Making a Fuss About Jenny McCarthyâFor All the Wrong Reasons

gotham77, you have no idea how "statistically-small" is "the portion of the population that has suffered adverse side-effects from vaccines". What is your source on that? The tracking system for adve more »

Monkstar1, Jenny didn't say that her son never had autism. You linked to a page that says a Time Magazine article "suggests Evan suffers from Landau-Kleffner syndrome, 'a rare childhood neurological more »

These conversations often remind me of two of my favorite articles: "The Trouble with the ANTI 'Anti-Vaccine' Movement: How They Hijack the Issue; Distort the Facts; and Totally Miss the Point" http: more »

Froman13, your comment reflects a total failure to read what I have written and comprehend it. Why is everyone who raises concerns about vaccines assumed to be anti-vaccines and a non-vaccinator? Im more »

Some people do recover from autism. That's a fact. I know some of them. I've seen their before & after videos, their doctor's reports. It can and does happen.

I notice, as is so often the case, that those who claim to have so much enthusiasm for Science make a whole lot of vacuous unsubsantiated assertions with nothing to back up what they say, no citations more »

Slash, I grew up before most of these vaccines existed. I was vaccinated against polio and smallpox, and I really appreciate that. My friends, neighbors, classmates, family and I all came down with more »

Her son is no longer autistic.

Motea, her son was diagnosed with autism by autism specialists at UCLA. Your comment is fact-free.

re: "No vaccine is 100% safe (nothign in medicine is), but the risks are far outweighed by the benefits of vaccines on the individual and society." More tiresome, empty, citation-free declarations. more »

Thousands of parents have witnessed their children regressing into autism following a vaccine reaction. We know that immune system anomalies are a major factor in autism, including inflammation of th more »

Yes, at the same time as trashing Jenny McCarthy and Dr. Andrew Wakefield, people ascribe superhuman powers to them. They are said to cause all concerns about vaccines all around the world by some ki more »

If you brought your car to the mechanic and said that the car has been making a banging sound whenever you shilft gears, how would you feel if the mechanic said: "Don't talk about problems with cars o more »

That's the knee-jerk reaction to concerns about vaccines: We could all die from polio! Like I've said elsewhere, this isn't a matter of all-or-none, for-or-against.

One more mention of Dr. Bernadine Healy... In this article, written by her in 2009, she talks about these concerns: "First, are we overvaccinating our children?... "Second, is the schedule of vaccina more »
