The results of a recent study published in the journal Immunity calls into question the vaccination theory. The study found that the body’s immune system, comprised of both innate and adaptive components, work together to ward off disease without the need for antibody-producing vaccines.
The theory behind vaccines is that they mimic an infection by triggering B cells, one of the two major types of white blood cells in the immune system, to produce antibodies as part of the “adaptive” immune system. It is widely believed that these vaccine-induced antibodies, which are part of the more specific “adaptive” immune system, teach the immune system how to directly respond to an infection, such as measles, mumps, rubella, etc. before the body becomes exposed to it.
This new research highlights the fact that “innate” (inborn) immunity plays a significant role in fighting infections, and is perhaps more important than “adaptive” immunity at preventing or fighting infections. In tests, adaptive immune system antibodies were shown to be unable to fight infection by themselves, which calls into the question the theory that vaccines and vaccination programs serve any legitimate function in preventing disease.
These findings are supported by recent reports of outbreaks of whooping cough (pertussis), measles and mumps in children already vaccinated for these diseases. Among whooping cough cases, 81 percent were vaccinated for the disease.
