Myths as they relate to not vaccinating

Here are a list of myths that people use to not vaccinate and basically why the rationale does not work:


1. Autism is caused by vaccinations


Truth: So far, 10 studies involving thousands of children have yet to find any connection between the MMr vaccination and autism. The original paper suggesting a connection between the two was formally retracted by 10 0f 13 authors in 2004


*The type of mercury in thermisol does not accumulate in the body. So how can it be harmful?


* Autism rates have continued to rise even after the drug companies phased out thermisol in 2001.

And go ahead and prove with ONE study that says SIDS cases are DEFINETLY (not thought to or linked to) proven to be caused by vaccinations. Or please don't bring this up again unless you state it as an opinion.

UNLESS....


In the 1970s, measles infections were observed to cause regression of pre-existing cancerous tumors in children.


Yes, getting the measles can also have a benefit.

So, in going to your link - I couldn't help but notice the following quote by Dr. Proffit:


"Since the late 1990s, many studies have shown that the rates of autism are the same in vaccinated and unvaccinated children," Dr. Offit writes. "The CDC , the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Institute of Medicine have all issued statements supporting these studies."


Can you please provide the studies (Wow,

Obviously I cannot. If I could, the deaths wouldn't be labeled as SIDS, now would they? I am wholeheartedly convinced that deaths from vaccines get labeled as SIDS. I don't believe 100% of SIDS cases were caused by vaccines, but definitely some percentage. I don't need some formal study to tell me this. I did read a book that lead me to believe this more solidly. The pro-vaxers dismiss this book and PhD author any time I mention it. I believe it.

Based on the fact that you just sent me to a link to buy a book written by an Author who is too blinded by dollar signs to even back-up his claims then I'm guessing you don't put a lot of faith into studies. Is he hoping that the people reading his book are too ignorant to notice that it's full of opinions (not facts) with little or nothing to back them up? A better name for the book would be: *Opinions*, from a diehard pharmaceutical investor and vaccine maker.

I don't need studies - not when they end with some BS about being "inconclusive"! Common sense is readily available...

On the left you have billions of vaccinated children with various autoimmune disorders and brain injury.

On the right you have ??? vaccinated children with various autoimmune disorders and brain injury.

The evidence is CLEARLY right before your eyes! Maybe some people just need to open them?

{{{There are several options for flu vaccine for pregnant women and children ..}}}

Do you seriously think these options are being given to the majority? Do you seriously think the majority are even aware there are options?

I would dare to suggest that most parents wouldn't even be able to name every shot their child received in a visit, much less what dose of mercury may or may have not been included. And I also doubt most pregnant women know enough to even question what shot they are getting.

I know how ignorant I was of the vaccines, and I don't think I was an exception.


If you're questioning vaccines or not vaccinating at all, stop by the Non-Vaccine Support Board that I proudly host: http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-ppnonvaccine

This is absoutely not true. There is NO benefit to getting a communicable diseases and there can be many more risks than the risk that is in the vaccine. So, would you cut off your breast to prevent breast cancer. People who think this way are playing dangerous games with your children not protecting them from these "seemingly" harmless diseases
