HISTORICAL MANIPULATION, SMALLPOX, AND POLIO

Topics on this page:

Historical Manipulation

The claim that vaccination has wiped out deadly scourges has reached legendary status. But are these claims backed by historical records or do they represent the most deceptive and successful public relations coup in the history of the medical industrial complex? And if vaccines-and not better sanitation etc. – saved humanity from disease, then where are today's epidemic of Scarlet Fever victims for which no vaccine was ever administered? *** It is also imperative to understand that the definition + diagnosis of polio was dramatically changed when the polio vaccine was introduced, further manipulating statistics. For an overview of this critically pertinent information see: www.thinktwice.com

"The 'victory over epidemics' was not won by medical science or by doctors – and certainly not by vaccines... The decline has been the result of technical, social and hygienic improvement."

"This history that has been cooked up to convince people that vaccines are safe and effective...The decline of disease was due to improve living conditions: cleaner water, advance sewage systems, nutrition a decrease in poverty. Germs may be everywhere but when you are really healthy, you don't contact disease as easily."

Mark Randall, (pseudonym) former NIH Researcher and Vaccine Developer in interview with investigative reporter, Jon Rappoport
Jayne Donegan

"I went to the Office for National Statistics and got out all the old books when public records began to be kept in 1837 and wrote down the mortality figures for the diseases against which we vaccinate. I was shocked to discover that vaccines hadn't made the great impact that I had been led to believe with graphs starting a few years before the vaccines were introduced. INSTEAD of showing the figures from fifty or a hundred years before when you would see that 95-99% of the reduction from measles, for example, already before vaccines were introduced."

"The charts plotted by the epidemiologist McKeown should humble scientists and lead them to look into the question of health from a holistic point of view. He showed how improvement of environmental conditions by reformers in Britian during the sanitary revolution of the nineteenth century led to effective controls of several major diseases like TB, colera and whooping cough in the absence of conventional biomedical tools."

"We were told repeatedly that Professor Ramous toxoid 'practically wiped out diptheria' in Britain, yet compulsory use at the same time in France showed very different results. In Britain with mass inoculations there was an increase in cases and deaths of several months, but in France with compulsory inoculations, the increases were much greater and lasted for many years."

Smallpox Vaccine: Responsibe for Eradication or Epidemics?

"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 PhD, Australia
John Tilden

"There is no question but that perfect sanitation has almost obliterated this disease (smallpox) and sooner or later will dispose of it entirely. Of course when that time comes, in all probability the credit will be given to vaccination."


John Tilden MD (1851-1940)
William Howard Hay

"I have thought many times of all the insane things that we have advocated in medicine – one of the most insane – to insist on the vaccination of children or anybody else for the prevention of smallpox, when as a matter of fact, we are never able to prove vaccination saved one man from smallpox."

Dr. William Howard Hay (1866-1940), New York Practitioner
Viera Scheibner

"Smallpox was on the way out, indeed epidemics disappeared decades before the World Health Organization decided to conduct the final "eradication" campaign. It is also well-documented that the largest epidemics occurred in the most highly vaccinated populations, while the unvaccinated did not have the same epidemics."

"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 time in which smallpox was practically eradicated in the city of Manila, to the year 1918 (about nine years) in which the epidemic appears – certainly in one of its severest forms – hundreds after hundreds of thousands were yearly vaccinated, with the most unfortunate result that the 1918 epidemic looks, prima facie, as a flagrant failure of the classic immunization towards future Epidemics."

Report of the Public Health Service 1920 (discussing smallpox in Manila)
Walter Hadwen

"Since the passing of the Compulsory Vaccination Act in (Britain) 1853 we have had no less than three distinct epidemics. In 1857-9. We had more than 14,000 deaths from small pox. In the 1863-5 epidemic the deaths increased to 20,000 and in the 1871-2 they totaled up to 44,800."

"How is it that smallpox is five times as likely to be fatal in the vaccinated as in the unvaccinated? How is it that in some of our most highly vaccinated towns, smallpox is rife whilst in some of our most poorly vaccinated towns such as Leicester, it is almost unknown? How is it that something like 80% of the cases admitted into the Metropolitan Board Smallpox Hospital have been vaccinated, whilst only 20% have not been vaccinated."

"I have studied the question of vaccination conscientiously for 45 years...As a preventative of disease, there is not a scrap of evidence in its favour. The injection of virus into the bloodstream does not prevent smallpox, rather, it tends to increase its epidemics, and it makes the disease more deadly.”...Cancer mortality has increased from 9 per 100,000 or fully 900% increase within the past 50 years, and no conceivable thing could have caused this increase but the universal blood poisoning now existing."

Dr. Charles E. Page, Boston Practitioner

"Around the turn of the 20th century, people began reporting paralytic illness AFTER the smallpox vaccination. By the 1920s, infantile paralysis (later renamed polio) began to emerge as an important new disease that often afflicted the limb that had been vaccinated. And later when...vaccines gained widespread use, illness and paralytic episodes following vaccination became common knowledge..."

"One soldier... told me that the army hospitals were filled with cases of infantile paralysis and he wondered why a grown man should have an infant disease.

Polio Stats: Vaccine Miracle of Medical Manipulation?

International Mortality Statistics

"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. Albert Sabin, Developer of the Oral Polio vaccine
random

"Prior to 1954 any physician who reported paralytic poliomyelitis was doing his patient a service by way of subsidizing the cost of hospitalization... two examinations at least twenty-four hours apart was all that was required... In 1955 the criteria were changed ...residual paralysis was determined ten to twenty days after onset of illness and again fifty to seventy days after onset...This change In definition meant that in 1955, we started reporting a new disease... Furthermore, diagnostic procedures have continued to be Re-defined. Cocksackie virus infections and aseptic meningitis have been distinguished from poliomyelitis...Thus simply in the Change of diagnosis criteria, the number of paralytic cases was pre-deterrmined to decrease."

Dr. Bernard Greenberg, Chairman of the Committee on Evaluation & Standards of The American Policy Health Association during 1950s testifying before Congressional Hearings, 1962
Maurice Meadow Bayly

"After vaccination was introduced, cases of aseptic meningitis were reported as a separate disease from polio, but such were counted as polio before the vaccine was introduced. The Ministry of Health admitted that the vaccine status of the individual is a guiding factor in diagnosis...If a person who is vaccinated contracts the disease, the disease is simply recorded under a different name...Those who contracted polio after the first inoculation were placed on the non-inoculated list...It's obvious that this practice of screening statistics, apparently in order to suppress facts unfavourable to immunization, invalidates most of the evidence brought forward by the supporters of immunization."

Hilary Butler

"Go to your library and ask to see the United States Poliio Surveillance Unit's bulletins from 1955 to 1970. They will be 'missing'. Every single medical library in the U.S. that were checked out for me and in New Zealand (and possibly other countries) has them listed as “missing.” There is only one place you can see them, as far as I know and that's at the MMA's library , and they are listed as having top security clearance requirement to see..Why might this be? When he was alive Dr. Ratner had copies of them at this home. He gave me many of the years' data I wanted. They clearly showed from the inception of the Salk vaccine, to its discontinuation, the vaccine had a MINUS efficacy and was actually causing more polio in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated... Any studious person looking at government stats in retrospect, would be able to easily see that the political and media canonization of Salk and his vaccine was a mirage of duplicity upon duplicity."

"In 1957, a spokesman for the North Carolina Health Department made glowing claims for the efficacy of the Salk vaccine, showing how polio steadily decrease from 1953 to 1957. Hi figures were challenged by Dr. Fred Klenner who pointed out that it wasn't until 1955 that a single person in the state received a polio vaccine injection. Even then injections were administered on a limited basis because of the number of polio cases resulting from the vaccine. It wasn't until 1956 that a single person in the state received a polio vaccine Even then injections were administered on a limited basis because of the number of polio cases resulting from the vaccine. It wasn't until 1956 that polio vaccinations assumed inspired proportion. The 61% drop in polio cases in 1954 was credited to the Salk vaccine when it wasn't even in the state. By 1957 polio was on the increase."
