Six false beliefs

Six false beliefs around immunization

• Only the hygiene has led to the disappearance of the disease infectieusesC’is one of the arguments frequently advanced by the opponents of vaccination

It is based on the observation that, for some diseases, mortality has decreased even before the arrival of the vaccine. This can be explained by the improvement of care and hygiene.

But to see the effectiveness of a vaccination, the indicator most relevant is not the number of deaths, but the total number of people infected. In this case, the data clearly show that the introduction of the vaccine is followed by a decrease, or even disappearance, of the disease.

The example of Japan is instructive.

In 1975, following side effects very rare resulting in the death of two children, the vaccination program against whooping cough is suspended. The coverage of immunization is collapsing and the number of patients going from 373 in 1974 to more than 13,000 in 1979. In 1981, the program is resumed, quickly followed by a decrease in the number of cases. However, between 1975 and 1981, Japan has not experienced a drastic change in terms of hygiene. Moreover, the bacterium responsible for whooping cough does not depend on sanitary conditions, since its only reservoir is man and is transmitted by air (coughing).

• Multiply the vaccines at night the immune system enfantsÀ birth, children move from a sterile environment to a world populated with billions of micro-organisms. Fortunately, their immune system can already cope with it, that it may well face several vaccines at the same time.

Better yet, the vaccines – which contain versions of killed or attenuated viruses and bacteria, stimulate the immune system, allowing him to produce defenses.

An independent study published in 2002 in the journal Pediatrics estimated that the immune system of young children may theoretically respond to 10,000 vaccines at once. “If 11 vaccines were given at once to a child, about 0.1 % of his immune system would be mobilized”, indicated the authors.

In addition, vaccinate as early as possible children can protect against certain contagious diseases, such as pertussis, measles and Haemophilus influenzae type b.

. It is actually possible to become immune to a disease by the contractor.

But it makes running much more risk than the vaccination • innate immunity is sufficient to cope with the maladiesÀ birth, newborns are protected against certain diseases, thanks to antibodies passed on by their mother. But this immunity disappears after four months at the most. “It is a partial protection, transient and insufficient,” says professor Alain Fischer. Breastfeeding also brings on elements of defence, but, again, these only confer a partial protection, which is insufficient.

It is actually possible to become immune to a disease by the contractor. But it makes running much more risk than the vaccination.

Thus, a person who catches the measles without being vaccinated will have one chance in 500 of dying. Complete immunization (two doses), it prevents them from getting the disease.

Of course, adverse events can occur, but they are rare and usually not serious. The rate of reports, all severities combined was 1. .25 cases per 100,000 doses of vaccine in the world. • The vaccines cause the autismeEn 1998, the scientific journal The Lancet publishes a study suggesting that the vaccination of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine could cause autism. Despite the many limitations involved in the study – it is based on 12 cases and no control group, this hypothesis is spreading like wildfire. Very quickly, new studies are conducted, but none of them allows to validate this hypothesis. In 2004, six years after publication, 10 of the 12 authors announce the removal of their signature. “No link has been established between the MMR vaccine and autism as the data were insufficient,” they write. Subsequently, it has been revealed that the fraudulent manipulation of data had been carried out and that the director of the study, Andrew Wakefield, had received funding from lawyers who have undertaken to continue producing vaccines. In 2010, the scientific journal has finally made the decision to remove the study. In twenty years, no scientific team in the world has not found a link between autism and MMR vaccine. Sales of vaccines have been reported to 4. .57 billion euros in the laboratory, or 13.

.5% of its total turnover • vaccines can cause the sudden death of the nourrissonOn speaks of sudden infant death syndrome if a child under 2 years of age in good health dies suddenly, without the post-mortem examinations, be able to explain the reasons why.

In the past twenty years, isolated observations and case studies have suggested a possible association between these deaths and the vaccinations. However, not all epidemiological studies agree that there is no causal link. One of them, conducted over 470.

.000 births in England, even suggested that vaccination could be a protective factor.

For the time being, the sudden infant death syndrome remains a poorly understood phenomenon, but the sleeping on the belly or on the side as well as the passive smoking and antenatal check-up (when the mother smoked before birth) are two known risk factors.

• The extension of the obligation meets the interests économiquesOui, but to a lesser extent.

In fact, at least 70 % of children in France have already received 8 vaccines further concerned by the extension of the obligation. For this reason, “the financial impact of this measure is extremely limited,” says the laboratory Sanofi, which produces the hexavalent vaccine Hexyon. In 2016, sales of vaccines were reported to 4. .57 billion euros in the laboratory, or 13.

.5% of its total turnover. Aluminum: a controversy very françaiseDe all the concerns over vaccines, those relating to the adjuvants, aluminum-based are among the most vivid. These molecules are essential to the effectiveness of most vaccines, are suspected to be harmful. This scientific controversy is very French and has its origin in the work carried out by a single team of researchers in the world, installed in France. For the past twenty years, they try to establish a link between aluminum in vaccines and the occurrence of muscle damage called myofasciites to macrophages, which are associated with muscle pain and fatigue.

Strange fact, France concentrates more than 95% of cases of myofasciite to macrophages detected in the world (457 according to the latest study, 1000 according to the association of mutual Assistance to the sick of myofasciite to macrophages). Gold aluminum is used as an adjuvant on the planet as a whole since 1926, without any warning signal has been issued by any country.

In a report released in 2016, the national Academy of pharmacy stressed that”a single new case (myofasciite to macrophages) would have occurred since 2012, while currently approximately 12 million doses of vaccine containing an alum-based adjuvant are administered each year in France”.

Exposure to aluminum can also be done by food, water and cosmetics. The maximum dose of aluminum per vaccine is only 0. .85 mg, which is much less than the limit weekly intake set by the international standards of the WHO.

While acknowledging the suffering endured by patients, the Academy of pharmacy believes that an analysis of the French studies did not establish a causal link with the adjuvants aluminium. . .
