First Do No Harm

Morris Beale The Drug Story

Smallpox scare

Bringing the subject down almost to date, the rawest publicity stunt pulled by public relations firms for the biologicals manufacturing business was in New York City in Feb. and March of 1947.

On Feb. 25, Eugene LeBar, a Mexico City importer took a bus to New York City. On March 10th he died in one of the city hospitals. The diagnosis was "hemorrhagic bronchitis". Somewhere between that date and April 10th, the Rockefeller public relations firm, recently assigned to the American Medical Association because the upward spiral of drug trust profits wasn't spiraling upward fast enough, had a brilliant idea.

Senor LeBar, they reasoned, during his long trip had been in the same atmosphere with thousands of people from El Paso to New York. Why not drum up a SMALLPOX SCARE all over the United States and make ten million more dollars filling the nation's blood stream with cow pus and horse filth.

With New York's publicity-loving Mayer, Wm. O'Dwyer, as the spearhead, this is exactly what they did. The bronchitis diagnosis was changed to one of smallpox 30 days after Senor LeBar's demise. Mayor O'Dwyer ordered everyone in New York vaccinated, although HE HAD NO MORE POWER TO DO THIS than Mahatma Gandhi had.

The associated Press put the story on its wires in a big way, its "science" editor going all out to exploit this latest in "science". Of course, that didn't make AP Director Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the Rockefeller foundation mad with his editors.

All the dopes and dupes in New York formed long lines in front of every police station and every doctor's office and had five years lopped off the other end of their lives. Newspapers and health departments all over the country, following the O'Dwyer publicity spread the serum HOAX and exhorted their own dupes to "get vaccinated". Thousands upon thousands of them did. One public relations firm for the drug trust planted a fake story that Pres. Truman had himself vaccinated before coming to New York to address a newspaper convention. Although this was denied by the White House, the denial, as usual, never caught up with the lie.

The police station vaccinations cost the taxpayers of New York City $850,000 (remember this is 1947) and those who went to private doctors, even more. The Drug Trust undoubtedly added ten to fifteen million dollars to its 1947 profits.

Editor's Notes: Some have questioned Beal's veracity, though he was a well respected investigative journalist of his time. To back up the story, we've done our own research and now we can present it to you.

The New York Times published and article on May 12, 1947 with the headlines: Smallpox Danger Considered Past ─ Weinstein Tells Mayor Prompt Vaccination of 6,350,000 Averted Epidemic Here. You can read this story here: smallpox.pdf.

On May 7, the Lubbock Morning Avalanche (Texas) published an editorial by a man who says he visits New York regularly, and got the vaccination. The proof of the possible epidemic averted is: he hasn't contracted smallpox (click on the thumbnail on the right to enlarge).

Pretty far off the route of the bus that carried the man with an "upper respiratory infection," lie Missouri and Iowa, but fear spreads faster than smallpox. In a tiny town in Missouri, the The Chillicothe Constitution-Tribune published a little story of how they vaccinated all the senior class at their high school because, even though they'd all been vaccinated once, the "effect of the vaccine probably had worn off in most cases."

In Council Bluffs, Iowa, people were vaccinated as a "preventive measure since an outbreak of the disease occurred on the east coast and a few cases have been reported in Iowa."

The thing is, when an outbreak occurs, real or false, suddenly around the nation cases start popping up. In actuality, they pop up in peoples minds and newspapers simply report on the rumors rather than doing the legwork needed for a fact check. Fear is an amazing thing; it seems to cut off oxygen to the brain and in their panic, people are willing to publish, read, and believe almost anything.

Smallpox Stats 

We have some later statistics on the Philippine Smallpox Front. In the years 1918, 1919 and 1920, after 20 years of compulsory vaccination, the greatest smallpox epidemic in Philippine history occurred, with 162,503 cases and 71,455 deaths.

In the province of Rizal, which surrounds Manila where the representatives of the vaccine companies had headquarters, they had a death rate of 67.24 per 100. This was three and a half times the death rate shown in any part of the archipelago before vaccination came to the Philippines.

Broken down for 1918 the report shows that 3,285,376 Filipinos were vaccinated, 47,369 came down with smallpox, 16,477 died. In1919they more than doubled each operation which would seem to prove this point. The number of vaccinations totaled 7,670,252, the number of cases of smallpox 65,180 and the number of deaths, 44,408.

To quote Dr. Harry R. Bybee, of Norfolk, Va., pres. of the National Chiropractic Asoc., he said: "My honest opinion is that vaccination is the cause of more disease and suffering than anything I could name. I believe that such diseases as cancer, syphilis, cold sores and many other disease conditions are the direct results of vaccination Yet, in the state of Virginia and many other states, parents are compelled to submit their children to this procedure while the medical profession not only receives its pay for this unwanted service, but makes splendid and profitable patients for the future.

Dr. Herbert Snow, the senior surgeon of the Cancer Hospital in London said: "Of recent years many men and women in the prime of life have dropped dead suddenly, often after attending a wedding feast or banquet. I am convinced that some 80% of these deaths are caused by the inoculations or vaccinations they have undergone. These are well known to cause grave and permanent disease to the heart. The coroner always hushes it up with "Natural Causes". Dr. W. B. Clarke of Indianapolis: "Cancer was practically unknown until cowpox vaccination began to be introduced. I have had to do with at least 200 cases of cancer, and I never saw a case of cancer in an unvaccinated person."

Dr. J.M. Peebles of San Diego , at the turn of the century, said in his book, "The vaccination practice, pushed to the front on all occasions by the medical profession and through political connivance made compulsory by the state, has not only become the chief menace and greatest danger to the health of the rising generation, but likewise the crowning outrage upon the personal liberty of the American citizen. The fee-hunting doctors are incessantly hounding the legislatures for more stringent compulsory enactments by which they will be enable to inflict and repeat this degrading rite upon defenseless people for the enhancement of their revenues. Compulsory vaccination, poisoning the crimson currents of the human system with brute-extracted lymph under the strange infatuation that it would prevent smallpox, was one of the darkest blots that disfigured the last century. The majority of doctors are behind the times. They may have diplomas, but they are laggards. They are not students. Many of them prefer the golf course to the postgraduate course, the clubroom to the medical laboratory, the cigar to the clinic.

Dr. Peebles, "It is admitted that prevention is preferable to cure, and there is not an intelligent medical practitioner in the land who will unqualifiedly risk his reputation upon the statement that vaccination is a positive prevention of smallpox. Volumes of statistics, as well as the highest medical science in the U.S., Canada, England, the Continent would be directly against him. The most that any physician of good standing now contends is that vaccination modifies the disease. This is stoutly denied. On the contrary it aggravates the disease as there are two poisons now in the system instead of one for nature to contend against. It is sanitation, diet, pure air, calmness of mind, confidence and cleanliness that modify the smallpox. Al of these modifiers are infinitely cheaper, safer and in every way preferable to cowpox poison which, if it does not kill, often marks, maims and sows the seeds of future eczema, tumors, ulcers, carbuncles, cancer and leprosy. We have at our command testimonies, scores of testimonies, proving beyond any possible doubt that men unvaccinated have nursed smallpox patients in hospitals at different times, for years, and never took the disease. On the other hand we have, with dates and figures, the most positive proof that those who have been vaccinated two and three times, took the disease when exposed and died there from. These facts are undeniable."

A.M. Ross, M.D., seems to have summed up briefly, succinctly and unanswerably (by the vaccine manufacturers and vendors) the cause of smallpox, which shows that adding fuel to flames will not put out the fire. Dr. Ross Said: "Wherever the streets are narrow, the lanes and courts filthy, where cesspits abound and filth is allowed to accumulate and ferment, where the weak, intemperate and unclean congregate together, and where the children are ill-fed and badly clothed, there smallpox makes its home and riots in filth and death.
