I am quite happy believing the sun will "rise" tomorrow, maybe above a cloud layer.
I also believe in vaccinations, although some don't. Same with vitamins.

There have been medicines given to pregnant women with the result of babies born without limbs, or very short ones. But how could these women not believe their doctors?

It is not at all that clear cut what to believe or not.

Well, I believe it is time for my TV show. I hope the TV magazine got it right. Just sometimes it is wrong, but not very often. We have to believe quite a few things, which might not be earth shattering, or universe shattering. Could be life shattering for women and children given a dud medicine. Stop believing our medical doctors?

Some do just that and use alternative medicine. Not me.

GG.
