Mortality Decreased Before Vaccines

I know there are many people under the belief that if we stopped vaccinating, or even just selectively vaccinated, that all these infectious diseases would come back and wipe out civilization. I’m sure this is what Bill Gates wants you to believe.

It would certainly make a very profitable marketing campaign to tell everyone they’re going to die if they don’t take your product–but that’s all it is. It’s a gigantic, convoluted marketing campaign. With so many people with their hands in the cookie jar, it’s time to start listening to moms (who never even get a cookie, it turns out).

They might even show you something like this to prove their point:

But…they won’t show you this:

Separating Vaccine Truth from Vaccine Fiction

The mortality rates for the most common infectious diseases dropped substantially BEFORE the vaccines were even licensed. Many of them never even had vaccines: for example Scarlet Fever, Typhoid (general population), Dysentery, Tuberculosis, Syphilis.

Speaking of scarlet fever (caused by strep A): “There are 11,000 to 15,000 cases of invasive strep among kids each year in the United States, which result in up to 1,500 deaths,” Siegel said. Yet because there is no vaccine for it, it does not capture the attention, or stir the fear… I mean, I don’t see tik tok videos about scarlet fever, and not so much as a tweet from California State Senator Richard Pan. What gives?

It’s easy to take it for granted, but not that long ago, we didn’t have private toilets, sewage systems, clean running water, or refrigerators. Our streets were littered with absolute filth and this shaped the perception that disease spread through ‘miasma’ or stench. We hadn’t nailed down germ theory yet, that tiny microbes spread disease, but the filth and the pestilence were covered in pathogens.

Read Dissolving Illusions by Dr. Suzanne Humphries for a thorough examination of the complete transformation that lead to decreased mortality from infectious diseases.

Heck, we didn’t even have disposable syringes. Our doctors and nurses didn’t wear gloves and they might use the same syringe on a hundred patients, maybe more. Someone goes in for possible polio, you can imagine what happened next.

Victorian medicine at the turn of last century were syrups or tablets containing chloroform, strychnine, calomel a.k.a. mercuric chloride, or animal-derived (blood) serums given with reusable syringes. Honestly, I’m not surprised by the high mortality rates for infectious diseases—our cures were poison.

We thought nothing about using animals for human medicine (and therefore transferred animal viruses quite easily). Still working on that article! OMG it’s insane.

 

Read the Study for Yourself:

Trends in Infectious Disease Mortality in the United States During the 20th Century

Results:

“Infectious disease mortality declined during the first 8 decades of the 20th century from 797 deaths per 100,000 in 1900 to 36 deaths per 100,000 in 1980. From 1981 to 1995, the mortality rate increased to a peak of 63 deaths per 100,000 in 1995 and declined to 59 deaths per 100,000 in 1996.”

Comment:

“These declines coincided with the first clinical use of sulfonamides (1935), antibiotics (penicillin in 1941 and streptomycin in 1943), and antimycobacterials (streptomycin, first used against tuberculosis in 1944, para-aminosalicylic acid in 1944, and isoniazid in 1952). However, the reasons for the steep decline from 1938 to 1952 are probably many and cannot be determined by examination of the mortality data alone.”

No mention of vaccines, oh well.

Interestingly, according to the study: deaths due to infectious diseases began to increase in 1980 from 36 deaths per 100,000 to 65 deaths per 100,000 in 1995. In 2014, it dropped to 46 deaths per 100,000 people.

So we currently have 1. the most vaccines on the recommended schedule, 2. higher vaccine coverage, and 3. a higher mortality rate for infectious diseases than we did in 1980, when we had fewer vaccines and a lower vaccine coverage. Hmmmmmmm.
