Ben Carson closes in on Donald Trump in latest poll

Donald Trump gestures while speaking during Wednesday’s GOP presidential debate.


And the potential fallout from that exchange has infectious-disease experts anxious .

When the lights go up on the second Republican presidential debate Wednesday night, at least one thing is certain: This time, Dr. Ben Carson won’t be ignored.

Bill Richardson, head of the political science at the University of South Dakota, said many Republicans have been hesitant to comment publicly about Trump “for good reason”. “There’s nobody who knows everything“. “It’s not surprising there would be some pushback”.

Each day, it appears Ben Carson is getting closer to stealing the Republican ticket from frontrunner Donald Trump.

“Vaccines do not cause autism”.

A 2009 study found that up to a third of doctors actually lose money when giving vaccines. “Any claim that an excessive number of vaccines can “overwhelm” the immune system is false and not supported by any scientific evidence or, for that matter, even any biological plausibility”, Schleiss said. A renowned Johns Hopkins physician and conservative folk hero, Carson has capitalized on his lack of political experience, riding a wave of voter discontent up the Republican 2016 polls.

“I’m also a little concerned about how they’re bunched up”. Added Paul, who’s traveled down this road before: “I’m all for vaccines”.

Trump, Carson and Bush bring different strengths to the race.

Trump then said, “That’s all I’m saying”.

All states require children to be vaccinated in order to attend public schools, with very religious or health exemptions.

Starting with their trip down the birth canal, babies are confronted with millions of bacteria on a daily basis, Duchin said.

These two contrasting approaches are about more than just campaign strategy. Dr. Michael Artigues – a McComb, Mississippi, pediatrician – is one of about 300 members of the American College of Pediatricians who, because they oppose gay adoption and abortion, left the prestigious American Academy of Pediatrics.

Vaccines are very precisely manufactured to include only what is absolutely necessary to induce enough of an immune response that the body can protect itself against those diseases.

“This is the first time I have heard a presidential candidate speak about something that is really important and has gotten out of control”, said Mario DiPasquale.

The turning point came when she forced Carson and his brother to read two books each week and submit book reports to her – even though she could not read them. So a smaller dose wouldn’t protect a child.

The New York Times has little except for a line in Gail Collins” column and an item by Margot Sanger-Katz in its liveblog. He’s not a deal maker, and we need somebody in this country that’s gonna get rid of the $19 trillion in debt. My mom’s not happy that I just did. In his most specific proposal, he reiterated his support for raising the minimum wage and suggested it should be tied to inflation “so that we never have this conversation again“.

Sears, the medical choice advocate, pointed to the recent Disneyland measles outbreak, saying it illustrated that parents should have some wiggle room when it comes to the immunization schedule.


“The outbreak did not spread almost as far as it should have, and it was quickly contained”, Sears said. I also understand it if a privileged black person doesn’t truly get it. But when someone who grew up on the rough side doesn’t seem to remember, it makes me wonder whether he’s suffering from a form of selective amnesia.
