    Boo! Cheap Fox News-style conspiracy theory BS.
    This is NOT the vegan scene.
    “Real vegan” stuff is completely scientifically evidence-based fact: Check out, and the likes of John McDougall M.D.

    You loose the rational and sane high-ground as vegan advocate and media source when giving any weight to, never-mind supporting, anti-vaxxer crap like this. The autism/vaccine connection is one of the most scrutinized hypotheses put forward to explain the cause of autism and the science is established – there is ZERO CONNECTION. But yet there is of course endless websites, documentaries and people like Kent that twist the data to fit their ideology.

    “Twenty epidemiologic studies have shown that neither thimerosal nor MMR vaccine causes autism. These studies have been performed in several countries by many different investigators who have employed a multitude of epidemiological and statistical methods. The large size of the studied populations has afforded a level of statistical power sufficient to detect even rare associations. These studies, in concert with the biological implausibility that vaccines overwhelm a child\’s immune system, have effectively dismissed the notion that vaccines cause autism. Further studies on the cause or causes of autism should focus on more-promising leads.” –

    The fringe antivaxxers like KENT HECKENLIVELY stress and confuse parents for no reason, and contributes to real world consequences like reducing herd immunity that unquestionably saves the vulnerable children that can not get vaccinated due to real health conditions. You have lost my support, I can not donate, never mind refer people to your podcast. Too ironic that I see your last tweet was about fake news.

    Before anyone freaks out about vaccines and the supposed proof this Kent guys has written his book based on, read this article:

    At 36:11 into the show, Kent says Dr. Stephanie Seneff from MIT has shows that if the rates continue, by 2032 we will be talking about 1 in every 2 kids having autism. First of all, she blames Glyphosate in roundup for this, not vaccines. However she does not do lab work, she is a computer scientist and all her claims comes from crunching data in her computer simulations where she draws wild causations. Read more at:
    Her claims have been examined and it’s purely speculation and correlation.

    The following is from WikiPedia (you can find all the sources there)

    Clinical neurologist Steven Novella criticized Seneff’s Entropy publication for making “correlation is causation” assumptions using broad statistical extrapolations from limited data, saying “she has published only speculations and gives many presentations, but has not created any new data”.Scientists and scholars such as Derek Lowe, a medicinal chemist, and Jeffrey Beall, a library scientist known for his criticism of predatory open access publishers, have separately criticized Seneff’s paper for misrepresenting the results and conclusions of other researchers’ work. Lowe and Beall also noted that Entropy and its publisher, MDPI, have a known history of publishing studies without merit.

    vaccines, regardless of their effect or lack thereof, are not vegan in any case as they contain animal products and are also tested on animals.

    it is peoples(the individuals) right to chose this! (if you think not i can tell you where to stick the needle. you all have institutionalized child abuse.) has anyone ever died after a vaccine? do you think no one ever gets extremely sick after a vaccine?
