What do you believe plays a more important role in the development of healthy children?
Eating healthy, exercising, playing in a social environment with other children, getting adequate sleep, drinking adequate amounts of water, family love, spiritual guidance
Receiving up to 72 Vaccinations from the age of 0-18?
If we stopped vaccinating children do you believe more children would die from:
complications of measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, polio, diphtheria, tetanus, etc…
Complications of cancer, obesity, type 2 diabetes, etc…
The point of this post is NOT to suggest we choose between creating healthy lifestyles for our children or vaccinating them. It is to prove that most parent’s BELIEFS (versus their ACTIONS) are not on the same page. We recognize how important lifestyle habits are to achieving better chances for healthier outcomes, yet place much greater emphasis on vaccination treatments.
Is it because vaccinations are fast and easy? We don’t bring children into this world to make our lives easier, so why are we choosing an easier path that doesn’t achieve the goal for healthier outcomes?
If parents are FORCED to vaccinate children to help them live “healthier lives”, why don’t we FORCE our parents to exercise them, feed them healthier diets and satisfy more important lifestyle habits required for healthier child development?
How sad is it to realize we don’t care enough about our children’s lives to make the hard decisions. Implementing healthy lifestyle habits into our children’s lives requires significant EFFORT. Vaccinating our children is basically EFFORTLESS.
Is it fair to our children to raise them with this ATTITUDE. Until we accept the realization that the vaccine needle doesn’t satisfy our entire responsibility as “concerned parents” with the health and vitality of our children, our negligence will continue to contribute to the increasing rates of disease our children face today.
This leaves us with three options:
Not to care and continue following the same destructive path so our children can develop and suffer impaired health (and loss of quality of life).
Feel overwhelmed, do nothing and therefore, follow the same destructive path so our children can develop and suffer impaired health (and loss of quality of life).
Decide our children deserve BETTER including the RIGHT to grow up and experience the health and love they’re entitled to.
