Epidemiology professor addresses anti-vaccination statements

In the below interview conducted three years ago, professor of epidemiology at Kent State University’s College of Public Health Dr. Tara Smith addresses statements made by people who oppose the widespread use of vaccines. In a recent article published in Oxford Press’ Open Forum Infectious Diseases a few days ago, she calls upon her colleagues in the scientific community to promote vaccination by speaking out.

The efforts of anti-vaccine activists are an extension of the green movement’s holy war (i.e. jihad) to eradicate human life from the face of the Earth. With populations of people (like Muslim immigrants) who can be easily manipulated, it enables the spread and even mutation of diseases to spread among populations to infect and even kill. What better way to kill off people by lying about preventive health measures like immunizations.
