pMy yr. old pa son has had all the vaccines he needs except for chicken pox, which I dont think was available then. He had athsma at 1 yr. old severe eczema on just his face, till he was 2, he got chicken pox at age 6 but didnt have any cpmplications. MY daughter got them at 3 years old, she had the vaccine but only got 3 poxes, she is allergy free, except for a little hayfever. my other son got pox at 7 weeks old, real bad, no vaccine, dont know if hes pa yet. but he has had all his vaccines up to date, he has no other allergies but had RSV at 10 weeks old, but so did my other 2 kids when they were about the same age. They thought he might have had whhooping cough, Im not sure if he had that vaccine by then or not, Id have to check his chart. MY 4 year old daughter gets mild athsma once in a while, which we just use the nebulizer, and we have used it on my 1 year old at times for mild allergies,when he wheezes.MY 7 year old also gets lots of sinus infections, about 2 a year but they make him real sick (103* temp.)br /
He just got his MMR with no side effects [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]/p

pMy DS 18 months has anaphylactic allergies to: dairy, eggs, wheat, peanuts as well as allergies to about 25 other items. His IGE level is 1653. /p
pHe got his DTaP shots at 2, 4 and 6 months. I was terrified. He had eczema since birth so I know that his allergic condition was not caused by these vaccines. HOWEVER, I do think that the vaccines in and of themselves can be extremely harmful. They are full of so much crap and we are injecting it into very small children./p
pBefore vaccines, these diseases were actually diminishing in strength and virulence becase the human race was developing an ability to fight them off. Vaccines have take that away and now these diseases are more deadly than they have ever been./p
pThat said, I do believe that the benefits outweigh the risks for some vaccines. My DS also has asthma and the reason why chicken pox (as well as any other herpes disease) is so dangerous is that steroids make herpes viruses spread like WILDFIRE. My DS also has eczema and if he were exposed to herpes or chicken pox, the virus could cover his entire body, invade his organs, including his eyes and kill him. Unfortunately, I live in Ireland and the chicken pox vaccine is not available here. More than likely if my son contracts chicken pox he will have to be hospitalized./p
pThere was a program on TV here a week or so ago called, "Eat Dirt", basically what they were saying is that you see no asthma or allergies in third world countries because the kids are exposed to so much bacteria, viruses, etc. The allergic condition has developed so significantly in the first world due to overexcessive hygiene, antibiotic use, etc. It was a very interesting program./p
pMy son will never have the MMR because he has an anaphylactic allergy to eggs. PLUS, I buy into the link between the MMR and autism. PLUS, I recently read that kids diagnosed with autism go on to be diagnosed with multiple and sometimes severe food allergies. All too scary for me. I have also read that kids with eczema actually do rather well with measles. So, since my son's immune system is so over-active I'll trust it to fight off any diseases. /p

pThe topic tonight on 60 minutes is about if the MMR is safe and the link between MMR and autism. Thought some people may be interested./p

pMost babies are now routinely given the vitamin K shot. Do you really know what is in it? I don't. Your pharmacist doesn't. Neither does your doctor or hospital./p
pThe FDA gave pharmaceutical companies the right to "self-affirm" generally recognized as safe ingredients. What this means is the company has a highly refined food oils tested by skin prick tests to see if people get an allergic reaction. They don't. So now the oils are GRAS. Nothing gets submitted to the FDA. There is no "list" of self-affirmed GRAS ingredients. Nothing appears on the package insert. And it is a trade secret protected by international law. /p
pSo your baby gets a shot at birth. And unless you give the baby a formula that contains peanut oil, you have no idea that your child has an allergy until you feed him peanuts at age 2. /p
pDr. Tenpenny is on the Net. She has a video out about the flu shot and many articles about vaccines. They are NOT safe and effective and she backs up all her information with statistics directly from the CDC and mainstream medical journals./p

pSign my petition urging vaccine manufacturers to disclose full ingredients/p
pMerck, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, SanofiPasteur, Pfizer, CDC, FDA: Disclose full list of all vaccines' ingredients and if peanut is used in them/p
pTHREE MILLION Americans suffer from peanut allergy and experts are not sure why. Some theorize that peanut oil is used in our vaccines, causing hypersensitivity to peanut, later leading to peanut/treenut allergy. We need to know the truth. Even if only a minority of people vaccinated were to develop peanut allergy, this is unacceptable because this is a lifelong condition with no known cure. Peanut/treenut allergies cause extreme hardships and anxiety for patients and families everyday at every meal for the rest of their lives. Peanut allergy is the most lethal of all food allergies killing more people than any other food allergy. Peanut/treenut is ubiquitous in our society. It is in all schools, most restaurants and processed foods. Avoiding it completely is virtually impossible. Patients with peanut allergy are likely to have a reaction within three years (95% chance). The most important treatment, Epinephrine (Epipen), is not 100% guaranteed to work. /p
pVaccinations are important and they do save lives, but we need to develop safer vaccines for EVERYONE. We should not be iatrogenically producing uncurable diseases in ANY patient receiving vaccines. We have very advanced science and we cannot find a safer alternative adjuvant to use in vaccines besides peanut oil? That is hard to believe. We are The United States of America! In addition, we have the right to know what substance we are injecting in our bodies. Partial vaccine ingredient disclosure is unacceptable. Vaccine manufacturers cite "trade secrets" as justification for witholding complete vaccine ingredients information./p
pChildhood vaccines are universally mandated in U.S. schools. More and more vaccines are being recommended for adults, as well. If we do not make sure that our vaccines are safe and free from peanut oil, many more people could keep acquiring and dying from peanut allergy. IF YOU DO NOT SIGN THIS PETITION, YOU, YOUR CHILDREN OR GRANDCHILDREN COULD BE NEXT TO BE AFFLICTED WITH PEANUT ALLERGY, AN UNCURABLE AND DEADLY ILLNESS./p
pFor my daughter who suffers from peanut allergy as well as three million more Americans it may be too late. But perhaps it is not too late for saving countless others from this fate./p
pI humbly thank you for your signature./p
pSome resources for references on this topic include: Heather Fraser's book "The History of the Peanut Allergy Epidemic," and New York Times articles from 9/19/1964 and 11/11/1966 announcing successful results in thousands of patients receiving vaccines containing peanut oil./p

pIn reference to the person who made the comment they received all their vaccines 30 years ago and don't have allergies, yeah, so did I and I don't have allergies, but the vaccine schedule 30 years ago looks NOTHING like the schedule from 2012/2013! Adding more than triple the amount of vaccines is nothing to ignore, more is not always better. And to the people who want to blame the poor moms who ate peanut butter, I really could care less about peanut butter, and probably only ate it on a few occasions in my pregnancy, yet I have a son with PA. If it's due to what you eat, my son should have been allergic to fruits/vegetables, and dairy, but, he is not allergic to any of those. And, to me, it's silly that someone can entertain the idea that it's probably due to how often one uses hand sanitizer and being "too clean" when they are not willing to entertain the idea that directly injecting something into the body that's whole purpose is to "stimulate the immune system" might actually have some side effects. After all, vaccinations are directly intended to impact the immune system, hence creating immunity, right? I think if it's rational to look at hand soap, then for crying out loud, we certainly should be thoroughly looking at things we are directly injecting into a person's body with known antigens. I am a licensed medical professional and worked in the medical field for many years before switching gears, and I can say for sure have been exposed to many germs, so I don't think "too clean" applies here either! I come from a large family and no one with food allergies until my son, so I don't think genetics applies either. If ana food allergies are genetic, my family would never have been here as they would have died out a long time ago before epi pens were available. It's environment, and maybe a complex and not profitable answer, so we may never know./p
