Vaccine article missing some key points

Wondering where Smith-Bakhache's views came from



I was disappointed Lezlie Lowe's column this week ("Anti antigen," The Lowe Files, November 5) on Rachael Smith-Bakhache didn't include some critical elements. What are her religious beliefs? How was she brought up? Why does she have these views (other than hating processed, sugar-laden foods)?

This lady sounds sadly misinformed and her Luddite beliefs pose a danger to the rest of our community. These vaccinations are not for the healthy, they are for those who have compromised health situations.

At the end of your article this lady admits that a friend of hers is going to be outraged. This implies she had not told her friend and I would speculate that is because her friend would have told her she's crazy for putting her children's safety at risk so she can make a stubborn point about the overprocessing of food.
