What They Don’t Tell You About Tetanus Vaccine

Lecture on Vaccines, Disease and Health (2014)

Dr Suzanne Humphries

Film Review

These three videos contain a two-hour talk vaccine researcher Dr Suzanne Humphries gave in Sweden in 2014. A board certified nephrologist, Humphries is regarded as one of the foremost experts on the long term safety and efficacy of vaccines.

At the request of her hosts, in this talk Humphries provides a summary of the peer-reviewed research into the tetanus vaccine, the adverse effects of DTP (diptheria, tetanus, pertusis) vaccine, particularly in infants, and the pathophysiology* of autism.

Humphries begins by describing the history of tetanus vaccine. Tetanus is caused by clostridium tetani, an organism naturally occurring in the large intestine of horses. Cases of tetanus dramatically declined when the horse was replaced by the automobile. As tetanus toxin (the cause of lockjaw) is only created in anaeorbic** wound conditions, improved wound care has nearly eliminated the condition in the developed world.

Tetanus vaccine has never been studied in randomized controlled trials to determine whether it actually prevents tetanus. A Finish study from 1969-85 revealed that 80% of the children who died from tetanus had been vaccinated.

For this reason, Humphries stresses that everyone (vaccinated or not) needs to have good knowledge of appropriate wound care. The specific principles Humphries stresses are

  • Ensuring all foreign bodies are removed from wounds (if you can’t get a splinter out yourself, get your doctor to do it).
  • Don’t stop bleeding – allow wounds to bleed freely until blood clots on its own.
  • Flush wounds with water followed by sodium ascorbate and/or colloidal silver (200-500 ppm). void using peroxide as this kills cells.
  • Where possible use steristrips (rather than stitches) to close wounds, as they don’t seal off wounds AS stitches do.

Studies show high doses of Vitamin C (one gram per kilogram) are also helpful in preventing tetanus following a deep wound.

DPT Vaccine

Humphries goes on to talk about serious side effects associated with the DTP (and the newer DTap) vaccine, especially in infants.She also cites studies revealing studies showing a decrease in asthma and sinus infections in children who postpone starting DTP injections until after one year of age, as well as studies showing less asthma, need for antibiotics or autoimmune disease in children who don’t receive the DTP at all.

She attributes the link between DTP and DTap and asthma, allergy and autoimmune disease to the neurotoxin aluminum, used as an adjuvant in nearly all vaccines.

The Pathophysiology of Autism

For me her comments regarding autism (in the second video) were the most interesting to me. Humprhies doesn’t believe vaccination in itself is sufficient to cause autism. According to her research, in most cases the pathophysiology of autism (as well as schizophrenia and major depression) involves maternal immune activation (“inflammation”) triggered by high maternal stress during pregnancy. Epidemiological studies suggest that exclusive breast feeding for six months suppresses this inflammation, whereas exposure to high doses of aluminum during the first year tends to aggravate it.

Studies show the US (as of 2014) had the highest rate of neurodevelopmental disorders, autism and ADHD in the developed world. Interestingly as other industrialized countries  adopted the US childhood vaccination school, they, too, would note a steep increase in these disorders.


*Pathophysiology refers to the study of the disordered physiological processes that cause, result from, or are otherwise associated with a disease or injury.

**Anaerobic means living or occurring in the absence of free oxygen.

 

 

The Law that Makes Taxpayers Liable for All Vaccine Injuries

1986: The Act

Directed by Dr Andy Wakefield (2020)

Film Review

1986: The Act, Dr Andy Wakefield’s* sequel to Vaxxed was just released last week. The price to rent the 2 1/2 hour film is steep – $US12.99. Some may want to wait until the price comes down. People can rent the film at https://7thchakrafilms.com/home-page

This documentary, simply, is a history of the 1986 US National Vaccine Injury Act. This legislation guarantees pharmaceutical companies totally immunity from liability for adverse reactions to vaccines by transferring the liability to US taxpayers. It also creates a special vaccine court to decide on the merit of the hundreds of disabled children who file claims every year. President Reagan (a strong opponent of big government) threatened to veto the bill. However he caved in and signed the law when Wyeth threatened to withdraw the Pertussis vaccine from the DPT (trivalent diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus vaccine).

The history of vaccine injury in the US is long, complicated and politically corrupt. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to learn the CIA was directly involved in suppressing public information about adverse vaccine side effects owing to some bizarre Cold War competition with the Soviets over vaccine supremacy (???).

It was largely due to CIA interference that 63 million Americans were injected with the cancer-causing SV40 between 1955-63 and thousands of children suffered from acute encephalopathy following inoculation with the cellular pertussis vaccine.** Available in other countries in 1981, the acellular pertussis vaccine wouldn’t be mandated for use in US infants until 1996. CIA interference is also implicated in the failure of the FDA to shut down polio vaccine production at Cutter Laboratories in 1954, after an NIH researcher discovered their vaccine contained live (as opposed to inactivated polio vaccine). Eventually 40,000 children would develop polio from the Cutter vaccine, 164 would experience paralysis and 10 would die.

1986 wasn’t the first year the US government assumed liability for vaccine injuries. In 1976 a swine flu vaccine was rushed to market with inadequate testing after four soldiers contracted swine flu at Fort Dix. When the insurance industry refused to issue liability insurance, the federal government assumed liability. In this case, 200 people caught swine flu with one death. In contrast the the vaccine caused 58 deaths, 532 cases of paralysis, and thousands of lawsuits against the US government.

The 1986 law provides that claims must be filed within three years of learning of the vaccine injury (especially onerous given most parents have never heard of the vaccine court). Hearings are closed to the public, have no discovery process and are run by a special master (as opposed to a judge). The Act initially included a table of recognized injuries (developed by the CDC) which were automatically compensated. In the beginning,  regressive encepalopathy (in which seizures and autism are often a major outcome) was an on table condition, which meant 95% of autism/seizure cases received compensation.

After the incidence of autism began to skyrocket in the early 1990s, Clinton’s Secretary of Health and Human Services removed regressive encephalopathy and many other common vaccine injuries from the CDC table. This, in turn, forced parents to prove a direct link between the vaccine and their child’s disability, which is extremely difficult as most of the research is suppressed.

The most serious downstream effect of the total immunity 1986 Act granted pharmaceutical companies is the removal of any incentive on their part to study (and guarantee) the long term safety of their vaccines.


*The mainstream media continues to crucify Wakefield for his supposedly fraudulent 1998 Lancet paper. This article probably gives the best legal synopsis of the fraudulent case Big Pharma’s concocted against him (https://www.ageofautism.com/2020/03/why-we-cannot-believe-brian-deer-about-andrew-wakefield.html).

**In 1976, the FDA commissioned a study (which was suppressed) revealing that 1 in 300 children receiving cellular pertussis vaccine developed generalized seizures, and 1 in 214 developed other serious neurological reactions.

 

How Pertussis Vaccine Spreads Whooping Cough

In this excerpt of Dr Suzanne Humphries’ testimony to the West Virginia Education Committee, she discusses the failure of western doctors to diagnose whooping cough (which is far more prevalent than public authorities admits). She also explains the failure of the pertussis vaccine to activate cell-mediated immunity (explained in more detail in her presentation on herd immunity – see Vaccines: The Myth of Herd Immunity). This relates to two potentially dangerous outcomes a) a high incidence of vaccinated patients going on to develop whooping cough and b) a high incidence of vaccinated patients becoming pertussis carriers owing to viral shedding caused by the vaccine.
