DID YOU KNOW…
That long before Dr. Wakefield… (who by the way was NEVER anti-vaccine.)
One of the greatest doctors of ANY generation called vaccines… “A grotesque superstition”
That once there was a great organization called, “National Anti-Vaccination League” where the ‘Medical Industrial Complex’ had to use a famous TV show to lie about the founder’s death in order to discredit her and start and urban legend that she died from smallpox?
That many reputable doctors and scientists called out those ‘creating disinformation’ on the effectiveness of the smallpox vaccines DURING THE SAME ERA it was ‘supposed’ to have happened? That the same smallpox disinformation put out at that time is what’s taught in our modern medical textbooks as ‘gospel’ to claim vaccine’s victory over smallpox.
‘The Vaccine Controversy’ was written in 1964 and is a great book for resource material from medical professionals who stood up and took on the medical industrial complex’s holiest of grails, vaccines, in it’s earliest years.
The one thing this author and the great people in the medical profession at the time did NOT realize was, even though there is great money in vaccines and it is certainly the ‘fuel’ for which it runs on, the people in high places who insist vaccines be treated with kid gloves like no other drug HAVE ENOUGH MONEY. Vaccines are #1, about control. POPULATION CONTROL!

The vaccination controversy
ALTHOUGH, IN THIS short history of medical protection-selling, we must confine ourselves mainly to its present and maybe future aspects, it would be ungrateful not to remember those great fighters in the past, especially the medical men, including public vaccinators of long experience, who studied the subject honestly, saw right through it and bravely told the truth about the whole repulsive racket, often at great cost to themselves, They began doing this more than a century ago.
Who can dispute the opinion that Dr. Charles Creighton was the greatest of these doctors? His History of Epidemics in Britain, in two volumes, 1891 and 1894, was justly called “the greatest medical work ever written by one man”. Having previously written for the Encycloptedia Britannica, he was asked to contribute the article on vaccination for the Ninth Edition. Its appearance, in 1888, was such a profound shock to the advocates of, and vested interests concerned in, vaccination that Creighton’s article was replaced as soon as possible by what was little more than an advertisement for glycerinated calf lymph written by one of its promoters. Creighton, perhaps the greatest medical mind of the last century, was virtually turned out of his profession.
The fact that such a disgraceful thing was ever allowed to happen appears to have been taken as a precedent, which has been religiously followed by most publishers ever since. Vaccination is big-money business; so is the publication of school text-books. No medical text-book telling the truth about the vaccine industry would ever reach the printers.
In addition to those previously mentioned, who had a lot to lose and little to gain by denouncing the fraud of vaccination, there were many others who were scandalised by it; for example, Alfred Russel Wallace wrote a lot against it and said that he considered this work the most important that he ever did, in spite of his writings on natural selection.
William White wrote a very good book, The Story of a Great Delusion, 1885, the first of the larger works exposing Jenner, but, unfortunately, he made one error in misinterpreting some of Dr. Farr’s statistics; this error is all that a medical student is required to know about the contents of this book of over 600 pages.
Creighton may have been too irritated by Jenner’s style of writing to be quite fair to his essay on the cuckoo, submitted to the Royal Society, but he expressly disclaimed being a naturalist himself; after all, the only important thing about Jenner’s cuckoo, “the bird that laid the vaccination egg”, was that it got Jenner an F.R.S. Apparently, the Royal Society failed to notice that it was the cuckoo that was the genius, and not Jenner. Where Jenner obtained his information about the cuckoo is of no importance whatever, but even the recent big book, Smallpox, by Prof. C. W. Dixon, has to seize the opportunity to justify Jenner’s paper and to dismiss Creighton as an “armchair critic”. Prof. Dixon even calls him a “syphilophobe”. The excuse for implying that he was morbidly afraid of syphilis is presumably that, in his small book, Cowpox and Vaccinal Syphilis, he tried to explain to doctors certain outbreaks of supposed syphilis in recently vaccinated groups of children. His theory was that the trouble had been caused by taking the lymph too late, which, in a series of arm-to-arm vaccinations, had allowed the cowpox to revert to its original virulence, the affinity of cowpox being to the great pox rather than to the smallpox.
Considering that almost nothing has been published about the real nature of cowpox, we may indeed wonder why it is that modern medical dictionaries tell us quite dogmatically that it is “a virus disease of cattle”. Is this definition really true or is it just commercially convenient? Also, what has become of the bacillus of smallpox and also that of influenza, both quite real to Prof. W. M. Crofton? Are they brushed aside as mere minor inconveniences? In short, it is wiser to be sceptical about all opinions about bacteriology in the early part of this century, when little was really known and no one could distinguish between a virus particle and the filterable form of a bacillus. Creighton was obviously a skeptic to the end of his life. Prof. William Bulloch, after Creighton’s death, said, “He was the most learned man I ever knew.” He could speak six or seven European languages fluently and could read many more. Was this all for fun? Did he go to India in a Sedan chair to study leprosy and plague?
