(NaturalNews) Public health officials in California are having a meltdown following confirmation that 32 children thus far have contracted measles in the Golden State this year, up from three confirmed cases this same time last year. And news reports obviously crafted to generate fear and push more people to get vaccinated are surfacing all across the internet in response, even though the current infection rate represents only about one in a million people.

The Los Angeles Times, for instance, recently ran a piece entitled "Measles cases continue to rise in California, officials warn," which claims that getting vaccinated is the best way to avoid falling victim to this non-epidemic. Nowhere in this report is it explained what percentage of the people contracting measles had previously been vaccinated, an important little factoid that is often missing from mainstream media coverage because it makes vaccines look bad.

In this case, it turns out that some of the children who contracted measles had not been vaccinated, which news outlets like KPBS are shamelessly blaming for the disease's spread. And yet, at the same time, an even higher number of the infected children had been vaccinated in accordance with the federal government's official vaccination schedule, which the same report glosses over as inconsequential.

Media blaming unvaccinated children for measles, even though science shows vaccines spread disease

Other media reports are not as coy in blaming the unvaccinated for this minor outbreak, which the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is now using as a tool of terror to push more people to get their shots. The boot-licking corporate rag TIME recently ran a feature piece tying the measles outbreak in California to four other diseases that it claims are "making a comeback thanks to anti-vaxxers."

The growing hostility toward those who choose not to vaccinate is alarming, not only because it erroneously blames individuals with a common stance on vaccines for spreading diseases that vaccinated folks should already be immune to if vaccines really work as claimed, but even more so because this prevailing viewpoint is completely anti-science.

First off, vaccines do not provide lifelong protection against disease. They never have, they never will, and anyone who claims otherwise is lying to you. This is why vaccinated individuals have to continually get "booster" shots to extend the duration of their immunity, which in and of itself is already greatly limited compared to the lifelong immunity the body would develop naturally in response to disease exposure without vaccines.

Vaccines provide limited protection against disease while putting others at risk

Vaccinated individuals, as explained by Dr. Paul G. King, Ph.D., in a paper on the whooping cough vaccine, are also more susceptible than unvaccinated individuals to contract disease, as well as to act as carriers that spread it to others. This means that the real threat during an epidemic is those who followed the government's guidelines as opposed to those who thought for themselves.

"The attenuated viruses in MMR can occasionally and to a limited extent be shed from a vaccinated individual into the environment," admits Merck & Co., manufacturer of the combination measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. "The number of vaccinated individuals that do shed the virus is quite small but it definitely does occur, and so as a consequence of that there is a small probability that unvaccinated individuals could pick up some form of shed vaccine virus."
