Vaccination Not All Black and White | Richard Moskowitz, MD

So, let’s think about the measles. That’s a very good example because it’s a strong infectious disease, and it has a high fever, and then you get over it in a week… and I’m looking at that process, what’s involved in that. That’s a concerted outpouring of the entire immune system, the result of which is that the measles virus is expelled from the blood… all of these mechanisms are activated. And as a result of that, what I would call natural immunity, which is life-long, it’s absolute. It’s qualitative immunity, that is to say, first of all it’s specific… I will never again get the measles, no matter how many times I’m re-exposed to it. But what we often don’t think about is there’s an important non-specific immunity, namely I have primed the immune system to respond in this acute, vigorous manner, and so it’s ready to go for whatever is going to come down the pike in the future.

    Please pass this study on to Dr. Moskowitz – it’s germane to his hypothesis of vaccinations leading to autoimmune disease and few know of this study.

    PLEASE PASS THIS KOBE JAPAN ANIMAL STUDY ON TO DR. MOSKOWITZ. It is germane to what he mentioned in the interview as a consequence of artificially stimulated antibodies –

    Thank-you, Dr Moskowitz! As a now retired RN, I have believed there were reasons for the so called “childhood diseases”, related to priming and exercising our developing immune systems, for decades, and that even attenuated vaccines sidetracked that purpose, but most being now dead viruses, a child’s immune system has no idea how to respond to a real, live “healthy” virus or bacterium when so confronted. I know measles certainly kicked my own immune system into “high gear”!
