In VACCINE SCIENCE REVISITED we give readers an insight into early attempts to treat infectious diseases – in particular how the doctors of yesteryear tried to combat the ravages of smallpox, that extremely contagious and deadly virus for which there is no known cure.

Here’s an excerpt from chapter one. (Research paper link numbers retained):

On June 27th, 1833, a 21-year-old man suffered from severe head and back pain. One day later, he was still in great pain and red spots covered his body and face. Smallpox.

By morning, Surgeon Henry George1 had come to see him. The surgeon wrote in his notebook:

“His mind was wandering; his limbs and voice tremulous; his tongue dry, and covered with a brownish-red crust [. . .].” 2

The man’s face was completely swollen from pustules. Surgeon George fed him beef-tea and arrow-root and gave him medication. This helped the young man sleep for a few hours during the night.

The morning after, the swelling was worse and the pustules had merged together and blanketed his face. By July 1st, five days after the illness started, his entire body had turned a bluish-gray color. The pustules covering his body were completely confluent. Calamine, which was often used to reduce smallpox scarring, was applied to his body.

His seizures were so intense that it took five people to hold him down. The seizures continued throughout his illness. By July 9th, nearly two weeks since he became sick, Surgeon George described the young man as:

“[…] the most horrid spectacle that can be imagined; lies, and while lying,

trembles from head to foot; his countenance suspiciously wild, and expressive of the darkest intentions; […].”3

From other accounts of what smallpox does to a person, we can assume the pain was unbearable. Infected skin cells shedding as the virus struggled for survival. With the skin peeling off, the virus escaped to re-enter the body via such means as saliva. Once in the saliva, the germ infected the digestive system, giving it access to all organs.

The pustules grew to the size of boils, and any physical touch excruciating. The slightest movement would have felt like the skin being torn off. Still, through all this, the young man stayed fully alert.

Surgeon George continued to explain how a couple of days later, the outer layer of skin had completely detached itself from the rest of his face. Although the surgeon did not describe his patient being any pain, we cannot help but wonder how painful the separation of skin from his face must have been. The nerves would have been exposed without a layer of protection.

Surgeon George described infections under both big toes and in one of the heels. The infections oozed a rancid bloody discharge. The smell, he described as “dreadful”.

Three weeks later, on August 30th, the surgeon notes that his patient had:

“[…] violent flushing of the face; he is now pale, cold, a degree of stupor hanging over him; very dilated pupil; cannot tell the hour, and seems unconscious of your presence [. . .] he does not now walk erect; in moving, his motions are very hurried, and his body considerably bent.”4

The surgeon continues to treat him with medication and wine. His last notes end on September 2nd with the patient more pleasant and reading the newspaper. The illness had consumed two full months of his life. He had survived the smallpox attack. He would live the rest of his life with major scarring to his face and body.

Stories of severe illnesses are not uncommon throughout our human history. Neither are the stories of humans’ innate desire for survival. We fight to prevent diseases and we fight to heal in the aftermath.

Desperate measures have been the groundwork for development of various techniques to ward off and to treat diseases. Even before our understanding of pathogens, or disease-causing germs, we were hard at work battling them. Often alchemy and superstitious practices became the main focus.

One such technique was described by a Chinese talisman, referred to in the book Chu yu shih-san kho5, on how to exorcize the smallpox out of a child:

“[…] write the magic character on paper with red cinnabar ink, burn it to ashes, and have the child take them in liquid.”6

Later on, these practices became more medicine-oriented. An example of such a source that explains various variolation, or inoculation techniques is I tsung chin chien (The Golden Mirror of Medicine). This is a collection of all available treatises, gathered together in 1739 by the Imperial College of Physicians in Peking. This collection contained four ways to prevent smallpox – as listed here:

“Aqueous inoculum method (shui miao fa). Allow a moistened plug of cotton-wool to imbibe an aqueous extract of a number of pulverised scabs (chia), and insert it into a nostril of the child to be inoculated.

“Dry inoculum method (han miao fa). Use slowly dried scabs, grind them into a fine powder, and blow it into the child’s nostrils by a suitable tube of silver.

“Smallpox-garment method (tou i fa). Wrap the child or the patient in a garment which has been worn by a smallpox sufferer during the illness.

“Smallpox lymph method (tou chiang fa). Impregnate a plug of cotton-wool with lymph from the perfectly matured pustules of a smallpox patient, and insert this into the nostril of the child to be inoculated.”7

The Chinese knew how virulent the virus being used for the inoculum was. This was very important as it dictated its safety and efficacy. A man by the name of Yü Thien-chhih8 explained how inoculates were only collected from patients with mild symptoms. They collected only from patients who had a mild strain of the virus. Any other more virulent or epidemic-type strains were considered too dangerous to use and would kill people, rather than immunize them.

In addition to the potency factor of various strains, Yü Thien-chhih mentions a monetary benefit to inoculation in a collection called Sha tou chi chieh from 1727:

“[. . .] you have to pay two or three pieces of gold for enough to inoculate one person. Physicians who want to make some profit pass it through the children of their own relatives. [. . .] Others eager for money steal away the scabs from [severe] smallpox cases and use the material directly. It is called pai miao (ruined inoculum). In such cases there will be 15 deaths in 100 patients.”9

As a measles outbreak dominates headlines in the US and a state of emergency (over measles) has been declared Washington, it’s timely to draw attention to a chapter devoted to this infectious viral disease in our new release book VACCINE SCIENCE REVISITED.

Excerpts from the chapter follow:

39

MMR, the viral riot

“Love is like the measles; we all have to go through it.” –Jerome K. Jerome (English writer and humorist)   

 

Measles, mumps and rubella viruses cause acute infections that are dependent on humans for survival and replication.

The measles virus enters your body as you inhale. When inhaled through the respiratory tract it multiplies silently in the tissues for a week then goes into the lymph nodes and eventually enters the bloodstream.  The body fights hard to produce antibodies and once it overcomes the illness, you are immune for life… 

Measles virus has the ability to suppress the immune system and it’s common to get secondary infections like ear infection. These secondary infections are usually treated successfully with antibiotics.

As with measles, the mumps virus is one of those viruses best contracted during childhood. When adult men get mumps, it can cause orchitis, which is an inflammation of the testicles and has been associated with infertility.

Rubella is normally a rather mild disease.  It has been considered a typical childhood disease throughout history, but turns into a very serious disease for a pregnant woman when she becomes infected.  If the virus spreads to the fetus, it can cause a spontaneous abortion and severely disturb the fetal developmental process which is known as congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).

A large study conducted in Japan discovered that those who had measles and mumps during childhood were significantly less likely to die from heart attacks and strokes later in life.  Another study showed that for each additional childhood illness, such as measles, mumps or rubella, the less likely the person was to suffer acute coronary events…

…our innate immune system (first responders) does not work with antibodies. It works mostly with something called natural killer (NK) cells and is often vitamin D dependent. Our innate immunity is the most important immune defense we have.

We know that people with antibodies to specific diseases may still succumb to those diseases. We also know when you have a community-acquired infection, such as measles or mumps, it engages both sides of the immune system. The Th2 cells create the antibodies and the Th1 cells are defined by knowing the difference between you and foreign substances that are not a part of you. It is also known that certain viruses, such as the measles virus, powerfully suppress immunity.

A study done in Faroe Islands showed that once somebody became sick with the measles, they stayed immune to that disease for 75 years. Those who were vaccinated against measles only had immunity lasting for about 20 years. This means if vaccinated in childhood, a woman is unlikely to pass the immunity on to her baby or at least pass it on as effectively as she would have had she contracted measles naturally. 

It’s essential for our immune system to develop and grow by facing natural infectious challenges.

If the body is deprived of the opportunity to fight natural infections, the immune system won’t gain the required strength or knowledge to fight on its own. As a consequence, a range of hidden conditions that adversely affect your immunity may be expressed. These conditions are sometimes called Th2 dominant disorders. This happens when our immune system is not challenged by normal infections or bacteria in the environment.

Our body’s microbiome is primarily bacteria, viruses, and fungi. We need these naturally acquired infections to help stimulate our immune system so our body as a whole becomes stronger and keeps us healthy…

In the MMRII  vaccine, the measles and mumps virus are propagated in chicken embryo, while Rubella virus is propagated in WI-38. After these have been propagated separately, they are then combined into one vaccine. The final product will therefore not only have all three viruses, but also chicken embryo proteins from two separate cultures and human proteins. The ProQuad vaccine has the added varicella virus, which was propagated in MRC-5 cells before being combined into one vaccine.

In Japan medical authorities took the Urabe AM9 mumps vaccine and gave five million doses in a single vaccine. There were few, if any, reported cases of meningitis related to the vaccine. When they combined measles, mumps and rubella, there was a dramatic increase in the adverse reactions to the mumps virus in the vaccine, mostly in the form of meningitis.

Unsurprisingly, after that scandal the Japanese authorities took the MMR vaccine off the list of recommended vaccines.  Their experience was that when you combine three viruses into one, you’ve got major problems.

The same thing happened in Bulgaria where they used a mumps strain called Sofia 6. The strain appeared to be triggering cases of meningitis, so it was discontinued.

According to the History of Vaccines website, Stanley Plotkin, a scientist who invented the rubella vaccine, grew the rubella virus he had isolated in WI-38 cells that were kept at 86°F (30°C)…

The article then states:

“Rubella vaccine developed with WI-38 is still used throughout much of the world today as part of the combined MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine.”

So, in the US we have the RA273 strain, and in Japan the Takahashi strain. The Americans grew their cells on the aborted fetal cell line WI-38, and the Japanese grew theirs on a rabbit cell line…

Three vaccines were approved in 1969 and none of them used human cells. They all used animal cells and they all eventually disappeared from the market after Plotkin’s vaccine was finally approved in 1979. The Philips-Roxanne vaccine only lasted six to nine months on the market because once it was used in a bigger population it was found to cause bad side-effects in kids, triggering very sore knees caused by inflammation.

A study was done to see how much aborted fetal DNA was in the vaccines. The author studied a rubella vaccine called Meruvax II, manufactured by Merck, for ssDNA and dsDNA. The average ssDNA was 142.05 ng and the average dsDNA was 35.00 ng.  If you recall early in this book we mention the FDA safety guidelines specify the amount of residual DNA should be no greater than 10 ng.

Recently, information was released that the ProQuid combination vaccine by Merck resulted in twice as many seizures when the vaccines are dispensed separately.

If guidelines are ignored, seizures can and do result.

MMR is the only vaccine that contains more than one live vaccine in one shot. This one contains three, which is why some believe the vaccine is a problem. All these viruses are swimming around together in the vial and they could interact and mutate in ways we might not have foreseen…

…Japan withdrew its home-produced MMR vaccine in 1993 after around 1,000 children suffered side-effects, in particular aseptic meningitis. The problem was pinned on the mumps component produced in Japan, which continued to vaccinate against measles and rubella using single vaccines.

According to WHO data, there were 16 African countries that exceeded the United States’ vaccination rate of 91% for the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine in 2013.

Besides those African countries, many other parts of the world have outperformed the US in giving infants the MMR vaccine at their one-year immunization. These include Australia, China, New Zealand and most of the European countries.     

In 2017, the WHO recorded that 92% of the US population received their first dose of the measles vaccine at age one. There are countries, such as China, Cuba and Thailand that achieved as much as 99% coverage dispensing first measles vaccine dosages.

There is now no country in the world that offers single vaccines in preference to MMR. Therefore, the measles vaccine can be considered to be a three-in-one measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (and not just a measles vaccine).

The MMR vaccine has been notoriously and infamously correlated with autism, the early childhood mental condition that is increasing so drastically the Autism Society of America considers it (autism) an epidemic.

To be more specific, this correlation between the MMR vaccine and autism is linked with the measles component of the MMR vaccine. One study showed:

“[…] over 90% of MMR antibody-positive autistic sera were also positive for MBP autoantibodies, suggesting a strong association between MMR and CNS autoimmunity in autism.”

This is saying that over 90% of the blood samples in the study had antibodies from the MMR vaccine and also autoantibodies for myelin basic protein (MBP). This protein is found in the myelin sheath covering our nerves. When a person suffers from a disease that destroys the myelin sheath, MBP can be found in the blood.

When you take three live viruses and inject them into a child in a way human evolution has never seen before, the game changes and all bets are off. The outcome is simply unknown.

Viruses have been known to attack our nerves. An example of such a viral attack would be shingles. So, it should be of no surprise that when a variety of ingredients in a vaccine known to affect the nervous system is combined with three living viruses, they have the ability to destroy not only the nerves themselves, but also destroy their means of travel throughout the body.

More on the MMR vaccine and autism in the following chapter.

Here’s a brief audio excerpt from the foreword of our new release book VACCINE SCIENCE REVISITED: Are Childhood Immunizations As Safe As Claimed?

The foreword was written by Utah-based Medical Laboratory Scientist Elísabet Norris (B.S.) who describes the book as “Possibly the most well-referenced work yet to explore this contentious healthcare subject.”

“Vaccine Science Revisited is highly recommended – especially for physicians and other medical personnel,” according to Amazon Hall of Fame Top 100 reviewer Grady Harp.

In his review of this new release book, Harp says the authors once again take on controversial subject matter and offer bold questions about the universal use (or misuse) of immunizations through vaccinations…(and) their roles become those of investigative journalists.

Further excerpts from his review follow:

After a solid and affirming Foreword introduction by Medical Laboratory Scientist Elísabet Norris the authors open their investigation with a warmly familiar reminiscence: ‘ Remember those infamous pox parties where parents deliberately exposed children to diseases such as the flu virus, measles and chickenpox? They were especially popular in the United States and in Britain at one stage – the idea being that children build immunity after being exposed to an infectious disease like chickenpox, which is more dangerous to adults than children. That was back in the day, before vaccinations were available, although it seems such activities persist to the present day in some quarters if mainstream media reports are accurate.’

The vaccines that are studied and discussed are DPT, Polio, Hepatitis A and B, H. influenza, Meningococcal and Pneumococcal, MMR, Varicella, Rotavirus, and the roles of DNA, genetics, epigenetics, and a fine explanation of our immune systems.

Under the banner of ‘It’s definitely time for society to revisit the subject of vaccines and vaccine safety, especially where our children are concerned, and open up the scientific debate once more’ – Lance and James Morcan present one of the most sensitively and honestly researched platforms for the discussion regarding the validity or misuse of the vaccination concept and practice. Yes, there will be many who disagree with their premise initially, but read carefully and follow the logic and find a different way of viewing the entire concept if immunology.

Highly Recommended – especially for physicians and other medical personnel. -Grady Harp

It seems mainstream medicine won’t accept that high doses of Vitamin C may be an effective anticancer agent – this despite the fact that there have been some incredible success stories of late. We explore this in our book MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures.

MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 3)

The following excerpt from Medical Industrial Complex  includes a couple of examples, which, to our eyes at least, warrant the medical authorities taking a closer look at the use of Vitamin C to combat cancer:

On October 12, 2014, Television New Zealand’s ‘Sunday’ current affairs program advised viewers that ground breaking research at Otago University had revealed Vitamin C may be a useful tool in cancer treatment.

The report states, “Professor Margreet Vissers has told the Sunday Programme Vitamin C is unlikely to provide a miracle cure. However it could be used alongside other therapies. ‘We think Vitamin C is potentially another tool in the toolbox of anti-cancer treatments.’

“Lab tests at Otago showed tumours with higher levels of Vitamin C were less aggressive and slower to grow than ones with lower levels of the vitamin. A number of doctors around the country have been running centres which offer the treatment to patients as an alternative or a complement to chemotherapy and radio therapy. They are using high level doses of Vitamin C by intravenous infusion to attack the tumours”.

Vissers also says, “What we want to find out…is if we increase the amount of Vitamin C is that going to slow the tumour growth as well? We suspect it will”.

On May 6, 2014, under the heading ‘Taking on Big C with Vitamin C,’ the New Zealand newspaper The Northern Advocate reported on the incredible case of policeman Anton Kuraia, a family man and cancer patient “who was given only weeks to live” after unsuccessful chemotherapy.

The article reads, “The medical experts described it as ‘wall to wall’ cancer and after two months of intensive chemotherapy there was little improvement. Anton Kuraia was sent home from hospital with weeks to live and told he would slip into a coma and die.

“The 43-year-old Whangarei policeman and father of three was left shattered and broken. ‘I remember asking my oncology doctor if there was anything I could do, anything at all. But it was made clear that there were no other options and that certain death would be upon me’.”

The article continues, “Anton got on the internet and googled vitamin C”.

Anton is quoted as saying, “I naturally looked into high dose vitamin C, therapies and supplements on the other side of the pharmaceutical fence. Why is it that we call everything that isn’t conventional medicine ‘alternative’? When you reflect on the simple methodology of alternatives you soon discover that the term ‘naturals’ is a clearer description. Naturals support, detoxify and gently encourage the body to create an environment in which cancer struggles to survive.”

Apparently, Anton’s diet was given a major overhaul, with sugar being a definite no-go food.

“Fresh vegetable and fruit smoothies became the order of the day as he followed a blood type diet. The high dose liquid form of vitamin C is 90g of clear liquid taken intravenously to bypass the gut…The sessions cost $200 each.

“After 10 weeks of healthy eating and infusions – two weeks longer than experts had predicted he would live – Anton was feeling better and agreed to have a bone marrow biopsy. The results revealed the cancer had dwindled to less than one per cent. The cancer was in complete remission”.

It’s abundantly clear not everyone agrees that Vitamin C may be an effective anticancer agent. On its website, the American Cancer Society states, “Clinical trials of high doses vitamin C as a treatment for cancer have not shown any benefit.” And it warns, “High doses of vitamin C can cause side effects in some people”.

To be fair, high doses of anything can cause side effects – even death – if consumers overdo it. (Try eating a truckload of apples and see how you feel).

However, the American Cancer Society’s point is taken: high doses of Vitamin C can cause side effects and, it seems, the jury’s still out on the effectiveness, or otherwise, of this vitamin as an anticancer agent.

The society does acknowledge that “Some claim that the vitamin can prevent a variety of cancers from developing, including lung, prostate, bladder, breast, cervical, intestinal, esophageal, stomach, pancreatic, and salivary gland cancers, as well as leukemia and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Vitamin C is also said to prevent tumors from spreading, help the body heal after cancer surgery, enhance the effects of certain anti-cancer drugs, and reduce the toxic effects of other drugs used in chemotherapy”.

And while the society acknowledges that “people with higher blood levels of vitamin C tend to have a lesser risk of developing cancer than do people with lower levels,” it categorically states, “Studies that observed large groups or people and clinical trials of vitamin C supplements have not shown the same strong protective effects against cancer”.

The American Cancer Society also quotes a 2000 National Academy of Sciences report as saying, “There is not enough evidence to support claims that taking high doses of antioxidants (such as vitamins C and E, selenium, and beta carotene) can prevent chronic diseases”.

Certainly, some doctors recommend high doses of vitamin C supplements to protect patients against, and to treat, the common cold. However, it does seem that few doctors are prepared to accept that high doses of Vitamin C may be an effective anticancer agent.

MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures  was published today on Amazon. It’s a no-holds barred critique of mainstream medicine and the various players who make up one of the largest and most profitable industries on the planet.
Book 3 in ‘The Underground Knowledge Series’.
Written by novelists, filmmakers and independent researchers James Morcan & Lance Morcan, with a foreword by retired pharmacist Denis Toovey (author of Better Health for You: An Insider’s Big Picture Guide), this explosive book explores the contention that Big Pharma and other participants in the healthcare sector put profits ahead of patients’ wellbeing and dollars ahead of lives.Medical Industrial Complex  leaves no doubt that something has run amuck in the medical field, and what should be the noblest profession has been severely compromised by the various conflicting interests. The authors examine this in language anyone can understand. In the process, they draw attention to the rampant commercialism, political selfishness and dogmatic academia that plagues the industry.

The reader is reminded there are many honorable people within the medical establishment who are doing incredible things for their fellow Man. However, the reader is also reminded that doctors, hospitals, medical academia, pharmaceutical companies, medical equipment suppliers, health insurers et al make their money from sick people, not healthy people, and if everyone was healthy many of the aforementioned would be out of business…so it’s hardly in their financial interests to cure illnesses and ailments.

Medical Industrial Complex  asks some hard questions. Questions like: Is your doctor one of those (doctors) who receives kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies? How dangerous are our hospitals for patients? Do the drug companies make drugs or money? Is vaccinating children the smart thing for parents to do? Did you know these medical tests may kill you? Are cures really being suppressed? What’s the solution regarding private health insurance? Who is quashing alternative medicines? When did your doctor last talk to you about your diet?Above all the reader is urged to stop giving away complete responsibility to doctors and other healthcare providers. “It’s time to start looking at these people as they actually are: advisors for you to make decisions about what’s best for your body.”
