So, I'm not the usual reader of Good Housekeeping (March 2004 issue, btw) but it was hanging around my mom's house during a visit and I needed something to fight insomnia. There was a cover piece about the "Cough that Won't Quit" so I thought it would have some interesting info inside about pertussis. Boy was I in for a shock.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Today, however, an aggressive antivaccine campaign has influenced thousands of parents to refuse to immunize their children. So kids are contracting this bacterial infection, then spreading it to teenagers and adults (whose immunity to the disease has dropped), as well as to infants (who have not yet received their full series of vaccinations).</td>
</tr></table></div>
WTF?!? So all these mucous-dripping, viral- and bacterial-laden, non-vaccinated kids are the source of all our woes? Puhleeze! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Of course, no mention is made about even if *all* of the children were vaccinated, there are still those where the vaccine didn't work <b>like it was supposed to</b> and they get pertussis anyway. What is the supposed efficacy rate? About 75%? That's still one kid in four. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
What a nasty, uninformed piece of "journalism."

Pertussis has always been around in the older population(teens/adults),but it was just called something else.This piece and others like it is a just primer to get people ready for mandated pertussis vaccine boosters.Plus it doesn't hurt to stigmatize non-vaccinators a bit more in order to get them to vaccinate.<br><br>
It is unfortunate,but most parents reading that magazine will believe it and would shun your children if they found out they are unvaccinated.

Be ware of the diagnosis "chronic atypical bronchitis"...<br><br>
...that is a "medical-eze" for "whooping cough".<br><br>
I am so sick of this...I recall when my parents refused to subscribe to "Readers' Digest" because of its very pro-vaccine stand in the 1950's...nothing ever changes!<br><br>
Except I am grateful to all of you "aggressive anti-vaxers" at MDC and in NIVC, since this movement was not around in the 1950's.<br><br>
Most people who read GH are not real savvy about vaccinations, so the target audience will not look further for any real information, so the article will have the desired effect which is to create hysterical reactions to discovering people are not vaccinated.<br><br>
Very sad.

LAME! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> This is what I dont get about all these "mainstream" magazines. I cant imagine that there cannot be ONE person who works on those articles that will take the time to research before they write an article? I mean are they planning on keeping their head up their butt forever or what?!<br><br>
I love how its always blamed on the non vax kids. Too bad our kids are the healthiest ones! Go to a park anyday of the week and see who the "mucous-dripping, viral- and bacterial-laden" kids really are...........THE VAXED ONES.

I didn't read the article and probably won't since I have liked that magazine...but today there is a different reason for persistant coughs lasting for weeks... It is called "CHEMTRAILS".<br><br>
they are these hideous long lines of "contrales" that morph into "clouds". They are loaded with toxins such as barium and alnimum, mycoplasma. They are designed to lower our immune systems.<br><br>
We had persistant coughing here for weeks on end last fall. Couldn't get rid it. After much research chemtrails is what I found. That and HAARP, ELF, GWEN.<br><br>
A way to help is to take hydrogen peroxide baths. Build a chem-buster and gift the local towers.<br><br>
I really do wish mainstream media (don't forgot who owns them: mega corps!) Advertising $$$$ would get a backbone and actually inform us about the real news instead of this constant barrage of propaganda we are spoon food on a dialy basis.

Yes, CerridwenLorelei. It is for the fully vaccinated that the diagnosis of "atypical chronic bronchitis" is reserved.<br><br>
Would not want anyone to know that this dangerous vaccination does not work either.<br><br>
Would not want to take that chance.<br><br>
NO!

The extremely irritating thing is that these diseases were declining long before vaccinations were ever introduced. Of course NO ONE especially the pharmecutical companies are going to admit to this- UGH!<br><br>
And others are so dependant on chemical fix-alls that they will never believe the truth that is put in front of them.<br><br>
I agree we should take action!
