One of the constant areas of discussion is the "natural" approach to dealing with VPD.

Breastfeeding is protective against rotavirus.

Why are you comparing what people do in the US to what is happening in Africa?

I thought Bill and Melinda Gates had rushed to the rescue anyway...

I read everything.

So you weren't comparing the US to Africa... again? My mistake.

Apparently iVillage took exception to my use of the phrase "psychpaths", which was meant in the most genial manner.


Rands, it is a matter of cost / risk on the improvement of conditions versus hygiene.

You are totally oblivious to the fact that when vaccine policy changed and we started vaccinating babies before they left the hospital we've eliminated the possibility of having a control group.

Yes, you will have to recruit unvaxxed kids - that's your own fault my friend.

Gimme a break.

<< No artificial protection allowed! >>

Oy. Herd immunity is not solely reserved for the vaccinated. Dealing with and overcoming disease is what created the phenomenon in the first place... lest you forget.

Eh... no. Vaccines that have already been refused are not lifesaving medicine.

Industrial Revolution? Minor detail! Defecating in the same water that you also drink? No big deal! Doctors and surgeons not washing their hands before performing surgeries? Standard of care. *facepalm*

He/she can't help it, it's all they got. The scare tactics used to confuse parents is downright shameful.
