If you are vaccine-choice or anti-vaccine, lecture 23 should probably be skipped. If you truly are a parent scientist, perhaps look here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/220807175/129-Research-Papers-Supporting-the-Vaccine-Autism-Link. Click to and read the studies instead of reading a blog summarizing them. There are many well-respected medical doctors and scientifically educated professionals who believe in a toxin-link to developmental disorders. Think about it; if the govt. recommends pregnant women limit fish consumption during pregnancy, due to exposure to environmental pollutants, why would it be 100% safe to inject something directly that could be contaminated. Please see list of CDC recalls not related directly to developmental disorders but to illustrate the point that people can be harmed by vaccines. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/concerns-history.html By the way, if you do vaccinate, please don't use acetaminophen aka Tylenol as a pre-treatment. It severely inhibits the liver detoxification process.
