4. Yeah, organic food. That's a good one. Frequently used.

Other anti-vaxx yahoos talk up hand-washing (which is a good preventive, don't get me wrong; but it won't do a thing to prevent the flu if you breathe in someone's sneeze-vapor.), frequent cleaning of living environment, etc.

It's a form of snobbery, I've discovered. "My clean living and just generally being an all-around fantastic person will protect me from the flu." That kind of thing.

As a practitioner of clinical medicine, I'm able to shoot down every single idiotic objection they have, until they're left with "I just don't want to", which is anti-vaxx for "I know I'm full of shit on this issue, but I'm too stupid and egotistical to admit that I'm wrong and the guy with the medical license is right."
