Vaccinate Your Child, Please!

"The truth is that vaccines are one of our greatest public health achievements, and one of the most important things you can do to protect your child."

Add to this list chlorinated water, flouride, cooked food...

If you don't like these, turn off your AC, internet, hot water...

Bad things happen, and sometimes people get hurt.  We don't need to be careless, but for the most part we live longer, healthier lives than at any time in human history.  Many of the diseases we do have result from too much of a good thing, insulin resistance stemming from the abundance of simple sugars in first world diets for example.  

I still refuse to get flu shots, but that's because (unlike most childhood vaccines) they tend to be only about 50% effective, and more than that because I'm a stubborn SOB.
