As both a practitioner and a parent, I was excited to see an article in The ASHA Leader (Nov. 22, 2011) on protecting children from toxicants. The information on neurotoxicants as well as an infant’s susceptibility in the article was outlined perfectly. But not one single mention of vaccines in this article? Their contribution to the incidence of developmental disabilities? It was almost comical to see a section in the article about the proven adverse effects of mercury, yet no mention of its presence in both past and present vaccinations. Advising parents to steer clear of thermometers, light bulbs, and seafood isn’t the answer. A clear, honest, open dialogue about the neurotoxicants our society is knowingly injecting into our children is what is needed, not an article that picks and chooses which toxicants to describe. Highly disappointed.
