You seem to be trying to review and post scientific research. Make sure you know what you are reading and posting. Research can easily be schewed to look supportive of what ever side of the fence you sit on. You may like to review this site.

Thank you for your comment.

I have definitely realized that BOTH sides can use the numbers and research to say what they want it to say. The CDC does the same thing as well as many anti-vaccine sites. I do usually just stay away from the articles that are making accusations and throwing around "facts". One of the Polio sites I posted is like that but I found their theory interesting. I wouldnt base my whole decision on any one persons opinion.

I looked over that site you gave but I dont really see how that fits into an overall discussion of the immune system and how vaccines effect it? There is no way to nail down a mathematically sound comparison of risk because of issues like that article mentions and because a VERY small percent of reactions are reported, estimated to be only about 10%.
