Vaccines lead to age-related diseases

I had an interesting conversation recently with a friend who made the above allegation. I promptly went into defense mode and gave my rant about people misunderstanding vaccines.

Turns out my friend had no such misunderstanding. She simply meant that, prior to immunizations, most people died before they had the opportunity to experience such ills as arthritis, heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and all those other diseases we may experience on the far side of 40.

Lol, well it is very true. Maybe those anti vaccine people do have a point about the dangers of vaccinating our kids. After all who wants their child to be susceptible to all of those diseases?
