No one does. It doesn't get studied. There is too much money at stake.

sbmg Wrote:But children don't die from allergies and asthma.

Yes they do.

sbmg Wrote:And usually they outgrow the asthma.

Not always.

sbmg Wrote:They can, however, die from measles, diphtheria, rubella, et al.

Actually, in populations where the incidence of the diseases had been common, most kids recovered quite well. Those who received treatment were the ones who died most often. Part of the reason is because re-exposure keeps the immune system prepared for a specific virus. One of the (ignored by the CDC and FDA) predicted side effects of the chicken pox vaccine is shingles in adults. Recurrent exposure to the virus keeps it in check.

I think that is a very irresponsible and cavalier attitude and I cannot understand how people in the field of medicine can be so insensitive to the segment of the population who will die due to vaccination. In fact, vaccination is itself a vector for disease. Jenner and Salk caused much more destruction than they stopped. What really improved public health was civil engineering.

It appears your mind is already made up, so I'll leave you to your belief, though I wonder why you bothered to start the thread if you're unwilling to look more deeply into the issue. I realize that you have to memorize what you are told to get licensed, but please, for the sake of the people you intend to treat someday, do not check your brain at the door. In the area of health science, dogma is a very dangerous thing.
