Vaccines: a gentle conversation!

Vaccines: a gentle conversation turned real.

Are you ready to see if you are prepared enough to make a good decision regarding vaccines? Here is an opportunity to move past the emotion and see honestly where we are. I ask you to put down your “anti” or “pro” hat and just talk facts. Feel free to add any questions or any resources. It is time to come together and teach each other!

I have to say I am a little surprised by how low below the belt both sides of the “measles debate” is getting. I am also saddened by this “debate” for another very big reason: the inability to critically think beyond what is fed into you. Today, we call ourselves conscious beings, with the freedoms to make choices, but it seems like many are ready to give up these freedoms because they are too emotionally charged in being right. We are very much looking to displace anger and find blame, which is exactly what the man behind the curtain wants. It seems to me there are so many people ready to stand up and “fight” against the non-vaccinated or vaccinated children with out having more then a few blogs or opinion based articles to support their charge.

When we debate we get emotionally charged and your body ignites with all kinds of chemicals to prepare for a fight. You release intense levels of adrenaline; your ability to see things clearly or reason is lost. You lose the ability to listen to all sides, especially those that have an angle of information that we need to understand, because you are preparing your next attack.

So this is when I call for a truce and just ask both sides to look to the following questions. If you can answer them truthfully without looking up the answers then share your view with others so we can come together, isn’t our country already divided enough? When I hear words like “mandatory”, I just can’t believe that anyone would open that door, which is how I know we are loosing our way. This country is suppose to be about freedoms, are you so quick to give these “freedoms” away to pharmaceutical companies?

Since it seems that fear of death is causing this great debate, lets start there:

  1. What is the leading cause of death in the U.S?

Right away we can see that we are missing the mark on this debate. We should really be talking about the food pyramid and chemicals by Monsanto. We should be addressing why school lunches consider ketchup a vegetable, and how we are paving the way for the sickest country in the developed world. However, for the point of this gentle conversation we will move forward.

  1. What is the “germ theory?” Do you understand the difference between a vaccine and the “natural virus”? What is the difference between how your body responds to a virus vs. when it is injected directly into your body?
  2. When vaccines entered the scene, were (their natural counter part) “the natural virus” already mutating?
  3. Is it important for you to get sick? Does this impact human evolution?
  4. What are the ingredients in the MMR? What ingredients have not been studied that are in the MMR?
  5. Have you ever read a Package Insert from the MMR?
  6. What is “shedding” a live virus?
  7. Is there live virus in the MMR? Do you know the pharmaceutical company that produces and manufactures the MMR? How much have they earned and how much have they paid in vaccine injury?
  8. Have you spoken with a parent that believed in vaccines until their child was injured?
  9. Do you know the dosing schedule difference from 1988 and the schedule 2014? Has it changed and why?
  10. Have you ever heard of Thalidomide? Do you think there are other meds that may share a similar story?
  11. Do you know how many deaths occur from pharmaceutical drugs being taken as prescribed each year?
  12. Have you ever asked your doctor where he/she has gotten information about vaccines (after all they are human and this information isn’t deposited into their DNA)?
  13. Are you aware how pharmaceutical companies grow illness through marketing campaigns? How many countries allow pharmaceutical companies to market direct to consumer? (T.V Ads?)
