What is Your Cause? What Would it Be?

Have you ever thought about what your "cause" would be? We often see affluent people who don't have day jobs, generously giving of their time and resources to charitable causes. If you had all the time in the world to be an advocate for a people or issue, what would you do?

I would spend my time trying to change the American vaccination schedule. I know whenever I write about this, it makes *so* many people uncomfortable. I lose subscribers, I get rude comments and emails. But this fuels me even more. WHY are we as parents tolerating the fact that:

According to the National Survey of Children’s Health, one in 91 American children has an autism spectrum disorder. Thirty years ago, it was one in 2,500.

WHY does the AAP see it fit to pummel our childrens' delicate bodies with toxins when they are at their most vulnerable stages of development?

Did you know that:

American infants and children are recommended to receive 14 different vaccines, administered in a whopping 49 doses, all before age six. Forty-nine! Compare this to Japan, where children receive just six vaccines in 12 doses by age five. Or to the US just a generation ago—today’s kids get four times more vaccines than those born in the 1970s.

PLEASE, no matter where you stand on this issue- whether you give your child every shot the schedule recommends, or whether you question the current vaccination schedule, please read this VITAL and COMPELLING article on the topic. This should be a mandatory read for every parent before taking their baby home from the hospital.

Especially since Autism and environmental toxins are clearly linked -- this is no longer something we can pass off as genetic.
