"Many viral infectious diseases have been cured  and can continue to be   cured by the proper administration of Vitamin C.  Yes, the vaccinations for   these treatable infectious diseases are completely unnecessary when one has   the access to proper treatment with vitamin C.  And, yes, all the side   effects of vaccinations...are also completely unnecessary since the vaccinations do not have to be given in the first place with the availability of properly dosed vitamin C."---Dr Thomas Levy M.D., J.D. (Vitamin C,  Infectious Diseases and Toxins p30)

Malnutrition plays a significant part in measles deaths
"In 1980 approx 39% of the world's children (141 million) suffered from some degree of malnutrition."--The Malnourished Child by Robert Suskind, Louisiana State University School of Med.

Malnutrition is to blame for more than half of all the deaths of children around the world -- including deaths caused by diarrhea, pneumonia, malaria and measles, researchers said on Thursday. Poor nourishment leaves children underweight and weakened and vulnerable to infections that do not have to be fatal, the team at the World Health Organization and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore found.  They estimated that feeding all children worldwide an adequate diet would prevent about 1 million deaths a year from pneumonia, 800,000 from diarrhea, 500,000 from malaria, and 250,000 from measles...... They estimate that 52.5 percent of all deaths in young children were attributable to undernourishment, with nearly 45 percent of measles deaths and more than 60 percent of deaths from diarrhea associated with low weight and poor nutrition.

Levy, MD, JD, Thomas E.

"Dr. Levy shows that many viral diseases such as polio, hepatitis, and encephalitis have been consistently cured by high doses of vitamin C given intravenously.....outlines the evidence that many potent toxins are completely neutralized by a prompt and vigorous dosing of vitamin C, even though current medicine offers little or no other effective treatments for them. Dr. Levy cites literature that shows vitamin C can completely reverse and clinically cure advanced poisonings from agents such as tetanus toxin, mushroom toxin, barbiturates, snakebite venom, and heavy metals like lead, to name only a few. Because of this toxin-neutralizing ability, Dr. Levy further notes that the scientific evidence supports vitamin C as being an ideal agent for treating many of the infectious diseases that also produce very potent toxins, such as diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough)."---Book review 2002

"Six cases of virus encephalitis were treated and cured with vitamin C injections. Two cases were associated with virus pneumonia; one followed chickenpox, one mumps, one measles and one a combination of measles and mumps. In the case that followed the measles-mumps complex, definite evidence was found to confirm the belief that massive, frequent injections are necessary in treating virus infections with vitamin C............A lad of 12 years had generalized headache a week after having mumps, this followed by malaise, and in 12 hours a lethargic state and a fever of 105°. Admitted to hospital he was given 2000 mg. of vitamin C then, and 1000 mg. every two hours. Following the third injection he. was sitting up in bed, laughing, talking, begging for food and completely without pain........Of mumps, 33 cases were treated with ascorbic acid. When vitamin C was given at the peak of the infection the fever was gone within 24 hours, the pain within 36 hours, the swelling in 48 to 72 hours. Two cases were complicated with orchitis. A young man of 23 years developed bilateral orchitis one Friday morning, by seven o’clock that night he was in severe pain, had a fever of 105° and was nursing testicles the size of tennis balls. Vitamin C was started at this time — 1000 mg. every two hours, intravenously. The pain began to subside following the first injection and ceased in 12 hours. There was no fever after 36 hours. The patient was out of bed feeling his old self after 60 hours...........A second boy, aged 11, was allowed to develop mumps to the point of maximum swelling without any therapy, then given vitamin C, 1000 mg. intramuscularly, every two to four hours. This lad was entirely well in 48 hours."--Dr Klenner The Treatment of Poliomyelitis and Other Virus Diseases with Vitamin C Fred R. Klenner, M.D. 1949

"The use of vitamin C in measles proved to be a medical curiosity. During an epidemic vitamin C was used prophylactically and all those who received as much as 1000 mg. every six hours, by vein or muscle, were protected from the virus."----Dr Klenner The Treatment of Poliomyelitis and Other Virus Diseases with Vitamin C Fred R. Klenner, M.D. 1949

"But the ordinary child who gets measles, even the child with a moderate degree of malnutrition and so forth, if you give intravenous vitamin C supplementary to other forms of treatment, the response very often, not always, is absolutely dramatic If you get them early enough. You must get them early. If you delay, and they have been unconscious let us say for days, or a day or two, you cannot reverse it. The damage is permanent. If you get them early, give them this treatment and there is no problem. And that makes me very, very angry, because they talk about "Oh, we must stop these kids getting measles" and so forth. Well, all right, I can fix them if they get measles."---Dr Kalokerinos (International Vaccine Newsletter June 1995)

"The matron was convinced that the diagnosis was meningitis so she prepared a lumbar puncture.  I had however, seen this problem before.  Lumbar punctures performed by me had been negative and the infants died....the trauma of inserting a needle..might result in a haemorrage that might cause spinal cord paralysis.  So I decided to give an injection of vitamin C..I probably gave as many as 6 injections, each 100mg.  After half an hour Mary was normal.  It was hard to believe, but I had performed a miracle!...I found that any viral infection, including measles and hepatitis, could be dramatically 'cured' by administering Vitamin C intravenously in big doses--provided that treatment was commenced early."---Dr Kalokerinos MD (Medical Pioneer of the 20th century p175)

Vitamin A: [Cod Liver Oil]

Vitamin A---Sheri Taken from HEALTHY TALK "magazine"...

Studies in America, and New Zealand have found children who have measles often have third world micronutrient levels, and the recommendations in both countries since 2001 have been that all children with measles be given vitamin A.  So I ask you two questions:  Why, 75 years later, is Gerberding only wanting you to know that the measles vaccine works to reduce deaths?  Don’t you wonder what might have been, for Africa and the developed world as well, had doctors taken their heads out of the sand and administered vitamin A from 1932 onwards?
       Ah, but the catch with that was they wouldn’t have had all those deaths and complications from pre-1996, to wave in front of your nose and say, in a nutshell, you need the vaccine because there is NOTHING we can do to help you if your child gets measles.  The messages that “you need the vaccine” and “there is nothing we can do for you” were both lies. For whatever reason, the medical profession chose to ignore decades of literature on vitamin A. [2007] Vaccines and Third World Countries by Hilary Butler

In 1982, a doctor in Tanzania, who was looking at blindness in children, pointed out that “The clinical picture in malnourished measles patients is very typical and entirely similar to that of diseases children suffering from severe vitamin A deficiency, i.e. xerophthalmia”.  i.e. blindness.  He pointed out that, “well nourished children, however, only rarely develop complicated measles and they do not have bad corneal lesions.”  They took 59 children who had blindness as a “result of measles” and put them on 100,000 units of vitamin A every day, for a week.  The eye lesions started to dissipate, and by two weeks, all 59 children, with or without corneal scars, had healed.  So tell me.  What causes the blindness?  The measles, or a fundamental vitamin A malnutrition? [2007] Vaccines and Third World Countries by Hilary Butler

"Three hundred cases of measles received a concentrate of vitamins A and D during the acute stage of the disease: eleven deaths occurred in the series. In a control series of 300 cases having a similar age distribution twenty-six-deaths occurred.  Evidence is brought forward in support of the view that the pulmonary complications were less severe in the treated cases than in the controls."---J. B. Ellison M.A., M.D., D.P.H. 1932

"Knowing that measles often leads to vitamin A loss, we had begun to wonder if Africa's high death rates from measles might also be connected with vitamin A deficiency. To test this, children hospitalized with measles in Tanzania were given vitamin A capsules. The measles death rate fell by half. It was at this point that we discovered, to our astonishment, that a similar experiment had been conducted 50 years earlier in a London hospital - with the same results: medicine too has doors it did not enter, paths it did not take."--Dr. Alfred Sommer

Child mortality citations

"There is a "cure" for measles. It is called vitamin A... cod-liver oil. As early as 1932 doctors used cod-liver oil to reduce hospital mortality by 58%, but then antibiotics became the treatment of fashion, (Clin. Infect. Dis., Sept. 1994, pg 493) and vitamin A was ignored until 1980. A 1993 study showed that 72% of hospitalised measles cases in America are vitamin A deficient, and the worse the deficiency the worse the complications and higher the death rate. (Pediatric Nursing, Sept./Oct. 96.) Yet doctors and hospitals in New Zealand do not use vitamin A."
