F.A.Q.

ANSWERED QUESTIONS

  1. Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease. Why do I need to vaccinate my newborn?
  2. Does the MMR vaccine cause autism?
  3. Are childhood vaccines mandatory?
  4. Are homeopathic solutions an alternative to vaccines?
  5. If vaccines work, why does an unvaccinated child pose a risk to a vaccinated one?

QUESTIONS BEING CONSIDERED FOR ANSWERS

Why do we vaccinate?

Is it true that unvaccinated children never get autism?

Can one get sick even if they are fully vaccinated?

Why should I vaccinate for polio if the disease hasn’t infected anyone in the US for decades?

If contracting the disease naturally creates immunity, why should I vaccinate my child?

Is there antifreeze in the vaccines?

I hear some vaccines contain mercury called thimerosal. Isn’t mercury toxic? Doesn’t that mean vaccines will be toxic to my child?

Some people say that vaccines caused autism in their children. Is that true?

I hear that some vaccines have aborted fetus cells in them. Is that true?

What are the most common side effects of vaccines?

What are some of the less common side effects of vaccines?

If immunization is so safe, and all of the other children are immunized, then the immunized children are safe from the threat of my non immunized children right?

    A causal statement is a strong statement to be proven. However, a strong linkage exists between MMR, MMR components, and Autism. While some general studies may not show linkage because they are taken across a wide population, when the studies focus on the at-risk populations, linkages and possible causality exist. Given the intense financial pressure to subdue such information, readers should read with caution any study that summarily dismisses a lack of causality but also must not jump to conclusions not supported by the facts. For more facts see http://english2016.wordpress.com/mmr-and-autism http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/vsd/mmrv.htm
    http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/vis/downloads/vis-mmr.pdf paying particular attention to the warning that some people “should NOT get the MMR” (those high risk groups including those with autoimmune disorders.) Note: Baby eczema can be an indicator of autoimmune allergic reactions. http://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/2009/07/05/wakefieldreplicated/ which does a more thorough analysis than the cursory search of literature mentioned in your post.

      Dear English desk, it is true that some people should not get the vaccine if they are already sick with certain autoimmune disorders, but I think you’re getting confused. They’re referring to people that are already sick, how do you go from that to “a strong linkage exists between MMR, MMR components, and Autism”?

    http://vimeo.com/31036452 Good video that is free to watch about vaccines and some questions about the lack of research carried out. Also talking about the issues of the placebo drugs containing Aluminium and other not required additives…..WHY? I have an issue with the long term effects of the additives within the vaccines. This Aluminium is very different from an ingested compound. I am worried that there is inconstancy within the information given on the FDA website. Diane Harper (lead researcher for Gardasil Vaccine Trials) says if girls/women to go for cervical smears tests there is no need for the vaccine at all! Why are we vaccinating boys now?

    No one has ever measured the levels of aluminum absorption into the bloodstream, then excretion into the urine and out of the body, when it is injected into the skin and muscle of human infants. All the FDA and AAP documents say is it may be a problem, but we haven’t studied it yet, so we should limit aluminum in injectible solutions. But no one is talking about the levels in vaccines…why?

    It is likely that the FDA feels the kidneys of healthy infants work well enough to excrete this aluminum rapidly before it can circulate through the body, accumulate in the brain, and cause toxic effects. However, I can’t find any references in the FDA documents that show that using aluminum in vaccines has been tested in human infants and found to be safe. My study will continue but as everyone could understand from the ‘Scientific Evidence’ page so many studies are missing. WHY are we not studying internal aluminium rather than looking for outside reactions? Where does the 4 to 5 mcg per kilogram per day safety limit come from? No studies have been done!

    Cochrane Collaboration (a group that looks at healthcare issues around the world) investigated aluminum in vaccines and published their findings in The Lancet Infectious Diseases in 2004. This group reviewed all the side effect testing for one particular aluminum-containing vaccine (DTP) and looked for any evidence that an aluminum-containing vaccine caused more side effects than non-aluminum vaccines. Other than more redness, swelling and pain at the injection site, they didn’t find any indications that an aluminum-containing vaccine caused any problems. WHY not investigate the distribution of Aluminium internally rather than sitting waiting for an outside reaction???What prompted their investigation? According to the Lancet journal, there have been suspected cases of aluminum causing various neurologic and degenerative problems. The Cochrane Collaboration wanted to look at a very large study group to see if there was a real correlation. They didn’t find any problems with aluminum in vaccines and concluded that no further research should be undertaken on this topic. That’s a pretty bold statement. Most researchers will make a conclusion on research findings, but it’s unusual to go so far as to say that no one else should do any more research into the matter.

    This is especially surprising because the Cochrane group didn’t actually study aluminum metabolism itself. They didn’t test aluminum levels in kids after vaccination. They didn’t explore whether or not the amount of aluminum in vaccines builds up in the brain or bone tissues. They just looked for evidence of visible symptoms of toxicity without even looking for internal aluminum effects. And they didn’t even do their own research. They simply reviewed all available studies done by other people. Also, they only looked at one aluminum-containing vaccine instead of testing all four at once. The Cochrane group essentially closed the book on aluminum without ever really opening it…..the truth is until these studies are done we will never be able to say it’s safe!
