Is There A Correlation Between Vaccinations And Children Mortality Rates?

This seems to be a controversial topic these days with many strong opinions on both sides. What do you think?  Let’s look at some of the data.

The tables indicate that the U.S. is 34th in Infant Mortality Rate (IMR). All 33 countries with less infant mortality under the age of one year receive less vaccinations. There are many facts and figures to substantiate this statement. Please take a few minutes to review this article. The infant mortality rate is expressed as the number of infant deaths per 1000 live births.

According to the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), which keeps accurate, up-to-date infant mortality statistics throughout the world, in 2009 there were 33 nations with better infant mortality rates than the United States (Table 1). The US infant mortality rate of 6.22 infant deaths per 1000 live births ranked 34th.


A literature review was conducted to determine the immunization schedules for the United States and all 33 nations with better IMRs than the United States. The total number of vaccine doses specified for infants aged less than 1 year was then determined for each country (Table 2). A vaccine dose is an exact amount of medicine or drug to be administered. The number of doses a child receives should not be confused with the number of ‘vaccines’ or ‘injections’ given. For example, DTaP is given as a single injection but contains three separate vaccines (for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis) totaling three vaccine doses effect of toxicity.


Vaccines contain a combination of at least 39 different toxic additives, preservatives and cell types introduced during the manufacturing process.


These vaccine contaminants have included bovine (cow), avian (chicken) and monkey viruses and bacteria such as streptococcus in the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine [Pediatrics, Vol. 75, No. 2, Feb 1985] and Serratia marcesens in the influenza vaccines [2004 influenza season]. For example, DTP, a common vaccine given to most newborns, is produced using formaldehyde, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, polysorbate 80 and gelatin. In some cases, thimerosal (mercury) still is used. The polio vaccine is produced using three types of polio virus and can contain formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), sucrose (table sugar), neomycin, streptomycin, polymyxin B and VERO cells (a continuous line of monkey kidney cells).


It is also important to consider an infant’s developing filtering system for eliminating toxins. For example, aluminum is eliminated from the body primarily through the kidneys. Infant kidney function (glomerular filtration rate) is low at birth and does not reach full capacity until one to two years of age. [Simmer, K. Aluminium in Infancy. In: Zatta PF, Alfrey AC. (Eds) Aluminium Toxicity in Infants’ Health and Disease. 1997, World Scientific Publishing.] The cumulative effect of these toxins, particularly the heavy metals, is hotly debated.


The current schedule of recommended vaccines is so crowded that doctors give babies several shots during a single office visit — up to eight vaccines all at one time.  Parents — and doctors — often forget that vaccines are drugs. How often do we, as adults, take that many drugs at the same time? Would we be more surprised if we did or did not have an adverse reaction?


In 1985 the schedule was as follow: 18 vaccines by 6 months, 33 vaccines by 5 years. Lets fast forward to 2010: 51 vaccines in 15 shots by 6 months (some are combined several in 1 shot), 77 vaccines in 23 shots by school, 95 vaccines if also had been getting the flu shot which is 3 in 1. Now 20 more are added with the adolescent group of vaccines.


The decision to vaccinate or not is important and complex. Parents must take on the responsibility to seek enough information to make an educated, informed decision.


Dr. Mayer Eisenstein has practiced medicine, delivered babies, and provided families with preventive healthcare services for over 35 years. His book “Don’t Vaccinate Before You Educate” is  an honest guide to childhood shots especially for concerned parents. With Dr. Eisenstein’s help, it is now possible to make informed vaccine decisions.


Armed with as much information as possible, parents then can make the choice in consultation with their own health-care providers. If choosing to vaccinate, they can consider waiting until after 2 years old to allow the brain enough time build up defenses.


Another suggestion is building the immune system before during and after the event using good quality Vitamin C, Vit D, Coloidal Silver, Fish Oil, Homeopathics are some other suggestions.


In an article Dr Sherri Tenpenny says:

“We’ve all been taught that germs are bad and they are lurking around every corner, waiting to invade defenseless humans. Doctors and the media talk about swine flu as though getting the flu is an inevitable catastrophe unless, of course, we are injected with the life-saving flu shot.

We go to great lengths to combat these potential invaders: frequent hand-washing, learning to cough in our sleeves and grimacing at the thought of eating a morsel retrieved from the floor. Is all this necessary? Or is there a different view?”


Challenging Pasteur’s mechanistic idea of disease—finding the right cure (drug) for each germ—was the seed of the pharmaceutical empire. Nonetheless, it is most unfortunate that Pasteur’s premise was accepted as complete to the exclusion of all others.


The frailty of the immune system is a medical myth. We need a better understanding of the relationship between humans and microbes to live in optimal health. The immune system is the complex interaction between white blood cells, antibodies, hormones, proteins, enzymes, and inflammatory molecules called cytokines. All act in silent synchrony to maintain health. The body is exposed to billions of microbes on the skin, in the mouth, in the digestive tract, and on everything we touch. Microbes that coexist with humans are called symbionts—organisms we have a beneficial relationship with, and are considered to be part of, our normal flora.


The immune system can easily recognize non-symbionts and effectively eliminates them. This process occurs thousands of times per day with little fanfare. However, it is not the “invasion” by external microbes that leads to symptoms known as an infection; it is the compromise of the immune system due to the contamination of the terrain that allows this to occur.


Health is about the condition of the body called the “terrain,” or its “soil,” and only when the immune system’s soil is disrupted and contaminated can pathogens propagate. Supporting the body through this elimination process with homeopathy, herbs, and Chinese medicine – instead of suppressing the symptoms with Western medicine’s tools – may be a key to long-term health and longevity.


Dr Lemire has delivered over 500 babies during his 37 years of practicing. Even though he no longer delivers, he is still having newborns and children in the practice.  At Lemire Clinic we do not give childhood vaccines. Parents are educated and supported in their choices.
