Recently a friend of mine shared an article written on Washington Post a while ago about vaccines. This seems to be one of the popular articles that seems to be making rounds in the social media as well even though it is pretty old. As I read through the article, I realized that all the information presented in the article lacked in depth research. I am adding the information that everyone needs to know for each of the questions in the article above. These are my answers to the same questions in the article.
- Why do kids have to get so many shots at once?
The response fails to inform the readers about the ingredients present in the vaccines but instead only talks about the benefits of the CDC designed vaccine schedule. The ingredients are listed in the CDC website and it is not just the virus or bacteria. Read the list of ingredients present in each vaccine here( http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf ).
- Isn’t getting all these shots hard on the immune system of such young children?
Again a misleading response which builds on the first. The response misleads the readers to think that only the virus or bacteria is present in the vaccines. This is not true. Still no mention of mercury, aluminum, MSG and several questionable ingredients. We don’t expose infants and children to the harmful substances present in the vaccines around our house. (more…)
