Blind Trust

There is a lot of push and pull around the world right now on the hot topic of immunization.  Non-vaccinating parents are being maligned by those fearful of illness and disease.  Fear heightens and the public still continue to be misled and misinformed.  Public health officials state that vaccines are safe and effective, while another whole body of information supports the opposite.  Getting to the truth is complicated. Bottom line, there is generation of parents and individuals concerned about vaccine safety and the right to make informed choices.

However, nobody can make informed choices when large amounts of information provided to the public by the media omits a valuable chunk of information.

A recent article in the Goderich Signal Star, although short and sweet, is a great example of leaving out information.
