    Dad did a study on it years ago. It can sit dormant in your body for decades after the primary measles infection. In laymans terms, your brain melts in your head. There is no cure.

    When I was small, mum didn't really believe in vaccinations. She thought a lot of childhood diseases were pretty harmless. ?We may have had something, but certainly not everything??? My brother and I got measles when I was 4 and he was 2. I can still remember how sick I was. Mum was horrified at how sick we got and marched off to get fully vaccinated. I can still remember lining up go get the needles. Dad was involved in some sort of research into SSPE and saw a teen with SSPE when I was about 10/11. I can vividly remember eating dinner with him telling us about the patient he had seen and how I breathed a sigh of relief when I turned 30 thinking that I was out of the 'danger zone' for getting it.
    That is frightening. I had no idea.

    As to selfish, not all anti vaxxers are the same. Sorry, but the ones who plainly say they are quite comfortable piggy backing are behaving in a very selfish way. I know that isn't what all anti vaxxer's feel, of course a lot of them aren't behaving in a selfish way.
    I did have a flick through threads until 2011 (not that far back I know but there are lots of threads and I've had a busy day), didnt see one person calling someone else selfish.

    I'd never go to a 3rd world country myself let alone with my children regardless of if they were vaccinated or not.

    I'm sorry, but you must be looking in the wrong place. I have been told that I did not try hard enough to feed my babies because I didn't try and source donor milk after I couldn't breastfeed due to a medical condition, had a c/section, a uterus infection, newborn twins and no car. Please, do not try and pretend like that kind of thing doesn't happen - you'd have to be living under a rock not to see it.

    Answering the question about taking children to a developing country... Having spent a month in a developing country doing humanitarian work I wouldn't take a child there. And it's not because of potential diseases. It's because of a lack of sanitation, medical facilities and lower personal safety. Vaccination is a long way down my list of reasons.

    I'm saying I've never seen someone be called selfish for not breastfeeding here on BH.

    _______
    I don't believe it's selfish to consider the risks accociated with vaccinations and choose not to use them for your family. You all might not agree with me and that's fine but I don't think it's polite to post comments declaring other members selfish.

    People seem to be getting a bit upset about it so I'll leave it here I think.

    I don't think it is 'polite' to increase the risk of health complications of others.

    Emily and HOF, you're being evasive. If you were forced to live somewhere where measles was rife, would you choose to vaccinate?

    Out of interest, did you get recommended vaccinations prior to your travel there?

    But I guess that's my point. It *is* selfish by definition. I don't think politeness comes into it.

    When my son was born, actually when I was pregnant, we asked MIL to immunize against whooping cough. She wouldn't do it because she doesn't believe in putting chemicals in your body. I didn't want to let her see/hold him as a newborn because of this. She told me I was being selfish. I agreed. I was! I was putting myself (or my infant) ahead of her need to see him. My/our perceived needs came first. That's what selfish means. Just own it, is what I'm saying, I guess...
