Viral Infections
by Laurie Lynch, N.D.

A virus is defined as any of a various number of submicroscopic parasites that can infect any human, animal, plant or bacteria and often lead to very serious or even deadly diseases. A virus is "regarded  either as extremely simple microorganisms or extremely complex molecules.... that are capable of growth and multiplication only in living cells and that causes various important diseases" (Webster' Medical Dictionary). 

"On the inside viruses are neatly organized, petite packages of genetic material, shaped like rods, filaments, harpoons, or spheres. Proteins surround the package, which is called a capsid. Some viruses have an added layer of lipids that coat the capsid. Little extensions on the virus ... help the virus hunt down the target host cell" (3-D anatomy of HIV,   There are "more than 200 different viruses " (Benjamin, 2003).

"Viruses prey upon all living organisms, turning them into virus Xerox machines.  Unlike a bacterium or a cell of an animal, a virus lacks the ability to replicate on its own. A virus does contain some genetic information critical for making copies of itself, but it can't get the job done without the help of a cell's duplicating equipment, borrowing enzymes and other molecules to concoct more virus"
 (Corey Binns, 2006, Inside Look: How Viruses Invade Us,

"It's not a living organism," said immunologist Fabio Romerio of the Institute of Human Virology, founded and directed by Gallo. "It's simply a well organized molecular parasite."  "
Stuck in a microscopic purgatory somewhere between life and unlife, viruses can remain dormant for long periods of time. On the long end of the time spectrum is a variant of the herpes virus, HHV6, that infects more than 97 percent of the population without causing serious health problems. Most of us are infected at a young age, which feels like a mild case of the flu. Afterwards, the virus can harmlessly stick with us for our lifetime. HIV can also be dormant inside the body for months or even years. It can stealthily replicate at low levels, constantly producing a few new viral agents without killing the host cell. By attaching to a host cell and forcing the cell to follow its genetic orders, a virus can turn a host into a viral army-making machine"  (Binns).

"Some viruses are very specific about which cells they target, while others are less selective. Like matching puzzle pieces, the virus searches for cells to stick to. Proteins on the surface of the virus recognize its target by the proteins or sugars on the surface of the host cell. For example, a protein called GP120 sits on the surface of HIV and allows the virus to attach to the target cell. GP120 binds to two proteins on the cell. After the proteins connect, the virus delivers its genetic material into the cell.  HIV only has a limited number of proteins, so it relies on the host cell's proteins to synthesize new genetic material, including more GP120,
and regulate its replication.  Viruses come prepared with various amounts and types of genetic material. Some viruses carry double-stranded
DNA, while others, like HIV, have only a single strand of RNA. The kind of genetic material a virus carries determines how the replication process works inside the host cell. An infected host cell becomes a virus factory"  (Binns).

"In the case of HIV, each infiltrated cell produces and spits out hundreds of new viral particles. The whole hostile takeover, from the time when HIV attaches itself to a host cell and releases new HIV progeny, takes one to two days. If HIV production is vigorous, it kills the cell immediately. Otherwise, the cell will survive just a few more days. 

"Viruses wreak havoc in other ways as well. Some viruses have been linked to diseases. Researchers have suggested that a specific variant of herpes virus may cause the neurogenerative disease multiple sclerosis.  A number of viruses have been proven to cause cancer. Human T-cell leukemia viruses, HTLV1 and HTLV2, infect blood cells and cause several diseases, including a rare cancer of the immune system's own T-cells. The human papillomavirus (HPV) is known to cause cervical cancer." ( Binns).

Some of the most common or best known viruses include diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, meningitis, measles, hepatitis, pneumonia, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV),  herpes, smallpox, multiple sclerosis, human papilloma virus, influenza, and common cold.

The following article published in my weekly Healthy Lifestyles column in the local news paper, the Sand Spur, explains about the common cold virus.

Who said there was no cure for the common cold?
by Laurie Lynch, ND 

It's that time of year again when people lament, "When are they ever going to come up with a cure for the common cold?"  Did you know that there all ready is a cure?  It has been published, and used successfully for years!  But to recognize and use these remedies we must change our focus from treating symptoms to eliminating causes. 

 What exactly is a cold?
"The common cold is an "acute contagious  disease of the upper respiratory tract caused by a virus and characterized by inflammation of the mucus membranes of the nose, throat, eyes, and eustachian tubes with a watery then purulent discharge" (Webster' Medical Dictionary). "A cold is a disease of the blood and digestive organs.  ...exposure to the rigors of climate or dampness may be the trigger that sets off the cold" (Alasker, p12).  Influenza is an acute highly contagious virus disease that is caused by various strains of an orthomyxovirus belonging to three major types and that is characterized by sudden onset, fever, prostration, severe aches and pains, and progressive inflammation of the respiratory mucus membrane" (Webster' Medical Dictionary).

Cold symptoms,  inflammation, fever, and watery discharge in the mucus membranes, are the immune system’s way of burning off and flushing out viruses, harmful bacteria, and toxins.  If the immune system is working properly the offending pathogens could be eliminated within minutes to a few hours.

What is the conventional medical approach?

  •   Cold medicines suppress the symptoms and drive the disease deep into the tissues, causing damage and chronic conditions. Antiviral drug side effects include nervousness, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and lightheadedness, and gastrointestinal disorders. (CDC).

  •   "Aspirin (and other similar drugs such as Tylenol) ... has never cured anything. The relief in most cases was only temporary, ... but the damage it did to the body was most likely permanent" (Tobe, p 15).  Aspirin can cause "irritation of the stomach lining and varying amounts of internal bleeding" (Kirchmenn, p 146), memory loss, heart damage, etc. (Mc Bean).

  •   Vaccines "The greatest danger is not flu but vaccine itself. (VANGUARD, Sept. 76)" "There is no evidence anywhere in the world which would suggest that influenza vaccines have ever prevented even one case of influenza" Vaccines contain decomposed protein such as puss or putrefied eggs mixed with deadly drugs such as carbolic acid (phenol), mercury, formaldehyde (formalin), etc. Decomposed proteins can cause botulism, salmonella or other poisoning. "All vaccines are highly toxic, and the after-effects are unpredictable". The vaccine could cause instant death, paralysis, cancer, heart trouble, TB, kidney disease, liver damage, insanity, encephalitis, autism or other chronic disease (McBean).  The flu vaccine worthless at best and should be avoided. ... Many people come down with the flu shortly after receiving the shot. This is because it actually weakens the immune system, making the person more predisposed to the illness" (Marcola, 2004). "The side effects of FluMist, ... include cough, runny nose/nasal congestion, irritability, headaches, chills, muscle aches and fever... and Bell palsy" (Marcola, 2004).

  •   Antibiotics do not work on viruses and, kill the good bacteria that help build our immune system and keep fungus under control. Antibiotics "can also cause allergic reactions that may be fatal", antibiotic resistance, ear infections, fungal infections, and immune deficiency (

 What are the underlying causes of colds and flues?
"Anything that lowers physical resistance increases the tendency to have colds.  Tea (that contains caffeine), tobacco, coffee, alcohol, worry, anger, jealousy, sexual excess, prolonged exposure to heat, cold, or moisture, overwork, fatigue, close housing, and too warm clothing are some of the factors that help to produce colds, but improper eating is by far the most important cause" (Alsaker, p25).  Underlying physical cause could include:

  •   Immune Deficiency -  A cause of the common cold and flu is the immune system's  inability fight off invading germs .

  •    Environmental pollution or any irritants that weaken the mucus membranes may cause a cold, such as dust, chemical fumes, airborne particulates, smoke, fungal spores and micotoxins, or insufficient oxygen.

  •   Genetically engineered foods (80% of restaurant and processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients).  In the process of genetically engineering, a pathogenic virus is inserted into the gene to activate it. The virus can combine with other viruses to create new strains of viruses. 

     “According to a World Health Organization report, at least thirty new diseases, including AIDS, Ebola, and Hepatitis C, have emerged over the past twenty years, while old infectious diseases, such as TB, cholera, malaria, and diphtheria, are coming back … (and) are becoming completely … resistant to… antibiotics… And “new lethal viruses continue to be created in GE labs” (Ho, Letter to New Zealand Royal Commission) A super virus was accidentally created when another immunosuppressive cytokine, interleukin 4, was combined with mouse pox virus [6]. (Prof. Joe Cummins).

    Dr. Pusztai and Dr. Ewen, a Scottish pathologist concluded that "damage to the rats intestines and stomach linings-apparently a severe viral infection-most likely was caused by…a promoter derived from the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus” (R. Cummins p33; S Ewen and A. Pusztai, pp. 1353- 1354).  Dr. Ho and others warn that ‘The use of the Cauliflower Mosaic Viral Promoter has the potential to reactivate dormant viruses or create new viruses…, and it is gene-spliced…into nearly all genetically engineered foods” (R. Cummins, pp. 33,34).  Researchers show that ingested virus genes from GM foods may be taken up by body cells, the blood serum and blood cells (R. Schubbert, et al, pp. 962-966 Proc., Natl. Acad.Sci; New Scientist, 4;  Doerfler et al, Trends in Biotechnology. 15, 297-301, 1997).For the purpose of manipulating, replacing and transferring genes, genetic engineers use artificial vectors, which are made from viruses and other infectious agents  (HO p. 19).     “The process… involves using special chemical enzymes (most of which are disease causing agents (Mc Hughes, p. 59) as scissors, extracting selected genes from the donor organism (i.e. animals, plants, insects, soil micro-organisms, bacteria, and viruses), synthesizing and making copies of this genetic material, genetic promoters, and vectors (“All of which are parasites that have the ability to invade cells and insert themselves into the cell’s genome, causing genetic damage”)  (Ho, p. 53).  In the process, genes from viruses of all these species are picked up and create new pathogens” (R. Cummins. p.23)

  •    Medicinal drugs and other chemicals overwork the liver, adrenals, and organs of elimination, damage the immune system, and cause a variety of harmful side effects.  
    drugs and chemotherapy damage the immune system and make us more     susceptible to viruses and other pathogens.                                                                                                   
    * Cold medicines suppress the symptoms and drive the disease deep into the tissues, causing damage and chronic conditions. Antiviral drug side effects include nervousness, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and lightheadedness, and gastrointestinal disorders, according to the CDC.
    * "Aspirin (and other similar drugs such as Tylenol) may treat the symptoms temporarily, but can cause irritation of the stomach lining, internal bleeding, memory loss, heart damage, etc.
    * Vaccines are a greater danger than the flu, according to a Sept. ‘76 article in the Vanguard. Vaccines contain decomposed protein such as puss or putrefied eggs mixed with deadly drugs such as carbolic acid (phenol), mercury, formaldehyde (formalin), neomycin (a toxic wide-spectrum antibiotic that kills beneficial bacteria needed to control fungus, and build proteins and vitamins). Decomposed proteins can cause botulism, salmonella or other poisoning. Side effects could include instant death, paralysis, cancer, heart trouble, TB, kidney disease, liver damage, insanity, encephalitis, autism, various infections, or other chronic disease.  “Many people come down with the flu shortly after receiving the shot. This is because it actually weakens the immune system, making the person more predisposed to the illness. The possible side effects of FluMist include cough, runny nose/nasal congestion, irritability, headaches, chills, muscle aches and fever, and Bell palsy, says Dr. Joseph Mercola.  These “side effects” sound like flue to me.

    *  Antibiotics
    do not work on viruses and, kill the good bacteria that help build our immune system and keep fungus under control. Antibiotics can also cause fatal allergic reactions: antibiotic resistance; ear, urinary tract, and fungal infections; chronic fatigue; and immune deficiency.
    , such as chloroform and ether" can cause colds and even pneumonia, says Dr. Alsaker.             
    * Antibacterial soaps and cleaners

  •   Chronic stress whether from physical or emotional causes undermines the immune system.

  •   Improper eating is by far the most important cause" says Dr Alsaker.  Most colds are caused by digestive disturbances caused by chewing food improperly, combining too many foods, eating too often, eating when  overly excited, worried, fatigued, or by eating concentrated foods that cause fermentation and irritating poisons. Then the mucus membranes secrete excess mucus to relieve the irritation    

What are the safe effective alternative remedies?
"I regard natural antiviral remedies as more effective than pharmaceutical ones. ... Natural remedies are basically free of side-effects, and they are ... effective against all viruses as well as against bacteria and fungi" (Last).

Steps to improve resistance to and/or eliminate infection:

  •   Alkalize your system to prevent the growth of viruses and fungi. 
  •   Avoid pollution and chemicals and other above causes.
  •   Early morning sun for at least 15 minutes a day helps strengthen the immune system.
  •   Intestinal Cleansing
  •   Cleansing wastes, chemicals and toxins with the right cleansing herbs
  •   Eliminating Allergies is important because allergy weakens the immune system and can cause cold symptoms.
  •   A wellness consultation with Laurie Lynch, N.D. will provide details on herbs and other nutrients that help cleanse the blood and intestinal tract, remove mucus, and assist your immune system to quickly eliminate viruses and other pathogens.   To learn the right foods, herbs, and nutritional supplements for your unique situation, call Dr. Laurie for an appointment  today @ The Living Well health & Education Center (910) 426-5159.
  •   Eat properly                                                                                                                                                            
    * Avoid foods that trigger or aggravate a cold,
    such as mucus forming foods (dairy, wheat or any food containing gluten), heavy meals and over cooked foods; immune system damaging foods such as sugar, caffeine, alcohol; tobacco;  acidic foods, such as tomato, vinegar, processed orange juice or any processed fruit juice.                                                                                                                                                                    

          * Eat foods that fight viruses:

  •   Apples help kill infectious viruses, are an alkaline, eliminative food containing virus-fighting pectin, and benefit the lymphatic system.
  •  Chili peppers are a great decongestant.
  • Vitamin C foods such as lemon, green pepper, kiwi, papaya, cantaloupe, parsley, and broccoli.
  • Vitamin A foods: carrot, yam, beet, sweet potato, and green leafy vegetables.
  • Millet, an alkalizing grain, contains B vitamins, protein, and complex carbohydrates. 
  • Raw honey contains healing nutrients and has slight antiviral, antibiotic properties.

Laurie Lynch, ND

     (Unfinished draft)

 Massive worldwide immunization programs are being promoted and forced on us by the medical/pharmaceutical establishments as well as government officials and the school boards.  Proponents say that these immunizations will prevent disease, and have already eliminated many formerly prevalent diseases such as small pox, and polio.  However more and more doctors and other health care professionals are speaking out against these immunizations, and more studies are coming to light that show that the immunizations actually pose more harm than benefit.  Let's take a look at some of these study results, statistics, and doctor's testimonies.

 What is the theory behind immunizations?
"The pasteurian theory that bacteria causes disease cannot pass the rigid test of modern investigation…one of our leading scientists, Dr. Rene DuBos, said,'Viruses and bacteria are not the causes of disease, there is something else... Most human beings carry throughout life, a variety of microbial agents, potentially pathogenic for them; only when something happens which upsets the equilibrium between host and parasite does infection develop into disease'"
(Airola, P. 285).  "The Pasteurian germ theory of disease seemed logical and simple…but… its validity is questioned more and more. It is evident, as two of the world's most prominent investigators of immunization hazard, Drs. Archie Kalokerinos and Glen Dettman, of Australia,…wrote: 'Sometimes the disease is present without the germ, and more often than not, so-called pathogenic germs are present when there is no indication of disease... As a contemporary of Pasteur, Professor A Bechamp, explained, "This development (of disease) not on the presence of dormant bacteria per se, but on the nutritional status of the cell" (Airola, p. 273).

What exactly are the various immunizations?
*  DPT Vaccine combines diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus viruses.

  •  DIPHTHERIA is “an acute contagious bacterial disease and is characterized by the formation of a fibrinous pseudomembrane on the mucosa, usually that of the respiratory tract.”  It starts with a sore throat and fever (Merck p.781).  

  •  WHOOPING COUGH (Pertussis) is “an acute, highly communicable, infectious disease, characterized by a paroxysmal or spasmodic which usually ends with a prolonged, high-pitched crowing inspiration, commonly known as the whoop, and occasionally accompanied by vomiting.”  It is caused by bacteria, and early symptoms are a runny nose and cough (Merck, p. 745)

  •  TETANUS (Lockjaw) is “an acute infectious disease characterized by more or less persistent tonic spasms of voluntary muscles, plus tonic convulsions.”  It is caused by bacteria that usually enter a wound.  Symptoms begin with stiffness of the jaw (Merck p. 841).  

The DPT vaccine contains many toxic substances such as "diphtheria bacterium, pertussis organisms, tetanus toxoid, sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, formaldehyde, hydrochloric acid, aluminium and mercury" (Karpasea-Jones, 2000).  DTaP Vaccine - made from Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine produced using formaldehyde, thimerosal, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, polysorbate 80, gelatin (1997 Physicians' Desk Reference). "A unidose of the Pasteur DTP contains 0.5 ml of vaccine, of which 0. 005 ml is phenoxyethanol (excipient) and 0.1 mg formic aldehyde for 1.25 mg of aluminium hydroxide (preservative)" (Simon).

*  SMALL POX Vaccine - "Small Pox is an acute, highly contagious disease, initiated by sudden severe constitutional symptoms and characterized by a progressive coetaneous eruption often resulting in permanent pits and scars on healing.”   It is caused by a virus.  Symptoms include “chills, high fever, and great prostration… headache, backache, muscular pains… Persistent vomiting and convulsions are common in small children…rash.  On the 3rd day the characteristic eruption appears” (Merck p.738).

*  FLU Vaccines - FLU (Influenza) is "a highly contagious acute disease caused by a filterable virus and characterized by fever, prostration, aches and pains, and inflammation of the respiratory mucus membranes" (Merck, p. 754)Flu shots  contain many toxic substances such as "Influenza virus, haemaglutinin and neuraminidase antigens A and B strains, gelatin, mercury, formaldehyde, sodium chloride, mashed chick embryos, neomycin" (Karpasea-Jones, 2000).  Neomycin is "a broad spectrum highly toxic antibiotic or mixture of antibiotics produced by a bacterium of the genus Streptomyces (S. Fradiae)" (Webster's Medical Dictionary, p. 451)

  •  HiB (Haemophilus Influenzae Type B) "contains toxic ingredients such as Tetanus Toxoid Conjugate, ammonium sulfate, formalin, sucrose, thimerosal" (contains mercury), as well as Hib saccarides cultured on cow's brains, crm protein, sodium chloride, aluminium hydroxide, mercury" (Karpasea-Jones, 2000), and polyribosylribitol, in a medium of semi-synthetic Attenuvax, and/or chemically defined, yeast based.

  •  Fluzone is the most common type of flu vaccine given to children. Each dose contains 25 ug of mercury. "CDC recommendations include administering the flu vaccine to children beginning at six months of age and then on an annual basis, for the rest of their lives" (Mercola, 2004).

  •  Fluvirin Influenza Virus Vaccine is produced using embryonic fluid (chicken egg), neomycin, polymyxin, thimerosal (preservative with mercury), betapropiolactone.

  •  FluShield Influenza Virus Vaccine, Trivalent, Types A&B is produced using gentamicin sulfate, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, thimerosal, tri(n)butylphosphate, in a medium of chick embryos.

*   POLIO Vaccine - Polio is "an acute virus infection in which only a small percentage of those infected develop clinical signs, consisting of fever, headache, stiff neck and back, and sometimes flaccid paralysis of various muscle groups" (Merck, p. 748).  The polio vaccine contains 3 types of live polio virus, magnesium chloride, amino acid, polysorbate 80, purified water, neomycin, sulphate, streptomycin, penicillin and monkey kidney cell cultures" (Karpasea-Jones, 2000). It could also contain
formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze),  streptomycin, polymyxin B, in a medium of  VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells.

*   MENINGITIS C Vaccine - Meningitis is usually caused by bacteria that cause inflammation of any of the three meninges, the membranes that envelop the brain and spinal chord (Webster's Medical Dictionary, p. 406, 407).  The Meningitis C vaccine contains meningococcal group C oligosaccharide and corynebacterium, diphteriae crm protein (fails to disclose what vaccine is cultured on), aluminium phosphate, sodium chloride and water" (Karpasea-Jones, 2000). Menomune
Meningococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine is produced using thimerosal, lactose (allergy-causing milk sugar), in a medium of  freeze dried polysaccharride antigens from Neisseria Meningitidis.

*   MMR Vaccine (Biavax)- Measles is a contagious acute disease characterized by fever, cough, inflammation and discharge from mucus membranes of the upper respiratory tract, conjunctivitis, and rash. The MMR vaccine contains live measles virus, live mumps virus, live rubella virus, chick embryo, human foetal cells, neomycin, sorbitol, hydrolized  gelatin (Karpasea-Jones, 2000), in a medium of human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue).

*   HEPATITIS Vaccines - Hepatitis B is an inflammation of the liver usually caused by a virus.  The vaccine contains Hepatitis B virus gene, aluminium hydroxide, mercury, formaldehyde. For the genetically engineered vaccine: aluminium hydrochloride, sodium chloride and mercury" (Karpasea-Jones, 2000). This is genetically engineered, which means it contains tumor-causing bacteria and pathogenic viruses.
Hepatitis A vaccine (Havrix) "is produced using formalin, aluminum hydroxide, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), polysorbate 20, residual MRC5 proteins (from medium) medium: human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue)" (1997, Physicians' Desk Reference).

*   AIDS Vaccine -

 *  ANTHRAX vaccine

*   HPV (cervical cancer)

*   LYME Disease Vaccine- "Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness that can cause profound fatigue, headache, fever and severe muscle pain" ()..
*   RSV

*   RABIES is an acute virus disease of the nervous system that is transmitted by infective saliva and can cause paralysis and death.  Rabies Vaccine is produced using betapropiolactone, aluminum phosphate, sodium ethylmercurithiosalicylate (thimerosal), phenol red, in a medium of medium: fetal rhesus monkey lung cells.

*   CHICKEN POX is an acute, infectious disease caused by the Varicella, a type of Herpes virus.  Varicella Virus Vaccine Live is produced using sucrose, phosphate, glutamate, processed gelatin, in a medium: human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue).

*   SHINGLES Vaccine

*   ROTAVIRUS is a cause of diarrhea in infants and was recommended in June 1998 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for every infant to prevent serious diarrhea.  Rotavirus Vaccine, Live, Oral, Tetravalent, is produced using 1 rhesus monkey rotavirus, 3 rhesus-human reassortant (genetically engineered) viruses, sucrose, monosodium glutamate (MSG, a neurotoxin that can damage the brain and nervous system), potassium monophosphate, potassium diphosphate, fetal bovine serum, neomycin sulfate, amphotericin B medium: fetal rhesus (monkey) diploid cell line.  

*   PNEUMONIA is an infectious lung disease  Pneumococcal Vaccine Polyvalent is produced using phenol (caustic poisonous acidic compound from coal tar) and capsular polysaccharides from the 23 most prevalent pneumococcal types.


 *   TB Vaccine -

 How effective are immunizations? 
"The proponents of mass vaccinations claim that artificial immunization programs around the world can be credited with the sharp decline in the prevalence of our most killing infectious diseases"
(Airola, p. 274).

What do the independent experts say?
"Actual statistics and records from around the world show that this is a totally unsubstantiated claim.  Actually most of the major infectious diseases had declined approximately 90 percent before the introduction of compulsory immunizations and antibiotics" (Life, Death, and Medicine, Scientific American, 1973).  According to most investigators, the reason for the decline was improved hygiene, sanitary engineering, and better nutrition (Powles,  D., National Times, Nov. 12,1973).  "t is well known that small pox (had) practically disappeared in all areas of the world, both in countries with compulsory vaccination as well as in countries where small pox vaccinations were never instituted" (Airola, p. 274).

  • Silvie Simon, French journalist/author of books and articles about the dangers of vaccinations, warned that "When it is argued that an individual does not develop a disease because he has been vaccinated and therefore immunized, the reality is that he has lost the vitality to react. Chronic illness can intervene where energy level is low, where the organism cannot respond vigorously because its vitality has been sapped from within. ...Immunity acquired naturally is long term; that from vaccination, if any, is time-limited (La Presse Médicale, Vol 17, Supplement No 1, May 1998). ... "During almost 50 years the countries of the West have systematically vaccinated, covering virtually their entire populations but, curiously, it is in these countries that diphtheria and polio have reappeared. Hence we must wonder if the vaccines have been as effective as claimed and if the strains used for them have changed, for we are seeing the re-emergence of more aggressive pathologies than those we thought to have been mastered". ... If we look at the experience of the USA, the overall incidence of acute hepatitis B since vaccination for it began has not diminished but has increased from 55 to 63 per 100000 between 1981 and 1987. (Dr C Sicot,, et al, Le Concours Médical, No 8, 1993, Vol 115; Silvie Simon, 2004).
  •  J. Tissot, Professor of Physiology, warned that “Immunity by vaccination is acquired only when it confers the chronic phase of the disease – which is really to be avoided – a phase that entails fearsome complications in the short or long term.” (J. Tissot, PhD, 1946). 
  •  Lynne Taggart, health journalist and campaigner against iatrogenic diseases (diseases caused by prescription drug) explained that, “Vaccines are notoriously ineffective against viruses that rapidly mutate and recombine.  Even vaccines against bacterial pathogens perform erratically...  Vaccines can cause the very diseases against which they are supposed to offer protection… In Britain there have been national campaigns since the fifties and sixties to mass-immunize children against infectious diseases… The efficacy of these vaccines has been seriously questioned.  They have been linked to hundreds of deaths and cases of permanent brain damage and other illnesses” (Ho, p. 261).

  •   "William Howard Hay, MD., in his testimony to the Medical Freedom Society on the bill to abolish compulsory vaccinations, said that he had an ample opportunity to observe first hand that vaccinations did not offer any protection in epidemic situations.  He supervised an epidemic of 33 cases of smallpox of which 29 victims had vaccination histories 'and a good scar to prove it,' some of them vaccinated within the previous year.  He also reported on a study at Crook County, Illinois Hospital, where one half of the nursing staff was vaccinated against diphtheria, and the other half was not. Diphtheria broke out soon afterwards, infecting both immunized and unimmunized, with the total of cases much higher among the vaccinated. (Reprint from Congressional Record on Compulsory Vaccination, available from Health Research, PO Box 70, Mokelumne Hill, Ca.) (Airola, p. 275).

  •  Dr. Edward B. Shaw stated, "I doubt that the decrease in pertussis (whooping cough) is due to the vaccine, which is a very poor antigen and an extremely dangerous one, with many serious complications… The decline in pertussis began long before the widespread use of vaccine" ( Airola, p. 274).

  •  “Results of laboratory and clinical research performed during last 15 years strongly suggest that AIDS vaccines based on gp120 cannot be effective and, more importantly, may not be safe” (Ho, Veljkovic, Internet).  

  •  “In the largest vaccination scheme in India, involving 350,000 people, the vaccine gave no protection whatsoever” (Ho, p. 261). 

  •   “An outbreak of measles occurred among a fully immunized secondary school population in Corpus Christi, Texas, in the mid-eighties” (Ho, p. 261). 

  •  "The flu vaccine, whether in the shot or nasal form, is worthless at best and should be avoided" (Mercola, 2004).

  •  "Since 1980, death rates in the over 65 age group from influenza have been increasing, while flu vaccination rates since 1987 also increased from 33% to 65%. These figures show that vaccination is the wrong approach for achieving improved health or reducing the number of deaths. In fact, studies of large scale compulsory flu vaccination in Japanese school-aged children showed the vaccine to be ineffective and conducive to law suits due to adverse side effects" (Flu Vaccine Fact).

  •  Dr. J. Anthony Morris, one of the government’s top experts on vaccines, stated that the advertising that "You can die from swine flu," is "absolutely false. There’s no evidence that swine flu is a killer . . . It is not contagious . . . There is no evidence that swine flu will spread. It has not been isolated anywhere since it was (allegedly) found in Feb. at Fort Dix, N.J." While addressing a meeting in Los Angeles he said, "...The swine flu vaccine is worthless. There’s no evidence that it will protect you against swine flu because there’s been no cases of swine flu to test it against... Effectiveness of flu vaccine is comparatively low. Flu vaccine made from inactivated virus particles such as now being manufactured, produces the wrong kind of immunity. It elicits systemic antibody that can be measured in the blood, but does not produce the local antibody in lungs and nose needed to protect against infection to the virus if later infected" (McBean, 1976).

  •  Dr. Weidman, of the University of Florida, a recognized virologist, also agrees that the swine flu vaccine is inadequate to do any good. Doctors both here and in England found that their tests on laboratory animals were not encouraging. When the dose was potent enough to kill the virus it also killed the animals and when it was weakened enough to be safe for animals and people it was too weak to do any good, and was no protection. ...   "The claims that influenza vaccine will or can prevent influenza cannot be made legitimately since there is no evidence anywhere in the world which would suggest that influenza vaccines have ever prevented even one case of influenza.  The whole swine flu scare was based on the death of only one soldier at Fort Dix, New Jersey... There was never any real evidence that he even had swine flu. There was a wide divergence of opinion among the doctors as to the real cause of his death. ... An official diagnosis pronounced his death to be from A-Victoria flu, and not swine flu. All the soldiers at the camp had been inoculated with Port Chalmers flu vaccine, which was claimed to contain antigens to protect against all strains of flu. Shortly after the shots over 500 men got sick with the flu anyway, thus proving that the flu vaccine is a total failure and does not protect from the flu or anything else. 66 more were hospitalized at Fort Knox about the same time. We do not have the report from all the army camps but, it is quite certain there were a large number of cases of serious vaccine poisoning—no doubt, called by some other name, and death certificates falsified as is usually the case with vaccination deaths. The death certificates of vaccine poisoning usually read, "died of pneumonia" or hepatitis, or meningitis or something else...  Many coroners have been given orders by the doctors not to give out the swine flu casualties" (McBean, 1976).

  •  Dr. S. Tenpenny explained that "There are no guarantees that the influenza viruses selected for the vaccine will be the identical strains circulating during a given flu season. In fact, it has recently been announced that this year's flu vaccine does not include the strain that is being reported by doctors in the community called the “A Fujian” strain. Outbreaks have been reported in Texas, Colorado and elsewhere that involve strains that do not match the current flu vaccine. CDC tests have confirmed that more than 80 per cent of the 55 strains of influenza virus isolated thus far are the A Fujian strain. Even so, the CDC still maintains that the current vaccine could provide cross-protection against the new variant, but the fact is, no one knows for sure.  "Moreover, the majority of illnesses characterized by fever, fatigue, cough and aching muscles are not caused by the influenza virus. Non-influenza viruses (e.g., rhinoviruses respiratory syncytial virus [RSV], adenoviruses, and parainfluenza viruses) can cause symptoms referred to influenza-like illnesses (ILI). Certain bacteria, such as Legionella spp., Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, and Streptococcus pneumoniae, have been documented as the causes of ILI". (Dr Sherri Tenpenny,

  •  Dr. Paavo Airola says, "I do not endorse compulsory immunizations.  I believe that every parent should have the right to make his own choice.  In case you didn't know, there are federal laws which exempt those who do not wish to be immunized because of conscientious objections based on personal beliefs as well as when inoculations are medically contra-indicated. Thus the present nationwide drive by school boards to bar the admittance of unvaccinated children is illegal.  "As an article in the International Medical Digest stated, "There is no sound basis for the assumption that every child or infant should be inoculated with every available vaccine; on the contrary, there may be a valid reason for omitting any or all available antigens… The incidence of vaccine-induced morbidity has increased alarmingly.  The profession must re-evaluate the principles, purposes, and hazards of immunization and reassess current procedures" (Airola, p. 289).

What are the health hazards of immunizations? 
" Dr. James A. Shannon, of the National Institute of Health. He stated: "THE ONLY SAFE VACCINE IS A VACCINE THAT IS NEVER USED. ... All vaccines are dangerous drugs.  ALL VACCINES ARE POISON! Vaccines contain decomposed protein such as that which is taken from pustules on sick animals or putrefied eggs mixed with deadly drugs such as carbolic acid (phenol), mercury, formaldehyde (formalin), etc. Decomposed proteins can cause botulism, salmonella or other types of body poisoning. It’s no wonder people drop dead after the shots.  All doctors who know the subject know and admit that all vaccines are highly toxic, and the after-effects are unpredictable. No doctor, laboratory technician or scientist can possibly determine the reaction the vaccine will have on each individual. It is impossible to know, in advance, the toleration point for poison which each person has. Therefore it is a deadly gamble—like Russian roulette—as to whether the vaccine will cause instant death (and that sometimes happens), or paralysis a few hours later, or cancer, heart trouble or TB a few years later, or kidney disease, liver damage, insanity (post vaccinal encephalitis—inflammation of the brain caused by vaccines) or some other chronic disease somewhere along the way"  (McBean, 1976).

“Vaccines produced in transgenetic plants for use in humans and domestic livestock have an increased potential to generate new pathogenic viruses with extremely broad host ranges. (Ho, p. 262).  “Gorecki and Simons (1999) pointed out a danger to the fetus in DNA vaccination of the mother.  That danger was the creation of tolerance in the fetus leading to individuals more susceptible to infection and/or they may become carriers” ( Professor Joe Cummins).  “Gene therapy vectors and naked DNA vaccines can cause acute toxic shock reactions and severe delayed immunological reactions… Finally, unintended modification of germ-cells may result from gene therapy and vaccinations” (Ho, Ryan, Cummins, Traavik, 50).

"The extensive list of newly developed vaccinations, highly touted when brought to market, that caused horrific results... includes the first swine flu vaccine, polio vaccines, smallpox vaccine, anthrax vaccine, hepatitis B vaccine, and most recently Lyme disease vaccine that crippled approximately 750,000 people within months of its release and prior to its recall by the FDA. Most people fail to realize all vaccines carry a list of ingredients that typically increase human disease and death (i.e., morbidity and mortality). These include toxic elements and chemicals such as mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and formalin (used to preserve corpses), MSG, foreign genetic material, and risky proteins from various species of bacteria, viruses, and animals that have been scientifically associated with triggering autoimmune disorders and certain cancers. A growing body of scientific evidence strongly suggests vaccines are largely responsible for increasing cases of autism and other learning disabilities, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Lupus, MS, ALS, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, hay fever, allergies, chronic draining ear infections, type 1 autoimmune diabetes, and many, many more pandemics. These chronic ailments are said to require long-term medical care for the patients' management causing toxic side effects resulting in America's leading killer--iatrogenic disease. That is, vaccines and other pharmaceutical industry inventions are literally killing or disabling millions with little effort on the part of government officials and their drug industry cohorts to arrest this scourge" (Horowitz).

"Harry Nelson, Medical Editor for L.A. Times, reported on an American Cancer Society Seminar for Science Writers, and announced that microbiologists have uncovered new findings that incriminate vaccination. One of the participants was Dr. Robert M. Simpson of Rutgers University, N.J., who stressed that ‘Immunization programs against flu, measles, mumps, and polio may actually be seeding humans with RNA to form proviruses which will then become latent cells throughout the body . .. Some of these could be molecules in search of a disease, which under proper conditions become activated and cause a variety of diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus erythematosus, Parkinson’s disease and perhaps cancer" (from the Honorof Report for June, 1976).

"There is no doubt whatsoever about their (immunizations) potential and real health hazards.  Vaccinations can be extremely dangerous and cause many health disorders, including the very disease they are purported to prevent" (Airola, p. 277)

  •  Vaccines can cause the very disease they're said to prevent.  "Immunologists are embarrassed by outbreaks of measles, polio, etc in vaccinated populations. In Medical Practice (No 467) Professor Lépine states  : “In several developing countries it is thought that a single vaccination campaign will resolve the problem. But we now see in some of these countries that the frequency of the disease has almost quintupled since vaccination” (Sylvie Simon,
    The Dayton Times, 28 May 1993, published details from a study by the Department of Health which showed that half the victims of whooping cough in 1987 and 1991 in Ohio state had been vaccinated against it according to their medical records. It also disclosed for the same state that 72 per cent (2720 cases) of victims of measles two years earlier had received the measles vaccine" (S. Simon, 2004).

  • "Paralysis is known to be a common after-effect of vaccination—any kind of vaccine—and these 75 California cases were paralyzed shortly after their flu shots"  (McBean, 1976).

  •  Instant death - In 1991 the CDC recommended that all infants get their first Hepatitis B vaccination just hours after birth. The disease is mostly spread from dirty needles and unprotected sex. It can create deadly liver disease. The vaccine has been blamed for mysterious deaths following the shots, sometimes filed as sudden infant death syndrome. One (example) is the Sept. 16, 1998, death of Lyla Rose Belkin at age 5 weeks. She died 15 hours after getting her second Hepatitis B vaccine booster shot. Michael Belkin said in a telephone interview from Seattle that his daughter was lively and alert prior to receiving the shot. She became agitated and noisy, suddenly fell asleep, and died 15 hours later. Belkin said the coroner indicated that his daughter's brain was swollen; a reaction some researchers believe could be caused by the vaccine" (Mark Benjamin, 2003).

  •   Neurological damage -  “There is no vaccine strain derived from monkeys that can be free from neurological virulence” (De Garcia Silva, 1964,). "Depending on what vaccines a child got during that period, a visit to the doctor during the 1990's may have exposed some children to 125 times the limit on mercury set by the Environmental Protection Agency.  A February 2000 draft of Verstraeten's study, obtained by United Press International, appears to show that
    thimerosal might cause brain problems.  That draft cites "increasing risks of neurological developmental disorders with increasing cumulative exposure to
    thimerosal. ... We can state that this analysis does not rule out that receipt of thimerosal-containing vaccine in children under 3 months of age may be related to an increased risk of neurologic developmental disorders," the study said (Mark Benjamin, 2003).

  •  Encephalitis can be triggered by any vaccination, according to Harris Coulter in Vaccination  : Social Violence and Criminality (North Atlantic Books, Berkeley, 1980).

  •  Demyelination, "hinders normal development of the brain with consequent pathological effects leading to handicaps and behavioural problems. In the USA one in five infants have suffered these effects. Any demyelination can be directly attributed to vaccination, for research has revealed similarities between the make-up of vaccines and the protein structure of myelin. (In Science, Vol 29, 19 July 1985). This discovery explains the appearance of auto-immune symptoms after immunisation procedures. The immune system confuses antigen with myelin and attacks the latter, hence some of the diseases that become so debilitating over time" (Simon, 2004).

  •  Cancer - "Vaccines, and even antibiotics, reduce natural resistance, with the associated effects tending to cancerisation. (Sylvia Simon, 2004).  "It was announced last year that oral polio vaccine administered (OPV) until 1964 was contaminated with the carcinogenic SV-40 monkey virus" (December 2000, Idaho Observer). "Professor Vincent has demonstrated to the Congress of Comparative Pathology that any vaccination against microbes, by upsetting the terrain, quite clearly predisposes to viral disease and cancer. ... The National Cancer Institute has published studies showing that combined vaccines can entail more general mutations or recombinations than single vaccines. It would seem logical that our regulatory system could be upset by a confusion of vaccines Taking advantage of this situation, viral particles or the debris of genetic material could lodge in the organism in such an unforeseeable and insidious way as to induce teratogenic or carcinogenic consequences in the short or long term." (S. Simon).

  •  TB - Professor Vincent has demonstrated to the Congress of Comparative Pathology that ... polio vaccination predisposes to TB. (S. Simon).

  •  Liver damage

  •  Kidney damage

  •  Immune system damage -  "Drs Kalokerinos and Dettmann of Australia’s Biological Research Institute, tell us that  : “According to sophisticated research [...] the effect of vaccination programmes on T lymphocytes shows that the immune system is substantially damaged after routine vaccinations. A significant part of these lymphocytes is mobilised by the vaccine antigens and once activated they become immunologically inert, incapable of reacting to or defending against other antigens, infections or ailments. These discoveries tend to show that infant immunological capital is depleted by current immunisation programmes”(Simon).  "The flu vaccine can actually weaken the immune system and make you more predisposed to the illness" (Joseph Mercola, DO,,  2004). "Dr Alain Scohy has noted that the vaccine dose is the same for a baby as for an adult. The baby’s immune system is incapable of establishing any protection. Abnormally stimulated or irritated tissue is likely to react by malfunctioning, then scarring and sclerosing, becoming inert and incapable of natural defense, especially in fragile infancy. ...Austrian research team established that between the third and fourteenth day after vaccination there was a significant
    reduction in OKT 4 and OKT 8 lymphocytes or, in other words, the vaccinee’s resistance was at its lowest point." (S. Simon).

  • Autoimmune diseases - Dr. Richard Shames, author of Thyroid Power, says that: "In particular, thyroid sufferers have an immune problem that is likely to be made worse by injectible vaccinations. A person with high or low thyroid has an immune system that is TH2 predominant (T-Helper Cell Type 2). All vaccinations given by injection further stimulate this particular out-of-balance situation and thus have the potential of making the autoimmune response and the resultant thyroid situation worse" (Dr. Richard Shames, 2004).

  •  AIDS/HIV - An American study “shows that antigenic provocation at the time of a tetanus booster temporarily increases HIV 1 in infected individuals and renders the uninfected more susceptible to the virus. This apart, the study suggests that bacterial or parasitical infection seems to worsen HIV and even to
    predispose to HIV infection. [...] It has also been shown that replication of HIV 1 is increased after flu or hepatitis-B vaccination of HIV patients” (Simon).

  •  Toxic Shock

  •  Alzheimer's Disease - "At present the adjuvant mainly used is aluminum hydroxide, ... And for a number of years aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease" (Simon)"Hugh Fudenberg, MD, an immunogeneticist and..., has reported that if an individual had five consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied), his/her chances of getting Alzheimer's Disease is ten times higher than if they had zero, one, or two shots" (Tenpenny).

  •  Autism -  "Scientific links between this nation's epidemic of childhood autism and the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine have been published in medical journals since 1995"(December 2000, Idaho Observer).  Mark Benjamin, UPI Investigator, gives this example: "Four days after receiving the last of a group of shots, 16-month-old Jackson was becoming withdrawn. Within two weeks he stopped responding or acknowledging his parents. Two weeks after that Jackson no longer would make eye contact. It soon became difficult to get Jackson to eat or sleep. He has had bouts of spinning uncontrollably and seizures. "Fast forward another couple of months and he was gone. The mercury was in his brain," Bono said. Years later, Bono discovered that at one point, Jackson's mercury exposure may have been more than 40 times the limit set by the EPA. Nine years later, Bono says, Jackson was diagnosed with mercury poisoning she says came from the vaccines" (Mark Benjamin, 2003).

  •  Learning disabilities

  •  Degenerative diseases - "Thimerosal, used as a preservative in most vaccines for decades, was removed after researchers linked the mercury-derivative to an entire menu of degenerative diseases which include chronic fatigue and cancer (December 2000, Idaho Observer).  

  •  Chronic fatigue -

  •  Fibromyalgia

  •  Lupus

  •  MS - "In his Dictionnaire de la Médecine Ecologique (Le Rocher, 1995), Dr Joseph Levy enumerates various factors predisposing to onset of multiple sclerosis. He cites, among others, vaccine and serums that"...  According to the noted immunologist, Professor A Good, the use of animal vaccines and serums provokes the transformation of human and animal lymphocytes. Such lymphocytes attack human cells as though they were foreign cells to be eliminated” (S. Simon).

  •  ALS

  •  Rheumatoid arthritis

  •  Asthma, hay fever, allergies - Professor Tara Shirakawa, Churchill Hospital, Oxford, has published the results of a study in Japan on 867 infants
    who received BCG vaccine. ... Thirty-six per cent developed allergies, including asthma".  The incidence of severe allergy increased significantly.
    (Science, Vol 275, 3 Jan 1997).  "At present the adjuvant mainly used is aluminum hydroxide, and this is a product that often causes serious allergies" (Simon).

  •  Nerve damage - "In VIDAL we find that each dose of the hepatitis-B vaccine (Engerix or Genhevac) – as also the DTP-polio – contains “not more than” 1250 µg of aluminium hydroxide, whereas the official non-toxic dose is 15 µg/litre of blood, and more than 150 µg is definitely toxic for the nerve cells" (Simon)

  • Chronic draining ear infections

  •  Type 1 autoimmune diabetes

  •  Erythematosus,

  •  Parkinson’s disease

  •  Heart disease - Dr. Selye of the University of Montreal, one of the world’s foremost authorities on human stress, stated, "After inoculations, elderly people and the chronically ill are particularly predisposed to have certain stress reactions such as heart failure" (Enquirer 12/21/76).  "In spite of this and other similar findings, the vaccine promoters urged all the senior citizens, the old and ill the high risk cases to be the first in line to get their shots. Because of this mad rush for profits the promoters are guilty of causing all those needless deaths of the elderly people a few hours after they had their shots.  My previous research on vaccination revealed many cases of sudden death from heart failure after vaccinations. As stated many times before, all vaccines are poison and when they are shot directly into the bloodstream they circulate throughout the body including the heart, in a matter of seconds, and continue to circulate and cause corrosion and malfunction of all the delicate tissues of the body. The heart valves are made of fragile membrane which is affected by the poisons, in such a way as to render it incapable of proper functioning, leading to heart failure. At the same time, all other vital organs are impaired by the same poisons" (Swine Flu is a HOAX!,

What diseases have been documented as caused by a specific vaccine?

  • Small Pox Vaccine - "British statistics show that smallpox attained its maximum mortality after vaccination was introduced… all the vaccines are toxic and can pose a serious health hazard to susceptible individuals, especially the very young and very old. Some of the adverse reactions to vaccines are just as bad, or even worse, than the disease itself" (Airola, p. 277).  Adverse reactions to the smallpox vaccine include disfiguring skin disorders, blindness, neurological impairments and death.
  •  Measles Vaccine -  “Many vaccine programs have left us worse off than we were before.  Over thirty years, the measles vaccine has caused vicious mutation of the disease, transformed into a disease of adults and infants, and left us with inadequate immunity to pass on to our children” (Ho, p. 261).
  •  MMR Vaccine -  The measles, mumps rubella (MMR) vaccine has been scientifically linked to the exponential increase in the incidence of autism worldwide. The National Vaccine Information Center ( reported that, of the almost 4,000,000 babies born each year in the U.S., according to current trends, 26,666 could become autistic -- that is 512 children per week, or, 73 American children per day that may be terminally afflicted with the developmental disease. The MMR/autism controversy has been growing steadily since Dr. Andrew Wakefield, a gastroenterologist from the University College Hospital in London, published his MMR/autism link findings in the esteemed British medical journal The Lancet in 1995. Dr. Wakefield showed that the “M” component of the triple-antigen MMR vaccine causes chronic inflammation of the bowel and/or increased bowel permeability that is responsible for a cluster of developmental disorders we call “autism.”  In 1999, Dr. Edward Yazbak published his findings which link MMR vaccine to autism, and Dr. Vijendra Singh of Utah State University reported this year that his studies show that the MMR vaccine causes an immune response which damages protein in the brain in a manner that causes autism (Idaho Observer, 2000).  "Attorneys for the Bush Administration asked a federal court on Monday to order that documents on hundreds of cases of autism allegedly caused by childhood vaccines be kept from the public… The court is currently hearing approximately 1,000 claims brought by the families of autistic children. The suits charge that the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, which until recently included a mercury-containing preservative known as thimerosal, can cause neurological damage leading to autism." (Todd Zwillich, Bush Asks Court To Seal MMR Vaccine Records, 2002, Reuters Limited ).
  •  Aids Vaccine - An aids vaccine created from a genetically modified simian immunodeficiency virus “is found to cause AIDS in infant and adult macaques” (Kimbrell, quoted by Ho, p. 262).
  • Polio Vaccine “A virus, even attenuated, can recover virulence – in particular the polio vaccine virus, which becomes pathogenic and generally infectious after passage through the intestines. Cases of polio in contacts of those vaccinated with oral polio vaccine are well documented” (Le Generaliste, 1985).  "The Journal of the American Medical Association (Jan. 23, 1978) reported that of the 18 cases of paralytic polio and 2 deaths from polio reported in the United States in 1977, three of the victims had received polio vaccine and 10 had been in close contact with recently immunized people.  This revelation shows that immunizations not only do not guarantee protection from disease, but might actually cause them" (Airola, p. 275).   "Vaccine manufacturer's "claims of safety, effectiveness and need have all been proved to be false during the past few weeks when the vaccine killed 113 people, nation wide, and paralyzed 75 in California alone. ... Multi-million dollar law suits followed "the devastating polio vaccine campaign of the 1950’s when the Salk, Sabin, and Cutter vaccines caused thousands of cases of polio, death, and other disasters. The law suits flooded the courts and the vaccine promoters and drug houses had to pay out damages amounting to many millions of dollars." (8).  Polio vaccination, coupled with other, routine vaccinations, contributed to overload of the immune system and evolution of AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) (Dr Jean Pilette, 1997; Sylvia Simon, 2004).
  •  Diphtheria Vaccine - "During the four years from 1941 through 1944, The Department of Health in Scotland admitted that there were 23,000 cases of diphtheria among immunized children, more than 180 of which proved fatal. On the other hand, in Sweden, diphtheria virtually disappeared without any immunizations, and in Germany, where compulsory mass immunization of children was introduced in 1940, the number of cases increased from 40,000 per year to 250,000 by 1945, virtually all among immunized children. Many other countries in Europe showed a striking increase in cases of diphtheria after compulsory immunization.  For instance, the increase in France was as much as 30 percent, in Hungary, 55 percent, and in Geneva, Switzerland, the number of cases tripled after compulsory immunization was enforced in 1933" (Hume, et al, 1947; Airola, p. 277).
  •  Anthrax vaccine - "The Anthrax vaccine, a mandatory immunization for many people serving in the US military, has been linked to dozens of serious side effects and adverse reactions. But in spite of this, the Department of Defense still insists that the defective drug is perfectly safe. And even though thousands of veterans have been permanently disabled following reactions to Anthrax vaccine side effects. ... To date, the FDA has received more than 5,000 adverse event reports for the Anthrax vaccine on its Vaccine Adverse Reporting System. At least 670 reports were classified as “serious”, and 44 resulted in deaths. Some doctors have attributed 10-15 medical conditions to the Anthrax vaccine, and the side effects include everything from hearing loss, sleep disorders and neurological problems that mimic Multiple Sclerosis" (  Other adverse reactions include bone and joint pain, skin rashes and infections, short-term memory loss, severe fatigue, headaches, tenderness, erythema, subcutaneous nodule, induration, warmth, local pruritus, arm motion limitation,  edema, axillary node tenderness, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, myalgia and arthralgia, inflammatory arthritis, respiratory difficulty, asthma, delayed hypersensitivity, lesions, diffuse hives, swollen hands, face, and feet, difficulty swallowing, anaphylaxis (which could be fatal), dizziness, seizure, tremors, aseptic meningitis, encephalitis, transverse myelitis, cerebrovascular accident, facial palsy, hearing and visual disorders, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and multiple sclerosis, pruritus, cysts, pemphigus vulgaris, cellulitis, sepsis, systemic lupus erythematosus, polyarteritis nodosa, and spontaneous abortion, aplastic anemia, neutropenia, idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura, lymphoma, leukemia, mental status changes, psychiatric disorders,  mood-cognition disorders, myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, syncope, endocarditis, angioedema, collagen vascular disease, liver abscess glomerulonephritis, kidney failure, immune deficiency, blackouts, cysts and tumors on internal organs, autoimmune illnesses, vision problems, vertigo, hormone problems such as testosterone failure in men, hemorrhaging and inability to conceive in women, and Muscle spasms, tingling and numbness in the extremities.

    "Some troops have reacted immediately to the anthrax vaccine; for others, reactions seem to set in a bit later, within days or weeks and gradually increasing in intensity. For reasons we do not understand, the fourth shot in the series tends to be the "kicker." Many troops will get through the first three shots in pretty good shape, but the fourth shot - due six months after the first three - may send them into a no-man's land of ill health from which they cannot seem to recover. Yet, other troops react immediately to the first shot; and others don't report severe problems until the fifth or sixth shot. Of course, there are those who do not seem to get sick at all. But the University of Kansas study done last year does indicate that the anthrax vaccine plays a role in a long-term decline in subjective health"
  •  Hepatitis A and B vaccines -  "In the CDC and (the Vaccine Advisory Committee's) own words, almost every newborn U.S. baby is now greeted on its entry into the world by a vaccine injection against a sexually transmitted disease for which the baby is not at risk -- because they couldn't get the junkies, prostitutes, homosexuals and promiscuous heterosexuals to take the vaccine," Belkin told a congressional panel on May 18, 1999. ...Some of the officials involved in the agency's 1991 decision to recommend that all infants receive the Hepatitis B vaccine also had close ties to vaccine manufacturers" (Mark Benjamin, 2003).  "Hepatitis-B jabs complement the damage done by the others by attacking the nervous system and provoking auto-immune problems that pave the way to premature ageing" (Sylvia Simon, 2004).  The CDC's files contain 32,731 total reports of possible reactions following Hepatitis B vaccinations since 1991, including 10,915 emergency room visits, 685 life-threatening reactions, 3,700 hospitalizations, 1,200 disabilities and 618 deaths" (Mark Benjamin, 2003).
  •  Lyme Disease Vaccine -  "The Lyme disease vaccine has been linked to an auto-immune condition resulting in chronic arthritis in a significantly large number of vaccine recipients (December 2000, Idaho Observer).  "Soon after his (Lewis Bull) second shot of the real vaccine he began to suffer from debilitating arthritis, memory loss and fatigue. Some doctors believe the Lyme vaccine side effects mirror the disease itself. 'For the first six months I could not get out of bed. The memory loss was incredible. I've played guitar all my life and I could not remember how to play guitar. I could not find the town hall and I used to go there four times a week,' he said in a recent telephone interview. Bull said his fatigue was so severe he would sleep for stretches of 22 hours or more" (Mark Benjamin, 2003).
  •  HPV (cervical cancer),
  •  Hib,
  •  Chickenpox,
  •  Shingles,
  •  Rotavirus vaccine - "The rotavirus vaccine was removed from the marketplace after it was discovered that it caused intususception -- the potentially fatal telescoping of the bowel into itself that must be corrected with surgery -- in babies who received the anti-diarrhea shot" (December 2000, Idaho Observer). Other symptoms of vaccine reaction include vomiting and eliminating blood.
  •  Pneumococcal,
  •  Meningococcal,
  •  RSV,
  •  DTaP
  •  TB
  •  FluMist nasal vaccine side effects could "include cough, runny nose/nasal congestion, irritability, headaches, chills, muscle aches and fever. Ironically, all of these symptoms bear striking similarities to the symptoms of the flu. In addition, research has shown an increased risk of Bell palsy following intranasal flu vaccination, according to the Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS).  FLUMIST's vaccine live virus is shed after vaccination so the vaccinated are advised to avoid close contact with immune-compromised individuals for at least 21 days. Some hospital personnel are asking those recently vaccinated with FLUMIST to avoid visiting patients in hospitals to prevent the risk of transmitting the vaccine strain virus to sick patients" (Marcola, 2004).
  •  Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine (LAIV): Side Effects and Adverse Reactions could include runny nose, headache, vomiting,  myalgias, nasal congestion, headache, fever, abdominal pain, asthma or reactive airways disease, sore throat, cough, chills, and tiredness/weakness. (2006,

    "All the flu vaccine sales promises were lies—proved later by the deaths and disasters within a few hours after the shots. ...The greatest danger is not flu but vaccine itself." (VANGUARD, Sept. 76; McBean, 1976).

    *  In A REPORT TO THE CONSUMER (Sept., 75), Ida Honorof presents a compilation of data from the National Institute of Health—Division of Biologic Standards, Bulletin of World Health Organization, and Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former Director of a branch of FDA Virus research. Dr. Morris’ findings show that the flu vaccine, when inhaled by lab. animals "tended to enhance cancerous tumors."

    *Pregnant women had been on the preferred list for shots until findings indicated that certain substances in flu vaccine "could pose a serious threat of fetal damage to women who might become pregnant"

     *"In the report she reviews an article by Aurora Reich, Director of Scientific Communications, published in Indianapolis Star, which states: "The virus itself (flu vaccine) has toxic properties, even after it is killed, which can cause fever and convulsions, especially in children. January Journal of Pediatrics carried the research of Doctors at Atlanta and Sheffield, England working together testing a purified killed influenza vaccine. They concluded that even the purified killed vaccine is too toxic (poison) to be given to children . .. The study showed 69% of the infants ran high fever 6 to 12 hours after vaccinations, and one had convulsions."  Other studies showed that about 10% had convulsions, and one died. One doctor pointed out that "there are 9 million children under 3 years of age. If 10% of them had convulsions, that would be 900,000 with convulsions.. (and how many deaths?) The routine vaccination of infants and children has not been recommended by the Public Health Service"  (McBean, 1976).

    * "The whole swine flu scare was based on the death of only one soldier at Fort Dix, New Jersey (One report said October, 1975 and another said February, 1976). There was never any real evidence that he even had swine flu. There was a wide divergence of opinion among the doctors as to the real cause of his death. Some even tried to blame it on a walk he took when he was ill. An official diagnosis pronounced his death to be from A-Victoria flu, and not swine flu. All the soldiers at the camp had been innoculated with Port Chalmers flu vaccine, which was claimed to contain antigens to protect against all strains of flu. Shortly after the shots over 500 men got sick with the flu anyway, thus proving that the flu vaccine is a total failure and does not protect from the flu or anything else. 66 more were hospitalized at Fort Knox about the same time. We do not have the report from all the army camps but, it is quite certain there were a large number of cases of serious vaccine poisoning—no doubt, called by some other name, and death certificates falsified as is usually the case with vaccination deaths. The death certificates of vaccine poisoning usually read, "died of pneumonia" or hepatitis, or meningitis or something else"  (McBean, 1976).

    * "The present flu vaccine they are using on the civilian population is just as ineffective and dangerous, and yet, it is being promoted all over the country with disastrous results. No matter how many casualties they have they are determined to use it as long as they can get away with it—because it is profitable. That is its one and only purpose"  (McBean, 1976).

    * "Most of the cases of flu they check are caused by the vaccine itself. ...  There is no swine flu epidemic in U.S. or anywhere else in the world, and there is not going to be one either unless the vaccine promoters carry out their plan to vaccinate all the people; then there will be a full blown epidemic of vaccine poisoning—not flu. ...There are already 113 recorded vaccine deaths and that is enough to be an epidemic of vaccine poisoning" (McBean, 1976).

    * Dr. Archie Kalokerines, medical superintendent of Colleranebri Hospital in Australia, called the swine flu immunization program "a plan for mass murder . .. If a person is susceptible, the vaccine may act as an immunological insult predisposing that person to things like pneumonia or anemia ... If an individual is incubating another flu virus it can cause an immediate and severe attack of that disease.. . We don’t know what the long term effects of this drug (swine flu vaccine) will be. It may predispose a person to cancer or other diseases . . ." (from an exclusive interview with the Glendale News Press (9/24/76) and reprinted in A report to the Consumer, by Honorof). "I have seen cancers caused by vaccinations, on the arms of people, exactly where the vaccine was injected. I have also seen paralysis and other tragedies caused by vaccinations"  (McBean, 1976).

      "The risks of life and health from the high incidence of fever and other side-effects of the swine flu vaccine are substantial. Public health experts estimate that approximately 15% of those inoculated will suffer disabling illness"  (NATIONAL HEALTH FEDERATION , McBean, 1976).

        * "Actually, swine flu is not contagious at all. Like other diseases, it is a cleansing effort of the body to force out the accumulated poisons that have been         .          injected or eaten, breathed or taken in in some other way. Coughing, sneezing, sweating (fever), vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, eruptions, etc. are the                 .          manifestations of the unloading program and should not be interfered with by suppressive drugs or other medical meddling"  (McBean, 1976)

          * "And now, because, public health officials claim, supplies of influenza vaccine are in short supply this season, the FDA has approved for sale in this country .        20 million doses of flu vaccine that may be contaminated with the prion protein crystal that causes mad cow disease" (December 2000, Idaho Observer).

 "They should have found out by this time that they can’t fight poison with poison, as their poison drugs and medicines only make matters worse in the long run. Most diseases are caused by poisons either generated within the body or imposed upon the body from without such as contaminated, devitalized foods, tobacco, alcohol, coffee, vaccines, fluoride-poisoned water, all drugs, insecticides, radiation, etc. Because vaccines are all poison they do damage in 100% of the cases. The damage ranges all the way from sudden death to chronic diseases in later years" (McBean).

"Parents need to understand that the system providing the vaccines injected into their children's veins is corrupt and scientifically flawed," Belkin told UPI. "Parents should do their own homework and investigate this question: What is the risk of getting a severe neurological vaccine adverse reaction versus the risk of getting neurological complications from the disease?" (Mark Benjamin, 2003).

Are there safe natural alternatives?
"The logical common sense approach to prevention of disease would be not to try to identify and destroy the bacteria, but to increase the health and resistance level…to the point where bacteria would have no chance of survival … Dr Bernard Rimland stated in Science News that "It is more constructive to consider disease as a set-back for the body's usually formidable defenses than as a victory for the invading microbes.  Medicine has generally taken the opposite view, and it has proven to be a faulty strategy... The basic philosophy of biological medicine is that 'the healthy body never becomes sick-only the already sick body.'  With proper nutrition, pure natural food and water…exercise, fresh air, rest, relaxation, and a positive health-oriented outlook on life, we can build an optimum level of health and such a strong resistance to disease that we can enjoy superb health and resist diseases and infections.
