It is convenient how you ignore all the work RFK Jr did to get the environment cleaned up which for sure saved many lives and improved the health of countless people. I do not agree with RFK Jr on many things but you seem to simply want to cherry pick his past to make him look as bad as possible which is ironic given that you are kind of claiming that is what he does in his medical analysis. I have said it before and I will say it again, if the medical community wants to be taken seriously again they need to stop acting like this. You really are not helping your case. People can do their own research and when they do they will likely discover all the good RFK Jr has done on the environment and realize you ignored it and wonder why. You play directly into what you claim to want to fight by acting in the way you do. Vinay Prasad has done a good job of giving RFK Jr credit when due while still calling him out when he is wrong. You, not so much.

Hi "gooch."

Doctors should be free to comment on the records of people like RFK when they insert themselves in our area of expertise. They should feel compelled actually when those insertions repeatedly involve ad hominem attacks on accomplished individuals like Fauci. RFK's statements above are egregious. The record needs to be set straight, and giving RFK's good work on the environment air time in a post about his harmful war on vaccination is a false equivalency in a different realm. I agree that much of his work protecting the environment should be celebrated, and maybe someone like Desantis could float his name as EPA director... but that won't happen. Better to float his name as someone who would monstrously undermine the FDA, and potentially harm millions of us.

Assuming you share the belief that "expertise" is an important qualification for sound advice and judgement, then courageous people like Dr. Offit almost have a solemn duty to speak up. Recall that RFK is a lawyer, who likely benefited from a legacy admission to Harvard. That's still the law of the land thanks to the Supreme Court this term by the way.

And it's a troubling state of affairs that RFK needs to be discussed as some sort of authority figure in health care at all. Read more Offit, less Prasad.

I did not say or imply that Dr Offit should not or can not comment on RFK Jr. I am simply saying he is cherry picking RFK Jr's background to make him look as bad as he possibly can which is exactly the knock on RFK Jr. If you can't see how this kind of stuff just causes more distrust in the medical community you are part of the problem. As I mentioned others have done a good job of acknowledging where RFK Jr has been correct and/or done good while still calling him out when he is wrong. What Dr Offit, and you apparently, seem to want to do is ignore the rest and then be surprised when that leads people to question what other things you might be ignoring or hiding from them. This kind of thing feeds directly into distrust and does your cause no good.

"Read more Offit, less Prasad." Enough with you now. To quote Hawkey from The Last of the Mohichans "Magua's heart is twisted. He would make himself into what twisted him."

RFK Jr should have stayed within the environmental activism niche. He is widely recognized for his achievements in that area. There’s plenty of work to be done for the environment and it’s impact on climate change. However, it is extremely unfortunate that he strayed away into topics he has literally no knowledge about and knowingly has twisted medical and health information that he spits out as venomous misinformation all for the purpose of remaining relevant and these days, to attract votes. I despise him. Not a decent human being!!!!

I don't necessarily disagree with you that he should have stayed in the field he was in before but that does not change the fact that trying to ignore all of that does not help the case here, it is counterproductive in fact.

But nearly everyone knows he was an environment advocate. Dr. Offit’s piece is focusing on the historical aspects of both, RFK Jr and Anthony Fauci, as it pertains to the word “health”. RFK Jr has caused hundreds of deaths with his poisonous rethoric. Dr. AF is a respectable human being that has been vilified and trashed horribly by people like RFK Jr.

First of all most people don't know anything about RFK Jr, get out and talk to some people, they are not informed at all on who he is or what his background is. Second, no it is not focusing on their backgrounds as it pertains to "health" or he would include the things that RFK did to help improve peoples health by getting some serious environmental problems cleaned up. This piece is trying to paint RFK Jr as having a career that has never done anything to help humanity while painting Dr Fauci as having done nothing but spend his time helping humanity. It is insincere and it has to be intentional. This is a hit piece. It is admittedly a hit piece in response to a hit piece, The Real Anthony Fauci, but it makes it no less a hit piece. This seems to be what Dr Offit wants to do with RFK Jr based on his recent posts and it is not helpful. As I quoted above "Magua's heart is twisted. He would make himself into what twisted him."

Dr Offit is free to do this sort of thing if he wishes but if you or anyone else in the medical community thinks this is going to help dissuade people from RFK Jr or win back trust for the medical establishment you are sadly mistaken and you deserve whatever distrust you get. Just look at the Dr above who's response when I point to someone doing a pretty good job of addressing RFK Jr in a way that does not just drive people away and sow more distrust. All he can say is don't listen to that guy. The medical establishment is infected with this kind of attitude and they deserve what they are getting.

Physician heal thyself... then maybe people will start to trust again.

You are entitled to your opinion, and I am to state the facts I have commented about. RFK Jr is a dangerous lunatic that attracts and wows people with his sophisticated speach. He is not even the slightest shadow of what his father and uncle were, and unfortunately he has been using their names and what they stood for as propaganda for his political benefit. RFK Jr has multiple deaths in his hands regarding his anti-vax agenda and that nobody can deny it. He twists information and spits it out as “facts” supposedly supported by scientific papers that he either does not understand or fails to interpret.

And Fauci has millions of deaths on his hands by being part of the GOF research that released the virus to begin with, not to mention all the people that died prematurely from his early AIDS treatments and all the lying about the vaccine.

Articles like this are also twisting information. You may think the ends justifies the means but I would suggest that all this kind of thing does is push more people to someone like RFK Jr. If your goal is to pull people away from him this kind of approach is the exact wrong thing to do. I get it that you think this approach is the way to go. Good luck with that is all I can say.

Fauci didn't get any of his publicly verifiable achievements with measurable results through "lying" or "incompetence". Your personal disagreements and opinions about his role during the pandemic are not objective standards of measurement.

"People can do their own research" There's that line. If people were able to do their own research they'd know that Kennedy is a grand standing grifter, without having to rely on Paul Offit and others who understand medicine.

Expand full comment

People can do their own research and many of them know nothing about RFK Jr. When they go to see who he is they are going to find that Dr Offit left out a large portion of his resume that probably saved many many lives. I can't get in his head to decide why he did that but to many it is likely to look like the same bull crap that RFK Jr does by cherry picking study data to support his narrative and he therefore loses credibility. This does not require someone to believe what RFK Jr is saying at all to determine that maybe Dr Offit is playing a similar game here and wonder why.

excellent split-screen comparison of the background and accomplishments of Dr. Fauci and RFK Jr. The lives saved or improved by Dr. Fauci's direct and indirect efforts is contrasted with the mis-/dys-information and lives endangered by the conspiracy-spewing fact-less scion of a once storied family.

Expand full comment

No amount of propaganda from bought and paid for corrupt physicians and scientists or those willing to turn a blind eye out of fear or those whose objectiveness has been overcome by cognitive bias and denial is going to change the actual facts.

Fauci and his cohorts are responsible for the death of millions of people via the gain of function research that produced the Covid virus.

They were repeatedly wrong on the developments of the pandemic, the impact of lockdowns, and other strategic handling of the pandemic.

They closed off discussion with other eminently qualified scientists and doctors that disagreed with some of how we were handling things and that ultimately seem to have been more correct even if not perfectly correct.

They repeatedly lied to the American people (noble lies or not) on the efficacy of the Covid vaccine even as real time honest data was coming out of Israel just months into the pandemic and vaccination program.

They repeatedly lied about the safety of the vaccine which was generating all sorts of red flag safety signals almost immediately and is clearly more dangerous than advertised.

They repeatedly promoted the vaccine to young healthy children and young males who were at very low risk from Covid but higher risk from the vaccine without enough testing to have a full understanding of the risk/reward (profits profits profits).

They lied about immunity from prior infection.

People talk a lot about about conspiracy theories these days.

Well, how can anyone with a functioning brain not think much of this was an elaborate way to promote mRNA technology and create hundreds of billions of dollars of profits for drug companies, media companies that get advertising dollars, the medical and scientific community etc...You are all either corrupt, idiots, or scumbags and I know you are not idiots.

My parent's generation was permanently changed by the destruction of WWII and the subsequent fear of the Soviet Union.

This generation has been permanently changed by the corruption of the medical community, drug companies, media companies, and people like Fauci. One of the great evils of world history was open and understood by everyone. This one is a little more subtle and not as well understood, but there are enough of us that do understand the facts to know that the medical community has lost the confidence of a huge percentage of people that aren't sheep and that Fauci is a corrupt, incompetent, evil man.

I'm an inconvenient TRUTH TELLER

I'm someone that paid extremely close attention to the details of the pandemic, data coming from Israel on efficacy and safety early in the pandemic and vaccination program, everything Fauci said that was a lie based on that data and well known science, data and info that has since been released on the lab leak and research in Wuhan, corruption and conflicts of interest between the FDA, drug companies, media, Fauci, and medical establishment etc.. and I'm sick and tired of all these terrible human being getting away with it.

If people want to point out the problems with RFK Jr and the errors he's made regarding vaccines and on health in general, I have no problem with that. However, don't defend Fauci!!

Fauci had a role in creating this pandemic, mishandled it badly, lied to the American people repeatedly, had a role in censoring other eminently qualified doctors and scientists that disagreed with him, had suspect motives for using mRNA vaccines, benefited financially, and has many conflicts of interest.
