Do you think that mothers who don't vaccinate might know something that we don't?

" WASHINGTON -- A federal study of mercury contamination has found the toxic substance in every fish tested at 291 streams nationwide, a finding that underscores how extensive mercury pollution has become.

The US Geological Survey tested thousands of fish from 1998 to 2005. Only about a quarter had mercury levels exceeding what the EPA says is safe for eating. "

My family eats fish so I'm guessing that our stomach would help to "filter" the toxin (mercury) but since reading many posts about the vaccines I was wondering...

If anyone can share any thoughts about how our bodies "dispose" of the mercury injected when we are vaccinated?

Is there a difference between mercury swallow when we eat mercury in fish and the mercury we get through our vaccines?

  • Yes, I think non vaxing Moms know something that vaxing Moms dont. I also believe you will find a difference in lifestyles too. A person that does not vaccinate has to have an open mind and be willing to learn new ideas even if they are outside the box. I also believe you will see many similarities in the non vaxing community such as eating organic food, breastfeeding, AP, co-sleeping, cloth diapers, no to over the counter meds and no to prescription meds etc etc. I am not saying all of them believe this but you will see many things on this list as apart of their parenting style or lifestyle. Ingredients play a HUGE factor in my decision not to vax, but it also not the only reason. I do not believe vaccinations work. here are a couple sources if you are interested..

  • No, mercury is no longer used in vaccines given to children. They started that when my first was born (though you had to request it back then). And that was almost 8 years ago, it is now standard that no mercury in vaccines given to kids.

  • mercury is mercury. It's poisonous no matter how it gets in your body. If your worried about Mercury, eat fresh water fish. Salt water fish has more murcury.

  • Research pictures of children who were'nt vaccinated on the web it's horrible. I don't think vaccines need to be given to preemies until they are of age and weight, that can be dangerous and I see docotrs do it all the time.
