[SaneVax: Can you imagine giving your infant 14 vaccinations every day for the first two years of their life? Dr. Paul Offit's now infamous statement about the theoretical tolerance infants have for 10,000 vaccines would require exactly that if his theory were to be tested in a clinical trial. Any volunteers?]
10,000 Crazy Vaccines, by Sandy Lunoe, VacTruth.com
There was a storm of amazement and disbelief when Dr. Paul Offit, vaccine industry insider and perhaps the most widely stated defender of vaccine safety, made the outrageous statement that each infant would have the theoretical capacity to respond to about 10,000 vaccines at any one time.
Many denounced the statement as being downright crazy, but it was soon apparent that there was method in the madness.
The words originated from Dr. Offit’s and co-authors’ article in the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics “Addressing Parents’ Concerns: Do Multiple Vaccines Overwhelm or Weaken the Infant’s Immune System?” (1)
The statement is not supported by facts. It is based on a purely theoretical calculation with no relation to reality and it should have been dismissed as having no practical application.
But it was not dismissed. On the contrary it is widely quoted completely out of context to promote concomitant administration of many vaccines.
The strategy is surely to lull parents into accepting introduction of even more vaccines in the childhood vaccination schedule, the more the merrier.
