It's come to my attention recently that people are no longer in touch with their instincts. I seriously think that within the last 150 years, there has been such a huge emphasis on becoming knowledgeable of subjects that people have focused so much on learning things and in turn have un-learned their human instincts. There's so much stuff in life that is just common sense but because it's not in a book taught in school that people really don't get it. Then, there's just stuff that never existed in the past and people take it as true and golden because someone of an elite educated status says so. I've noticed that people are just so quick to believe things doctors say as true. I've been thinking about this news story I saw about Gardasil recently in which girls who are getting the shot to prevent cervical cancer are getting seriously ill or dying. Doctors recently started pushing this new vaccine (I don't use the term candidly, it is new) without knowing what long term effects are or if there's enough significant studies of adverse reactions. And now what? Because doctors said the benefits outweigh the potential side effects (in which 5000 something girls in one study had negative reactions) girls are taking the vaccine and at their own risk. People need to stop listening to everything doctors tell them as truth and listen to their bodies. Not everyone gets it. Not everyone listens to their bodies or knows how to read their instincts. I guess what I'm trying to say is that people are animals. They are born with instincts. You don't need to read a book to learn how to survive or listen to a doctor or go to school. Look at all those people in indigenous tribes in the Amazon and Africa who don't have schools or doctors and are managing to live. Instead, we go and say they have all these disease and try to help them and send in food and medical aid and guess what? When we no longer are funded to do that, we pull out and years later their people die because they're not getting their booster shots or have no food. Sometimes we should just leave things be and listen to our guts. We know our bodies better than any doctors. I gave this pharmeceutical rep in the elevator at the doctors today a dirty look as if wondering what poison he was trying to have a doctor push on their unsuspecting victims.
