BROOKLYN, N.Y. — New York City officials on Tuesday declared a public health emergency and ordered mandatory measles vaccinations to halt an outbreak concentrated among ultra-Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn, putting in place the broadest vaccination order in the United States in nearly three decades.
The order is the latest flashpoint in a nationwide battle to try to stop the second biggest flare-up of the disease since 2000 – spurred by travel to hot spots like Israel experiencing its own outbreak and widespread misinformation about vaccines that has frightened a generation of parents who have never witnessed the ravages of one of the most contagious diseases on Earth firsthand….
They could try being honest about the science, the dangers and the true efficacy of MMR, which has laid the groundwork for an epidemic among the masses of vaccinated people whose immunity has faded, unlike those who actually had the measles when they were kids. Monocultures (of vulnerable people) are likely to become more saturated with active and communicable infections than would be the case in a population containing a mixture of vulnerable and naturally immune people. Are we really better off from a public health standpoint? Or are we simply “addicted” to an MMR treadmill? How convenient for merck.
And then there’s the autism link, due to homologous recombination with the human fetal DNA in MMR:
The human DNA from the vaccine can be randomly inserted into the recipient’s genes by homologous recombination, a process that occurs spontaneously only within a species. Hot spots for DNA insertion are found on the X chromosome in eight autism-associated genes involved in nerve cell synapse formation, central nervous system development, and mitochondrial function (Deisher, 2010Deisher, T. 2010. Personal communication.). This could provide some explanation of why autism is predominantly a disease of boys. Taken together, these data support the hypothesis that residual human DNA in some vaccines might cause autism….
