A new systematic review published in PLoS titled, “Herpes Zoster Risk Reduction through Exposure to Chickenpox Patients: A Systematic Multidiscplinary Review,” confirms that the widespread adoption of chickenpox vaccine over the past 30 years, which has resulted in a decline in chickenpox cases associated with infection from the wild-circulating virus, has led to a concerning increase in the incidence of herpes zoster (shingles), a far more serious expression of chickenpox virus (varicella zoster) infection.
This new review brings to the forefront a few critically important questions: are natural infectious challenges essential for establishing a healthy immune system, and is the chicken pox vaccine doing more harm than good?
The Vaccines Don’t Work As Advertised
Despite the largely politically- and economically-motivatedimmunization agenda of the CDC, there is a growing body of clinical research establishing that vaccination does not effectively ‘improve upon’ or ‘replace’ natural immunity in the way that the masses have been made to assume; to the contrary, there are now hundreds of diseases that have been linked to commonly administered childhood and adult vaccines; and when we say “linked” we don’t mean anecdotally, but in the biomedical literature itself [see the data set establishing thedangers of vaccines].
The Vaccines Cause The Disease They Are Supposed To Prevent
Indeed, since the introduction of universal chickenpox vaccination in the US in 1995, the vaccine has been found to have only limited effectiveness,with 1 in 5 children receiving the original vaccine experiencing “breakthrough” infections.”This is why, at present, children on the CDC’s immunization schedule receive two doses. But increasing the number of doses isn’t working either. For example, in 2006, a chickenpox outbreak occurred in a population of Arkansas schoolchildren with 97% immunization compliance. When the researchers looked at the difference in outbreak cases between one-dose and two-dose children, none could be found.
Another glaring problem is the fact that the chickenpox vaccine itself is clearly a source of infection. The CDC states “Chickenpox vaccines contain weakened live VZV, which may cause latent (dormant) infection.”When the goal is to prevent infection, injecting children with the very infectious and communicable pathogen the vaccine is supposed to prevent seems like the very definition of quackery, does it not? We forget that there was a time when injecting infectious disease material into otherwise healthy children was considered abad idea. And then there were the hundreds of millions of years of bodily evolution where no such option existed, but which nonetheless enabled us through our own well-adapted innate and acquired immune apparatus to survive as a species up unto this point in time, where now we flagrantly cast our biological inheritance to the wind in favor of mass experimentation with 60+ vaccines given to our childen by age 6.
Endogenous retroviruses, for instance, are RNA-based ‘fossil viruses’ that incorporated their genetic material into the infected species’ germline DNA many million years ago, and now harmless to that species, make up a significant portion of the total DNA sequences within most animal genomes. For example, the human genome is believed to be 8% endogenous retroviral in origin.These retroviruses are normally not capable of infecting other species, but during the vaccine manufacturing process where viable biological materials from different species are often cultured together, or undergo accidental admixture, they can become reactivated and infectious to another species.
One of the most carefully guarded secrets within the history of vaccinology is that the original vaccine master seed stocks, whose components are either still being used to create live vaccines, or which havecontaminated oral vaccinesstill be used today, contain retroviruses and other hidden pathogens. One reason for this terrible fact is that reverse transcriptase was not even discovered until 1970, so there was no way of knowing there was a problem when the original vaccines were being developed. There is also the case of the simian virus known asSV-40 which contaminated the original oral polio vaccines, and which is responsible for the infection of millions around the world with a cancer-causing virus, and which is still being passed down from parent-to-child today. [See theSimian Virus 40 researchhere]
Chicken pox vaccine is also grown with living cells from aborted fetal tissue. Known as“diploid” vaccines, they carry their own set of biological and obviously moral risks. As far as the precautionary principle stands, injecting virus-infected human cells, alongside powerfulimmunotoxic adjuvants, into the bodies of healthy children in order to ‘protect’ them from a benign, immune-strengthening bout of chickenpox, sounds like the very definition of insanity. But as it stands today, millions of parents and their pediatricians consider this not only sound practice, but necessary to prevent infecting others.
Instead of looking to the origin of the herpes zoster problem: both the (paradoxical) infectivity and the lack of efficacy of the chickenpox vaccine itself, the vaccine industry and its cheerleading arm, the CDC, are now promoting a new “shingles” vaccine which contains more of the same: another live varicella virus. And already there is indication that the shingles vaccine causes … you guessed it … reactivation of the herpes zoster virus.Read a 2012 case study on this connection here.
