Sometimes reality is just stranger than fiction. Consider Mark Geier. He’s the doctor whose license has been suspended in Maryland for his treatment of autistic children with Lupron. He’s been a regular expert witness in the vaccine court for something like 20 years. He’s got multiple papers out on the dangers of mercury in vaccines.
Think that’s enough to please the vaccines-cause-autism crowd? Think again.
...you’re wrong on that one…. from personal experience having dinner with Dr. Geier….he has no problem with the vaccines other than mercury. He told me to my face at dinner that he gave his patients the H1N1 vaccine last year (Hg free of course). Sorry, but that is from personal experience….he’s a hack in my book.
Yep. Giving vaccines makes one a hack. Treating faux precocious puberty, not so much.
...thanks for saying that…I detected he was a vaccine lover.
Yep, he’s a “vaccine lover”. Mark Geier. That’s his failing.
... I know I’ll probably make some enemies over this but I call em’ as I see em’ and this was NOT hearsay. He told me that to my face at dinner…I got up, called him a moron and didn’t come back to finish my dinner. I fumed all night!
Well, there you have it. Tell the wrong people you gave vaccinations and you are a hack, a “moron” and you make people lose their appetite.
The world never ceases to amaze.
I call bullshit on the dinner party conversation. Sounds like two 12 year olds chatting in the schoolyard.
what Sharon says...
That would be Curt Linderman, who hosts an AutismOne radio show. I'm sure Dr. Geier will be amused to read Linderman's version of the dinner conversation.
I was able to see the exchange on Facebook.
The "personal experience having dinner with Dr. Geier" and the "I got up, called him a moron and didn’t come back to finish my dinner" comments were from , and the "I detected he was a vaccine lover" was from , who went on to write:
tell him to ignore SV40 and XMRV and mycoplasma...as well as the other neurotoxic ingredients too...once you do that, all parts of vaccines don't make sense!...he [Geier] wrote me one time asking for why I believe all parts of vaccines can cause autism. I gave him tons of abstracts, as well as a direct quote from Dr Judy Mikovits (XMRV guru), and he didn't email back...yep...
"I call bullshit on the dinner party conversation. Sounds like two 12 year olds chatting in the schoolyard."
I have two points:
 12-year old also eat dinner.
 I've met a number of ("neurotypical") people who are chronologically adults but emotionally (and behaviorally) pre-adolescents.
Since the "vaccines-cause-autism" movement seems to preferentially attract the people described in , this exchange seems perfectly plausible to me.
