Common Sense

I know that I will probably be creating a s!$t storm with this post, but it is what I feel and believe, so it shall be ;)

Today, January 20, 2012 a mother and a father have asked that today be a day that we all remember children that have been injured or died from a vaccination(s). Their daughter, Stacy, who was born premature, passed away at 8 weeks old after getting 9 vaccinations in one day!  9 people!!  These are little tiny babies, with little tiny immune systems and they should NOT be given this many in one day!  It is insane!

Don't get me wrong, I agree with some (not all) vaccines, but I adamantly do not believe that they should be given this many in one day.

Ask yourself this.  Have you ever stopped to research what is in these vaccines?  It is horrifying!  Once you know what is in them you become very choosy on which ones your kids will get.

Here are few ingredients of a some of the vaccines:

Polio: Baby cow blood serum, glutamate (msg), formaldehyde, monkey kidney cells (yes, you read that right.  FREAKING MONKEY KIDNEY CELLS!!!)
Rotavirus: Monkey kidney cells, and traces of fetal cow blood.

 And no, I am not one of 'those people' that believe that thimersol has had anything to do with any kind of delay Jake has had.  However, I do believe that had I let my Pediatrician give him the MMR when she recommended it, that I would have a vastly different child on my hand and NOT in a good way.  I, whole-heartedly, believe in every fiber of my being that I did the right thing in delaying the MMR shot.  I do believe that not all kids can handle all the vaccines the same.  Each person's chemistry is different and each person's body reacts differently.  Facts have proven that.

I do believe that some vaccines are not worth the risk.  Take for instance the Hep B vaccine.  This disease is most prevalent in Third World Countries where sanitation is poor and or through nonexistent sewer plants.  The disease is also passed through IV drug needles.  This vaccine is recommended at birth, for reasons I completely do not understand.  I knew that when Caroline was born, she would not be getting that vaccine because a) she wasn't going to be exposed to an IV drug needles and b) she wouldn't be traveling abroad.  I also don't believe in getting them vaccinated against the flu.  And really, how do you really do that when they are about 10,000 different strains out there and when a vaccine is given it is typically given for one flu strand.  

So, today please take a moment to think about all those babies that have been adversely affected by vaccines.

Here is to the link about baby Stacy:

These are just a few examples and all ingredients can be found in each vaccine's product insert that you can request from your Pediatrician.  The info that I am quoting is from the book "The Vaccine Book" by Dr. Robert Sears.
