Now I know why Becky reads Wired. Writer Amy Wallace takes a critical look at the vaccination debate in this excellent article ("An Epidemic of Fear"). Instead of relying on false balance (not all opinions are equal) to flesh out the article, Wallace looks at the research and evidence presented for the various claims. And, Wallace does not shy away from drawing conclusions based on the evidence. While long (and I know Scientific Blogging readers -or at lease the rugbyologist readers - are not faint of heart), Wallace manages to keep the human interest throughout, an area in which scientists have struggled.
