Supporting quackery as a disservice to their public. Namely Jenny McCarthy, the comedian turned down home public health expert…by being allowed to make claims of scientific achievement without showing any scientific proof. Instead the emotional “my son is my proof” line is enough for her to be held above any medical or biology expert.
Fitzgerald, an acupuncturist with a master’s degree in traditional Chinese medicine and a doctorate in homeopathic medicine, is the author of “The Detox Solution: The Missing Link to Radiant Health, Abundant Energy, Ideal Weight, and Peace of Mind.” Her posts had praised actress Jenny McCarthy for healing her son’s autism with “biomedical intervention,” a menu of “detoxification, and removal of interfering factors, such as yeast, food allergies, viruses, bacteria, and heavy metals,” restrictive diets, expensive nutritional supplements and chelation therapy — all unproven.
The weirdness of accepting this is ridiculous. To combat a vaccine, you change a child’s diet. So since a child eats different food and feels better, it must be the vaccine that caused the problem? McCarthy’s son may have benefitted from other autism therapies, good for them, but it is homeopathic garbage which spits in the face of real medicine.
Meanwhile, in reality families who decide not to vaccinate their children can be thanked for helping to bring back the measles in the United States. But they are thouroughly cleansed. great.
