Vaccines Reduce Natural Immunity

Published on May 4, 2010

This T cell (blue), one of the immune system’s principal means of defense.

An old medical acquaintance of mine Dr. Harold E. Buttram wrote many years ago about a little-noted letter-to-the editor in the New England Journal of Medicine, in 1984, about an interesting German study. In the 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 4 of the subjects, the T-helper lymphocytes fell to levels seen in active AIDS patients. The implications of this study are enormous. In regards to this German study, if this was the result of a single vaccine in healthy adults, it is sobering to think of the possible consequences of multiple vaccines (18 vaccines within the first six months of life at latest count) given to infants with their immature and vulnerable immune systems,” wrote Buttram.

The New England Journal of Medicine study showed that tetanus vaccines cause T-cell ratios to drop below normal, with the greatest decrease after two weeks. Though the altered ratios were found to be similar to those found in AIDS victims the important information from this study has never seen the light of day. “I consider it one of the most flagrant examples of negligence in the area of safety testing in childhood vaccines, the fact that this study has never been repeated,” wrote Buttram.

Literally billions of people around the world have been given tetanus toxoid processed with formaldehyde (as anthrax vaccine is). This might seem incredible when one looks at the fact that during World War Two the American Army reported only six cases of tetanus of which two of the cases were vaccinated. Vaccines in general are medicines against boogie men viruses and it was a dark day when institutionalized medicine fell down this black whole.


Dr. Buttram has been gracious enough to agree to write a forward to my upcoming book Humane Pediatrics. Through the years I have written about pediatrics starting with my books on the dangers and terrors of vaccines and pediatric medicine. It is simply terrible how pediatricians think and how hurtful they act. For instance:

If T helper and other similar types of immune cells have their activity reduced by vaccines then we have a stupendous medical disaster on our hands. And that is exactly what we have. One of the main functions of the T helper cell is to augment or potentiate immune responses by the secretion of specialized factors that activate other white blood cells to fight off infection. Then we have specialized T cells that are important in directly killing certain tumor cells, viral-infected cells and sometimes parasites. Some of these T cells are called natural killer cells and they directly attack and kill cancers such as melanomas, lymphomas and viral-infected cells, most notably herpes and cytomegalovirus-infected cells.

How can medical officials and doctors turn a blind eye to such things and not schedule studies to increase our knowledge of this important area of medicine? Well you know it is impossible for the medical establishment to come up with any study or information that would directly threaten the entire childhood and adult vaccination program. It would be suicidal, so necessary and honest research is deliberately not done. Thus honest medicine was and still is being completely thrown out the window. It’s the same people who justify using neurotic mercury in vaccines as a preservative that are at the heart of this terror. They would rather attack kids and adults’ causing increased incidences of cancer with all the suffering and death implied then be honest and look at the truth.

We certainly think it strange when we read of Americans and now Chinese breaking into schools to stab and shoot at little children but we don’t think so when we read about what is happening to our children at the hands of modern pediatrics.

Many years ago I wrote a chapter called The Rape of Vulnerability. It was an adaptation of an even earlier and most important work of mine from HeartHealth called the Vulnerability of Being. The essence wisdom expressed in that chapter tells us to treasure vulnerability and to do so is the mark of and first law of a pure heart. The following is from The Rape of Vulnerability:

On the day of our birth doctors and nurses, with the willing acceptance and surrender of our parents, plunge cold steel into our flesh and inject a foreign fluid laced with poison and other modified genetic materials that assaults our immune and other critical systems of our bodies. By the time a baby is born their ultra sensitivity keeps them alert to the total environment surrounding their birth. They can feel, and their beings remember in terms of conditioned fear and trust all the attitudes that surround them. It does make a difference to them how they are treated, how they are welcomed into this world. It matters when the doctor becomes impatient and cuts open the mother’s belly, thinking more about money and time than the natural rhythm of mother and infant.

It matters on a being level when cold steel penetrates our tender young body injecting something alien that we are totally defenseless to. It matters the arrogance of the minds of others who violate us in the name of false assumptions, judgments and rationalizations about what is and what is not best for our young lives and what they think is best for society.

There are many things doctors and nurses have traditionally done to rip us away from the pure vulnerability of the moment of our birth, they have hung us upside down and spanked us, taken us away from our mothers before we could bind with them, and shined bright lights in our faces. Making it cold and clinical in operating rooms as opposed to warm and natural in settings that facilitate feelings of safety and security.

But what waits is a quantum level more disturbing to our vulnerability. At the moment of our birth we are confronted with something that holds a threat to our life, with a potential for an early death (for some) for we are injected with nerve toxins that can quickly accumulate and lead to severe neurological damage.

Certainly it is a stress and a hurt that makes us scream to the high heavens but the doctors and nurses smile it off as being normal. Their base line of normality is thrust on our vulnerabilities and often sets the stage for much disruption of health in our very young lives. Babies and young children are totally at the mercy of their environment, they are totally vulnerable.

  • Excellent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too magnificent. I really like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise. I can not wait to read far more from you. This is actually a terrific web site.

  • Sammy Maultsby

    I’m still learning from you, but I’m improving myself. I definitely enjoy reading everything that is posted on your website.Keep the information coming. I liked it

  • Meow

    Recently I took H1N1 vaccine and the following day, i happened to have blood taken for testing. My lymphocytes was below normal minimum range. Could it be due to the vaccine?

    “When the mind is not connected to the heart
    the hands and feet can do the most atrocious things…”

    This is what – time and again – I saw happening during the 17 months
    that my second son was treated (by knife, radiation and chenotherapy)
    for a cancer that he got from a vaccine.
    It all eventually killed him.

  • This is another fantastic article keep up the great work!

  • amicus curiae

    hiya Doc Sircus, well this has upset my applecart:-(
    I was about to get my horse vaccinated against Tetanus. Pat Coleby says to boost the immune system for about 10 days beforehand with Vit C to help protect the system..
    With animals that do live in soil contact and can easily get a puncture wound that may not be seen immediately, I had thought it safer to not risk my mate. Now I am not sure.
    what would you advise? I treat ALL visible abrasions with Iodine, but as I said sometimes you can’t see them ie under a hoof or near the hoofline.
    I know I had a cytokine storm reaction to my last- it did almost kill me(and last ever) Tetanus jab, I also did not need it- the Doc insisted! even though the wound I had from a rusty nail was over 14days past and I had NO tetany signs. I learnt the hard way to say NO very very Loud and firm, but almost too late:-(

    Thank yo.
    Most profound and accurate.
    I am so glad that I receive your articles. I wish that the world was as you would have it be.

  • andy

    Thx for the great article, could you give the full name of the study that found tetanus shot reduces Th cells.

  • VMV

    I agree.
    My mother, who raised nine children and just passed away, used to say she was concerned about the psychological effect on infants and babies when they are given a vaccination. She said that the baby would learn to distrust its mother and other adults.
    My youngest brother got no vaccines as a child, and he was the smartest and healthiest in the family. But my other brother came down with whooping cough after the DPT shot. (However, this was a long time ago, in about 1959, when the whole-cell pertussis vaccine was used.)

    Excellent job. I am here in India started an organisation to fight for the same cause of humanity.
    I would like to work together and support your noble cause.
