Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey Fight Autism With Green Our Vaccines

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Being a celebrity has its crappy parts: ruthless paparazzi, scandalous gossip columns, sketchy yes men. But as we like to prove here at Ecorazzi, being in the limelight also has its advantages — like using your power for good and adding credibility to a cause you believe in.

Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey are on a mission to spread awareness about the rise in autism by leading the Green Our Vaccines march and rally in Washington, D.C., today.

Here’s a little brain candy: in 1960 children in the U.S received 5 vaccinations. By 2007 the number had reached 24 vaccine injections to protect against 16 different diseases. That’s a lot of frigin chemicals! The Green Our Vaccines initiative calls for the elimination of toxins from children’s vaccines and to change children’s vaccination schedules.

Today in America 1 out of every 150 children are diagnosed with autism and many parents believe that the increase in childhood vaccination is to blame. Jenny McCarthy and Carrey said that while they do support immunization, they and their allies believe children receive “too many vaccines, too soon, many of which are toxic.”

What do you think Ecorazzi readers? Are kids getting overly vaccinated at too young of an age? Are all those chemicals contributing to the rise in autism? Grab that keyboard and let us know what you think!

    I find it funny that Jenny McCarthy blames vaccines for her child’s health and yet she didn’t even breastfeed her son. Studies show that infant formulas contain more aluminum and toxins than a vaccine shot. The soy formulas are especially bad, because they have even more aluminum in them, not to mention phytates that suck minerals and nutrients from the body. I wonder if that had more to do with her son’s seizures than the vaccines. And now, he no longer has seizures. She claimed that his autism was cured! Hmmm could it have been the crap she was feeding him on a day to day basis?

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
