Feb 18, 2015, HealthImpactNews.com: Arizona Cardiologist Responds to Critics Regarding Measles and Vaccines
Feb 17, 2015, NewsMax: Questions Remain About MMR Vaccine
I recently did an interview which was aired on NBC Phoenix. I was asked my opinion on vaccinations in response to the current measles outbreaks that have occurred at Disneyland in California. My reply has generated quite a bit of anger in thousands of people.
If you Google this title, you'll see that dozens and dozens of sites have also put out this story.
Dr. Wolfson has been very outspoken about the risks associated with vaccination and very critical of media attacks on non-vaccinating parents. His views have generated a vitriolic wave in the press.
Here is Dr. Wolfson's response. His advice is for people to redirect their angry at the companies and individuals who deserve it. There is a lot of food for thought here.
Until we know the truth from the CDC, parents can't know for certain whether or not the MMR vaccine is safe to give their children.
I've had too many parents tell me that their children were healthy until receiving a vaccine - often the MMR vaccine. Later the children developed regressive autism.
In fact, a vaccine injury court was established to compensate people who have suffered adverse effects from vaccines.
If vaccines are safe, why do we need a court? Until these questions are answered, how can you fault a parent for questioning the safety of the MMR vaccine
It is amazing that NewsMax gives this forum to Dr. Brownstein.
NewsMax has been very vocal with a mixed message on vaccines lately.
I've written about it:

Feb 10, 2015, (EXCELLENT!!) NewsMax . Thank you, Dr. Brownstein!
Feb 12, 2015, NewsMax can't get their story straight when it comes to vaccine safety.
Here Dr. Brownstein defends Andrew Wakefield, talks about the whistleblower and cites the unanswered safety questions. I hope the news people at NewsMax see this!
