Russel Blaylock, MD is listed on Quackwatch because of his stance on certain immunizations. Dr. Blaylock believes that many immunizations are dangerous and claims that science-based medicine is not interested in preventing diseases.
Blaylock has made claims stating that some vaccines are more dangerous than the diseases they prevent. For example, he says the swine flu vaccine contains squalene, a substance that is naturally produced by the body that allows less of an antigen to be used in a vaccine. There is no evidence to suggest squalene resides in vaccines, and if it did, it is beneficial to the human body. Dr. Blaylock claims that squalene is linked to Gulf War Syndrome, even though no soldier who fought in the Gulf War ever received a vaccine containing squalene.
