  1. I took and passed Microbiology, Anatomy, Physiology and chemistry in college so I have a vague idea and grasp of immunization and vaccinations. They certainly work to build immunity and aid in fighting disease. The top grades in My microbiology class were in the 40 percentile and from that we were graded on a curve. I will say it again. 40% was the highest grade and we were graded on a curve based on the high grade. Nobody can convince me that we absolutely know 100% of what our brightest and best Dr and researchers are selling us. We could use floride in our water as an example. If “the solution to pollution is dilution” why do microdosing and Naturopathic medicine have any effect on healthy outcomes? Certianly immunizations work but that does not mean they are 100% effective,safe and fully understood.
