I checked on the parenting.com's site as I was surfing, and came across a video on their index page about 'childhood diseases on the rise'. Ugh! The video is so full of misinformation it isn't even funny. I could barely stand to watch it. No wonder people get their kids vaccinated with so called 'experts' pushing this propaganda. The big 'deadly' disease is whooping cough, aka pertussis. The video segment is really lame, they didn't have anyone to debate the 'expert' they had on. They're trying to blame parents who don't get their kids vaccinated for the big upswing in this 'epidemic'. Hmm, I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with world travel, or peoples immune systems that are bombarded by our modern toxic environment and unhealthy food, among other things.

Grr, just a mini rant. I can't believe people are so ignorant as to believe that unvaccinated kids are the reason. Never mind that vaccinated kids get it too, yet they don't seem to mention that in this 'news' video. Oh wait, NBC gets a lot of their money from drug companies. Oops, almost forgot that one, lol!

What's next, blaming the 'huge' upcoming 'epidemic' of the swine flu on parents that don't vaccinate?

Not watching it. I'm mad enough already just reading your description.

Grrrrr. I hope that people can begin seeing past stuff like this. The Pertusis vax is not even known to prevent transmission.

It is very tiresome!

If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson.
