I'm not sure how much stock I put into studies that include vaccines...one you are't going to get the whoel story b/c they want people to get vaccinated.

We're were talking the other day about the link between vaccinations and sids. But I guarentee no DR will say that or researchers as well.

This makes me SO MAD!!!!!!!!!! :ph34r:

It's only telling part of the truth, and presenting it in a misleading way.

Yes, vaccine manufacturers stopped producing most vaccines preserved with thimerosal in 2001. But they were allowed to continue to SELL the thimerosal-containing vaccines that had already been produced, and doctors were allowed to continue using them.

I know my daughter was nearly given a thimerosal-containing HIB vaccine in 2003. I know, because I insisted that the nurse bring me the paper listing the ingredients. She was trying to convince me that the thimerosal had been "taken out." She was wrong, of course.

So children who were given mercury-containing vaccines in 2003 and 2004 (and beyond, if they had flu shots and chicken pox shots, which most kids had) might very well have not been diagnosed until 2007.

This study is crap. They did NOT show that these kids received thimerosal-free vaccines. They just twisted it around to present the conclusion that they wanted.

My opinion is that this has nothing or little to do with celiac and the subject always causes some pretty violent reactions on both sides. People who believe one way or the other ALWAYS cast doubt on any information that doesn't support their position. It's almost like "discussing" abortion or politics. IMO, it either shouldn't be on this forum or it should be in the gab area. This is strictly my opinion.

As a fellow moderator, I agree with Richard. This is a topic area where rational discussion does not take place--just arguments from firmly set minds. If the "lock topic" option were available, I would use it here and now. Like Richard, this is my opinion and does not reflect the position of the celiac.com or the other moderators.
