celebrity + charity + global relief:
Jenny McCarthy Speaks Up on Oprah On Link Between Vaccines and Autism

Hats off to actress Jenny McCarthy for her courage in speaking up on Oprah Winfrey today regarding her belief that the staggering rates of autism in children today (1 in 150, and 1 in 94 boys) is linked to vaccinations.

McCarthy expressed that her son Evan had developed autism in what she believed was a reaction to an MMR shot he received just before his second birthday.

Although the medical community refuses to link vaccinations to the growing number of autistic children, celebrities such as Jenny McCarthy are doing a lot of good by raising this heated debate to the public arena. Thank you Jenny !
