Celebumom Jenny McCarthy and boyfriend Jim Carrey led a march in Washington DC on Wednesday to raise awareness about toxins in vaccines. McCarthy, who chronicled her son’s battle with autism in her book “Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism” (Dutton), has been fairly outspoken about her concerns about the link between childhood vaccines and autism.
Citing childhood vaccines as a likely contributing factor to the rise in childhood autism and possibly other diseases as well, the actress and TACA (Talk About Curing Autism) are most concerned with the
schedule of childhood vaccines and preservatives added to the vaccines.
The Green our Vaccines campaign attributes a rise in childhood autism to an increased number of vaccines, coupled with chemicals used in them that may cause severe neurological problems to a small minority.
