    Dr. Proffit—who refuses to disclose the millions he’s made in vaccine royalties—once stated that an infant can handle 100,000 vaccines at one time, but then changed that number to a less ridiculous, but still ridiculous, 10,000 vaccines.

    The best way to convince the anti-vaxxer crowd that vaccines are safe is to inject those 10,000 shots himself.

    So what do you say Doc? Shoot up or shut up.

  2. Dorito Reiss says:

    thanks for the warning. I won’t be listening because liars make my blood boil.

  3. Richids Coulter says:

    Boring, how about instead you ask your 10 questions and after each one give Paul Offit 5 minutes to respond followed by a 5 minute response by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny or Dr. Russell Blaylock and then Offit 2 minutes to respond to their rebuttal then them 2 minutes respond then Offit a final 1 minute in each case.

    We know already that Offit’s responses will be canned, will use misdirection and carefully worded language that deflects rather than answers the questions at hand.

    What are the questions? Who decided on them?

    Ask Paul Offit to cite a single study comparing autism rates between fully vaccinated and fully unvaccinated children and when he truthfully acknowledges it hasn’t been done ask him how it’s scientifically valid to claim vaccines play no role in autism? Why is he scared of the answer?

    Question #2 – why has there never been a single controlled study comparing overall health outcomes between fully vaccinated and fully unvaccinated children? What is he scared of finding? Like the CDC will he conclude that perhaps they might be healthier but it’s got nothing to do with their decision not to vaccinate? You can understand why people might have a hard time swallowing that nonsense.

    Question #3: why does Paul Offit rarely if ever disclose his multimillion dollar financial conflict of interests when speaking publicly about vaccine safety issues and when calling for outright assaults on civil liberties, informed consent, precautionary principle and conscientious exemptions.

      Exactly. We’ll put. Liars lie. That’s what they do. Give the truth seekers opportunity to answer the lies is a great idea.
