Is Measles A Real Theat Or More Pharma Fear Mongering


Is Measles a Real Threat or More Pharma Fear Mongering?

The mainstream media and pro-vaccine advocates in public health and government would have you believe we are at serious risk of a measles epidemic as a result of “vaccine hesitancy.” There is no doubt that there is an increase in parents questioning the vaccine narrative. Recent polls reveal that 1 in 6 parents say they are “really against” vaccinating their children, a four-fold increase from 2019. There has also been a significant increase in the proportion of Canadians who oppose mandatory childhood vaccination and say it should be the parent’s decision. The question is whether the risk to the health and safety of our children is “vaccine hesitancy” or whether the risk is blind faith in the vaccine industry.

The vaccine industry would have you believe that all vaccines are safe and effective, vaccines are responsible for the significant decline in mortality in the last century, and vaccines are necessary for our children’s health. The evidence supports none of these statements. These statements are marketing propaganda masquerading as science. The vaccine industry would also have you believe that measles is a serious illness that puts our children’s lives at risk and that if everyone simply vaccinated their children, then measles would be eradicated. These statements are also not supported by the evidence.

A Childhood Rite of Passage

Prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine in 1963, measles was considered a childhood rite of passage. Virtually all children had measles. It was a time to stay home and to be cared for by one’s parents. They even made a Brady Bunch TV program about the benefits of having measles. Those of us old enough to have experienced measles are mystified by the drama and fear-mongering surrounding measles today.

For those who have only experienced measles through pharmaceutical marketing campaigns, measles presents as a whole-body rash, complete with fever, congestion, a cough, and pinkeye that lasts about a week. Measles is “highly contagious,” and before vaccination, almost all children contracted measles.

The Measles Vaccine

When the measles vaccine was introduced in 1963, the promise was that one shot would confer life-long immunity and that measles would be eradicated by 1967. We now know that neither of these claims were true. The measles vaccine does not confer life-long immunity, as evidenced by the “need” for boosters, and outbreaks regularly occur in fully vaccinated populations. Measles is still with us today after more than 60 years of vaccination.

What is not considered in the rush to inject every child is what is lost because of vaccination. Vaccine advocates rarely admit that recovery from natural exposure to measles confers life-long immunity. More importantly, mothers who have been vaccinated for measles do not transfer long-lasting maternal antibodies to their infants that protect the infant in the first few months of life. That means that infants of vaccinated mothers are at increased risk.

Also not acknowledged is that while measles was once a serious illness in past centuries, the mortality from measles declined by 98.5% and was no longer considered a public health threat BEFORE the vaccine was introduced. To describe measles as a “killer disease” is fraudulent!

Is the Measles Vaccine Safe?

When the mainstream media and vaccine industry claim that the vaccine is “safe,” they are misleading the public. Would the public agree the measles vaccine is “safe” when, as of May 31, 2023, there have been more than 109,499 reports of measles vaccine reactions made to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in the United States, including 547 deaths?

Further, a US Health and Human Services study acknowledged that less than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported. That means the number of injuries and deaths could realistically be 100 times the reported numbers. If so, do 10,949,900 reactions and 54,700 deaths sound safe? The undisputed fact is that the safety of the measles vaccine has not been proven against a true placebo. Thus, the claims that the vaccine has been proven safe are false.

There is substantial evidence that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine is causing neurological damage in some children and that administering the MMR vaccine before three years of age can cause regressive autism.  Autism has become an epidemic, with more than 1 in 36 children diagnosed. But it seems the media thinks measles is a bigger threat than autism.

Dr. Richard Moskovitz, a family physician with more than 50 years of clinical experience, deems the measles vaccine as “an unhealthy reprogramming of the immune system that trades off the acute, vigorous responses to infection” in favour of “weaker, but ongoing, chronic responses that have rendered us a lot sicker than we would have been had we simply left well enough alone.” 

The Rise of Vaccine Hesitancy

The vaccine industry, which includes the media, would have us believe that “vaccine hesitancy” is a danger to society. We see it otherwise. At Vaccine Choice Canada, we view the increase in parents asking questions about vaccine safety, efficacy, and necessity as an indication that parents are doing their due diligence. The reality is that almost all modern diseases originate from a disturbed immune system. No other drug intervenes in the immune system as intensively as a vaccine, and the effects of vaccination are irreversible.

The vaccine industry greatly exaggerates the risk of experiencing diseases targeted by vaccines. Measles is a classic example of the hype common with vaccine proponents. The reality is that permanent injury and death from measles are exceedingly rare in a developed country like Canada. Neil Rau, an infectious disease specialist, and Dr. Richard Schabas, MD, Ontario’s former Chief Medical Officer, stated in an October 2018 article titled “Stop the Hysteria Over Measles Outbreaks” that “The borderline hysteria fueled by the media and public health that greets a few cases is unwarranted … At current rates, Canada can expect to see a death from acute measles about once every hundred years or so.”

Vaccine hesitancy is not a “threat to global health,” as the World Health Organization (WHO) claims. Instead, it is responsible parents doing their due diligence and finding that the vaccine industry’s claims that vaccines are safe, effective, and necessary are wanting. And that is what the vaccine industry is afraid of.
