I also personally know a lot of people who did not at all or just briefly breastfed their babies. There are just so many factors that need to be considered and in our modern world anything could be possible or even just the adding up of everything. Who really knows.

Thanks so much for the article!

There are so many challenges (chemicals, pesticides, fungus) to our immune systems in the day to day environments that we are exposed to; it seems unreasonable to say that autoimmune disorders are causally linked to vaccines when there are so many things that could be the source of "celiac disease years later".  It may be another good reason to request vaccines free of (or low in) mercury or aluminum which many conscientious pediatricians are glad to get for you, especially since there are plenty of other sources of these metals that we will be exposed to.

I don"t think it is unreasonable to suggest that they may be a cause. Not enough research has been done and none likely ever will be done. Low mercury is still mercury...and it can still be enough to do damage.

The researchers did not inject mercury or aluminum into the mice, only antigens.

They cannot inject mercury and aluminum into mice at the same time b/c that will kill all their mice. Period.

I am aware of that, I just wanted to point out that there were no excipients or preservatives used in the injections on the mice.

Oh, I was just posting that fact for others who might not be aware of that yet. Thanks

I know that is true from what I've read and also from personal experience.

 

That is a very good reason to avoid easily avoidable traumas, including vaccination.
