The Vaccine Debate Like Never Before

One of the greatest truth documentaries of the decade.

The Greater Good is free to watch in full until Wednesday, November 9th because it’s’s Vaccine Awareness Week.

The Greater Good looks behind the fear, hype and politics that polarize people into emotionally charged pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine camps with no room for middle ground. Exploring the cultural intersection where parenting meets modern medicine and individual rights collide with politics, this character driven documentary weaves together the stories of three families whose lives have been forever changed by vaccination. By reframing the vaccine debate and offering, for the first time, the opportunity to have a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program in America today, The Greater Good challenges viewers to think again.

My mom and I watched it and I would recommend every person in the USA watch this, especially parents. It is a bit hard to sit through at times, but worth it.

  1. Thanks for this. I don't agree with Mercola 100% on everything but there are many scary things about vaccines! We have done some (delayed schedule) but not all. And not the flu vax at ALL!

    Sooo glad I got to watch this! Very eye-opening. I've forwarded it on to many.

    Thanks Cindy! I love the direction they are going in with screening children for sensitivities and making vaccines safer.

    Spread it around!

    Thank you for your feedback. I am going to quote my girlfriend Melina because her response to the film is very touche!

    "I watched that movie today. It was pretty good. I think it's sort of like
    the business of being born (that movie by ricki lake) in that it's very
    emotionally charged and it's goal is to get you to agree. I think the
    main points are pretty clear: Vaccines are not 100 percent safe, The FDA
    should not be allowed to fast track untested vaccines, the state should
    not have to mandate that people get vaccinated.
    I'm down with that. But I still think we can't forget that Polio is
    horrendous and herd immunity is very important. I think the Hep B
    vaccine is unnecessary. I also think the Flu vaccine does more harm than
    good (I've never had it). But I think I will vaccinate my kids against
    some of the other stuff.

    I like where their going with researching different children's sensitivity to vaccines and their
    ability to detoxify the heavy metals. I think that's probably a better
    direction to go in. To polarize and say that vaccines are 100 percent bad
    would be really stupid. But to conclude that they are indeed unsafe for
    certain children? Well, I can get on board with that. I'm not saying
    that they don't have long-term effects for everyone. I'll bet my
    sensory/information processing problems are related to heavy drugs that
    were put in my system at the wrong time. I mean, look at babies born
    addicted to crack: They can have long-term probs even after they are
    detoxed. But I digress. Really, I think if anyone expects to provide
    their kids with a 100 percent toxin/risk free life, they're living in a
