The U.S. Is Exporting Viral Anti-Vaxxer Content to Brazil A U.S. anti-vaccination website that was removed from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube earlier this year has found a new home for its content: Brazil. U.S. website Natural News accounted for almost one-third of all the misinformation found on social media and other websites targeting people in Brazil, according to a new study from the Brazilian Society of Immunizations and Avaaz, a non-profit human rights activist network. “Of the anti-vaccination misinformation we investigated, which had been debunked by the most relevant fact-checking agencies in Brazil, much of the content was originally produced in the U.S. and has been reposted by Brazilian accounts,” says the report, entitled “Is Fake News Making Us Sick?”. Natural News is one of the best-known anti-vaccination websites in the U.S., but in June it suffered a significant blow when Facebook removed its account, which had amassed 3 million followers. YouTube and Twitter also removed accounts linked to the website, and Google down-ranked it in search listings back in 2017.
Anti-Vax Views Have Gone Viral at the Ohio Statehouse Ohio has two main anti-vaccine lobbying groups. They are Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom (OAMF) and Health Freedom Ohio, (HFO). These organizations work somewhat in tandem with each other, although OAMF spends more time on community outreach while HFO focuses on influencing policymakers. Both of these groups would decry being called anti-vax, instead insisting that they are “vaccine risk aware” or “ex-vaxxers”. They can call themselves that if they wish, but they are 100% anti-vaxxers. I’ll define what I mean by “anti-vax”: in general, if a person believes that vaccines are more harmful than the diseases they prevent, they are anti-vax. This can be as stereotypical as claiming vaccines cause autism to as outrageous a claim as “everyone who has had a vaccine has been injured.” Some anti-vaxxers really hate being called anti-vaxxers, and will even pretend it’s a slur on par with the n-word. Yes, really.
BREAKING: Google running Orwellian project to secretly hoover up health records of millions of Americans across 21states – WSJ The Wall Street Journal is now breaking the news that Google is running a secret, Orwellian project called “Project Nightingale,” designed to covertly sweep up the health records of millions of Americans across 21 U.S. states. “Search giant is amassing health records from Ascension facilities in 21 states; patients not yet informed,” warns the WSJ. The WSJ goes on to explain: Google is teaming with one of the country’s largest health-care systems on a secret project to collect and crunch the detailed personal health information of millions of Americans across 21 states, according to people familiar with the matter and internal documents. The data involved in Project Nightingale includes lab results, doctor diagnoses and hospitalization records, among other categories, and amounts to a complete health history, complete with patient names and dates of birth.
BETTER TO EDUCATE, THAN VACCINATE Vaccines are continuously promoted as being safe, but many believe they are not safe for legitimate reasons. The following is a well-researched presentation that lists some of the valid reasons for the great concern about vaccine safety and the heated debate that has resulted.

TETANUS, part 1
VACCINEU.COM à Has a course module on Tetanus
1. What is tetanus?
Tetanus is a condition caused by a toxin released by the
bacterium Clostridium tetani. Widely distributed in the environment, Clostridium tetani is found in the intestinal flora of domestic animals, horses, chickens, and man.
What we refer to as tetanus are a collective list of symptoms that happened when spores germinate under anaerobic conditions within a cut or a deep wound.
The symptoms are caused by the tetanus toxin, called tetanospasmin, the second most potent toxin known to humans, surpassed only by botulism toxin. Once released tetanospasmin is transported slowly through the tissues or the bloodstream until it reaches a synapse nerve junction.
Note I said SLOWLY. On average, this transfer takes about 10 days, but it can be even longer – YOU HAVE TIME! There’s no reason to panic and rush off to the ER for a tetanus shot!
The illness is characterized by rigidity and spasms of skeletal muscles, specifically the muscles of the face and neck. Slight movement can cause a sudden and severe spasm, called trismus, causing a hard clamp of the masseter muscles (lockjaw.) The spasms are excruciatingly painful and if not controlled, can SOMETIMES lead to respiratory arrest and death.
Once the toxin has done damage to the nerve cell, it can take weeks or even months for the synapse to FULLY RECOVER. In one study, patients took from one to seven months to RECOVER, depending on the severity of
But wait…. Isn’t tetanus 100% fatal?

The death rate can range from 10 to 70% – and is highest in infants (neonatal tetanus) in Third World countries and the elderly.
In many African and Indian cultures, the umbilical stump is covered with clay, mud or even cow dung. Because tetanus spores often reside in dirt and animal feces, the spores can literally pass directly into the infant’s bloodstream through this unclean procedure. Infants can die from neonatal tetanus – and many of you have probably seen the ONE picture that seems to be available of an infant who has advanced tetanus.
It is because of these unsterile conditions in THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES, that we give our babies in the US and other First world nations, three tetanus shots to our babies – which also contain diphtheria and pertussis toxoid, formaldehyde and aluminum – by six months of age.
>February 2, 1980 – British Medical Journal – “Long-term recovery from tetanus: A Study of 50 survivors” Abstract.
In 1980, a study was published of 50 survivors from tetanus infection, 29 patients said they had regained normal health and 45 of the 50 had returned to full employment.
Additionally, 9 of the 50 said they were still improving and 12 considered that their health permanently impaired, mostly due psychological memories of the seriousness of the illness.
The tetanus vaccine was one of the earliest developed.
- 1914: the first tetanus toxoid was introduced – It was used during WWI
- 1924: A better, more completely inactivated tetanus toxoid was produced
- 1937: the first tetanus vaccination.
It was absorbed onto aluminum and given to military members during WWII.
The antibody level that is “generally accepted” to be protective is a titer of > 0.015 IU/mL. This value is an arbitrary level was set in 1937 when the toxoid was injected into ferrets . When they were exposed to tetanus spores the ferrets that had a titer level of > 0.015 IU/mL “seemed” to be immune. Since that the time, an antibody titer of >0.015 has been the accepted “standard” for being protected.
Do protective antibodies protect?

233 reported cases of tetanus – 141 had unknown tetanus status – reasonable that many had had at least one dose
24 had >4 doses of tetanus vaccines = 10.3%
Can you be naturally immune to tetanus? YES!
- February, 1983 – Journal of Infectious Diseases – “Naturally Acquired Antibodies to Tetanus Toxin in Humans and Animals from the Galapagos Islands.”
Full text: sci-hub.tw/10.1093/infdis/147.2.308
“57 people who were never vaccinated against tetanus were found to have antibodies. One individual has a titer level of >12.5 IU/ml…The most probable mechanism by which humans and animals acquire NATURAL ANTIBODY to tetanus toxin is by swallowing tetanus spores….
“However, it is important to point out that the detection of antibody to tetanus toxin in the blood does NOT imply total protection against clinical tetanus because clinical illness may occur in spite of the presence of circulating antibody titers of more than 0.5 IU/ml (protective is supposed to be >0.015 IU/ml)
What about tetanus 10-year boosters?
March 2016 – Clinical Infectious Diseases – “Durability of Vaccine-Induced Immunity Against Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxins: A Cross-Sectional Analysis (Hammerlund et al.) – FULL TEXT
“Protective levels of antibodies were observed in 99% of subjects under 60 years. Vaccine-induced antibody responses declined with estimated half -lives of 14 years for tetanus and 27 years for diphtheria….
If a more conservative antibody half- life is used [for the calculations], we find that 95% of the subjects [who have had 1 or 2 boosters] will remain sero-protected against tetanus for 64 years without further vaccination.
Although tetanus is [can be] highly lethal in unvaccinated patients, disease severity is sharply reduced in fully vaccinated individuals. Of 124 cases of tetanus, 14 deaths (16%) occurred in patients who had received <3 doses of vaccine or had unknown vaccination status, whereas all 110 patients (100%) who received ≥4 doses survived.
