Can People Receiving Live Virus Vaccines Transmit Vaccine Strain Virus to Others

 

I was fuzzy on how live virus vaccines work and what kind of impact they have on humans.

Dr. Mercola’s post today holds some really important information that we all need to understand to make both wise vaccine choices and to begin to make grassroots political choices.  We need to know more about this whole issue because it is very clear that our doctors and our public health officials do not know all the worrisome information about the impact of vaccines on all of us.  And, while we are living in a time when the vaccine noose is being tightened across the nation so that we will soon not have free choice, any real discussion of the whole issue is being shut down, erased, denied, and so forth.  This, folks, is how we got fluoride in our water–and now we can’t get it out easily because too many people are either profiting, or are way out on legal limbs, or do not want to be embarrassed as they recant and admit fluoride in the water is a really, really stupid and harmful practice as fluoride is extremely toxic in all sorts of ways.  Know, too, that some vaccines make the dangers of fluoride pale in comparison.

First, here are the live virus vaccines:  “Among live virus vaccines being used in the U.S. and other countries are measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox (varicella zoster), live virus (nasal spray) flu vaccine, shingles vaccine, and the rotavirus vaccine that’s given to infants for diarrhea.”  I know I’ve read somewhere that polio can be given, also, a live virus vaccine.

Barbara Loe-Fisher is the co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a non-profit charity dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defending the legal right for everyone to make vaccine choices.

She explains how you can shed live virus in body fluids whether you have a viral infection or have gotten a live attenuated viral vaccine:

“Live attenuated viral vaccines (LAV) that use live viruses try to, in essence, fool your immune system into believing that you’ve come into contact with a real virus, thereby stimulating the antibody response that, theoretically, will protect you,” she says.

“When you get these live viral vaccines, you shed live virus in your body fluids. Just like when you get a viral infection, you shed live virus. That’s how viral infections are transmitted.

Because viruses, unlike bacteria, need a living host… in order to multiply. What these viruses do is they try to disable the immune system and evade immune responses.”

Second, YES, anyone receiving a live virus vaccine can transmit the vaccine strain virus to others.  And, following that, these vaccine strain viruses can and do combine with wild viruses to form…???…whole new forms of viruses--and we have absolutely no idea of the impact of these recombining viruses on humans for either the short or the long term.  NO IDEA.  It’s the perfect illustration of “the law of unintended consequences.”

Do take some time to read this Mercola posting.  We all need to know and understand the information it contains:

Eating for Health as Seniors

The summer 2014 issue of Wise Traditions, the journal of The Weston A. Price Foundation, is all about aging.

Don’t think that because you are not yet old that this issue will not contain information that concerns you.  Many conditions encountered as a senior began in that senior’s earliest years.

Anyway, I am now a senior, and I’ve been interested in how I eat promotes my health.

Here’s a nice little sidebar of information from an article by PhD nutritionist Sylvia P. Onusic on how to make nutrition an “anti-aging” factor:

 

CONSERVING THE DIGESTIVE FIRE

As we age, our digestive forces weaken. It becomes harder for the body to make hydrochloric acid (for digesting protein), bile (for digesting fats) and digestive enzymes (for digesting carbohydrates, proteins and fats). That means that seniors are often not getting the full benefit of their food, even if they are eating well and the food is nutritious.

Attention to the digestibility of foods is key to ensuring optimal nutrition for senior diets. Soups and stews made with nourishing bone broth are ideal, as bone broth greatly aids the digestive process. Vegetables should be well cooked. Salads may not be the best choice for seniors—soups serve them better, being easier to digest. Vegetable purées made with butter and cream are great comfort foods for seniors. Lacto-fermented foods with every meal will help ease the digestive burden.

Government warnings to the contrary, raw milk is a great food for senior citizens. It contains all the enzymes needed for full digestion and nutrient assimilation and represents a complete nutrition package. It is our best source of glutathione, the body’s leading anti-oxidant. Fermented raw milk products, like yogurt and kefir, supply the digestive tract with beneficial bacteria, as well as digestive enzymes.

All grains should be properly prepared by soaking or sour leavening, for optimal digestion. Hard-to-digest grains like extruded breakfast cereals, granola, granola bars and muesli represent a difficult digestive burden for aging digestive tracts.

In addition to proper food preparation, supplements that can aid digestion include hydrochloric acid and ox bile; while the herbal preparation Swedish bitters aids in the digestive of protein and fatty foods.

The goal is not to live forever, but to ensure that all those years at the end are full of vigor and optimism. Making sure the diet is easy to digest will ensure that the “golden years” are truly filled with golden good health.
