How does the body work? How do vaccines work?

This is an excellent article. I think very few people understand the basics in this article and I highly encourage everyone to read this regardless of vaccination choices:

Few people seem to grasp:

1) what the immune system is and how it works

2) what vaccines are and how they work

Most people don't even know what's in the vaccines, or what all the little letters stand for lol. In fact, I've had people refuse to believe that vaccines contain human dna from aborted humans (10 vaccines in the US) or that mercury is still in some vaccines (in trace amount in several, and in substantial amounts in some flu vaccines).

For example, most people who vaccinate have never bothered to even look at the CDC's reported disease list. I like to look at it once a week:

And they are all scared of keeping their children vaccine-free, but they've probably never seen this little government site on deaths:

If they can't be bothered to even check out pro-vaccine sites, then it's a sure bet they've never used this search tool to check out the government's vaccine reaction database:

I wonder how many vaccinating parents ever think to ask for the ACTUAL manufacturer inserts that come with each vaccine. They should be saved along with the insurance bill in your child's file in case your child experiences an adverse reaction. Fortunately, the manufacturers do not hide anything. You can read all of THEIR information. Just pick the vaccine you want and click:

Perhaps the most shocking cliche is how many parents adamantly defend vaccines and choose to vaccinate their children, yet completely ignore the American Academy of Pediatrics advice on rearfacing children in carseats.

The AAP states:
"They should remain rear-facing until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their car safety seat’s manufacturer."

The NHTSA also claims more than 80% of carseats are installed incorrectly. In 2008, more than 250,000 children were severely injured (disabled) in car accidents, and 10% of those injured children went on to die.

The CDC says:
"Motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death among children in the U.S.1 But many of these deaths can be prevented. Placing children in age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.2 "

So 4 children a DAY die in a car accident. But parents put their children into a car (probably incorrectly buckled) to go to the doctor to vaccinate their children to the hilt for diseases that were declining/disappearing long before vaccine introduction...and diseases that don't KILL.

Sounds stupid to me but what do I know...I'm just a crazy person out there that likes to exaggerate data...right?

  1. People pick and choose who they want to listen to, when they want to listen to it. It'd be nice if there was some consistency though. LOL
