Got the Nov. issue of Wired in the mail recently with a large cover shot of a baby and the gigantic word "fear" streamed through the middle of the page. If that wasn't clear enough, the blurb on the front highlighting the article contained within leaves no doubt about its stance.
The article, which focuses on Paul Offit (coinventor of a rotavirus vaccine) and also covers topics such as pseudoscience and fear, was in my opinion well written, interesting and personal. You get a ton of personal stories regarding people who are anti-vaccination in one form or another, but not a lot of personal stories surrounding someone in favor of vaccines.
Offit is quoted for saying regarding the issue of vaccination that it is currently "a pitched and heated battle." No matter how nice you try to play it, I have to agree. It's definitely a "hot topic" right now, getting more and more press all the time. I guess that isn't too surprising since parents can be some of the most deeply passionate and emotionally driven people. You might be surprised to hear, though, that Paul Offit has had several threats on his life and his family. Also, if you go to Wikipedia to read his bio, often as not, someone will have tampered with the page.
But Offit is just the tip of the article which has quite a bit to say. It's an interesting article, worth reading if you want to. You can read it here.
