A common misconception about vaccines purports that they are the primary reason why infectious disease rates saw a rapid and steady decline throughout the early-to-mid 20th century.
But an honest look at the figures
reveals that diseases like polio, typhoid, measles, and tuberculosis
were already in significant decline long before vaccines were ever
even invented, this being the result of improved hygiene and diet.
This fact is clearly illustrated in these powerful visual graphs created by NHF that contain vital statistics from official U.S. public health records:
The same can be seen for both whooping
cough (pertussis) and measles as well, the vaccines for which
emerged in the mid-1940s and 1963, respectively.
Just after the diphtheria vaccine's release in 1920, for instance, there was actually a spike in death cases from the disease, followed by the continued decline that had already been taking place before the vaccine's release.
A similar spike was seen following the release of the whooping cough vaccine as well.
Typhoid fever is an excellent illustration of this crucial fact, as the disease almost completely disappeared in the 40 years between 1920 and 1960 without ever even having had an associated vaccine.
Likewise, scarlet fever followed a
similar pattern of natural eradication without ever having had an
associated vaccine, as you will observe in these compelling graphs.
Exposing the truth may not be popular
with the vaccine industry and its corporate-political allies, which
profit heavily from the "vaccines ended infectious disease"
but it could help save you and your loved ones from needless vaccine
