Asking for a friend... 
 
Does anyone know of a no-vax or selective/delayed vax friendly pediatrician in the Kaiser network? We're in Antioch.

Hi,
 
I've been a non-vaxing parent for 5.5 years now, so I'm usually pretty good at letting pro-vax comments go. But there's one that always gets to me: The unvaccinated are a threat to all...

Diphteria is no longer an issue in the United States, or most of the world. It's big in Russia, apparently. It's spread through contaminated water and close living conditions. I found out...

California allows a philosophical objection to vaccines. Even so, that only matters when the child goes to school. The state cannot withhold benefits from you for not following the...

I did A LOT of research on tetanus. Rust has nothing to do with it. Tetanus bacteria are found in the soil and in feces. They are anaerobic, so they cannot live in the presence of air. If a nail is...
