Earlier this week I blogged about two articles that seemed to imply a kind of “connection” for my normal daily dose of high octane speculation. And today is no different, as Mr. C.S., Mr. S.D. and Mr. S.D.D. (two different people) shared two different articles, and once again, my suspicion meter is in the red zone. First, Mr. S.D.D. shared this one about a strange new malady appearing in infants around the country:
US Doctors Baffled As Rare Spinal Disease Spreads Across 22 States
US doctors baffled as rare spinal disease spreads across 22 states
When he sent this story, Mr. S.D.D. wondered if this had something to do with vaccines. Well, regular readers on this site know me well enough by now to know that I’m more than willing to crawl out to the end of the twig and speculate, and for my part, I’m willing to bet that it does. But that speculation requires a bit of clarification. I strongly suspect that it has to do not with this or that individual vaccine, but with the combined effects of the vaccine cocktails infants are now normally subjected to shortly after birth. These effects, so far as I know, have not been adequately studied, but it seems to me that such a response – which to my mind suggests an immuno-response – was to be expected eventually.
And that brings us to the story shared by Mr. C.S. and Mr. S.D.: https:
