A lot of shots are you being infected with the virus. This either makes it so you don't get the virus or you don't get it as bad.. like the N1h1 (pig flu) if you don't get that shot for your children and they get it they die not get a little sick die. All my children had the chicken pox shot and none of them got a rash or broke out in anything. I got the chicken pox from my oldest kid and I can tell you its much worse on an adult. When My oldest got it there wasn't a shot. She run around like it was just another day. I laid in bed thinking I might die any time now!! Shots are important and if they were causing deaths etc the government would take it off the market you see it everyday. I understand taking it off the market after a death isn't the best. I'm worried about this new shot their giving little girls for cancer and not in any hurry to run her to the doctor to get it. I figured I'd wait until its been on the market for a while to read up on it then... that's my job. In a few years when I check into it and every things looking good she'll get one if not she won't. Its hard because we love our kids but at the same time if we don't get their shots they could die. We don't have small pox anymore because of shots.. THANK THE GOOD LORD ABOVE!
Do you guys have any idea what our government has done all throughout history? 1940 Tuskegee experiment.. President Clinton wasn't too worried about "what was on the market". I'm not into government conspiracies but you people need to wake up and look around. When you give the government everything they ask for we have nothing left. And about what is in immunizations.. Detectable amounts of mercury are in most.. Go ahead, ask next time you go.. I have. I'm not saying don't get them but at least be aware of what you are putting in your own body and your children's just because the government says it's safe. See for yourself and have a mind of your own.

Personally, I think you're a shill for Big Pharma, sent to embarrass and make the alternative medicine industry look like nutballs and discredit their information.

Why do you take money from Pfizer?

So you seem to think that the national enquirer is a reliable, reputable source. You are an idiot.

Perhaps you need to explain how y'all came to this conclusion.
Where's the two and two you put together.
Running your mouth is easy how about some effort on your part.

It is a sign of a person who is has a view that cannot be supported with sound evidence that those who disagree with that view are unable or unwilling to think for themselves.

It is to be noted that those who rely on anecdotal evidence and misinformation from unreliable sources are the ones who cannot think for themselves.

It is not clear tahat you understand what research is. You need to avoid wiki's and you need to understand the difference between anecdotal evidence you get from national enquirer and jenny and real scientiifc evidence. Few conspiracy theorists are able to grasp the difference.

As a pediatric nurse, I strongly recommend immunizations. I researched it because of having children myself, and I do not believe autism is related. I have worked with many children with autism and you can see autistic symptoms early on, but can not dignose until later. There has been no evidence its related. There is evidence however that immuinizations stop the spread of dangerous diseases, and if you think chicken pox is no big deal then you have never seen a baby die from complications. Again this is my personal belief and I believe if your child is going t be in a public place they should have to be updated on immunizations, children who are not should not expose children who may be to young to have shots. I have friends who have children with autism so I understand the fear, but I believe its not related. knowledge is power so know all the facts before you decide what is best for your family.

Autism comes from the babies parents not from a shot.
Something is screwed up in one of the parents genes.

Give your children the shots and save lifes.

You are making outragious claims about medical research and the health profession. You are the one that needs to provide the real evidence for these claims.

Innocent until proven guilty. Innocence need not be proven. You are unable to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt because your sources are shit.

It is you who have no mind of your own. That is why you have been fooled by crap passiing as science.

No Idiot. I have looked at both sides of this issue. When you have a government that has zero credibility and drug companies that kill and destroy lives with their toxic wares and are fully aware of it, this is in my book criminal activity.
You can throw out all your scientific babble and it will never erase what has and continues to be done in the name of profit.
So you take your crap and shove it.

You are the fool. Language that includes "zero credibility" , "scientific babble", and "kill and destroy" suggest your mind has been closed from the beginning.

Whatever is driving your opinion about this matter has nothing to do with science.
