Deaths from infectious diseases decreased dramatically before mass vaccination even began. The graph below shows that deaths from measles, scarlet fever, whooping cough, diphtheria and smallpox had decreased by as much as 98% before vaccines were in mass usage.
Note: Many more graphs showing that acute illnesses of childhood as well as other diseases had nearly completely disappeared before vaccination programs are at http://www.dissolvingillusions.com/graphs/
If vaccines were not responsible for the decrease in deaths from infectious diseases, what was? Basic hygiene such as clean water, plumbing, waste disposal, sewage treatment and improved diet are what caused reduced disease mortality (deaths) and morbidity (sickness) all over the world. Not vaccination.
As proof, consider scarlet fever (in the graph above). Like whooping cough (pertussis) and measles and so many other infectious diseases it was a serious problem, killing many children. Yet scarlet fever deaths dropped dramatically to nearly zero today even though there was no vaccine for it.
The graph shows that both times compulsory smallpox laws were passed smallpox peaked; it was only when people stopped vaccinating and compulsory vaccination laws in England and Wales were removed that the disease dropped significantly. A study of the data reveals that rather than prevent disease vaccination was responsible for the spread of sickness and many deaths.
Both diseases were disappearing on their own before vaccination. See the graphs below.
By the time the Salk polio vaccine was introduced in America in 1955, polio was a third of what it had been in 1952, due to legislative restrictions on the use of pesticides including DDT as well as other toxins that were discovered to be the cause of infantile paralysis not some mysterious virus.
In fact, the polio vaccination campaign had to be halted because of the damage it was causing.
The polio vaccine campaign resulted in 40,000 cases of polio, paralyzed 200 children (most paralyzed for life) and left 10 dead.
One notable example of that fiasco that killed and paralyzed:
Dr. Alton Ochsner, one of the most prominent doctors in New Orleans, to demonstrate that the Salk polio vaccine was safe, inoculated his 30-month-old grandchild Eugene Allen Davis, Jr. The child died eight days later of infantile paralysis. His granddaughter contracted polio but survived.
The damage done by the Salk vaccine led to these observations:
The Salk and Sabin polio vaccines, being made from monkey kidney tissue, has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukemia. – Frederick Robert Klenner, MD
It is now generally recognized that much of the Salk vaccine that has been used in the U.S. has been worthless.
About 54% of children lamed as a result of poliomyelitis had received three doses of oral polio vaccine before the onset of paralysis.
Smallpox was a disease of filth and had been disappearing all over the globe for decades due to improvements in lifestyle. The only exceptions to its complete disappearance were smallpox vaccination programs that caused spikes in smallpox incidence and deaths all over the world.
It was largely the WHO (World Health Organization) program of quarantine and hygiene that caused smallpox to disappear, not the smallpox vaccine. As smallpox expert Dr. Glen Dettman, PhD, observed in 1986:
It is pathetic and ludicrous to say we ever vanquished smallpox with vaccines, when only 10% of the population was ever vaccinated.
Vaccinations make no difference to improve a nation’s health. They are useless and, in fact, cause tremendous harm, including death. There will be sickness and death from infectious diseases if there is poor nutrition, improper waste removal, filthy water and other unhygienic conditions no matter how many or how few vaccines are administered. When vaccines are given to premature, malnourished, sickly, low birthweight children there is even more sickness and death.
Vaccinations damage children’s health by injecting toxins so deep into their bodies that they are usually unable to externalize the symptoms. This sets the stage for chronic illness.
Vaccines do not prevent disease, rather what they do is inject toxins so deeply that the child cannot generate symptoms to detoxify or externalize them. As a result, instead of experiencing and recovering from a temporary acute (short-lived) illness these children become permanently, chronically ill (lifelong illness).
That is why we now have an epidemic of nearly exclusively vaccinated children suffering from asthma, allergies, attention deficit disorder, autism, bronchitis, cancer, dyslexia, otitis media (ear infections), hay fever, herpes, hyperactivity, scoliosis, skin conditions, epilepsy, autoimmune disorders, thyroid disease, autism and diabetes and other immunological and neurological problems that were very rare before vaccination programs.
While government agencies and drug companies refuse to conduct studies comparing the health of vaccinated to non-vaccinated children, independent researchers have done so and their findings repeatedly reveal that non-vaccinated children are healthier than vaccinated children or, put another way, vaccinated children are sicker than non-vaccinated children.
A few examples follow:
Children vaccinated with the DPPT (diphtheria, pertussis, polio tetanus) vaccine or MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine had 14 times more asthma and 9.4 times more eczema than non- vaccinated children.
Among the vaccinated, 23.1% developed asthma while 30% had other allergic illnesses. None (0%) of the non-immunized children had asthma or other allergic illness.
Of those children vaccinated with pertussis 10.69% developed asthma. There was one case of asthma out of 91 who had no vaccinations at all.
Recently a peer-reviewed study comparing vaccinated to non-vaccinated children found the following:
There is no proof that vaccination gives you healthier children, yet there is an increasing body of evidence showing that vaccinations produce sicker children.

My suspicion, which is shared by others in my profession, is that the nearly 10,000 SIDS deaths that occur in the United States each year are related to one or more of the vaccines routinely given children.
– Robert Mendelsohn, MD
Parents place their baby in the crib for the night and in the morning they find their child is dead. This is Crib Death, also referred to as SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), and it now a leading cause of infant death in the United States. The cause is officially unknown, or is it?
Reports of death and brain damage following vaccination have repeatedly appeared in the medical literature. For example, as early as 1946 the Journal of the American Medical Association had a paper discussing the death of twin boys within 24 hours of their receiving the pertussis shot.
Dr. William Torch, of the University of Nevada School of Medicine at Reno, studied 103 cases of SIDS. He found that two-thirds of the children had received DPT immunizations in the three weeks prior to their deaths. Many of them died within 24 hours of receiving the shot. Dr. Torch said this was not “mere coincidence” and concluded that a “causal relationship is suggested” in at least some cases of crib death affecting young infants.
Harris Coulter, PhD, the medical historian, observed that vaccination and crib death seemed related:
‘Crib death’ was so infrequent in the pre-vaccination era that it was not even mentioned in the statistics, but it started to climb in the 1950s with the spread of mass vaccination…. It appears that M.D.s invented the term sudden infant death syndrome to explain away the ‘coincidence’ that babies die about the same time they receive vaccines.
After 37 infant deaths from the DPT shot were reported the Japanese government, in 1975, declared it illegal to vaccinate a child under the age of two. Until that time, the Japanese had been following the American schedule that (at that time) started at two months.
When infant vaccinations halted a most curious thing occurred – meningitis and infantile convulsions virtually disappeared in Japan.
In addition, Japanese infant mortality, which had been 17th in the world, soared to 1st place – the lowest infant mortality rate in the world.
But another surprise was in store. With the minimum age of vaccination raised to age two suddenly serious infectious diseases such as meningitis sharply increased in 2-year-olds.
The relationship between infant death and vaccination was revealed in a more recent study.
The Miller-Goldman study that was published in Human and Experimental Toxicology revealed that countries requiring the most vaccines for children under the age of one also have the highest rates of death in that age group.
In other words, not only was the infant mortality rate (IMR) not improved by vaccinating more, the opposite was found: Infant deaths increased with increased vaccine doses.
The study revealed that in 2009, Singapore, Sweden and Japan were first, second and third in infant mortality; these countries recommend the fewest vaccines of any country reviewed.
However, the US CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends 26 vaccines before the age of one – more than any other country – and the US is 34th in infant mortality among developed nations.
The authors repeat the suspicions of other researchers in suggesting that the diagnosis of crib death or SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) is used to avoid writing “vaccine death” on the baby’s death certificate.
Mothers who were vaccinated against measles cannot pass on the protection to their infants, so infants now get measles. – Gerhard Buchwald, MD
When a woman is pregnant, her immunity is transferred to her unborn baby through the placenta in the womb. In that way mothers-to-be give their babies what is termed “passive” immunity. It’s referred to as passive because the baby didn’t have to work for it.
There’s a special name for this type of passive immunity: transplacentally-transmitted immunity or TTI. Before the vaccine era, TTI protected babies and infants for up to two years.
But when a young girl is vaccinated she does not develop natural immunity and years later, when she gets pregnant, she is unable to give her unborn child as much protection through the placenta. Her baby has less TTI.
As a result, today newborn and babies are coming down with measles, mumps, whooping cough and other diseases at birth, when these diseases, relatively benign in childhood, are far more dangerous, even fatal to a newborn or infant.
The babies of mothers who were vaccinated are more susceptible to measles than are infants of mothers who had natural measles.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions and with the best of intentions we have turned relatively benign rites of passage into killers. There is now more measles occurring in children less than one and adults 25 years and older when the disease can be far deadlier.
Want to ensure that your grandchildren are protected from disease and healthier? Don’t vaccinate your children. Naturally immune mothers and their babies have considerably more antibodies than those who had been vaccinated.
Having acute illnesses with fever, such as childhood diseases, and even colds and flu are associated with decreased cancer incidence later in life. Acute illness has been shown to have a protective effect for chronic illness and cancer.
Infections may play a paradoxical role in cancer development with chronic infections often being tumorigenic and acute infections being antagonistic to cancer.
Exposure to febrile infectious childhood diseases were associated with subsequently reduced risks for melanoma, ovary, and multiple cancers … infections [are] associated with reduced risks for meningioma, glioma, melanoma and multiple cancers combined…. Overall, risk reduction increased with the frequency of infections, with febrile infections affording the greatest protection.
A study published in the journal Cancer found that those who had experienced infections and colds had a 70% lower risk of cancer.
Even more dramatically another study revealed this shocking finding:
Cancer was six times higher in patients who never experienced a common cold and fifteen times higher for those who had never experienced a fever.
Evidence from a growing number of studies indicates that exposure to common infections early in life may be protective against childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
In yet another study, a history of common colds or flu was found to be protective against cancer, specifically carcinomas of the stomach, colon, rectum, breast and ovary.
Clearly, we are doing our children no favor, and potentially great harm, when we prevent them from experiencing normal childhood illnesses and prevent them from having fevers and other symptoms that help detoxify and cleanse. Fevers are one of the most powerful cancer preventative and cancer-fighting mechanisms living beings have.
Vaccines are ineffective, make children chronically ill, kill infants, interfere with transplacental immunity, prevent the development of natural immunity and put the child at greater risk for cancer.
Vaccination is without doubt the greatest blunder in the history of medicine – causing untold death and sickness to millions of babies and children.
One day vaccination will be looked at as we look at bloodletting, leeches, hot irons, cow dung, eugenics and other bizarre health beliefs and interventions of the past.
Let us hope it is not too late. As Stephanie Seneff, PhD, research scientist at MIT reports:
I’ve watched the rate of autism skyrocket … one in 150, one in 100, one in 88, and the most recent numbers, in March of 2013, one in 50 … twenty years from now every other child (80% of the boys) in this country today will be diagnosed on the autism spectrum.
The choice is obvious – to protect your children (and grandchildren) from serious illness, especially chronic illness, and ensure they are healthier their entire lives, don’t vaccinate them.

Excellent! Thank you Dr. Koren..
Thank you, Dr. Tedd. The article is well documented and concise.
Thanks for sharing these facts and this knowledge, which is very powerful. Of course, there will be those people who deny reality and still believe that the earth is flat!
Definitely much food for thought, every one needs to be aware of this info , preferably before they let someone sink a needle into their child
Thank you for the research summary.
Flat out excellent article, Dr. Koren. The polio statistics, however, are off – mass vaccination began in ’55, not ’56, and field trials of the Salk vaccine, involving over a million children, had actually begun in ’54. A graph of reported incidence from the mid-30s through 1954 will show a continued rise, the 1952 figure being anomalous. DDT production and use wasn’t banned until the early ’70s, but by that time polio incidence was already down to double digits. in ’55 the government radically changed the diagnostic parameters of polio, automatically eliminating upwards of 90% of diagnoses going forward, which indeed was in the main responsible for the as radical drop in reported incidence within just a few years. Over successive changes, the diagnostic parameters were subsequently made even more restrictive, each change making more unlikely a diagnosis of paralytic polio.
While this may sound like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, it’s not. It points out the virtual stranglehold the vaccine industry, including the government, has on public perception, via their mainstream media lackeys. Polio isn’t the only so-called vaccine preventable so-called disease – I’ve no doubt pesticides were a major factor – for which diagnostic parameters were changed after the introduction of the vaccine, but it’s by far the most egregious.
Great info and list of FACTS.
Awesome article… thanks for the summary. I have a brother with 2 kids who have never had vaccines… totally healthy and when they get sick they seem to need a nap and then be back to normal while the rest of the class is sick for a week or more (and they are immunized).
