To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate?

As I'm sure many of you are aware, the recent cases of Measles in the UK has caused concern within the medical world as to why people are not vaccinating their children. Some parents are lashing out at the parents who are not vaccinating their kids, calling them 'bad parents'. But it has come to my attention that most of these people who are quick with their opinions on who is a bad parent or not, has never had a sick child.

If your eldest child had a vaccination and then got diagnosed with Autism, would you give your next child the vaccination? Most people say no, they wouldn't, for obvious reasons.

We're hearing today that peer reviewed trials have been done and there is 'not a shred of scientific evidence' to prove that the MMR (Measels Mumps Rubella) jab causes Autism or induces any other disease.

What I am about to say now is purely my own view on the situation. Let us imagine for a moment that these research trials were done and the scientists found evidence that yes, in fact the MMR does increase chances of autism, and the National Health Service in this country, along with medical bodies and governments around the world have let this happen, there would be international outcry. It could never happen. Even if there was scientific evidence, I don't think that they could ever come out and say what they had found because the repercussions would be huger than Thalidomide in the 1960's.

I accept I am sounding slightly like a tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist, but when it comes to health care, and the way our modern society believes health care should be, I am a conspiracy theorist and I believe wholly in what I say. Do you think that in 2013 when they can put men on the moon, play a Will.I.Am track from a satellite on Mars, and we can communicate instantly through computers and telephones, that there is no cure for cancer? I think there is a cure for cancer, but if they give it to everyone the pharmaceutical companies and therefore the governments stop making money. Let's be honest, whether you know it or not, we can find most of what we need for our health through natural sources including fresh fruit and vegetables and certain herbs but if they 'allowed' the uneducated sector of the pre-conditioned public to know this, no drugs would ever be sold. Why do the Royal Family use homeopathy and very rarely use conventional medication? I'm sure they are well enough informed....

Going back to the MMR, my personal belief is that a child of 1,2 or 3 years old has not yet built up a decent enough immune system to be able to accept the huge amounts of disease put into them during a vaccination. If that child has an underlying or dormant autoimmune disease such as Juvenile Arthritis, that vaccination will trigger it. It may be that yes, that disease was already lying dormant in that childs system, but it may never have needed to be triggered if that childs immune system was built up to a strong level with the right nutrition, not medication.

I know that there is no 'scientific based evidence' on this, but I also think there are reasons for that as I have mentioned above. We do know that in America, which has the highest rate of vaccinations in the youngest age, there are the most amount of autistic children. 1 in 88 children to be exact. Whereas in Norway, where they vaccinate in single vaccinations at older ages, they have the lowest rate of autism in children in the developed world. These statistics are enough for me and I don't need 'scientific based evidence' for that.

Parents who believe their children got autism through the MMR have reported things like, having a 4 year old child who talked and played and made eye contact, then had the MMR and within literally a week they stopped talking and playing and making any sort of eye contact.

To end, if you want to get your children vaccinated, how about thinking of going to a place that offers the single vaccinations and have them done a year or so apart so the immune system can process it? And perhaps it is worth thinking about doing it after you have spent sufficient time building up your childs immune system with things like infant probiotics and other nutritional goodness.

I think the main problem here is that the modern society is completely uneducated when it comes to healthcare. They believe what they are told to believe and that is it.

I know that this is a controversial subject, but I'd like to know what your thoughts are on it? Are you for vaccinations in one go? Do you think parents who don't give it to their children are bad parents? If so I'd like to know if you are educated in the health care system and if you have ever had a sick child and this is no judgement, I'd just like to know for myself. Or do you believe that your child got sick from the vaccinations? Please share your thoughts....
