“Children need to be protected from the measles– and from politicians who speak as scientists.”

Anti-vaxxers continue to amaze and appall. Hence, today's Los Angeles Times letters to the editor, because our voices matter: It has been reported that Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey believes parents should have some choice about vaccinating their children and that Rep. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) believes vaccines should be voluntary. Both of these statements by presumptive would-be presidents promote fear mongering and help the anti-vaccination movement. The supposed connection between autism and the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine reported by disgraced British physician Andrew Wakefield in 1998 has been retracted and thoroughly debunked. For 62 years I have taken [...]

My doctor’s kickass LA Times letter: “Ignorance cannot dictate public health.”

I'm lucky. My internist is not only a top notch physician, he's also a sharp-as-a-tack, hilarious, proud liberal. Whenever I go in for a check-up, we spend the first ten minutes talking politics (Well, after he tells me a couple of jokes. Priorities, people!). And by talking, I mean lamenting.
