I'm bumping up my question because no one answered it. Anybody??
Wiki articles may work for seventh grade science projects but I'm after a higher caliber of evidence here.
I'll take your word for it on AVN--I hadn't heard of them until this brouhaha erupted. But NVIC? I call bull.
By the way, this mess in Australia is beyond-the-pale twisted. I'm going to make my vaccine decision based on available science, noted gaps in science, careful risk-benefit analyses, and ongoing dialogue with my physician. Watching one organization caterwaul and pick a cat-fight with another will have no bearing on my choices. It's just fringy, fanatical, and weird.
Actually, it was answered, but you did the standard anti-vaccination thing of ignoring all fact that doesn't suit your opinion. Wiki is fine in this instance as it stands uncontested.
You have an interesting view on Australian issues, when you live in a country where people walk into schools and shoot children. I call bull on your opinion of the "mess in Australia", there is no mess, there is simply a woman who runs an organisation that funds her seemingly extravagent lifestyle fighting tooth and nail to keep the dollars coming in, and not letting the truth stand in her way. The SAVN (the opposition in this instance) is not an organisation, but a gathering of concerned citizens addressing the issues of misinformation. She accused me publically of bombing abortion clinics and sending her anonymous threatening emails and as I know I do neither I know she is lying. She also has audio up of supposed middle of the night phone calls but if you run that audio through even a basic forensic app you will see that it has been digitally created or amended.
I think everyone should make their decisions based on available science, noted gaps in science, careful risk-benefit analysis and ongoing dialogue with their physicians which is why I, and others, fight so hard to get the misinformation off the internet.
