i appreciate your response...i truly dont think you can trust any "statistics" they all probably sway the way the original party wants them too....there is no concrete way to know...

As a parent you just need to read/study and come to a decision best for your family. I have done that...

But, I do give statistical studies credibility based on who funds them and peer review. I'm in psychology so I understand how clinical research can be very helpful and we (our society) base A LOT on them. However, there have been many clinically "sound" studies that have been proven wrong, biased, and invalid over the years that were initially accepted. There have also been plenty of medical procedures/practices that were initially introduced as safe only to be found unsafe and recalled. In addition, long term effects are almost impossible to truly know.

Again, to each family their own educated choice!

GOOD question!

Re: Give me good stories about vaccinations

we were a bit delayed with DD (she was pre-term at birth) but she is now fully vaxed and a totally normal healthy 3 year old with an insanely strong immune system. DS is 16 mos and we are starting his shots on monday. I have reservations because he has other issues- had severe eczema, is gluten intolerant etc. but I think *hope* we are at a stage where his immune system is strong enough to handle immunizations. I'm not anti-vax, but for DS I felt his system was too compromised before to bombard him with anything, be it vaxing or an illness. Fingers crossed I have a good story to come back with!

And THAT is absolutely ridiculous, misinformed and fear based.
Then there is the mamas who do their research and make an informed decision. They the chose not to vaccinate and get annoyed every time the doctor mentions Jenny Mccarthy and Jim Carey assuming the decision was based on something said by a celebrity!

I agree that people need to do their own investigation into what is best for their child. For some people that is as simple as talking with their pediatrician. What I don't understand is offering posts like that Facebook post to support a position. IMHO when people utilize posts like that one, it does nothing to help inform others. If there is good information out there for people to read, then I would offer the names of those books or links to those sites.
