I was reading a few of the comments to a WaPo story on the measles when I had the good luck to stumble across this one. Enjoy
"How anti-vaxxers sound to the rest of us: I once almost choked to death while eating food. I did my own research, and discovered I’m not alone. Thousands of people choke every year while eating, and hundreds of those people die. That’s why I don’t feed my kids. It’s dangerous. Now plenty of people will point out that food supposedly “prevents starvation”, and that might be true; but it’s not fair to completely ignore all the dangers that food poses, like choking, allergies, gingivitis and garlic breath. I’m just saying, do your own research and decide what you think is best for your kids. If you choose to give your kids a potentially dangerous food that’s your problem, but as a parent I don’t think the government has any right to tell me that I need to feed my kids."
