    Vaccines are usually given via a hypodermic injection, but some are given through the mouth or nose. There are two main groups of vaccines: live-attenuated vaccines and inactivated vaccines.
    Live-attenuated vaccines: Live-attenuated basically means alive, but very weak. These vaccines are made when the virus is weakened to such a level that it reproduces only about 20 times in the body. By comparison, natural viruses reproduce thousands of times. When the vaccine is made, the virus or bacteria is weakened in a laboratory....

    Why should the words aluminum salts, antibiotics, and formaldehyde make me uncomfortable?

    These words should make us all uncomfortable, as should all the other chemicals, binders, preservatives, and stabilizers; namely, monosodium glutamate, thimerosol, and on and on and on.

    grulla: in my response above, I mentioned the use of MSG (monosodium glutamate) and thimerosol. The thimerosol is mercury. Thimerosol is used as a preservative in some vaccines. Glad you raised the question.

    Grulla, the question was rhetorical.

    Why yes, it certainly should — it's a genuine question. How could you put a period after that question of mine? I'm asking why those three words should make me uncomfortable. The reason it's rhetorical is that we all know the answer; the question is merely there for effect, i.e. to direct attention to those three words and require you to weigh them carefully.
