Vaccine Safety Challenged, Part 1
February 9, 2017
Dr. Lawrence Palevsky, integrative pediatrician, pushes back on the assertion that vaccines are free of harmful effects. They contain harmful substances like mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde, and polysorbate 80 that have never undergone adequate safety studies when injected; they may challenge the immune system to go into “overdrive” promoting autoimmunity and neurological consequences; and the vaccines themselves may offer imperfect protection which could actually make viruses and bacteria more dangerous. Dr. Palevsky believes that in our rush to conquer infectious diseases, we have ignored the potential harms of immunization. He points to the unprecedented pervasiveness of neurodevelopmental disorders in children, which now affect 1 in 6. “There’s no such thing as a ‘safe’ vaccine," he concludes. What options exist for concerned parents? Are vaccine “refuseniks” contributing to the re-emergence of mumps, measles, and whooping cough? Why are scientists and medical professionals who question immunization treated like dangerous heretics? What can be expected from the appointment by President Trump of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to head up a vaccine advisory council? Click HERE for part 2.
