Vaccine Science and Myth - A Conventionally Trained MD Speaks Out

Views 7505

Originally published on by Sarah Myhill, MB, BS

I am a conventionally trained medical doctor who was taught, during the 1970s, how vaccines were a vital protection against infectious disease and responsible for the massive reductions in infectious disease. I now believe the opposite - vaccines are driving many diseases of Westerners from autoimmunity and autism to allergy and arthritis. Why so? What is the history of this volte face?

My first wake up moment came from Dr. Andrew Wakefield in the early 1990s. I telephoned him at the request of a patient whose son developed autism a few weeks following his MMR vaccination. Despite being a busy paediatric gastroenterologist he gave me 30 minutes of his valuable time detailing a biologically plausible mechanism that could explain this clinical fact. Dr. Wakefield's original article can still be read, albeit with 'REDACTED' in large red letters written all over it.[1]

My second wake up came from Dr. Jayne Donegan. She was working as an NHS GP and in 2002 supported a single Mum who refused her two daughters to be vaccinated. The father objected and took mother to court. Jayne argued the case and won! Father reported her to the GMC where her views were dissected. Again, she was exonerated! She acted as her own expert witness and the essence of her defence was to go back to the original vaccine trial papers and present the original science. What she showed was that there was little or no scientific basis for vaccination. The decline in infectious disease could be entirely attributed to better nutrition and improved hygiene thanks to the clean water and sewerage systems built by Victorian engineers.[2],[3]

During the above decades I had learned that good diet and nutrition was all that children needed to protect themselves against acute febrile diseases of childhood. Acquiring measles, chickenpox, rubella, mumps and other such could be safely treated with vitamin C, zinc, iodine and other such effective treatments. This management not only conferred immunity for life but is protective against heart disease and cancer! As importantly those girls who would grow up into breast feeding mothers could protect their babies from acute febrile disease during their vulnerable early months of life because their breast milk was full of protective antibodies.

Hitherto I had not stumbled across any book that had gone through all these issues in a logical and scientific way until I read "Turtles all the way down - vaccine science and myth".[4] This should be compulsory reading for all health professionals and students of such.

This book "Turtles" has been written anonymously, initially in Hebrew in 2019, by doctors from Israel who dare not reveal their identity for fear of personal attack and professional sanction. They spell out the inconvenient truth that vaccines have never been properly tested and are not "safe and effective". Hitherto this mantra has never been challenged by any authority. The title of the book is explained by the following story from the 19th century:

An elderly woman approached a famous scientist shortly after he concluded his lecture on cosmology and the structure of the solar system.
"Your beautiful theory about the earth being round and rotating around the sun is very interesting young man. Unfortunately, it is also very wrong. I have a better theory" the woman told him".
"And what would that theory be Madam?" the scientist responded.
"Well, what you call planet earth is not round at all. Actually, it is kind of a large flat disc that rests on the shoulders of four giant elephants"
"And what do those four elephants stand on?" the scientists inquired.
"They stand on the back of a giant turtle" the elderly woman answered,
"And what does that turtle stand on?" the scientist asked with an inquisitive grin.
"On another bigger turtle"
"And what does the second turtle stand on?"
"Well, my dear man" said the elderly woman with victorious smile. "It's turtles all the way down".

For "elderly woman" read Big Pharma. Read the book to see how the science of vaccines is based on quicksand.

So, what is the basis on which Big Pharma relies to claim vaccines are "safe and effective"? What Dr. Jayne Donegan pointed out at her GMC trial is that Big Pharma used, and continues to use, control groups that are not control groups! They are given a similar vaccine! The "similar" vaccine is considered safe because that was tested against a previous "similar vaccine", which was tested against a previous "similar vaccine" ........which was NEVER tested against a salt and water placebo injection. These are the turtles all the way down.

Since both the active and the control groups receive vaccines, the side effects are similar and so the vaccine is declared safe.

The study that has never been scientifically done is that which addresses the question: are vaccinated children more healthy than unvaccinated children? However, there are some observational studies which suggest the vaccinated are less healthy.

Vaccinated vs unvaccinated observational studies


Few vaccines given

Many vaccines given


2004 Ruppin Academic Centre Israel Autism rates in Ethiopian children

Ethiopian children born in Ethiopia, Zero cases of autism

Ethiopian children born in Israel had Israeli autism rates of 190 cases per million

Ethiopian children born in Ethiopia have low vaccine rates

2005 Olmsted
Autism rates in the Amish[5],[6]

5 children with autism in a population of approx 87,000. An observational study showed 1 in 15,000. "autism is virtually absent in the Amish"

Rate of autism in USA 2005 was 9 per 1,000.[7] The rate of autism in 8-year-olds is now 1 in 36.[8] Autism prevalence is increasing exponentially. CDC recommends at least 50 vaccine shots to babies, children, and teenagers.[9]

The Amish do not vaccinate children because of safety concerns (not religious beliefs).

2008 Minnesota
Autism rates in Somali children
Similar findings in 2008 Sweden
Autism rates in Somali children

No case of autism in children born in Somalia

Somali children born in Minnesota had autism rates 34 times higher than national rates

It was suggested that vitamin D deficiency was a risk factor for autism following vaccination

Guinea-Bissau DPT and Polio vaccines: a natural experiment[10]


Between 3 and 5 months of age, children who received DTP and OPV early had 5-fold higher mortality than still unvaccinated children.

There was a window of time when no vaccines given, and this was compared to a window of time when children were vaccinated

These observational studies should have been further investigated. This never happened. Why? Follow the money.

Big Pharma uses statistical tricks used to whitewash data.

"There are lies, dammed lies and statistics" 
Mark Twain, who attributed the quote to British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli 

Big Pharma uses the disappearance of disease to support vaccine efficacy. It conveniently forgets that epidemiology may show a superficial correlation, but this DOES NOT demonstrate causation.

Disease rates fell substantially before vaccines were introduced thanks to clean water, hygienic sewerage disposal and fresh healthy food - see graph below.

TB, typhoid, scarlet fever, dysentery, cholera, whooping cough, measles, diphtheria all declined BEFORE antibiotics and BEFORE vaccines. Rubella, mumps, chickenpox only cause death in the malnourished and immunosuppressed.

Vaccines mean that we have swapped normal childhood diseases (harmless to the well-nourished child) for chronic lifelong disabilities.

The fact is that in the 1960s, 1.8% of American children had a chronic condition such as asthma, visual and hearing problems and mental issues.[11]

By 2008 this had risen to 43%. One in 7 children had asthma, one in 11 suffered ADHD and one in 5 were taking regular prescription medication.[12]

NOW "Over 1 in 2 kids today has a chronic illness". Dr. Elisa Song, a self-described "holistic pediatrician," wrote. "Our kids are getting sicker & sicker".[13]

Vaccines DO NOT always afford herd immunity.

Big Pharma would have us believe that through vaccination of the many, one can break the chain of infection transmission and thereby even protect the unvaccinated. There is no science to evidence base this. Indeed, the Warfel 2014 baboon study into pertussis shows the opposite.[14] Vaccination may protect from infection, but the infection is carried for longer than the unvaccinated. This would encourage spread of pertussis. This makes a nonsense of Big Pharma's advice to vaccinate all members of a new infant's family to protect the infant from infection This "cocooning" strategy increases the risk of infant infection.

Herd immunity cannot apply to vaccines which afford protection against bacterial endotoxins and so herd immunity cannot possibly occur with tetanus and diphtheria vaccines. The spread of diphtheria has been controlled by isolating sufferers and treating them with antibiotics.

Herd immunity is impossible to achieve with influenza vaccine because the flu virus is constantly evolving and changes every year.

Herd immunity has not occurred with pneumococcal vaccines because other serotypes (at least 90) have filled the niche evacuated by vaccine serotypes (at least 13).[15],[16]

There is evidence that some vaccines do confer herd immunity including rubella, chickenpox, Hib, mumps and measles. Of the 14 vaccines given to children in the USA, only a third may afford herd immunity. The myth of herd immunity is used to persuade parents to vaccinate and justify vaccine mandates.

Since this book "Turtles" was written, we now know that herd immunity has not been shown with covid vaccines - they do not prevent transmission and destroy natural immunity thereby increasing infection rates.[17],[18],[19],[20]

The Mysteries of Polio

Regarding this section, one should look to the book for a full reference list.

This is the disease that was used to terrorise the public and has frightened many parents into vaccinating children. The official narrative does not explain many facts. The epidemics seen were of flaccid paralysis. It was assumed that these were due to polio, but a review of the medical literature of 1950 showed over 200 causes and names for flaccid paralysis many of which followed chemical poisoning including insecticide spraying of vegetable and fruits, water and milk contamination.

Acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) outbreaks (called "polio" - but since the virus was not identified until the 1950s, a polio diagnosis is putative)

The problems with the official narrative

Likely explanation

AFP only appeared towards the end of the 19th century

Initially was thought to be due to poor sanitation

The use of toxic chemicals in agriculture took off from 1867 when copper-arsenic "Paris Green" was extensively used for pest control - colarado beetle, gypsy moth etc. This was later replaced by lead arsenate.


Arsenic was a popular dye used in textiles, children's toys, wallpaper, rugs, sweet wrappers and more.


Arsenic was a popular medicine - "Fowler's solutions" was widely prescribed for headaches and fevers - in 1891 one study of 150 people tested at random showed 30 were positive for arsenic!

BUT acute flaccid paralysis increased when all other infectious diseases were in rapid decline

So, the narrative was changed to the "improved hygiene" hypothesis. This has no scientific basis and is not biologically plausible.
Dr. Sabin, the inventor of a polio vaccine, dismissed this hypothesis.

Polio used to be diagnosed on the clinical picture of acute flaccid paralysis - ie a paralysed limb.
But this is not a diagnosis, this is a clinical picture!
This clinical picture has many causes including toxic chemicals.


All other infectious diseases have reduced with improved hygiene.
No association was found between sanitary conditions standards and risk of polio

In 1891, 12 cases of arsenic poisoning were described of which 7 had an acute flaccid paralysis.
The clinical picture of acute flaccid paralysis from poisons and from polio is the same

1893, one year after the introduction of lead arsenate into apple orchards, acute flaccid paralysis cases took off in the summer and autumn. The clinical picture was similar to polio and so they were diagnosed with such.

Infectious diseases usually peak in the winter months

Lead arsenate was widely used in the fruit and vegetable industry and summer and autumn is when they are harvested. It is much more persistent than copper arsenate

1894 it was noticed that where humans developed acute flaccid paralysis so did their domestic animals. This included horses, dogs, cattle, chickens, pigs, and calves.

It is impossible for a virus to jump species so rapidly!

This can only be explained by a poisoning

The UK Manchester 1900 epidemic of AFP ....

....could not be explained by infection.....

....was due to arsenic contamination of barley kernels used for brewing beer.

The 1903 Sweden AFP outbreak reported as many cases in dogs as in children


Animals are equally susceptible to poisons as humans

The 1905 epidemic in Sweden affected rural areas with towns being spared ....

....could not be explained by the germ theory....

.....could be explained by the toxic pesticides routinely used in agriculture

In five cases the acute flaccid paralysis occurred in 6 families living within one mile on the same day...

.....ditto above...

....ditto above

The 1908 Massachusetts epidemic occurred along transportation routes

This could not be explained by the germ theories of Pasteur and Koch

Food contaminated with pesticide residues was transported along transportation routes and consumed locally

A 1909 "polio" outbreak in Minnesota described 3 colts in the same field with flaccid paralysis

No plausible infectious explanation

Chemical poisoning could explain

The 1910 Massachusetts outbreak of 100 families affected by "polio" had illness, paralysis or death in 82 of their animals.



The 1930 epidemic of 50,000 cases of paralysis in central and southern USA....

.....could not be explained by infection...

......but was found due to an alcoholic medicine "Jamaica Ginger". The contaminant was TOCP (triorthocresyl phosphate), an organophosphate pesticide.
This illustrates the point that many chemicals can cause flaccid paralysis.

Lead arsenate was widely used in agriculture until World War II when it was replaced by DDT


DDT is as toxic as lead and arsenic

1946 Dr. Fred Bishopp stated "DDT must not be allowed to get into foods"


This was ignored by Government agencies and the farming lobby

1951 US Public Health Service stated "DDT is a delayed action poison.... it accumulates in the body tissues especially in females... it is excreted in the milk of cows and nursing mothers children and infants are much more susceptible to poisoning than adults"


Children are much more susceptible to chemical poisoning than adults because they are developing, are better at absorbing toxins and less efficient at detoxification.

Epidemics of acute flaccid paralysis were limited to industrialised countries.
In Israel flaccid paralysis increased from 1-2 per 100,000 before 1949 to 150 per 100,000 after, during the 1950s

Infection cannot explain such a sustained 100-fold increase in cases. Infectious disease comes in epidemics every few years.

During and after the second world war arsenic was replaced by DDT. Then agriculture took off in Israel with high use of DDT

"Polio" in Europe was far less common than in the USA


In France arsenic was banned in 1846 and legislation was reinforced in 1916.
In Germany the Imperial Health Commission opposed the use of lead arsenate
In UK a Royal Commission severely limited arsenic use in food and beverages

In the USA, controls on arsenic were never properly enforced


In Britain 1925 sanctions were applied to American apples
In Poland, America apples were banned for sale.
In Czechoslovakia and Austria, a newspaper campaign warned the public against consuming American apples

4 outbreaks of acute flaccid paralysis occurred in children in USA and UK who had consumed contaminated milk from the same provider


Dairy cows were routinely treated with DDT for fly control in the milking parlour. DDT being fat soluble readily gets into the milk

The polio virus was never isolated before 1950 so any diagnosis of flaccid paralysis could never be properly attributed to a virus

All cases of AFP were diagnosed as "polio"

Many were actually due to poisoning

AFP afflicted military personnel whilst the local population had no cases eg US troops in Philippines, Middle East, China, Morocco, India post World War II.

Cannot be explained by infection

Military personnel were using DDT for insect control - mosquitoes, sand flies, bed bugs.
Locals did not use DDT

Epidemic "polio" took off in the 1940s and stayed high for 10 years in the UK and the USA.
By contrast Germany, South Africa, Japan Czechoslovakia and the Netherlands saw their first epidemics.
In France Belgium, Israel and the Soviet Union no epidemics occurred until the 1950s

Infectious diseases do not respect country boundaries!

This is easily explained by the use of DDT a new synthetic insecticide. It is highly durable and bio-accumulates. The military used it for killing body lice, flies, fleas, mosquitoes and for malaria control. It was pesticide of choice for millions of Americans in the home, office, streets, trains, buses and farm. DDT was found in all dairy and meat products in a Texas market.

AFP was 5-10 times more common in officers than enlisted men


Officers' barracks and clubs were sprayed more extensively to protect officers more than enlisted men

Was 120 times more common in British soldiers than in native Indians


Natives did not use DDT

Was 10 times more common in British soldiers serving overseas than on comrade at home


DDT was not used at home in Britain where these insects were not a problem

"Polio" patients do not spread the disease - that is to say it is not contagious

No explanation

Poisonings are not contagious!

Dr. Biskind published a series of papers on the harm of DDT between 1949 and 1953. He showed clear links between the use of DDT and "polio" epidemics

The harm of DDT was attributed to "virus X" but this mystery virus has never been isolated.
"the relationship between DDT and virus X was promptly denied by government officials who provided no evidence to contest the authors observations but relied solely on the prestige of government authorities and sheer number of experts to bolster their position"

DDT affects animals and humans with damage to the anterior horns of the spinal cord (lesions typical of polio).
"Government agencies had presented no data on the overall level of exposure of the US population to DDT and specifically for susceptible groups such as infants, children and pregnant women"

DDT was used to "protect" people from polio so cities and towns were sprayed with DDT from airplanes. "Polio" increased and appeared in areas previously with no cases


1951 there were still many unknowns!

The cause of "polio" was still unknown.
How it was transmitted to people was unknown
Prevention and treatment was unknown

However, the chemical poisoning theory explains all. It is all about lead, arsenic and DDT, and perhaps then followed by organochlorines and organophosphates

1951 Sabin noted that many members of the same family simultaneously developed "polio"


Sabin commented "the consumption of a common article of food or drink contaminated before or after it reaches the home is as plausible and possible as any other [cause]"

In 1952 cases of flaccid paralysis peaked at 60,000 cases
By 1955 cases had fallen to 29,000, mortality was reduced to 25% compared to 1952

AFP case numbers fell BEFORE the vaccine was introduced.
Israeli and Swedish graphs show a similar picture

See graph below.

1955 the Salk polio vaccine was introduced


The introduction of the vaccine paralleled the progressive discontinuation of use of DDT, lead and arsenic

In 1955 the diagnostic criteria were changed so only those with paralysis s for 60 days were diagnosed with "polio".
AND unless the virus could be identified, a polio diagnosis was not given

Case numbers continued to fall after the vaccine because the goal posts were moved.
Case numbers fell at the same rate in unvaccinated as in the vaccinated

Many non-polio, non-viral cases of acute flaccid paralysis can be explained by chemical poisoning by arsenic, lead, DDT, organophosphates, organochlorines and other such toxins.

1955 polio outbreak at the US naval base in Hawaii where the Salk vaccine was used extensively.
Local people not affected

No possible viral explanation. Viruses are not racist!

Could be explained by chemical poisoning

1955 the Cutter incident: paralysis in vaccinated children occurred less than 11 days after receiving the vaccine with paralysis in the injected limb

The Cutter vaccine contained live polio virus which caused paralysis.
The Wyeth vaccine also caused several cases of paralysis


1957 studies showed that 2 doses of Salk vaccine were only 24% effective and 50% of children had no antibody response


Vaccines do not protect against chemical poisoning

1958 polio epidemic Michigan

The virus could only be found in 80% of paralytic cases and 30-50% of non-paralytic cases

There is more than one cause of "polio". We know toxic chemicals are immunosuppressive and render people more susceptible to all infectious disease

1959 polio epidemic in Massachusetts - 75% of "polio" cases had received at least 3 doses of vaccine

Vaccination is ineffective


1960 - public awareness of the toxicity of DDT greatly reduced its use


1962 Rachel Carson's book "Silent Spring" was published detailing the serious toxicity of DDT and pesticides

1960 - the Salk vaccine was found to cause cancer in hamsters. The researcher Bernice Eddy was told not to publish her findings - but she did - and she was sacked.

The Salk and Sabin vaccines were contaminated by a carcinogenic virus namely simian virus 40 from Rhesus monkeys. An estimated 98 million Americas were infected with this virus known to cause bone tumours and mesothelioma (in combination with asbestos).
This was hushed up at the time and remains hushed up!
Anyone vaccinated with polio between 1955 and 1964 are likely to harbour this nasty carcer producing virus


1961 Israel polio cases rose

Of 52 cases of acute flaccid paralysis 46 had received 2 or more doses of vaccine.
Vaccination is ineffective


The Salk vaccine was declared a failure and replaced by the Sabin vaccine

There is no question that polio morbidity had dropped dramatically since the beginning of the 1950s but - judging by health authorities' reactions to swap to the Sabine vaccine - the Salk vaccine was not the primary reason for that drop


Studies show neither vaccine confers herd immunity nor prevents transmission of polio


Acute flaccid paralysis began to wane in the 1960s and 70s but the timing of this was too late to be explained by vaccination

The narrative changes again and polio is again declared a disease of poor sanitation.

Pasteur's friend, physiologist Claude Bernard, taught that the 'terrain' of the human body was more important than the 'pathogens' that infect it. We are surrounded by and harbour, microorganisms in our bodies. When exposed to pathogens, we become ill if our defences are weakened by deficiencies or toxicities. Unlike the germ theory, the terrain theory explains why some people get sick while others, when exposed to the same pathogens, do not. For this reason, it is said that on his death bed, Pasteur admitted, "Bernard was right: the pathogen is nothing, the terrain is everything."


Lead arsenate was not banned until 1988 by which time soils had been seriously contaminated after a 100 years of toxicity so the poisoning continues to date, with well water now polluted with arsenic, especially in Vermont USA.

1979 it was noted that "polio" epidemics occurred across all age groups.

Infectious disease usually drives epidemics in younger children who have yet to develop immunity

This scientific riddle could be explained by a poisoning - no-one is immune to such!

2000 - cases of paralysis followed the Sabin vaccine, so countries reverted to using the failed (but safer) Salk vaccine



Polio in the 3rd World

Again, one should look to the book for a full reference list regarding this table.

Polio outbreaks, or rather flaccid paralysis outbreaks

The problems with the official narrative

Likely explanation

Took off in the 3rd World in the 1960s

Polio incidence in third world countries should have paralleled incidence elsewhere

Polio, or rather AFP, paralleled the use of toxic chemicals


At this time DDT was widely used by the World Health Organisation to control malaria
60% of the population depend on agriculture for survival and used older cheaper pesticides such as DDT, lead and arsenic based compounds.
Rice from Pakistan is now heavily contaminated with arsenic

Between 1988 and 2010 the global incidence of AFP had risen to about 100,000 cases in 2010, three times the global level of paralytic illness recorded in 1988

Vaccines have increased AFP incidence 3-fold.
Some children received 15 doses of the vaccine within a short space of time

The incidence of AFP parallels the use of toxic chemicals

Conclusion of "Turtles All The Way Down":

" belongs to the people. It belongs to humanity not to corrupt government agencies and pharmaceutical giants who collude to rewrite the principles of science in order to continue the decades long cover up of their crimes against humanity. The magnitude of these crimes is enormous - these entities are in way too deep to ever be able to admit any wrongdoing. They will do whatever is necessary to protect the great vaccine hoax. For them it is a matter of life or death - literally. And so it is for us."

The below is from my book "Green Mother"[21]

We should be allowing children to get disease naturally and so establish natural immunity for life. Applying Groundhog Acute[22] in the event of any infection prevents serious complications.

Febrile (fever producing) illness in children (measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, pertussis, scarlet-fever and others) is highly protective against disease later in life. Especially cancer! Remember it is the fever that protects and anti-pyrectics such as aspirin or paracetamol prevent a proper fever.

Hippocrates already mentioned that people who develop cancer had fever in their lives much less often than people who do not get cancer.

A higher number of infections was associated with a lower risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease.

The Japan collaborative cohort study[32]


Colon cancer in young people is increasing

While there is no evidence this could be linked to vaccination or not having febrile diseases, it is perhaps significant the rise started for the generation born in the 1950s, who were the first to participate in the mass vaccination programs beginning in 1953. The rate also rose a lot for those born around 1990, the period when immunisation schedules in the first world sharply expanded and autism and allergy rates took off-autism is strongly associated with bowel issues.

JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Volume 109, Issue 8, August 2017[33]

The converse is true as illustrated by "Science: Increase in cancer cases as a consequence of eliminating febrile infectious diseases"[24]

Hippocrates already mentioned that people who develop cancer had fever in their lives much less often than people who do not get cancer. In the 19th, 20th and 21st century reliable epidemiological studies showed that people going through several fever episodes at an early age less often got cancer at an advanced age.

In 1998 a reliable case-control study described that, with 95% probability, going through childhood diseases with fever (Febrile Infectious Childhood Disease or FICD) results in a reduction of between 5% and 32% of all cases of cancer except breast cancer, with an average of 18%.

A child needs at least 3 episodes of fever for a healthy development of the thymus and, besides the fever, also a good Th1 response, stimulating the cell defence and the killing efficacy of the macrophages. It seems that the immune system has to learn how to react. Just like learning to walk, it needs practice.

Vaccination is, in theory, a great idea. This has not translated into practical reality. The truth is vaccines cause far more harm than good. Vaccines are killing our kids and driving epidemics of chronic disease.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. - Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 - 1860)

How to protect ourselves from infections?

  • Remember Pasteur "the pathogen is nothing, the terrain is everything."
  • Enjoy good hygienic principles of modern life: clean water, food and sewerage disposal.
  • Consume an organic paleo-ketogenic diet.[34]
  • Avoid addictions - or enjoy them occasionally (sugar, alcohol, smoking, caffeine etc). Addictions are good servants but bad masters.
  • Take a basic package of nutritional supplements: Multivitamin, minerals, fish oil, vitamin D 10,000iu and vit C 5 grams daily (lower doses for children)[35]
  • Avoid all chemicals.
  • Do not vaccinate (except for single tetanus vaccine once a child is old enough to injure themself)
  • At the first sign of any infection apply Groundhog Acute[22]

This greatly reduces the infectious load AND allows natural immunity to develop.
