She pretty much embarrassed herself, raising her voice saying (repeatedly) that there is no controversy, absolutely no controversy period over the safety of vaccines.

I feel sick thinking of all the people that put all their faith in these 'trusted' celebrity doctors.

This was the only clip I could find on the net...

Did you catch that "scientific industry" comment. What does an industry do? Make profits, I think?

She said something along the lines of "people don't go to medical school and pick out pediatrics (-atrics sounds to close to attrition to me) to get rich." No crap lady - people go to medical school to get rich, they become pedi-doctors in order to make the MOST money possible in the field! Oh, "good intentions"...ya okay. Sure. Maybe the medical type of people have some idea that "do no harm" means "as long as it's not my kids" know, this frustrates me - obviously - because I have have seen numerous reports of "well-intentioned" doctors administering "medicinal purpose" chemicals to young people and swaths of our baby folks DIE from it.

I like that comment about the guy who made a vaccine and threw the lil kids under the bus to claim it wasn't for money - did he give the money he got from his enterprise to the families whose children are or were adversely affected by his...venom? NOT LIKELY!

Hey so how do people in places where no vaccines exist live more than 10 or 20 years? I mean, these vaccines are so GD necessary! Get to them and stick them with needles before we find out!

YAH I'll bet most of the medical people study the eugenics in college and find appeal in it. How quaint.

Did you hear that Doc state "mercury in high levels is toxic", well last I heard mercury at ANY level is toxic to the human body. That lady sure has an agenda stating "vaccines are not controversial"

Interestingly enough, Dr. Snyderman mentioned twice at the beginning of her report that Dr. Offit was controversial and referenced the vaccine debate as being controversial, but then jumped all over Matt Lauer when he used the word. I don't get that one.

At any rate, it's just symantics. It IS a controversy as long as there are opposing views. And these opposing views are not just parents on one side and the medical establishment on the other. There are doctors and medical professionals who also feel that vaccines could be linked to autism as well as other complications.

If there are 16 studies out there as the report indicated, then publish them for the public to see. However, they had better provide 100% proof that there is no risk of autism if they are going to win the public's approval.

Of course, Dr. Snyderman used the worn-out scare tactic that without vaccines we would see another horrific outbreak of measles and polio. What she doesn't say is that in cases of measles reported in the US, the mortality rate is extremely low because our immune systems are stronger due to better nutrition, sanitation and medical treatment so we're able to fight off these types of diseases much better. She also didn't mention that at least 25% of children or more who contract measles have had the vaccination but get the disease anyways. So vaccines do not guarantee a child will not contract a disease.

Until there is credible proof that there is no vaccine-autism link, and so far they have not shown that proof, then parents should decide whether they would prefer the risk of a short-term illness with a low mortality rate to the risk of a child with a lifetime of autism when deciding if their kids should be vaccinated.

Hello, to whoever might be interested in further discussion, regarding Nancy Snyderman who continued to arrogantly intimidate Matt Lauer, while she stubbornly insisted that the issue of vaccines possibly linked to autism is not a CONTROVERSIAL issue :

I have appreciated reading through some of the thread discussions, so far, and since I recently emailed a note to Matt Lauer at :

A lot of females these days are using powdered formula instead of breast feeding. Recently we have been hearing of pharmaceuticals ending up in our drinking water. You need to add water to the milk formula. It would be interesting to see if women who breast feed have children who have autism or the rates in those. If a women is drinking the same contaminated water then could that end up in the breast milk? The process of elimination would be another way at finding out what is going on here.

I would also mention the chemicals in those plastic bottles. Does heating those up in the microwave to warm the milk cause a chemical leeching or chemical change. Just throwing out some ideas.

Hello, in case anyone might want to encourage Matt Lauer for his fair-minded stand against unreasonable, close-minded Nancy Snyderman, below is the email address I recently emailed a note to Matt Lauer, (typing = Attention, to Matt Lauer in the subject heading) and also below is my recent email msg. to him. Much appreciating all of your posted notes supporting him here!

Hi, Matt, ~ just wanting to commend you for your brave stand, not retracting your correct comment that there IS controversy, in regard to many people's concerns and differing opinions, related to the cause of autism, and a possible (merely "possible") link to vaccines. Of course, Dr. Snyderman doesn't have to agree that vaccines might be linked to the cause of autism, (and you certainly weren't asking her to agree on that point, nor indicating that you agree on that point) - -but myself, and others, find it very unfair, ignorant, or even arrogant of her to deny that there does exist number of people who believe they have substantial reasons to consider that vaccines might be linked to the cause of autism, thereby, Dr. Snyderman blatantly and ridiculously denies that this ongoing debate of differing opinions can possibly be considered a "controversial" issue.

A growing number of parents with autistic children have witnessed some results which have conflicted with certain medical answers, leading them to desire expanded research into the components of vaccines given to children at a very young age. Dr. Snyderman's unreasonable stubbornness to recognize that such differing opinions can be considered "controversial", as though such differing opinions are not worthy to be recognized, causes many minds to question her denial motives, - - considering that a frightful number of well-regarded doctors have allowed themselves to become paid-off and owned by the huge, money-making pharmaceutical industry.

Thanks for not caving in to her stubborn, arrogant intimidation, Matt! You stood strong to be fair, honest, and sensitive about this CONTROVERSIAL issue, (it IS controversial, while one side continues producing substantial reasons to challenge the other established side) - - while her behavior remained strangely cold, defiant, and close-minded.

My baby and I were injured by vaccines in 2007. My family will never be forced to receive a vaccine again. Vaccines can injure and vaccines can kill. If you believe the pharmaceutical companies that their products are safe, that is your perogative. In the meantime, why don't you ask the FDA why they recently held a workshop on "How to better screen for viruses, bacteria, and fungi" that are STILL making their way into vaccines despite the detection process. Pretty sick and I believe totally intentional. They just gave these vaccine-induced illnesses different names and write you a prescription for the rest of your life! Everyone in the FDA and CDC needs to be fired for putting some many at risk.

I think Nancy Snyderman should be fired for her rude and insulting words to Matt. I commend him for keeping his cool. He's a nice man. Doctors definitely do not know everything, and they're not about to admit any mistakes---and these shots are definitely a big one.

There's no doubt she should be reprimanded, but she's a famous mainstream tv doctor, doing her mainstream tv doctor job, so you know nothing's going to come of it if people don't make a big deal about it. Which they're not.

One of my friends' moms told me about when he (my friend) was a baby, and he got his first shots, saying he acted like he was possessed or dying, which isn't too far off of what I read of other peoples' first experiences with them.

Nope, no controversy there at all...
