Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: Quack

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is taking out anti-vaccine ads promoting scientifically unsupported fearmongering and conspiracy theories. Since we’ve been featuring quacks, we’ll point out how this former dropout, heroin-user, and philanderer is damaging and even killing children by scaring their parents into avoiding vaccinations against formerly-common childhood diseases, which are now returning as more and more children go unprotected — especially in wealthy, “organic” communities like Marin County, California.

Slate has good coverage of his recent activities.
