“The population of the U.S. stood at about 318.9 million in 2014. The ‘baby boomer’ generation (those born between 1946 and 1964) account for about 24% of the total population. Many years ago, it was believed that childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2-10 years after being given.
Thus, for at least the past 40 years, the one-quarter to nearly 40% of the U.S. population represented by the baby boomers has had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated as a child. If you include those born after 1964, the percentage of the unprotected surpasses 50%. According to retired neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, ‘If we listened to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%.’
Given that at least half the population has effectively been without vaccine protection for many years, we should have experienced a massive resurgence in childhood infectious diseases. But this has not happened. In other words, we haven’t had herd immunity in the U.S., and yet the world hasn’t come tumbling down.”
