PHYSICIANS WHO OPPOSE VACCINATION


Some doctors expressing very serious concern about mass vaccination have been vilified by the media. Because they have been so unjustly attacked, I will publicly take a stand with two physicians that I am proud to know and will vouch for personally: Dr. Andrew Wakefield and Dr. Suzanne Humphries. I urge you to watch their YouTube lectures and interviews. Here is a good one with Dr. Wakefield to start with. And this segment of Dr. Humphries' six-part series provides more advanced information.

CENSORSHIP?

Amazon.com apparently refuses to post my review of Dr. Wakefield's book, Callous Disregard. If you'd like to see it anyway, here it is:

"There is no such thing as freedom of choice unless there is freedom to refuse," attributed to philosopher David Hume, applies to the vaccination controversy. But there is no controversy as to vaccination safety: some are quite safe, and some are not safe. The Salk killed polio vaccine, and the tetanus shot, are examples of vaccinations with a long record of safety. The DPT and MMR shots are another story, and that is the story that Dr. Andrew Wakefield presents in this excellent book. I admit to a personal bias. Back in 1999, I was honored to be on the same speaking ticket with Dr. Wakefield. He is a brilliant scientist, a compassionate physician, and an honest man. He is not against vaccination, in spite of what you may have been told. He is against unsafe, inadequately tested, forced vaccinations. He is against putting children at risk. I agree with him and will stand by his research. I have seen it. Have his critics? Has the public? Vaccination safety is too important an issue to be drowned in sound bytes. I urge you to read this book (and I also recommend that you watch the VAXXED movie) and make up your mind for yourself.

BACKGROUND TO THE VACCINATION CONTROVERSY

Of course I long ago joined the ranks of the anti-vaccinationists. A viewpoint like this sometimes gets you your fifteen minutes of fame. In Mother Earth News issue #85 (January-February 1984) I was correctly quoted saying:

"I do counsel people frequently on the pros and cons of vaccination.  But I never tell anyone not to get shots or to get shots. I simply point out the alternatives that are available." (Click here to read the complete article.) One should keep in mind that careful study of the medical profession's own statistics fails to verify the very common and highly emotional viewpoint that vaccination has been the major factor in the reduction of infectious diseases. As in the above mentioned interview, I ask readers to make up their own minds by obtaining copies of the journal articles I recommend in the bibliographies of my books and the References sections of this website. Those who do so will be no less surprised than I was to discover that J.F. Edward, F.R. Klenner, W.J. McCormick and other major critics of vaccination are medical doctors. 

 It is Dr. Edward, not I, who studied Canadian polio epidemics and concluded that polio is related to iodine deficiency. Dr. Edward then cured, as well as prevented, polio with small doses of iodine. The Manitoba Medical Review published his work in 1954, for any doctor or citizen to read.  I cite his work, but hope you'll read his paper. It is Dr. McCormick, not I, who carefully reviewed the medical literature and showed, in tables and graphs, the dramatic decline in typhoid, diptheria and whooping cough before inoculation/vaccination was available. ("The Changing Incidence and Mortality of Infectious Disease in Relation to Changed Trends in Nutrition," Medical Record, 1947.)  It is Dr. Klenner, not I, who successfully treated polio for nearly 45 years with very high doses of vitamin C and with exceptional success (A Physician's Handbook on Orthomolecular Medicine. R.J. Williams, ed., pp 51-59). It was a young Andrew Weil, M.D., not I, who criticized Koch's postulates and found fault in the entire germ theory (The Natural Mind, 1972).

 I agree with these doctors. You can agree with the ones you want.

 A reader once raised the question of how my children will be protected against disease if they are not vaccinated. I submitted the response that vaccinations offer little, if any, real protection against disease when you examine the records.

 According to New York City Department of Health director Dr. Morris Greenberg, polio fatalities decreased by nearly 90 percent from 1915 to 1955, before the polio vaccine was available to the public in 1955  (Howard Hillemann, in Clinical Physiology 2:2, 1960). How can we truly say, then, that vaccination got rid of polio? Toronto medical doctor William McCormick and Dr. Fred Klenner of North Carolina, also an M.D., both prevented and treated the childhood infectious diseases with large quantities of Vitamin C. Again in Medical Record (September 1947) Dr. McCormick shows a direct relation between these diseases and vitamin C deficiency. If vitamin C deficiency is the real cause of these illnesses, what are we doing emphasizing inoculations?

 Vitamin C is a proven effective, natural antibiotic and anti-toxin (The Healing Factor, by Irwin Stone discusses that research in detail).  My children were raised virtually vegetarian, because vegetarians statistically are less subject to infectious illness.  When they were preschoolers, we gave our children 250 mg. to 500 mg. of vitamin C with each vegetarian meal. Of course we did not have them inoculated; there are better ways."


OUR VACCINATION EXEMPTION LETTER

 I've also frequently been asked, 
"What does a vaccination exemption letter look like?  Well, it might look a lot like the one my children used:
 

 It is my sincerely held religious belief that immunization is detrimental to the health and purity of the body, mind and spirit.  Therefore, I respectfully request that I, (full name here) be allowed to attend school, namely (full name and address here) without being immunized.
