The Anti-Vax Movement: A gateway to amalgams?
Since the last three years, the anti-vax movement seems to be a worldwide one, with some local specificities, of course. It looks surprising, intriguing in many ways whereas it is not new as the three last centuries are full of these kinds of reactions.
After a short presentation of historical data, we will explore some of the present movements in various countries (with a focus on the french Antilles), their justifications, propose psychosocial explanations of their birth and developments. We will then try to draw general clinical analysis, hypothesis and interpretations about apparent irrational behaviours and motives for them.
