Something for you to think about the good and bad about childhood

Childhood illnesses are not very pleasant, they last a few weeks, can
feel miserable and very occasionally cause death.

Childhood illnesses mean that a mother or father are often committed
to give a demonstration of their love to their child. Childhood illnesses
force a parent to give time to their child, quality time. Childhood illnesses
teach us about compassion, by example. Childhood illnesses allow us
to ' know ' what to do and how to behave when someone is sick. 
Childhood illnesses can toughen people to other illnesses and create
the time and space in a child's life to reflect on how precious it is.
Childhood illnesses create a need for others, for shared help, and they
develop a community.( All of which improves and develop the immune
system long term)

When we produce these vaccines to protect children is it right to take
away the realities of life, the lessons of life,and  the little love that some 
would have had. Life is more than an answer in an injection and unless
those that develop and administer these injections understand all the 
complexities, they should leave well alone. Let children, be children,
with all of what life has to throw at them at the pace that nature wants
to go.

If there is any British doctors reading this remember you are working in a 
system which is FORCING this sort of primary care on mothers, and you
are allowing it to happen. You have no idea of the long term effects of these
vaccines, so what happened to common sense and caution? 
Primary care is caring for people, eye tests, hair checks, listening to 
mothers worries, discussing diet and giving counseling.
Who are the people who have spent years and years in a university learning,
the doctors or the politicians? Who are the ones who will be considered
at fault when the consequenses come out, the doctors or the politicians?
The doctors are going to be in their jobs long after the politicians have
gone, think about that!
Who is regulating the madness behind the medicine I wonder?
