Vaccines – Internet Perspective

Vaccines are a hot topic, almost a little too hot to handle. Some people I’ve talked to are certain vaccines are not just unnecessary but harmful. Others say that not only are vaccines necessary but EVERYBODY should be vaccinated without a choice.

These perspectives seem a little extreme. For no better reason than curiosity, I’m going to see what a random selection of websites on the topic might yield and summarize the results.

There was a lot of reading on this one but I think I have a reasonably broad layout of both arguments below.

The results of my studies into vaccines online are a bit difficult to digest, unfortunately. There is a relatively balanced pros and cons list here with maybe more redundancy on the pros but – the pros being preventative¬† measures to ensure the possibility of good health and the cons being the potential to be harming people more so than helping them… It’s anybody’s call and only the individual can decide if so many negative reports are just an indication that half the planet is suddenly nuts and suffering from paranoid delusion or if people really are having problems. Really though, I didn’t see a lot of negative reports in this round.

As with other posts, the intention of my putting this information here is as a food for thought offering and not a suggestion to side one way or another.
