Back To Vaccines

This topic just keeps coming back this year, and I beginning to feel more and more passionate about it, especially when I hear the news that children are becoming seriously sick, or are dying, because they are not receiving their recommended shots.

I'm following the Science-Based Medicine Blog almost every day, since its contributors are top notch professionals in their fields. There are two worthy articles posted today that give you an amazing overview of the topic:

14 Studies Later* - this one is by Mark Crislip, who's a great authority on infectious diseases (and has a great podcast Quackcast). He gives you a first hand analysis of the whole debate, and the validity if the recent studies that show absolutely no connection between vaccines (and specifically MMR), mercury and autism.

J.B. Handley, Generation Rescue, and attacks on critics - great post, as always, by David Gorsky.
