So I have addressed the Germ Theory in the previous articles, now it is time to shed some light on probably the most profitable portion of the entire thing, Vaccination.
If you haven’t read the first two in the series, be sure to read those.
In 2017, Pharmacuetical company GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) pulled in $7.16 Billion, besting Merck’s $6.5 billion, Sanofi’s $6.25 billion and Pfizer’s $6 billion. That comes to a total of $25.91 BILLION and this isn’t even all of the companies making them, just the top few.
The amount of “recommended” vaccines is increasing practically every year.
As a medical man I look upon vaccination as an insult to common sense, as superstitious in its origin, unscientific in theory and practice, and useless and dangerous in its character. - Dr Walter Hawden
All ‘conspiracy theories’ aside… This is a very lucrative business to be in, and it is important to consider the main goal of a corporation, and that is to continously increase profits. To survive.
It is very important to understand, that when a corporation is created, it becomes it’s own legal entity. By definition… a person
This means that they get a few benefits compared to you or me if being tried in court. What I am mainly getting at here is that no matter what this person (corporation) does, it’s likely nobody will ever go to jail. At least not in the United States or Europe.
But this is a whole different article, so let’s get back to Vaccines.
The “Official” History On Vaccines
According to the “official” story…
It is all reported to have started back in 1796 with Edward Jenner and his discovery of a way to vaccinate for smallpox. Jenner reportedly noticed that milkmaids tending to cows never got smallpox after they had been infected with cowpox. Cowpox usually was a lot milder of a disease in humans compared to smallpox which caused severe skin eruptions and dangerous fevers in humans.
On May 14, 1796, Jenner took some puss that was squeezed out of a lesion on Sarah Nelms Hand (Actual Picture Above) and scratched it into the skin of 8 year old boy James Phipps, it is reported that a single blister rose up on the spot, but that James soon recovered. Then on July 1, Jenner inoculated the boy again, this time with smallpox matter, and no disease developed. Then doctors all over Europe soon adopted Jenner’s ‘innovative’ technique
The REAL History Of Vaccines (Variolation or Inoculation)
The facts here are that the original name for vaccination wasn’t always vaccination, the name was changed fairly recently after Jenner was PUT into the spotlight for his work . The original names for vaccination were variolation and inoculation.
The earliest hints of the practice of inoculation for smallpox in China come during the 10th century. The Chinese also practiced the oldest documented use of variolation, dating back to the fifteenth century.
They implemented a method of “nasal insufflation” administered by blowing powdered smallpox material, usually scabs, up the nostrils. - Wikipedia: Vaccine
Understanding what I do now about the immune system, I feel like this insufflation method of administration could actually work like they’re supposed to, or at least better than the ones they use today. But the main point here is that vaccination is usually believed to be a fairly recent technology, but in fact it actually appears as if it’s been around for literally a millennium .
There are letters dating back to the 1600’s that were published in 1722 that describe variolation, but the first publication of these letters was in 1714.
It wasn’t until Dr. Emmanuel Timoni of Constantinople promoted the practice that variolation began its spread through Western Europe. After coming across the practice in Constantinople, Timoni wrote a letter describing the method in detail which was later published in the Philosophical Transactions in early 1714.
But that wouldn’t be enough to make this a mainstream thing, they needed to somehow get the public on board.
The First Use Of A “Celebrity” To Promote Variolation (Vaccination)
Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, was wife to the British ambassador to Turkey, a letter writer and a poet. It is said that she was a smallpox survivor but the disease left her face disfigured, and that she lost her brother to the disease.
While in Turkey she came across the process of variolation as it was practiced amongst the people of Constantinople. She first mentioned variolation in the famous letter to her friend, Sarah Chiswell, in April 1717. in which she enthusiastically recounted the process, which in Constantinople was most commonly administered by experienced elderly women. In 1718, she had the practice conducted on her five-year-old son, Edward Montagu. The procedure was supervised by the embassy doctor Charles Maitland.
On her return to England, she had her four-year-old daughter inoculated in the presence of physicians of the royal court in 1721. Both variolations proved successful. Later on that year Maitland conducted an experimental inoculation of six prisoners within the Newgate Prison of London. In the experiment, six condemned prisoners were variolated and later exposed to smallpox with the promise of freedom if they survived. The experiment was a success, and soon variolation was drawing attention from the royal family, who helped promote the procedure throughout England. However, variolation caused the death of Prince Octavius of Great Britain, eighth son and thirteenth child of King George in 1783.
This is the official story on Wikipedia, although according to a publication on NCBI, only 1 of the 6 was actually exposed to smallpox.
the procedure was tested on six condemned prisoners who were promised amnesty if they survived. They all survived; one of them was even exposed to patients with active smallpox to demonstrate immunity. - The myth of the medical breakthrough: smallpox, vaccination, and Jenner reconsidered.
This may seem irrelevant, but I think it should be noted that Wikipedia is KNOWN to change whatever it sees fit, in order to purvey a narrative.
This was just the push the “medical establishment” needed in order to gain support from the people. But I think the most important part is what happened after this whole publicity stunt. The process needed to be perceived as something that wasn’t able to be done by just anyone, so they had to introduce a few extra steps in order to be able to cash in on it.
Despite opposition, variolation established itself as a mainstream medical treatment across England. Part of its success was founded on statistical observation, which confirmed that variolation was a safer alternative to contracting smallpox naturally, strengthened by the assumption that it protected against the disease for life. The major faults of variolation lay within its simplicity. Doctors sought to monopolize the simple treatment by convincing the public that the procedure could only be done by a trained professional. The procedure was now preceded by a severe bloodletting, in which the patient was bled, often to faintness, in order to ‘purify’ the blood and prevent fever. Doctors also began to favor deep incisions, which also discouraged amateurs. - Wikipedia: Variolation
This is a good example of the medical system manipulating their patients in order to cash in on it as much as possible, without regard to the patients.
I’m fairly certain the only reason that variolation isn’t usually mentioned when discussing the real history of vaccines is because it got a really bad reputation in the years leading up to Jenner.
Jenner is portrayed as a hero because he saved an 8 year old boy from smallpox. But there’s a little more to be said about “Dr” Edward Jenner.
“Dr.” Edward Jenner
More often than not, when looking into this fellow. He is portrayed as the father of vaccines, and a hero. Way back in 1796, he did after all, save that 8 year old boy, James Phipps.
But this wasn’t the full story. Jenner was actually inoculated when HE was an 8 year old boy. So I’m not even sure whether or not I should believe it…
In 1757, an 8-year-old boy was inoculated with smallpox in Gloucester; he was one of thousands of children inoculated that year in England. The procedure was effective, as the boy developed a mild case of smallpox and was subsequently immune to the disease. His name was Edward Jenner. - NCBI: Edward Jenner and the history of smallpox vaccination
This is strange because in all the official places (Wikipedia), this is completely overlooked. He didn’t just magically come up with this “breakthrough” at all. He was just the first to call this process vaccination .
Another pretty important and completely overlooked part of Jenner’s story is that he didn’t even pass the tests needed to get his medical degree. He purchased it (which apparently was so common back then that Wikipedia doesn’t mention it at all) and then applied to Oxford using that purchased degree.
Jenner did not take any examinations to receive his medical degree, but purchased a medical degree in 1792, from a Scottish University, the University of St. Andrews, and subsequently would apply for a degree from Oxford University, which he was granted - NewWorldEncyclopedia, Encyclopedia of Public Health 2002
As far as I’m concerned, this guy is a fraud just like Pastuer. The reason that the terms variolation and vaccination were seperated is because there was quite a bit of controversy associated with variolation and the “celebrities” known for the practice.
So how did it become mainstream?
Cotton Mather and Dr. Zabdiel Boylston
Cotton Mather was a reverend who was very interested in science and medicine. A ship from the West Indies brought a boatload of people that were sick with smallpox, and Mather had heard of variolation, so he wrote a letter and requested it immediately, the only doctor that responded was Boylston.
Mather, a graduate of Harvard College, was always very interested in science and medicine. When a ship from the West Indies carried persons sick with smallpox into Boston in 1721, an epidemic broke out in Boston and other parts of Massachusetts. Mather wrote a cautious letter recommending immediate variolation. However, he persuaded only Dr. Boylston. With Mather’s support, Boylston immediately started a variolation program and continued to inoculate many volunteers, despite many adversaries in both the public and the medical community in Boston. As the disease spread, so did the controversy around Mather and Boylston (12). At the height of the epidemic, a bomb was thrown into Mather’s house.
Now I’m going to emphasize that last sentence again…
At the height of the epidemic, a bomb was thrown into Mather’s house.
Why you ask?
It was because variolation had already had a reputation for spreading disease and killing lots of people even before he brought it to the “New World”.
In Europe, where the medical profession was relatively organized, the new methods of variolation became known quickly among physicians. Since there was also a demand for protection against smallpox, physicians soon began the variolation procedure on a massive scale. Although 2% to 3% of variolated persons died from the disease, became the source of another epidemic, or suffered from diseases (e.g., tuberculosis and syphilis) transmitted by the procedure itself, variolation rapidly gained popularity among both aristocratic and common people in Europe. - NCBI: Edward Jenner and the history of smallpox vaccination
The publication goes on to say that the death rate was 10 times lower than it was for people that contracted the disease naturally, but I will bring common sense and logic to the table.
If this was SO MUCH better than contracting the disease naturally, then why the hell would people throw a bomb into Mather’s house?!
They didn’t have hospitals with computers and internet to properly document probably even 10% (being generous) of the actual number of natural smallpox cases. I know that I didn’t go rushing to the hospital to report that I had the flu, or food poisoning, or anything else for that matter unless i literally had bones sticking out of my body.
The publication goes on further to say that after the whole bomb incident, they decided it was time to do an actual study comparing the case-fatality rates for variolated smallpox and natural smallpox. This study was done during “The Great” epidemic of 1721. Keep in mind that the bomb was reportedly thrown into his house at the height of this epidemic.
To make their point, Mather and Boylston used a statistical approach to compare the mortality rate of natural smallpox infection with that contracted by variolation. During the great epidemic of 1721, approximately half of Boston’s 12,000 citizens contracted smallpox. The fatality rate for the naturally contracted disease was 14%, whereas Boylston and Mather reported a mortality rate of only 2% among variolated individuals. This may have been the first time that comparative analysis was used to evaluate a medical procedure. - NCBI: Edward Jenner and the history of smallpox vaccination
So, a boat arrives in 1721 in Boston, and with it a smallpox epidemic. During this epidemic, Mather contacts Boylston, gets him to variolate tons of people, after this a bomb is thrown into his house, then they decide they need to actually do the work and figure out the statistics. ALL IN 1721!
This does not seem like a long enough time to figure out the actual case-fatality rates, and if it were truly as good as it sounded, then nobody would have bombed the damn reverends house. He would have been praised as a bringer of life, or whatever.
The New World Vaccination
So from all of this unmentioned backstory that I have outlined here, variolation was brought to the New World about 70 years before Jenner came along with vaccination (variolation evolved!) and the only reason the name was changed into something other than variolation, was simply to usher it into a new era.
To disguise it. I’m sure the older population faught kicking and screaming to the new generation and described the horrors of variolation. But under this new name, the younger generation welcomed it with open arms.
In the next in this series I will outline the MANY instances where mandatory vaccination has been enforced around the
globe world, and the repurcusions that came along with it.
Maybe we can actually prevent this from happening again, we are at a crucial point in history with all this coronavirus nonsense…
