In my last post I forgot an important piece of information from the scientific looking report.
Since the introduction of DTP and OPV apparently was associated with increased mortality, we examined what happened to infant mortality from 3 to 12 months of age after the introduction of these vaccines. The mortality rate for all 3–11 months old children increased 2-fold (HR = 2.12 (1.07–4.19)) from 1980, before vaccinations, to 1982–1983, after the introduction of DTP and OPV (Table 4).
In 1980, before the introduction of the vaccines, the Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) for children aged 3-11 months was 4.7. The DTP and OPV vaccines were offered to children of 3 months and older in Guinea-Bissau since June 1981.
In 1981, the IMR jumped to 7.2;
1982 – 8.0;
1983 – 12.1 per 1000.
All-cause infant mortality more than doubled (2.12).
Viera Scheibner (real name - Viera Scheibnerova) has written some articles against vaccines, including on the DTP vaccines that – according to her - caused infant mortality in Japan from 1970 to 1974.
In my opinion, the pieces by Scheibner on vaccines aren’t “scientific” enough, but for most people that would probably make them easier to read. What I find problematic is that she only points to “vaccines” as the cause, but seems to ignore the lack of proper placebo controlled trials. Because no trials with placebo for controls are done, in many cases it’s impossible to be certain that vaccines are the cause.
After DTP vaccination was introduced to Japan routinely at 3 to 5 months of age, between 1970 and 1974 - 37 infant deaths and 57 severe adverse reactions occurred (9.5 severe reactions and 6.1 deaths per year).
As a result, Japan first stopped DTP vaccination for 2 months in 1975, and then resumed vaccinations at an age of 2 years. From 1975 to 1980, there were only 3 deaths and 8 severe adverse reactions (1.6 severe reactions and 0.5 deaths per year).
Japan went from 17th to first place lowest infant mortality in the world.
Cherry et al. (1988) concluded that vaccination when the infant was older, 2 years, reduced the incidence of severe vaccine adverse events.
Noble et al. (1987) tried to “debunk” that DTP vaccine is associated with higher infant mortality in Japan but had to admit:
It is difficult to exclude pertussis vaccines as a causal factor even when other etiologies are suggested, particularly when the adverse events occur in close temporal association with vaccination.
In 1988, Japanese parents could again start vaccinating their babies at 3 months of age, which caused the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) rate to more than quadrupel.
According to professor Hiroshi Nishida the SIDS rate for babies younger than 1 year had sharply increased from 0.07% in 1980 to 0.33% in 1992.
Noble et al. (1987) published the following graph that suggests that the higher pertussis vaccination rates from 1976 to 1979 caused a higher incidence of whooping cough. Although possibly big pharma supporting “scientists” can invent other explanations...
It also seems difficult to explain for vaccine supporters that in 1984 with a higher vaccination rate there was more whooping cough than at the end of the 1960s in Japan!
Because brain damage caused by vaccines were reported, in July 1975 many parents in England stopped vaccinating their children: vaccination rates fell down to 30% or even lower.
McFarlane (1982) documented the lower mortality rates:
The postneonatal mortality fell markedly in 1976, the year in which a sharp decline in perinatal mortality rate began. Between 1976 and 1979, however, neither the late nor the postneonatal mortality rates fell any further. Indeed, the postneonatal mortality rate increased, slightly among babies born in 1977.
Fine and Clarkson (1982) were suprised that there wasn´t a higher incidence of whooping cough in this period of lower vaccination rates.
When the US mandated DTP vaccination in 1978, it resulted in a three-fold increase in the incidence of whooping cough, particularly in the well-vaccinated age group of 2 to 6 months (Hutchins et al. 1988).
When acellular vaccines were tested in the 1990s in Sweden, they expected 20 deaths but experienced 45 and also more adverse effects than anticipated (Olin et al. 1997).
There was also an epidemic of whooping cough at about 7 months into the trial, including in children who were given 3 shots, which made them stop the trial before the planned enddate (Olin 1995).
This suggests that the acellular pertussis vaccine causes whooping cough.
In trials, the pertussis vaccine is regularly used to induce encephalomyelitis in lab animals (Steinman et al. 1982). Isn’t it strange that when data suggests that DTP vaccines cause babies to die, our wonderful “scientists” are able to come up with other explanations and claim that the correlation to vaccines is only “coincidental”?
It’s sad to see that parents and other caretakers are blamed for the death of their children because of what is called the “Shaken Baby Syndrome”.
The vast majority of published studies only report on vaccine reactions up to 48 hours, which conveniently excludes about 90% of adverse reactions to vaccination: http://www.whale.to/vaccines/scheibner1.html
