Or do you think that WHO stats, based on third world countries, are reflective of the how people in the US live? Water with feces, lack of food, no shelter, no antibiotics, etc?
The only stats i posted that did not pertain directly to the united states were WHO which are worldwide stats but that does not diminsh the many millions of lives that are saved by a vaccine. Many millions every single year.

Yeah not at all like those health news websites that tell you you can cure polio with yarrow root or whatever. Science is real.

Vaccinate your kids people. It might just save their life.

Again, The Who uses the data of third world countries. Is your position that the US is a third world country?

The WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION does not limit their statistical analysis to only 3rd world countries unless they state that in the statistic. The statistic i posted is relevant to the global population

Normally that is the case. I keep catching it and the doctor has no idea why.

I had it twice as a child 7 & 8, and a couple years ago as an adult. All three times diagnosed by a doctor. Most adults get shingles and not chicken pox. She was scratching her head because I am the only patient she has ever had that had it multiple times. I had to go through immune system testing. I have some weirdness like major food allergies. I now have anaphylactic reactions to many foods from almost every major group and some fruits, veggies and meats. I also don’t heal properly. For instance if I get a scratch, it takes 3-4 months to heal. I have been on steroids for weeks to cure an infection in my chest and cough.

This thread is about homeschoolers in the USA.

Global stats of third world countries are irrelevant.

Please copy and paste my post where I told people: "Don't vaccinate your kids." Include the post number as well for quick review, thanks. Looking forward to seeing my post where I said that. That way, everyone can see you're not a liar.

PS. There is no post. I said no such thing. Poster is a liar.

In fact I always say: If you want a vaccine: GO get it. GO get 50. GO get 500. I really do not care. Just leave others who do not want them ALONE.

If your kid is vaccinated why worry? Dumb.
Thank you. I wish more would keep an open mind, take in all the information available. It's not making an informed, educated decision, remaining closed minded. A person will never learn or grow this way. It's not making the best decision for your family unless you're open to hearing all the information. Give the idea consideration. We have the same goal; what's best for kids. Why is working together, combining resources, figuring out a solution TOGETHER, so difficult? I think it can be done.......open minds first.

THERE IS NO MEDICINE FOR AUTISM.

There are some meds that help with various symptoms, but schools are not allowed to put pressure on parents to medicate even if the child shows symptoms. Teachers and school administrators are NOT doctors. Aside from that it is against federal law.

It is more likely that medication was being recommended for ADD or ADHD than for autism, btw, but that is illegal as well.
