On this October 1 edition James speaks with Barbara Loe Fisher. She is president and co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, a non-profit charity established in 1982. For the past three decades, Barbara has led a national, grassroots movement and public information campaign to institute vaccine safety reforms and informed consent protections in the public health system.
She has researched, analyzed and publicly articulated the major issues involving the science, policy, law, ethics and politics of vaccination to become one of the world’s leading non-medical, consumer advocacy experts on the subject.
Barbara is co-author of the seminal book DPT: A Shot in the Dark (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich 1985); author of The Consumer’s Guide to Childhood Vaccines (1997); Vaccines, Autism & Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic (2008) and Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law: A Guide (2014). She is also a video commentator for the NVIC Newsletter and Mercola Newsletter, and a blogger at www.VaccineAwakening.blogspot.com. Barbara’s long public record of vaccine safety and informed consent advocacy was featured in the 2011 award winning film documentary, The Greater Good.
