Vaccine Quotes from the Outside-In

By Steve Wynkoop,D.C.

“Up to 90 percent of the total decline in the death rate of children between 1860-1965 because of whooping cough, scarlet fever, diphtheria, and measles occurred before the introduction of immunizations and antibiotics.” – Dr Archie Kalokerinos, M.D.

“I’ve been practicing for 40 years, and in the past 10 years the children have been sicker than ever.” – Dr Doris J.Rapp, pediatric allergist.

“I once believed in Jenner; I once believed in Pasteur. I believed in vaccination. I believed in vivisection. But I changed my views as the result of hard thinking.” – Dr Hadwen

“Measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and the whole panoply of childhood diseases are a far less serious threat than having a large fraction (say 10%) of a generation afflicted with learning disability and/or uncontrollable aggressive behavior because of an impassioned crusade for universal vaccination… Public policy regarding vaccines is fundamentally flawed. It is permeated by conflicts of interest. It is based on poor scientific methodology (including studies that are too small, too short, and too limited in populations represented), which is, moreover, insulated from independent criticism.

The evidence is far too poor to warrant overriding the independent judgments of patients, parents, and attending physicians, even if this were ethically or legally acceptable.” – Association of American Physicians & Surgeons

“If you want the truth on vaccination you must go to those who are not making anything out of it. If doctors shot at the moon every time it was full as a preventive of measles and got a shilling for it, they would bring statistics to prove it was a most efficient practice, and that the population would be decimated if it were stopped.” – Dr Allinson

“To pass our examinations and get qualified, we must accept what our teachers tell us. In other words, we must cultivate what Josh Billings called “A well-balanced mind — one that will balance in any direction required.” – Major R. Austin M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P

“The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization… There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease.” – Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

“I think that no person would permit anybody to get close to them with an inoculation if they would really know how they are made, what they carry, what has been lied to them about and what the real percent of danger is of contracting such a disease which is minimal.” – Dr Eva Snead

“There are significant risks associated with every immunization and numerous contraindications that may make it dangerous for the shots to be given to your child…

There is growing suspicion that immunization against relatively harmless childhood diseases may be responsible for the dramatic increase in autoimmune diseases since mass inoculations were introduced. These are fearful diseases such as cancer, leukemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, lupus erthematosus, and the Guillain-Barre syndrome.” – Dr Mendelsohn, M.D.

“Probably 20% of American children, one youngster in five — suffers from “development disability.” This is a stupefying figure! We have inflicted it on ourselves; “development disabilities” are nearly always generated by encephalitis. And the primary cause of encephalitis in the USA and other industrialized countries is the childhood vaccination program. To be specific, a large proportion of the millions of US children and adults suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia, and other shoots or branches of the hydraheaded entity called “development disabilities”, owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases.” – Harris Coulter

“It is pathetic and ludicrous to say we ever vanquished smallpox with vaccines, when only 10% of the population was ever vaccinated.” – Dr Glen Dettman

“There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them, anyway.” – Dr. J. Anthony Morris (formerly Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the FDA) @ 7:49 am | Article ID: 969461342

ADIO Steve Wynkoop,D.C.

“There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good.” – Dr Anthony Morris

“There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age.” – Paul Frame, M.D., Journal of Family Practice

“Official data shows that large scale vaccination has failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection” – Dr Sabin, developer of Polio vaccine.

“All vaccination has the effect of directing the three values of the blood into or toward the zone characteristics of cancer and leukaemia… Vaccines do predispose to cancer and leukaemia.” – Professor L. Vincent – founder of Bioelectronics

“Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio Vaccines, being made from monkey kidney tissue, has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukaemia in this country.” – Dr F. Klenner, M.D.

“Even to this day, the government, the FDA is refusing to use the sophisticated biotechnology to evaluate the contaminants in the vaccines such as the polio vaccines that they are administering. I think (people) would be appalled that some of the vaccines that are being currently being used are still laced with viruses,” – Leonard Horowitz., D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H.

“Provocation polio. That is the truth about those outbreaks of polio. And I offer a well considered personal opinion that polio is a man made disease.” -Viera Scheibner Ph.D.

“As well consult a butcher on the value of vegetarianism as a doctor on the worth of vaccination.” – Bernard Shaw

“For a pediatrician to attack what has become the “bread and butter” of pediatric practice is equivalent to a priest denying the infallibility of the pope. – Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

“The vaccinations are not working, and they are dangerous.. We should be working with nature.” – Lendon H.Smith, M.D.

“The decline in infectious diseases in developed countries had nothing to do with vaccinations, but with the decline in poverty and hunger.” – Dr Buchwald, M.D.

“I was working in one of the oldest lung illness treatment centres in Germany, and just by chance, I looked at the files of those people who had fallen ill during the first German epidemic of smallpox, in 1947… We had always been told that the smallpox vaccination would protect against smallpox. And now I could verify, thanks to the files and papers, that all of those who had fallen ill had been vaccinated. This was very upsetting for me.” – Dr Buchwald, M.D.

“It forced me to look into the question of vaccination further, and the further I looked the more shocked I became. I found that the whole vaccine business was indeed a gigantic hoax. Most doctors are convinced that they are useful, but if you look at the proper statistics and study the instances of these diseases you will realize that this is not so… My final conclusion after forty years or more in this business [medicine] is that the unofficial policy of the World Health Organization and the unofficial policy of the ‘Save the Children’s Fund’ and… [other vaccine promoting] organizations is one of murder and genocide. I cannot see any other possible explanation. You cannot immunize sick children, malnourished children, and expect to get away with it. You’ll kill far more children than would have died from natural infection.” – Dr Kalokerinos

“It was similar with the measles vaccination. They went through Africa, South America and elsewhere, and vaccinated sick and starving children… They thought they were wiping out measles, but most of those susceptible to measles died from some other disease that they developed as a result of being vaccinated. The vaccination reduced their immune levels and acted like an infection. Many got septicaemia, gastro-enteritis, etcetera, or made their nutritional status worse and they died from malnutrition. So there were very few susceptible infants left alive to get measles. It’s one way to get good statistics, kill all those that are susceptible, which is what they literally did.” – Dr Kalokerinos, M.D.

From The Poisoned Needle by Eleanor McBean:

Inoculate the Doctors
Inoculate for small-pox
Inoculate for mumps;
Inoculate for typhoid
For colds and nervous slumps;
Inoculate with cow pus
And germs of every brand
Inoculate with monkey glands
To make us young again.
But one fine day the laity
Will move in self-defense
To inoculate the doctors
With a little Common Sense

Time To Give Back

When we go to chiropractic seminars, gatherings, conventions and people recognize us or have heard from others who we are and are pointed out to them, people will come, introduce themselves and ask, when is the next mission? They will immediately provide us a business card, which we take appreciatively, and they say, “I want to go on the next one!” or “Please let me know when the next one is.” It is indeed wonderful to feel the pride and joy knowing that what we are doing on these missions has made so much impact that word has gotten around and that people long to participate in this humanitarian endeavor.

Lina Ocon

For the last three months we have been working and organizing our 8th Chiropractic Mission to Panama. Just to write this, this moment, 8th, is to feel tremendous pride. It is to take into consideration that our first mission was back in April of 1997, and that since then we have continued taking the wonders of chiropractic to people, people that would otherwise have continued suffering from a long list of ills, depending on pills, potions, lotions and god only knows what else. It is to see their smiling faces, their tearful goodbyes, and their heartfelt requests that we return soon. It is to know that they know what the importance of an adjustment is. It is to see glowing doctors, changed forever because of the forever changes they have made on fellow men’s lives.

This or should I say these reasons have always been our motivation and inspiration. They have always been the all powerful force that has moved us to work so many hours, make so many phone calls, send so many faxes, sacrifice so much valuable time from our practices or with our families in order to make these missions happen like they do, well organized. Organized in a fashion to ensure success, inspiration, motivation, passion, and an incomparable experience from which all involved benefit.


It is due to all of these reasons described that these “sacrifices” are so worth it. How can you not continue when you see blind who can now see, deaf who can now hear, children that smile or look up to see their parents for the first time in their lives. Too see people who tell you that they are now able to sleep, to dream, after not having been able to for years. To be allowed into schools, orphanages, homes for the elderly, not just to educate but to adjust all the children, adults and staff. To hear that the “last wish” of a “terminally ill” man as he lay on his “death bed” in a hospital is to be seen by the “Chiropractors from the United States” (as they refer to us) AND to be let in, as Chiropractors, by the hospital to provide an adjustment! To speak to a woman who only a few hours earlier had been set on taking her own life due to chronic pain which nobody had been able to help her with, yet decides to take one last chance after seeing an interview with a chiropractor on television. She is adjusted, and what happens, another life is changed due to the miracle they call “Quiropractica”. Once again we see the power of a single adjustment.

Isn’t this reason enough to want to pick up the phone now and make reservations on whatever airline will get you down there? Reason enough to start packing and arrive in a country where the people are screaming for us? Reason enough to arrive in a country where we understand we may not get financial compensation however do know and understand that the payment of hugs, smiles, prayers and “gracias” is worth so much more than the money could ever do?

Luis Ocon, D.C.

Isn’t this the best way to give back to chiropractic? To that wonderful profession that allows us to have a house, a car, an office, vacations etc…

Since 1997 C.R.E.W. (Chiropractors Restoring Energy Worldwide) has been dedicated to doing just this. To give from the heart — with the hands in countries where there either is no chiropractic or it is very limited. In countries where people go to sleep and awaken subluxated. In countries where people value the adjustment as if it were gold instead of just taking it for granted as so many people do.

Today, C.R.E.W. makes a call to you. We ask for your participation, and should your heart decide to participate in the October 14th to the 22nd mission call us at (831) 424-4537. We need you there.

Love and Light,

Dr. Daniel David Palmer – The Father of Chiropractic

The following information is a synopsis of chiropractic’s rich and colorful history. The basic outline and data is derived from a text by Walter Wardwell, PhD., entitled, “Chiropractic: History and Evolution of a New Profession” Published by Mosby, 1993.

The Early Years… D.D. Palmer
The first chiropractic adjustment was performed in Davenport, Iowa in the year 1895 by a man named Daniel David Palmer. D.D. Palmer was a frontier renaissance man. During his lifetime, Palmer would be a school teacher, a farmer — developing a new variety of raspberry, which he called “Sweet Home” — a grocer and eventually practicing as a “Magnetic Healer”* in Davenport for a number of years prior to founding chiropractic.

*Contrary to what its name suggests, magnetic healing had nothing to do with magnets. Rather it was a cross between massage and meridian therapies–which is based upon the concepts of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Magnetic healing rose up as an alternative to main stream medicine at the end of the civil war. In 1895 it was still common for medical doctors to use blood letting as a method for curing disease.

DD Palmer

D.D. Palmer’s own words describing his magnetic healing practice…
“In 1886 I began as a business. Although I practiced under the name of magnetic, I did not slap or rub, as others. I questioned many M.D.s as to the cause of disease. I desired to know why such a person had asthma, rheumatism, or other afflictions. I wished to know what differences there were in two persons that caused on to have certain symptoms called disease which his neighbor living under the same conditions did not have…In my practice of the first 10 years which I named magnetic, I treated nerves, followed and relieved them of inflammation. I made many good cures, as many are doing today under a similar method.”

As the above quotation states, Palmer was interested in finding the true cause(s) of disease. He wanted to know why two people who lived in the same house, drank the same water, breathed the same air and often had the same parents, could have two dramatically different constitutions, one being healthy and free of disease and the other sickly. Palmer felt that there must be something other than environmental factors influencing an individuals health. His theory, was that this internal factor was the function of the nervous system. On September 18, 1895, D.D. Palmer would have the chance to prove his theory.

“Harvey Lillard a janitor in the Ryan Block, where I had my office, had been so deaf for 17 years that he could not hear the racket of a wagon on the street or the ticking of a watch. I made inquiry as to the cause of his deafness and was informed that when he was exerting himself in a cramped, stooping position, he felt something give way in his back and immediately became deaf. An examination showed a vertebrae racked from its normal position. I reasoned that if the that vertebra was replaced, the man’s hearing should be restored. With this object in view, a half-hour’s talk persuaded Mr. Lillard to allow me to replace it. I racked it into position by using the spinous process as a lever and soon the man could hear as before. There was nothing “accidental” about this, as it was accomplished with an object in view, and the result expected was obtained. There was nothing “crude” about this adjustment; it was specific, so much so that no Chiropractor has equaled it.”

Palmer felt that Lillard’s hearing loss was due to a blockage of the spinal nerves which control the inner ear. This nerve blockage, in Palmer’s estimation, was caused by a irritation of the spinal nerves by a misaligned vertebrae. When Palmer corrected the misalignment by pushing the vertebrae back into place, the nerve pathways were reopened and thus Lillard’s hearing was restored. Today we know that the mechanism involved with spinal misalignments (The Vertebral Subluxation) is much more complicated than originally postulated by Palmer. However, Palmer’s basic concept of nervous system interference adversely effecting health has held true over the last 105 years.
The term “chiropractic” was first coined by D.D. Palmer’s close friend, the Reverend Samuel H. Weed. The term chiropractic was taken form the two Greek words:

Cheir (Chiro), Meaning “Hand”
Praxis (Practic), Meaning “Practice”
Thus chiropractic means “Done by Hand”

America Says NO To Ritalin

Class action suits were filed in California and New Jersey on Wednesday, alleging that the pharmaceutical manufacturer of Ritalin along with the American Psychiatric Association, conspired to create the disease attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in order to sell more of the drug, according to several news sources.

Also according to reports, on Thursday, the chairman of the US House Judiciary Committee asked that there be a government probe of Ritalin abuse in the nation’s schools. Rep. Henry J. Hyde stated that in 1996, 10% to 12% of all American school-age boys were prescribed Ritalin, according to reports.

Some article Highlights:
In 1999 more than 9 million Ritalin prescriptions were filled.
Ninety percent of all Ritalin is sold in the United States.
The health of millions of children is at stake because they are taking a drug that they do not need.
Lawyers say they will seek billions of dollars in damages.

It’s about time America and the rest of the world Says NO to Ritalin. It’s time to stop needlessly drugging our children.

Chiropractic… Bigger than Religion?

B.J. Palmer said that chiropractic was bigger than medicine, bigger than religion. In fact, he stated “Chiropractic is the biggest idea I know of.”

This month we celebrate one hundred and five years of chiropractic. Next month, two California chiropractors will begin their journey towards worldwide recognition and acclaim as a result of anchoring themselves to a principle so many have held so close these past 105 years.

Let’s begin with Michael.
Michael Shalhoub, D.C. is not your ordinary kind of guy, in fact you may say he is bit of an abrasive, hard core, chiropractic zealot who has a message to share with the world.

Michael is dedicated. He is dedicated to his office, to his patients, to his community, to his health, and to delivering chiropractic. His office – Mission Chiropractic, has a strict policy when it comes to new patients. Not only must you attend the healthcare class before beginning care, your spouse must attend as well.

Michael is not the kind of chiropractor that tells you what he thinks you want to hear, he tells you what you need to hear, he tells you the truth.

A new patient comes in for care, they must bring their spouse in for the healthcare class, no exceptions. The spouse is Dr. Robert Anthony Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. Still, no exceptions. Dr. Michael begins to preach the message of chiropractic, Dr. Robert is not interested. Dr. Michael continues to tell the truth about chiropractic… and at some moment, something happens to Dr. Robert.

As a result, Dr. Robert gets a chiropractic examination, and gets adjusted. Dr. Robert’s wife gets adjusted. Dr. Robert returns with his children, his children are checked and adjusted, the whole family is now under care. Dr. Robert Schuller has discovered chiropractic.

Douglas Di Siena, D.C. vibrates in a harmonic frequency which is probably why the name sounds so appealing. Douglas is an incredible chiropractor. He is a mentor, a leader, a father, a husband, a friend, and a Christian. Douglas and Michael together, head up the Orange County Chiropractic Philosophy Society. Doug is also the Southern California Regional Director for the ICA. You would not think he would have time for anything else.

For those of you that don’t know, Dr. Robert Anthony Schuller is co host of the “Hour of Power,” the most widely watched religious program in America, and is heir to the Crystal Cathedral ministry. Dr. Douglas meets Dr. Robert and they join forces. Just imagine the possibilities…

October 2000, Harper Collins, one of the world’s leading book publishers in America, having 43 books on The New York Times bestseller list in 1999, will be releasing a new book titled: Possibility Living: Add Years to Your Life and Life to Your Years With God’s Health Plan.

Guess who the authors are? That’s right, Robert A. Schuller and Douglas Di Siena. And guess where you can get the book? Your right again! You can order it right here at Planet Chiropractic, where it’s Power Hour Every Hour!

Order The Book!From Harper Collins…
By taking positive steps, such as eating a natural diet, fasting, and praying, you can tap into your innate power for possibility living, remaining open to the voice of God in your life as you nurture your whole being.

“In simple and elegant ways, Dr. Robert A. Schuller and Douglas Di Siena D.C., offer practical steps to create balance in body, mind, and spirit. They open the door to a world of infinite possibilities inside your Being.” — Deepak Chopra

What if Michael Shalhoub did not tell the story?

To Michael Shalhoub and Douglas Di Siena:
Thank you for your efforts and for the message of chiropractic you deliver so passionately. @ 1:17 pm | Article ID: 968962635

Serious Side Effects From Chickenpox Vaccine

Today’s headlines on MSNBC Health read, “FDA deems chickenpox shot safe” and Yahoo’s Health News headlines read “Serious side effects of chickenpox vaccine rare.” Safe with rare serious side effects?

What is a serious side effect? Rashes and fevers as a result of the shot? Odd genetic mutations resulting in coarse monkey hairs growing out of the injection site? How about death, is that serious enough for you?

According to the FDA, further study is needed but as stated in the Yahoo article, “most of the vaccine’s adverse effects are minor.”

Some Highlights according to the articles:
— Fourteen deaths were reported during the chickenpox vaccine study.
— If exposed to chickenpox after being vaccinated against it, one in ten children may still contract chickenpox.
— Some doctors recommend against the vaccine for various reasons.

According to the study, one could say that Chickenpox is usually mild but can be severe in persons with impaired immune systems. One could also say that the side effects from the Chickenpox vaccine are usually mild but can be severe in persons with impaired immune systems.

What controls and coordinates the immune system?

Polio Vaccines, HIV, and the Press

The news feeds began Monday evening, September 11th, 2000. By Tuesday in the U.S., it was front page headline news. “HIV’s link to Polio Vaccine Doubted” read the front page headlines of USA Today. It was on T.V., in the paper, and on the internet.

On the internet, the reports were pushed heavily via Yahoo!, MSNBC,,, and more. Some headlines read as follows:

FOX News: AIDS Experts Say HIV Not Linked to Polio Vaccine

ABC News: The Origins of AIDS – Evidence Does Not Support Polio Vaccine Theory

MSNBC: HIV not tied to polio vaccine

When you read the articles, you may notice the similarities as there are two sources to the articles, the Associated Press and/or Reuters. Read both article sources very carefully.

Some highlights to notice:
The original vaccine was not available for testing since it was used up during the vaccination program.
When asked if the tests definitively rule out the vaccine theory, a New York University School of Medicine microbiologist involved in the study said… “No” (but what do the headlines say?)

Is the Reuters article a plug for the polio vaccine? Is there possibly some other agenda here? Less than twenty-four hours later we see these headlines:

Nando Health/Science: Somalian children targeted for vaccinations

Yahoo! News: UNICEF starts polio vaccinations in Somalia

When the theory was first suggested, it was considered absolute nonsense not even worthy of being looked into and received “little interest” from the scientific community. Why is it now front page news?

NVIC 3-Day Meeting in Arlington, Virginia

From the Gannett News Service comes an article with the headline “Vaccine Safety Advocates Concerned About Immune Systems.”

This past weekend, the National Vaccine Information Center held a three day conference at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

According to the article, vaccine safety advocates decried the almost universal lack of testing infant immune systems before babies receive their shots to see if they’ve been compromised by infection or genetic weakness.

The 3-day event was attended by scientists, academics and doctors which involved open sessions of an international public conference on vaccination. Particular concern was expressed regarding the “possible connection between childhood vaccinations and increasing rates of childhood chronic illness, especially autistic behavior”, according to the article.

The article states that “pediatricians are routinely giving infants and toddlers inoculations even if they have colds, the flu, or other sicknesses, potentially increasing the chances of adverse reactions.” This is occurring even though, “right on the manufacturer’s information sheet packed with the dosage vial is a warning that says do not give the vaccine to immune-compromised or immune-suppressed individuals,” the article further stated.

According to the article, one of the biggest disorders discussed at the conference was the staggering increase in Autism. According to the article, in some areas “the incidence of autism in the 90’s has grown from the national average of about three in 10,000 children to one in 150 children or one in 132 children with California being most effected.
