TV Star Mayim Bialik she has a P.H.D in NeuroScience will not vaccinate her kids


Mayim Bialik is well known for her TV roles as Blossom and now on Big Bang Theory. What may not be as well-known is she has a doctorate in neuroscience. This means that she is considered an expert on the nervous system, specifically OCD connected to Prader-Willi Syndrome. She has a pretty liberal lifestyle, but she should still understand the need for a healthy life, which is why it is interesting that she will not vaccinate her two children. This is a growing trend and is not a political issue, as there are people all over the spectrum that is starting to think this way.

In a recent interview with People, this is what Mayim Bialik had to say:
“Reader N.S. remembers reading about your contemplating whether or not to vaccinate the kids. What decision did you reach?
We are a non-vaccinating family, but I make no claims about people’s individual decisions. We based ours on research and discussions with our pediatrician, and we’ve been happy with that decision, but obviously there’s a lot of controversy about it.”
Possible reasons
Here is what the CDC has to say about Thimerosal, one of the preservatives used in vaccines.
Thimerosal is a mercury-containing preservative used in some vaccines and other products since the 1930′s. There is no convincing evidence of harm caused by the low doses of thimerosal in vaccines, except for minor reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site. However, in July 1999, thePublic Health Service agencies, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and vaccine manufacturers agreed that thimerosal should be reduced or eliminated in vaccines as a precautionary measure.”
Her stances
Now Mayim Bialik seems to have become controversial because she wants a cleaner sort of parenting. She doesn’t want all the chemicals and mainstream style of handling kids. She is well spoken and educated, so there could be a basis in what she says. It could also be that what is taught as “normal” is not always the best practice, as seen in the public school system.
