Jenna Jameson is the latest “celebrity” to be talking about vaccines.
And it helps explain what is going on in the modern anti-vaccine movement.
Jenna Jameson Helps Explain the Modern Anti-Vax Movement
So why is Jenna Jameson talking about vaccines?
Is it because she is vegan?
Maybe, but many vegans vaccinate themselves and their kids…
Is she just against vaccine mandates?
Sure, it is possible she just has a problem with the government telling her what to do.
But that became a less likely reason as she kept tweeting…
That vaccines can cause peanut allergies is a common anti-vax talking point. They think that it has something to do with peanut oil adjuvants, even though these peanut oil adjuvants were never actually used in any routine vaccines.
It eventually came out though.
Jenna Jameson is questioning vaccines because she feels that her child nearly died after her vaccines – from a febrile seizure.
And of course, it is bullying to try and explain that febrile seizures are not a life-threatening reaction.
So what’s the problem?
It’s not Jenna Jameson questioning vaccines or even whether or not she vaccinates her kids.
It’s her using her celebrity status to scare other parents away from vaccinating and protecting their kids.
Want to question something?
“Fevers can be caused by common childhood illnesses like colds, the flu, an ear infection, or roseola. Vaccines can sometimes cause fevers, but febrile seizures are uncommon after vaccination.”What is a febrile seizure?
Would you skip or delay your child’s vaccines, putting them at risk to get a life-threatening disease and putting others at risk, because Jenna Jameson, Rob Schneider, Kat Von D, Bill Maher, Kristin Cavallari, Lisa Bonet, or Cindy Crawford told you to?
