    I had a chuckle at the comments about vaxxing being junk science

    They simply just delay vaccinations, so don't do them to schedule at 2,4 months etc.
    I'm not sure why, maybe they are under the preconception that kids are less likely to get reactions if they are older. Some of course will do it for reasons such as severe illness in the child, or severe egg allergy.

    they just delay the vaxx time, so a Varacella vax (chicken pox) is 2 years. Some may leave it until 3 or 4 when they believe their systems can handle it better.

    We delayed our childtens vaccinations. Rather than starting at 2 months old, DS1 had his first vaccinations 2 months ago, at the age of 4 years old. DS2 had his first lot of vaccinations at the same time, at 2 years old. DD is fully vaccinated to schedule (she's 5yo - didn't know that we were able to select/decline vaccinations), DS3 is yet to be vaccinated (he's 12wks old).

    We selectively chose certains vaccines we wanted them to have and declined others

Anyone know anything about this whole profit margin issue?
    I think they make a 'little' money from them


    H1N1 swine flu vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline released its fourth quarter profits today. The company's profits are $2.6 billion. The boost comes from Swine Flu vaccine purchases.

    The world’s second largest drug maker by revenue, GlaxoSmithKline, profits are up 66 percent, according to International Business Times.
    In the last three months of 2009, the drug company netted $2.6 billion in profit, compared to more than $1 billion the year prior. The strong finish, according to ABC News, pushed full-year profits up 20 percent, or approximately $7 billion.

    I don't deny the pharma companies are making a lot of money. That doesn't mean vaccines don't work in 90% cases. If they didn't work, govts all around the world wouldn't be buying the vaxxes and they would not make any money.

    But is this a sustainable profit? They make loads of other drugs too. Swine flu was a big one sure, but there may not be a big push for that vax in coming years... Interesting.

Yep its not that same in everyone as everyones exposure and tolerance to the environmental toxins and the vaccines is different. Even the Amish cant get away from the toxins in their air, water and soil that werent there just a few generations ago.

    Nope I have no links, no statistics( they can be doctored too ya know) I just look at the bigger picture and use my common sense.
    Just read this and thought i would share my view...sorry it is not directly related to vax...which I support wholeheartedly btw. Anyway, I think that the problem with finding a cause of autism is a bit misguided...obviously blaming it on vaccines and the environment seems to be. I have been doing lots of research because of my son and have come to the conclusion that these people are just wired differently...and when I think about how amazingly gifted and intelligent my son is, I can't help but wonder where the world would be if it were not for these great brains labelled as 'autistic'. Albert Einstein for example is believed to have been autistic. I understand not all children on the autistic spectrum present as gifted, this is just my personal experience with my child. But as a parent I really don't think there is anything wrong with my child, I think there is something wrong with a society that just doesn't understand him. I am not looking to blame anyone or anything for who he is and I can't wait to see why he contributes to the world.
