I want it to be clear when I say that I think vaccinations are way overrated, and though I’ve avoided them whenever possible, I am not “Anti immunizations“. I believe that every person has the freedom to choose what they deem is best for their family. It’s truly a case by case decision, and there’s a time and place where vaccines are either the best choice or mandatory, such as if you want to travel to a 3rd world country. Even then you have a choice to not travel there, or get the vaccinations required to travel into that country. As many of you may be aware, we currently have a pretty heated battle going on between the anti and Pro vaccine camps, yet both debates are being strongly influenced by FEAR. We have the fear of getting sick, and perhaps dying or being left debilitated. There’s the fear of the unknown with all those anti people travelling the world exposing everyone to deadly diseases. Like minded people such as myself fear being forced to subject ourselves to not only a process we don’t agree with, but also have valid concerns this vaccine is not the best thing for our bodies. Those individuals from my generation survived the measles, mumps, chickenpox, scarlet fever, and even whoopping cough. So when did all of these childhood diseases become so scary? Where do you think all the FEAR and anger around this subject is coming from?? ( I’d really like you to think about that.) The measles, with all it’s conflicting research and opinions is nothing more than a smokescreen, something to distract us while yet another of our freedoms slips away. Please, don’t make a decision based on fear. Schedule some time to come in and talk to me about your concerns if you’re confused, or unsettled about it. I will present both sides of the vaccination issue, allowing you to be prepared to make an informed decision that you feel is best for the well being of your family.
Almost one century ago (1921), Gandhi published a book where he deconstructed the dangers and lack of effectiveness of vaccines and the agendas surrounding them. His voice rings true now more than ever.
His Key points:
The nature of diseases like smallpox have been misconceived. While smallpox has a contagious component, vaccinated individuals can become infected, and non-vaccinated individuals remain immune, disproving Jenner’s original theory that vaccination equates to bona fide immunity.
Vaccination is a unsanitary practice. By injecting the ‘filth’ of a diseased cow and smallpox patient into the body of a healthy individual one inevitably makes them sicker, possibly producing new infections, ultimately resulting in a greater disease burden.
The route of administration of the vaccine — injection— harbors special dangers versus natural (oral) exposures to infection.
Fear of disease drives people to vaccinate against common sense and rationality.
Vaccination is unethical and immoral because of the manner in which the vaccine is produced (through the great suffering of poisoned animals)
The income generated through vaccination is the driving reason why the medical profession does not wish to identify aforementioned problems in safety and efficacy.
Conscientious objectors should be willing to stand their ground with courage and face persecution and penalties.
Those objecting for medical reasons should aspire towards mastery of the subject such that they will be able to win others towards their perspective.
Sanitation, hygiene, fresh air, water, and clean food are essential for preventing infection and/or helping those infected to recover.
