Join Doctor-Attorney-Author Mayer Eisenstein, Vaccine Rights Attorney Alan Phillips, Autism Action Network (AAN) Executive Director John Gilmore, and Vaccine Myth: An Issue of Trust radio show host Shawn Seigel as they discuss the amount of mercury children used to get in vaccines; how AAN helped pass laws in eight states making it illegal to administer mercury-containing vaccines to young children and pregnant women; how AAN uses political pressure as a tool to change public policy; why the increase in inflammatory language about anti-vaccinators in recent months may be a postive sign for their movement; the significant increase in recent years in the number of parents who think that vaccines cause autism; the high rate of vaccinated children in recent outbreaks in the U.S.; why a small number of people can be very effective legislative activists; how the CDC's change in the definition of polio and in the diagnostic parameters for polio prevented as many as a million polio cases from being diagnosed as polio; how respirators have replace the iron lung machines of the 1950's; how vaccination status biases doctors' diagnosis of infectious diseases in children; why food proteins present in vaccines pose a health risk to vaccine recipients; how vaccines interfere with the body's ability to prevent illness; and more!
