I don't know how I missed this piece in my own research but alas I did and thought I would post it here:

What is the evidence for a causal link between hygiene and infections?

Interesting chart, most charts I've seen included with pro vaccine propaganda begin in the 1950's, now I see why.

When you look back to 1900 up to 1950, you see that the death rates from infectious disease were well on the DECLINE before the introduction of vaccines.

I guess showing the early years wouldn't do much to support the vaccine theory they're trying to sell.

Reading the article gives honest reasons for disease/death rate decline instead of giving all the credit to vaccines.

If you're questioning vaccines or not vaccinating at all, stop by the Non-Vaccine Support Board that I proudly host: http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-ppnonvaccine

But never assume that the greedy and incompetent,

-- through stupidity or willful ignorance --

are not unknowingly part of a deeper conspiracy.
