Numerous studies have confirmed a link between vaccinations and higher rates of cancer. Children who contract childhood ailments such as measles, mumps and chickenpox are significantly protected against various cancers later in life. Children who are vaccinated against childhood diseases are prevented from developing this anti-cancer protection. They are trading a reduced risk of infections for an increased risk of developing cancer later in childhood or as an adult.

The studies on this webpage provide strong evidence that infections protect against cancer while vaccines -- which are designed to prevent infections -- increase cancer rates.

Studies on Vaccines, Cancer and Natural Infections:
- A mumps infection -- but not mumps vaccination -- protects women against ovarian cancer.
- Women with prior infections of mumps, measles, rubella or chickenpox were significantly less likely to develop ovarian cancer.
- Adults with previous infections of influenza, measles, mumps or chickenpox are less likely to develop malignant melanoma.
- A history of chickenpox is significantly protective against the risk of developing a brain tumor.
- Childhood diseases experienced early in life protect against many different types of cancer later in life.
- Measles and other childhood infections protect against cancer of the lymph system.
- Early exposure to infectious disease significantly reduces the risk of childhood leukemia.
- MMR vaccination increases the risk of childhood leukemia.
Miller's Review of Critical Vaccine Studies
400 Important Scientific Papers
Summarized for Parents and Researchers
by Neil Z. Miller
Foreword by Gary Goldman, PhD
In stock. Now available!
Many people sincerely believe that all vaccines are safe, adverse reactions are rare, and no peer-reviewed scientific studies exist showing that vaccines can cause harm. This book -- Miller's Review of Critical Vaccine Studies -- provides the other side of the story that is not commonly told. It contains summaries of 400 important scientific papers to help parents and researchers enhance their understanding of vaccinations.
"This book should be required reading for every doctor, medical student and parent. Reading this book will allow you to make better choices when considering vaccination."
--David Brownstein, MD
"Neil Miller's book is a tour de force and a clarion voice championing the cautionary principle: 'When in doubt, minimize risk.' Let's talk science. Read this book. The truth will keep you and your children protected." --Bradford S. Weeks, MD
"This is a well-researched work that raises a number of important considerations about our current vaccination practices. Through studies with commentaries, the reader is led on a journey that bypasses the typical myopic view our society has toward vaccines." --Brandon Horn, PhD, JD, LAc, Chief Academic Officer, American University of Complementary Medicine

Additional Studies Linking Vaccines and Cancer
The studies below provide additional evidence of scientific links between vaccines and cancer, including leukemia, lymphomas, and chromosome changes leading to mutations. Studies also document links between the polio vaccine, a monkey virus (SV-40), mesotheliomas, brain tumors, bone cancers, and more.
