In my recent post about Jim Carrey's nonsense, BA commenter Todd W. posted an excellent response with all sorts of data about vaccine safety. Urged by other commenters, he has posted this online at Anti antivax. What it amounts to is a must-read FAQ about vaccines and the claims of the antivaxxers. Given the nonsense and outright lies spouted by commenters in every antivax post I make, I strongly urge everyone to read that page first before commenting here. Considering what's at stake -- babies are dying -- if you're an antivaxxer it's the very least you can do before urging people to put their childrens' lives, and those of others, at stake. The lies must stop.

Tip o' the needle to Skeptic Dad.
