Physician to British Press: Stop Blaming Wakefield - Page 2

post #21 of 29

He had asthma, he was vaccinated for measles--but when?  Did he recently receive an MMR?  Or another vaccine that might have made his immune system malfunction? Was he on drugs?

 

There are so many holes here, it's ridiculous.

Also, if he was on steroids to control the asthma, his immune system would have been suppressed.

he had issues  - He had underlying health problems but his mother, Angela Colfer, is angry that he was not diagnosed with measles until after his death despite him being seen by doctors hours before he died.

 

according to - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-22274206

 

and now they are giving some single shots too

interesting - (I was told by an "older" Dr. this was due to lack of training/exposure in younger Dr.s/MD, etc)

 

It added that it can be difficult to diagnose measles because many of the symptoms are similar to other viral illnesses particularly in the early stages.

The other issue is measles tends to be way over diagnosed.

 

 

Measles Over Diagnosed – Up to 7400%

A.  Laboratory confirmed cases of measles, mumps, and rubella, England and Wales: October to December 2004

Notified: 474, Tested: 589†, Confirmed cases: 8

RATE OF OVERDIAGNOSIS:- 589/8 = proportionately 7400% or 74 times overdiagnosed

SOURCE: CDR Weekly, Volume 15 Number 12 Published: 24 March 2005

[Note from Source: "†Some oral fluid specimens were submitted early from suspected cases and may not have been subsequently notified, thus the proportion tested is artificially high for this quarter."]

B.  Total confirmed cases of measles and oral fluid IgM antibody tests in cases notified to ONS*: weeks 40-52/2005

Notified: 408, Tested: 343, Confirmed cases: 22

RATE OF OVERDIAGNOSIS:- 343/22 = proportionately 1560 % or 15.6 times overdiagnosed

SOURCE: CDR Weekly, Volume 16 Number 12 Published on: 23 March 2006

Can you support your statement with any evidence?

Tylenol depletes glutathione. I assume it was given to this man because he had a fever, although that wasn't mentioned. Why else would it be given? It's really common knowledge that treating a fever, especially one that is due to an infectious disease, can cause more harm than good and can be quite dangerous.

Paracetamol (Tylenol) is in common use in the UK for treating headaches, mild pain relief (including aches and pains related to feeling generally unwell) as well as a fever suppressant. It's an over the counter medicine here so is not prescribed, but can be recommended.

I don't know what glutathione is.

Glutathione is essential for heavy metal excretion--like the thimerosal and/or aluminum in vaccines.

Prosciencemum, glutathione has been discussed here before, on a thread where you were quite active:

http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1368324/the-supposed-flu-during-pregnancy-autism-link

Post #20: "Without sufficient vitamin D, you don't produce glutathione. Glutathione is used by the body to eliminate heavy metals, but without glutathione, those heavy metals stay in the body--and cross the blood/brain barrier. They also cause autoimmune disorders--which are very common in autistic children, and there are even studies indicating that autistic children tend to have a strong family history of autoimmune disorder. So someone with vitamin D deficiency would be at risk for reacting badly to the heavy metals in vaccines."

I'm well aware of what Tylenol is - isn't everybody? I assume the Tylenol was given for fever as fever and measles usually go hand in hand, although I"m sure this isn't always the case. I'm also making an assumption because it's fairly commonplace for medical people to throw Tylenol at people  - even when there is no good reason to do it. (ie feeling generally unwell)

 

I'm also well aware of it's dangers - just because something is in common use, doesn't make it without its problems/risks/dangers. I will never use Tylenol either for myself or my children - not with effective and much safer alternatives available.
