The Editorial Board at USA Today
recently ran an opinion piece in which they praised the vaccine industry and espoused Big Pharma propaganda and myths to convince Americans to be vaccinated.
The USA Today
article claimed that measles is making a comeback thanks to "a growing anti-vaccine movement and misinformation that is spreading like a contagious disease." This fraudulent claim is made despite the fact that most children who catch the disease have already been vaccinated for it
. Furthermore, the MMR vaccine for measles was actually designed to fail, which is evidenced by the fact that Merck Co. faked its vaccine test results to fabricate a "95% efficacy rate."USA Today
also promotes the unscientific "herd immunity" theory. According to this theory, if enough of the population is vaccinated, then immunity is somehow achieved for everyone. The problem with this theory is that vaccines only affect those who receive them. They cause a reaction in the body which may produce antibodies that can help prevent or mitigate the disease, thus building temporary "immunity." However, those who don't receive vaccines usually develop these antibodies, and immunity, naturally and permanently. In many cases, vaccines destroy the immune system, making it easier for the body to succumb to disease and disorder. Vaccinated individuals also serve as carriers of disease, spreading it to the rest of the population
and putting those who haven't developed immunity yet at risk.
"Herd immunity" has never been scientifically validated, nor has the efficacy of vaccines to prevent disease. Yet, some actually believe that unvaccinated children put vaccinated ones at risk of catching disease, and that vaccines only work when a certain amount of the population has received them.
Furthermore, vaccines have been linked to a number of health issues, including developmental problems, autism, gastrointestinal issues and brain inflammation.USA Today
claims that parents "ought to be able to opt out for strictly defined medical or religious reasons" but not for "personal opinions." They then conclude, "Everyone enjoys the life-saving benefits vaccines provide, but they'll exist only as long as everyone shares in the risks." On the contrary, vaccines only "benefit" those who receive them, and parents should have the right to decide whether to subject their children to a cocktail of chemicals, heavy metals and biological tissue, which could cause permanent, life-damaging harm. To suggest otherwise, while ignoring the hazards of vaccines and promoting their manufacturers' non-scientific theories on immunity, is misleading and immoral.
