“Compulsory vaccination which once had the suffrage of the nation has now hardly a serious supporter. We are ashamed to jettison the idea completely and perhaps afraid that if we did the accident of some future epidemic might put us in the wrong. We prefer to let compulsory vaccination die a natural death and are relieved that the general public is not curious enough to demand an inquest. In the meantime our attention is diverted to other and new forms of immunisations.”
– [A] Charles Cyril Okell, “From a Bacteriological Back-Number,” The Lancet, January 1, 1938 pp 48-49
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDs) sometimes known as “cot death” has also come under the spotlight in relation to the widespread use of infant vaccinations. According to the US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, in characteristically dismissive form: “From 2 to 4 months old, babies begin their primary course of routine vaccinations. This is also the peak age for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The timing of these two events has led some people to believe they might be related. However, studies have concluded that vaccines are not a risk factor for SIDS.” 
It is highly logical that such a toxic cocktail administered at the same time as the incidence of SIDS is more than scientifically compelling. The studies mentioned are Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) data, studies that looked at the age distribution and seasonality of deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and The Institute of Medicine (IOM) report on Immunization Safety Review: Vaccination and Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy in 2003. All of these reports are heavily in the pocket of the vaccination lobby and Big Pharma and as such cannot be said to be independent. Indeed, the prevalence of ghost-writing medical papers is unknown but plenty of cases exist.  In reality, nobody really knows what papers are genuine and which are made up.
The IOM, who receives tens of millions of dollars from military government interests (including funds from the Department of Defence) the top five pharmaceutical companies and vaccination gurus such as Bill Gates who are in favour of reducing the world’s population by 15percent can hardly be said to be impartial. It gave further credence to its dependence on Big Pharma when it proclaimed there is no link from MMR and autism despite not interviewing one parent of an autistic child or conducting a medical review of any autistic children. The IOM did however; review thousands of vaccine papers published in conventional medical journals, the same medical journals that published the above studies. An important IOM report delivered in 2011 rolled out a review of the adverse reactions from vaccinations. It drew its information from medical journals and complied a summary of sound bites from over 12,000 outdated articles blithely taking them at face value.
Journals have been found to routinely engage in bribery, corruption, fraudulent science and the aforementioned ghost writing of fraudulent “scientific papers.” Despite the report admitting that vaccines do cause a veritable smorgasbord of adverse reactions; that it did not have accurate data; that it threw out all the data that covered long-term adverse effects; openly stating that MMR causes measles and that vaccines cause infectious disease – the mainstream media dutifully reported that vaccines are safe. 
Beyond the vested interests of promoting the no-link to SIDS side of the story there are numerous peer-reviewed studies that do find causal links. As if the MMR injection wasn’t enough, the “hexavalent”or “6-way” vaccine is now standard in the routine childhood vaccines, where six different pathogens are injected into the infant’s body. The net result is that: “By the simultaneous administration of multiple vaccines, especially live vaccines … it may cause an induced immune system to a persistence of a virus in the body without eliciting the vaccine an immune response. This virus can then possibly lead later to a chronic disease.” 
The complex nature of vaccines and SIDS was revealed by researchers who found serious oversights in pathology reports and forensic science where autopsies conducted on SIDS neglected to explore and evaluate the brainstem and cardiac conduction systems, leading to erroneous conclusions as to the true nature of vaccine-related death, “unexplained” being the most common conclusion.
One 2006 Italian study commented on the case of a 3-month-old female infant dying suddenly and unexpectedly shortly after being given a hexavalent vaccination: “This case offers a unique insight into the possible role of hexavalent vaccine in triggering a lethal outcome in a vulnerable baby. Any case of sudden unexpected death occurring prenatally and in infancy, especially soon after a vaccination, should always undergo a full necropsy study.” 
La vaccine or Le préjugé vaincu by Louis-Léopold Boilly, 1807 (wikipedia)
Indications that vaccinations play a major role in SIDS was the striking evidence from a 2011 Human & Experimental Toxicology paper which found that the nations with the highest number of vaccine doses in the developed world have the highest infant mortality rates.  Taking into account the underreporting of vaccine-related deaths, countries with the lowest infant mortality have the lowest number of infant vaccines. Japan and Sweden have the lowest number of infant vaccines prior to one year of age and have the lowest infant mortality rates in the developed world.  This finding was reinforced by 1992 publication of data in the American Journal of Epidemiology which found infant death to be eight times greater within 72 hours post vaccination. 
The Journal of the American Medical Association provided a study that showed children diagnosed with asthma were five times more likely than not to have received pertussis vaccine.  DPT (also DTP and DTwP) is a three-way vaccine against: diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus. A 1992 study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that babies die at a rate eight times greater than normal within three days after getting a DPT shot. The three primary doses of DPT are given at two months, four months, and six months. About 85 percent of SIDS cases occur at one through six months, with the peak incidence at age two to four months.  In the same year re-analysis studies on DPT from the Communicable Disease Epidemiological Unit in London revealed previously under-reported complications. “Their analysis of the British National Childhood Encephalopathy Study lead to a four-fold increase in the estimated risk of encephalopathy associated with DPT vaccinations.”  DPT: A Shot in the Dark (1985) by Coulter and Fisher book also provides compelling evidence that the safety and effectiveness is at best, questionable.
Dr. Viera Scheibner PhD conducted a 2004 study on SIDS in relation to episodes of apnea (cessation of breathing) and hypopnea (abnormally shallow breathing) which were measured before and after DPT vaccinations. The “Cotwatch” breathing monitor was used and computer data analysed according to “weighted apnea-hypopnea density”. Vaccination caused massive increases in episodes where respiration either nearly ceased or stopped completely continuing months after initial the vaccinations. For Scheibner the conclusion was clear: “vaccination is the single most prevalent and most preventable cause of infant deaths.” 
The relationship between vaccinations and SIDS needs urgent attention due to the probable miscarriages of justice in misdiagnosing Shaken Baby Syndrome and vaccine-related deaths. According to Scheibner: “… the vast majority occur after the administration of childhood vaccines and a minority of cases are due to documented birth injuries and pre-eclamptic and eclamptic states of the mothers… Evidence that vaccines cause brain and retinal haemorrhages and increased fragility of bones, has been published in refereed medical journals.” 
In 2010, outbreaks of B. pertussis whooping cough in California among both vaccinated and unvaccinated children and adults confirmed the data that the majority of cases were actually from those who had been previously vaccinated. Which suggests that evidence that the bacterial organism that causes the disease is becoming vaccine resistant and thus offers another reason why there is a rise in cases of B. pertussis whooping cough.
An April 3rd 2012 report: ‘Whooping cough vaccine fades in pre-teens: study’ by Kerry Grens for Reuters included a study led by Dr. David Witt, an infectious disease specialist at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Rafael, California. The research also confirmed that cases of whooping cough are indeed higher among vaccinated children compared to those who have been vaccinated.
In Finland, 79 children aged between 4 – 19 developed narcolepsy after receiving the Pandemrix vaccine in 2009 and 2010. By 2011, the Finish government and medical insurance companies agreed to pay the life-time medical care the children will require after receiving the vaccine. Narcolesy, a chronic nervous system disorder which causes people to often uncontrollably fall asleep surfaced once again 14 months later in another 800 European children after being immunized with the same.  Glaxo-Smith Kline’s Chief medical officer at their in house vaccines division was wheeled on for damage limitation despite stating there was “…not enough data or evidence to suggest a causal link.” When in fact that’s all the data suggested.
Another Reuters report included comments from one of the leading experts on narcolepsy, Stanford University’s Emmanuel Mignot, who had this to say on the evidence: “There’s no doubt in my mind whatsoever that Pandemrix increased the occurrence of narcolepsy onset in children in some countries – and probably in most countries.” 
The modern hold of Big Pharma and the vaccination cartel still continues to exact a tenacious hold on the health of global populations. The MMR vaccine, the possible links to the rise in autism and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDs) will continue to place the role of vaccination programs under the spotlight of concern. Indeed, the legacy of vaccination science and the medical establishment in general was brought into sharp relief with the aforementioned article “Death by Medicine” which revealed that in the US:
- 2.2 million People experience in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs per year.
- 20 million unnecessary antibiotics are prescribed annually for viral infection
- 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed annually
- 8.9 million people are exposed to unnecessary hospitalization every year
Perhaps the most shocking finding was from this fully referenced reportwas the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is 783,936 per year. That is an astonishing 2147 people killed every day.  As writer PF Louis states: “Basic logic begs the question: Why do so many have to be vaccinated if those who are vaccinated are immune? Could it be that the vaccinated are not really immune? One thing is for certain, vaccinating 90 percent of all populations create more revenue.” 
Although vaccination revenue is certainly not the most profitable segment of net income for Big Pharma it is significant. It comes down to what can provide a quick, steady and reliable buck at great cost to a nation’s health and the medical integrity. So, let’s just keep in mind that in 1976, one person in the USA was killed by an outbreak of swine flu, but the vaccine introduced to combat it killed 25.  Rather than an exception to the rule, it may be far more common than we have been led to believe.
We’ll leave the last word to Dr. Robert Mendelsohn from his book: How To Raise A Healthy Child:
“The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization…There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease… There are significant risks associated with every immunization and numerous contraindications that make it dangerous for the shots to be given to your child…While the myriad short-term hazards of most immunizations are known (but rarely explained), no one knows the long-term consequences of injecting foreign proteins into the body of your child. Even more shocking is the fact that no one is making any structured effort to find out.”
