A research paper entitled “Inhibitory effect of breast milk on infectivity of live oral rotavirus vaccines” by the National Centers for Immunization and Respiratory Disease, Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) recommends that women stop breastfeeding their children as it decreases vaccine efficacy – the effectiveness of Big Pharma’s vaccines.
Findings from the 2010 study indicated that Indian women had the highest number of naturally occurring antibodies (IgA) in their breastmilk, which had a neutralising effect on the human viruses contained in the vaccine – which is the exact reason breastmilk is so valuable – thereby reducing vaccine efficacy.
FINDINGS: Breast milk from Indian women had the highest IgA and neutralizing titers against all 3 vaccine strains, while lower but comparable median IgA and neutralizing titers were detected in breast milk from Korean and Vietnamese women, and the lowest titers were seen in American women. Neutralizing activity was greatest against the 2 vaccine strains of human origin, RV1 and 116E. This neutralizing activity in one half of the breast milk specimens from Indian women could reduce the effective titer of RV1 by ∼2 logs, of 116E by 1.5 logs, and RV5 G1 strain by ∼1 log more than that of breast milk from American women.
INTERPRETATION: The lower immunogenicity and efficacy of rotavirus vaccines in poor developing countries could be explained, in part, by higher titers of IgA and neutralizing activity in breast milk consumed by their infants at the time of immunization that could effectively reduce the potency of the vaccine. Strategies to overcome this negative effect, such as delaying breast-feeding at the time of immunization, should be evaluated. [emphasis added]1
The World Health Organisation states:
Breastfeeding is the normal way of providing young infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. Virtually all mothers can breastfeed, provided they have accurate information, and the support of their family, the health care system and society at large.
Colostrum, the yellowish, sticky breast milk produced at the end of pregnancy, is recommended by WHO as the perfect food for the newborn, and feeding should be initiated within the first hour after birth.
Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.”
Not only is breastfeeding children the natural thing to do, it also provides these short and long term benefits for both mother and baby:
- Provides perfectly balanced nutrition for the early years of life
- Provides antibodies for the infant which assists with herd immunity for the community
- Boosts immmunity
- Decreases the risk of SIDS
- Decreases the mothers risk of Type 2 diabetes
- Decreases the risk of the child developing seizures
- Babies who are exclusively breastfed have less acute respiratory infections, less ear infections, less thrush, fewer episodes of digestive infections, and fewer hospitalisations.
- Breastfed babies make stronger, healthier adolescents
- Reduces risk of metabolic syndrome for the mother
- Reduces rheumatoid arthritis risk for the mother
- Cuts breast cancer rates in High Risk Women by 59%
- Protects the heart of the mother
It’s sobering to think that such a free and valuable resource, produced so abundantly by a mother, and individualised specifically for the infant at each moment in time is not seen for the liquid gold that it is. Here, CDC scientists are not enamoured by the amazing abilities of breast milk to neutralise strains of Rotavirus, and instead recommend halting breastfeeding throughout the vaccination process so their vaccines work more effectively! That seems a little topsy turvy to me.
Breastmilk alternatives such as infant formula contain synthetic nutrients, are full of sugar, GMO products, allergens, cow’s milk products, have been shown to contain toxins melamine and BPA, and when combined with fluoridated tap water, and a microwaved plastic bottle, do not make for a great choice for any baby. On a more positive note, the study illustrates just how effective mother’s milk is at killing viruses.
Here is another viewpoint from Natural News…
CDC researchers say mothers should stop breastfeeding to boost ‘efficacy’ of vaccines
(NaturalNews) Remember when it was considered crazy talk to suggest that mainstream medicine viewed humanity as being born lacking in pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines, as if these synthetic inputs are necessary miracle nutrients for proper human development? Well, researchers from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently showed that they adhere to this lunatic philosophy, having released a study that recommends women withhold breastfeeding their children in order to boost the “effectiveness” of the rotavirus vaccine.
Ten researchers from the CDC’s National Centers for Immunization and Respiratory Disease (NCIRD) released the ridiculous paper, entitled Inhibitory effect of breast milk on infectivity of live oral rotavirus vaccines, which claims the immune-boosting effects of breastmilk are a detriment to the efficacy of vaccines. The paper goes on to say that, rather than remove vaccines so that breastmilk can do its job, women should instead remove the breastmilk to allow vaccines to do their job.
The CDC researchers began their investigation by searching for answers as to why children from underdeveloped countries typically do not respond as well to the live oral rotavirus vaccine as children in developed countries typically do. They came to the conclusion that breastmilk, which is packed with immune-building immunoglobulin A (IgA), lactoferrin, lysozyme, and various other important immune factors, inhibits the vaccine from working.
Breastmilk, of course, is a young child’s lifeline. It naturally builds immunity during childhood development, and provides perfect and balanced nutrition necessary for human growth. Withholding breastmilk in order to accommodate the rotavirus vaccine, as the CDC researchers suggest, is an absolutely insane notion that will deprive children of vital nutrition and proper immune development.
But it is ludicrous notions like these that are birthed from philosophies that view drugs and vaccines as being equal, or even superior, to natural food. Oral rotavirus vaccines contain live viruses, they have questionable efficacy to begin with, and they are even known to cause rotavirus. They are also linked to causing a variety of negative side effects, including diarrhea, which is a condition the vaccine is supposed to prevent!
This is how vaccine dogma works, though. The religion of vaccines does not have to offer any solid proof that a vaccine works, or that it is even safe. A vaccine can even cause the very thing it is touted as preventing, and vaccine apologists will say that it works and that it is necessary. And now in this case, these same psychopaths are suggesting that young babies be starved of real nutrition in order to improve the effectiveness of a vaccine.

Isn’t breastfeeding more important than vaccine efficacy?
One doesn’t need to be a scientist to know what is best for one’s children – despite what the government, mainstream media and medical doctors are telling us. Clearly breastmilk is the best choice for our kids, and we already know it’s ability to protect our infants. Period. Why was a study even conducted on this issue? How much money and time was spent to determine this outcome? Money that could be spent educating mothers about the best options for themselves and their babies. The World Health Organisation (WHO) reports that providing breastfeeding education and support to new mothers could prevent more than one million child deaths every year.
Although the WHO recommends that infants start breastfeeding within one hour of birth and consume nothing but breast milk — not even water — for the first six months of life, less than 40 percent of mothers worldwide meet this goal. Insufficient breastfeeding is a problem in both rich and poor countries.. Why not spend this money educating mothers on the importance of giving their children the best start in life?
If mothers were educated just how important breastmilk was to their children and the immense benefits it would bring for themselves and their babies, perhaps more women would continue breastfeeding for longer – and allow the “inhibitory effect of breastmilk” to do its job! In turn, we would all be healthier.
Editor’s note: The author wishes to emphasise the powerfully neutralising and virus-killing nature of breastmilk within this article. The recommendation by researchers to halt (if only for an hour or so) breastmilk’s protective mechanism in favour of introducing a live virus into the system is under question. Why aren’t we encouraging breastfeeding and improving water supply/hygiene instead of jabbing experimental vaccines into these babies whilst depriving them of breastmilk for any period at all?
