General Information



Vaccines may cause autism and other neurological disorders.  Many parents believe their child's autism began with a vaccination.  There are a couple of reasons for pointing at vaccinations.  There is the use of multiple vaccines at one time, the side-effects of the different vaccines that the government admits to and the use of mercury in vaccines.  The pharmaceutical companies have been using mercury as a preservative.  Mercury is also sold under the brand name Thimerosal produced by Eli Lilly, a pharmaceutical company, and was used because it is a relatively cheap preservative.  

Unfortunately, the drug companies have lobbied our politicians quite aggressively.  The government continues to support an aggressive immunization schedule that requires young children to receive numerous vaccinations by the time they are 18 to 24 months of age for diseases that are almost eradicated from the United States.  As a parent, I have done a fair amount of research and I believe immunizations do not need to be done in such a short period of time and while a baby's immune system is still developing.  Please, do your research and decide what is best for you and your child!  You might rethink your decision to immunize your child or get a flu shot after you do your research.  Remember to look at who is funding any studies or reports you read.  I know that I thought that I was being a good parent by getting my son immunized according to the recommended schedule.  I wish I knew then what I know now.

Most drug companies will readily admit that it is not cost effective to make medications and vaccines that the targeted population will not take for a life-time.  They keep adding more and more vaccines that are required by the government for each child in the United States.  That means a lot of money for the pharmaceutical companies.  The top drug companies in the US spent more money paying out dividends to stock holders and buying back stock then they paid for research last year.  They are definitely making money.
