  • The immune system is our body’s defense against foreign invaders.
  • There are two types of immune system responses: innate immunity and acquired immunity.
  • Mass vaccination can result in vaccine- induced immune overload leading to detrimental health outcomes.

We often hear the terms immunity, the immune system and immune response thrown around when discussing the topic of vaccination. But do we really understand how the immune system is designed, its mechanism and the impact of vaccination on its overall function? Immunology is a vast and complex field of study, however, it is important to understand the basics of immune system function especially when considering vaccination.

The Immune System is the Body’s Barrier to Infection

The human body is designed to protect itself against pathogenic microbes and toxins that cause infections and disease. The immune system is your body’s defense against foreign invaders. It is essentially a network of cells, tissues, molecules and organs that collaborate together to defend the body from being attacked by pathogens such as bacteria, parasites and fungi that can potentially make you sick.1 Since the human body provides many pathogens with a perfect environment to thrive in, the immune system is responsible for destroying them so that you can remain healthy.1

The immune system protects the body from dangerous substances by recognizing and responding to what are known as antigens. An antigen is a substance, usually a protein, found on the surface of cells, viruses, fungi or bacteria. Non-living substances such as  chemicals, drugs, and foreign particles (such splinters) can also be categorized as antigens.2

It is important to also note that all cells in the human body contain antigens as well. These antigens are known as human leukocyte antigens (HLAs).3 They are particularly found in large quantities on the surface of leukocytes (white blood cells). HLAs help the immune system distinguish between your body’s healthy tissue and antigens in foreign invaders.3

When the immune system recognizes an antigen in a foreign invader that does not belong in the body, it stimulates an immune response through the production of antibodies.2 Antibodies are protein molecules that facilitate the elimination of foreign substances.4 In cases where the immune system malfunctions and cannot differentiate between healthy tissue and foreign substances, leukocytes begin to attack the body’s healthy cells resulting in autoimmune diseases.5

The immune response is divided into two types of reactions: innate versus acquired immunity. Both are equally important parts of immune response, however, they differ in several ways.6

Innate Immunity

Innate immunity consists of cells and proteins that are always present in the body from birth; it does not have to be learned through exposure to pathogens.7 It is a non-specific defense mechanism that becomes effective immediately or within hours of the antigen’s presence in the body.8 When microbes  penetrate through the physical  surface of the body (e.g. the skin), they are confronted by cells and molecules that produce a innate immune response.8

For example, when you have a cut, leukocytes immediately begin to attack bacteria at the site of the cut causing redness and swelling. Innate immunity has no memory and  is unable to remember specific foreign antigens, therefore, it does not provide ongoing protection against future infections.7

Acquired Immunity

Unlike innate immunity, acquired immunity is not present at birth. It is learned. What this means is that as your immune system encounters foreign antigens, the components of adaptive immunity learn the most effective way to attack each antigen and begin to develop a memory for that antigen.9 Acquired immunity is also referred to as specific immunity because it specifically tailors its attack to a specific antigen encountered previously. It is characterized by its ability to learn, adapt and memorize.9

Unlike innate immunity that responds immediately, acquired immunity takes time to develop after first exposure to a new antigen. Once the antigen is memorized, subsequent responses to that same antigen are quicker and more effective than that after the first exposure.9 White blood cells responsible for acquired immunity are known as lymphocytes (T cells and B cells).9 B cells produce antibodies, T cells distinguish foreign invader from the body’s healthy tissue and killer T cells destroy infected cells.10

Inflammation and Vaccine-Induced Immune Overload

When foreign substances and invaders enter the body, an inflammatory, protective response is activated by your body’s immune system to deal with injury and irritation caused by the invader.11 Although inflammation is an indication that your body is doing its job in protecting you, excessive, long-term inflammation overburdens the immune system and can be dangerous.11

Vaccines activate an acute inflammatory response in order to stimulate temporary artificial immunity. In the U.S., almost all children are given a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines between day of birth and age 18.12 A peer review study published in Journal of Molecular and Genetic Medicine provides evidence that inflammatory responses stimulated by repeated vaccinations can result in chronic inflammation and immune overload that leads to chronic disease, such as obesity and diabetes, which are among the prevalent childhood diseases involved in the current chronic illness epidemic.13

Immunologist and diabetes researcher, Barthelow Classen, MD, who authored the study, states:

The number of vaccines given to children has continued to rise to a point where we have reached a state of immune overload in roughly the majority of young US children. The new paper reviews the evidence of immune overload and the plethora of different health effects the children are developing because of the immune overload.14

Dr. Classen goes on to say:

The best data indicates that vaccine induced chronic disease is now of a magnitude that dwarfs almost all prior poisoning of humans including poisoning from agents like asbestos, low dose radiation, lead and even cigarettes. Most patients don’t even realize that they are suffering from the adverse effects of vaccines. Even more concerning patients and or their parents are being harassed, accused of practicing poor dieting and exercise habits leading to development obesity and diabetes when in fact they suffer from vaccine induced obesity and diabetes.14

The immune system is naturally designed to protect you from infections and serious complications of infectious diseases if it is functioning normally. The adverse health outcomes, including chronic inflammation, resulting from constant manipulation of the immune system via repeated vaccination throughout infancy and childhood should be fully investigated before it is too late.

    Our immune systems are being battered from infancy. This will continue unabated unless We The People mobilize!!

    You see, vaccine makers have nothing to worry about even if a child dies. This is because they are completely protected by our own corrupt congress!!

    Let’s start by repealing the “1986 Vaccine Injury Law Information”. This law has been shielding Big Pharma for over 30 years from all lawsuits.

    Please google “Repeal Immunity for Drug Companies Against Vaccine Injuries” and sign the petition. This 1986 law must go. Otherwise, no amount of talk will make things better.
    Please take a moment to sign and please share with friends and family.

    Antigens are mentioned: Virus, Bacteria & Fungi. However, I feel One has been left out– Parasites. They are a Real Threat to our Immune system – and are found everywhere. There are so many Factors to our Immune Systems weakening that we all have to be vigilant to Prevent these Pathogens from taking over. I have found this through Kinesiology. A Great Book: The body doesn’t lie- Dr. Diamond MD – found on Amazon – will help you to understand how testing the Immune System through Kinesiology will help. The last factor is EMF’s that are attacking out Nervous Systems & Immune Systems. Combine all of these “factors” with the devastating effects of Vaccines….it is a tuff challenge – but we can do it – I have done it – and hope all of you will do it too. Homeopathics from Newton Labs – also will help in the side effects of Vaccines. I have used them with my Grandchildren – now that they have to be Vaccinated in Calif. Keep fighting the FIGHT against Vaccines.

    I’ve been researching the possibility the annual flu vaccine, by converting naive immune cells to memory cells (for last years virus), predisposes the body to novel new pathogens/virus, which might explain why so many fall ill shortly after getting the flu shot.

    Is there not a temporary shortage of naive immune response capability created when vaccines stimulate this shift to memory cells to obsolete virus?

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    The website has a detailed explanation of how immune activation can, and likely is, causing autism in young children. This is supported by published science that can be downloaded directly from the site. In essence, any inflammation can cause a surge in cytokines and one cytokine in particular, interleukin-6, has been shown to cause autistic symptoms, by itself, in animal experiments.

    We need an office of common sense and truth at the federal government. Anyone with an IQ above a squirrel and 2 hours on the internet could figure out that mercury,aluminum salts,fetal blood tissue,formaldehyde etc.injected into a human body goes to the brain cause these substances accumulate in fatty tissue and the brain has more fatty tissue than anywhere else.The CDC recommended pregnant women not eat tuna because any large fish contains a lot of mercury,but you would eventually excrete most of that mercury,but when you are injected with mercury and aluminum it goes straight to the brain and stays there accumulating these toxic substances endlessly with every injection.The only purpose for this insanity has to be money.The fraud and death administration(FDA) and center for destruction and control(CDC) do not care how many they destroy as long as they get a piece of the action!

      The problem is that vaccine critics throw out statements like this and then get laughed at when there’s no proof. For example, the formaldehyde hypothesis is bad science: Yet we still keep at it and even if the science is against our beliefs we don’t want to give it up. Is the problem really that these things accumulate in the fatty tissue? Then what happens? Where’s the logic, the sequence of steps, in all this?

      Injected with mercury and aluminum and this goes straight to the brain? Not really. How would you explain the biochemical steps involved in this?

      My point is that it’s up to us to have accurate science and to be able to defend our views. We can do this, but not by making assertions that can’t stand up to scrutiny.

        Vaccine injections enter the blood supply directly without going through the usual detoxifying systmes in place, especially the liver, our immune system, antigens, the gut, enzymes in the liver that help breakdown toxins naturally – all this is encountered in our natural physiology before entering the circulation. Vaccines bypass our normal safeguards. Read Tim O’Sheas book for more info – “The Sanctity of Human Blood.”
        great resource and well documented.

      YES, agreed!
      I love what you said about the IQ of a squirrel, LOL
      SO TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Money, money, money……
