Polio cases peaked around 1952 with just under 58,000 cases and 3,145 deaths. When the Polio vaccine was rolled out 3 years later Polio was already declining significantly with around half the amount of cases (28,985) and deaths (1,043).
The OPV vaccine that is still used in many places has caused outbreaks of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) and polio outbreaks due to circulating vaccine-derived polioviruses. These outbreaks are not caused by the wild strain of polio virus. They are caused by the weakened virus used in vaccines that changes over time and begins to act like the wild virus.
However, for the last 20 years in the United States we have used the inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) instead of OPV. Since it’s not a live virus it doesn’t carry the risk of VAPP.
On the other hand, “IPV induces very low levels of immunity in the intestine. As a result, when a person immunized with IPV is infected with wild poliovirus, the virus can still multiply inside the intestines and be shed in the faeces, risking continued circulation.” Also “IPV does not stop transmission of the virus”
-Recent data show that protection from acellular pertussis vaccines is not long-lasting. Antibody levels wane rapidly following vaccination.
-Consistent with this T cell skewing, acellular vaccines did not prevent colonization or transmission following challenge in nonhuman primates.
The DTP vaccine has been associated with a 5 fold higher mortality rate than being unvaccinated.
Those who receive the DTaP vaccine will be “more susceptible to pertussis throughout their lifetimes”.
Vaccination with varicella vaccine leads to increased risk of shingles.
International Agency for Research on Cancer found that individuals who never had measles had a 66% increased rate of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and a 233% increased rate of Hodgkin Lymphoma.
A 22-year prospective study of over 100,000 individuals in Japan revealed that “measles and mumps, especially in case of both infections, were associated with lower risks of mortality from atherosclerotic CVD heart disease.
Vaccinated children are also at a higher risk for allergic rhinitis, eczema, learning disability, adhd, neurodevelopmental disorder and chronic illness than unvaccinated children.
In 2011 HHS paid the IOM to do a study on vaccine safety.
The IOM located science which “convincingly supports a causal relationship” for 14 of these serious injuries, including pneumonia, meningitis, hepatitis, MIBE (deadly brain inflammation a year after vaccination), febrile seizures, an anaphylaxis. The review found sufficient evidence to support “acceptance of a causal relationship” for 4 additional serious injuries.
The IOM, however, found the scientific literature was insufficient to conclude whether or not those vaccines caused 135 other serious injuries commonly reported after their administration, including:
Encephalitis, Encephalopathy, Infantile Spasms, Afebrile Seizures, Seizures, Cerebellar Ataxia, Ataxia, Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, Transverse Myelitis, Optic Neuritis, Neuromyelitis Optica , Multiple Sclerosis, Guillain- Barre Syndrome, to name just a few.
In a recent study comparing vaccinated vs unvaccinated children they found children who were vaccinated were
5x more likely to have autism
4x more likely to have allergies
13.8x more likely to have gastrointestinal issues
17.6x more likely to have asthma
20.8x more likely to have ADHD
27.8x more likely to have chronic ear infections
In another study done last year looking at health outcomes of vaccinated and unvaccinated they find “We can conclude that the unvaccinated children in this practice are not, overall, less healthy than the vaccinated and that indeed the vaccinated children appear to be significantly less healthy than the unvaccinated.”
The rate of chronic illness in children in the United States is up from 12.5% in 1986 to 54% now. I am not saying it is all due to vaccines but we went from giving kids 11 doses of vaccines by the time they were 18 to giving 72 doses now.
We have the highest mortality rate of pregnant women than any other developed country in the world.
“Despite spending more per capita of any country, the U.S. has one of the worst rates of infant mortality of all developed countries.”
“Every year twice the number of U.S. babies die on their first day alive than in all 27 European Union nations combined, although 1 million more are born there (4.3 million versus 5.3 million respectively).”
We have a problem. And no I don’t think vaccines are the entire cause of the problem. It’s many things including our food. But Why would we blindly trust the industry that outspends oil and gas 2:1 in lobbying, that has paid out BILLIONS in lawsuits for knowingly misrepresenting their products, for bribing doctors, for withholding information about their products from the FDA. The industry that knew for decades the product they sold to us to use on our babies bare skin everyday contained asbestos.
The only differences between vaccines and the other products produced and marketed by these companies is that vaccines don’t go through the same standard of safety testing as other drugs. No double blind placebo safety studies, and follow up periods as little as 48 hours. Vaccines are also the only product that can be produced and safety tested by the same company, be mandated to every citizen in the country, and then hold no liability for any damages caused.
To say vaccines are safe and effective and that the science is settled without even taking the time to read the science is ignorant. The science is never settled, but so far the science shows that vaccines are not always safe, nor are they always effective.
