MMR and Bad Science

Much is being discussed in the blogosphere about Ben Goldacre's criticism on his Bad Science blog of the LBC radio station journalist Jeni Barnett's casting doubts on the MMR vaccine.

I curse her - if you are the parent of a child at my daughter's school who has chosen not to give your child the vaccine because of the likes of Jeni, you put my immuno-depressed daughter at great risk of catching M or M or R and possibly dying - then I curse you.

Hi Angus

I agree totally. It's appalling - and taking Goldacre to court for pointing it out is just ludicrous.
