My point is that even if there is proof that vaccines are dangerous for dogs, how is that relevant to whether the H1N1 vaccine is safe? The two are not even remotely related. Your statement that until I have some close to me get sick or die, I cannot know what is relevant is ridiculous. I'm not discounting people who are sick or lose loved ones, but, again I don't believe rabies vaccines are relevant to the safeness of H1N1 vaccine.
As for autism,there is plenty of evidence that vaccines do not cause autism. Ealier this year a Federal Court of Claims found absolutely no link between vaccines and autism. The fact that autism has increased and vaccinations have increased do not prove a link between the two.
I am not one to follow the crowd blindly. I do my own research and asked my physician about the H1N1 vaccine and any medications I take. I tend to trust him more than crap posted on the internet.
Oh, and because a court finds that there is no correlation that means that's the last word on it? Just because someone loses a lawsuit doesn't mean that they are wrong. It wouldn't be the first time that being right doesn't mean you win in a court of law.
What evidence is there that vaccines do not cause autism? That's the problem with drugs, chemicals and other harmful substances. You will never get conclusive evidence as to what exactly the causation of a particular disease is, it may be that there are several factors that play together.
If you want to go down that route, what evidence is there that smoking causes lung cancer? I think it is the conventional wisdom that smoking increases your risk of lung cancer. Is there anything else than the observation that people who smoke have a higher occurance of lung cancer than others who don't smoke. I don't think there is any doubt that smoking greatly contributes to people developing lung cancer.
Does everyone who smokes develop lung cancer? No, of course not! Going by your statements I would have to say, it doesn't prove a link between cigarette smoke and lung cancer. Where is the conclusive proof that smoking causes lung cancer? It's more likely than not that it causes cancer. Meaning, people should think twice before they pick up a cancer stick.
I found your comment that what someone has to say about vaccine which happens not to coincide with your opinion as "irrelevant" rude and offensive. People who question the safety of a vaccine that has not been tested for long-term side effects may not be relevant to you but they may be to others. And not everything that is posted on the internet about health issues is "crap". I have come across doctors who don't know more than what is fed to them by drug companies. Some of the doctors that I have encountered I wouldn't trust as far as I can throw them. Just because someone has a MD behind their name and wears a white coat doesn't mean that I need to trust blindly what they say.
No offense to the medical profession, I know there are great doctors out there but still even with my current doctor who I think is phantastic, I still do my own research independently from him (which by the way he encourages).
My doctor says H1N1 vaccines are questionable as are other vaccines. What makes your doctor more credible than mine? Even in the medical profession there are disagreements. That doesn't render a different opinion "crap".
