I must preface this post with “I am NOT an anti-Vaxxer.” Nor do I trust every word the gov’t and medical institutions voice as gospel. There is a “place of reason and common sense somewhere in the middle.” Currently, the CDC recommends 69 doses of 16 vaccines from a child’s first day of life through the age of eighteen. I question the SCHEDULE and the QUANTITY of vaccinations attempting to be mandated by law. Whether it’s natural or prescriptive, the least amount of any substance producing the maximal benefit allowing the body optimal function is the quantity I believe in. The concept that “a little is good, therefore a lot must be great,” is untrue and potentially dangerous. The CDC is also recommending up to an additional 72 doses of 13 different vaccines from age nineteen to death. ADULT vaccinations are unlikely the missing component to the improved health status of our adult population. Fewer burgers and more vegetables will improve the quality and quantity of more lives than any vaccine will. Why has 160 cases of measles in a California theme park (where NO ONE HAS DIED) created a frenzy requiring immediate changes to our laws?
When a process starts with good intentions and billions of dollars supersede the original purpose, we need to OPEN OUR EYES AND EARS and ask ourselves, “is the motive truly in our best interest?”
In my opinion, each person should have the right to make that decision. Please don’t let this issue be swept under the rug. Remember the same gov’t agencies and medical institutions use to say “Smoking was good for you.” See for yourself. (The commercial follows a 15 second ad. It’s worth your time.)
