Okay, so my son has had all his vaxes until 1 year, when I finally "got it" as to how dangerous vaxing could be. I have DH on board with most, he's still adamant about DTaP, but I'm working on it.
So here are my questions, I'm not meaning to debate, I'm just truly trying to understand. DH and I disagree on the severity of complications due to vax. I'm VERY conspiracy theroryist (I know thats not a word
) and he is not. Here are the concerns he brought to me during our discussion I couldnt answer. I'd love any insight you all can give.
So our first ped was very nice. While we were still vaxing, at one WBV we were talking about TV and how much he hated Baby Einstein. He was VERY pro bf, saying his wife BF their daughter until she was 7. During the visit he said "If I could do anything for the world, it would be to take ALL the tvs out of every house, and to make sure every child in the world was vaccinated." Now, he was a nice guy. I dont believe that he is vaccinating babies to make money, knowing they hurt/kill. As a matter of fact we've never been charged for vaccines. I guess what I'm saying is I dont believe he's part of some money hungry machine hurting or killing babies for his own benefit. Why then, does he think vaccines are so safe? Can't he see everything I see when doing the research?
The second thing my DH brings up is the people at the people who work at the pharma companies. He thinks these researchers spend years and years of their live to help people (Not ALL of them, but the majority). He thinks if they were truly after money they could sell all they know about how evil these corps. are and make WAY more money than what a researcher makes now. He thinks they truly think they're helping the world and saving lives.
And the final thing I cant answer is insurance companies. So if the insurance companies are just out to make money (which we both agree is true, no debate there
) then why do they want us to vax, and pay for it? Insurance companies do a lot of research to protect their investment. Wouldnt they come to the same conclusions we do about vaxing and therefore not pay for them? Why would insurance companies want us sicker and needing more of their services?
Thank you so much for helping me! I'm NOT a debater and I need a lot of time to think about things. I just dont have a logical mind, I'm more emotional. I'd really appreciate any help you could give me! Thank you!!
