Vaccines administered to children are supposed to trigger production of antibodies which help the immune system to fight off infections. There are certain chemicals however, if present in the body of such children may slow down or even stop the vaccines from producing enough amounts of antibodies. This can lead to weakening of the immune system therefore making the child vulnerable and prone to infections. These substances are called PFOA and PFOS and are mainly located in the blood stream.
The chemicals are found in a class of compound known as Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) which have been yielded by the productions of chemicals used widely in homes. This is because of the fact that they make utensils and fabrics stain repellant and also they induce non stick properties. For example, Teflon and Scotchgard. These chemicals pollute the water and food. They end up being ingested by children leading to lower immune response even after immunization. The body is not able to produce enough antibodies to fight infections. Read the full story
