Was Dr. Tenpenney always a quack, like when she was the board-certified head of the emergency department at Blanchard Valley Regional Hospital Center in Findlay, Ohio, and handed out tetanus shots like candy (her own admission)? Or did she only become a quack because she had the audacity to question the safety of vaccines? Just wondering.

I don't waste my time on quackery....

I have read many, many reputable texts, journals, articles etc on immunology.

I would be more than happy to recommend some to you if you would like to truly understand the science behind vaccination....

Or you can rely on the equivalent of supermarket tabloid journalism which is what Tenpenny is selling....

You'd be surprised.

Glad I could clear that up for you....

By the way, how does being an emergency medicine physician at the "world renowned" Blanchard Valley Regional Medical Center make one an "expert" on vaccines???

She is a washed up osteopath who is no longer board certified in emergency medicine and apparently no longer practices medicine of any kind...

Apparently she does quite well on the rubber chicken circuit spreading her falsehoods about vaccines....she apparently supports herself via her book and speaking engagements....no conflict of interest there

A quick scan of her CV shows no specialized training in immunology or infectious diseases....ever...not even a little...helps to have a "little" training in subject if you want to pass yourself off as an expert....

Nothing even remotely impressive about her CV for that matter, apparently she does have a knack for self promotion however and she has managed to touch a nerve with the more scientifically illiterate segment of the US population....

So how can we trust our children's pediatricians' who have no specialized training in immunology. Are they all quacks too?

... and I'll wager she's making more money now selling the anti-vax than she ever earned as a board certified doctor...

OH MY! I didn’t receive e-mail notification of all these 16 pages of replies on my posting until today for some reason. All I can say is some of you have too much time on your hands! Thanks to all who posted genuine help though.
