Heres something that I saw on one of the evening news shows that I watch from time to time. I mainly watch either the national/international ones as opposed to the local ones. Its called BBC America and the others that watch are BBC Newsday and ABC World News Tonight.
At the same time my opinions on this and beyond are one of my blog entries regarding of this. That I did well over couple/few years back. Of course to me its still relevant today as it was when I 1st did.
Vaccinations, flu shot, circumcision, other elective procedures
Basically, what I mean by elective procedures are ear piercing and etc along those lines. At the same time I’m focusing on both sexes, all ages, etc as opposed to one sex, age, etc.
What do you think about this and beyond?
I for one I’m in the middle of the road on this, but whom leans more towards to alternative medicine/lifestyles as opposed to mainstream medicine/lifestyles. Because I found to there more risk involve in the mainstream medicine/lifestyles vs alternative medicine/lifestyles
I think there is some debate over many things in medicine, and it is of little consequence, but with vaccines, if a number of people do not use them it is of consequence to all. A major example is Smallpox! It would not have been eradicated without mass vaccination.
As one who prefers to live in avoidance of medicines and seldom take pills I can see the point, but there is a line at which I would use them.
Jen and the rest of you,
Hmm beyond all interesting, in the middle of the road, okay, understandable, and WOW.
In which I’m all for with certain one/s vs select/all of them. For me its mainly Polio one more then the others. Basically, have more knowledge on that particular one and along with polio itself. At the same time really haven’t done any serious learning and researching on all of this. Since its a massive undertaking. This also goes for beyond everything else in medicine and life.

Vaccinations protect everyone from disease and illness. I can understand alternative approaches to medicine, but if a medication or vaccine works that is what must be used. I use alternative medicine from Holland & Barrett, so can understand this approach very well. The holistic approach to medicine is popular for a reason. I think it is possible to use a mixture of new and traditional and alternative, if that is what a person thinks will work for them. That’s my penny’s worth!
KitKatKitty, everyone else, and including one whom are off of here as well,
Yeah to that, but still I’m in beyond the middle of road on this and everything else both in medicine and outside of medicine.
I for one/life for me still don’t understand why everyone on both on and off of here. Are still for mainstream/conventional as opposed to being traditional/alternative/complementary. Well, at least being open to it. Even through do understand fear factor of it, but whats the point being in fear of it. When it has been/worked since beginning time until modern medicine came along. I mean its still works. In which I really unsure exactly when modern part came around.
Back yet again with yet even more information resources for you. In which I originally did in a separate intro post/thread in the category related discussion area, but in pregnancy & parenting sub area of course. In which I mostly have either changed/taken stuff out from the original one.
So, anyway its about a book called The Vaccine – Friendly Plan: Dr, Paul’s Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health from Pregnancy Through Child’s Teen Years, Drs. Paul Thomas, M.D., and Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D.
Heres both of Drs. Thomas and Margulis’ official websites and well its the book part of it of course.
Think thats it for now.
Thank you, again, in advance.
