|Pediatricians are not all brainwashed money-grubbing sheeple ! Some of them are quite intelligent and have given these issues a lot of thought...... So I don't think it's fair to say that 99.99% of what a doctor is going to tell you about vaccines is "propaganda". The MD (or DO) behind their name doesn't make them God but it also doesn't make them automatically stupid or sellouts.
You misrepresented what I said in my previous post. I said none of the above. What I did say is that you can be 99.99% sure the reading material they give you will be provax propoganda. I don't know how anyone can argue that those one-page descriptions are anything but. They don't give you accurate information on the disease prevalence, what the illness is like and almost no information on the dangers or safety of the vaccine. There's no way a parent can be fully informed and give "informed consent" from that one page. I'd love to hear that a pediatrician offered the package inserts, CDC statistics or suggested the reading of Stephanie Cave's book (which I consider provax, but better than nothing).
I think that to say pediatricians (which is not what you said, I'm just singling them out) are not about the money is naive. They run a business. They have mortgages, student loans, equipment loans all to pay and families to support and send to private school. So, while they may have gone into medicine because they care about helping people, they now have big bills to pay, often needing to shove in as many patients in a day as they can (one child every 10 minutes is what I've experienced), leaving them very little time to do research on anything. They have no choice but to rely on vaccine manufacturers, the AMA, the AAP, the CDC and medical equipment companies. If there's really something serious wrong with your child, they order tests, send you to a specialist or both. The average pediatrician has neither the time nor the expertise.
They are not all money-grubbing and most are very intelligent, but they are
"brainwashed". They are trained. Medicine is a religion. If you start to question part of it (like vaccines), then you have to start questioning other areas of medicine. Then, how can a doctor be condfident that their diagnosis and treatment is accurate? How dare they question those books and medical school professors and doctors they interned with who all know more than they and have been around longer? They have to believe. They can't afford to 2nd guess. It can cost lives and cost them their livelihoods.
I'm not angry about it or angry at doctors. It's not a conspiracy theory. It's just life and our society. It's just something I've come to accept.
