This proves how mis-informed some parents are when they ask people like that for advice, read this type of literature and call that research.
    At the very least they should have a big disclaimer stating that this is a book containing the opinions of one person and is not based in science and fact.

    Can't believe media is giving her coverage? If I started saying the earth was flat, would they write an article on me? Or on any other nut job other there that regularly says bizarre things?

    People like this annoy me, I don't vax but her claims are all unproven and she is promoting them as fact when the truth is there are no 100% in vax/not vax. All she does is make people who don't vax look like they are not rational. Unfortunately there is also this view that it is ok to take these views of someone who doesn't vax and then generalise them as the view of the 'anti-vax camp' or 'anti-vaxxers' overall, even from those who would normally stand up against stereotypical views.

    Nah from my dealings with non and delayers vaxxers on here I know most are pretty sensible people that just don't have the same risk analysis as me. Like any group there are always nutbags.

    Hideous. What a hideous woman. I find it hard to believe that even she would actually believe her lies.
    The insinuation that those who choose to vax are just sheep who do not do their own research and risk assessments is as insulting as it is confusing. I researched, I did my risk assessment. For me it was an easy choice.
    As for her homeopathy "cure" claims: I have long believed that homeopathy should be banned. There is NO evidence that it works. NONE. You cannot treat illness with water.

    I think this statement from her:

    "If they go online, they might read wild, crazy things that some people put on there," she said
    sums it up best.

    This woman is a nutjob. Unfortunately, I know a few that share her opinions. We delay and selectively vaxx, but fruck me, so much said in here by other posters I agree with!
