For many parents the pressure to vaccinate is enormous. Even in the face of the clear dangers of most vaccinations, the consequences of avoiding it seem great. Parents whose only option is to send their child to public school are coerced into vaccinating their children by the school.
The social pressures are also substantial. The average person simply believes whatever they hear on television, and mainstream news is in the pocket of big pharma. We could go on, but the fact is that taking a sober look at the facts about vaccines and attempting to opt out can be a frightening proposition. Often times the social, legal, and professional consequences are overwhelming.
With all that in mind, suppose we told you that some of the most literate scientific minds in medicine, scientists working for the government, do not vaccinate their children.
Consider the community of Los Alamos, New Mexico, one of the nation’s most scientifically astute communities where many heads of household work for the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Los Alamos Labs. These two organizations employ hundreds of parents. They are major hubs of research on the science and technology of vaccinations. Many of their leading researchers and employees avoid vaccinating their children.
Meanwhile, soccer moms across the country who only know what Anderson Cooper tells them about vaccines are violently sure that “anti-vaxxers” are going to trigger some kind of plague.
But these New Mexico families are not the only ones skipping vaccines. Top doctors and scientists across the country are doing the same. Many of them hold the opinion that vaccines are dangerous, but the masses should take them to protect the population. Like Hollywood liberals who would deny gun rights to citizen, but insist on being protected by armed guards- they seem to look on the rest of us as animals that must be controlled and contained. Some are less hypocritical.
What do they know that the rest of us don’t? If you visit Health Scams Exposed regularly, not much. Most people know that mercury is a heavy metal stabilizer used in vaccines and that it is the most potent neurotoxin on Earth. Most people know that the MMR vaccine is too much too soon and that the link between the triple vaccine and autism is especially strong.
Scientific professionals who know the dangers of vaccines may know more than most about the dangers of these drugs. But the truth about mercury alone should be enough. For many, it is- but for most- one or two facts from an “alternative” news source is not enough.
No, it isn’t because they know more than you that they excuse their children from being vaccinated. It’s because they have the social support of their peers.
You have to understand that humans are not rational beings. We are capable of being rational for short periods of time. But most of our decisions are based on emotion and excused by reason. People working in the sciences are no different. The difference is they have more people around them who, in private- maybe at a backyard barbecue- will agree with them that vaccines are dangerous.
The average anti-vaxxer, by contrast, is all alone. You go online and read a handful of studies explaining that the Rotavirus vaccine “Rotateq” is made with two strains of deadly circovirus. Or you encounter evidence that the CDC lied when it said they took all of the mercury out of vaccines for children. You see these facts and you are a lone voice- fearful of vaccines and surrounded by irrational parents who only watch mainstream news.
Suppose you were a lab tech who encountered these facts and had three friends who did as well. You would feel differently. You would be more confident in protecting your children from vaccines. That is the difference between you and the elite anti-vaxxer. Social support.
But it isn’t just lab techs either. Los Alamos schools have noticed high rates of parents refusing to vaccinate their own children. Top scientists from these New Mexico labs are keeping their children home on vaccination day. That are immune to the lies and the fear peddling of CNN and school superintendents.
The lesson here is, if you understand the dangers of vaccines, you should seek social support. Know that human minds are not equipped to function in isolation. Especially if you are facing pressure to let your children be poisoned- find friends who know what you know. It is the best way to protect your children.
