Undecided on Vaccines? This Survey Might Change Your Mind

Until about a year ago, I was undecided in regards to the dangers of vaccines. My gut told me they were probably bad, but it was difficult to take a stand on the issue. The reason why was simple enough. When it comes to the news, I try to read a diverse set of opinions, many of which I’ve come to trust.

How do you come to a decision when both sides of the debate claim to hold all the answers, while adding that the other side consists of liars and special interests?

Ultimately, you have to listen to both sides, and do your own research. If someone gives you a statistic, don’t take it for face value. You’ve got to find the studies behind the statistic, and seek out the finer details. You have to use that big beautiful brain god gave you to find the truth.
