I sent them a paper that directly contradicts and cogently critiques their editorial and cites (and links, see for yourself) dozens of main stream peer reviewed papers not considered in previous safety surveys. The papers suggest huge problems, for example, that early vaccines are killing 4 US babies in 1000, and some of the biggest culprits, btw, are likely vaccines like Hep B for which there is no reasonable argument to give them so early. Their response is to refuse to consider the paper, or even send it to referees. Also, all my new citations are within the last 10 years, many within the last few years. The easiest way to see Le Bon Crowd think in the sciences: they have closed their minds (and the minds of any Pediatricians who might read my paper). When everybody assumes they are right and refuses to look at new evidence, you have crowd think for obvious reasons.
