This report is written by a parent for other parents. I spent months researching both the proand anti stances of vaccination. My goal was to determine whether the risk of disease wasgreater than the risk from vaccination, living in a first world country, today. Simply put, whichis riskier
the disease or the vaccine. You would think the answer is pretty straight forward,but you would be surprised.The benefit risk ratio is an important decision in anyone deciding whether to vaccinate or not.Contrary to popular belief and marketing, childhood diseases in a developed country are notas dangerous as we are led to believe. Catching a particular disease does not mean you willdie from it. I will show how vaccines were actually introduced at a time when diseases hadalready declined to a low risk level. This fact is proven, scientifically.Plus, vaccines are known to have side effects, some of them minor but some major andeven fatal. There comes a time when the risk of taking the vaccine is greater than the riskfrom the disease itself. This probably sounds strange to you and something most peoplenever consider because we are told differently, but that scenario is now playing itself out inour society.Recent findings and court cases are showing that the adverse effects of vaccines are real.Many have been kept under cover over the years but some high profile cases are nowbringing them to light. More and more physicians are questioning the issues aroundvaccines.The power of the pharmaceutical companies is immense and their influence extends to allwalks of life including doctors, governments and media. The Pharmaceutical Business is themost profitable US industry. Unfortunately in the world we live in, with money comes powerand inevitably corruption.
In the USA the Vaccine Injury Compensation System, setup in 1988 has paid out $1.8 billionso far to settle claims of vaccine induced damage or death (

).Injury or death due to the DTP & MMR vaccines were top of the list for the number

).There are still thousands of claims outstanding and these figures do not include any claimsfor Autism, as the link between Autism and vaccines has supposedly not been proven. I willshow you reports that will convince any normal person that the link is quite obvious.However, because vaccine manufacturers and the federal government are not required toadmit responsibility, even when a claim is paid, they are able to assert that "the settlement ofa claim does not necessarily establish liability."
