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.

Sorry for all the separate posts, it keeps flagging them as too long :/

Oh, and one more thing, the majority of the "required" vaccines in the U.S. prior to 18mths whole or in part are to prevent strains of meningitis, which can be a deadly disease at any age. However, the majority of meningitis cases are meningococcal meningitis (I would have to look up the figures but as I recall it was around 80% of cases) which has no vaccine. So, for the 20% or less of cases of meningitis caused by other strains I am going to give my 1yr or less infant TWELVE different vaccines to prevent these relatively rare strains of meningitis? Beyond that, my baby is either at home with a solo caregiver or worn on my body when I leave the house... when exactly would she contract these rare strains in the first place? It's just not logical to blindly follow government mandates of any sort without actually evaluating what they are asking of you and weighing whether you believe that is reasonable or not. A great, current and relatively unbiased book on the topic that I highly recommend is "The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for your Child" by Dr. Robert Sears. He outlines each vaccine, its contents, its benefits, its drawbacks and even teases out the differences between different vaccine manufactures for that particular vaccine to allow you to make the best choice not only for or against a vaccine but to ask for Merck vs Phizer based on the contents/side effects/effectiveness/etc. He debunks common vaccine myths and, as the title implies, is truly advocating for informed decision making regarding vaccines as opposed to for or against universal child vaccination. All parenting decisions should be made by parents based on the good of their child and the parent's research based on the best information available at that time... assuming non-vaccinating parents haven't thought about what they are doing or are uniformed is as ignorant as me believing all vaccinating parents do not care about the brain health and development of their children... right?
