No one said that exposure to a toxin is immediately fatal, but it
increases the risk of disease and can shorten lifespan. Based on your
"logic," there would no reason to stop smoking since only 5% of
smokers actually develop lung cancer. THINK.

Like I said, dumbo, most human disease is directly linked to
nutritional insufficiency. Diet is a critical factor in disease
prevention, treatment, and cure.

Hmm I guess that's why smallpox was eradicated in all those third
world countries you know the ones with starvation diets?

The more we learn about the causes of disease we realise that genetics
plays an increasingly crucial role.
No one is arguing that a good diet is a prophylactic - and
incidentally that obviates the need for vitamin supplements. But food
is not medicine - rabies doesn't respond to a good diet - neither does
type 1 diabetes - neither does ACS neither does....

If you are suggesting that vaccine was responsible for declines in
Smallpox, please feel free to cite your source backing that up.

That is only true for a very small percentage of human diseases; it is
not true for most **incidence** of disease.

No, it doesn't. Inadequate diets can be effectively supplemented.

Food is the best medicine, however herbal and concentrated nutritional
therapies are more potent and immediate in their effects.

Diet is just one aspect of natural medicine, and in most cases drugs
are the inferior option. The reason emergency medicine is so
effective is that it borrows so heavily from nutritional science and
biosynthetics, i.e, magnesium sulfate, insulin, thiamine, N acetyl
cystine, Glucagon, etc.

You skated on every point made and only responded with one retort that
didn't address what was said. Idiot.
