More to Vaccination than the Shot

Most people give more
time and consideration to buying a car than to the vaccines their
children are given. Although volumes of books, medical journals, U.S.
Congressional Record testimonies and international health statistics
spanning more than 100 years question, challenge, discredit and
condemn the practice of vaccination as an unproven pseudo-scientific
theory, it remains in widespread use. One need not be a licensed
"expert" to approach and comprehend this subject. An open
mind, a focused commitment to good health, and common sense will do.
As Ethyl Douglas Hume
explains in her classic book Bechamp or Pasteur (1923),
"The whole belief [of vaccination] is rooted in a belief in the
immunity conferred by a non-fatal attack of a disease. The idea arises
from the habit of regarding a disease as an entity, a definite thing,
instead of a disordered condition due to complex causes; the germ
theory of disease, in particular, being the unconscious offspring of
the ancient Eastern faith in specific demons, each possessed of his
own special weapon of malignity. Thus, the smallpox inoculation
introduced into England from Turkey by Lady Mary Wortley Montague in
the eighteenth century  and its substitute of cowpox inoculation
were based on the ancient Indian rite of subjecting people to an
artificially- induced attack of smallpox to propitiate Sheetula Mata,
the goddess of that torment."
The modern version
substitutes "germs" for "demons." An organized
destruction of natural health care escalated around 1850, when chemist
Louis Pasteur misinterpreted the brilliant and revolutionary work of
Professor Antoine Bechamp (chemist, physician, naturalist, biologist)
on the essential role of germs in life processes. We literally have
been suffering under that delusion ever since.
Vaccines Are Not
It is a little known
fact that vaccines are immunosuppressive. They are produced from and
contain cells from sickened animals (calf lymph, monkey kidney, chick
embryo, etc.), human fetus tissue, viruses, heavy metals (mercury,
aluminum), antibiotics and a host of chemical propellants and
solutions (formaldehyde, etc.). These substances are acknowledged
poisons. Injecting foreign matter into the bloodstream results in a
wide range of diseases of the blood, brain, nerves and skin (including
cancer, leukemia, MS, arthritis, immune deficiency), and even death.
Does putting these toxic substances into a healthy newborn and
continuing to administer "booster shots" throughout
childhood (and now adulthood) prevent disease? The immune system is
simply doing its job when it expels material from the body through
rash, diarrhea, nausea, fever, etc. When we quell the cough, break the
fever, drug or suppress the symptom, what are we preventing?
A Morbidity and
Mortality Weekly Report (July 1985) table shows a long list of
adverse reactions to DPT vaccination occurring within 48 hours. One in
two (1/2) doses resulted in pain, 1/3 in redness, and 2/5 in swelling.
Although some symptoms of vaccine damage appear as mild/local
reactions (up to 50%), this does not deny internal systemic damage.
High-pitched screaming or inconsolable crying (possibly indicating
encephalitis or brain inflammation) occurs in 1/100. The statistic is
in doses; thus, since every child gets 5 doses, this occurs to 1 in 20
67,000 U.S. children
are given the DPT vaccination each week. Does this relate to the
steady rise in children with hyperactivity and brain dysfunction? Some
babies fall into a coma for the 2-day observation period. This, as
well as other damage and death that sometimes follows, is not
acknowledged, noted on the child's medical record, nor reported to the
Center for Disease Control (CDC), the organization that compiles and
reports statistics like incidence of adverse reaction to vaccines.
The patient vaccine
information insert for the DPT (Diphtheria/ Pertussis/Tetanus) triple
vaccine reads..."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." The vaccine is given at 2,
4, and 6 months. What is unclear? Death in infants from vaccination is
being called many things, including SIDS, to obscure the actual
cause(s). Not one of the hundreds of parents we have spoken with was
ever shown this patient insert by the doctor.
What happened to the
threat of swine flu? As of 1978, more than 3000 lawsuits for deaths
and paralysis resulting from the swine flu vaccine injections were
filed against the U.S. government, totaling $1.5 billion in
compensation. If the vaccine was withdrawn, how did the disease
disappear? Perhaps it never existed?
Vaccines Are Not
a grand medical delusion. Immune function, like all other body
processes, responds to and is the direct result of changing beneficial
and detrimental health practices and factors. There is no magic pill
or potion that will lock us into a state of "protection" in
spite of our actions. We are biologically accountable for our
behavior. Technology cannot trick it without serious repercussions.
In 1950, the British
Medical Society conducted exhaustive studies on the relation of the
incidence of diphtheria to the presence of antibodies. Their
conclusion: there is absolutely no relation between the antibody count
and the incidence of disease. More recently, Dr. Wendell Belfield of
San Jose, California has found that when the primary immune defense
(leukocytes, interferon, etc.) is intact, antibodies are not needed or
produced. If vaccine toxicity destroys the first line of defense of
immune function to create antibodies, what do we gain in their
Polio and paralysis are
not synonymous. Dr. Ralph Scoby, President of the Polio Research
Institute published (Archives of Pediatrics, 1950) a list of 170
diseases with "polio-like symptoms and effects but with different
names." Paralysis is the result of the diphtheria (and other)
vaccination, tonsillectomies and malnutrition. Yet the public was
rallied to accept the Salk anti-polio vaccine for a disease diagnosed
without viral confirmation, the medical standard. The result was that
paralysis increased up to 600% and 17 states banned use of the
vaccine. Government agencies knew yet refused to recall the vaccine in
order to keep public confidence in vaccination high. If the Salk
vaccine wiped out polio, why did the Sabin oral vaccine replace it? It
was called "superior;" it is not. Taken by mouth, it is only
A State Communicable
Disease Report for California (1971) shows that between 1955 and
1966 the reported number of polio cases dropped from 273 to 50 while
viral meningitis rose from 5 to 256 cases. Another California report
lists "0" polio cases. An asterisk leads the reader to this
statement, "All such cases now reported as meningitis."

Vaccines Are Not
Responsible For The Eradication Of Disease
Address of the British Association for the Advancement of Sciences
(1971) and Scientific American (1973) presented records
documenting that 90% of all "contagious" disease was
eliminated as the result of vastly improved sanitation, water systems,
nutrition and living/working conditions. Mass vaccination (and
antibiotics) was introduced about 100 years after that enormous period
of decline (1850-1940) and yet is given full credit.
The U.S. Congress'
Office of Technology Assessment's report entitled "Assessing
the Efficacy and Safety of Medical Technologies" states,
"It has been estimated that only 10 to 20% of all procedures
currently used in medical practice have been shown to be efficacious
by controlled trial." The report adds that almost every surgery
that was subjected to controlled medical study has been abandoned.
Vaccination (technically surgery) remains unproven because authorities
consider it unethical to not do it. Vaccinating the entire population
destroys the evidence for proving or disproving the theory.
Dr. Leon Chaitow has
reported in sworn testimony that British army medical personnel were
instructed by their authorities to rediagnose any disease which
occurred (and was not supposed to) as a result of the mandatory
vaccination. What good are their statistics? They are used to
manipulate the public trust.
Not Prevent Disease
World health records
from England, Germany, Italy, Mexico, the Philippines, British India,
and more document the devastating epidemics that followed mass
vaccination. The worst smallpox disaster occurred in the Philippines
after 10 years (1911-1920) of a U.S. compulsory program that
administered 25 million vaccinations to its population of 10 million.
The result: 170,000 cases of smallpox and more than 75,000 deaths.
History past and present is replete with similar tragedies.
"Education" by vaccine producers and their supporters always
omits incriminating facts.
The London Times
began three weeks of coverage with a front-page article entitled "Smallpox
vaccine 'triggered Aids virus'" in May of 1987. Newsworthy
enough, but the U.S. media reported nothing. The greatest amounts of
people with immune deficiency are located in areas where the World
Health Organization (WHO) vaccination programs are most intense. It is
not at all surprising that the combination of poor living conditions
and immune suppression via vaccination has resulted in mass illness.
Good health is the
result of multiple stress factors: nutrition, personal hygiene,
environmental, nurturing social relationships, etc. As we build up and
break down, the body eliminates waste material through our lungs, skin
pores, bowels, kidneys, etc. The less well people are or the more
waste products produced (the result of overtaxing the body's systems),
the more discomfort they may feel from these processes. When needed,
bacteria are "called" out of their natural balance to where
waste materials have accumulated in order to decompose, recycle them
and sanitize the area.
It is important to
understand that wastes are present before the bacteria arrive.
Bacteria are present in great numbers in the second and third stages
of disease. Bacteria do not cause dis-ease. Disease creates an
environment favorable to the proliferation of bacteria; it demands
that they multiply. Dis-ease is not something to be cured; it is cure.
It is considered
"normal" for vaccinated children to experience earaches and
sore throats. Even with lowered vitality, their bodies seek a quick
route out (i.e., through the skin, ears, tonsils) to expel the toxic
vaccine material and resulting waste from the vaccines' damage.
Antibiotics suppress symptoms and drive toxins deeper into the body,
thus complicating elimination. Vaccines lower immune response, but the
absence of medically-acknowledged symptoms is not a sign of better
health. Conversely, lowered vitality -- the norm in vaccinated
children -- is never called a symptom.
supposedly "by dis-ease" are often malnourished, force-fed,
medicated, vaccinated and already have degenerative disease. It is not
the dis-ease that is dangerous, it is the prior and continued (mis)treatment
that weakens the child to such a degree that a simple detoxification
can threaten his or her life. The view that dis-ease kills is what we
call "The Last Straw" Theory of Disease. It negates the
essential factors that influence health.
With all the new
iatrogenic (doctor-caused) diseases, we've decided to name one also.
Patient For Life Syndrome (PFLS) begins when a healthy 8-week-old is
given the first vaccination that sickens him or her and initiates the
syndrome: vaccination - earache - antibiotic; vaccination - sore
throat - antibiotic; etc. Each additional vaccine further weakens the
child, thus setting up the condition for a lifetime of medical
intervention. Is it any wonder we are suffering with allergies,
asthma, skin, immune, nerve, and brain disorders?
Dr. Rosenow (Journal
of Infectious Diseases, 1914) published his experiments with
bacteria in which he took strains from different disease sources and
put them into a uniform medium. Soon, there was no difference between
them. He concluded that bacteria are not different species but that
they have the capacity to transmute to adapt to their environment.
Fifty years earlier, in "Notes on Nursing," Florence
Nightingale wrote this enlightened statement, "There are no
specific diseases. There are specific disease conditions."
The rubella vaccine is
particularly crippling in adult women, causing rheumatoid arthritis,
chronic rubella, immune deficiency, and more. Yet New York State
legislature recently passed a law to require revaccination with
measles, mumps and rubella of all college students born after 1956. We
are now told that the vaccines that eliminated disease were
"relatively ineffective." Well, which is it?
Medical schools are
funded by drug companies that are profit-making businesses. Why do we
expect to get unbiased information from their students and promoters?
Would you go to a butcher to find out about vegetarianism? Even caring
doctors who have not thought out this issue for themselves continue to
mislead people to believe that the medical theories are facts.
The medical mainstream
influences us with fear that can overshadow our logic, intelligence
and protective instinct. Vaccine proponents insinuate that without
them and their "miracles" we will perish. It takes emotional
support to withstand the indoctrination. But more parents are making
informed choices even under the tremendous pressure from authorities
and well-meaning friends and families. It is sad that most parents are
bullied, strong-armed, sweet-talked, intimidated, or coerced into
giving uninformed consent and getting it done in a hurry. Vaccination
is not emergency medicine.
choice requires taking time to find out the facts and acknowledging
our feelings. Meeting other responsible adults and their unvaccinated
children can offer a real life picture of what good health looks like
and how we can use our natural abilities (the dis-ease process) to
maintain and regain best health.
