What if measles is actually not a dreaded disease, but a normal milestone in the development of a healthy immune system for our children? What if the best thing we can do for our children is to be sure that they experience a natural case of the measles instead of fearfully trying to prevent it with a vaccine? What if the lifelong immunity that comes from childhood measles actually strengthens the immune system so that it can resist cancer? What if the natural immunity that a young girl receives from the measles is needed later in life, so that she can protect her babies by providing measles antibodies through her breast milk?

These are not trivial questions. They are fundamental to our health and to the health of future generations. Dr. Stephanie Seneff, PhD, provided information about these questions when she recently spoke with Health Impact News.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She earned her PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 1985. For over three decades, her research interests have been at the intersection of biology and computation. She has published over 170 refereed articles. In recent years, Dr. Seneff has focused her research interests back towards biology. She is concentrating mainly on the relationship between nutrition and health. Since 2011, she has written over a dozen papers (7 as first author) in various medical and health-related journals. Topics include modern day diseases (Alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiovascular diseases), database analysis of drug side effects such as vaccines, and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins such as glyphosate on human health. [1]

I spoke with Dr. Seneff on March 12, 2015. Dr. Seneff stated:

I’ve been going down a slope [with vaccines]. I vaccinated all my children. Of course, in those days, there were many fewer vaccines. I wasn’t all together comfortable with it, but I believed it was the law and I trusted the government.

Today, if I were a young mother I would definitely do things differently. I would find a way to avoid vaccines. This means that we have to start thinking about homeschooling our kids – this is huge! They are making sure that avoiding vaccinations is difficult. I would try everything I could to get out.

Dr. Seneff on the Measles Vaccine

I think there is a really big issue with the measles vaccine that is coming. When I was a kid, measles was nothing. Measles came into town and everyone said, “Be sure [your children] get the measles on this round, because you don’t know when you will have another chance,” and the kids all got it. It was just a rash on our torsos – I didn’t even get sick when I got it.

When children get natural measles, they develop permanent immunity. But if you get the measles vaccine, then the immunity wears off.

But now we see situations where we have young pregnant women and there is a problem. Newborn children are supposed to get antibodies from the mother through nursing that will protect the baby. It is true that newborns are more susceptible to damage from measles, but as long as babies get measles antibodies from breast milk, then they are protected [during the time of nursing]. However, if the mother never had measles and only had the measles vaccine, and the vaccine wore off, then she cannot give the needed antibodies to her baby when she nurses. This problem was created by the measles vaccine.

I think the measles vaccine has caused serious trouble for us.

Even if we were to say, “Let’s just forget about the measles vaccine and stop using it,” then we still have a serious problem. Now we have a generation of mothers who have to somehow get through the process of raising newborns [who are susceptible to the measles], because they cannot protect their babies [even when breast feeding]. This presents a dilemma. Do we keep on vaccinating these women? Or do we let them be exposed to the wild measles disease, which would give them lifelong immunity?

The problem is that measles is a much more serious disease for adults. We are supposed to get measles in childhood, but not too early in childhood. If we go through the natural process, then that is the best way to acquire immunity.

Flu Vaccine is Not Needed

Dr. Seneff shared her thoughts about the flu vaccine. She stated:

When people get colds all the time from viruses, this is an indicator that you have a problem. You are not healthy if this is happening. If you are eating well and getting plenty of sun, then you won’t get sick.

For example, I have never had the flu vaccine in my life, and I can’t remember the last time I had the flu. It has been at least twenty years ago. I don’t worry about the flu.

Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O., indicates that the Flu Vaccine has little to no measurable benefit. He stated:

The CDC states that the annual flu vaccine is the “best” way to avoid catching the seasonal flu, but what many fail to realize is that there’s virtually NO valid scientific evidence to support it, in either its effectiveness or its safety.

This is particularly true for key target groups for which the CDC says the flu shot is most important, like seniors, children and pregnant women! [2]

Hepatitis-B vaccine for Infants is “Insane”

I want to highlight the following short comment from Dr. Seneff, because it points to a vaccination practice that damages newborn babies every day. The standard practice in hospital-based birthing centers is to give a hepatitis-B vaccine within 24 hours of birth. This is often done without parental consent while the mother sleeps after she has given birth.

Dr. Seneff stated:

Certainly, the giving of hepatitis-B vaccine to infants at birth is insane. That vaccine has a pretty high dose of aluminum. That vaccine is hitting the newborn’s immune system before it is even working.

I want to extend Dr. Seneff’s comment by sharing a short piece of advice to couples who are planning to have children. If you don’t want your newborn child to receive the hepatitis-B vaccine at birth, then this will need to be arranged before birth. You might want to ask your obstetrician to write an order stating that hospital staff persons are not to give the hepatitis-B vaccine.

Even then, the giving of this vaccine is so routine, it might be given to your new baby without consulting your medical chart. The father of the child might wish to take proactive steps with hospital staff immediately after birth, by verbally communicating the couple’s wishes that the Hepatitis vaccine not be given. Ask that your request be written on the child’s new medical record.

For additional remarks from Dr. Seneff regarding how to use dietary changes to overcome the harmful effects of vaccines and glyphosate related injuries, please review the previous article:

The Bigger Picture of Health Freedom

After I interviewed Dr. Seneff, I spent some time reflecting on the current healthcare battle. On the surface, the disagreement seems to be between those who think vaccinations are a good idea, and those who think vaccines are dangerous. But the real rift is between those who want to control what is done to the bodies of other people, and those who believe that we have a fundamental right to decide what goes into our bodies.

If the pharmaceutical industry, and the chemical companies who are developing GMO seeds and pesticide resistant crops, and the trade associations of physicians who push vaccinations, and US Government regulators all have their way, then every American will be compelled by law to take multiple vaccines every year with few if any exemptions.

People born after 1980 may not have memories of feeling truly strong and healthy. Some of us who were born in the 1950s or earlier still remember sitting in elementary school classrooms filled with normal kids. We did not have 20% of our classmates with a special education diagnosis. [3] We did not have fulltime school nurses in each school dispensing medications to children. We did not have teacher’s aides. We did not have metal detectors and armed guards or police officers on duty during the school day. We did not have students attacking teachers with chairs or threatening their lives. We did not have school shootings. I know, because I was there.

The New Normal for Children


A new “normal” has been established in America and in other countries that are pushing vaccinations and the consumption of food that has been genetically modified and/or sprayed with glyphosate and other pesticides. We now have babies who have been so sickened by vaccines and toxicity that they won’t eat or can’t eat. They don’t grow or develop normally. They are so injured that they must be force-fed through tubes that have been surgically implanted into their stomachs.

Such things were absolutely unheard of 50 years ago, but now it is seen as just one of those unfortunate things that happen to children with developmental delays. We are asked to just accept the fact that it’s normal for some children to have very delayed development, and for some children to be unable to thrive.

Large numbers of children with developmental delays are not normal. They were once very rare, and now they are accepted as the “new normal.” Parents are reassuringly told to not worry about it — your child will probably just grow out of it. But will they, if they continue to receive vaccines and eat food containing glyphosate and other chemicals?

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) knows the truth about vaccine injured children. She stated:

With 95 percent of US kindergarteners fully vaccinated and one child in six learning disabled, one in 10 asthmatic and one in 50 living with autism, educated parents and health care professionals are asking legitimate questions about why so many highly vaccinated children are so sick. [4]

The New Normal for Children is Becoming a New Normal for Adults


Chronic illness is the new normal for adults. Our bodies will eventually fail and we will die. However, our death certificates will rarely identify the cause of death as “natural causes” or “old age” as they sometimes did many years ago. In today’s world, the physician who signs the death certificate will list the person’s most outstanding chronic illness as the cause of death — and everyone seems to have one or more of those kinds of illnesses right now – such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, etc.

I can’t imagine a death certificate in America listing the true cause of death. Would a doctor ever sign a death certificate that stated the cause of death as being “vaccine toxicity” or “glyphosate poisoning,” or “malnutrition and complications from the standard American Diet?”

I don’t think so! But these are the actual underlying causes of illness and death for most people in America today. This pattern will continue to escalate as long as we keep disregarding the quality of food that we put in our mouths, and disregard the toxicity of substances such as vaccines that we inject into our bodies.

Illness is not a Mystery

For most people, when they are told about the harm that comes from vaccine use and glyphosate use, they act as if we are talking about a deeply hidden mystery. They can’t imagine how a few little injections or a tiny amount of pesticide in our food or water can cause such great harm. It is understandable at a certain level that people can’t quite believe that so much harm can result from such a little bit of poison when the spin-doctors have been feeding us a constant stream of false and misleading information about vaccines and GMO food for decades.

The truth is that vaccinations – not just some of them – not just those that contain mercury – but all of them are eroding our health. It only takes a little poison to produce harm and death – after all — that is what poisons are designed to do. Glyphosate and genetically modified foods have a synergetic effect when they are combined. They intensify one another. Vaccines and glyphosate are already threatening our ability to reproduce and our ability to survive to a “healthy” old age.

With the levels of autism continuing to rise, and the ever increasing numbers of people with chronic illnesses and disabling conditions continuing to rise, it is no wonder that calls for medically assisted suicide programs and calls for “end of life counseling” are growing in intensity.

Are You Ready to Accept “End of Life Termination”?

It will not be long before the current health-destruction system brings America to the point of tolerating the extermination of “defective children” who are not able to grow and thrive, and the extermination of “worn out” seniors who have been determined by someone to be too costly to warehouse in nursing homes. I pray to God that Americans will wake up and our society will recognize the path of death and destruction that lies ahead if we do not turn away from the plan to keep on expanding the vaccination schedule and keep on increasing the production of genetically modified food.

Is Mandatory Poor Health the New Requirement for All Americans?

What if it is true that childhood exposure to the wild measles virus is not a threat to health, but a required step in the development of a strong immune system? What if it is true that the process of developing an immune system that is strong enough to resist cancer and other diseases requires that we develop natural immunity to contagious childhood illnesses such as measles? What if it is true that genetically modified food and Roundup chemicals are actually creating conditions in the human digestive system where disease pathogens can flourish and cause systemic illness? What if it is true that mothers need childhood measles exposure to provide their infant children with measles immunity while the babies nurse? What if it is really true that the greatest cause of modern illness is chemical agriculture and pharmaceutical products such as vaccines, and not genetics?

What if all these statements are true – as I believe they are, then what are we to do? I believe we must continue to claim our right to control what is done to our bodies and to the bodies of our children. The right to healthcare begins with healthcare freedom, and not with health insurance!

We are on the precipice of a new era of mandated healthcare control. Let us not accept the call for mandatory poor health and chronic illness that will accompany mandatory vaccinations. Let us not yield control over our bodies to the interests of corporations and their bottom line profit margin. Let us protect the rights of young disabled children and frail elders by giving them the right to live. Let us not allow them to be put to sleep in the same way that we put to sleep our ill dogs and cats.

We should not forget the fact that Adolph Hitler began his crimes against humanity by killing handicapped children, adults who were very elderly, and members of the clergy who objected to his extermination plans.

The erosion of health freedom in America is already well under way. Mandatory vaccination is just the next step. The extermination of people with costly illnesses, whether very young or very old, may soon be coming to your neighborhood if America does not change its current direction. The costly and the least productive will be the first to be sacrificed for “the greater good of society”.
