be fooled. Big pharma makes money when you are sick thats why they put in toxins

                                                _"mortality if in America zero people die as a result of the measles and 113 die from the shot to prevent still think its safe"_

                                                Try actually reading what others write for a change David. Things tend to make more sense when that happens.  So follow the white rabbit Neo:

                                                1 - you do not live in a vacuum.  One more time = you do not live in a vacuum. 
                                                2 - because of #1 = you *ARE* at risk from *INFECTIOUS* diseases no matter what.
                                                3 - so (hopefully) understanding that very simple precept - let's move on shall we. 
                                                4 - so in the time before we had a measles vaccine we used to see - each and every year - in the US literally hundreds of thousands of cases of measles.  Of those as noted before = tens of thousands would end up hospitalized.  Of those = thousands would develop encephalitis and all the potential adverse effects that results in such as deafness or other neurocognitive impairments - again each and every year.  Lastly as noted hundreds would ultimate die = again each and every year.  *THIS* is historical fact David = it really happened.
                                                5 - meanwhile as also noted we saw on average for the years of 2006-2016 an average of 19 people a year reacting negatively to receiving the MMR so that they sought compensation via filing a claim with the VICP.  Note I said *ADVERSE REACTION* and not "death" = example of you "reading into" things to only see your desired outcome.  Those cases did not automatically infer someone died = merely they reacted bad enough to file a claim.  In the case of measles such a reaction would most likely represent they developed encephalitis such as measles causes in susceptible people and were hospitalized = with some ultimate result.

                                                So one more time.  Compare tens thousands of people hospitalized in a given year as a result of measles = now compare that to 19 people in a given year.  Which one represents the greater societal damage let along what is the cumulative costs associated with treating those hundreds of thousands infected with thousands ending up in a hospital????  Hospitalization is certainly not cheap while sick children must be cared for = which means parents missing work or paying some babysitter to watch their sick kids as they recover = all of which adds to the overall damage associated with measles.

                                                Moral of the story:  so as we can clearly see = vaccines represent a vastly better outcome as well as are exponentially less costly in the long run compared to simply allowing infectious diseases to burn through the land as they once did.  Your seeing only what you apparently want to see does not alter the facts David as it is as noted = a matter of historical record.  You are at risk no matter what with vaccination programs greatly reducing that risk.  You need to do a lot more homework.  Have a nice day.  

                                                p.s. - vaccine makers sell vaccines to governments = who then accept the responsibility for those side effects which can result from their employment as the clinical trials done before licensure bore out.  That makes the government the "end user" = and the end user is ultimately responsible for what happens. Accordingly the US government set up the VICP to deal with such eventualities.  So long as vaccines are correctly made per all applicable regulations governing their manufacture = the government assumes responsibility for their usage.

Because they have a financial incentive to lie. The medical field tells you vaccines are safe. They have a financial incentive to lie. But its much bigger involving billions of dollars. Enough to buy politicians, they buy huge ads on tv and control whats put on the news, often times their executives head the who can say the truth? A few isolated drs speaking out in lectures? And how does anyone see these lectires if they are not there in person? On tye internet. Everybit of information you have ever heard yourself is on the internet. Seek the truth Vary Olla.

                                                Also your comment about how many people died from measles is off. And when you say things like how many got pneumonia after measles, then you have to look at how many people got diseases after mmr like autoimmune diseases for example. Vaccines afe full of toxins so the pharmaceutical companies can sell you more product.

                                              I believe some vaccines are good. Have reservations about others and the high number of vaccines required. Sounds like too much.

                                                        Not a big deal. I had it when I was child, chicken pox and other I am immune to all of this.

                                                          Correct eeeaten.  Your surviving infectious diseases does not make them benign = it makes you *LUCKY.*  Measles as an example kills around 100,000 people each year worldwide.  Meanwhile things such as chickenpox - while it can sometimes result in the child being hospitalized - may not initially threaten you.  The problem comes later in life. 

                                                          Once you catch chickenpox = the Varicella virus is now dormant within you.  As you age it is possible for that virus to reactivate causing a very painful condition called Shingles.  If the virus infects the nerve tracts around your eyes it can cause blindness.  *THAT* is why there is a chickenpox vaccine = to prevent those susceptible people from developing Shingles later in life. 

                                                          Moral of the story:  anecdotal evidence is of course nothing more than evidence of anecdotes.  You must look at the big picture here. So you may be immune to chickenpox = but you are now at risk for Shingles.  Between the two Shingles is definitely the worst to have.   Have a nice day.

                                                                  Measles represents one of those few infectious diseases Soraya which impacts - not just the cells in your body - but the actual immune system itself as noted.  That results in your body having great difficulty in defeating the pathogen because it hampers those immune cells - which are required to defeat an infection - from doing their jobs.  That is like removing guards from a prison to allow the inmates to run amok = no one around to stop them.

                                                                  So we see a similar paradigm by the way with HIV.  The HIV virus also inhibits immune functioning which in turn limits the ability of the body to fight off infections.  So the MeV virus which invades your respiratory tract cells also attacks the dendritic cells in your lymph nodes to hamper their ability to produce antibodies.  That results in the individual - even if they survive measles - having limited immunity post-measles infection for a period of weeks to months = making them susceptible to secondary infections. 

                                                                  Eventually the body replaces those damaged dendritic cells but it takes time as noted.  Meanwhile you remain at risk for other infections as a result of lower immune capacity.  Have a nice day.

Yesterday in my forties, I took my last of the two shots to complete my vaccination. Don't be an idiot, get yourself vaccinated!! If not for yourself, for EVERYONE AROUND YOU!

                                                                injecting a vaccine is not only putting a chidl at risk - but definitley causing harm to a child.

                                                                most people do what theyre influenced to do without question - which is why they line their children up to get vaccinated, even though so many medics and parenst and children are sharing their stories of vaccine damage - and vaccine damage settlements are paid out on the millions all the time.
                                                                vaccines keep people sick - if anyone cares for their child they should consider providsing a healthy diet and avoidng toxic vaccines.

You are goddamn bleeding from your dark pustules in your body, and literally half the population of Europe peasents died, and it couldn't spread fast enough, which shows how bad plagues or viruses can be when they are left to their own devices. Also, there is a thing called herd immunity, when the population of a global group isn't old or young enough to be vaccinated, and the people around them are vaccinated to give them a "Immunity", and we aren't the ones to blame when 80% of the population isn't protecting them anymore! I'm so fucking done with being a internet warrior, it's unreal. See you in hell when nobody believes in vaccines.

You don't even list all of the metals in vaccines, and the viruses they put out are damaged and aren't harmful enough to kill you, but it sends out chemicals to your immune system to activate them, thus letting them create memory cells, which kills the virus you had a vaccine on with specific antibodies and interfere with their ability to replicate, effectively making them sterilized.

It killed millions of American Indians, you clearly don't have any knowledge on the subject, and only did a 5 minute google search.

You may not want to put them through the vaccination process, but it will ensure that your child will be safe from Measles. But compared to them getting Measles, and getting an immunity that way, there is always that risk of permanent brain damage, or killing their brain, in turn killing them. Please don't twist my words into me threatening to harm your child, cause I'm saying this to try and convince you to let your child to get the Measles vaccine. Report this comment if you want, but before you do just do some research on Measles and look at the risks of your child getting the disease, cause if you're going to take the risk and not let them have the vaccine, they are most likely going to get Measles, and if that happens, there is that slight chance that they may lose their life to the virus. Please think about what I have said and consider giving them the vaccine it will help not just your child (or children) but it will also help eradicate the virus permanently.
