Have Vaccines been proven to work?

Have Vaccines been proven to work?

Surprisingly, vaccination has never actually been clinically proven to be effective in preventing disease, for the simple reason that no researcher has directly exposed test subjects to diseases (nor may they ethically do so). The medical community’s gold standard, the double blind, placebo-controlled study, has not been used to compare vaccinated and unvaccinated people, and so the practice remains scientifically unproven. Furthermore, it is important to recognize that not everyone exposed to a disease develops symptoms (indeed, only a tiny percentage of a population need develop symptoms for an epidemic to be declared). Thus, if a vaccinated individual is exposed to a disease and doesn’t get sick, it is impossible to know whether the vaccine worked, because there is no way to know if that person would have developed symptoms if he or she had not been vaccinated. It is also worth noting that outbreaks in recent years have recorded more disease cases in vaccinated children than in unvaccinated children.

According to the British Association for the Advancement of Science, childhood diseases decreased 90% between 1850 and 1940, paralleling improved sanitation and hygienic practices, well before mandatory vaccination programs. The Medical Sentinel recently reported, “from 1911 to 1935, the four leading causes of childhood deaths from infectious diseases in the U.S. were diphtheria, pertussis, scarlet fever, and measles. However, by 1945 the combined death rates from these causes had declined by 95 percent, before the implementation of mass immunization programs.”
 It is important to understand that the polio vaccine was not universally accepted, at least initially. Despite this, polio declined both in European countries that refused mass vaccination as well as in those that employed it.
-“Thus vaccination DOES NOT account for the impressive declines in mortality seen in the first half of the century”

The CDC even reported a measles outbreak in a documented 100% vaccinated population. A study examining this phenomenon concluded, “The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.” A more recent study found that measles vaccination “produces immune suppression which contributes to an increased susceptibility to other infections.” These studies suggest that the goal of complete “immunization” may actually be counter-productive, a notion underscored by instances in which epidemics followed complete immunization of entire countries. Japan experienced yearly increases in small pox following the introduction of compulsory vaccines in 1872. By 1892, there were 29,979 deaths, and all had been vaccinated. In the early 1900’s, the Philippines experienced their worst smallpox epidemic ever after 8 million people received 24.5 million vaccine doses

Are these dieseases deadly?
CDC statistics for pertussis during 1992-94 indicate a 99.8% recovery rate. In fact, when hundreds of pertussis cases occurred in Ohio and Chicago in the fall 1993 outbreak, an infectious disease expert from Cincinnati Children's Hospital said, “The disease was very mild, no one died, and no one went to the intensive care unit.”
Also, consider that in 1963, the population was 189,241,798. That means that prior to the vaccine, the percentage of the entire US population that died from measles was .000237%.
.000237% is a very small number.  What this means is that prior to the availability of the measles vaccine in the U.S., between 2 and 3 people out of every ONE MILLION U.S. citizens died from measles complications
- There was a death of a six month old from pertussis in February 2014 and that was the first case of a death since 2010. In comparison to these numbers are some other statistics. Every year, in the United States, there are over 1,000 children who die from drowning and almost 7,000 who die in motor vehicle accidents. If we look at all ages, each year there are over 10 million motor vehicle accidents and over 30,000 fatalities or 11 deaths per 100,000 population. If we are so concerned about the well being of children, why are there no calls for the outlawing of swimming pools and motor vehicles?
-According to the CDC the greatest reported complication is loose stool with measles.
Measles Complications Conditions Diarrhea - 8% reported
Otitis media - 7% reported
Pneumonia - 6% reported
Encephalitis - 0.1% reported
Seizures - 0.6-0.7% reported
Death - 0.2% reported

The measles mortality rate had already dropped by over 98% before the vaccine was even introduced.
Thanks to better nutrition and hygiene, the death rate was LESS THAN 1 in 100,000 before the measles vaccine came out.

-Rubella, also called German measles or three-day measles, is a contagious viral infection best known by its distinctive red rash.
Rubella is not the same as measles (rubeola), though the two illnesses do share some characteristics, including the red rash. However, rubella is caused by a different virus than measles and is neither as infectious nor usually as severe as measles.
The signs and symptoms of rubella are often so mild that they're difficult to notice

Hepatitis B (no need for newborns to get this)
It is not a killer disease for most people.
Symptoms of Hepatitis B infection include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, low grade fever, pain and swelling in joints, headache and cough that may occur one to two weeks before the onset of jaundice (yellowing of the skin) and enlargement and tenderness of the liver, which can last for three to four weeks


Hep A (No need for newborns to get this)
In the prevaccine era, hepatitis A caused about 100 deaths per year in the United States. The case-fatality rate among persons of all ages with reported cases was approximately 0.3%. No specific treatment exists for hepatitis A. Your body will clear the hepatitis A virus on its own. In most cases of hepatitis A, the liver heals completely in a month or two with no lasting damage
A person is at increased risk of hepatitis A if they:
-Travel or work in regions with high rates of hepatitis A
-Are a man who has sexual contact with other men (10% of cases)
-Are HIV positive
-Use injected or noninjected illicit drugs (6% of cases)
-Live with another person who has hepatitis A (14% of cases)

HPV
-HPV infection is common, occuring in 1 out of 5 women. 90% of HPV cases will resolve within 1-3 year without any intervention, less than 8% of HPV cases will screen positive for cervical dysplasia.  According to published data (2010 Discovery Medicine Journal), HPV vaccine efficacy must last at least 15 years to contribute to the prevention of cervical cancers. At the current time, protection against is at best 5-8 years. If your daughter receives an HPV vaccine at the recommended age of 11, protection will have waned by age 16.
The data collected from the above agency confirms approximately 0.0% deaths from cervical cancer under age 20.
You may find yourself asking if it is even appropriate to risk any adverse effects to a  preadolescent girl for a vaccine that is (1) only theoretically proven to prevent a disease that (2) she only has a 0.66% risk of developing over her lifetime – WHEN THE SAME CAN BE PREVENTED WITH REGULAR PAP SCREENING
- VAERS
Another point worth addressing regarding safety is the adverse events reported after vaccination to various governments worldwide.
 Since 2006, nearly 65% of all deaths and life-threatening reactions reported to VAERS from Gardasil or Cervarix alone. A total of 30,020 reports have been received by US VAERS including 2,574 hospitalizations, 9,114 ER visits 93 deaths.
82% of cases resulting in permanent disability in females under 30 years of age was attributed to HPV vaccines. To date, there is no data confirming HPV vaccines preventing or treating any cervical cancers. The large majority of HPV infection (and a great proportion of Cervical dysplasia) clear spontaneously without medical intervention
