Floyd 1 Draylon Floyd Mrs . Comstock March 24, 2017 Vaccines Soon after birth, many children across the U . S . , have to be vaccinated . These vaccinations are said to cause autism and other mental disorders for the children later on in life . The main danger with vaccines is that they can cause autoimmunity to where some anti-biotics and other medicines have no effect on their body . In some cases , susceptible moms get vaccinated either during or prior to pregnancy and develop an autoimmune disease or inflammatory condition; and then her offspring suffer . The consequences include, but are not limited to, the autoantibody circulating in her body interfere with proper development of the baby’s brain . In the future , vaccinations could cause a lot of problems for curing disease and disease research . The purpose of vaccinations is to introduce a virus/pathogen into the immune system so that a person can develop immunity to the pathogen without having to experience disease being treated . A vaccine takes a killed , inactive portion of a

Floyd 2 pathogen and injects it into the bloodstream to get the immune system to recognize it , but since the pathogen is inactivated , it does not cause the disease . The reaction of the immune system is different to a vaccine than if it were to encounter the natural pathogen in the environment . One of the known differences is that the mode of entry of the pathogen is different . In normal circumstances , most pathogens enter a person through the nose or mouth . In most vaccinations , the pathogen enters through an injection , completely passing over the immune system’s normal defenses . Since the pathogens are not a threat to cause an immune system reaction once they enter the blood , vaccines contain something called an adjuvant , which is placed in a vaccine to cause a strong immune response . Most vaccines use aluminum as an adjuvant , which triggers the necessary heightened immune system response . With the immune system in an alarmed state , it then reacts to everything in the vaccine , including the inactivated pathogen . The vaccination strategy allows vaccines to manipulate the immune system to develop antibodies to the specific pathogen , without progressing to the symptoms of the actual disease . Even though vaccines attack the immune system to try to make it more

Vaccinations enter a pathogen into the fetus to prevent the disease from occurring, but sometimes the intended effect of the vaccine can result in birth defects . The shock to the immune system is that vaccinations can sometimes hinder the development of the embryo within the fetus .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
