Do breastfed babies need to be immunized?

Yes. Despite the known benefits of breastfeeding, such as enhanced protection against some colds, ear infections, and diarrhea, breastfeeding does not prevent Diseases that can be prevented. Unlike vaccines, breastfeeding does not stimulate the infant’s own immune system to produce the antibodies needed to fight very specific diseases. Fortunately, vaccines do not interfere with the beneficial immunity gained from breastfeeding, just as breastfeeding does not hinder the effectiveness of immunization.

I still don't have an answer on if breast fed babies and then children are fully immunized why do children still get disease like the chicken pox, measles etc?

Mom.

Can I please request that you post the DIRECT link to your information. You are already on the web site - cut and paste the link to the site.

For everyone else it is:

http://www.doh.wa.gov/cfh/immunize/immunization/childhood-faqs.htm#8

That is a government web site with a frequently asked questions section. There are NO supporting documents/studies/links given to support the information on their site.

Opinions can be accurate - they are STILL just opinions.

"I am of the opinion that Agriculture has played a significant role in disease as well..."

There you go again. I swear, every-time you say that or refer to it I go and thaw out a roll or two and pop it it the oven just to eat it with a slew of butter. I think I must be subconsciously afraid I'll learn something that makes me quit eating bread forever. ;) It is what I used to refer to as good-for-me-bread (except for the butter). It has whole grains, flax seed, black sesame seeds and more...oh and sooooooo yummy with all this butter!

It's probably the butter that's gonna kill me, huh? But I still want to investigate your theories - it's so interesting.
