  • I wish the "eradicate" blinders were taken off and more focus put on boosting natural immunity. It isn't necessary to try an eradicate a contagious illness when you can lower incidences of severity leading to fatality instead. In other words, make people stronger so they can fight off the infection all on their own.

  • Why is it so hard to believe that not being vaccinated can be harmful?

  • Because that is by and large paranoia. Rarely there are adverse reactions but thanks to the lie about vaccines causing Autisim (an experiment fabricated by a doctor who was a paid witness in a trial years ago) diseases that should be nearly if not entirely extinct are making a comeback.

  • I have no problem saying that some children will have sensitivity to the vaccines, but the VAST majority of kids are just fine. It's like letting your kids play outside- yeah, some kids are going to break an arm or a leg, but most are going to be just fine and actually be in better shape because of it.

  • Why is it so hard to believe that vaccines may not be as harmful as some believe? I don't get why everyone makes a huge deal about them when the studies are so wishy washy with their information.

  • and you are right some kids do do fine. but what if your child was that 1 or 100 that didnt do ok... while doing my own research i have learned that there are high risk and i refuse to be pressured into making my son take them. but i feel each person should research and get there own understanding.

  • Do vaccines have negative side effects for some kids? Yes. does that mean we should ban them all? No. Everyone reacts differently to different things. Some people are deathly allergic to bee stings, so lets kill all the bees! You cannot make something that will not negatively effect SOMEONE. People just need to use common sense with these kinds of things. If a vaccine for polio is given to 100,000 people and 200 of those people die from the vaccine, it's tragic and it sucks. But how many of those people would have died from polio if they hadn't taken the vaccine?
