Preventable diseases that were almost eliminated are making a comeback, thanks to the anti-vaxxers in this country. According to the CDC, there have already been 314 cases of measles reported in the United States this year.
In 2000 America declared measles “eliminated”. Now cases are on the rise again https://t.co/yR6DNe4S0Z

And since nothing seems to sway anti-vaxxers—not doctors, not science, not the thought of their kids’ safety or the safety of other kids who really can’t get vaccinated—maybe it’s time to look at all the benefits of not vaccinating kids.
Think of all the good things that your kid will miss out on if you get him or her vaccinated!
1. I bet your kid would be excited to wear this fun thing.

What are vaccines good for, anyway??
People say “well what did people do before vaccines/antibiotics/pasteurisation?” as if that’s an argument for going natural.
They died, Carol. A lot of people died.
