Page Rank Gone Bad--Google and Vaccination Information
Posted by Clark Venable on 1/4/2007
Medgadget brings up an important issue today. Using Google to search for information on vaccinations does tends to return anti-vaccination 'propaganda.'
"Google's search for 'vaccination' returns 10 results on its first page. Of them, two are from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). One result from Wikipedia that has some questionable statements , such as "...the overall effect might, in theory, be to cause more deaths than before the vaccination was introduced." The remaining seven results are from vaccination-haters and moonbats that accuse governments, pharmaceutical companies, the medical lobby, you name it, of untold millions of dead children. The second page of the vaccination search is even worse."
I didn't have any personal experience with families not immunizing their children until this year when I became a Cub Scout leader.
