Why anti rabies vaccine like rabipur have caused neurological adverse effects like (ADEM, GB syndrome), is it not safe to take (PCECV) vaccine rabipur?

Why anti rabies vaccine like rabipur have caused neurological adverse effects like (ADEM, GB syndrome), is it not safe to take (PCECV) vaccine rabipur?

Seems coincidental: Rabipur is a Purified Chick Embryo Cell Vaccine
(PCECV), not known to CAUSE neurological side effects. A rare patient can get neurological problems after getting a vaccine... but that's coincidental unless the rate of neurological problems occurs more often in vaccine recipients than in non-recipients. For example, if a child dies in a car wreck after getting a vaccine, we don't blame the vaccine. ...Read more

Politicians using inflammatory statements just to get re-elected. Radio and tv reporting 1/2 truths for ratings. Lawyers hunting for class action suits for huge wins. Lobbyests putting clients ahead of what's right. And I can go on. ...Read more

One of the reasons is that people use vitamins as an excuse to avoid eating properly. It is much better to get nutrition from food.
