Kristin Cavallari revealed that she and her husband Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler did not vaccinate their son, Camden and have chosen not to vaccinate their unborn child. Cavallari made the revelation in an interview on Thursday on Fox Business’ The Independents.
The Independents’ host Kennedy said to Cavallari when they were discussing flying, “With all those sneezy people and the Jenny McCarthy’s of the world not vaccinating their babies, its crazy. Are you opposed to vaccines?”
Cavallari responded, “We didn’t vaccinate. I read too many books about autism and the studies. There’s a pediatric group called Homestead, or Home First.”
“They’ve never vaccinated any of their children and they haven’t had one case of autism. And now one in 88 boys is autistic, which is a really scary statistic.”
Kennedy told Cavallari that not only was she vaccinated but that her mother had all of her children vaccinated. To which Cavallari responded, “But the vaccinations have changed over the years, there’s more mercury and other stuff.”
Jenny McCarthy is one of the most outspoken advocates against vaccinations. In 2007 McCarthy announced that her son Evan was diagnosed with autism. McCarthy claims that her son’s autism was caused by vaccinations.
McCarthy is a spokesperson for Talk About Curing Autism. She has also fundraised for the non-profit organization in order to help families affected by autism spectrum disorders. In addition, she serves on the Board of Directors for the Generation Rescue foundation.
