Where Does The Fear Come From?
Things are so different today. Illness is a bad word. What used to be called a common childhood disease is now viewed as impending doom. Fevers, rashes and sicknesses that last longer than a few hours are treated like the plague. Anything that can be passed from one person to another is a death sentence. These types of exaggerations fill many news stories. With those exaggerations, as well as how other fear tactics are used, including the mantra that the almighty vaccine is the answer no matter the question, no wonder people feel anxious about disease today!
I don’t know why a growing number of news sources that are reporting on diseases are resorting to such exaggeration. Take the latest disease story in the news, the Disney measles story. Pre-vaccine hysteria, we recognized that after a childhood illness ran its course that natural immunity would be gained. Nowadays, rather than promote natural immunity, we’re being ushered and demanded to get vaccines. I have to ask why, especially why the measles vaccine (MMR), when this particular vaccine clearly isn’t working.We know that it isn’t working because several of the people who came down with the measles in the recent Disney outbreak were vaccinated. That fact – that vaccinated individuals got the disease that their vaccine was supposed to prevent – negates the current media feeding frenzy. You’d think focusing on those vaccinated individuals who fell ill is a more of a breaking news story. You’d think that because we’re told so many times that vaccines are always life-saving, safe and effective, effective in preventing disease. Evidently, they are not.
“Over $3 billion has been paid out to victims of vaccine reactions. Not $3 million. Not $30 million. Not even $300 million, but $3 billion. Are we paying that much money to victims of pretend reactions? I think not.” – Dr Bob Sears
Worried About Measles & Other Viruses?
Ensure Adequate Levels of Vitamin A
- those children that have the worst symptoms during and following measles have lowest levels of vitamin a
- such children are the most likely develop eye symptoms during measles
- they are also likely to have a fever above 40 degrees (104 F) and require hospitalisation
- they are the children most likely to die from measles
- supplementing with vitamin a dramatically reduces the risks of severe illness or death associated with measles
- this has been demonstrated in Africa where a 700% reduction in children dying from measles followed with vitamin a supplementation
Where Do You Get Vitamin A From In Diet?
- grass fed organic egg yolks
- grass fed organic butter
- grass fed organic liver
- fermented cod liver oil
- grass fed organic full fat cream
When you hear think about vitamin A foods, what sources come to mind? Most nutrition books and internet sources list the following as excellent sources of vitamin A:
- Sweet potatoes
- Dark leafy greens
- Bell peppersAlthough taken for granted as ideal vitamin A foods, these plants provide only the precursor to vitamin A, carotenoids. Interestingly, we need to be consuming true vitamin A foods, foods containing retinol, to meet our vitamin A requirements.The most important fact about vitamin A is the difference between retinoids and cartenoids. The vitamin A from animal sources is retinoids, also called retinol, while plant source vitamin A is carotenoids, such as beta carotene.Animal sources of retinol is bio-available, which means the body can utilize it. The vitamin A from plant sources, in contrast, must first be converted to retinol to be useful in the body. This poses two big problems.First, when we are in pristine health, it requires at least six units of carotenes to convert into 1 unit of retinol (source). To put this in perspective, that means one must eat 4 1/2 pounds of carrots to potentially get the amount of useable A as in 3 oz. of beef liver (source). What happens if we have digestive issues, hormone imbalances, or other health problems? It requires even more units of carotene in the ratio.Second, the carotene-to-retinol conversion is HIGHLY compromised. As a matter of fact, this conversion is negligible for many individuals. This conversion is virtually insignificant:
Common Foods That Contain Vitamin D
- oily fish
- cod liver oil
- orange juice
- beef liver
- ultraviolet lamps
Supplementing with Vitamin DIn regards to supplementation, I would like to share what Dr. Mercola wrote on his website:
If You Opt for a Vitamin D Supplement…If your circumstances don’t allow you to access the sun or a high-quality tanning bed, then you really only have one option if you want to raise your vitamin D, and that is to take a vitamin D supplement (make sure it is vitamin D3, not D2). I recommend regularly testing your levels to make sure you’re staying within the therapeutic range of 50-70 ng/ml year-round. The Society Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee recommends the following dosages. Keep in mind that these guidelines are thought to allow most people to reach a vitamin D level of 30 ng/ml, which many still consider suboptimal for disease prevention.
GrassrootsHealth offers a helpful chart showing the average adult dose required to reach healthy vitamin D levels based upon your measured starting point. Many experts agree that 35 IUs of vitamin D per pound of body weight could be used as an estimate for your ideal dose, but you’ll need to test your levels to find out the dosage that’s right for you.
- Neonates: 400 to 1,000 IUs per day
- Children one year of age and above: 600 to 1,000 IUs per day
- Adults: 1,500 to 2,000 IUs per day
Get Your Levels CheckedAnother way to know whats going on with your body is to get some testing done in relation to your levels of vitamin d. You can ask your doctor to do a screening for you (you may have to be quite firm about your request) or you could purchase a kit like this one.

Measle Vaccines Spreads Measles
Measles Vaccine Reactions Not So Rare
- As for any vaccine, vaccination with M-M-R II may not result in protection in 100% of vaccines.
M-M-R II has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or potential to impair fertility.
Not So Safe & Not So Effective
What About Deaths From Measles?
“There have been no measles deaths reported in the U.S. since 2003.
“It has killed no one. It can kill about 1 person in every 1000 cases. Will someone die of measles in the United States in the years to come? Maybe. But it hasn’t killed anyone in the past 15 years or more.” – Dr Bob Sears
Merck Lawsuit For Fraud
defraud the United States through Merck’s ongoing scheme to sell the government a mumps vaccine that is mislabeled, misbranded, adulterated and falsely certified as having an efficacy rate that is significantly higher than it actually is.
