JABS poster in "Fuckwitted Ignorance" shock

Seonaid has posted this gem:

I'd think long and hard before going for the swine flu shot if I were you. This vaccine has been rushed through production without proper testing - it contains thimerosal [50% mercury] and a toxic adjuvant called squalene - use of which is supposed to be illegal in this country.

How many ways can you be wrong?

The swine 'flu vaccine has not been "rushed through", and it's been tested at least as thoroughly as seasonal 'flu vaccine. Squalene is not toxic - it's produced naturally in the body - and it's not illegal. I've ignored the thimerosal non-sequiteur, as it's been shown time and time again to not be dangerous at the levels found in vaccines.

Fucking idiot.

JABS and other anti-vax nuttery sites keep repeating the lie that the Swine Flu virus is more dangerous than Swine Flu itself.

So far in England there have been 142 fatalities from Swine Flu. There have been none from the vaccine.

Do the maths yourself.

H1N1 jab better than expected!

Someone* at JABS tells us:

One person has died after being given the Government’s new swine flu vaccination.

Apparently, seven million doses of the vaccine have been given out, and since then, only one person has died! It seems that Swine Flu vaccine is the answer to eternal life!

Vaccine Lies / AIDS denial

Funny how these things so often go hand in hand, isn't it? Prime nutcases Gus The Fuss and John "Pigfucker" Scudamore are just two among the crowd at JABS who regularly put forward loony "alternative" HIV/AIDS ideas - or "dangerous lies" as I prefer to call them.

Well, it seems that this phenomenon isn't confined to the UK. Head of the Australian Vaccination Network, Meryl Dorey also appears to jumped on the AIDS denial bandwagon, judging from a posting on the organisations Yahoo Group:

Actually Katherine, nobody has ever 'seen' the HIV virus


the court is definitely out on both the existence of an HIV virus and the connection between what is seen under the electron microscope (whatever that may be) with the symptoms we've come to call AIDS:

No Meryl, the court (or, more commonly, "the jury") is most definitely not still out. Your pathetic lies were shown to be just that years ago, and linking to bonkers denial sites does not make anything you say true.

If anyone would like to do some sensible reading on AIDS myths, try That's advice Meryl Dorey could usefully follow.

Oh look - spread fear through lies.

Jacquia has posted a link, which she describes as:

A miscarriage website with comments from women who miscarried after the Swine flu vaccine.

Following the link, it's a page with comments from women who miscarried after being diagnosed with Swine Flu (H1N1). And the JABS loons are always telling us how it's better to have the disease than the vaccine. Rrrrriiight…

Evil bitch.

JABS and AoA in "Quoting any old shit" shocker

Both the JABS Forum and that USA-based hotbed of stupendous idiocy "Age of Autism" have reproduced a press release, via Reuters (which they clearly hope will give it a sheen of legitimacy), regarding chelation, and how it's been shown to be of benefit for autism. Chelation - a potentially dangerous procedure used to remove heavy metals from the body in cases of heavy metal poisoning.

This is a prime example of advocacy groups ignoring good evidence that chelation does no good for autistic kids, that autism is not the same as heavy metal poisoning and that chelation can potentially be lethal - until, eventually, a study comes out supporting their favourite quack therapy. Then they're all over it.

So, who conducted and published this amazing research? Was it conducted by a respected centre of learning? Well, let's see.

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two studies published by theSouthwest College of Naturopathic Medicine

Hold on a minute? A college of naturopathic medicine?!

Let's have a look at their website shall we?

Naturopathic medicine blends centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in the study of health and human systems, covering all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care.

Really? What does that actually mean then? Well, apparently, it means this;

Naturopathic doctors diagnose disease and treat patients by using natural modalities such as physical manipulation, clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, counseling, acupuncture, and hydrotherapy, among others. They choose treatment based on the individual patient, not based on the generality of symptoms. This approach has proven successful in treating both chronic and acute conditions.

Ah - quackery. Magic water and back cracking. And AoA and JABS want us to take this bollocks seriously? A study put out by woos and weirdos that contradicts every previous study on the subject? Just so they can carry on making money from their favourite dangerous, useless quack remedy?

Mendacious bastards.
