Tetanus: the disease versus the vaccine
By Ingri Cassel (Reprinted from the Fall/Winter 2001 VacLib Letter)
Walene James, the founder of Vaccination Liberation and author of
Immunization: The Reality Behind the Myth, has received several inquiries
regarding the tetanus vaccine. Most of these calls are from concern of
developing tetanus due to refusing the vaccine. After all, this is what
they have been told all of their lives: tetanus is a very serious illness
that will likely result from a deep puncture wound, the disease is deadly,
and the only reliable way to prevent tetanus is by receiving an injection
of the tetanus vaccine.
Tetanus is a problem of wound hygiene; not vaccination status. Tetanus has
not been eliminated in this country and is reported to be most prevalent in
nursing homes. It is in these places that bedridden patients develop
decubitus ulcers or bedsores that are not properly cared for. The tetanus
spore thrives in an open wound that has gotten dirty and is deprived of
oxygen. There is nothing about developing tetanus and recovering that can
impart immunity to this disease. If a person is careless about wound
hygiene s/he may get it again and again regardless of his/her vaccination
Wound hygiene consists of cleansing the wound properly and keeping it
clean. In the case of a deep puncture wound, be sure it bleeds and clean it
with hydrogen peroxide.I always stop the bleeding, once cleaned, with
60,000 H.U. or stronger cayenne pepper. Cayenne pepper is a wonderful
antiseptic and styptic (equalizes blood pressure and stops bleeding). If
the wound is severe and may require stitching or surgery, it is good to
know about comfrey root powder and basic natural healing principles.
As with all vaccines, the tetanus vaccine used today is toxic. Leon
Chaitow, author of Vaccination and Immunization: Dangers, Delusions and
Alternatives, stated that one thousandth part of a milliliter of the broth
in which the tetanus bacillus is grown, is enough to kill a guinea pig if
injected into it.

Elevated Antitoxin Titers in a Man with Generalized Tetanus.
"...This report describes severe, generalized tetanus in a 29-year old man
who had received a primary series as a child and two booster injections.
Serum obtained before administration of tetanus immune globulin showed
antibody titers to tetanus greater than 100 times the level considered
My comments. The person had a history of amphetamine abuse...and although
some drugs such as strychnine which is commonly used in street drugs as a
"cutting" agent, and others such as haloperidol, piperazines and some
antidepressants can cause muscles spasms reminiscent of tetanus, these
drugs can be identified in the urine.
I have personally known only one person who had tetanus. She was 26, had
also had a primary schedule and more than one booster, though she didn't
know how many. She was an alcoholic, smoked like a train and lived on
In addition, in Russia in the last diphtheria epidemic, most of the deaths
were in immunized homeless alcoholics. Says something, don't you think....
And finally, one former VacLib member told us of her experience having
tetanus. She was in her mid-forties and had cut her foot on a heating vent
in the floor. Keep in mind that this wound was deprived of oxygen since she
likely wore shoes and socks on a daily basis. She told us that she was
quite ill for about two months. She recovered completely by detoxifying her
body through colon cleansing, modified fasting and taking high quality
