He also doesn’t have the faintest idea how the VAERS database works. Meehan has tried to argue that the HPV vaccine is confirmed to have caused 144 deaths (by 2013), because there are 144 reports of death associated with the HPV vaccine in the VAERS database. This is not how the database works (indeed). “It absolutely is evidence,” says Meehan. It isn’t evidence.
But he does know how to parrot standard anti-vaccine claims, and his rants have been relatively widely distributed on social media by people who do not know anything about vaccines or actually bother with the evidence either; most of them is a combination of the claim that infectious diseases aren’t dangerous, toxins gambits – admittedly effective on the chemically illiterate – and conspiracy mongering: the science behind vaccines is untrustworthy because scientists are uniformly corrupt and bought by Big Pharma, who would actually benefit vastly more from hospitalizations due to vaccine-preventable diseases than from vaccines, but like all good conspiracy theories this one requires that you don’t look too closely. There is a thorough takedown of his claims here. Meehan has also been caught supporting the debunked idea that physical trauma and child abuse are “vaccine injury”.
Diagnosis: Aggressive lunatic and unhinged conspiracy theorist. Stay far away.

Why does he claim to be a surgeon?Delete
He is an M.D. alright, but not the kind you and I would automatically think of.. He is an opthamologist He has EYES on things he is not expert in it seems.Delete
Just curious (I claim no expertise myself): What specific claims in his anti-mask argument have been refuted? (Thanks in advance.)Delete
In one interview Dr Meehan mentioned something about feeling like his Christian faith was under attack. I'd like to see more investigation done into his political and religious affiliations - which I suspect inform his opinions more than science and medicine.ReplyDelete
You want to take a man of faith down? What is wrong with you? Maybe if you had faith you wouldn't need him. He helped us enormously and was loving to my adult special needs son. Gosh guess you would ratherr discriminate and deal with ugly. Good luch. You need God!!Delete
How do you name callers, that discriminated against Dr, Meehan feel now that Fauci is a proven LIAR!! Oh yes you drank the kool-aid or should I say "the science" provided by Fauci and his gang, followed along and now like all the other sheep over the cliff you go!!ReplyDelete
