Jim,
Thank you for understanding. Do you (or anyone reading this) know if
their is any research being done with regards to genetic testing prior
to immunizations?
I have had so many responses from people all over the world who's
symptoms or onset of a disease happened as a result of the vaccine. I
can't believe anymore that this is coincidental. How do you explain an 8
year old with fibromyalgia? So many people with fibromyalgia had
significant worsening of symptoms after an immunizations. These symptoms
have lasted for years. How can this be explained in scientific terms?

I am searching for an understanding and an improvement in the quality of
the studies being done with regards to vaccines. More long term studies
need to be done.

Thank you for listening and most of all understanding,
Cathy
