It may surprise you to know that about one-third of the four million babies born in the United States and Canada every year remain unvaccinated at age two. This failure to vaccinate, as it is termed by vaccination proponents, is largely due to concerned parents, who, after considerable personal research, consciously choose to forgo or change how their children receive medical vaccinations. (1)
Vaccinations have been used to fight infectious diseases since the early 1880s. It is believed that when the body is injected with a small amount of a germ or virus, this stimulates the bodys natural immune system to make antibodies against the germ/virus. The desired outcome is that any time in the future the body comes in contact with that particular germ/virus it will be recognized and destroyed by the antibodies formed from the vaccination given.
It is dangerously misleading, and indeed, the exact opposite of truth, to claim that a vaccine makes us immune or protects against disease. In fact, it only drives the disease deeper into the interior and causes us to harbor it chronically, with the result that our responses to it become progressively weaker and show less tendency to heal or restore themselves spontaneously. Richard Moshowitz, MD (2)
Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, a renown pediatrician, explains: There is a growing suspicion that immunization against relative harmless childhood diseases maybe responsible for the dramatic increase in autoimmune diseases since mass inoculations were introduced. These are fearful diseases such as cancer, leukemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrigs disease, lupus erythematosus, and the Guillain-Barre syndrome.
An autoimmune disease can be explained simply as one in which the bodys defense mechanisms cannot distinguish between foreign invaders and ordinary body tissues, with the consequence that the body begins to destroy itself. Have we traded mumps and measles for cancer and leukemia? (3)
The above statements are very similar to the message God left us: Christs remedies cleanse the system. But Satan has tempted man to introduce into the system that which weakens the human machinery, clogging and destroying the fine, beautiful arrangements of God. The drugs administered to the sick do not restore, but destroy. Drugs never cure. Instead they place in the system seeds which bear a very bitter harvest. (4)
Generally vaccinations are known as immunizations, inoculations or baby shots. If the American Academy of Pediatrics Vaccination Schedule is adhered to, thirty (30) of the recommended vaccines are administered before the age of two. Many of the vaccines are typically administered as vaccine cocktails meaning combined or together with other vaccines. The recommended vaccinations are Hepatitis B, Pneumococcal Conjugate, Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis (DTP), Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR), H. Influenzae type B (Hib), Varicella (Chickenpox), Inactivated Polio (IPV). (5)
The general public is essentially unaware of the true number of people who have been permanently damaged or killed by vaccines. In 1986, Congress (USA) officially acknowledged the reality of vaccine-caused injuries and death by creating and passing The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (Public Law 99-660). (6)
How Are Vaccines Made?
Vaccine production is a disgusting procedure. To begin, one must first acquire the disease germ a toxic bacterium or a live virus. To make a live vaccine, the live virus must be attenuated, or weakened for human use. This is accomplished by serial passage passing the virus through animal tissue several times to reduce its potency. For example, measles virus is passed through chick embryos, polio virus through monkey kidneys, and the rubella virus through human diploid cells the dissected organs of an aborted fetus! Killed vaccines are inactivated through heat, radiation, or chemicals.
The weakened germ must then be strengthened with adjuvants (antibody boosters) and stabilizers. This is done by adding drugs, antibiotics, and toxic disinfectants to the concoction: neomycin, streptomycin, sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum hydrochloride, sorbitol, hydrolized gelatin, formaldehyde, and thimerosal (a mercury derivative). [Pharmaceutical companies may use many other drugs and chemicals not listed here.]
Aluminum, formaldehyde, and mercury are extremely toxic substances with a long history of documented hazardous effects. Studies confirm again and again that microscopic doses of these substances can lead to cancer, neurological damage, and death. Yet each of them may be found in childhood vaccines.
In addition to the deliberately planned additives, unanticipated matter may contaminate the shots. For example, during serial passage of the virus through animal cells, animal RNA and DNA foreign genetic material is transferred from one host to another. Because this biological matter is injected directly into the body, researches say it can change our genetic makeup.
Undetected animal viruses may jump the species barrier as well. This is exactly what happened during the 1950s and 1960s when millions of people were infected with polio vaccines that were contaminated with the SV-40 virus undetected in the monkey organs used to prepare the vaccines. SV-40 (Simian Virus #40 the 40th such virus detected since researchers begin looking), is considered a powerful immunosuppressor and trigger for HIV, the name given for the AIDS virus. It is said to cause a clinical condition similar to AIDS, and has been found in brain tumors, leukemia, and other human cancers as well. (7)
Long Term Effects
Scientists and other researchers have uncovered a link between smallpox vaccine and AIDS. According to Dr. Robert Gallo, the chief AIDS researcher are the National Cancer Institute, the use of live vaccines such as that used for smallpox can activate a dormant infection such as HIV. In fact, the greatest spread of HIV infection coincides with the most intense and recent smallpox vaccination campaigns. Information on the seven Central African countries most infected with AIDS Zaire, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawai, Ruandi, and Burundi precisely matches WHO figures indicating the number of people vaccinated. Brazil, the only South American country included in the smallpox campaign, has the greatest incidence of AIDS on that continent. (8)
My concern about vaccinations goes far beyond infancy because the contents of the vaccine can lie dormant in the body for years, appearing at some later time as autoimmune diseases. Presently researchers are developing new vaccines to treat over 200 diseases, including cancer, diabetes, Lymes disease, West Nile Virus, and SARS, to name a few.
After a smallpox campaign was started in January 2003 (USA), it was abandoned due to serious side effects. Remember all manufacturers of vaccines use drugs and toxic chemicals to produce mass amounts and to maintain shelf life. Vaccine production using animal tissue places not only drugs and toxic chemicals into the human body, but also the animals foreign DNA/RNA. This foreign material or provirus attaches itself to cells and the body doesnt recognize them as self. The body begins to fight against the foreign material. Immediately or years later, the cells and organs break down, developing various autoimmune diseases.
Biologist Simon Cutting of the Royal Holloway University of London has transformed bacterial spores into an edible vaccine. . . . Cutting plans to start clinical trials in about two years. Engineered bacterial spores could be eaten or inhaled as a vaccines. (9) Many leading researchers recognize that vaccinations can alter our genetic makeup. What further damage will occur with engineered bacterial spores, what bitter harvest will be reaped?
Do not be fooled that dead viruses are safer. They first must be alive and go through the same process as stated above, and then be inactivated or killed by heat, radiation, or chemicals, which could possibly make them more deadly to the human body.
Proverbs 14:12 warns us that, There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. As Christians, we must come to a fuller understanding of Pauls proclamation in 1 Corinthians 6:19: Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. . . . We must awake and give God our reasonable service (Romans 12:1). When the Lord requires us to be distinct and peculiar, how can we crave popularity or seek to imitate the customs and practices of the world? (10)
Research indicates that the immature immune system of a baby is stimulated, strengthened, and matured by responding to natural challenges. When the infant gains exposure to viral and bacterial microorganisms in the environment, normal development of the immune system is likely to occur. (11)
According to Volume 2 of World Health Statistics Annual, . . . It appears that generally improved conditions of sanitation are largely responsible for preventing infectious diseases. . . . Even the World Health Organization has conceded that the best vaccine against common infectious diseases is an adequate diet. (12)
I encourage you to listen to the presentation, Are Drugs Ever Necessary? by Diane Herbert, ND. This will give you a better understanding of natural health vs. drug usage. (13)

Vaccinations are recommended, but many institutions will use the word mandatory. The current laws do allow for religious exemptions even from school, military, and international travel related immunizations. Please read The Vaccinations Crisis, by Vance Ferrell, for detailed information on exemptions, and check the current laws on vaccinations, as laws do and will change (see Dan. 7:25).
Yes, many are saying, No, to vaccinations because they have deadly side effects and plant seeds within the body that are harvested as bitter diseases. Statistical charts show that vaccinations do not decrease disease, but often increase it instead.
God has provided all that we need to take care of ourselves and our love ones, by following the Eight Natural Health Laws: Pure air, sunlight, abstemiousness, rest, exercise, proper diet, the use of water, trust in divine power--these are the true remedies. Every person should have a knowledge of nature's remedial agencies and how to apply them. (14)
