Sure, but it'll be quite some years from now till I get my own place. Could be a long time. But I will study it, along with botany. I'll review different teks and try to come up with a good bulk one, research equipment etc. I'm going for a controlled and productive indoor grow.

I think if the vaccine was safe enough to not cause potential harm such as paralysis and nerve damage (which has been proven to happen to some patients) or potential autism like the claims that people are making, at least 95% would take it like is what required. I know that it can't be 100% safe, and I know it would be expensive. Nonetheless, if the health care industry cares as much as it claims to, then money should not be an issue. Would it not?

Money is absolutely an issue. It shouldn't be when concerning our health and it's absolutely disgusting to see the current state of the pharmaceutical industry but it's difficult to get around. The whole business runs around a lot of money. You've got companies trying to make money to keep afloat, expand, advance, then make more money; you've got people spending absurd amounts of money on a degree that will hopefully give them a comfortable life; people gambling all this money on research sinkholes and companies that don't want to invest because research could turn out one way or the other. The list goes on; and then there's the average person, making an average income that needs their medicine like everyone else, but a lot of money was involved in making that medicine. I'm happy it's not entirely that way and we've made great strides in research regardless but the health care industry follows the money like everyone else. It's improving along the way, at least I'd like to think so.

The hydrolized gelatin, to make things clear. Is a substance that can be taken by mouth to improve skin and join health. But some people experience the adverse effects similar to the ones described that were caused by the vaccines. So to gain the trust of the people, we ought to get rid of the metals. To gain the highest possible safety, we ought to get rid of hydrolyzed gelatin. Sure, people may still react negatively, but it will be a lot more trusted if we were to do that. I am no scientist, and if I was I would definitely conduct experiments right away. But from what I have read, I think that the best course of action would be an ultimate compromise.

I actually did my research to see what people worried about and I have found an ingredient which is in even thimerosal and alluminum free vaccines. It is called hydrolyzed gelatin. This has been known to cause nerve damage in some people, often resulting in paralysis. My middle ground solutions is to find alternative vaccines that anti vaxxers can trust. So far the best one I can find is the MMR II vaccine which has no mercury or alluminum in it like the anti vaxxers fear. But it does have hydrolyzed gelatin which I think is probably more worrying than the mercury. If we can make an effort to change the ingredients in order to earn more public trust, then we solved the issue right there. Forcing a vaccine onto someone will only result in more conflict and conspiracy theorists. If the scientists are ultimately out for public well being then they shouldn't actually have a problem with that idea.

I 100% agree with increasing research into safer alternatives, however it's easier said than done. The NIH and WHO have funneled a ridiculous amount of money already into vaccine research and the stuff out there being pushed is the stuff that works. Are there better things out there with lower risks? For some things yes. Will your insurance cover it? Probably not. The best way to go about it is to educate the public and so far that has gone well, but a growing trend of not vaccinating kids is permitting outbreaks like the one at Disney. We are going to witness many more like it, which is unfortunate because it's so easily avoidable.

On a diffident note, how safe do you think you would have to make this alternative? I have trouble believing we could ever get everyone to take any kind of medication if given the choice.
