Wage the side effects of the vaccine and its potential risk against the threat of the measles. I'd rather not put those chemicals in my body.
The older you get the harder your body takes Measles. THe vaccine is nothing more than a dead form of the live bug. Measles can cause hydrocephalus and brain damage.The MMR is one of the older vaccines on the market. Very few side effects- low grade fever and swelling at the injection sight. Really no biggy.
Read for yourself:
I can do a search on how bad chewing gum is for children. There will be a study for children and the effects of chewing gum. See for yourself.
It is not that simple. Medical research has become very stringent and it is not as easy as it use to be to get something on the market. Partially because of drugs like Phen-Fen and others. But you know what we have the right to choose and that is what is important so long as we are making informed choices. If you choose to read literature that is for or against a drug etc, look at who is sponsoring the study and who did it. There are alot more factors than this that go into. I encourage every patient to research and be an advocate for themselves. Just filter the information with care.
