As the debate about vaccine safety intensifies, new laws have been passed to protect the pharmaceutical companies from litigation. No new laws have been passed to protect the victims of vaccine injury. Against rising proof that vaccines are unsafe and linked to autism, ADHD, and other serious outcomes, the same mantra is repeated by government sources—that there is no proof of cause and effect between vaccinations and health concerns.
I grew up believing vaccinations were safe – well, almost safe. Once my neck and jaw swelled up and we were pretty sure I had the mumps, except for the weird sore on my mouth. Turns out, I had scratched my smallpox vaccination then re-inoculated myself by scratching my lip. This time the infection had entered my lymph glands rather than my bloodstream. I recovered within a few days.
