I need Vax help.
"I'm glad you are continuing to say that vaccines are not 100% safe and effective. The problem, is that oftentimes you construct your sentences as if to imply it - then when called on it, you do an about face then criticize your opponent for asking for something impossible or engaging in rhetorical arguments. Your insinuation that the anti-vax camp uses this as a soapbox to circulate said rhetorical arguments... I have seen that. There is no need to sensationalize the issue."
It is you and the other anti-vax people who are sensationalising this issue, creating a "manufactroversey" where one really doesn't exist.
You undo your own argument in the very first paragraph by listing Ian's death as part and parcel of your own fear based philosophy.
Fear based philosophy? Please furnish me the evidence that supports the universal use of Hepatitis B vaccine on newborns (within 2 weeks).
I like the way you disregard the fact that I have vaccinated people in my house and focus on the only that isn't. Those are the ones that will come home not showing proper symptoms to the 'VPD's to which they've been exposed. Antibodies don't mean squat when it comes to mounting an appropriate defense to not only attack and destroy 'pathogens' but to ALSO clear them. My current position is simply less irrational, I suspect many others like me can completely understand what I mean by that.
Are you now going to tell me that formula is just as good (a very important confounding factor by the way)? I'll not be defending breastmilk for you tonight, but you are totally welcome at the BF vs. FF debate. Breastmilk is the humble medium that houses beneficial, LIVE bacteria. Not alive? If you say so.
With the exception of donor milk, it is not dead and pasteurized. The literature is literally filled with studies that have examined the gut flora of both FF and BF children and found that FF children have micrflora that can become opportunistic and invasive in the right circumstance.
