Why All the Measles Outbreaks by Jessica Gianelloni

This is a wonderful piece that contains common sense and practical approaches by a person that has systematically broken down the problems surrounding MMR vaccinations. It is our recommendation at Seland Chiropractic that you read this in full, start gathering your own research and come to an educated decision about vaccinating your children.

Why All The Measles Outbreaks…

CNN Article: U.S. measles cases in 2013 may be most in 17 years

So apparently “this year is on track to be the worst for measles in more than a decade…..and
….wait for it…..wait for it….yep, of course….. AND
“people who refuse to vaccinate their children are behind the increasing number of outbreaks, health officials say”

Of course! It is ALWAYS the unvaccinated. And the answer is always MORE vaccines.

This is Part II response to the CNN article: Why All The Measles Outbreaks?

*I know this post is long, but please take the time to read all the way through. I have an important message at the end.


Scientists believe that measles can be eradicated by vaccinating 80% -100% of the population. Theoretically, such “herd” immunity will interrupt measles transmission and end epidemics.

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that “immunization coverage of 2 year olds of 80% may be sufficient to prevent sustained measles outbreaks in urban communities”. This is what is referred to as “herd immunity”.

Ok, so are you following? We need about 80% of people (children) to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity and prevent outbreaks.

Just yesterday (published September 12, 2013) The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said childhood immunization levels are near or above national targets.

Let me repeat: CHILDHOOD immunization levels are near or ABOVE National targets.

I went to the CDC website where you can look up vaccine coverage in your area. The latest statistics were just published (as of September 2013). My state has a 90% overall vaccine coverage for children. That means 90% of the population where I live is vaccinated. Wa-la! (or voila for the people who like to correct me) :) . Herd immunity has been achieved. Right? Or wrong?

We know herd immunity is a myth, but let’s just keep pretending herd immunity is real….

Some estimate that only 2% of the population does not vaccinate their children. Are we really trying to blame outbreaks on the “people who refuse to vaccinate their children”? Who seriously believes this?

“It is preposterous to think that a child who is vaccinated no longer carries the bacteria or the viruses that they have been vaccinated against. If, in fact, children are vaccinated, then why are parents and public health authorities afraid that non-vaccinated children are somehow carrying something that their children are not, when they should feel comfortable that their children are vaccinated? You can’t have it both ways…

You can’t vaccinate believing that your children are protected and then feel that your children are not protected because somehow, some non-vaccinated child is carrying some secret organism that one else is carrying. You can’t have it both ways. It just doesn’t make any sense”. -–Dr. Palevsky, board certified pediatrician

vaccineworked The CNN article has too many holes in it: “Among those who have been stricken with measles this year, 92% were not vaccinated or had unknown vaccination status”

Hmmmmm…..OR we could also say “Among those who had been stricken with measles this year, 92% may have been vaccinated or maybe not, we don’t know”.

What kind of research is that?

Back to the Herd

What’s funny is that the “herd” really has not been immune for 40 years.

Dr. Blaylock (world renown neurosurgeon) explains this perfectly…

“When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given.

What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. At least 50 percent of the population has been unprotected for decades.

If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95 percent. Yet we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50 percent or less of the population having vaccine protection.

Herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades, and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations”.

But who cares right? Let’s just continue to blame outbreaks on the “people who refuse to vaccinate their children”. My question is who is behind this nonsense? And what is their motivation in blaming everything on “parents who don’t vaccinate”? It would make more sense to blame outbreaks on the adult population (who never contracted measles naturally) but received a measles vaccine as a child. Ask them when the last time they received a measles vaccine? Seriously….the herd of adults in NOT immune!

So we preach herd immunity. Our target levels for children are on track. Adults are not. We tried an adult schedule and no-one really complies. So we blame the teeny tiny percent of unvaccinated children.

Questions and Answers signpost

The CNN article says that according to the CDC, “one to three out of every 1,000 children in the United States who get measles will die from the disease, even with the best of care”. Hmmmm….The studies I read show these statistics to be true of children who live in conditions of malnutrition and poverty. Not in America.  I’ve share before how:

“Data shows that one-third to one-half of the millions of deaths in children across the world, caused by measles, diarrheal diseases, pneumonia, AIDS, & malaria, are due to undernutrition, not undervaccination”

I went through the last few years of measles “outbreaks”, and there hasn’t been a measles death since 2003, despite years and years of “outbreaks” being caused by the unvaccinated. Which by the way, do you notice that we are always having the “worst outbreak in years”, every year? In 2008, we had an outbreak in San Diego…this is how they worded it….”In the end, 839 people were exposed to measles. Eleven were infected.” 11. But in 2008, if you remember the headlines, it was the worst measles outbreak. Ever.

The article published last year (2012) from USA Today read “CDC: 2011 was worst measles year in U.S. in 15 years” But now today, CNN runs an article titled “U.S. measles cases in 2013 may be most in 17 years”. Well if 2011 was the worst in 15 years, how is 2013 going to be the worst in 17 years? We haven’t surpassed the amount of cases in 2011 yet. And we are nowhere close to surpassing the amount of cases from 1996. And guess what? Yep, the 2011 worst year was caused by the unvaccinated kids too. Haha! And the 2008 outbreak. And every outbreak, right? Nope. Outbreaks have occurred in populations where 99% was vaccinated.

Read this article, titled “Measles Outbreaks Centered in the Vaccinated: Studies Show Vaccine Is Ineffective“ 

The CNN article gives no sources or references. People demand that my blog give sources and references, but we don’t demand the same from media reporting. People just read an article like the CNN one, and they are sold on the underlying message: BLAME THE UNVACCINATED.

So is the herd immune or not? How do we keep blaming the small percentage of unvaccinated children on “outbreaks” when the majority of children are vaccinated. It’s a joke. I think we should blame the outbreaks on people who haven’t had a measles vaccine since they were children. Those no-good-non-immune-measles-spreading-x-generation-and-baby-boomers.

Speaking of jokes. I found this awesome picture on the CDC website today. It was published on August 24, 2013 so I’m not showing an outdated picture from the CDC website.

measles cdc websiteFIGURE 2. Number of measles cases (N = 159), by state — United States, 2013*  * As of August 24, 2013.

THIS. These numbers are what we are making a big deal about? This picture is what CNN is basing it’s breaking news story on. Are we serious?


1 in 50 kids are suffering from the largest epidemic in the history of the world. It’s called AUTISM.

My friend LJ Goes, co-founder of The Thinking Moms Revolution, contributing editor for Age of Autism, and Managing Partner of The Misuta Project, LLC. She describes her sons AUTISM like this.

Mine has AUTISMM:
Auto-immune dysfunction
Undiagnosed PANDAS (finally caught by his 6th physician)
Titres that indicate no antibody production for Polio (for which he is fully vaxxed) and “off the charts” production of varicella and measles.
Inflammation of the brain and bowels.
Sensory processing disorder brought on by
Metabolic and
Methylation failure

Many of these children with autism have the live measles from the vaccine, destroying their gut and bowels. Aka, AUTISM.

Not only that, but the measles vaccine caused their child’s encephalitis. You know the encephalitis that we tell parents their child is going to die from if they contract measles? Yeah, that same encephalitis is listed on the MMR vaccine package insert as a adverse reaction to the vaccine.

LJ’s husband Dave wrote their son Noah a letter this morning. It read like this:

To my dearest son, Noah:

Six years ago today, you received your MMR vaccine. That weekend, you developed a 104 degree fever, were treated with acetaminophen (which the medical establishment now admits can hurt more than help), developed chronic encephalopathy, and regressed into autism. 

This is what daddy should have read before this medical procedure. This is directly from Merck’s MMR II document: 

Contraindication (i.e. do not give this to): “Individuals with a family history of congenital or hereditary immunodeficiency, until the immune competence of the potential vaccine recipient is demonstrated.” = YOU. 

Adverse Reactions: “Encephalitis; encephalopathy; measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE) (see CONTRAINDICATIONS); subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE); Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS); febrile convulsions; afebrile convulsions or seizures; ataxia; polyneuritis; polyneuropathy; ocular palsies; paresthesia.” 

You’re too young to have to hear this but this is when mom and I realized that large special interests (i’ll explain later), in collusion with governments, can and do lie, especially when too much is on the line. 

Your mommy and I have said it before and will say it again: Us parents have absolutely nothing to gain in this “debate”. We are shunned by the community. We lose friendships. We lose family. We spend our life savings trying to heal our children. We are made to look like idiots by the media. What do we have to gain?! NOTHING. 

What does the medical establishment potentially have to deal with if they have to come clean? What would be the result if they had to tell the American people not only that this was happening all along, but that they covered it up. In other words, what would they have to lose? EVERYTHING. 

My heart breaks for you every day. Not only did you not have a choice in the matter. I helped do this to you. Your mommy and I are fighting like hell (awww, daddy swore!) to recover your body from the scourge of autism (yes, a scourge – not neurodiversity) that racks your body and mind every day. I’m sorry Noah. I vow that I will research everything and trust nothing, ever again, until I can look at myself and say, “yes, I have done my research and this is what we are going to do.” 

We have come a long way, buddy, and you are doing so great! But we have a long way to go. Stay strong my little warrior. Daddy loves you. 

Your Father.

I was given permission to share this story. Because this story above. This is what all of this is about. This is why I care and why I write this blog. Because this is a real family. And that lame graphic of our country above. Good ole America. Showing a few states here and there with a handful of measles cases. A relatively mild illness that mimics a common cold. That picture given to us courtesy of the CDC. It is a JOKE. The CNN article is a joke.

Autism is not. Can you imagine an image of our country representing the number of children suffering from AUTISM right now? The largest epidemic in the history of the world (1 in 50 kids) and we are consumed with 159 cases of measles in the “largest outbreak ever”.

See whats happening is that more and more kids are becoming vaccine injured. So more and more people are waking up to the dangers of injecting children with 49 vaccines before age 5. And the only way to distract us from this is to blame measles “outbreaks” on the 2% of the childhood population that is opting out of shots.

Wake up. Noah and his parents need you to wake up so we can spare an entire generation of children from vaccine injury.

Because that’s really what’s behind these outbreaks and those unruly “people who refuse to vaccinate their children”.

*Since this blog was published 3 days ago, it has received over 100,000 views. Please do not write to me that vaccines do not cause autism. I’m not asking you if they do or not. I already know. If you are unsure, here are a few great places to start:

70 published studies showing the link between vaccines & autism. There have only been 14 studies that disprove the link. Those 14 studies have been proven flawed. You can read about those flawed studies (HERE)

*Canary party video that has already gone viral and will soon be presented before Congress. Thank-you Rob Schneider for your voice in this. Watch (HERE)

*Follow THE THINKING MOMS REVOLUTION. These parents don’t wonder what caused their children’s autism. They know. Confirmed by doctors and researcher all over the world. They are healing and recovering their children.

*Ask the parents. VIDEO: Autism Prevention | What the Parents Say

*Read the stories. I do a series on vaccine injured children (AUTISM). You can read there stories (HERE)

*Read the Simpsonwood transcripts

*Read the vaccine package inserts. Many of them list autism as an adverse reaction.

*Most importantly, THINK for yourselves!

Lastly, If a comment is rude or degrading, it is thrown in the trash. I do not see many of the comments, as they are sent to me once they pass approval (thank goodness for a comment moderator). I try to respond to as many comments as I can, but I do not get to all of them. If you want your comment approved, be kind. If you do not agree with this blog, may I kindly suggest that you spend your time and energy elsewhere. I will never waste my time or energy engaging with insults, and honestly I don’t even see them.

    I am a nurse who works with neurologically damaged so many of them have parents with stories just like Noah's story. No one will convince the thousands of parents who have identical stories that they are wrong; that it was all a coincidence that these symptoms occurred after vaccines. Keep fighting....even the pharmaceutical giants will not silence the parents whose kids have been damaged beyond anything their parents could have imagined.
