  • Yes, anything unnatural being injected into the body can be dangerous to human health. HOWEVER, this does not mean that we should not vaccinate, as in many cases the alternative is even more dangerous.

  • People can get very sick from vaccines

  • Not enough research has been done to ensure that the preservatives used in vaccines are not harmful to the body. Since the 90's thimersol was removed from all children's vaccines with the exception of the Hep B shot as well as the flu shot. Thimersol contains 50 ethyl-mercury. Many people state that this ingredient poses no danger to human health, yet it was removed from children's vaccines as a safe guard. If vaccines pose no danger to human health than I also question why vaccine injury compensation organisations exist in the first place. This is a highly controversial topic but children with autism are often found to have high levels of metal within their bodies. Often being mercury or aluminium or even both. The symptoms of mercury poisoning are as follows: tremors, emotional changes, insomnia, weakness, muscle atrophy, twitching, headaches, disturbances in sensations, changes in nerve responses, and performance deficits on tests of cognitive function. (Taken from These symptoms are often displayed in autistic children, so how can you not question the link between metal buildup in the body and the immunizations you are supposed to get which contain these metals. I am not some conspiracy theory nut, I am truly concerned that the ingredients in vaccinations have the ability to harm people and that not enough studies have been conducted to prove other wise. If you follow the CDC's guide by the time your child is 6 they would have received 49 doses of 14 vaccinations.

  • I think vaccines are, for the most part, safe for humans unless you are allergic or have an intolerance to the vaccines for some reason . . . However, I am not automatically dismissing claims that the CHEMICALS in vaccines can cause certain illnesses, although I'll have to do some more research before coming to a conclusion. So far, I've found a few good resources from both sides: (Pro) (Con)

  • I believe that they are safe, whether or not they are effective is a different story. Being exposed to the real virus is a much more effective option in the long run. Chemicals in the vaccines can lead to adverse reactions, however, so make sure you are not allergic to any of those.

  • With the exception of allergic reactions or minor side effects (I had a shot yesterday and it hurts like Heck!) vaccines are safe for humans. There is no evidence saying they cause Autism

  • NO! I believe not vaccinating is a health hazard to our young children.

  • The notion for example vaccines have a link to autism, is part of a massive misinformation campaign. A lot of people don't understand the horrors of the epidemics, like Influenza outbreak. The success of vaccination is why people are so skeptical of it, they are born into a world without plagues, thanks to medical science. Plus of the bias humans have, parents would feel worse if something happens to their kid by their consent, rather than if they just did not act to be "safe". There have been also very rare cases that the vaccination actually infects the person, depending on pre existing conditions and immunology. It's understandable to be skeptical to test safety, but don't inhibit the research. Now a bet the opposition would agree if I said "red meat is carcinogenic, so it is best to not eat it!" (Even though the benefits of being a vegan is clear)

  • Unless you're specifically told by doctor's that it's not safe for you, it almost certainly is. There's one or two exceptions, but vaccines have done only good in 99.9% of cases.

It depends on the vaccine
David_Debates says2016-06-03T04:37:53.2445135Z
How so?
David_Debates says2016-06-03T05:10:43.1723960Z
In other words, why does it matter what vaccine it is? Which vaccines are worse than others?
Gareth_BM says2016-06-03T17:28:42.6987425Z
Some vaccines contain traces of martial the viruses were fed with which is made with eggs. Others contain trace amounts of various metals. People can have allergic reactions to these. Unless your are severally allergic to one of these things it is definitely still worth the risk.

What I mean to say is: 1) What vaccines are worse than others? 2) Why are they worse? Are they only worse for some? 3) If the answer to (2) is "it is only worse for some," then can you really say that vaccines are dangerous? In order for something to be considered dangerous by the US Federal Gov't (or any municipal agency, for that matter), it should be dangerous to everyone, not just .00001% of the population.

By the same logic, peanuts should be considered dangerous to human health because you might be allergic to them.

David_Debates In some cases peanuts are dangerous to human health, like vaccines.
David_Debates says2016-10-10T15:29:57.6326960Z
Peanuts can be dangerous to human health, I don't contest that. What I do contest is stating that something ought to be considered dangerous to human health if only .000001% of the population is allergic to it. Do you think the US Government ought to consider peanuts to be dangerous to human health simply because some people might be allergic to it?
