Not the Ducks! – The Financial Post Hosts Anti-Vaccination

Measles is a killer. Measles once killed millions per year. The lethality of the disease wasn’t high but it was so universally prevalent that it didn’t need a high lethality rate. In the developed world the death rate dropped due to improvements in food and medicine. But the Financial Post and Lawrence Solomon add doubt …

Not the Ducks! – Christians Against Gardasil

When the mom of a 15-year-old Indiana teen saw the Merck “One Less” campaign, she made sure her daughter Maddie got vaccinated with Gardasil. After the first dose, Maddie started having pain and fatigue. After the second one, she was in such bad shape she couldn’t even go to school. Her mom now says that …

Choice Implies Equal Value

This one’s from Barbara Loe Fisher at USA Today.  Rather puzzling that the USA Today is giving a platform to a dangerous viewpoint.

Dear Parents, You are Being Lied to By Living Whole

The Anti-vax lobby is under fire. I have long stated that the anti-vax lobby had it’s success due to the success of medicine. See, we made diseases rare. The normal childhood diseases were few and far between and their impact was softened by our technology. With that comes complacency. The anti-vax lobby 150 years ago …

Nurses who Vaccinate – A Response about Homefirst and Mayer Eisenstein

Having a discussion on my wall now about several groups of unvacinnated kids (home-schooled children in the Chicago area and the Amish) where there are apparently ZERO cases of autism. I’m trying to find more about this. There are several legitimate news …

Not the Ducks! – Sherri Tenpenny and the simple Lie

Well Miri’s off on facebook giving the Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) a piece of her mind. Basically? DSW invited Jenny McCarthy to speak and that I am afraid is a big no no. But Avi (and by extension, Miri) you say, isn’t a person not entitled to make a living?

I Get Mail – You are Not Real!

This was just a weird piece of hate mail and I figured it needed dealing with. It’s rare that I get any vitriol from anti-vax. I know that many anti-vax groups bandied around a “Do Not Argue” List. A list of skeptics who should not be engaged on the so called “Anti-Vaccine Debate”. So the …

An Old Response to Russel Glasser Regarding Vaccinations

Hi Avicenna, great article. I’d just like to ask a question because this is definitely an area where I could stand to bone up on my technique. “There is an absolute hand grenade of question that I have found turns the vaccination debate into an utter rout. How does the Immune System Function?” Would you …

Speaking as a Mother On Vaccination

Society commonly labours under the assumption that people know what’s best for their body. This is generally the case when we discuss the lay public, but when it comes to medicine? The most common mistake we see in anti-vax is that they are willing to use their motherhood as a qualification. That somehow they know what’s best …
