I just got done reading Vaccines are they Really Safe and Effective? by Neil Z ****** and I highly recommend it. Personally, you couldnt pay me 1 million bucks to inject any of the vaccines into my child. I am totally disgusted by vaccines and the vaccine schedule and each time I read a new study I am so angry at pharmaceutical companies, drs who go along with it, and the government for covering up some things......anyways......back to the topic (sorry I go off on tangents easily!)
Measles is contagious, symptoms include high fever, cough, runny nose, sore sensitive eyes, itchy rash, spots in mouth. Symptoms usually disappear within 1-2 weeks. Treatment consists of allowing the disease to run its course. Prior to the 60's most kids caught measles and complications were unlikely. It is more dangerous in malnourished children living in underdeveloped countries with poor nutrition, sanitation, and inadequate health care. The incidence to get encephalitis from measles now is 1/1000 measles cases in malnourished countries......in the US its more like 1/10,000 measles cases. Natural immunity is better than any vaccine. In 1989, 89% of the people who caught measles, were vaccinated anyways.
Rubella is dangerous for pregnant women (because it can cause birth defects) but when caught by children is a pretty tame disease. It usually escapes detection and sometimes passes for a cold. Treatment consists of allowing the disease to run its course. Again, natural immunity works the best. 55% of vaccinated women developed arthritis within 4 weeks of the vaccine. Cases of Rubella INCREASED after the vaccine was introduced.
Mumps symptoms include fever, headache, muscle ache, fatigue, swollen jawline and occasional swollen testicles and breasts. Treatment consists of allowing it to run its course. Takes about a week. If you catch mumps you have permanent natural immunity and will not contract it again. The mumps vaccine has been associated with diabetes within 2-4 weeks of the vaccine. The vaccine is also associated with aseptic meningitis, usually occuring within 15-35 days after receiving the vaccine.
There are many other complications associated with these vaccines. In personal experience, I received my last vaccination when I was 12. Supposedly it was "required" to enter into 6th grade (my mom didnt know any better)....anyways.....I missed 29 days of school that year to sickness. Coincedence? I think not. My non vaxed friend (whose parents are hippies and I thought they were quacks at the time, they did a waiver) got a perfect attendance award.
