Reminiscences of America's Children in the 1930s as Compared with Today, and the Possible Role
of Vaccines in Causing Retrogressive Changes
(Written in Support of "Vaccination News" and its donation
program) Harold Buttram, M.D.
As one of today's senior citizens who grew up in a Midwestern state in the
1930s, and as a doctor who has treated many children, I may have a special
vantage point of time and experience in regard to the changes that have
taken place in the health of America's children since the relatively
innocent times of the 1930s. At summer camps in the New Mexico Mountains
that I was fortunate to attend, no boy had allergies, none was on
medication, and no boy was ever sick with the common ailments of today. It
was much the same in schools. I don't recall ever seeing a child with easily
recognized behaviors now described as hyperactivity (ADHD) or autism.
Today in stark contrast, approximately one third of our
youngsters are afflicted with the 4-A Disorders (Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and
Allergies), as described and documented by Dr. Kenneth Bock.(1) School
budgets are being strained to the breaking points in providing special
education classes for autistic and learning disabled children. Allergy
problems are proliferating, as indicated by long lines of children at school
nursing stations for their noontime medications.
Could today's infant and childhood vaccine programs, with their
steadily increasing numbers of vaccines, be a contributory cause of this
ominous health trend? As reflected in the U.S. Congressional Hearings (1999
to Dec., 2004) on issues of vaccine safety, in which major deficiencies in
vaccine safety testing were disclosed, it is a real possibility that
vaccines may be one of the major, if not the major cause of this trend.(2)
Epidemiologic surveys from four widely separated geographic
areas found that fully vaccinated children had significantly more allergic
disorders than those with limited or no vaccines.(3-6)
Although public health officials remain in denial about a causal relation
between the mercurial vaccine preservative, Thimerosal, and the current
epidemic of autism, the facts remain irrefutable. Thimerosal has now been
removed from most vaccines, but in the 1990s, when the incidence of
childhood autism peaked, infants commonly received up to 100-times the safe
dose of mercury (according to current EPA and FDA standards) at 2 months
age, again at 4 months, and again at 6 months.(7)
Although Thimerosal has been largely removed from vaccines (with
exception of some flu and most tetanus booster vaccines), new cases of
autism are still emerging. The probable reason may be the ever-increasing
number of vaccines given during infancy.(8) From the standpoint of infants'
immune systems, giving seven or eight vaccines together on three separate
occasions during infancy might be comparable with the infants' immune
systems being faced with seven or eight diseases at the same time. There is
little wonder that their immune as well as nervous systems commonly run
amuck under such challenges.
A survey commissioned by Generation Rescue compared vaccinated and
unvaccinated in nine counties in Oregon and California. Among more than
9,000 boys age 4-17, the survey found vaccinated boys were two and a half
times (155%) more likely to have neurological disorders than their
unvaccinated peers. For older vaccinated boys in the 11-17 age bracket, the
results were even more pronounced, with 158% more likely to have
neurological disorders, 317% more likely to have ADHD, and 112% more likely
to have autism.(9)
According to this observer, it appears that we are undergoing an
unprecedented national tragedy with no end in sight. How could this possibly
To answer this question I will cite two little-noted studies published many
years ago. The first was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in
1984.(10) In this study a significant though temporary drop of T-helper
lymphocytes was found in 11 healthy adults following routine tetanus booster
vaccinations. Special concern rests in the fact that in four of the eleven
subjects their T-lymphocytes fell to levels seen in active AIDS patients. If
this was the result of a single vaccine in healthy adults, it is sobering to
think of possible consequences from today's multiple vaccines routinely
administered to infants. And yet, to the best of my knowledge, this study
has never been repeated. In a similar fashion A.L.Low (Chicago, 1955)
performed before and after EEGs on 83 children before and after pertussis
immunization.(11) In two of these children he found abnormal EEGs without
other signs or symptoms of abnormal reactions.
These two studies, showing clear evidence that significant immunologic and
neurological consequences can take place even with single vaccines, do not
constitute proof of harm from vaccines, but they are important clues. What
they do prove is an ongoing pattern of negligence of many years in following
up on these and other similar studies.
Almost totally lacking until now, the great need is for definitive
before-and-after tests specifically designed to search for possible adverse
effects of vaccines on the neurological and immune systems as well as
genetics of our children, and in finding adverse effects, to make
appropriate safety modifications in vaccine programs. Based on personal
experience, alerting authorities to this need has been like trying to start
a fire with wet kindling. Yet our very survival as a society may be involved
in this specific issue
In my opinion, the time is long overdue for a total rethinking and
redirecting of current childhood vaccine programs. Until the safety of such
programs can be assured by thorough and dependable safety testing, any
further mandating of childhood vaccines will remain morally and ethically

Vaccine-associated immune-mediated hemolytic anemia in the dog.
Duval D, Giger U.
Department of Clinical Studies, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of
Pennsylvania, Philadelphia 19104-6010, USA.
Vaccination has been incriminated as a trigger of immune-mediated hemolytic anemia
(IMHA) in dogs and in people, but evidence to support this association has been
lacking. In a controlled retrospective study, idiopathic IMHA was identified in 58 dogs
over a 27-month period. When compared with a randomly selected control group of 70
dogs (presented for reasons other than IMHA) over the same period, the distribution of
cases versus time since vaccination was different (P < .05). Fifteen of the dogs (26%)
had been vaccinated within 1 month (mean, 13 days; median, 14 days; range, 1 to 27
days) of developing IMHA (P < .0001), whereas in the control group no marked increase
in frequency of presentation was seen in the first month after vaccination. The dogs with
IMHA were divided into 2 groups based on time since vaccination: the vaccine IMHA
group included dogs vaccinated within 1 month of developing IMHA; the nonvaccine
IMHA group included dogs that developed IMHA more than 1 month after vaccination.
The recently vaccinated dogs with IMHA (vaccine IMHA group) had significantly lower
platelet counts (P < .05) and a trend towards increased prevalence of intravascular
hemolysis and autoagglutination when compared with the nonvaccine IMHA group.
Similar mortality rates were seen in teh vaccine IMHA group (60%) and the nonvaccine
IMHA group (44%), with the majority of fatalities (> 75%) occurring in the first 3 weeks
after presentation. Persistent autoagglutination was a negative prognostic indicator for
survival in both groups (P < .05). Presence of icterus and hyperbilirubinemia were
negative prognostic indicators for survival in the nonvaccine IMHA group (P < .0001 and
P < .01, respectively) but not in the vaccine IMHA group. In the recently vaccinated
dogs, combination vaccines from various manufacturers against canine distemper,
adenovirus type 2, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus (DHLPP) were
involved in each case. Vaccines against rabies virus, Bordetella spp, coronavirus,
and Lyme Borrelia were administrated concomitantly to some dogs. This study
provides the first clinical evidence for a temporal relationship of
vaccine-associated IMHA in the dog.
