    Default What claims against vaccines have you heard/believe?

    Just out of curiosity.

    Claims (true or not) that I have heard include:
    ● vaccines cause autism; auto-immune disease; allergies and several other health issues
    ● they're a money making scheme
    ● they're given as a form of population control*
    ● they can give you the very thing you're being vaccinated against
    ● they are unnecessary because the VPDs are no longer an issue due to better living conditions
    ● some VPDs are worth catching in childhood
    ● the varicella vaccine can cause shingles
    ● the VPDs are not as fatal as made out to be and or can be cured with home remedies and/or medical intervention

    *apparently affluent people including the British Monarchy, Bill Gates, George Bush and many others are part of a ploy to remove the more needy in our world [including those in third world countries, the elderly and disabled] by way of lethal vaccines. It goes further in depth and more crazy if you want to look it up.


    I'm sure there are more that I've heard...

    I think you covered it for me!!

    It's interseting to know that the Vitamin industry make huge amounts more then the vax industy..but yet no one seems to care

    vax at about 27 bill
    Vit around 32 bill

    do people have concerns of long term affects of vit use?..on average Americans take up to 12 vit tablets a day...

    - that vaccines are high in heavy metals
    - that homeopathy is a suitable alternative to vaccination
    - that bovine colostrum is a good alternative to flu vax
    - that vaccines are made from aborted foetuses
    - that "big pharma" is in fact tricking the govt into buying vaccines that make us sick
    - that vaccines don't actually work at all

    Add this to your list, that's all I can think of at the moment

    Familiar with all the ones already mentioned.

    Personally the only thing I worry about is the number of vaccines in one sitting on such an immature immune system.

    My fear every time we go for one is that he will be one of those unlucky kids who it triggers in underlying disease in....

    Rationally I understand that if it's there then something at some point will inevitably trigger it but it still panics me...

    I truly believe in the science of vaccines though so I have vaccinated DS in spite of these fears.

    We know some immune suppressed kids and adults who cannot be vaccinated and I feel strongly that we need to surround them with vaccinated people.

    You missed my favourite one;

    "Measels is a gift from god" - Oh yes, AVN classic. I love it. I am sure that the 158000 people who died from it last year are so honored to be so blessed.
