Our Mission: To preserve and disseminate the knowledge of Natural Medicine so people can make informed consent decisions regarding their health.
For every drug that benefits a patient, there is a natural substance that can achieve the same effect. ~Pfeiffer's Law~ Dr. Carl C. Pfeiffer, MD, PhD
Man-made drugs are created by synthesizing the bioactive substances (alkaloids, phytochemicals, nutrients) in plants. The pharmaceutical companies do not use the natural substances because they cannot be patented. The petrochemicals in man-made drugs and vaccines are toxins and are biochemically incompatible with the biochemistry of humans; thus the horrendous side effects, diseases, and deaths caused by pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines.
To sell chemotherapy as a 'therapy' is most likely the biggest deceit in the history of medicine. Whoever masterminded this chemo-torture deserves a monument in hell." —Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, MD
"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. Viera Scheibner
Orthomolecular Medicine: Orthomolecular Medicine (the right nutrients in the right amounts), commonly referred to as Nutritional Medicine, as conceptualized by double-Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling, aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting imbalances or deficiencies based on individual biochemistry using substances [nutrients] natural to the body such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements, water, lipids, and essential fatty acids.
The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and medicines is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be abandoned. --Dr. Charles Armbruster, M. D.
"As a retired physician, I can honestly say that unless you are in a serious accident, your best chance of living to a ripe old age is to avoid doctors and hospitals and learn nutrition, herbal medicine and other forms of natural medicine unless you are fortunate enough to have a naturopathic physician available. Almost all drugs are toxic and are designed only to treat symptoms and not to cure anyone. Vaccines are highly dangerous, have never been adequately studied or proven to be effective, and have a poor risk/reward ratio. Most surgery is unnecessary and most textbooks of medicine are inaccurate and deceptive. Almost every disease is said to be idiopathic (without known cause) or genetic—although this is untrue. In short, our main stream medical system is hopelessly inept and/or corrupt. The treatment of cancer and degenerative diseases is a national scandal. The sooner you learn this, the better off you will be." –Dr. Allan Greenberg, MD, Dec. 24, 2002
The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. --Dr. Ann Wigmore
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." --Thomas Edison, inventor of the lightbulb, phonograph, and motion picture.
Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food. --Hippocrates (460 - 377 B.C.), considered the father of Western medicine.
“You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.” --Linus Pauling
The medicine of the future must not only conform to the rules of nature, avoiding the use of alien drugs where possible, but also conform to human rules for ethics and objective science. --Dr. Carl C. Pfeiffer, PhD, MD
"You are what you eat." --Ancient adage. Everything we eat is digested, metabolized, and absorbed by our cells. What we eat today becomes our cells tomorrow.
To be a physician in the truest sense, one must consider the patient's troubles from all these basic standpoints—is it mechanical, nutritional, or psychological, or is it a varied combination of all three? The human body is not comprised of separate entities, but is a working unit in its entirety and so must be treated as such. --Dr. Fred Loffler, ND
"One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine...The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease...The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine." —Dr. William Osler (1849 - 1919)
You are what you eat and what your ancestors ate.
Don't count calories. Count nutrients.
Food is life. Anyone who doesn't believe this, don't eat for four weeks and see what happens.
Food is science. The purpose of eating is to nourish our cells. When we feed our cells the wrong foods, they become sick. Then we become sick.
Holistic Health. Complete health consists of many components. The main three are physical health, mental health, and emotional health. The body, mind, and spirit are entwined and are an inseparable part of holistic health; each one affects the other.
Physical Health. Physical health requires that we connect with Nature to get plenty of fresh air, sunlight, and exercise. In addition, a balanced diet of whole foods, organic when possible, should be a part of our daily lives. When in doubt, eat what our ancestors ate, which is the Palaeolithic Diet. The processed foods nowadays that come in cans, bags, bottles, and containers are not really food but are “food-like stuff” chemicals. Anything with a long-shelf life should be avoided in favour of perishable whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, algae, fungi, eggs, herbs, spices, essential oils, and animal protein in moderation. Eight hours of sleep a night is also essential to physical health.
Mental Health. One study suggested that 90% of doctor visits were due to stress. Stress has a debilitating effect on our brain, immune system, and other major organs. Left untreated, stress can develop into disease or exacerbate an existing one. Other common mental health issues include anxiety, grief, depression, shame, frustration, panic attacks, and unresolved or suppressed psychological problems. A daily routine of exercise, meditation, and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) has been shown to significantly improve a person’s mood.
Emotional Health. Our emotional health is mostly determined by our relationships, hobbies, purpose, and social circle. Are we happy in our personal relationships? Do the people we work with uplift us? What are we doing in our spare time that makes us happy? Have we found our meaning and purpose in life? Are the people we interact with outside of work a positive influence? Do they add value to our lives and make us better? The goal of emotional health is to become content or happy so that we can enjoy all life has to offer.
There are many facets to health. Like anything else in life, we have to work hard to achieve good health.
"The greatest wealth is health." —Virgil (70 - 19 BC), Roman Poet
The Pharmaceutical-Industrial Complex and the Medical-Industrial Complex
It may surprise most people that modern medicine is a for-profit industry. The first fiduciary (legal) duty of the drug companies, hospitals, and most of its clerks (medical doctors) is to maximize profit for their shareholders, and not to make people healthy. Making a profit is perfectly acceptable in a capitalist society; however, profit should not come at the expense of precious lives.
The bottom line is that the medical systems are controlled by financiers in order to serve financiers. Since you cannot serve people unless they get sick, the whole medical system is designed to make people sicker and sicker. —Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, MD
They are running a monopoly and they will lie, cheat and steal to keep it that way...Every day, consumers are becoming more educated about the benefits of holistic and alternative methods. This is something that the medical establishment obviously fears and wants to crush with false propaganda. —Dr Eva Snead
50 years of data from the CDC. Contagious/communicable diseases are transmitted primarily through the air, water, food, or contact. Look at the charts below. It's not a coincidence that the diseases dropped at roughly the same time frame:
—garbage collection reduced airborne contagions,
—water treatment/purification reduced waterborne contagions,
—refrigeration wiped out food contagions,
—plumbing (toilets, sinks) reduced physical-contact contagions (not STD-sexually transmitted diseases-though).
—washing machines, soap, deodorant, improved personal hygiene
—readily availability of food improved nutrition
Vaccines had little to do with the eradication of diseases. As the charts show, some vaccines actually caused the diseases they were supposed to treat.
"The entire vaccine program is based on massive fraud." -- Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.
"A lot of money can be made from healthy people who believe they are sick. Pharmaceutical companies sponsor diseases and promote them to prescribers and consumers. Ray Moynihan, Iona Heath, and David Henry give examples of 'disease mongering' and suggest how to prevent the growth of this practice..There's a lot of money to be made from telling healthy people they're sick. Some forms of medicalising ordinary life may now be better described as disease mongering: widening the boundaries of treatable illness in order to expand markets for those who sell and deliver treatments. Pharmaceutical companies are actively involved in sponsoring the definition of diseases and promoting them to both prescribers and consumers. The social construction of illness is being replaced by the corporate construction of disease." —Selling Sickness: The Pharmaceutical Industry and Disease Mongering , Ray Moynihan, journalist, Iona Heath, general practitioner, and David Henry, professor of clinical pharmacology
I've never known anyone on pharmaceutical drugs who is healthy. Most people visit a medical doctor with one problem. They're put on multiple drugs and end up with multiple problems—caused by side effects. And they still have the original problem.
Medical Errors - A Leading Cause of Death
The JOURNAL of the AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (JAMA) written by Dr Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, shows that medical errors may be the third leading cause of death in the United States.
The report apparently shows there are 2,000 deaths/year from unnecessary surgery; 7000 deaths/year from medication errors in hospitals; 20,000 deaths/year from other errors in hospitals; 80,000 deaths/year from infections in hospitals; 106,000 deaths/year from non-error, adverse effects of medications - these total up to 225,000 deaths per year in the US from iatrogenic causes which ranks these deaths as the # 3 killer. Iatrogenic is a term used when a patient dies as a direct result of treatments by a physician, whether it is from misdiagnosis of the ailment or from adverse drug reactions used to treat the illness. (drug reactions are the most common cause).
I no longer believe in Modern Medicine. I believe that despite all the super technology and elite beside manner, the greatest danger to your health is the doctor who practices Modern Medicine. I believe that Modern Medicine's treatments for disease are seldom effective, and that they're often more dangerous than the diseases they're designed to treat. I believe more than 90% of Modern Medicine could disappear from the face of the Earth—doctors, hospitals, drugs, and equipment—and the effect on our health would be immediate and beneficial. --Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, MD
Medical Errors in Hospitals Kill More Patients than Most Diseases
An article published in the September, 2013 issue [September 2013 - Volume 9 - Issue 3 - p 122–128] of the Journal of Patient Safety estimates that there are between 210,000 and 400,000 deaths per year associated with medical errors in hospitals. That would make medical errors the third-leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart disease and cancer...
A 2013 review of studies in the Journal of Patient Safety suggested medical errors cause somewhere between 210,000 and 400,000 deaths each year in the U.S. In a landmark report (PDF) 15 years ago (1999).
Our investigation has found that thousands of adolescents, children, and adults have been hospitalized for psychiatric treatment they didn't need; that hospitals hire bounty hunters to kidnap patients with mental health insurance; that patients are kept against their will until their insurance benefits run out; that psychiatrists are being pressured by the hospitals to increase profit; that hospitals 'infiltrate' schools by paying kickbacks to school counselors who deliver students; that bonuses are paid to hospital employees, including psychiatrists, for keeping the hospital beds filled; and that military dependents are being targeted for their generous mental health benefits. I could go on, but you get the picture. --U.S. Representative Patricia Schroeder, 1992 Senate hearing. By Lynn Payer, Disease- Mongers: How Doctors, Drug Companies, and Insurers Are Making You Feel Sick
Prescription Drugs - Leading Killer in USA
According to information we have received, a statistical study of hospital deaths in the U.S. conducted at the University of Toronto revealed that pharmaceutical drugs kill more people every year than are killed in traffic accidents.
The study is said to show that more than two million American hospitalized patients suffered a serious adverse drug reaction (ADR) within the 12-month period of the study and, of these, over 100,000 died as a result. The researchers found that over 75 per cent of these ADRs were dose-dependent, which suggests they were due to the inherent toxicity of the drugs rather than to allergic reactions.
The data did not include fatal reactions caused by accidental overdoses or errors in administration of the drugs. If these had been included, it is estimated that another 100,000 deaths would be added to the total every year.
The researchers concluded that ADRs (Adverse Drug Reactions) are now the fourth leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease, cancer, and stroke.
The pharmaceutical industry has spent over $9 billion since 2004 [over $12 billion as of 2014] to settle thousands of criminal and civil complaints related to the illegal marketing of drugs that kill or injure a million Americans annually – and yet, they control the policies that are used by CS [civil service] personnel to force drug/vaccine use. ----Office of Medical and Scientific Justice Journal
A half million people died from the use of sleeping pills in 2010 alone. --Dr. Carolyn Dean, Death by Modern Medicine
Doctors Are More Dangerous Than Gun Owners
Drugs are the primary cause of accidental liver poisoning in North America. In fact, even seeking medical attention today is becoming more dangerous.
The U.S. Department of Health Human Services reports that there are 700,000 U.S. doctors and they cause 120,000 accidental deaths every year, or 0.171 accidental deaths per physician.
The FBI says there are 80 million gun owners in the U.S., which cause 1,500 accidental deaths per year or just 0.000188 deaths per gun owner.
It’s a trifle shocking that doctors are 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners! And almost everyone has more than one doctor. [Over 90% of mass shootings were committed by people on anti-depressants or anti-psychotics].
It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it! --Upton Sinclair
FDA advisers tied to pharmaceutical industry
An article by Dennis Cauchon, the USA TODAY Newspaper
According to a USA Today study, more than half of the experts hired to advise the government on the safety and effectiveness of medicine have financial relationships with the pharmaceutical companies that will be helped or hurt by their decisions. These experts are hired to advise the Food and Drug Administration on which medicines should be approved for sale, what the warning labels should say and how studies of drugs should be designed. The experts are supposed to be independent, but USA TODAY found that 54% of the time, they have a direct financial interest in the drug or topic they are asked to evaluate. These conflicts include helping a pharmaceutical company develop a medicine, then serving on an FDA advisory committee that judges the drug.
The conflicts typically include stock ownership, consulting fees or research grants.
Federal law generally prohibits the FDA from using experts with financial conflicts of interest, but according to the article, the FDA has waived the restriction more than 800 times since 1998.
These pharmaceutical experts, about 300 on 18 advisory committees, make decisions that affect the health of millions of Americans and billions of dollars in drugs sales. With few exceptions, the FDA follows the committees' advice.
The thing that bugs me is that the people think the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is protecting them. It isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it’s doing are as different as night and day. --Dr Herbert Ley, former Commissioner of the FDA.
GlaxoSmithKline fined $3bn after bribing doctors to increase drugs sales
Sales reps in the US encouraged to mis-sell antidepressants Paxil and Wellbutrin and asthma treatment Advair
The pharmaceutical group GlaxoSmithKline has been fined $3bn (£1.9bn) after admitting bribing doctors and encouraging the prescription of unsuitable antidepressants to children. Glaxo is also expected to admit failing to report safety problems with the diabetes drug Avandia in a district court in Boston on Thursday.
The company encouraged sales reps in the US to mis-sell three drugs to doctors and lavished hospitality and kickbacks on those who agreed to write extra prescriptions, including trips to resorts in Bermuda, Jamaica and California.
The company admitted corporate misconduct over the antidepressants Paxil and Wellbutrin and asthma drug Advair.
Psychiatrists and their partners were flown to five-star hotels, on all-expenses-paid trips where speakers, paid up to $2,500 to attend, gave presentations on the drugs. They could enjoy diving, golf, fishing and other extra activities arranged by the company.
GSK also paid for articles on its drugs to appear in medical journals and "independent" doctors were hired by the company to promote the treatments, according to court documents... —www.TheGuardian.com
Pharmaceutical corporations and individual executives accused of genocide
Pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Amgen and Astra Zeneca are accused of deliberately preventing life-saving natural alternatives to drug based treatments from being applied in prevention and cure...A worldwide disinformation campaign undertaken by these companies is said to have caused the death of millions of people...The charges are contained in a detailed complaint filed by Dr. Mathias Rath in the International Criminal Court in the Hague.
"The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don't sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life...Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors...the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe. The patients don't realise that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that hasn't been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry...If you don't think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death...If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control." —Peter Gotzsche , Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare
Politicians and health officials are controlled by pharmaceutical industry
Allen Jones, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Office of Inspector General (OIG)
Drug companies write checks to politicians–they write checks to politicians on both sides of the aisle…As an OIG Investigator, I attempted to expose evidence of major pharmaceutical company wrongdoing. The industry was influencing state officials with trips, perks, lavish meals, transportation to and first-class accommodations in major cities. Some state employees were paid honorariums of up to $2,000 for speaking in their official capacities at drug-company sponsored events...the drug industry methodically compromised the decision making of elected and appointed public officials to gain access to captive populations of mentally ill individuals in prisons and state mental health hospitals...The pharmaceutical industry bypassed governmental safeguards and medical review by creating and marketing TMAP as a “treatment model” that was instituted in various states as an administrative decision by a select few politically appointed officials….
The treatment model accepted by these state officials had a fundamental requirement rooted deep within it: Doctors must first treat their patients with the newest, most expensive drugs patented by the pharmaceutical companies. The state doctors treating mental illness could choose which patented drug to use, but effectively could not choose to use less expensive generic drugs unless and until the patented drugs failed.
At Pfizer I was expected to increase profits at all costs, even when sales meant endangering lives. –John Kopchinski, former Pfizer sales representative. Mr. Kopchinski won a $52 million qui tam lawsuit against Pfizer in 2009.
Drug Companies Bribing Doctors
Pharmaceutical companies have curried the favor of practicing physicians for many years... As the cost of development and marketing of pharmaceuticals increased, the drug companies efforts to attract the allegiance of practicing physicians intensified.
The state of medicine has deteriorated to the point that it is taken for granted that you can't find experts who aren't on the take. --Dr. Howard Brody, on physicians and others in the healthcare industry.
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” —Dr. Marcia Angell, physician, author, former editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal. The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It
In 2014, pharmaceutical companies spent $4 billion marketing to consumers and $24 billion marketing to doctors.
These advertising efforts, which began with gifts to practicing doctors and medical students, have become a massive campaign to mold the attitudes, thoughts, and policies of practicing physicians. Drug companies hire detail men to visit physicians' offices and to distribute drug samples. They describe the indications for these drugs and attempt to persuade physicians to use their products. Like any other salesman, they denigrate the products of their competitors while glossing over the shortcomings of their own. Detail men have no formal medical or pharmacological training and are not regulated by any state or federal agencies. Despite their lack of training, these salesmen have been very effective. Their sales campaigns have been so successful within the United States that the average physician today has virtually been trained by the drug detail man. This practice has led to widespread overuse of drugs by both physicians in their everyday practice and the lay public....
With the exception of heroin and cocaine, 85 percent of all drugs currently abused in the streets are manufactured by 'ethical' drug companies.... Gross sales forecasts from these 'ethical' drug companies deliberately include profits made from illicit sales to drug peddlers.
University Scientists--the Willing Pawns
Drug companies employ many means in bribing doctors and medical institutions. Dr Levin writes:
Young physicians are offered research grants by drug companies. Medical schools are given large sums of money for clinical trials and basic pharmaceutical research. Drug companies regularly host lavish dinner and cocktail parties for groups of physicians. They provide funding for the establishment of hospital buildings, medical school buildings, and 'independent' research institutes. --Dr. Levin
The pharmaceutical industry has purposefully moved to develop an enormous amount of influence within medical teaching institutions. This move was greatly facilitated by several factors. The first was the economic recession, which caused a marked constriction in federal funding for research programs. Academic scientists lacked funding for pet research projects. The second was the tremendous interest that academic scientists held in biotechnology, the stock market, and the possibility of becoming millionaires overnight. The third is the fact that academic physicians tend to lack real clinical experience. In the university, the physician is an expert in esoteric disease, end-stage disease, and animal models of human disease. He or she has little or no experience with the day-to-day needs of the chronically ill patient or the patient with very early symptoms of serious illness. As the academic physician does not depend upon the good will of the patient for his or her livelihood, the patient's well-being becomes of minor consideration to him or her. All these factors make the academic physician a very poor judge of treatment efficacy and a willing pawn of health industrialists.
The further I looked the more shocked I became. I found that the whole vaccine business was indeed a gigantic hoax. Most doctors are convinced that they are useful, but if you look at the proper statistics and study the instances of these diseases, you will realize that this is not so...My final conclusion after forty years or more in medicine is that the unofficial policy of the WHO (World Health Organization) and the unofficial policy of the "Save the Children" fund and other vaccine promoting organizations is one of murder and genocide. I cannot see any other possible explanation. You cannot immunize sick children, malnourished children, and expect to get away with it. You'll kill far more children than would have died from natural infection. --Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, Ph.D., A.M.M., M.B.B.S., F.A.P.M.
Relying on Doctors and Scientists for Medical Advice
"Data fabrication is so widespread that it is called 'making' in the Japanese pharmaceutical industry, 'graphiting' or 'dry labelling' in the United States...Pharmaceutical companies face great temptations to mislead health authorities about the safety of their products." --Dr John Braithwaite
Doctors rely heavily on information supplied by the pharmaceutical industry. But proper research suggests that just six percent of this information is supported by hard evidence. All this leads to another important issue—we the public are taking record levels of drugs but our health is not improving. I see some patients who take more than ten medications a day and I feel that these multiple drugs may do a lot more harm than good. The pharmaceutical industry has invested a fortune in making us sick and neurotic. Put bluntly, the profit motive of the pharmaceutical industry is corrupting doctors and destroying society’s sense of well-being. The medical profession continues to be in denial over the influence of the pharmaceutical industry. Many doctors are addicted to its hospitality and freebie culture, so beware; your prescription may not have been issued for all the right reasons. --GERARD KIELTY, I.R.B., I.D.E.
I.R.B. (Institutional Review Board), I.D.E. (Investigational Device Exemption)
In the US, it is legal for a physician to receive up to $50,000 from the pharmaceutical industry. If the amount is $50,000 or less, it does not have to be reported to an ethics committee. Therefore, not deemed a conflict of interest in the eyes of the law. It is a common practice for physicians, particularly MDs (Medical Doctors), to receive gifts, money, trips, equipment, etc., from pharmaceutical companies.
In the 1930s, the tobacco industry concluded that people trusted their physicians. So when physicians brought forth evidence that cigarettes were causing lung and other cancers in their patients, the tobacco industry used physicians in its marketing campaigns. This continued for five decades, until the 1980s, when faced with government pressure and a barrage of class action lawsuits did the tobacco industry admit that cigarettes caused lung and other cancers. Although it had known about it for approximately four decades.
The pharmaceutical industry is using the same deceptive strategy with drugs and vaccines that the tobacco industry had used with cigarettes.
"Men and women in every branch of medicine—113, 597 in all—were queried in this nationwide study of cigarette preference. Three leading research organizations made the survey. The gist of the query was—What cigarette do you prefer, Doctor?"
The patient’s right of self-decision can be effectively exercised only if the patient possesses enough information to enable an informed choice. The patient should make his or her own determination about treatment. The physician's obligation is to present the medical facts accurately to the patient or to the individual responsible for the patient’s care and to make recommendations for management in accordance with good medical practice. The physician has an ethical obligation to help the patient make choices from among the therapeutic alternatives consistent with good medical practice. Informed consent is a basic policy in both ethics and law that physicians must honor, unless the patient is unconscious or otherwise incapable of consenting and harm from failure to treat is imminent. In special circumstances, it may be appropriate to postpone disclosure of information, (see Opinion E-8.122, "Withholding Information from Patients").
Physicians should sensitively and respectfully disclose all relevant medical information to patients. The quantity and specificity of this information should be tailored to meet the preferences and needs of individual patients. Physicians need not communicate all information at one time, but should assess the amount of information that patients are capable of receiving at a given time and present the remainder when appropriate. (I, II, V, VIII)
First, do no harm. --Hippocratic Oath (still sworn by modern physicians)

Every person is the author of their own health or disease. --Buddha
The belief that for-profit man-made pills and chemicals can treat illness and disease is medical quackery
"As a medical doctor, I practiced medicine for over 20 years in different countries. I went to different provinces in Canada, and I lived in the U.S. for 6 years. I got to know the medical system. I was questioning, "Why is everything so expensive? Why are we getting sicker and sicker and health care is getting more and more expensive, and everybody's unhappy?" I realized that different systems are totally alike. They have different names but, whether they are a capitalist system, like we have in the U.S., or socialized, like in France, or in between, like in Canada, the bottom line is that the medical systems are all alike. They all serve financiers and not the people. That's the basic thing. The bottom line is that the medical systems are controlled by financiers in order to serve financiers. Since you cannot serve people unless they get sick, the whole medical system is designed to make people sicker and sicker. When I realized this, I had the choice either to obey the medical authorities and keep my mouth shut or to obey my conscience and speak out. I made a decision to obey my conscious, knowing what the punishments were when one doesn't obey the system. So, I wrote the book The Medical Mafia: How to Get Out of It Alive and Take Back Our Health and Wealth." —Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, M.D.
16 Quotes on Pharmaceutical Drugs from MDs (Medical Doctors)
1. "The cause of most disease is in the poisonous drugs physicians superstitiously give in order to effect a cure." -- Charles E. Page, M.D.
2. "Medicines are of subordinate importance because of their very nature, they can only work symptomatically." -- Hans Kusche, M.D.
3. "If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea, it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity" -- O.W. Holmes, (Prof. of Med. Harvard University)
4. "Drug medications consists in employing, as remedies for disease, those things which produce disease in well persons. Its materia medica is simply a lot of drugs or chemicals or dye-stuffs in a word poisons. All are incompatible with vital matter; all produce disease when brought in contact in any manner with the living; all are poisons." -- R.T. TraIl, M.D., in a two and one half hour lecture to members of congress and the medical profession, delivered at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.
5. "Every drug increases and complicates the patients condition." -- Robert Henderson, M.D.
6. "Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature's protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time." -- Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.
7. "The greatest part of all chronic disease is created by the suppression of acute disease by drug poisoning." -- Henry Lindlahr, M.D.
8. "Every educated physician knows that most diseases are not appreciably helped by medicine." -- Richard C. Cabot, M.D. (Mass. Gen. Hospital)
9. "Medicine is only palliative, for back of disease lies the cause, and this cause no drug can reach." -- Wier Mitchel, M.D.
10. "The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine." -- William Osler, M.D.
11. "Medical practice has neither philosophy nor common sense to recommend it. In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By taking drug - medicines more impurities are added, thereby the case is further embarrassed and harder to cure." -- Elmer Lee, M.D., Past Vice President, Academy of Medicine.
12. "Our figures show approximately four and one half million hospital admissions annually due to the adverse reactions to drugs. Further, the average hospital patient has as much as thirty percent chance, depending how long he is in, of doubling his stay due to adverse drug reactions." -- Milton Silverman, M.D. (Professor of Pharmacology, University of California)
13. "Why would a patient swallow a poison because he is ill, or take that which would make a well man sick." -- L.F. Kebler, M.D.
14. "What hope is there for medical science to ever become a true science when the entire structure of medical knowledge is built around the idea that there is an entity called disease which can be expelled when the right drug is found?" -- John H. Tilden, M.D.
15. "The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be abandoned." -- Charles Armbruster, M. D.
16. "We are prone to thinking of drug abuse in terms of the male population and illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. It may surprise you to learn that a greater problem exists with millions of women dependent on legal prescription drugs." -- Robert Mendelsohn, M.D
What some doctors have said about vaccines
"My suspicion, which is shared by others in my profession, is that the nearly 10,000 SIDS deaths that occur in the United States each year are related to one or more of the vaccines that are routinely given children. The pertussis vaccine is the most likely villain, but it could also be one or more of the others." --Dr. Mendelsohn, M.D.
"The evidence for indicting immunisations for SIDS is circumstantial, but compelling. However, the keepers of the keys to medical-research funds are not interested in researching this very important lead to the cause of an ongoing, and possibly preventable, tragedy. Anything that implies that immunisations are not the greatest medical advance in the history of public health is ignored or ridiculed. Can you imagine the economic and political import of discovering that immunisations are killing thousands of babies?" --Dr. Douglass M.D.
"Only after realising that routine immunisations were dangerous did I achieve a substantial drop in infant death rates. The worst vaccine of all is the whooping cough vaccine... it is responsible for a lot of deaths and for a lot of infants suffering irreversible brain damage. In susceptible infants, it knocks their immune systems about, leading to irreparable brain damage, or severe attacks or even deaths from diseases like pneumonia or gastro-enteritis and so on." --Dr. Kalokerinos, M.D.
"Delay of DPT immunisation until 2 years of age in Japan has resulted in a dramatic decline in adverse side effects. In the period of 1970-1974, when DPT vaccination was begun at 3 to 5 months of age, the Japanese national compensation system paid out claims for 57 permanent severe damage vaccine cases, and 37 deaths. During the ensuing six year period 1975-1980, when DPT injections were delayed to 24 months of age, severe reactions from the vaccine were reduced to a total of eight with three deaths. This represents an 85 to 90 percent reduction in severe cases of damage and death." --Raymond Obomsawin, M.D.
"Autism may be a disorder linked to the disruption of the G-alpha protein, affecting retinoid receptors in the brain. A study of sixty autistic children suggests that autism may be caused by inserting a G-alpha protein defect, the pertussis toxin found in the D.P.T. vaccine, into genetically at-risk children." --Mary N. Megson, M.D.
"This report describes six mothers who received live virus vaccines and one who received a Hepatitis B vaccine during pregnancy after having received an MMR booster five months prior to conception. All the children who resulted from these pregnancies have had developmental problems, six out seven (85%) were diagnosed with autism, and the seventh seems to exhibit symptoms often associated with autistic spectrum disorders." --F. EdwardYazbak, MD
"Every day new parents are ringing us. They all have the same tragic story. Healthy baby, child, teenager, usually a boy, given the DPT (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus) or DT (diphtheria and tetanus), MMR or MMR booster followed by a sudden fall or slow, but steady decline into autism or other spectrums disorder."--The Hope Project (Ireland)
"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. Viera Scheibner
"My data proves that the studies used to support immunisation are so flawed that it is impossible to say if immunisation 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." --John B.Classen, M.D., M.B.A.
"The medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are changing our genetic code through vaccination." --Guylaine Lanctot M.D. Canadian author of the best-seller 'Medical Mafia'.
Jonas Salk, inventor of the IPV, testified before a Senate subcommittee that nearly all polio outbreaks since 1961 were caused by the oral polio vaccine.
"Crib death" was so infrequent in the pre-vaccination era that it was not even mentioned in the statistics, but it started to climb in the 1950s with the spread of mass vaccination against diseases of childhood. --Harris L.Coulter, PhD.
"These data show that DPT vaccination may be a generally unrecognised major cause of sudden infant and early childhood death, and that the risks of immunisation may outweigh its potential benefits. A need for re-evaluation and possible modification of current vaccination procedures is indicated by this study." --William C. Torch, M.D., Director of Child Neurology, Department of Paediatrics, University of Nevada School of Medicine
"You cannot be in the presence of a profoundly vaccine damaged child and not know that child could be your own. And you cannot try to comfort a mother who has just buried a baby who has died from a vaccine or a disease and not know that you could be the one standing over the grave. When it happens to your child, the risks are 100 percent." -Anonymous
"Vaccination is not necessary, not useful, does not protect. There are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS." --Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, West Germany, specialist of internal diseases and participant in about 150 trials of vaccination victims.
Dr. Michael Odent has written a letter in the JAMA (1994) where his figures show a five times higher rate of asthma in pertussis immunised children compared to non-immunised children. He is also quoted in the International Vaccination Newsletter (Sept. 1994): "Immunised children have more ear infections and spend more days in hospital."
"The public is surely entitled to convincing proof, beyond all reasonable doubt, that artificial immunisation is in fact a safe and effective procedure, in no way injurious to health, and that the threat of the corresponding natural diseases remain sufficiently clear and urgent to warrant mass inoculation of everyone, even against their will if necessary. Unfortunately, such proof has never been given." --Richard Moskowitz, M.D., Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy, March 1983 (76:7)
"Vaccination is expensive and represents a cost of one billion dollars annually. It therefore benefits the industry; most notably, the multinational manufacturers. One sells the vaccines. The other then provides the arsenal of medications to respond to the numerous complications that follow. Their profits increase while our expenses go through the roof. To the point where we have simply had it up to here and are ready to accept the unacceptable, such as socialised medicine in the United States, for example." --Dr Lanctot MD
In the May 24, 1996, New Zealand Medical Journal, J. Barthelow Classen, MD, a former researcher at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the founder and CEO of Classen Immunotherapies in Baltimore, reported that juvenile diabetes increased 60 per cent following a massive hepatitis B vaccination campaign for babies six weeks or older in New Zealand from 1988 to 1991. In the October 22, 1997, Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice, Classen showed that Finland's incidence of diabetes increased 147 per cent in children under five after three new vaccines were introduced in the 1970s, and that diabetes increased 40 per cent in children aged 5 to 9 after the addition of the MMR and Hib vaccines in the 1980s. He concluded that "the rise in IDDM [juvenile onset diabetes] in the different age groups correlated with the number of vaccines given."
Yet some parents and doctors, concerned about the future, are looking beyond the present. "What we forget is that millions of years of evolution have taken place on this planet, and up until the last 100 years, humans have lived in relative harmony with microbes. Yes, there have been epidemic infectious diseases in history, but they have always resolved themselves. I don't think there is any real appreciation for what we may be doing by using so many vaccines to try to eradicate so many organisms. If we stay the present course, will mankind be free from infectious disease but crippled by chronic disease? Will eradication of feared diseases, such as AIDS, through mass vaccination be one of man's greatest triumphs or will we live in fear of deadly mutations of microbes that have outsmarted man's attempt to eradicate them? We may look back at the crossroads we are at today and wish we had decided to make peace with nature instead of trying to dominate it." --Richard Moscowitz, MD
"This..forced me to look into the question of vaccination further, and the further I looked the more shocked I became. I found that the whole vaccine business was indeed a gigantic hoax. Most doctors are convinced that they are useful, but if you look at the proper statistics and study the instances of these diseases you will realise that this is not so . . . My final conclusion after forty years or more in this business [medicine] is that the unofficial policy of the World Health Organisation and the unofficial policy of the 'Save the Children's Fund' and ... [other vaccine promoting] organisations is one of murder and genocide. . . . I cannot see any other possible explanation. . . . You cannot immunise sick children, malnourished children, and expect to get away with it. You'll kill far more children than would have died from natural infection." --Dr Kalokerinos MD
"Two or three years ago there was a rash of positive HIV and hepatitis patients in Baltimore among people who would otherwise not be expected to have a positive test. When studied all of these people had received the influenza vaccine four to six weeks prior and this was rapidly covered up by the press." -- Dr. Eva Snead, Feb 2000
Nine die in flu tragedy as epidemic hits nursing home (Daily Express 1/1/1999) Nine pensioners died within days of each other after a suspected flu epidemic swept the nursing home where they lived. An investigation has been launched after it emerged all the victims suffered severe chest infections despite having the flu vaccinations.
If vaccines are so effective in preventing disease why have epidemics occurred around the world following mass vaccination programs? In the Philippines for example, "after ten years of compulsory inoculation against smallpox (25 million shots) over 170,000 got smallpox and 75,000 deaths were recorded between 1911 and 1920" (from the Townsend Letter for Doctors article "Are Vaccines Generally Detrimental to the Human Defence System," Feb/Mar 1994).
"Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has been reported following administration of DPT. The significance is unclear. 85% of SIDS cases occur in the period 1 through 6 months of age, with the peak incidence at age 2 to 4 months." --From the accompanying insert to Connaught Labs DPT shot.
"There has been a frightening increase in cases of autism that has not been explained. There are a number of anecdotal reports from parents that symptoms of autism have appeared close to the time of the (MMR) vaccine." Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and clinical lecturer in medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, and a professor of clinical medicine at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine.
Even the WHO (World Health Organisation) has admitted, disease and mortality rates in Third World countries have no direct correlation with immunisation procedures or medical treatment, but they are closely related to the standard of hygiene and diet. A 1973 issue of Scientific American revealed the same finding : that "over 90% of all contagious disease was eliminated by vastly improved water systems, sanitation, living conditions and transportation of food." Mass vaccinations did not appear on the scene until a century after the decline in infectious diseases started (1850-1940), but inoculations were, and still are given full credit. --Susan DeSimone
"Up to 90% of the total decline in the death rate of children between 1860-1965 because of whooping cough, scarlet fever, diphtheria, and measles occurred before the introduction of immunisations and antibiotics." ---Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, M.D.
"The mechanics of vaccination to build immunity, on the other hand, is quite unnatural. Rather than space exposure to a relatively minuscule level of micro-organisms in a gradual manner, massive quantities of antigens are introduced into the body through a series of vaccinations that are given right in a row over a short period of time. All vaccines, with the exception of the OPV (oral polio vaccination) are injected directly into the bloodstream, by-passing the mucosal immune system known as the secretory IgA. The secretory IgA is the first in a series of defensive levels within the immune system. It serves as a buffer, filtering microbes so that the impact of these invading organisms is greatly reduced once it reaches the bloodstream. The IgA allows the antigen to be removed in the same manner in which it arrived - through the mucosal barrier - by sneezing, coughing and sweating. So a vaccine that has been injected "gives the body no warning, no generalised inflammatory response, no chance to recognise, duplicate or defend itself against future challenges from typical antigens," writes Dr. Mendelsohn in How to Raise a Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor.
A recent topical example: the diphtheria case, and the "fear" created by this one, extremely mild, case in an unvaccinated child. Dr Ossi Mansoor, a principal doctor regarding vaccination policy, stated on Radio Pacific, "The figures we have are that in the 1920s there were 800 deaths every year" (from diphtheria). Yet the New Zealand Government's statistics show the average yearly number was below 100, also that the average death rate per 10,000 mean of population fell from 6.08 to 0.20 before the use of the diphtheria vaccine. --Southland Times 30-Sep-1998
"I've been practicing for 40 years, and in the past 10 years the children have been sicker than ever."--Dr Doris J.Rapp, paediatric allergist.
"I once believed in Jenner; I once believed in Pasteur. I believed in vaccination. I believed in vivisection. But I changed my views as the result of hard thinking."--Dr. Hadwen
"Measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and the whole panoply of childhood diseases are a far less serious threat than having a large fraction (say 10%) of a generation afflicted with learning disability and/or uncontrollable aggressive behaviour because of an impassioned crusade for universal vaccination.......Public policy regarding vaccines is fundamentally flawed. It is permeated by conflicts of interest. It is based on poor scientific methodology (including studies that are too small, too short, and too limited in populations represented), which is, moreover, insulated from independent criticism. The evidence is far too poor to warrant overriding the independent judgements of patients, parents, and attending physicians, even if this were ethically or legally acceptable." --Association Of American Physicians & Surgeons
"If you want the truth on vaccination you must go to those who are not making anything out of it. If doctors shot at the moon every time it was full as a preventive of measles and got a shilling for it, they would bring statistics to prove it was a most efficient practice, and that the population would be decimated if it were stopped."---Dr Allinson
"To pass our examinations and get qualified, we must accept what our teachers tell us. In other words, we must cultivate what Josh Billings called 'A well-balanced mind---one that will balance in any direction required.'"--Major R. Austin M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P
"The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunisation.....There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease." --Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.
"I think that no person would permit anybody to get close to them with an inoculation if they would really know how they are made, what they carry, what has been lied to them about them and what the real percent of danger is of contracting such a disease which is minimal."---Dr. Eva Snead
"There are significant risks associated with every immunisation and numerous contraindications that may make it dangerous for the shots to be given to your child....There is growing suspicion that immunisation against relatively harmless childhood diseases may be responsible for the dramatic increase in autoimmune diseases since mass inoculations were introduced. These are fearful diseases such as cancer, leukaemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's disease, lupus erthematosus, and the Guillain-Barre syndrome." --Dr. Mendelsohn, M.D.
"Probably 20% of American children-one youngster in five--- suffers from 'development disability'. This is a stupefying figure..We have inflicted it on ourselves.. 'development disabilities' are nearly always generated by encephalitis. And the primary cause of encephalitis in the USA and other industrialised countries is the childhood vaccination program. To be specific, a large proportion of the millions of US children and adults suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia, and other shoots or branches of the hydraheaded entity called 'development disabilities', owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases." --Harris Coulter, PhD
"It is pathetic and ludicrous to say we ever vanquished smallpox with vaccines, when only 10% of the population was ever vaccinated." - Dr. Glen Dettman.
"There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway." - Dr. J. Anthony Morris (formerly Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US Federal Drug Admin.)
"There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunisation of children does more harm than good." - Dr. J. Anthony Morris (formerly Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US Federal Drug Admin.)
"There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age." - Paul Frame, M.D., Journal of Family Practice
"Official data shows that large scale vaccination has failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection" - Dr. Sabin, developer of Polio vaccine.
"All vaccination has the effect of directing the three values of the blood into or toward the zone characteristics of cancer and leukaemia...Vaccines do predispose to cancer and leukaemia." -Professor L.Vincent - founder of Bioelectronics
"Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio Vaccines, being made from monkey kidney tissue, has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukaemia in this country." - Dr F. Klenner, M.D.
"Provocation polio. That is the truth about those outbreaks of polio. And I offer a well considered personal opinion that polio is a man made disease." -Viera Scheibner, Ph.D.
"Even to this day, the government, the FDA is refusing to use the sophisticated biotechnology to evaluate the contaminants in the vaccines such as the polio vaccines that they are administering. I think (people) would be appalled that some of the vaccines that are currently being used are still laced with viruses." -Leonard Horowitz., D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H.
"May as well consult a butcher on the value of vegetarianism as a doctor on the worth of vaccination."---Bernard Shaw
"The vaccinations are not working, and they are dangerous.. We should be working with nature." --- Lendon H.Smith, M.D.
"For a paediatrician to attack what has become the 'bread and butter' of paediatric practice is equivalent to a priest denying the infallibility of the pope." - Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.
"The decline in infectious diseases in developed countries had nothing to do with vaccinations, but with the decline in poverty and hunger." --Dr. Buchwald, M.D.
"I was working in one of the oldest lung illness treatment centres in Germany, and just by chance, I looked at the files of those people who had fallen ill during the first German epidemic of smallpox, in 1947...We had always been told that the smallpox vaccination would protect against smallpox. And now I could verify, thanks to the files and papers, that all of those who had fallen ill had been vaccinated. This was very upsetting for me." - Dr. Buchwald, M.D.
"It was similar with the measles vaccination. They went through Africa, South America and elsewhere, and vaccinated sick and starving children...They thought they were wiping out measles, but most of those susceptible to measles died from some other disease that they developed as a result of being vaccinated. The vaccination reduced their immune levels and acted like an infection. Many got septicaemia, gastro-enteritis, etcetera, or made their nutritional status worse and they died from malnutrition. So there were very few susceptible infants left alive to get measles. It's one way to get good statistics. Kill all those that are susceptible, which is what they literally did." --Dr. Kalokerinos, M.D.
"Only after realising that routine immunisations were dangerous did I achieve a substantial drop in infant death rates." --Dr. Kalokerinos
"I well remember, some years ago, listening to a knighted medical researcher as he spoke on the radio, about vaccines. He told two classical stories form the history books. The first concerned Edward Jenner who, according to history, watched as the milkmaid caught cowpox and this protected her from smallpox. So Jenner got some of the 'cowpox' and inoculated it into someone's arm - it fostered and the pus was then inoculated into someone else - 100% success was claimed. 100%!! How absurd - complete with all sorts of germs including hepatitis, syphilis and whatever. If one did that today, without antibiotics, the death rate would be huge."---Dr. Kalokerinos, M.D.
The prerequisite for today's medical policy is naturally the currently predominant system of medicine. The sick are the source of income, therefore it is necessary for sick people to be there. And, yes, it proves advantageous if one makes the people artificially sick. --Dr. Med. Steintl: 'International Medical Policy', 1938, Berlin
In the April 15, 1998, issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), an analysis of drug side effects found that toxic reactions to correctly prescribed medications make more than two million Americans seriously ill every year and kill 106,000, putting drug side effects among the top 10 causes of death in the United States. Among children, antibiotics and vaccines cause more adverse reactions than any other.
In one study, serious reactions to the DPT vaccine (including grand mal epilepsy and encephalopathy) were shown to be as high as 1 in 600. In another study, approximately one out of every 200 children who received the full DPT series suffered severe reactions. Immunisation: Survey of Recent Research, (United States Department of Health and Human Services, April 1983), p. 76.
Dr. Bernard Greenberg, a biostatistics expert, was chairman of the Committee on Evaluation and Standards of the American Public Health Association during the 1950s. He testified at a panel discussion that was used as evidence for the congressional hearings on polio vaccine in 1962. During these hearings he elaborated on the problems associated with polio statistics and disputed claims for the vaccine's effectiveness. He attributed the dramatic decline in polio cases to a change in reporting practices by physicians. Less cases were identified as polio after the vaccination for very specific reasons. "Prior to 1954 any physician who reported paralytic poliomyelitis was doing his patient a service by way of subsidising the cost of hospitalisation and was being community-minded in reporting a communicable disease. The criterion of diagnosis at that time in most health departments followed the World Health Organisation definition: "Spinal paralytic poliomyelitis: signs and symptoms of non-paralytic poliomyelitis with the addition of partial or complete paralysis of one or more muscle groups, detected on two examinations at least 24 hours apart." Note that "two examinations at least 24 hours apart" was all that was required. Laboratory confirmation and presence of residual paralysis was not required. In 1955 the criteria were changed to conform more closely to the definition used in the 1954 field trials: residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days after onset of illness and again 50 to 70 days after onset.... This change in definition meant that in 1955 we started reporting a new disease, namely, paralytic poliomyelitis with a longer-lasting paralysis. Furthermore, diagnostic procedures have continued to be refined. Coxsackie virus infections and aseptic meningitis have been distinguished from paralytic poliomyelitis. Prior to 1954 large numbers of these cases undoubtedly were mislabelled as paralytic poliomyelitis. Thus, simply by changes in diagnostic criteria, the number of paralytic cases was predetermined as used.
A study revealed that 1 in 175 children who completed the full DPT suffered severe reactions ("Nature and Rates of Adverse Reactions Associated with DPT and DT Immunisations in Infants and Children" [Paediatrics, Nov. 1981, Vol.68, No.5]) and a Dr.'s report for attorneys which found that 1 in 300 DPT immunisations resulted in seizures (The Fresno Bee, Community Relations, DPT Report, Dec 5, 1984).
"Poliomyelitis trends in Pondicherry, south India, 1989-91" (Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health [London], vol. 51, no. 4, August 1997, pages 443-48): About 54 percent of children lamed as a result of poliomyelitis had received three doses of oral polio vaccine before the onset of paralysis.
"Poliomyelitis associated with type-2 poliovirus vaccine strain. Possible transmission from an immunised child to a non-immunised child" (The Lancet, vol. 1, March 30, 1968, pp. 661-3): a sixteen-month-old boy hospitalised for high fever and paralysis had never received any poliovirus vaccine. >From playing and sharing a bed with a cousin, he apparently had contracted paralytic poliomyelitis from the cousin, who had received type-2 oral poliovirus vaccine thirty-three days before. Virological and serological investigation revealed a vaccine-like strain of type-2 poliovirus. The patient's history revealed no particular susceptibility to infections."
"If we look closely, we realise that health for all, according to the WHO, means medicalization and vaccinations for all. That is to say sickness for all." -- Guylaine Lanctot, M.D.
Some doctors refuse to vaccinate their own children as well. According to Dr. Jerome Murphy, former head of PediatricNeurology at Milwaukee Children's Hospital, "There is just overwhelming data that there's an association [between the pertussis vaccine and seizures]. I know it has influenced many paediatric neurologists not to have their own children immunised with pertussis."
Vaccine Injury Compensation, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Health and the Environment, 99th Congress, 2nd Session (July 25, 1986) p 214 "The vaccination lobby shamelessly takes all the children of this world as hostages to still their greed for money and power. They relentlessly abuse our compassion for the weaker and our concern about health to promote their giga-business. No matter what. No matter how many more vaccine victims will suffer death or side-effects. No matter how many financial resources this strategy devours at the expense of essential social investments like housing and employment. No matter what. Shocking! There is no excuse for this crime. Just as shocking is the observation that (health) policy is no longer under local, democratic control. Everything is set up and organised with scrutiny at the highest, international level by those who take profit from it: the pharmaceutical industry, the financial world, politicians." --Kris Gaublomme, MD
Five deaths have been reported in Australia from vaccines in the 19 month period 6/6/97 to 31/1/99. These statistics make a mockery of the words of Australia's Health Minister, Dr. Michael Wooldridge, who said: 'It's more likely your child will die because of a meteorite falling from space than die from immunisation'.
'When you do get to the little wrappers that come with the little bottles of vaccine and read the small print, the alarm bells start ringing.., vaccination does not guarantee immunisation... you do run some risk with vaccination... I put it that natural immunity is much more likely to be protective of the child than the much failed record of artificial immunity coming from vaccination'. --Senator Brown of Tasmania (ex medical practitioner).
'It is impossible to identify all rare adverse events or to identify the safest vaccine combinations prior to licensure' said Robert Chen, chief of vaccine safety and development activity at the USA National Immunisation Program of the Center for Disease Control.
The USA Association of American Physicians and Surgeons said that children younger than 14 are three times more likely to be killed or seriously injured by Hepatitis 'B' vaccine than to catch the disease. They have called for an immediate moratorium on mandatory Hepatitis 'B' vaccine for school children pending further research about dangerous side effects.
The USA Public Health Service and the American Academy of Pediatrics are now asking vaccine manufacturers to eliminate the preservative of Thimerosal (a mercury derivative) from all vaccines. Thimerosal is presently being used in Hepatitis 'B, Diphtheria Tetanus, Pertussis (DTPw), Influenza and Bacterial Meningitis (Hib) vaccines. It has been found that the cumulative effects of ingesting mercury can cause brain damage.
The Centers for Disease Control in the USA recently recommended the phasing-out of the oral polio vaccine in favour of the inactivated polio vaccine by injection. The risk of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis now seems greater than the risk posed by the disease.
The Bovine Spongiform Encephalitis BSE (Mad Cow Disease) inquiry in the UK has shown that the 40 victims of BSE and the new variant Creutzteldt-Jakob disease may not have had anything to do with eating beef, but from injecting vaccines made from the brains of BSE-infected cattle.
Modern vaccinations, fear of germs and obsession with hygiene are depriving the immune system of the information input upon which it is dependent. This fails to maintain the correct cytokine balance and fine-tune T-cell regulation, and may lead to increased incidences of allergies and autoimmune diseases. If humans continue to deprive their immune systems of the input to which evolution has adapted it, it may be necessary to devise ways of replacing it artificially. --Rook GA, Stanford JL Dept of Bacteriology, UCL Medical School, London, UK.
"Instead of the Government spending $400,000 on immunisation, we may get far better health outcomes if we spend $100,000 in some other way, on nutrition for example...When you have an expenditure on getting your community healthier, then the resistance to many childhood diseases is stronger." -Michael Moore, .Health Minister, Hansard 1997.
"Among school age children, (measles) outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination levels of greater than 98%. These outbreaks have occurred in all parts of the country, including areas that had not reported measles for years." -Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, 29/12/1989.

"From January 1988 to March 1989, a widespread outbreak (118 cases) of polio type 1 occurred in Oman. Incidence of paralytic disease was highest in children younger than 2 years despite an immunisation program that had recently raised coverage with 3 doses of oral poliovirus vaccine among 12 month old children from 67% to 87%."
"The incidence of asthma has been found to be five times more common in vaccinated children." -The Lancet, 1994.
"There is no doubt in my mind that in the U.K. alone some hundreds, if not thousands, of well infants have suffered irreparable brain damage needlessly (due to being vaccinated)." - Prof. G. Stewart, Dev. Biol. Stand. Vol. 61: pp 395-405. 1985.
"There has been a tendency (by doctors) to play down the likelihood of common adverse reactions...Immunisations are thus commonly given without the informed consent of parents. When problems arise after vaccination, these doctors tend to play down the severity of the complaints and will often deny a connection with the vaccination." - MJA (Medical Journal of Australia) Submission on Vaccination. Dr. Mark Donohoe MB BS. Submitted to the Medical Journal of Australia, Feb 97 rejected May 97, then published in Australian Vaccination Network, "Vaccination Roulette" 1998.
"89% of doctors rely on drug company salesmen for their information." -The Australian Doctor 1989.
"In the USA the vaccination lobby has made the US Government shoulder the vaccine manufacturers liabilities. The Government established a National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in 1986 and has paid out in excess of $1 billion to families for vaccine injuries, mainly from the whooping cough vaccine. The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Scheme of the FDA admits 12,000 to 14,000 reports annually and agree that only 10 to 15% of adverse reactions are reported."
"In 1993 a high court judge in the UK decided that it was impossible to know the exact contents of vaccines and that science had no idea what the cocktail of chemicals, contaminants and heavy metals contained in vaccines could do to the human body, or why they would work to prevent disease." -British Medical Journal, 1993.
"Studies have shown that while the oral polio vaccine contains three strains of polio virus, a fourth strain can be cultured from the faeces of vaccine recipients. This indicates that viruses have recombined and formed a new strain in the process of vaccination." -Virology, 1993.
"It is officially admitted that all cases of polio in the US, since the introduction of the vaccine, are caused by the vaccine. The same has been seen in Australia and other countries like England. So the occurrence of the same phenomenon all around the world would be asking too much of coincidence." - Dr Viera Scheibner, "Vaccination: The Medical Assault on the Immune System" 1993.
"In an outbreak of measles in Western Sydney in 1993, 73% of cases occurred in children aged 5-9 years who had been vaccinated against measles according to their parents." -Medical Journal of Australia, 1995.
"In the USA in 1978, they mandated vaccination and it resulted in a three fold increase in the reported incidence of whooping cough." -Dr. Viera Scheibner showing graphs from Tokai Journal of Experimental Biology and Medicine 1988.
Atypical measles has been known about for almost as long as the measles vaccine has been around and it is ONLY found in the vaccinated. It is typified by a milder than usual rash which is probably where the ugly rumour has originated that vaccinated people get milder cases of measles than the unvaccinated. Though the rash may be less, the symptoms can be much worse and the chances of lung involvement are higher than with wild measles (20% +) and liver involvement 3% +) The earliest medical journal study I have about this is "Altered Reactivity to Measles Virus" Atypical Measles in Children Previously Immunised with Inactivated Measles Virus Vaccines. Fulginiti, V.A. et al; JAMA 18/12/67, Vol. 202, No. 12. Viera Scheibner has said that the chances of dying from wild measles are 0.03% while the chances of dying from atypical measles are between 12-15%. It was thought at one time that it was only the early inactivated vaccine that could cause atypical measles, but it is no known that any measles vaccine can. It seems that the vaccine perverts the immune process which may explain the reason why those who are vaccinated can get measles over and over without developing any natural immunity and may not be able to pass immunity onto their unborn child through the placenta.
In Post Vaccine Diseases of the Central Nervous System : Preliminary Results from the Mediterranean Journal of Surgery and Medicine Number 2 1996 On page 71...."Most vaccines have in their composition Thimerosal which has been the reported cause of neurologic and gastrointestinal (mainly related to the purinic nervous pathway) symptoms(6,7) These actions are not dose related."
"No batch of vaccine can be proved safe before it is given to children." -- Surgeon General of the United States, Leonard Scheele, addressing an AMA convention in 1955
"The only safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used" -- Dr. James A. Shannon, National Institutes of Health
"In this article we begin to address the subject of vaccinosis, the general name for chronic dis-ease caused by vaccines. For some readers the very idea that vaccines are anything but wonderful and life-saving may come as a surprise, and it's not a very pleasant one. After all, the general population pictures vaccines as one of modern medicine's best and brightest moments, saving literally millions from the scourge of diseases like poliomyelitis and smallpox." --Dr. Richard Pitcairn D.V.M., Ph.D
"Pumping more vaccines into the body without understanding such basics as how they'll affect immune system function over time borders on the criminal." --Nicholas Regush, ABCNEWS.com
In the United States during the period 1980-1985, 55 cases of paralytic polio were reported. Of these cases, 51 were caused by the oral vaccine and 4 occurred in people returning from developing countries. (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), published by the United States Center for Disease Control. International notes: Imported paralytic poliomyelitis - United States, 1986; 35, 671-674.)
Of the reported 18 cases of paralytic polio in 1977, three of the patients were persons who were in the United States but who were not residents, and 2 of the other 15 victims apparently contracted the disease abroad. Three cases occurred in recent vaccine recipients, and 10 cases had been in close contact with recently vaccinated people. Only 3 cases occurred in persons "without known vaccine association". (Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), January 23, 1978.)
A study undertaken at the University of California, Los Angeles, under the sponsorship of the Food and Drug Administration, and which has been confirmed by other studies, links DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) vaccination, and more specifically the pertussis component, to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). This study found that 53 of 145 SIDS victims whose families were interviewed had received a DPT vaccination within 4 weeks. The authors conclude that "the excess of deaths in the 24 hours and first week following immunization and the absence of deaths in the fourth week following immunizations were significant." They call for more studies to substantiate their findings, despite the fact that this is already the third investigation, and all 3 have pointed in the same direction. (Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, 1983. Possible temporal association between diphtheria - tetanus toxoid - pertussis vaccination and sudden infant death syndrome. Baraff, L.J., Ablon, W.J., Weiss, R.C.)
A report on 479 whooping cough patients in the US states that 60 percent of patients had received less than 3 doses of DPT vaccine, while the other 40 percent of victims had been fully vaccinated (three doses or more). (Weekly Report, Centers for Disease Control, July 2, 1982.)
Because of the obvious dangers of the whooping cough component of the DPT vaccine, physicians are assuring parents of the "safety" of the other two components of the triple antigen - diphtheria and tetanus (DT), although some doctors have a different view. "It is unnecessary to give a routine booster of diphtheria and tetanus vaccine every 10 years... The benefits of the procedure do not justify the risks." (Lancet, May 11, 1985. Mathias, R.G. and Schechter, M.T.)
A report on a study of 11 healthy individuals to determine the effects of routine tetanus booster vaccinations, showed that the vaccinations weaken the immune system of the recipients. (New England Journal of Medicine, January 19, 1984.)
As reported by a Chicago Board of Health, during an outbreak of diphtheria in Chicago in 1969, four of the 16 victims had been fully vaccinated against the disease, and 5 others had received one or more doses of the vaccine of which 2 of these showed evidence of "full immunity". (The People's Doctor, April 1978, Mendelsohn, R.)
A vast number of children who were injected with a killed measles vaccine between 1963 and 1968 in the United States are now subject, as young adults to what is called "atypical measles". This is a very severe form of the disease in which it appears that, because of the vaccination, there is an increased susceptibility to measles viruses, resulting from a damaged immune response. (JAMA, 1980, Vol. 1244, No. 8, pp. 804-806.)
A review of 1600 cases of measles in Quebec, Canada, between January and May 1989 revealed that 58 per cent of school-age cases had been previously vaccinated. (MMWR, Measles - Quebec. 1989; 38: 329-330.)
Since the widespread use of the mumps vaccine, the incidence of the disease has shifted to adolescents and adults who are much more susceptible to the complications of testicular and ovarian infection which can lead to sterility. During the period between 1967 and 1971 the annual average cases of mumps in persons greater or equal to 15 years of age was 8.3 percent; in 1987 this same age group accounted for 38.3 percent of cases, which is more than an eightfold increase. (MMWR, Mumps - United States, 1985-1988. 1989; 38: 101-105.)
The HEW reported in 1970 that as much as 26 percent of children receiving rubella vaccination, in national testing programs, developed arthalgia or arthritis. Many had to seek medical attention and some were hospitalised to test for rheumatic fever and rheumatoid arthritis. (Science, US, March 26, 1977.)
This vaccine has been shown to cause serious reactions including convulsions, anaphylactoid allergic reactions, serum sickness-like reactions and death. (Pediatrics, 1987, Milstien et al., 80: 270-274.)
A case-control study has shown that 41 percent of meningitis occurred in children vaccinated against the disease. The vaccine's protective efficacy was minus 58 percent. This means that children are much more likely to get the disease if they are vaccinated. (JAMA, 1988, Osterholm et al., 260: 1423-1428.)
"The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons." (Review article: 50 REFS. Dept. of Internal Medicine, Mayo Vaccine Research Group, Mayo Clinic and Foundation, Rochester, MN. Archives of Internal Medicine. 154(16):1815-20, 1994 Aug 22. )
Measles vaccination produces immune suppression which contributes to an increased susceptibility to other infections. Clinical Immunology and Immunopathology, May 1996; 79(2): 163-170.
Early in this century, the Philippines experienced their worst smallpox epidemic ever after 8 million people received 24.5 million vaccine doses; the death rate quadrupled as a result. (Physician William Howard Hay's address of June 25, 1937; printed in the Congressional Record)
"Our children face the possibility of death or serious long-term adverse effects from mandated vaccines that aren't necessary or that have very limited benefits" --Jane M. Orient, MD, AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons) Executive Director.
"There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age." --Paul Frame, M.D., Journal of Family Practice
"Official data shows that large scale vaccination has failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection" --Dr Sabin, developer of Polio vaccine.
"All vaccination has the effect of directing the three values of the blood into or toward the zone characteristics of cancer and leukaemia...Vaccines do predispose to cancer and leukaemia." --Professor L.Vincent - founder of Bioelectronics

Questions to ask Vaccination Advocates.
Dr. Michel Odent has linked asthma to the whooping cough vaccine. Have you read his research? What do you think?
Professor Wakefield (UK) has linked autism and crohns disease to the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. What do you think? What evidence do you have to back up your opinions?
Why is the same dose of vaccines given to a two month old as for a 5 year old?
Are you aware that Japan changed the start time for vaccinating from 3 months to two years and straight away their SIDS rate plummeted?
Do you believe in herd immunity? If so, how is it that 98% of U.S.A. children are vaccinated yet they still have outbreaks of these diseases?
Most diseases were already 90% gone before any vaccines were introduced, If this is so, how can vaccines be applauded for diseases ceasing, especially when there were no vaccines for some diseases like bubonic plague and scarlet fever?
How can an unvaccinated child be more of a risk than a vaccinated child if neither have the disease? Surely it would be the other way around in the case of the live virus vaccines? These children are assured of having the virus in their bodies to spread.
How can the Tetanus vaccine induce immunity, when contracting the disease naturally does not give immunity?
If the "so called" diphtheria vaccine, which is in fact a toxoid, works against the toxin produced by the bacteria, and not against the bacteria itself, then how did this "vaccine" help in the decline in diphtheria?
"When I was training, one in 2,500 [children were autistic]. Now it is one in 250. At the moment, the only logical explanation for this is MMR." -- Dr Kenneth Aitken, British specialist in the treatment of autism. (The Telegraph, United Kingdom, April 2, 2002)
"By the (U.S.) government's own admission, there has been a 41% failure rate in persons who were previously vaccinated against the (measles) virus." -- Dr. Anthony Morris, John Chriss, BG Young, "Occurrence of Measles in Previously Vaccinated Individuals," 1979; presented at a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology at Fort Detrick, Maryland, April 27, 1979.
"There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them, anyway." -- Dr. J. Anthony Morris (formerly Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US Federal Drug Admin.)
"Our results suggest that infants whose mothers are born since measles vaccine licensure in 1963 are significantly more susceptible to measles than are infants of older mothers and that the risk of measles increases incrementally with each year increase in the maternal year of birth." -- "Increased Susceptibility to Measles in Infants in the United States," Pediatrics, Nov. 5, 1999.
The strong association between vaccination with RRV-TV and intussusception among otherwise healthy infants supports the existence of a causal relation. -- Intussusception among infants given an oral rotavirus vaccine., Murphy TV, et al. Epidemiology and Surveillance Division, National Immunization Program, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, N Engl J Med. 2001 Feb 22;344(8):564-72.
"The (Illinois) department followed the recommendation of a panel of experts, its Immunization Advisory Committee, while rejecting the advice of others who thought the decision should be left to parents and pediatricians. But in what critics consider a conflict of interest, 5 of the committee's 18 members have financial ties to Merck, which makes the chickenpox vaccine. Two members of the committee have given talks for Merck, receiving up to $750 per speech. A third member directs a nonprofit group that has received $20,000 in grant money from the company. And two other members own stock in Merck, including one who has owned as much as $16,000 worth." - (Sun Times, January 27, 2002)
