"Wakefield called for suspension of the triple MMR vaccine until more research could be done..."

OMG!! LYNCH HIM!!!

The stupid in this thread defies gravity...

Just look at the pics of that kid. First thing that pops into you head? "That kid looks funny". In the old days of medicine (aka 2-3 years ago) they'd write "FLK" on his chart "Funny Looking Kid". Now they just write dismorphic features.

Genetic issues. Or possibly the side effects of having an STD ridden whore of a mom. You know, medically speaking.

FTFA: After years of speaking publicly about her belief that MMR shots (immunization for measles, mumps, and rubella) caused her son to suffer from autism, Jenny McCarthy now faces the reality that her 7-year-old son Evan - who no longer shows any signs of autism - may likely have lived with completely different illness.

Whoopsies!

mgshamster: Are you trolling?

Probably, but he might just have reached the necessary level of willful ignorance to still believe that Wakefield's study is true, after both Wakefield and the study have been so thoroughly discredited.

He'd better watch it though, if he keeps this up he could reach critical mass and become a case of spontaneous human combustion.

I read this headline allowed to my autistic godson.

"So?" he replied, his cute little-kid eyebrow going up. "Autistic kids only care what their moms and their teachers say," he explained. "And maybe their godmothers. And their uncles, but only when they talk about cool stuff like fire trucks."

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. The only autistic kids who lost out by Ms. McCarthy's actions were those whose moms and teachers bought into it. Also, fire trucks are awesome. My godson and my husband are building one this weekend.

FlyingPig: greentea1985: A disease has an identifiable agent, like a bacteria, that is always present in those with the disease, but absent in those without the disease.

A disorder has a recognized set of symptoms, but no known causative pathogen. A disorder is most often caused by genetic or environmental factors.

What about cancer?

Not a specific form of cancer, like lung cancer or whatever. Cancer in general.


the cancer cell itself is the pathogen. Now, what started that chain event of becoming cancerous could be either.

Wow, 400+ comments here and nothing posted on foobies relating to Ms McCarthy.

We have totally lost sight of what is relevant about Jenny Mac.
Certainly it is not her medical knowledge.

Anyway, I saw this "interesting" headline over there.
Sort of the anti-Jenny.

Well, I guess we know who the real retard is now.
 
2010-02-27 03:55:00 AM  
So did Jenny diagnose her son all by herself? Or did a doctor make the diagnosis? Everyone here seems to be pretty damn certain that she decided on her own that her son had autism. Or that if a doctor made the diagnosis, that Jenny, with her zero medical degrees, should have known better to believe it.

Teufelaffe: DamnYankees: Teufelaffe: I was raised by someone with a masters in psychology and a PhD in biology, who studied both the psychological and physiological causes and effects of addictive behavior. It from this person that I tell you that alcoholics and drug abusers are not diseased victims who are being forced against their will to indulge those behaviors. At some point during the process they have to make the conscious choice to take that drink, swallow that pill, inject that needle. Those are not physical actions that can be caused by a disease or disorder. They just aren't.

I'm not sure why "having a choice" means it can't be some sort of disease or disorder. I mean, isn't that exactly what something like OCD is? It's a disorder all about people who are compelled to make certain choices.

I guess I wasn't clear from the beginning. I don't think that alcoholism isn't a disorder. It is. It's part of addictive behavioral issues. That being said, whether or not they give in to their desires is still a matter of choice, and most of the time you see people proclaiming that alcoholism "is a disease", it's some guy who just got arrested for drunk and disorderly for the fifteenth time this month and they're trying to make excuses.

To a certain extent, drug addicts fall in with the same people who have "deviant" sexual desires. For instance, a person with corprophilia can't just decide to not be aroused by feces, but they can make the choice to not act on that desire. By the same token, an alcoholic can't suddenly decide to not want a drink, but they can make the choice to not actually take that drink. Just because someone doesn't want to put forth the admittedly sometimes monumental effort to control their behavior, does not mean that they are incapable of doing it.

I used to have an issue with overeating. Nobody forced me to stuff my face with food, but I did it anyway knowing full well what I was doing. Then, I decided to make the choice to not eat like a fat fark all of the time. I've lost 50 lbs, and I still have more to go, but at no point did I ever try to pretend that my issue was beyond my control. I just manned the fark up and put forth the effort to bring the behavior under control.


I agree that whatever you want to label it doesn't absolve the person of responsibility. If that's what you meant by your Weeners, I have no issue with that. My issue is that it sounded like you painted all addicts with the same brush. There is a difference between the person who uses the physical compulsion of addiction as an excuse to continue that behavior and a person who tries to stop, but falls back into the pattern. I'm not stuck on calling it a disease, or something that is more accurate, but someone with an addiction is physically compromised in the ability to stop once they start. Which leaves, then, the initial decision to use the substance. Many people know full well what will happen, don't want it to happen, but make the choice to do it anyway. That tells me that it's not as simple as "well, just don't do it." That's what I was reacting to in your Weeners. If I misread you, I apologize.

WARNING The Following quote from Jenny McCarthy may lower your IQ substantially


"The day I found out I was an adult Indigo will stay with me forever. I was walking hand in hand with my son down a Los Angeles street when this women approached me and said, "You're an Indigo and your son is a Crystal." I immediately replied, "Yes!" and the woman smiled at me and walked away. I stood there for a moment, because I had no idea what the heck an Indigo and Crystal was, but I seemed so sure of it when I had blurted out "Yes!""

FlyingPig: arentol: Diseases and disorders are two completely different things. The problem is that many disorders have been "upgraded" to disease status because it makes them sound more serious, or because it makes them more "catchy" so they are easier to publicize, or so the issue qualifies for some social program or another. This has resulted in misunderstanding of the two terms.

Yes, because if a medical problem doesn't earn the vaunted classification of "disease", it's obviously imaginary and all in the person's head. It's not a real problem!


A family friend has Crohn's Disease (which is really a disorder because it is not caused by a pathogen) and when she was fighting with her insurance to get them to cover the only medicine that effectively treats her Crohn's she was told, point-blank, by the insurance agent she was talking to that "everybody knows that Crohn's Disease is all in your head."

Oh, boy, 100000 times the antigens (100% of which are for things that are almost totally benign)! Yeah, that's handy, there.

*sigh*

What the hell makess you think that handful of mud is benign? Seriously. At the very least it's quite likely to have some fecal bacteria. Nothing a healthy body can't handle. In fact the challenge is a healthy thing in many respects.

what's in that vaccine? Dead, crippled or otherwise modified viruses that can't make you sick. The challenge is weak enough to require adjuvants in some cases.

cryinoutloud: And yet, most of them live. Inconceivable.

That didn't used to be the case. Prior to the 1860s, infant and child mortality rates in developed countries ranged from 30% to over 50%.

FlyingPig:

My grandfather was an alcoholic. I completely blame him for his own failings. As I said, though, whether or not it's a "disease" is irrelevant. You can have a disease and still be responsible for the poor lifestyle that led to your having that disease (again, see diabetes and lung cancer).


I'm a bit late to this party, but as one who has dealt with alcoholism and mental illness, that is my alcoholism and mental illness I feel the need to respond.

First off, I don't believe that alcoholism is a choice, it's a prize you win in the gene pool. Same for mental illness. What I did have a choice over was how to respond to them.

After years of being a drunken sack of shiat, I decided I wanted to be a contributing member of society. That decision, combined with a rehab stint led me to be almost six years alcohol free. In Wisconsin of all places.

As far as the mental illness, (Bipolar I with GAD) I ended up with medication, but I knew my success or failure would be decided on my desire to get better. Desire combined with medication made me better.

Had I not decided to get better, I would be like the diabetic who chooses not to check his insulin or otherwise change his lifestyle. Such individuals are not worthy of our pity.
