As we publish February Issue 260 of Positive Health PH Online I have been overwhelmed by the vast torrents of emotional, psychological, political enmity / conflict permeating throughout all factions of society. I have been constantly appalled by the brazenly discourteous even libellous language – words including liar, cheat - spoken by journalists and politicians alike which have become ‘normal’. As a long-standing publisher, I have always been wary of falling foul of libel laws, which don’t appear to apply to the broadcast or social media anymore.
Political divisions throughout the UK, following the Conservative party majority victory in the December 2019 election, have ‘relocated’ to the Labour party election of a new leader. Also, a fault line has broken out within the Royal Family with the transmigration to Canada of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Before the initiation of mass vaccination programs for measles, mothers who had measles as children protected their infants through the transfer of maternal antibodies. However, naturally acquired immunity and vaccine-induced immunity are qualitatively different. Moms who get measles vaccines instead of experiencing the actual illness have less immunity to offer their babies, resulting in a “susceptibility gap” between early infancy and the first ostensibly protective measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine at 12 to 15 months of age.
“A Luxembourg-based study published in 2000 confirmed the susceptibility gap in an interesting way. The researchers compared serum samples from European adolescents who had been vaccinated around 18 months of age to serum samples from Nigerian mothers who had not been vaccinated but had experienced natural measles infection at a young age. They then looked at the capacity of the antibodies detected in the serum to “neutralize” various wild-type measles virus strains. The researchers found that the sera from mothers with natural measles immunity substantially outperformed the sera from the vaccinated teens: only two of 20 strains of virus “resisted neutralization” in the Nigerian mothers’ group, but 10 of 20 viral strains resisted neutralization in the vaccination group. This complex analysis led the authors to posit greater measles vulnerability in infants born to vaccinated mothers.
“…many vaccinees may eventually become susceptible to vaccine-modified measles…and consequently complicate measles control strategies.”
As ever, the divisions between Conventional (Drug) and Natural or Alternative Medicine persist, with the labelling of any and all questioning of vaccine safety relegated to the derogatory and insulting position of “Fake News”, as though all scientific and medical knowledge is forever static and the property solely of medical professionals, despite the obvious reality that progress results from updating what was previously regarded as the truth. Also note that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was set up by National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 to provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines.
Important notes of optimism appear to be emerging from research published in the Letters to the Editor describing details including: The molecule PJ34 which triggers the self-destruction of pancreatic cancer cells published in Oncotarget; Cancer treatments complemented with nanomaterials may be more effective than traditional treatments; Fibroblasts trigger and facilitate tumour growth in the development of breast cancer published in Nature Communications. And, away from the Letters to the Editor, very recent research from Cardiff University has identified a new type of T-cell receptor, known as TCR for short, which recognizes and kills most human cancer types while ignoring healthy cells, published in walesonline.co.uk.
I fervently hope that the world of Medicine will wake up one day soon to realize that the core concept of Integrated Medicine / Healthcare of Positive Health PH Online is a superior system to that practised today which excludes all complementary and alternative treatment modalities apart from drug-based pharmaceuticals and surgery.
