Paging Dr. Bimbo

The Lancet, a respected medical journal, has retracted a 1998 article that linked vaccinations with childhood diseases such as autism. Why? It might have something to do with the lead researcher, Dr. Andrew Wakefield. You see, Doctor Andy carried out his findings in an improper manner. An investigation has revealed that Wakefield paid kids at his son's birthday party $10 to give him blood samples without their parents' consent. Along with spinal taps and colonoscopies, Dr. Drew (not Pinsky) was found to be "unethical" and to have a "callous disregard" for the children he conducted his tests on.

1994 Playmate of the Year, Jenny McCarthy, who has a son diagnosed with "autism", is a vocal opponent of having kids inoculated. How many children have died needlessly at the expense of Jenny McCarthy's high profile advice? Even worse is that her advice isn't even free, for ignorant fools are required to purchase her book of theoretically unfounded claims.

For all Jenny McCarthy knows, it could have been her own breast implants that contributed to her son's autism. Perhaps there was enough harmful silicone (and food poison injections from Botox?) within her bloodstream to affect the development of her special needs child within her potentially toxic womb. You couldn't get me to knowingly drink silicone laced breast milk, but an unknowing child has little choice in the matter.

I don't place complete faith in the word of experienced, educated doctors, but forgive me if I seriously doubt the gospel of unscholarly
Playboy Bunnies even more so. If you've lost a young loved one, due to not inoculating, advise your lawyers to launch a class action lawsuit against Jenny McCarthy. I hear she's romantically involved with Hollywood film actor, Jim Carey, so she should be able to adequately compensate all who have unnecessarily suffered from her irresponsible suggestions.

Is it me, or do others also find it extremely unsettling on how shallow women are readily willing to risk the health of their innocent, completely trusting children all in the name of selfish vanity?
