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

Has anyone here heard of the apparent lack of autism in unvaccinated groups? 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 …

Not the Ducks – A Dissection of Quackery

Lynne McTaggart’s making some  waves out there in the anti-Medicine movement. For those who are unaware, Lynne leveraged her wide variety of skills into becoming one of the anti-medical lobby’s spokesmen. She’s the author of What Doctors Don’t Tell You and also runs a site. Needless to say? She’s a pretty big deal among the …

Not the Ducks – Measles Doesn’t Believe in Your God

It’s rather weird to think of the Measles as a deadly killer. In fact the problem is it’s not. The chance of you dying from a Measles infection is very very low. But the fact of the matter is simple. Measles was once one of the biggest killers on the planet. More feared than Polio …
