I wanted to share the link. I should warn you It is a long interview but worth watching the whole thing. It helped to validate the classes I have taken as well as books and articles I have read.
Since deciding against vaccinating my one and only blessing DD (I finally conceived and gave birth at 39/40 yrs old.) I have struggled on a daily basis with the what ifs. So I am in a state of perpetual research. The morning after her birth I was verbally attacked by a hospital pediatrician for refusing to give my new born baby a hepatitis b vaccination, at which time I informed her that my new born would not be engaging in any unprotected sex, IV drug use or getting any tattoos in the near future there for she was not in any immediate danger . I also let her know that when I found out I was prego I gave up smoking so in no way was i going to be injecting formaldehyde or gluteraldihyde ( used as a cold sterilent in the Dental field) in my baby. As you can imagine she didn't take well to my answers and proceeded to tell me that her children were fully vaxed and fine at which time I replied then you are LUCKY the conversation went on much too long and she was completely annoyed when she stomped out of the room.
I also watched the change take place in my cousins child. One week I watched him and he was making eye contact and cooing, normal milestones for his age. The next week he had vaccines the following week I watched him again and he was completely unresponsive not cooing no eye contact it was like someone turned out the lights. There is no question in my mind about what happened to him. Several months later he was diagnosed with high end of the spectrum Autism. Nothing but a tragedy caused by the greed and corruption of our country. I say it that way because I don't just blame the Pharmaceutical companies I blame all that are in bed with them. Why are vaccine producers proteced by the federal government? Why is it OK for the higher ups at the CDC to own stock in such companies? (they sign a conflict of interest waiver) I guess that makes it all better. I wonder if the people running our country sign the same waiver? Why aren't more independent studies being conducted?( oh ya, there is no money in it.) Most of all, why aren't Doctors listening and standing up for children?
I suppose the moral to my ranting is I am great full for the people who can talk openly and share information and still take a stand for what is right for our familys. Thank you to all who post on Mothering!!!!!!!!!!!! (well maybe not all) LOL. I am very interested in feed back of any kind in regards to this topic.
