No, not that McCarthy. I'm talking about celebrity Jenny McCarthy, who has been very vocal about her stance against the use of the MMR vaccine because of a bogus report of a potential link to autism. As a fellow mother, I really do sympathize with her in her desire to understand and conquer the horrible disease that has afflicted her little boy.
But wait... it turns out that Ms. McCarthy injects her face with "the most poisonous substance known".
Ms. McCarthy has recently confessed to using Botox on occasion. Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a poisonous toxin made by Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It causes a paralytic disease that can result in respiratory failure and death.
Here's the irony: Ms. McCarthy uses Botox despite the fact that it has been denounced by the FDA as a wrinkle remedy. And yet she rejects the use of the FDA-approved MMR vaccine that has saved millions of lives worldwide.
I wonder what she thinks about tainted peanut butter.
