A fifteen page story about the MMR vaccination controversy. As ever, I'm sure a few spelling errors have slipped past me. Feel free to point any out so I can correct them.

The reference links for the strip are in the next blog entry.

Now! Let's have a heated debate!

2013 update. Since I wrote this blog entry, this cartoon strip as well as many others on such subjects as homeopathy, chiropratic, evolution, and the supposed NASA Moon hoax landings, have been published in a book: Science Tales in the UK (Myriad Edtions) and How To Fake A Moon Landing in the US and Canada (Abrams). Here's the link to my main blog.

Y'know, as much as people complain about our "lawsuit-obsessed" culture, I frankly think medical malpractice suits are disturbingly UNDER-utilized.

I've suffered permanent nerve damage because of a doctor who couldn't be bothered with actually looking up known side-effects in the PDR and INCREASED my dosage in hopes of treating the symptoms the medication itself was causing. (Nothing crippling, but it does get painful; the only thing that keeps it under control, alas, is Valium, which is getting increasingly hard to get because "everybody knows" it's dangerous despite the decades of evidence that it's effective and safe for most users... but that's another story.)

And I know two other people who have suffered medically because of his ill-considered prescriptions, yet the guy is not only still practicing, in this small town there's no one else to turn to for his specialty; people kiss up to him because his approval is needed to get access to certain treatments.

Yep, it's a scary world, and sometimes the people who are supposed to keep us safe are the scariest part.
