When I came home today I found a message from my sister in Stockholm
excitedly telling me that our mother dominated Thursday's front page of
Sweden's largest newspaper, Dagens Nyheter (Daily News). She instructed me
to go to the paper's home page and click on the Thursday front page. The
opens a pdf-file with Thursday's front page. I guess this file will stay at
this link until next Thursday. I have prepared a pdf file with the whole
page plus a close-up I can send on request.
All I have been able to read so far is the caption and the text on the
first page. (I cannot access the newspaper's archives for the complete
article). I look forward to reading the rest of the story. The picture
shows my mother being interviewed at her table in her home in Liding�, a
suburb of Stockholm.
BTW, our house in Valencia is now sold. We are staying with our daughter
and son-in-law in Palo Alto. Our established phone number is forwarded to
our office here. We will broadcast new address and phone numbers when we
have found a home somewhere here in the San Francisco bay area. As before,
I will address you all in the Bcc: field. That keeps the front end short
Vaccine a blessing.
Children's dentist Greta Forssell once handled all the special education
children in Gothenburg, Sweden. She remembers with horror the time when
measles and other childhood diseases ravaged. She is hard pressed to
understand those who choose not to vaccinate their children.
Vaccine does not cause autism
Suspicions regarding serious risks using triple vaccines for children are
unfounded, major study shows.
THE COMBINATION VACCINE against measles, mumps and rubella that is
administered to children does not cause autism, the biggest study to date
of this issue shows. More than half a million children were included in the
Suspicions that MMR-vaccine might cause autism were raised by a British
pediatrician four years ago. Since then, the number of Swedish children who
are not getting vaccinated has risen substantially.
Children's dentist Greta Forssell, 94, remembers the way it was in the old
days, before vaccines became available.
"I don't understand how people dare not to vaccinate their children now
that it can be done."

Vaccinet en v�lsignelse.
Barntandl�kare Greta Forssell hade hand om alla s�rskolebarn i G�teborg och
hon minns med fasa den tid d� m�ssling och andra barnsjukdomar h�rjade. Hon
har sv�rt att f�rst� dem som v�ljer att inte vaccinera sina barn.
Vaccin ger inte autism
Misstankarna om allvarliga risker med trippelvaccin f�r barn �r ogrundade,
visar stor studie.
DET KOMBINATIONSVACCIN mot m�ssling, p�ssjuka och r�da hund som ges till
barn orsakar inte autism visar den st�rsta unders�kning som hittills gjorts
i �mnet. �ver en halv miljon barn har ing�tt i den danska studien.
Misstanken att MPR-vaccin skulle kunna orsaka autism v�cktes av en brittisk
barnl�kare f�r fyra �r sedan. Sedan dess har antalet barn som inte
vaccineras stigit kraftigt i Sverige.
Barntandl�karen Greta Forssell, 94 �r, minns hur det var f�rr, innan
- Jag f�rst�r inte hur folk v�gar l�ta bli att vaccinera sina barn nu n�r
