Is Aerial Spraying Tied to Whooping Cough Outbreak?

September 13, 2012

13 Sep – Two years ago, Jim West (HARPUB) predicted the link between whooping cough (pertussis) outbreaks and pesticide spraying; noting that, in California, counties that have no quarantine or spray programs report no incidents of pertussis, while counties that have such programs do (see chart).

Last month, Dallas-Fort Worth officials began spraying programs to combat an alleged West Nile outbreak and, as West predicted, Pertussis cases were reported.

Predictably, Dr. Jeffrey S. Kahn blames parents for failing to vaccinate their children:

“Pertussis is a vaccine-preventable disease and yet, in this country, we’re still seeing cases of pertussis and we’re still seeing children die from pertussis. And that’s quite a sad commentary on public health.”

Paradoxically, infectious diseases like Pertussis became statistically insignificant in the US by 1955

… years before the CDC and doctors like Kahn began to push vaccines to prevent them:

In reality, however, children appear more likely to die from preventable medical errors, complications, drugs and vaccines than diseases like pertussis.

Since 2009, the pharmaceutical industry has paid $10 billion to settle thousands of criminal and civil complaints related to the illegal marketing of drugs that kill or injure 2-4 million Americans, ANNUALLY – paying millions of dollars in kickbacks, bribes and/or speaking fees to clinicians like Dr. Kahn who unnecessarily push deadly drugs and vaccines to healthy populations.  By any standard, such an industry can be characterized as a “criminal enterprise.”

So if infectious diseases like pertusses became  statistically irrelevant by 1955; and children are more likely to die from unnecessary drugs and vaccines, why does Dr. Kahn push vaccines?

The answer lies in Dr. Kahn’s listed professional affilations, all of which are funded directly or indirectly by drug and vaccine manufacturers.

For example, Dr. Kahn is regular speaker for the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), which is predominantly funded by the pharmaceutical industry and pharmaceutically-funded organizations like HIVMA and the Center for Global Health Policy, which use the pretext of philanthropy to pay doctors like Kahn to promote the largely unnecessary sale and distribution of drugs and vaccines.

This leads us to ask this question: Why would any American trust the advice of doctors whose messages are funded by a criminal enterprise?
