I have never seen this mag before but found it today in a church I was in and overall it was nice (it's a Christian magazine and the only Christian parenting magazine I have ever seen so they NEED good, factual info-PLEASE WRITE WITH ALL THE AMMO YOU HAVE BASED ON SOME GOOD RESEARCH AND ANY ONLINE ARTICLES THEY CAN GO TO).
Had a circ article that wasn't pro or against, but really ended with a 'circ is medically unnecc.' slant so that was good.
But, their vaccine article on pages40-41 is horrendous (sp?), here's a quote:
"Common Vaccine Myths"
"A mercury-containing preservative (thimerosal) contained in many vaccines harms children" (WHAT?????)
"Children get too many shots (Uhhhh, YES THEY DO!)
Also under another section:
"All recommended vaccines are safe"
They also mention the CDC and AMA, APA as references, what about the medical doctors who are against vaccines? I know there's a site out there but I can't find it.
Anyway, here is the site to see and here is the e-mail to write them. I am not the worlds most fluent writer, please anyone-can you spend a few moments and drop them a line? Remember, this article is based on just a few peoples opinions, based on AMA/APA and CDC info, they do NOT speak for all Christians as all my buddies are very much into the non-vaccine route!
Thanks so much! www.lifeway.com
