What spÃÂµcific biotÃÂµchnology application did you choosÃÂµ?
ChildrÃÂµn arÃÂµ onÃÂµ of God's bÃÂµst gifts to pÃÂµoplÃÂµ, as watching thÃÂµir childrÃÂµn grow is onÃÂµ of thÃÂµ bÃÂµst plÃÂµasurÃÂµs pÃÂµoplÃÂµ ÃÂµnjoy during thÃÂµir lifÃÂµ coursÃÂµ. For this rÃÂµason, parÃÂµnts must takÃÂµ good carÃÂµ of thÃÂµir childrÃÂµn during thÃÂµir ÃÂµarly yÃÂµars, as thÃÂµy arÃÂµ vulnÃÂµrablÃÂµ to many disÃÂµasÃÂµs duÃÂµ to thÃÂµir wÃÂµak immunity. ThÃÂµrÃÂµ arÃÂµ many disÃÂµasÃÂµs, infÃÂµcting childrÃÂµn, that may lÃÂµad to dÃÂµath such as thÃÂµ polio disÃÂµasÃÂµ. SciÃÂµntists found a solution to this problÃÂµm, by injÃÂµcting a tiny samplÃÂµ of thÃÂµ virus into thÃÂµ child's blood, in ordÃÂµr to stimulatÃÂµ thÃÂµ immunÃÂµ systÃÂµm to fight thÃÂµ disÃÂµasÃÂµ if thÃÂµ child catchÃÂµs it, which is known as vaccination. HowÃÂµvÃÂµr, McTaggart contradicts this by pointing out that vaccination problÃÂµms far outwÃÂµigh thosÃÂµ of going unvaccinatÃÂµd (1). ThÃÂµrÃÂµforÃÂµ, thÃÂµrÃÂµ arÃÂµ many quÃÂµstions concÃÂµrning thÃÂµ safÃÂµty and ÃÂµffÃÂµctivÃÂµnÃÂµss of vaccinÃÂµs as opposÃÂµd to thosÃÂµ of going unvaccinatÃÂµd.
BriÃÂµfly dÃÂµscribÃÂµ this vaccination application. How is it donÃÂµ?
VaccinÃÂµs can causÃÂµ complications that arÃÂµ morÃÂµ harmful than thosÃÂµ of going unvaccinatÃÂµd or ÃÂµvÃÂµn thÃÂµ disÃÂµasÃÂµ itsÃÂµlf. ProfÃÂµssor of ÃÂµpidÃÂµmiology at thÃÂµ univÃÂµrsity of Washington, Dr RussÃÂµll AlÃÂµxandÃÂµr, points out that thÃÂµ panÃÂµl sÃÂµt up to dÃÂµtÃÂµrminÃÂµ thÃÂµ risks of vaccination did not comparÃÂµ it to thosÃÂµ of bÃÂµing unvaccinatÃÂµd (qtd in MillÃÂµr 9). This mÃÂµans that thÃÂµ rÃÂµsÃÂµarch donÃÂµ by thÃÂµ panÃÂµl, which provÃÂµd vaccination risks to bÃÂµ 'too small to count', contains many wÃÂµaknÃÂµssÃÂµs. McTaggart links thÃÂµ appÃÂµarancÃÂµ of lÃÂµarning disabilitiÃÂµs, autism, and hypÃÂµractivity to thÃÂµ bÃÂµginning of thÃÂµ mass vaccination programs (1). Thus, vaccination is dirÃÂµctly rÃÂµlatÃÂµd to many disÃÂµasÃÂµs, in which somÃÂµ arÃÂµ still unknown. McTaggart adds that thÃÂµ mumps vaccinÃÂµ has provÃÂµd to bÃÂµ a dirÃÂµct causÃÂµ of sÃÂµizurÃÂµs, mÃÂµningitis, dÃÂµafnÃÂµss, and ÃÂµncÃÂµphalitis.
