I seem to remember a study in science (last year?) that uncovered a 
corelation with vaccinations and asthma in which the opinion was that the 
 vaccinated children were not getting 'natural' upper resperatory 
infections and this may result in increased sensitivity due to a skewed 
local concentration of immune cells.  but then again i could have that 
wrong.
