In our last segment, we looked at the claims of the National Network for Immunization Information’s (NNII) claims for vaccine effectiveness. We continue where we left off.
This is one disease for which vaccination nearly always gets the credit for its removal. In 1952, according to the NNII, 21,000 people had polio in the U.S. In 2002, polio was non-existent here. What is missing here is the fact that when the vaccine was introduced in 1947, it actually caused poliorather than “cured” it and when the new version in 1952 was released, polio was already on its way out. Mostly thanks to changes in diagnosis and treatment.5
Polio was the first major public health“crisis” in America and major propaganda campaigns were waged to alert people to its danger. This despite the fact that such a tiny percentage of the population was susceptible to or infected with the disease.
This is a timely one due to the current outbreak on the west coast. The NNII says that in the early 1940s, there were 8,000deaths due to pertussis and by 2002, there were no deaths from the disease. Again, as with the measles, this is a blatant manipulation of statistics. It’s what they’re not showing you that counts. Pertussis (whooping cough) from 1861-1955 (the year the vaccine was introduced) had already decreased by 99.6% in Europe and from 1900 to 1949 by 96% in the U.S.4, 5 Then the vaccine came along to take the credit.
Throwing out a best guess, the NNII claims that in the 1920s there were 100,000 to 200,000 cases of diphtheria in the U.S. annually. 13,000 died from the disease, they say. In 2002, there was only one case of diphtheria in the U.S. Again, this is a disease that was well on the decline before the magic potion (err.. vaccine) appeared. From 1900-1949, diphtheria death rates had dropped by 99%.4 Then, as usual, a vaccine appeared to take the credit for what was already done.
Manipulation, Lies, and Half-Truths
Most of the information given on the NNII’s page for parents to convince us that vaccinationsaves lives and is the only thing keeping an epidemic of dead bodies littering the streets is bogus. The numbers and data presented are manipulated to make them appear in favor ofvaccines while still holding an air of legitimacy.
If diseases do make a resurgence and begin to come to us in waves of epidemics, it won’t be because we were not properly vaccinated, as the NNII suggests. No, it will be because we are, as a population, undernourished, filled with toxins and poisons, and have been listening to the lies and misleading half-truths of the NNII, the CDC, and others who tell us that poison is OK while healthful choices are psychotic.
It’s time for us to take over our own lives and think for ourselves. We know the truth. The sooner we stand up for ourselves and take charge of our own destinies, the sooner we can tell these corporate shills to take their poisons and choke on them.
We’ll never become sustainable, we’ll never begin to repair the environment, and we’ll never begin to restore our own health until we finally shuck the chains of the Industrial-Pharma-Agra-Governmental complex that enslaves us.
