An eat-your-veggies kind of claim
$29 is what "families on SNAP (i.e. food stamps) have to live on for a week."
An exaggeration coupled with fuzzy words

"Every year in the United States between 3,000 and 4,500 severe vaccine reactions are reported to the Centers for Disease Control. Not mild reactions. Severe reactions that land somebody in the hospital, the intensive care unit or cause a permanent disability or death."
