"As for the vaccine Ingredients list, so what? The chemicals in question are in minute quantities and therefore harmless. Do you fear drowning after drinking a glass of seltzer?"

[Can't handle the truth about vaccines so pulled the Anti-Semite card, and accused whale of calling for genocide against Jews!  Truly desperate, but just looks like Offit gofer out of her depth.]

See Amazon Pharma trolls: Podmore, William   Simpson, Michael  King, Andrew

Stacy Mintzer Herlihy banned postings onto her page, can't handle the truth: 'While Stacy is tolerant of scum on this page, I, Allison, am not. Scudamore os an anti-Semitic lunatic, and while he's managed to turn the Amazon reviews of the book into his own personal blog, he will not be allowed to do so here. Scudamore, you already have a blog (a festering cesspool of filth, scum, and lies) and are invited to post your shit there instead.'

Your Baby's Best Shot: Why Vaccines Are Safe and Save Lives by Stacy Mintzer Herlihy , E. Allison Hagood, Paul A., M.D. Offit

S. Herlihy says:
I am one of the authors of this book. I am also Jewish. Whale to is a notoriously anti-Semitic website. It is filled with horrifying accusations against Jews and essentially calls for another holocaust which would involve the literal murder of me and my daughters. I would like to publically voice my sheer disgust that Amazon is allowing such an evil group to comment on my book. I would also like to voice my disgust that not a single member of the anti-vax community has stepped forward to condemn this organization's unrepentant hatred. 

J'Accuse, people, J'ACCUSE!



1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Garbage, June 23, 2013
This review is from: The Greater Good (DVD)
Paranoid nonsense by nitwits with a dangerous agenda.

The authors allege that the pharm companies, pediatricians and world health officials are engaged in a massive cover-up of vaccine dangers. A handful of doctors are interviewed along with parents who believe their children were endangered by vaccines. No scientific evidence is presented to back up such claims.

Low profit vaccines are alleged to be huge wage earners. Meanwhile the claims of anti-vaccine lawyers who hope to make a tremendous amount of money suing pharm companies are presented uncritically. Why are we supposed to believe that the vast majority of peds are engaged in a cover-up to hurt children while lawyers hoping to make a fortune suing have clean hands and pure motives?

Much of this focuses on the Gardasil vaccine. HPV is a dangerous illness that has infected millions of Americans. Thousands will develop cancer as a result. Rather than being presented as an incredible good that we have a way of preventing this disease, the film editors ignore this fact in favor of a bizarre series of unbacked assertions that the vaccine is harming children. What kind of human beings fear safe and proven methods of preventing cancer causing viruses? What kind of human beings shrug off deaths from cervical cancer (as Ms. Fisher does!) as of no consequences?

Other nonsensical claims are also presented equally uncritically. We are told that vaccine contain formaldehyde without being told that the average pear also contains formaldehyde as well as your very own body. Dangerous diseases like hep b are utterly downplayed while the minor risks of vaccination are hugely exaggerated. We are told that large numbers of unknown children are being sacrificed so that vaccine makers can earn a profit. The film ignores that vaccines are tested extensively and have been used to prevent disease for over two hundred years.

This argument makes no sense at all. We have no evidence that vaccines are endangering children. We also have no evidence, contrary to the assertions in the movie, that spacing out or delaying vaccines does anything but putting children in danger needlessly while offering no benefits. We certainly have no evidence that doctors and pharm companies and world health officials are involved a conspiracy, as this insane movie argues, to hurt massive numbers of children and then cover up that fact.

Ms. Fisher and her cohort of paranoid lunatics should be completely ashamed of themselves. If a single young woman gets cancer or hepatitis b because of their efforts, that will be to their eternal shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thoughtful Critique of an Important Subject, August 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Vaccine: The Controversial Story of Medicine's Greatest Lifesaver (Hardcover)
This book is a highly readeable and intriguing look at an important subject. Mr. Allen writes well and gives us insights into the thought process of the anti-vax movement. He also walks the reader through the long and facinating history of the development of vaccines. A must for any parent or interested onlooker curious about this subject.

Other good books out there can also help readers understand this issue including the following one that Mr. Allen praised:

Your Baby's Best Shot: Why Vaccines Are Safe and Save Lives
1.0 out of 5 stars Self Published Drivel, August 26, 2012
This review is from: Raising A Vaccine Free Child (Paperback)
The "author" has self published a screed full of lies. Millions of children die each year for one reason and one reason only: because they have no access to vaccines. Do not buy this book if you want to find any real information on this topic. Instead read better books on this topic by true experts such as Dr. Paul Offit.
1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Written Nonsense with a Dangerous Agenda, August 20, 2012
This review is from: Vaccine Epidemic: How Corporate Greed, Biased Science, and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health, and Our Children (Hardcover)
This book consists of a series of essays that do nothing to inform the reader about this issue. Instead we are subject to a series of disjointed essays that contain serious factual errors. For example, the book asserts that we do not need to vaccinate for tetanus because babies aren't in contact with rusty needles. Meanwhile thousands of babies die each year because they lack access to the vaccine.

Worse, the book uses Ms. LeGuin's essay as a theme without her knowing about it. I contacted her agent and she admits Ms. LeGuin is neither anti-vaccine nor was she aware the authors had used her story in this way.

No parent should rely on this book for anything other than an examination of the paranoia of the anti-vax movement.
5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Summary, August 20, 2012
This review is from: Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All (Hardcover)
A must-read for parents and anyone else interested in this issue. Dr. Offit does not hesitate to tell the truth about the history and current behavior of the anti-vax movement. As we find ourselves in the middle of the largest epidemic of pertussis in a very long time, we need more brave people willing to do the same.

Those who desire further information should read my book on vaccines as well. Dr. Offit generously helped during the writing process.



S. Herlihy says:
Most people are already vaccinated. That still doesn't negate the fact that the unvaccinated are far more likely to get vaccine-preventable diseases. 

I have no idea why anti-vaxers always think people are being paid by pharm companies when they tell the loons to stop threatening public health. Are you paid by Wakefield? Mercola? The Age of Autism? Any other alterna-med promoters like chiropractors and homeopaths? 

As for the vaccine ingredients list, so what? The chemicals in question are in minute quantities and therefore harmless. Do you fear drowning after drinking a glass of seltzer? 

Plumbing and clean water are all very nice but many vaccine-preventable diseases like measles are airborne so that hardly makes much of a difference.
