Ask me anything

Have a question?? Ask me.

The names Maggie and I'm 22. Currently living in the big o'l state of Texas but my hometown is 20 minutes outside of downtown Detroit. I'm a simple girl who enjoys a good cup of coffee, I'm currently in graduate school and slowly loosing my mind. Everyone has a story in this world, and it's my wish to listen to them.

There are two kinds of people: Those who keep you grounded and those who weigh you down.

DO NOT GIVE OR GET ANY VACCINATIONS FOR YOURSELF OR  YOUR KIDS………..

Ok, lets break this down nice and simple.
Formaldehyde is from the purification of the vaccine. 99.9% of which is removed. The reason it doesn’t give a dosage is so minuscule that it can’t be measured without going into picograms. That’s one trillionth of a gram. You breathe in more formaldehyde by driving down a busy road than in a vaccine.
Thimerosal is NOT elemental mercury, It is a molecular compound made up of carbon, hydrogen, mercury, sodium, oxygen, and surfer. This is used as a preservative for the vaccine. Thimerosal is used in a variety of other things, like tattoo ink, facial creams, nasal sprays. It’s toxic to humans only in fairly large quantities but highly toxic to aquatic born organisms like infectious bacteria. In short, it makes sure you don’t get salmonella from a stray bacteria from the chicken embryos.As for the dosage of the Thimerosal. That is the most laughable point in this post. It says 25 mcg, that’s micrograms, or one millionth of a gram. To put this in perspective, a dollar bill weighs roughly 1 gram, the average human eyelash is around 80-90 micrograms. The box also says that it contains a 5ml (milliliter/cc) vial which leads me to my next point.
A little simple math and we find out that 25 mcg = 0.00003 ml and a little more math we find that 0.00003 ml is 0.00006% of 5 ml. Let me put this another way. By the age of 5, an American child weighs about 50-55lbs and their body contains 55 mcg of Uranium. I don’t see any kids running around with radiation sickness, so I think they’re safe with a preservative in them.TL;DR: This is like saying you don’t want your child eating their baked birthday cake because raw eggs were used to make it and you don’t want your child getting salmonella from it.

THANK YOU

Reblogging for the commentary, not in support of the OP.

Antivax is just ignorant.  Plain and simple, people just don’t understand.

formaldehyde is in breast milk, too, but you don’t see anti-vaxxers telling people no to breastfeed…..hmm I wonder why

Few things in life send me into full rage….people who advocate against most vaccines are one of them.

People who choose not to get vaccinated are putting people who can’t get vaccinated (for various reasons) at risk. Stop being so selfish, assholes.

you’ve got a warm heart
you’ve got a beautiful brain
