There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

 I tend to dislike  and argue against herd immunity from an ethical angle (or as she put is so well):

 

" the debate portrays a human life as a instrument in medicine that can/should be utilized in a societal defense against viruses/bacteria/disease. (the dismissal pertaining to an individual’s choice regarding a medical procedure)"

 

It was interesting for me to read some of the sceintific issues she had with the herd immunity concept.

Actually - thank you!  

 

Do you find your blog reaches a large audience (if thatis a goal) and is it a good way to get the word out about vaccine issues?

On average, I usually get 500 views a day or so on my blog - i first started writing it because I needed somewhere to sort out everything I was reading.

 

My hope is that it provides a good resource for parents looking to learn more about medical interventions, particularly vaccination.

Is there a topic you think would be good to write about about??
