C'est la guerre. French Nobel Prize winner Dr. Luc Montaigne was criticized for his discussion of vaccine safety. In Europe, just as here in America, when you question vaccine safety or vaccine side effects, you are considered "alarmist." Mustn't allow Mama to do her own thinking for her baby after all, oui? This article below is particularly noxious in its tone and derision.

Professors Luc Montagnier and Henri Joyeux held a press conference against vaccination in a Parisian theater on November 7, 2017. Their alarmist and unfounded comments were vigorously denounced by the academies of science, medicine and pharmacy.
It was a funny duet that held the poster of the Michel Theater in Paris on November 7, 2017. On one side, Professor Luc Montagnier. On the other, Professor Henri Joyeux. The first is a virologist, Nobel Prize in Medicine, member of the Academy of Sciences and the Academy of Medicine. The second, a former professor of oncology, specialist in digestive surgery, is also laureate of the Antoine Lacassagne cancer prize awarded by the National League against Cancer. Two impressive CVs that unfortunately do not immunize against the virus of pseudoscience. Indeed, the two accomplices had made an appointment "to the journalists of the press health, well-being and society" to tell them all the harm they thought of vaccines. This, a few months from the passage of three to eleven of the number of compulsory vaccines in children.
If from the beginning of the conference, they said loud and clear not to be opposed to vaccination it was only to better undermine its foundations thereafter. "We risk with vaccines to poison little by little all the population that will succeed us, children, babies," for example, launched Luc Montagnier in an attack of alarmist fever. "We are entering a kind of vaccine dictatorship ..." Henry Joyeux claimed on his side. Problem: most of their arguments are based on untruths, bias reasoning or misinformation, all against the background of conspiracy theory.
With the help of Professor Brigitte Autran of the Pierre and Marie Curie Faculty of Medicine in Paris, a vaccine specialist, we have tried to decipher the main arguments put forward by Professors Montagnier and Joyeux. An exercise that at times proved difficult or even impossible in some cases, both the sources and the scientific references were lacking in their words:
Vaccines may be responsible for sudden infant death.
