The Vaccine Controversy
Does the Benefit outweigh the Risk?
An academic circumspection

The general public is essentially unaware of the true number of people -- mostly children -- who have been permanently damaged or killed by vaccines. Every year between 12,000 and 14,000 reports of adverse reactions to vaccines are made to the FDA (data initially accessible only through the Freedom of Information Act). These figures include hospitalizations, irreversible brain damage, and hundreds of deaths. Considering that these numbers may represent just 10 percent, the true figures could be as high as 140,000 adverse events annually. However, even this figure could be conservative. According to Dr. David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, "Only about 1 percent of serious events [adverse drug reactions] are reported to the FDA." Thus, it is entirely possible that mandatory vaccines adversely affect millions of people every year. (Think Twice, Secret Government Database of Vaccine-Damaged Children, http://thinktwice.com/ secret.htm)
Back in 1975, my entire regiment lined up and got our Swine Flue vaccinations. Of 660 men, I know of at least 4 or 5 that were hospitalized and many more were sick enough to miss work. My opinion of vaccines has been reserved ever since.
The Report of the Surgeon General of the Army, (1919) vol. I, page 37, gives the number of admissions to hospitals during the year 1918, on account of vaccinia (vaccination disease) as 10,830.
The Report of the Surgeon General of the Army, (1918) gives me the number of admissions to hospitals during the year 1917, on account of vaccinia and vaccinal-typhoid combined as 19,608.
In only two years there were over 30,000 American soldiers hospitalized by vaccination. This does not take into consideration the thousands who were seriously ill but not critical enough to be hospitalized, or the cases of chronic disease that developed later as a result of the cumulative effects of poisons from vaccines and drugs.

The dangers of Vaccines are not a new revelation
The Royal Jennerian Society, under Jenner’s direction, reports in 1806 poor, and even reversed, success rates in cases of smallpox. Also in 1806, The Royal College of Surgeons issued a circular letter to 1,000 of its members asking their experience with vaccination. They received 426 answers, with the information of 56 cases of smallpox in the vaccinated, 66 cases of eruption and 24 bad arms. 37% of the inoculated suffered from vaccination disease. (Dr. William Winterburn, The Value of Vaccination: circa 1806 - Eleanor McBean, THE POISONED NEEDLE Suppressed Facts About Vaccination, (1957),http://www.whale.to /a/mcbean3. html# CHAPTER%20V)
Winterburn gives additional proof of the failure of vaccination to protect from smallpox, in a report of an epidemic in Marseilles where 2,000 vaccinated persons were stricken with smallpox; and the epidemic of 1831 in Wittenberg when 995 ‘protected’ ones succumbed to the disease.
The London MEDICAL OBSERVER, (VoL VI, 1810) published 535 cases of smallpox after vaccination, some performed by Jenner himself, including 97 fatal cases, and 150 cases of serious injury arising from vaccination among whom were 10 medical personnel. (Medical Voodoo — Hale p. 85 - Eleanor McBean, THE POISONED NEEDLE Suppressed Facts About Vaccination, (1957),http://www.whale.to /a/mcbean3. html# CHAPTER%20V)
In the New York Press, January 26, 1909, W. B. Clark stated, Cancer was practically unknown until cowpox vaccination began to be introduced. He is quoted as saying, ‘Ihave seen 200 cases of cancer and I never saw a case of cancer in an unvaccinated person.’
1911, Dr. Robert Bell, cancer specialist of the British Cancer Hospital, observed so many cases of cancers at the site of the vaccination that cause him to affirm that, "The chief, if not the sole cause of the monstrous increase in cancer has been vaccination."
1916, Dr. E. J. Post, a prominent physician of Berlmont, Michigan, said, "I have removed cancers from vaccinated arms exactly where the person was injected”
1941, Dr. Dennis Turnbull, who had studied cancer for 30 years declared, ‘I have no hesitation in stating that in my judgement the most frequent disposing condition for cancerous development is infused into the blood by vaccination and re-vaccination.’
And lastly, 1955, Dr. Forbes Laurie, Medical Director of the Metropolitan Cancer Hospital, London said. ‘I am thoroughly convinced that the increase of cancer is due to vaccination.’ (Eleanor McBean, THE POISONED NEEDLE Suppressed Facts About Vaccination, (1957),http://www.whale.to /a/mcbean3. html# CHAPTER%20V)
Drugless doctors are using cancer treatments that are 80 per cent more effective in removing cancer than those used and endorsed by Orthodox Medicine. But the monopolistic domination of the A.M.A. constantly thwarts these efforts toward non-Rockefellerian improvement. It is no secret that the newspapers are also muzzled by the A.M.A., and are not permitted to publish any health news, or information or advertise any books about health without the sanction of the Medical Gestapo.
“Because of this medically made iron curtain, the public is shown only one side of the cancer picture and is constantly conditioned by the orthodoxy endorsed by the medical hierarchy. (From CANCER FACTS — 1955 — by the American Cancer Society)“ (Eleanor McBean, THE POISONED NEEDLE Suppressed Facts About Vaccination, (1957),http://www.whale.to /a/mcbean3. html# CHAPTER%20V)
Polio Vaccinations and Cancer
In the 1950s, Doctors Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin isolated the poliovirus strains to make vaccines.
In 1941, Drs. Francis and Mack isolated the Mahoney poliovirus “from the pooled feces of three healthy children in Cleveland.” Dr. Salk then subjected the strain to passages through fourteen living monkeys and two cultures of monkey testicular cultures.
In 1954, the strain, now called Monk14 T2, was given to Drs. Li and Schaeffer who subjected the virus to nine more passages through monkey testicular cultures. Next, the strain, now called Monk14 T11, underwent fifteen more passages in monkey testicular cultures, eighteen passages in monkey kidney cells, two passages through the skin of living rhesus monkeys, and additional passages through African Green monkey skin and monkey kidney cell cultures. This strain was now called MS10 T43 or LS-c. In 1956, Dr. Sabin took this virus and passaged it through seven cultures of African Green Monkey kidney cells. That same year, the pharmaceutical company, Merck, Sharp & Dohme, passed the strain, now called LS-c, 2ab/KP2, through a rhesus monkey kidney cell culture. The resulting material was called Sabin Original Merck (SOM) and was provided to Lederle in 1960 as the seed material to manufacture its polio vaccine.
There was a problem, however, with using these monkey kidney cells to both create the original vaccine strains and grow the vaccine in large quantities. Monkeys contain simian viruses. When the poliovirus was passaged through the monkeys or grown on the monkey kidney cells for production, extraneous viruses became part of the final poliovirus vaccine.
As early as 1953, Dr. Herald R. Cox, a scientist working at Lederle Laboratories, one of the polio vaccine manufacturers, published an article warning of the potential danger of picking up other contaminating viruses or other microbic agents infectious for man.”
Additionally, in 1960, the pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. wrote to the U.S. Surgeon General: ‘Our scientific staff have emphasized to us that there are a number of serious scientific and technical problems that must be solved before we could engage in large-scale production of live poliovirus vaccine. Most important among these is the problem of extraneous contaminating simian viruses that may be extremely difficult to eliminate and which may be difficult if not impossible to detect at the present stage of the technology.“
Bernice Eddy, Ph.D., of the National Institute of Health discovered the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) from cells of the same species of monkeys used to create and produce the oral polio vaccine. She discovered that the cells would die without any apparent cause. She then took suspensions of the cellular material from these kidney cell cultures and injected them into hamsters. Cancers grew in the hamsters. Shortly thereafter, scientists at the pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. discovered what would later be determined to be the same virus identified by Eddy.
In 1960, Doctors Benjamin Sweet and Maurice Hilleman, the Merck scientists who named the virus SV40, published their findings: “Viruses are commonly carried by monkeys and may appear as contaminants in cell cultures of their tissues .. As shown in this report, all 3 types of Sabin’s live poliovirus vaccine, now fed to millions of persons of all ages, were contaminated with SV40 virus. “
The SV40 virus was injected at once into 13 newborn hamsters and 10 newborn mice. Subcutaneous neoplasms indistinguishable from those induced by the rhesus monkey kidney extracts developed in 11 of the 13 hamsters. Subsequent studies performed in the early 1960s demonstrated that SV40 caused brain tumors in animals and that SV40 could transform or turn cancerous normal human tissue.
By 1960, the polio vaccine had been administered to about 98 million American children and adults and millions in the USSR. It was estimated that 10% to 30% of the vaccines contained live SV40. The federal agency in charge of vaccine licensing and safety, The Division of Biologics Standards of the National Institute of Health, agency did not order a recall of any of the SV40-contaminated vaccines. The tainted vaccines continued to be administered until 1963 when they were all used and replaced by allegedly SV40-free vaccines. (Michael E. Horwin, M.A., J.D, Simian Virus 40 (SV40): A Cancer Causing Monkey Virus from FDA-Approved Vaccines, 2003, Albany Law Journal of Science & Technology, Volume 13, Number 3, http://www.sv40foundation.org/CPV-link.html)
From 1950 to 1998, the overall incidence of cancer rose about 60 percent, with much higher increases for cancer of some organs. For non-Hodgkins lymphoma and multiple myeloma, the increase has been 200 percent. Breast cancers have increased by 60 percent. Prostate cancer has increased 200 percent. For testicular cancer in men of the ages 28 to 35, there has been a 300 percent increase since 1950.
And don't let anybody fool you into thinking that the cancer rate increase is because the population is getting older -- these rates are age-adjusted. The cancer rates of a group of 50 year old men in 1990, for example, are compared to the cancer rates of a group of men in 1950. (Robert Weissman , The Politics of Cancer, 22 Jan 1999, essential.org/ corp-focus/msg00002.html)
One of the interesting Rockerfellerisms of Orthodox Medicine is that it continually generates new long-term cash cow customers for itself.
Vaccinations and Children
Brain cells are vulnerable because it takes 24 months for their insulation (Myelin) to finish growing for protection, and the insulation allows electrical current for movement, which is why the babies of humans take a year to walk.
Autism is developmental brain damage in the Limbic System (whole or partial cell loss), to different degrees, depending on brand, the weight of the child, the age of the child, the genes of the child, the stage of myelin development, the stage of brain cell development, and the stage of immune system development. The most severe cases of Autism were caused early on by the toxoid vaccines and the other bacterial shots with Diphtheria toxin added to make them work. (Allison Jones, Tracking Vaccinations down the Autism Trail, Neoteric Publications, Seattle, WA, http://www.trackingvaccinations.com)
Thimerosal is the preservative of choice for vaccine manufacturers. First introduced by Eli Lilly and Company in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the company began selling it as a preservative in vaccines in the 1940s. Thimerosal contains 49.6 percent mercury by weight and is metabolized or degraded into ethylmercury and thiosalicylate. Mercury, or more precisely, ethylmercury, is the principle agent that kills contaminants. Unfortunately, mercury also kills much more than that.
Mercury is classified as a hazardous material that could cause death if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Studies indicate that mercury tends to accumulate in the brains of primates and other animals after they are injected with vaccines. Mercury poisoning has been linked to cardiovascular disease, autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and many other nervous system conditions. The toxicity of mercury has never been in question. The real question is precisely how much mercury-laced thimerosal is toxic, and what are the possible consequences for our children at low doses?
Thimerosal was eliminated in many countries 20 years ago. In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later. Studies on thimerosal poisoning also describe tubular necrosis and nervous system injury, including coma and death. As a result of these findings, Russia banned thimerosal from children's vaccines in 1980. Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative.
Some vaccines, such as vaccines for hepatitis B, required of all health professionals, contained as much as 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose. That's more than 100 times the EPA's upper limit standard when administered to infants.
Hepatitis B vaccines aren't the only immunizations under suspicion. According to Burton Goldberg in Alternative Medicine, scientists are finding stronger and stronger links between thimerosal and neurological damage. One report by Dr. Vijendra Singh of the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Michigan found a higher incidence of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) antibodies in autistic children.
The National Vaccine Information Center in Virginia, has noted a strong association between the MMR vaccine and autistic features. Reporting similar findings, the Encephalitis Support Group in England claims that children who became autistic after the MMR vaccine started showing autistic symptoms as early as 30 days after vaccination. The diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus vaccine (DPT) given at two, four and six months has triggered autistic symptoms, as well.
Links between Autism and Thimerosal
Autism affects 500,000 to 1.5 million Americans and has grown at an annual rate of 10 to 17 percent since the late 1980s. California found a 273 percent increase in autism between 1987 and 1998. Maryland reported a 513 percent increase in autism between 1993 and 1998 and several dozen other states reported similar findings. Some scientists say the estimated number of cases of autism has increased 15-fold –1,500 percent – since 1991, when the number of childhood vaccinations doubled. Before 1991 only one in every 2,500 children was diagnosed with autism, and today, one in 166 children now have the disease.
This increase in reported autism cases eerily parallels the increase in the number and frequency of thimerosal-containing vaccinations administered to infants. As of today, children are given as many as 21 immunizations in the first 15 months of life. (Dawn Prate, citizen journalist, The great thimerosal cover-up: Mercury, vaccines, autism and your child's health, September 22, 2005, Natural News.com, http://www.naturalnews.com/ 011764.html)
The issue that Confuses this author is the statement that, if any one dose of a childhood vaccine only contains the safe and allowable level of mercury; then how can orthodox medicine justify multiple dosing by giving multiple vaccinations simultaneously?
The Urabe Atrocity
This is the MMR vaccine with the Urabe mumps strain, called Pluserix & Immravax in UK, Trivirix in Canada. Canada withdrew licenses for the vaccine in May 1988, yet the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunizations still went ahead and introduced it into the UK, in 1988! Four years later, on September 14, 1992 it was eventually banned in the UK after it was revealed that children developed meningitis. Following the New Zealand government withdrew Pluserix, on Sept 16, 1992.
Yet some five years later, in 1997: the Smith Kline Beecham Urabe MMR jab was used in a mass vaccination programe in Brazil.
Just one, obvious and extreme example of the Pharmaceutical / Governmental sponsored agencies complete disregard for child health, and in favor with mass corporate gain. ( Vaccination Statistics http://www.whale.to/vaccines.html )
The public impression
The public impression today is that mercury just isn’t used in vaccines any more, and that vaccines are relativity safe. Then I ask just what we can make of the following press releases:
London Associated Press (Maria Cheng - Medical Writer), as reported in the Chicago Tribune, October 21, 2011: Experts Say Mercury Ban Could Hamper Vaccine Production. Scientists are warning officials negotiating a global treaty on mercury that banning the deadly chemical completely would be dangerous for public health because of the chemical's use in vaccines. The ban option is one of several proposals on the table for a meeting later this month in Nairobi, but a final treaty isn't expected until 2013. The WHO says that "mercury is one of the top 10 chemicals of public health concern and is highly toxic…” (From the American Society for Clinical pathology, Daily Diagnosis, 10/24/2011http://ascp.bulletin healthcare com/story.aspx?dt=111024)
United Kingdom’s Daily Mail (Sadie Whitelocks) reported on October 27 2011: 300,000 doses of flu vaccine Preflucel withdrawn in alert over side-effects. The flu vaccine has been recalled from thousands of surgeries and pharmacies across Europe amid fears it is making people ill. The drug is to be immediately withdrawn following fears from health bosses that the most recent batch, issued last month, is causing side-effects. Newbury-based Baxter Healthcare, which manufacturers the drug, approved for use in March said that patients with concerns should contact their GP. A statement read: 'There has been a higher-than-expected reporting of adverse reactions after administration of vaccines from this batch. 'Any stock should be quarantined and returned via the normal channels. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2054160/300-000-doses-flu-vaccine-Preflucel-withdrawn-alert-effects.html#ixzz1fXqwog4X)
How about the new mandatory HPV Vaccine?
The Texas based Merk & Company is the second largest pharmaceutical manufacture in the world, according to revenue. It is also the company that made many headlines at the turn of the century over its wonder drug Vioxx.
Vioxx was used to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and certain forms of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis; to manage acute pain in adults; to treat migraines; and to treat menstrual pain. Wow, one single drug could do all that.
However, Merk & Co. was forced to announce a voluntary withdrawal of the drug, Vioxx, from the U.S. and worldwide market in 2004. This withdrawal is due to safety concerns of an increased risk of cardiovascular events (including heart attack and stroke) in patients taking Vioxx. Let me repeat those darn side effects – heart attack and stroke. OOPS! (Drug information online @ Drugs.com http://www.drugs.com/vioxx.html)
Currently, Merk 7 Co. is aggressively lobbying law makers to mandate its new HPV vaccine for all children. Merck, advertises GARDASIL as the only human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine that helps protect against 4 types of HPV. In girls and young women ages 9 to 26, GARDASIL helps protect against 2 types of HPV that cause about 75% of cervical cancer cases, and 2 more types that cause 90% of genital warts cases. In boys and young men ages 9 to 26, GARDASIL helps protect against 90% of genital warts cases. GARDASIL also helps protect girls and young women ages 9 to 26 against 70% of vaginal cancer cases and up to 50% of vulvar cancer cases. (http://www.gardasil.com/ index.html?WT.mc id=GL0ES&MTD=2)
Since Gardasil’s introduction in 2006, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has received more than 20,000 reports of adverse side effects reportedly related to Gardasil. (Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., Attorneys at Law, The Truth about Gardasil, http://www.thetruthaboutgardasil.com/)
It was in 2008 when Judicial Watch obtained documents from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration documenting “anaphylactic shock,” “foaming at mouth,” “grand mal convulsion,” “coma” and “now paralyzed” descriptions of the complications from Gardasil.
At that time, the organization’s work uncovered reports of about one death a month, bringing the total death toll from the drug to at least 18 and as many as 20 at that time. The new report documents that there have been at least another 16 fatalities in the months since, along with 789 “serious” reports of reactions submitted to the FDA. Two hundred thirteen of the cases in the most recent reporting period resulted in a permanent disability and 25 resulted in Guillain-Barre syndrome. (Bob Unruh, Controversial STD drug tied to 16 more deaths, 09/28/2010, WorldNetDaily Exclusive: http://www.wnd.com/2010/09/209341/ )
So, I ask: “Just how safe is this new vaccine?”
Vaccinations and Autoimmune Syndromes
Vaccines are designed to produce an immune response, an attack against a disabled germ particle. It is the science of immune response reactions that makes dead bacterial vaccines work, by stimulating the immune system with some of the most poisonous toxins ever produced by bacteria. They are designed to make immune systems attack every foreign protein – including the target protein, that’s how they work as vaccines!
Infectious agents are the most commonly putative triggers of human autoimmune disease. The classic example is streptococcal infection leading to the development of rheumatic heart disease. Guillain–Barré syndrome has been associated with a number of bacterial and viral infections, and reactive arthritis follows a variety of gastrointestinal infections. Epidemiological evidence associates Type I diabetes mellitus with previous rubella and possibly with Coxsackie virus B4. More than a dozen viral agents have been claimed to precipitate the onset of multiple sclerosis, and a similarly long list of putative viral agents can be assembled for lupus. In fact, it seems probable that a number of different infectious agents can give rise to the same autoimmune disorder in genetically predisposed individuals.
With autoimmune disorders, the immune system reacts to normal body tissues. What causes the immune system to no longer tell the difference between healthy body tissues and antigens is unknown. One theory is that exposure to foreign proteins, such as bacteria, and drugs may trigger some of these changes, especially in people who have genes that make them more likely to get autoimmune disorders. (MedlinePlus, the National Institutes of Health's Web site for patients and their families and friends, Produced by the National Library of Medicine, Autoimmune Disorders, 2010, http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ ency/article/ 000816 .htm)
The way infectious agents modulate the autoimmune process is not clear. The most popular explanation suggests molecular mimicry between the infectious agent and our own cellular tissue. (Noel R Rose, Introduction to Autoimmunity, October 2002, Journal of Investigative Dermatology Symposium Proceedings, http://www.nature.com/ jidsp/journa l/v9/n1/full/ 5640124a.html)
Of course all the literature suggest that the benefits of your yearly flue shot outweigh the potential risk, But Ponder, the cumulative effect of that yearly flue shot, in five years, how about ten years. One of the interesting Rockerfellerisms of Orthodox Medicine is that it continually generates new long-term cash cow customers for itself.
Dr. S. S. Goldwater, New York Commissioner of Hospitals pointed out in The Modern Hospital Magazine that the present measures used to check contagious diseases may permit of longer life — but not of stronger life. As a result of the drugs, vaccines and other suppressive treatments used to check diseases, he says that, "chronic diseases are growing at such a rate that America may become a nation of invalids. Over half the hospital beds are filled with chronic sufferers, both old and young." (Health Practitioner’s Journal, June, 1944)
Were Vaccinations ever really Necessary
Not only does the anti-vaccine lobby make the point that the risks DO NOT outweigh the benefits, but also argues that the downward trend in death from disease has little to do with the introduction of life saving vaccines.
Why Vaccines Don't Work as Advertised (http://www.heilkunst.com/drugs10.html)
In 1949, the DTP vaccine was licensed to prevent diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough) issuing forth the modern use of vaccines in the prevention of childhood illnesses. Polio immunization was later introduced to prevent that dreaded disease. In 1963, the measles vaccine was licensed and was combined with mumps and rubella toxoids to create the MMR vaccine.
In more recent times the hepatitis B and chickenpox vaccines have been developed and incorporated into our health care system. Now a child can expect to receive up to 33 vaccines during his or her childhood with more vaccines on the horizon, such as herpes zoster (shingles), West Nile virus, influenza, pneumococcal, HPV and many more...
One of the chief concepts that vaccine proponents tell us, and that we generally believe in modern society, is that the use of vaccines is responsible for the virtual elimination of many childhood scourges that used to ravage the world. We are told, and assume, that in the 1800s and early in the 1900s many diseases killed a large number of people and that vaccines were invented and stopped these diseases from being a threat. But is this in fact the case?
On the face of it, we cannot help but assume that vaccines have played a key role in improving all of our lives. But looking carefully at the evidence over a longer period of time reveals a different picture of disease evolution and the role vaccines have played.
A review of " Professor Evlynn Maxine Hammonds, Childhood’s Deadly Scourge: The Campaign to Control Diphtheria in New York City, 1880-1930, 2002, John Hopkins University Press” states:
"During the last two decades of the 19th century diphtheria was the leading cause of death of toddlers in the industrialized world, in some cities killing more than a thousand in a single year. In contrast, since 1980 fewer than 100 cases have been reported in the entire United States. Although diphtheria is hardly the only infectious disease to have thus faded, its story is unique because the early period of its decline can be directly linked to advances in bacteriologic knowledge and practice. Between 1880 and 1930 health authorities in New York City were responsible for much of the practical innovation in the control of diphtheria, as well as a good share of scientific progress."1
The Vital Statistics of the United States contains compiled statistics for a wide variety of information since early in the 1900s. Among those are death rates from all diseases, including infectious diseases. An introductory statement from the 1937 statistics indicates that death rates from infectious diseases declined greatly in the early part of the century. These declines occurred well before the advent of vaccines to treat these conditions.
"The trend in death rates for specific causes, over the past 20 or 30 years, may be characterized by two general statements. In the first place, there has been a great reduction in the death rates for infectious and preventable diseases; in the second place, there has been an increase in the rates for certain diseases characteristic of older ages. Greatest proportional rate decreases have taken place for such diseases as typhoid and parathyroid fever, which has declined from a rate of 23.5 in 1910 to 2.1 in 1937; and diphtheria, which declined from a rate of 21.4 in 1910 to 2.0 in 1937. ... The rate reductions for infectious and preventable diseases can be largely attributed to the development of modern public-health practice."2
From these figures, we can see that death rates from typhoid decreased by 91 percent from 1910 to 1937 and death rates from diphtheria declined by 90.5 percent during the same time period. The decrease in diphtheria occurred well before the use of vaccination.
An even more recent editorial statement from the Journal of Pediatrics states that proper sanitation was largely responsible for the early large declines in infectious diseases.
"...The largest historical decrease in morbidity and mortality caused by infectious disease was experienced not with the modern antibiotic and vaccine era, but after the introduction of clean water and effective sewer systems."3
Again, in a 2001 paper in the Journal of Infection Control:
"The conquest of infectious disease and the health revolution it initiated is arguably one of the greatest achievements of Western civilization. Yet the phenomenon is largely unknown and rarely taught, even in history courses...
However, except for the smallpox vaccination, which was introduced in 1798 and made compulsory in England in 1853, the overall contribution of medical innovations to the health revolution of the 1800s is difficult to validate.
Diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis vaccine arrived on the scene only after disease mortality rates already had been reduced significantly; measles, rubella, and polio vaccines did not become available until the middle of the 20th century, when most infant deaths were the result of other causes. The same holds true for sulfa drugs and antibiotics. Their contribution is unequivocal, but they did not affect mortality rates until the 1940s."4
Another paper published in the medical journal The Lancet in 1977 by the Department of Community Medicine in the United Kingdom also indicates that vaccines were not responsible for the decline in disease rates in that country.
"There was a continuous decline [whooping cough deaths], equal in each sex, from 1937 onward. Vaccination, beginning on small scale in some places around 1948 and on a national scale in 1957, did not affect the rate of decline if it be assumed that one attack usually confers immunity, as in most major communicable diseases of childhood. ... The steady decline of whooping cough between 1930 and 1957 is predictive of a linear exponential decay characteristic of a general and progressive lessening in the volume and spread of infection among the susceptible population. With this pattern well established before 1957, there is no evidence that vaccination played a major role in the decline in incidence and mortality in the trend of events."5
...Thomas McKeown, professor of social medicine in the University of Birmingham Medical School between 1950 and 1978, is still regarded as a major social philosopher of medicine, and is known for his important works in epidemiology and the practice and purpose of medicine. His conclusion was also that diseases were declining well before medical interventions such as vaccinations came into standard use.
"The distinguished epidemiologist Thomas McKeown (1912-1988) maintained that reductions in deaths associated with infectious diseases (air-, water-, and food-borne diseases) cannot have been brought about by medical advances, since such diseases were declining long before effective means were available to combat them."6
Another author shows that disease and mortality was falling before the advent of vaccines or drug therapies:
"...In 1869 there were 716 deaths from typhus in London; by 1885 this had been reduced to 28; and at the beginning of the 20th century there was none. Similar declines could be given for other infectious diseases.
Tuberculosis began a remarkable disappearing act. Killing perhaps 500 out of every 100,000 Europeans in 1845, consumption slowly but continuously sank to 50 per 100,000 by 1950. Curative medicine played little part in that transition. The disappearance began before Koch discovered the tubercle bacillus.
By the time antibiotics entered the picture, TB in cities such as New York had fallen to eleventh place in the death lists. And the mortality graphs for most of Europe's fatal crowd diseases all dived before antibiotics had been marketed. Whooping cough killed 1400 children out of every million in 1850, but one hundred years later whooping deaths were less than 10 per million.
Scarlet fever behaved in the same way. Measles, typhus, pneumonia, dysentery and polio all share similar histories. Their retreat had a dramatic impact on the European population. By 1900 civilization had lost its biological population check: infectious disease.
After centuries of hostile encounters, humans and microbes found a new adjustment with little interference from drugs or vaccines. In some cases the microbe became less virulent (measles and diphtheria) or the human host more resistant (tuberculosis)."7
In the view of this, how can the statements made by the CDC on how "thanks to vaccines" diseases are a thing of the past be correct?
Back in 1924 Mark Twain was quoted as saying, "There are three kinds of lies — lies, damned lies, and statistics." When Mark Twain made this statement, his point was that numbers could be manipulated by the unscrupulous to misrepresent facts, to justify a particular bias, or fulfill a particular agenda. It is an unhappy fact of modern life that anyone with an idea can support that idea with statistics. The less the public knows about the source of the statistics, the more possible it is to have misinformation posing as scientific results.
Simple statements such as "in the 1920s, over 10,000 people a year died from diphtheria," although accurate are very misleading. Providing a piece of historical fact without any real context and mixing it with statements on how vaccines helped cure these diseases leads the reader to erroneously conclude that vaccines were instrumental in the massive declines of deaths from these diseases.
The CDC's statements on vaccines only provide a few facts and then draw a conclusion on this limited information. To understand the role of vaccines, we must use the raw information and analyze it over a long period of time. However, the common perception is: "thanks to vaccines" diseases will soon be a thing of the past. Mark Twain said, "There are three kinds of lies — lies, damned lies, and statistics."
Polio is virtually nonexistent in the United States today and the propaganda looks like this:
Polio is virtually nonexistent in the United States today. However, according to Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, medical investigator and pediatrician, there is no credible scientific evidence that the vaccine caused polio to disappear. From 1923 to 1953, before the Salk killed-virus vaccine was introduced, the polio death rate in the United States and England had already declined on its own by 47 percent and 55 percent, respectively. Statistics show a similar decline in other European countries as well. And when the vaccine did become available, many European countries questioned its effectiveness and refused to systematically inoculate their citizens. Yet, polio epidemics also ended in those countries as well. (Interna-tional Mortality Statistics (1981) by Michael Alderson.)
Were Vaccinations ever really Necessary
We all want to be safe and healthy. We want only the best for our children. The propaganda machine, funded by giant pharmaceutical corporations in partnership with government agencies, have told us for years that vaccines are a necessary link for good health and long life. That is what they tell us anyway. However, look at the data yourself. Be informed and be aware. The drive for profits and mass population control seem to conflict with the wellbeing of the individual.
As for myself, I have seen government issued vaccines do great harm. I am also amazed that no one else seems to notice the link between vaccines and cancer. For example, in 1950 the rate of polio in the US was around 8% while the cancer rate hovered around 1%; in contrast now the rate of polio in the US hovers around 0%, but the rate of cancer combined averages >85% of the population late in life.
Do I trust my government? That is certainly and easily – NO! It was my government that lined my regiment up and gave us all swine flu vaccinations back in 1975. It is my government that seems to be a part of the great conspiracy to inoculate the population over and over. It is my government, in the guise of public health that mandates vaccinations by law. It was my government that passed legislation that prevents an individual from holding a pharmaceutical company liable in any vaccine related injury.
It was my government that President Obama represented, when he formally apologized to the nation of Hati in September of 2009. It was my government, in the guise of public health, which went into Hati in the late 1950s and inoculated thousands of their inpatient with Syphilis just so we could return and do a mass clinical trial on penicillin. It was even my own government that ran that exact same Syphilis trial on the airmen of Tuskegee Air Base in 1958.
Actually, there are hundreds of examples of my government using the population at large to test many bioactive, chemical, and radioactive agents.
We have been lied to. We have been experimented upon. We have been propagandized into believing it is all in the best interest of the greater good and overall public health.
Think for yourself!
Then form your own conclusions.
