SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
A letter from Dr. Viera Scheibner
Dear Miss Pinkerton, Your name as a contact appears on the information flyer in relation to Hearing on Safety of Hepatitis B vaccine held on May18, 1999 at 2247 Rayburn House Office Building? As my letterhead says, I am a Principal Research Scientist (Retired) and since1986, I have been involved in the study of vaccination and SIDS (Cot death) in Australia. The starting point was longitudinal recording of breathing of babies with computerised Cotwatch Breathing Monitor invented by my late husband, Leif Karlsson, who was a Swedish electronics engineer resident in Australia.
Fortuitously, while recording breathing of a number of babies, many of them were vaccinated and we could see within one hour the effect of vaccination on the stress level in breathing on our computer printouts. This started me off to initiate a thorough research of vaccination issues as published in referenced medical journals of the likes of the Lancet, British Medical Journal, New England Journal of Medicine etc. and resulted in the documentation of the causal link between administration of a great variety of vaccines and serious reactions including permanent brain damage and death. Indeed, vaccination is the single biggest cause of SIDS.
There is another aspect to problems with vaccination: contrary to what you may have heard even from some of those who are calling for the discontinuation of mandatory vaccination in the United States, vaccines do not prevent diseases. The presumed and publicised "eradication" of diseases like smallpox and polio, or Hib meningitis is a myth not supported by even the staunchest pro-vaccinators' research. Smallpox was on the way out, indeed epidemics disappeared decades before the WHO decided to conduct the final "eradication" campaign.
It is also well-documented that the largest epidemics occurred in the most highly vaccinated populations, while whose who were unvaccinated, did not have the same epidemics. Smallpox still occurs, although on a much smaller scale, particularly in the countries suffering extreme conditions like wars or economic hardship in Africa, India and other parts of Asia (Nepal). The same factor which did away with bubonic plague, against which mass vaccinations have never been conducted, did away with smallpox, namely better nutrition --in reference to better Vitamin C status of populations in the Old and the New Worlds.
Polio has not been eradicated by vaccination, it is lurking behind a redefinition and new diagnostic names like viral or aseptic meningitis. When the first, injectable polio vaccine was tested on some 1.8 million children in the United States in 1954, within 9 days there was huge epidemic of paralytic polio in the vaccinated and some of their parents and other contacts. The US Surgeon General discontinued the trial for 2 weeks.
The vaccinators then put their heads together and came back with a new definition of poliomyelitis. The old, classical, definition: a disease with residual paralysis which resolves within 60 days has been changed to a disease with residual paralysis which persists for more than 60 days. Knowing the reality of polio disease, this nifty but dishonest administrative move excluded more than 90% of polio cases from the definition of polio.
Ever since then, when a polio-vaccinated person gets polio, it will not be diagnosed as polio, it will be diagnosed as viral or aseptic meningitis. According to one of the 1997 issues of the MMWR, there are some 30,000 to 50,000 cases of viral meningitis per year in the United States alone. That's where all those 30,000 - 50,000 cases of polio disappeared after the introduction of mass vaccination. One must also be aware that polio is a man-made disease since those well-publicized outbreaks are misrepresented that those huge outbreaks were causally linked to intensified diphtheria and other vaccinations at the relevant time.
They even have a name for it: provocation poliomyelitis. JAMA (1993) published that the fall in the incidence of Hib meningitis occurred in the age group below the age of one year at the time when none of the Hib vaccines were even licensed for that age group. The recent outbreaks of meningitis in the US College students can be clearly linked to the enforced MMR vaccination as a condition for enrolment to Colleges in the U.S. The incidence of whooping cough increased three fold after 1978, which was the time when individual U.S. states started mandating vaccination as the enclosed pages from Hutchins et al. (1988) show. One does not have to be a rocket scientist to see this from the article.
Unfortunately, one merely has to be a medical doctor not to understand their own data. Medicine developed a special kind of absurd reasoning, like the causal link between vaccination and the observed reactions has never been demonstrated, without defining just what exactly they would consider to constitute the evidence of the causal link and while publishing raw data which clearly shows the causal link between vaccination and the documented increased occurrence of diseases. JAMA in 1992 published that the incidence of whooping cough as based on hospital admission is up to 126,000 per year in the U.S. This is well and truly the pre-vaccine level.
When they were testing the ascellular whooping cough vaccine in Sweden, as soon as the test babies were given 3 doses of the trial vaccine (meaning they were fully vaccinated) they had a huge epidemic of whooping cough in the fully vaccinated. They discontinued the trial before the targeted time of 2 years. I also need to add, that practically all Swedish children below the age of 1 year participated in the trial.
They expected 20 deaths and observed 45 (pus one accidental death) and yet this very significant increase was glossed over by saying that all deaths were judged unrelated to vaccination, even though there were deaths there within 24 hours or a few days. Vaccinators failed to eradicate measles, so now they claim success in reducing measles incidence between 1970 and 1987. However, it has been published that the very unvaccinated Amish communities did not report a single case of measles between 1970 and 1987.
Then, since 1987, both the unvaccinated Amish and the well vaccinated outside communities started experiencing huge outbreaks of measles. Quite obviously, vaccination was totally irrelevant. Quite likely, the sustained small outbreaks of measles between 1970-87 in the vaccinated was achieved by vaccination, which kept measles occurring. Indeed, measles and whooping cough epidemics in the U.S. and elsewhere occur mainly in the fully vaccinated populations. Instead of honestly admitting that vaccination failed, the vaccinators resorted to outrageous lies and misrepresentations.
The worst desperado is the Shaken Baby Syndrome. I enclose my own paper on the subject, emphasizing that all those retinal haemorrhages and detachments which are considered as a fool-proof evidence of trauma (like shaking the babies by their parents or nannies) can and are caused by vaccination, as the enclosed Lancet and other papers show. [article is in our member packet...] Indeed, we don't need any more research; everything we ought to know to realise that vaccines do not prevent diseases and that they are indeed causally implicated in causing diseases and very serious reactions, has already been published.
I am sending you my book Vaccination which is based solely on the study of medical literature. [available to members from our lending library...] Knowing all this, I reached an inevitable conclusion that we don't need any vaccines at all. There is only one immunity, natural immunity, which is achieved by going through the infectious diseases of childhood. No children at this age should die from any of these diseases: if they do, it is due to medical mismanagement, As I pointed it out at the seminars on dangers of vaccination organised by the Royal Australia College of GP's (the postgraduate training program for GP's), to which I was invited to present the case against vaccination, if doctors administer antibiotics to a child with measles, they are asking for trouble. Antibiotics, another sordid chapter in the medical assault on the immune system, knock out the gut flora, suppress the immune system and cause serious side effects while the affected children are going though infectious diseases.
You may be told by some groups warning about side effects of vaccination that I am radical. Not only do I consider this highly defamatory, but also very unwise and illogical: is it radical knowing what I know (which includes ample published evidence that vaccines to not provide any benefit, because they do not protect against infectious diseases, and that reactions are very prevalent, affecting practically all vaccinated children to a lesser or greater degree) and therefore be against all vaccinations?
Is it reasonable whilst knowing that one in about 270 children in California suffer autism, that one in 250 U.S. children suffers some form of serious behavioural and learning disability, not withstanding that one in 500 children develop leukaemia and cancer which are also caused by vaccination and knowing that infectious diseases are beneficial for children by priming and maturing the immune system and representing developmental milestones and still be looking for better vaccines?
There is no such thing as a better vaccine: the introduction of the pathogen (and many other contaminating agents and toxic substances) is not going to result in immunity. Officially, the immunological research has been demonstrating since the turn of this century that vaccine injections do not immunize: they sensitise, make the recipients more susceptible to diseases which the vaccine is supposed to prevent, but also to a host of unrelated bacterial and viral infections. Vaccinated children suffer a never ending stream of ear infections, which in the U.S. alone cost some 3 billion dollars per year.
A young Australian lady, living in England, organized one of my many seminars there and told me that her father told her "go to Viera's seminars and do not vaccinate your children. All those ear infections, and problems like glue ear, are caused by vaccination". When I asked her who is her father, she said "he is an ENT specialist in Brisbane, Australia". I also asked her whether he tells other parents to do the same thing. This is not a singular example of the dishonesty of the vaccination system that they are afraid to take their own medicine.
The Medical Observer in Australia published my response to an attack by a fanatical pro-vaccinator in which I challenged him to go on television, allow himself to be injected with the baby vaccines adjusted to his body weight by a doctor of my choice and in my presence (the article is enclosed). We haven't heard from him. I think that this is a reasonable request to be issued to all vaccinators. And let's just watch the horror in their eyes. I think that I outlined to you some of the essential facts about vaccination.
Mandatory vaccination in the USA is indeed an arrogant insult to the American Constitution, freedom of choice and to just plain human decency and represents medical tyranny. It must be discontinued if the U.S. wants to continue claiming to be the guarantor of freedom for all and from all forms of tyranny. Charity starts at home.
