Vaccines and Infant Mortality

Angry babyBy Dr. William H. Gaunt Millers Review

There is a very interesting relationship between the number of vaccines required by various countries in the first year of life and the infant mortality rate in those countries. Infant Mortality Rate[IMR] is the number of infants per 1000 live births that die before reaching their first birthday. Thanks to Neil Z. Miller for allowing me to use information from his September 2011 scientific study in Human & Environmental Toxicology. His new book (Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies) is a must have for people seeking information about vaccines. He summarizes 400 scientific studies related to vaccines and the information is fascinating.

 

Have a look at tables 1 and 2. You can see that the United States requires more vaccines in the first year of life than any other country yet has the highest IMR of all developed countries. We require more than twice as many vaccines as Sweden, Japan, Iceland, Norway, and Denmark yet our IMR is much higher than those countries.  Many factors can impact IMR but the number of vaccines in the first year of life appears to be an important factor.

Next is a graph showing infant mortality on the vertical axis and number of vaccines on the horizontal axis. Our science and math teachers and professors have attempted to teach us how to grasp the information presented in a chart or graph. Take a good look at this one and summarize in one sentence the relationship of the number of vaccines in the first year of life and the infant mortality rate. The trend becomes obvious when the data for countries is arranged as seen in the graph. Don’t peak at the next paragraph until you figure out this relationship for yourself.

Graph: Infant Mortality Rate versus number of vaccines in first year of life

You probably came up with something like this: The more vaccine doses required in the first year of life, the higher the infant mortality rate. This is not a surprising conclusion to regular readers of ageofautism.com but I believe that it would be counterintuitive to most of the general public.

This trend of more vaccines and higher IMR implies that vaccines can and do cause infant deaths. When an infant death occurs shortly after a round of vaccines, the typical medical response is denial of any connection yet some of the studies in Miller’s book show a sharply increased risk of infant death after receiving multiple vaccines. Again, no surprise to parents of vaccine injured or killed children but probably disconcerting to the general public.

My crystal ball is not very clear so I don’t know when the truth that vaccines are causing great harm will become clear to a critical mass of people. Vaccines are causing an international tragedy but the people who could do something to stop it can’t or won’t see it. This sad situation will eventually become common knowledge but so far the carnage continues. Sincere thanks to those who are dedicating their lives to getting this message out.

The root cause of this tragedy is greed. Vaccine company profits are prioritized ahead of the welfare of children. This has resulted in the capture of the CDC(Center for Disease Control and Prevention) by the vaccine companies. The CDC then funds fraudulent scientific studies which always exonerate vaccines.   Financial influence on politicians and mainstream media is another factor. Statements such as “vaccines don’t cause autism” or “vaccines don’t cause sudden infant deaths” are repeated with arrogant authority while referencing the fraudulent scientific studies mentioned above. Independent scientific studies which are not funded by the CDC tell an entirely different story but we are not likely to hear about those studies unless we actively search alternative media sources like Neil Z. Miller’s book or the National Vaccine Information Center “NVIC.org”. The book Vaccines 2.0 is another great resource that grades all 16 recommended vaccines individually.

The best approach for parents is to research this issue with an open mind then make their own informed decisions instead of blindly following the recommended vaccine schedule which benefits vaccine companies but not children.

Is that baby pictured at the top of this article thinking, "Who are you trying to kid? Why are you doing this to me? I'm just a baby."

Next, overlay adult longevity and we'll see that over-vaccination affects us all for diminished lifespan.

All longlived countries have low infant mortality: Singapore, Sweden & Japan for example.

There was another, seemingly overlooked, listing of adverse data in December 2002 when Pulse Magazine, the weekly newspaper of UK General Practitioners, published a report known as the Cumbria Study. It looked at 29,000 school age children in Cumbria, UK for medical outcomes in vaccinated children vs unvaccinated children. Not a huge number of unvaccinated kids that is true, but the study did look at 29,000 children in all. It didn't look at autism (why not? albeit it did look at several immune conditions) because perhaps what it might have found might have been disastrous. It looked at allergies, asthma, psoriasis, and eczema where it turned out that kids affected by these conditions were between ten and twenty two times more likely to have been vaccinated. Not 10% more or 22% more - multiples of - ten and twenty two. Not surprising it is very hard to find these days, but it can be found, take a look.

Dr. Gaunt, thank you. You say:

"The root cause of this tragedy is greed" ----" Statements such as 'vaccines don’t cause autism' or 'vaccines don’t cause sudden infant deaths' are repeated with arrogant authority."

My own perspective says there are more subjectively reasons (in addition to greed and arrogance) for the U.S. ongoing "tragedy."

1) Autocratic authority our Governmental Medical Authorities have vested themselves in, on top of their arrogance.

2) Personal reputations of evil people epitomized by NIAID's Anthony Fauci, his boss at NIH, Thomas Insel just stepped down from the IAAC, all top Officials at CDC, et al: These creatures idolize themselves, and listening to any of them at such at the just-held Congressional Hearing on ZIKA makes me literally nauseous as they claim they will save the day WITH VACCINES to defeat yet another contrived, phony Crisis.

3) Absolutely no accountability of such Evil Leaders, perfectly borne out by stonewalling of Dr. William Thompson with his revelations of the MMR Vaccine Study causing GREATLY INCREASED autism not only in black babies, but also caucasian babies. Has ANY health official EVER been held accountable for their willingly ignoring CLEARLY OBVIOUS LETHAL BLUNDERS?

@ Thomas, you are absolutely right that quite a few other vaccines and injections should be listed, for instance the DTap to the mother, the HepB Immunoglobulin injected with the HepB shot at birth, the Vitamin K shot at birth, the Rhogam shot to a percentage of women. ALL of these shots in addition to their inherent toxicities cannot help but also have an unknown degree of toxic "contaminants", contaminants that can never be tested for until too late (and almost never then).

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" A perfect description of our American Government Medical Leaders - of course to a great degree associated with money and greed.

Not surprising!

The graph is not there but can be seen if you google "Neil Z. Miller vaccines and infant mortality". That will bring up the study mentioned in the first paragraph.

I agree that prenatal vaccine requirements are a huge problem.

"The root cause of this tragedy is greed. Vaccine company profits are prioritized ahead of the welfare of children."

I would agree that greed is most likely responsible for "prioritizing the profits of vaccine companies" over the welfare of children .. however .. I am not certain that is the ONLY motive of the "wide-ranging stakeholders" who "can't or won't" acknowledge that "vaccines are causing an international tragedy".

Indeed, there are many "stakeholders" whose highest priority is "population control" .. not vaccine profits .. and .. those "population control stakeholders" do not view rising infant mortality rates necessarily an "international tragedy".

Just watched an old movie .. "Charlie Wilson's War" .. starring Tom Hanks .. about the Soviet Union's invasion and brutal occupation of Afghanistan .. wherein one character explains why the Soviets were dropping what "looked like toys" but exploded when touched by children ..

"They had decided it was far better to maim and injure the children rather than kill them .. because .. the child's parents would then have to care for the child instead of joining the fight against the occupation forces".

Sickening that ANYONE could be so callous .. but .. we delude ourselves if we believe such "callous disregard" for the lives of our children .. does not exist.

Anita Donnelly

I bet if they would just stop vaccinating preemies at all until age 6 months then space them the IMR would drop drastically. This one is such a no brainier. But watch for this argument "infant mortality goes up because we attempt to save younger preemies" then let's compare by gestation and I am sure we will still be far higher IMR .

Thomas

Your data needs to include the prenatal vaccine requirements.
