I'm worried that this profit-driven push to sanitize childhood is going to bite us back one day.
I think the thousands of cases of serious adverse reactions (not to mention death), plus the latest research linking autoimmune disorders with vaccines are an indication that we are already paying a heavy price.
In an ironic twist to the pro vaxers' position on herd immunity, the vaccine program they are so fond of is riding on the backs of those who have had severe reactions.
