In addition to other strategies, most of which seem to be in President Obama's plan, the AMA and 51 other medical organizations have said that "renewing and strengthening the assault weapons ban, including banning high-capacity magazines, would be a step in the right direction."

As a Senator, you would think that Dr. John Barrasso would agree with them.

An IOM report confirms what most pediatricians and parents already knew to be true - the report did not find any evidence "that the U.S. childhood immunization schedule is linked to autoimmune diseases, asthma, hypersensitivity, seizures, child developmental disorders, learning or developmental disorders, or attention deficit or disruptive disorders." #vaccines

Also remember that "children can cope more effectively with a disaster when they feel they understand what is happening and what they can do to help protect themselves, family, and friends. Provide basic information to help them understand, without providing unnecessary details that may only alarm them."

Did the Facebook organ donor thing, although I'm pretty sure I have it in my living will and on my drivers license.

Gave me the idea for Facebook to show your/our vaccination status too. It may boost vaccination levels, which would be good with the increasing rates of measles and pertussis we are seeing these days.

And you can actually already do it. Add Life Event > Health & Wellness > Other Life Event... => Tdap #vaccines to #facebook if you are protected. You can add other vaccines too or add your kids' vaccines when they get them.
