Did anyone have them as a child? I did, and i swear i am allergic to more stuff now , than i was then. Esp. antibiotics, and other new allergies have cropped up over the years.. Latex, iodine, and a host of respiratory problems.. I can't help but wonder what exactly was in those shots, and how they have affected my immune system and general health, mental and physical. Like, did they have mercury in them or stuff like that? i remember my arm would hurt for three days after each one, and i pretty much grew up thinking my left arm was damaged, somehow, cuz of the shots. . I had them for 9 years. How much junk was i injected with? Will i be more susceptible to Alzheimer's? I have no way of finding out, either as it was 30 years ago, and the dr is no longer with us.

My husband had regular shots as a child, I often wonder how they may have affected him too. If you have seasonal allergies you should learn about the neti-pot. I used to have hives daily. I had the mercury removed from my mouth (fillings) and I rarely ever have hives now. I was told that I was allergic to all kinds of foods. The weird thing was that the tests (pricks all over my back and arms) would show different results from month to month. But that didn't stop the doctors from prescribing the drugs...I'd get a new one every few months.
