In Germany, compulsory mass vaccination against diphtheria commenced in 1940, and by 1945, diphtheria cases were up from 40,000 to 250,000. (Don't Get Stuck, Hannah Allen)
In 1871-2 England, with 98% of the population aged between 2 and 50 vaccinated against smallpox, it experienced its worst ever smallpox outbreak with 45,000 deaths. During the same period in Germany, with a vaccination rate of 96%, there were over 125,000 deaths from smallpox. (The Hadwen Documents)
In 1967, Ghana was declared measles-free by the World Health Organization after
96% of its population was vaccinated. In 1972, Ghana experienced one of its worst measles outbreaks with its highest ever mortality rate. (Dr. H. Albonico, MMR Vaccine Campaign in Switzerland, March 1990)
In the UK between 1970 and 1990, over 200,000 cases of whooping cough occurred in fully vaccinated children. (Community Disease Surveillance Centre, UK)
In the 1970s, a tuberculosis vaccine trial in India involving 260,000 people revealed that more cases of TB occurred in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated. (The Lancet 12/1/80 p73)
In 1977, Dr. Jonas Salk, who developed the first polio vaccine, testified along with other scientists that mass inoculation against polio was the cause of most polio cases throughout the USA since 1961. (Science 4/4/77 "Abstracts")
In 1979, Sweden abandoned the whooping cough vaccine due to its ineffectiveness. Out of 5,140 cases in 1978, it was found that 84% had been vaccinated three times! (BMJ 283:696-697, 1981)
In the New England Journal of Medicine July 1994 issue, a study found that over 80% of children under 5 years of age who had contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated.
In Oman between 1988 and 1989, a polio outbreak occurred amongst thousands of fully vaccinated children. The region with the highest infection rate had the highest vaccine coverage. The region with the lowest infection rate had the lowest vaccine coverage. (The Lancet, 9/21/91)
In 1990, the Journal of the American Medical Association had an article on measles which stated, "Although more than 95% of school-aged children in the US are vaccinated against measles, large measles outbreaks continue to occur in schools and most cases in this setting occur among previously vaccinated children." (JAMA, 11/21/90)
1. His work was not a scientific "study."
Wakefield et al actually published a "paper". Scientific papers are designed to answer a simple question. In this case the question was; do children with regressive autism have chronic enterocolitis? http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736%2897%2911096-0/abstract
2. "His paper claimed the MMR caused autism."
Wakefield et al's conclusions documented in his paper: "We identified associated gastrointestinal (GI) disease and developmental regression in a group of previously normal children, which was generally associated in time with possible environmental triggers."
He does NOT say the MMR vaccine causes autism or even that the GI disease was caused by the MMR. He answered the simple question that yes... GI disease and developmental regression was seen in a group of "previously normal children". Wakefield et al's conclusion is now validated with the weight of scientific data.
We now know that gastrointestinal disease is closely related to autism; " microbiome-CNS signaling", "gut bacteria may contribute to ASD", "overlaps with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and autoimmunity", "microbiome growth", "Maladaptive behaviors correlate with GI problems", "dietary factors may play a role as secondary triggers of autism", "gastrointestinal dysfunction characterizes a subset of children with ASD", "immune reactivity to gluten", "affected activity of brain regions", "addressing GI problems", and on and on (science references).
His paper's conclusions were REPLICATED and proven true: Walker, S., Fortunato, J., Gonzalez, L., Krigsman, A. (2013). Identification of unique gene expression profile in children with regressive autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and ileocolitis. PlosOne. Retrieved from: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0058058 "Taken as a whole, the picture that emerges is one in which GI symptomatic children with ASD in whom cellular infiltrate is present in the ileum and colon have a distinct molecular signature that is consistent with the larger disease categories of gastrointestinal disease, and more specifically, overlaps with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and autoimmunity."

Retrieved from http://www.scribd.com/doc/211406298/Krigsman-Et-Al-2010 Conclusions: Patients with autism or related disorders exhibiting chronic gastrointestinal symptoms demonstrate ileal or colonic inflammation upon light microscopic examination of biopsy tissue. Further work is needed to determine whether resolution of histopathology with appropriate therapy is accompanied by GI symptomatic and cognitive/behavioral improvement.
3. "Wakefield was charged with "fraud", or "forged data"
The data in question was the pathology reports that showed gastointestinal disease. Wakefield was not in charge of evaluating the pathology reports in this paper that was the charge of Dr. John O' Leary an independent Dublin pathologist. Dr. O'Leary stands by his reports, and they are not challenged by the UK's General Medical Council (GMC).
The UK General Medical Council charged Wakefield with serious professional misconduct and sanction, Wakefield was found guilty by the GMC (General Medical Council, pg. 7 & 9).
Professor Walker-Smith was also charged with and found guilty of serious professional misconduct and sanction, just as Wakefield. The description of the charges were similar with one variation being the monies given to Wakefield via the Legal Aid Board (LAB). On appeal all of the GMC's rulings toward Walker-Smith were overturned. The UK High Court's Mr. Justice Mitting criticized the U.K. General Medical Council, stating its judgment had been "based on inadequate and superficial reasoning" (High Court Of Justice, 2010).
The claims of the BMC were deemed false to which they did not appeal this decision. Source: http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Admin/2012/503.html Professor Murch's official charges were also serious professional misconduct and sanction. He was found guilty of professional misconduct but not of sanction.
On 9 November, David Lewis of the National Whistleblower's Center in Washington DC published a letter in the BMJ (http://bmj.com/) arguing that Wakefield did not commit research fraud. Source: http://www.bmj.com/rapid-response/2011/11/09/re-how-case-against-mmr-vaccine-was-fixed
This comment typically refers to the clinical investigations carried out by Walker-Smith, which included colonoscopies, barium studies, and lumbar punctures (LP). On appeal this charge by the General Medical Council as being "not clinically indicated" (pg. 4) was overturned by the U.K.'s High Court Of Justice (High Court Of Justice, 2010). Source: http://www.ebcala.org/areas-of-law/vaccine-law/co-author-of-lancet-mmr-autism-study-exonerated-on-all-charges-of-professional-misconduct
It is also important to note that the children had a positive diagnosis of GI disease through this workup, and were appropriately treated. The parents gave full consent for the procedures and were satisfied with the diagnosis and subsequent treatment. These children were not managed appropriately by their general practitioners regarding their untreated colitis. Further the LP's were ordered to assess the function of the CNS, which is appropriate since we now know that autism is a brain (encephalopathy)/body disorder, and the vaccine strain of measles has been found in the CNS of patients with encephalitis (science references). Barium studies are routine in assessing the upper GI tract.
His co - author was exonerated because his insurance paid for the case. Wakefield ' s did not but he has filed defamation charges and it's looking positive.
Also, why would he bring out a movie and more studies if he was lying? That seriously hurt his career but he cares more about the truth for the children.

MORE ON WAKEFIELD
Dr. Wakefield is a gastroenterologist. The so-called "study" was actually a paper, an observation, not a study.
He observed 12 children at the request of several parents. These children, according to the parents, regressed immediately following the MMR vaccine. Dr. Wakefield, along with several co-authors, concluded that the MMR appeared to cause intestinal issues and may contribute to other autism like symptoms, however, "more research should be done."
The paper was not retracted because of issues with the data, but rather because the funding was from a parent's group. In essences, it has never been "debunked."
He was quickly attacked by associates of media mogul Rupert Murdoch who's son James happened to sit on the board of Merck. Wakefield never went to jail. He still practices medicine here in the US. His study has since been duplicated more than 2 dozen times and dozens of other studies have confirmed that there is a link.
Professor John Walker-Smith, the co-author on Wakefield’s study, won his appeal against the UK’s General Medical Council regulatory board. This board originally ruled against him and Dr. Andrew Wakefield for their roles in the 1998 Lancet MMR paper. The board admitted their original conclusions were based on “inadequate and superficial reasoning and in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion.”
Dr. Wakefield was the victim of a massive smear campaign. All for making a discovery that would have changed the world's perception on vaccines. If word got out that the MMR contributed to gastrointestinal issues seen in autism, the MMR program would fail overnight.
What many people don't realize is that Dr. Wakefield has had the continued support of his "fraudulent" test families since 1998. Wakefield's partner who published the paper with him has since been exonerated and Wakefield is in the process of being exonerated.
It's important to also mention the CDC Whistleblower and the intentional destruction of data data on their MMR vaccine studies. And also the famous "Danish study" in which no autism/vaccine link was found was done by Paul Thorsen and his co-authors. Poul Thorsen is a wanted fugitive for 13 counts of wire fraud and 9 counts of money laundering. A federal grand jury alleges that Thorsen stole over $1 million from autism research funding between February 2004 and June 2008. The study he published found no correlation between autism and vaccines.
So who is the real fraud? Merck killed 40,000 people with their Vioxx lies. Any study put out by a pharmaceutical company cannot be trusted as it was designed, executed, and published by scientists who will make a profit off of that drug/vaccine. This is a HUGE conflict of interest. Merck is a BILLION dollar corporation. There is MUCH money to be lost if their vaccine programs fail.
It's also important to mention that Dr. Wakefield was NOT anti-vaccine and, in fact, his own children were fully vaccinated. He simply found a correlation with gastronintestinal issues, regressive autism, and the measles virus in the gut after MMR vaccination and he published a study on that with the recommendation that this issue be looked at more closely. And so began the massive smear campaign that would discredit him and ultimately land him in the USA. The vaccine industry was extremely successful in demonizing him in the eyes of the world at that time.
And since that time, many MANY children have suffered vaccine injury that ultimately led to their autism diagnosis. The government's own vaccine court has ruled in a few cases that certain vaccines were responsible for the child's regression into autism. Perhaps the most famous of these cases was the Hannah Poling case - http://www.cbsnews.com/.../family-to-receive-15m-plus-in.../
And thousands of families around the world (and especially in the US) continue to claim that their child regressed within days of certain vaccines (usually the MMR or the Dtap). Why should we not believe them? Why is their assessment of their child any less valid than your assessment of your child? They have nothing to gain by making these claims and they are risking their reputation as a sane person, in fact!
Most of these families will never make it to vaccine court. Their concerns over their child's new symptoms are quickly dismissed as "coincidence" by their doctor. The symptoms are not documented fast enough. Many parents are told it's normal to have a high fever, clinched fists, screaming, and even seizures after vaccines. And therefore there is no evidence to hold up in court. Hannah Poling's parents won their fight because her father was a practicing neurologist and her mother an attorney and registered nurse. They were extremely educated on the science and the law.
Dr. Wakefield ran out of money defending himself. His colleague had more money and was able to continue defending himself, so he was able to be completely exonerated. His initial findings were well-received and supported by the medical community until people started freaking out because he suggested that the MMR vaccination be split into three different vaccinations given at least one month apart. He never suggested that vaccines cause autism. He suggested that more research needed to be done.

All About Chick Embryos:
Once the incubation begins, it takes on average 21 days for an egg to hatch into a cute little baby chick. When the living embryo is 11-days old, at that time they inoculate the chick with the virus. Approximately 3 days later, the eggs are chilled to 39°F (4°C) for at least four hours to reduce the amount of bleeding into the fluids. It is centrifuged – sometimes more than once – to “purify” the slimy solution, attempting to remove as much chicken blood and tissue solution as possible. Despite the effort, egg-based vaccines have residual chicken blood and chicken protein in the final product and it is subsequently injected into your arm.
• The preparation is made from up to 5 embryos at a time. The embryo chickens selected are between 9 and 11 days old.
• The shell is opened, the embryo is removed and placed in a petri dish. The head is cut off; removal of limbs and intestines is optional.
• The bodies are placed into a beaker and chopped into chunks with sterile scissors. Or, chunks of the bodies can be placed into a 50cc syringe and mashed by pushing the chunks through the tip of the syringe into a beaker.
• The tissue fragments are then washed several times to remove residual red blood cells.
• The residual cells are rinsed three times with a trypsin (enzyme) solution to separate cells.
• The flask containing 20-30 cc of the solution is swirled for about 2 minutes, and then the cell suspension is poured into a centrifuge tube containing up to 10cc of bovine serum.
• The cells are extracted from the bottom of the centrifuge tube and diluted with calf serum, or if cell growth is desired, fetal bovine serum is used.
All About Bovine Serum
"Heavily pregnant cows are being slaughtered and the blood drained from their unborn calves' hearts to be sold for export - where it's used to produce vaccines and fake meat.
While the practice is legal, an industry whistleblower says it frequently causes unnecessary suffering, as the pregnant cows are confined in trucks or left standing for long periods.
Some even gave birth in transit or at the yards, a breach of animal welfare regulations. Pregnant cows are not supposed to be transported in their last month of gestation, without a vet certificate, or give birth after arriving for slaughter.
Last year, however, the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) recorded 22 births at meatworks, and is also currently investigating a current complaint about the transport of pregnant cows.
The Herald on Sunday's source, who did not want to be named to protect their job, said while some farmers may legitimately have miscalculated a cow's pregnancy, others were acting out of greed.
"Some will leave the cow pregnant as long as possible to get a bigger foetus to get more blood, to get more money," the insider said.
And that cow has already given her life to produce milk, I just don't see how they justify it. I think it's an appalling practice."
The harvest of foetal bovine serum - the official name for calf foetus blood - is the latest in a string of animal welfare issues to hit the New Zealand farming industry, including last week's revelations about intensive winter feeding, and previous concerns about culling of bobby calves.
The serum industry has been operating in New Zealand for at least 25 years. Each calf heart produces about 300ml. Farmers are believed to receive about $50 extra per harvest. The serum is exported around the world for up to $2500 a litre.
The serum is used in pharmaceuticals and in laboratories as a medium to grow cells - including in the formation of vaccines and, ironically, lab-grown meat.
Under the IPV section... " the large number of monkeys (about 1500) needed to be sacrificed to produce every 1 million inactivated doses." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3782271/
"Animal-derived products used in vaccine manufacture can include amino acids, glycerol, detergents, gelatin, enzymes and blood. Cow milk is a source of amino acids, and sugars such as galactose. Cow tallow derivatives used in vaccine manufacture include glycerol. Gelatin and some amino acids come from cow bones. Cow skeletal muscle is used to prepare broths used in certain complex media. Many difficult to grow microorganisms and the cells that are used to propagate viruses require the addition of serum from blood to the growth media."
The herd immunity theory was originally coined in 1933 by a researcher called Hedrich. He had been studying measles patterns in the US between 1900-1931 (years before any vaccine was ever invented for measles) and he observed that epidemics of the illness only occurred when less than 68% of children had developed a natural immunity to it. This was based upon the principle that children build their own immunity after suffering with or being exposed to the disease. So the herd immunity theory was, in fact, about natural disease processes and nothing to do with vaccination. If 68% of the population were allowed to build their own natural defences, there would be no raging epidemic.
Later on, vaccinologists adopted the phrase and increased the figure from 68% to 95% with no scientific justification as to why, and then stated that there had to be 95% vaccine coverage to achieve immunity. Essentially, they took Hedrich’s study and manipulated it to promote their vaccination programs.

Fast facts on herd immunity:
Suspending fluid (e.g. sterile water, saline, or fluids containing protein); preservatives and stabilizers to help the vaccine remain unchanged (e.g. albumin, phenols, and glycine); and adjuvants or enhancers to help the vaccine to be more effective.
Common substances found in vaccines include:
Antigen: All vaccines contain an active component (the antigen) which generates the protective immune response.
Adjuvant: An adjuvant is an ingredient that helps retain the active component of the vaccine (antigen) at the injection site and attract inflammatory factors and immune system cells to the injection site to improve the immune response to the vaccine. Aluminum is
the most common adjuvant.
Excipients: Excipients are all substances in the finished product, other than the active ingredients. Excipients may have been used during the manufacturing process or in the finished pharmaceutical product to maintain quality.
Preservatives: Preservatives stop unwanted contamination of a vaccine. They have been used in vaccines for many years. Serious adverse events have been associated with the use of these preservatives. 2-phenoxyethanol, Phenol, and Thimerosal are common preservatives.
Stabilizers: Stabilizers top chemical reactions from occurring in the vaccine and prevent the components from separating from each other or sticking to the vaccine vial during transportation and storage. Examples of stabilisers include sugars such as lactose and sucrose, amino acids such as glycine and monosodiumglutamate (MSG), proteins such as recombinant human albumin (Recombumin®) derived from baker’s yeast or fetal bovine (cow) serum and gelatin, partially hydrolysed collagen usually of porcine (pig) but can be of bovine origin.
Buffers: Buffers serve to resist changes in pH, adjust tonicity and maintain osmolarity. The most commonly used buffer is sodium chloride (table salt).
Surfactants: Surfactants are a type of emulsifier. They assist particles remain suspended in liquid, preventing settling and clumping, by lowering the surface tension of the liquid. An example is polysorbate 80 (Tween 80®), made from sorbitol (sugar alcohol) and oleic acid (omega-9 fatty acid), which is also used in foods such as ice cream. Surfactants are also used in shampoos, toothpastes, inks and fabric softeners.
Solvents: A solvent is a substance that dissolves another substance, creating a solution. The most common solvent used in everyday living, and vaccine manufacture, is water.
Residuals: Residuals are the remaining minute quantities of substances that have been used during the manufacturing or production process of individual vaccines. Residuals depend on the process used, which may have involved cell culture mediums, egg proteins, yeast, antibiotics such as neomycin or streptomycin or inactivating agents such as formaldehyde. These substances are only present as traces and often measured as parts per million and parts per billion in the final vaccine formulation.
Animal derived products: Some people have concerns about animal derived products such as gelatin in vaccines. This may be for faith-based reasons or concerns about the safety of animal derived products. More information on animal derived products in vaccines can be found in the fact sheet National Immunisation Schedule vaccines and animal derived products on our Written Resources webpage.
Diluents: A diluent is a liquid used to dilute a vaccine to the proper concentration immediately prior to administration. This is usually sterile water.
If your kids are healthy, you have little to worry about. Being sick isn’t always fun.... Measles, chickenpox, the flu, etc. Annoying?! Yes. Death sentence? No. Common childhood illnesses are not to be feared!
You pass by people all day that may have recently been vaccinated with a live virus. You might have opened a door after someone, shook someone’s hand, put your baby in a grocery cart, used a pen at the bank.... all could’ve been coughed on by someone recently vaccinated. Stop worrying and live life normally!
You don’t need a ton of supplements or herbal preventatives. Even natural things can become a crutch to your body. If you really want to help keep your kids from getting sick, there’s two important things you can do.
Teach them to wash their hands properly...before meals, after using the bathroom, when coughing or sneezing, etc. Wet hands, apply soap, rub hands together for 20-30 seconds (sing the ABCs), rinse and dry.
Eat healthy. The number one thing you can do for your immune system is to nourish it with clean, whole foods. Avoid (or cut down on) processed foods and sugar. According to a study done by Loma Linda University, when you eat 100 grams of sugar (about as much sugar as you find in a 1 liter bottle of soda) your white blood cells are 40 percent less effective at killing germs. You can cripple your immune system for up to 5 hours after eating sugar! Glucose, fructose and sucrose all significantly decreased the activity of neutrophils to engulf bacteria! (Neutrophils are the "first responders" of white blood cells when there are invading microbes.) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/4748178/
