That site is always obligatory in a threads about outbreaks of childhood diseases because people are morons and took medical advice from a celebrity.

I do not know what is worse, the fact that people like Jenny can be so stupid, or that so many mothers see her as a role model!

Just in case anyone still has the mistaken impression that measles isn't a killer disease - 158,000 die a year from it still (mostly children, and mostly in low income countries without widespread vaccination) - given population growth the 2.6 million mostly children than died per year before widespread vaccinations started in the 1980s would now equate to more than 4 million children dying each year.

So campaigning against measles vaccination without knowing what you are talking about statistically makes you worse than Hitler - especially as at least his efforts weren't specifically targeting children for mass slaughter.

Hey, I'm right there with the Jenny McCarthy hate but let's be honest here: this anti vaccination bullshiat comes from antiscientific world views. It's not just the far right's views on evolution and global warming but also the far left's views on nuclear energy, genetically modified food, organics, "toxins", and this idiotic, all pervasive anti vaccine stuff that it killing children.

Want to see one of the anti-vaccination mothers go absolutely insane?

Tell them the following...

The "R" in "MMR" stands for Rubella. Rubella is not a particularly dangerous disease to humans. It does however cause horrific problems for pregnancies. I won't bore you with the details of just what could have happened to your child if you had contracted rubella while pregnant, but suffice to say as you look upon your healthy non-malformed child you should be damn happy enough people have that vaccine that you were not exposed to rubella. Now I'd like to ask you that if your child contracts that disease and exposes a pregnant woman who had the vaccination but was unfortunate enough to have it not work, as will happen with vaccinations, how long you will be sorry for the problem you created and think about how you would feel if that was your child.
 
2013-02-09 11:52:56 AM
I'd like to think Jenny McCarthy is just ignorant, because you can fix that with some effort, but she's also proud.  It's  dangerous combination, because no one likes being told they are wrong, and she's built herself a nice little cash flow off of vaccination fear.

I know. I'm tempted to give 'em the verbal smackdown with facts and stuff, then I remembered "they're Brits or some crap and my accent is too California, so they'd like totally not understand PROPER Californese English." Facts rarely persuade people with that much derpitty derp anyway. Matter of fact, I've never seen it happen.

So, let the War on Herd Immunity rage on, I guess.

Our pediatrician's office has a sign posted that basically states, We Vaccinate - if you disagree find another doctor.  I smile every time I see it.

I would like to take Jenny on a tour of that office, I'm sure she would be welcomed there.

Were I a parent, I think I would take comfort in knowing that all of the patients there were vaccinated, and my child was exponentially less likely to be exposed.

I blame WebMd.

Seriously, I do put some of the blame on sites that lead people to believe that reading a few brief paragraphs, written by a questionable source, is a worthwhile substitute for a doctor's advice. Yes, there are quack docs and all that, but there are also a huge number of terrific ones. Yet, the clueless flock to listen to a 2 bit actress and playboy playmate with not even a portion of a degree in healthcare (she studied to be a nurse, but dropped out).

So yeah, I blame WebMD.....then again, sites like WebMD exist because stupid anti-vaccs demand to have a place that confirm their less then well thought out beliefs.

It is chicken and egg at the same time.

I think he's busy in the comments section of the article:

More children die from vaccinations than they do of measles, mumps and rubella

Far too many people here who have never checked their facts independently - well away from those funded by drug companies!

Why do people simply believe all they are told without checking the FACTS themselves? If they did this they would see that Dr Wakefield far from being a quack is actually correct and the big pharma comapnies have conspired to have his work rubbished as it threatens their biggest earners - vaccinations! NEVER believe anything without checking the facts independently!

I'm all for patients and patents reading and being informed. One problem is there is so much bad information and so many speak so authoritatively when they're not qualified to do so, and the average person can't determine which information is good and which is crap. It also drives me crazy when someone reads three websites and calls that "doing a lot of research."

That's certainly the M.O.
Reference words like research and facts but only when particular results fall inline with the his emotional reaction to capitalism.

So when are you checking out?

I mean, I can only assume you're one of the "stupid ones" since you apparently have no idea what happens to a population, especially otherwise healthy members who didn't choose to be ineligible to receive the vaccine, when too few eligible members choose to receive it.

Meh.  What about the innocent kids out there suffering because of her parenting and celebrity/wealth, that has allowed her to live a comfy life and pollute the minds of others with deadly ideas?

I don't wish death on her kids, but if they get sick because of her negligence, and it prevents further harm to even a few other kids by undermining her credibility, why isn't it worth it?

You can't blame the blurb format for the dummies that read incorrect blurbs from bad sources.

The problem is anecdotal evidence and advice on medical message boards, which are full of hypochondriacs and worst-case-scenarios.  Message boards are for complaining fanatics FAR more than they are for the praise of balanced people, who generally just go on with their lives rather than scouring the internet for partners in misery, or some place to vent.

Name just about any medical symptom and in 5 minutes of searching you can probably find a link between it and least 50 different conditions (many serious), multiple cautionary tales of failed treatments and horrific side-effects, and then nearly as many testimonials stating the exact opposite.
 
2013-02-09 12:37:55 PM
Paragraph two: "potentially deadly". Paragraph nine: "can kill". Paragraph ten: "can lead to death". Paragraph twenty-four: "potentially lethal".
 The twenty-fifth and final paragraph: "However, there have not been any deaths for several years." They say that like they're disappointed by it.
 
2013-02-09 12:38:05 PM
I once said that too much information can be a bad thing. This is a prime example of someone getting their hands on bad info and then spreading it around without doing further research. Especially since the Dr who wrote the report has been soundly discredited.

When the Polio vaccine came out, there were some folks who weren't going to let their kids be vaccinated so the government made it mandatory, especially if you wanted your kid to go to school. I guess the Civil Rights Lawyers got that stopped.

Then again, I recall when seatbelts were introduced -- and even though the public was heavily educated on what happened in a car wreck if you were unbelted, there were those who were firmly against them. The government had to make it a law to use them and some car makers designed 'automatic belts' to secure you in when you closed the car door.

My Mom was never vaccinated for Measles, since growing up, they did not have a vaccine. She was lucky enough to never catch the disease -- until she got pregnant with my little brother. Even with all of us older kids having them, she somehow escaped. She did make sure all of us kids got every vaccine as soon as they came out.

When my brother was born, he wound up with a malformed hand due to the Measles which, over the years, required surgery to get it to work right. By the time he was 19, we discovered he also had scoliosis -- a chronic bend in the spine, suspected to have been caused by the effects of the disease.

When in his 40's, he had to have surgery to correct it as much as they could since it kept getting worse. Basically, Dr.s opened him up from the nap of his neck to the top of his butt and installed what looks like a huge bicycle chain to stop the curve. (He actually gained an inch or so in height.)

All due to measles.

Now, they've found a link between Chicken Pox and shingles -- a nasty, painful intermittently occurring nerve disease which usually strikes a person over 40.

They also now have a vaccine for Chicken Pox that they didn't when I was a kid. I had the disease way back then, so I have the virus floating around in my system. I just hope it never activates.

I also recall when seeing bowlegged kids in school was not uncommon. Ricketts. Caused by not enough calcium and vitamin D. The leg bones were soft. The Government wiped that out by providing vitamin D enhanced milk cheaply for the schools.

Now, whole milk isn't even listed on the food pyramid and is advertised almost as if it is poison.

The herd mentality of people tends to irritate me.

Somewhere, there's a pleasantly lit room with a nice round table. A bunch of people, mostly men, from various walks of life - but all wealthy - are agreeing that there's only one way to save America. There are too many ignorant, passive people. The greatness of what once was American ingenuity has been smothered by folks who live by superstition and ignorance and "common sense."

Like a 5-man lifeboat with 10 people aboard, the only right answer is that some people have to leave, or they all perish sooner or later.

And so we get crap like this in our media, and refusal of universal health care. From the upper level, looking down, the only way to thin the herd is to let it happen.
