Stein’s answer is deeply disturbing. She gave a long winded and evasive answer to a simple and straightforward question. As a physician, and a scientist, her answer should have been clear and unequivocal: Vaccines work; homeopathy is bullshit.

Instead, her answer is a confused and muddled hash invoking big pharma conspiracy theory buzz: a convoluted political double-speak that would make the most jaded and cynical politician proud. … Stein is pandering to the worst elements of the anti-science lunatic fringe on the far left by preserving the illusion that discredited schools of thought promoting homeopathy and questioning the safety and efficacy of vaccines may have some merit.
