The most popular pediatrician of Ukraine Dr. Komorowski recalled the most dangerous misconceptions about vaccination. The data cited by Komorowski, formulated by the world health organization (who).
Here misconceptions about vaccinations that still believe parents:
With the growing level of hygiene will disappear and disease
Hygiene, hand washing and clean water help protect people from diseases, but many infections can spread regardless of the degree of our cleanliness. If the population is not vaccinated, diseases that have become rare, such as polio and measles, will quickly reappear.
Vaccines are dangerous — they can cause side effects and even death
In most cases, the vaccine causes minor and temporary reaction (arm pain or slight fever). Serious side effects are extremely rare and are carefully monitored and investigated. You have a much greater chance of getting serious consequences of vaccine preventable diseases than from the vaccine itself.
Vaccines against diphtheria, tetanus, Calusa and the vaccine against polio are calling the sudden death of infants.
Not there is a causal link between administration of vaccines and sudden death in infants, yet these vaccines are applied in the period when children are at risk of SIDS. In other words, deaths from SIDS and would have occurred in the absence of vaccination. These four diseases are life threatening and that is not vaccinated against them, the infants are at substantial risk of death or severe disability.
Vaccines contain mercury
Thiomersal is an organic substance containing mercury, which is added to some vaccines as a preservative. This is the most common preservative used in the vaccines supplied in vials for multiple doses. There are no data indicating the health risks that amount of thiomersal used in vaccines.
In the 1998 survey, where concern was expressed about a possible link between the vaccine against measles-mumps-rubella (CSC) and autism revealed serious flaws, and it was withdrawn by the journal that published it. But this caused panic, which caused the reduction in immunization rates, and subsequent outbreaks of these diseases.
Influenza is a nasty disease, and the vaccine will not help
The flu is more than just a disease. This is a serious disease that annually kills 300-500 thousand of lives around the world. Pregnant women, children, the elderly and any person with any pathology, were at risk of severe infection and death. Most influenza vaccines provide immunity against three most common strains. This is the best way to reduce the chance of developing a severe flu or spread it to other people.
We will remind, Komorowski spoke about the advisability of vaccination after the disease.
As reported Politeka, Komorowski told how to reduce the risk of disease in flu season.
Also Politeka wrote that Komorowski told who daily need to temper throat.
