peer studies? proof??
That's a fairly offensive thing to say. Perhaps some of "the public" have eyes wide open, but have decided that scientific methods and the peer review process is more credible than the alternative offerings.
It is unfortunate the the general population is being misled.
You can believe what you want too.
Here is Ben Goldacre's excellent TED talk on this subject of how science misleads, as he say's "We only hear about the fukes".
I don't mean to be offensive here. I was upfront from the beginning with my beliefs that are founded on accurate information. If you disagree, there was no need to get involved with it. Im not sure why you bothered to respond when you did not have anything to offer to what my question was. Regardless, I wish you well as I continue believe and know my child is healthier due to my steadfast research and decisions. Im moving on from this discussion. Best regards.
"The wonderful thing about science is its true whether you believe it or not".
Ben Goldacre's main point is that null results (ie. no significant reaction or health issue having been found) are often not published. Why don't you read some of his opinions about not vaccinating.
And to the OP - there's no need to get cross at people responding to your question. You asked for information to help sway someone from mainstream sources. We're all just pointing out there isn't any.
I'm glad your kids are healthy following your decision to not vaccinate. Given high levels of vaccination in the rest of the population they'll likely stay fine protected by everyone else from VPD.
Mine are also very healthy (and fully vaccinated).
Here's Ben Goldacre's blog with the tag "vaccines": http://www.badscience.net/category/vaccines/ just to help out with my suggestion.
The piece you linked to was really a criticism of the Daily Express' journalism. Maybe Ben Goldacre should look into the two HPV vaccines and the problems with them, there is plenty of information by independent researchers out there for there to be reason to be cautious about this vaccine especially as most of the research comes from the pharmaceutical companies that make them. Frankly, I get the impression that he hasn't had the bulls to get into the vaccine issue, residual programming maybe?
I'll make one last response to this and then I'm done....
There are studies. Several people have sent them to me via private message and I appreciate that. Apparently I posted in the wrong forum and I appreciate those of you that let me know that. I realize that you have a differnt opinion and that is your choice. I'm not cross....perhaps a little annoyed because I was simply looking for information with others that have my own point of view and seek and know of research from other sources not opinions of those that are of the opposite viewpoint. I have what I needed. Thanks to those that helped with my question. Best wishes to all.
