Infant kidnapped, tortured by Missouri state officials
- NaturalNews "It is clear that state officials had been alerted to Ashly and Calob's 'maltreatment,' prior to their check-up, possibly due to two reasons. First, they had signed a religious waiver of vaccination. Second, they had notified their pediatrician that they intended on feeding Caden an alternative formula. But the pediatrician had not objected to either of these practices, both of which were well within the couple's legal rights as parents. Their pediatrician had even approved the alternative formula."

Whopping Cough
- Whopping cough is on the rise in the United States for all age groups. Many don’t realize they need to get vaccinated for this infectious disease.

Comment:  First off, it's "whooping cough".  Second, the question is why is it on the rise?  Increasingly there is concern that the vaccine has mutated into a more virulent form, meaning not only is it more serious but the vaccine would be less effective.  Thus the call for more vaccination might be counter-productive, to say the least.
