Kate Winslet Pumped Breast Milk During L.A. Earthquake

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

The actress Kate Winslet told Ellen DeGeneres that she spent Tuesday’s L.A. earthquake pumping breast milk for her baby, Bear Blaze.  More from USA Today:

“I’m sitting in the hotel here in L.A. and I’m pumping because I have a 14-week-old baby. I’m here for 48 hours. I couldn’t bring him. It’s too far. It’s a 12-hour plane ride,” she says.

“And so I’m pumping, staring at my beautiful picture of my beautiful baby boy and my husband’s on the other line and the room starts to shake. So, I said, ‘I’ve got to go.’ ”

She ran to the door frame “with my friend who was with me and she’s like, ‘It’s an earthquake. Don’t worry (sound of pump) it’s passing see, it’s passing. It’s gonna pass (sound of pump). See, it’s past, see it’s almost gone.”

Winslet wound up pumping through the entire thing. “You know us girls we just do it, don’t we?” Winslet told the studio audience.

Kristin Cavallari Comes Out as Anti-Vaccine

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Kristin Cavallari, a former reality TV star who is expecting her second son, has gone public with her decision to refrain from vaccinating her children, saying she’s “read too many books” about autism and citing “some scary statistics.”  Time.com reports:

Former reality star Kristin Cavallari admitted to not vaccinating her son, and not planning to do so, in a Fox Business interview on Thursday. On Friday, she defended her position on “Fox & Friends,” adding that it was not something she planned to come out publicly on, but it just came up in the interview.

“Listen, to each their own,” Cavallari, pregnant with her second son, said. “I understand both sides of it. I’ve ready too many books about autism and there’s some scary statistics out there. It’s our personal choice, and, you know, if you’re really concerned about your kid get them vaccinated.”

The idea that vaccines cause autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has long been debunked by science, though it persists in part because of celebrities like Cavallari and, more famously, Jenny McCarthy, who perpetuate the link in interviews and public appearances.  Meanwhile, diseases that are preventable through vaccination, like measles and whooping cough, are cropping up again in communities across the country.

A recent study found that efforts to educate the public about the benefits of vaccines are not very effective, especially when parents have already formed negative opinions about the safety of vaccination.
