Somebody is spamming another board I am on this <a href="http://www.drmdk.com/html/immunizations.html" target="_blank">this little piece of video...</a><br><br>
I added him to my friends and as soon as I am approved I intend to leave this comment:<br><br>
"Thanks for posting that informative video in ALL of my groups. I have to admit...it made me day!!! If Peds are actually loosing money on this (which I highly doubt) Maybe they will stop being whipping boys for big pharma!! Thanks for adding a bit of sunshine to my day"<br><br>
Whaddya think? A bit too snarky?

I didn't see the video you're talking about but just the website makes my skin crawl... Gross smily people and crayons talking about how safe vaccines are and how scary these diseases are. I think (about your comment) that I might be a little more detailed in your response so that others reading it may be educated in the process... Like, why do you doubt that docs would lose money on vax (I know, basic, but newbies will need help putting it together)? What do you mean by them being whipping boys of big pharma? etc...

Wow...I've never seen vaxes made to look so FUN! What kind of appeal is that? Colorful crayons isn't going to sway me.<br><br>
I'm about sick of reading how perfectly safe mercury is and how the FDA only removed thimerosal from vaccines to put the public at ease. How caring of the FDA...always looking out for us.

That is probably my biggest gripe with my last ped...other than the fact she wanted to "fire" us because we were claiming religious exemption. That was her first statement to me when I questioned vaccines -- that thimerosal was only removed because parents were upset about it, not because there was medical evidence it was harming children! To which I scream BS!

Well...I dunno about you all...but I've never heard colorful crayons tell me vaxes were safe. Darn, now I have to rethink my anti-vax stance. Life is so hard... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I like how the Merck dude explained how much vaccines are monitarily worth.<br><br>
I'm pretty sure ds would have chosen to "invest" in $200 worth of toys and fun rather than get out of a couple of days of sleep with runny poop via Rotateq (assuming the vax would have even prevented whatever strain he got).<br><br>
And when I was a kid, I would have given up <span style="text-decoration:underline;">anything</span> to get out of shots. In fact, my worst memory of having CP was being at the peds office in tears, terrified they were going to give me a shot for it.<br>
I distinctly remember the relief I felt when the nurse told me they didn't have any kind of "cure" in store for me.<br><br>
So Merck can keep their Varivax, too. I'll get my kid a ticket to Disneyworld instead with the cash. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Perhaps if peds would actually learn how to treat disease, rather than learn to tow the pHARMa line, they wouldn't be losing $$$.<br><br>
Somehow, I just can't feel too bad for them.

Argh, that site is an eyesore in more ways than one.<br><br><a href="http://www.drmdk.com/html/drgerenser__treatments.html" target="_blank">Autism - Treatments that don't work</a><br><br>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;"><i>VAERS (the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) is a system for reporting events that occur after the administration of any vaccine. VAERS reports should not be interpreted to imply causality. In other words, a VAERS report does not mean that the vaccine caused the event. Statistically, a certain number of serious illnesses, even deaths, can be expected to occur by chance alone among children recently vaccinated. Although <b>vaccines are known to cause minor, temporary side effects such as soreness or fever, there is little, if any, evidence linking vaccination with permanent health problems or death</b>. The point is that just because an adverse event has been reported to VAERS does not mean it was caused by a vaccine.</i></td>

The rest just makes me want to scream. The link should be added to the scaremongering thread - ah crap, that's been archived already.
