to as many as 10,000 vaccines at one time."
and I thought I read somewhere (on the aap site?) that the 10,000 number was the number of antigens (is that the right word I'm looking for?) that a baby's immune system could handle. It didn't take into account the toxins in the vaccines.
So, even though she read the studies, she quoted them wrong, and was giving wrong info.
