In part 2 of our vaccine research, I will go over the American vaccine schedule and see how it compares to other countries. We will also go over death rates prior to vaccines, and discuss the effects the vaccines and other factors had on those death rates.
The United States is the most vaccinated country in the world. You would think that because of our high vaccination rates, we would also have the least disease outbreaks as well as the healthiest children, but that is simply not true. The Untied States has the highest infant mortality rates (IMR) out of all the 27 developed countries. A baby born in the US is almost three times more likely to die during their first year of life, than if they had been born in Finland or Japan.
Another interesting statistic to note, is that Mississippi (who does not allow non-medical exemptions to attend school) has the highest vaccine coverage in the US, and also the highest IMR. There are of course many factors to consider, but it does make you wonder. According to The Washington Post “The U.S. rate of 6.1 infant deaths per 1,000 live births masks considerable state-level variation. If Alabama were a country, its rate of 8.7 infant deaths per 1,000 would place it slightly behind Lebanon in the world rankings. Mississippi, with its 9.6 deaths, would be somewhere between Botswana and Bahrain.”
Notice where Finland and Japan fall on both graphs? If all of the vaccines on the US schedule are so vitally important, why aren’t the countries with the lowest number of vaccines suffering huge losses? According to one study from the National Institute of Health, the number of vaccines given by one year of age, directly relates to the number of infant deaths.
“It appears that at a certain stage in nations’ movement up the socio-economic scale—after the basic necessities for infant survival (proper nutrition, sanitation, clean water, and access to health care) have been met—a counter-intuitive relationship occurs between the number of vaccines given to infants and infant mortality rates: nations with higher (worse) infant mortality rates give their infants, on average, more vaccine doses. This positive correlation, derived from the data and demonstrated in Figures 1 and and2,2, elicits an important inquiry: are some infant deaths associated with over-vaccination?”
Are vaccines really conducive to better health? Were they even responsible for eradicating or reducing mortality from infectious disease? Let’s see what the data shows. One of the things I have noticed over the span of my vaccine research, is that all the graphs from “pro-vaccine” websites start around the 1940s-1950s. I believe this is very deceptive. When you zoom in on such a small window of data, it shows a relatively steep decline in deaths after a vaccine is introduced. But if you zoom out on that data, to show mortality rates starting in the late 1800s-early 1900s, you’ll notice a drastic decline of mortality from infectious diseases prior to the introduction of the vaccines. Case and point:
Pretty shady, right? But that’s not all. It turns out that ALL infectious diseases have a similar decline prior to the vaccine being introduced. Including the ones that no vaccine was ever administered for, like Scarlet Fever.
So, If vaccines aren’t really responsible for the decline in disease, then what was? The simple answer: Better sanitation and nutrition. Please take the time to watch this 5 minute video.
Gone are the days of throwing your chamber pot out into the street where children play. Now we bathe regularly, wash our hands after we use the restroom and have access to clean water anywhere we are in the country. The only places where there are still outbreaks of polio in the world, are places where people are still lacking in those necessities. They often bathe in the same water they drink. They don’t have access to a proper toilet. They are malnourished. And, above all, they are still using the oral polio vaccine in these countries. The oral polio vaccine is illegal to use in the US because it sheds in the feces of the recently vaccinated and was shown to be a major contributing factor in the spread of polio here in the US. Why do these developing countries not deserve the same standards we have here in America? Why are we vaccinating these poor malnourished babies with a vaccine that we know will contaminate their drinking water? A quote from Patricia Doyle, PhD “No one realizes that at the same time polio cases began to wane, the first world was improving sewage and water systems. I would liken the reduction in cases to improved potent water supplies and to improved sewage treatment. I remember in the early 1950’s the city of Yonkers, NY came to the suburb of Yonkers, Sherwood Park, east yonkers and actually required us to hook up to the sewer system. At that time our home was using a cess pool and well water. Many homes, mostly older, in my area used the cess pool and well water systems.
“Polio is actually spread via feces/oral route. I would wager that President Roosevelt got his polio swimming in the Hudson river which is where many of my neighbors got their polio. I remember seeing signs which read “No Swimming due to Polio” in Alpine NJ along beaches on the Hudson River. The Hudson was notorious for having raw sewage enter it.
“If polio vaccine is the sole reason for ending the spread of polio in the first world, then why hasn’t polio ended in India, the Congo and other countries? There have been countless polio vaccine campaigns year after year in Africa, India etc yet we keep hearing about outbreaks, currently, India and Africa have polio outbreaks. The answer is not vaccine but sanitation. In countries that have raw sewage entering the rivers, lakes etc where people use these same waterways for drinking and cooking the disease will never die away. The money spent on vaccine is only a fraction of what it would cost to put in decent sanitation which would include sewers and sewage treatment along with providing potable safe drinking water in the third world, so, consequently, the pharma industry with a lot to lose talks about the reduction of polio via vaccine. Ergo, the myth is perpetrated.”

What about smallpox? Smallpox was was the original vaccine, and has been hailed over the years as being a roaring success at vanquishing the disease. Again, historically, we find this to be untrue. And again, we find that the vaccine actually aided in the spread of the disease, as well as caused many deaths in and of itself. When you consider that the original smallpox vaccination consisted of cutting open a vein, and then smearing infected pus from a smallpox blister into the wound, Gandhi couldn’t have said this better:

Let’s backtrack a bit. Why does the US have the highest number of vaccines? This is a very easy question to answer: Why wouldn’t it? In 1986 a federal law was passed, protecting the drug manufacturers from being sued by the families of vaccine injured or killed children. The drug companies have zero liability. If your child is injured or killed by a vaccine, you have to petition a “vaccine court” and prove that the vaccine, in fact, caused your child’s health condition. The vaccine court isn’t really a court. There is no jury. You go through a lengthy process, and jump through hoops and hope that they will rule in your favor. Since this law was passed, more than $3 billion has been paid out to these families (including families of autistic children [see Hannah Poling]). Yet we hear over and over again “Vaccines are safe and effective.” The Supreme Court classifies vaccines as an “unavoidably unsafe” product. They are not safe for every person.
Not surprisingly, since the drug companies cannot be held liable for injuring your child or killing them, the vaccine schedule has more than tripled since 1986. Meanwhile, the vaccine industry has raked in billions of dollars each year. They get all the profit, with none of the accountability.
Our children are not being vaccinated on the same schedule that we were as children. Not by a long shot. When I was a kid, I got around 10-12 shots and that was considered safe enough to go to school. Now, if a child was vaccinated on that schedule, they would be considered a threat to public health. They would not be part of “the herd.” Why was this schedule adequate thirty years ago, but now we would have to sign an exemption to get our kids into school if they only get ten shots? Are they all necessary? Does a baby need to be vaccinated against Hepatitis B on it’s first day of life? Hepatitis B is only spread through unprotected sex and intravenous drug use. How many junkie baby hookers do you know? By the time these children are old enough to engage in those sort of risky behaviors, the vaccine would have long since worn off.
That brings us to our final lessons in this installment: Herd Immunity and Waning Vaccine Immunity. It used to be thought that if you got a vaccine, that you would have lifelong protection. Over time that was proven to be untrue, thus the increase in vaccine boosters. Unfortunately, that is also showing to be ineffective at providing lifelong protection. Herd Immunity was discovered by A W Hedrich in the early 1900s. According to Immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D.
“Early research performed by A.W. Hedrich has been deemed instrumental to the idea that herd immunity is readily attainable. Dr. Hedrich analyzed measles outbreaks occurring in Baltimore, MD every 2-3 years between 1900 and 1931. He found that just prior to a major outbreak in that city, the proportion of susceptible children under the age of 15 was about 45-50%. At the end of any outbreak, the proportion of still susceptible children never fell below 32%. Nevertheless, 95-97% of children experienced measles before they reached the age of 15.[iii] For this reason adults were immune from measles.
“The finding that a rather large number of susceptible children routinely escaped measles during any particular outbreak gave optimism to the United States Public Health Service that herd immunity works at a threshold, which is considerably less than 100%. An official prediction was made that measles would be swiftly eradicated in the USA as early as 1967 by establishing and maintaining this readily attainable threshold via mass vaccination, which already started in 1963. This prediction failed to materialize and measles epidemics in the U.S. did not stop in 1967. The concept that vaccine-based herd immunity is readily attainable for the purposes of rapid disease eradication appeared to be invalid.”
Not only is herd immunity based on natural immunity (which lasts a lifetime), but it has never been proven to be attainable through vaccination. According to Neurosurgeon, Dr. Russell Blaylock “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.”

Some final thoughts to consider:
– Vaccine induced immunity is temporary, at best. Lasting between 2-10 years.
-Natural immunity lasts a lifetime.
-Both vaccines and infectious disease carry the risk of injury or death, which may be greater for some than others.
-Historically, it would appear that vaccines had little to nothing to do with the decline of death rates from infectious disease. Rather, sanitation, nutrition and clean drinking water are responsible for lower death rates.
-Vaccines have been known to spread the disease they were supposed to prevent.
This concludes this installment of our vaccine research. I hope you learned a lot. In the next (and probably final) installment we will learn the risks associated with infectious disease and the potential adverse reactions that can be caused by vaccines and then weigh the risks of both. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share!
No one has died of measles in the U.S. in the last 12 years, 108 have died as a result of the adverse effects of the vaccine in that same time period.
