A SHOT IN THE DARK….
Trusting the Government or the leaders of any nation with your health and well being has always been a risky business.
There should be little doubt in your mind by now that profit alone is the main driving force behind any Government approved ‘immunisation programme’.
They care little for a nations health and welfare, ‘Health’ lobbyists entirely funded by pharmaceutical companies, dominate all debate with the result that all conflicting evidence is suppressed.
Government led Media advertising campaigns have effectively silenced any open, though evidence-based debate or dialogue, with derogatory language and negative political spin tactics.
This of course places anti-vaccine campaigners and writers firmly in the ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ camp and are seen as ‘untrustworthy’, the tried and tested method used to reinforce the lies and ultimately dangerous endorsements.
So when respected medical publications like The Lancet and the British Medical Journal have also published figures which dispute the ‘official’ claims, should the government and their tame physicians still be trusted with our health?
This is no longer a ‘Conspiracy Theory’ it appears, as historical data on the efficiency of vaccinations clearly shows that they are not responsible for the decline in disease at all.
In 1871-2 England, with 98% of the population aged between 2 and 50 vaccinated against smallpox, it experienced its worst ever smallpox outbreak with 45,000 deaths. During the same period in Germany, with a vaccination rate of 96%, there were over 125,000 deaths from smallpox.
In Germany, compulsory mass vaccination against diphtheria commenced in 1940, and by 1945, diphtheria cases were up from 40,000 to 250,000.
In 1967, Ghana was declared measles-free by the World Health Organisation after 96% of its population was vaccinated. In 1972, Ghana experienced one of its worst measles outbreaks with its highest ever mortality rate.
In the UK between 1970 and 1990, over 200,000 cases of whooping cough occurred in fully vaccinated children.
In the 1970s, a tuberculosis vaccine trial in India involving 260,000 people revealed that more cases of TB occurred in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated. (The Lancet)
In 1977, Dr. Jonas Salk, who developed the first polio vaccine, testified along with other scientists that mass inoculation against polio was the cause of most polio cases throughout the USA since 1961.
In 1979, Sweden abandoned the whooping cough vaccine due to its ineffectiveness. Out of 5,140 cases in 1978, it was found that 84% had been vaccinated three times! (BMJ)
The February 1981 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 90% of obstetricians and 66% of pediatricians refused to take the rubella vaccine.
In Oman between 1988 and 1989, a polio outbreak occurred amongst thousands of fully vaccinated children. The region with the highest infection rate had the highest vaccine coverage. The region with the lowest infection rate had the lowest vaccine coverage. (The Lancet)
In the New England Journal of Medicine July 1994 issue, a study found that over 80%of children under 5 years of age who had contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated.
In 1990, the Journal of the American Medical Association had an article on measles which stated, “Although more than 95% of school-aged children in the US are vaccinated against measles, large measles outbreaks continue to occur in schools and most cases in this setting occur among previously vaccinated children.”
So what are some of the true reasons for the decrease in disease in the last century?
From his book Health and Healing, Dr. Andrew Weil said it best with the following statement:
“The truth is, cholera, typhoid, tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough, etc, were in decline before vaccines for them became available – simply as the result of better methods of sanitation, sewage disposal, and distribution of food and water”.
