Educating Parents About Vaccinations

Educating Parents About Vaccinations

You’ve explained the benefits. You’ve shared facts. You’ve appealed to emotions. But still, you can’t get some parents to vaccinate their children. So now when a parent questions the safety and effectiveness of immunization, you may simply move on. Don’t be that...

Real people. Real opinions. Real health stories.

You’ve probably heard of the “old Chinese curse” that Bobby Kennedy spoke about in a speech – “May you live in interesting times.” And right now is a very interesting time, especially when it comes to our nation’s health. Consider that:

  • Medical costs have become the #1 cause of personal bankruptcy in the USA
  • Obamacare vs Trumpcare: President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) split the country down the middle – loved and hated equally, dozens of books were written about it, but hardly anyone understands it. President Trump’s healthcare initiatives are just as controversial – but all that most citizens truly care about is how to get low cost insurance with a low deductible that covers their family’s needs
  • Organ transplants and advanced procedures like face and limb transplants – the stuff of sci-fi movies only 20 years ago – are now everyday events
  • Scientists have used CRISPR gene editing technology to create babies with boosted intelligence and disease immunity in the lab. What does it mean for future generations?
  • You can swab saliva from your cheek at home and post it off to get your DNA sequenced (the family secret horror stories about this on Reddit will make your toes curl up)
  • Obesity affects almost half the nation, and causes knock-on increases in heart disease, cancer and diabetes
  • Neonatal technology now allows babies born as early as 21 weeks to survive and grow to live normal lives
  • Marijuana is now legal as a medical product in 33 states (and DC), something that seemed unimaginable not long ago. And federal courts ruled in 2016 that the DEA is to respect states’ rights about this
  • Anti-vaccination scares are causing a rise in cervical cancer rates, and increasing deaths from measles and flu

Now something else you should know about that ‘”old Chinese curse…” it’s fake news. There’s no known record of the phrase in  history.  Ah, “fake news.”  That’s a term that warrants its own discussion, but we digress.

Misinformation is a serious problem when it comes to health and lifestyle advice. But a specific side is what you won’t see us pushing on this website.  Healthy Lifestyle is non-partisan, and in our stories we work to include all points of view and present all sides of the important issues, no matter how taboo or silly. We want our readers to see various sides of opinions and not just one side.

We want to hear your stories too!

The best online communities thrive on the input of their members. We care about real stories that show the everyday realities and choices Americans make about their healthcare. If you have a story to tell, we’d love to hear it – visit www.HealthyLifestyle.org/story/.
