The suspicions of these doctors were first aroused in 1912 when a post-morten on a recently vaccinated boy of 15 years revealed encephalo-myelitis. In December, 1922, a 9-year-old girl came to necropsy with a diagnosis of tubercular meningitis. However the microscope revealed, no lesions except recent vaccination scabs, glandular inflammation in the region of vaccination and slight changes in the central nervous system. Brain and cord presented the same peculiar changes as those found in the boy ten years previously.
"Other cases," says the Lancet, "were now quickly recognized one in a man of 21, and the rest in girls of 7, 12, 15, and 22 respectively. All these patients except one girl died in the course of an acute attack of encephalo-myelitis complicated by broncho-pneumonia."
As an example of how these seven cases proceeded the case of the woman 22 years of age will suffice. She was vaccinated while and infant and again on November 28th, 1922. Seven days thereafter she developed a severe headache and other symptoms. On the 10th and 12 days she was drowsy and had high fever. On the 13th day she became semi-comatose and on the 14th day she died.
The Lancet for October 9, 1926, states that in Holland, during the period from January 1, 1924, to July 1, 1925: "35 cases, of which 15 were fatal, occurred of Encephalitis following vaccination after an interval of 10 to 30 days," had elapsed.
The Lancet further declares in the article previously quoted from: "Investigation of the possible path of infection gave negative results--Close examination of the vaccinal areas and regional glands yielded but little information, since the histological changes appeared to be essentially similar to those in a control case, a recently vaccinated boy killed in an accident."
This means, reader, that the ordinary and regular course of mischief pursued by vaccination may easily result in the production of these diseases. The Lancet further says: "Though the path of infection cannot be traced, the authors would appear to have ample justification for concluding, in view of the close resemblance between the clinical histories, the uniformity of the pathological findings, and the absence of similar cases independent of vaccination, that vaccination was a definite causal factor and no chance coincidence." (Italics mine.).
In the year 1927 when Mr. Marky and Senator Love debated on vaccination, we exhibited on the platform, a little girl whose body was frightfully twisted, greatly emaciated and paralyzed as a result of vaccination. With the smooth sagacity of the suave politician and with resort to the ancient medical subterfuges of "secondary infection" and "intercurrent malady," Dr. Love attempted to make the audience believe the child's troubles were due to something other than vaccination. But an "intercurrent affection" is mere bunk. It never existed outside the medical mind. The Lancet had formerly held to the same theory with regard to such cases as cited above. Referring in its issue of August 1, 1925, to the numerous cases on the continent, it declares: "Experiment and pathological research have shown that this form of the disease is not due to the virus of Jenner's vaccine" . . . . "There was a latent infection" and "vaccination merely hatched it out."
"Latent infection" is another subterfuge that has long served the blundering medical profession when tuberculosis, syphilis and leprosy follow vaccination. But the end of this subterfuge is drawing near. The Lancet has unsaid what it declared in the quotation above. It declares: "Similar cases independent of vaccination were not observed at the same time nor any other time. The authors give cogent reasons against the assumption that the post-vaccinal cases described by them and by workers abroad are merely examples of poliomyelitis, (inflammation of the gray matter of the spinal cord) or encephalitis lethargica (sleeping sickness), in which vaccination was an immaterial accident."
It declares that encephalo-myelitis following vaccination always exhibits more extensive lesions than those of sleeping sickness and that "histologically, the inflammation in ordinary cases of poliomyelitis (infantile paralysis) differs conspicuously from that following vaccination.
In 1923, 1924 and 1925 great efforts were made in England to have everybody vaccinated. Thousands of vaccinations were performed. There occurred a great increase in the cases of Encephalitis-Lethargica. In 1924, there were 6,296 cases of this and similar affections reported in England and Wales, with a population of 38,746,000; or 162 cases per million of population. In Liverpool, with a population of 836,000 there was reported 257 such cases; or 306 cases per million of population. Liverpool was fifty per cent better vaccinated than the average of England and Wales, and had almost 100% more Encephalitis. I presume this was due to an "intercurrent affection," or a "latent infection," or to a "secondary infection."
