Supporters of vaccination would like to take credit for the control of infectious diseases, but the simple truth is that vaccination has had precious little, if anything, to do with controlling disease epidemics. Yet these seemingly rock-solid assumptions are directly contradicted by government statistics, medical studies, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports, and reputable research scientists from around the world.

Epidemics of infectious diseases had undergone a dramatic decline long before any mass immunization programs took place. Many childhood diseases had all but disappeared before a vaccine was even developed for them. According to Metropolitan Life Insurance company policies, in 1911 the four leading causes of death covered by the company in those aged 1 to 14 were diphtheria, measles, scarlet fever and whooping cough. The standardized death rate for these was 145 per 100,000 in 1911, but dropped to 7 per 100,000 by 1945 — a decline of over 95%, before mass immunization began in the United States. Similarly, in England and Wales between 1850 and 1940, deaths from these four diseases declined by 90%. The first vaccine available for diphtheria wasn’t until the early 1940’s, whooping cough in the early 50’s and measles in the late 60’s. No vaccine was provided for scarlet fever, yet it somehow managed to disappear on its own. In fact, many plagues disappeared without the benefit of vaccines — cholera, bubonic plague, yellow fever, for example — all are virtually unheard of today, and without the assistance of mass immunization.

Strangely enough, plagues of disease also disappeared simultaneously in countries, which rejected vaccination as well as those, which implemented it. European countries that refused immunization for smallpox and polio saw their epidemics end as well as those countries that mandated it. In fact smallpox and polio vaccines, both the proverbial golden children of vaccine supporters (i.e. what kind of horrible crippled state would we all be in without them?), actually increased the incidence of those diseases.

  1. The ultimate test of both the safety and efficiency of vaccinations would be:
    Prolonged use over a period of time.
  2. Vigilant reporting of side effects and deaths.

But doctors are not routinely required to report either deaths or side effects following vaccine use. The US taskforce for safer childhood vaccines said, “safety is only relative and cannot be absolutely guaranteed”.

Background to the development of vaccines.

A few decades ago, medical researchers promised to control infections. Empirical thinking led to the notion that because adults had survived childhood infections without catching those diseases again, they must have had some sort of immunity that kept them resistant. Makes sense. The next logical step was to imitate nature by attenuating (weakening) the germs and viruses, then giving them to susceptible populations orally or by shot, thereby allowing the inoculees to develop a mild form of disease and – by extension – permanent immunity. Sounds too good to be true. At the heart of the logic behind vaccination is the theory of herd immunity – that is, if enough people get vaccinated against a certain disease, it will eventually disappear.

The premise of vaccination rests on the assumption that injecting an individual with weakened live or killed virus will trick his body into developing antibodies to the disease, as it does when it contracts an illness naturally. Vaccines short-circuit the body’s first line defenses. But medicine doesn’t really know whether vaccines work for any length of time. All that the usual scientific studies can demonstrate is that vaccines create antibodies in the blood. Even though vaccines may raise antibodies, this may have nothing to do with protecting an individual from contracting the disease over the short or long term. Large numbers of people who have had illnesses such as diphtheria never produce antibodies to the disease. In one report, for instance, measles antibodies were found in the blood of only one of seven vaccinated children who’d gone on to develop measles – they hadn’t developed antibodies from either the vaccination or the disease itself (J Paediatrics

Airborne viruses were not meant to be injected directly into the bloodstream. They normally enter through the nasal passages where the body’s defence system initiates a process of filtration, e.g. skin, nose, sneezing reflexes, tears, fever, intestinal flora, etc… However the unnatural introduction of foreign matter (vaccines) disrupts the internal equilibrium. Furthermore, antibodies that do respond to the uncharacteristic invasion become committed to that challenge and cannot respond elsewhere. But when the normal port of entry is bypassed and viruses are injected directly into muscle tissue, they are driven deep into the body and given immediate access to all internal organs, including the brain, where they can do unrestricted damage. Further, attenuated and “killed” viruses will not provoke the body’s major inflammatory response nor its non-specific immune defences. Therefore this form of virus, found in vaccines, remains in the body and causes continuous antigenic stimulation of the immune system which weakens immune defences and can lead to cancer, leukemia and autoimmune disease.

Research indicates that the immature immune system of a newborn is stimulated, strengthened, and matured by responding to natural challenges. Viruses and the human body have co-existed for millennia, and over that period of time attained a state of equilibrium (as is nature’s way until man interferes). The relationship, if not symbiotic, may in some ways be mutually beneficial. Obviously viruses are reliant on the human body, but conversely, research is beginning to indicate that the human body also depends on certain viruses for maturation of its immune system. It has been shown that after vaccination there is a significant if temporary drop in the immune system T-lymphocytes. This is a direct blow to our immune system.

Vaccination and the subsequent lack of contagious infectious disease in early childhood may foster the development of asthma and other autoimmune disorders later in life. A study in New Zealand reports that of 1,265 children born in 1977, 23 received no childhood vaccinations and none suffered childhood asthma. Among the 1,242 who got polio and DPT shots, 23% later had episodes of asthma, 23% had asthma consultations and 30% had consultations for other allergic illness.

How Vaccines Are Made?

Vaccine production is a disgusting procedure. To begin, one must first acquire the disease germ – a toxic bacterium or a live virus. To make a “live” vaccine, the live virus must be attenuated, or weakened for human use. This is accomplished by serial passage – passing the virus through animal tissue several times to reduce its potency. For example, measles virus is passed through chick embryos, polio virus through monkey kidneys, and the rubella virus through human diploid cells – the dissected organs of an aborted fetus! “Killed” vaccines are “inactivated” through heat, radiation, or chemicals. But obtaining materials from these sources is expensive and in terms of enormous numbers of vaccines made, monkeys and so on would soon be extinct. So lab technicians have devised a way of continuous cloning to repeat these cells endlessly. One could say they are therefore cancerous cells. But these cloned cells are thought to be safe until about the 38th usage, when they are supposed to be destroyed, as they then become potentially carcinogenic. We have no guarantee that they are always destroyed at the 38th stage or that it is at the 32nd stage they become cancerous and not the 38th stage. In addition growth factor must be used. Whooping cough uses the mucus of infected children. Typhoid the excrement of victims. Rubella is grown on aborted fetuses. The old Hep B vaccine was derived from human blood, specifically the blood of homosexual men who have had hepatitis (this vaccine was replaced by a genetically engineered version which is grown on yeast cells, however the older version was never withdrawn until they used all of it up).

The weakened germ must then be strengthened with adjuvants (antibody boosters) and stabilizers. This is done by adding drugs, antibiotics, and toxic disinfectants to the concoction: neomycin, streptomycin, sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum hydrochloride, sorbitol, hydrolized gelatin, formaldehyde, and thimerosal (a mercury derivative). Aluminum, formaldehyde, and mercury are extremely toxic substances with a long history of documented hazardous effects. Studies confirm again and again that microscopic doses of these substances can lead to cancer, neurological damage, and death. Yet, each of them may be found in childhood vaccines.

In addition to the deliberately planned additives, unanticipated matter may contaminate the shots. For example, during serial passage of the virus through animal cells, animal RNA and DNA – foreign genetic material – is transferred from one host to another. Because this biological matter is injected directly into the body, researchers say it can change our genetic makeup. What happens next, once this foul concoction – live viruses, bacteria, toxic substances, and diseased animal matter – is created? This witch’s brew is forced into the healthy child.

Vaccine complications.

It took 85 years for humanity to link the observed side effects, including death, to the smallpox vaccine. The general public is essentially unaware of the true number of people who have been permanently damaged or killed by vaccines. In fact, most parents would be surprised to learn that the government has a computer database filled with several thousand names of disabled and dead babies, children who were healthy and alive just prior to receiving the vaccines.

If we want to know infant deaths in relation to vaccinations we have to look at overall – countrywide statistics. For example…

  1. When Japan stopped injecting infants with DPT and moved up the age of vaccination to two years cot deaths (SIDS) virtually disappeared in Japan. There was also a decline in spinal meningitis. Japan then went on to have the lowest infant mortality in the world.
  2. Sweden dropped Pertussis vaccines in 1979 and the infant mortality rate dropped.
  3. Italy does not use the DPT vaccine.
  4. Similarly when the Australian government made DPT vaccines a voluntary choice, the incidence of SIDS dropped by 50%. (The same in the U.K)
  5. On the contrary in the US there are nearly 10,000 baby deaths every year from SIDS where vaccines are given.
  6. New Zealand has the highest rate of SIDS in the world, 2 per 1000 live births. DPH3 is given at 6/5 and 12 weeks after birth – deaths cluster around 8-16/52 mark.

DPT Vaccine.

A child has as much chance of contracting diphtheria as he does have of being bitten by a cobra. Yet millions of children are immunized against it with repeated injections at 2, 4, 6 and 18 months.

In 1974 Dr Robert Risenger showed that one of the reasons breastfed babies fared better is that there is far less Ecoli in their gut and that it is this bacteria in their gut, in combination with DPT vaccines which causes endotoxic shock, heart and breathing difficulties. He has been ignored.
In 1994 the US Institute of Medicine, looking at up to 10,000 cases of SIDS per year in the US, admitted that the evidence is consistent for a causal relation between DPT vaccine and acute encephalopathy, encephalitis or encephalomyelitis. This was reported in JAMA. In fact it has also been demonstrated in lab animals.

  • The US department of health and human services early in 1997 reported an estimated 60,000 children receiving the DPT vaccine experiencing convulsions, shock etc.
  • In 1999 a case before the high court in London showed – 2081 neurological problems in 80% vaccinated against whooping cough.
  • 90 cases of autism due to side effects of vaccines.

In 1994 JAMA showed that British children receiving Pertussis vaccine were six times more likely to develop asthma then those who did not receive the vaccine. In fact the incidence of asthma/allergies is increasing. New Zealand a highly vaccinated country, according to the Asthma foundation over 1/6 of the country suffers either from asthma or a similar respiratory condition.

Measles vaccine.

A study in the Lancet 1995 showed people who received the measles vaccines were three times more likely to develop Crohns disease (IBD) and twice more likely to develop ulcerative colitis then those who don’t receive the vaccines. Autism was another aftermath noted.

In 1994 the US CDC reported that in an area of 100% immunizations there had been a measles outbreak. Its conclusion, “the apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.” What a statement to inspire confidence in either immunization or the CDC.

According to information published in The Lancet in 1996, certain findings indicate that measles infection prevents allergic sensitization. After comparing two groups of young adults in West Africa, one which had recovered from a natural measles epidemic while the other had not contracted measles and were later vaccinated, researchers found that the vaccinated group had twice the rate of allergic conditions than the group who had recovered from measles. In addition, according to WHO statistics, those who are inoculated against measles have a 15 times greater chance of contracting the disease than those who are unvaccinated. However, due to vaccination, the infection may be atypical measles which is an especially vicious form that resists treatment, or it may be the so-called “mild measles” with under-developed rash –the type that does not provoke a full inflammatory response and so remains latent in the body and may result in chronic or degenerative disease, including cancer.

Polio vaccine.

Polio has increased 700 % in states, which have compulsory vaccination. The much quoted writer on medical problems, Morris Beale, who for years edited his informative publication, Capsule News Digest, from Capitol Hill, offered a standing reward during the years from 1954 to 1960 of $30,000, which he would pay to anyone who could prove that the polio vaccine was not a killer and a fraud. There were no takers.

Medical historians have finally come to the reluctant conclusion that the great flu “epidemic” of 1918 was solely attributed to the widespread use of vaccines.

In 1973 researchers proved that the incidence of brain tumors was 13 times higher among children born of mothers who had been vaccinated against polio during their pregnancy.


Dr Jonas Salk said that 2/3 of polio cases during this decade have been caused by the vaccine itself.

1921 42.3 12

Many childhood diseases had tapered off before the vaccines for them had been incorporated into paediatric care. The polio epidemic of the late 1940s, for example, was waning when the drive for universal vaccinations began in the 1950s. Nearly all doctors saw cases of whooping cough in children who had been fully vaccinated. The disease was called “parapertussis” to make us feel better.

Nutrition and Vaccines.

Dr Archie Kalokennos of Australia noted that often vaccinations carried out in the Aboriginal community, up to 50% of the children went into endotoxic shock and died. He was able to rescue a few – near deaths by giving large doses of Vitamin C (a detoxifier) IM or IV.

He realized that these poor infants were so malnourished that they could not cope with the impact of the vaccination. So before the vaccinations he built them up with Vitamins especially vitamin C and most survived the vaccines. Despite this the medical world refuse to take heed.

Dr Kalokennos also noted a high infant mortality rate following vaccination in whites. Infants who were apparently well or who had a trivial illness became suddenly shocked and died. He was able to demonstrate to colleagues the dramatic reversal of the shock or unconscious state with Vitamin C. His colleagues still remain hostile. There are numerous other studies in medical journals, which confirm his conclusions.

Immune Disorders & Vaccines.

Dr Jaffe a prominent US science researcher/physician has declared the overall incidence of autoimmune disease has increased more then ten fold in the past two generations.

Most modern illnesses (AIDS, asthma, cervical cancer etc) are related to immune system problems. Something is causing the immune system to turn on its own body. There is plenty of evidence that the infectious diseases, which use to decimate populations in Europe 100 years ago, were already in decline up to 90% long before vaccinations were used.

In all the studies done of vaccination, epidemiologists have never investigated whether there is an upper limit to the number of jabs babies can tolerate, after which all sorts of subtle damage – asthma, learning disabilities, hyperactivity or chronic earache, for instance – come into play. In fact, nobody has done any long-term safety studies at all.

Nevertheless, the American government, through its National Academy of Sciences, which surveyed all the scientific literature on each vaccine, has admitted that there is no such thing as a safe vaccine. The risks range from minor illnesses to permanent brain damage and death. People who work with autistic children and or those with behavioral or learning problems also know that there is nearly always a vaccination at the root of the problem.

In December 1988, an article was published in the New York Times by Dr. John Walker-Smith of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London. This expert on intestinal diseases had found a sharp increase of Crohn’s disease in children of East Indian origin who had grown up in Great Britain. In India the disease is “very, very rare”. Dr. Walker-Smith concludes that the lack of many childhood infections may allow children in the West to grow up without the vigorous development of their immune system such infection would normally promote.

Diabetes is another autoimmune disorder that has increased substantially in the last three decades, coinciding with the significant increase in childhood immunizations. The pertussis vaccine in particular is known to cause diabetes in mice, and medical literature as early as 1949 reported that some children injected with the pertussis vaccine had reduced blood glucose levels. Dr. J. Barthelow Classen, former researcher at the U.S. National Institutes of Health, states that juvenile diabetes increased 60% following a massive Hep B vaccination campaign for babies six weeks or older in New Zealand from 1988 to 1991. Also, Finland’s incidence of diabetes increased 147% in children under five after three new vaccines were introduced in the 1970s and diabetes increased 40% in children aged five to nine after the addition of the MMR and Hib vaccines in the 1980s.

More recently, in September 00, Dr. Classen presented data at the International Public Conference on Vaccination proving vaccines are the largest cause of insulin dependent diabetes in children. His data indicated that vaccines cause approximately 80% of cases in children who have received multiple vaccines starting at two months of age. Amazingly, a week later the CDC also presented data at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy that supported Dr. Classen’s findings. Diabetics have been advised to seek counsel before their right to compensation expires.

Even those considered among the country’s elite are not exempt from vaccine injury. Despite military and FDA assurances that the anthrax vaccine is safe (believe it or not, the FDA reports that it “has fewer side effects than some childhood immunizations”), a war is raging over the hazardous effects it may have on a recipients health, and the rights of military personnel to refuse it on that basis. It seems the producer of the vaccine, BioPort corp., is also having its share of difficulties. After separate recommendations by the House subcommittee and Congress earlier this year to suspend the anthrax vaccination program (which the Pentagon ignored), the vaccine was recalled by its maker last month due to ‘labeling problems’. Amidst audits, missing documents, and lack of FDA approval for renovated labs, BioPort has just been hit with another controversy. Their anthrax vaccine has been implicated in the death of one of their employees. Richard Dunn had been required to take the anthrax vaccine because his work involved the monitoring of test animals.

His death in July was due to “an inflammatory response to the vaccine throughout his body” according to Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Robert Joyce. BioPort officials are “shocked and puzzled” by the coroner’s findings. A month after his last dose, Dunn had been complaining of fatigue and swelling. He was sent to the company’s doctors who examined him three times and determined there was no connection to the vaccine.

The theory behind vaccination contains numerous flaws.

  • It assumes that micro-organisms, rather than the overall health of the host, are primarily responsible for the disease.
  • It ignores the many instances where fully vaccinated individuals have nevertheless contracted the disease.
  • It doesn’t take into account large numbers of people who had illnesses such as diphtheria but whose bodies did not produce measurable antibodies.
  • It doesn’t ask what happens to live viruses over time.
  • Numerous studies suggest that vaccines consume large portions of the immune system, eventually causing autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
  • It doesn’t take into account that vaccines may only work in a hit-and-miss fashion, conferring temporary immunity – the length of which no one understands.

The Drug Information Leaflet.

Parents should demand the right to read the information leaflet from the manufacturer, which comes with the vaccines. Hilary Butler, Researcher for the NZ Immunization Awareness Society, insists that at the very least parents should demand the right to read the information from the manufacturer, which comes with the vaccines, before they decide if they will accept the risks. As with the mercury amalgam tags, this is a ‘truth-telling statement’, which is required by law, also there to protect the vaccine manufacturer from any possible law suits. (Well we did warn you.) The problem is that parents are not given these to read, and when they ask, are often shamed for doing so with such phrases as ‘We wouldn’t do anything that was unsafe.’ But here are the ‘truth-telling’ adverse reactions listed on a 1986 Connaught Laboratories vaccination product insert:

Adverse reactions which may be local and include pain, erythema, heat, edema, and induration… are common. Some data suggest that febrile reactions are more likely to occur in those who have experienced such responses after prior doses… Sterile abscesses at the site of injection have been reported… Mild systemic reactions, such as fever, drowsiness, fretfulness, and anorexia occur quite frequently. Rash, allergic reactions, and respiratory difficulties, including apnoea (breath holding), have been observed. Moderate to severe systemic events, such as fever of 40.5C (10F) or higher, persistent, inconsolable crying lasting three hours or more, unusual high-pitched screaming, collapse, or convulsions occur relatively infrequently. More severe neurologic complications, such as prolonged convulsions or an encephalopathy, occasionally fatal, have been reported… Rarely, an anaphylactic reaction (i.e. hives, swelling of the mouth, difficulty breathing, hypotension or shock) has been reported… Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) has occurred in infants following administration of DPT… Onset of infantile spasms has occurred in infants who have recently received DPT or DT.

Some people may argue with the medical studies and the government statistics quoted, but how do you argue with a vaccine manufacturer who states in writing that use of their product has been followed by death, neurological complications, encephalopathy, fits, respiratory difficulties, etc…

There are medical doctors who read product insert and then give reassurance that vaccines do not pose a significant harm to children. Manufacturers have to tell the truth in order to protect their millions in profit against possible lawsuits. But why is this truth so carefully hidden from us?

At the American Academy of Pediatricians Forum there was a resolution urging that the AAP make available in clear, concise language, information which a reasonable parent would want to know about the benefits and risks of routine immunizations, the risks of vaccine preventable diseases and the management of common adverse reactions to immunization. Apparently the doctors assembled did not believe that reasonable parents were entitled to this kind of information therefore they rejected the resolution.

How Government, Doctors and Drug Co. are Collaborating.

Conventional medicine would have us believe that its faith in mass vaccination as a way of eradicating disease is based on hard scientific evidence. It isn’t. Why is it then, that most doctors you meet believe the myths about vaccination? The reason is that doctors themselves are educated about vaccination by drug companies and governments, both of who have enormous vested interests in a programme that requires multiple drug purchases for virtually every infant in the country.

  • The worldwide market for human vaccine use was projected to exceed $7 billion by the year 2001. Profits are now the number one priority, the underlying purpose cloaked in the guise of protecting public health.
  • In Britain, vaccinating your child is often a requirement for staying on your GP’s list, say, he gets paid a bonus of about 2,400 pounds if 90% of them are vaccinated. But if only 70% are vaccinated, that bonus shrinks to about 800 pounds.
  • Doctors and scientists at the US NIH during the 1950’s were aware that the new Salk vaccine was both ineffective and dangerous. But there had been a large investment on the part of the American National Polio foundation and the pharmaceutical companies, 180 went ahead and used it.
  • Also the New Zealand government of that time knew the reason they were getting the polio vaccine cheaply. It was known to be contaminated with at least one monkey virus (Simian V 40) – (however New Zealand doctors and parents were told it was harmless). This crime was exposed by a newspaper called Truth.
  • The journal science commented in 1972 “that millions of people have been injected with a monkey virus… which was found to be contaminating polio vaccines. The virus causes cancers in hamsters, no one knows what it may do in humans! NZ a country with highest rates of some cancers in the world.
  • The Canadian government hastily withdrew 2 versions of the Urabe Mumps virus vaccine. Smith Kline and Beecham continued producing it and handed it out in some parts of the world, they felt it was better to hand out a vaccine known to pose dangers than to expose children to an illness that is mostly benign.
  • Authorities still continue vaccinating our children from the cradle to the classroom, but they extend the practice to adults. 45% of Unicef Funds goes to vaccinating people in the third world, compared to only 17% for clean water and sanitation. Youngsters in the third world need clean drinking water and food in their stomachs, not aggressive agents which make them die like flies. Massive vaccinations in African countries have decimated these populations as a result of their immediate effects. Yet we continue to vaccinate regardless.
  • In the US since 1998, $724 million has been awarded to the families of children injured or killed by vaccines. We should ask why American insurance companies generally refuse to cover problems ensuing from immunizations. But no matter what outcome, as with almost all medical interventions those who manufacture vaccines are not called to account when disaster occurs.

How Doctors Manipulate Data.

The data on polio has been greatly manipulated by changing the definition of polio. Before 1954 patients had to have paralytic symptoms for only 24 hours to be diagnosed as having polio. From 1954 onwards after widespread vaccine use, the patient had to have symptoms for at least 60 days to qualify as a polio victim. Data manipulation is also manipulated by changing the name of the disease e.g. polio may have disappeared, but viral or aseptic meningitis has sky rocketed.

In a California Report of communicable disease, polio showed a zero count, while an accompanying asterix explained “all such cases now reported as meningitis”.


In conclusion, the whole process of vaccinations should be reviewed immediately. The National Academy of Science in the US reviewed all medical literature and concluded that all 9 vaccines had the potential to do serious harm. Although these conclusions were included in the fact sheets given to parents they were eventually edited on the grounds that they confuse parents.

But if immunization has had little to do with controlling plagues of disease, then what did alleviate them? The answer is simple, and still the best solution — improvements in hygiene and nutrition. The poverty, filth and squalor of urban life up to the early 1800’s gave way to sanitation reforms, fresh water supplies and plumbing (no more raw sewage running in the streets…), less crowding/proper isolation, central heating etc., all of which radically changed public health standards. Add to this an increasing awareness of nutrition, better food preservation and the ability to import fresh fruits and vegetables in the winter months (no more lard pies day in and day out…) and you can begin to see how people were better able to fend off disease. These two factors are what truly control contagious/infectious disease.

Many people are questioning whether we should make ourselves sick in order to avoid sickness. The key to resisting diseases is to strengthen the immune system.

There will always be a certain number of cases of TB, malaria, polio and we must understand that our goal is not eradication of these germs via vaccines/antibiotics but a natural ecological balance in order to strengthen our immune system.

Dr Robert Mendelsohn said: ‘ there has never been a single vaccine in this country that has ever been submitted to a controlled scientific study. They never took a group of 100 people who were candidates for vaccines, gave 50 of them vaccines and left the other 50 alone to measure the outcome. And since that has never been done, that means if you want to be kind, you will call vaccines an unproven remedy. If you want to be accurate, you will call people who give vaccines quacks.’

She had stopped speaking for the proceeding two weeks. Case 2: This boy’s father suffered flu like illness at the same time that the boy was unwell after immunization. His mother noticed his poor hearing but attributed it to inattention and did not seek medical advice. He also has amblyopia and learning difficulties.

  11. Abstract- Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (primary fibrositis syndrome, major affective disorder, etc.) have elevated IgG serum antibodies to multiple common viruses. Only IgGrubella antibodies are positively correlated with the intensity of symptoms and have a height that is clearly significant compared to healthy controls. The lymphotrophic properties of the rubella virus could account for the multiple elevated antibodies. Adult women are over-represented in the population of patients with chronic fatigue, and are especially susceptible to developing such symptoms following exposure to attenuated rubella new more potent strain of live rubella vaccine strain RA27/3 (my.02 this vaccine is the one using the aborted fetal tissue cells) was introduced in 1979. Within three years, reports of patients with chronic fatigue began surfacing in the literature. Considering all this, the possible role of rubella immunizations in the etiology of chronic fatigue syndrome deserves further study.

Gamma Globulin Prophylaxis; Inactivated Rubella Virus; Production and Biologics Control of Live Attenuated Rubella Virus Vaccines (this is contains info on the use of human aborted fetal tissue cells in rubella vaccine) Amer J Dis Child 1969 vol 118 [10 pgs] I am just going to point out a few things in this article. The first part deals with gamma globulin. The part of interest is the end where there is a discussion between doctors and researchers, one being the famous Dr. Sabin. They begin discussing the possible dangers of the aborted fetal tissue cells (they also discuss animal use and its dangers) with possible genetic material passed over into the vaccine. Also human leukemia viruses. They start discussing the aborted fetus used in the WI-38 cell (this is the fetus tissue cells they use to grown the disease on it is lung cells [diploid]).

I am going to type part of this discussion. Dr. K McCarthy: It seems to me that there are two things that we worry about in regards to WI-38 cell substrate. First of all, presence of extraneous viral agents; secondly, the possibility of there being human genetic material passed over into the vaccine. I wonder if there is any information about the reasons for aborting that particular embryo that gave rise to WI-38; and if it was from a family, whether we have any information about siblings from the family and whether they are normal?

Dr. S Plotkin, Philidelphia: I should like to answer Dr. McCarthy’s question. This fetus was chosen by Dr. Sven Gard, specifically for this purpose. Both parents are known, and unfortunately for the story, they are married to each other, still alive and well, and living in Stockholm, presumably. The abortion was done because they felt they had too many children. There were no familial diseases in the history of either parent, and no history of cancer specifically in the families; I believe this answers Dr. McCarthy’s question.

Dr Sabin goes on to say that this issue (objections to their use) is based on emotion rather than reason. He then goes on talk about how in theory something may show up later that we do not have the technology now to discover (my .02 we all know they did not discover SV40 right away). Also he talks about a number of researchers and the national Cancer Institute are developing a program to determine whether the leukemia sarcoma complex that has been now been so well characterized in avian species and in mice may also have its counter-part in human beings.
