    waco, the article you posted the link to does not demonstrate what you think it does, or what it obtusely claims to.

    There is a difference between a mortality rate, and a morbidity rate.

    Trying to claim that a mortality rate proves that diphtheria was decreasing may be accurate.

    Or maybe not.

    It is the wrong tool to use to try to prove that, unless diphtheria has a case fatality rate (cfr) of 100%.

    It doesn't.


    But pseudo-science is kind of like honey badger....he don't care.


    Tell what, check the Dr.s research and get back to me in the morning.

    If you've ever had anyone in your immediate family contract polio, you would appreciate vaccines more.

    Are you suggesting I am an anti vaxxer who does not see any value in vaccines?

    This graph is almost meaningless, as it presents no control data.

    Assuming the rest of the "science" is in keeping with this, I'll pass on taking the article at face value.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain
