I just did a whole lot of research on Hep B and the vaccine. here is just some of the information I have compiled:
This information is provided by Mercola.com, the world's most visited and trusted natural health website with over 25,000 pages of free health insight.
Warning: New Hepatitis Vaccine Recs Can Devastate Newborn's Health
The newly released 2002 immunization schedule encourages the routine use of hepatitis B vaccine for all infants before hospital discharge to
·Safeguard against maternal hepatitis B testing errors and test reporting failures
·Protect neonates discharged to households in which hepatitis B chronic carriers other than the mother may reside
·Enhance the completion of the childhood immunization series
The annual "Recommended Childhood Immunization Schedule" of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) is issued in January of each year.
DR. MERCOLA'S COMMENT:
Folks I am outraged. We need to take action now. These recommendations are inexcusable.
There is no possible logical recommendation for this action. All of these arguments are fatally flawed.http://www.mercola.com/2002/jan/23/h...is_vaccine.htm**Edited per copyright policy**
