There is a very interesting article in the latest (October 2013) 'What Doctor's Don't tell you' about brave Dr Jayne Donegan, a GP that was all for vaccination (like most other doctors) in her early career but changed her mind when she started to do her own research into vaccines. Her career was almost ruined when she discovered that doctors are being misled by the government about their safety and effectiveness.
Dr Jayne Donegan believes that her profession is being deliberately misled by the UK's department of health (DoH) which, in its 'Green Book' on vaccinations issued to all doctors, is deliberately massaging the data to make vaccines seem more effective and safe than they actually are. She was for this reason charged by her own governing body, the General Medical Council (GMC), of serious professional misconduct of bringing the profession into disrepute. The hearing was the result of the GMC charging her directly although, in the vast majority of cases it only acts when the public has filed complaint. Remarkably, the GMC panel found her not guilty and agreeing in their findings that she had been objective, independent and unbiased in her research conclusions. Which kind of suggest that they are agreeing with what she is saying.
Dr Donegan spent many days at the office for National Statistics (ONS) studying health records going back several hundred years. There she discovered something that shook her world: Deaths from whooping cough had fallen dramatically from the mid-1850's onwards and death rates had dropped by 99% before the vaccine was partially introduced in the 1950's. So deaths from whooping cough had decreased with 99% before the vaccine was introduced. This mean that the vaccine was totally unnecessary and not at all the reason for the drop in the disease. It also means that the Green Book is tampering with the truth. And she found exactly the same thing with measles. The Green Book Graph starts in 1940 and appears to show an enormous drop in cases from 1968 when the vaccine was introduced. But when Dr Donegan took the data back to the early 1900s she discovered the drop in around 99% again happened 60 years before the vaccine came out and there had been no deaths in measles since 1905.

Dr Donegan's view about some of our vaccines
Tetanus: Wounds should be cleaned immediately, and 3 per cent hydrogen peroxide is an excellent cleanser. As the tetanus vaccine is available only with thiomersal, aluminium hydroxide and formaldehyde, it is safer to build up a child's immune system and clen any wounds carefully.
Whooping cough: Children develop natural immunity against whooping cough from breast milk, but parents who want their child vaccinated should choose the acellular vaccine. It is currently not available without the mercury additive thiomersal and the whole-cell version has such a high incidence of side-effects that I think it should never be used.
Measles: This is a benign childhood illness in the child with a strong immune system. In the Steiner alternative school community, during a measels outbreak not one severe case was reported. There is plenty of evidence about adverse reactions to the vaccine that should convince parents not to have it. Don't give in to fear about measles generated by doctors and governments.
