I recently saw this article circulating on social media. The article is two years old, but after reading it, I thought about two other stories I heard from people in my life about their children developing Type 1 diabetes after vaccination. I feel it is important to make people aware that this can happen. Type I diabetes isn't what most people think. It isn't caused by eating sugary food or being overweight (that's Type II). It is an autoimmune disorder that happens when the immune system malfunctions and attacks the cells that make insulin. Most doctors agree that this occurs after some type of viral illness. The incidence of Type 1 has been dramatically rising, even though viruses are nothing new to the planet. No one can give an answer as to why. Below is a link to the FFH article about this.
