The rise of vaccine-preventable illnesses, such as measles and hepatitis, in the United States and around the globe has been alarming in recent years. For women — especially those hoping to become pregnant, as well as women who are pregnant or have recently had a baby — vaccines can be a worrisome topic. There are many misconceptions about vaccine safety in and around pregnancy that can lead to confusion and unnecessary fear of a lifesaving medical tool.

Conclusions: This is the first study of its kind to provide evidence that receiving childhood immunizations may be protective against RMS risk. Although the effect estimates suggested a possible protective role of childhood infections against RMS risk, these findings were not statistically significant. Future studies will be needed to further evaluate the role of immunizations and childhood infections in the development of this tumor.Citation Format: Hari Sankaran, Heather Danysh, Michael E.

When the nation turned our eyes to watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve, we saw actress and former Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy urging viewers to kiss her on our TV screens. Thousands of people did, and sent her pictures to prove it. That's the nature of being a celebrity, possessing the ability to influence other people's behavior, and therein lies its potential for abuse. The idea that vaccines cause autism has been found to be totally false by doctors and scientists, in the same way almost all sane observers agree global warming is manmade. But thanks to anti-vaccine misinformation spread by some...
