[2012 June] Pertussis : MOH changes the diagnosis criteria - 31 May, 2012 by Hilary Butler

"Not long after this time, all croup, regardless of its nature, was included as a diphtheria death in New Zealand statistics, up until the vaccine was introduced. Nowadays, croup is considered to be caused by viruses belonging to the parainfluenza group."--Hilary Butler

For example whooping cough gets called “croup” when it occurs in vaccinated children, and diphtheria gets called such names as “epiglotitis”, or, as in this case, described in “Raising a Vaccine Free Child”, by Wendy Lydall (2005, pg 68),
    ‘Her aunt had nursed diphtheria cases in Britain in the 1950s, and she said that her niece had the typical symptoms of diphtheria. The girl was flown by helicopter to a bigger hospital in Auckland, where they took a swab from her throat and confirmed diphtheria. When they learned that the girl was fully immunised, one of the doctors said to the mother, "Then it can’t be diphtheria." They changed the diagnosis to bacterial tracheitis.’ ----[Letter BMJ May 2005 Mumps]

My daughter, who has never been vaccinated, had a milder case and recovered sooner than either of the other girls. Both other girls were on antibiotics (several different types), which did not help at all. That tells me several things:  1) The vaccine does not protect your child. 2) Your child’s natural immunity is better able to fight off the disease without antibiotics.  3) The milder, shorter version of whooping cough, which my daughter had, was preferable to the longer, harsher cases the other girls had.  Had I taken my child to the doctor (which I did not), she most likely would have been diagnosed as having "whooping cough" because she was not vaccinated. The other girls were officially diagnosed as having "croup", since they had been vaccinated. Just another way to cover up actual statistics, and fool the average person into believing that vaccines are safe. [2001 Letter] Whooping Cough Cover-up
