Andy Serwer of Yahoo! Finance interviewed Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. It did not go well. Serwer allowed RFK, Jr. to spew his antivax propaganda largely unquestioned.
The NCCIH recently published a study examining the percentage of US physicians who had recommended “complementary health approaches” to their patients in the last year. The percentages are far higher than they should be.
James Lyons-Weiler has published an analysis claiming that Paul Thomas' "Vaccine-Friendly Plan" is safer than the current CDC-recommended vaccine schedule because contains less aluminum. Unsurprisingly, The modeling behind the analysis is risibly incompetent. Same as it ever was.
What causes ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia)? To antivaxxer John Jones, the answer is obvious: vaccines!
Gayle DeLong finally responds to the retraction of her incompetent paper linking HPV vaccination to lowered fertility in women in—of course—the antivaccine propaganda blog Age of Autism. It doesn't go well.
Sherri Tenpenny and James Grundig contort logic into pretzels to deny that low vaccine uptake is responsible for measles outbreaks in Samoa and Congo.
The Lung Institute is more evidence that all for-profit stem cell clinics are predatory clinics selling snake oil. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. THEM. If there's an exception, I haven't found it yet.

Tetyana Obukhanych has a PhD in immunology but has somehow become antivaccine. This week, she tried to refute two recent studies on immune amnesia induced by measles virus infection. Let's just say that it did not go well.
Antivaxers are nothing if not persistent and sometimes creative abusing science. This time it's molecular mimicry, because of course it is. Anything to blame vaccines for autoimmune disease!
