Anti-MMR vaccine put-down… hats off to David H. Gorski

February 23, 2009

Wow, in all my reading – and there has been a considerable amount… clinical studies in academic journals, books, magazines like New Scientist and Scientific American, Nature, online science blogs, online reportage, opinion pieces, you name it. I’ve read sh!t-loads over the last few years (apologies for the language), nobody has ever done such a thorough, concise and beautifully put-together put-down of the anti-vaccine movement as David H. Gorski, MD, PhD., over at Science Based Medicine

 2009: Shaping up to be a really bad year for antivaccinationists (David Gorski, 23/02/2009)

I am not even going to quote excerpts from it, it is simply too good. Click on the link and read it in full and if that doesn’t put you straight, nothing will.

    Definitely a classic in the canon of sense about vaccination.

    “If that doesn’t put you straight, nothing will.” I just had to say it didn’t I?

    Gorski’s comments have attracted the attention of at least one anti-MMR blogger. This guy however argues about the potential harm of “vaccines”. A straw man if ever there was one.

    I don’t recall anybody ever saying that “all vaccines are 100% safe for everybody”. Any compound entering your body has the potential for side-effects – from peanuts to carbamazepine, shell-fish to tetracycline antibiotics.

    The discussion was about the MMR triple vaccine – and the jury’s out on that one. In some cases quite literally.

    BTW dvn: The avatar’s great – I like reading your posts just for the icons.
