Kylee Dixon is a 13-year-old girl with undifferentiated embryonal sarcoma of the liver whose mother stopped chemotherapy and has been treating her with CBD oil. The State of Oregon intervened to see that Kylee undergoes appropriate surgery. Where do "parental rights" end and the child's rights begin?
In response to measles outbreaks among the Orthodox Jewish communities in Brooklyn and Rockland County, New York passed S2994, eliminating nonmedical exemptions to school vaccine mandates. This provoked a lawsuit and an offensive analogy that actually didn't involve the Holocaust. So much for the protesters not being antivaccine.
The International Tribunal for Natural Justice has named antivaxer Del Bigtree and "pH Miracle Living" quack Robert O. Young as "Commissioners for the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the Weaponisation of the Biosphere." What the heck is ITNJ, and why is it naming quacks to its Commission?
Barbara Loe Fisher is back. This time, instead of Nazis and the Holocaust, she's comparing vaccine mandates and bad press about antivaxers to McCarthyism and their "persecution" to that faced by anyone suspected of Communism in the early 1950s.
Last month, the Israeli Academy of Science and Humanities elected antivax quack Yehuda Shoenfeld to its ranks? Why and how could this have happened?
Last month, HB 4710, a bill to license acupuncturists, was considered by the Michigan House of Representatives Health Policy Committee. If passed into law, HB 4710 would do far more than license the quackery that is acupuncture. It would also expand the scope of practice of acupuncturists to include homeopathy, “health coaching”, and dietary advice, and is yet another example of what practitioners of pseudoscientific medicine crave: State-granted legitimacy.
Antivaxers really, really don't like HPV vaccines. Too bad that a new meta-analysis shows that they're really effective.
Everyone's favorite quack Joe Mercola is ranting about Google. It's not surprising, given how Google has apparently deprioritized content from quack websites..
