Childhood Vaccination
« on: May 02, 2008, 10:06:43 PM »
Here is a very good article on the topic of vaccination.

Children are born with a natural immunity to certain infections. Antibodies pass through the mother's placenta to the fetus before birth, protecting the baby from infection. Breast-fed babies continue to receive antibodies from their mothers' breast milk. However, this natural immunity eventually wears off, usually within the first year of life.
