Not all diseases are created equal.
What I mean is that, for our purposes, we can separate diseases into two very distinct camps:
Childhood illnesses and malevolent infectious diseases.
In chp1 I mentioned that immunisation and vaccination are two different things, and this is an important distinction.
Those that push vaccinations do so with the claim that without them we are in danger of infectious diseases. In other words, a vaccination will prevent infection.
But this is a lie.
We need to separate childhood illnesses and infectious diseases before we can properly consider the issue of immunisation. Immunisation is the goal.
- Childhood illnesses, such as measles and chickenpox, are infections that do not need our intervention to come to an end.
- Malevolent diseases require our intervention.
No medication can end these illnesses.
Malevolent diseases need our intervention to end, and obviously without that intervention the person could have serious complications or die.
- Childhood illnesses, once had, provide life-long immunity to that disease. IMMUNITY.
- Malevolent diseases do not create immunity.
This is why immunisation via vaccination is a lie.
A vaccination for measles, for example, can cause symptoms after the vaccination (so that another child can catch the illness from the vaccinated child!), and the vaccinated child can contract the disease in the future. If the person gets the disease later they have a higher chance of complications.
Malevolent diseases can be caught over and over again. Vaccines provide some protection, not immunity.
Good nutrition and hygiene can provide much protection against some of these diseases. (which is why they are more prevalent in underdeveloped countries)
|Childhood Illnesses||Malevolent Diseases|
Some people get all childhood illnesses, others get only some of them, and people that already had them are immune.
Nutrition, including breastmilk, does not make a person immune. But good nutrition helps treatment. Only contracting the illness makes you properly immune.
Childhood illnesses, when treated properly, do not need to be feared in the way we have been conditioned to fear them.
Malevolent infectious diseases are worthy of extreme caution and even a healthy and informed fear.
For parents who find this whole issue too overwhelming, and want to accept some vaccinations, this information alone can help you decide which vaccinations to choose - ones for malevolent infectious diseases, not the ones for childhood illnesses.
