Whooping Cough Epidemic Caused by Virulent New Pertussis Strain—And It’s the Result of Vaccine

whooping cough vaccineThe CDC and NIH keep pushing the pertussis vaccine, in spite of info that it’s causing the new whooping cough epidemic that is 10 times more deadly than the old whooping cough.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) would prefer that you remain unaware of a couple of highly significant facts about the whooping cough resurgence. It is most likely caused by the pertussis vaccine and it’s ten times more deadly than the original variety.

To top it all off, they are blaming the unvaccinated for the new more lethal strain of whooping cough, and they are pushing people ever harder to be vaccinated with the same vaccine that’s almost certainly responsible for it!

More than one new strain of Bordetella pertussishas been found. However, the one that seems to consistently pop up in different countries is called ptxP3.

Medical Journal Discussions of ptxP3

In BioMed Central’s 2008 report by Audrey J. King, et al, several changes in B. pertussis were noted. Significantly, the article discusses a divergence from the vaccine strains and the new types, stating:

In the Netherlands this divergence between vaccine and circulating strains has played a role in the reemergence of pertussis.(1)

The August 2009 issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases published research by Frits R. Mooi, et al, entitled “Bordetella pertussis Strains with Increased Toxin Production Associated with Pertussis Resurgence”. This paper’s introduction states:

We present evidence that in the Netherlands the dramatic increase in pertussis is temporally associated with the emergence of Bordetella pertussis strains carrying a novel allele for the pertussis toxin promoter, which confers increased pertussis toxin (ptx) production. Epidemiologic data suggest that these strains are more virulent in humans.(2)

The Mooi report focuses on the virulence of the new whooping cough strain and makes a direct association with the vaccine. It points out that the strain was first isolated in the United States in 1984, and that the virulent ptxP3 strains have been replacing the vaccines’ ptxP1 strains. They also note that the greater prevalence of whooping cough in older age groups (that is, adolescents and adults) is directly related to the new ptxP3 strains.

The ptxP3’s greater virulence is shown in a table of increases in illness and death in The Netherlands between the years 1981-1992 and 1993-2004. The salient points are reproduced here:

 

Parameter Deaths/
100,000
1981-1992 0.00057
1993-2004 0.00582
Increase 10.21 times greater

In November 2010, BMC Genomics published “Comparative genomics of prevaccination and modern Bordetella pertussis strains” by Marieke J Bart, et al. This paper focuses on “how B. pertussis has adapted to vaccination”(3). That leaves little room for question about the issue. The new strains of B. pertussis have developed in response to vaccinations for whooping cough.

Lest there be any doubt that the CDC is fully aware that a new strain of B. pertussis is causing the new epidemic of whooping cough, refer to Bordetella pertussis Strains with Increased Toxin Production Associated with Pertussis Resurgence*, which includes a graph created for the Mooi article quoted above.

*It has just come to my attention that, unfortunately, the CDC has moved or removed this page. I’m quite sorry. However, the links entitled, “Bordetella pertussis Strains with Increased Toxin Production Associated with Pertussis Resurgence” in the reference section below contain the same information, albeit in more scientific jargon. 26 September 2011

Vaccination Insanity

There can be no doubt that the agencies responsible for tracking disease and our vaccination programs are fully aware of the fact that the unvaccinated cannot be held responsible for the outbreaks of whooping cough. They also know that the new strains are more than ten times deadlier, and that the reason is adaptations to existing vaccines.

Yet, what is their strong recommendation to the general public? It’s to vaccinate even more! As discussed in the prior article, Whooping Cough Outbreaks in Vaccinated Children Become More and More Frequent, the B. pertussis vaccine carries grave risks.

So, they’re advising ever more vaccinations with the vaccine that’s creating a far more virulent form of whooping cough, cannot protect against the disease it’s creating—and and carries severe risks of death and lifelong disability!

Not only are these agencies not telling us the truth about the whooping cough outbreaks, but they are also misleading us. They have told us nothing about the ten-fold increased rate of death. They have told us nothing of its cause. They have blamed those who cannot possibly have been the cause of the new disease. And they push us to get vaccinated with the cause of the new deadlier strains!

Is there any reason to doubt that the CDC, the NIH, and other agencies are beholden to Big Pharma? Is there any reason to trust anything that they suggest?

This article is with deep appreciation to the anonymous reader who provided a reference of the reality of the new strains of whooping cough. Thank you!
