Measles deaths (from 1901/2, averaged) declined by 99.4% before vaccination
in 1968!

So some children are still dying from measles. And, some children are
also have life-problems from measles encephalopathy, like hearing loss.
And that's ok with you. Got it.

As usual you torture figures to suit your preconceptions. There were
two factors which influenced infectious disease decline. Social
(including better hygiene, living and nutrition) and vaccination.

Prior to the two World Wars the former were the predominant influence
on most infectious diseases. However, after the end of the war the
rate of decline slowed and, in the case of measles, by 1954 had
stopped and for the next 12 years remained steady at about 75 deaths
per year.

The next decline only took place after the introduction of measles
vaccination and between 1968 and 1989 dropped to about 1-3. Since
then it has stayed at that level.

use vitamin C if you actually cared about that
http://www.whale.to/a/levy_h.html
and arren't we forgetting about vaccine derived encephalopathy?
http://www.whale.to/vaccines/encephalomyelitis.html
http://www.whale.to/vaccines/encephalitis.htm

"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

so you agree with me that that was a lie, as he said it was only
vaccination.

I know the stats, have a look at the graph

as you seem to be deluded about the part vaccination played
