Hepatitis B vaccine (HBV)

What is the Hepatitis B vaccine

Hepatitis B is a liver disease that can lead to the development of cancer later in life. Children are unlikely to contract it unless they have an infected adult in their household or they have been exposed to infected blood or other body fluids. 

Does immunizing adults also help

Immunizing adults against the disease has been ineffective. The idea is to vaccinate people when they are still young children so that they are immune once they become adults.

The hepatitis B vaccine is genetically engineered and highly toxic. It should in my opinion not be given to babies or children under any circumstances.

In fact, all vaccinations are ineffective and dangerous. If parents want healthy children, they should keep them vaccine-free.

"Vaccines contain substances which are so noxious that they should not ever be injected into a human body."
