If you are pregnant or have small children or are even thinking about starting a family, I urge you to read up on safer vaccination practices.
The ever expanding immunization schedule (see Kim Stagliano's blog)was put in place not to protect your child, but to pad the pockets of a select few. Unfortunately, people standing to make a lot of money from vaccines were also in charge of vaccine safety. Too eager to push new vaccines through the approval process, they made hasty decisions without proper study.
Dr. Stephanie Cave wrote a book titled What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Childhood Vaccinations. I heard her speak at a DAN! conference a couple of years ago and I really liked her. She became a doctor later in life, after raising her children. I like to think this gives her an edge in the "not losing your soul" battle that so many kids in med school unfortunaly are worn down from and defeated by. In her book, Cave informs parents about immunizations and outlines a safer vaccination schedule to follow.
If your doctor isn't willing to alter the vaccination schedule, or treats you disrespectfully, get up and leave. The idea of searching for a new doctor may seem daunting, but compared to the reality of raising a vaccine injured child? Trust me. Confronting a rude physician is a piece of cake.
I am a registered nurse. I am not anti-vaccine. I understand the need for protecting the public health. I do however live with the cost of "following the herd" mentality every day.
Another source to look at is Dr. Mercola's
site. It's pretty "in your face" but then again, so is autism.
I don't know why I even beat this drum? It's not like it's gonna help my children? Besides, no one wants to hear this. But then again, maybe one person will listen? That one? I write this for you.
