These two paragraphs sum up one of the reasons why we personally chose not to vaccinate:
Furthermore, at least with regards to asthma, allergies and autism, it is reasonable to have a heightened and continuing sense of concern about vaccines, since they are direct attempts to alter the immune system. Lots of children with autism seem to have immunological problems, and asthma and allergies are both dysfunctions of the immune system. I’m not remotely suggesting there is evidence of anything causal because of this, but I do think it means it is well worth thinking about and looking at vaccines carefully, since we’re manipulating the immune system in ways that are not well understood, and we’ve got a lot of children appearing with immune problems.
Secondly, the increases in neurological problems, asthma/allergies, ADD and ADHD, bipolar disorder and autistic spectrum disorders in children ARE happening concomitantly with the increases in the number of vaccines that children get. This is obviously another concern NOT causative on its face, but why does that then make it somehow crazy to want to examine vaccines more closely, as well as their constituent parts?
