Vaccines can be harmful

I am a stay-at-home mom who has two children with autism spectrum disorders, the older was diagnosed with Pervasive Development Disorder and the younger with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I believe they were both harmed by vaccines.

Why? I did my research. I am a senior and in college and have access to an online college library database. I’ve read tons of peer-reviewed journal articles and medical study conclusions. I have read several books on autism treatments, and through diet, chelation and supplements, my children are recovering.

My question to you is why must there be “aggressive telemarketers, blanketing children’s parents with e-mails, phone calls, newsletters and even newspaper notices” to get parents to vaccinate their children?

Do you realize that there is proof of susceptibility groups and nothing is being done to identify them before vaccination? Hannah Poling’s case proved that some children can develop autism after vaccines because of their biological condition.

Don’t you think parents are worried about this?

In doing research on my own, I have found that children with these characteristics are more susceptible to being harmed by vaccines: blood type A; history of thyroid problems in the family; history of allergies; known or unknown autoimmune disorder; mitochondrial disease/disorder; have low glutathione levels/mineral deficiencies. Some kids just cannot eliminate the toxins in the vaccines.

Another question: With our children already damaged, why would parents of children with autism be uniting to demand safer vaccines? Obviously our kids aren’t getting any more.

We are doing it because we truly believe that, unless something is done to test for susceptible children, revise vaccine schedule and take out harmful ingredients, children will continue to be injured by them. So I say back to you, “It’s a matter of public safety.”
