A Pox on the CDC’s Vaccination Agenda: The Rise of Herpes Zoster (Shingles)

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 lead to a concerning increase in the incidents 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-motivated  immunization 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 the  dangers of vaccines].

Additionally, the highly respected Cochrane Database Review repeatedly contradicts the CDC’s claims by demonstrating that there is a conspicuous lack of unequivocal scientific evidence supporting their  claim that influenza vaccines are safe and effective. Even worse, despite the hundreds of thousands who receive them every year, virtually no research has been performed showing them safe in children under two, the most vulnerable population.

It is therefore no surprise nor secret that the chickenpox vaccine has failed to live up to its promises.    Even the CDC’s  Manual for the Surveillance of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases  admits that “As vaccination rates have increased, the majority of varicella cases now occur among vaccinated persons.”[1]  Wouldn’t an  effective  chickenpox vaccine result in the majority of varicella cases occurring in  non-vaccinated persons?

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,[2]  with 1 in 5 children receiving the original vaccine experiencing “breakthrough” infections.”[3]  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.[4]

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.”[5]    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 a  bad 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 children by age 6.

Buy One Get One: The Hidden Pathogens In Live Vaccines

Another problem is the use of euphemisms like  ‘weakened’ or ‘attenuated’ to describe live-virus containing vaccines, implying that they are less virulent. One of the basic methods used to create these ‘weakened’ vaccines is to serially passage the infectious agent through both and/or either animal and human biological fluids (e.g. bovine serum) and cells, giving the vaccine master seed stock an opportunity to become contaminated along the way with hidden disease vectors, including cancer-causing viruses.

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.[6]  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 have  contaminated oral vaccines  still 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 as  SV-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 the  Simian Virus 40 research  here]

They Know “Weakened” Vaccines Are Not Safe

These problems and controversies drove the vaccine industry to develop presumably “safer” vaccines, such as the “killed,” “toxoid,” “subunit,” “conjugate,” and now DNA-based vaccines. The earnest push towards these latter “improvements” tacitly reveal the original danger behind using the so-called “weakened” vaccines. And nowhere is this problem more evident today than in India where despite the  Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s  claims of “mission accomplished” in that country, over 45,000 reported vaccine-strain induced cases of  polio-like disease have been reported  as occurring in 2011 alone.   For the same reason that the wealthier countries like the US already phased them out, increasingly educated Indians are now outraged to learn that the billions of doses of oral polio vaccine given to their children actually contain a live virus  twice as lethal as the wild one  that has supposedly been eradicated. If only their proponents and active promoters, like  the Dalai Lama, knew the harm they are capable of doing.

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 powerful  immunotoxic 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.

    I agree on one thing. If you do not wish to vaccinate your child you should be free to not do so. Just inform your insurance company so that they are free to make the appropriate adjustments in your health insurance premiums.

    And you will be responsible for all medical costs associated with any preventable disease that your child gets that is not covered by insurance. And you can not avoid those costs via bankruptcy. If your child dies, well then, you can claim a Darwin Award. Lucky you

    what about someone who had the natural virus, then was force to take the vaccine? are they double troubled??

    Direct application to blisters with full strength Tea Tree OIl has been effective at reducing length of outbreaks and frequency. If shortterm healing pain is severe then application of clay will cool the skin and assist in healing lesions In some cases outbreaks have ceased entirely. Concurrent use of golden seal would be appropriate as a tea consumed.
    More aggressive conditions exacerbated by diet or environment should be consulted with an herbalist and/or aromatherapist.

    The future will look back at vaccines like today we look at bloodletting and other well meaning but wrong medical procedures. Same with all the cancer tissue removal instead of treatment.

    I was cured of shingles virtually overnight after doing a parasite cleanse and taking Cats Claw gel tablets I purchased from the Enrich. Not sure that the parasite cleanse had much to do with it. Cats Claw works on Shingles. I would not wish the disease on anyone. The mild symptoms I suffered, I caught it early, were very painful.

      Where did you purchase the Cat’s Claw from Enrich? Who sells it?

    Brilliant article. Makes sense. Seems we Baby Boomers were the guinea pigs of the world’s PTB! Luckily for us our immune systems were strong enough to handle it, but now its a number of generations later and alongside many other negative factors contributing to ruining the health of younger generations, vaccinations have become extremely dangerous to weakened immune systems.

    Nano colloidal silver cures herpes in a single 2 tablespoon dose, but take it for a week. 2 tablespoons under the tongue for 5 minutes, wash down with a wine glass of water.

    To make nano-colloidal silver, using a collodal silver machine, (I use the Colloidal Master, no financial interest), aerate the process with a small aquarium pump. Set the parts per million selector to MAX. Takes upto 8hours for a liter. Clean the silver electrodes several times. Make a new batch at least once a month. Keep in a dark bottle, in a dark cupboard away from electric points.

    They already know what causes the increase of shingles , they add it to our food , the metal iron. It was proven in a lab tech who died when he was working with the plague vaccine. He died because he had too much iron in his body which allowed for the ‘deactivated’ virus to kill him.

    “Individuals with hereditary hemochromatosis may be protected with subunit vaccines but should not be exposed to live-attenuated plague vaccines” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22896664
    When the iron gets high enough , the bacteria take over.
