I just read a very interesting article at http://date-dabitur.com/?p=329 . The article is about vaccines, and specifically how the HPV vaccine (that is supposed to be required for girls age 11-12 in some states) has not even been tested on this age group… and who wants their child to be a guinea pig anyway?!?
I have been researching for more than a year now about vaccines and the pros/cons that are associated with each one (not to mention ethical issues like the ones raised in the above article). I haven’t had a chance to review all of the links in this article but it looks like some pretty good info!
I am not looking for a debate on the vaccination issue, just wanted to pass this info on to other parents who are concerned about the health of their child and who choose to make informed decisions instead of just going along with what ‘they’ (whoever ‘they’ are) tell us to do. Of course, for us, the issue with this particular vaccine (the HPV) is not about health but about morality but I still like to research these matters carefully since they do affect so many in our country.
Update: These are links (from the article above) that you don’t want to miss:
