Dachel Wake Up: Dr. Ari Zaretsky to Debate Andrew Wakefield's Research with Journalist Lawrence Solomon
By Anne Dachel
January 31, 2017, Canadian journalist to debate Andrew Wakefield's research with Toronto psychiatrist, Dr. Ari Zaretsky
It was a detailed description of Donald Trump's views when it comes to vaccine safety issue and why it's a cause for concern.
He ended the piece with this: "Trump believes his presidency places him at the head of an historic movement, 'a beautiful movement. We are going to make America safe and great again.' Making America safe doesn’t just involve building a wall to keep out criminals and terrorists, he believes. To Trump, it also includes making sure that there’s safety in America’s vaccines."
At the end of the piece, Solomon announced that he was going to debate the controversy surrounding Dr. Andrew Wakefield's research linking the MMR vaccine to autism with a prominent physician in Toronto on January 31, 2017.
This, of course, is incredible news for parents in the autism community, as well as for the general public.
Dr. Zaretsky, in addition to being a professor at the University of Toronto and chief psychiatrist at one of Canada's leading hospitals, will also be furthering his mandate as Vice President, Education. The public can only benefit by hearing informed views that will, hopefully, dispel myths that harm our children.
I thank both Dr. Zaretsky and Lawrence Solomon for having this credible conversation.
Lawrence Solomon is a columnist with Financial Post (Canada) and the executive director of Energy Probe.
The debate will be free for those who want to attend.
Solomon has written some in-depth articles about the vaccine safety and about the controversial link to autism.
