Deadly Whooping Cough Bacteria hits Australia again, vaccines useless

submit to reddit

The bacterium that causes whooping cough has mutated in Australia, most likely in response to the vaccine used to prevent the disease, with a possible reduced effectiveness of the vaccine as a result, a new study shows.

A team of researchers analyzed strains of the virus from across Australia and found that many strains no longer produce a key surface protein called pertactin.

About 80 per cent of the 2012 whooping cough cases in Australia studied by the team were caused by pertactin-free strains. Pertactin is one of the three proteins present in the vaccine currently used in Australia.

“It’s like a game of hide and seek. It is harder for the antibodies made by the body’s immune system in response to vaccination to ‘search and destroy’ the whooping cough bacteria which lack pertactin,” says the senior author of the study.

Australia has only recently emerged from an epidemic of whooping cough that went on for an unusually long period with about 142,000 cases from 2008 to 2012. Although the number of cases identified was greatly increased by more and better testing, the epidemic was still a major one. Nine babies died of whooping cough during the five years.

Babies need to be immunized at six to eight weeks of age, four months and six months, with a booster at four years.

    Its probably the vaccine whats causing it in the first place, like in India where 60.000 children died of polio after polio vaccinations(brought to you by mass murderer bill and melinda gates), before that there was no epidemic of that proportion, vaccines are there to keep your life expectancy low, its a soft kill weapon they dont want to care for the elderly, do your job as a good little slave, dont think, than when you start to get older just die, thats their mentality, dont believe me, look it up, research it, how the Rockefeller Foundation was set up along with the vaccine industrie in the early XX.th Century, they also put aluminium, mercury and cells from killed(aborted) babies, HeLa cell lines(immortal cell-line discovered in the 50’s from an afro-american patient who had a very rare form of cancer), and of course the viruses into the vaccines that some of are not as harmless as you might think giving you autoimmun disorders back and forth, authism, chrons, cancer, polio, flue, the list goes on keep your children away from vaccines, You have been warned,
