Hi, after about a month of being dairy-free, ds had a cup of milk on Saturday and ever since then he has had bad diarrhea; mostly watery, sometimes just very very loose. He also broke out in eczema on his face and went into autism "overdrive" (very aggressive, excessive stimming). Also (forgive me ) his poop smells sort of like moth balls. Does that sound like an intolerance or an actual allergy? Thank you!

It means that percentage develop an adequate level of antibodies.
My beef with the "free rider" argument is it almost exclusively referring to children, but not the significant percentage of adults who don't get boosters. Children only account for about 1/4 of the population, yet they are expected to take the risks for the sake of the adults?

Quote: there's a lot more money in alternative medicine than I ever thought LOL, no where near as much money as in the vaccine industry For me, the court procedings make me trust the vaccination progrm even less. Any system that allows the defendant to appoint their own judges is way too shady for me to hitch my wagon to.

Why do they run those ads about "parents, protect your infants by getting yourself vaccinated" ?? I am also mad, because now this means if I want to give protection to my baby, now I have to get him the shot ((HUGS)) Probably because its the only way to get adults...
Been there, done that, drank the Kool Aid. I've got one vaxed kid, one unvaxed kid... the differences speak for themselves.
