Oh my, I hope I can state my position before you keel over from your lengthy time on this disease ridden earth. Living through all these ages of epidemics coming and going, I would think this would bring you a greater awareness of the great accomplishments of the times. A graph displaying disease death rate over the last 100 years is quite telling. No matter the disease or country (1st world of course) the rate of decline is identical. Astonishing! Even diseases such as scurvy, typhoid fever, and scarlet fever all declined at the same luxurious curvy slant down to nonexistence. My word, to what can we attribute such a feat? A vaccine? Of course not, a vaccine was never developed for scurvy, typhoid fever, or scarlet fever. Additionally, the downward slant begun many years before many of the current vaccines were developed or universally used. (see charts at end of post)
So if it wasn't due to vaccines, then what else during these time periods could have produced this sudden boost in the health of the populace? Perhaps better food, clean drinking water, better sanitation, less overcrowded and better living conditions. I mean before 1850 doctors didn't even wash their hands or equipment between patients. Simple things that we take for granted such as coughing in your sleeve, blowing your nose in a tissue, and washing your hands thoroughly with soap and clean water go a long way. Nutrition has an even bigger part to play in the function of our immune systems. Social health and welfare reforms in the 1940's began to provide free milk, among other nourishment, to help children fight disease.
So where do vaccines fit into this? Right into big pharma's pocket. The rate of disease plummeted to nothing and yet more and more doses of vaccines are being implemented younger and younger. In the 1940's children received 2 shots. In the 1980's children received 8 shots. Currently? 50! Now unless I missed the rise of a horrible deadly epidemic during my childhood in the 90's there is no warrant for such an increase, beginning a few hours after birth. Nothing like "welcome to the world little one, now let me inject some aluminium, Polysorbate 80, formaldehyde, and various other components directly into your blood stream." And when the child suddenly develops seizures, "whoops, oh well have fun in the vaers court system for the next 5 years. You have a 1 in 4 chance of actually getting compensated from the taxpayers."
Most parents want what is best for their child, and right now the default position is to vaccinate. The T.V. tells you to, your doctors tell you to, and all the angry pro-vaxxers tell you to, so to say it is the sheep or uninformed people who don't vaccinate is truly false. Sheeple follow the crowd, the majority, and the anti-vaxxer road is hard and dangerous. You don't take this path unless you have done research and are passionate about it. Sadly most anti-vaxxers become passionate because of the damage that was done to or the loss of a loved one due to vaccines and this is becoming a more common reality, thus the rise in the anti-vax community.
The U.S. spends by far the most on health care, is by far the sickest country, implements the most vaccines, and
The United States has a higher infant mortality rate than any of the other 27 wealthy countries,
We are also the only country (besides Australia I believe) to allow pharmaceutical companies to directly advertise to the populace. Whether it's vaccines, cholesterol pills, or viagra it seems every other commercial or billboard is medical related. Young minds are being bombarded nonstop with, "take a pill for this" and "a shot for that", without being told the potential consequences (at least not at normal speed).
My concern lies in those who put a lot of faith in the numbers and data from an extremely corrupt system and together with these companies demand that all people regardless of their beliefs and/or medical standing to be forced against their will to be/ or for their children to be vaccinated. Especially when the companies who produce, said product, are immune from litigation, cannot be put at fault or held responsible for the outcome. If a bad batch is made and hundreds die, "oops, oh well give some of the tax money to the families to shut them up." and they continue to function normally as if nothing happened. Such power over the people cannot be handed over to such a corrupt system, one that flourishes on keeping the populace ill with life-long "treatable" diseases.
