    I agree with you except for the first 2. Everyone would be better educated and informed IF they took the time to really research fluoride and vaccines. Check into the way that fluoride became common in our water supplies. You just might be a tad bit outraged. It is similar to how Aspartame got approval. Vaccinating kids and adults carries a huge responsibility. As a a retired Medical Assistant one of my jobs was to give kids and adults their injections. I am still appalled how many times I handed out the CDC vac. sheets before administering the shots and the parents didn’t even bother to read them. They just blindly accepted that if the doctor recommended the shots then they must be OK and they were fine with 2, 4 and 6 month old babies receiving up to 5 shots per visit……I had alot more respect for the parents who either refused shots or asked that they receive only one or 2 per visit and customized the recommended vac. schedule by choosing specific immunizations rather then blindly getting all of them. Also many people are not aware that even the CDC says that they have no studies comparing vaccinated to UNvaccinated kids. So how can they make the safety and immunity claims that they do. For a balanced and informative vac. site I strongly recommend going to http://www.NVIC.org
