Unfortunately, this indicator is growing every year. This is due to the fact that the enamel of the child’s teeth is not yet fully formed and cannot fully resist microorganisms that destroy children’s teeth. Early caries develops very quickly and leads to unpleasant consequences if treatment is not started in advance. But many moms and dads continue to ignore this problem.

In turn, opponents of vaccines give stories about the dire consequences of vaccines. Who is right? Is vaccination necessary? How dangerous is vaccination? And who really needs vaccinations?
What is vaccination for?
Vaccination is the introduction into the body of a weakened or killed pathogen. In response, the immune system produces antibodies to combat it. The next time this particular microorganism enters the human body, the immune system “remembers” it and immediately responds, preventing the development of the disease. Continue reading
