I have been talking to my friend for about a year or so about my stance on vaccines. She is my moms age so no longer has to worry about her own child's vaccination schedule, but she does have grandchildren, one of which lives with her and her husband (her daughter lives there too.) her 4 year old grandson that lives with her is autistic. His mother is an RN and has been very pro vaccine. My friend has been giving her info and telling her things and she would just get hateful because she knows vaccines save lives! Well, a little while ago she started her son on a more natural organic diet. My friend couldn't help but point out in the midst of an argument that she is making sure he eats all organic, but she is injecting who knows what into him? Doesn't make sense! She didn't have a response to that! And now just a short time later, she asked for my help with an exemption to enroll him in kindergarten! Yay! When my friend asked me that I almost cried I was so happy that it finally hit her!
I also have a cousin that just had a baby in January and because of the information I provided she did her research and has decided not to vaccinate him (and leave him whole)!
So keep spreading the word! You never know who you will influence. It may be the person you least expected.
