***Reminder: I'm Not Vaccinating Forum***
Sigh....TedX, you disappoint me. I enjoyed many of your speakers, but I do not like some of your new Good vs. Bad science guidelines. I understand you want to filter out the bad from the good, but I disagree with some of your criteria for the "bad".
Red Flag Topic
Food science, including:
- GMO food and anti-GMO foodists
- Food as medicine, especially to treat a specific condition: Autism and ADHD, especially causes of and cures for autism
Because of the sad history of hoaxes with deadly consequences in the field of autism research, really look into the background of any autism-related talk. If you hear anything that sounds remotely like, “Vaccines are related to autism,” — RUN AWAY. Another non-legitimate argument: “We don’t know what works, so we have to try everything.” Pretty much all the time, this argument is designed to cause guilt in suffering parents so they’ll spend money on unproven treatments.
