1. Vaccine behind boom in whooping cough cases

    Junk vaccine causing whooping cough boom

    It was a disease we thought we’d gotten rid of…but now, it’s come roaring back in a big way.

    We’re seeing more cases of whooping cough now than when Eisenhower was in office.

    In 2012, there were a staggering 48,000 cases of the highly contagious bacterial infection, which is characterized by severe hacking cough, trouble breathing, and vomiting. It may even become fatal.

    And you’re not going to believe what’s behind the increase: booster shots.

    That’s right, a new study in the latest issue of Pediatrics blames the recent outbreak of whooping cough on the very vaccination that’s supposed to stop the infectious bacterial disease.

    The study found that kids ages 10 to 16 had some of the highest rates of whooping cough, even though virtually all of them had been vaccinated for the disease!

    The truth is that the DTaP vaccine is effective only 69 percent of the time even in the first year, when the vaccine is supposed to be at its strongest. And it’s so weak in the long-term that kids have to get a series of six booster shots (called Tdap) starting at age 11 or 12.

    Even then, those boosters are only considered “moderately” effective…and last only one year each. By the third year, the effectiveness all but completely disappears – a phenomenon known as “waning immunity.”

    Now, although it isn’t as effective, the DTaP vaccine is much safer than its predecessor, which could give young kids high fevers, seizures, and other neurological side effects.

    You can choose to stick your little ones with needles “just in case” of random exposure to the highly contagious bacteria. But injecting them with stuff regularly probably won’t protect them from all-out whooping cough outbreaks.

    Is it possible that another whooping cough vaccine may be developed that’s both safe and more than “fairly” effective? Sure.

    But I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.

  2. Uncle Sam is spending millions chasing fictional diseases

    Feds funding war on phony disease

    Will Rogers said that the only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets.

    And if we're looking for a new national slogan, that's got my vote.

    How long are you going to keep breaking your back while Uncle Sam breaks the bank? He's skimming 25 cents off every dollar you earn, with the same tired nonsense about how we need to arm our troops... educate our children... and keep enough cops on the street.

    And if you think that's where the shopping list ends, I have a taxpayer-funded bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. Because the truth is, if you REALLY knew what our government was spending your cash on, you'd never fork a red cent over to the feds again.

    Case in point, right now our government is pumping millions of your dollars into a shadowy agency you've never heard of -- and you'd better believe your local Congressman never mentions it in his stump speech.

    This agency isn't taking down Mexican drug cartels or fighting the global war on terror -- it's developing cures for pandemics that don't exist.

    In the most insane waste of taxpayer dollars since we used psychics to spy on the Soviets, Uncle Sam is pumping more than $400 million a year into the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). And BARDA's entire mission seems to be to hand out grants to Big Pharma for drugs you'll never use, to treat diseases you'll never catch.

    In fact, Novartis just used a BARDA grant to develop a vaccine for H7N9 bird flu -- a vaccine our government could start stockpiling immediately unless you and I stop them.

    Novartis says its new wonder vaccine works like a charm -- but the truth is, we'll never know. That's because in the history of mankind, no bird flu has EVER caused a pandemic. You have a better chance of being abducted by aliens than dying during some bird flu apocalypse.

    This isn't some emerging health threat. It's a taxpayer-funded boondoggle. Even in China, the birthplace of H7N9, the virus is spreading slower than frozen peanut butter. It's affected fewer than 150 people in a nation of 1.3 billion, and 80% of those folks survived.

    Yet Uncle Sam is STILL getting ready to stockpile H7N9 vaccine just WEEKS after an independent report found he wasted BILLIONS storing up Tamiflu.

    It's time to end the nonsense -- and get BARDA's budget off of the federal shopping list forever. Because at the end of the day, you don't have a snowball's chance in hell of catching H7N9 -- but Uncle Sam is going to bill you for the cure anyway.

  3. Worthless measles vaccine triggers outbreak

    Measles vaccine failure puts mainstream medicine on the spot It's your patriotic duty. It's your solemn responsibility to your fellow citizens and to future generations of Americans. No, I'm not talking about joining the military. And I'm sure not talking about feeding Uncle Sam's bloated budget with your hard-earned tax dollars. I'm talking about getting your vaccines! Because the second...
  4. Misleading Tamiflu study could cost the world billions

    Researchers are using fuzzy math to encourage governments everywhere to invest billions in a flu drug that rarely helps anybody.
  5. Forced flu vaccination program a proven failure

    Connecticut is tossing personal freedom out the window and forcing flu vaccines on preschoolers. So why can't scientists find ANY evidence the program is working?
  6. Flu patch does nothing to improve vaccine's failures

    A patch even a Boy Scout wouldn't want You've pulled down the shades. You've stocked up on bottled water, batteries, and six months' worth of frozen dinners. You're prepared to hunker down all winter... all spring if you have to... just to keep from dealing with those flu vaccine crazies waiting to jab you in the arm at every drug...
  7. Researchers demand extra chance to murder your daughter

    It's already been linked to epilepsy and dozens of deaths, and its own inventor won't stand behind it any more. But Swedish researchers want to start giving girls 50% more of the dangerous HPV vaccine Gardasil.
  8. Last desperate push for flu shots

    If you need the flu shot to avoid the flu, how come no one's getting sick?
  9. New risks linked to swine flu vaccine

    Remember how "safe" the untested and rushed-to-market swine flu shot was supposed to be? Turns out not so much -- just as I told you from day one.
  10. Vaccines linked to blood disease

    This is what passes for good news for the pro-vaccine crowd: Only SOME childhood immunizations can cause a serious blood disease. Isn't that reassuring?
