For those of you who are interesting in all sides of the story, not just Liz Ditz’, you can visit If you don’t believe me, just check it out. If you are interested in my well-documented OPINION, you can check it out. But the news, blogs, information, etc. is reported for all sides. (You will see this “shot of prevention” post there as well.)
You also might be interested that Liz Ditz considers information from peer-reviewed medical journals, the CDC’s VAERS website, etc. disinformation and “outright lies”. But to people like Liz, there is only one side to this story.
Here’s some of the “disinformation” or “lies” that I have published on Twitter and elsewhere: ~90 medical journal articles providing evidence that the questions surrounding thimerosal safety have not been settled: – evidence thimerosal risk page 1 – evidence thimerosal risk page 2
By the way the very disingenuous definition of measles virus makes it appear common that there are long-term serious side effects to the measles. That is arguable – even CDC statistics show, for instance, that the death rate had dropped significantly prior to vaccination.
And it is now known that aspirin can make all viruses more serious, including measles ( and that vitamin A can cut the death rate from measles in half, even in places like Africa ( How many of the deaths reported recently and in the past could have been avoided by avoiding aspirin? How many of the deaths reported recently and in the past could have been avoided by administering high doses of vitamin A?
In addition, there are clearly risks from the measles vaccine. Here are serious adverse reactions to just the MMR. (It doesn’t included vaccines the measles virus but not MMR.) Are they all coincidences?
David Kessler, former head of the FDA, reported on a study showing only 1% of serious adverse drug reactions get reported.
There is reason to think serious adverse reactions to vaccinations might be reported even less:
Shoulds those 25,030 emergency room visits reported to be associated w/MMR be multipied by 100 to equal 2,503,000? By 10? By ? The fact is we don’t know but should.
The truth is we don’t know how many adverse vaccine-associated reactions are actually happening or how that compares to long-term effects of diseases. But what we should know is that the only useful comparison is the long-term effects of diseases to the long-term effects of vaccinations. Until we assiduously pursue the answer to that question we have no business issuing blithe reassurances about vaccine risk.
