All underdeveloped nations and their peoples have received vaccinations for a plethora of diseases some of which no longer pose any threat like smallpox, measles, etc, not to say there are not newly emerging pathogens. However there are some folk who through the favourable fertility of their soil and salt ocean hygiene bases such as the Pacific peoples had longer life spans and low infant mortality rates.
My point is that historically speaking the world's population is booming due to increased longevity and low infant mortality rates in modern industrial capitalist Western nations, as boring and drearingly regulated and controlled by authority that it is.
