Is There a Link Between Vaccines and the Rise in Pediatric Cancer?

child with cancer

Story Highlights

  • Pediatric cancer has been increasing over the last few decades.
  • The causes of most pediatric cancers are not known.
  • The possible link between vaccines and pediatric cancer has not been fully investigated.

According to the American Cancer Society, after accidents, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children between the ages of one and four. Although pediatric cancers account for less than one percent of all cancers diagnosed each year, the number of children diagnosed with cancer has been rising steadily over the last few decades.1

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimated that 10,270 new cases of pediatric cancers would be diagnosed in 2017 in children from birth to the age of 14. Approximately 1,190 of these children were expected to die as a result of cancer.2

The Five Most Common Pediatric Cancers in the U.S.

Interestingly, the types of cancers that develop in children are different than those that occur in adults.3 According to an article published in CURE Magazine:

The difference between childhood and adult cancers rarely comes down to simply age. Most tumors in children differ biologically from their adult counterparts, and are typically due to the type of cell from which the cancer originates. In the weeks after fertilization, the embryo develops into layers: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. These layers lay the foundation for the development and maturation of tissues and organs in the body. Adult cancers, such as lung, breast, and colorectal, typically develop from epithelial tissue (adenocarcinomas), which come from the ectoderm or endoderm. Epithelial cells make up the skin and lining of the internal organs and glands. Alternatively, childhood cancers, including sarcomas (cancers of the bone or muscle) and leukemia (blood cancers), develop from the mesoderm.4

The most common pediatric cancer is acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), accounting for 34 percent of all pediatric cancers. Leukemia begins in the bone marrow and spreads to the blood. This type of cancer typically occurs between the ages of two to four years and is more common in males than females.3

Brain tumors and nervous system tumors constitute about 27 percent of pediatric cancers.

Most brain tumors in children typically begin in the lower part of the brain.3 Neuroblastoma, a type of cancer than develops in certain types of nerve tissue, accounts for seven percent of pediatric cancers. It is more common in males under the age of five.3

Wilms tumor is the fourth common type of pediatric cancer affecting the kidneys and children between the ages of three to four years. Wilms accounts for five percent of all pediatric cancers.3

Lymphoma is the fifth most common type of pediatric cancer and occurs in a very small percentage of children. This type of cancer begins in immune system cells known as lymphocytes.3

Cause of Most Pediatric Cancers Has Yet to be Determined

The search for the causes of pediatric cancers has been systematically studied over the last few decades. However, there are no conclusive answers on what is causing children to develop cancer.5

According to NCI and a report published in Pediatric Clinics of North America, five to 10 percent of pediatric cancers are believed to be caused by an inherent genetic mutation, a mutation that can be passed on from parents to their child.6 For example, 25 to 30 percent of retinoblastoma, a cancer of the eye that occurs in primarily in children, is believed to be caused by an inherited gene mutation known as RB1.6

Nonetheless, retinoblastoma only accounts for four percent of pediatric cancers and the cause of the remaining 70 percent of cases is still unknown.6

In another example, children with a genetic condition known as Down Syndrome are ten to twenty times more likely to develop leukemia than children without Down Syndrome. However, only a very small proportion of pediatric leukemia is associated with Down Syndrome.6

Studies have shown that that besides high dose radiation and prior chemotherapy, there are very few external or environmental risk factors known to be associated with pediatric cancers.5 Environmental factors refer to exposures children are exposed to that originate outside the human body.5

According to the NCI:

 Most cancers in children, like those in adults, are thought to develop as a result of mutations in genes that lead to uncontrolled cell growth and eventually cancer. In adults, these gene mutations are often the result of exposure to environmental factors, such as cigarette smoke, asbestos, and ultraviolet radiation from the sun. However, environmental causes of childhood cancer have been difficult to identify, partly because cancer in children is rare, and partly because it is difficult to determine what children might have been exposed to early in their development.”6

Potential Link Between Vaccination and Pediatric Cancer Has Not Been Investigated

In the United States, the number of vaccines government health officials’ direct pediatricians to give to children has almost quadrupled in the last 60 years.7 In 1953, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) directed physicians to give a child up to 16 doses of four vaccines between the ages of two months and six years.7 The CDC now recommends that children receive more than triple the number of doses of vaccines, which are given between the day of birth and six. [The CDC’s 2018 childhood vaccine schedule recommends 50 doses of 14 vaccines before the age of six.]8

Coinciding with the significant increase in the number of vaccines is a simultaneous increase in chronic neurological and autoimmune disorders in children, including pediatric cancer.9 Most vaccine package inserts include a statement along the lines of, This vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or impairment of fertility,” which suggests that the potential link between cancer and vaccines has not been thoroughly studied.10 In fact, some vaccine ingredients, such as formaldehyde are known carcinogens.11

It is worth noting that there was public discussion in the 1990s about the contamination of both the Salk inactivated and Sabin live polio vaccines with a monkey virus (SV-40) known to cause cancer in lab animals. Federal health officials acknowledged that SV40 was found in early polio vaccines produced with the use of infected African Green monkey kidney tissues. However, they rejected the finding of a causal association between SV40 and human cancers reported by credentialed non-government scientists in multiple labs around the world, who had independently identified SV40 in the brain and lung cancers of children and adults.12 13

Until well-designed biological mechanism and epidemiological studies are conducted to investigate vaccines and pediatric cancer, including a comparison of cancer rates in vaccinated and unvaccinated children, the question about whether vaccines do or do not cause cancer in children will remain unanswered.

  1. EVERY paid group, notably the ones on the gov dole, insists theirs is the most important. Since they all lie you can trust NONE. This includes Executive Branch alphabet Agencies (some are Not even Constitutional), by the way, “captured” with big bribes. THEY ALL want your money.
    That said, “CANCER” is a mighty wide & hardly defined scare word. The paid medical group salesmen always use a lot of scare words. Is cancer a mutation? or is it broken cells & DNA & now genetic mod/alterations?? All of those? OR WHICHEVER CLAIM MIGHT NET THEM THE MOST FUNDING??
    FINALLY, I THINK YOUR POINT IS ONCE AGAIN VACCINES ARE BEING COVERED UP. Vaccines are a sacred goldmine ATM, to those in power and the paid groups. UNLESS YOU CAN GET HONEST ELECTED PEOPLE IN POWER, there’s no chance, unless you pay for enough TV time to tell America. Ads must appear on their phones, nowadays. YOU need to be what passes for ‘entertainment.’
    Otherwise, you’ll merely continue to beg donations from the choir.
    I guess only We The Poor People complain, because anyone rich filthy gets in power, or hob-knobs with those in power. And THEY invest in the goldmine.

  2. “Potential Link Between Vaccination and Pediatric Cancer Has Not Been Investigated.”
    THAT tells us everything we need to know. Pharma has immunity from lawsuits for any damage vaccines cause and NO investigation on the part of pharma OR on the part of bureaucracy has occurred.
    Case CLOSED.

  3. Considering ALL the healthy unvaccinated children out there, and all the time that could have been spent investigating those healthy unvaccinated children, it’s a real sad and unfair dilemma. I am personally involved, with 4 unvaccinated children, and 10 unvaccinated (or lightly vaccinated) healthy grandchildren.

    1. Just make sure that your children and grandchildren don’t go anywhere where that they can much more likely catch the diseases that vaccines protect against.That would include most of the world.

      I’m not going to talk about your breaking the social bargain of protecting thru vaccination those who can’t be successfully vaccinated or those whose immune systems are compromised. But you better make sure your kids stay home.

      1. I have 7 children, 15 grandchildren, most of whom are either fully or partially unvaccinated. My oldest was born in ’79. Back then you tried to time when kids got chicken pox. All of my kids except the youngest (16) got it. Annoying, but no big deal. I did childcare and worked in childcare facilities and church ministry. A couple of my kids traveled out of the country. The majority of my kids never had more than one antibiotic needed throughout childhood and none of them get sick like those around them. My oldest two had been partially vaccinated. We stopped due to reactions, and they are the ones who did have things like ear infections, rashes, learning issues. Of my grandkids, the healthiest are those who have never been vaccinated. Vaccines hinder rather than build immune systems.

        1. My mid 30’s and 40’s kids are not vaccinated nor are my 8 teen and young adult grandchildren. When hand and foot went through their schools, the 4 unvaccinated kids were the only that didn’t get it. They are extremely healthy!

        2. I’m sorry but do you understand how a vaccine works? Do you understand how the immune system works? You literally need a good immune system in order to be vaccinated. Your comparison is similar to claiming that exercise makes your body weaker just because one person happens to sprain their ankle. Are you all flat earthers also- only looking at data that supports your beliefs and ignoring anything contradictory?

      2. Your comments lead me to believe you are a paid employee of the pharmaceutical industry in some capacity

      3. Send your healthy lifestyle children wherever:
        After they catch measels and chicken pox they’ll have life long immunity
        and the daughters will be able to confer protective immunity to their children for their
        first eighteen months of life.
        After they recover from whooping cough (take vitamin C to help with the cough) they will have a good thirty years of immunity.
        Unlike the rest of the vaccinated masses they won’t be :
        1. asymptomatic carriers of pertussis ;
        2. Susceptible to antigenic sin in which they may never be immune to these diseases due to the ineffective vaccines recieved;
        3. Building up antibiotic resistance because of their increased susceptibility to infection;
        4. Catching and transmitting the flu strain which wasn’t in the vaccine; and
        5. In constant need of boosters for the rest of their life.

        Are your vaccines up to date Sheldon?

        1. Wow! I totally agree with your reply to the Sheldon the Shill. He is either employed in pharmaceuticals or he is part of the Eugenics movement. Thanks for your intelligent reply to an ignorant post!

      4. Please provide “independent” double blind placebo based controlled study on the effectiveness of a childhood vaccine (that means it prevents a child from being infected)and long term safety of a vaccine.

        Independent means that the study has ABSOLUTELY no vaccine/pharma/CDC/researchers or research/or university/hospital groups that receive funding from any of these entities. No funding can be traced back to any entity that has vested financial or political interest in maintaining the vaccine agenda.

      5. Studies Show that Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease

        Also the FDA states that people vaccinated with the Pertussis BACTERIA are contagious:

        Meeting of the Board of Scientific Counselors,
        Office of Infectious Diseases Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
        Tom Harkins Global Communication Center
        Atlanta, Georgia
        December 11-12, 2013

        Nearly a century after the release of the whooping cough (B. Pertussis) vaccine, mounting evidence suggests that widespread mandated use of the vaccine could potentially be doing more harm than good in the long term—in addition to having been found lacking in the effectiveness department. As reported by The Washington Post:

        “The research suggests that while the vaccine “may” keep people from getting sick, it doesn’t prevent them from spreading whooping cough — also known as Pertussis — to others.

        ‘It could explain the increase in Pertussis that we’re seeing in the US,’ said one of the researchers, Tod Merkel of the Food and Drug Administration…

        The study, titled: “Acellular Pertussis vaccines protect against disease but fail to prevent infection and transmission in a nonhuman primate model,” used infant baboons to test the hypothesis that “current acellular pertussis vaccines fail to prevent colonization and transmission” of B. Pertussis. (there is no vaccine for Bordetella Pertussis bacteria) http://www.pnas (dot) org/content/111/2/787

        Lead author Tod Merkel did comment to the New York Times that when exposed to B. Pertussis after recently getting vaccinated, you could be an asymptomatic carrier and infect others, saying:

        “When you’re newly vaccinated, you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population.”

        Your comment about those who can’t be vaccinated is pure propaganda because the CDC has on their website protocols for children who have various illness such as cancer who can be vaccinated once their treatment is completed. If they are in treatment such as chemo or radiation they are most likely in the hospital or not out in public which is standard protocol because their immune system are weakened. If a child is receiving chemo or radiation and a parent is taking them out in public than that’s an irresponsible parent and no one is to blame but the parent if the child become ill, even if it’s just a cold.

      6. LOL! Sheldon must be trolling for the pHARMa industry. Another troll trying to spread the fear. Afraid your vaccines aren’t working? Well you would be correct on that count! Maybe you should stay in your bubble since you are the one afraid–most of the world would be considered unvaccinated according to the current,, corrupt and unstudied cumulative CDC vaccine schedule.

      7. Hey, shill. How do we know that vaccinated children do not cause the very diseases that unvaccinated children get, since there is “no” funding for studies to show such an association or a correlation coefficient that would prove causation? How do we know that “vaccines confer immunity” when such an assertion has never been proven? Finally, it has been shown in the literature that getting a disease and suffering a high fever actually prevents cancer, the subject of this article. Uneducated, illiterate ingrates like you don’t deserve respect or mercy for clinging to unproven lies and twisted, biased statistics known as “peer-reviewed research.” People like you need to be forcefully rounded up and given experimental vaccines so that you can “prove” the lies that you so confidently assert to be true.

  4. This is the story of my own son who went on to develop Autism and Seizures just before his 3rd Birthday about a week after his Pertussis booster shot. His seizure disorder worsened every year until it eventually took his life at the age of 17.
    Why must so many families be subjected to this devastating life changing condition. There are more children today getting Autism than these vaccines help!
    Profits over our children’s lives needs to stop now. No more victims, no more loss of life.
    We need to keep fighting this corruption and make the world a safer place for our children. This is unacceptable!
    What kind of future does a Nation have when 1 in 50 adults will have Autism after this generation becomes adults.
    This has got to stop!

    1. The reason autism rates have gone up is because of advancements in technology that make it easier to detect autism, there is no link between vaccinations and autism.

      1. Hey, shill. How do we know that vaccinated children do not cause the very diseases that unvaccinated children get, since there is “no” funding for studies to show such an association or a correlation coefficient that would prove causation? How do we know that “vaccines confer immunity” when such an assertion has never been proven? Finally, it has been shown in the literature that getting a disease and suffering a high fever actually prevents cancer, the subject of this article. Uneducated, illiterate ingrates like you don’t deserve respect or mercy for clinging to unproven lies and twisted, biased statistics known as “peer-reviewed research.” People like you need to be forcefully rounded up and given experimental vaccines so that you can “prove” the lies that you so confidently assert to be true.

  5. Yes, the number of vaccines given to children have gone up.

    But as I’m sure the author knows, the number of things that the body of the child has been exposed by vaccines to has gone way, way down. The best example is the elimination of the smallpox vaccine which exposed children to many, many more antigens than all the vaccines given today. Changes in other vaccines have also reduced the number of antigens greatly. Dr. Offit has detailed the changes.

    And of course, the number of things that infants are exposed to just by being born is much, much, much higher.

    Me, I think the correlation is between cancer and climate change and burning coal. That’s as good an explanation as the author’s.

    1. Polio vaccine causes cancer as stated by Dr. Maurice Hilleman:
      Vaccine pioneer admits adding cancer-causing virus to Vaccine-

      Reading Janine Roberts extremely revealing books:”Fear of the Invisible” and “The Vaccine Papers” she reveals that the monkeys that carried the SV-40 virus were used for decades in vaccine development. So yea, if you correlate the time frame of the the number of vaccines and the increase in the number of childhood cancers-it’s pretty compelling.

  6. There is NO question in my mind about the link between vaccines and childhood cancer. But I can also do you one better than that. I had never even known or heard of a child with cancer when I had my first child in 1985. The possibility of that happening to one of my children never even crossed my mind.

    For the entire nine months of the pregnancy (in the mid 1980s) I worked as a data entry operator for a University, with my pregnant belly within an inch of a computer monitor. Having heard that they emitted radiation, I checked with two different gynecologists about the safety of this arrangement and was assured it would not harm my unborn child.

    Having already done some studying about vaccines and knowing their danger, I did not allow my newborn to be vaccinated at all until he was 6 months old. For that first 6 months of life he was perfectly healthy….not sick one time. And being concerned about the LIVE polio vaccine, I found a doctor who would give him the killed, injected polio. I now wonder if that was a bad decision…it may have been even worse than the ‘live’ virus vaccine.

    At 6 months he was given only the polio and the DPT, from which he developed a large red, hot, welt on his leg, and screamed a lot for 24 hours or so. He then began developing constant ear infections that never stopped for the rest of his life.

    By the time he was four, I began questioning if there was something wrong with his brain, because even though he was very bright, his behavior just didn’t seem ‘right’ to my maternal instincts…very volatile. His father assured me he was fine and we were financially challenged, so we did not pursue it.

    At age eight he began to have back pains and limped a little. Several trips to the chiropractor didn’t help. Eventually weight loss, a swollen belly and fever led to a diagnosis of neuroblastoma…cancer of the nervous system. After 22 months of various treatments, he passed away.

    Fast forward two years later (1997) when I was pregnant again and sitting in the gynecologist’s examining room waiting for the doctor to come in. How surprised I was to pick up a magazine article that itemized environmental (and other) factors that were known or suspected causes of childhood cancer…including causes in utero. Of course, in 1997 the medical community wasn’t about to allow anyone to question vaccines as a culprit, but one of the suggested causes was an unborn baby being in close proximity to a computer monitor from the mid 1980s for prolonged periods of time. Apparently by 1997 the medical community knew that those particular monitors emitted a very high amount of radiation which could affect a developing fetus. Wouldn’t you know it! Oh how I wish I had learned to trust my intuition at that time!

    The point is, I suspect that the computer monitor ‘set things up’ for future pediatric cancer while my child was unborn, and the vaccines I allowed at 6 months and beyond finished the job. The doctors told us while he was under treatment from age 8 to 10 that they could see that he had had cancer in his adrenal glands at some earlier point in life, but that his immune system had conquered it.

    Needless to say, the child I had in 1997 has had no vaccines, and we are very cautious about the way we use computers and electronics in our home. Trust your intuition…not the medical community!

  7. Thanks to all of you for your Posts. I know my son in the late 70’s had extreme reactions to vaccines. Then he had more in the late 70’s. He came down with Scarlet Fever… was awful. My Pediatrician said NO MORE. I never did any more…..back then it was “legal”. Increase in Cancer……….yes, but more factors too. I am making sure my Grandchildren get limited vaccines over time …..and get homeopathics to help any side effect. Blessing to all the parents and children today.

  8. How many other factors affect us that are not investigated? Formaldehyde is in particle board, used extensively in mobile homes and by do it yourselfers. If this is in your house,a it will affect thinking, neurological systems, development and is known to cause cancer. The government has know this since 2012 but allows it’s use. What else endangers our children?

  9. Ultrasounds should also be considered and studies more! We know it can and does cause damage to cellular function, the radiation heats up bone and tissue, and even effects cell enzymes. This has got to be looked at and yet no one is even talking about it! Combine ultrasound radiation, vaccines and GMO’s and I don’t know how every child isn’t developing cancer!

  10. When the CDC refuses to test the current and cumulative vaccine schedule for safety and consistently DENIES the damage it is inflicting on this generation of children , well it is criminal! We have failed our children immensely by allowing the CDC and government to allow our children to be harmed by their complete negligence in regards to vaccines and their safety. It is no wonder that the US is number 1 in SIDS, SUIDS, day of birth deaths, auto immune diseases and childhood cancers, and autism.

  11. Never really thought about that question. The fear factor in seeing children with such diseases was enough for us to opt out, change our diet completely, and fess up the additional cash for safer products. It’s a struggle but it’s worth it. We have a right to a chemical free life if we so choose. Got rid of environmental local toxins, cleaning products, dangerous offgassing in furniture, have water filtration systems, shower filter, etc. We consume primarily non gmo organic sugar free foods, what a wonderful change from the processed foods we were conditioned to upon growing up. We shop at the goodwill and avoid as many plastics in purchasing as we are able, plastic a victim of it’s on success that will take the rest of us down with it. So if you go through all that effort, who would be stupid enough to inject those toxins into their blood stream. I keep on telling you guys, if you’re concerned about vaccinations, you’d be a fool to ignore genetically modified food, ignore water toxicity via municipal non filtration (yes, much of your water you drink never passes through a solid state filter.), you’d be a fool to ignore the chemicals in cleaning products, fsc’s in furniture, msg analogs in nearly all processed foods, not be able to recognize the 10 forms of sugar fraudulently concealed in foods, that sort of thing. Chemicals, I don’t care what form they’re delivered in, we don’t want them, we don’t need them. We reject chemicals and the chemical lobbies clever hooks into all facets of ‘safety related organizations.’ Better living through not being exposed to chemicals. We’re not worrying about childhood cancer, we’re worrying about college, being our 1st grader already tested 5th grade. As expected, the public school staff won’t acknowledge the fact she is non vaccinated and an organic eater likely plays a strong role. Thank you to Colorado team at NVIC, for the simple opt out pages, our children are non vaccinated in public school thanks to your efforts. We’ll donate again soon when we are able. Now how to get the teachers to quit rewarding good behavior with dangerous foods… How to escape the discrimination of being denied sports participation because they’re not ‘vaxxed’. A ways to go, but still, Thank you.

  12. I don’t know if vaccines CAUSED it, or just TRIGGERED something he was genetically predisposed to do anyway…but my son’s leukemia being diagnosed just a few months after his 2yr vaccines was not a coincidence.. And when talking to other cancer moms, 2-2.5 years is the most common age for diagnosis..
    Oncology told me that leukemia is “triggered” by a virus.. I KNOW in my heart that “virus” was MMR…

  13. I just saw this article. I would gladly donate my time to review 1 million files of children who have been diagnosed with childhood cancers. I’d review what type of cancer they got, if they were vaccinated, and when vaccines were performed. It would take a while, but prove a point. Of course, it would never happen because I think we all know what the relationship and results would be. I keep fighting every year. Two boys…no vaccines. Never will.

  14. I’m 30 years old and I’ve stopped getting them as a toddler. My 21 year old sister has 0 vaccines. We are both healthy, not one health issue what so ever. I do get dry scalp from time to time but that’s it. I had chicken pox and ear infections as a toddler though, she never got that. 100% ear infections and chicken pox are associated with vaccines. 100%.

    1. Have you ever heard of herd immunity? That is why you haven’t been terribly afflicted- the more people that choose to be anti-vax, the less effective herd immunity becomes.

    2. Tell me, how does one get “chicken pox” today, when 99.99% of adults for the past 50 years have not even touched a live chicken? The CDC and WHO caused the coronavirus plandemic through media manipulation and (possibly a real, accidentally released or deliberately released) a “bad batch” of a flu vaccine which they “failed to notice.” Why is it that the entire world seems oblivious to the FACT that a new “bubonic plague” could be started with a SINGLE “vaccine injection” that some poor brainwashed fool accepted without question? We need to dismantle the WHO, the UN, the CDC and take control over all governments and their useless administrations; because WE are the government and WE have the God given right to choose what is right and just for ourselves and for our children.

  15. All these poor uneducated anti vaxxers in the chat make me sad. Can’t wait for them to go extinct from an easily preventable disease.

    1. It’s sadder that it will be the children that face the consequences of their ignorance rather than them themselves.

  16. Has anyone considered what the combined vaccines of the parents and the effects passed on to babies have? Plus how vaccines actually put our own immune system to sleep and does not respond to intuders in our bodies hence diseases develop that would have been destroyed naturally ?

  17. I understand the suspicions people have of vaccines, pharmaceutical companies and the medical industry. I share these views in part. It is good to be skeptical of the pharmaceutical industry because they are profit-driven and benefit financially from our use of their products. Medicine/Health should not be a profit industry!

    However, when it was time to decide whether to vaccinate my kids, I researched this topic extensively and it was reading accounts of doctors working in third world countries watching thousands of kids die of preventable diseases that swayed me to immunize. Non-immunized kids in countries with adequate nutrition, hygiene, medical care, etc… can escape harm from many of these diseases in part because so many do immunize and these harmful diseases are not running rampant in our society.

    However, the picture is very different in developing countries where many are not vaccinated.

    “Over 100,000 kids in the developing world died from measles in 2014-15.”

    “There is no specific treatment for measles and most people recover within 2–3 weeks. However, particularly in malnourished children and people with reduced immunity, measles can cause serious complications, including blindness, encephalitis, severe diarrhoea, ear infection, pneumonia and death.” (Measles vaccination has saved an estimated 17.1 million lives since 2000:

    “Large numbers of children (in Africa) are still not vaccinated and die from vaccine-preventable diseases. In 2013, more than three million children under the age of five suffered this fate.” (, There was a quote in one of these papers that 40% of kids that survived measles in the developing world ended up with lifelong side-effects from the measles infection (blindness, brain lesions, etc…) Also, an added bonus to kids in the third world is that those immunized also died less from pneumonia and other infections than non-immunized.

    Dr. Makumbi, Director of Uganda National Expanded Programme of Immunisation (UNEPI)
    “Children who get measles in Africa have a good chance of dying from it.” – shows a reduction of deaths due to vaccination worldwide.

    Lastly, here is a study (fairly small sample) that shows vaccines and childhood cancer links has not been found. What does help is exclusive breastfeeding and (surprisingly) no vitamin supplementation in the early years. I haven’t extensively researched this topic though.

    Well, just a few things to consider on this topic…

    Be well everyone.

  18. CBA I applaud you.
    Kids can die from any disease if the symptoms are not controlled. Dehydration is the number one cause. For example with the rotavirus kids die from dehydration not because they have diarrhea. Give them electrolytes and the diarrhea will go away by itself. In those 3rd world countries, they lack means to take care of the kids. And lack education to know what to do.

  19. CBA,
    It’s great that you are researching, but wondering why you focused your research and made your decision based on what you heard and read about third world countries?
    Do you live in a third world country where you do not nave access to clean water, proper sanitation, and nutrition?

    Have you read the Abby study about children in Guinea-Bissau
    Africa given the DTP shot, the ones that got it had higher mortality from other diseases than the ones who did not?
    For an overview on what led to the decline in mortality and also the findings on that study you can check this out:

    Some other very important areas of research you might want to consider are:
    What’s in a vaccine? What are they grown on (ingredients/ excipients)?
    What do we know about say, injected aluminum salts? Foreign animal and human DNA fragments? etc.?
    What are the synergistic effects of multiple ingredients?
    Do we have long-term double-blind inert placebo safety studies on individual vaccines?
    How about the whole schedule?
    Are any of the vaccines tested to see if they cause cancer, infertility, or mutations?
    Approx. how many adverse reactions get reported to the government’s passive surveillance system (VAERS)?

    That is where I would start anyhow. Then from there I would look at the infections for which there are vaccines; what are the chances of contracting them, are they life-threatening, can they be easily treated or prevented?

    I would suggest checking out for more information.
    Keep researching and be well!

    1. Em, please go and obtain a PhD in every subject just so that you can live life (you’re basically implying this) or go and take a single Biology 101 class which would save you more time than scrounging the internet and possibly reading false information.

  20. I found this article very interesting.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    You may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!
