I came across this blog and a series of posts they had done on immunity and vaccination recently. I thought it was interesting. It answers some questions I hadn't seen answered before and is presented in a very user friendly way.

Thanks for sharing. I just read the first link. Good to get a review of high school biology. :)

 

I liked this bit the best - great ending:

Vaccination is merely a trick, to trick our bodies into thinking that it has fought of a disease when it has not. At worst you save time and money that would have been wasted in treating the sick and at best you save lives out of it.

Just read the other three (child free morning here on a work trip!).

 

I particularly like the last one with the list of answers to common questions.

 

This especially is something I hadn't thought about before, but makes a lot of sense: 

 

 

 

Quote:
There is one way that vaccines do contribute to diseases like hypertension, diabetes and cardio-vascular disorders. They increase lifespan significantly and make childhood disorders a non-entity. With more people surviving and living longer diseases of age become more prevalent because you live longer. The life expectancy in Nigeria is 45 years. Diabetes and CHD are less of an issue than say in the UK where our life expectancy is 78. A lot of anti-vax sites show this between different countries without pointing out the reason has more to do with people living a long rather than being more prone to these.

 

Anyway thanks again for pointing these out.
