I don't think the vaccine is the immediate culprit.  Perhaps, using same
needle over and over again may be more relevant.

But, yes, there are fundamental issues about vaccination.  Humans,
bacteria, virus, and other parasitic organisms have been around for long
time, and things settle into equilibrium over time.  There are academic
question about whether over-vaccinating disturbs that equilibrium.  In
particular, researchers are now thinking aloud that childhood diseases
(which we have targeted through vaccination) may be necessary factor in
the proper development of human body, and that vaccination only creates
other immune related problems.

There were some study into whether vaccination and over-use of
estrogenic compounds (I think they were talking about shampoos) are
related to the general decline in male virility.  I'm not into biology,
so I don't where it went.  Even so, I don't think cosmetic companies are
to blame. :-)

Of course, people runs company to make money.  Vaccine company makes and
sells vaccine.  Milk company sells milk, and will say it's good for you.
Even though the only people who are losing bone calcium are those who
drink milk like water, they will defend their livelihood.  Did you
expect something else, Hugh?
