    Parents looking to infect kids with chicken pox

    This is one of the sickest things that I ever heard of. Any parent dumb enough to do this needs to have their kids taken away and be sterilized.

    Everything else aside, what are you doing on FoxNews?...scouting the enemy? LOL

    ------------

    In regards to the video and parents infecting their kids with chickenpox...ehh. Not that big of a deal. If you get the chickenpox vaccine shot that is what it does. The vaccine introduces weakened chickenpox into the body to build antibodies so that when you do get it the effects are less detrimental.

    In fact, if you read up on the history of chickenpox you will find that before the vaccines existed they used to have chickenpox "parties" to infect kids early. Chickenpox is very rarely fatal and usually amounts to little more than a low-grade fever and being itchy for a few days.

    The reality is that the older the person who gets chickenpox the more dangerous it is for them. If you look up the numbers you will see that a large number of the fatalities from chickenpox are adults, not kids.

    I think the real risk, as the one woman in the video points out, is the risk of other diseases. Hepatitis, strep, herpes simplex 1, influenza, mono...these are all spread thru saliva. Chickenpox is the least of their worries IMO.

    I didn't watch the vid but I was reading the article on my phone while waiting for the train to go to work. I just added internet to my cell phone and wanted to test it out and I thought what better way to test it was to see what garbage is on fox news. The article was talking about people chatting with complete strangers on facebook and them getting them to send lolipops that children with chicken pox have licked on in hopes of spreading it to their kids. How would any parent in their right mind do something like that to their kids. They have no idea where that stuff really came from and what they are giving their kids. Parents always tell their kids dont take candy from strangers but now the parents are doing the exact same thing. SMH.

    I agree. It is stupid. Why not just take them and get the vaccine? Or resort to an old fashioned chickenpox party?
