Breastmilk, PCBs, dioxins and vitamin K deficiency: discussion paper. 1989, Koppe, J R Soc Med

The late form of hemorrhagic disease of newborns is a new disease that was described in 1985 and is observed only in children on exclusive BF. Breast milk in industrialized countries is contaminated polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF). Xenobiotics were found in the milk of Dutch mothers, but they were not found in the milk of a woman who recently migrated from Suriname to a woman who had immigrated from Suriname 15 years ago xenobiotics were also found. It is known that PCB, PCDD and PCDF cause liver enlargement, increased blood clotting time, cirrhosis of the liver and t Clinical symptoms of infants whose mothers were poisoned by these substances included a slowing of growth, a smaller circumference of the head, hirsutism, etc. Those who were breast-fed with breast milk containing PCBs were observed, among other things, fatigue, anorexia, abdominal pain, vomiting and eczema. Monkeys were found fatty liver, atrophy of the pancreas and hemorrhage in the digestive tract after a high dose. Millions of chickens that die due to contaminated food experience subepicardial bleeding. In mice, the wolf mouth, bleeding and subcutaneous edema are observed. The authors have checked the level of dioxins in the milk of 14 mothers. The mothers of 4 babies who had bleeding had a significantly higher dioxin level than the other 10 mothers. The authors believe that there is probably a cause-and-effect relationship between PCBs, dioxins and furans in breast milk and late hemorrhagic disease. These xenobiotics may also be associated with prolonged jaundice in newborns. More: [1] [2]

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A outbreak among men who have sex with men (MSM), predominantly linked with the EuroPride, the Netherlands, July 2016 to February 2017. 2017, Freidl, Euro Surveill

It all started with a gay parade in Amsterdam in 2016, which attracted half a million visitors.In total, the Netherlands recorded 48 cases among men.

Anti-vaxxers

Negative attitude of highly educated parents and health care workers to future vaccinations in the Dutch childhood vaccination program. 2005, Hak, Vaccine

Parents with higher education are 3 times more likely to refuse vaccinations.
Medical workers are 4 times more likely to refuse vaccinations.
Atheists are 2.6 times more likely to refuse vaccinations. (Netherlands)

Pneumococcus

Colonisation by Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus in healthy children. 2004, Bogaert, Lancet

In a clinical study of the pneumococcal vaccine in the Netherlands, it was found that colonization with pneumococcal vaccine serotypes negatively correlated with colonization with S. aureus. Between the non-vaccine serotypes and the golden staphylococcus there was no correlation. The risk of acute otitis media caused by S. aureus increased after vaccination.

Haemophilus influenzae

Increase in the number of invasive Haemophilus influenzae type b infections. 2005, Spanjaard, Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd

The Netherlands, the incidence of Hib declined after vaccination began, reached a minimum in 1993, and then began to grow again, probably because the bacteria "natural booster" are much less likely to disappear, which leads to a weakening of immunity, and to increased susceptibility to infection. And maybe because that vaccination has destroyed strains with a thin capsule, and left strains with more thick capsule. More: [1], [2], [3].

Whooping cough

Pathogen adaptation under imperfect vaccination: implications for pertussis. 2005, van Boven, Proc Biol Sci

While the number of cases of whooping cough among unvaccinated individuals has increased, the number of cases among vaccinated individuals has increased even more. Most cases of whooping cough happen among vaccinated.
Also, according to data from the CDC, most patients with pertussis-induced whooping cough have been vaccinated.

Whooping cough

Adaptation of Bordetella pertussis to vaccination: a cause for its reemergence? 2001, Mooi, Emerg Infect Dis

The authors performed a genetic analysis of pertussis bacterial strains in the Netherlands and concluded that the bacterium had mutated and adapted according to the vaccine. The predominate strains became those with different, mutated forms of pertactin and pertussis toxin. These strains did not exist before vaccination against pertussis began. The same trend was also observed in Finland, the USA and Italy.
