Vaccine Nation
a documentary review by Ingri Cassel

Vaccine Nation, a film by veteran health freedom advocate Gary Null, Ph.d, is an excellent compilation of truthful vaccine history—from smallpox and polio to shocking clips of the “Simpsonwood” transcripts. In 2000, a secret meeting was held among our nation’s vaccine policy makers and pharmaceutical industry luminaries to discuss how to handle the coming backlash over the increasing amount of mercury our children were exposed to via vaccines in the 1990s.

The film starts out with a 1950s documentary clip highlighting mass vaccination against polio as the “cure” against the new scourge. Gary Null reiterates the mantra of the importance of mass vaccination programs but ends this intro by leaving the viewer thinking that mass vaccination may not be the answer. The rest of the film artfully weaves together interviews with many medical researchers, private physicians specializing in autism, parents of children victimized by vaccines, congressmen, activists and legal authorities.

I especially appreciated the fact that Gary Null immediately brings up the dubious foundation of the vaccine paradigm by citing how Edward Jenner inoculated James Phipps with what was thought to be cow pox from pustules on a milk maid’s hands. Despite the lack of scientific proof that this blood-poisoning procedure actually protected recipients from contracting smallpox, powerful medical interests of the day pushed for passage of mandatory inoculation of cowpox as a means to prevent smallpox, ignoring the true causes of this filth disease. As a result, England and many other countries that followed suit experienced the worse epidemics of smallpox in recorded history.
