My articles relating to public health, including vaccination and gun violence.
Epidemiology is a complex study, involving not only the pathogens themselves, but also the people who get sick. Human behavior as a major influence on the spread of diseases, so many of my articles focus on the human aspect. I’m also somewhat skeptical of the consensus found in medical science, not because vaccines don’t work (they do), but rather because “vaccines work” doesn’t necessarily mean what people think that it does. What do I mean by that? Learn more by reading my articles.
