Vaccinations-Chapter 19

Don’t vaccinations prevent disease? Aren’t they safe and effective?
Health authorities credit vaccines for disease declines, and assure us
of their safety and effectiveness. Yet these assumptions are directly
contradicted by government statistics, published medical studies,
FDA and CDC reports, and the opinions of credible research
scientists from around the world. There are hundreds of published
medical studies documenting vaccine failure and adverse effects, and
dozens of books written by doctors, researchers, and independent
investigators that reveal serious flaws in immunization theory and
Vaccinations are safe, effective, and are based on sound
scientific studies and evidence, are responsible for the
decrease in many infectious diseases.
Vaccinations are based on flawed science and
fraudulent data. They cause disease, disability, and even
death. Hygiene and sanitation, not vaccinations, have
resulted in the decrease of nearly every infectious
disease over the past century.
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
practice. Ironically, most pediatricians and parents are completely
unaware of these findings.
I am well aware that vaccinations are considered “sacred” to most
conventional doctors. As a matter of fact, questioning them is
tantamount to blasphemy. I can assure you that I would not
challenge the efficacy and safety of something as “holy” as
vaccinations unless I were certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that
I am accurate when I state that vaccinations are not safe and they
are not effective in preventing the spread of disease.
Over the past century, as the cornerstone of public health policy,
vaccinations have caused, not prevented the spread of disease. If
you are able to look at this subject with “objective spectacles,” you
will easily be able to see that mass vaccinations are linked to global
epidemics of neurological and behavioral problems as well as worldwide
proliferation of autoimmune diseases. However, chances are
that you will likely dismiss me as a “quack” or “idiot,” put your head
back into the sand, and take your kiddos back to the doctor for more
poison injections.
Most of the people in the U.S. will do whatever they are told. We
are encouraged not to think for ourselves. We are programmed to
place blind faith in our physician and the Medical Establishment.
We are taught not to ask questions. The sad fact is that most
Americans simply believe in vaccinations, although it is likely that
they have no idea what is in them. Decades of studies published in
the world’s leading medical journals have documented serious
adverse effects from vaccinations, including death. Dozens of books
written by doctors and researchers have revealed serious flaws in
immunization practice and theory. Yet, incredibly, most
pediatricians and parents are unaware of these findings. Believe it or
not, most pediatricians don’t even know what’s in the vaccinations
they are administering. Don’t believe me? Just ask them…and be
prepared to see a perplexed look on their face…right before they get
mad at you for daring to ask questions or threaten you if you don’t
submit to their policy of mandatory vaccinations!
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
For example, when our daughter, Brianna, was about 18 months old,
we took her to the doctor’s office for a checkup. The doctor told us
that it was time for her vaccinations, among them the MMR
vaccination. We had been doing a little research on vaccinations and
were a bit concerned that they may not be quite as safe as they are
reported to be. So, we told the doctor that we were concerned and
did not want Brianna to be vaccinated, thinking that he would
honor our wishes. His response was staggering. “If you choose not to
have her vaccinated, then she can no longer be a part of our practice
here. You will have to go elsewhere. We are not buying into or
promoting all that hype (on autism). Vaccinations do not cause
autism. Eating kids’ fish sticks is more of a risk at causing autism
than these vaccinations.” What arrogance! Well, we should have
walked out of his office immediately, but like thousands of other
parents, we caved to the pressure and allowed that doctor to inject
our little girl with poison.
That’s right…poison! I have heard vaccinations described as “toxic
cocktails“ of the most toxic substances on earth. They are combined
with live and dead animal viruses that have been cultured in
monkey kidney tissue, cow tissue, goat tissue, pig tissue, and even
aborted human fetuses. They contain any combination of the
following: thimerosal (ethyl mercury), aluminum, formaldehyde
(carcinogenic embalming fluid), phenol, ethylene glycol (antifreeze),
live viruses, bacteria, and acetone, among other things. According to
Professor Boyd Haley, University of Kentucky Chair & Head of
Chemistry, “You couldn’t even construct a study that shows
thimerosal is safe. It’s just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal
into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue,
the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies.
Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could
inject it into an infant without causing damage.”
What if I were to take some mercury, formaldehyde, aluminum,
antifreeze, and live viruses cultured in dead animal tissue, then mix
them together with some peanut butter and spread it on a piece of
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
bread for my kiddos to eat for a snack? Would you think I was a
good parent? What if I were to state, “This will keep them from
getting sick”? Would you question my sanity? The odds are that I
would likely be arrested for child abuse. However, when doctors
inject our kiddos with the same ingredients (less the peanut butter)
and tell us “This will keep them from getting sick,” most of us don’t
even give it a second thought.
What if you call your physician and tell him that you are going to
inject your baby with mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde, and
that you are wondering what the “safe dosage” was for these
ingredients? Well, right after he calls Child Protective Services, he
will probably call the police! You see, there is no safe dosage because
these are all potentially carcinogenic substances. But mercury
derivatives, aluminum, and formaldehyde are ingredients in most
vaccinations. How is it possible that they are safe? The answer
depends upon who is injecting them. If you or I inject our child with
mercury or formaldehyde, we are going to jail. But if a drug
company and a doctor inject the same toxic poisons, then they are
perfectly safe. What’s wrong with this picture? Unfortunately, most
Americans follow the masses, believe what we’re told, don’t ask
questions, and place blind faith in our doctors. But where do doctors
get their medical training? That’s right…in medical school.
Medical schools, which are largely subsidized by Big Pharma,
brainwash students into believing that vaccinations are safe and
prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Not surprisingly, there is a
huge financial incentive for Big Pharma to “peddle” vaccinations, as
they make a fortune on the sale of these toxic cocktails. Once these
medical students graduate and become physicians, they are offered
large “commissions” to sell more vaccinations to patients and
continue their blind faith in the necessity of these poisons. Then,
most people acquiesce to the poisoning of their kiddos because they
simply cannot believe…they refuse to believe…that their
“omniscient” physician could possibly be wrong. The no way factor
takes over. So, what we have is blind faith in doctors, who have
blind faith in what they learned in medical school, which are
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
governed by the AMA, which is “in bed” with Big Pharma, which is
interested in shareholder profits, not in the safety of our children.
England’s Edward Jenner, born in 1749, is credited with being the
“Father of Vaccines.” He believed the superstition among the
dairymaids that a person who had suffered cowpox could not
contract smallpox. In 1786, for his initial “human guinea pig” test,
Jenner scraped pus from the lesions from a dairymaid and injected
this pus into James Phipps, an 8 year old boy. A short time
afterwards, he inoculated the boy with small-pox, and the small-pox
did not take. Jenner believed that he had found the cure to
smallpox. Over the next 12 years, Phipps was inoculated about 20
times and eventually died of tuberculosis at the age of 20. Jenner’s
own son also served as one of his guinea pigs and also died of
tuberculosis at the age of 21. Since that time, researchers have
linked tuberculosis to the smallpox vaccine. (Eleanor McBean, The
Poisoned Needle).
Over the next few years, Jenner gathered the “proof” that his
smallpox vaccine worked, and then he presented it to Parliament.
He was sure to report only the data which supported his theory, and
to never mention the multitudes of people who would disprove his
theory (i.e. those people who contracted cowpox and then
contracted smallpox afterwards). He was careful to mention only the
cases of a dozen old men who had cowpox and did not contract
smallpox afterwards, while conveniently omitting the hundreds of
cases who had had both. Eventually, after years of manipulating data
and “tweaking” his smallpox vaccination formula, he “sold” his
theory of vaccinations to the intellectual elite and governmental
officials alike.
Despite Jenner’s efforts, widespread vaccination did not really catch
on. As of 1807, only 1.5% of the Brits had been vaccinated. Up until
1823, the year that Jenner died, there were only regional outbreaks
of smallpox in England, nothing that would be considered an
epidemic. For the next 30 years, smallpox was under control.
However, vaccinations became mandatory in England in 1853, and
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
by 1857, fines and imprisonment awaited people who refused to be
vaccinated against smallpox.
Once smallpox vaccination became mandatory in England, massive
epidemics began to occur. Between 1857 and 1859, there were over
14,000 deaths from smallpox. Then, between 1863 and 1865, there
were over 20,000 smallpox deaths. A few years later, there were
almost 45,000 smallpox deaths between 1870 and 1872. According to
official estimates, 97% of the population had been vaccinated (Anne
Riley Hale, The Medical VooDoo). Japan introduced compulsory
vaccinations in 1872. In 1892 there were 165,774 cases of smallpox
with 29,979 deaths despite the vaccination program. Bottom line:
the smallpox vaccine does not work.
What about polio? Didn’t the polio vaccine save millions? The
population of New York in 1950 was 15 million, and at that time,
there were 13 polio cases and 1 polio death per 100,000 population.
Hardly an epidemic! But based solely on the scant evidence of a
polio “epidemic,” Dr. Jonas Salk convinced the federal government
to inoculate 97% of the American population with a culture grown
in dead green monkeys. As the Salk vaccine program expanded,
cases of paralytic polio began to increase. In 1959, more than 5,000
paralytic polio cases occurred-50% more than in 1958, and 100%
more than in 1957. This trend developed in spite of 300,000,000
doses of Salk vaccine administered in the U.S. by the end of 1959.
Six New England states reported increases in polio one year after the
Salk vaccine was introduced, ranging from Vermont’s 100% increase
to Massachusetts’ astounding increase of 642%. During 1962, U.S.
Congressional hearings, Dr. Bernard Greenberg, head of the
Department of Biostatistics for the University of North Carolina
School of Public Health, testified that not only did the cases of polio
increase substantially after mandatory vaccinations, but that the
statistics were manipulated by the Public Health Service to give the
opposite impression. [Hearings before the Committee on Interstate
and Foreign Commerce, House of Representatives, 87th Congress,
Second Session on H.R. 10541, May 1962, p.94].
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Almost 20 years after the first polio inoculations, in 1977, Salk
testified before a Senate subcommittee that all polio outbreaks since
1961 were caused by the oral polio vaccine. In 1985, the CDC
reported that 87% of the cases of polio in the U.S. between 1973 and
1983 were caused by the vaccine and most of the reported cases
occurred in fully immunized individuals. Alarmingly, the CDC has
admitted that the polio vaccine is the only known cause of polio in
the U.S. today.
Remember I mentioned that the polio vaccine was initially cultured
in dead green monkeys and was contaminated with SV-40 (from
1959 to 1965)? It turns out that SV-40 can be passed horizontally
(i.e. between father and mother) and vertically (i.e. between mother
and child). In fact, SV-40 is often associated with medulloblastoma,
the most prevalent pediatric brain tumor. When scientists injected
young hamsters with SV-40, over 80% developed brain cancers.
Traces of this virus are commonly found in brain cancers among the
millions of people who received polio vaccines contaminated with
SV-40. In 1979, Doctors J. Farwell, G. Dohrmann, L. Marrett, and J.
W. Meigs wrote a paper entitled: “Effect of SV40 Virus-
Contaminated Polio Vaccine on the Incidence and Type of CNS
Neoplasms in Children: A Population-Based Study,” in which they
found a substantial increase in childhood brain tumors, especially
medulloblastoma, when the mothers had been inoculated with
vaccines containing SV-40.
Vaccinations and Autism. Congressman Dan Burton of Indiana
began holding hearings on the relationship between childhood
vaccines and autism in the fall of 2001. His grandson became autistic
after receiving 49 times the amount of mercury considered safe by
the EPA during a visit to his pediatrician who gave him nine
vaccines at once. During these hearings, parent after parent told
very similar stories. They told of how their normally developing
babies had suddenly reversed their development soon after the
MMR vaccination or the DPT vaccination. The children spiraled
downward into the “vegetable-like” existence of autistic behavior, in
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
which previously happy, bright children suddenly can no longer
learn or communicate, or recognize their parents.
Astonishing testimony was given by experts in the field of autism.
For instance, Dr. Michael Goldberg, M.D., explained how it was
impossible to have an epidemic based solely on genetics. That’s the
standard excuse the CDC and the NIH have been using to explain
how autism has literally exploded in just over 2 decades. Dr. Mary
Megson, M.D., explained how autism has gone from being an
unknown in 1978 (with an incidence of 1 in 10,000) to an epidemic
in 2000 (with an incidence of 1 in 166). Her research has shown
total deficiency of vitamin A in almost all autistic children. Can you
guess what depletes the body of vitamin A? You got it…the MMR
vaccination. Amazingly, Big Medicine still insists that there is no
connection between toxic mercury preservatives in mandated
childhood vaccinations and the astounding increase in autism,
despite ample scientific evidence to the contrary.
Dr. John O’Leary, PhD, a world class researcher and molecular
biologist from Ireland, using state of the art sequencing technology,
showed how he had found measles virus in the gut of 96% of autistic
children, compared to 6.6% of normal children. Interestingly, this
virus did not come from the natural disease; it came from the
measles vaccine. Finally, Dr. V. Singh, M.D., an autism specialist
from Utah, found that in over 400 cases of autism, the children had
experienced an autoimmune episode, in which their own body has
been made to attack the lining of the nervous system. He stated that
55% of the families said that autism appeared soon after the MMR
vaccination and that 33% of families said it appeared soon after the
DPT vaccination. Such neurologic damage is a well-established side
effect of the mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde used in these
Interestingly, on November 26, 2005, the President George W. Bush
administration asked a federal claims court to seal documents
relating to hundreds of cases of autism allegedly caused by
thimerosal, one of the toxic ingredients used in many childhood
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
vaccines. The government’s legal action comes on the heels of an
insertion into the Homeland Security bill that protects Eli Lilly, the
drug company giant that developed thimerosal, from lawsuits
involving the additive. The bill removes all liability from the
pharmaceutical industry and health officials for the injuries and
death resulting from the preservative. This is sickening! Yet another
instance of Big Pharma and governmental corruption.
More on Vaccinations. Dr. Archie Kalokerinos was a physician who
began routinely vaccinating aboriginal children in Australia during
the late 1960s. Shortly after he began vaccinations, he noticed that
extremely high numbers of these children became very ill or died.
He also noticed that children who were sick at the time of
vaccination were more likely to experience adverse reactions. In his
book Every Second Child, Dr. Kalokerinos also noted that children
experiencing adverse reactions would recover after receiving large
doses of vitamin C and the numbers of children who suffered
adverse reactions declined dramatically when only healthy children
who had taken large doses of vitamin C received vaccinations.
“One would have expected, of course, that the authorities would
take an interest in these observations that resulted in a dramatic
drop in the death rate of infants in the area under my control. But
instead of taking an interest, their reaction was one of extreme
hostility. This forced me to look into the question of vaccination
further and the further I looked the more shocked I became. I found
that the whole vaccine business was a hoax. Most doctors are
convinced that they are useful, but if you look at the proper statistics
and study the instance of these diseases you will realize that this is
not so.” - Interview of Dr. Archie Kalokerinos in The International
Vaccination Newsletter, June 1995.
One study found that 3,000 children die within 4 days of vaccination
each year in America. Another researcher’s studies concluded that
half of American SIDS cases (between 2,500 and 5,000 infant deaths
annually) are caused by vaccinations. (Viera Scheibner, Ph.D.,
Vaccination: 100 Years of Orthodox Research Shows that Vaccines
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Represent a Medical Assault on the Immune System). It is amazing
how much medical literature that exists which documents the
failure of vaccinations. In 1989, the Center for Disease Control
(CDC) reported, “Among school-aged children, [measles] outbreaks
have occurred in schools with vaccination levels of greater than 98
percent. [Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), 38 (8-
9), 12/29/89] The CDC even reported a measles outbreak in a
documented 100% vaccinated population. [MMWR, 33(24),
Vaccinations and Chemotherapy. The parallels between childhood
vaccines and chemotherapy are astonishing but not surprising given
that it’s the same industry and the same manufacturers who are
responsible for both.
􀂾 Both vaccines and chemotherapy are shown to be “effective”
by scientists whom the manufacturer is paying.
􀂾 Both have resulted in injury and death.
􀂾 Both are extremely profitable.
􀂾 Both are considered sacred and won’t be seriously
􀂾 Both represent a paradigm that the body can only be healed
or made whole by the use of dangerous extrinsic chemicals.
I know we are all brought up to blindly trust our doctors. But the
fact is that they no longer deserve that kind of blind trust.
Physicians take an oath to “First, do no harm,” but today, what gets
injected into your child is being decided not by physicians but by
Big Pharma which has a financial incentive to inject as many
vaccinations as possible. Only by keeping people in the dark can Big
Pharma continue its absurd profiteering from the vaccination
industry. We assume that because vaccinations are mandated by U.S.
law that the government is verifying to their safety and
effectiveness. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Every day, millions of children are lined up and injected with toxic,
putrid substances called vaccinations. Before they begin first grade,
children can get as many as 36 vaccinations! There are about 200
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
more vaccinations in the pipeline. Scenarios for the future even
include consuming vaccines in nose sprays, ointments and fruits and
vegetables. This “Vaccination Obsession” has gone beyond what
anyone can possibly defend on scientific grounds. Pumping more
vaccinations into our precious kiddos borders on the criminal.
With every child on the planet a potential “required recipient” of
multiple vaccinations, and with every healthcare system and
government a potential buyer, it is little wonder that billions of
dollars are spent nurturing the vaccination industry. Without public
outcry, we will see more and more new vaccines required of us and
our children. And while profits are readily calculable, the real
human costs are being ignored. According to Dr. James R. Shannon,
former director of the National Institute of Health reported in
December, 2003 that “the only safe vaccine is one that is never
Remember, vaccinations are mandated but the are not mandatory!
There are three exemption possibilities in the United States:
􀂾 Medical Exemption – all 50 states allow for a medical
􀂾 Religious Exemption – nearly all states allow for a religious
􀂾 Philosophical or Personal Exemption – an increasing number
of states allow this exemption.
In the December 1994 Medical Post, Canadian author of the bestseller
Medical Mafia, Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, M.D. stated, “The
medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on
the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are
actually changing our genetic code through vaccination...10 years
from now we will know that the biggest crime against humanity was
Well, it is now 2007, over 13 years since Dr. Lanctot made this
statement, and I will let you decide if she was correct…
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Email Exchange with a Pediatrician
After I published the first edition of this book in August 2006, I had
an interesting email discussion with a pediatrician regarding
vaccinations, specifically the DPT. He accused me of being
“irresponsible” for claiming that vaccinations are poison to our
children. Below is the entire email thread…
Pediatrician: On an emotional level, I just have to add that it only
takes seeing one unimmunized child die of pertussis (whooping
cough) to make one question those who decry immunizations and
claim we are “poisoning our children with vaccinations.”
My response: Over 11,000 annual cases of adverse reactions to
vaccinations are reported to the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Effects
Reporting System), a branch of the FDA, of which 1% result in
death. (National Technical Information Service - Springfield, VA -
703.487.4650). The lion’s share (over 100 per year) of deaths are
attributed to reactions to the pertussis vaccine (the “P” in DPT).
It is unknown exactly how many deaths have occurred from the
pertussis vaccine, because doctors underreport all vaccine adverse
events. In New York state, for example, the National Vaccine
Information Center (NVIC) recently found that only one out of 40
doctor’s offices (2.5%) confirmed that they report a death or injury
following vaccination. (National Vaccine Information Center
(NVIC), 512 Maple Ave. W. #206, Vienna, VA 22180, 703-938-0342;
"Investigative Report on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting
The truth is that the number of vaccine-related deaths dwarfs the
number of deaths caused by the disease, which have averaged
around 10 annually for the past 2 decades, according to the CDC. As
the FDA estimates that only approximately 10% of adverse reactions
are reported, we can estimate that the chances of dying from the
pertussis vaccine are 100 times greater than the chances of dying
from pertussis itself.
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Simply put, the vaccine is 100 times more deadly than the disease.
Given the many instances in which highly vaccinated populations
have contracted pertussis and the fact that the disease was on the
decline well before mandatory vaccinations (pertussis deaths
declined 79% prior to vaccines), the enormous number of vaccine
casualties can hardly be considered a necessary sacrifice for the
benefit of a disease-free society.
In the U.S. in 1986, 90% of 1300 pertussis cases in Kansas were
“adequately vaccinated.” (Neil Miller, Vaccines: Are They Safe and
Effective? p 33.) In 1993, 72% of pertussis cases in the Chicago
outbreak were fully up to date with their vaccinations. (Chicago
Dept. of Health).
Sadly, the vaccine-related-deaths story doesn’t end here. Both
national and international studies have shown vaccination to be a
cause of SIDS (Viera Scheibner, Ph.D., “Vaccination: 100 Years of
Orthodox Research Shows that Vaccines Represent a Medical
Assault on the Immune System” and W.C. Torch, "Diptheriapertussis-
tetanus (DPT) immunization: A potential cause of the
sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS),” (Amer. Adacemy of
Neurology, 34th Annual Meeting, Apr 25 - May 1, 1982), Neurology
32(4), pt. 2). The Torch study found the peak incidence of SIDS
occurred at the ages of 2 and 4 months in the United States, precisely
when the first two routine immunizations are given. It also found
that 3,000 children die within 4 days of vaccination each year, and
concluded that half of SIDS cases (approximately 2,500 to 5,000
infant deaths in the United States per year) are caused by vaccines.
Interestingly, on November 26, 2005, the Bush administration asked
a federal claims court to seal documents relating to hundreds of cases
of autism allegedly caused by thimerosal, one of the toxic
ingredients used in many childhood vaccines. The government’s
legal action comes on the heels of an insertion into the Homeland
Security bill that protects Eli Lilly, the drug company giant that
developed thimerosal, from lawsuits involving the additive. The bill
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
removes all liability from the pharmaceutical industry and health
officials for the injuries and death resulting from the preservative.
This is sickening! Yet another instance of Big Pharma and
governmental corruption.
Pediatrician: You point out that there are only 10 deaths from
pertussis each year. I wonder why that is. In 1934 there were around
8000 deaths attributed to pertussis in the US. The pertussis vaccine
was developed around that time and became used wide-spread about
20 years later. So the 10 deaths each year from pertussis is actually a
vaccine success story.
My response: It is common knowledge that whooping cough, like
measles, scarlet fever and diphtheria, is a very much less severe
disease than in times past, and it is the generally accepted idea in the
medical community that vaccination has been mainly responsible
for this. In fact nothing could he further from the truth. Scarlet
fever declined dramatically in both morbidity and mortality without
vaccination and for the most part prior to the advent of antibiotics.
Measles declined in a similar fashion prior to the introduction of
vaccination and, since it is a “viral disease,” it is not affected by
antibiotics. Diphtheria also declined prior to the advent of
immunization. As I mentioned in an earlier email, whooping cough
also had declined by 79% BEFORE immunizations.
The evidence indicates that the decline in severity in these diseases
was due to improved sanitation, better nutrition, better housing, and
improved hygiene rather than to any specific immunizations. The
truth be told, England actually saw a drop in pertussis deaths when
vaccination rates dropped from 80% to 30% in the mid 1970s.
Swedish epidemiologist B. Trollfors’ study of pertussis vaccine
efficacy and toxicity around the world found that “..pertussisassociated
mortality is currently very low in industrialized countries
and no difference can be discerned when countries with high, low
and zero immunization rates were compared.” He also found that
England, Wales, and West Germany had more pertussis fatalities in
1970 when the immunization rate was high, than during the last
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
half of 1980 when rates had fallen. I know you don’t like statistics
from 20 or 30 years ago, but facts do not change. The truth does not
change. The laws of physics do not change.
Pediatrician: Just for full disclosure, you might want to point out
that the National Vaccine Information Center, the group that put
out the paper you quote, is an anti-vaccination organization.
They’ve got a nice link to “lawyer referral" on their website.
My response: What difference does that make? Should I ask you to
point out that the groups that you cite are pro-vaccination groups?
C’mon, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Let’s just be
realisitic and admit that much of the literature which I cite is from
groups that oppose vaccinations, while much of the studies which
you will cite are from pro-vaccination groups. The trick is to find
out who (if anyone) is manipulating the data, and why….$$$...
Pediatrician: Why are the papers you're quoting from the early 80s?
I've not read them, but that's an eternity in medical literature.
Surely you have some newer data (last 5 years) to support these
claims. Right?
My response: As I mentioned earlier, the truth does not change.
Have the laws of physics changed over the past 2 decades? If so, I
wasn’t aware of it. And the papers I quoted were just examples of
pertussis epedimics that broke out in vaccinated populations, thus
demonstrating that the DPT is not near as effective as Big Medicine
would have us to believe. The dates are what they are…
If I wanted to demonstrate that the Nazi party committed genocide,
then I would refer you to the German death camps of the 1940s. I
doubt that you would ask for newer data, rejecting the fact that
millions of Jews were murdered by Nazis, since, after all, it did
happen over 60 years ago….an “eternity in medical literature”….
But since you asked…the New England Journal of Medicine
documents that the pertussis epidemic in Cincinnatti (1993) was in a
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
fully vaccinated population. The authors assert that that the
proportion of cases in fully vaccinated children provides evidence of
“the failure of the whole-cell pertussis vaccine.” (NEJM, Volume
331:1455-1456, 11/24/94, No. 21) The CDC’s own website indicates
that a sudden increase in cases reflecting a pertussis outbreak in the
Netherlands in 1996 could not be explained by a decrease in
vaccination coverage, which remained stable at 96% for at least
three vaccinations in the first year of life.
I could list many more studies conducted within the last decade, but
you get my point…Right?
Pediatrician: The autism question: The Cochrane database did a
systematic review (very statistically- powerful paper that combines
the results of many studies over a long period of time) this year
looking at MMR and autism. They reviewed 139 studies and found
no link.
My response: The Cochrane Study is oftentimes cited in an effort to
support vaccinations (specifically the MMR), show that there is no
link to autism, demonstate that the anti-vaccination wackos’ fears
are unfounded, and give the MMR the “all’s clear ahead.” But this is
a load of balogna. Most of these people should start by reading the
actual study rather than regurgitating the press release. The study
didn’t say anything like this at all. The press release said: “There was
no credible evidence behind claims of harm from the MMR
vaccination.” But the study did not say that. What the stucy did say
(but was not mentioned in the press release) was: “The design and
reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies … are largely
inadequate .” The study also stated: “We found only limited evidence
of the safety of MMR compared to its single component vaccines.”
In other words, far from saying MMR was safe, the study said
explicitly that the evidence for its safety was not good enough. Now,
I’m not saying that the study didn’t say that the evidence it looked at
did not support any association between MMR and autism. It did say
Chapter 19 – Vaccinations Cancer – Step Outside the Box
that. But that does not equate to stating that the MMR is safe. It
means that the study did not find anything to suggest that it was not
safe. Kind of like in a trial when you find a person “not
guilty”…rather than “innocent.”
What was the reason that they said the evidence didn't support a
link between the MMR and autism? Well, you know that
epidemiological studies are intrinsically unlikely to reveal the truth
about the effects of MMR. Here’s why: they rely on medical records.
But the fact is that most doctors quickly dismiss parents’ concerns
about autism (I know first hand about this), thus they never enter
anything out of the ordinary on their medical records.
And the authors of the Cochrane Study were far from
“independent.” Did you know that Dr. Tom Jefferson, MD, one of
the Cochrane study’s authors, acknowledged that in 1999, he acted
as a consultant for a legal team advising the MMR vaccine
manufacturers? Can anyone say “Conflict of Interest”? And this is
not the only instance of the “incest factor.” A number of
epidemiological studies which the FDA has used to state that MMR
is safe have been written by researchers with links to Big Pharma
Remarkably, the Cochran Study concluded that the safety studies
into MMR were so poor that “the safety record of MMR is probably
best attested by almost universal use.” In other words, because the
vaccine is so widely used, it must be safe. Talk about circular
reasoning!! This is a dangerous and extremely unscientific
Pediatrician: The most damning piece of evidence for the autism-
MMR question is the fact that the vaccine companies completely
removed the traces of mercury from the vaccine in 1999, yet the
rates of autism continue to rise. Why autism is increasing is an
interesting question, but the answer is not in vaccines.

My response: This is not true. In 2004, after much public
controversy surrounding the mercury content of childhood
vaccinations, Health Advocacy in the Public Interest (HAPI) tested 4
vaccines for heavy metal content. The vials were sent to Doctor’s
Data, an independent lab which specializes in heavy metal testing.
Many manufacturers voluntarily began producing supposed
“mercury free” vaccines in 1999. Some product inserts currently
claim that a “trace” amount of mercury still exists in the final
product but that the amount has been greatly reduced. Others claim
to be producing completely mercury free products.
During an investigation into the mercury issue, HAPI learned that
Thimerosal, a 50% mercury compound, is still being used to produce
most vaccines and that the manufacturers are simply “filtering it
out” of the final product. However, according to Boyd Haley, PhD,
Chemistry Department Chair, University of Kentucky, mercury
binds to the antigenic protein in the vaccine and cannot be
completely, 100% filtered out.
All 4 vaccine vials tested contained mercury despite manufacturer
claims that two of the vials were completely mercury free. All four
vials also contained aluminum (one had 9 times more than the other
3), which tremendously enhances the toxicity of mercury causing
neuronal death in the brain. www.whale.to/a/mercury7.html
