Critical view of vaccinations

Dear Editor:

It has been shown via published reports that the rates for polio, diphtheria, whooping cough and measles were in steep decline before the vaccines that claimed to inoculate them were widely administered.

“In the history of flu vaccines, there were two years in which the formulated flu vaccine was a total mismatch to the widely circulating influenza that made people sick, 1968 and 1997. In effect, nobody was vaccinated! If the vaccine was effective at reducing death rates, then we should have seen a huge spike in the death rates during these two years. But what really happened was … nothing. The death rates didn’t rise at all.” Please refer to “Do Vaccines Matter?” by Shannon Brownlee and Jeanne Lenzer, November 2009, The Atlantic.

A quote from my family physician Dr. Incao, “Incredible as it sounds, such a common-sense controlled study comparing vaccinated to unvaccinated children has never been done in America for any vaccination.” How can this be?

I am tired of the holier-than-though belief in western medicine and the CDC. It’s not all bad; our doctors, god bless them, excel in the ER and offer many life-saving surgeries. But when it comes to nutrition, health and disease – we have a long way to go, as the rates of illness continue to rise. If our methodologies and theories were working, shouldn’t we see a decrease in overall disease?

Disease, in most cases, is the result of two things – toxicity and poor nutrition; yes, genetics plays a role. Over the years, notice how disease rates correlate with the increase in use of medications and vaccines, environmental pollution and the poor nutritional value of our food supply. You won’t find this information in medical school. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, would not be happy.

Why isn’t anyone marching in the streets about genetically modified foods (most corn and soy), which cause all types of sickness in laboratory animals? Or the fact that most of our food is loaded with corn syrup, which the FDA has known for several years contains mercury.
