My Grandma Refused To Vaccinate Her Children

Good Morning America reported that there is a measles outbreak. They said 95% of those getting measles were not vaccinated. {This was on the news several months ago when I wrote this post. Apparently it wasn't that big of a deal since it wasn't on the news for long. Another example of how the media greatly exaggerates things.} I tried finding the side effects of measles verses the side effects of the measles vaccination and it is difficult to find the side effects of the vaccination. Almost all of the websites are written by the drug companies, the government or by doctors, all who have a vested interest in the vaccinations. I have read that if you want to find the true side effects of vaccinations, you must read the insert that comes in the box of the vaccination, which most parents never see. Most would think twice if they knew the true, long-term side effects of all those vaccinations they are putting into their children. Besides, they want to give children 49 vaccinations before they are 6 years old!

Dr. Mercola wrote about the dangers of the measles vaccination HERE. The Healthy Home Economist wrote about many people being afraid of vaccinating their children HERE. This is what the CDC said are the symptoms of measles ~

A typical case of measles begins with mild to moderate fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, and sore throat. Two or three days after symptoms begin, tiny white spots (Koplik’s spots) may appear inside the mouth.
Three to five days after the start of symptoms, a red or reddish-brown rash appears. The rash usually begins on a person’s face at the hairline and spreads downward to the neck, trunk, arms, legs, and feet. When the rash appears, a person’s fever may spike to more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit. After a few days, the fever subsides and the rash fades. {A fever is a body's way of fighting disease.}
All of my children had chickenpox. Yes, they were miserable for several days, but they survived. They have all had the flu and gotten through it. I believe we do what doctors tell us to do way too easily without researching exactly what is in the vaccinations and what the long term effects are. Now adults are getting chickenpox which is WAY more dangerous than children getting it and when you get a certain strain of the flu, chickenpox or measles, your body develops a natural immunity to them so you will never get them again.
My grandmother had seven children. She was born in the very early 1900s way before any studies on vaccinations had been done. She birthed all of her children in her home and didn't vaccinate any of them. She didn't want to put that "poison" into their bodies as she put it. She raised them on a lot of fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, and eggs. She always had a large garden. Only one of the seven got cancer and that was the oldest son. He smoked and got lung cancer. All five daughters are in their 80s and early 90s and have done amazingly good health wise.
I am not telling you to vaccinate or not to vaccinate but do a lot of research before you put any vaccine or drug into your body. All drugs and vaccinations have side effects. Most healthy bodies can fight most diseases. I believe a healthy immune system is the key to good health. There is just too much autism, autoimmune diseases, and cancer to not make us leery of adding one more toxin to our children's bodies. HERE is another good article about our children's immune systems being overloaded with vaccinations. Be a wise parent and make decisions carefully, prayerfully, and with a lot of research.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, 
who gives generously to all without reproach, 
and it will be given him.
James 1:5

***I realize a lot of you vaccinate your children. It is your choice to do so but allow those who choose not to vaccinate to do so without condemning or judging them. I tend to go against the flow with much of what society does, as you have noticed. I want to thoroughly research EVERYTHING before jumping headlong with what "everyone else is doing."
