If You Are In Support of Vaccinations, Read This If You Dare

by Sarah VaccinationComments: 167


If you are in support of vaccinations, this well written, concise and compelling letter by world renowned neurologist Dr. Russell Blaylock MD will dismantle every single argument used to support this inhumane, barbaric practice. I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Blaylock at a conference a few years ago. He is an extremely intelligent, clear thinking, logical physician who is unafraid of the effect on his career in speaking the truth about the atrocities of vaccinations. Listening to a physician like Dr. Blaylock who has no vested interest in this debate, financial or otherwise, other than speaking the truth for the truth’s sake is infinitely more valuable than listening to physicians and other “experts” who do.

Forced Vaccinations, Government, and the Public Interest

By Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D.
December 2009

Those who are observant have noticed a dangerous trend in the United States, as well as worldwide, and that is the resorting of various governments at different levels to mandating forced vaccination upon the public at large. My State of Mississippi has one of the most-restrictive vaccine-exemption laws in the United States, where exemptions are allowed only upon medical recommendation. Ironically, this is only on paper, as many have had as many as three physicians, some experts in neurological damage caused by vaccines, provide written calls for exemption, only to be turned down by the State’s public-health officer.

Worse are the States, such as Massachusetts, New Jersey and Maryland, where forced vaccinations have either been mandated by the courts, the state legislature, or have such legislation pending. All of such policies strongly resemble those policies found in National Socialist empires, Stalinist countries, or Communist China.

When public-health officers are asked for the legal justification for such draconian measures as forcing people to accept vaccines that they deem either a clear and present danger to themselves and their loved ones or have had personal experience with serious adverse reactions to such vaccines, they usually resort to the need to protect the public.

One quickly concludes that if the vaccines are as effective as being touted by the public-health officials, then why should one fear the unvaccinated? Obviously the vaccinated would have at least 95% protection. This question puts them in a very difficult position. Their usual response is that a “small” percentage of the vaccinated will not have sufficient protection and would still be at risk. Now, if they admit what the literature shows, that vaccine failure rates are much higher than the 5% they claim, they must face the next obvious question – then why should anyone take the vaccine if there is a significant chance it will not protect?

When pressed further, they then resort to their favorite justification, the Holy Grail of the vaccine proponents – herd immunity. This concept is based upon the idea that 95% (and some now say 100%) of the population must be vaccinated to prevent an epidemic. The percentages needing vaccination grows progressively. I pondered this question for some time before the answer hit me. Herd immunity is mostly a myth and applies only to natural immunity – that is, contracting the infection itself.

Is Herd Immunity Real?

In the original description of herd immunity, the protection to the population at large occurred only if people contracted the infections naturally. The reason for this is that naturally-acquired immunity lasts for a lifetime. The vaccine proponents quickly latched onto this concept and applied it to vaccine-induced immunity. But, there was one major problem – vaccine-induced immunity lasted for only a relatively short period, from 2 to 10 years at most, and then this applies only to humoral immunity. This is why they began, silently, to suggest boosters for most vaccines, even the common childhood infections such as chickenpox, measles, mumps, and rubella.

Then they discovered an even greater problem, the boosters were lasting for only 2 years or less. This is why we are now seeing mandates that youth entering colleges have multiple vaccines, even those which they insisted gave lifelong immunity, such as the MMR. The same is being suggested for full-grown adults. Ironically, no one in the media or medical field is asking what is going on. They just accept that it must be done.

That vaccine-induced herd immunity is mostly myth can be proven quite simply. When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades.

If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations.

When we examine the scientific literature, we find that for many of the vaccines protective immunity was 30 to 40%, meaning that 70% to 60% of the public has been without vaccine protection. Again, this would mean that with a 30% to 40% vaccine-effectiveness rate combined with the fact that most people lost their immune protection within 2 to 10 year of being vaccinated, most of us were without the magical 95% number needed for herd immunity. This is why vaccine defenders insist the vaccines have 95% effectiveness rates.

Without the mantra of herd immunity, these public-health officials would not be able to justify forced mass vaccinations. I usually give the physicians who question my statement that herd immunity is a myth a simple example. When I was a medical student almost 40 years ago, it was taught that the tetanus vaccine would last a lifetime. Then 30 years after it had been mandated, we discovered that its protection lasted no more than 10 years. Then, I ask my doubting physician if he or she has ever seen a case of tetanus? Most have not. I then tell them to look at the yearly data on tetanus infections – one sees no rise in tetanus cases. The same can be said for measles, mumps, and other childhood infections. It was, and still is, all a myth.

The entire case for forced mass vaccination rest upon this myth and it is important that we demonstrate the falsity of this idea. Neil Z. Miller, in his latest book The Vaccine Information Manual, provides compelling evidence that herd immunity is a myth.

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

Those pushing mandatory vaccination for an ever-growing list of diseases are a mixed bag.   Some are quite sincere and truly want to improve the health of the United States.   They believe the vaccine-induced herd immunity myth and likewise believe that vaccines are basically safe and effective.    They are not evil people.

A growing number are made of those with a collectivist worldview and see themselves as a core of elite wise men and women who should tell the rest of us what we should do in all aspects of our lives. They see us as ignorant cattle, who are unable to understand the virtues of their plan for America and the World. Like children, we must be made to take our medicine – since, in their view, we have no concept of the true benefit of the bad-tasting medicine we are to be fed.

I have also found that a small number of people in the regulatory agencies and public health departments would like to speak out but are so intimidated and threatened with dismissal or destruction of their careers, that they remain silent. As for the media, they are absolutely clueless.

I have found that “reporters” (we have few real journalists these days) rarely understand what they are reporting on and always trust and rely upon people in positions of official power, even if those people are unqualified to speak on the subject. Most of the time they run to the Centers for Disease Control or medical university to seek answers. I cannot count the number of times I have seen university department heads interviewed when it was obvious they had no clue as to the subject being discussed. Few such professors will pass up an opportunity to appear on camera or be quoted in a newspaper.

One must also appreciate that such reporters and editors are under an enormous economic strain, as vaccine manufacturers are major advertisers in all media outlets and for an obvious reason – it controls content. A number of excellent stories on such medical subjects are spiked every day. That means we will always be relegated to the “fringe media” as our media outlets are called. Despite the high quality of the journalism in many of the “fringe” outlets, they have a much smaller audience. And despite this we are having an enormous effect on the debate.

As the Public Awakens, the Collectivist Becomes Desperate

John Jewkes, in his book Ordeal by Planning, observed that as the British collectivists began to see opposition rise to their grandiose plans, they became more desperate and aggressive in their reaction.   They then initiated a campaign of smearing their opponents and blaming every failure on the unwillingness of the people to accept the planner’s dictates without question. We certainly have seen this in this debate – opponents to forced vaccinations are referred to as fringe scientists, kooks, uneducated, confused, and enemies of public safety – reminiscent of Stalin’s favorite phrase, “enemy of the people.”

This desperation is based upon their fear that the public might soon catch on to the fact that the entire vaccine program is based upon nonsense, fear, and concocted fairy tales. One special fear of theirs is that the public might discover the fact that most vaccines are contaminated with a number of known and yet-to-be discovered viruses, bacteria, viral fragments, and DNA/RNA fragments. And, further, that our science demonstrates that these contaminants could lead to a number of slowly-developing degenerative diseases, including degenerative diseases of the brain. This is rarely discussed but is of major importance in this debate.

The idea that adults and their children would be forced to submit to being injected with dozens of these organisms and organic fragments is terrifying. No regulatory agency is tracking to see if chronic diseases are rising in the vaccinated, yet we have compelling evidence of a massive rise in all autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and certain cancers since the advent of a dramatic increase in the number of vaccines being mandated.

Of special concern is the finding that many of the contaminant organisms can pass from generation to generation. For example, new studies have found that SV-40, a major contaminant of the polio vaccine until 1963, not only existed as a latent virus for the lifetime of those exposed to the vaccine but was being passed on to the next generation, primarily by way of sperm, something called vertical transmission. This means that every generation from now on will be infected with this known carcinogenic virus. There is also compelling evidence that some polio vaccines manufactured after 1963 may contain SV-40 virus.

What makes the SV-40 contamination disaster of such concern is its association with so many cancers – including mesothelioma, medulloblastoma, ependymoma, meningioma, astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, pituitary adenoma, glioblastoma, osteosarcomas, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, papillary thyroid carcinomas, and anaplastic thyroid carcinomas.

The Federal government has gone to enormous lengths to cover up this association, despite the powerful scientific evidence that this vaccine infected at least a hundred million people worldwide with this carcinogenic virus. And, it took over 40 years just to get this far. Linking vaccine contaminations and immunoexcitotoxicity to the drastic rise in neurodegenerative diseases will probably take even longer because of the widespread growth of entrenched powers high in government and their control of the media, which is equally extensive. The fact that powerful, enormously wealthy foundations, such as the Ford Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Rockefeller series of foundations, are supporting forced vaccination greatly enhances the power of governments all over the World.

These foundations operate in the shadows, influencing legislation and government actions through the World Health Organization and individual governmental bodies. Behind every call for forced vaccinations, mandated quarantines, and home invasions, one can find one of these foundations providing the money as well as experts. Remember, the largest of the pharmaceutical-vaccine manufacturers are also providing much of the money for the foundations and serving on the boards of these foundations. The Rockefellers either owned outright or had controlling interest in all of the major pharmaceutical companies. This has given them absolute and extremely powerful access to the reins of power at all levels. Yet, they can be defeated by the truth.

    These same damages and deaths are happening to animals. Vaccinated dogs and cats live about 1/2 the time they did before vaccination. They’re also suffering terribly from auto-immune diseases, brain inflammation which shows as behavior problems (aggression, fear, destructiveness, overly timid, etc.), birth defects, infertility, many gastrointestinal diseases and on and on. My family believes vaccination is contrary to God’s word and are never again vaccinating any living creature. We must fight to stop all forced vaccination before it completely destroys both man and beast. I ask His forgiveness for what we’ve already done before knowing the truth.

    Violet M,

    You KNOW Dr. Blaylock makes his living ONLY by peddling alternative treatments and hoaxy newsletters, because…HOW? Do you know him? Have you spoken to him? Define “alternative treatment.” Alternative to what? Pharmaceutical products? His newsletters are ‘hoaxy,’ you state. Hoaxy in what way, exactly? Have you either verified his data via your own thorough research, and because you’ve actually taken the time to research what Dr. Blaylock claims in his newsletter, you find his claims to be patently false? Is this what you’re stating?

    I completely tire of people who make these type of blanket statements, with absolutely nothing whatsoever, to back them up.

    What is it you are afraid of, Violet? I’m asking in all sincerity; are you employed in any fashion within the mainstream healthcare industry? If so, does what Dr. Blaylock have to tell others regarding his findings on vaccines, etc., scare you in any way? It IS frightening to discover that what we once thought to be truth, is not. We learned this the hard way after our son’s horrific vaccine reactions (all documented in his medical files and admitted to, by his Denver pediatricians at the time).

    Open your heart and your mind, Violet M. Do your own research as so many of us have (most of us have because of loved ones who have suffered horribly after vaccine damage).

    Blaylock’s vested interest? In providing Truth to the masses! He has provided lectures for free (and has done numerous interviews for no fees whatsoever).

    mallpox, diphtheria, tetanus, yellow fever, whooping cough, and measles. someone a lot earlier posted that all of these were history. I find it amusing then that even vaccinated children are getting whooping cough and there is a new epidemic going around!! I’ve not heard of a case of tetanus in years even among those who are not vaccinated. Yellow fever again i’ve only heard of 1 case recently and it was a vaccinated person!! smallpox? Seriously when was the last outbreak?!! diphtheria give me a break. How about the rise in illnesses due to these vaccines? Or known adverse reactions to them and then the dr still approaches the topic? Also do those who are speaking up and accusing those of us who refuse to vaccinate as being uncaring or stupid…..Do you really know what is in some of these vaccines? I duno about many here but i REFUSE to give my newborn child or any of my other children something that contains aborted fetal tissue in it!! To me that’s insane. Not to mention as stated before all the other toxins. Go ahead folks look up the ingredients in those vaccines next time you get a chance. Really look them up. Is that what you want in your body and your children’s body?

      The parents in their grief make a lot of unsubstantiated claims – among them that SV40 was in the polio vaccine given their son. That hasn’t happened in the US since 1961 (their son was born in 1996) or anywhere else since 1980. They also make the since debunked claim that mercury in vaccines is linked to ADD and autism.

        Actually the original batch from the 60s was not taken out of circulation until 1999. this is all documented (a 1/3 of the book is nothing BUT sources on this) in book “The Virus and The Vaccine”. furthermore, SV40 can be passed on from mother to child…Please do your research before making incorrect comments.

        mercury contributes to autism and is documented. However, it is not the only harmful influence that happens in vaccine reactions. if you do your research, you’ll see there are many things in them and harmful about them, including the other adjuvants, like formaldehyde, etc. just look at ingredient list on the CDC website. in addition, mercury has been almost removed from only childhood vaccines but is still in adult ones, including the flu vaccine. and they’ve merely replaced mercury with aluminum. it is the synergy of all this happening (artificially stimulated immune system with multiple pathogens in one go bypassing natural immunity) plus the interaction of all these additives, plus the contaminants (additional pathogens) from the animals that the vaccines are grown on. mecury is dangerous, but it’s not the only variable in causing autism via vaccines.

        Vaccines cause all sorts of neurological and degenerative and chronic diseases that has not been looked at as it should. they harm the immune systems by overstimulating it esp when multiple vax are given (which is always the case). They also do not confer immunity and only activate one arm of the immune system and have only been deemed effective when the body shows (temporary) antibodies to the pathogen. however, this is not immunity, nor does it engage the entire immune system natural processes to develop a stronger immune system like the wild version would. and give multiple ones and it overactivates (and in some people never turns off again) the immune system.

    I’m a board-certified family medicine physician. Frankly, it doesn’t matter one iota how many years of neurosurgery a doctor practiced or what medical school he went to or how many books he wrote. Doctors are humans too, which means they can be very strongly biased, even to the point that their opinions strongly contradict science and truth. And this is dangerous, because they can then use the fact that they are doctors to state their opinions as backed up by fact as this doctor does. The director of my school of medicine was a conservative christian too and didn’t believe in evolution. It’s crazy but you can be a doctor even if you don’t believe in science!

    I could give you the name of thousands of doctors with equal or better qualifications who believe the exact opposite and you would not believe them- because you don’t want to. You’re not looking for the truth; you’re looking for someone to support what you believe, regardless of whether or not it’s true.

    Furthermore, I have several doctor friends who worked in different countries in Africa for more than a year. And they DAILY saw children dying from measles encephalitis and pneumonia, which could have been prevented by yes, the MMR vaccine! Some male children who develop mumps become INFERTILE, forever, because of the orchitis they get. Not every child with measles or mumps develop these complications but some do and that’s why the vaccines were made. In Africa, thousands of children die daily- some from HIV, some from malnutrition, some from diarrhea, and SOME FROM diseases that are easily prevented by vaccination. And why? Because the vaccination rates there are 0-20%! People living in the US are too unaware of this reality to realize that the advantages of vaccine far outweigh the disadvantages. The risk of having unvaccinated children is small in the US but if your child ever plans on travelling to a developing country, I would recommend vaccination.

    Someone posted that tetanus is not infectious person-to-person and that it is not a serious disease. Easy to say if you haven’t seen it. But I have. I saw a child in Ghana with tetanus. He was hospitalized and completely paralyzed. It was terrible. It could easily have been prevented by a vaccine.

    I agree some vaccines are unnecessary. You don’t need to get the chicken pox vaccine. Chicken pox won’t kill you, you’ll just itch for a while and maybe have a fever. No big deal. If you don’t want to get the pertussis vaccine, fine, if you don’t mind your child having coughing fits, trouble breathing, and have access to medical care and the treatment- which is antibiotics.

    But think carefully as you make your choices. Have you ever been to India? I have. When I go there I see children and adults on the streets who have one leg paralyzed. Why? They weren’t vaccinated against polio. Again, most people who get polio don’t get paralyzed but some do. And in a world of 6 billion people that ends up being many children. My aunt has polio. She wasn’t vaccinated. I think her health would’ve been better if she had the vaccine and could walk normally. I know she agrees.

      Agreed with the above. To the majority here who are against vaccinations, how about putting them in an area where they have 0-20% vaccination rate and see how long their children survive. They seem so cocky that they will never get the disease. I too have seen a child with tetanus, very scary. Have they nursed anyone with whooping cough, very scary as well.

      Get a grip people. I bet not anyone of you have nursed or know of someone that has died of any of the preventable diseases. Try it, and I bet you will change your mind.

        Actually, Zon, my fully vaccinated with whole cell pertussis (supposedly lifelong) brought whooping cough home from school when he was 13. He gave it to me (also fully vaxed with the whole cell pertussis vaccine) and my 14 month old son (completely unvax’d) Antibiotics were to prevent transmission. He vomited it up and I threw it away. We nursed like crazy, decreased his solids, upped his nursing. We had exactly ONE episode at night when he kind of scared me. I sat him up, he threw up the phlegm and was all good. Yup, we all coughed and I think I cracked a rib, but there was never any doom or gloom even from our pediatrician. He never lost weight, gained in fact. I actually think it was easier to deal with than when my now 19 year old had RSV at 18 months. That was insane and caused more trouble than whooping cough did in the 3 of us combined. 2 in the house (including the asthmatic 19 year old and my husband who hadn’t been vaxed since 1964) did not get it. My oldest sister had whooping cough. It was very scary for my parents. Prior to that, she was totally unvaccinated. Because of that, we all had our vaccines. I’m vaccinated to the hilt. I’ve had 4 MMR and am still not immune to anything but mumps (at last pregnancy in 2005)

        Of 4 kids, my 2 unvaccinated have had less doctor visits combined than just one of my fully vax’d kids. Lots of differences, though. The last 2 have a different father (2nd marriage), were nursed until they self weaned (almost 3 and almost 2 yoa) and started solids significantly later than the older 2. Since forgoing any vaccines, my adult children are rarely sick.

        Oldest had vaccine induced measles. All 4 have had chicken pox, and 2 of the 4 had whooping cough. Are there some that don’t survive. Sadly, yes, but I can’t imagine feeling any different if my child had a problem with a vaccine vs a problem with a natural disease occurrence. Honestly, both suck..

      India is having a polio outbreak linked to the live virus vaccine. It was reported yesterday that Polio is being found in the sewers in India. How many of the children you see in Africa and other countries have access to safe drinking water or have sanitation systems?

      I was paralyzed by a flu vaccine. The opinion of my doctors and the Vaccine Court. My health would have been better without the vaccine and I could walk normally.

    It seems very simple to me, if you don’t want your child to have their injections DON’T take them. In Britain its the parents choice and yes children who haven’t been done ain’t allowed to go to nursery/school (I think?) ) then that’s your choice I’ve had all 3 of mine done with NO side effects! I don’t understand what the problem is, if you think the government is poisoning your children then don’t get them done. Simple.

      Um, you are aware that in the U.S. most cases of measles and pertussis are caused and spread by vaccine shedding, right? So if your child contracts them, they most likely caught a vaccine strain caused by exposure to a recently vaccinated child. The vaccine shedding lasts from 2 weeks to a month, in the nasal passages of the vaccinated child.

    Dr. Blaylock is a wonderful, caring man who intends only to shed light on this issue so that others might save their children from the dangers of vaccines. I invited him to speak at a vaccine meeting my group held a few years ago, and he gladly showed up and spoke free of charge…no books in tow. Definitely not someone looking to peddle something and mislead, as suggested by someone in the comments here.
    I only wish I had been properly advised of vaccine risks before I allowed them to be given to my oldest daughter Emma, who suffered a neurological reaction and was never the same since. My two youngest children, Addie, 6 and Genevieve, 5 months, are healthy and vaccine-free. Vaccines do not promote health.

    There are many unanswered questions regarding vaccines.
    There is also the fact that many ingredients are not known. Some (“GRAS”, Generally Recognized as Safe), eg peanut oil are not revealed even to doctors, due to trade secrets.

    Some substances are not known even to the manufacturers because they are unexpectedly discovered as analysis methods become more advanced. Two of many examples are cancer elements in the polio vacc and pig DNA in the rotavirus vacc, both discovered long after the vaccines had been marketed.

    It is not only the actual amounts of toxic ingredients in vaccines, but interactions between them should be taken into account. Interactions do occur. Vaccine promoters including doctors appear on the whole to be both ignorant and uninterested in knowing about them, yet interactions may certainly influence the risk of side effects.

    I completely agree with this article. If the gov’t is so worried about these non-vaccinated kids then the vaccines must not work at all. Please.

    I would like to add another tidbit of information to this thread. :-)

    After you do some major digging on Rubella (and you won’t find this on any “regular site” about Rubella) is that the Rubella virus is one of the known causes for autism, which has been known since the 1960s.

    “… rubella (congenital rubella syndrome) is one of the few proven causes of autism.” Walter A. Orenstein, M.D. US as Assistant Surgeon General, Director National Immunization Program in a letter to the UK’s Chief Medical Officer 15 February 2002.

    “rubella virus is one of the few known causes of autism.” This one was one the CDCs website, and 2 years ago when I found this on their website the link to this statement was still there. Now, however, they have taken the page down. Not sure when it was actually taken off….

    “rubella can cause autism”The Pediatrician’s Role in the Diagnosis and Management of Autistic Spectrum Disorder in Children — PEDIATRICS Vol. 107 No. 5 May 2001

    This is the interesting part. The MMR vaccine contains 3 live viruses. Included in that is of course the live virus for Rubella. (Many other vaccines–but not all– have a dead form of the virus used. Some experts believe that live viruses are more dangerous when introduced into the bloodstream because vaccines pass the blood/brain barrier and go straight into the brain). A live form of the Rubella virus means that you are literally putting a live form of Rubella into your child.

    So you basically take a mild illness that, first of all, was almost eradicated just by better living conditions before the vaccine was introduced widely — meaning that the chance you would get this illness is lower than 1% — and then you inject the LIVE form of this illness that can cause autism into virtually every child in developed countries. I believe this could be one reason that many children begin to exhibit symptoms or “get” autism right after they receive the MMR vaccine. It doesn’t take a genius to see the correlation to that one.

    Check out this graph of smallpox mortality and when the smallpox vaccine was introduced.


    As you can see from the graph, smallpox was still crazy high for years after the smallpox vaccine was made compulsory. Epidemics have their own lifespan and smallpox went away after awhile on its own. Here is another graph that shows mortality rates for other diseases declining in lockstep with diseases for which there were vaccines. Vaccine had nothing to do with the decline in disease. The reason was improved sanitation, better access to fresh fruits and veggies, no more horses in the streets etc:

      Thank you for your response. I see that you received this “hard evidence” from another site which also agrees with your platform. Hardly unbiased. And you obviously are not familiar with how contagious smallpox is; the only host is the human being. So in order for Smallpox to just “go away on its own,” it would have to wipe out the human race. I suggest an excellent book “The Demon in the Freezer” by Richard Preston. And And as for your “scientific” research of asking everyone around you if their children are healthier without vaccinations — that is hardly scientific. Of course everyone who agrees with you is going to answer the same way. It’s called bias, and based on observation, not facts. I am going to give you the layman’s lowdown of research. Scientific research (on vaccines, for instance) is highly regulated by the government. It is terribly difficult (especially for pharmaceutical companies) to get money to do research on vaccines, medicines, etc without mathmatically proving that the people they help far outweighs the people they harm. Each study has to go through several phases of animal research before it goes to human research, then several more phases before it goes on the market. Every now and then a drug has a side effect that affects more people than predicted. I will give you non-scientific types out there an example: imagine, if I told you that I did a study on the risk of eating apples causing brain tumors. In my research, I found that fifty percent of people in my study who ate apples on a daily basis acquired brain tumors. Well, that would be pretty scary, correct? Well, then suppose that you found out that this “study” only had two people in it. You might become a little more skeptical, right? Ok, then what if I told you that the one person out of the two that had a brain tumor also had lived near a nuclear plant known for environmental violations for most of his life? Then how convincing would my “research” be? My claim that fifty percent of people in my study developed brain tumors by eating apples regularly was not false. But the protocol was riddled with bad methods- i purposely overlooked other causes to prove my point. Suppose I was doing the same research with a much larger population. However, I went to a cancer ward to find all of my subjects. And wow! I found that 100% of the people in my study who had eaten apples regularly had tumors! These are examples of bad science. These types of studies would not be funded by the government or anyone else. It is every parent’s decision to vaccinate or not. I am not a parent, so i don’t have the right to tell you what to do with your kids. However, I do protest your stating that vaccine evidence is false and there is a big Government coverup. No study is ever perfect, nor is any vaccine. However, I am willing to put my money on the funded, thouroughly tested and thought-out studies and their evidence than those which your idols have done to disprove vaccinations are actually help more than harm (look at their numbers of subjects, the methods, etc). If anyone else has any confusion about scientific studies and/or biostatistics, feel free to ask me because I am supposing a majority of you here know nothing or very little about either. I am not implying that anyone here is an uneducated idiot; I am simply stating that I would never go around telling people how to raise their children, becuase I have no experience in parenting. Unlike you all, I don’t expect to become an expert in parenting by reading a blog or two on the subject.

          Well I am definitely honored, then! :-) However, I am sure I will recieve many-a-response from yet more people who have no background or experience in statistics, or research, thus proving my point even further. I know there is no way I will convince you or you will convince me, this is true. I am just trying to open up another side of the argument for people to ponder…an “Expert witness” if you will.

          I think the take-home of my message was to not claim expertise based on ovservation alone. Also, encouraging your blog posters to “do his/her research” means from all sources, not only the ones which support your cause. You know, there is a Freedom of Information Act. That being said, if you request information on government-sponsored research, you pretty much have the right to look at the exact data used in the studies. But of course no one wants to do that…in our society, it’s much easier to obtain information which forms our opinions on facebook or celeb’s tweets. Simply something to think about. PS- You say your data is from the Government and therefore isn’t biased…does that not contradict all your prior statements that the government skews evidence? And I never claimed that the data were biased…merely the interpretation. Case Re-Opened. Cheers!

    Have you all lost your minds? Do you not remember a little thing called SMALLPOX and how it was irradicated? I suppose it was by luck? No,….by Vaccines, my friends. Learn your history. And why are vaccines for smallpox not given any more..oh yeah, because they are NOT NEEDED since they did their job the first time. I can imagine all of you watching your poor children suffering horrid deaths caused by smallpox and other vaccine-preventable diseases then pat yourself on the back for “saving them” from harmful toxins in their bodies. EVERTHING we put in our bodies holds the risk of making us sick. Does that mean we should stop eating, breathing air, drinking water? NO! We have to decide that the benefits outweigh the risk. Wake up people and do your REAL research; This “world renowned” neurologist is by no means “world renowned”. I did a search for him on Pubmed and do you know how many scientific research articles he has written on his “research”? NOT A SINGLE ONE. He has merely published Reviews on his theories BY HIMSELF with NO collaborators whatsoever. No one wants to collaborate with bad science and “theories”. He can’t seem to get famous by scientific communities so he will pray on gullible parents to lead to the slaughter with their innocent babies being sacrificed in the meantime.

    I read Dr Richard Halvorsen’s book and decided NOT to allow my child to be vaccinated. Best move I ever made. So many of my friends now have children on the Autistic spectrum and one friend’s very healthy little girl died within days of having the MMR jab (she contracted Meningitis but her parents were TOLD that is was NOT the Meningitis in the jab but another STRAIN of it which was the cause of her death). One only has to look at the UK’s booklet “guidance” on children innoculations. The very last page gives one an address to write to “should your child be damaged by the vaccination”. The UK government has removed all Legal Aid to parents suing as a result of their children being irreparably damaged by the MMR jab.

  • Pingback: If You Support Vaccinations

  • Seeds of Truth

    Thank you for posting this. I am overjoyed that so many educated doctors are no starting to jump on the no-vaccine bandwagon with educated facts.

    If you believe vaccinations are safe and effective – and most people do, considering they have been and are constantly bombarded with that viewpoint; that it’s embedded in law, in that they are required for school attendance, acknowledging the fact that exemptions are, in the main, available, but also acknowledging that most people are not aware of them, obviously by design; that it fills the mainstream media; and that our trusted physicians fully support the paradigm – than if they are not, you will have to actively seek out the information from other sources.

    For me personally, there are three primary factors:

    Vaccine damage is real – to wit, the $2 billion in vaccine injury awards paid out by the nation Vaccine Court, including for vaccine-induced death – is potentially catastrophic, is considerably more pervasive than commonly thought, if recognized at all, and cannot be accurately predicted by any doctor, regardless of the individual patient’s history of vaccine reaction or non-reaction. Every vaccination is a game of Russian roulette.

    The diseases against which vaccines ostensibly protect are far less threatening than portrayed by our good medical establishment, which would have us believe, for example, that measles is equivalent to the plague. The media spouts that “vaccines are deadly” and then report world numbers of death for certain diseases. People in Third World countries (namely children) do die, but that’s because they are malnourished and deficient in Vitamin A and C. It is never common practice to reveal that disease can be prevented and/or lived through easily simply by vitamins and diet alone.

    In their – zeal – to convince us to vaccinate, the medical establishment constantly lies and is deceitful. Just one of the many, many, many examples, the diagnostic parameters of polio were officially changed the year following the introduction of the vaccines, such that there would subsequently be a de facto two-thirds reduction in the number of cases reported, yet, in its reporting to the American public regarding the decline in the disease, this was never mentioned. Polio as a disease was reclassified in the 1950’s – non-parylic polio is now called viral or aseptic meningitis and partial paralysis is now often called guillian barre syndrome – these all used to be all under the Polio umbrella. These slight lapses of truth and integrity are, to say the least, worrisome.

    The notion that disease can be eliminated through the hand of man is arrogant and silly. There is, indeed, evidence that the powers that foundationally support and foster vaccination are well aware of that fact, and that their true motivation is other. The other side of the coin is the robust defense mechanism that is the immune system, and how well it operates when nourished and respected.

    I understand the concern over vaccines and I certainly don’t agree with the idea of forced vaccinations as they stand in the USA. I live in a country where we get to choose. My personal concern is that people are choosing not to vaccinate with the idea that sanitation was the major reason for decline in diseases in the past in western countries. However, the role of vaccines can’t be down played by that as we have recently seen a decline in measles deaths and measles related disability in children in some African nations when the only change was that they were vaccinated the year before. I know those parents are grateful to have the opportunity to protect their children. If you’ve ever seen a child dying from measles, you might be more inclined to see vaccines in a more balanced light.

    How long does artificial immunity really last? I received all the scheduled MMR shots as a child. In my mid-twenties, as part of routine pregnancy blood work, it was discovered that I was NOT immune to these illnesses. Not immune to measles, mumps, or rubella in early adulthood after having had all my shots!

    It was recommended that I get a booster shot after my baby was born since contracting one of these during a subsequent pregnancy would be disastrous for the unborn child. I consented to have the MMR booster. Eighteen months later, newly pregnant, another round of routine blood work… STILL NOT IMMUNE.

    Conclusion: vaccines DO NOT protect.

        I’ll concede to you on this point, Sarah. These things DO help. But you cannot devalue the additional role that vaccinations have played. It all works together to create a safer environment. The thing is, you might get lucky in this generation, and because the majority of people are still choosing to vaccinate, your children won’t get sick. But those down the line will not be so fortunate. And that is very, very sad.

        As you said, the road to hell is paved to good intentions. And that could very well be said of your path. I know you do have good intentions.

          Voice of Reason — there is a reason us Anti-vax types do not believe that vaccines can offer Herd Immunity. Herd immunity was originally meant to be applied in populations that had gotten disease naturally and developed a natural immunity. Between 1900 & 1930 A.W. Hendrich studied measles outbreaks in the Boston area. He found that if 68% of the children got measles the outbreak stopped…hence herd immunity.
          Unfortunately, this term has been applied to vaccines as well, but since vaccines do not offer the same sort of protection as natural infection, herd immunity in this context does not exist. We are led to believe it does though, but our vaccination rates are well above the 68% needed (in some areas near 100%) and outbreaks still occur, usually in highly vaccinated populations.

          In 2004 a 97% vaccinated school population got chicken pox, in 1987 a 99% vaccinated school population got measles, in 2010 a 77% vaccinated community got mumps. And there are so many more that I can list. in 1997 there was a measles epidemic in New Zealand, there were 2,041 reported cases and 99% immunization rate. Yet in 1994 there was a rate of 87% immunized and only 33 cases.

          In addition, some diseases have cycles of infections that are not based on vaccinations rates at all, pertussis (whooping cough) being one. Vaccinations can lead us into a cycle of lowered natural immunity and that often results in tougher, more resilient strains popping up, which we then have to rely on more man-made vaccines to “cure”.

          If you are interested at looking at these graphs that have been put together after studying public records, please realize that vaccines are not the reason in any way that diseases have virtually come to an end in many parts of the world. http://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/graphs/ and another one unrelated to the first: http://genesgreenbook.com/resources/obamsawin/ImmunizationGraphs-RO2009.pdf

      There are MANY doctors that hold the opinion that vaccines are ineffective and unsafe. If you visit this website: http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/, you will be able to find hundreds. There are also many instances where vaccine failure rates are even higher than 60%-70%. Tetanus and whooping cough vaccines, as just an example, has up to 100% failure rates. For whooping cough failure rates, just look to the recent outbreak in California. 77% of those that contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated against pertussis. It is hard to find information about this topic in the United States, because it is generally very guarded. If you read medical journals from other countries, namely Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Germany (to name a few), you will find that vaccine failure rate is very high.

      According to a study done on the Amish (who do not routinely vaccinate), the rate of Autism is 1 in 10,000. In heavily vaccinated populations, it is as high as 1 in 38, but averaging at 1 in 63. I think I will take an infectious disease that is not deadly over my child having a 1 in 63 chance of getting autism — or the increased risk of febrile seizures, seizure disorders, respiratory disorders, SIDS etc. What many Americans don’t understand is that illness and disease is what make our immune systems stronger, as well as the “immune system” of the whole country. Herd immunity is effective as long as the majority of the population contracted the REAL illness. It is always hard to see your child work through an illness, but it is more healthy for them to do it. And there are ways to help them be more comfortable during the process. A lot of the diseases vaccinations “prevent” are mild and not serious.

    May I ask: where does the number ‘half the population’ come from wrt not having vaccine induced immunity? Did the other half get the disease naturally at that time?
    I was also wondering about the opinion out there that regardless of the fact that vaccines lose their effect over time, if someone would get the disease, the person does not get as ill compared to someone who would have never had vaccines. Thoughts on that? My concern is that with non vaccinated kids, if they get the chicken pox in their late teens because it is so hard to get, they would indeed be more at risk or complications and in that regard vaccines are really complicating life. Same with my daughter not getting the MMR and not having been exposed to Rubella for example before she were to get pregnant. Most diseases are contagious before we know they are around, so those are things I worry about now, as someone whose kids are unvaxed after severe reactions with my 2nd child.

The fact is that vaccines are not black and white. We all have different DNA and they can affect each person differently.

        Actually, you’re wrong. The tetanus vaccine has never been proven safe or effective. You’re more likely to get tetanus if you’ve had the vaccine.

        I grew up in Germany with six brothers and their friends. We had lots of scrapes. In Germany you don’t get the tetanus shot, yet I have NEVER heard of anybody getting tetanus, ever. I am 59 years old, and I don’t know anybody who’s had tetanus, or have ever known anybody else who has seen one single case, it is that rare.

        It is all about hygiene. All you need to do is clean a cut properly, and you won’t get tetanus. In my ignorance I allowed myself being given a tetanus shot 25 years ago when injured, and had a terrible reaction to it. I was sick for a week, and my arm was swollen terribly as well as covered in itchy hives.

        Never again, the ‘prevention’ here is not worth the infinitesimal risk of contracting tetanus, which can be readily cured by antibiotics, anyway.

        There is also an UN vaccine shot you can get at the hospital for tetanus if you ever require it.. its called the Tetanus Immunoglobin or TiG shot. The Tetanus vaccine will not even work fast enough should you need it immediately. TiG begins working immediately. Much safer then the vaccine, yet no one ever hears of it?! Hmm.. wonder why?

I had to take precautions with my second child because of my sons condition and I refused to get one while pregnant.

      My daughter quit speaking and developed regressive autism after her Hep A shot at age 2. I agree that heavy metals are a big part of the problem, with high levels in baby formula and even our water sometimes, as well as various foods, it is a serious problem. Then when the vaccines comes along, the body’s immune system is to weak to deal with one more onslaught. Good luck with your child. I know from experience raising an autistic child is a full time job, yet every little new skill gained is a small celebration.

            Why don’t you look at folks like Dr. Offit who is a consultant to Merck and gets tons of money for spouting his supposedly non-biased anti-vax propaganda. Don’t dish it out if you can’t take it, my friend.

            What’s also very ironic is that your critique of Dr. Blaylock’s intentions is exactly what he writes about in this essay .. that anyone who stands up against the vax industry and gains some prominence pays for it with career and character assassination.

After all, no one is doing this for free. But then why villify the drug companies for doing it? I mean, if it’s okay for him, why isn’t it okay for them?

            @The Voice of Reason The difference between the BILLIONS of dollars Merck and Pharmaceutical companies make off vaccines is quite different than an independent doctor supporting a cause for the good of others and selling his information. What? He’ll make a couple hundred grand at most? The executives in these huge Pharmaceutical Companies make more in a year than most of will ever see in a lifetime. Do you really think these companies/executives don’t have vested interest in keeping their money? When we can separate corporations from health care then I will be more likely to trust the information. Until big money interests GET OUT of health care I will continue seeking out information on my own and from people like this doctor who clearly only wants to spread what he has found. Nothing more. He has to put dinner on the table for his family — I can support that. But the Pharma executive who is buying his own personal island and driving around in a Hummer — I have no inclination to listen to his advice. That is bit different don’t you think?

            Sarah, there have been lots of great tips I’ve gotten from your website. Your Kombucha guides in particular are great. But I have to agree with josh here. Dr. Blaylock’s article appears to be written more as an anti-government and pro-Ayn Rand piece, which comports with his political affiliations, and certainly isn’t peer-reviewed by any stretch of the imagination.

            My understanding is that at this point the anti-vaccination movement, insofar as it contemplates general non-vaccination, has been largely discredited. It made me sad to see you post Dr. Blaylock’s piece. I think that someone like you should feel OK coming forward and admitting that, while the anti-vax movement has raised valid concerns, and perhaps supports a graduated vaccination schedule, all verified evidence thus far certainly doesn’t support not having your children vaccinated at all.

            I don’t think that it is a valid argument that because there are risks to vaccines, therefore parents should be able to choose to not vaccinate their children. If non-vaccination became widespread, I don’t think that anyone would argue that there would be real, severe outbreaks of measles, pertussis, and various other childhood diseases. And babies would certainly die as a result. So while we can certainly raise concerns about vaccine additives, proper vaccination schedules, and industry/government collusion, it seems to me to be quite dangerous for you to advocate non-vaccination, even in the face of these concerns.

            And let’s face it – the anti-vax movement, and the resulting pertussis outbreaks and general opprobrium, has given the other facets of a mindful lifestyle – recycling, composting, yoga/meditation, green living generally – that do in fact have a solid rational foundation – a bad name! The other day I was telling a friend about my compost pile and he smirked, “Are you one of those people that didn’t vaccinate their kid?”

            We can do better.

    A friend of mine started attacking me on Facebook on my profile page publicly!!! because I have a different opinion about vaccination than she has. She called me all sorts of names, nuts and crazies. Then she is telling me on Facebook chat secretly!!!! that her son’s health problems started straight after the MMR vaccine but she can’t say this in public because she works in health care. I looked after her kids for almost 2 years and I have never seen sicker kids than those 3. They have all sorts of allergies, asthma, life threatening nut allergy, regularly caught all sorts of flues and other “bugs” have eczema and yes they have serious brain/neurological problems.
    So who is nuts? Me, who is demanding the real numbers and data and information before getting vaccinated or she who knows full well how her child’s health deteriorated after the MMR but still supports the vaccination dogma.

We, like you, believed the brainwashing propaganda until injured. then began the real search for real science and truth behind vaccines. fear is exactly what is motivating you and the pro-vaccine group….fear incited by the controlled media playing you like puppets. fear of us “anti-science” nutjob anti-vaxers who are threatening the lives of children! when just the opposite is true. people like YOU are causing all sorts of suffering and chronic illnesses by parroting the same old stuff of pseudo science of vaccines and from the propaganda fear enciting media.

        Unfortunately for many anti-vaxxers, we educated ourselves with real data, facts, and science only after vaccinating and realized how little we did know until then. my life has been taken for the most part from vaccine injury.

    If childhood vaccinations last “only” 2-10 years, why are all the outbreaks and deaths only among unvaccinated children in areas where anti-vaccine nuts collect?

    Fortunately vaccine rates are slowly climbing, even among teens.

What I don’t understand is how the hundreds of thousands of credible pracitioners who happen to disagree with him are “wrong” and “criminal” and “trying to do harm,” and yet you defend someone who is not credible and has proven that he was motivated by financial gain.

      Brian did his job. He exposed Dr. Wakefield for the fraud that he was.

      The Vaccines Cause Autism argument has not proven to be a fraud, one researcher and one study have been. For the record, I do *not* believe there’s a direct correlation between the two, but a contributing factor or a trigger in those already susceptible. Regardless, you can’t prove a negative, so the discrediting of a single study when others are unwilling to study it with any intellectual honesty does little to ease legitimate concerns.

        Hi BL,

        Wake Forest Medical School is in the process of replicating Dr. Wakefield and Dr. O’Leary’s findings. Out of 82 autistic children examined so far (they will be examining 275 total), 70 have auto immune bowel disease caused by the measles virus (the vaccine strain, NOT the wild measles strain). This EXACTLY replicates Dr. Wakefield’s findings. Is he a fraud? Heck no. Is is being railroaded? Absolutely. Wouldn’t be the first time someone’s life is destroyed to protect corporate profits.

            Do you know what Wakefield’s original study was about? It was about bowel disease in children with autism. It had nothing to do with vaccines at all. Parents self-reported that they believed vaccines could be involved, which Wakefield found interesting and recommended “further research,” but he DID NOT conclude that vaccines had any correlation with autism at all. Anyone who says he is a “fraud” does not know what his original research was about at all.

    You begin with “listening to a physician like Dr. Blaylock who has no vested interest in this debate, financial or otherwise” and you’re wrong. Dr. Blaylock quit his career as a neurosurgeon to begin a more lucrative career selling books, products, and his time as a speaker to people who will listen to a charismatic character with no moral compass whatsoever.

    Blaylock’s assertion that herd immunity only applies to natural immunity is false. It is applied equally to immunized immunity and naturalized immunity. Herd immunity is herd immunity. If enough people are immunized against an outbreak, it can be stopped.

    Alternatively, if enough people are NOT immunized diseases once thought wiped out can be resurrected and wipe out hundreds, thousands. People who have been immunized but have weakened immune symptoms are often susceptible. but, hey, you’re kids are healthy and strong and well-fed off your own piece of the anti-vaxxer pie, so who cares about the poor kids anyway? Right? People do die from these illnesses. Each and every one of you should be ashamed for the return of pertussis and the deaths of the children who weren’t strong enough to fight it. SHAME ON YOU.

      CanAm I challenge you to read The Vaccine Illusion by Dr. Tetayana Obukhanych, a doctor in Immunology. She debunks the myth of herd immunity fairly and squarely, SCIENTIFICALLY. The problem is that “herd” immunity can only be brought about through natural immunity–people catching something, living through it (which most do), not through immunizations which do not provide immunity at all. Case in point, the latest whooping cough outbreak in WA state.
      Part of Tetayana’s argument concerns how much we are damaging our kids’ immune systems so they will not be able to fight anything well. We are seeing this clearly in the #s who are sick and disabled on some level. Esp. in light of the children who are not vaxxed and how well they are…

    Irresponsible twaddle.

    Smallpox and poliomyelitis were just “myths” also one supposes.

    With measles infection encephalitis occurs once every 2,000 cases. With the MMR vaccine [measles, mumps, rubella] encephalitis occurs every one million cases and is treated successfully. 3 vaccines yet 1/500th the risk. Or 1/1500th the risk.

    More so, catching measles naturally leads in many cases to subacute sclerosing panencephalitis in late teens or early adulthood. Similar issues remain absolute scientific fact for all vaccine preventable disease. So, 1/1800th the risk

    No, vaccines really are not “inhumane, barbaric atrocities”. Your conduct, knowing average lay educated people unable to access source material or the fact Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D. was paid by parents and legal firms of autistic children – as was Wakefield – will believe this sham, most certainly is. Spreading fear, lies and dressed up misinformation in a technically viral way, encouraging memes – ‘viruses of thought’, is what you’re doing.

          That number 1 in 2000 measles cases gets encephalitis is wrong. I am of the understanding that that figure is hospitalised cases. And even if it was reported cases according to the CDC 3-4 million people get measles a year and 400—500 died, 48,000 were hospitalized, and another 1,000 developed chronic disability from measles encephalitis. So do the maths and you will see that even given the worst case scenario your figure is wrong. If we average it out and say 3.5 million cases, thats a death rate of 0.2% (that could be wrong, my maths is bad) and a risk the risk of encephalitis is less than 1% also. Given that vaccine rxns are grossly under reported and I have a good understanding of how measles works and how to treat it I think I will stick to the risk of the disease over the risk of the vaccine.

      One of the “adverse reactions” for ALL vaccines is encephalitis. Catching measles as a child it crucial since, as you point out in your extremely condescending response, catching measles as an adolescent or adult can prove harmful. Dr. Blaylock has been discussing the negative aspects of vaccines and other very harmful products for many more years than it has been “popular” to do so. His agenda is to help people learn the truth. One most people have been brainwashed into not seeing.

    I am a non-vaxing parent of a 2yr old. I do worry that vaccines are compromising the health of our people. But, when I asked a friend of mine what she thought of this (she’s in college, had to get some vaccines and made it summer project to research them), she said, “…when I search Dr. Russell Blaylock MD in Pub Med and the directory of open source science journals I could find no research articles by him or connected to him. The article is based entirely on his opinion. I then discovered that he is employeed by Belhaven University, an uber conservative christian school that teaches things like “evolution is a tool of the devil” and other such anti-science nonsense. All of this points to his lack of credibility in my eyes….I feel that it is popular right now to be critical of Scientific evidence (the climate change denyers, the continued reliance on oil, creationists etc) and that as progressives we need to carefully look at both sides and their motivation for their opinions. Dr. Russell Blaylock is clearly connected to a group of people who are committed to a conservative agenda and destablizing trust in Science, and in destablizing a multicultural society. I wonder how discouraging vaccination plays into that agenda.”

    My friend makes excellent points! I want clear, science-based information without backroom politics. I’d love to hear something that made me feel better about Dr. Blaylock and his “facts”.

      Judging someone by the religious dogma of a university where he is only a visiting professor is pretty lame, in my opinion.

      Dr. Blaylock is a board-certified neurosurgeon, author and lecturer. He attended the LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana and completed his internship and neurosurgical residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. For the past 24 years he has practiced neurosurgery in addition to having a nutritional practice for 2 years. Retiring from his neurosurgical practice to devote full time to nutritional studies and research, Dr. Blaylock has written and illustrated three books (Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life, and Natural Strategies for The Cancer Patient). In addition, he has written and illustrated three chapters in medical textbooks, written a booklet on nutritional protection against biological terrorism, has an e-booklet on radioprotection (Nuclear Sunrise), written and illustrated a booklet on multiple sclerosis, and written over 30 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals.

      Other credits include Dr. Blaylock’s DVD Nutrition & Behavior, a CD-ROM on the Truth About Aspartame, and, for the past five years, a health newsletter The Blaylock Wellness Report, published by NewsMax. Since the publication of his first book, he has been a guest on over 100 syndicated radio and television programs and appeared on the 700 Club seven times. He lectures widely to both lay and professional medical audiences on a variety of nutritional subjects. Here is the rest of Dr. Blaylock’s credentials.

      Dr. Blaylock is a visiting professor of biology at Belhaven College and serves on the editorial staff of the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association, the editorial staff of the Fluoride Journal and is on the editorial staff of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, official journal of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. He is also a regular lecturer for the Fellowship for Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine.

      One thing I want to point out—evolution is only a hypothesis. It’s not really a theory. Just google the difference between a hypothesis and a theory and you’ll find out:
      “A hypothesis attempts to answer questions by putting forth a plausible explanation that has yet to be rigorously tested. A theory, on the other hand, has already undergone extensive testing by various scientists and is generally accepted as being an accurate explanation of an observation. This doesn’t mean the theory is correct; only that current testing has not yet been able to disprove it, and the evidence as it is understood, appears to support it.”
      There is no way to “test” evolution because nobody has yet developed a method of time travel.
      “Science” doesn’t KNOW evolution is fact, they are just making an “educated guess” and then publishing it as a well-known fact.

        The use of terms such as “theory” and “hypothesis” among the general public does not mean that they have the same meaning in scientific terms. A scientific theory is not just a loose set of ideas. It has undergone testing.

        BTW you should know that science doesn’t prove things true, it only moves in the direction of truth by proving what is not true, and altering current theories and hypotheses in line with additional evidence. All scientific knowledge is in a sense provisional, because it’s always possible we’ll know more in the future. Indeed, that seems highly likely. So we’re always operating on imperfect information, to some extent.

        And “science” doesn’t “know” anything, because science is a method of gaining knowledge by testing hypotheses and accumulating evidence. The idea is to find the best explanation for the known facts. The established body of knowledge can be overturned, yes, with better evidence. This happens all the time, and not without resistance, scientists being human and all. The scientific method starts with observations, leading to questions and testable hypotheses, which are gradually refined through experimentation, leading to theories, which in turn are constantly refined until or unless they are overturned by a new theory that better explains the existing body of facts and accumulated knowledge and observations about how the world works. (Laboratory experimentation is of course not possible for all fields of inquiry, so the exact methods of research will vary.)

        Evolution is indeed a well-established theory and it has been considerably expanded and refined since Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace.

        It makes as much sense to say calculus is only a hypothesis. This anti-evolution business does not earn a lot of credibility.

          Jenmarie, the problem is, that evolution has absolutely NOT progressed from a hypothesis to a theory, because there is absolutely ZERO proof for it!

          Darwin himself said that if transitional forms weren’t found within 100 years of his writing, his theory was invalid. Well, NOT ONE transitional fossil has been found!

          He gave other examples that proved his own theory (hypothesis) wrong.

          It is a fact that the only reason evolutionists believe in evolution (as it is based on faith entirely, it is a religion of its own) is, that they don’t want to believe in God.

          Several well-known evolutionists have said that evolution can’t be true, but they would believe it anyway, as they didn’t like the alternative. Very scientific, indeed!

          Check out these two websites:



          There are many more that prove that evolution is a hoax, just as vaccination is.

      Please purchase a book by Dr Richard Halvorsen. A UK Based paediatrician. He lists many scientific studies and research into all the vaccines. It is a well presented and totally scientific presentation regarding vaccines. You can also go to his website to view the studies he mentions in his book. I read it cover to cover and then viewed the multitude of research he puts forward. This gave me an informed opinion, based solely on scientific FACT, to rather NOT vaccinate my child. She is a very healthy little four year old yet many of her peers in Playgroup and Nursery suffer from autism and every parent of these children will hasten to report that their child was healthy and “normal” BEFORE the jab but deteriorated immediately after them.

      Vaccination has been a failure and a fraud right from its beginning over 200 years ago when Jenner launched his useless and disgusting cowpox vaccine against smallpox, Clove. It is an organised crimnal enterprise dressed up as disease prevention by means of junk science. It is high time this ugly and brutal money-making racket perpetrated on defenseless children was abolished. .

      Carmen, you know that most Pediatricians in my area would drop you as a patient even if your reason for not vaccinating was on religious grounds! I am just itching for an attorney to file a class action suit against some large Pediatric group and make an example out of them. This is totally against the US Constitution which forbids discrimination based on religion. If any attorney specializing in class action lawsuits reads this, please email me and I can get you names of clients who have been dropped and a large Pediatric group to sue for this type of unethical behavior.

        Sarah, the religious protections contained in the US Constitution applies only to government action. If a lawsuit could be brought against pediatricians for dropping non-vaxing patients, it would not be on constitutional grounds.

          The other issue is that a pediatric office is a private business. Like any other private business, they have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.

          This is why I would never use a Ped for my completely vax free 7 YO. If she ever needs a doctor, we would go to a family practicioner…so far we have never needed one of those either.

    Hi Sheila, Rhogam is manufactured just like a vaccine. The immunoglobulin comes from the antibodies of Rh negative women whose blood was exposed to Rh positive protein. Whether or not you call it a vaccine or not is a matter of semantics. It is a dangerous shot full of poison and toxins nonetheless.

          Just a thought too, many women carry babies with blood types that do not go well with theirs (such as O women carrying A, B, or AB babies). Have you ever heard of this being a problem? I looked it up after pondering the idea, and apparently it can potentially have the same problem as Rh incompatibility, supposedly a bit less often, but it still can create the same issue. My guess is you don’t hear of it because there is no magical pharmaceutical for these instances, but if there were, every woman would be tested and injected if they weren’t of the AB blood type. After considering that, I am not so sure rh incompatibility is as big of an issue as they make it out to be for most people.

    @Anon: The Rhogam shot is not a vaccination. It does not contain a virus and isn’t intended to provide immunity to anything. Rather, it’s an injected medication called immunoglobulin which prevents the mother’s body from forming antibodies against her baby’s blood.

    Though I always think twice before accepting any medication, I did receive the Rhogam shot because I never heard of any severe side effects or dangerous additives, and the risk of not getting the shot — becoming sensitized to my future children and destroying their blood in utero — was definitely serious enough for me to take it.

    I should also add that epidemics have a life of their own and polio etc had run its course and was already declining rapidly when the vaccine came into play. If you google this and examine the chart of polio cases and when the vaccine was introduced, you can see this easily. In medical textbooks, the decline is only shown to be when the vaccine came about … the years before that with the steep drop in cases yet no vaccine is chopped off!

      And what about the fact that vaccines have brought six other major human diseases under some degree of control – smallpox, diphtheria, tetanus, yellow fever, whooping cough, and measles.

      Notice, I am not a fool. I did not say these diseases are 100% under control. But they are killing far less children than they did before vaccines against them were invented and applied.

        Small pox actually increased in incidence after widespread vaccination. It was active quarantine that finally brought it under control. Tetanus is not and has never been communicable, nor do I think it was ever considered to be a major human disease. What about scarlet fever? This disease used to kill and maim children and yet without a vaccine for it it is no longer a dreaded threat in the nursery.

    Hi Dem, the huge and ignored reason for the end of pre WWII epidemics such as you describe was the rise of running water and flushing toilets which resulted in huge sanitation improvements. Also, getting rid of the horse in the city environment was a big sanitation improvement as well. In addition, electricity and heating oil improved heating in the cold winters which again protected people from the huge stress of the winter's cold.

      Um, no. Sorry. Yes, santitation conditions have improved SOME things. But vaccinations have eradicated many, many diseases that aren’t caused by unsanitary conditions.

      But last I checked, a non-flushing toilet doesn’t cause polio.

    The first time I heard about problems associated with vaccines was two years ago. I met a lady (a biologist) whose son was autistic. She spent a great deal of time relaying the facts associating vaccines and how they are administered to the development of autism in boys. I consider myself pretty well-read (although at that time my sources were all main-stream) which shows how effective the powers that be have been in keeping this type of news out of the news.

    That's fantastic, Jack. I'm glad the blog has given you more information to make an informed decision with. Autism is just one of the many, many lifelong health risks from getting vaccinated and more people need find out about this before it's too late. I can't tell you how many Moms I know with children with health issues ranging from allergies to cancer (all linked to vaccines by the way) who wish with all their heart they had not vaccinated their child.

      I will have to disagree, as I have a son with Aspergers. He had signs of this form of Autism prior to ever being vaccinated. I do not support the idea of vaccinations causing Autism, if that was the case why didn’t generations prior to now have issues with Autism like we have now. I am no expert but didn’t we have huge death rates prior to the use of vaccines. We had old tuberculosis hospitals in our cities long ago which housed those who had TB, and huge numbers of people went there and died from the disease. After vaccination we have not heard of huge outbreaks since.
      I am not saying all vaccines are good for you but I think some do have benefits that far out weight the risks of not receiving them.
      Do you have sources to give me that prove vaccines do cause what this article is claiming? I would very much like to read more information if you have it.
      I am not saying you are wrong and I am not saying I am right, I just don’t agree with you based on what information I have seen out there and I would welcome any information you could share with me.

        It may not point directly to the SV-40 contamination but here are several studies and link to research regarding several different issues with vaccination. Some children are vaccinated with no problems – an increasing number are not escaping that fate. Most children these days are vaccinated at the hospital less than 24 hours after birth for HepB. Moms are getting prenatal flu shots, MMR boosters and RhoGam shots. Not to mention their vaccination history. Just THINK

        Sonia, just because your son showed signs of aspergers prior to vaccinations does not mean that they couldn’t have exacerbated (or even caused) the problem. Rh(-) mothers receive a Rhogam (RHig) shot during pregnancy, and most mothers are also recommended to get the flu shot. Both shots contained thimerosol (mercury) until 2002 or so, now it has been removed from RHIg but the flu shot (given to all pregnant mothers that follow the recommendation) still get it. It is interesting because Rh(-) mothers (mothers with a blood type ending in -) have much higher rates of autistic children, despite being in the minority. There are many sources of studies showing thimerosol causing brain damage-the most recent was done in May 2012, injecting pregnant mother mice with a dose of thimerosol comparable to what a pregnant mother would receive. The baby mice born to those mothers had dopamine and seratonin problems and many markers (social issues) that are shared with children on the autism spectrum. If you search PubMed with the word “thimerosol” you will find many studies, pages and pages of them. Even without vaccinations, 1 in 6 mothers carries a toxic heavy metal body burden at levels known to cause harm to the fetus. Google mercury poisoning. The symptoms of early mercury exposure or poisoning are almost exactly the same as the symptoms of autism. We live in a very poisoned world, and in my opinion, whatever we can do to reduce our toxic load, we should.

        Sonia, there is no vaccine for TB. It has diminished due to good sanitation and good nutrition as well as antibiotic treatment. Sadly, it is making a comeback in some countries like India among those who live in poor conditions, and it is drug-resistant.

        Vaccines for diseases like measles were never necessary–the disease didn’t kill many people, and it conferred life-long immunity. It was relatively easy to make the vaccine for it, so they did. Follow the path of least resistance–don’t you think there would be a vaccine for a lethal disease like AIDS if they could make one? Ah, but that is an RNA-virus, and they just can’t get a handle on it!

        I’ll take my chances on the diseases rather than the unknown adverse effects of the vaccines.

          To inject a cocktail of poison including mercury and formaldehyde at rates higher than is considered safe exposure is not only insane but asking for trouble. Both of these toxins are known to cause neurological problems at lower PPM than in vaccines.
          This tells me they are unsafe to be injected. END OF STORY.
          Why do these poisons have to be in vaccines?
          Why does the other rubbish (aborted fetal tissue etc) have to be in there?

        Do a little research.

        Child Vaccination Schedules

        Children in the 50’s and 60’s had 3-4 vaccinations (in the US)
        Children in the late 70’s and 80’s had 12 (in the US)
        Now by age 2 a child receives 36 vaccinations and as many as 42 by the time they start school
        *The number of vaccines is ever increasing (why is this?)

        Autism rate in the US:

        15 years ago… 1 in 10,000

        5 years ago… 1 in 150

        Today it is… 1 in 70

I’ve read troughly the article, and there is one question that still goes unanswered: if there is no such thing as herd community, how come there is no more polio? Oh and by the way, most diseases, when you have them “naturally” dont leave life long inmunity. Only some diseases do. But the principle in herd inmunity is not that of lifelong antibodies for everyone, but i refers to a population with antibodies that eliminates the carrier state of most diseases.
