Glen Beck, anti-vaxxer

Post by Nyarlathotep » Fri Sep 19, 2014 1:41 am

Glenn Beck Literally Stands Up And Applauds Parents Who Are Refusing To Have Their Children Vaccinated

So we can add this to his list of charming character traits. Though he claims he isn't against ALL vaccinations. Just the ones the ebil gubbmint says you should have. Or something. His comments were more than a bit murky and bulshitty.

. . . and I am not surprised.

Because, you know, the Government WANTS to kill you. Which is why the incidence of these diseases decreased to near-reportable . . . until fucktards started thinking reality was a matter of opinion.

Turns out he also has been seeing a "Chirporactic Neurologist".

Why am I not surprised that there isn't a form of woo that Ol' Becky Boy doesn't subscribe to?

Would be a shame . . . shame if he suffered a vertebral artery dissection.

Shame.

Oh, yeah, I read his story about it.

Your link however, gives a plausible alternative diagnosis for his condition:

Many of Beck’s symptoms, however, are common to patients suffering from panic disorder.

Most people are aware of common symptoms of panic; increased heart rate, shortness of breath, a sense of impending doom and an irrational and escalating sense of alarm. However, in extreme cases, the anxiety of a panic attack can be so intense that it develops into what are known as psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.

The website for the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at NYU’s Langone Medical Center explains that these types of seizures are “the result of subconscious mental activity or distress. It is not the result of abnormal brain electrical activity.”

However, “(t)he person is usually unaware that the seizures are not epileptic. Nonepileptic seizures most often resemble complex partial or tonic-clonic seizures. The degree of resemblance varies considerably, often making diagnosis difficult.”

People suffering from panic attacks can experience all of the symptoms of epilepsy or other seizure disorders, as well as experiencing numbness, tingling and pain in the extremities, feelings of unreality and depersonalization, memory loss and other symptoms described by Beck.

People who suffer from panic disorder typically see between 10 and 20 medical practitioners before receiving an accurate diagnosis.

I bet you can still cure it with a vertebral artery dissection. . . .

Hmm.

Panic attacks as a political persuasion.
