Trinitty, it sounds like you have read some basics. So, what do you think about the SV40 virus and cancer then?

Can you remind me what that is?

I remember reading about that when this thread was first started, and I talked about it with the docs that I know.... and I can't remember where it went from there.

The SV40 virus is a simian virus that is known to cause cancer at a high rate and contaminated the polio vaccine from it's beginning up to the year 2000 and possibly still does.

A good place to start is the book The Virus and The Vaccine. There's more info in there than any links would have.

I don't think the concept of "herd immunity" is a wierd reason at all! My reason for not vaccinating is along the same lines - although I think there are risks to the vaccines, it's the changes in the epidemiology of diseases and the potential longrun impact on humanity that is my biggest reason to not vaccinate.

We eat a lot of organics (actually, we grow quite a bit of our food) and DD is fully vaxed, though we delayed some of them.

I don't know if anyone else has pointed this out, but fears about the safety of the food are not the only reason people eat organic. I am actually not that concerned about the health effects of pesticides in my food, though I AM concerned about the health effects for those who apply them and/or drink water contaminated by them. My desire to buy organic food is much more about supporting a certain style of agriculture and about protecting the environment than fear about my family's health. As organics become more and more mainstream, this is getting interesting...at times I choose to support small local growers who may or may not be organic rather than organics from huge distant corporate farms thousands of miles away.

grateful mother to DD, 1/04, and DS, 2/08
