True natural immunity happens only after one recovers from the disease itself. With the actual disease, the microorganism had to pass through many of the body's natural immune defense systems in the nose, throat, lungs, and digestive tract before it ever gets as far as the bloodstream.. It's very likely that the microorganism triggers many biological events that are essential in building true natural immunity, about which doctors know little or nothing. When a child gets a new disease, he may feel sick for several days, but in the vast majority of cases he will recover.
The first vaccines by Jenner, Pasteur and Koch, and also most modern ones, are experimental proteins made from rotting, diseased samples of animal tissue (cows, sheep, monkeys, humans, and horses) carrying some "weakened" infectious agent. Others are toxins (poisonous by-products of microorganisms) that are neutralized by formaldehyde and aluminum.
Most vaccines have components like formaldehyde, aluminum, and mercury which are called adjuvants, or helpers.(PDR, 2001) Formaldehyde is a carcinogenic liquid, used for embalming. Mercury is added in the form of thimerosal, a preservative known to cause nerve damage, autoimmune disorders and cancer. Aluminum is a proven neurotoxin, positively associated with Alzheimer's and several other neurological disorders. Can we really get immunity from these concoctions?
