This chart is; but generally the infant mortality rate statistics are used to show that all the doctor interventions (from hospital births and c-sections to immunizations and medicines) aren't helping us they are hurting our infant mortality rates. More children are dying in the US than other developed countries which have a more hands off approach

It lists vaccines but I am sure it has to do with much more. It shatters the misconception that vaccines are somehow a savior though.

It is sad. Didn't Japan do a study of vaccines and children under the age of two. They didn't start vaccinating until after the child was two. And the SIDS rate went down drastically but then they went back to vaccinating at infants. There was a correlation. I don't remember where I read that but if someone has a link please post. Wish U.S.A followed suit. If only they would do the same study. Maybe they could see and compare numbers. But then companies may lose out on money? IS that it?

Do people really think that science can objectively hold two position 1 over population 2 maintaining health ofthe living. Vaccines are meant to "trim the flock".

I was just having this discussion yesterday. Ricki Lake did a documentary called "The Business of Being Born" it is really eye opening. Our health care for pregnancy, birth, and infancy is deplorable.

In Milwaukee the infant mortality rate is higher than that of a 3rd world country. But it isn't from immunizations, it's from women co-sleeping and suffocating their babies. True story.

 I would question the results, America's reporting system is second to none where many of the coutries listed rarely use hospitals and don't have to report births.....even Italy up until the last few decades only recorded baptisms and not live or dead births....
