I have done a fair amount of research over the years regarding many different health issues.
Through experience I have learned to avoid dealing with the medical establishment, you might say because they seem to specialize in emergency medicine and they do that well in some regards.
I have found many medical doctors almost devoid of knowledge on how to prevent illness. Perhaps they have the knowledge but do not use it for different reasons.
I donâ€™t want a drug that generally has side effects.
And I wish to avoid visitations where you almost feel guilty asking a question because they are rushing you through and out with prescription in hand.
Vaccines are interesting. I have hundreds of articles, both pro and con, for vaccines.
I believe it comes down to personal choice.
If you are going to make a statement that people with concern button their lips [Anti-vaxxers, button your lips, April 16 Odd Thoughts, Langley Advance] then I would suggest you do some research, otherwise you are not helping.
There are qualified, practicing physicians who make cases for avoiding vaccines should be avoided.
The acknowledged risks might then be weighed against what you are being vaccinated against.
Perhaps there is a reason why anti-vaxxers are growing in number â€“ itâ€™s called waking up.
