I am thrilled to have a different reason to report why we homeschool other than teachers preying on the innocence of children (although the news on that front has not diminished, unfortunately).
Just a few months ago, a reputable British newspaper reported that US scientists had confirmed an autism link to the MMR vaccine. (I note that I heard nothing about it in the American press.) Apparently the alarm has grown so great, that the New York Times was deployed today to quell the rumors. Which is it? Do I trust the info in the New York Times, or the Telegraph?
The autism – vaccine link is not a new development. A few years ago Dr. Blaylock published a well- documented report on the links between mandatory vaccinations and neurological damage, including autism (report available by subscription only, but well worth the cost — much less than one visit to the doctor to give the children the latest vaccines). But the CDC claims the link simply does not exist (Broken link, active August 12, 2006). Which is it? Do I trust the info in Dr. Blaylock’s report, or the CDC?
Considering the credibility of the New York Times, and the huge amount of money the medical establishment makes on mandatory vaccinations for every child in the country, compared to the compelling evidence presented by both the Telegraph and Dr. Blaylock, I would say I have to come down on the side of no vaccinations for my kids.
