Brief note: a new vaccine mythbuster site appears

Vaccines are probably the single greatest advance in public health ever invented. Despite their enormous benefits, and the overwhelming evidence in their favor (we've wiped out smallpox and nearly wiped out polio), anti-vaccine activists continue to spread rumors and wildly inaccurate, but scary tales about the potential harms of vaccines.

Today a new website was published, a collection of 100 other sites that provide good information on the benefits of vaccines, and that bust many of the most damaging anti-vaccine myths.  This site is on the list, but you'll find many other excellent sources of good science about vaccines.  We need every bit of help we can get to counter the mis-information about vaccines promoted by groups such as Generation Rescue and Age of Autism.
