The rates of chronic disease and neurological disabilities in children has increased worldwide and is increasing in Israel as well. For many families, doctors’ practices, and hospitals, seriously ill and developmentally disabled children have become a new normal, although it has never before been normal for children to be so profoundly ill in previous generations. Up until the early 1900s in the developed world, infectious diseases had been a predominant cause of illness and death in children. However, by the time vaccines came on the market, the rate of death from infectious diseases (including Scarlet Fever and Typhoid for which there were never vaccines) had already plummeted to almost imperceptible levels (see graph at right)1. For the five years before the measles vaccine was introduced, the average annual death rate in the US from measles was 432 2; other developed countries showed similar rates.
Today it is rare for children in Western countries to die from an infectious disease but it has become increasingly common for more and more children to develop debilitating chronic illnesses (including those that were previously associated with adults and aging), for which modern medicine can offer no real cures. Special education, special schools for autistic children, and myriad therapies and therapists are now considered necessity for a large portion of children and youth. Most of these children have more than one illness/disability and many of them will not have normal lives, by any stretch of the imagination; a large percentage will need continuous care through adulthood, will never hold down a job, and never marry. In fact, the current generation of children in the United States are expected, for the first time in modern history, to have a shorter life span than their parents.
While genetics and environmental toxins have been considered to be causes for this rise, one of the main (and increasing) source of toxins that our children are exposed to are vaccines. Vaccines contain many ingredients, besides the disease antigen for which the vaccine was developed, which are known to be harmful3: children’s vaccines have never been tested for mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, or impairment of fertility (per Section 13 of vaccine package inserts). This is all the more concerning because of the increase in the number of vaccines since 1986, when the US government removed legal responsibility for harm from vaccine manufacturers and anyone licensed to administer a vaccine4. This paved the way for vaccine manufacturers to increase exponentially the number of vaccines being produced for communicable and non-communicable infections; the handful of vaccines offered prior to the 1986 legislation quickly grew to the tens of vaccines now given to children on a regular basis. There are currently about 300 more vaccines being developed5.
Another important point to understand about vaccines is that they are “biologics”, not chemical drugs. They are made from microorganisms and mammalian cells. Whereas we can know everything that chemical drugs contain, biologics by their very nature, can contain particles, including viruses, about which we have no knowledge; even unidentifiable particles have been found in vaccines.6,7.
