[eLetters 2000 CMA] Vaccination: the wider picture? In response to: Vaccination: refuting the refusals  by Peter Morrell

[Letter BMJ 2000] Is vaccination cause célèbre or bête noire?

"Let me explain why I am opposed to vaccination and why I have had none of my four children immunised for anything, all of whom are healthy.......My objections are that it does not work; it is unnatural, that the human race has survived healthily for countless generations without them and that homeopathy provides a better alternative that is both safe and effectiveYet, I am not typical because many of those who oppose vaccination know nothing about homeopathy, and as you say, they object for political or religious reasons, that lie beyond the scope of medical practice. However, once you use homeopathy and can rely on it, as I have done for over twenty years, then one can see the dangers and pitfalls of vaccination as another Russian roulette game not worth the risk.....Doctors essentially believe the pro-vaccine propaganda and just keep repeating it like a mantra without looking at the facts. It is like a form of voluntary brainwashing. In truth, every major infection for which vaccines exist was originally in massive decline before a single vaccine was introduced. This certainly applies to Diphtheria, Tuberculosis, Whooping Cough and Measles."   [eLetters 2000 CMA] Vaccination: the wider picture?

Homeopathy Re Examined - Beyond the Classical Paradigm
Review by Peter Morrel

Allopaths like to spread the misinformation that the majority of homeopaths, or homeopath, supports vaccination:

"Vaccines are the only disease prevention option available...For instance, the position of the Faculty of Homeopathy at the Royal London Homeopoathy Hospital on immunisation is very simple and encapsulated well in the following statement by it's president Dr DS Spence: "When there is no medical contraindication, immunisation should be carried out in the normal way using conventional tested and approved vaccines".

"The Faculty of Homoeopathy acknowledges this and recommends the use of conventional vaccines.  Hahnemann, the founder of homoeopathy, was a supporter of smallpox vaccination."---Helen Bedford & David Elliman

Comment by Peter Morrell:
"The Faculty of Homoeopathy speaks for a medically qualified minority. The more numerous medically unqualified homoeopaths belong to the Society of Homoeopaths, the Institute of Complementary Medicine, or the Homoeopathic Medical Association, totalling some 2000 practitioners. None of these bodies supports vaccination."--
