The WHO certainly attributes its eradication to vaccination: http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/smallpox/en/I meant 10%, type error. The 10% is a fact.
If not vaccination, what then? "105" what of the world's population?
The WHO is run by the UN you know, and the drug companies fund it, just like the American FDA.
I'm sorry- I don't understand what you mean. Are you seriously arguing that the dramatic decrease in polio cases is not because of vaccination? I'm sorry if I'm misunderstanding you. It was due to human evolution. The 20% is a fact.
This is your area of expertise? You are an infectious disease specialist? If I'm wrong about vaccination, I would dearly love to see sources to the contrary. Nobody wants to walk around in error! And yet, I still have never seen a reputable study by infectious disease specialists that suggests vaccinating is unnecessary or ineffective. Perhaps you have?Nearly every professor whose specialty is that, that I have went into a deep discussion with.
You must understand the these scientists who posts these reports are typically funded by the organizations making the vaccines.
Please provide abstracts to peer reviewed publications in support of your claims regarding vaccination and infectious disease. Since all research in the scientific world is either government, foundation or corporate funded, I assume that you presume that any publication has a 'bias.' Never the less, the only generally accepted means to challenge the accepted status quo is to work within the framework of that system, publish your results and submit the same to peer review. Otherwise, we in the general public, at least those of us with the education and knowledge to review such material, will continue to walk around as ignorant Americans with our half formed gullible opinions implanted in us through our mass media indoctrination.
Now I will concede that there are real issues regarding the effects of genetic mutations through the use of the live vaccine methodology among a small percentage of the immunized population in the areas of the world where polio remains a threat and I will concede that on account of those risks inherent with the vaccine that WHO does not recommend polio vaccinations outside of those regions, but I refuse to accept any claim that it was not as a result of the Salk vaccine and its subsequent refinements that infantile poliomyelitis was for the most part eradicated from this planet over the past half century or so.
As to common diseases for which American chlldren are generally vaccinated against before beginning school, there are entirely different sets of issues and I believe that the generally accepted scientific consensus is that the miniscule risks of vaccination complication in the at risk population is acceptable given the alternative realities of devastating complications stemming from common diseases like hepatitis A and B, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, chickenpox, whooping cough or pertussis, diphtheria and bacterial meningitis. Again, if there are any generally accepted, peer reviewed publications to the contrary, feel free to share.
