Re Growing Tree - were you aware of this incident a few years ago? Other than 9/11, I can't recall seeing that level of emergency workers out in full force for those kids...

As a parent with a child attending at the time, I think the school dealt with the issue appropriately. Parents were notified, the teacher who was responsible was fired immediately and the school implemented SOPs to address this and prevent it and similar situations from happening in the future.

The Iron Lung wasn't invented to treat polio. It was invented to help people who suffered paralysis from polio breathe.

1) In 1987, Congress made it impossible to sue the Pharma companies related to vaccine injuries. That's when Pharma realized that they could make huge profits from vaccines because there is no longer any downside risk from costly lawsuits. As a result, the number of vaccines kids receive today has gone from 16 shots thru age 18 to 67 shots thru age 18 from 1987 to 2017. Coincidence? I think not.

2) In addition, vaccines are not subjected to the same testing/scrutiny as medicine. They do not have use double placebo testing and the length of time to get a vaccine to the market is a lot shorter. As a result, vaccines require less R&D expense and thus another reason why vaccines are very profitable to pharma companies

3) Two wrongs don't make a right. In life, that's true. In science, that's true. Do you know the ingredients in a typical vaccine? Most vaccines contain aluminum, thimerosal (aka mercury) and glyphosate (aka the carcinogetic toxin found in Monsanto's Round Up). These are toxins folks and it is being injected straight into the blood stream. There is a possibility of it getting into the brain and cause a lot of havoc. And don't get me started about "trace amounts". It's going straight into the blood stream. Your body has no defense to that.

4) 75 cents of each vaccine administered goes into a vaccine trust fund. When someone is harmed by a vaccine, they go to vaccine court. Thus far, $3.6 billion has been paid out. The MMR can contribute to causing Autism. The effects are even more magnified in baby boys (especially african american). If a parent gives their baby, baby tylenol after the MMR to fight the fever, the Acetaminophen, the toxins in vaccine along with the baby's testosterone magnify the effects and increase the chances of speech delay, auto immune disorders and autism.

5) Peditricians main money maker is vaccines. Big pharmas pay out big bonuses to doctors who follow their vaccine schedules. Without vaccines, it is very difficult for peditricians to be profitable. The peditricians don't have your interest in check. There is a clear conflict of interest.

6) Big pharmas and CDC are not indepedent. Employees of the CDC routinely get lucrative job offers from Big Pharma companies such as Merck to join their team. CDC is essentially a marketing vehicle to promote vaccines so that the Big pharmas sell as many vaccines as possible.

7) The CDC cherry picks scientific data to suit their needs to make vaccines effective. What does "effective" even mean? It just means that the body has to produce anti-bodies when the vaccine is administered. The anti-bodies don't even have to prevent the flu/measles/mumps from happening. The very definition of "effective" is a joke.

8) All vaccines are tested independently. There have been no studies that research if two or three vaccines are given at once. There has been no tests if a flu vaccine and a hepitasis vaccine are given at the same time. Are there any synergistic effects? We don't know because no study has been conducted. Why? Because they know that the greater amount of toxins administered at one time, the greater the chances of bad results happening so why go there. Sometimes 3 to 4 vaccines are administered at one time. It doesn't make sense. No one falls victim to two diseases at one time. The combination of these vaccines are probably confusing the immune system and only bad outcomes can result.

You can scare me all you want. I agree that some vaccines are fine. But there are way too many and given way too close together and way too early in life. The truth doesn't come out because it is being suppressed by the very people who are supposed to protect your baby. There is no replacement for good nutrition. Your body is meant to fight off these diseases. If you are healthy and develop a strong immune system, you should not be afraid.

These vaccines can cause irrepairable damage to your precious child. It is irreversible. Your kid may never have a normal life, and your life will never be normal again.

I've done the risk reward analysis. Don't take your doctor's word. Don't take the CDC's word. Research the ingredients in your vaccine. They are hard to find. Ask you peditrician, what's in the vaccine? He probably does not even know. That's a problem.

Search the internet for the truth. When you hear the other side of the story, you may change your mind.

I have just tipped the ice berg on the facts. There is a ton more proof out there.


Don't take your doctor's word! Don't take the CDC's word! Take the word of some crazy shit on the internet.

We are also looking for a pediatrician in the area. I have heard mixed reviews of Tribeca - specifically that they are more holistic and hesitant to prescribe antibiotics. Also, do they require all patients to get vaccinated or do they accept children at the practice who are not vaccinated? They are convenient, but not sure if that makes the switch worth it. Any opinions on this?


They do require vaccination. However, you seem to have quite the conundrum if you don't want a practice that is too granola, yet you don't want to vaccinate.

As far as I know, it has ALWAYS been the official policy that the JC Parking Authority will not issue you a resident's parking permit if you live in a building that has parking available, EVEN IF THAT PARKING IS OPTIONAL OR REQUIRES YOU TO BUY YOUR SPOT. That's a fairly smart policy, as most people would choose to forgo paying for a deeded parking spot (which can cost as much as 50K in some buildings) or pay the going rents for monthly parking anywhere if you could instead just pay $15 for a yearly pass.


I live in Dixon Mills and was able to provide a note from management saying that I did not own a spot and could not purchase one, and they gave em a parking permit.

Definitely do a combination of Uber and Zipcar. This is what we did until we had a baby, which is a whole other ballgame. Heights to downtown is like $7 each way without a surge. A zipcar is $140 weekend days. Think about that vs. a car payment, insurance and gas.

If you can swing it, get two. Cat's like each other's company and the cost of having 2 versus 1 isn't that much different.

This sounds like a GREAT idea. I am surprised that there aren't many more options like this one. I think that requiring parents to be involved in their kids schooling is a good way to establish and foster the healthy habit of parental involvement in kids' learning and development.


I'm sure there aren't more programs like this, because most parents put their kids in daycare because they have to work. The lack of ability to commit to a coop doesn't mean you aren't involved in your kid's learning and development...

My son has been in Growing Tree since he was 8 weeks old. We're very happy with the program and his teachers are great. However, they only go up to 4 years old, so I'm not sure I would start at a program knowing I'd have to find another one in 2 years.

There is also smart success academy that's opening on Newark and the Brunswick school that's opening.
