Dybil, I am not sure who you are as you are new.... but there is nothing wrong with Taxi post and I don't find it discrediting at all. This is the important thing she said (which I am sure you didn't mean to miss)
I wouldn't advise coming on a board of people you don't know, attacking a long time member and bordering on the offensive. If you are a non vaxer who also needs support then welcome.
In the same paragrapgh, Ari Ne'eman's quote "the idea of the poor, pitiful disabled person that we need to save… belongs on the ash heap of history," is unbelievably offensive to the tens of thousands of parents of severely disabled autistic children, children who are incontinent, non-verbal, severely brain-damaged, and yes, poor, disabled, pitiful, and needing saving. Shame on him for equating their situation with his.
Not once does the author even acknowledge that some children will have(not maybe but they know WILL HAVE) severe reactions to the MMR. Not once does she mention that, even according to Merck's own website, adult females receiving the MMR have a 25% chance of arthritis/arthralgia from the MMR. Not once does she mention that both US and Italian governments have, in the last several months, both admitted that MMR caused autism, and compensated the families.I don't believe we know the REAL number of children who WILL HAVE a bad reaction to getting real measles. I have read the data and to many holes in their assumptions for my taste.
This is what was important for Taxi Mom to say. I read that scaremongering report she posted. I can't find figures anywhere on it at all anymore or they have been removed. The reason it is a scaremongering report is because it acts as though the only true scare is if people don't vaccinate!
Try these REAL reports....
This is JUST Notified accounts where there have been no lab tested confirmation..... this is important though
AND:here are the ACTUAL lab reported confirmed cases.
These two show a very different picture and are important to realize the difference.Lab confirmed cases are only 8 for March in the entire country.
Even if the "notifiable" accounts are real, 302 cases for an entire country in one month just isn't scary to me.
Anyone else wonder why there aren't more lab confirmed cases?
