Traditional Media Now Questioning Whooping Cough Vaccine

An investigation by California news agencies and watchdog organizations is raising serious concerns about whether the whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine is actually working. In 2010, nearly 1,000 adults and children have tested positive for whooping cough -- and more than half of them had been vaccinated.

According to 10News:

“... [S]cientists ... discovered the pertussis bacteria had mutated almost two decades ago ... [T]he new generation of vaccines, which came out around the same time, was not tested on the mutation ... [T]he new strain can overpower the vaccine.”

Over and over, you see mainstream media blaming the rise in unvaccinated people for the rise in whooping cough cases -- but it has nothing to do with it.  Folks, this sounds eerily similar to reports from a similar outbreak in 1985 (pdf). Most of the media also blamed that outbreak on parents of unvaccinated kids. The truth is that these whooping cough outbreaks and deaths CANNOT be blamed on parents taking non-medical vaccine exemptions for their unvaccinated children. The DPT and DTaP vaccines have simply never been very effective.

For an eye-opening look at the current situation, watch the KPBS videos linked below, especially the one from December 16.  You will learn just how often the vaccine fails, and start to understand how immunized people are actually spreading the disease.  They also examine why most people have never heard of these facts -- because the experts who influence vaccine policy have strong ties to vaccine companies.
