I was thinking about this the other day when this realization came to me when you look at the animal kingdom. You see lions roaming the plains healthy and hearty. You see antelopes and gazelles bounding across the tundra fit and hardy. You see chimpanzees and monkeys swinging through the trees without a care in the world. And you see dolphins and porpoises gliding majestically through the water at play. For the most part, the animal kingdom is overflowing with examples of health; with one noticeable exception. Human beings.
Why is that you never see lines of animals waiting to get shots or immunizations for diseases. Why is it that human beings are the only species of animals that require immunizations in order to be able to live. What is it about our environment, our living situation or lifestyles that require us to get shot full of dead or severely weekend microorganisms in order to be able to live to ripe old age. It really is curious. When you look at the number of shots that we have to get ranging from polio vaccines to tuberculosis vaccines, to flu shots to HIV AIDS shots; the number is staggering in terms of what we have to do to prevent disease from taking us over and wiping us out. This isn’t the case in any other species of animal. Something about how we live requires us to go out and get shots or die. Is the human immune system so inherently weak? Or is something else going on here?
It really does raise lots of questions about the nature of the foods that we eat or the beverages that we drink and the impact of those things on our bodies. Or maybe it’s the living condition that we find ourselves in, those being so far removed from our original primitive dwellings in nature. I mean, the truth is obvious when we don’t get those shots; at best we get very sick and at worst we die. Clearly getting the shots isn’t optional, but more importantly why is that the case.
I’m just saying…
