One might think that the anti-vaccinators are racists.

One might think that, I could not possibly comment.

Michigan mother jailed for refusing to vaccinate her son

Rebecca Bredow would not let her nine-year-old be immunised after initially agreeing with the father to do so.

Her ex-husband has now been awarded temporary primary custody in order to get the boy the jab People who do not speak Proper English use such words.

Michigan parents are legally allowed to skip or delay their children's vaccinations due to personal beliefs.

But Bredow fell foul of the law because she reneged on agreements with her former spouse dating back to November 2016 to have the boy immunised.
The mother-of-two was sentenced on Wednesday for contempt of court after flouting a court order last week to have her son vaccinated. So, unfortunately, this is more legal consequence than a legal recognition that her refusal represents harm to the child.

She and her ex-husband decided at the time of their child's birth that they would space out See, this is what not having guns but having women as leaders gets you. See: Asthmatic and his Fag-o-Cycle. We need to send them some Freedom and delay jabs for their son.

The couple separated in 2008, according to ABC News, but they shared parental custody and the father still wanted the boy vaccinated.

Really, Dr. Important, you don't believe people can try homeopathy for rectal beaver infestation if they believe it works?
No. Even Faux's coverage had a lawyer who not only explained how she legally fucked up, she did not try the "though she has a right to determine what previously eradicated diseases other children will die from" apologetics. The medical expert simply damned her and, Heavens to Betsy, even the Talking Head agreed and suggest she should lose any custody.

Ars Technica wrote:Naturopath teaches real doctors something—a new way to cause liver damage

In a medical first, a 38-year-old man with gallstones developed severe liver damage and jaundice after following the delusional advice of a practitioner of naturopathy, a pseudoscientific system that eschews evidence-based medicine.

Writing in BMJ Case Reports, doctors report that the naturopath told the man to take an excessive amount of Epsom salt for "stone dissolution." Such overdoses of the salt, aka magnesium sulfate, can cause diarrhea, breathing problems, kidney injury, and cardiac arrhythmias. But this is the first time doctors have ever reported that it caused liver damage.

If it had been a homeopath, the dose of Epsom salts would have been more reasonable. 8)

Ars Technica wrote:Herbal remedies embraced by naturopaths, alt med widely linked to liver cancers

According to a study published Wednesday in Science Translational Medicine, traditional components of herbal remedies used throughout Asia are widely implicated in liver cancers there. In Taiwan, for instance, 78 percent of 98 liver tumors sampled displayed a pattern of mutations consistent with exposure to herbs containing aristolochic acids (AAs). These are carcinogenic components found in a variety of centuries-old herbal remedies said to treat everything from snakebites to gout, asthma, and pain.

Essentia fires about 50 workers over refusal to get flu shots
Essentia Health has fired roughly 50 employees who refused to get flu vaccinations under a new policy that pits personal choice against public health interests.

Hundreds of workers got their shots last week after being warned that they would otherwise lose their jobs, the Duluth-based health system said Tuesday.

But a fraction of workers still refused and did not meet Essentia’s medical or religious criteria for exemptions, according to Dr. Rajesh Prabhu, an infectious disease specialist and Essentia’s chief patient safety officer.
Religious criteria? Of course, if you believe in the right Sky-Daddy you are exempt. :roll:

Labor unions are also unhappy:
Three unions objected to Essentia’s policy, which was imposed to reduce the spread of influenza in the health system’s 15 hospitals and 75 clinics in northern Minnesota and three other states.

The United Steelworkers, which represents some of the workers, unsuccessfully sought a federal court injunction to block the company from firing workers who refused vaccine.

The Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) and the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees, Council 65, also lodged complaints about the practice with the National Labor Relations Board. The nursing union announced Monday that it would file grievances on behalf of any nurse who lost a job over the flu shot policy.

“We tried to sit down with management, but Essentia executives told us they intend to follow through with terminations and mandatory flu shots regardless,” said Steve Strand, co-chair of the MNA’s bargaining unit in Duluth.

As many as 400 doctors, nurses or other workers hadn’t been vaccinated as of Nov. 15, when Essentia reported 97 percent compliance among its 15,000 employees. But many of those holdouts got shots or filed exemptions before the company’s Nov. 20 deadline.

Prabhu said 99 percent of Essentia’s workers have now complied — though the company is still reviewing some exemption requests.

Measles cases in Italy skyrocket as populists call for vaccination ban
Italy recorded 5,006 measles cases last year, over 25% of the European total.
The country's immunisation rate is 87%, significantly lower than the recommended 95% threshold.
Northern League and Five Star Movement have vowed to scrap a vaccination law ahead of the March election.
