Jessica Biel is a famous personality that may be best known for her marriage to Justin Timberlake. But star "Sinner" jumped back into headlines last week after meeting with California lawmakers to lobby against the SB276 in California, pending legislation tightening the process of obtaining medical vaccinations. The purpose of the bill is to prevent fraudulent release, especially since there is a serious outbreak of measles in the US. Biel was accompanied by the famous anti-vaccination activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental attorney whose family recently publicly summoned his dangerous advocacy, which includes comparing vaccines with the Holocaust.

The actress said she supports vaccinations and "families who have the right to take educated medical decisions for their children." I do not buy them.
I do not buy it.
In fact, "I'm not an anti-vaccine" is the backup claim of any anti-vaccine activist. For example, Jenny McCarthy claims that the movement she helps lead is "… no anti-vaccine movement. The schedule is for a safe vaccine. "In 2014, she even wrote an operative edition, claiming she was a" pro-vaccine "and that" she never told anyone to vaccinate. "
Yes, this Jenny McCarthy.
Andrew Wakefield, a British physician who has been deprived of his "complicated scam" license in his 1998 study attempting to link MMR vaccination to the development of autism, tried to argue in 2001. , that another of his papers is "… No anti-vaccine. This is the safest way to deliver these children's vaccines. "At a recent rally in New York, the site of the largest measles outbreak in the country, Wakefield continues to argue that the MMR vaccine causes autism that the CDC has been involved in a conspiracy to mislead people about vaccines, that measles, mumps and rubella are harmless and vaccinated, not unvaccinated, that spread measles. Paul Thomas, a doctor in Oregon and a co-author of the Vaccination Plan, says his book is not an anti-vaccine: "This is not a book against vaccines. This is not a pro-vaccine book. This is a pro-child, pro-healthy book for children. He calls himself "conscientious consent". However, the book contains common arguments for the anti-vaccine and patient of Thomas's recently infected tetanus and was hospitalized for eight weeks. costs over $ 800,000.
Kennedy himself has used a similar tactic. In response to an editorial article from several members of his family that his anti-vaccination activities are not in contradiction with Kennedy's family history of strong vaccine support, RFK Jr. responded that he just wanted "safe vaccines with reliable safety tests. "
These are just a few examples of prominent defenders. I could connect with hundreds of ordinary individuals and groups who are similarly trying to turn their anti-vaccine rhetoric into something more acceptable to the general public. This means that instead of an anti-vaccine, they use such phrases as "pro-medical freedom", "choice of pro-vaccine", "pre-informed consent", "pro-vaccine safety", or are characterized as " ". , "Anti-Vaccine Mandate" and "Vaccine Risk".
But no matter what combination of words they use, almost all of these defenders claim that the vaccines are somehow dangerous. The fact that such dangers are not supported by rigorous scientific research is of extreme concern.
And Biel, despite his protests, follows the same book. She explains that her advocacy stems from a friend whose child obviously requires a medical discharge to be vaccinated. Medical exceptions should be rare but in California they have recently exploded as unscrupulous doctors sign out dozens of exceptions – sometimes for money. If this exception is legitimate, then Biels' friend needs to invest even more in maintaining the immunity of the herd – a level of immunity in the population high enough to prevent the spread of infections – to protect the child. A lawmaker attending meetings with Biel and Kennedy noted that they both spend time "talking about their personal conviction that vaccines are dangerous and ineffective." This does not sound like a person who simply tries to ensure that the legal release to a friend is protected. Since not all medical releases are legitimate the employee also reports "… a gene associated with vaccine injuries, and when I look at it, I can only find it on those anti-wak sites. Later employees confirmed that this is a reference to variants in the MTHFR gene, although variants in this gene are extremely common and are usually not harmful, anti-vaccination sites are glued to this gene as a way to obtain fraudulent medical vaccination. – the only type of release that is recognized in California, and what the SB276 would be more careful with the police.
Recently, the authors of the only published scientific article linking MTHF Vaccine Vaccine Vaccination Variants were repelled by anti-vaccines using their studies to justify such exceptions: "Unfortunately, the free use of our study report has been misinterpreted and used to inappropriately justify the release of children from medically indicated vaccines, "The author David Rieff said:
Especially after the outbreak of measles in California in 2015, the division m zhdu those who support vaccines, and those who have not become more polarized. Those of us who support vaccination are tired of those who enjoy an exceptional privilege, such as Biel and Kennedy, and use this privilege to weaken the protection from infectious diseases for all of us. Their claim that "they are not anti-vaccines" is a smoky curtain because the benefits of vaccines are too numerous to deny; of course, no rational person could be an anti-vaccine. Covering anti-vaccine beliefs in rhetoric about civil and religious freedoms or parental rights does not sound open anti-science. But I do not believe them, nor do you.
