Prevention against diseases and the search for a panacea was an age-old concern for the mankind. Even now, in the twenty first century, man is hunting for a short cut to this end. In the history of Medicine, several such recorded attempts are obtainable; out of which the ‘Inoculations’ put forward by Edward Jenner in 1796 stay behind even after two centuries. By this time, the Medical World went too far away from principles and became too much concerned about commercialism and professionalism. The Germ Theory became an unquestionable dogma without understanding the dynamic processes involved in Health, Disease and Cure.
There were no proper surveillance studies to disprove the claims regarding the efficiency of vaccines till the latter part of twentieth century. Serious reconsideration regarding vaccines emerged when the Homeopathic Practitioners around the world, following Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the Founder of Homeopathy, in their case studies of Chronic Diseases met with very serious bad effects of Vaccinations. They could elicit several short term and long term disease conditions, which were not identified or recognized even by the sufferers or their parents. It might be an accidental coincidence, that Birth of the new Medical System of Homeopathy also took place in the very same year of 1796. The Medical Scientists went on identifying these new disease conditions and called them by various new names like auto-immune diseases, cancers etc., without acknowledging their relationship with the vaccines. Homeopaths, after Dr. Hahnemann, had enough indications to demonstrate that vaccines are causing very grave constitutional changes, even capable enough to bring about mutations in the genetic code, which not only affects the individual but also gets transferred to the next generations, which they call as the Miasm of Sycosis. Ever increasing incidences of autoimmune diseases and cancers in the physical level and antisocial, immoral and destructive activities in the mental level are all pointing to the confirmation of the Homeopathic theories of Chronic Diseases.
An Indian child is ill fated to receive about 20 to 25 different primary or booster doses of vaccines within its first five years of life. All these shots are explained to be for raising the immunity of the child. But, instead of doing so, they are found to produce innumerable number of newer disease conditions not only in children but also when they are grown up. At the same time, the fact that the medical scientists have poorly understood the immune status of an infant is kept away from common man by the medical world only for the sake of professionalism. They have successfully kept the scientific dilemmas and uncertainties away from the average Indian parent and the ruling political establishments. Naturally we will have to look at the marketing gimmicks played by the mighty vaccine companies in promoting the sale of their products with serious suspicion and start acting in the right direction.
It was in the early eighties, that the parents in United States of America found that everything is not going right with the vaccines. They found that the DPT vaccines are producing major health hazards in those vaccinated children. The historical book ‘Vaccination- Social Violence and Criminality, the Medical Assault on the American Brain’ by Harris Coulter, PhD was an eye opener which established the fact that the cases of Autism were nothing but the post-encephalitic syndrome resulting from childhood vaccination against whooping cough. . The powerful words of Vierra Scheibner Ph.D. in her incredible book, ‘Vaccination: The Medical Assault on the Immune System’, (one of the greatest anti-vaccination books written to date): “Vaccination is the epitome of ignorance and the unscientific approach to illness…. Immunizations, including those practiced on babies, not only did not prevent any infectious diseases, they caused more suffering and more deaths than have any other human activity in the entire history of medical intervention. It will be decades before the mopping-up after the disasters caused by childhood vaccination will be completed. All vaccinations should cease forthwith and all victims of their side-effects should be appropriately compensated” gave strength for the parents to raise their voice against the vaccination injuries and set everybody thinking seriously against the health hazards caused by them. When the parents started filing lawsuits against the vaccine companies and health care providers, vaccination rates among children began to fall and many companies that develop and produce vaccines decided to leave the marketplace, creating chaos, which confirmed the causal relationship between the DPT vaccine and encephalitis. In order to pacify the agitating parents, the Congress decided to make a coalition of physicians, public health organizations, leaders of industry, government representatives and private citizens. The end result was the enactment of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act of 1986.
In India, even after about two decades, there is no significant movement in the direction towards any legislation to get compensation for the vaccine- injured citizen from the health care providers. It is not because of any scarcity of health hazards caused by vaccines, but because there is no organized move in this direction.
The world’s biggest trial to assess the value of the BCG tuberculosis vaccine was conducted in Southern India. The result was a startling and unpardonable revelation that the vaccine ‘does not give any protection against the bacillary forms of Tuberculosis’.’ There was not a single agency to revolt against this confession of the Indian Council for Medical Research that the pompous execution of BCG vaccination program that flawlessly covered every citizen of independent India was a total failure and to forcefully stop the brainless continuance of giving BCG vaccines to the new born babies with the pretense that it is able to control the cerebral variety of Tuberculosis. We have to understand that Holland had the lowest death rate from TB in Europe due to the fact that it rejected the TB vaccine. TB is now making a widespread comeback, particularly in intensively vaccinated tropical countries including India. Nobody seriously raises protests against the Hepatitis B. Vaccine being given to newborn babies through the private nursing homes in spite of having very serious adverse effects including deaths.
Let us see why there should be serious reconsideration about the effectiveness of vaccines. There are evidences to prove that, the diseases occurred in several innocent people only because they were forcefully vaccinated, thereby posing serious doubts regarding the efficiency of the vaccines and confirming the fact that the continuous introduction of powerful foreign substances like vaccine can do serious harm especially in relatively weaker constitutions. Even though such events are explained away by the possible flaws occurred in the preservation process, it does not in any case nullify the facts. In several instances, serious complications have emerged following vaccinations, sometimes of more serious nature than the disease itself. When mandatory vaccination programs are carried out, there will be consideration only about hundred percent coverage of the program and never the individuality of the person being vaccinated. This will surely produce serious side effects in susceptible individuals because any such unnecessary stimulation of the immune mechanism of the body is sure to produce serious problems in the natural defense of the individual. There is information available to prove the occurrences of about 50 cases of Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus when 10,000 people get immunized. In a survey recently published in the journal of American Medical Association, it was reported that children receiving the Pertussin vaccine were 6 times more likely to develop asthma than those not received the vaccine. Vaccines can very seriously disturb the electromagnetic vibration rate of the body. When the vaccines are directly administered into the system by injecting needles, they are bye-passing the natural mucosal immune system of the respiratory and gastro intestinal tracts. Surveillance study after the administration of the vaccines is not carried out in a faultless manner. Any such complaint received from an afflicted parent is totally blocked at the grass root level itself by the iron-sheathed argument that Vaccination is harmless. The ignorant parent is made to believe that the new occurrence of disease is an entirely new set of diseases having no relationship to the vaccines taken.
Regarding the safety of vaccines let us see some statistics from USA. After the enactment of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act, The US Federal Government’s NVIC program has paid out over 724.4 million dollars to parents of vaccine injured and killed children. The NVICP has received over 5000 petitions since 1988, including over 700 for vaccine-related deaths, and there are still over 2800 total deaths and injury cases pending that may take years to resolve (NVICP, Health Resources and Services Administration). Today, the bitter truth is that, although more than one billion dollars has been paid out to some 1,000 families whose loved ones have been harmed by vaccines, three out of four vaccine victims are turned away. In the case of several vaccines, the number of vaccine-related deaths is always greater than the number of disease deaths. In short, the vaccine is 100 times more deadly than the disease. In India, we have not started considering the victims’ grievances not because there are no vaccine- related deaths or injuries, but because we have not enacted a similar NVIC Act to entertain their complaints and hence we could very easily ignore them.
