Vaccines connected to AIDS, cancer, etc., edited
I've been a vaxing parent. Not all, and some delayed...but still a vaxing mom. I thought I had done my research. I have a non-vaxing, non-microwaving, non-plastic-using, less-chemical-using-best-friend [yes, Melinda, I'm talking about you ;)] that has made me want to look into this more. Now that I've done alittle more research I realize that a lot of what I had read before was pretty vague. There are a couple vaccines I've been holding off on b/c my dd is so tiny. She has an appointment next week and I know the doctor will bring up the vaccines. I'm not looking forward to this. Here's one of the articles I just read: http://www.thinktwice.com/Polio.pdf
Non-vaxing parents: is this information similar to what persuaded you to not vaccinate?
Vaxing parents: have you seen things like this? What are your thoughts?
What has the been the biggest factor in your decisions?
Okay so it looks like me changing the name of the title pissed a lot of people off. When I was doing my research years ago, I decided that getting my kids vaccinated was beneficial. Since then, I've questioned my decision. I've heard many things that scared me. That made me hold my breath for weeks every time I got them their shots. I don't know what to trust when I research things. I know that most of what I read that is pro-vaxing seems very vague. I read things that say things like immunizations prevent diseases. But then I read things like that link I put in that have actual numbers, statistics, and references. When I read things like that, I want to know more. But I don't know where to find reliable information. When I've brought the subject up to doctors, they kind of roll their eyes and say, 'everything's safe'. Umm that's not good enough. I was looking for some educated ladies on the topic. I've been trying to make an educated decision for years, and was looking for a little help on the topic. This doesn't make me uneducated, ignorant, or hysterical. I think it makes me smart.
Oh yeah, and the link (for the people who didn't read it) mentions how researchers believe certain shots introduced AIDS and other ailments to humans by using animal tissue in the vaccines. There's numbers and what I feel is pretty close to proof. It makes sense...animals can have diseases and immunities we're not aware of. And maybe it's possible that we could be putting ourselves at harm by using it.
