I'm not teacozy, but I think scare tactics are not appropriate. I don't really care who's doing them.

Its an interesting idea. It's much like wikipedia in a sense - allowing open input, but that must be well cited and backed up by sources. Except Google are trying to do this sort of automatically by...

I'd have to agree these would be good things, but I also want to point out that these things exist in countries other than the USA, and no huge hidden rash of vaccine reactions have been revealed in...

I personally love it when other people articulate my thoughts better than I can - I find it an excellent learning opportunity. I had that feeling when I read "Bad Science" by Ben Goldacre (as I've...

No I was just curious as to what fraction of vaccinations 4000 compensations (and/or 11 thousand claims) relates to. I wanted data. 4000 would be unacceptable if there were 20 thousand vaccines given...

Makes me wonder how many vaccinations have been given in the USA since 1988 - that's 27 years by my count….

What's the typical shelf life of a vaccine. Really four years? Most of the stock drugs in my medicine cabinet seem to be out of date because my kids use them so rarely (I have very healthy kids), but...

That's as much of a generalisation as suggesting all those who refuse vaccines are anti-science "nuts". I don't think it's helpful to the discussion, and it's certainly not true of MDC vaccinating...

I too wonder when the next set of autism prevalence figures will come out. A survey done in 2010 now seems a long time ago.
