Dr. Suzanne Humphries: The MMR Vaccine Is Causing Measles Outbreaks

Measles outbreaks are caused by vaccinated children passing the virus on to unvaccinated children, says Dr. Suzanne Humphries.

Measles outbreaks are increasingly caused by vaccinated children passing the vaccine-strain of the virus on to unvaccinated children, according to Dr. Suzanne Humphries who cites international studies that prove measles outbreaks were caused by vaccine-strain measles, not wild-strain.

Vaccine Impact reports: Dr. Suzanne Humphries is a practicing nephrologist (kidney physician). In this lecture (video below), she addresses a study done in Croatia [1] where a child who was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine was tested positive for the measles vaccine strain Schwarz eight days after vaccination.

This was a significant finding, because the child’s symptoms were thought to be similar to rubella, and without testing, the sickness would have been possibly mis-diagnosed as rubella, or the wild-type strain of measles the vaccine is designed to protect against.

This concept of “shedding,” where the child comes down with the disease from the virus in the vaccine itself, surprised the researchers:

“Virus excretion in vaccinees has been reported before, but to our knowledge, this is documented for the first time for the Schwarz vaccine strain“. [1]

Since 2010, this phenomena of vaccine shedding with measles in the MMR vaccine has been observed in at least two other studies:

Differentiating the wild from the attenuated during a measles outbreak. Paediatrcis and Child Health, 2012:

In the midst of a local measles outbreak, a recently immunized child was investigated for a new-onset measles-type rash. Nucleic acid testing identified that a vaccine-type measles virus was being shed in the urine. Clinically differentiating measles from a nonmeasles rash is challenging, but can be supported by a thorough medical history evaluation. Rashes are expected to occur after immunization; nucleic acid testing can be used when it is difficult to differentiate between wild and attenuated strains.” [2]

Case of vaccine-associated measles five weeks post-immunisation, British Columbia, Canada, Eurosurveillance, 2013:

We describe a case of vaccine-associated measles in a two-year-old patient from British Columbia, Canada, in October 2013, who received her first dose of measles-containing vaccine 37 days prior to onset of prodromal symptoms. Identification of this delayed vaccine-associated case occurred in the context of an outbreak investigation of a measles cluster.” [3]

Are health officials testing cases of measles in the current outbreak in the United States, to determine if the measles strain is the wild strain of the vaccine strain?

Not likely, and it is not likely that the mainstream media “TV doctors” will even discuss this as they falsely vilify parents who choose not to administer the MMR vaccine to their children as the cause of these outbreaks.

Some of these cases are confirmed to be among those who have received the MMR vaccine, and for those who have not been vaccinated, is it possible they were infected from those recently vaccinated when the vaccine was still “shedding,” and that the vaccine-strain of measles was passed on from the vaccinated child to the unvaccinated child?

    Vaccines are killing children, disabling them, making them not as healthy, their immune system damaged.
    Anyone, who manufactures a vaccine, forces a vaccine, gives a vaccine to a child which dies, should be hanged by the neck until dead. What then is the difference between taking a club and bashing a child in the head, and forcing upon, giving a vaccine which has the potential, and does in many cases cause death.

    Why are these murderers not executed?

  • Tall T

    How many measel deaths? It wasn’t in your article. Here’s a hint it starts with zero.

  • Brian

    How cute! An anti-vaccine scam artist, whose living and reputation relies on vilifying vaccination, is lying again.

    • Tammy Ritchie

      Are you up to date on your vaccine boosters? Here’s the schedule…
      Or you can go balls out and take 10,000 vaccines all at once. It’s okay, Dr. Paul Offit says that babies can handle that much. I doubt that a big fella like yourself would have any trouble taking that much!

      • Brian

        Do you have a phobia of needles or something?

        An annual flu shot and potential boosters every ten years certainly doesn’t bother me. I’ve actually had more than the recommended schedule, as I used to live in a part of the world where many of these disease are still endemic.

        • Ima Skeptic

          Brian, you are no better than the physicians who outright refuse to read manufacturer’s vaccine package inserts. Look at this list of possible vaccine reactions listed on vaccine package inserts. This was combined from many vaccine inserts:

          • Brian

            I have all of the vaccine inserts. They’re also available online. Which of these are actual vaccine reactions?

            If you don’t know the meaning of “adverse event”, then you aren’t qualified to talk about what the inserts do or do not say.

          • Ima Skeptic

            Brian, a “vaccine reaction” is any injury or condition that occurs as a result of a vaccination that has been given to protect against disease. An “adverse event” is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product. It might be causal and it might not be. It’s correlation. The same kind of correlation vaccine marketers use as proof that vaccines saved humanity.

            Vaccines did not save us. The problem is when you go looking for the science that proves vaccines saved humanity, they don’t have anything but the “correlation” that they demonize the so-called “anti-vaxxers” for using. It’s woo-woo science they are using. Pseudoscience. They don’t use valid control groups (i.e. the totally unvaccinated) or true placebos. Vaccination science is a bastardization of science. These diseases were already in a steep decline before vaccines were created for them. All vaccine marketers have is “correlation”. No science with valid control groups or true placebos proving anything.

            Meanwhile, Dr. Paul Offit is backsliding a bit. Here he is teaching his disciples the art of lying to the whole world. Dr. Paul Offit says,
            “…you can’t really say MMR doesn’t cause autism.”

            “Dr. Paul Offit Accidentally Speaks The Truth About MMR and Autism”.


          • Brian

            Nothing but correlation?

            Surely you joking!

            There have been thousands of controlled studies! The models of chemistry and biology have been validated and revalidated- for decades.

            When anti-vaxxers are criticized for relying on correlations, it’s because that once confounders are accounted for, the associations evaporate, proving that the correlation isn’t causal.

          • Ima Skeptic

            Brian, you are full of BS. Who are you working for?? The published study by Dr Mawson on vaccinated versus unvaccinated children is here.
            “In conclusion, vaccinated homeschool children were found to have a higher rate of allergies and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) than unvaccinated homeschool children.”

          • Brian

            Let’s review the hierarchy of evidence, from strongest to weakest:

            Meta-analyses > RCTs > cohort studies > case control studies > Cross-sectional studies > Animal Trials > Case reports/opinion papers

            Guess where Mawson’s paper exists? (If we neglect the fact that his paper was retracted)

            Let me know when you find a meta-analysis of over one million people.

          • Ima Skeptic

            Brian, this stuff isn’t rocket science so don’t try to make it out to be. Big pharma blaming autism on genetics is worse than blaming a rape victim for the crime. And Dr. Paul Offit gives the impression that he doesn’t even know what is in a vaccine. Autism is triggered by environmental factors. That is known. And mercury, aluminum, and glyphosate have all three been linked to autism. That is three environmental factors linked to autism and all three are found in vaccines. Vaccines are part of our environment. What on earth is so hard for them to figure out?!?!?!?!?!?

          • Brian

            The unvaccinated develop autism at the same rate as the vaccinated, so it’s obvious that vaccines don’t cause it.

            You’re right, it isn’t rocket science.

          • Ima Skeptic

            Brian, I just showed you the study that proves otherwise. What’s the matter with your brain??

          • Brian

            “Brian, I just showed you the study that proves otherwise”

            Really?! *eyeroll* Which study was that? Where did it fall on the hierarchy of evidence?

            After all, there are plenty of case-control studies, cohort studies, and meta-analyses that all show that the unvaccinated develop autism at the same rate as the vaccinated.

            They have the added benefit of being published in quality, peer-reviewed journals, independent replication all over the world, not being funded by activist groups, and not being retracted. (Mawson fails at all these points)

          • Ima Skeptic

            Brian, there is also cancer DNA in vaccines. Be sure you get all of them.

          • Steven Richardson

            I think there are a few key points not being addressed here. It’s called “conflicts of interest” and “scientific malfeasance”. Also, it’s actually more scientific to have a “healthy skepticism” rather than a “healthy user bias”. If the integrity of the study and the procedures isn’t of utmost importance to you than you sorta lose credibility. And how’s this for a meta-analysis without the fraud: “It shouldn’t be a surprise that the final piece of this puzzle came from China. I’ve listened closely to the stories of American scientists wanting to study autism and complaining that any studies that are even remotely controversial are nearly impossible to fund or get approved. As you will see, Chinese scientists do not appear to have that same constraint. In a way, many American, Canadian, and French scientists have pioneered a pretty clear picture of how autism is caused, and the Chinese helped tie it all together. That’s at least my interpretation, please make your own judgment.”


          • Steven Richardson

            The Mawson study is back online. Reports of a retraction unfounded. http://info.cmsri.org/…/has-snopes-been-snoped-will-retract… The first-ever study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American children (and a subset study) published two weeks ago in the peer-reviewed Journal of Translational Science have reappeared online after briefly disappearing while under fire from a small band of Skeptics and the staff at Retraction Watch, an organization that reports Science retraction news. Snopes, the fact-checking website, is still misreporting that the study has been retracted, even while it sits, published, in the science journal’s pages.

            Vaccination was strongly associated with both otitis media and pneumonia, which are among the most common complications of measles infection [56,57]. The odds of otitis media were almost four-fold higher among the vaccinated (OR 3.8, 95% CI: 2.1, 6.6) and the odds of myringotomy with tube placement were eight-fold higher than those of unvaccinated children (OR 8.0, 95% CI: 1.0, 66.1). Acute otitis media (AOM) is a very frequent childhood infection, accounting for up to 30 million physician visits each year in the U.S., and the most common reason for prescribing antibiotics for children [58,59]. The incidence of AOM peaks at ages 3 to 18 months and 80% of children have experienced at least one episode by 3 years of age. Rates of AOM have increased in recent decades [60]. Worldwide, the incidence of AOM is 10.9%, with 709 million cases each year, 51% occurring in children under 5 years of age [61]. Pediatric AOM is a significant concern in terms of healthcare utilization in the U.S., accounting for $2.88 billion in annual health care costs [62]. source: http://www.oatext.com/Pilot-comparative-study-on-the

            Do the words misattributed success mean anything? More risk vs reward and flawed CDC research claiming credit via false conclusions (this is not science – if the adverse reactions weren’t so severe and permanent it would be comical)….for those parents that care to make an informed decision.

            University of Pennsylvania’s Dr. Brian Strom, who has served on Institute of Medicine panels advising the government on vaccine safety says the prevailing medical opinion is that vaccines ARE scientifically linked to encephalopathy (brain damage).

          • Steven Richardson

            The more you know. There are hundreds of peer reviewed published and not published (for not so obvious reasons) that are waving a big red flag. Bias much? http://www.cdc.news/2017-02-16-cdc-is-a-vaccine-company-own… “While the media has busily been defending the vaccine industry, labeling all who question it as “anti-science” and a risk to public health, they have managed to avoid broadcasting a glaring conflict of interest that should have made headlines worldwide: The CDC’s own cozy relationship with and direct involvement in the vaccine industry.”

            “In 1992, the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published an admission that the live-virus vaccine had become the dominant cause of polio in the United States [36]. In fact, according to CDC figures, every case of polio in the U.S. since 1979 was caused by the oral polio vaccine [36].
            “Authorities claim the vaccine was responsible for about eight cases of polio every year [46]. However, an independent study that analyzed the government’s own vaccine database during a recent period of less than five years uncovered 13,641 reports of adverse events following use of the oral polio vaccine.
            “These reports included 6,364 emergency room visits and 540 deaths (Figure 3) [47,48].

            Hi there brand spankin’ new disqus account!

            It’s rather hilarious that you try to defend the awful paper by pointing to *gasp* the anti-vaccine group that funded the study!

            And did you forget that the other low-quality journal “Frontiers” had also retracted the same paper?

          • Ima Skeptic

            I believe Big Pharma and the CDC are digging their own graves with all their lies. How to cripple a country is done quicker with injury than by outright killing them. For every one injured or crippled person, it takes two to care for them… for the rest of their life if it’s autism. When autism rates reach one out of three children, there will be a total loss of productivity in our country. I don’t know about you but it sounds like treason to me!!

    • Ima Skeptic

      Brian, anyone that would just kick to the curb Dr. Suzanne Humphries advice on vaccines is nothing but a total dumbass!!!

          Brian, anyone who sells vaccines is nothing but a con artist. Here’s a nice quote for you and I totally agree with it. The nice thing about having a brain is that you don’t let con artists sell you dangerous concoctions to inject into your children.
          “We know so little about vaccines and their relationship to epidemics. However, there are certain principles that seem to emerge from a close analysis of the vaccine timeline, by examining this history, other than the fact that vaccines don’t work. The best conclusion from the historical data, is that to date, vaccines are the most reliable cause of epidemics.”

            What are all these direct-to-consumer vaccine marketers on the internet going to say if it comes out most all the measles cases that occur in our country of the USA are coming from the vaccines themselves? The Vaccine Injury Table actually says you can get the measles from the measles vaccine. Is this outbreak from the wild measles or from the vaccine strain of the measles? Do they ever even check to find out? See page 2.
            V. Vaccines containing measles virus (e.g., MMR, MM, MMRV)
            B. Vaccine-Strain Measles Viral Disease in an immunodeficient recipient

            There is no wild measles in the USA to my knowledge. The only measles this country has is coming from a vaccine unless it is brought in from outside the country and the news media never claimed these latest measles cases originated from outside the country.
            MY Conclusion: It’s a vaccine strain of the measles until proven otherwise with lab work. It looks to me like they are intentionally spreading the measles with vaccines.

          • Brian

            Thanks for proving my point!

            In every measles outbreak, the measles strain is tested. There are 20 known genotypes:

            A, B2, B3, C1, C2, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9, D10, D11, G2, G3, H1, H2

            Guess which strain has NEVER caused an outbreak?
            Guess which is the vaccine strain?

          • Ima Skeptic

            There is no wild measles in the USA…. unless it came from another country. So tell me, what country did the latest measles outbreak originate from???

          • Brian

            “There is no wild measles in the USA to my knowledge. The only measles this country has is coming from a vaccine unless it is brought in from outside the country and the news media never claimed these latest measles cases originated from outside the country.”

            So there are two options:
            1. virus came from another country
            2. virus is from the vaccine

            Considering (2) never happens in any outbreak ever, the answer is (1)

            If anti-vaxxers have their way, then the disease will return to being endemic in the USA once again!
