Whooping Cough Morphing into Superbug Due to Vaccine Use in Australia

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has known for years that vaccine use and over-reliance on antibiotics cause unstoppable super bugs, and now evidence of this phenomenon is happening in Australia. The bacterium that causes whooping cough, Bordetella petrussis, is morphing into a superbug most likely caused by vaccine use, and is turning into a strain that can no longer be controlled with vaccines.

The big change that researchers noticed in the strains of Bordetella pertussis is that they are no longer producing a protein called pertactin. An astonishing 80% of all whopping cough cases studied by researchers in 2012 were caused by pertactin-free strains. So why are new vaccinated cases of whooping cough running rampant?  It turns out that pertactin is one of the three proteins, made from purified extracts of Bordetella pertussis bacteria, currently used in the vaccine in Australia. The other two are pertussis toxin and filamentous haemagglutinin.

The study is published in the scientific journal Emerging Infectious Diseases

“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, Associate Professor Ruiting Lan, of the UNSW School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences.

“This could mean that these pertactin-free strains have gained a selective advantage over bacterial strains with the pertactin protein.”

Groundbreaking Study: 42% of Drug Reactions are Vaccine-Related

This isn’t the first time that vaccines were found to be the cause of superbug-creation. More potent viruses and bacterium are developing, threatening the health of future generations. We are creating a war-like atmosphere for the immune systems of young children coming into the world right now. While researchers keep asserting that better vaccines are the answer, the more likely answer is to stop relying on vaccines, and to allow the natural immunity of a human being to develop with better diet and lifestyle choices.

Scientists knew about the morphing bacteria back in 2010. As reported by PennState:

“An acellular whooping cough vaccine actually enhances the colonization of Bordetella parapertussis in mice; pointing towards a rise in B. parapertussis incidence resulting from acellular vaccination, which may have contributed to the observed increase in whooping cough over the last decade.”

Microbiologists from the University of NSW found variants of the pertussis bacteria with a particular genetic signature had increased to 86% of all samples taken from infected people after a continuing disease epidemic began in Australia in 2008, yet people were still encouraged to vaccinate. Now, many are questioning the national vaccine program in Australia and other countries.

Similar occurrences have happened with polio vaccines. Just one vaccine called Prevnar, which has curbed pneumonia, meningitis, and deadly bloodstream infections, is now causing superbugs as well. One strain of strep bacteria called 19A is spreading due to super resistance to the vaccine. The vaccine has been used in dozens of countries and made its makers more than $1.5 billion.

One thing is for certain; the public is not given accurate information about the effectiveness or lack thereof concerning vaccines. We are simply encouraged to get vaccinated without question. The CDC even publishes a ‘tool-kit’ on how to promote the seasonal flu vaccine, though influenza is rarely treated with a vaccine at all since ‘the flu’ is actually numerous strains of a virus that is changing all the time.

Do we really want to infect our toddlers and elderly with bacterium and viruses that their small or aging bodies can’t fight?
