I haven’t said anything about all studies. I never once asserted that — for the love of god! I’ve talked about ones that have issues with HUB, which is most of them, because as we’ve agreed, it’s not considered ethical to do actual double-blind studies. In response, you have gone and turned yourself inside out. You’ve jumped to conclusions and made a bunch of assumptions and put words in my mouth because I dared to question the perfect safety and efficacy of vaccines— because you are a zealot. You’ve decided what I really believe even though I’ve never said anything that indicates several of the things you’ve asserted.

Here’s what I did actually say: “Although vaccines are largely safe and beneficial for most people, every year people do die from vaccines, including children. Others suffer painful neurological conditions such as Guillain-Barré syndrome. The risk may be fairly low, but that’s a serious price to pay if you should happen to roll the dice and lose.”

I’m still chuckling about how direct quotes from sources that you respect count for nothing when they are a part of stories or websites you don’t like.
