Amanda Peet Is Awesome

Check out this more detailed post from Phil. There you can view the video interview in which she fights the anti-vaccination silliness. Of course some of those anti-vaccine dunderheads took her to task, so she wrote this awesome letter. We need more like her.

Michael Shermer got this one right too.

Methyl mercury is a problem, not ethyl mercury (which is the active ingredient in Thimerosal).

Vaccination prevents disease. It is not linked to autism, etc.

There are problematic vaccines, but there are also problematic diseases. We need to keep this in perspective.

Thanks, laurence! I'm hoping to meet Dr. Shermer when he visits Atlanta for the labor day weekend.
