The Overhyped Measles Epidemic of 2019

By Dr. John Reizer

Recently, there’s been a tremendous amount of disinformation being discussed through the mainstream media about outbreaks and epidemics concerning measles. And of course the media coverage is blaming the present epidemic on anti-vaxxers; those dreaded conspiracy nuts that refuse to receive vaccines and genuflect to the church of medicine.

Public health officials regularly release reports to the mainstream media about epidemics, pandemics and outbreaks of diseases. Then they encourage everybody to rush out to medical facilities in order to receive vaccines to protect themselves and loved ones against the named diseases.

Understand the Deceptive Terminology Being Used

The words Endemic, Epidemic, Pandemic, and Outbreak, are often used interchangeably by government regulating agencies as well as by the mainstream media companies to purposely mislead citizens about the dangers associated with certain diseases that may or may not be affecting or impacting various communities at any given time.

Endemic is the term used to describe a disease that regularly exists in a certain community. For example, measles is supposedly no longer endemic in the United States because there has been an absence of reported, continuous measles transmission cases for 12 months or longer. According to government regulating agencies, the disease is only transmitted in the United States by unvaccinated citizens that visit foreign territories and then bring it back home. These individuals supposedly infect other US citizens that have not been vaccinated.

Epidemic is the term used to describe a disease that has increased its number of reported cases in a community at a rate of one case more than was anticipated by health officials. For example, if a specific community normally expected 5 cases of measles each year based on previously reported health statistics, and suddenly 6 cases were reported, this would be an epidemic.

Pandemic is the term used to describe a situation where several epidemics are being reported throughout a country, in different countries or around the world at the same time.

Outbreak is the term used to describe a disease that has been reported in a community for the very first time or not for several years. Or the cases currently being reported are one case higher than previously reported. For example, if a given community has one case of measles reported in a given year and there are normally no cases reported this would be an outbreak as well as an epidemic.

The reporting of epidemics and pandemics through media sources could be very confusing to the general public. When people hear or read about these terms they often believe that millions of people are being infected with a disease process. Truth be told, the terms epidemic, pandemic and outbreak are usually referencing only a few cases of a disease process that have recently occurred.

It is vitally important that readers understand the lexicon being used within the public health profession before blindly jumping to conclusions and making poor decisions that might end up harming them in the long run.

The mainstream news has been reporting that measles are occurring in the United States at near epidemic proportions. This might seem really frightening to the average citizen. But what these reports are failing to disclose is that in the entire United States, only 314 cases of measles have been reported since January 1, 2019 – March 26, 2019 (at the time of this writing). Only 15 states out of 50 have even reported a measles infection in 2019. There are approximately a little over 328 million people living in the US as of 2019. Is this really a health crisis? When the words epidemic and pandemic are inserted, the reports seem a lot scarier than the raw numbers would indicate.

In addition, the measles virus is not any more dangerous for most human beings than the common cold. You’re talking about a virus that lasts 7-10 days, produces an immune system response of fever, coughing, runny nose and a rash which is how the virus is expelled from the body.

Unless your immune system is severely compromised, the measles, like all childhood illnesses, has a short duration in the human body and it leaves a person with lifelong immunity and a more finely tuned immune system that will have an easier time defending itself against other microbial invaders over the course of a lifetime.

The common cold lasts 1-3 weeks, produces an immune system response of fever, coughing and a runny nose. And again, unless your immune system is severely compromised it’s not a big deal for the average person.

Be Careful When Reviewing Published Health Statistics

Statistics being reported to the general public by government regulating agencies have to be reviewed with a great deal of skepticism. These agencies routinely under-reported polio cases by classifying them as meningitis and they did similar sleight of hand calculations with other diseases after vaccine campaigns were initiated many years ago. According to a whistle blower in the movie VAXXED, they still delete certain statistical data to suit whatever agenda they want to promote.

Many incidents of upper respiratory disorders, pneumonia and rhino viruses (common colds) are most likely being reported by government regulating agencies as influenza cases during the months of October – May (Flu season). This is how the number of Influenza deaths gets pumped up to the 100,000 mark. What most people fail to realize is that a lot of these people are probably dying from other illnesses besides the flu such as the common cold, pneumonia and strep infections. Many of these patients are severely compromised because they take too many drugs, are malnourished or extremely advanced in age.

There’s no vaccine or published cure for the common cold so you rarely see anything being promoted by the medical industrial complex about a simple rhino virus. If a person’s immune system is very weak however, the common cold can be potentially as dangerous to a person as the measles or influenza.

Our perceptions about many things are usually a lot different than the realities associated with such happenings. This phenomenon does not occur by accident. It happens because media companies are constantly reporting information they garner from government sources that has been specifically designed to deceive the public.

If we watch television, read a newspaper, or listen to the radio, we are absorbing disinformation from media companies that affects our lives. This is especially true in the case of healthcare news.

Presently there is an extremely strong campaign taking place by the medical industrial complex to push vaccines on the general population. Likewise, there’s an equally aggressive campaign taking place at the same time that is trying to attack anti-vaxxers and people that display good common sense when it comes to health and how to take care of their bodies. You might say the overall strategy employed by the powers that be is quite pandemic in nature and perhaps the greatest threat to human physiology we’ve observed in a long time.

The Recent Measles Scare: More Vaccination Propaganda in Play

By Dr. John L. Reizer

Long before the development and introduction of a measles vaccine, children worldwide would contract this childhood disease and recover in a relatively short period of time without complications and with true lifelong immunity. The same could be also said in regards to cases of Mumps and Rubella. (1)

The childhood diseases are believed by some health care specialists to be a natural primer to the human immune system. In other words, children that contract these diseases prior to puberty can benefit from a stronger and more efficient immune system response against other and more potentially devastating health challenges later in life.

At the center of the vaccination controversy is the well documented anger of many families that have had to endure pain and suffering because their children were permanently harmed or killed from adverse vaccine reactions. A family asking for compensation for damages stemming from vaccine injuries to their child is not a new concept. Pharmaceutical companies, in the past, have had to pay out large monetary awards in an effort to settle lawsuits generated from vaccination injuries to small children.

Recently, new legislation has been passed that limits the monetary awards parents can recover when seeking damages caused from vaccine injuries. Such cases are now heard in a special vaccine injury court. This venue limits all monetary awards at $250,000. In addition to that, it is quite cumbersome to enter specialized vaccine courts and many cases are thrown out before they get started. Unlike other courtroom scenarios, the vaccine cases are heard by a special vaccine judge and you can pretty much imagine how biased and unfair, in the direction of the pharmaceutical manufacturers, this process has become.

Despite the tremendous risks associated with vaccinating children and the relatively benign nature of most childhood diseases as well as other maladies being protected against, the pharmaceutical industry has managed to brainwash most parents and health care consumers into believing that the human body is completely defenseless against a never ending assortment of deadly microbes.

Most recently, a measles outbreak originating in California in the Disneyland Park has been promoted ad nauseum by the corporately owned mainstream media. It has reached the point of becoming a witch hunt on many news programs as people have been featured on television calling out parents that have chosen not to vaccinate their children for fear of what these very harmful drugs can potentially do to their children. All of this rubbish came about because 84 people in the entire United States have been infected by measles in 2015 as of this writing. This is craziness and a lot of propaganda being promoted by Big Pharma.

My point of contention remains quite simple and logical to understand. If the people getting vaccinated feel unsafe due to the fact that others around them are unvaccinated, how effective can the vaccines really be? The truth be told, the vaccines are not very effective at all. And the medical profession over the years has alluded to this fact in their professional journals.

An article written in JAMA, May, 1990 stated, “In an era when physicians are relatively unfamiliar with the disease, failure to detect measles in some vaccinated people will lead to calculation of artificially low attack rates for the vaccinated population.” (2)

It appears when one reviews the large number of claims being made today that a lot of children might be getting needlessly harmed from vaccines. This is not something that can be hidden, any longer, as the complaints continue to pile up in the vaccine courts and the accusatory finger has been pointed in the face of the Medical Establishment for their involvement in possibly causing more harm than good when it comes to the vaccine issue.

Some health care experts believe that vaccines are very dangerous drugs and make people weaker, sicker, and more vulnerable to diseases they would otherwise not have to contend with. Some doctors also believe that these medicines do not create immunity and that the vaccine ingredients are toxic beyond belief and bad for all human beings.

In 1998, the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, published a controversial paper that linked MMR vaccinations to Autism. The MMR vaccine is a preventive, medicinal concoction against Measles, Mumps, and Rubella.

According to mainstream health sources, The Lancet article caused a major panic in the minds of parents in both Britain and the United States. Because of the study, many parents chose not to vaccinate their children and opted for safer measures to maintain the health and well being of younger family members. (3)

An independent investigative journalist, Brian Deer, determined that the author of the famous article, Andrew Wakefield, M.D., had manipulated evidence in his study and had also broken several ethical standards within the field of research. As a result of Deer’s investigation, Wakefield’s study was retracted by The Lancet in 2010. Dr. Wakefield was later reprimanded by the medical profession and stripped of his license to practice medicine. (4)

The news about the Wakefield Study being retracted was given worldwide exposure by the corporately, owned mainstream media. In fact, anytime a person attempts to type anything relating to vaccines and Autism into an Internet search engine, the results are littered with references about the now famous retraction of the Wakefield study. How convenient and considerate it was for the news services to have provided this information for all health care consumers in the world.

Since the retraction of the study, many health care professionals have indicated that the Wakefield article was singled out and crushed by representatives of Big Pharma in order to protect the vaccine industry. Obviously, a lot of money was at stake in the way of potential lawsuits against vaccine makers, as well as the British and United States governments. Enough said!

One impressive article that was featured in the online publication, Natural News.com, implied that several of the key players responsible for having the Wakefield study retracted were tied to major pharmaceutical companies that had deep financial interests in the vaccine industry. (5)

As has been reported for a very longtime by many independent researchers, Big Pharma seems to have very rigid ties to medical research as well as the journals that publish medical studies. (6) These corporations have the ultimate power to greatly influence research so that the studies being released each year routinely support the petrochemical industry’s products. They also appear to have the power to erase important studies that slip through the cracks and speak out against the dangers of various medicines.

To this day, Dr. Wakefield maintains his innocence and credibility regarding the famous 1998 paper. (7) As is the case with many things in this world, if you want to know the truth about a particular situation, you simply follow the money trail.

Very simply written, the immunization industry remains the holy grail of modern medicine and is carefully protected by followers and financiers within the church of medicine. Any health care practitioner that attempts to shed light on the dangers associated with vaccinating our children can expect to be ridiculed, attacked, or ostracized from their profession. And for those individuals that doubt the authenticity of such claims, they only have to look at the unfair treatment of Dr. Andrew Wakefield.
