MB Comment: The CDC just released a report saying asthma rates are surging and that 10% of children now have asthma (NY Times May 3, 2011 headline: Asthma Rate Rises Sharply in U.S., Government Says) The CDC feigns ignorance of the cause: ‘“We don’t know exactly why the number is going up, but, importantly, we know there are measures individuals with asthma can take to control symptoms,” said Ileana Arias, principal deputy director of the centers.’
Legitimate scientific studies show a huge difference in asthma rates between vaccinated and unvaccinated children. The astounding increase in asthma (just like autism) correlates with the corresponding increase in vaccines. An overview of asthma/vaccine studies reveals an abundance of independent observational studies showing an overwhelmingly higher rate of asthma in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children, contradicted by the typical weasel-speak official meta-studies deriving the opposite conclusion. The CDC is incapable of admitting its responsibility for causing the increase in asthma because they are not true scientists who make recommendations on the basis of impartial observation of data. They are religious zealots devoted to their sacred cow of vaccines.
Notice their emphasis on taking meds to control asthma symptoms. First modern medicine makes you sick with asthma through over-vaccination, then you are their captive lifelong customer for meds that only provide marginal symptomatic relief. If that sounds outlandish to you, read the following excerpt from the Vaccine Guide by Randall Neustaedter OMD.
The Vaccine Guide By Randall Neustaedter (page 50)
“Several clinical studies have confirmed an association between vaccination and asthma. A team of New Zealand researchers followed 1,265 children born in 1977. Of the children who were vaccinated 23 percent had asthma episodes. A total of 23 children did not receive the DTP vaccines, and none of them developed asthma (Kemp et al., 1997). A study in Great Britain produced similar findings that associated asthma with the pertussis vaccine. In that study 243 children received the vaccine and 26 of them later developed asthma (10.7%) compared to only 4 of the 203 children that had never received the pertusis vaccine (2 percent). The relative risk of developing asthma from the pertusis vaccine was 5.4. Additionally, of the 91 children who received no vaccines at all, only one had asthma. Therefore the risk of developing asthma was about one percent in children who received no vaccines and 11 percent for those children who received vaccines including pertusis (Odent et al., 1994). A third study was conducted in the US from data in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey of infants through adolescents aged 16. Data showed that children vaccinated with DTP or tetanus were twice as likely to develop asthma compared to unvaccinated children (Hurwitz and Morgenstern, 2000). One study revealed that the MMR vaccine can cause human white blood cells to develop IgE antibodies, which is the primary characteristic of asthma (Imani & Kehoe, 2001). The induction of an allergic reactivity may explain the increased incidence of asthma in vaccinated children.”
