HAHAHAHAHAHA the polio vaccine also cause cancer and cost many many people their lives. my 70 year old grandfather doesnt even trust vaccinations anymore
you mean the contaminated version that was found to contain the SV40 virus? yeah there is no link between the vaccine and cancer because of SV40, in fact there is no evidence any polio vaccines cause an increase in cancer.
i think the lives that were saved outweighs any loss, everything is dangerous when you get down to it, do we ban things because a small number of people die from them? no, we only ban things if the vast majority died, since it is dangerous to everyone.
i'm not sure why you bring up your grandfather, i don't think him being your grandfather or 70 makes him an authority on anything.
i could say my dad says vaccines are awesome, but what does that prove? we need to look at the statistics and whether it saves lives or not, not the opinion of any one person's experiences.

Maybe we should ask the Amish? Less cancer,allergies,diabetes and autism than the rest of us. Granted their diet probably plays a large part.
