And wow, did I get an ear full!!! I was talking to another lady about natural living (eating organic, not vaxing, etc) and another lady who works for WHO on immunization policy decided to feed me a load of ****. Everything she said, I was literally <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> b/c its all not true. Its amazing to me how convincing they sound, I would believe them if I didnt know any better <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I think they take 'convincing classes' I just kindly told her that my kids are fine and that I must disagree with everything she said.......But whew!

yikes! It's hearing things like this that remind me...you never know who is listening so watch what you say in public. Not that you were doing anything wrong <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Just a reminder to me.

I would have loved that. I don't think I would've been as short & sweet as you were, though! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

That is something I have never gotten either, how they can be so convinced... even when they look at ALL the research. When they are given the information openly and objectively- makes you wonder about the idea of a "class" or something like that....

Ok, maybe I'm dense. What exactly did this woman from WHO, whom I'm assuming was somehow full of a certain stance of opinion, tell you? What was so wrong?

Well there was alot of things. In a nut shell, thirmosel is not toxic. aluminum is safe, vaccines have been proven "safe", they save lives, they took away measles, mumps, rubella, polio, small pox, etc. X number of people die each year b/c they are not vaxed from X disease. There are no reactions to vaxs other then a red spot at injection site. And that people like me, need to reconsider and vax myself and my children for the "greater good"....

They do. At least the pharm reps do, so I'm pretty sure WHO members do too. (I dated a pharm rep in med school and he told me they have to go through intense 2-5 day courses about the drugs they represent.)<br><br>
Of course, WHO is very pro-vax, so I am sure the info they give their workers is very pro-vax.
