‘A dramatic increase in neurological diseases’

  report on her talk, billed as intended to “dispel vaccine myths and misconceptions,” appeared in the Jan. 27 Review-Journal.

I have nothing against Nurse Rupiper, who I’m sure loves children and wishes them well. Nor do I know enough about this branch of medicine to says she’s entirely wrong; it’s not my role to tell parents that kids shouldn’t receive any inoculations at all, and I’m not saying that.

But I do believe people should be fully informed, and I found Nurse Rupiper’s presentation a tad one-sided.


So I sent a copy to retired neurosurgeon and author Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, a former clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and currently a visiting professor in the biology department at Belhaven College.
