Many people have heard so often the denials through mainstream media and ‘expert’ sources that vaccines don’t cause autism, so they assume anyone who refuses vaccines is ONLY worried about autism.
Most of those who refuse vaccines are concerned first and foremost about health and what life practices will best support and promote health.
The children in the USA receive the highest number of vaccines in the world. No other country gives their children the number and variety of vaccines that the CDC recommends for the children born in the USA. Yet children living in the USA today are among the most unhealthy generation ever in this country.
Children suffer from earache, ear infections, asthma, diabetes, cancer, allergies, other auto-immune disorders, obesity, seizures, brain encephalitis, tics, learning disabilities, developmental delays, brain damage (including autism) and even death (SIDS) at unprecedented rates. The US infant mortality rate is now 23rd in the world.
What could possibly be causing our children to be so sick? There are a variety of possibly explanations, but it would be foolish to categorically assume that the rate of vaccination of our children with multiple vaccines given at once and repeated multiple times before the age of two, is a totally safe procedure.
It’s not just autism those who refuse vaccines are worried about. It is the general state of health of our children and our nation. The autism rate is now 1:28 but the obesity rate is nearly 1:2. You can search to find out the statistics for many other childhood illnesses. We all know families devastated by childhood cancers.
