Something to watch

Families will make case for vaccine link to autism
I have been following this and hope this results in a positive outcome for the families. Their story is very similar to my second son's journey. I will not be surprised to see big pharm block this somehow. My prayers are with these families today.

I hope it comes out well for them too. My sister always thinks that the DTP shot triggered one of her children developing leukemia. She had a cold when she got the shot, and she asked her pediatrician if they should wait because of it. He didn't think so. When her daughter showed up with leukemia several months later, they figured that she had started with it right around the time she received that shot. Plus a cell line in that shot affects the same cell line that the leukemia was in. Of course they could never prove anything, but they've always wondered.I've often wondered how many things are possibly affected by all the vaccines. Every time you turn around, they want to give them something more.
I hope you had a blessed Mother's Day.

Hi Thorn - interesting interview with the former NIH head on CBS - I've got it posted, so if you have a few minutes, c'mon over. I know what I think...

From the article you linked to:

""I think that what's so endearing to me about the anti-vaccine people is they're perfectly willing to go from one hypothesis to the next without a backward glance," said Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia."

Whoa, little full of yourself much? Gee, I'm glad we're "endearing" to you...keeps you from having to take any of us seriously. Wouldn't want that to happen now, would we?
