the virus has managed to mutate... nice, huh?
Allow me to try to clarify. My understanding is the diseases we now vax for were killing (or disabling or disfiguring. pretty much leaving a lifetime problem) people "back in the day" if you will. The vaccines came out and slowly, people stopped catching these diseases. A few were "eradicated" and people felt comfortable enough to stop vaccinating their kids because "vaccines cause autism" (which I also don't believe. I believe it can be a trigger, but it doesn't **cause** it) and slowly we start seeing cases of these "eradicated" diseases again.
My question (with hopefully a reply without snark) is if the vaccines aren't doing any good, why were the diseases gone when parents were vaccinating their kids and now that there are a lot that don't, some diseases are making a come back.
Someone else will have to take this on...I can't...I simply...just...I can't...
And won't. I have already tried to explain how different our environments are today - in comparison to "way back when". And I've already mentioned how much healthier the home environment is when each child has his or her own room instead of sharing one bed with 8 siblings. And how much healthier the home environment is when people live in a three-bedroom house with 2000 sq feet as opposed to a one-room house with only 30 sq feet...and don't forget about the refrigerated food and all those other nice inventions that make life in the US much cleaner today then way back when...vacuum cleaners, indoor toilet, hot water, clothes dryers...
I'm not replying to Serenity any longer so someone else will need to take this on. I don't know why we're not all dying from the plague today but I'm sure some of these smart ladies can help.
Please take a few moments and go poking around this website: www.insidevaccines.com
They may not know where the vulneralbility lies in these kids, but there are obvious triggers, vaccines being one of them.
