My young niece suffers from severe mental challenges resulting from Infantile Spasm Syndrome, which creates an outcome somewhat similar to autism. The situation, coincidentally or not, began right after a certain series of childhood vaccines. For years there have been purported links between autism and vaccines, and several studies discounting those links. And of course there’s the argument that the benefits to the majority of the population outweigh the potentially devastating consequences to a few. Not really much comfort for those few. I can’t go into it in detail, however the government has agreed that there could have been a link between vaccines and my niece’s condition.
My sister in-law recently sent me a link to a website with some startling information.
The growth in the number of vaccines given to our children in the last 20 years is rarely discussed in the media, despite a stunning chart like this one that shows a 260% increase in vaccines administered (were millions of children dying from deadly diseases 25 years ago? No, they weren’t.)
Take a look at that chart. Where did all those vaccines come from?
Parents should know that vaccines are never tested for their "combination risk", despite the fact that children may get as many as 6 vaccines in a single visit to the doctor. And, when it comes to vaccines, how can it be possible that one size fits all? What may present as no risks for one child may present enormous risks for another.
And that’s what’s scary to me. We know about drug interactions as an adult, and most adult drugs have been tested with many others. We also know that as we age drug management becomes increasingly difficult due to those potential interactions.
