VACCINE GUIDE BOOK TIPS FOR BEST PROTECTION OF YOUR CHILDREN Post navigation ← Previous post Next post → Comment (1) David Snider June 2, 2016 at 3:41 pm In the case of polio vaccine, whatever risk there is connected with the vaccine, it is probably worth that risk because the effects of the disease last a lifetime. Many of the other diseased leave little if any long term adverse effects. I was not even sick with chicken pox and I subsequently survived shingles with little long term consequences. Measles were miserable but I survived. There is something to be said for the apparent benefit of a child having to use his immune system to fight off “childhood diseases.” Why have problems with allergies increased so much over my lifetime? Is there a connection? Allergies are a long term pain in the neck. Childhood diseases are typically over and done with in a few weeks. Comments are closed.
