Vaccination: Cure or Curse?

(for footnotes, please see print version)

In the pursuit of knowledge and the quest to overcome the many challenges of life on earth, mankind has discovered ways to alleviate a wide spectrum of inconveniences, ranging from fetching water from a stream with a bucket and disposing of refuse out the back door, to tending the sufferings of a child sick with chicken pox. Thus, we now have indoor plumbing, garbage disposals, and immunizations. With the advent of improved sanitation in various countries around the world, the incidence of diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, small pox, TB, polio, cholera, thyphoid and whooping cough have consistently decreased.

Government statistics show how vaccines were introduced as diseases were already being conquered by public health measures such as improved sanitation.

Vaccination, which claims to prevent disease by intentionally introducing it in gross quantities into the body, in contrast to sanitation practices which attempts to keep disease vectors out of the body, has not been observed to have universally beneficial health effects, and in Western Europe only tetanus and oral polio vaccine are compulsory.

Our children are dear to us and we naturally try our best to protect them from harm in any way that is in our power. There have always been a small percentage of children who didn’t survive the visitation of a childhood illness such as the measles or mumps. Homeopathy has had a history of successfully treating these conditions as well as whooping cough and other serious childhood illnesses for the past two hundred years without side effects. Given that fact that vaccinations are neither free of side-effects nor 100% effective, could a return to reliance on homeopathic and other natural methods provide a better alternative to the growing list of vaccinations in use in America today? A summary of the side effects and efficacy of vaccinations, often inappropriately called immunizations, is the topic of this article. The true effects of vaccinations on our health have been quite difficult for our medical and governmental health systems to properly analyze for a number of reasons:

Due to improving hygiene practices during the same period, declines in disease occurrence often beginning prior to vaccine introduction has often been attributed to vaccines. Only careful epidemiological studies which include other relevant public health practices and a tight time-line can isolate the specific factors which reduced disease.

Contradictory findings of various vaccine efficacy studies has increased the confusion. Since there is much money to be made on vaccination of an entire population of millions, apparently beneficial studies are promoted in isolation and the truth is sometimes even ‘enhanced’ in the course of industry funded data gathering.

Bias in the medical profession’s tendency to diagnose and report diseases when vaccines are begun or stopped in a community has further obscured the truth. When a child’s medical history includes the fact that he has been ‘immunized’ against a certain disease, the physician is unlikely to diagnose that disease when it appears, especially in the altered form it presents due to the vaccination. Colleagues would consider this an ‘incorrect’ diagnosis even though this judgement would be on purely theoretical grounds.

Specific deficiencies in studies evaluating vaccine side effects have led to a false appearance of relative safety:

observation period too short: The period of observation was limited to two days in most studies and in a few studies observation continued for up to two weeks. Delayed reactions and long terms effects are difficult to document even with careful observation, but are being brought forward through the exhaustive research and observation of earnest health practitioners independent of the initial research which was designed to gain approval of vaccinations.

inappropriate control groups: Control groups in vaccination studies were also vaccinated. A true control group would be unvaccinated (e.g. vaccinated vs. unvaccinated).

There is a striking contrast between the initial theories behind vaccination and more recent theories based on observations made since their introduction. These observations, ranging from comparisons of individual cases to comparisons of whole populations, lend considerable weight to the theory that vaccinations may be largely responsible for the sudden appearance of our present epidemic of autoimmune deficiency, allergy, learning disability and even violence in America.

Vaccine-Contents:

Vaccines introduce known toxins into the body:

Ethylene glycol (antifreeze)

Phenol (carbolic acid)

Formaldehyde (carcinogen)

Aluminum (associated with Alzheimer’s, seizures, cancer)

Thimerosal (mercury): causes brain injury and autoimmune disease

Neomycin and Streptomycin (antibiotics): cause allergic reaction

Growth medium (animal or human tissue: monkey kidney, chicken embryo, embryonic guinea pig cells, calf serum or human diploid cells: dissected organs of aborted human fetuses in the case of rubella, hepatitis A, and chickenpox vaccines)

History

Historical facts demonstrate the questionable effectiveness of mass immunizations. The advent of the microscope gave us the ability to rest a narrow gaze on bits and pieces of our internal environment. Pasteur’s view that the visible microbes associated with disease were the primary causative factor won the debate with Bechamp who had observed more patiently that most microbes in fact changed in form from symbiotic to pathogenic forms depending on the conditions of the terrain or mileau of the internal environment in which they were living. Though Pasteur admitted on his death bed that Bechamp was right, the terrain is everything our modern medical system is the legacy of his earlier theory that the microbe is all important. Pathogenic organisms are often extremely difficult to grow in vitro, requiring precisely the right culture media and growth conditions. Isn’t this true in the body as well. Many pathogens are found in each of our bodies throughout life, yet they rarely cause infection or disease. Why is this so, unless we must first provide the conditions for their growth before they can respond by producing disease colonies. When a contagious disease spreads, the entire population that is exposed is not affected in a given epidemic. Why, unless the terrain for that disease must already be present to prepare the soil for the disease to be expressed?

Many researchers since the time of Bechamp have independently made the same observations of the symbiotic to pathogenic transformation of various organisms. It is accepted, for example that Candida species normally exist at about 2% of the gut flora in a friendly yeast form. When Candida becomes a problem is when it grows root-like rhizomes which penetrate the gut wall (seeking nutrition lacking in the intestinal mileau, and finding it present in our unhealthy cells and decaying tissue). It can then progress further in this disease form to produce a new generation of yeast cells which can even invade the blood and other tissues (systemic Candidiasis) if the conditions of immunosuppression and decaying matter needed for their growth are found. Unfortunately, independent researchers, such as Enderlein, Rife and Naesans, who have spent their lives observing other living organisms and their life cycles have been largely barred from sharing their work with the rest of the scientific community simply because their observations do not fit the still-accepted theory of Pasteur. Any observations which do not fit are simply called artifacts in the conventional view, and since microbes are viewed with chemical stains which kill the organisms, no possibility of observing dynamic changes are possible. Only with such techniques as Live Cell, Darkfield and Phase Contrast microscopy can a patient observer begin to see the tremendously dynamic microbial world within our blood and our tissues.

Later, antibodies were discovered, which led to the premise that antibodies protect from the invasion of foreign materials into the body. The theory of vaccination then was to cause the body to make antibodies before being exposed to disease. The problem is that the vaccination is itself a disease, although a modified form of the original one.

Dr. Moskowitz theorizes, based on our present understanding of the immune system, how the measles virus interacts with the body:

Once inhaled by a susceptible person, the measles virus then undergoes a long period of silent multiplication, first in the tonsils, adenoids, and accessory lymphoid tissue of the nasopharynx; later in the regional nodes of the head and neck; and eventually, several days later, it passes into the blood and enters the spleen, the liver, the thymus, and the bone marrow, the visceral organs of the immune system. Throughout this ‘incubation’ period, which lasts from 10-14 days, the patient feels quite well, and experiences few or no symptoms.

By the time the first symptoms of measles appear, circulating antibodies are already detectable in the blood, and the height of the symptomatology coincides with the peak of the antibody response. In other words, the ‘illness’ is simply the definitive effort of the immune system to clear the virus from the blood…the virus is eliminated by sneezing and coughing, i.e. via the same route through which it entered in the first place.

It is evident that the process of mounting an acute illness like the measles, no less than recovering from it, involves a general mobilization of the entire immune system, including inflammation of the previously sensitized tissues at the portal of entry…of which the production of circulating antibodies is only one.

Dr. Moskowitz goes on to say that a sudden appearance of a foreign material in the bloodstream actually drives this toxic material deeper into the body, into the very cells. The vaccination has induced an antibody response isolated from the body’s normal mechanism of response and recovery. The body’s front line defense, the immune system, is left to be in constant response, unable to complete its task of clearing the foreign material. This chronic defense reaction eventually fatigues the immune system, which grows weaker and weaker. Recall that a child who has had the measles will not have it again – the immune system has been tested, tried and matured through its experience. This cannot be said for a vaccinated child, as will be seen below.

Moskowitz believes, and many other researchers and practitioners concurr, that some of the new diseases plaguing our society, autoimmune (the body attacks itself or more likely is trying to attack the foreign material that has become a part of the cell) diseases, allergy, and cancer, are a result of this compromise of the immune system begun in the tenderest of years.

In terms of the Five Phase understanding of health, vaccination is often one of the first major stresses to the newborn child in our culture, which introduces toxic and allergenic material directly into the tissues. If the child’s terrain had been balanced (Phase 5) prior to this, it is almost certain to shift it into Phase 4, which represents a need for cleansing the extracellular connective tissue which surrounds every cell in the body. In many cases, balance is never recoverred, unless homeopathic methods are initiated then or later to antidote the negative effects of the vaccination. The child may remain in Phase 4, with various allergic tendencies, for a short time or for many years, depending upon the vaccine and the strength of various body systems. Eventually, the scales are tipped, and weak or over-stressed tissue areas can no longer react or compensate. The immune system stops attempting to maintain a clear, healthy connective tissue. Inflammation stops, and the condition becomes chronic. This is Phase 3. Eventually as the connective tissue becomes so clogged with accumulated debris on top of the initial insult, the cells themselves start to get worn down. They fail to repair the damage done by 10,000 free radicals each day. This is Phase 2 in which high fevers, rapid aging or other permanently damaging deterioration begins to take place. Finally, this leads into Phase 1, in which even the energy metabolism of the cell becomes poisoned. In this inefficient metabolic state, the tissue moves into a chronic degenerative mode, which can include cancer. Autoimmune conditions also involve tissue that has degenerated into Phase 1, yet with an immune system that can still mount the energetic responses to attempt to clear the debris. Most adult Americans are in Phase 1 in at least one tissue by the time they are in their 20’s, while most Europeans, who receive fewer vaccinations, remain biologically ‘younger.’

The nervous system is as much compromised by vaccination as is the immune system. Encephalitis, inflammation of the brain, is one of the primary side effects of vaccination. In fact, the pertussis vaccine is the stimulus of choice to induce encephalitis in experimental animals.

It is a known fact the the body’s nerves continue to develop at different rates throughout our lives, some not fully mature until age 45! The nerves of the body are still developing an insulating sheath after we are born. This insulation protects the brain and the rest of the nervous system from short circuiting, similar to electric wires. Some nerves don’t even begin this process until 8 months old and the greater majority are completed within 15 years. The last to be completed are are the areas of the brain that have to do with memory and the higher activities of the mind. This sensitive aspect of brain development which is taking place at the time of vaccination helps to explain some of the potential longterm side effects that have been identified.

The fact that the primary side effects of vaccination are found in the nervous system and the immune system also makes sense embryologically. When the body develops from one cell to many, it forms 5 tissue layers which function as the body’s major functional Systems, according to Dr. Swartwout.

System Name Dominant Organs Route of Elimination

1 Integrity Skin Skin

2 Communication Nervous, Endocrine no (inflammation)

3 Processing Liver, Digestive, Pancreas, Lung Liver, Mucosa

4 Support Immune, Blood, Skeletal no (inflammation)

5 Flow Muscle, Urogenital Kidneys

Injection of significant quantities of disease matter into the deep tissues of the body exposes all these tissue layers to the disease vector. While three of these Systems have outlets for elimination directly to the outside of the body, the two which contain the nervous system and the immune system do not. 

Side Effects

The side effects of vaccination can be divided into two groups:

immediate reactions: Immediate reactions include fevers, allergic reactions, and convulsions. These can range from mild to severe. The symptoms tend to be more severe if the child already tends to have allergies or if any family member or relative has allergies, asthma, digestive problems, epilepsy or other chronic health problems. Autoimmune tendencies play a large part in a child’s vulnerability to physical, mental and emotional damage. These tendencies were not as common fifty years ago before the introduction of compulsory vaccination.

delayed reactions and permanent disabilities: Delayed and permanent reactions include epilepsy, mental retardation, learning disabilities and paralysis. These reactions are a result of allergic encephalitis (inflammation of the brain). Prior to World War I encephalitis was rare. After the 1922 smallpox vaccination program, encephalitis was found in epidemic proportions and it has been on the rise ever since.

Dr. Harris Coulter presents a theory of the long term effects of vaccines in his extensively documented book The Assault on the American Child: Vaccination, Sociopathy and Criminality. He recognizes a syndrome of brain insult and injury that could be a result of vaccination. The constellation of effects from this syndrome include allergies, autism, dyslexia, learning disabilites, behavior disorders, and antisocial syndromes. Dr. Coulter maintains that an allergic response to the vaccine disrupts the physical development of the child’s nerves which leads to brain inflammation and brain damage. He speculates that the 50% of children who experience fever (accompanied by fussiness or screaming) after a DTP shot actually have a subtle form of encephalitis and subsequent minimal brain damage. He states that even a child napping after a vaccination could actually be in a mild seizure. Dr. Swartwout points out that the developmental effects of inflammation in the nervous system may be similar to those caused by electromagnetic fields, which overstimulate the nerve cells. This causes them to stop growing, and thus they fail to reach their intended destination in the brain. This is the opposite of what happens in fetal alcohol syndrome, where alcohol suppresses nerve activity, leading to nerves that keep growing until they overshoot their objective destinations, still waiting to receive the stimulation that signals they have properly ‘hooked up.’

Coulter traces the increase of autism, minimal brain damage, learning and behavior disorders, beginning with autism’s first appearance in the early 1940’s. The springboard of his theory is the synchronicity of the widespread use of vaccines (whooping cough) during and after World War II and the appearance of these new syndromes.

About 8 to 10 years after the appearance of autism, learning disabilites began to emerge. The cause of autism still remains a mystery to the medical profession. Initially, all the cases came from very well educated, intelligent, economically privileged families. One or both parents belonged to the medical profession, and were thus privy to the latest developments of science. Though the vaccinations were not compulsory at the time, these parents may have insisted on the best protection medicine could provide for their children. Now that vaccinations are compulsory, or ‘free’ through industry support from taxes, the incidence of autism cuts across all social and economic barriers.

Similarly, widespread allergies began emerging in the 1950’s. Today at least 50% of Americans suffer from some type of allergy including skin allergy, rhinitis, asthma and food allergies. Four-fifths of autistic children and adults have severe allergies.

Dr. Coulter provides ample evidence that encephalitis, especially from vaccination, can give rise to an allergic state, while conversely the existence of an allergic state predisposes to the development of encephalitis after vaccination. We are talking about the beginning point of disease, referred to by Dr. Swartwout as Phase 4 terrain in which a need for tissue cleansing produces allergy symptoms.

In 1969, four years after an increase in immunization, a new group of neurologically defective 4 and 5 years were being reported. A National Health Interview Survey showed that between 1969 and 1981 the incidence of activity-limiting chronic conditions increased 44%. By 1980 the overall number of disabled children had doubled.

Other changes that appear to be linked to the increase in vaccination include: 

47% increase in childhod respiratory disease 

65% increase in asthma 

80% increase in mental and nervous system disorders

300% increase in personality and other non-psychotic mental disorders (including behaviorial disorders, drug abuse and hyperactivity)

120% increase in diseases of eyes and ears (especially otitis media)

129% increase in reported hearing loss in both ears

Intelligence

Statistics also show a decline in the intelligence of our society since the 1940’s when vaccinations became more widespread:

Army and college entrance exams had overall lower scores in the 60’s than the 40’s

1970 recruits were significantly inferior in intelligence to recruits between 1941 and 1945

1980 SAT scores were the lowest in the history of the test

High school students performed so poorly in math and science that a comparison could not be made with Russian or Japanese children

the Census Bureau conducted a survey in 1986 revealing:

9% of adults 20-40 years old were illiterate

40% of adults could not read a map

80% could not calculate a tip or read a bus schedule

in 1976 examinations given to applicants for teaching jobs in Florida, it was shown that 50% could not read at the 10th grade level or perform math at an 8th grade level. These were college graduates!

Crime

Dr. Coulter links the post encephalitic syndrome to the criminal personality. He investigated many cases of children vaccinated in the 40’s and coming of age in the 60’s, as well as those affected by the renewed immunzation compaign in the 60’s who have come of age in the 80’s. The increase of violence in our society during this period is well known:

The murder rate doubled in the U.S. between 1960 and 1980 (from 4 to 8 per 100,000), making us the worst of any industrialized country. During this period, rates in Western Europe and Japan remained stable at 1 per 100,000.

The prison population has doubled since 1970: 250 in prision per 100,000. In 1850 it was 29 per 100,000

The crime rate among boys increased signficantly between 1945 and 1958. Researchers were at a loss to explain the reasons for this increase. Dr Coulter points out that the first group in 1945 were only subject to smallpox vaccinations, whereas in 1958 were given vaccinations for diphtheria, smallpox, pertussis, polio, and tetanus. While the crime rate was 100 per 100,000 population in the 1940’s, the rate has risen with increasing use of vaccinations to reach 800 per 100,000 in the 1980’s.

History

The following are a matter of public record for the success of vaccinations:

England 1796: Edward Jenner developed the first vaccination from cowpox to combat the scourge of smallpox, yet the more vaccination increased, the more smallpox increased as well. In 1839 there was an epidemic killing 22,081 despite vaccination. Compulsory vaccination, initiated in 1853, continued despite increasing incidence of smallpox. In 1872, the worst epidemic ever killed 44,840. The people of England fought against the government until mandatory vaccination was finally abolished in 1948. England has not had an epidemic since vaccination was discontinued.

Japan began compusory vaccination in 1872. Smallpox continued to increase steadily each year until 1892 when they had 164,774 cases of smallpox with 29,979 deaths. They had never before had an outbreak of this magnitude.

Australia banned smallpox vaccination when two children died from the vaccinations. They have had only three deaths from smallpox in 15 years.

Germany in 1939 started compulsory diphtheria vaccination and after everyone was inoculated the rate soared to 150,000 cases, a 17% increase with a 600% rise in the mortality rate. When the vaccinations were stopped after the war there was a marked decrease in the disease despite the desolate conditions. At this same time unvaccinated Norway had only 50 cases.

In America, polio increased 300% in those states with compulsory vaccination:

Tennesee

1958: 119 cases before compulsory vaccination

1959: 386 cases after compulsory vaccination

Ohio

1958: 17 cases before compulsory vaccination

1959: 52 cases after compulsory vaccination

Connecticut

1958: 45 cases before compulsory vaccination

1959: 123 cases after compulsory vaccination

North Carolina

1958: 78 cases before compulsory vaccination

1959: 313 cases after compulsory vaccination

:Summary of the vaccinations

Polio: There has been no epidemic in America since 1954. All cases sinces 1979 have been the result of foreign travel or caused by the oral vaccine itself. Oral live vaccine causes polio in the recipient and people they contact, as the virus is transferred through fecal matter. Side effects of the killed virus are rare allergic reactions with neurologic symptoms, fevers, and paralysis. The killed virus vaccine has lower levels of antibody production and more associated reactions, but there is a new vaccine that seems to be more effective in producing antibodies. Homeopaths have reported success in treating cases of paralytic polio.

In underdeveloped countries where sanitation is poor polio is widespread. Almost 100% of children develop antibodies due to infection in infancy. Paralytic cases are few, the majority being minor illnesses, and epidemics are unknown.3 It is travel in a foreign country that might cause you to opt for vaccination.

Immunization campaigns are associated with dramatic increases in polio cases.

In 1938, the only laboratory animal that could contract polio by experimental inoculation was the monkey. The monkeys’ blood sugar levels went as low as 50 mg while rabbits were always over 100 mg. The researchers could not infect rabbits with polio until they lowered their blood sugar in a way that also occurs in humans after we eat refined foods, especially starch, sugar, caffeine or chocolate. Instead of vaccination, polio and other viral conditions can be prevented by avoiding junk food.

American Journal of Pathology, January, 1941 reported in Diet Prevents Polio, Benjamin P. Sandler, M.D., 1951.

Whooping Cough (Pertussis): This vaccination has been consistently reported to have the most dramatic and permanent damage to those inoculated. Reactions include fever, persistent crying, encephalitis, epilepsy, retardation and death.

The disease is associated with a specific bacterium that afflicts children. The cough is the identifying symptom: comes in paroxysms…preceded by a feeling of apprehension or anxiety and tightness in the chest … short explosive expirations in rapid succession followed by a long crowing inspiration…child’s face may become red or blue, the eyes bulge, and the tongue protrude…followed by…vomitting. It usually lasts for 6 weeks regardless of the treatment with some of the complications being cerebral hemmorrhage, convulsions, brain damage, pneumonia, emphysema, or collapsed lung. Pneumonia is the most frequent cause of death in children under 3 years old. Children in Great Britian and Sweden no longer receive the pertussis vaccine. Japan postponed the vaccine until the child is two years old. The United States Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act to provide compensation to parents of children injured by the vaccine. Dr. Coulter has written an entire book of case studies and pertinent statistics to convey the hazards of giving this vaccination to our children.

Pertussis still occurs commonly in childhood. Countries with poor sanitation and lack of availability of proper nutrition and medical care for attending to the possible complications have a greater incidence of pertussis. In European countries that have discontinued vaccination programs, pertussis has been found to be a cyclic disease with a rise in cases every 3-4 years, even in a highly vaccinated population.

According to Dr. Coulter in his book A Shot in the Dark the disease seems to be milder now in both vaccinated and unvaccinated populations. He reports on a study done in England in 1976 with 252 hospitalized cases of pertussis There was no significant difference between immunized and nonimmunized cases in the duration of illness or complications. A similar study with the same conclusion was reported from West Germany.

Severe cases of whooping cough have been reported in both vaccinated and unvaccinated populations.

Many studies point to the fact the the effect of the vaccine wears off in a few years. A 1988 study from England found that efficacy had fallen to about 40% after seven years. Is it worth the risks of the vaccination itself? Remember, the disease itself will give life-long immunity!

A survey was done on a group of children treated homeopathically for pertussis. These children experienced relatively mild cases of pertussis compared to the children treated with antibiotics.

A last look at contraindications for receiving this vaccine as extensively noted by Dr. Coulter. A child who would be vulnerable to the worst of complications from the pertussis vaccine had a history of convulsions or neurological disease in the child or in the immediate family; a history of previous cerebral irritation; a strong history of severe allergies in the child or immediate family; prematurity or low birth weight; chronic illness or recent severe illness; a brother, a sister, a mother, or a father who had a severe reaction to the DPT shot; or a severe reaction by the child himself to a previous DPT shot. Any child younger than 2 years old is at a higher risk. Even manufacturers agree that the pertussis vaccine should be given to children age seven years and older.

Diphtheria: This disease, caused by a bacterium, although starting commonly enough with a sore throat, is signified by the development of a membrane that may cover the throat and may cause it to be difficult or impossible to breathe. The complications can include:

infection within the heart which could lead to heart failure

transitory paralysis to the muscles of the limbs, throat, eyes, or respiration.

This is a very rare disease. Before the introduction of vaccinations, between 1900 and 1920 the mortality rate from diphtheria declined 50%. During the 40’s there were between 15,000 and 30,000 cases with a steady decrease to a 1980’s level of 0 to 5 cases.

The vaccine is of questionable effectiveness. In Germany during the war, diptheria vaccination was mandatory resulting in a 17% increase in the number of cases and a 600% rise in the mortality rate. When vaccinations were stopped after the war there was a marked decrease despite the desolate conditions. In 1969, an epidemic in Chicago occurred in a population where 47% of the cases showed full immunity (i.e. had antibodies in the blood already).

The homeopathic community of practitioners can address these situations individually without the potential side effects.

Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR): Vaccinations for these diseases were introduced in the 1960’s. At this time they are given in a combined shot of live viruses. Two observations of the cases since the 60’s are:

The age distribution has changed. This disease, once a common childhood disease, has become a disease of adolescents and young adults. Unfortunately, these diseases cause more complications in this age group.

Atypical forms of these diseases have appeared, making it difficult to diagnose and leaving others vulnerable to exposure.

When these viral diseases are contracted in the normal manner, they leave the patient with permanent immunity from contracting the same disease in the future.

Measles: Symptoms of measles are cold symptoms, cough, irritated eyes, and high fever, with the appearance of a rash on the fourth day of illness. These symptoms reach their peak at about 6 days. The complications of measles are not common but include ear infections, pneumonia, infection of the lymph nodes, and encephalitis. At this time the disease is milder than in the past and deaths are rare. Encephalitis is reported in one out of 1000 cases, although this report is considered exaggerated by Dr. Neustaedter . Of these cases of encephalitis, 25 to 30% show symptoms of brain damage.

Homeopathy is well equipped to prevent of complications of measles. In fact, many homeopaths consider measles to be a normal and necessary stimulus for the maturation of a child’s immune system.

Measles, twenty plus years after the introduction of the vaccine, now consistently occur among vaccinated populations. Serious reactions are being reported throughout the medical literature including encephalitis, retinopathy and blindness, muscle paralysis and sensory nerve deficit (Guillain-Barre syndrome), and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.

From the group of fully immunized children a cluster of symptoms, a new illness, is emerging. These symptoms include: exaggerated rash, muscle weakness, peripheral edema, severe abdominal pain, and persistent vomiting.

Recall how our immune and elimination systems work, as described above by Dr. Moskowitz and Dr. Swartwout. Live virus vaccines possibly force the body to store the virus within the cell and could eventually lead to autoimmune responses as a result of prolonged immune stimulation. Measles is historically a common childhood disease. There are no cogent arguments for the need of vaccination.

Mumps: Another common and mild childhood disease, not even noticed in 30% of the cases prior to widespread vaccine use. The symptoms progress from a fever, headache and tiredness to, within 24 hours, an earache near the ear lobe and finally swollen glands. This takes 1 to 6 days.

Symptoms shift, with adolescents and adults experiencing more serious effects. Infection of the reproductive glands and encephalitis occur in 5 per 1000 cases. Deaths are extremely rare with mumps but more likely to occur with adults. It is estimated that 50% of deaths associated with mumps are over age 20.

The most alarming result of this vaccination is a statistical shift in the population that are now contracting the disease. The older age groups are being affected more frequently, increasing the rate of serious complications.

Side effects of the vaccine are similar to the measles vaccine: fevers, seizures, encephalitis, and severe atypical mumps disease.

Rubella: A mild childhood disease requiring no treatment. It consists of a fever, rash and tiredness, lasting only a few days. However, if contracted by a pregnant woman, rubella can cause deformities, stillbirths, and miscarriages.

It is a matter of some controversy as to whether immunizing children will protect an adult from this disease. Many recognized experts argue against routine immunization. Dr. Schoenbaum conducted a study in 1975 that found most persons who contract rubella as adults do so through contact with other adults. Another study affirmed the gradual reduction in an individual’s antibodies soon after immunzation. This information clearly points to the idea of immunizing only women of child bearing age before pregnancy.

As with the advent of the measles vaccine, the rubella immunization has produced a population contracting rubella that is now older and more susceptible to complications.

Side effects of rubella vaccination include: encephalitis, meningitis, muscle paralysis, sensory nerve deficits (Guillain-Barre syndrome) and arthritis symptoms which in some cases develop into rheumatoid arthritis in later years.

Anthrax: The anthrax vaccine was initially pushed by President George Bush Sr., during his presidency, for the military. Now, under his son’s presidency, an anthrax scare pervades as the vaccine is urged for the public.

Bioport, the lone manufacturer of the anthrax vaccine, has as one of its major investors, the Carlyle Investment Group, one of the key supporters of both Bush campaigns. The family is also a member of the Carlyle Investment Group.

Avemtis Corporation is a major manufacturer of the now popular “flu vaccine” that the public is now rushing to get for fear of a dreaded “killer” flu virus. Aventis profits can be traced back to supporters of the Bush presidency. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was, at one time, the head of Searle Pharmaceuticals.

“You only have to look at the number of invested people on hospital, medical and government health advisory boards to see the conflict of interest,” the report continued.

Recently, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled that the military could not force soldiers to take the anthrax vaccine, equating such force as treating the troops like “guinea pigs.”

Legalities

Legally, puncturing the skin is an operation and can therefore be considered malpractice if performed without consent. In America, it is unconstitutional to force vaccinations on the public, and yet there are many cases of families being forced, sometimes with physical coercion, to receiving these potentially hazardous disease products. If you search, you may be able to find a doctor who is willing to be educated on the subject and will write a waiver. If all else fails, and you wish to defend your health freedom, you may have to stand up for your constitutional rights through a challenge in court. As Article 4 of the Constitution states, the right of the people to be secure in their persons. . .shall not be violated…
