VACCINATIONS! PARENTS BEWARE!
School is starting and it is the time for those tear streaked faces after vaccinations. Some vaccinations are required for school registration. Others are still voluntary (like Gardisil, which I will never give my daughter due to the proved deadly side affects and the lack of substantial effectiveness).
As a parent, you have always had two options since finding out you were going to be a mommy/daddy: Listen to everyone else or research what is best for your own child.
Many tend to go the lazy route and let others do their parenting for them, in which case they have no one to blame but themselves when the desired result in their child’s development is not attained.
The best thing you can do for your child is to research the FACTS about anything you put into or onto or around your child, including vaccinations.
There are many people out there who, for one reason or another, have decided vaccinations are evil, have spread complete fabrications of the content of vaccinations to frighten parents, and have ultimately decided the fate of every child their unprotected child comes into contact with. These individuals will tell you anything to get you on their side. I know one of these anti-vaxers and you better believe she is a complete nutter! The things she has repeated from anti-vaccinations pamphlets and websites are outrageous and so far into left field, they have to start the game over.
There is a reason the U.S. no longer has outbreaks of diseases still killing off people in other countries by the hundreds each year. It’s called “vaccinations.” I find it ironic that many of these anti-vaxers preach that the Earth will take care of such things when vaccinations are created by NATURAL INGREDIENTS!
I encourage all parents to get the facts before listening to anyone and making a decision, including me. The best place to start is here: http://antiantivax.flurf.net/ . You’ll find a chart listing the ingredients of the most common vaccines and the truth behind the lies regarding vaccination contents.
