    READ ALL ABOUT IT—VACCINES ARE A GIANT SCAM!

    The vaccine industry couldn’t make it easier to be anti-vaccine. They actually print all the reasons right there in vaccine manufacturer’s own package inserts!

    I especially appreciate their honesty when vaccine manufacturers freely admit that they don’t study vaccines for carcinogenicity (cancer-causing) or mutagenicity (DNA mutation-causing). Who knew?!

    Or the part where they admit that the vaccinated child can still get the disease he or she was vaccinated against—including MEASLES, MUMPS, WHOOPING COUGH, FLU, ETC.—and shed it on to others. This is great stuff!

    It’s so easy to be anti-vaccine that I don’t understand how parents still choose to inject their children with this neurotoxic swill. The information’s right there.

    YOU CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS

    Either your children’s vaccines work—and you have nothing to worry about—or your children’s vaccines don’t work, and you’re right to be worried.

    You can’t have it both ways.

    You don’t see us worrying about our unvaccinated children when they’re around your vaccinated kids, do you? …Even when your kids are actually getting and spreading the diseases they were vaccinated for!

    That’s because the science proves our unvaccinated children’s unadulterated and properly nourished immune systems fight disease as they were designed to. So you see, there’s really no need for us to worry. Can you say the same?

    According to the vaccine manufacturer’s own vaccine package insert, “MEASLES” is the number one side effect of the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine!

    There’s also:
    • Pancreatitis
    • Diabetes Mellitus (Type II)
    • Anaphylaxis
    • Arthritis
    • Encephalitis
    • Aseptic Meningitis
    • Pneumonia
    • Deafness
    • Retinitis
    • Epididymitis
    and
    • DEATH!

    Clearly, vaccinating your child is playing Russian Roulette with your child’s life.

    Childhood diseases are treatable. Vaccine injuries? Not so much.

    Can you get a MMR vaccination as an adult? I work at a hospital and was told I needed this shot to be in compliance to work in the ER. Yet the only Drs that give them are pediatricians. What about adults? I’m also sort of confused as to how I missed this vaccination as a child if I have all the others. I’m wondering if maybe this wasn’t a requirement as a late 80s baby….
