Smallpox
by Dr. Vivian Virginia Vetrano
vvvetrano@rionet.cc

A dead disease is being resurrected.  Now the media will have something exciting to talk about everyday and to frighten the benighted American public with.  For whatever reason, the revivification of smallpox is certainly on the current agenda.

 Not too long ago Fox News showed us a picture of a man who was covered with smallpox pustules on his arms, face, legs and abdomen. The pustules were big, black, ugly, scaby and closely compacted.  He looked like he was a monster from some other world.  It was enough to scare me, were it not for the fact that I know that it was drug treatment that caused that ugly picture and not the disease at all.  The cause of those ugly marks was carbolic acid that had been used to kill the supposed germ that caused the eruptive rash.

 Who are the terrorists? The pharmaceutical companies or the Taliban?  Because of what the terrorists may or may not do, the pharmaceutical industry (the largest industry in the world), is gearing us up for mandatory vaccinations, especially for certain people in areas that may be targeted by the terrorists. The authorities claim that we will be safe from terrorists attacks using the pox virus because there are adequate stockpiles of cultivated smallpox viruses in Russia and in the USA to make most all the vaccines "needed."

 It is claimed by medical historians that the vaccination process wiped out smallpox throughout the world.  However, the truth is that compulsory vaccination was abandoned because more deaths were caused by the vaccinations than there were cases of smallpox.  A slight of the hand trick was used to foster the claim that smallpox was eradicated by the vaccination practice.  Everyone who had been vaccinated and who developed smallpox was diagnosed as having chicken pox!

 The doctors who were interviewed on recent television shows admit that the vaccine may cause many serious side-effects and that a certain number of persons will develop painful and sometimes lethal sequelae.  Yet, they advise that it is better to take the chance and be vaccinated in spite of these dangers.

 Edward Jenner, a notorious fake and quack,  is credited with having "discovered" vaccination.  However, it was a practice of many ancient peoples long before his time.  Savage and barbaric tribes in various parts of the world practiced inoculation even before Jenner’s time.  It is conjectured to have begun in India and then spread to Africa and Europe.  Lady Mary Wortley Montague, wife of the British Ambassador to the Ottoman Court in l7l7 introduced the practice to Europe.  But, due to its proven evils, one of which was an increase in smallpox in England, the practice was abolished in l840.

 It is pertinent that James Phipps, the eight year old boy vaccinated by Jenner in l896, died at the age of 20.  He had been re-vaccinated twenty times.  Jenner’s own son who had also been vaccinated more than once died at the young age of twenty-one.  Both succumbed to tuberculosis, a condition that some researchers have linked to the smallpox vaccine.  (Eleanor Mc Bean, The Poisoned Needle, 28,29,66 ).

 According to the medical profession, smallpox or variola is an acute highly infectious and contagious disease characterized by a specific rash.   According to past and present Natural Hygienic practitioners smallpox is primarily a disease brought about by gastrointestinal putrescence.  Fermenting and rotting food in the intestinal tract enervates, and causes increased digestive impairment accompanied by increased systemic toxemia.  The toxins are from the absorption of the fermentation products formed in the intestinal tract.  Since those who overeat, especially on animal products, are enervated, meaning they lack normal nerve function, all the organs of elimination are functioning on a lower physiological level and greater toxicity ensues.  Toxins from decomposing animal foods are highly irritating, so the body has to get rid of them quickly and must use extraordinary means since the organs of elimination are not functioning well.  Therefore, the poisons are carried by the blood to the skin and the body eliminates them in various forms of skin eruptions.

 Smallpox is about as contagious as stumbling over a rock.   Dr. Herbert M. Shelton slept in the same bed with his brother while the latter was in the so-called infectious stage with vesicles all over.  Yet Dr. Shelton did not develop smallpox.

 Smallpox begins with the same symptoms that many acute diseases do; such as chills, fever, backache, and vomiting.  This is indicative of a common cause and a common way to deal with the cause.  The body is a magnificent ecosystem and when it finds abnormal and extraneous substances anywhere within its domain,   it creates a higher temperature, purposely, to overcome the foreign proteins, toxic substances, viruses, bacteria or other microorganisms.  Whatever is upsetting the ecosystem must be corrected by the organism itself.  It needs no alien "cures."  The symptoms should not be "cured."  To suppress these symptoms assures that some other worse problem will develop.

 Some substances, such as an excess of protein putrefactive products, are so toxic that it is urgent to eliminate them immediately.  The papular eruption of smallpox is purposely created and chosen as the correct channel at the time for the elimination of these types of noxious substances.  Furthermore, the body may not have the specific enzymes to biodegrade whatever it is.  Instead of being taken care of by the liver or the kidneys the body chooses to eject them through the skin.   Vicarious eliminations such as this are often natural emergency measures.

 Smallpox begins with chills, fever, backache, headache and vomiting.  A fever of l03 to l04 degrees F is customary.  The high fever increases the healing activities of the cells, and it is a most efficient way to accomplish the needed detoxification.  This means that the toxins are now out of the functioning cells and in the blood near the skin.  The body no longer needs to speed up cellular metabolism in order to cast out the extraneous substances and the fever subsides.  In about two days the fever, and other symptoms subside.  This is when the inflammatory rash appears.  It turns into an elevation of the skin called a papule.  The blister becomes dimpled or umbilicated.  The rash and the development of the papules indicate that the irritants or toxic substances have been removed by the hyperactive, feverish cells and carried to the skin to be cast out.

 Next the little papules become vesicles, like a blister, except that each papule has a little dimple in it.   This is the so-called stage that is supposed to be infective or contagious, should anyone touch the person having smallpox.  After the vesicles are formed, they may become pustules filled with white blood cells if the individual is extra toxic.   The white blood cells are there to destroy the toxins in the vesicles.  But, this stage would never be reached if cared for Hygienically.  The papules dry up and form scabs that eventually fall off.   When treated improperly they will leave a scar.

 It is pertinent to recognize that when the eruption begins, the fever subsides.  The patient would normally be on the road to recovery were it not for the medications given by the doctor.  Medical treatment however, consists in using something that kills the microbes which they assume cause the rash, so it has to be something such as a disinfectant that destroys cell life.  This is consistent with their medical dogma. Therefore, in the past, the profession applied gauze that had been soaked in antiseptic solutions such as phenol (carbolic acid) or bichloride of mercury ( aka mercuric chloride and corrosive sublimate).  Both these agents, carbolic acid and mercuric chloride are corrosive.

 After applying the gauze, soaked in either carbolic acid or mercuric chloride, to the lesions, they were covered with more gauze.  Being tightly wrapped with gauze, the exudate from the vesicle or papule was retained in the lesion and not allowed to drain away when it ruptured.  Naturally, bacteria are going to invade this lesion to clean up the excreted matter.  This corrosive treatment also destroyed living tissues including the protective phagocytic white blood cells and the surrounding skin and subcutaneous tissues.   A high second fever was urgently needed to once again begin warfare on the extraneous poisons and the invading bacteria.

 Either of the two corrosive drugs used can now ooze its way into the vital domain and impede normal function of all the cells in the body; while completely annihilating many.  Ugly black confluent pustules mar the skin.  The rash gets worse.  Vesicles turn into pustules. The pustules become swollen and more inflamed.  The inflammation around them spreads and the lesions  fuse together.   These pathological effects were caused by the drugs.

 It is clear that the condition worsens because of the treatment.  The primary symptoms,  i.e. the  fever,  chills, headache, and backache were suppressed by pharmaceuticals.  The stifling of symptoms with medication prevented the body from completing its job of cleansing, and increased the internal toxemia.  As a result, the umbilicated blisters with clear fluid in them became pustules filled with dead and dying tissues and white blood cells.   The change to a pustule is the direct result of the damaging effects of medications whether taken internally or applied to the skin.  It is incredible that the physicians did not recognize the lethality of their practice.   But, then, they do not recognize it today either.  They are blinded by bygone theories.

 These substances may have killed microorganisms but they also killed human tissues and in reality caused the pustules and all the terrible complications and symptoms thought to be caused by the germ.  Let me emphasize, the symptoms thought to be smallpox are symptoms caused by the treatment.  They were so yesterday just as they are today and always will be in the future as long as we insist on clinging to the idea that disease is something "caught" and that symptoms must be gotten rid of by unnatural means.   As long as we try to eradicate disease with anything, and especially man-made chemicals, we will suffer more than if we merely put up with the symptoms.

 All the various treatments to kill microbes which are "causing" the disease, are killing the patient.  They are not permitting the body to eliminate toxins or restore the blood and tissues to their normal healthy condition.  All treatments, no matter how benign they are claimed to be, impede the recovery process itself.  By using treatments of any kind and getting rid of a rash by rash means, or to doctor it in any way, is the disastrous blunder that causes horrible side-effects, more disease and even death.

 Hemorrhagic or what is known as "black smallpox" is an even more serious type of smallpox and the patient often died.  Again, this serious type of smallpox was directly caused by the cell-killing drugs.  Pustules often developed in the throat and mouth.  When an acidic drug is placed on living tissues, it kills them.  The skin and mucous membranes are already inflamed and are less protective than normal skin.  Therefore, the destructive acids can be absorbed and cause greater internal toxemia.  Carbolic acid or mercuric chloride caused the hemorrhaging of the skin and also hemorrhaging into the pustule.  Either of the corrosive drugs also destroyed the kidney cells and caused bloody urine noted in many hapless smallpox patients.

 There were also many serious complications of this type of treatment in addition to the common ordinary ones that were erroneously thought to be symptoms of  smallpox, but we won’t go into them now.

 From time immemorial people have been frightened of disease.   It was a curse, an evil spirit, or evil demon that caused the problem.  Also from time immemorial people have thought it necessary to exorcize the disease, to placate and appease the evil spirit or demon, to give sacrifices to some god in order to get the demon or evil spirit out of them.  In modern times we do the same.  We have not grown in knowledge.  We just put the evil spirits in the magician’s top hat and pulled out the evil germs and evil viruses.  We still exorcize, placate, appease, and eradicate the evil microbe or evil virus.  Whatever symptoms we have, they are felt to be extraneous, foreign and not from us, so they must be eradicated or extirpated.   We still fear death from the simplest of diseases.  Whatever it is, it must be extirpated or eradicated.  We do it not with incantations but with substances much more evil than anything used in the past.

Hygienic Care
 If Hygienic care had been resorted to in the beginning of smallpox no complications would have occurred and there would rarely be a genuine pustule.  With Hygienic management the disease would not have to progress to the second stage with pustules or a second fever.  It would only become pustular if the individual prevented drainage of the vesicle and continued eating a heavy diet.  The vesicles containing the unwanted debris that was in the organs and tissues would burst.  The clear fluid containing the toxic substances would flow out onto the skin.  Frequent warm sponge baths would wash away all the poisonous debris.  The inflammation of the skin would heal and that would be the end of the disease.  There would be no horrendous pustules, or other complications brought about by the medications.  If individuals kept themselves clean, but did not take off the scabs until they fell off naturally, there would be no unsightly pock-marks.  People are always too anxious to pull scabs away.  To do so is to expose the lesion to the atmosphere before the skin has completely healed below it.   The skin then has to quickly heal over before it has completed restoring the underlying tissues.   This, naturally leaves a pit or scar.  The extensive boils and gangrene that regularly occurred would not have taken place had no corrosive drugs been used.

 If you think those symptoms are bad, and that we do not use any medicine so lethal as corrosive sublimate and carbolic acid today, you’d better rethink the problem.  Today’s drugs are even more lethal because they are designed to be easily absorbed, and to spread to every tissue and cell in the body and kill cells all over the body.  Do not put your hope in medical "care".   The only care you need is a healthy body and to let it do its thing.

 You do not have to fear smallpox, even if you should develop it, as long as you immediately quit eating and go to bed and rest, drinking pure water only when thirsty.  Smallpox is a disease of the bon-vivant, epicurean, who overeats on a daily basis, especially on animal foods.  The condition of enervation is built by anyone who does not secure sufficient rest and sleep to permit the elimination of endogenic and exogenic toxins, and for the restoration of the nervous system.  Once the stage of enervation is established digestion is further impaired and the body is flooded with fermentation and decomposition products from the intestines.  This is what is called Toxemia, and Toxicosis. Toxicosis makes it exigent and imperative that these toxins be eliminated immediately by extraordinary means, such as through the skin.

 Every single cell in your body is capable of eliminating and destroying various microorganisms and their waste products, as well as man-made organic products, but most man-made products are more toxic than those made by bacteria and they cause more damage than bacterial waste products.   It can be disastrous when the body is overwhelmed by substances that do not belong inside it, and which the body cannot use under any circumstance of life.  And this is what happens when diseases are "treated."  Your body is inundated with toxic substances and it may drown.

20 Reasons Not To Take The Smallpox Vaccination
By Amy Worthington

1. George W. Bush has said of smallpox vaccination: "One of my concerns if we were to have universal vaccination, some might lose their life." ~The Times (in London), November 09, 2001.

2. For each million people vaccinated with the smallpox vaccine, as many as 250 could die, according to the American Medical Association. Multiply 250 times 285 (millions of Americans) and the possible deaths from universal smallpox vaccination could equal 71,250. ~ Journal of the American Medical Association, June 9, 1999, Vol. 281, No. 22, p. 2132.

3. "The American Medical Association said on Tuesday it was not in favor of an immediate mass U.S.smallpox vaccination program, saying the potential threat of a bioterror attack did not warrant inoculating every American against the disease." ~Reuters, December 12, 2001.

4. "Right now the risk of getting the vaccine is higher than the benefit. You could get a secondary infection, a full-blown systemic infection." ~Marie Rau, Panhandle Health District nurse, quoted by The Spokesman-Review, November 20, 2001.

5. CDC director Jeffrey Koplan has admitted that universal smallpox vaccination could unleash a significant number of side-effects. He said that because many parts of ourpopulation do not have a "robust immune system," a fair number of people could have serious reactions. ~Koplan speaking on the PBS special "Bioterror Propaganda" aired by WETA, November 14, 2001.

6. If the entire nation were to receive a smallpox vaccine, several thousand people would likely develop encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain. ~Washington Post, Dec. 26, 2001.

7. Roger J. Pomerantz, chief of the infectious disease department at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, said that doctors have no idea what the smallpox vaccine might do to people at the extremes of life--less than 2 and older than 65. He said that an even greater concern would be its effect on people with weakened immune systems from HIV infection, chemotherapy or transplants. ~Washington Post, Dec. 26, 2001.

8. "Researchers have been reluctant to recommend a new vaccination program which would use the smallpox vaccine for the local population because the vaccine can cause disease and death in persons with inadequate immune systems." ~Science, Vol. 277, July 18, 1997, pp. 312-13.

9. Routine smallpox vaccination in the United States ended in 1972. Officials are hesitant to resume the immunizations because the vaccine is the most reactive of all and has been linked to serious side effects, including death. ~ Reuters, November 29, 2001.

10. Eight printed pages of medical studies documenting the many serious side effects of smallpox vaccination can be obtained at www.whale.to/vaccines/smallpox.html. See "smallpox vaccine adverse reactions 66-76." [Note: go to the home page above and put "smallpox vaccine adverse reaction" in the search engine.] Repercussions include serious brain and heart diseases, autism, abnormal chromosomal changes, diabetes, various cancers and leukemias, plus demyelination of nerve tissue years after vaccination.

11. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that vaccination must not be forced on persons whose physical condition would make such vaccination "cruel and inhuman." In other words, the state has no right to command that an individual sacrifice his life in the name of public health. ~Jacobsen V. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11 (1905).

12. By the 1920s, several British medical researchers documented that smallpox was not only more common among the VACCINATED, but that the DEATH RATE from smallpox was actually higher among those who had been vaccinated. This indicates that the vaccine was ineffective and predisposed vaccinated persons to more lethal disease. ~Vaccination, Dr. Viera Scheibner, Australia, 1993, pp. 205-220. 13. Getting a vaccination does not guarantee immunity. ~CDC, January 28, 1994.

14. By 1987, scientific evidence indicated that the World Health Organization's 13-year global smallpox vaccination campaign may have awakened dormant HIV infection in many vaccinees. ~Times (in London) May 11, 1987.

15. Vaccines made from animal substrate contain animal viruses that are impossible to filter out. By 1961, scientists discovered that animal viruses in vaccines, including smallpox, could act as a carcinogen when given to mice in combination with cancer-causing chemicals, even in amounts too small to induce tumors alone. They concluded that vaccine viruses function as a catalyst for tumor production. ~Science, December 15, 1961.

16. Some of the new smallpox vaccine doses will be created with animal substrate. Because the vaccine will incorporate vaccinia, the cowpox virus, many wonder about possible mad-cow contamination. Fifty-five million doses of the new vaccine will be created using a cell line dating back to 1966 and cultured from the lung tissues of an aborted human fetus. ~World Net Daily, December 4, 2001.

17. The new smallpox vaccine will be genetically engineered. Many scientists believe that genetically engineered vaccines may be responsible for the global epidemic of auto-immune disease and neurological dysfunction. ~American College of Rheumatology, annual meeting, Nov. 8-12, 1998. Merck's genetically engineered hepatitis B vaccine, Recombivax HB, is a classic example. According to Dr. Bonnie Dunbar of Baylor College of Medicine, many thousands of reported adverse reactions to the hepatitis B vaccine include: chronic fatigue, neurological disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and MS-like disease. ~Testimony of Dr. Dunbar to Texas Dept. of Health, March 12, 1999. Over 15,000 French citizens sued the French government to stop mandatory hepatitis B injections for school children because of resulting auto-immune diseases. ~Science, July 31, 1998. Dr. John Classen has published voluminous data showing that the hepatitis B and other vaccines are closely linked to the development of insulin dependent diabetes. ~Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice, October 22, 1997.

18. The British vaccine manufacturer Medeva has a horrendous record of contamination and blunders. In 2000, the FDA found that Medeva was making vaccines in conditions of filth, resulting in contaminated products. Medeva had been illegally using bovine medium to culture its polio vaccines, then lied about it. Medeva also used the blood of a Creutzfeldt-Jakob victim (mad cow) to manufacture 83,000 doses of polio vaccine used for (against?) Irish children. Nevertheless, the FDA allowed the USA to accept Medeva's flu vaccine Fluvirin for the year 2000. ~London Observer series: October 20-26, 2000.

19. In 2001, the British socialized health care system was reported to be in a state of collapse, with many hospitals and labs operating in abysmal filth. Five thousand people die each year from infections contracted in British hospitals; 10,000 become deathly ill from such infections. Sterilization procedures are barely adequate and said to be risking the spread of mad cow
 disease. Government ministers are reportedly trying to hush up the scandal. ~www.itn.co.uk/ Jan 06, 2001; The Sunday Times of London, November 12, 2001.

20. The U.S. government apparently intends to conduct NO double blind studies on the safety and efficacy of the new smallpox vaccine. It has ordered 286 million doses, one for every man, woman and child in America at a cost of $428 million. At least half of this vaccine will be delivered by Acambis PLC of great Britain.

"The Right to Know, The Freedom to Abstain"

Comment From kh6 1-9-2

I wouldn't take the vaccine either but consider this: Point #2 extrapolates the number of deaths following vaccination at 71,250. For perspective, this number is less than the number of deaths in 1996 from heat disease (733,361), cancer (539,533) and stroke (159,942). The number of deaths from smallpox vaccination would be less than the number of deaths from chronic respiratory diseases (106,027) and accidents (94,948), but more than the number of deaths from diabetes mellitus (61,767) and HIV (31,130) (CDC, for the year 1996).
