An unpublished study by the World Health Organisation1
(WHO) on a ‘measles susceptible’ (malnourished)
group of children showed that the group who hadn’t
been vaccinated contracted measles at the normal
contract rate of 2.4%. Of the group who had received
the measles vaccine (MMR), 33.5% contracted measles.
In 1975 Japan raised the minimum age for infant
vaccinations to 2 years of age. As a result, SIDS (Sudden
Infant Death Syndrome, or, crib death) and infant
convulsions virtually disappeared. In the 1980s, Japan
lowered the minimum age back down to 3 months and

the recruits contracted it.
