I plowed through research after research even though I understood only half of it. The abstract was always the same: Vaccines are effective and have not been proven to cause harm. And I believed it.
BUT, as my dd kept pointing out, my grandson had this little paternal cousin who was born perfectly normal, and in fact had been extremely bright, and remained that way until he got his MMR....
Then something happened to him. He was diagnosed with autism. That's when we started to research the issue.
When I finally opened my ears I heard more and more stories about parents witnessing their children deteriorate after vaccines...
So then I started looking at the diseases that we are preventing with those particular vaccines. For that I actually used a medical book from a medical student. And I saw that those diseases are very deadly. They are some of the most precarious illnesses - UNLESS a child is vaccinated.
Did you ever read those books? They are the source for our doctors. All research is done and cited. No one has to do it for themselves. Nor do they need any other sources. Only the material that is preseted to them. A medical student simply has to remember it and believe it. And they do!
I read up on every single disease that I have had as a child. I didn't know I had been in such peril. Not only I, but also my children, my dh, both our parents, and both our grandparents.
That's when I started to examine my sources more closely.
And you know what I have come to believe is my very best source now?
Commons sense! There is nothing like it. Some people don't have it, but I DO.
