  •  Re vaccines, not much liability (2+ / 0-)

    The federal government created the Childhood Vaccine Act years ago that transfers to the taxpayers liability for injuries due to vaccines to keep big Pharma producing vaccines.  If your child develops symptoms attributable to a vaccination, you have to sue in vaccine court and you have to meet strict standards, such as your child has to have developed the symptoms within a couple of days.  Few people recover damages or even know about the vaccine court.

      has done is make it next to impossible to even discuss (or get funding to research) any potential harm from vaccines.

      It's like the "mind control" stupidity from the Birchers concerning fluoride, which made it almost impossible to be taken seriously when discussing the upper safe limits for fluoride in our drinking water (reduced substantially in 2012, about 30 years after the evidence was clear).
