freewill: PunGent: So, the article says infant deaths are down, but doesn't actually give a source for the increase in longevity stat. (yes, I know one can lead to the other, but the article doesn't give a source).You'll have to excuse me, but I'm gonna take any statistics out of Afghanistan with a HUGE grain of salt...particularly when the take-away is they want more of my tax dollars.I would imagine that the assumption is that surviving infants will have similar lifespans to other surviving infants and die of similar causes, which is reasonable since it is unlikely that vaccinated children will become disproportionate magnets for other or novel causes of death. Simply by not dying, they're blowing out the curve.
