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!

The site you're looking for that's doctors who are anti-vax is American Academy of Physicians (or something very close.) The only way I've gotten to their site is through

Dr. Mercola is an anti-vax doc and a member of this group.
