Vaccines: Prevention or Curse?

Dr. Shiv Chopra, Health Canada whistle blower and author of Corrupt to the Core: Memoirs of a Health Canada Whistleblower

Anyone knowing the basics of biology should know:

1. That all vaccines by their very nature are antigens and that every antigen by defintion must be a foreign protein or a substance attached to one's own or some other foreign protein;

2. That no foreign protein can be absorbed into the blood stream unless it is digested in the alimentary canal into its basic amino acids;

3. That it is these amino acids which after being absorbed into the blood stream are reconstituted into one's own proteins and it is these proteins which distinguishes every being of existence into self and non-self.

4. That any interference or tampering with these laws of existence can bring calamity to the being in which it occurs such as by causing auto-immune conditions like autism, etc.

This is precisely what may be occurring due to vaccine injections in people. Surprisingly, I am presently the only scientist who is reminding about this phenomenon of existence. If I am wrong I would like to be corrected by those claiming to possess better knowledge of same.

The foreign proteins in vaccines originate from not only the infectious organisms against which one wishes to produce infection-fighting antibodies but also the artificial media in which these organisms are grown. Contained in such media may include one or more of the following materials: bovine serum, horse serum, chicken egg, monkey kidney, insect cells and even human fetal cells.

Apart from the foreign proteins, vaccines may also contain other harmful substances, including mercury, aluminum, formalin, oily adjuvants, etc., plus untold number of stray viruses with the potential to cause cancer, HIV, serum-hepatitis, and so on.

Meanwhile, evidence indicates that except for smallpox, no other infectious disease, e.g. tuberculosis, cholera, typhoid, anthrax, measles, mumps, rubella, DPT, polio, influenza and others,  has been eradicated; and that this continues to be so despite the decades of vaccinations against each of these diseases. Also, during the same period, the incidence of many previously uncommon diseases, such as autism, diabetes, allergies, and cancer, has been increasing in pandemic proportions.

I feel that it is time to demand a moratorium on, at least, the compulsory vaccinations for children, health care professionals and military personnel until such time that these issues are reviewed and discussed in an open and transparent manner with the due involvement of the public.

what if there is no VIRUS? what now?

In my view any attempts to interfere with life processes need first to humbly recognise that we humans are just one part amongst the billions that make up the mutually interpendent web of life. Thus anything that we do needs to be founded upon and informed by a profound respect for life in its entirety. Without that we have already started off on the wrong foot. Sadly much of modern science seems to operate off that wrong foot.

This is in response to two questions by Oliver Penrose. 1. The point to note is that Nature does not permit any protein ingested by mouth to enter one's blood stream without first being digested into its basic amino acids while when proteins contained in vaccines are given by injection they by-pass the natural prohibition to enter one's blood stream and which confuses the body to react in ways which can cause auto-immune conditions like autism, etc. 2. Evidence indicates that presently lower incidence of bacterial infections such as diphtheria, whooping cough, is not due to vaccination against these infections but due to better hygiene, antibiotic treatment, etc., after World War II.

Oliver: To my understanding our bodies go through a lot in order to prevent illness from reaching the blood stream. So basically this theory puts forth that by introducing a virus or pathogen, via vaccine, directly into the blood stream we are actually programming our bodies to react to non-pathogenic cells like eggs (flu vaccine) and milk (DTap vaccine) and even our own human cells when aborted fetal cells are used. I also find it persuasive that the CDC details on flu vaccines and vital statistics show an increase in flu death since the inception of the flu vaccine. Donald indicates the interview with Barbra Loe Fisher, which is excellent, she also talks a great length, in her writing and interviews, about the toxic comments and attitudes regarding the questions and concerns about vaccine safety. I myself have seen Nazi like commentary about quarantines and identifying bands and tattoos for those opposed and questioning vaccination. Something is going to break at some point. I would think it an exciting time for this science if it were not my children on the front line.

Let me recommend the interview with Barb Loe Fisher, Founder of the National Vaccine Information Center ( She is an authority on this matters and she reaches about the same conclusion as Dr Chopra. She dares to ask the question: Why are so many children in the USA chronically ill? (the country with the highest number of vaccinations for children)

Please excuse my ignorance, as non-biologist, but I don't understand this article. Surely, when I am inoculated by injection against pneumonia or influenza, the foreign protein is put into a place where it will go into the bloodstream. Why do you say it has to go into the alimentary canal first? Concerning the statement that no infectious disease other than smallpox has been eradicated --- I don't dispute this, but diseases that were much feared when I was a child in the 1930's, such as diphtheria and polio, are now so rare that nobody ever thinks about them, and presumably we have inoculations to thank for this -- or if not, what is the explanation?

Donald asks why our children are so critically ill. It seems Americans so concerned with control and good intent believe that we can feed our children controlled food, manage and control disease, recruit them to manage and control the world, at some kind of value added expense to our own existence. Seems fallacious to me and some are beginning to realize how damning these actions are. First to ourselves of course, then hopefully to understanding the damage to others.

Pleomorphic organisms .. the shape changers. The buzz on the net is that these vaccinations produce mini strokes in the brain and other organ systems in the body. As one author has stated that medical science has been following the wrong theory (Pasteur) for 200 years .. This time its not the Phlogiston theory its the big one .. What a great tragedy for mankind. ------------------------- "On the other hand, it seemed to him high time to utter an energetic protest against the attempts that are made to proclaim the problems of research as actual facts, the opinions of scientists as established science, and thereby to set in a false light, before the eyes of the less informed masses, not merely the methods of science, but also its whole position in regard to the intellectual life of men and nations. Let us hope that men of science in England also will not fail to examine this most serious question, whether the authority of Science will not be better secured, if it confines itself strictly to its own province, than if it undertakes to master the whole view of nature by the premature generalizing of theoretical combinations". RUD.VIRCHOW. Berlin, February 11th, 1878.

Ivor this is being reported on local news here is the link to the news site: I just passed this information and other publications from JAMA to 2 parents whose daughters experienced seizures after Gardasil vaccine. Their docs didn't have any of this info.

Susan .. yes that is part of the tragedy .. good doctors who have tried to do the best for their patients within the confines of the cage that they are kept .. and of course there are those who bravely struck but in turn were struck down by the system. We have all been severely wounded and perhaps for many generations. But truth cannot be ultimately denied .. we may yet see a golden age of Medicine and Science .. remember Hippocrates and keep the faith.

I am always left with confusion about how some science is ignored and how all vaccine science that does not show efficacy and safety in all aspects is ridiculed and denounced viciously. As a non-scientist I have tried to muddle through this argument by finding a middle ground and understanding, without much success. The hypothesis that is put forth above is a sound argument and should be explored further.

There was a well written report by a Canadian author that vaccines are really VERY DANGEROUS to humans, Pls continue your good work.

Chopra's statement is the most profound questioning of vaccines yet, challenging the very idea of inserting foreign antigens into the bloodstream (normally, they are broken down in the digestive track). For an excellent article on polio. And there was an 18-fold decline in infectious diseases long prior to vaccination. Vaccines, though they have not been tested in any serious way for safety or efficacy, though they can kill, have become a mandated commercial product, with more and more being added to the list. Even with deaths, they are still mandated. They have also been used surreptitiously to sterilize and worse as David Rothscum's work and that of Horowitz, Graves, and others like Ed Haslam, details. Haslam's book, "Dr. Mary's Monkey," on a research lab at Tulane working on polio is a disturbing look at the connection between vaccines, diseases, and bioweapons.

This is not a debate where it's either black or white. The fact is that all vaccines cause side effects. The sicker a person is the more the side effects. Chicken pox vaccine for example can be deadly in people on steroids. The amount of side effects will be proportional to one's level of health. The official response to arguments against vaccine is that the side effects are preferable to the disease. What if you were told your vaccine would cause permanent eczema(as is the case with small pox vaccine)would you still do it if there was eczema in your family? Would you like to have to use steroid creams to overcome the itching that will remain uncured because there is no cure for eczema? Are you a parent who likes to see children grow to be healthy? The risk of side effects increases with each additional vaccine. More complications set in as the child is bombarded with other vaccines, all with similar potential for dangers such as Arrhythmia(Diptheria vaccine), Squint in the eye(polio vaccine), Hay fever(TB vaccine) and the list goes on. Vaccines are there to prevent death(at a price) not to keep you healthy. This is not an hypothetical argument, real people out there are getting real side effects. The worse is when you are not told of the risk or if in the case of side effects that you will have to live with the consequences, such as brain damage, and have no compensation for it. I have 26 years experience treating side effects of vaccines and I applaude Dr Chopra for his stance.
