"My suspicion, which is shared by others in my profession, is that the nearly 10,000 SIDS deaths that occur in the United States each year are related to one or more of the vaccines that are routinely given children. The pertussis vaccine is the most likely villain, but it could also be one or more of the others." --Dr. Mendelsohn, M.D."The evidence for indicting immunisations for SIDS is circumstantial, but compelling. However, the keepers of the keys to medical-research funds are not interested in researching this very important lead to the cause of an ongoing, and possibly preventable, tragedy. Anything that implies that immunisations are not the greatest medical advance in the history of public health is ignored or ridiculed. Can you imagine the economic and political import of discovering that immunisations are killing thousands of babies?" --Dr. Douglass M.D."Only after realising that routine immunisations were dangerous did I achieve a substantial drop in infant death rates. The worst vaccine of all is the whooping cough vaccine... it is responsible for a lot of deaths and for a lot of infants suffering irreversible brain damage. In susceptible infants, it knocks their immune systems about, leading to irreparable brain damage, or severe attacks or even deaths from diseases like pneumonia or gastro-enteritis and so on." --Dr. Kalokerinos, M.D."Delay of DPT immunisation until 2 years of age in Japan has resulted in a dramatic decline in adverse side effects. In the period of 1970-1974, when DPT vaccination was begun at 3 to 5 months of age, the Japanese national compensation system paid out claims for 57 permanent severe damage vaccine cases, and 37 deaths. During the ensuing six year period 1975-1980, when DPT injections were delayed to 24 months of age, severe reactions from the vaccine were reduced to a total of eight with three deaths. This represents an 85 to 90 percent reduction in severe cases of damage and death." --Raymond Obomsawin, M.D."Autism may be a disorder linked to the disruption of the G-alpha protein, affecting retinoid receptors in the brain. A study of sixty autistic children suggests that autism may be caused by inserting a G-alpha protein defect, the pertussis toxin found in the D.P.T. vaccine, into genetically at-risk children." --Mary N. Megson, M.D."This report describes six mothers who received live virus vaccines and one who received a Hepatitis B vaccine during pregnancy after having received an MMR booster five months prior to conception. All the children who resulted from these pregnancies have had developmental problems, six out seven (85%) were diagnosed with autism, and the seventh seems to exhibit symptoms often associated with autistic spectrum disorders." --F. EdwardYazbak, MD"Every day new parents are ringing us. They all have the same tragic story. Healthy baby, child, teenager, usually a boy, given the DPT (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus) or DT (diphtheria and tetanus), MMR or MMR booster followed by a sudden fall or slow, but steady decline into autism or other spectrums disorder."--The Hope Project (Ireland)"There is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious side effects." -- Dr. Viera Scheibner"My data proves that the studies used to support immunisation are so flawed that it is impossible to say if immunisation provides a net benefit to anyone or to society in general. This question can only be determined by proper studies which have never been performed. The flaw of previous studies is that there was no long term follow up and chronic toxicity was not looked at. The American Society of Microbiology has promoted my research...and thus acknowledges the need for proper studies." --John B.Classen, M.D., M.B.A."The medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are changing our genetic code through vaccination." --Guylaine Lanctot M.D. Canadian author of the best-seller 'Medical Mafia'.Jonas Salk, inventor of the IPV, testified before a Senate subcommittee that nearly all polio outbreaks since 1961 were caused by the oral polio vaccine."Crib death" was so infrequent in the pre-vaccination era that it was not even mentioned in the statistics, but it started to climb in the 1950s with the spread of mass vaccination against diseases of childhood. --Harris L.Coulter, PhD."These data show that DPT vaccination may be a generally unrecognised major cause of sudden infant and early childhood death, and that the risks of immunisation may outweigh its potential benefits. A need for re-evaluation and possible modification of current vaccination procedures is indicated by this study." --William C. Torch, M.D., Director of Child Neurology, Department of Paediatrics, University of Nevada School of Medicine"You cannot be in the presence of a profoundly vaccine damaged child and not know that child could be your own. And you cannot try to comfort a mother who has just buried a baby who has died from a vaccine or a disease and not know that you could be the one standing over the grave. When it happens to your child, the risks are 100 percent." -Anonymous"Vaccination is not necessary, not useful, does not protect. There are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS." --Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, West Germany, specialist of internal diseases and participant in about 150 trials of vaccination victims.Dr. Michael Odent has written a letter in the JAMA (1994) where his figures show a five times higher rate of asthma in pertussis immunised children compared to non-immunised children. He is also quoted in the International Vaccination Newsletter (Sept. 1994): "Immunised children have more ear infections and spend more days in hospital.""The public is surely entitled to convincing proof, beyond all reasonable doubt, that artificial immunisation is in fact a safe and effective procedure, in no way injurious to health, and that the threat of the corresponding natural diseases remain sufficiently clear and urgent to warrant mass inoculation of everyone, even against their will if necessary. Unfortunately, such proof has never been given." --Richard Moskowitz, M.D., Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy, March 1983 (76:7)"Vaccination is expensive and represents a cost of one billion dollars annually. It therefore benefits the industry; most notably, the multinational manufacturers. One sells the vaccines. The other then provides the arsenal of medications to respond to the numerous complications that follow. Their profits increase while our expenses go through the roof. To the point where we have simply had it up to here and are ready to accept the unacceptable, such as socialised medicine in the United States, for example." --Dr Lanctot MDIn the May 24, 1996, New Zealand Medical Journal, J. Barthelow Classen, MD, a former researcher at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the founder and CEO of Classen Immunotherapies in Baltimore, reported that juvenile diabetes increased 60 per cent following a massive hepatitis B vaccination campaign for babies six weeks or older in New Zealand from 1988 to 1991. In the October 22, 1997, Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice, Classen showed that Finland's incidence of diabetes increased 147 per cent in children under five after three new vaccines were introduced in the 1970s, and that diabetes increased 40 per cent in children aged 5 to 9 after the addition of the MMR and Hib vaccines in the 1980s. He concluded that "the rise in IDDM [juvenile onset diabetes] in the different age groups correlated with the number of vaccines given."Yet some parents and doctors, concerned about the future, are looking beyond the present. "What we forget is that millions of years of evolution have taken place on this planet, and up until the last 100 years, humans have lived in relative harmony with microbes. Yes, there have been epidemic infectious diseases in history, but they have always resolved themselves. I don't think there is any real appreciation for what we may be doing by using so many vaccines to try to eradicate so many organisms. If we stay the present course, will mankind be free from infectious disease but crippled by chronic disease? Will eradication of feared diseases, such as AIDS, through mass vaccination be one of man's greatest triumphs or will we live in fear of deadly mutations of microbes that have outsmarted man's attempt to eradicate them? We may look back at the crossroads we are at today and wish we had decided to make peace with nature instead of trying to dominate it." --Richard Moscowitz, MD"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 indeed a gigantic hoax. Most doctors are convinced that they are useful, but if you look at the proper statistics and study the instances of these diseases you will realise that this is not so . . . My final conclusion after forty years or more in this business [medicine] is that the unofficial policy of the World Health Organisation and the unofficial policy of the 'Save the Children's Fund' and ... [other vaccine promoting] organisations is one of murder and genocide. . . . I cannot see any other possible explanation. . . . You cannot immunise sick children, malnourished children, and expect to get away with it. You'll kill far more children than would have died from natural infection." --Dr Kalokerinos MD"Two or three years ago there was a rash of positive HIV and hepatitis patients in Baltimore among people who would otherwise not be expected to have a positive test. When studied all of these people had received the influenza vaccine four to six weeks prior and this was rapidly covered up by the press." -- Dr. Eva Snead, Feb 2000Nine die in flu tragedy as epidemic hits nursing home (Daily Express 1/1/1999) Nine pensioners died within days of each other after a suspected flu epidemic swept the nursing home where they lived. An investigation has been launched after it emerged all the victims suffered severe chest infections despite having the flu vaccinations.If vaccines are so effective in preventing disease why have epidemics occurred around the world following mass vaccination programs? In the Philippines for example, "after ten years of compulsory inoculation against smallpox (25 million shots) over 170,000 got smallpox and 75,000 deaths were recorded between 1911 and 1920" (from the Townsend Letter for Doctors article "Are Vaccines Generally Detrimental to the Human Defence System," Feb/Mar 1994)."Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has been reported following administration of DPT. The significance is unclear. 85% of SIDS cases occur in the period 1 through 6 months of age, with the peak incidence at age 2 to 4 months." --From the accompanying insert to Connaught Labs DPT shot."There has been a frightening increase in cases of autism that has not been explained. There are a number of anecdotal reports from parents that symptoms of autism have appeared close to the time of the (MMR) vaccine." Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and clinical lecturer in medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, and a professor of clinical medicine at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine.Even the WHO (World Health Organisation) has admitted, disease and mortality rates in Third World countries have no direct correlation with immunisation procedures or medical treatment, but they are closely related to the standard of hygiene and diet. A 1973 issue of Scientific American revealed the same finding : that "over 90% of all contagious disease was eliminated by vastly improved water systems, sanitation, living conditions and transportation of food." Mass vaccinations did not appear on the scene until a century after the decline in infectious diseases started (1850-1940), but inoculations were, and still are given full credit. --Susan DeSimone"Up to 90% of the total decline in the death rate of children between 1860-1965 because of whooping cough, scarlet fever, diphtheria, and measles occurred before the introduction of immunisations and antibiotics." ---Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, M.D."The mechanics of vaccination to build immunity, on the other hand, is quite unnatural. Rather than space exposure to a relatively minuscule level of micro-organisms in a gradual manner, massive quantities of antigens are introduced into the body through a series of vaccinations that are given right in a row over a short period of time. All vaccines, with the exception of the OPV (oral polio vaccination) are injected directly into the bloodstream, by-passing the mucosal immune system known as the secretory IgA. The secretory IgA is the first in a series of defensive levels within the immune system. It serves as a buffer, filtering microbes so that the impact of these invading organisms is greatly reduced once it reaches the bloodstream. The IgA allows the antigen to be removed in the same manner in which it arrived - through the mucosal barrier - by sneezing, coughing and sweating. So a vaccine that has been injected "gives the body no warning, no generalised inflammatory response, no chance to recognise, duplicate or defend itself against future challenges from typical antigens," writes Dr. Mendelsohn in How to Raise a Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor.A recent topical example: the diphtheria case, and the "fear" created by this one, extremely mild, case in an unvaccinated child. Dr Ossi Mansoor, a principal doctor regarding vaccination policy, stated on Radio Pacific, "The figures we have are that in the 1920s there were 800 deaths every year" (from diphtheria). Yet the New Zealand Government's statistics show the average yearly number was below 100, also that the average death rate per 10,000 mean of population fell from 6.08 to 0.20 before the use of the diphtheria vaccine. --Southland Times 30-Sep-1998"I've been practicing for 40 years, and in the past 10 years the children have been sicker than ever."--Dr Doris J.Rapp, paediatric allergist."I once believed in Jenner; I once believed in Pasteur. I believed in vaccination. I believed in vivisection. But I changed my views as the result of hard thinking."--Dr. Hadwen"Measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and the whole panoply of childhood diseases are a far less serious threat than having a large fraction (say 10%) of a generation afflicted with learning disability and/or uncontrollable aggressive behaviour because of an impassioned crusade for universal vaccination.......Public policy regarding vaccines is fundamentally flawed. It is permeated by conflicts of interest. It is based on poor scientific methodology (including studies that are too small, too short, and too limited in populations represented), which is, moreover, insulated from independent criticism. The evidence is far too poor to warrant overriding the independent judgements of patients, parents, and attending physicians, even if this were ethically or legally acceptable." --Association Of American Physicians & Surgeons"If you want the truth on vaccination you must go to those who are not making anything out of it. If doctors shot at the moon every time it was full as a preventive of measles and got a shilling for it, they would bring statistics to prove it was a most efficient practice, and that the population would be decimated if it were stopped."---Dr Allinson"To pass our examinations and get qualified, we must accept what our teachers tell us. In other words, we must cultivate what Josh Billings called 'A well-balanced mind---one that will balance in any direction required.'"--Major R. Austin M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P"The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunisation.....There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease." --Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, M.D."I think that no person would permit anybody to get close to them with an inoculation if they would really know how they are made, what they carry, what has been lied to them about them and what the real percent of danger is of contracting such a disease which is minimal."---Dr. Eva Snead"There are significant risks associated with every immunisation and numerous contraindications that may make it dangerous for the shots to be given to your child....There is growing suspicion that immunisation against relatively harmless childhood diseases may be responsible for the dramatic increase in autoimmune diseases since mass inoculations were introduced. These are fearful diseases such as cancer, leukaemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's disease, lupus erthematosus, and the Guillain-Barre syndrome." --Dr. Mendelsohn, M.D."Probably 20% of American children-one youngster in five--- suffers from 'development disability'. This is a stupefying figure..We have inflicted it on ourselves.. 'development disabilities' are nearly always generated by encephalitis. And the primary cause of encephalitis in the USA and other industrialised countries is the childhood vaccination program. To be specific, a large proportion of the millions of US children and adults suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia, and other shoots or branches of the hydraheaded entity called 'development disabilities', owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases." --Harris Coulter, PhD"It is pathetic and ludicrous to say we ever vanquished smallpox with vaccines, when only 10% of the population was ever vaccinated." - Dr. Glen Dettman."There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.

And now I could verify, thanks to the files and papers, that all of those who had fallen ill had been vaccinated. This was very upsetting for me." - Dr. Buchwald, M.D."It was similar with the measles vaccination. They went through Africa, South America and elsewhere, and vaccinated sick and starving children...They thought they were wiping out measles, but most of those susceptible to measles died from some other disease that they developed as a result of being vaccinated. The vaccination reduced their immune levels and acted like an infection. Many got septicaemia, gastro-enteritis, etcetera, or made their nutritional status worse and they died from malnutrition. So there were very few susceptible infants left alive to get measles. It's one way to get good statistics. Kill all those that are susceptible, which is what they literally did." --Dr. Kalokerinos, M.D."Only after realising that routine immunisations were dangerous did I achieve a substantial drop in infant death rates." --Dr. Kalokerinos"I well remember, some years ago, listening to a knighted medical researcher as he spoke on the radio, about vaccines. He told two classical stories form the history books. The first concerned Edward Jenner who, according to history, watched as the milkmaid caught cowpox and this protected her from smallpox. So Jenner got some of the 'cowpox' and inoculated it into someone's arm - it fostered and the pus was then inoculated into someone else - 100% success was claimed. 100%!! How absurd - complete with all sorts of germs including hepatitis, syphilis and whatever. If one did that today, without antibiotics, the death rate would be huge."---Dr. Kalokerinos, M.D.The prerequisite for today's medical policy is naturally the currently predominant system of medicine. The sick are the source of income, therefore it is necessary for sick people to be there. And, yes, it proves advantageous if one makes the people artificially sick. --Dr. Med. Steintl: 'International Medical Policy', 1938, BerlinIn the April 15, 1998, issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), an analysis of drug side effects found that toxic reactions to correctly prescribed medications make more than two million Americans seriously ill every year and kill 106,000, putting drug side effects among the top 10 causes of death in the United States. Among children, antibiotics and vaccines cause more adverse reactions than any other.In one study, serious reactions to the DPT vaccine (including grand mal epilepsy and encephalopathy) were shown to be as high as 1 in 600. In another study, approximately one out of every 200 children who received the full DPT series suffered severe reactions. Immunisation: Survey of Recent Research, (United States Department of Health and Human Services, April 1983), p. 76.Dr. Bernard Greenberg, a biostatistics expert, was chairman of the Committee on Evaluation and Standards of the American Public Health Association during the 1950s. He testified at a panel discussion that was used as evidence for the congressional hearings on polio vaccine in 1962. During these hearings he elaborated on the problems associated with polio statistics and disputed claims for the vaccine's effectiveness. He attributed the dramatic decline in polio cases to a change in reporting practices by physicians. Less cases were identified as polio after the vaccination for very specific reasons. "Prior to 1954 any physician who reported paralytic poliomyelitis was doing his patient a service by way of subsidising the cost of hospitalisation and was being community-minded in reporting a communicable disease. The criterion of diagnosis at that time in most health departments followed the World Health Organisation definition: "Spinal paralytic poliomyelitis: signs and symptoms of non-paralytic poliomyelitis with the addition of partial or complete paralysis of one or more muscle groups, detected on two examinations at least 24 hours apart." Note that "two examinations at least 24 hours apart" was all that was required. Laboratory confirmation and presence of residual paralysis was not required. In 1955 the criteria were changed to conform more closely to the definition used in the 1954 field trials: residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days after onset of illness and again 50 to 70 days after onset.... This change in definition meant that in 1955 we started reporting a new disease, namely, paralytic poliomyelitis with a longer-lasting paralysis. Furthermore, diagnostic procedures have continued to be refined. Coxsackie virus infections and aseptic meningitis have been distinguished from paralytic poliomyelitis. Prior to 1954 large numbers of these cases undoubtedly were mislabelled as paralytic poliomyelitis. Thus, simply by changes in diagnostic criteria, the number of paralytic cases was predetermined as used.A study revealed that 1 in 175 children who completed the full DPT suffered severe reactions ("Nature and Rates of Adverse Reactions Associated with DPT and DT Immunisations in Infants and Children" [Paediatrics, Nov. 1981, Vol.68, No.5]) and a Dr.'s report for attorneys which found that 1 in 300 DPT immunisations resulted in seizures (The Fresno Bee, Community Relations, DPT Report, Dec 5, 1984)."Poliomyelitis trends in Pondicherry, south India, 1989-91" (Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health [London], vol. 51, no. 4, August 1997, pages 443-48): About 54 percent of children lamed as a result of poliomyelitis had received three doses of oral polio vaccine before the onset of paralysis."Poliomyelitis associated with type-2 poliovirus vaccine strain. Possible transmission from an immunised child to a non-immunised child" (The Lancet, vol. 1, March 30, 1968, pp. 661-3): a sixteen-month-old boy hospitalised for high fever and paralysis had never received any poliovirus vaccine. >From playing and sharing a bed with a cousin, he apparently had contracted paralytic poliomyelitis from the cousin, who had received type-2 oral poliovirus vaccine thirty-three days before. Virological and serological investigation revealed a vaccine-like strain of type-2 poliovirus. The patient's history revealed no particular susceptibility to infections.""If we look closely, we realise that health for all, according to the WHO, means medicalization and vaccinations for all. That is to say sickness for all." -- Guylaine Lanctot, M.D.Some doctors refuse to vaccinate their own children as well. According to Dr. Jerome Murphy, former head of PediatricNeurology at Milwaukee Children's Hospital, "There is just overwhelming data that there's an association [between the pertussis vaccine and seizures]. I know it has influenced many paediatric neurologists not to have their own children immunised with pertussis."Vaccine Injury Compensation, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Health and the Environment, 99th Congress, 2nd Session (July 25, 1986) p 214 "The vaccination lobby shamelessly takes all the children of this world as hostages to still their greed for money and power. They relentlessly abuse our compassion for the weaker and our concern about health to promote their giga-business. No matter what. No matter how many more vaccine victims will suffer death or side-effects. No matter how many financial resources this strategy devours at the expense of essential social investments like housing and employment. No matter what. Shocking! There is no excuse for this crime. Just as shocking is the observation that (health) policy is no longer under local, democratic control. Everything is set up and organised with scrutiny at the highest, international level by those who take profit from it: the pharmaceutical industry, the financial world, politicians." --Kris Gaublomme, MDFive deaths have been reported in Australia from vaccines in the 19 month period 6/6/97 to 31/1/99. These statistics make a mockery of the words of Australia's Health Minister, Dr. Michael Wooldridge, who said: 'It's more likely your child will die because of a meteorite falling from space than die from immunisation'.'When you do get to the little wrappers that come with the little bottles of vaccine and read the small print, the alarm bells start ringing.., vaccination does not guarantee immunisation... you do run some risk with vaccination... I put it that natural immunity is much more likely to be protective of the child than the much failed record of artificial immunity coming from vaccination'. --Senator Brown of Tasmania (ex medical practitioner).'It is impossible to identify all rare adverse events or to identify the safest vaccine combinations prior to licensure' said Robert Chen, chief of vaccine safety and development activity at the USA National Immunisation Program of the Center for Disease Control.The USA Association of American Physicians and Surgeons said that children younger than 14 are three times more likely to be killed or seriously injured by Hepatitis 'B' vaccine than to catch the disease. They have called for an immediate moratorium on mandatory Hepatitis 'B' vaccine for school children pending further research about dangerous side effects.The USA Public Health Service and the American Academy of Pediatrics are now asking vaccine manufacturers to eliminate the preservative of Thimerosal (a mercury derivative) from all vaccines. Thimerosal is presently being used in Hepatitis 'B, Diphtheria Tetanus, Pertussis (DTPw), Influenza and Bacterial Meningitis (Hib) vaccines. It has been found that the cumulative effects of ingesting mercury can cause brain damage.The Centers for Disease Control in the USA recently recommended the phasing-out of the oral polio vaccine in favour of the inactivated polio vaccine by injection. The risk of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis now seems greater than the risk posed by the disease.The Bovine Spongiform Encephalitis BSE (Mad Cow Disease) inquiry in the UK has shown that the 40 victims of BSE and the new variant Creutzteldt-Jakob disease may not have had anything to do with eating beef, but from injecting vaccines made from the brains of BSE-infected cattle.Modern vaccinations, fear of germs and obsession with hygiene are depriving the immune system of the information input upon which it is dependent. This fails to maintain the correct cytokine balance and fine-tune T-cell regulation, and may lead to increased incidences of allergies and autoimmune diseases. If humans continue to deprive their immune systems of the input to which evolution has adapted it, it may be necessary to devise ways of replacing it artificially. --Rook GA, Stanford JL Dept of Bacteriology, UCL Medical School, London, UK."Instead of the Government spending $400,000 on immunisation, we may get far better health outcomes if we spend $100,000 in some other way, on nutrition for example...When you have an expenditure on getting your community healthier, then the resistance to many childhood diseases is stronger." -Michael Moore, .Health Minister, Hansard 1997."Among school age children, (measles) outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination levels of greater than 98%.

So the occurrence of the same phenomenon all around the world would be asking too much of coincidence." - Dr Viera Scheibner, "Vaccination: The Medical Assault on the Immune System" 1993."In an outbreak of measles in Western Sydney in 1993, 73% of cases occurred in children aged 5-9 years who had been vaccinated against measles according to their parents." -Medical Journal of Australia, 1995."In the USA in 1978, they mandated vaccination and it resulted in a three fold increase in the reported incidence of whooping cough." -Dr. Viera Scheibner showing graphs from Tokai Journal of Experimental Biology and Medicine 1988.Atypical measles has been known about for almost as long as the measles vaccine has been around and it is ONLY found in the vaccinated. It is typified by a milder than usual rash which is probably where the ugly rumour has originated that vaccinated people get milder cases of measles than the unvaccinated. Though the rash may be less, the symptoms can be much worse and the chances of lung involvement are higher than with wild measles (20% +) and liver involvement 3% +) The earliest medical journal study I have about this is "Altered Reactivity to Measles Virus" Atypical Measles in Children Previously Immunised with Inactivated Measles Virus Vaccines. Fulginiti, V.A. et al; JAMA 18/12/67, Vol. 202, No. 12. Viera Scheibner has said that the chances of dying from wild measles are 0.03% while the chances of dying from atypical measles are between 12-15%. It was thought at one time that it was only the early inactivated vaccine that could cause atypical measles, but it is no known that any measles vaccine can. It seems that the vaccine perverts the immune process which may explain the reason why those who are vaccinated can get measles over and over without developing any natural immunity and may not be able to pass immunity onto their unborn child through the placenta.In Post Vaccine Diseases of the Central Nervous System : Preliminary Results from the Mediterranean Journal of Surgery and Medicine Number 2 1996 On page 71...."Most vaccines have in their composition Thimerosal which has been the reported cause of neurologic and gastrointestinal (mainly related to the purinic nervous pathway) symptoms(6,7) These actions are not dose related.""No batch of vaccine can be proved safe before it is given to children." -- Surgeon General of the United States, Leonard Scheele, addressing an AMA convention in 1955"The only safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used" -- Dr. James A. Shannon, National Institutes of Health"In this article we begin to address the subject of vaccinosis, the general name for chronic dis-ease caused by vaccines. For some readers the very idea that vaccines are anything but wonderful and life-saving may come as a surprise, and it's not a very pleasant one. After all, the general population pictures vaccines as one of modern medicine's best and brightest moments, saving literally millions from the scourge of diseases like poliomyelitis and smallpox." --Dr. Richard Pitcairn D.V.M., Ph.D"Pumping more vaccines into the body without understanding such basics as how they'll affect immune system function over time borders on the criminal." --Nicholas Regush, ABCNEWS.comIn the United States during the period 1980-1985, 55 cases of paralytic polio were reported. Of these cases, 51 were caused by the oral vaccine and 4 occurred in people returning from developing countries. (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), published by the United States Center for Disease Control. International notes: Imported paralytic poliomyelitis - United States, 1986; 35, 671-674.)Of the reported 18 cases of paralytic polio in 1977, three of the patients were persons who were in the United States but who were not residents, and 2 of the other 15 victims apparently contracted the disease abroad. Three cases occurred in recent vaccine recipients, and 10 cases had been in close contact with recently vaccinated people. Only 3 cases occurred in persons "without known vaccine association". (Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), January 23, 1978.)A study undertaken at the University of California, Los Angeles, under the sponsorship of the Food and Drug Administration, and which has been confirmed by other studies, links DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) vaccination, and more specifically the pertussis component, to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). This study found that 53 of 145 SIDS victims whose families were interviewed had received a DPT vaccination within 4 weeks. The authors conclude that "the excess of deaths in the 24 hours and first week following immunization and the absence of deaths in the fourth week following immunizations were significant." They call for more studies to substantiate their findings, despite the fact that this is already the third investigation, and all 3 have pointed in the same direction. (Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, 1983. Possible temporal association between diphtheria - tetanus toxoid - pertussis vaccination and sudden infant death syndrome. Baraff, L.J., Ablon, W.J., Weiss, R.C.)A report on 479 whooping cough patients in the US states that 60 percent of patients had received less than 3 doses of DPT vaccine, while the other 40 percent of victims had been fully vaccinated (three doses or more). (Weekly Report, Centers for Disease Control, July 2, 1982.)Because of the obvious dangers of the whooping cough component of the DPT vaccine, physicians are assuring parents of the "safety" of the other two components of the triple antigen - diphtheria and tetanus (DT), although some doctors have a different view. "It is unnecessary to give a routine booster of diphtheria and tetanus vaccine every 10 years... The benefits of the procedure do not justify the risks." (Lancet, May 11, 1985. Mathias, R.G. and Schechter, M.T.)A report on a study of 11 healthy individuals to determine the effects of routine tetanus booster vaccinations, showed that the vaccinations weaken the immune system of the recipients. (New England Journal of Medicine, January 19, 1984.)As reported by a Chicago Board of Health, during an outbreak of diphtheria in Chicago in 1969, four of the 16 victims had been fully vaccinated against the disease, and 5 others had received one or more doses of the vaccine of which 2 of these showed evidence of "full immunity". (The People's Doctor, April 1978, Mendelsohn, R.)A vast number of children who were injected with a killed measles vaccine between 1963 and 1968 in the United States are now subject, as young adults to what is called "atypical measles". This is a very severe form of the disease in which it appears that, because of the vaccination, there is an increased susceptibility to measles viruses, resulting from a damaged immune response. (JAMA, 1980, Vol. 1244, No. 8, pp. 804-806.)A review of 1600 cases of measles in Quebec, Canada, between January and May 1989 revealed that 58 per cent of school-age cases had been previously vaccinated. (MMWR, Measles - Quebec. 1989; 38: 329-330.)Since the widespread use of the mumps vaccine, the incidence of the disease has shifted to adolescents and adults who are much more susceptible to the complications of testicular and ovarian infection which can lead to sterility. During the period between 1967 and 1971 the annual average cases of mumps in persons greater or equal to 15 years of age was 8.3 percent; in 1987 this same age group accounted for 38.3 percent of cases, which is more than an eightfold increase. (MMWR, Mumps - United States, 1985-1988. 1989; 38: 101-105.)The HEW reported in 1970 that as much as 26 percent of children receiving rubella vaccination, in national testing programs, developed arthalgia or arthritis. Many had to seek medical attention and some were hospitalised to test for rheumatic fever and rheumatoid arthritis. (Science, US, March 26, 1977.)This vaccine has been shown to cause serious reactions including convulsions, anaphylactoid allergic reactions, serum sickness-like reactions and death. (Pediatrics, 1987, Milstien et al., 80: 270-274.)A case-control study has shown that 41 percent of meningitis occurred in children vaccinated against the disease. The vaccine's protective efficacy was minus 58 percent. This means that children are much more likely to get the disease if they are vaccinated. (JAMA, 1988, Osterholm et al., 260: 1423-1428.)"The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons." (Review article: 50 REFS. Dept. of Internal Medicine, Mayo Vaccine Research Group, Mayo Clinic and Foundation, Rochester, MN. Archives of Internal Medicine. 154(16):1815-20, 1994 Aug 22. )Measles vaccination produces immune suppression which contributes to an increased susceptibility to other infections. Clinical Immunology and Immunopathology, May 1996; 79(2): 163-170.Early in this century, the Philippines experienced their worst smallpox epidemic ever after 8 million people received 24.5 million vaccine doses; the death rate quadrupled as a result. (Physician William Howard Hay's address of June 25, 1937; printed in the Congressional Record)"Our children face the possibility of death or serious long-term adverse effects from mandated vaccines that aren't necessary or that have very limited benefits" --Jane M. Orient, MD, AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons) Executive Director."There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age." --Paul Frame, M.D., Journal of Family Practice"Official data shows that large scale vaccination has failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection" --Dr Sabin, developer of Polio vaccine."All vaccination has the effect of directing the three values of the blood into or toward the zone characteristics of cancer and leukaemia...Vaccines do predispose to cancer and leukaemia." --Professor L.Vincent - founder of Bioelectronics"You medical people will have more lives to answer for in the other world than even we generals." - Napoleon Bonaparte"The pharmaceutical corporations are engaged in the systematic corruption of the medical profession, country by country" - John le CarréQuestions to ask Vaccination Advocates.Dr. Michel Odent has linked asthma to the whooping cough vaccine. Have you read his research? What do you think?Professor Wakefield (UK) has linked autism and crohns disease to the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. What do you think? What evidence do you have to back up your opinions?Why is the same dose of vaccines given to a two month old as for a 5 year old?Are you aware that Japan changed the start time for vaccinating from 3 months to two years and straight away their SIDS rate plummeted?Do you believe in herd immunity? If so, how is it that 98% of U.S.A. children are vaccinated yet they still have outbreaks of these diseases?Most diseases were already 90% gone before any vaccines were introduced, If this is so, how can vaccines be applauded for diseases ceasing, especially when there were no vaccines for some diseases like bubonic plague and scarlet fever?How can an unvaccinated child be more of a risk than a vaccinated child if neither have the disease? Surely it would be the other way around in the case of the live virus vaccines? These children are assured of having the virus in their bodies to spread.How can the Tetanus vaccine induce immunity, when contracting the disease naturally does not give immunity?If the "so called" diphtheria vaccine, which is in fact a toxoid, works against the toxin produced by the bacteria, and not against the bacteria itself, then how did this "vaccine" help in the decline in diphtheria?

QUOTES FROM MEDICAL DOCTORS ON VACCINES:"When I was training, one in 2,500 [children were autistic]. Now it is one in 250. At the moment, the only logical explanation for this is MMR." -- Dr Kenneth Aitken, British specialist in the treatment of autism. (The Telegraph, United Kingdom, April 2, 2002)"By the (U.S.) government's own admission, there has been a 41% failure rate in persons who were previously vaccinated against the (measles) virus." -- Dr. Anthony Morris, John Chriss, BG Young, "Occurrence of Measles in Previously Vaccinated Individuals," 1979; presented at a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology at Fort Detrick, Maryland, April 27, 1979."There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them, anyway." -- Dr. J. Anthony Morris (formerly Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US Federal Drug Admin.)"Our results suggest that infants whose mothers are born since measles vaccine licensure in 1963 are significantly more susceptible to measles than are infants of older mothers and that the risk of measles increases incrementally with each year increase in the maternal year of birth." -- "Increased Susceptibility to Measles in Infants in the United States," Pediatrics, Nov. 5, 1999.The strong association between vaccination with RRV-TV and intussusception among otherwise healthy infants supports the existence of a causal relation. -- Intussusception among infants given an oral rotavirus vaccine., Murphy TV, et al. Epidemiology and Surveillance Division, National Immunization Program, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, N Engl J Med. 2001 Feb 22;344(8):564-72."The (Illinois) department followed the recommendation of a panel of experts, its Immunization Advisory Committee, while rejecting the advice of others who thought the decision should be left to parents and pediatricians. But in what critics consider a conflict of interest, 5 of the committee's 18 members have financial ties to Merck, which makes the chickenpox vaccine. Two members of the committee have given talks for Merck, receiving up to $750 per speech. A third member directs a nonprofit group that has received $20,000 in grant money from the company. And two other members own stock in Merck, including one who has owned as much as $16,000 worth." - (Sun Times, January 27, 2002)

"Only about 15% of medical interventions are supprted by solid scientific evidence... This is partly because only 1% of the articles in medical journals are scientifically sound and partly because many treatments have never been assessed at all."
Richard Smith, M.D. Editor of the British Medical Journal
The last "safe" MMR vaccine
"I believe the documents clearly reveal how the central government hid undesirable data and delayed discontinuation of the (MMR) vaccine," lawyer Tatsuro Shigemura said."--Media 2002
"The conclusion of the research report was: Children who received all of the AAP recommended vaccinations were 14 times more likely to become learning disabled and 8 times more likely to become autistic compared with children who were never vaccinated.
VAERS reported "11 developed intussusception within 1 week of receiving RRV-TV" out of 1.8 million doses administered, which is a rate of about 0.6 out of 100,000. Kaiser Permanente studied the rate for its patients and found that "Among children who had received RRV-TV during the previous week, the rate was 314 per 100,000 infant-years." Minnesota did a study in its state and found that "the observed rate of intussusception within 1 week of receipt of RRV-TV was 292 per 100,000 infant-years." Hence the actual rate of this adverse effect from the rotavirus vaccine was about 300/0.6 = 500 times the rate reported through VAERS!
...measles, mumps, small pox, polio and Hib outbreaks have all occurred in highly vaccinated populations, in fact, a measles outbreak occurred in a US Centre for Disease Control-documented 100% vaccinated population;
...childhood diseases decreased 90% between 1850 and 1940 in the US, paralleling improved sanitation, hygienic practices and nutrition well before mandatory vaccination programs;

A case-control study has shown that 41 percent of meningitis occurred in children vaccinated against the disease. The vaccine's protective efficacy was minus 58 percent. This means that children are much more likely to get the disease if they are vaccinated. (JAMA, 1988, Osterholm et al., 260: 1423-1428.) Jonas Salk, inventor of the IPV, testified before a Senate subcommittee that nearly all polio outbreaks since 1961 were caused by the oral polio vaccine.
A very large file of quotes regarding the medical and pharmaceutical industry.
"My own personal view is that vaccines are unsafe and worthless. I will not allow myself to be vaccinated again. .....The bottom line is that infectious diseases are least likely to affect (and to kill) those who have healthy immune systems. I no longer believe that vaccines have any role to play in the protection of the community or the individual. Vaccines may be profitable but, in my view, they are neither safe nor effective. I prefer to put my trust in building up my immune system."---Dr Vernon Coleman MB
