Firstly, great job in the Nazi comparison! Because wanting to wipe out disease is exactly the same as trying to take over the world and kill 6 million + people! Bravo!
I am also deeply appreciative of your efforts to help bring back fun times like whooping cough, measles,and mumps! because you know, kids today are wimps.
Sorry for the sarcasm and vitriol. I appreciate you are just looking out for your kids. I really do. But the whole anti-vaccine thing is based on naught but fear and fraudulent "research". And Jim Carrey, who is an expert in...nothing?

I recently developed a nut allergy. It's ridiculous, I've eaten or handled nuts my whole life with never a problem. I suspect the reason I now have the allergy is that I have reacted badly to a spider /insect bite.
It's not just about eating nuts, I can't be in the same room as a nut without suffering severe breathing problems. If I handle nuts the skin on my hands breaks and it looks as if I have been playing with razor blades.
I imagine it could be worse for little kids who haven't had a prior lifetime of 'immunity to nuts' - so I'm not surprised that schools are having to be extra careful.

Vaccines and the Peanut Allergy Epidemic
Deny ignorance by informing yourself.

Look at the dates when the vaccines came out. Look at graphs marking the decline of the disease by date. At the very least it should make you wonder.
SOMETHING is causing autism, allergies, cancers, and other diseases. To immediately discount vaccines as at least being part of the issue is denying ignorance? Both sides of the debate have been caught fudging the numbers.
The fact that you can't even sue if a vaccine kills your kids doesn't make you wonder? Anytime someone forces something/anything upon me or my children it immediately sends up warning flags. People who have been vaccinated have been found to spread the very thing they are supposed to be immune to.
So sick of hearing the science is settled BS. Neither side knows for sure the long term ramifications of dozens of vaccines. Far far more serious independent study needs to be done, and for some reason we aren't getting that.

That is an interesting article on vaccines being related to peanut allergies. I was never sold on the vaccines cause autism thing but I was always wondering about other potential effects and also wondered about the different ways they manufactured and synthesized vaccines. In general in theory vaccines should be safe when used appropriately, however, just like all things how is the quality control? Are there regular inspections and studies?
Supposedly you guys in America are expected to give your children 60+ vaccines which is ridiculous is this number true?

I call BS on the proper monitoring of side effects. Go back and read my anecdote.
My son is a beautiful, happy, energetic, intelligent guy and I intend to keep it that way. I'll take whooping cough over brain damage any day.
