We have four children, none of whom have been vaccinated. Some five weeks ago, they all suffered cold and cough symptoms, which, in the case of two, developed into full blown whooping cough a month later. This was diagnosed and treated by our homoeopath. Our two year old is still very unwell and suffering acute coughing spasms every hour throughout the night. I took her to our GP, prepared to face a reprimand for "neglecting" to vaccinate. However, the doctor diagnosed asthma and prescribed Ventolin. I was so unconvinced by this diagnosis that I consulted another GP within the practice. To my amazement he insisted that whooping cough no longer exists (due to mass vaccination) and confirmed the diagnosis of asthma. I then pressed for a sputum test to prove or disprove the existence of whooping cough. The doctor admitted he had never tested for whooping cough before and would seek further information.
I later received a patronizing phone call following his discussion with our local consultant microbiologist. They do not test for whooping cough because it does not exist.I then asked, should the condition clear up in a few weeks, presumably asthma would have been an unlikely diagnosis? To which he replied, "We now have a new condition called viral asthma which is similar to whooping cough." He said they see many children with this condition. He added, "Since they stopped testing for whooping cough there have been no recorded cases in our area."
Since they no longer test for whooping cough, it will seem as though vaccination has caused its decline. E G, Leigh-on-Sea.....
This wonderful case of medical double think is similar to what happened after the polio vaccine was launched in the Fifties. Cases of polio dramatically declined, at the same time that cases of a new disease called "paralytic meningitis" mysteriously shot up.
