<p>Was excited to see this on the front page of reddit yesterday and thought I would share!  The user Cattastic made a comment in reply to a post someone made called "<a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/Parenting/comments/1n9tme/after_6_years_im_finally_getting_my_son/" style="color:rgb(85,26,139);margin-bottom:1px;margin-right:.4em;padding:0px;" target="_blank">After 6 years, I'm finally getting my son vaccinated. All thanks to r/Parenting!</a>"  That went reddit viral yesterday :) </p>

<p>Heres a small part of the comment</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"<span style="font-size:13px;line-height:1.5em;">Before I had my child, I was anti-vaccine too. Then I had a stern conversation with an actual scientist, who actually understands how to examine evidence and approach new evidence with properly tuned critical thinking skills, and she changed my view in one conversation.</span></p>
<p style="margin-bottom:5px;margin-top:5px;">I am <em>all about</em> questioning the dogma and belief systems espoused by the established medical community, particularly in the United States (over-medicating, circumcision, cry-it-out to name a few), and I am <em>all about</em> being an informed consumer of healthcare!</p>
<p style="margin-bottom:5px;margin-top:5px;">It's funny because I am considered to be a pretty crunchy granola mom among my friends. You know, the organic, yoga, whole foods, vegetarian type.</p>
<p style="margin-bottom:5px;margin-top:5px;">But....science! Mother science! You can be an advocate for "natural" living and also leave room in your life for reason, intelligent thought, and appreciation of the miraculous advances in modern medicine." </p>
