Current Issue: H1N1 Vaccine

Here is some good commentary from Midwifery Today:

"Historically, alternative preventative treatment has been utilized successfully in times of epidemic flu outbreak. Although there is an option to vaccinate oneself with this new H1N1 vaccine, I would argue that the current global situation warrants a more serious search for safe, non-invasive alternatives. The inherent risks of vaccinations can serve as a reminder for midwives to return to the basics, creating and maintaining a healthy immune system."

Author Jeramie Peacock describes some of the problematic ingredients in the H1N1 vaccine, as well as alternative approaches being taken in France and India.
