Rubella vaccine linked to Epstein-Barr VirusDr Mendelsohn MD (1987)
Many people now know about the dangers of DPT shots in babies. and they are rejecting those particular shots. Yet, they still accept other vaccines for their children. So for those trusting souls, here is the latest evidence on the dangers of the German measles vaccine.
A study of 200 patients with Epstein-Barr Virus (often called Yuppie disease) is scheduled for publication this spring in the journal Medical Hypothesis. In an advance report in the San Diego Tribune (September 30. 1987). the studys researchers have linked EBV syndrome to exposure to the weakened. but live, rubella virus found in the vaccine. Given to young children, the vaccine can linger in their systems for years and can be passed to adults through casual contact.
Biomedical researcher Allen D. Allen of Algorithms. Inc. of Northridge. California, blames EBV syndrome on Merck Sharp and Dohmes Biavax and Meruvax vaccines which were introduced in the late 1970s. Allen says. I can say all this attention to the (Epstein-Barr) syndrome. the public awareness. started in the early 1980s. right after these vaccines came out. Young adults. the ones most likely to be in contact with young children, are the primary targets. Its too much of a coincidence to ignore."
In a similar study. Dr. Hugh Fudenberg http://members.aol.com/nitrf, professor of immunology at the Medical University in Charleston. South Carolina found the same linkage in 24 patients.
