What a pile of crap!
The author conveniently forgot to mention the pertussis epidemics in the countries with near 100% vaccination rates.
There was not even a hint of rational thought in that whole article. Even the CDC admits that much of what constitutes epidemic numbers with pertussis might largely be related to the liklihood of doctors to even test for the pathogen.
No epidemic=doc says it's bronchitis.
Epidemic=swab for pertussis.
Even the colorful language of that article reminds me more of a George Romero script than something scientific.
