When Lendon H.Smith (1921-2001) graduated from medical school with good grades, he was a proud young man. He believed everything he had been taught at the University of Oregon Medical School in the USA, and now he was all set to become a paediatrician like his father before him. This was at a time when widespread vaccinations against childhood diseases had been introduced and penicillin and antibiotics, the so-called wonder drugs, had revolutionized the treatment of disease.
FIRST DOUBTS ABOUT VACCINATION
To the young Dr. Smith it was, in his words, ‘a perfect setup’. Here was an opportunity to control disease by prevention. What could possibly go wrong? However, as time went by in his practice, he was puzzled as to why children were still falling sick despite all the preventative measures being taken. He suspected that his patients were not following the prescribed vaccination programme. Why else would there be an increase in some infections? Ear infections continued, hyperactivity increased, and milk allergy became widespread. He did not want to listen when lay groups showed that some of the vaccinations were actually damaging children, after all, this was going against what he had been taught in medical school. Some mothers were actually refusing to have their babies vaccinated which made him angry that they should dare to fly in the face of ‘science’. Eventually, Dr.Smith accepted the fact that new evidence from valid research indicated that Mother Nature was indeed a better doctor. She is cruel but fair, whereas modern drugs and vaccines, he now believed, have proved to be a hoax in attaining health and have brought false hopes.
We are now better able to understand the immune system and how, with proper nutrition we can all, children and adults alike, ‘attain an optimum level of health with the aid of our own white blood cells and immunoglobulins despite bad genes from whatever side of the family.’
IMMUNE SYSTEM MUST BE PRIMED
Dr. Smith pointed out that the incidence of and the mortality from any infectious diseases had already declined by 90% before any vaccine came into use. During vaccine trials many children contracted the diseases against which they were being vaccinated, often within a few days. He claimed ‘it has been documented in medical literature that people who contract cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases in later years have remarkably few infectious diseases of childhood to report. Perhaps the most important of all good reasons to accept the infectious diseases of childhood is a well documented fact that the immune system must be primed and challenged in young individuals if it is to function properly and protect the individual against the far worse auto-immune diseases of later life, such as cancer’. He went on to say that, tragically, despite the vast amount of literature indicating that vaccinations to control whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella and polio are not effective, medical authorities continue to turn a blind eye. Worse, these vaccines are damaging children’s immune systems before they have time to develop, to the point of allowing these same diseases and other devastations to invade their unprotected bodies. “Risking one’s life by an intervention which is probably ineffective, to avoid a disease which will probably never occur, is not sound medical practice. Soap and peroxide seem to be safer than (tetanus) shots.”
Eighty years ago in the UK, children were only vaccinated against smallpox. Vaccines against diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus were introduced much later, in the 1950’s.
RECOMMENDED VACCINATIONS AS AT OCTOBER 2018
Nowadays, the number of vaccinations has increased dramatically. Here you can view the recommended check list of vaccinations that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK, free on the NHS, and the age at which they should ideally be given. Click here.
Why is vaccination against rubella, which is only a serious problem to babies in utero in the first three months, given to pre-primary school children, boys as well as girls? Immunity becomes weakened in adulthood and this may actually increase the risk of developing the disease during pregnancy.
Better housing, nutrition and hygiene have played an important part and some say that a natural regression of virulence may also have occurred which would account for the fact that, without vaccines, scarlet fever, for example, once a common and sometimes fatal disease is now very rarely seen. Smallpox has remained eradicated without an ongoing prevention programme, so why continue to vaccinate against other diseases that no longer cause a threat? Tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough) and diphtheria occur so seldom in the UK that as a doctor, you may never see a case in a working lifetime.
EPIDEMIC OF CHILDHOOD AILMENTS
As Dr.Campbell-Mc.Bride says in her book ‘Gut and Psychology Syndrome’, since the intensive vaccination programme was introduced ailments such as childhood asthma, eczema, diabetes, allergies, hay fever, digestive disorders, ADHD/ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity) and dyslexia, have reached epidemic proportions.
In the USA, according to Dr.Joseph Mercola writing in his on-line medical newsletter, children are expected to get 48 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they are just 6 years old – starting with the first vaccine given on the day of birth. By age 18, federal public health officials say they should have had a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines.
Here in the UK, Dr.Richard Halvorsen, author of The Truth About Vaccines, says that children are exposed to far too many potentially dangerous drugs at a young, vulnerable age. Parents who follow the UK’s vaccination schedule, he said, are exposing their children to 25 vaccines by the age of 15 months.
In 2009, neurosurgeon Dr Russell Blaylock observed something even more worrying; there is a dangerous trend, worldwide, for various governments at different levels resorting to making vaccination mandatory. No regulatory agency is tracking to see if chronic diseases are rising in the vaccinated, yet as Dr. Campbell-Mc.Bride pointed out, we have compelling evidence of a massive rise in all auto-immune diseases, neuro-degenerative diseases, and certain cancers.
“The fact that powerful, enormously wealthy foundations, such as the Ford Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Rockefeller series of foundations, are supporting forced vaccination greatly enhances the power of governments all over the world. These foundations operate in the shadows, influencing legislation and government actions through the World Health Organization and individual governmental bodies. Behind every call for forced vaccinations, mandated quarantines, and home invasions, one can find one of these foundations providing the money as well as experts. Remember, the largest of the pharmaceutical-vaccine manufacturers are also providing much of the money for the foundations and serving on the boards of these foundations. The Rockefellers either owned outright or had controlling interest in all of the major pharmaceutical companies. This has given them absolute and extremely powerful access to the reins of power at all levels. Yet, they can be defeated by the truth.”
IMMUNITY SHORT LIVED
Dr. Blaylock said that when he was in medical school they were taught that all childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime and this thinking existed for over 70 years. ‘It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades.” He believes that this is why the vaccine proponents began, silently, to suggest boosters for most vaccines, even the common childhood infections such as chicken pox, measles, mumps and rubella.
NO RESURGENT EPIDEMICS
“If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations.”
In the 1940’s mass civilian screening for tuberculosis took place in the UK. Large walk-in vehicles specially adapted to carry portable X Ray machines toured the country. On examination of the results, it was a great surprise to find that a majority of people showed healed tuberculosis lesions in their lungs, despite never having suffered from the disease.
WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE?
So with the vaccination programme coming under more and more scrutiny, not to mention the serious problem of contamination, what is to be done? No animal in the wild would have all of its young survive. Nature dictates that, by the law of natural selection, only by the strongest and healthiest of each species survives.
Dr. Campbell-McBride refers to the days before vaccination when many children died of childhood infections such as measles, diphtheria, mumps and other diseases. This was a form of natural selection but it now presents us with a terrible dilemma. She explains, “In our modern world we humans are not prepared to obey this law. No mother would allow her child to perish when there are ways to let the child live, despite the fact that this child may not be the strongest and fittest that she can produce. Childhood infections are one of the tools of natural selection. Children who survive them come out healthier with stronger immune systems; weak children are not supposed to survive them. Vaccinations are one of those ways we humans have invented to allow our weaklings to survive. So, we cannot abandon vaccinations altogether unless we are prepared to obey the laws of Nature. We have to come up with a more rational approach to vaccinations.”
TESTS BEFORE VACCINATION
Because the number of immune-compromised children in developed countries is growing at an alarming rate, Dr. Campbell-McBride proposes that a comprehensive immunological survey should be performed on every baby before a decision about vaccination is made. The survey should first assess the health history of the parents and the infant, then test the baby’s risk of gut dysbiosis by analyzing the stool and urine, and thirdly assess the baby’s immune status. The results of these tests would show whether the baby should have either no vaccinations at all, delay them until the results are better, or go ahead with the vaccination if all the tests show normal immune development. She recommends only single vaccines should be used, pointing out that it is very unlikely for a child to be exposed to more than one childhood disease at a time, so why run the risk of multiple vaccinations?
ASSAULT ON THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Dr Viera Scheibner PhD, former research scientist for the New South Wales government and author of 'Vaccination. 100 years of orthodox medical research show that vaccination is an assault on the immune system', has conducted extensive research into the medical literature and says, in summary: "I did not find it difficult to conclude that there is no evidence whatsoever that vaccines of any kind are effective in preventing the infectious diseases they are supposed to prevent. Further, adverse effects are amply documented and are far more significant to public health than any adverse effects of infectious diseases. Immunizations not only did not prevent any infectious diseases, they caused more suffering and more deaths than has 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."
The late Dr.Rex Newnham said that the drug companies have turned vaccination into big business that seeks big profits and called for people to be aware of what is happening. He advised worried parents to get in touch with an organization entitled The Informed Parent at www.informedparent.co.uk
Dr. Lendon Smith’s suggested solution is direct, simple and logical. He was a great believer in Vitamin C together with a sugarless diet and no processed foods. He recommended ‘an intake of vitamin C of about 1,000 milligrams per day for each year of life up to 5,000 mgs at age five. Vitamin C is our best defense and everyone should be on this one even before birth. Three thousand mg daily for the pregnant woman is a start. The baby should get 100 mg per day, per month of age. (The six month old would get 600 mg, the year-old gets a thousand mgs daily, the two year-old would get 2,000 mgs., etc.) A daily dose of 2,000 to 5,000 mg would be prudent for a lifetime.” If and when they get an infection of any kind, the dose should be raised to 500 mg or 1000 mg of vitamin C hourly. They will get the disease, the immune system will have learned what to do about it and complications will be rare. Vaccinations are not working and they are dangerous. We should be working with nature.’
