This seems to be more of an anti-vaccine board, but what the heck, I'll throw it out there. Anyone read this? :

http://parenting.ivillage.com/slideshow/parenting/the_truth_about_vaccines_and_autism/do_vaccines_cause_autism.html

Seems pretty cut and dry, Vaccines DONT cause autism. They haven't been PROVEN to cause anything else (yes, you may have theories because all those evil "chemicals" must cause something right? But that isn't evidence based). They HAVE been PROVEN to nearly eradicate many deadly diseases. I mean, come on, are any of you pediatricians or an internist? Have any of you actually seen these diseases that you refuse to vaccinate your children against? No, you haven't because the rest of us are vaccinating our children.

I had a really long post, and iV ate it. Oh well, probably best, I would have violated the TOU anyway and probably been reported.

Judging by your non-specific claims and inflammatory drive by trolling, I'll guess you're not interested in actually debating anyway. Troll on.

They may have removed Thimerosol, but in many cases they replaced it with Aluminum which my boys had a high level of when we tested them.

I just don't get it though. What are the "costs" besides theoretical? Versus the proven benefits, for example: your child has 95-100% chance of never acquiring the Haemophilus influenzae type b bacteria and getting, say, bacterial meningitis or pneumonia from it.

Yes, it is true that we live in a culture with access to clean drinking water and sanitation services, but 1.3 out of every 100,000 children in the US still get it and you don't vaccinate your child from it based on what research? and anecdotal evidence doesn't count.

What do you mean by theoretical 'costs'?


Regarding Hib, we've never been in a situation to place us in high risk of contracting the disease. Currently, my children are almost over the threshold of the 'at risk' age group of contracting the disease at 90%. (no hospitalizations, no history of ear of infections, no weakened immune system
