Making critical decisions can be brutally tormenting when it comes to one’s health. We as humans do not like to decide health issues for ourselves. We would rather have an expert, like a doctor, tell us what is best for one and what will go into one’s body whether it be medicines, foods, herbs, chemicals, or vaccinations. If one is a parent it is more difficult to make decisions for a loved one’s health than their own. No one intentionally wants their loved ones to suffer, or be chronically ill, but what doctors don’t tell is that they are not allowed to give any information to one that doesn’t come from the American Medical Association.
Vaccinations are supposed to protect humans from deadly viruses and help our immune system fight the bacteria’s off, but vaccines can also be deadly from the ingredients used and can actually lower our immune system. All medicine is not one hundred percent safe for humans. Since the time vaccinations have been given, over one hundred years ago, several have been recalled due to severe reactions or death to thousands of innocent people, including young children and infants. Vaccines have dangerous ingredients, deter what the immune system is supposed to do on its own, are given too frequently and have many serious side effects.
In the United States, vaccinations are given as soon as a child is born. The vaccine schedule for the United States has doubled since the 1970’s. A Child will be given twenty-six shots by six months old if the parent follows the vaccination schedule. “Currently, the majority of American children are given 33 doses of 10 different vaccines by the time they reach age five” (Blevins 99). A Medical theory for vaccinations is that one’s child is exposed to weakened versions of diseases or bacteria and he/she will produce antibodies to that disease and become immune, so that he/she will never catch the illness.
The way medical practitioners think about vaccinating against diseases is
