Smallpox eradication - proof of effect ?
Did vaccinations really end smallpox?
Wheeled out at every available opportunity by the “vaccinate everyone against everything” camp is the “indisputable” success of the national vaccination programs in eradicating smallpox from the Western World. Indisputable, that is, unless you look at what actually happened rather than the media and pharma spin, a process that conclusively proves the opposite!
The “credit” for the development of the smallpox “vaccine” belongs to one Edward Jenner, a barber, chiropodist and back-room manufacturer of “vaccines” from cow-pus and hair. 1 Masquerading as a doctor, although he never passed any medical exams 2, Jenner was considered a bit of a nut by his contemporaries, and his “success” in treating smallpox often resulted in the death of his patients within months to tuberculosis, not unlike the modern-day cancer physician’s concept of “cured, but dead” as a result of their treatment. In fact, Dr A Wilder, Professor of Pathology and former editor of the New York Medical Times commented, in reference to Jenner’s experiments “Consumption (tuberculosis) follows in the wake of vaccination as surely as effect follows cause”. 3
It took Jenner many “formulations” and several years before he managed in 1807 to convince a sceptical Royal College of Physicians to reluctantly accept his rationale and rather dodgy method of preventing the disease, a concept, which, even at that stage, he was totally unable to back up with any factual data.
Dr William Hay had this to say to the Medical Freedom Society about Jenner’s dubious concept, which Jenner himself admitted showed “no protective virtue” in its early incarnations. 4
“It is nonsense to think that you can inject pus – and it is usually from the pustule end of the dead smallpox victim – it is unthinkable that you can inject that into a little child and in any way improve its health. The body has its own methods of defence. These depend upon the vitality of the body at the time. If it is vital enough, it will resist all infections; if it isn’t vital enough, it won’t. And you can’t change the vitality of the body for the better by introducing poison of any kind into it.”
If only such ethics and common sense existed in modern medicine. Alas, it seems to be extinct.
Of course, Hay was referring to the usual methods of defence employed by the body to filter out potentially dangerous pathogens and prevent them from entering the body, such as the skin, the mouth, nose and other parts of the respiratory and alimentary systems. These all include specific structures and processes that make it almost impossible for pathogenic bacteria and viruses to enter the body and cause disease unless the body in question has a seriously compromised immune system – such as one that has just been filled with poisons injected directly into the blood or tissues, as in the case of “vaccinations”. One example of this is the intense, virtually unstoppable urge to vomit if one has consumed food that is “off”.
“Vaccination” neatly avoids all of these protective mechanisms by injecting the bug in question – along with a raft of poisonous chemicals that are themselves enough to give any immune system a serious battering – directly into the blood of the recipient, where bacteria are never meant to reach! In fact, so serious is bacteremia, as it is known when it occurs independently, that it frequently results in death. Furthermore, so paranoid is the body about keeping the blood pure that, even if swallowed and not vomited out, bacteria and toxins in food are neutralized by the stomach and liver, to be eliminated by the liver and kidneys.
During the Gloucester smallpox epidemic of 1896, the outspoken vaccine critic Dr Walter Hawden made the following comments to the residents of Gloucester on the “horse grease” (derived from the seborrheal lesions on the legs and feet of horses kept in poor stable conditions) that Jenner had added to his latest “formulation”:
“I had better, at the outset, sate to you distinctly the position I occupy on the subject. I stand here not only as a medical man, but as a father and a citizen. As a medical man I look upon vaccination as an insult to common sense, as superstitious in its origin, unscientific in theory and practice, and useless and dangerous in its character; while as a father and a citizen I view the compulsory Vaccination Acts as demoralising in their tendencies, degrading in their character, cruel and unjust in their enactments, and an unwarrantable interference with parental responsibility and liberty, such as ought not to be tolerated in a country like England, which has boasted of her civil and religious freedom for generations past.
It seems that a man had been seeing to the grease upon a horse’s heels and had gone to milk the cows without washing his hands. The result was that it produced that peculiar kind of disease known by the name of horse-grease cowpox. “This”, said Jenner, “is the life-preserving fluid!” and he went home to write about the wonderful virtues of horse-grease cowpox. However, it was necessary to perform an experiment, and he inoculated a boy named John Baker with horse-grease, direct from the horse’s heels. He intended later to inoculate him with smallpox in order to see whether it would take, but the poor boy died in the workhouse directly afterwards from a contagious fever contracted from the inoculation” 5
Here, we can see the potential for “vaccinations” to produce immediate, and fatal results, a fact which has changed little in the intervening years. One common ingredient of virtually all vaccines – formaldehyde – which is normally used to preserve dead tissue, is known, for example to cause, amongst other things, cancer, including leukaemia and cancer of the brain, colon and lymphatic tissues. 6 Is this really what we want to be injecting into ourselves? Into our children?
Eventually, Jenner found the winning formulation that was to guarantee his success, if not the success of his vaccine! Both the Royal College of Physicians and the Parliament were convinced to accept routine vaccination on the basis of nothing more than Jenner’s assertions and the promise of “large revenues”. In this, at least, he proved to be correct and vaccines remain today a tidy little earner, with the much-touted Tamiflu now earning a healthy $100 per shot for the questionable “benefit” of reducing the duration of flu (sometimes) by a day or so, balanced by some severely unwelcome side-effects.
In the words of US National Institutes of Health physician, Dr James A Shannon, “The only safe vaccine is the vaccine that is never used” 7
Smallpox eradication – proof of effect?
The proof of any pudding, as they say, is in the eating, and this particular pudding not only takes some digesting, but leaves a distinctly unpleasant taste in the mouth as well as a rather worrisome chemical cocktail in the blood.
But does it actually do any good? The statistics with regard to smallpox are not all they are cracked up to be and most certainly not what you have been led to believe.
The best comparison is a direct one, and in this case we have the benefit of having the opportunity to directly compare the effects in vaccinated and non-vaccinated populations during the worst smallpox epidemics of the late 19th century.
After the instigation of forced vaccination in the early 1850s, over 95% of the population had been vaccinated when the largest ever smallpox epidemic begun in 1870. Over 42,000 people lost their lives to this epidemic, despite (or perhaps, because of?) the high vaccination rate. In towns and cities with lower vaccination rates, the death rate was observed to be much lower. 8 As a direct consequence of this, whole towns refused to get vaccinated.
One such town was Leicester – at that time a bustling metropolis of 200,000 inhabitants. After the appalling failure of the vaccine to protect people during the 1870 outbreak, the population refused the official edict to accept the needle and instead relied on the age-old process of improving sanitization and quarantining those affected. Consequently, in the outbreak of 1892, Leicester suffered only 19 cases of smallpox per 10,000 people, compared to 123 per 10,000 in Warrington, where 99.2% had been vaccinated. 9 The death rate in Warrington was similarly 11 times higher than in Leicester. 10
Overall, the two towns that had refused vaccination – Leicester and Dewsbury – had the lowest death rates in the whole country! 11
Amazingly, these statistics are often used to support the pro-vaccination stance, even though they overwhelmingly show that vaccination makes the situation worse, rather than better. Even the World Health Organization admits that, in many countries where smallpox was eradicated in the 1970s, it was achieved through a policy of surveillance and containment after the failure of vaccination to resolve the problem. 12
A typical example of this was Sierra Leone, where vaccination had failed to have the desired effect. Following the decision to eradicate the disease in 1968 after achieving the highest rates Worldwide, policies of identification and quarantine proved effective, and 15 months later, the last case of smallpox in the country was recorded. 13
The case with other vaccines is much the same, consisting of dubious concepts, even more dubious data, investigational bias and downright lies. This conforms to a much larger and more general concept which people are beginning to wake up to, as discussed in the next chapter.
