My immune system read Shakespeare at 2 weeks

Awesome! Rene (who works in public health in my beloved home state of Maryland) has a great post on why immune systems can’t be “immature”: Does your immune system tell fart jokes and pull pranks?

The argument that vaccines are dangerous because it’s “too much, too soon” has always seemed illogical, but I didn’t have the biology background to explain why. Happily, Rene does 🙂

  1. Thanks for the “mad props”!

    I can never figure out why people who believe in strengthening the immune system by exposure to, say, flu and chicken pox in their original forms, can straightfacedly claim to be so worried about exposing kids to dead vaccines because it’s a strain on the immune system.

    (On the other hand, when we have doctors saying, “Your [healthy] twins were born at 37 weeks in November, you shouldn’t take them out in public until the flu season is over” you understand why people believe in ‘fragile immune systems’. *headdesk* )
