This would be why you shouldn’t receive your medical advice from Playboy centerfolds. For YEARS, Jenny McCarthy has been the most vocal anti-vaccine spokesperson in the world. McCarthy had claimed (despite all evidence to the contrary) that childhood vaccines had caused her young son’s autism.

Now in a stunning article in Time magazine, it’s revealed that McCarthy’s son NEVER had autism in the first place. It turns out the boy had been misdiagnosed and really has a rare neurological disorder. Fortunately, the child is getting better and no longer displays any signs of autism. However, McCarthy has not apologized for her misdirected zealotry against having children vaccinated. Even if she did, APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED.

How many thousands and thousands of children have developed childhood diseases because their idiot mothers saw Jenny McCarthy on Oprah or some other show and refused to get them vaccinated? We’ll never know. What IS known is the CDC literally called McCarthy “a menace to public health.”

I found this out last year. I can't believe the stores still carry her books. I found one on a book shelf the other day and just thought to myself "I hope nobody buys this"

I've been telling everyone for awhile. No one has believed it.

I had heard about this a while back. I don't care much for her. When DS was first diagnosed with autism, friends would tell me to "check out Jenny McCarthy's books". Um yeah, no thanks.

I believe it was a post about her before and you or someone else commented on her son not having autism. I went and read the article in Time magazine and found out it was true he never had it

Why does this not surprise me? I mean, it's not like it's really her fault...if he was misdiagnosed. I mean, it wasn't an intentional "my kid has this" when she knew he didn't...but her crap with the vaccines...yea...

The articles linked on that blog are from 2010, but I didn't see them until today.

Here's one of those links:  http://hollywoodlife.com/2010/02/26/jenny-mccarthy-says-her-son-evan-never-had-autism/

That gets complicated.

If one's child now fxns as to appear "normal", what might they do to lose the label for their kid?

Lose it for a lifetime?
