Vaccinations: Unsafe

You wouldn’t let your kids chew on metal. If a thermometer shattered in your house, you would probably evacuate. Well, this is what is being injected to millions of children in America through vaccines.
According to, ingredients such as thimerosal, formaldehyde and aluminum can be found in vaccines. They are in small enough doses so they will not do any harm.

According to, all 50 states have laws in place that require students to be vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis. Some states do allow religious exemptions.

The government should not impede on our freedom of choice. Vaccines contain chemicals and have side effects that can be detrimental to on’es health. A parent should be able to opt out of injecting their children with such harmful products.

Often I hear people blame those children who are not vaccinated for spreading the diseases and putting other kids at risk. How would an unvaccinated child infect a vaccinated child if the vaccination works?

A natural beauty business owner who wishes to remain anonymous due to stigma surrounding her decision to not vaccinate her children decided to stop vaccinating her child when he was two-years-old after he had severe diarrhea and a rash due to the vaccine. She has a biology degree from Cal State Fullerton and used to teach high school science.

“How are we spreading a disease that we do not have. I don’t understand that. How can you blame someone who doesn’t have the disease with passing it around, on top of the fact, if the vaccine worked, you shouldn’t be worried,” she said.

She also said that there is no amount of aluminum that is safe enough to inject into a child.

Again, if you wouldn’t alow your child to eat metal, why would one choose to directly inject it into a child’s body.

In the article on they reference Paul Offit who is a pediatrician specializing in infectious diseases.

“Children are exposed to more bacteria, viruses, toxins, and other harmful substances in one day of normal activity than are in vaccines,” Offit said.

Though this may be true you cannot avoid child play and that exposure to the myriad of germs out in the world. But, you can avoid taking your chances in knowingly injecting your child with harmful substances.

Dr. Joeseph Mercola, a licensed Osteopathic Physician, says on his website,, that aluminum is a brain toxin that can cause brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and ALS.

It is scary that the government has infringed on our right to choose and has made this a law.

“I’m more afraid of vaccines than I am of the disease itself,” said the anonymous source.

Vaccines impede on the body’s ability to naturally build immunity and fight infectious diseases.

According to the book, “Natural Choices for Women’s Health: How the Secrets of Natural and Chinese Medicine Can Create a Lifetime of Wellness” by Laurie Steelsmith, the body has the ability to build natural immunity. Once the body is attacked by a disease, it is able to fight it off and build natural immunity forever.

Your body has the ability to work in magnificent ways and can heal and fight off diseases itself if one would be patient, fuel it properly and take proper care of it. People just want a quick solution that takes no effort, no matter what the side effects are.

According to that high dosages of vitamin C can aid the body in fighting off infectious diseases. One can find high dosages of vitamin C in elderberries. You can make a syrup of elderberries, ginger, cinnamon and honey every day to help build vitamin C in your body. Raw honey, especially Manuka Honey, is also very good. Eat a healthy diet, drink lots of clean water and sanitize your hands.

Do your research and find out exactly what you are injecting into your child’s body before doing so. For more information on what is in vaccines and what the side effects are visit
