    Dive into sources and further reading here:

    Vaccines and their side effects are a hard topic to cover - we know we keep saying this, but this case especially, there were a lot of things to consider. You can’t blame people for being worried, so we wanted to take their concerns seriously.

    Because it is impossible to cover everything there is to know about vaccines in a ten minute video our sources are extra extensive and explain a lot of aspects in more detail, with an extra focus on further reading.

    So if you want to dive in deeper or have more arguments at hand for your next heated discussion, here you go.

      vaccines are not subject to the safety rigors undergone by other pharmaceuticals in the FDA approval process. There are no large scale, double-blind, placebo controlled studies. And, in the one 1930 human study of thimerosal that predated its use in vaccines, all the subjects injected with thimerosal died. In 2004, an FDA official acknowledged in testimony before a Congressional committee, that no government or privately funded study has ever demonstrated thimerosal’s safety. On the other hand, there is plenty of science suggesting that thimerosal is NOT safe. Several hundred studies available on PubMed link thimerosal exposure to the neurodevelopmental and immune system diseases that are now epidemic in the generation of American children born after the CDC dramatically increased childhood thimerosal exposure starting in 1988. My book, Thimerosal- Let the Science Speak, summarizes these studies. The scientific literature inculpates increased thimerosal exposure as a culprit in the explosion of ADD, ADHD, speech delay, narcolepsy, SIDS, ASD, seizure disorder, tics and anaphylaxis, including asthma and food allergies. According to the CDC, one in six American children-the so called “thimerosal generation”-now suffers from a developmental disability. We have published a compendium of 80 published, peer-reviewed studies that strongly suggest a link between thimerosal exposure and autism.

      I'm sorry, but we are the sickest species ON THE PLANET. Just think about that for ONE minute.
      Our gut microbiome is being sterilized by pesticides like round up, and we are told they are safe(yes, they kill the bacteria in your gut - shocker), but DON'T WORRY, they have something you can buy for that.
      We are developing autoimmune diseases left and right. A study was just released that shows how millennials health plummets at around age 27, and no one is concerned that it's something to do with out healthcare? "healthcare" - that's a misnomer at this point.
      The SAME people that push round-up as being safe(now proven to cause cancer in a court of law), "provide" us with cancer treatments and vaccines.
      The same people who sell us vaccines, treat our children of these chronic illnesses. NO ONE is brave enough(or intelligent enough) to raise an eyebrow to that?
      Oh, wait, they are, but then they are told they are just crazy conspiracy theorists who are probably literally hitler and voted for trump. And people fall for it because it makes them FEEL safe. Meanwhile over FIFTY PERCENT of our youth(YOUTH!) have chronic illnesses that the AMA says they will NEVER recover from. And it's not enough for these mega corps to make millions or billions, now they are pushing for trillions.
      That's not fishy to you guys?
      I swear, people have thrown common sense directly out of the nearest window for, "double blind published data" We will NEVER get it. There are too many variables involved and you know this, that's why you keep asking.
      Honestly it makes me sick and people who are working for them should be ashamed of themselves. They aren't, because they have money in the bank, but one day, people are going to have had enough and they will be found and prosecuted.
      How many more of our loved ones have to suffer and die before it gets to that point?

    • Richard Gregory
      Richard Gregory 9 hours ago

      If by that you mean if you get infected and recover, you are then immune to getting that infection again...well, mostly, yes. Once your immune system has encountered something liek the measles virus, it builds a specific defence against it. This defense is far more effective than the generalised defence mechanisms the immune system uses against something it has never met before. Measles for example: when you first encounter the virus (by being infecte dor having the vaccine) you have no specific defence against it. Your body deploys it's generalised defence; this is effective against all type of invader - and it is often sufficient on it;s own. In the case of measles (and many other diseases) this is not the case. Then the general troops fight an holding action, this gives the body time to create a specialised defence tailored specifically for that invader: and no other. Your body retains a memory of that invader, so if it meets it again, the specialised defence is available immediately, and it is so deadly that you are what we call "immune". The inader is destroyed before it can cause trouble. For most diseases this immunity is life long. For some it is not. Moreover, some diseases like influenza there are many different variants: if you catch influenza type A you are immune to it, but you can still catch influenza type B. These viruses mutate rapidly to evade the immune system. Tha is also why you catch the common cold repeatedly throughout your life.

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla 19 hours ago

      As Willy Wonka would say: _"strike that - reverse it."_ Actually unvaccinated people are what promote new strains of pathogens. Vaccines prevent an active infection occurring. An active infection = means the pathogen in you is replicating beyond your immune system's capacity to destroy it. So no active infection = no replication.
      Meanwhile when unvaccinated get sick they are allowing the pathogen in their body to replicate = which can give rise to new mutations occurring. So anti-vaxxers are the one actually promoting the rise of new and potentially worse infectious diseases - not the vaccinated.
      I'll give you an example. The MMR has been around since the early 1970's. All MMR vaccines employ the Type A genotype of the MeV virus which causes measles. All current genotypes found around the planet today causing measles outbreaks = non-Type A strains. So Type A MeV was eradicated from human populations via decades of vaccine employment. Meanwhile we see other strains exist solely as a result of endemic measles infections around the planet as a result of unvaccinated people = infections which the MMR could eradicate if people would only use the vaccine.
      So 40+ years of MMR use has not given rise to a more virulent strain of the virus. What is actually sad is that the MeV virus - like the Variola virus which caused smallpox = only exists in humans. Accordingly we could eradicate measles within a generation if people would simply get their MMR shots as they are supposed to. Have a nice day.

    When that Babysitter comes home, takes care of his kids, then tomorrow, they all will probaly be infected with fucking measles.
    They also have a chance of dying.

    Strange, but i am unvaccinated, i have a very weak immune system but i was vaccinated only when i was borned. I never was infected with Flu or any other serious disease except chikenpocks. I do not use vaccines because virus is often mutating, and there is chance to get complications, so if i have a vaccine from flu stamm in 2018, i won't be protected from 2019 stamm, but newborned have to be vaccinated because their immune system is to weak to protect themselves.

    So. First off. I'm NOT a anti-vaxxer, I am pro-vaccine. That said though, I'm told that vaccines used to contain things like mercury and some still do have harmful chemicals. Is there any merit to this, and are there some vaccines that have a higher side-effect level than the one described in this video?

    • Vojta Vojta
      Vojta Vojta 19 hours ago

      @DRGW Mapping They took it out completely. It was not an elemental mercury, rather thimerosal, which was used for multi-dose vials as a conservant. Today you can find it only in multi-dose flu vaccines and you can still get a flu shot without it. Nevertheless, it was proven to be harmless.

      Actually, @carleo 777, they only lowed it. However, it was still at a safe amount before it was lowed. The only reason they lowed it was because parents were like "wait, there's MERCURY in it?!"

    • momomo CRONx
      momomo CRONx Day ago

      they don't put mercury, aborted baby fetus or other things in. what they put in is some animal uterus (because the uterus is SUPER PROTECTIVE against viruses) and some aluminum (just a little, to strengthen the vaccine. We eat tons of aluminum anyway) and yes, there are some with other worse side effects. but don't be afraid.

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla 3 days ago

      Diphtheria = bad.
      Pertussis = worse.
      Chickenpox = bad.
      Smallpox = worse.
      Moral of the story: not all infectious pathogens are the same. Some impact the body more severely than others = resulting in harsher effects. So understanding this fact = understand that vaccines likewise are not all the same based upon the pathogens they are protecting you from. Since you most often develop side effects from vaccination - not from the ingredients per se - but rather from the actual pathogen employed in the vaccine = that is why we see as you say the side effects vary depending on the vaccine.
      So if both the vaccine and the disease it prevents can cause similar effects in people because those effects are being driven by the pathogen = whichever one offers the least number of adverse reactions is the better option as you are at risk regardless. Thus history demonstrates conclusively that people react badly to vaccination at a level far less than we used to see them react to the disease the vaccine prevents in the time before we had a vaccine. Have a nice day.

    • Richard Gregory
      Richard Gregory 4 days ago

      "harmful chemicals" is misleading. It all depends on the dose. Salt will kill you if you have too much, do you hesitate to have some on your fries? Mercury (actually, ethyl mercury, which has totally different properties to mercury metal) has mostly been removed. Stuff like preservatives etc would be large amounts. The amounts in vaccines is absolutely tiny. Crackpot anti-vaxxers produce long list of "toxic chemicals" but the point s they aren't toxic in the amount sin a vaccination. You get like a hundred times the aluminium from eating food every week than you do from a lifetime of vaccines. Anything can be the right amounts. Every medication is toxic...if you take too much. alcohol is a deadly poison.

    Ummmmmm, just a quick question.... If your kid is vaccinated, isn't that supposed to protect them from the virus? So why would it matter if someone else's child isn't vaccinated? Your kid got the vaccination so they're safe right? My opinion if someone decides not to vaccinate their child, isn't that their choice? I bet these people on here insulting the parents that don't choose to get their children the shots would change their mind if their child got these shots and ended up a special needs child afterwards, or with ADHD! It happens all the time! It happened to my daughter! Think about it.....

      You dont get special needs from vaccines. The only paper claiming this was debunked dozens of times and most of the authors have retracted their statements

    what about mercury and aluminium? What about long term results of the intoxication from metals. Today a child get around 25 shots of vaccine until the age of 2. Did anyone count how much toxic metals did his body gets?

    • momomo CRONx
      momomo CRONx Day ago

      firstly, there are no amounts of mercury in vaccines. secondly, the amount of aluminum is so small that you EAT more aluminum in your normal day. please, do more research to expand your 2 brain cells.

      There are no "toxic metals" in vaccines.........duh! The aluminum *SALT* in a vaccine *IS NOT* the same as the aluminum is your toaster or car. The same for Thimerosal which is rarely used today anyways. It is a mercury analog of organic methylmercury such as is obtained from mining and which sometimes contaminates seafood. For those who slept through chemistry class = a "salt" or analog of something is chemically different from it's base element and thus *DOES NOT* metabolize the same in the body.
      So we have 100 years of evidence of the safety and efficacy of vaccination science as they have been around for a long time now. Meanwhile literally billions of people have been vaccinated over the years = billions. Accordingly we indeed know "the long term results" of vaccine usage.
      As noted by others you ingest - and absorb - vastly more aluminum via your normal dietary intake than you are exposed to in a lifetime of vaccination as aluminum is ubiquitous in nature = and thus in the human food supply. Plants absorb aluminum when they take in nutrients = and animals eat the plants while humans eat both. Have a nice day.

      Let's just think like this: the history of vaccination is long, and there have been no case of metal toxicating occured directly by vaccinating.

    The video doesn’t address toxic preservatives contained in some vaccines. All of the side effects discussed are the acute side effects and not the effects of a child’s not fully developed liver to filter out these toxins.
    In addition it video failed to point out that many of the cases of measles now occurring are in individuals who previously received the vaccination. Thus effectivity of the vaccines is questionable and is not addressed.
    Bottom line, Parental Right to choose should be allowed in all cases of medical procedures regarding their children. Parents have the right to decide and accept whatever risks apply to their family. No one needs a Nanny State telling them that we have to do anything.

    • payton jarden

      It's not "paternal right" because you not vaccinating your children endangers dozens of people who can't vaccinate. Chemotherapy patients,children with severe allergies, the elderly, these are people who could catch life threatening diseases from non vaxxed people. Vaccines aren't about just your children but EVERYONE.

      My wife is a physician and reads the journal articles on the debate. There is enough supporting evidence against vaccines to warrant concern and certainly enough to warrant a parent’s right to choose. Most information found on the web is from the drug companies which are heavily invested in ensuring their revenue streams stay intact.

    • momomo CRONx

      There is a small amount of aluminum in vaccines, but you eat more in a day than the amount in vaccines.

    • A Random Person

      Listen, preservatives, no matter how bad they are, are infinitely better than contracting a fatal disease. Also, as for measles affecting vaccinated people, that is largely due to people like you. When a disease enters an unvaccinated person, it could potentially mutate. If it does, vaccinated people are put at risk due to *your* own stupidity. Don’t think because you researched biased articles for 30 minutes that you know anything in the subject. Vaccines are absolutely necessary, and not having them is harmful to not only your children, but others as well, for reasons I stated. In conclusion, ur dumb

    Antivaxxers, you are in as much of a position to judge the feasibility of the components of a vaccine as anyone who's not an engineer is when it comes to judging the safety of a passenger plane by glancing at a cross-section diagram.

      Because (a) it takes time from the shot to build full immunity, (b) the immunity is not 100% perfect, it just reduces your chanc eof getting flu - a LOT - and reduces the severity of the flu if you get it and (c) every year they have to make a "best guess" on which strains of flu are likely to be prevalent in that year; different strains dominate in different years and the virus mutates a lot as well. That's why you have to have a flue shot every year, to keep you up to date. Sometimes this "best guess" is wrong. It is also perfectly possible that your brothers just got unlucky and et a flu virus that wasn;t included in the shot. It;s not possible to produce a vaccine to cover every strain there is.
      Lastly, lots of people think they had flu when they had a bad cold. Flu will make you so sick you can;t get out of bed for a week.
