Could any of those "Childhood Immunizations" have caused many of these illnesses today?

As a child, I, myself. and many others have received multiple immunization injections prior to being admitted into school for the first time and a few years afterwards.

I can still remember the big, silver "injection gun" with the many, tiny needles that has left a round scar the size of a penny on my left arm as a lifetime reminder too this incident in my life.

As I look around at other people who fall into my age category (+/- a few years) it makes me wonder if any of what I see, as well as hear has anything to do with these "so called" immunizations?


I see a rather high percentage of people my age in wheelchairs, some are so obese that they need motorized scooters to move about, some have cancer, many have type 2 diabetes, some are now going blind, a few have developed mental health issues, but what really shocks me is the extremely "high" rate of autism here in my home state of New Jersey, which is number one for it's population / incident ratio!

I have a son who is autistic, and sometimes I wonder how much of this was caused by me, his mother, the environment (New Jersey was #1 in producing chemicals and polluting the air and water at one time) as well as these so called immunizations.
Wondering so causes me to factor in so much more of what I see, as well as hear on a daily basis especially when I am at the hospital.

All factors considered, things just don't seem to add up sometimes, but then again "maybe" just "maybe" I am making something out of nothing!

I hail from a state that sees a higher than normal Multiple Sclorosis rate. Also some cancers. There are those who blame wind patterns and goverenmental weapons testing upwind from here.

Immunizations are the not cause. I think it is the environment were you live. Maryland and Pennsylvania had steel mills and coal mines, WVA has coal mines and your state has chemical plants. Factor in lead paint found in older homes, exhaust from motorized vehicles and this could lead to all kinds of health related issues.

I too look around and see older people in my age group with a multitude of illnesses just as you do. My community at one point had the highest AIDs rate in the Nation because of the highest drug use rate. it was so bad, at one point a non profit had an RV that did HIV/AIDS testing free of charge and they had needle exchange and dispensed free condoms.

Much of the medical problems people have can be attributed to genes, environment, lack of access to healthcare and their lifestyles. Immunization has wiped out polio and small pox in this country.

I have friends who will not have their children immunized and to get them in school they have to sign a waiver that they cannot hold the school, or government responsible for any illnesses the children have and they cannot bring their children in the building if they are ill unless they have medical documentation that their child does not have a communicable disease. Personally, I think that this could be a problem.

I think people should research illnesses that could stem from being immunized and maybe this will remove some of the apprehension of being immunized.

Immunizations have saved more lives than any other component of modern medicine!!!

Questions regarding possible adverse effects have been very active for many years. Probably because we're talking about children, tremendous scientific effort has taken place to answer these questions. It is abundantly clear that immunizations DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM. Thiomersal (mercury) content in vaccines has been dramatically diminished by drug companies due to marketing pressure. While I'm all for removing unnecessary preservatives, the science is totally clear however that thiomersal does not cause autism.

Vaccines may indeed contribute to allergies and asthma, but NOT diabetes.

I think it's important to add that during the same period of time that we all got immunizations, the number of industrial chemicals in the environment has grown exponentially! It is vastly more likely on a statistical basis that AUTISM and other illnesses are caused by several of these chemicals. The load of chemicals in our bodies from vaccines is trivial compared to this vast chemical soup that we are living in.

I have to say that could very well be true. I have family in Minnesota that all of the kids suffered from leukemia of some sort and require thyroid fixes. It never ran in the family and my family was free from those issues. There is a lot of garbage that we consume, breathe and touch in our every day lives.

I don't think you are making something out of nothing. Too often we shoot first and ask questions later. Look at all the FDA recalls. The same goes for unintended consequences of medicine. We fix one thing and break another.

I don't have all the research in my data files, but a lot is going on to make connections to much of our modern medicines and the fact that our bodies are not handling them very well. There are many theories out there and some are conspiracy theories, but they need looking into.

Our bodies were made to die. Medicine strives to keep the dead living. Why? I know we have a need inside to fix things, but sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.

Just recently, an ad for cancer centers are saying that the children who received chemo are now suffering from cancers related to the chemo. It is a mess.

On the other hand, we just want to find a place to lay blame. It makes us feel better if it is not our fault and we can blame (and subsequently sue) someone else. In our minds we struggle to make it make sense.

Sometimes faith needs to drive us, and allow us to accept that we are living the life we were meant to live. There are nuggets of inspiration in the struggle of life. When we take those away, perhaps we are just finding new ones?

Gabby, I love listening to and seeing the commercials on tv, and reading the ads for various medications and then looking at the list of possible complications that can result from them.
You are better off with the original ailment instead of the "possible" complications!

I love the hyper speed disclaimers. My vascular surgeon did the same hyper speed voice as he ran through the possible risks involved as I lay there waiting for the calm the victim down before surgery shot was working its way through me. He started out with his normal speaking cadence and rapidly speed up so I barely heard the "anddeath."

Mays I agree with the possible complications from the meds, if the illness doesn't kill you the side effects from the meds will. Although when you read the label, it is usually the first four side affects that are the most to be concerned with.

There is a strong suggestion that a component of many vaccines, "Thimerisol" (which is about 50% mercury) is the culprit in cases of Autism spectrum disorders and other learning disabilities see: ~ .

I also found this quite interesting ~
