This review is from: Melanie's Marvelous Measles (Paperback)
I nearly died when I had measles as a child. Another child living nearby did die. Not so marvellous...
This book's advice, if followed, will lead to the unnecessary deaths of children. That's not my opinion, it's a fact that's well-supported by the evidence. I implore parents to ignore this ill-informed author and make use of the vaccinations that have saved the lives of millions.

Mr. J. D. Wantling says:
Here is a quote from...
"The Sociology of Health and Illness" study. 5th edition of John & Sonia McKinley.
They studied all the infectious illnesses around the country. The looked at the impact modern medicine had on all infectious diseases.
"It is estimated that at most 3.5% of the total decline in mortality since 1900's could be ascribed to medical measures introduced for the diseases considered."
"furthermore that medical measures were introduced several decades after marked decline had already set in having no detectable influences in most instances."
McKinley is saying that vaccines are ineffective and one reason for this is because they merely suppress disease symptoms and also poison mind and body. No vaccine makes anyone immune or can possibly save lives. This is a grand assumption. MMR is no different, it is a poison and suppresses disease symptoms. The point is that we need to understand the mechanisms of childhood disease such as measles before we make a judgement on vaccinations and before we condemn the author of this book. So read this book with an open mind and see that it is very dangerous to suppress disease symptoms and then to call that immunity which is what medical science has done, and it's this bad thinking and bad science that has caused vaccine damage and death on a grand scale.

I refer you to some figures another commenter linked to - cases of measles notified, and deaths from measles, in Britain, from 1940 onwards. The MMR vaccine was introduced here in 1988. The figures decrease slowly over the decades, but reduce much more dramatically in the years after 1988. And they begin to rise again after the MMR scare caused vaccine rates to decline. I'd say that shows a pretty strong correlation between measles infections and measles vaccination.
Vaccines don't suppress the symptoms of a disease. They trigger the body to produce antibodies to the bacterium or virus that causes it, and the body remembers that. So if the body is infected with the same bacteria/viruses in the future, it knows how to make the antibodies that will kill them.
The mechanisms of diseases such as measles are now well-understood, hence the development of effective vaccines.
