Patrick, give me a break. You present a link to a document by the Vaccine Action Network. It is an evil document. First to suggest that vaccines don’t work because there is no placebo control is insane, and false. Animal studies and epidemiology show that there is a clear effect of the treatment. The thing you post also suggests non-vaccinated vs vaccinated trials. That is the point of my article here — YOU did the experiment. The anti-vaccination movement scared parents into not protecting their children and now we’re at the front edge of an epidemic (that is affecting almost exclusively the unvaccinated). Going forward, keep the activist trash and share peer-reviewed research. That’s what I base my synthesis on, and it is currently being profoundly supported by measles outbreaks in the unvaccinated.
