I have decided that I don't want to vaccinate my daughter for various reasons such as- Autism, chemicals and mercury. Why would I want to inject my child with poison? I believe with proper nutrition my daughter will have a healthy natural immune system, rather than a chemically induced one. I was wondering who else does not vaccinate there children and how old they are, why you have chosen not to and if you think life is harder wit this decision?

  • Good Luck to you. Some schools will not accept children who have not been vaccinated

  • I don't vaccinate my children because of the nasty chemicals in them and the serious adverse reactions that can happen - seizures, diabetes, arthritis, death. Those are listed in the package inserts for the non believers. Here is some more info that goes along w/why I don't vaccinate:
    -- CDC's list of ingredients. Formaldehyde (known to cause cancer!), aluminum, polysorbate 80, mouse brains, monkey kideny, aborted fetal tissue (human diploid tissue)
    -- Mercury is still in these vaccines
    -- Package inserts that come with every vaccine. Doctors usually don't just hand them out though. You have to ask for them. Look over ALL of the adverse reactions. Death, arthritis, siezures, diabetes, etc.

  • Life is no harder, and schools have an exemption form. My son was fully vaccinated, and was sick all the time honestly. My daughters aren't (older one had 2 sets, and new one has had none) and neither one has had so much as a cold. I have medical reason for not doing it (my kids react horribly, and it could turn deadly). Make sure you have fully researched your decision mama. Good luck

  • -- The VAERS data summary. The FDA states that only 10% of vaccine injuries ever get reported. Here is that 10%. So what is the REAL number? Vaccine injuries aren't rare, just rarely reported.
    -- That is an unbiased website. You can also find your state's exemption from vaccines there.
    -- Wonderful page! You can click on the Exemption Page to find forms to fill out for your state's exemptions
    -- Graph showing the decline in death rates BEFORE the vaccines were introduced. They source their information right on the graph. Please note that this graph will look different than the CDC's graph.

    Note that this graph is not death rate of measles. It is the incidence of infection. The death rate of measles had already declined significantly by the time of the vaccination's introduction. Likely due to the improvement and increased availability of health care. Of course my graph and the CDC's graph is different. Both accurate I believe, but are covering two different things. Also, when the CDC quotes death rates from the measles, they're quoting WORLDWIDE figures (including 3rd-world countries without access to medical care, clean water, or sewer systems). This graph shows only the US death rates.

  • -- A film by doctor Sherri Tenpenny. She has spent well over 8,000 hours now researching this and is considered an expert.
    --I would also say that vaccines predominantly stimulate Th2 in the immune system and not the Th1 unlike natural immunity which stimulates both Th1 and Th2. When there is too much stimulation with the Th2 it can lead to auto-immune conditions. It is very important that children fully develop both Th1 and Th2 as Th1 is also very important in the body's ability to prevent cancer among other things.

  • There are many groups here for moms like you. Check them out... I have never, and will never, vaccinate my children. We have never had an issue and have had many people in the medical and child development fields commend our disition... All public schools HAVE to take them as do any other public orginazation, because there are NO LAWS that REQUIRE them to be vaccinated!

    You are however going to end up with pages and pages of nasty messages on here from moms that know everything. It's really best to stick the the groups with questions like this, just because it will keep all the nasty comments to a minimum...

    Let me know if you need anything!
