Do you know about these vaccine scandals throughout history?

Vaccine scandals

(NaturalNews) The general consensus among most medical professionals today is that vaccines have been fully vetted as a safe and effective means of preventing communicable disease. Science has definitively shown, we're constantly told, that vaccines work as claimed, and that any concerns or information to the contrary amount to paranoia or quackery, as supposedly evidenced by many decades' worth of their successful use.

But what the general public isn't being told about are the many instances in history where vaccines didn't exactly live up to all the hype – or worse, where their introduction and use were based on outright fraud. Here are a few noteworthy examples:

Edward Jenner, the con artist

The late Edward Jenner is credited as being one of the earliest pioneers of vaccinology. But the history books show that he was actually a con man who forged his own medical license and academic qualifications to capitalize on an old English superstition known as the "cow-pox legend," which basically contended that if a person contracted cow-pox, he or she wouldn't develop smallpox.

Jenner purchased a fake medical degree and used these fraudulent credentials to introduce the world's first vaccine for smallpox, which didn't work and actually killed his firstborn son. But through crafty political weaving and trickery, Jenner would go on to conduct further experiments with the blessing of the English government, paving the way for the litany of vaccines we see on the market today that are regarded as being scientifically sound.

Jenner's role in creating what we now know to be the science of vaccines was so sketchy that Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, A.M.M., M.B.B.S., Ph.D., F.A.P.M., declared the entire vaccine business to be a "gigantic hoax," adding that proper statistics and science show that vaccines are, in fact, not useful in the prevention of infectious disease.

The smallpox vaccine was worse than smallpox itself

Most people don't know the story of Edward Jenner, and likely have never even heard of him. But they do know about smallpox, which was supposedly eradicated thanks to the vaccine that was developed as a result of his work. But this vaccine, contrary to popular belief, wasn't everything that it was cracked up to be.

Looking at the statistics from the beginning of the 20th century in England and beyond, it becomes clear that the smallpox vaccine often caused more harm than good. Many people suffered vaccine-induced deaths, and in multiple instances, major outbreaks of smallpox occurred within populations that had already been vaccinated for the disease.

One example of this was the 1831 smallpox outbreak in Wurtemberg, Germany, where nearly 1,000 vaccinated people developed smallpox. That same year, a similar smallpox outbreak occurred in 2,000 people living in Marseilles, France, all of whom had also been vaccinated for smallpox.

Despite these and other similar instances, England decided to legislate compulsory vaccination in 1854, which in 1859 led to a major smallpox epidemic in which 14,000 people died. In subsequent years, more than 100,000 lives were claimed by smallpox, despite widespread vaccination as mandated by the English government.

Improved sanitation, not vaccines, helped eradicate infectious disease

Much of this sordid history about the failure of the smallpox vaccine is kept under wraps, but it's there for the taking for those who wish to learn the truth. What's also available to the inquiring mind is data and historical accounts showing that the biggest contributing factor in the eradication of communicable disease was improved sanitation. Dr. Vernon Coleman stated it well regarding a smallpox outbreak that was averted in the city of Leicester during the late 19th century, when he said:

"Doctors and drug companies may not like it but the truth is that surveillance, quarantine and better living conditions got rid of smallpox – not the smallpox vaccine."
