Regarding measles, note that prior to vaccination in 1980, measles killed around 2.6 million people annually, mostly children under the age of five. The fatality rate from measles today is still around 3 in 1,000 cases.

That said, from 2006-2007, after the completely bogus MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine/autism scare, the UK saw 2,000 cases. This is more cases than the previous ten years *combined*. In other words, this pseudoscientific scare mongering caused over 1,600 more cases of unnecessary suffering in the following two years, and likely around 5 additional deaths.

All thanks to Andrew Wakefield's bogus and overpublicized study, which has been found to be not only fraudulent, but Wakefield had a vested interest in making the current MMR vaccine look bad so he could promote his own vaccine instead.

If you want a bad guy to target, forget some imaginary "Globalists", Andrew Wakefield is a real cause of suffering and death worldwide.

@furrything: I don't know what you think a "Globalist" is, but it sounds like crazy conspiracy talk to me.

Regarding "vaccines hurting troops", I'm guessing you're talking about Gulf War Syndrome? If so, the vaccinations have been ruled out as a cause. The actual cause appears to be exposure to a combination of organophosphate pesticides and sarin nerve gas (released during stockpile disposal).

And as far as fillings go, mercury amalgam fillings release about 1-3 micrograms of mercury per day, well within EPA/FDA safety levels. A 6 oz can of tuna, on the other hand, has around 60 micrograms of mercury. The EPA/FDA recommends not going over 9 servings of tuna per month for non-pregnant/nursing adults.

While they don't use amalgam fillings anymore because there are better/safer options, they're essentially safe and removing them is actually likely to release more mercury at once than leaving them in.

(part 2)

On the other hand, you might want to look into some of these "natural" treatments, such as ayurvedic "medicine", which is often deliberately contaminated with arsenic as a part of the treatment. Or are these wacky "Globalists" secretly behind this too?

Oh, no: the Globalists would NEVER put anything harmful into our bodies. They would NEVER expose troops to a roostertail of nasty 'vaccines' and ruin thousands of lives. They would NEVER, EVER think of mixing Mercury amalgam for dental fillings.
Nah: they're a pretty good bunch!

I really appreciate the fact that nobody here is dumb enough to be anti-vaccination. It's reassuring.

My mother exposed me to chicken pox on purpose as a small child....When I got the chicken pox, she then laughed at me and said I was going to turn into a chicken, and spout feathers, a beak, and I would have to live in a chicken coop..I cried and cried...I now look back on that moment and think to myself...Damn, she was wrong because I never turned into a chicken....true story.. Going to bed now..night

An-egg, after having viewed the design specs of those cannisters, it appears there is a seal vial within the cannister that we cannot see from the above angle of the can.

Over analytical vaginal cleaner.

Wouldn't safe handling of chlorine involve a respirator or at least a fume hood? I mean if it is sealed in a can then you wouldn't need the gloves either, if it isn't those goggles aren't going to do much good.

We didn't have pox parties but there were me and my cousins who all had measles at the same time.

I was around 4-5 and the main thing I remember about it was that my mum and dad cleared the furniture out of the lounge downstairs and brought mine and my sisters beds down so that they could look after us down there night/day.

@nikkypickles
Back when I was a kid in the 70's I remember 'pox parties' a few friends of mine back in primary school went to them. My old dear thought it stupid, so I never went god bless her

Is there still a "fashion" for pox parties? Because I'd love to know if these same idiots who won't vaccinate their children are the same ones encouraging pox parties and contributing to the cleansing of the gene pool by removing their own offspring.

I would say get a vaccination, but that can lead to drug addiction, because needles are fun and stuff like that.
