to the Contradictions between Medical Science and Immunization Policy

Last Revision: May 2001
there a legitimate controversy?
my son was set to begin his routine vaccination series at age 2
months, I didn’t know there were any risks associated with immunizations.
But the clinic's flyer contained a contradiction: my child’s chances
of a serious adverse reaction to the DPT vaccine were one in 1750,
while his chances of dying from pertussis were one in several million.
When I pointed this out to the physician, he angrily disagreed,
and stormed out of the room mumbling, “I guess I should read that
[flyer] sometime...” Soon thereafter I learned of a child who had
been permanently disabled by a vaccine, so I decided to investigate
for myself. My findings have so alarmed me that I feel compelled
to share them; hence, this report.
authorities credit vaccines for disease declines, and assure us
of their safety and effectiveness. Yet these assumptions are directly
contradicted by government statistics, published medical studies,
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control
(CDC) reports, and the opinions of credible research scientists
from around the world. In fact, infectious diseases declined steadily
for decades prior to mass immunizations, doctors in the U.S. report
thousands of serious vaccine reactions each year including hundreds
of deaths and permanent disabilities, fully vaccinated populations
have experienced epidemics, and researchers attribute dozens of
chronic immunological and neurological diseases that have risen
dramatically in recent decades to mass immunization campaigns.
of studies published in the world’s leading medical journals have
documented vaccine failure and serious adverse vaccine events, including
death. Dozens of books written by doctors, researchers, and independent
investigators reveal serious flaws in immunization theory and practice.
Yet, incredibly, most pediatricians and parents are unaware of these
findings. This has begun to change in recent years, however, as
a growing number of parents and healthcare providers around the
world are becoming aware of the problems and questioning mass mandatory
immunization. There is a growing international movement away
from mass mandatory immunization. This report introduces some
of the information that provides the basis for the movement.
point is not to tell anyone whether or not to vaccinate, but rather,
with the utmost urgency, to point out some very good reasons why
everyone should examine the facts before deciding whether or not
to submit to the procedure. As a new parent, I was shocked to discover
the absence of a legal mandate or professional ethic requiring pediatricians
to be fully informed of the risks of vaccination, let alone to inform
parents that their children risk death or permanent disability upon
being vaccinated. I was equally dismayed to see first-hand the prevalence
of physicians who are, if with the best of intentions, applying
practices based on incomplete—and in some cases, outright mis—information.
report is only a brief introduction; your own further investigation
is warranted and strongly recommended. You may discover that this
is the only way to get an objective view, as the controversy is
a highly emotional one.
word of caution: Many have found pediatricians unwilling or unable
to discuss this subject calmly with an open mind. Perhaps this is
because they have staked their personal identities and professional
reputations on the presumed safety and effectiveness of vaccines,
and because they are required by their profession to promote vaccination.
But in any event, anecdotal reports suggest that most doctors have
great difficulty acknowledging evidence of problems with vaccines.
The first pediatrician I attempted to share my findings with yelled
angrily at me when I calmly brought up the subject. The misconceptions
have very deep roots.
Federal government VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System)
was established by Congress under the National Childhood Vaccine
Injury Compensation Act of 1986. It receives about 11,000 reports
of serious adverse reactions to vaccinations annually, which include
as many as one to two hundred deaths, and several times that number
of permanent disabilities.  VAERS officials
report that 15% of adverse events are “serious” (emergency room
trip, hospitalization, life-threatening episode, permanent disability,
death). Independent analysis of VAERS reports has revealed that
up to 50% of reported adverse events for the Hepatitis B vaccine
are “serious.” 
While these figures are alarming, they are only the
tip of the iceberg. The FDA estimates that as few as 1% of serious
adverse reactions to vaccines are reported,
 and the CDC admits that only about 10% of such events
are reported. 
In fact, Congress has heard testimony that medical students
are told not to report suspected adverse events. 
National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC, a grassroots organization
founded by parents of vaccine-injured and killed children) has conducted
its own investigations.
 It reported: “In New York, only one out of 40 doctor's
offices confirmed that they report a death or injury following vaccination.”
In other words, 97.5% of vaccine related deaths and disabilities
go unreported there. Implications about medical ethics aside (federal
law directs doctors to report serious adverse events
 ), these findings suggest that vaccine deaths and
serious injuries actually occurring may be from 10 to 100 times
greater than the number reported.
pertussis (often referred to as “whooping cough”), the number of
vaccine-related deaths dwarfs the number of disease deaths, which
have been about 10 annually for many years according to the CDC,
and only 8 in 1993, one of the last peak-incidence years (pertussis
runs in 3-4 year cycles; no none knows why, but vaccination rates
have no such cycles). When you factor in under-reporting, the vaccine
may be 100 times more deadly than the disease. Some argue that this
is a necessary cost to prevent the return of a disease that would
be more deadly than the vaccine. But when you consider the fact
that the vast majority of disease decline this century preceded
the widespread use of vaccinations (pertussis mortality declined
79% prior to vaccines), and the fact that rates of disease declines
remained virtually unchanged following the introduction of mass
immunization, present day vaccine casualties cannot reasonably be
explained away as a necessary sacrifice for the benefit of a disease-free
the vaccine-related-deaths story doesn’t end here. Studies internationally
have shown vaccination to be a cause of SIDS
 (SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, is a “catch-all”
diagnosis given when the specific cause of death is unknown; estimates
range from 5,000 to 10,000 cases each year in the US). One study
found the peak incidence of SIDS occurred at the ages of 2 and 4
months in the U.S., precisely when the first two routine immunizations
are given,  while another found a clear
pattern of correlation extending three weeks after immunization.
Another study found that 3,000 children die within 4 days of vaccination
each year in the U.S. (amazingly, the authors reported no SIDS/vaccine
relationship), while yet another researcher’s studies led to the
conclusion that at least half of SIDS cases are caused by vaccines.
studies suggesting a causal relationship between SIDS and vaccines
were quickly followed by vaccine-manufacturer-sponsored studies
concluding that there is no relationship between SIDS and vaccines;
one such study claimed that there was a slightly lower incidence
of SIDS in vaccinees. However, many of these studies were called
into question by yet another study that found “confounding” had
erroneously skewed the results of these studies in favor of the
At best, there is conflicting evidence. But shouldn't
we err on the side of caution? Shouldn't any credible correlation
between vaccines and infant deaths be just cause for meticulous,
widespread monitoring of the vaccination status of all SIDS cases?
Health authorities have chosen to err on the side of denial rather
the mid 1970's Japan raised their vaccination age from two months
to two years; their incidence of SIDS dropped dramatically;  they went from an infant mortality
ranking of 17 to first in the world (i.e., Japan had the lowest
infant death rate when infants were not being immunized). England’s
vaccination rate temporarily dropped to about 30% at about the same
time following media reports of vaccine-related brain damage. Infant
mortality dropped substantially for about 2 years, then rose again
in close correlation to rising immunization rates in the late 1970’s.
Despite these experiences, the medical community maintains a posture
of denial. Coroners don’t check the vaccination status of SIDS victims,
and unsuspecting families continue to pay the price, unaware of
the dangers and denied the right to make an informed choice.
and CDC admissions about the lack of adverse event reporting suggests
that the total number of adverse reactions actually occurring each
year may actually fall within a range of 100,000 to a million (with
“serious” events being approximately 20% of these). This concern
is underscored by a study revealing that 1 in 175 children who completed
the full DPT series suffered “severe reactions,”  and a Dr.'s report for attorneys stating that
one in 300 DPT immunizations resulted in seizures.
actually saw a drop in pertussis deaths when vaccination rates dropped
to 30% in the mid 70's. Swedish epidemiologist B. Trollfors’ study
of pertussis vaccine efficacy and toxicity around the world found
that “pertussis-associated mortality is currently very low in industrialised
countries and no difference can be discerned when countries with
high, low, and zero immunisation rates were compared.” He also found
that England, Wales, and West Germany had more pertussis fatalities
in 1970 when the immunization rate was high than during the last
half of 1980, when rates had fallen. 
cost us more than just the lives and health of our children. The
U.S. Federal Government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
(NVICP) has paid out over $1.2 billion since 1988 to the families
of children injured and killed by vaccines,  with money that comes from a tax on vaccines
that vaccine recipients pay. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical companies
have a captive market; vaccines are legally mandated in all 50 U.S.
states (though legally avoidable in most; see Myth #9), yet these
same companies are “immune” from accountability for the consequences
of their products. Furthermore, they have been allowed to use “gag
orders” as a leverage tool in vaccine damage legal settlements to
prevent disclosure of information to the public about vaccination
dangers. Such arrangements are clearly unethical; they force an
uninformed American public to pay for vaccine manufacturer's liabilities,
while ensuring that this same public will remain ignorant of the
dangers of their products. This arrangement also diminishes any
incentive that manufacturers might have to produce safer vaccines
(after all, when the vaccine causes a death or injury, they don’t
have to pay for it; they still get their profit).
is important to note that insurance companies, who do the best liability
studies, refuse to cover vaccine reactions. Profits appear to dictate
both the pharmaceutical and insurance companies’ positions.
causes significant death and disability at an astounding personal
and financial cost to uninformed families.”
are very effective...”
medical literature has a surprising number of studies documenting
vaccine failure. Measles, mumps, small pox, pertussis, polio and
Hib outbreaks have all occurred in vaccinated populations.
 In 1989 the CDC reported: “Among school-aged children,
[measles] outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination levels
of greater than 98 percent.
 [They] have occurred in all parts of the country,
including areas that had not reported measles for years.”  The CDC even reported a measles
outbreak in a documented 100% vaccinated population.  A study examining this phenomenon concluded,
“The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise
to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized
persons.”  A more recent study found that
measles vaccination “produces immune suppression which contributes
to an increased susceptibility to other infections.”
 These studies suggest that the goal of complete
“immunization” may actually be counter-productive, a notion underscored
by instances in which epidemics followed complete immunization of
entire countries. Japan experienced yearly increases in small pox
following the introduction of compulsory vaccines in 1872. By 1892,
there were 29,979 deaths, and all had been vaccinated.
 In the early 1900’s, the Philippines experienced
their worst smallpox epidemic ever after 8 million people received
24.5 million vaccine doses (achieving a vaccination rate of 95%);
the death rate quadrupled as a result.
 Before England’s first compulsory vaccination law
in 1853, the largest two-year smallpox death rate was about 2,000;
in 1870-71, England and Wales had over 23,000 smallpox deaths.  In 1989, the country of Oman
experienced a widespread polio outbreak six months after achieving
complete vaccination.  In the U.S. in
1986, 90% of 1300 pertussis cases in Kansas were “adequately vaccinated.”  72% of pertussis cases in the 1993 Chicago outbreak
were fully up to date with their vaccinations. 
suggests that vaccination is an unreliable means of preventing disease.”
are the reason for low disease rates in the U.S. today...”
to the British Association for the Advancement of Science, childhood
diseases decreased 90% between 1850 and 1940, paralleling improved
sanitation and hygienic practices, well before mandatory vaccination
programs. The Medical Sentinel recently reported, “from 1911 to
1935, the four leading causes of childhood deaths from infectious
diseases in the U.S. were diphtheria, pertussis, scarlet fever,
and measles. However, by 1945 the combined death rates from these
causes had declined by 95 percent, before the implementation of
mass immunization programs.”
at best, vaccinations can only be examined only for their relationship
to the small, remaining portion of disease declines that occurred
after their introduction. Yet even this role is questionable, as
pre-vaccine rates of disease mortality decline remained virtually
the same after vaccines were introduced. Furthermore, European countries
that refused immunization for small pox and polio saw the epidemics
end along with those countries that mandated it; vaccines were clearly
not the sole determining factor. In fact, both small pox and polio
immunization campaigns were followed by significant disease incidence
increases. After smallpox vaccination was being mandated, smallpox
remained a prevalent disease with some substantial increases, while
other infectious diseases simultaneously continued their declines
in the absence of vaccines. In England and Wales, smallpox disease
and vaccination rates eventually declined simultaneously over a
period of several decades between the 1870’s and the beginning of
World War II.  It is thus impossible to say
whether or not vaccinations contributed to the continuing declines
in disease death rates, or if the declines continued unabated simply
due to the same forces which likely brought about the initial declines—improvements
in sanitation, hygiene and diet; better housing, transportation
and infrastructure; better food preservation techniques and technology;
and natural disease cycles. Underscoring this conclusion was a recent
World Health Organization report which found that the disease and
mortality rates in third world countries have no direct correlation
with immunization procedures or medical treatment, but are closely
related to the standard of hygiene and diet.
 Credit given to vaccinations for our current disease
incidence has simply been grossly exaggerated, if not outright misplaced.
advocates point to incidence rather than mortality statistics as
evidence of vaccine effectiveness. However, statisticians tell us
that mortality statistics are a better measure of disease than incidence
figures, for the simple reason that the quality of reporting and
record keeping is much higher on fatalities.
 For instance, a survey in New York City revealed
that only 3.2% of pediatricians were actually reporting measles
cases to the health department. In 1974, the CDC determined that
there were 36 cases of measles in Georgia, while the Georgia State
Surveillance System reported 660 cases.
 In 1982, Maryland state health officials blamed
a pertussis epidemic on a television program, “D.P.T.—Vaccine Roulette,”
which warned of the dangers of DPT; but when former top virologist
for the U.S. Division of Biological Standards, Dr. J. Anthony Morris,
analyzed the 41 cases, he confirmed only 5, and all had been vaccinated.  Such instances as these demonstrate the fallacy
of incidence figures, yet vaccine advocates tend to rely on them

and 20th century infectious disease declines.”
is based on sound immunization theory and practice...”
clinical evidence for vaccines is their ability to stimulate antibody
production in the recipient. What is not clear, however, is whether
or not antibody production constitutes immunity. For example, agamma
globulin-anemic children are incapable of producing antibodies,
yet they recover from infectious diseases almost as quickly as other
children.  Furthermore,
a study published by the British Medical Council in 1950 during
a diphtheria epidemic concluded that there was no relationship between
antibody count and disease incidence; researchers found resistant

Natural immunization is a complex interactive process involving
many bodily organs and systems; it cannot be replicated by the artificial
stimulation of antibodies.
also indicates that vaccination commits immune cells to the specific
antigens in a vaccine, rendering them incapable of reacting to other
infections. Immunological reserves may thus actually be reduced,
causing a generally lowered resistance.
component of immunization theory is “herd immunity,” the notion
that when enough people in a community are immunized, all are protected.
As Myth #2 showed, there are many documented instances showing just
the opposite—fully vaccinated populations have experienced epidemics.
With measles, this actually seems to be the direct result of high
 In Minnesota, a state epidemiologist concluded
that the Hib vaccine increases the risk of illness when a study
revealed that vaccinated children were five times more likely to
contract meningitis than unvaccinated children.
vaccination has never actually been clinically proven to be effective
in preventing disease, for the simple reason that no researcher
has directly exposed test subjects to diseases (nor may they ethically
do so). The medical community’s gold standard, the double blind,
placebo-controlled study, has not been used to compare vaccinated
and unvaccinated people, and so the practice remains unscientifically
proven. Furthermore, it is important to recognize that not everyone
exposed to a disease develops symptoms (indeed, only a tiny percentage
of a population need develop symptoms for an epidemic to be declared).
Thus, if a vaccinated individual is exposed to a disease and doesn’t
get sick, it is impossible to know whether the vaccine worked, because
there is no way to know if that person would have developed symptoms
if he or she had not been vaccinated. It is also worth noting that
outbreaks in recent years have recorded more disease cases in vaccinated
children than in unvaccinated children.
another surprising aspect of immunization practice is the “one size
fits all” aspect. An 8 pound 2 month old baby receives the same
dosage as a 40 pound five year old child. Infants with immature,
undeveloped immune systems may receive five or more times the dosage,
relative to body weight, as older children. Furthermore, the number
of “units” within doses has been found in random testing to range
from ½ to 3 times what the label indicates; manufacturing quality
controls appear to tolerate a rather large margin of error. “Hot
Lots”—vaccine lots associated with disproportionately high death
and disability rates—have been repeatedly identified by the NVIC,
but the FDA consistently refuses to intervene to prevent further
unnecessary injury and deaths. In fact, individual vaccine lots
have never been recalled due to their greater incidence of adverse
reactions. However, the rotavirus vaccine was taken off the market
a few months after being introduced when it caused bowel obstructions
in many recipients. Incredibly, the FDA and CDC knew about this
problem prior to licensing the vaccine, but both organizations still
gave their unanimous approval.
vaccines are administered with the assumption that all recipients—regardless
of race, culture, diet, genetic makeup, geographic location, or
any other characteristic—will respond the same. This was perhaps
never more dramatically disproved than in Australia's Northern Territory
a few years ago, where stepped-up immunization campaigns in native
aborigines resulted in an incredible 50% infant mortality rate.
 One must wonder about the lives of the survivors,
too; if half died, surely the other half did not escape unaffected.
as troubling was a recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine
reporting that a substantial number of Romanian children were contracting
polio from the vaccine. Researchers found a correlation with injections
of antibiotics. A single injection within one month of vaccination
raised the risk of polio eight times, two to nine injections raised
the risk 27-fold, and 10 or more injections raised the risk 182
other factors not accounted for in vaccination theory will surface
unexpectedly to reveal unforeseen or previously overlooked consequences?
We cannot begin to fully comprehend the scope and degree of the
danger until public health officials begin looking and reporting
in earnest. In the meantime, entire countries’ populations are unwitting
gamblers in a game that many might very well choose not to play
if they were given all the rules in advance.
of the assumptions upon which immunization theory and practice are
based are unproven or have been proven false in their application.”
diseases are extremely dangerous...”
are they, really?
childhood infectious diseases have few serious consequences in today's
modern world. Even conservative CDC statistics for pertussis during
1992-94 indicate a 99.8% recovery rate. In fact, when hundreds of
pertussis cases occurred in Ohio and Chicago in the fall 1993 outbreak,
an infectious disease expert from Cincinnati Children's Hospital
said, “The disease was very mild, no one died, and no one went to
the intensive care unit.”
vast majority of the time, childhood infectious diseases are benign
and self-limiting. They usually impart lifelong immunity, whereas
vaccine-induced immunity is only temporary. In fact, the temporary
nature of vaccine immunity can create a more dangerous situation
in a child’s future. For example, the new chicken pox vaccine has
an effectiveness estimated at 6 - 10 years. If effective, it will
postpone the child's vulnerability until adulthood, when death from
the disease, while still rare, is 20 times more likely than in childhood.
“Measles parties” used to be common in Britain; if a child got measles,
other parents in the neighborhood would rush their kids over to
play with the infected child, to deliberately contract the disease
and develop immunity. This avoids the risk of infection in adulthood
when the disease is more dangerous, and provides the benefits of
an immune system strengthened by the natural disease process.
half of measles cases in the late 1980's resurgence were in adolescents
and adults, most of whom were vaccinated as children,  and the recommended
booster shots may provide protection for less than six months.
 Some healthcare professionals are concerned that
the virus from the chicken pox vaccine may “reactivate later in
life in the form of herpes zoster (shingles) or other immune system
disorders.”  Dr. A. Lavin of the Dept. of
Pediatrics, St. Luke's Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, strongly
opposed licensing the new vaccine, “until we actually know...the
risks involved in injecting mutated DNA [the vaccine herpes virus]
into the host genome [children].”  The truth is, no one knows,
but the vaccine is now licensed, recommended by health authorities,
and quickly becoming mandated throughout the country.
only are most infectious diseases rarely dangerous, they can actually
play a vital role in the developing a strong, healthy immune system.
Persons who have not had measles have a higher incidence of certain
skin diseases, degenerative diseases of bone and cartilage, and
certain tumors, while absence of mumps has been linked to higher
risks of ovarian cancer. Anthroposophical medical doctors recommend
only the tetanus and polio vaccines; they believe contracting the
other childhood infectious diseases is beneficial in that it matures
and strengthens the immune system.

New England states reported increases in polio one year after the
Salk vaccine was introduced, ranging from more than doubling in
Vermont to Massachusetts’ astounding increase of 642%; other states
reported increases as well. The incidence in Wisconsin increased
by a factor of five. Idaho and Utah actually halted vaccination
due to the increased incidence and death rate. In 1959, 77.5% of
Massachusetts’ paralytic cases had received 3 doses of IPV (injected
polio vaccine). During 1962 U.S. Congressional hearings, Dr. Bernard
Greenberg, head of the Dept. of Biostatistics for the University
of North Carolina School of Public Health, testified that not only
did the cases of polio increase substantially after mandatory vaccinations—a
50% increase from 1957 to 1958, and an 80% increase from 1958 to
1959—but that the statistics were deliberately manipulated by the
Public Health Service to give the opposite impression.
 It is important to understand that the polio vaccine
was not universally accepted, at least initially. Despite this,
polio declined both in European countries that refused mass vaccination
as well as in those that employed it.
to researcher-author Dr. Viera Scheibner, 90% of polio cases were
eliminated from statistics by health authorities’ redefinition of
the disease when the vaccine was introduced, while in reality the
Salk vaccine was continuing to cause paralytic polio in several
countries at a time when there were no epidemics being caused by
the wild virus. For example, cases of viral and aseptic meningitis,
which have symptoms similar to polio, were routinely diagnosed and
recorded as polio before the vaccine, but were distinguished and
removed from polio statistics after the vaccine. Also, the number
of cases needed to declare an epidemic was raised from 20 to 35,
and the requirement for inclusion in paralysis statistics was changed
from symptoms that lasted for 24 hours to symptoms lasting 60 days
(many polio victims’ paralysis was temporary). It is no wonder that
polio decreased radically after vaccines—at least on paper. In 1985,
the CDC reported that 87% of the cases of polio in the U.S. between
1973 and 1983 were caused by the vaccine, and later declared that
all but a few imported cases since were caused by the vaccine—and
most of the imported cases occurred in fully vaccinated individuals.
Salk, inventor of the IPV, testified before a Senate subcommittee
that nearly all polio outbreaks since 1961 were caused by the oral
polio vaccine. At a workshop on polio vaccines sponsored by the
Institute of Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
Dr. Samuel Katz of Duke University cited the estimated 8-10 annual
U.S. cases of vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) in people
who have taken the oral polio vaccine, and the [four year] absence
of wild polio from the western hemisphere. Jessica Scheer of the
National Rehabilitation Hospital Research Center in Washington,
D.C., pointed out that most parents are unaware that polio vaccination
in this country entails “a small number of human sacrifices each
year.” Compounding this contradiction are low adverse event reporting
and the NVIC’s experiences with confirming and correcting misdiagnoses
of vaccine reactions, which suggest that the actual number of VAPP
“sacrifices” may be 10 to 100 times higher than that cited by the
CDC. For these reasons, the live polio virus is no longer in widespread
be sure, polio as it was known in the first half of the 20th
century does not exist today. However, declines following polio
peaks in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s had been underway again

up by health authorities. In Europe, polio declined in countries
that both embraced and rejected the vaccine.”
child had no reaction to the vaccines, so there is nothing to worry
documented long term adverse effects of vaccines include chronic
immunological and neurological disorders such as autism, hyperactivity,
attention deficit disorders, dyslexia, allergies, cancer, and other
conditions, many of which barely existed before mass vaccination
programs. Vaccine ingredients include known toxicants and carcinogens
such as thimersol (a mercury derivative), aluminum phosphate, formaldehyde
(for which the Poisons Information Centre in Australia claims there
is no acceptable safe amount that can be injected into a living
human body), and phenoxyethanol (commonly known as antifreeze).
Some of these ingredients are gastrointestinal toxicants, liver
toxicants, respiratory toxicants, neurotoxicants, cardiovascular
and blood toxicants, reproductive toxicants, and developmental toxicants,
to name a few of the known dangers. Chemical ranking systems rate
many vaccine ingredients among the most hazardous substances, and
they are heavily regulated. Even microscopic doses of some of these
ingredients are known to be able to cause serious injury. In addition,
some vaccine mediums used in the production of vaccines contain
human diploid cells originating from human aborted fetal tissue,
a fact that might affect many people’s vaccination choices—if they
only knew this was the case.
historian, researcher and author Harris Coulter, Ph.D. explained
that his extensive research revealed childhood immunization to be
“causing a low-grade encephalitis in infants on a much wider scale
than public health authorities were willing to admit, about 15-20%
of all children.” He points out that the sequelae [conditions known
to result from a disease] of encephalitis [inflammation of the brain,
a documented adverse effect of vaccination]: autism, learning disabilities,
minimal and not-so-minimal brain damage, seizures, epilepsy, sleeping
and eating disorders, sexual disorders, asthma, crib death, diabetes,
obesity, and impulsive violence are precisely the disorders which
afflict contemporary society. Many of these conditions were formerly
relatively rare, but they have become more common as childhood vaccination
programs have expanded. Coulter also points out that pertussis toxoid
is used to induce encephalitis in lab animals. The pertussis vaccine’s
ability to cause brain damage is thus not only known, but relied
upon by clinical researchers studying brain disorders.
German study found correlations between vaccinations and 22 neurological
conditions including attention deficit and epilepsy. Another dilemma
is that viral elements in vaccines may persist and mutate in the
human body for years, with unknown consequences. Millions of children
are partaking in an enormous, crude experiment; and no sincere,
organized effort is being made by the medical community to track
the negative side effects or to determine the long-term consequences.
Since long-term studies on the adverse effects of vaccines are virtually
non-existent, their widespread use in the absence of informed consent
and adequate safety testing constitutes medical experimentation.
As the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons and the National
Vaccine Information Center have pointed out, this is a violation
of the first principle of the Nuremberg Code, “the centerpiece of
Classen, MD, PhD, founder of Classen Immunotherapies and developer
of vaccine technologies, conducted epidemiological studies around
the world and found vaccines to be the cause of 79% of insulin type
I diabetes in children under 10. The increase risk ranged from 9%
with the diphtheria vaccine to 50% with the Hepatitis B vaccine.
According to Classen, CDC data confirms his findings. However, the
implications of Classen’s findings go well beyond diabetes, as his
comment in a 1999 issue of the British Medical Journal points out:
“The incidence of many other chronic immunological diseases, including
asthma, allergies, and immune mediated cancers, has risen rapidly
and may also be linked to immunisation.”  The diabetes findings may be only the tip of
studies in the U.S. and England suggest that vaccines cause autism.
 Mercury poisoning and autism have nearly identical
and a single day’s vaccination regimen may inject 41
times the level of mercury known to cause harm.  California’s autism rate has
mushroomed 1000% over the past 20 years, with dramatic increases
following the introduction of the MMR vaccine in the early 1980’s.
England had dramatic autism increases beginning in the 1990’s, following
the introduction of the MMR vaccine there. Some infants receive
100 times the EPA’s maximum allowable amount of mercury through
vaccines. In January, 2000, the Journal of Adverse Drug Reactions
reported that the MMR vaccine was not adequately tested and should
not have been licensed. Further reinforcing the suspected vaccine-autism
connection is the fact that many physicians using a systematic mercury-detoxification
regimen with autistic patients have seen dramatic improvements in
the health and behavior of their patients.  Today, one out of every 150 children are affected
by autism, according to the National Vaccine Information Center.
In the early 1940’s, prior to the introduction of most vaccines
in current use, it was considered a rare condition that few doctors
would ever encounter in their practice.

of compelling correlations with many serious chronic conditions.
Doctors can’t explain the dramatic rise in many of these diseases.”
are the only disease prevention option available...”
parents feel compelled to take some disease-preventing action for
their children. While there is no 100% guarantee anywhere, there
are viable alternatives. Historically, homeopathy has proven many
times to be more effective than allopathic medicine in the treatment
and prevention of disease, with risk of harmful side effects. In
a U.S. cholera outbreak in 1849, allopathic medicine saw a 48-60%
death rate, while homeopathic hospitals had a documented death rate
of only 3%. 
Roughly similar statistics still hold true for cholera
Recent epidemiological studies show homeopathic remedies as equaling
or surpassing standard vaccinations in preventing disease. There
are reports in which populations that were treated homeopathically
after exposure had a 100% success rate—none of the treated caught
the disease. 
are homeopathic kits available for disease prevention.
 Homeopathic remedies can also be taken only during
times of increased risk (outbreaks, traveling, etc.), and have proven
highly effective in such instances. And since these remedies have
no toxic components, they have virtually no side effects. In addition,
homeopathy has been effective in reversing some of the disability
caused by vaccine reactions, not to mention many other chronic conditions
with which allopathic medicine has had little success.
safe and effective alternatives to vaccination have been available
for decades. (However, they have been systematically attacked and
suppressed by the medical establishment.)”
are legally mandated and unavoidable...”
laws vary from state to state. While every state legally requires
vaccines, every state also has one or more legal exemptions from
vaccines. School and health officials will seldom volunteer exemption
information, and are often mistaken when they do, so it is important
to check the laws in your state to find out exactly what the requirements
are. Each state offers one or more of the following three kinds
Medical Exemption: All 50 states in the U.S. allow for a medical
exemption. However, few pediatricians check for indications of increased
risk before administering vaccines, so it is advisable for parents
to research this matter for themselves if they have reason to believe
that their child may be predisposed to vaccine reactions. Epilepsy,
severe allergies, and a previous adverse reaction in a child or
sibling are but a few of the many conditions in child or family
history which may increase the chances of an adverse reaction, and
thus may qualify for a medical exemption from one or more required
vaccines. In general, though, medical exemptions are difficult to
get, may be available only to those who have already had a serious
vaccine reaction or who have a family history of serious vaccine
reactions, may be granted only for the specific vaccine believed
to have caused a previous reaction, and may be valid only as long
as the condition giving rise to the exemption persists (i.e., may
Religious Exemption: 48 states allow for a religious exemption (all
but MS and WV). A state’s laws may state that membership in an established
religious organization is required. However, this requirement has
been held unconstitutional in New York federal courts; personal
religious beliefs are sufficient for a religious exemption, regardless
of which religious organization you belong to, or whether or not
you belong to an organized religion at all.  ,
 In one case, the plaintiffs were awarded money
damages when the court found that the state had violated their civil
rights by denying them a religious exemption.
Philosophical or Personal Exemption: Approximately 17 states allow
parents to refuse vaccination for personal or philosophical reasons.
is worth noting that exempted children may be banned from attending
schools during local outbreaks. But all schools, public or private,
must comply with state vaccination laws and honor legal exemptions.
best source for a copy of your state's vaccination laws is state
health officials. A phone call to the state Department of Epidemiology
or Immunization (the specific name varies from state to state) may
be all that it takes to get a copy mailed to you. Or, for a small
fee, the NVIC and New Atlantean Press will sell you a copy of your
state’s immunization laws (see contact information at the end of
this article). Statutes can be searched on the internet (for example,
see www.findlaw.com), but these sources many not always reflect
very recent changes in the law, if there have been any. Law libraries
and lawyers are, of course, a good source as well.
exemptions from vaccinations are available for many—but not all—U.S.
health officials always place the public’s health above all other
history is riddled with documented instances of deceit portraying
vaccines as mighty disease conquerors, when in fact vaccines have
had little or no discernable impact on—or have even delayed or reversed—pre-existing
disease declines. The United Kingdom's Department of Health admitted
that vaccination status determined the diagnosis of subsequent diseases:
Those found in vaccinated patients received alternate diagnoses;
hospital records and death certificates were falsified. Today, many
doctors still refuse to diagnose diseases in vaccinated children,
and so the “Myth” about vaccine success persists.
Conflicts of interest are the norm in the vaccine industry. Members
and Chairs of the FDA and CDC vaccine advisory committees own stock
in drug companies that make vaccines; individuals on both advisory
committees own patents for vaccines under consideration or affected
by the decisions these committees make. The CDC grants conflict-of-interest
waivers to every member of their advisory committee a year at a
time, allowing full participation in the discussions leading up
to a vote by every member whether or not they have a financial stake
in the decision.
Concerns over vaccine adverse effects and conflicts of interest
led the American Society of Physicians and Surgeons to issue a Resolution
to Congress calling for a “moratorium on vaccine mandates and for
physicians to insist upon truly informed consent for the use of
vaccines.” Approved by unanimous vote at the AAPS October 2000 annual
meeting, the resolution made references to the “increasing numbers
of mandatory childhood vaccines, to which children are…subjected
without …information about potential adverse side effects”; the
fact that “safety testing of many vaccines is limited and the data
are unavailable for independent scrutiny, so that mass vaccination
is equivalent to human experimentation and subject to the Nuremberg
Code, which requires voluntary informed consent”; and the fact that
“the process of approving and ‘recommending’ vaccines is tainted
with conflicts of interest.”
In an October 1999 statement to Congress, Bart Classen, M.D.,
M.B.A., founder and CEO of Classen Immunotherapies and developer
of vaccine technologies, stated, “It is clear…that the government's
immunization policies… are driven by politics and not by science.
I can give numerous examples where employees of the US Public Health
Service …appear to be furthering their careers by acting as propaganda
officers to support political agendas. In one case…employees of
a foreign government, who were funded and working closely with the
US Public Health Service, submitted false data to a major medical
journal. The true data indicated the vaccine was dangerous however
the false data that was submitted indicated there was no risk. An
employee of the NIH who manages large vaccine grants jointly published
a misleading letter about the subject with one of these foreign
civil servants. As you are aware it is illegal to falsify data from
research funded by the US government.” Dr. Classen recommended
that Congress hire a special prosecutor “to determine if
public health officials are following the laws enacted to ensure
vaccines are safe” and to determine “if public health officials
along with manufacturers are misleading the public about the safety
of these products.” 
France, 15,000 French citizens have sued their government over adverse
Hepatitis B vaccine reactions.
 Former public health officials there are serving
prison sentences following findings that they did not follow the
law to ensure the safety of the vaccine, and school-age Hep B vaccination
has been discontinued. U.S. military personnel may be even worse
off: “…four letters from the FDA/Public Health Service…clearly reveal
that the anthrax vaccine was approved for marketing without the
manufacturer performing a single controlled clinical trial.”
 Clinical trials are, of course, absolutely critical
to determining the safety and effectiveness of any pharmaceutical
product. Military personnel have been, and continue to be, unwitting
subjects in an unethical experiment.
of the public health officials who determine vaccine policy profit
substantially from their policy decisions.”
the December 1994 Medical Post, Canadian author of the best-seller
Medical Mafia, Guylaine Lanctot, M.D., stated, “The medical
authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on the immune
system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are actually changing
our genetic code through vaccination...100 years from now we will
know that the biggest crime against humanity was vaccines.” After
critically analyzing literally ten’s of thousands of pages of the
vaccine medical literature, Dr. Viera Scheibner concluded that “there
is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent
any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence
that they cause serious side effects.”  Dr. Classen has stated, “My data proves that
the studies used to support immunization are so flawed that it is
impossible to say if immunization provides a net benefit to anyone
or to society in general. This question can only be determined by
proper studies which have never been performed. The flaw of previous
studies is that there was no long-term follow up and chronic toxicity
was not looked at. The American Society of Microbiology has promoted
my research...and thus acknowledges the need for proper studies.”  To some these
may seem like radical positions, but they are not unfounded. The
continued denial and suppression of the evidence against vaccines
only perpetuates the “Myths” of their “success” and, more importantly,
their negative consequences on our children and society. Aggressive
and comprehensive scientific investigation into adverse vaccine
events is clearly warranted, yet immunization programs continue
to expand in the absence of such research. Manufacturer profits
are enormous, while accountability for the negative effects is conspicuously
absent. This is especially sad given the readily available safe
and effective alternatives.
positions asserted above are not coming from a handful of fringe
lunatics; entire professional organizations are speaking out. Criticisms
of vaccines are being sounded by an increasing number of credible
and reputable scientists, researchers, investigators, and self-educated
parents from around the world. Instead, it is public health officials
and die-hard vaccine advocates (many of whom have a financial stake
in the outcome of the debate) who are beginning to lose credibility
by refusing to acknowledge the growing body of evidence and to address
the very real, serious, documented problems.
the race is on. There are over 200 new vaccines being developed
 for everything from birth control to cocaine addition.
Some 100 of these are already in clinical trials. Researchers are
working on vaccine delivery through nasal sprays, mosquitoes (yes,
mosquitoes), and the fruits of “transgenic” plants in which vaccine
viruses are grown. With every adult and child on the planet a potential
recipient of vaccines administered periodically throughout their
lives, and every healthcare system and government a potential buyer,
it is little wonder that countless millions of dollars are spent
nurturing the growing multi-billion dollar vaccine industry. Without
public outcry, we will see more and more new vaccines required of
us all. And while profits are readily calculable, the real human
costs are ignored or suppressed.
your personal vaccination decision, make it an informed one; you
have that right and responsibility. It is a difficult issue, but
there is more than enough at stake to justify whatever time and
energy it takes.
