Something Every Parent Must Consider

parenting Jul 22, 2023

At the risk of upsetting a few people, I feel because of information I learned from three sources that all came to me on the same day this last week (I don't think that was by chance?), that I must bring up a question for consideration that is pertinent to all moms...

Is it in my child's best interest to be vaccinated with the recommended childhood vaccines?

If I had it to do all over again, I would take the time to find the answer to that question by doing more research (how much did I do when my children were young? None) before allowing my children to receive the battery of recommended vaccines at each age and stage.

I simply want to inform you of resources I have recently seen that might aid you in your research:

  •  Turtles all the Way Down: Vaccine Science and Myth is a book has been called a one-stop shop for understanding the science behind the vaccine debate. Reviewers appreciated it regardless of their stance. The book touts 1,240 references of peer-reviewed scientific papers, book chapters, and publications from health authorities such as the CDC, FDA, and WHO.
  • Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) - This organization helps inform parents of important information about vaccines. Their website shares their mission: "Our goal is to put the power of scientifically researched health information in your hands and to be bold and transparent in doing so, thereby enabling your medical decisions to come from tangible understanding...."
  • A recent Epoch Times interview of the founder of ICAN, Del Bigtree: The Shocking Truth About Childhood Vaccines. In this interview Del Bigtree reveals that there are actually a lot of unknowns about vaccines:
  • Why have none of the 16 required childhood vaccinations gone through proper placebo trials before being approved?
  • If a proper trial has not been allowed on any of the recommended childhood vaccinations, can anyone say with certainty that they are safe?
  • If the reason that studies and trials are not being done on vaccines is for fear that in the "questioning"  of vaccines, the public will lose their confidence and faith in vaccines, should that in and of itself give reason for pause?


  • Remedy Docu-series, airing for free starting July 26 will cover the history of vaccines, including smallpox and polio, and the scientific support (or lack thereof) for the current CDC vaccine schedule. If you are interested in this deep dive look, you may sign up here.


Please know that my greatest desire related to this is the health of your child.

I wish someone had encouraged me to take the time to research in order to make an informed decision for my children's best health.

Here's to your children's health!
