Swine Flu Party?
101
Mon, 10-19-2009 - 12:01pm

I was reading this blog and wondered about it. This H1N1 flu worries me - mostly because they're pushing the vax for it through so quickly. I keep wondering why they're doing that.


But, would you have a Swine Flu Party?

I just think it's weird that people who are afraid to expose their kids to killed or attenuated virus in vaccines would want to intentionally expose them to the all-out live virus.

So my answer to the original post is no, I wouldn't attend or throw a swine flu party, but, like past posters, I also wouldn't avoid someone who had it.

My answer to gwennyc:

<>
We would rather have our children (and ourselves) exposed to H1N1 (chicken pox/measles/rubella, etc.) in a natural way (ie: through the nose/mouth/eyes) than to allow someone to violate their natural defenses (skin) to inject them with something that hasn't been subjected to a double-blind study demonstrating effectiveness and safety. Especially when said vaccine contains Thimerosal (face it, whether or not you believe in the vaccine-autism connection, mercury is not good for you which is why they've done away with mercury thermometers and advise pregnant women to avoid swordfish, tuna, etc.).

<>
How bad would you feel if you got your child vaccinated and they were one of those who had a life-changing or lethal reaction?

<>
I don't want that to happen, obviously, but my unvaccinated child is no more dangerous than a vaccinated child in whom the vaccine was ineffective.

All of us parents, whether pro-vaccine, anti-vaccine, or undecided, make the decisions we believe are best for our children. We do the research (hopefully) and reach informed decisions based on that research. I just wish more pro-vaccine people would realize we're not out here flying by the seat of our pants, and that our research is every bit as valid as the research they base their decisions on.

I can understand the merits of pro vaccine and anti vaccine stances. However,

Why on earth would someone get the flu (or ANY illness) on purpose? Isn't the whole point of wanting immunity to NOT get sick?

Natural immunity is very different from man-made immunity (vaccines). I like the natural methods now that I've learned the truth about our immune systems and the truth about vaccines. Sometimes what we are taught to believe is not factual, I've learned that, I hope you will too.

Welcome to the board! This can be a great learning experience, it has been for me, do stick around.

Your body makes the same antibodies, so I don't know what you're talking about. And again, what's the point of immunity if you have to get sick to get it?

The flu vaccine can produce "flu like symptoms" per the insert.

No, I do not consider it the same thing. My experiencing "flu like symptoms" does not pose a threat to my infant's health, whereas my actually having the flu does.

By the way, thank you for the link. Which one of those links within it addresses how the antibodies are different? ETA: I see the wikipedia thing on antibodies, and I'm not trying to cause trouble and maybe I'm just missing it in the mountain of information, but it's just don't see where it is addressed that vaccines create different antibodies for a disease than the live disease itself.

Do you think its weird that a person can fall victim to societal brainwashing but then smarten up and start learning the facts later in life?

How badly would you feel if you learned that your vaccinated child got a disease and you didn't know it because the symptoms didn't present (because of the vaccine) but your child infected others around him. And then what if one of those children died? Would you feel differently because your child was vaccinated?

The vaccines do not protect your child from being a carrier of disease. You should learn about that, and then it all wouldn't seem so "weird". I know because I used to think the same way :)

In my case, I was a germaphobe for decades. Getting out of the habits I had spent years to develop doesn't happen overnight, but I'm working on it. I have finally stopped buying antibacterial soaps but that took me years to finally come around, even after I learned the truth about them.
