I can't say that all vaccines have been bad. I just don't know. But I do suspect that the human body can handle a great number of things given proper nutrition and supplementation. I don't ever remember being given a flu vaccine. I get sick less than family members who get them.

What do you mean when you say, "Have fun with that"?
This is a very serious issue. Not funny at all.
If I were a young parent in 2008 I would more than likely refuse to get my children vaccinated. But I'm an old woman and have seen the ravages of many communicable diseases in my country and abroad.
I am concerned for the young children also. I don't want to see sick children nor do I want them to be hurt by vaccines.
I'm on the side of the children and I assume you are also.

The pros of vaccines vastly outweigh the cons imo...yes there are reactions in some children,but the vast majority of children are fine and immunized from lots of nasties...You should make a carefull decision,but like i said the benfits outweigh the risks.

What you have to ask yourself is do you believe that the Medical Community is trying to kill us off and why. Does it make any sense that the pharmaceutical industry would kill off their customers, decreasing their profits or is this idea just paranoid nonsense.
You need to research what it was like before these vaccines came along. You also have to ask why if these fears are well founded that our life expectancy keeps going up.
Twice in the last few days I've heard a report on the news that Measles cases are rising and it is due to Parents not vaccinating their children.
I'm old enough that we did not have many of these vaccines. I had to endure Mumps, Measles, Chicken Pox, the Whopping Cough and others as did most of my Peers. I remember many times that my Mother had to put me into a washtub of cool water to bring my fever down and the misery of the itching sores. One of the worst was the measles and I nearly died while running temperatures of over 104. I caught the Mumps as a teenager and I can't tell you how bad that is at that age. Many Parents exposed their children to the Mumps at a young age on purpose so they would not have to go through the swollen testes and possible sterility as a result as I did.
I personally believe that the anti-vaccination crowd are spewing paranoid nonsense and it is dangerous to their own children and their lives. Children I sat next to in school died from these now preventable diseases. Diseases like the measles are so virulent that one kid in a class can infect a large part of the children in the entire school.
Since not getting the vaccination is literally putting your children's lives at risk, you owe it to them to forget ATS and instead have this discussion with an MD that you trust.
Tell them your concerns and ask for advice. Advice from total strangers who may or may not be delusional or paranoid on ATS is a bad idea when your child's life may depend on what you decide.

Have you seen what the diseases these vaccines prevent can do to kids?
And are you aware of the tiny, tiny amount of things like mercury (bound up in relatively bioinavailable thimerosal) in the tenth of a cc or so of vaccine a kid gets? We're talking about homeopathic quantities here - fractions of a part per million.
One part per million of aluminum in an injection does not a sheet of Reynplds Foil make. Going to give up organic food because of the thousand parts per million or so of fly and rat excreta in your bulgur? Me neither.
Moreover, that list of "ingredients" is a work of clumsy fiction. "Tissue from aborted fetuses?" Where did you get that?
I used to work in hospitals. I've seen kids from refugee families doubled up in pain and with horrible lesions from diseases preventable by vaccinations they didn't get. Want to see that in your very own family? Don't vaccinate your kids.
