V is for Vaccination (and Victory)

By Mark Antony Rossi

I took my sons to get their flu vaccination in early October. Some years the shipment from the manufacturer arrives early and we get the shot in late September. My wife and I are committed adherents to preventive powers of vaccinations. I’ve seen more than enough studies to be convinced they are overwhelmingly safe mechanisms to boost the health of society.

There are a vocal minority in the world community who believe otherwise. Part of this belief is based on a fraudulent study by a disgraced scientist who claimed Autism was directly caused by mercury and other various ingredients in vaccines. And even after two dozen exhaustive studies from a number of countries conclusively shown no connection the insidious rumor campaign turned into a public debate.

In America, naturally we allow uneducated celebrities to speak about subjects none of them can possibly understand including vaccinations. One in particular claimed her son has Autism due to vaccination and wrote a book about it, made a bunch of money and then a few years claimed a vegan diet reversed her kid’s genetic condition.

This irresponsible idiot has done nothing to retract her former book, statements or even public appearances. People following dangerous advice should be personally responsible for their decisions but what do we do when lunacy directly impacts children. We have had spikes of childhood diseases in various parts of the country. This is no coincidence.

Modern medicine if ignored by trendy twits leave innocent people vulnerable to unnecessary disease and death. Nature unlike humanity obeys no ideology other than its programmed path to pollinate, produce or poison its hosts. Only respect and vigilance can insure our continued presence on a planet grown tired of reasonable courses of action.
