EBM and vaccines #AskforEvidence

Des, I agree and with reference to your last paragraph, it is even worse, this kind of research is actually deliberately, consistently not done in the field of vaccinations.

The improvement of malnutrition, poor hygiene, clean drinking water and overcrowding was essential in improving mortality and morbidity with reference to infectious diseases, as illustrated in the following two articles: and

Public Health consistently do not mention this but consistently instead have celebrated vaccines as The Panacea.

Public Health and the WHO and Unicef consistently are not doing "vaccine cohorts on harm" to check whether the endemic increase of non-communicable diseases (NCD) such as asthma, ADHD and ASD is due to vaccines. Of course research with cohorts that checks for harm are the only way to investigate whether mass intervention programs do more harm in the long term.

Doctors have been hypnotised into complying with increasing vaccination regimes, an other incentive is that their salary is dependent on vaccinations.

The disaster with reference to vaccines affecting the microbiome and the transfer of the epigenetic NCD effects to the offspring is too obvious to miss but these possible outcomes are incredibly not taken into consideration and even dissed by the medical establishment that increasingly aims to force compliance.
