1717 "the germ theory of disease, in particular, being the unconscious offspring of the ancient Eastern faith in specific demons, each possessed of his own special weapon of malignity. Thus the smallpox inoculation introduced into England from Turkey by Lady Mary Wortley Montague in the eighteenth century [1717] and its substitute of cowpox inoculation were based on the ancient Indian rite of subjecting people to an artificially induced attack of smallpox to propitiate Sheetula-Mata, the goddess of that torment." (3)
1728London: "in the forty years 1728-57 and 1771-80, [annually] the mortality per million would have been under 3,000." (7) This is 3 per 1000, of the population of a then filthy city, and about 1 in 5 or 1 in 6 mortality for those contracting smallpox.

1973 "Professor George Dick, speaking at an environmental conference in Brussels in 1973, admitted that in recent decades, 75% of British people who contracted smallpox had been vaccinated. This, combined with the fact that only 40% of children (and a maximum of 10% of adults) had been vaccinated, clearly shows that vaccinated people have a much higher tendency to contract the disease."

Kiftel in 1967, smallpox vaccination damaged the hearing of 3,296 children in West Germany, of which 71 became totally deaf.117."--R Obasawin MD. Source:

1971 "The Presidential Address of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (1971) and Scientitic American (1973) presented records which document that 90% of all "contagious" disease was eliminated as the result of vastly improved sanitation, water systems, nutrition and living/working conditions. Mass vaccination (and antibiotics) was introduced about a century after that period of enormous decline (1850-1940) and yet is given full credit for it."(3)
