It’s very easy for people to believe in things that might not be true, especially when you can find basically anything on the internet, and this is mostly the case for the anti-vaxxers.
The movement of people who refuse to vaccinate their children has grown, and headlines have been filled with such people lately.
There are measles outbreaks in a few U.S. states, and the World Health Organization listed the anti-vaxxers as one of the top 10 threats to global health in 2019.
However, we find it very interesting to hear how these people defend their irrational decisions not to vaccinate their children, and one of those people was Shanelle Cartwright, the wife of NRL player Bryce Cartwright.
Shanelle, who works as a personal trainer, said on a Q&A session on social media that she remembers her husband was very defensive when she first brought it up, and he even got angry with her for even suggesting that they shouldn’t vaccinate. However, he read a package insert and few pages of one of Dr. Suzanne Humphries books later, and he started to see vaccines with a different view. And now here they are…
As it turns out. Dr. Suzanne Humphries is an advocate for deterring people against vaccinations, and she says that it harms people’s immune systems.
According to the couple, they haven’t vaccinated themselves since becoming aware of that (against the flu, for example), and they say that they suffer from auto-immune disorders and allergies. They have also chosen not to give their baby nappies when it was born because it’s “unnatural”.
Shanelle said that they are going to try no nappies for their baby, and they will try elimination communication, especially if they have a girl.
She added that all mammals will instinctively not soil their nest and will eliminate where their mom tells them to, so just like you teach your kitten or puppy to go outside or in at the litter box, they will teach their baby the same.
They will also home school their kids if the schools can’t accept their children because they’re not vaccinated.
According to the World Health Organization, vaccine hesitancy threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases, and vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease.
