Babies whose mothers were vaccinated against measles as children may be more susceptible to measles than those born to mothers who were not vaccinated. The investigators believe that this might have contributed to the increase in the number of cases of measles in the US between 1989 and 1991.
Infants up to 15 months of age represented only 2% of the US population between 1989 and 1991, according to the Centers for Disease Control. But this group of infants accounted for 24% of the 55,622 cases of measles reported during that period. Women who are vaccinated against the disease have lower levels of infection-fighting antibodies in their blood than those who were infected naturally. Therefore, vaccinated mothers pass on less immunity to their infants, and these children may be more susceptible to infection.
To test this theory, Papania's team interviewed the mothers of 128 infants who were 15 months or younger and had been exposed to measles between 1990 and 1992. In infants whose mothers were born after the measles vaccine was licensed in 1963, the measles rate was 33%. In infants born to older mothers, the rate was only 12%.

COMMENT: Well folks, here we have it straight from the experts at the CDC and published in the journal of Pediatrics no less. This is the first evidence of have seen which clearly documents generational complications of immunizations. What really floors me is that the investigators take this observation and use it to promote even more aggressive immunization practices. How can they be so blind? There are clearly many short-term complications of immunizations as this newsletter has described, but one must also contend with generational consequences of immunizations. This study clearly shows that if you immunize your female child you will TRIPLE her likelihood of raising a child who will eventually come down with measles. I believe this is a classic study and do not plan on losing it as it is powerful evidence of the damage of these vaccines. The CDC is so blinded that they never realized it could be used against them.
