When anti-vaccine loons make videos…

…the results aren’t pretty.

If there’s one thing about anti-vaccine loons that I’ve come to learn over the last decade or so, it’s that when they think they’re being clever, they’re really not. Exhibit A for this case follows:

Yes, courtesy of a particularly brain dead anti-vaccine website (and, compared to Age of Autism, that’s saying something), all we have in the video above is a rewarmed “toxins gambit.” How to find toxins in 5 seconds or less? It’s more like how to find toxic ignorance in five seconds or less. The guy who came up with is video is probably terrified of salt because it contains chloride ions. (It’s chlorine, don’t you know, and chlorine is toxic!)

Where did I find this gem of pure stupidity? Sadly, it was from a physician, namely Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, who runs the woo-filled and virulently anti-vaccine HomeFirst medical practice in the Chicago area. He’s another one who thinks he’s being clever but ends up looking really, really dumb. Don’t believe me?

Then check out this video:

“I see cancer particles?” What the heck is he talking about? Who knows? he is, however, giving pirates a bad name. In any case, there are a whole bunch of other links to videos on the page; I’ll have to save them for a slow blogging day. They are most definitely what I like to call a “target-rich” environment. So is the Vaccine Truth website; so I guess I have to thank Dr. Eisenstein for insuring that I don’t run out of blogging material any time soon.

I won’t be buying his new anti-vaccine book advocating misinformed consent any time soon, though, even though debunking all the lies in it would provide me with weeks worth of blogging material. I do have limits, you know. After all, I never managed to make it through the Suzanne Somers book. How on earth would I make it through Dr. Eisenstein’s book?
