I thought I had started a thread a few weeks back about my children being totally unvaxed and spending a lot of time at a farm where there are lots of horses and cattle and such. I guess I didn't. Anyway, they wear shoes when they're out there but I wanted to ask about the risk factor of tetanus.
I also want to discuss was what I read in the Red Cross's latest training and information and first aide guides. These are supposedly competely up to date and on the up and up. They have a brief section about tetanus and say how you can get it from things like rusty nails. How is it, when this is reviewed and backed up by doctors, experts, and professionals, that it can possibly say this? It really confuses me and I'm not sure who to believe. One of my kids did step on rusting metal a long time ago and was fine, but can we talk about how this verified and basically 100% accepted literature can say that if it's not true? I'm very confused.
