Dr. James R. Shannon, former director of the National institute
of health declared, "the only safe vaccine is one that is never used."
Cowpox vaccine was believed able to immunize people against smallpox. At the
time this vaccine was introduced, there was already a decline in the number
of cases of smallpox. Japan introduced compulsory vaccination in 1872. In
1892 there were 165,774 cases of smallpox with 29,979 deaths despite the vaccination
program. Much of the success attributed to vaccination programs may actually
have been due to improvement in public health related to water quality and
sanitation, less crowded living conditions, better nutrition, and higher standards
of living. Typically the incidence of a disease was clearly declining before
the vaccine for that disease was introduced. In England the incidence of polio
had decreased by 82 % before the polio vaccine was introduced in 1956.
In the early 1900s an astute Indiana physician, Dr. W.B. Clarke, stated "Cancer
was practically unknown until compulsory vaccination with cowpox vaccine began
to be introduced. I have had to deal with two hundred cases of cancer, and
I never saw a case of cancer in an unvaccinated person."
There is a widely held belief that vaccines should not be criticized because
the public might refuse to take them. This is valid only if the benefits exceed
the known risks of the vaccines.
Do Vaccines Actually Prevent Disease?
This important question does not appear to have ever been adequately
studied. Vaccines are enormously profitable for drug companies and recent
legislation in the U.S. has exempted lawsuits against pharmaceutical firms
in the event of adverse reactions to vaccines which are very common. In 1975
Germany stopped requiring pertussis (whooping cough) vaccination. Today less
than 10% of German children are vaccinated against pertussis. The number of
cases of pertussis has steadily decreased even though far fewer children
are receiving pertussis vaccine.
Measles outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination rates over 98%
in all parts of the U.S. including areas that had reported no cases of measles
for years. As measles immunization rates rise to high levels measles becomes
a disease seen only in vaccinated persons. An outbreak of measles occurred
in a school where 100% of the children had been vaccinated. Measles mortality
rates had declined by 97 % in England before measles vaccination was instituted.
In 1986 there were 1300 cases of pertussis in Kansas and 90% of these cases
occurred in children who had been adequately vaccinated. Similar vaccine failures
have been reported from Nova Scotia where pertussis continues to be occurring
despite universal vaccination. Pertussis remains endemic in the Netherlands
where for more than 20 years 96% of children have received 3 pertussis shots
by age 12 months.
After institution of diptheria vaccination in England and Wales in 1894 the
number of deaths from diptheria rose by 20% in the subsequent 15 years. Germany
had compulsory vaccination in 1939. The rate of diptheria spiraled to 150,000
cases that year whereas, Norway which did not have compulsory vaccination,
had only 50 cases of diptheria the same year.
The continued presence of these infectious diseases in children who have
received vaccines proves that life long immunity which follows natural infection
does not occur in persons receiving vaccines. The injection process places
the viral particles into the blood without providing any clear way to eliminate
these foreign substances.
Why Do Vaccines Fail To Protect Against Diseases?
Walene James, author of Immunization: the Reality Behind The Myth,
states that the full inflammatory response is necessary to create real
immunity. Prior to the introduction of measles and mumps vaccines children
got measles and mumps and in the great majority of cases these diseases were
benign. Vaccines "trick" the body so it does not mount a complete
inflammatory response to the injected virus.
Vaccines and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome SIDS
The incidence of Sudden Infant Death syndrome SIDS has grown from .55
per 1000 live births in 1953 to 12.8 per 1000 in 1992 in Olmstead County,
Minnesota. The peak incidence for SIDS is age 2 to 4 months the exact time
most vaccines are being given to children. 85 % of cases of SIDS occur in
the first 6 months of infancy. The increase in SIDS as a percentage of total
infant deaths has risen from 2.5 per 1000 in 1953 to 17.9 per 1000 in 1992.
This rise in SIDS deaths has occurred during a period when nearly every childhood
disease was declining due to improved sanitation and medical progress except
SIDS. These deaths from SIDS did increase during a period when the number
of vaccines given a child was steadily rising to 36 per child.
Dr. W. Torch was able to document 12 deaths in infants which appeared within
3½ and 19 hours of a DPT immunization. He later reported 11 new cases
of SIDS death and one near miss which had occurred within 24 hours of a DPT
injection. When he studied 70 cases of SIDS two thirds of these victims
had been vaccinated from one half day to 3 weeks prior to their deaths. None
of these deaths was attributed to vaccines. Vaccines are a sacred cow and
nothing against them appears in the mass media because they are so profitable
to pharmaceutical firms.
There is valid reason to think that not only are vaccines worthless in preventing
disease they are counterproductive because they injure the immune system permitting
cancer, auto-immune diseases and SIDS to cause much disability and death.
Are Vaccines Sterile?
Dr. Robert Strecker claimed that the department of defense DOD was
given $10,000,000 in 1969 to create the AIDS virus to be used as a population-reducing
weapon against blacks. By use of the Freedom of Information Act Dr. Strecker
was able to learn that the DOD secured funds from Congress to perform studies
on immune destroying agents for germ warfare.
Once produced, the vaccine was given in two locations. Smallpox vaccine containing
HIV was given to 100,000,000 Africans in 1977. Over 2000 young white homosexual
males in New York City were given Hepatitis B vaccine that contained HIV virus
in 1978. This vaccine was given at New York City Blood Center. The Hepatitis
B vaccine containing the HIV virus was also administered to homosexual males
in San Francisco, Los Angeles, St.Louis, Houston and Chicago in 1978 and 1979.
U.S. Public Health epidemiology studies have disclosed that these same 6 cities
had the highest incidence of AIDS, Aids related Complex (ARC) and deaths rates
from HIV, when compared to other U.S. cities.
When a new virus is introduced into a community. It takes 20 years for the
number of cases to double. If the fabricated story that green monkey bites
of pygmies led to the HIV epidemic, the alleged monkey bites in the 1940s
should have produced a peak in the incidence of HIV in the 1960s at which
time HIV was non existent in Africa. The World Health Organization (WHO) began
a African smallpox vaccination campaign in 1977 that targeted urban population
centers and avoided pygmies. If the green monkey bites of pygmies truly caused
the HIV epidemic the incidence of HIV in pygmies should have been higher than
in urban citizens. However, the opposite was true.
In 1954 Dr. Bernice Eddy (bacteriologist) discovered live monkey viruses
in supposedly sterile inactivated polio vaccine developed by Dr. Jonas
Salk. This discovery was not well received at the NIH and Dr. Eddy was demoted.
Later Dr. Eddy, working with Sarah Stewart, discovered SE polyoma virus. This
virus was quite important because it caused cancer in every animal receiving
it. Yellow fever vaccine had previously been found to contain avian (bird)
leukemia virus. Later Dr. Hilleman isolated SV 40 virus from both the Salk
and Sabin polio vaccines. There were 40 different viruses in these polio
vaccines they were trying to eradicate. They were never able to get rid of
these viruses ontaminating the polio vaccines. The SV 40 virus causes malignancies.
It has now been identified in 43 % of cases of non-Hodgekin lymphoma ,
36 % of brain tumors , 18 % of healthy blood samples, and 22 % of healthy
semen samples, mesothiolomas and other malignancies. By the time of this discovery
SV 40 had already been injected into 10,000,000 people in Salk vaccine. Gastric
digestion inactivtes some of SV 40 in Sabin vaccine. However, the isolation
of strains of Sabin polio vaccine from all 38 cases of Guillan Barre Syndrome
GBS in Brazil suggests that significant numbers of persons are able to be
infected from this vaccine. All 38 of these patients had received Sabin polio
vaccine months to years before the onset of GBS. The incidence of non-Hodgekin
lymphoma has"mysteriouly" doubled since the 1970s.
Dr. John Martin, Professor of Pathology at the Univ. of Southern California,
was employed by the Viral Oncology Branch of the Bureau of Biologics (FDA)
from 1976 to 1980. While employed there he identified foreign DNA in the live
polio vaccine Orimune Lederle that suggested serious vaccine contamination.
He warned his supervisors about this problem and was told to discontinue his
work as it was outside the scope of testing required for polio vaccine.
Later Dr. Martin learned that all eleven of the African green monkeys used
to grow the Lederle polio virus Orimune had grown simian cytomegalovirus from
kidney cell cultures. Lederle was aware of this viral contamination as their
Cytomegaloviral Contamination Plan clearly showed in 1972. The Bureau
of Biologics decided not to pursue the matter so production of infected polio
In 1955 Dr. Martin identified unique cell destroying viruses termed stealth
viruses in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. These viruses lacked genes
that would enable the immune system to recognize them. Thus they were protected
by the body's failure to develop antiviral antibodies. In March of 1995, Dr.
Martin learned that some of these stealth viruses had originated from African
green monkey simian cytomegalovirus of a type known to infect man.
The Lederle vaccine experience suggests that the higher-ups are not concerned
about sloppy and dangerous preparation of vaccines. Animal cross infection
is a huge unsolved current problem for all vaccine manufacturing. If this
vaccine production sounds like an unbelievable mess to you, you are right.
The influential Club of Rome has a position paper in which they state that
the world population is too large and needs to be reduced by 90 %. This means
that 6 billion people must be reduced to 500 to 600 million. Obviously, creating
famines and genocidal wars such as wrecked havoc in Africa, and loosing new
laboratory-created diseases (HIV, Ebola, Marburg , and probably West Nile
virus and SARS) can help reduce the population. Other elitist groups (Trilaterals,
Bildenbergers) have expressed similar concerns about excess people on planet
The company that was projected to produce the new smallpox vaccine in the
U.S. was in serious trouble in England because of unsatisfactory quality of
operations before setting up their facility in the U.S. Why would their performance
here be any better than it was in England?
If there are important powerful groups of people that are determined to reduce
the world population, what could be a more diabolically clever way to eliminate
people than to inject them with a cancer-causing vaccine? The person receiving
the injection would never suspect that the vaccine taken 10 to 15 years earlier
had caused the cancer to appear.
Other Dangers From Vaccines
In the March 4, 1977 issue of Science Jonas and Darrell Salk warn,
"Live virus vaccines against influenza or poliomyelitis may in each instance
produce the disease it intended to prevent. The live virus against measles
and mumps may produce such side effects as encephalitis (brain damage).
The swine flu vaccine was administered to the American public even though
there had never been a case of swine flu identified in a human. Farmers refused
to use the vaccine because it killed too many animals. Within a few months
of use in humans this vaccine caused many cases of serious nerve injury (Guillan
An article in the Washington Post on Jan. 26, 1988 mentioned that all cases
of polio since 1979 had been caused by the polio vaccine with no known cases
of polio from a wild strain since 1979. This might have created a perfect
situation to discontinue the vaccine, but the vaccine is still given. Vaccines
are a wonderful source of profits with no risks to the drug companies since
vaccine injuries are now recompensed by the government.
The steady escalation in the number of vaccines administered has been followed
by an identical rise in the incidence of auto-immune diseases (rheumatoid
arthritis, subacute lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, asthma)
seen in children. While there is a genetic transmission of some of these diseases
many are probably due to the injury from foreign protein particles, mercury,
aluminum, formaldehyde and other toxic agents injected in vaccines.
In 1999, the rotavirus vaccine was recommended by the Center for Disease
Control for all infants. When this vaccine program was instituted several
infants died and many had life endangering bowel obstructions. Obviously,
there was no evidence that this vaccine would cause such serious problems
before the vaccine was released for usage. Children's vaccines are not studied
for toxicity possibly because such study might eliminate them from being used.
A large study from Australia showed that the risk of developing encephalitis
from the pertussis vaccine was 5 times greater than the risk of developing
encephalitis by contacting pertussis by natural methods.
Naturally acquired immunity by illness evolves by spread of a virus from
the respiratory tract to the liver, thymus, spleen, and bone marrow. When
symptoms begin, the entire immune response has been mobilized to repel the
invading virus. This complex immune system response creates antibodies that
confer life long immunity against that invading virus and prepares the child
to respond promptly to an infection by the same virus in the future.
Vaccination, in contrast, results in the persisting of live virus or other
foreign antigens within the cells of the body, a situation that may provoke
auto-immune reactions as the body attempts to destroy its own infected cells.
There is no surprise that the incidence of auto-immune diseases (rheumatoid
arthritis, subacute lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, asthma, psoriasis)
has risen sharply in this era of multiple vaccine immunization.
Vaccine Induced Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
Dr. John Classen has published 29 articles on vaccine-induced diabetes.
At least 8 of 10 children with Type 1 (insulin needing) diabetes have this
disease as a result of vaccination. These children may have avoided measles,
mumps, and whooping cough but they have received something far worse: an illness
that shortens life expectancy by 10 to 15 years and results in a life requiring
constant medical care.
Dr. Classen has shown in Finland, the introduction of hemophilus type b vaccine
caused three times as many cases of type 1 diabetes as the number of deaths
and brain damage from hemophilus influenza type b it might have prevented.
In New Zealand, the incidence of Type 1 diabetes in children rose by 61 %
after an aggressive vaccine program against hepatitis B.. This same program
has been started in the U.S.A. so we can now look forward to many cases of
Type 1 diabetes in children. Similar rises in Type 1 diabetes have been seen
in England, Italy, Sweden, and Denmark after immunization programs against
Toxic Substances Are Needed To Make Vaccines
Vaccines contain many toxic substances that are needed to prevent the
vaccines from becoming infected or to improve the performance of the vaccine.
Among these substances are mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum.
In the past 10 years, the number of autistic children has risen from between
200 and 500 percent in every state in the U.S. This sharp rise in autism followed
the introduction of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine in 1975.
Representative Dan Burton's healthy grandson was given injections for 9 diseases
in one day. These injections were instantly followed by autism. These injections
contain a preservative of mercury called thimerosal. The boy received 41 times
the amount of mercury which is capable of harm to the body. Mercury is a neurotoxin
that can injure the brain and nervous system. And tragically, it did.
In the United States the number of compulsory vaccine injections has increased
from 10 to 36 in the last 25 years. During this period, there has been a simultaneous
increase in the number of children suffering learning disabilities and attention
deficit disorder. Some of these childhood disabilities are related to intrauterine
cerebral damage from maternal cocaine use, but probably vaccines cause many
of the others.
Many vaccines contain aluminum. A new disease called macrophagic myofasciitis
causes pain in muscles, bones and joints. All persons with this disease have
received aluminum containing vaccines. Deposits of aluminum are able to remain
as an irritant in tissues and disturb the immune and nervous system for a
Nearly all vaccines contain aluminum and mercury. These metals appear to
play an important role in the etiology of Alzheimer's Disease. An expert at
the 1997 International Vaccine Conference related that a person who takes
5 or more annual flu vaccine shots has increased the likelihood of developing
Alzheimer's Disease by a factor of 10 over the person who has had 2 or fewer
When we take vaccines we are playing a modern version of Russian Roulette.
We not only get exposed to aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde and foreign cell
proteins but we may get simian virus 40 and other dangerous viruses which
can cause cancer, leukemia and other severe health problems because the vaccine
pool is contaminated due to careless animal isolation techniques. Congress
has protected the manufacturers from lawsuits, so dangerous vaccines simply
increase profits at no risk to the drug companies.
U.S. children aged 2 months began receiving hepatitis B vaccine in December
2000.No peer-reviewed studies of the safety of hepatitis B in this age bracket
had been done. Over 36,000 adverse reactions with 440 deaths were soon reported
but the true incidence is much higher as reporting is voluntary so only approximately
10 % of adverse reactions get reported. This means that about 5000 infants
are dying annually from the hepatitis B vaccine. The CDC's Chief of Epidemiology
admits that the frequency of serious reactions to hepatitis B vaccine is 10
times higher than other vaccines. Hepatitis B is transmitted sexually and
by contaminated blood, so the incidence of this disease must be near zero
in this age bracket. A vaccine expert, Dr. Philip Incao, states that "the
conclusion is obvious that the risks of hepatitis B vaccination far outweigh
the benefits. Once a vaccine is mandated the vaccine manufacturer is no longer
liable for adverse reactions.
Dr. W.B. Clarke's important observation that cancer was not found in unvaccinated
individuals demands an explanation and one now appears forthcoming. All vaccines
given over a short period of time to an immature immune system deplete the
thymus gland (the primary gland involved in immune reactions) of irreplaceable
immature immune cells. Each of these cells could have multiplied and developed
into an army of valuable cells to combat infection and growth of abnormal
cells. When these immune cells have been used up, permanent immunity may not
appear. The Arthur Research Foundation in Tucson, Arizona estimates that up
to 60 % of our immune system may be exhausted by multiple mass vaccines
(36 are now required for children). Only 10 % of immune cells are permanently
lost when a child is permitted to develop natural immunity from disease. There
needs to be grave concern about these immune system injuring vaccinations!
Could the persons who approve these mass vaccinations know that they are impairing
the health of these children, many of whom are being doomed to requiring much
medical care in the future?
Compelling evidence is available that the development of the immune system
after contracting the usual childhood diseases matures and renders it capable
to fight infection and malignant cells in the future.
The use of multiple vaccines, which prevents natural immunity, promotes the
development of allergies and asthma. A New Zealand study disclosed that 23
% of vaccinated children develop asthma , as compared to zero in unvaccinated
Cancer was a very rare illness in the 1890's. This evidence about immune
system injury from vaccinating affords a plausible explanation for Dr. Clarke's
finding that only vaccinated individuals got cancer. Some radical adverse
change in health occurred in the early 1900s to permit cancer to explode and
vaccinating appears to be the reason.
Vaccines are an unnatural phenomena. My guess is that if enough persons said
no to immunizations there would be a striking improvement in general health
with nature back in the immunizing business instead of man. Having a child
vaccinated should be a choice not a requirement. Medical and religious exemptions
are permitted by most states.
When governmental policies require vaccinations before children enter schools
coercion has overruled the lack of evidence of vaccine efficacy and safety.
There is no proof that vaccines work and they are never studied for safety
before release. My opinion is that there is overwhelming evidence that vaccines
are dangerous and the only reason for their existence is to increase profits
of pharmaceutical firms.
If you are forced to immunize your children so they can enter school, obtain
a notarized statement from the director of the facility that they will accept
full financial responsibility for any adverse reaction from the vaccine. Since
there is at least a 2 percent risk of a serious adverse reaction they may
be smart enough to permit your child to escape a dangerous procedure. Recent
legislation passed by Congress gives the government the power to imprison
persons refusing to take vaccines (smallpox, anthrax, etc). This would be
troublesome to enforce if large numbers of citizens declined to be vaccinated
at the same time.
