Why are some parents more afraid of vaccines mentally disabling their kids than of diseases killing their kids? Not that I believe that vaccines do that at all.

When my daughter was 16 she had 3 vaccinations at the same time. Within hours she had a complete psychotic break, that she still is not quite healed from. It took her a year to come back to us, and she still has physical disabilities.

Even with that, I still believe in vaccinations for all.

We had a choice. We were going on vacation for a month and she decided to get all three instead of coming back after vacation.
She received vaccinations on a Friday and was coming in and out of reality within hours. It was shocking to see. Within a day she was not lucid at all. She would have been hospitalized but they could not find a juvenile bed in a psychiatric facility. We waited for hours and hours for a bed. Nothing. We finally brought her home and I took care of her 24/7 for a year. Her Doctor had me call a number to report the adverse reaction. None of her doctors know exactly why it happened. After researching it I came away with more questions. In the end though it didn't matter as to the "why" I've been too busy trying to get my daughter back.

Thank you, Didge. It's been slow going but it gets better all the time.

Some doctor wrote about a study he did back in the 80's with very few patients that said vaccines were bad. The study has been retested several times, never with the same results. The original doctor has even admitted that the study was flawed. Yet the conspiracy theorists keep bringing it up. They say it is the mercury in it that is causng the problem. The mercury is part of a compound. To blame it is like saying table salt will kill you because it contains chloride.

Actually, I didn't ask why some parents believe vaccines cause autism, I asked why some parents are more afraid of vaccines mentally disabling their kids than of diseases killing their kids.

Statistically speaking a child is more likely to have autism than any of those major diseases. Of course that will only remain true as long as people vaccinate.

They were lied to.

I am reading the biography of Mark Twain. In 1845 he writes of a measles epidemic that was decimating the children of his town. He said that for awhile there was a funeral everyday.

We tamed measles with vaccines but if herd immunity is not maintained the virus could become as virulent as it was in Mark Twain's day. 

Some very few should not be vaccinated, but the cost to the few is far, far outweighed by the benefit to the many.

In other words, today, people don't believe that measles can be deadly.

They generally aren't deadly today, but viruses mutate rapidly and that kind of virulence in the measles virus could return if given the chance. The chance of under or no vaccination.

There are occasional (allergic?) reactions to vaccines that do indeed cause grave problems. Even so, the likelihood of reacting to the vaccine is far less than the chance of contracting the disease if the vaccination is refused -- as you implied in your question.

Goodness, you're an argumentative fellow. Did I mention autism? Are you quite unable to relate the answer I did give to your question?

Ah, I see. You've given the same comment to everybody. Not very appropriate, N.Harmonik. Lazy mind, methinks.

Because they're idiots! Autism is a genetic disorder it doesn't come from anywhere else but in the brain. These people don't seem to realize that if you don't vaccinate themselves they will catch a disease and possibly die. Germs don't disappear into thin air they are still everywhere floating around if we didn't have vaccines none of us would be on here typing we'd all be dead or a vegetable from some illness such as polio and we wouldn't be able to live past 50 or die even earlier. Vaccines are there for a reason and if you choose not to vaccinate these idiots will die off and the people who are vaccinated will live. You better praise Charles Darwin because that's survival of the fittest for you.
