Vaxes and The Greater Good

Vaccines are one of the very few topics I have refused to even consider writing about on Our Messy Messy Life.

Regarding childhood vaccinations, all I know for certain is that I don't know enough to accurately and eloquently state my opinions.

That said, I was very excited to watch The Greater Good, a documentary about the history, government oversight and the research side today's common vaccines.  The website currently says it is available for free through November 5 but it is still playing today on November 6 so I suggest you go ahead and find time within the next few days to watch this 1.5 hour long documentary.

Are you going to watch this movie?
Have you already seen it?

I thought it was probably the best vaccine resource (that covered both sides) that I've ever seen. I have immersed myself in vax research since I was pregnant with my first over 6 years ago, initially to make my decision (which ended up being completely opposite of my medically-minded tendencies), and since then, to confirm my decision (my continual research natural confirms it, but I keep up to date on everything because we are totally open to changing things if we feel led to do so...just has never happened that way yet!).

It was so good that I purchased it to own. :)

Yep, my thoughts are spot on with JoyFilled. I thought it was one of the best I've seen. I too, have researched for the past 5 years beginning when I was pregnant with Tripp and continually to stay "up" on the data and to ever confirm our decisions. I've never once felt like or read any data to make me think we made the wrong decisions.

I was wondering if you watched it and your thoughts!
