See What Moms Are Saying In Latest Momversation on Vaccines

February 19, 2010

Check out this video “Momversation” of parents reacting to the recent Lancet retraction. Mommy blogger Daphne Brogdon of Cool Mom gathers some of her fellow parenting bloggers and asks to answer the following questions: Do parents like Jenny MCarthy still insist that the MMR vaccine caused their children’s disorder? Is this the final word on the vaccine-autism link? Or will people cling to the idea that vaccines can cause autism?

    Way to go Moms! Way to see through the lies and speak the truth. FYI the fear-mongers will always be out there, they’ll just shift the blame to something else. In fact I already am seeing blame be put on other things in some vaccines like aluminum. There will be new waves of doubt as the sun sets on mercury as a cause of autism. The fact is, vaccines are the greatest heath discovery of the last 60 years and have saved millions of lives and have prevented countless millions more from horrible diabilities. Listen to your doctors advice they are the experts, not the lady down the street or Ms. McCarthy.

    Thanks for commenting Dr. Ray. Parents are left with so many questions by the time they get off the internet that it would make anyone’s hair stand on end! Every Child By Two created an entire section on the vaccinate your baby website to clarify the ingredients in vaccines and their purpose. I clipped a part about aluminum below but suggest that readers follow this link to see the whole picture. http://www.vaccinateyourbaby.org/about/ingredients.cfm

    Adjuvants: Aluminum has been used in some vaccines for over 75 years to improve the vaccine’s performance by helping to stimulate the body’s immune system to produce antibodies. Without the use of an adjuvant we would need to administer more shots in a given vaccine series or face lower immunity and less protection from the disease. Aluminum is also commonly found in food, water, infant formula and even breast milk.
