22 Medical Studies That Show Vaccines Can Cause Autism

Activist Post

Concerns regarding vaccinations continue to increase exponentially in light of all of the information and documentation that has surfaced over the past few years. As a result, corporate media has responded to alternative media, stating that the increase of persons who are choosing to opt out of vaccines and the recommended vaccine schedule is a result of ‘fear mongering.’

This may not be too surprising as the corporate media is owned by the major vaccine manufacturers, and the major vaccine manufacturers are owned by corporate media(1)(2)(3)(4). Given this fact, it’s easy to fathom the possibility that these institutions are desperately trying to protect the reputation of their product.

For example, if we take a look at GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer, they are owned by the same financial institutions and groups that own Time Warner (CNN, HBO etc.) and General Electric (NBC, Comcast, Universal Pictures etc.).(1)(2)(3)(4) This is seen throughout all of the major vaccine manufacturers and all of the 6 corporations that control our mainstream media. Keep in mind that these are the major funders of all ‘medical research’ that’s used to administer drugs and vaccinations. Despite these connections, medical research and documentation exists to show that vaccines might indeed be a cause for concern.

Vaccines and Autism, Both Sides of The Coin

Here we will simply present information from both sides of the coin because many are not even aware that two sides exist. We’ve presented multiple studies, citing multiple research papers and published research conducted by doctors and universities from all across the world. Here is an example of a paper that describes how vaccine manufactures and medical ‘experts’ with drug industry connections have been aware of the multiple dangers associated with vaccinations for over 30 years. We’d also like to present medical research that indicates the many dangers associated with vaccines, and have done this on multiple occasions. We do this because the safety of vaccinations is commonly pushed by the mainstream media, without ever mentioning or citing the abundant medical research that should also be taken into consideration when discussing vaccinations. Please keep in mind that there is evidence on both sides. At the same time, some of the evidence on the side that negates a positive outlook on vaccination has been labelled fraudulent, but then again many haven’t.

The vaccine-autism debate has been going on for years. It has been a tale of shifting beliefs as child vaccination rates remain high. On February 1998, Andrew Wakefield, a British gastroenterologist and his colleagues published a paper that supposedly linked Autism to Vaccines(5). More specifically, he claimed that the MMR vaccine was responsible for intestinal inflammation that led to translocation of usually non-permeable peptides to the bloodstream and, subsequently, to the brain, where they affected development(5). His work was unpublished, and he lost his medical license despite the fact multiple studies seem to support Andrew Wakefield’s work (here is one example, and here is another.) He has been labelled a fraud by the mainstream medical world, some experts claim that his research and methods are weak and based on very little evidence. Dr Wakefield’s research will NOT be used in this article.

At the same time I must mention that multiple studies from around the world have concluded that there is no link between Autism and the MMR Vaccine(5). It can become quite confusing a subject given that we have multiple medical studies contradicting each other. Was Dr. Wakefield exposing something that the medical industry did not want you to know? It is known that vaccine manufacturers suppress harmful data regarding their product, as mentioned and illustrated earlier in the article. Regardless of the MMR vaccine and autism debate, there are still a number of studies that link vaccines to a possible autism connection. Please keep in mind that multiple courts worldwide have ruled in favour of vaccines causing autism, brain damage and other complications (6)(7), that include the MMR vaccine.

Here is a great video narrated by Rob Schneider outlining the vaccine-autsim link. Below that you will find a list of 22 medical studies that show possible connections to vaccines and autism. Please keep in mind that we’ve only presented 22 studies here, there are many more published papers that document the link. Hopefully this inspires you to further your research on the subject. Also keep in mind that Autism is only one of the multiple shown consequences of vaccine administration, as they have been linked to a number of other ailments.

1. A study published in the journal Annals of Epidemiology has shown that giving the Hepatitis B vaccine to newborn baby boys could triple the risk of developing an autism spectrum disorder compared to boys who were not vaccinated as neonates. The research was conducted at Stony Brook University Medical Center, NY.

2. A study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry by researchers at the Neural Dynamics Group, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of British Columbia determined that Aluminum, a highly neurotoxic metal and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant may be a significant contributing factor to the rising prevalence of ASD in the Western World. They showed that the correlation between ASD prevalence and the Aluminum adjuvant exposure appears to be the highest at 3-4 months of age. The studies also show that children from countries with the highest ASD appear to have a much higher exposure to Aluminum from vaccines. The study points out that several prominent milestones of brain development coincide with major vaccination periods for infants. These include the onset of synaptogenesis (birth), maximal growth velocity of the hippocampus and the onset of amygdala maturation. Furthermore, major developmental transition in many bio-behavioural symptoms such as sleep, temperature regulation, respiration and brain wave patterns, all of which are regulated by the neuroendocrine network. Many of these aspects of brain function are known to be impaired in autism, such as sleeping and brain wave patterns.

According to the FDA, vaccines represent a special category of drugs as they are generally given to healthy individuals. Further according to the FDA, “this places significant emphasis on their vaccine safety”. While the FDA does set an upper limit for Aluminum in vaccines at no more that 850/mg/dose, it is important to note that this amount was selected empirically from data showing that Aluminum in such amounts enhanced the antigenicity of the vaccine, rather than from existing safety. Given that the scientific evidence appears to indicate that vaccine safety is not as firmly established as often believed, it would seem ill advised to exclude paediatric vaccinations as a possible cause of adverse long-term neurodevelopment outcomes , including those associated with autism.

3. A study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A: Current Issues by the Department of Economics and Finance at the University of New York shows how researchers suspect one or more environmental triggers are needed to develop autism, regardless of whether individuals have a genetic predisposition or not. They determined that one of those triggers might be the “battery of vaccinations that young children receive.” Researchers found a positive and statistically significant relationship between autism and vaccinations. They determined that the higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher the prevalence of autism. A 1 % increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having autism. The results suggest that vaccines may be linked to autism and encourages more in depth study before continually administering these vaccines.

4. A study published in the Journal of Toxicology by the Department of Neurosurgery at The Methodist Neurological Institute in Houston has shown that ASD is a disorder caused by a problem in brain development. They looked at B-cells and their sensitivity levels to thimerosal, a commonly used additive in many vaccines. They determined that ASD patients have a heightened sensitivity to thimerosal which would restrict cell proliferation that is typically found after vaccination. The research shows that individuals who have this hypersensitivity to thimerosal could make them highly susceptible to toxins like thimerosal, and that individuals with a mild mitochondrial defect may be affected by thimerosal. The fact that ASD patients’ B cells exhibit hypersensitivity to thimerosal tells us something.

5. A study published in the Journal of Biomedical Sciences determined that the autoimmunity to the central nervous system may play a causal role in autism. Researchers discovered that because many autistic children harbour elevated levels of measles antibodies, they should conduct a serological study of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and myelin basic protein (MBP) autoantibodies. They used serum samples of 125 autistic children and 92 controlled children. Their analysis showed a significant increase in the level of MMR antibodies in autistic children. The study concludes that the autistic children had an inappropriate or abnormal antibody response to MMR. The study determined that autism could be a result from an atypical measles infection that produces neurological symptoms in some children. The source of this virus could be a variant of MV, or it could be the MMR vaccine.

6. Study published in the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry suggests that Autism is likely triggered by a virus, and that measles virus (MV and/or MMR vaccine) might be a very good candidate. It supports the hypothesis that a virus-dincued autoimmune response may play a causal role in autism.

7. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition determined that an increased vulnerability to oxidative stress and decreased capacity for methylation may contribute to the development and clinical manifestation of autism. It’s well known that viral infections cause increased oxidative stress. Research suggests that metals, including those found in many vaccines are directly involved in increasing oxidative stress.

8. A study published by the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Northeastern University, Boston determined that a novel growth factor signalling pathway that regulates methionine synthase(MS) activity and thereby modulates methylation reactions. The potent inhibition of this pathway by ethanol, lead, mercury, aluminum and thimerosal suggests that it may be an important target of neurodevelopmental toxins. You can read more about this here, and here. You can read more about the MS/autism link here

9. A study published in the Journal of Child Neurology examined the question of what is leading to the apparent increase in autism. They expressed that if there is any link between autism and mercury, it is crucial that the first reports of the question are not falsely stating that no link occurs. Researchers determined that a significant relation does exist between the blood levels of mercury and the diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder.

10. A study published in the Journal of Child Neurology noted that autistic spectrum disorders can be associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. Researchers determined that children who have mitochondrial-related dysfunctional cellular energy metabolism might be more prone to undergo autistic regression between 18 and 30 months of age if they also have infections or immunizations at the same time.

11. A study conducted by Massachusetts General Hospital at the Centre for Morphometric Analysis by the department of Paediatric Neurology illustrates how autistic brains have a growth spurt shortly after birth and then slow in growth a few short years later. Researchers have determined that neuroinflammation appears to be present in autistic brain tissue from childhood through adulthood. The study excerpt reads:

Oxidative stress, brain inflammation and microgliosis have been much documented in association with toxic exposures including various heavy metals. The awareness that the brain as well as medical conditions of children with autism may be conditioned by chronic biomedical abnormalities such as inflammation opens the possibility that meaningful biomedical interventions may be possible well past the window of maximal neuroplasticity in early childhood because the basis for assuming that all deficits can be attributed to fixed early developmental alterations in net.

12, A study conducted by the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Arkansas determined that thimerosal-induced cytotoxicity was associated with the depletion of intracellular glutathione (GSH) in both cell lines. The study outlines how many vaccines have been neurotoxic, especially to the developing brain. Depletion of GSH is commonly associated with autism. Although thimerosal has been removed from most children’s vaccines, it is still present in flu vaccines given to pregnant women, the elderly and to children in developing countries.

13. A study published in the Public Library of Science (PLOS) determined that elevation in peripheral oxidative stress is consistent with, and may contribute to more severe functional impairments in the ASD group. We know that oxidative stress is triggered by heavy metals, like the ones contained in multiple vaccines.

14. A study conducted by the University of Texas Health Science Center by the Department of Family and Community Medicine determined that for each 1,000 Ib of environmentally released mercury, there was a 43% increase in the rate of special education services and a 61% increase in the rate of autism. Researchers emphasized that further research was needed regarding the association between environmentally released mercury and developmental disorders such as autism.

15. A study published in the International Journal of Toxicology determined that in light of the biological plausibility of mercury’s role in neurodevelopment disorders, the present study provides further insight into one possible mechanism by which early mercury exposures could increase the risk of autism.

16. A study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health determined that mercury exposure can induce immune, sensory, neurological, motor and behavioural dysfunctions similar to traits defining or associated with ASDs. Based upon differential diagnoses, 8 of 9 patients examined were exposed to significant mercury from Thimerosal-containing vaccine preparations during their fetal/infant developmental periods. These previously normal developing children suffered mercury encephalopathies that manifested with clinical symptoms consistent with regressive ASDs. Evidence for mercury intoxication should be considered in the differential diagnosis as contributing to some regressive ASDs.

17. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine conducted by the University of Texas Health Science Centre suspected that persistent low-dose exposures to various environmental toxicants including mercury, that occur during critical windows of neural development among genetically susceptible children, may increase the risk for developmental disorders such as autism.

18. A study conducted by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine showed that Macaques are commonly used in pre-clinical vaccine safety testing. Collective Evolution does not support animals testing, we feel there is a large amount of evidence and research that already indicated the links to vaccines in which some animals have been used to illustrate. The objective of this study was to compare early infant cognition and behaviour with amygdala size and opioid binding in rhesus macaques receiving the recommended childhood vaccines. The animal model, which examines for the first time, behavioural, functional and neuromorphometric consequences of the childhood vaccine regimen, mimics certain neurological abnormalities of autism. These findings raise important safety issues while providing a potential model for examining aspects of causation and disease pathogenesis in acquired disorders of behaviour and development.

19. A study conducted by The George Washington University School of Public Health from the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics determined that significantly increased rate ratios were observed for autism and autism spectrum disorders as a result of exposure to mercury from Thimerosal-containing vaccines.

20. A study published in the journal Cell Biology and Toxicology by Kinki University in Osaka, Japan determined that in combination with the brain pathology observed in patients diagnosed with autism, the present study helps to support the possible biological plausibility for how low-dose exposure to mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines may be associated with autism.

21. A study published by the journal Lab Medicine determined that vaccinations may be one of the triggers for autism. Researchers discovered that substantial data demonstrates immune abnormality in many autistic children consistent with impaired resistance to infection, activation of inflammatory responses and autoimmunity. Impaired resistance may predispose to vaccine injury in autism.

22. A study published in the journal Neurochemical Research determined that since excessive accumulation of extracellular glutamate is linked with excitotoxicity, data implies that neonatal exposure to thimerosal-containing vaccines might induce excitotoxic brain injuries, leading to neurodevelopmental disorders.

    Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you, but just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they are.

    Walker-Smiths’ success at appeal and proof that he did not commit medical injury against the Lancet children does not “exonerate” Andrew Wakefield for egregiously misrepresented and falsified research data. Medical studies must withstand repeated trials to be true; regardless of Wakefield’s character or intentions, his results cannot be duplicated.

    Not that I expect you to think of me as anything less than a shill, but hey- they say repetition aids learning. So sue me.

  • Arden Peters

    Who the hell would be stupid enough to publish an article like this! Arjun Walia, whatever you background is on this subject and whoever taught it to you should be chastised! And what the hell are these so called “Sources” Who in finances knows anything scientifically sound about vaccines! Do you even know anything about them! OBVIOUSLY YOU DO NOT!!! Because if you did you would realise what a blessing they are to the world. Honestly would you still like to be dealing with small pox!?!?! You should not be misleading people as you are with this article. People who publish this crap sound be reprimanded and mocked out of the public realm so that they won’t misinform people any more.

    I get my medical information from a site that has a link to “The Sexiest Celebrity Butts” on it. If that doesn’t scream credibility, you ain’t listening.

  • sosalosaros

    The yahoo websites link to information on who owns Pfeizer, General electric, and time Warner corporations. Not clinical studies. The author was backing up his initial claims that “corporate media has responded to alternative media, stating that the increase of persons who are choosing to opt out of vaccines and the recommended vaccine schedule is a result of ‘fear mongering.’
    This may not be too surprising as the corporate media is owned by the major vaccine manufacturers, and the major vaccine manufacturers are owned by corporate media”
    You say most are based on mercury containing vaccines….not all of the studies quoted based on the hypothesis that mercury containing vaccinations cause autism. Most of the studies are actually addressing the possibility heavy metals in general are suspect. 7 out of 22 studies focussed on mercury. There were a further 15 that didnt. MMR vaccine was mentioned a few times. You cannot ignore the evidence presented and honestly say that vaccines do not pose a risk to children.Who funded the study you mentioned? Is the method used for this study better than the methods used in the 22 studies that the author of the article mentioned? Did they compare non vaccinated children against vaccinated children? You conveniently forget to mention any of the other vaccines included in vaccination schedules around the world. MMR is only one of many, each with different ingredients and administered at different times in a developing childs life. I’d happily move to the island you mention. If it means that I could live in a society of informed and intelligent individuals that question the status quo and dont take everything that the powers that be say as the gospel truth….I’d be a happy non vaccinated “goddamn idiot”.

    This is not how immunity works. The man you are citing is a conspiracy theorist. Take an immunology course. The brain is remarkably uninvolved with the body’s immune response.

  • anon

    In all fairness, it is not purely genetic. Certain cases have actually shown up where a vaccine caused autism. But I’d like to point out that that was because of another thing caused by genetics. It’s true that it is possible for “inflamed intestines” to lead to harmful materials entering the bloodstream, but thats such a rare case. Because first of all, the intestines have to be really weak. In fact, their practically has to be a hole in them. Personally I have Crohns, my intestines are inflamed, I’m not autistic due to vaccines. VACCINATE YOUR KIDS!

    I’m 25 years old. I’ve been vaccine free for 20 years. I’m also healthy. Very healthy. As someone who works on the business side of a medical supply company, I am glad I do not get vaccinated.

        You’re a rat! If you say so!

    • Jaymz Bondurant

      You’re vaccine free and haven’t gotten sick? That’s great. I ate lunch today. So the world hunger problem is solved. Also, I woke up in my own house. So, homelessness is no longer a problem. Even better news: I didn’t strap a bomb to myself and blow anything up. So, the war on terrorism is finally over!!!

      P.S.-Probably the only reason you’re still alive is because everyone else AROUND you has been vaccinated. BTW, the last time we had a major outbreak of something and nobody was vaccinated (because vaccinations didn’t exist) was the black plague in which our species almost became extinct to the point that it would have easily qualified for the endangered species list. So, thanks for putting the rest of us in danger and doing your best to annihilate the entire human race. Good job!

      • Sam

        Smoke another blunt and finish off your ability to put together any kind of logical thought. It has been proven over and over that SANITATION was the reason for the decline of disease not vaccination. God help the libtards that occupy this website.

        • Guest

          List 27 infectious diseases where vaccinations are or have been available with their principal transmission modes, note how many are RESPIRATORY:

          Adenovirus – Respiratory
          Anthrax – Respiratory
          Cholera – Fecal/Oral
          Diptheria – Respiratory
          Tetanous – Injury/penetrating wounds
          Pertussis – Respiratory
          Hepatitis A – Fecal/Oral
          Hepatitis B – Bloodborne & body fluids
          Haemophilus influenzae type b – Respiratory
          Human Papilloma Virus – Sexual transmission
          Influenza – Respiratory
          Japanese Encephalitis – Mosquito (vector)
          Measles – Respiratory
          Mumps – Respiratory
          Rubella – Respiratory
          Meningococcus Pnuemonia – Respiratory
          Pneumococcus – Respiratory
          Polio – Fecal/Oral
          Rabies – contact with infected animal (vector)
          Rotavirus – Respiratory
          Shingles – Residual from prior Varicella infection
          Smallpox – Respiratory
          Typhoid Fever – Fecal/Oral
          Typhus – Flea (vector)
          Tuberculosis – Respiratory
          Varicella – Respiratory
          Yellow Fever – Mosquito (vector)

          Advances in public sanitation measures have, indeed, been a major factor in disease prevention. Most measures involve advanced domestic and industrial waste handling and removal systems, purification of water and food preparation and storage regulations. These measures restrict or remove human contact with potentially infectious wastes of all types – feces, sewage, spoiled food, agricultural wastes, hazardous chemicals, etc.

          I’ll give you sanitation measures preventing, to a certain extent, polio, typhoid and hepatitis A as they are fecal/oral transmissions. However, the most frequently encountered fecal/oral diseases world-wide are diarrheal in nature and have viral, bacterial or parasitic causes for which there are no vaccines. If you were to include better insect irradication as a sanitation measure, mosquito borne Yellow Fever and Japanese Encephalitis can be reduced but these diseases are rarely seen in civilized countries or outside of Asia.

          You people really piss me off. You insult someone who knows their stuff and spout ignorance at people who don’t know any better. And you seem to like bold words, so enjoy…
          While “SANITATION” is a part of the decline of some diseases, there is strong evidence (as in DO YOUR RESEARCH) that vaccines are responsible for the disappearance or severe decline of many deadly diseases. If “SANITATION” was the saving grace, then you would, or at least normal, knowledgeable people, would expect to see the decline in disease to be slow, starting in the early 1900s at least, as hygiene practices improved and health regulations were put in place. Instead, what do we see? Oh, diseases just dropped suddenly RIGHT AFTER THE VACCINE! BTW, many of the diseases that have been vaccinated against are AIRBORNE so sanitation wouldn’t make a big difference unless by sanitation you mean wearing a mask 24/7.

          Here’s a couple examples to prove my point; if you don’t believe me then go find your own sources. (Oh wait, you didn’t have any…)
          Polio: “An average of over 35,000 cases were reported during this time period. With the introduction of Salk inactivated polio virus vaccine (IPV) in 1955, the number of cases rapidly declined to under 2,500 cases in 1957. By 1965, only 61 cases of paralytic polio were reported…The last cases of naturally occurring paralytic polio in the United States were in 1979, when an outbreak occurred among the Amish in several Midwestern states.” http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/polio/dis-faqs.htm

          Measles: here’s a graph to make it easier for you, since you’re probably too lazy to do your own research. Measles is airborne, so it would not be affected much by sanitation. http://www.historyofvaccines.org/content/graph-us-measles-cases

          • Ann

            There is no evidence that vaccines have prevented disease. Disease waned long before vaccine was introduced into the population. Vaccines do cause disease, however. They shed and contaminate the healthy people.

          • Ekdkdk Dldldldld

            You do realise that a vaccine is a small dosage of that disease so the white blood cells in the human body can develop immunities to said diseases, right?

          • Ann

            Yes, and I also realize that vaccines contain adjuvants that are toxic to the human brain and body. Do you realize this? Do you realize that immunity and vaccines are not synonymous?

          • Do you have even a high school-level in biology? Do you realize you have no idea what you’re talking about? Do you realize personal beliefs and factual knowledge are not synonymous?

            It’s called a typo. Despite that you’ve demonstrated NO knowledge of even basic science and claim to forget more that we know. So you’re still a bigger subject of ridicule.

          • Ann

            You are a scientist? Ha, Ha, but then again, I guess so, Frankenstein!

          • Bjorn Fowler

            I am a scientist. I went to university and majored in microbiology and immunology, continued on with post-grad studies. What educational background do you have?

          • Ann

            I have a Masters Degree. I have been an educator for over 30 years. If you have studied at University then you know you don’t know everything. Your posts prove that you are not only arrogant but you need to go back to school, Frankenstein. You take a few courses and you think you are a scientist, ha, ha!

          • Bjorn Fowler

            I never claimed to know everything, but you’ve demonstrated you don’t f**king know ANYTHING.
            So don’t lie about your qualifications, it’s obvious to someone who actually has a degree.
            Unless of course your degree is in some unrelated field like history or botany, it which case it doesn’t count for sh*t..

          • annie

            Too bad you never prove that with any…. oh what is it called? Oh yes… evidence. So far all you have proven is that you have no clue.

          • Ann

            I have posted reams of evidence. You are just to simple-minded to read them.

          • annie

            HAHAHAHAHAHA Reams of evidence.
            No, you spout reams of opinion, not based on fact or evidence. Good try. You wouldn’t know evidence if you fell in it and rolled around in it.

          • This one sounds an awful lot like Kiko/Jeff/Bridgit. The alternative is that there are several people too stupid to breed on here.

          • annie

            You are right. That “reams of evidence” smells….
            Somewhere there is a tree that all of these people need to apologise to.

          • Ann

            You have never posted one shred of research or one shred of evidence. You are a brain-washed Toadie!

          • annie

            Stooping to childish name-calling just proves you have no evidence, and don’t have a clue what you are talking about. Go back to your crayons and let the adults talk.

          • Ann

            You are an adult? What a laugh! Insulting me does not make you right. You have added nothing to the conversation other than nonsense. You are not childish though, because that would insult children. Every child I know has more brains than you will ever have.

          • annie

            LOL you can dish it out, but you sure get b*tthurt when someone hands it back to you.
            Grow up.

          • Ann

            I realize that you have no idea of what you are talking about. You are just a shill for the drug companies. Congratulations! It is well-known, common knowledge that vaccines contain deadly toxins. Hey, even their inserts, if you can read, list the serous and deadly consequences of these vaccines. I suggest that you get a real job. And by the way, my personal belief is that you are a con man and a shill and that is also a fact. So, sometimes personal beliefs are facts. GET IT?

          • You’re truly an ldiot. Ask yourself this, why would anyone pay someone to make posts when they don’t even have any control over what I say? Do you think a big bad pharma company would pay me to tell you how stupid you are?

            Also, you might want to google the word fact. Apparently you don’t know what that means either. GET IT? Fcktard.

            Flagged! Now to go alert the millions of minions [‘suz socks’ har d har] to follow suit, and I’m sure we can get that obscene language ‘gang flagged’ to oblivion!

            It works for the astroBRATS anyway, Adad! 😉

          • AutismDadd

            If you can’t get them for murder get them for tax evasion.

          • suz norkan

            Even a murderous chicago gangster ‘got nuthin’ on pharma propagandists who’ve injured and killed generations of children!

            And I feel their punishment should fit their crimes, with suz being an ‘off with their heads,’ kind of gal, Adadd! 😉

          • Bjorn Fowler

            So that’s how antivaxxers attempt to win arguments. Can’t provide any valid defence so you gang flag.

          • suz norkan

            I don’t know of any anti vaxers!

            And I’m quite certain the comment was in reference to the obscene language used by you ‘forced vaxers’ and not any lack of a valid defense!

            However, I’m pretty sure that me & many others got the ‘gang flagging’ media manipulation modus operandi from you astroBRATS! 😉

          • Bjorn Fowler

            “I don’t know of any anti vaxers!”
            Well there’s you, autismdad, kiko, ionemurphy, and everyone else in your follow list, so that’s a lie right there.

            Still doesn’t change the fact you can’t dispute with real evidence, so stop spreading all your other lies.

          • suz norkan

            I know that ione and I are NOT anti vax, right off the bat and doubt that Kiko or Adadd are either! So you are lying and making false misrepresentations in your feeble and failed attempts to advance your pov.

            You don’t have any REAL evidence to dispute! What you have is funded research data with p.r. spins!

            Aw! It looks like for deceit, corruption and cover ups, you astroBRATS are still the lying pharma propagandists media manipulators to DIE for, BF! 😉

          • Bjorn Fowler

            If you are in fact not an antivaxxer. then why would you ever say “pharma propagandists who’ve injured and killed generations of children!”?
            As for Ionemurphy, most of his comments are claims that vaccines are harmful.
            Autisticdadd, his slogan on his page “Vaccines Cause Autism/ Pro-Vacs are liars”. Another antivaxxer
            Kiko also pushes the debunked claim of vaccines cause austim
            4 obvious antivaxxers with one claiming not to be an anti-vaxxer.

            Don’t lie, you f**king anti-vaxxer.

          • suz norkan

            ‘Anti’ means against! Anti vax would mean I’m ‘against or in opposition’ to vax, just as anti abortion would mean that I oppose abortion.

            I ‘oppose,’ am ‘against’ or am ‘anti’ neither! And while I may not opine to engage in such activities for myself, I certain will honor the freedom our men and women became injured or killed, fighting for your right to do either, both and so much more.

            I also surmise that the same is likely true for ione, Adadd and Kiko; although you may certainly question them personally for verification.

            I don’t lie and watch your FOUL language, Fowler, you little astroBRAT!

            To reiterate for you illiterate, I don’t know ‘NO’ anti vaxers! 😉

          • Bjorn Fowler

            “pharma propagandists who’ve injured and killed generations of children!”
            Certainly sounds like you’re against vaccines to me, putting aside the fact that the comment is a LIE.

            “I also surmise that the same is likely true for ione, Adadd and Kiko”
            Nope, all are as anti-vaxx as your lying f**king self and provide just as many lies (Like all anti-vaxxers, given their “cause” demands it)

            Stop f**king lying you f**king anti-vaxxer.

          • suz norkan

            You’re so stupid you have to cuss in your feeble and failed attempts to appear smart and make you feel tough!

            I don’t give a ‘flying Fowler’ what you think ‘something’ sounds like!

            I don’t lie! Boo frickeny hoo! Go cry to mommy so she can wash you mouth out with some borax while she’s cleaning your snotty nose, you little astroBRAT!

            Package Insert From FDA

            Diphtheria Toxoids and Pertussis Vaccine Tripedia®

            Page 11

            ‘Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism,
            convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy,
            somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the
            seriousness or frequency of reporting.’

          • Bjorn Fowler

            “Adverse events reported during post-approval”
            “Events were included in this list because of the
            seriousness or frequency of reporting”

            Again not evidence. The insert says REPORTED, not linked.
            Furthermore if it’s a serious condition, even if only one person reports it, on the insert it goes.
            In other words, whats listed on a vaccine insert doesn’t mean s**t.

          • Ann

            No, it doesn’t mean anything if you are an ostrich. Interesting, when it is reported as a side-effect it doesn’t mean anything. I guess nothing means anything.When it rains grass grows. I guess that does not mean anything either.

            My advice to you is to keep reading my posts over and over again until you learn something, Einstein!

          • Bjorn Fowler

            “Interesting, when it is reported as a side-effect it doesn’t mean anything”
            Yeah, because it’s not a confirmed causal link. Do you have some kind of learning disorder?

            “My advice to you is to keep reading my posts over and over again until you learn something, Einstein!”
            Reading your posts won’t result in learning anything given they’re wrong in the first place.

          • annie

            Cherry picking at its finest.
            Too bad you never bothered to read the very next sentence: “Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequencies or to establish a causal relationship to components of Tripedia vaccine.”
            Apparently you don’t understand what that means.

          • Ann

            Yes, just shut your eyes to the facts, skirt the reports and cherry pick the adverse effects of vaccines. What do you have to gain, cherry picker? I guess I did cherry pick because I did not mention the myriad of other listed, horrible effects of vaccines. Sorry for that oversight!

          • annie

            Nice try, child.
            You are the one cherry picking. That has been proven.
            You are the one who doesn’t understand scientific methodology or analysis. That has also been proven.
            You are incapable of comprehending that just because something is reported, does not make it fact, or relevant.
            I think I should be able to report a vaccine injury from reading your idiotic posts. Maybe I should even get that put on an insert.

          • Ann

            I should report you because you are brain-dead. Don’t you realize that there are 100s of well-known and renown doctors and scientists who know a lot more than you do and guess what? They say vaccines are dangerous and deadly. Vaccines are a crime against humanity. You are just a troll for pharma and what you post means absolutely nothing! Are you smart enough to comprehend that?

            AUTISM
            Is Now Disclosed and Acknowledged as an Adverse Event Reported for Use of
            DTaP Vaccine

            March 10, 2016 by prof77

            There’s widespread and growing lack
            of confidence in the safety of vaccines . . .

            Know anyone who still believes that
            vaccines can’t cause autism?

          You obviously haven’t thought far enough into your “belief” to realize that if it were true (and it isn’t), that we would see outbreaks in every daycare and elementary school after the first child gets their vaccination. We don’t.
          Given that there are millions of vaccinations administered annually, where are all of these shedding outbreaks? Oh right. They don’t happen.

          Correlation does not imply causation.
          You need to look at the case in more detail.
          Are the cases of autism more likely in vaccinated individuals? (The answer is no btw). This can be determined through case-control and cohort studies to work out the % of autistic kids in both not vaccinated and vaccinated groups. many studies have done just that and a meta-analysis was performed on those studies

      Thank everyone around you who DID get vaccinated and keeps you protected through herd immunity.

        So If herd immunity were to work ..95% plus would have to immunised (vaccinated) ….Seeing how Vaccine effectiveness is …maybe 5 at best 10 years that means all baby boomers ….all people who have not had boosters are Not Protected (are no longer Vaccinated) ..ergo ….

        Herd Immunity =No Such Thing!

        • drone iao

          herd immunity only works when 95% of us are vaccinated, we’re at 91% right now so herd immunity is not a real thing in america, though if you looked at studies now that a small section of the population isn’t getting vaccinated when they could you would realize that we just had the first recorded measles death since the invention of vaccines just happened this year. yes, the first recorded death of measles since the invention of vaccines happened as soon as 9% of the population stopped using vaccines, such a strange coincidence.

            St. Jude Hospital for Children posts a sign (s) which declare that if you are recently vaccinated , you are not to visit the patients because of shedding. Many of these children are on radiation and chemo and their immune systems can not fight shedding of vaccines. Look it up! By the way CDC has just recently verified that yes, indeed, vaccines do shed viruses that can cause disease.

            So you know better than the doctors at St. Jude’s. That is plainly stupid of you.

      Receiving 3-4 vaccines in one visit inject 7 antigen into a tiny vessel (infants) whose immune systems are not capable of handling such a deluge at one time. Simplest solution. Change time tables on administration and number of doses given at one time. Why not? Insurance will not cover the multiple needed office visits.

  • there is such a thing as false balance, some times there really actually factually no-bullshit is just one side to a story/issue.

    You dont have to worry about illegal immigrants [which is a ridiculous thing to say anyhow “who knows what they may be carrying” as if human beings’ are less healthy based on their citizenship, fucking moron…. ] because if dumb parents get conned by websites like this one and over-the-hill models into skipping their children’s vaccination, those children become potential incubators for versions of the diseases that are different enough to get around the vaccination.
    but if that happened stupid people wouldn’t say “well we fucked up” no, they would say “look those vaccines don’t even work!” because they’re stupid and dangerously so.

  • “I mean, what is this one little back-water page compared”

    its the first hit on google when someone searches “vaccines cause autism” ….. just …. y’know, to the type of dumbfuck to believe in something like this, that first spot on google’s results, and “22!” papers, and everything else says this is legit, like the terms and conditions we all just accept, no one checks sources or references or is going to take the time to even read this entire article, in the first 30 seconds they’ve already gotten confirmation that looks 100% legit.

  • “Name calling is the last refuge of the out debated. It is also the hallmark of an uninformed person and a troll.”

    no no no, they weren’t trying to insult or troll [the single most over-used AND mis-used word of this decade btw], they were describing people who, if they think vaccines cause autism, are ____.

    Like, here’s an example: if someone really likes candy, they may have to brush their teeth more often.
    Its a simple If -> then statement. If I have 2 apples, then, I have 2 apples. Simple really. If I cut my hair, then I have shorter hair. If I walk about naked, then I will be arrested and be an idiot. You get the idea.

    No name calling involved, if you think vaccines cause autism, then you’re a god damned idiot. Its the same as people who text while driving, or drink and drive: IF you drink and drive, THEN, you’re a goddamned idiot. Its not about trying to insult the drunk driver or make his feelings hurt or affect his self esteem, its purely to describe the state of things as they factually are.

    Its just a descriptor, and it should be appreciated, people need good Samaritans to point these things out. For example, if you jump off bridges you’re a moron. Once this is said to someone trying to jump off a bridge, they may consider it and go “oh yeah, that is a really dumb thing to do..maybe i wont. thanks!”

    When someone’s friends tell them “No dont drink that, you’d be a goddamned idiot to drink bleach” they’re helping, not trying to hurt their feelies. When someone says you’d be a goddamned idiot to think vaccines cause autism, they’re trying to help you, not lash out because they feel that they are losing some non-existent debate. There is no debate, vaccines do not cause autism. You’d be as much an idiot to think that, as to think 3 = 7. [pro tip, 3 = 3]

  • the final question is:
    would you rather leave your child vulnerable to a variety of deadly and painful diseases, or would you rather not?

    • disqus_lpTcXWvTkw

      I’ll wager those parents whose child was left brain-damaged (NOT AUTISM), or blind, or deaf, or DEAD would have just preferred to have been told the whole truth of ALL RISKS and BENEFITS and given the WARNING inserts provided by pharma with each dose; which is required by law but truly doesnt happen. and yes, my child was left deaf for life. your fear of disease is understandable but when a clear simple fix of expanding the timeline so that tiny, perfect vessles (infants) are not injected with 7 foreign antigens at once – 36 vaccinations by 18 mos. old and going to one dose at a time, as recommended by scientists, immunologists, doctors alike, why wont the CDC or Medical Community accept and embrace the new models? Couldn’t be that insurance dictates the number of visits covered so the medical community said give them 3-4 at one visit.

      • insurance companies are assholes? holy shit this guy might be on to something……

  • 8caster

    A part of the reason why people don’t take vaccines seriously is because they have never seen what the things they’re being vaccinated for could do, or how fast they can spread, or how much permanent damage they can cause.

    Even if the autism claims ARE true, the risk of kids developing it as a result of the vaccines is minimal compared to the risk of picking up something like Polio later in life. Other nations that didn’t vaccinate still have those really ugly, dangerous illnesses.

    Really, you’re looking out for your kid’s future as well. Imagine if he ended up working for a charity and going to nigeria, just to end up getting polio, of all things?

    If there’s anything that makes it any more ironic, you don’t hear the people in Africa whining about how it makes their kids autistic. They just want the dang vaccine. Because they’ve seen the damage that these things do.

    • Benjamin Harrison

      Actually Polio was a lottery draw, the numbers obviously added up with time, but you had a few hundred paralysis cases from it every year. The vast majority (70-80 percent, had no symptoms or were simply naturally immune), 10-15 percent had cold symptoms, and usually a few hundred had paralysis and a few dozen, death. 1 in 60 get autism, even smaller percentages got paralytic polio. That being said, I don’t believe that the vaccines cause it, but the rising prevalence of plenty of kids that need serious care for life is a problem. I wouldn’t even call myself autistic considering that I don’t need diapers as an adult, and can brush my teeth, tie my shoes, etc. A severely autistic child I had to help watch for some time had all of those problems. Probably can never live out on his own. That being said, a lottery draw is still scary, I am not going to deny it, but autism is the new taxing disability that we deal with.

  • Wrote35PageReportOnVaccines

    Wakefield didn’t lose his license because he was wrong, he lied and cheated! He was being paid to find a connection between the MMR and autism and fudged his number to make it work. He hand picked the 12 children in his “study” to fit his needs. Do your research, Brian Deer uncovered all of this in a few months of investigation.

    Wakefield’s fraud has caused this whole non-vaccination thing, vaccines are safe! Stop being stupid and exposing your children to terrible diseases. The whooping cough has killed so many infants in the past, but since the vaccine we don’t hear about any deaths.

    • joan

      to add to this, it was found that wakefield and his team of idiots put that story out becasue they were about to start their own vaccination company..and call it “safe” . i feel sorry for these unimmunised children who have idiotic parents. wonder if anti vacc’ers use antibitocs when they are sick??? or would refuse radiation or any ither tye of treatment if they were faced with cancers etc…….

      • You should feel sorry for them. The main reason the parents have stopped immunizing them is because they have allowed their own children to be damaged. Only after the fact do they actually learn that vaccines are not only toxic but don’t work. And in case you didn’t know, radiation is a CAUSE of cancer. How can anyone even consider it as a treatment? It’s illogical. As a pro-health, anti-toxin injector, I would never allow myself or my child to be irradiated. I say that after 13 years of watching the extreme pain in my injured child and spending every dime I earned to get her well. Yes, I was an idiotic parent who was brainwashed. Thankfully I woke up.

    • Jeroen68

      The study of Prof. Walker-Smith, Dr. Wakefield and 11 other scientist was not fraudulent. It was the corrupt GMC that did not want this information to come out and misused their power to suppress this for them threatening study.

      Prof. Walker-Smith won his High Court appeal against the UK’s General Medical Council.

      “As Mr Justice Mitting observed in his judgement, ‘There is now no respectable body of opinion which supports (Dr Wakefield’s) hypothesis, that MMR vaccine and autism/enterocolitis are causally linked’.”

    I lost 2 children to Pertussis. I didn’t get them vaccinated. It’s ok though. At least I don’t have to raise Autistic kids. Better to bury babies than spend a lifetime with someone who can’t look after themselves. I don’t want that burden. I bet all these parents who have Autistic kids think the same.
    Yes, this was sarcasm. Aimed at all the idiots here that won’t get their kids vaccinated. The above is what I think of you selfish baby killing idiots.

  • Caitlin

    So the idea is that vaccinating your children will cause them to get autism? I call bulls**t. You know why?
    In my nearly 15 years of existence, I’ve been vaccinated a good dozen times by various vaccinations. As a baby, the basics so I wouldn’t die. As a toddler, chicken pox, and the regulars. As a twelve year old, HPV, Tdap and Hep B.
    I have high functioning ASD. But guess what?
    It’s genetic, i.e. you get it from YOUR PARENTS, so if you have a kid with ASD and you are so upset about it, you have nothing to blame but your own genetics!
    Honestly, if you are so upset with a kid that is special and different and think that having an autism spectrum disorder is worse than dying of a preventable illness like the chicken pox or HPV maybe you should rethink parenthood. Because in all honesty, a kid can live and cope with ASD. Not so much with dying.

    • Benjamin Harrison

      Dude, you don’t understand real autism, and your comment is pretty ignorant. It’s good to be the kid that doesn’t need diapers. I believe it’s genetic to an extent, but there’s some kind of environmental influence out there. ASD is a broad classification that applies from everything from someone who has slight issues all the way to someone who is so disabled they cannot ever live indpendently and require constant care. I am personally disappointed about the obssession with the idea that vaccines cause it, I wish people would move on, but a lot of kids aren’t as fortunate as you are. A lot of them need diaper changing, teeth brushing, and shoe tying for life. Being severely disabled is bad, but constantly chasing something that is wrong won’t solve the problem.

    Research has also shown that thimerosal is no longer in vaccines since 2001, and even more research has shown that 2001 was 13 years ago.
    But ya know, anti-vaxxers believe everything they hear from a guy acting as a doctor in his garage rather than listening to researchers who have been working tirelessly over the subject to shut idiots like that guy up who is trying to ruin many many years of research.
    So the real question is are you going to believe a fake, or are you going to believe a professional that isn’t “working for big pharma”.
    People have a conscience, and if vaccines were really doing what is believed, then there would be actual doctors that you KNOW that would be telling you that vaccines are harmful. However, I have yet to have a doctor that I know, or a friend/family member’s doctor do that.
    So for the sake of the world and your reputation of whatever intelligence you have, GET YOUR KIDS VACCINATED

      FORGET AUTISM-THINK VACCINES. I suggest you seek a new doctor. Your statements reflect your willingness to believe whatever you are spoon-fed rather than questioning, educating yourself and making informed decisions. Federal law requires doctors to provide patients with ALL RISKS and BENEFITS of vaccines as well as provide the WARNING inserts accompanying ALL vaccines administered. Or that they are required to report any adverse effects or reactions but estimates say only 10% are reported. http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/Activities/vaers.html in 1998 there were 9 vaccines on the national Vaccine Injury Table, today there are 16. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).created under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 collects a “tax per dose” to pay for injuries suffered from vaccinations paid by not pharmas but you the taxpayer.http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/vaccinetable.html There is not enough room here to lead you to the results of my 36 yrs of research after my daughter lost her hearing and was left deaf for life from vaccinations.

    Vaccines don’t cause autism. Symptoms of autism show up around three months old, which coincidentally is when children usually get their first vaccines. Its not the vaccine people, its the child. Autism is a disease you’re born with, you can’t get it through anything. Before you go saying what caused your child’s disease, how about you go learn about.

That is probably one of the most far out conspiracy theories I have ever heard. Good luck trying to prove or even adequately explain how that is possible. An easy way for you to justify not reading any I suppose. They can be almost impossibly hard to read at times after all if you lack the proper education to understand what they say.

          Also, which CDC report? From what I have seen they follow the science and confirm no link between Autism and Vaccines.

          • Dustin Briltz

            Okay, I’ve read enough of your shit man. Honestly use your fucking brain. You first criticize someone else about correlation not being equal to causation (which is true) but then you leave a link to a correlated study as to why they believe it has been vaccinations that have lowered the mortality rates of fatal diseases. Take your own advice. There is NO study showing that vaccines actually do what they are intended to do. To do so would be highly unethical using a human population because one would have to first have a group of children receiving the vaccination and then exposing them to the disease following X amount of time after the vaccination. Secondly, as per the scientific method you mentioned, good science is based on REPLICATION. This simply means that if results are obtained from one study then the exact same procedure from that study should be replicated by a different group of scientists in order to see if the same results are obtained. This process should occur at least once but the more this process is repeated then the more reliable the original study becomes if the same results are obtained over and over again. Thirdly, there is something called “conflict of interest”, you should have heard of it being you claim to understand the scientific method. It is a conflict of interest when the company making a product is the only one conducting the research for it. It is pretty easy to understand why if you think about it (they want to sell their product so in knowing this information one needs to be careful that results are not influenced by a bias in order to reach their own expectations and goals). Another problem with conflict of interest occurs when members of the CDC and FDA are being funded by the pharmaceutical companies themselves. You also have the media and universities being funded by the pharmaceutical companies. This becomes problematic because articles coming out of these funded universities may have been influenced to show particular results that pharmaceutical companies are aiming to provide to the public. It is also problematic to fund news outlets because the media may be influenced to present a favourable position of the pharmaceutical companies. It is very unresponsible of you to sit here and criticize others on their viewpoints while ignoring the problematic nature from your side of this arguement. I also want to make note that a number of studies were proven to be falsified by particular pharmaceutical agencies. I suggest you learn to think logically about the problem at hand rather than blaintly accepting what the media and these “scientific articles” (as you call them) are telling you because the ones you are claiming to be “scientific” are not that “scientific” at all.

          • Magnus Tranum

            Oh dear. I seem to have upset you by actually believing the data as opposed to living in a conspiratorial bubble. I fear that your personal upset really won’t change the fabric of reality, no matter how hard you squint.

            I won’t go into great depth in this response, but I will make a few points.
            -Claiming that there are no studies that show vaccines are effective is an outright lie. You are either ignorant or dishonest.
            -There are more than one way of gathering data, and you conflate several into one unholy mess. Repeatability is important when devising an experiment, but an entirely moot point when you are simply aggregating massive amounts of data for analysis that anyone can check.
            -Conflicts of interest are important to take into consideration, but it’s conspiratorial nonsense to assume it’s anywhere near as dire as the picture you try to paint.
            -You assume I don’t take such into consideration, a point which is nothing more than a straw man argument as I most certainly do.
            -That you claim something isn’t scientific has exactly zero bearing on whether it is or not, and claiming to be any kind of authority on science after your disjointed ramble is pitiable at best.

          • Dustin Briltz

            I would love to see these studies whenever you have a chance. Shouldn’t take you long to post the links to them here since you obviously have done your research.

          • Magnus Tranum

            Phew, where to start. There are so many, which a quick google search would show you by the way. I suppose I can give you a couple, though I do suggest you actually ask someone who is an authority on this, such as an immunologist.

            An oft cited one is ‘Health impact of measles vaccination in the United States’ by Bloch AB, Orenstein WA, Stetler HC, et al from 1985.
            http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3931045

            Looking at something slightly larger, a meta study of influenza vaccine effectiveness, a series of vaccines that are notoriously difficult to get right due to the short development time afforded by each seasonal strain, and the relatively low effectiveness reflects that: ‘Efficacy and effectiveness of influenza vaccines: a systematic review and meta-analysis’ by Michael T Osterholm et al from 2011.

            If you are not so fond of direct sources you can always go to the who and see what they have to see about the matter, an opinions which sources 69 papers on the topic.
            http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/86/2/07-040089/en/

            And of course, one mustn’t forget that we eradicated smallpox with vaccines.

            And we are close to eradicating polio as well. An effort currently only hindered in the last vestiges by fanatics who believe vaccines are a western plot to destroy them.

            I suppose I could include a link to a graph which shows measles cases in the US before and after the introduction of the vaccine.

            Vaccines do not prevent disease. There are no studies that prove that vaccines prevent disease. There are studies that show that vaccinated person contract the disease they are vaccinated for. There are studies that show that vaccines shed and put unvaccinated at risk for the disease(s) I don’t call that prevention, do you?

          • Magnus Tranum

            This entire post is an outright lie from beginning to end. Even the post you replied to has links to vaccine efficacy studies.

            Please show your sources for your statements.

          • Virginia Francella

            Vaccinations don’t prevent disease? Wow.

          • Ann

            I’ve researched this on the CDC web site itself. It states that vaccines do indeed shed and can cause the very disease for which they are “supposed’ to be effective against. Even St. Jude Hospital posts and warns people not to visit patients if you have been recently vaccinated because their immune system has been compromised by treatment and they would catch the disease. They don’t post this warning for nothing! This is why I make the statement that vaccines cause disease. They can and they do, period.

            Look it up yourself. I don’t have to do your research for you. My posts are all based on research. I have no reason to post otherwise. There is nothing in it for me to be less than truthful.

You seem really interested in our Vaccine Injury Court here and what’s going on with our vaccine debate to have really studied up on it. Could you fill us in on what vaccines are mandatory or just recommended for parents in your country? Its too bad the mumps vaccine seems to be failing in your country also…

            Vaccine Failure: Mumps Outbreak Reported In Norway College Students

            by Robert Herriman
            November 8, 2015

            “The Norway Institute for Public Health, or Folkehelseinstituttet has announced a mumps outbreak, primarily among university students. The first reported cases were in the Trondheim area–the Norwegian technical and University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University College of Sør-Trøndelag (HIST) in late October.

            Now the case count hovers around 80 and health officials expect the cases to increase in coming weeks.

            Several of those who are now sick with mumps are Norwegian students who have previously received two doses of MMR vaccine as recommended.

            It is possible to get sick with mumps even if you have been fully vaccinated against the disease, confirming Margrethe Greve-Isdahl, chief physician at the Department of vaccine, Public Health (FHI)”..source outbreak news today

            The following comment from a physician refers to this problem: Comment in response to a July 2008 investigative article by Sharyl Attkisson about conflicts-of-interest of vaccine defenders:

            “Thank you for this piece. As a physician, trained at an Ivy league medical school & residency, I am acutely aware of how ties to the pharmaceutical industry influence almost every level of teaching, training & research. This is done by sponsoring educational events, supporting the academic salaries of professors, & by giving research grants, thereby driving research agendas.”Pharma
            also influences physicians directly, which is currently being investigated by Propublica. The influence of corporate pharmaceutical financial motivations cannot be underestimated & it is a piece of our medical system that ordinary citizens simply do not understand.

            “This plays out in several ways with regard to the vaccine industry. First, SCIENTIFIC STUDIES & DATA (published in mainstream, peer-reviewed journals) that suggest serious safety concerns with vaccines are simply ignored & not integrated into public policy recommendations.
            “Second,
            vaccine safety studies are woefully inadequate & often conducted by the pharmaceutical industry–those studies cherry pick the healthiest children,administer only one vaccine, & follow children for a matter of days.
            “Third (this is related to the second point), vaccines have never been studied in combination & certainly never studied in combinations of 4-5 vaccines at a time, the way they are administered today. NEVER EVER. This is important for several reasons: the immune system is more complex than we had ever imagined when vaccines were developed & the immune system intersects with immune
            & neuroimmune system in important ways, so stimulating the immune system this intensely has implications. In addition, we know from toxicology studies that toxins act synergistically, so that metals (aluminum & sometimes mercury) as well as preservatives (some of them known cancer-causing agents) may, in combination, produce a toxic burden that some children are not able to clear. There is ANIMAL DATA to support neurotoxic effects of current vaccination protocols. Data that has been ignored by policy makers.
            “Those of us who rightfully question the safety of current vaccination policy are often denigrated but I assure you my concerns are based in SCIENCE, not only data about adverse outcomes in animals & HUMANS (autoimmune reactions, narcolepsy, developmental issues) but also about the emerging complexity of the immune & inflammatory systems. I hope this investigation continues.
            “Finally,I would like to add that many physicians share my concerns about vaccination but feel constrained to speak out in academic circles. This is the ultimate compromise of true science & free thinking. Questions should be asked, investigated & answered. To that end, studies of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated outcomes are imperative as are more studies about vaccine safety (a
            conclusion the Institute of Medicine made in their last position paper onvaccination, where they noted that the current vaccination schedule had never been studied.
            been studied).”

        You’re the one who is gullible Magnus. Either that, or you are working for Big Pharma.

        Wake Up People!!! The Gullible Mind”

        It is a psychological processing malfunction that filters out information based on its source rather than its integrity. People who operate from The Gullible Mind tend to have misplaced trust in governments, institutions, mainstream news networks, doctors, teachers, preachers, Politicians, scientists or anyone who wears the garb of apparent authority.

        Whereas a normal, intelligent person would raise commonsense questions about information they receive from all sources, the Gullible Mind wholly accepts virtually any information from sources that occupy the role of apparent authority in society.

        • Magnus Tranum

          So simply because I disagree with you I must be gullible or a part of Big Pharma? Easy to dismiss others when you’re not even willing to consider any other view from the get go.

          Why on earth would I accept what the government, corporations or media tells me cart blanche? The source of the information does matter. A peer reviewed paper in a respectable journal carries more weight than a blog post by some random person who is not educated in the field at hand. However, even then I strive to understand the material to the best of my ability, though I acknowledge that some things are beyond my understanding as I simply lack the education to fully grasp elements of it, even if I get the general gist of the content. For this reason I have to sometimes stand on the shoulders of giants and trust that a consensus amongst those who have the relevant education and knowledge base is what I should accept until such a time as new data changes the current stance.

          Sometimes, the commonsense questions are not at all sensible in the given context. If you simply don’t know what you’re talking about, you may raise concerns that sound sensible to others who don’t know any better, but are utterly ridiculous to anyone who understands the topic. Be wary of becoming a victim of Dunning Kruger, know your own limits as well as being sceptical of the source of the information.

          • Kameron Krause

            So if there is no correlation, then why has the US what people call vaccine court paid out nearly 3 billion in vaccine deaths and damages. And 2 cases at least were specifically given to children that had developed autism after getting vaccinated. Hannah Poling, in 2and Bailey Banks. Hannah Poling receiving 1.5 million alone. The government did it for fun. I don’t think so. The insert on the merk vaccine lists neurological disorders, seizures, epilepsy, diabetes, pacreatitus, the measles and death just to name a few of the adverse reactions. Are they just putting those there for fun too. Why are you so in love with the pharmaceutical companies? Any Company that has 0 liability for their product is suspect to any sane person. If theyre so safe why do they need that protection and why has the federal government payed out so much? And at the rate were going we are gonna have 1 in 10 kids diagnosed with autism by 2020. Are you ready for that? The mortality rate for the measles in this country had declined by 98% before the introduction of the vaccine was ever introduced. And the public that actually caught the measles then had a lifelong immunity not a pretend one that none of us have from being shoved poison into us. Hence the ridiculous boosters. There has NEVER been a study that proves they work . NEVER. Not testing people for antibodies which is only half your immune system. Actually people being exposed tot eh virus after being vaccinated and seeing if they catch it. Show it to me . Youcant because it doesn’t exist. Its a lie. And how do they figure out the efficacy? By testing for antibodies. That doesn’t prove you cant catch the virus. Again they haven’t exposed them so how can they say it works? They cant. And theres never been a study by pharma or CDC I saw them tell a congressional panel to see if giving children under 1 years old 26 vaccines with toxins and live viruses sometimes up to 9 in a visit causes any damage. I don’t need to be a doctor to know that theres no way that can be good for an adult let alone an infant. How about we test it out on you and see what happens.you go do the childs vaccine schedule and get back to us.

          • Magnus Tranum

            Oh my. That’s a lot of misconceptions in a single wall of text.

            1: Court cases are not evidence for anything other than people winning their case. They do not have the same rigorous standard for evidence that the scientific method demands. Or do you believe that courts never get it wrong? It is an unfortunate fact that in some cases people have escaped jail sentences because they convinced the judge or jury despite the evidence being entirely one sided.
            That being said, vaccines are of course not entirely without possible side effects, and they are well known and thankfully rare. Autism is not one of them.

            2:Luckily, due to the advance of general medicine, the mortality rate for measles had been steadily dropping for a long time before the introduction of the vaccine, isn’t modern medicine grand? Though I would like to see a source for this 98% number you throw out, it needs context. The number of measles cases however was still very high, and you don’t have to die from measles to have permanent scarring and other potential chronic effects. Also, mortality was much higher in countries with a less sturdy healthcare system. This is still the case even today. But why just treat, why not rid society of this cost all together? Once the vaccine was introduced, the number of cases in the US alone fell from nearly half a million a year to about 20k a year in only 4 years. That is a massive victory, and a huge saver of both lives and money.

            3:As for there never having been a study to prove the vaccine works. Where are you reading this garbage. Firstly, you can check any historical data of cases in any country that has introduced mandatory vaccinations to see how patently wrong that is. As for a study, here is one, found after mere seconds with google.
            http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMms1215400

            How can you be so misinformed when it is so easy to find out the answers to your accusations?

            4: As for the rates of Autism, some of the numbers are scary and we really should put effort into finding out the causes. Part of it is increased diagnostic efforts, and a broader definition, but much of it is certainly to do with our lifestyles or other factors. However, when people like you muddy the waters with nonsense like the vaccine-autism link that doesn’t exist, you only hinder this work.

            5: You bring up toxins. What toxins? Everything in a vaccine is not even remotely toxic at the levels that are found in a shot, or even a hundred shots. This is tested to death. How else do you think they know all the potential side effects?

            6: Yes, you do need to be a doctor, and not just any doctor either but an immunologist, to know whether this is good or not. You do not have the education required to understand how it works, so listen to the people who do and the data that supports them.

            I have had all my shots growing up, and have had no issues. That is not relevant though, since my anecdotal evidence is as little worth as any other persons anecdotal evidence. I read and accept the science, not the words of any news outlet, blogger or crackpot website that suddenly thinks they are in any position to make comments on things they have absolutely no knowledge about.

            If the Merck inserts say that then Merck is run by morons. More likely as stated elsewhere someone recently vaccinated had been involved in these incidents. Possibly the vaccine effected their behavior, its not impossible when they acknowledge fainting, seizures, weakness and death already.

            Hannah poling didn’t have autism. Poling was diagnosed months later
            with encephalopathy (brain disease) caused by a mitochondrial enzyme deficit, a mitochondrial disorder; it is not unusual for children with such deficits to develop neurologic signs between their first and second years. The ruling concluded that, in the case of Bailey Banks, the MMR had caused a condition known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM).

Would you want your kid to get that from a vaccine. I wouldn’t . But I don’t have to worry about that since he wont be getting any vaccine. You shoot yourself and your family with that garbage.

            Dr. John Poling was granted 1.6 million dollars and 500,000 dollars per year for his daughter until she dies. He is a neurologist and he knew that the vaccines caused mitochondrial damage to his child as many medications do. This large sum was hush money to keep him quiet about the autism and damage vaccines caused. That is the reason that his family did not want her to become a poster child for autism. That huge settlement was an incentive for him and his family to keep quiet. HUSH MONEY.. Hannah’s mitochondrial damage and thus autism was caused by vaccines. Do you think that any other child would be given that compensation for vaccine injury? Answer; NO!

I’ll give you a head start: in 1952 polio caused 3,100 dead and over 20,000 paralyzed. If you figure that at $250,000 for death (standard Vaccine Court award) and $1 million for paralysis (lifetime care will be provided), we’re up near $3 billion from one disease in one year.

          No they can, and its documented. Have you heard of Classical autism (born with) and regressive (after a series of vaccines). The Genome project found ONLY a high of 15% had inherited genes. 85% did not. Their condition was thought to be caused by environmental sources. The 2 main entities that cause spontaneous gene mutation is viral and toxins. What’s in vaccines Jethro?

  • awakenedone

    Why don’t you say that to the tens of thousands of parents whose children developed autism directly after receiving their vaccines? If you did any research whatsoever into the truth of this, you wouldn’t be so harsh and ignorant.

    • joan

      Whos to say thse children were not going to develop autism anyway….. thats like saying 100 women swam in the ocean and then got their period when they reached the age of 13. So swimming in te ocean casues women to get their period your an idiot!

    I’m in high school, and even I want to rip my eyes out after reading this article. Two-sided my ace! Never did the author provide any real argument for the other side without being like, “Keep in mind that this is complete BS.” I definitely feel this article is credible when ads are flashing in my face from every blank space on the page. Also, the author writes like they never graduated high school. He or she is horribly repetitive to make length, and has terrible grammar. I mean honestly, all of the people arguing in the comments for this article are idiotic. Do your own research instead of trusting an article on a site that provides links to, “Sexy Celebs With Hideous Spouse” and “Secret Brain Pill Billionaires Are Using.”

YES THE FACT THAT MOST OF THE COMMUNITY ARE IMMUINSED IS WHY THESE DISEASES ARE RARE, THE PROBLEM IS THAT IF MORE IDIOTIC PEOPLE JOIN YOUR BELIEFS THEN WE WILL SEE THE REINTRODUCTION OF THESE DISEASES AND THATS THE WHOLE ARGUMENT. YOU ARE BASING YOUR CHOICES ON THE SMALL CHANCE OF POSSIBLE REACTIONS TO VACCINES ONLY BECUASE THE GRUESOME REALTY OF THE DISEASES ARE NOT COMMON….WELL THATS DUE TO VACCINES!your mentality is like saying becasue the rest of the community abide by the 100 speed limit ill be ok to drive 150. imagine everyone drove 150, there would be much more instances of road deaths etc etc. think about what your doing or move to a lone island with The rest of the unimmunised people, i bet you wount last very long you will all be gone within a few years…try it would that be a great experiment ? i mean you shuld be worried right?

      you are missing the point… if you ar immunized then what are you worried about?.. if this wont effect you because you are “immune” due to your vaccine.. then why harp on others that choose not to vaccinate?… if only the ones not vaccinated can get effected then thats their problem. unless you are saying vaccines are ineffective and you cans till get sick?

      • Djmarquart

        Because, even when immunized, if the disease sees a resurgence, it can mutate and spread to those who have been immunized. Please, for your kids and my child’s health, get them vaccinated!

      • Yiannab

        What Djmarquart said but also what about the children too young to be
        vaccinated? And what about cancer patients with low immune systems? You
        don’t only put yourself at risk by not getting vaccinated, but also
        millions of young and sick children……let alone the fear of the

      It is a psychological processing malfunction that filters out information based on its source rather than its integrity. People who operate from The Gullible Mind tend to have misplaced trust in governments, institutions, mainstream news networks, doctors, teachers, preachers, Politicians, scientists or anyone who wears the garb of apparent authority.

      Whereas a normal, intelligent person would raise commonsense questions about information they receive from all sources, the Gullible Mind wholly accepts virtually any information from sources that occupy the role of apparent authority in society.

    But people keep repeating the lie that autism isn’t rising. And all those sheep that blindly believe all the lies the pharmaceutical and medical establishment of course believe this without question. Sweet dreams…

    • Jaymz Bondurant

      • creox

        1 in 2000 in the 70’s and 80’s to less than 1 in 100 today. Sure…keep drinking the kool aide.

          That made absolutely no sense what so ever. You are saying 1 in 100 dies from preventable deseases today, compared to 1 in 2000 before the vaccines? Because thats what I was talking about.

          When it comes to the rise of ADD/ADHD and the likes, you need to look at other stuff. Because guess what numbnuts. In the 70s and 80 all the kids were ALSO vaccinated. ADD and ADHD werent even included as a diagnosis for most kids. They were simply unruly, or stupid. And they never GOT a diagnosis, since there basically werent one.

    There was a time that measles was a big problem because there was poverty and undernourishment. That is why in Africa children die of measles.

    Healthy children in the west that have enough vitamine A and C have nothing to fear from measles. But a lot to fear from the MMR vaccine.

    • Jaymz Bondurant

      Jeroen68, yet more ignorance and bullshit. “Children in the west are healthy enough that they have nothing to fear from Measles”? That’s absolutely retarded. Children in the west have NEVER been healthy enough to not have to deal with it. What are you talking about? It was because of VACCINES that we completely eradicated the disease from our country. Now look what’s happening. A bunch of idiots stopped vaccinated their children and guess what?!?!? Measles are back!!! Kids are dying from a disease that SHOULD have been 100% preventable. Oops. Now all these idiot anti-vaccine morons are burying their children. Good job. Your ignorant points of view are killing innocent children.

      • Exactly how many children have died from measles in the USA in the last year? Before you call someone an idiot, at least get the correct statistics. Measles was normal when I was a child. I don’t know a single one who died or who had any adverse effects other than being bored to death from having to stay indoors for a week. Over 100,000 people die of Tylenol poisoning every year and no one blinks an eye. Where’s the outrage there? No one dies of measles and the media freaks out. It’s so absurd if you really understand it.

Can anyone here see what is wrong with that?

    lmao I see so many pro vaxxers comments, and I believe they have not even engaged in reading all the creditable materials provided in the links.. If one was to engage in educating themselves with materials coming from creditable sources provided in this article, and promoting their opinions (pro vaccines) as facts without any creditable sources attached to their opinions (most links will be from bias peer reviews) then I feel your opinion is not valid as it is not back with factual information coming from creditable sources.. I am not saying I am against, or for.. I am remaining neutral at this point.. but what I do want to see is the society that the pro vaccine propaganda is being fed to, wake up and search both sides of the coin.. then make a solid well rounded decision as to whether or not you will or will not vaccinate.. I also suggest looking into the track records of the vaccine makers to see if any have outstanding lawsuits against them from past drugs they have produced. would you by a vaccine for your child from a criminal? nope you wouldn’t.. so what makes these vaccines production companies any better? they have length track records of corruptions and unethical behaviors.. all you need to do is search.. I know that most pro vaxxers will see this comment and go straight to ridicule over having an open dialog to work towards understanding in order to eliminate ignorance.. peace n love to all! <3

  • disqus_lpTcXWvTkw

    they are not terrified of lawsuits.

And our government release pharmas from liability and the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/index.html created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) funded with your “tax per dose” to pay for the injuries http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/vaccinetable.html in 1998 there were 9 vaccines on the injury list; today there are 16. There is no regulatory mandate that all vaccines are made with the same formula by all pharma.

  • Annonymous

    There is a correlation between autism and vaccine. That is the time of vaccination typically correlates with the age at which children with autism begins to show characteristics. But, that is about it.
    What about the children that have not been vaccinated, that still develop autism?
    Recent research has indicated that parents that have a child with autism are less likely to vaccinate their younger children. However, despite a reduction in the amount of children being vaccinated, there is no difference regarding these younger siblings developing autism from those that did receive a vaccine.
    Just something else to think about, people.

  • Sam

    If everyone but me is vaccinated then I will be the only one getting the disease . I cant transmit it to you due to the fact that you have taken the vaccines, right?, SO WHAT THE %$#@ DOES IT MATTER ?! Your stupid data doesnt contain the foreign retro viruses, monkey, rat, cat, and God-know-what-else-dna. Aborted Fetal Tissue, Aluminum, Thimerisol, MSG and a litany of other compounds known to be abusive to the human brain can also be found in these shots.

    • dvs

      Vaccines are not 100% effective for every single person; vaccines protect people through herd immunity, meaning everyone around you has to be vaccinated for it to make a difference. Also, herd immunity protects babies who are too young to be vaccinated and people who are not be able to be vaccinated due to allergies and such. Think of it as driving a car. If YOU decide to be a reckless driver, you are endangering yourself and everyone around you. Similarly, if you are a safe driver, it isn’t enough that only you drive safely. Everyone around you also has to drive safely for it to actually matter.

      • BlueCollarCritic

        @dvs

        Herd immunity is just a theory. There have been no scientific studies demonstrating that Herd Immunity is anything more than a theory. Just to clarify, a review by persons (regardless of their background) of other studies that come to the conclusion that Herd Immunity exists does NOT qualify as a scientific study. If ‘Herd Immunity’ really existed the pharmaceutical industry would be pouring millions into studies proving Herd Immunity. If no one had come up with the idea of Herd Immunity it would be impossible to argue for forced vaccination. Herd Immunity is a fear based mechanism for convincing the masses to agree to force vaccinate any who do not want to be vaccinated.

        • anonymous

          I haven’t found any scientific studies for Herd Immunity. because i didn’t search. come on you dumbf*ck it’s common logic. if you are sick and no one else around you has that disease and there is a person close to you who isn’t vaccinated for that disease and he gets sick, then it’s only logic that it was you who infected the person. if that person was vaccinated then he probably wouldn’t have become sick.
          P.S. Autism isn’t a “thing” that you can get from a vaccine. it is something that you get at birth.

        Herd Immunity =No Such Thing!

        • VikingAPRNCNP

          • Bjorn Fowler

            No, wild antigen are part of a virus that starts destroying your cells instead. This can kill you, hence you vaccinate.

          • AutismDadd

            Hence you education was a waste of time. If herd immunity ONLY works if there’s 95% uptake, then it never works because that number is bogus and 95% of the population NEVER happens. If 90% uptake exists then the vaccine doesn’t work??? How illogical is that. Oh and I’ll have a milkshake instead of pop.

            ” If herd immunity ONLY works if there’s 95% uptake, then it never works

            Only because of idiots like you. Hence you make them mandatory.
            That said you get a minor herd immunity effect with smaller proportion of vaccinated people (evidenced by how rare it is to get measles in a highly vaccinated country)

            Now f**k off troll

          • AutismDadd

            95% for it to be effective enough to protect the immunocompromised. Herd immunity is a very real phenomenon regardless of how deep your head is in the sand.

          • AutismDadd

            How about protecting immunocompromised by keeping them safety in a restricted area? The real world isn’t 100% sanitized. Even at McDonalds they make you clean right? And wash hands before you start flippin patties right? So the I compromised shouldn’t be taken into the public areas.

            So yeah, WOW talk about dumbass, you are a prime example of why humanity is f**ked.

            If everyone vaccinated, then the disease is what’s isolated and it eventually dies out. Then it doesn’t make it to the immunocompromised in the hospital (because completely isolating everyone on immunosuppressant drugs is just impractical. There’s not enough room in a hospital and would cost a small fortune per person.
            Or you could get your f**king 10$ vaccine and benefit yourself and them.

          • AutismDadd

            So you think hospitals are safe for I-compromised then (snicker)? And you think vaccines NEVER fail (snicker)? And who said isolate on drugs? That’s a death sentence.

            Did you suddenly discover a dictionary? Using words like sophomore, astute and narcissistic doesn’t make you look any smarter. Though ironically does flag you as a narcissist.

            As for calling people astrobrat would I be correct in guessing this is part of a crackpot conspiracy theory where you stupidly believe I’m being paid to post here? If so, you’re even stupider than I’ve been giving you credit for.

          • suz norkan

            1. Given that vax has caused serious and life threatening injury and death to a large population, and has NEVER been proved unequivocally safe OR effective by a unanimous scientific consensus, while adversely effecting many with tentative genetic anomalies, only an uneducated and/or unenlightened parent would unwisely vax their child, especially sans outbreaks!

            2. My comments are NOT ‘anti vax’ because I honestly don’t CARE how many, at what intervals, or what type of prophylactic intervention you or any of you ‘forced vax,’ astroBRATS choose to engage in!

            3a. I’ve always talked like this, [excelled in english and grammar] as have all of my children, from the time they were 3, and all had above average iq! No urban dic ‘trash talking’ like yall do today, for my children!

            3b. Thanks silly astrobrat for your great faux pas & a good guffaw!

            Case in point; if you’re too obtuse to know what ‘sophomoric’ means, you lack the intellect to be giving ‘life and death’ advice to parents. And since it appears that you just recently graduated and a truly a neophyte, I doubt that you are even a parent!

            3c. I don’t need to ‘look smart.’ I AM smart, so why would I care what you in the unsophisticated communities think of me!

            4. You may or may not associate with a ring of astroBRATS; who are astroturfers AND little BRATS! I don’t know you well enough yet to decide definitely ‘yea or nay,’ so am only covering all my bases! However, from what I’ve seen of you so far, you fit the bill, FOULer!

            5. I don’t know ‘NO’ anti vaxers! 😉

          • Bjorn Fowler

            1. A false antivaxx lie, unless you have the evidence to prove it.
            2. You’re spread false information and refuse to vaccinate your own kids, that’s anti-vaccination
            3a. Good for you
            3b. I’ve been a graduate for 4 years.
            3c. HAHAHAHAHA good joke, but seriously, based on what you’ve said so far (with point 1 being a good reference) you’re f**king dumb as s**t
            4. Astroturfers aren’t a thing dips**t, no one would pay me to argue with a troll.
            5. You ARE an antivaxxer and so is everyone in your follow list. Stop f**king lying, you’ve been caught out long ago. If you weren’t an anti-vaxxer, you wouldn’t be spreading the lies that vaccines injure and kill.

          • suz norkan

            1. The onus is on you [vax manufax] to prove that it’s safe! You CAN’T!

            2a. I tell truths and dispel lies and propaganda told by the indoctrinated like you.

            2b. It’s NOT anti vax if I don’t oppose vax for the general public! I don’t! I’m NOT! Get over it!

            3a. Thank you! Just one of my many successful achievements and accomplishments!

            3b. Still a baby and so gullible and naive, astroBRAT!

            3c. Sorry! Your rant is illegible! Perhaps you should learn to spell without having to use stars, FOULer!

            4. ‘Astroturfers aren’t things!’ I concur! Astroturfers are individuals and you’re confusing astroturfer with shill!

            5. I don’t know ‘NO’ anti vaxers! 😉

            No, you won’t because there is no evidence. I already know there is no evidence, showing your inability to provide it is merely a formality.

          • Phil

            Because when you vaccinate so many people there are those that will react badly. That is the same with most drugs like antibiotics, or other things we may ingest like eggs or nuts.
            I read this article because it said it was going to look at both sides of the question, apparently this fella does not read his own material as he only report studies that show that there MAY be a connection. He never looked at the much larger studies that showed that any connection could not be verified.
            Come on people we know that vaccines have changed our abilities to fight off disease, but it only makes sense for us to try and make them as safe as possible. It is why the study into our individual DNA is so important so that we can tailor medicine to each individual. Medicine only moves forward so get behind it because that will not change.

HAHAHA Listen to yourself PATHETIC!

          • Bjorn Fowler

            You can question all you want. Doesn’t mean you’re right or even understand the topic.
            If you had even a rudimentary understanding of the immune system, you’d realise it’s actually a good idea.
            Or would you rather see epidemics of diseases that are almost completely eradicated?

          • Nick Jenkins

            I am sure you are an Immunologist that could teach us all about the correct way to view the immune system. So please go right a head. While you are at it why dont you look into cytokine storms that result from vaccinations. I believe that the toxic soup that they call vaccines work a little to well and potentially cause irreversible damage from inflammation because our immune systems (if they have not been modulated from vaccines) work very well on there own. Why do we think we know better than our innate

            Give me some advice Jethro.

        • DigMed

          Not really. Herd immunity is real but it comes at a terrible cost. It involves many generations of “culling” the herd of susceptible members until the surviving generations have developed a general, if not complete, resistance to a disease. Of course, when herd immunity doesn’t occur we call the result extinction.

          • AutismDadd

            Nice try making that argument. Thanks for the comedy

          • DigMed

            You’re the last person anyone who knows anything about science would expect to understand this fundamental tenet of biology. What’s so gratifying is that you wear your ignorance so defiantly making it all the more fun to slap you down.

        I agree 100%. However, every parent has the right to know prior to any medical procedure, the possible outcomes. It is incredible to me that these people choose money over informing parents of what to look for after a vaccination is given. Furthermore, they should be researching this development instead of denying the finding. Sick.

  • Sam

    Haha, anonymous coward. Vaccines are not the sole cause but in a world flooded with toxins they are often enough to trigger a reaction. To call people idiots for fearing for their own safety and choosing methods that have been effective FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE HUMAN RACE until JD Rockefeller bought out the medical establishment 100 years ago and put up a financial gate to control the type of care available is despicable and idiotic.

    • K

      Your nutty-crunchy opinion about “choosing methods that have been effective for the entirety of the human race” is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. Ya, those “natural” methods worked for everyone… except for those who died of natural causes (disease, famine, etc.). That’s natural selection people: the strong survive and the weak (that’s the majority of the population) die off. Sam, if you want to contribute to solving our population crisis and go out the natural way from measles or the flu, be my guest. Just don’t rope your kids into it when they don’t know any better, and don’t go crying to your doctor (who probably could’ve saved your life) when you’re on your death bed. While you’re at it you can give your spot to someone from a third world country with crappy medical care, who has probably seen family and friends die because all they have access to is “methods that have been effective [or at least around] for the entirety of the human race.”

    • drone iao

      it’s a low chance at a mild developmental disorder or a high chance at death, slow horrible painful death. seriously, why is this still an argument when things like measles exist? your immune system is weaker after you get over it, there is no way to develop immunity to diseases like measles because it uses your immune system to try to kill you.

  • Andy Currin

    point 1 is bollocks. the referenced study found more DIAGNOSED autisim in vaccinated children. Its quite likely that parents who don’t vaccinate also don’t go through the autisim diagnosis process, doesn’t mean their kid hasn’t got autisim so to say this indicates vaccinated children are more likey to have autisim is a blatant lie, it simply indicates vaccinated children are more likely to be diagnosed…probably because their parent care and take them to real doctors

  • Jacko

    Your opening statement, “PEOPLE WHO DON’T WANT VACCINATIONS SHOULD MOVE TO AN ISLAND TO PROTECT THE REST OF US.” is reverse logic. If vaccines worked, you wouldn’t have to worry about becoming ill due to someone who is not vaccinated. As a health care practitioner, one of my responsibilities is educating those I work with. I do not leave anything to chance or guesswork. That is why, over the years I have amassed over 15,000 medical studies on my hard drive and back up. I can equivocally state what is cited above is the tip of the iceberg with dozens and dozens of other studies showing:
    1) Vaccines rarely work – most children who become ill WERE
    ALREADY vaccinated
    2) the reasoning of vaccines was flawed from the beginning
    3) history shows the reduction of many disease prior to vaccine
    implementation through proper hygiene
    4) Most disease is the result of poor nutrition, unclean water and
    lack of hygiene

    That aside, this country was founded on the principles of freedom and liberty. That means YOU are supposed to be responsible for your health, not me. If you or your children eat crap food, use drugs, don’t exercise, and drink beer, then you damn well better not infringe on my being responsible for taking the steps to be healthy. The average American is ignorant beyond compare and is lazy, choosing to depend on others (government, the “health care system” which is really more about disease) to take care of them. Get off your ass and do some REAL research before you make stupid comments as you did.

    • drone iao

      hey guess what! the first measles death since the invention of vaccines just happened now that 9% of the population have stopped using them! what a strange coincidence!

      • AutismDadd

        Wrong . Nice misinformation though.

  • Common Sense

    Don’t read below this. just a bunch of people fighting about nothing. It doesn’t matter what others think. I believe autism is somewhat related, but I still vaccinate. If you want to, go ahead and vaccinate. If you don’t, then your kids might get other diseases. Your choice.

  • BanishedJester

    If you look at the instance of diseases in large populations before the introduction of vaccines you will find that public health measures and sanitation practices far outweigh putting poisons in the body at young age.
    And the “elites” want to create a dumbed down public just smart enough to do the mundane work and just stupid enough not to raise a fuss about the diminishing quality of life. What are the avenues to such an outcome? Fluoride, vaccination, toxic food, watered down educations and standards, socialized institutions, collective mindset to belittle individual informed decisions and so on. This list is long. Those of you who want to inflict decisions on others are the problem. Those who do not want to vaccinate have every right to make that decision. And that does not necessarily put others at risk. Besides if you are vaccinated and you believe in your Kool-Aid then what are you worried about?

  • E_Eriksen

    “may”, “could” and “possibly” and “might”…

  • Linus1982

    I do not work for big pharma. I do remember my schoolfriends sister who had severe brain damage after catching measles as a six month old baby and I have also had a work colleague who was deaf after measle infection in early childhood. These would have occured in the days before vaccination. So to avoid cases like these vaccinate. It was not improved living conditions and sanitation which stopped cases like these, that was already in. Vaccination was needed and it is saving thousands of lives every year. Any one who says otherwise is in denial and does not know their medical and social history, and what these diseases are capable of even now.

  • Anonymous 2

    “The positive correlation between Al exposure from vaccines and
    prevalence of ASD does not necessarily imply causation.”- the study Arjun Walia mentioned in this article from Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry. No legitimate scientist uses the word “cause” in their research unless they are saying causation is not implied by correlation.

  • BlueCollarCritic

    @Pro-Vaccine Pushers
    If vaccines are safe why then is there a National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) ?

    This Federally administered program which is also known as Vaccine Court, hears all claims of injuries caused by any vaccines. Anyone harmed by a vaccine can not by Federal law take the vaccine manufacturer or anyone else to court. They must instead petition this Federal court.

    According to the HRSA (under the Dept of Health and Human Services) as of March 2014 the NVICP program has awarded 3,535 petitioners a total of 2.6 Billion dollars for damages caused by vaccines. The same vaccines that you and the media and the pharmaceutical industry all say are safe.

    If vaccines are so safe why does the National Vaccine Injury Compensation program even exist?

    If these vaccines were as safe as claimed there would be no such need for this court and even if you could find a way to reasonably argue for why the Vaccine court should exist you still can’t explain how this many people can be awarded this much money if vaccines are safe.

    • VikingAPRNCNP

      3500 cases over 4billion vaccination events over 30 years is less than 1 in a million.

      A rubella infection prior to 16 weeks gestation has a 100% fetal death or disability rate. (60/40).

      Measles has a 1/250 death or disability rate.(death or cognitive or sensory disability).

      Which is the larger number? 1 per 250 or 1 per million? The risk benefit ratio favors vaccination.

  • K

    Everyone who thinks that vaccines are bad, for whatever reason, is a complete moron. I’m sorry, but if any of you heard the stories from people going through an epidemic, you would be BEGGING for an immunization. Polio for example: parents were terrified, out of their minds with fear, to let their children out of the house for fear that the kids would catch it. About 10% of children who caught polio died from respiratory paralysis, and many of the others were handicapped for life. Thanks to the vaccine, polio was almost eradicated in the US. Measles: vaccines caused a 75% drop in mortality rate, but it’s still one of the leading causes of death of young children around the world because of the places where it’s hard to get vaccinated and receive good health care. This Ebola outbreak in Africa? I’d bet they all would’ve given anything for a vaccine. I feel genuinely sorry for any unfortunate child that grows up with one the ignorant crackpots on this site; they’ll have stupidity shoved in their faces, will be at high risk for deadly disease, and will end up contributing to the problem (the problem where more and more people choose to put their child’s life at stake by refusing vaccines, and in doing so they weaken the herd immunity and make everyone else at risk for disease, even if they’ve been vaccinated.)
    I know I can’t change the minds of the stubborn, misinformed people who are against vaccines, but hopefully we can stop them from polluting the minds of people who don’t know any better.
    BY THE WAY: when you or your kid drops dead from a disease that could’be been prevented with vaccines, you can comfort yourself knowing that you took the “natural” way out. Natural selection people, that’s how it works…

  • cruscntrl

    Well, a great debate. I met a woman once who told me her baby started to develop symptoms a few weeks after an MMR vaccination. Her baby became a spasmodic quadriplegic. Hard to prove I suppose. She was not vested in a lawsuit outcome. She felt that the vaccination was the cause. How many of you know someone else that claims their baby or child had side effects from vaccination? She was not part of any study. What about immune compromise? I don’t think there are any studies on this. Are statistical studies the end all and be all? If you study chaos theory then perhaps you understand that there are statistical links everywhere. Perhaps statistical studies can contradict themselves according to what answers you are looking for? And say I find 3 out of a thousand, which is statistically insignificant unless of course you are one of the 3 then it becomes extremely significant. People believe in the studies that support their opinion. People look for words that support their opinion. Other questions: Do diseases run their own course with or without vaccination? No plague or disease has ever wiped out humanity. How big is the sanitation and hygiene factor? The whole world has drastically improved sanitation and hygiene over the last century. How big is the corporate influence factor? Are these large corporations that manufacture vaccines without self interest? How big a factor is “fear” in all these discussions. How many believe that there is a virus waiting to destroy all of humankind as in “The Last Ship” television series? How many fear their children will be infected and either be harmed or die because another child is not vaccinated? How much does fear play a part in marketing vaccines? Are vaccines a great product for marketing? Billions of dollars are at play, you can get the majority of the public to do it (millions of people), it is difficult to prove there are side effects, if they don’t work, well nothing is 100% right, the times it doesn’t work can be written off as statistically insignificant. Do vaccinations really infer immunity? If so why is anyone worried about a non vaccinated child having an illness? How could your vaccinated child catch it? Oh, yes well vaccinations really don’t infer very strong immunity I guess. Well, oh hell, its just easier to call everyone else morons that disagree with my opinion.

    PLEASE READ {{{Especially if you go to Naturopaths}}}To all of the nutty-crunchies out there, I just want to point out that, while Big Pharma may be profiting from vaccines, doctors and nurses in private practices and hospitals are not. In fact, they often lose money in the distribution and administration of the vaccines. If they were trying to mooch off the gullible, they could do it much better ways. They know their stuff, and most stay informed with current studies in medical journals. They would tell their patients if vaccines were dangerous. (Plus, banks profit off you, grocery stores profit off you, yet you use these because you need them. Vaccines are the same way.)
    Secondly, please stop saying that doctors only want your money. While that is, unfortunately true for some, the vast majority sincerely care about their patients. And, greedy or not, there are rules and regulations that prevent them from taking advantage of their patients. If the answer was simple, like a diet change or exercise, they tell you; they don’t give you a “miracle pill” to make money off of your ignorance.
    However, those naturopaths very often do not know anything of medical or scientific value and truly do take advantage of every single one of their patients, and there are not regulations and rules in place to protect patients like there are in real doctors’ practices. Please, just look at your bill for one of those people, who will probably order blood work for you, testing at least fifteen different conditions when a doctor who actually knows what he or she is doing could diagnose it on-site or with only one or two tests. Blood work can get expensive, don’t waste your money. Also, you might think your naturopath knows her stuff because you went to her for something minor and felt better after treatment. That may be coincidence, or she (or he) may actually know how to help treat minor things with natural medications (which I’m fine with, don’t get me wrong). If there is a vitamin deficiency that they pick up on and only give you that one medicine, fine and dandy.The thing is, though, many, many people actually get sick because of their naturopaths; countless people go to see their doctors feeling ill because the “natural doctor” (NOT A DOCTOR!) told them to take a multitude of vitamins, and it messes with their systems. Many people suffer liver problems, too, because of it.
    Lastly, please find a doctor that you like, and trust him/her. And, please understand that I’m not being judgmental on anyone but the naturopaths (who I’ve seen kill people by accident because they weren’t treating the condition or disease properly [or at all]). I’m just trying to help.

  • I’ve the flu twice in the last 15 years and both times I felt like crap but felt like a million bucks when it was over. It’s nature’s way to burn out the viruses and bacterias, get the immune system busy and strengthened, etc. I don’t mind getting sick every 5 or 10 ten years since it helps immunity and will increase life expectancy. I don’t catch all the stuff other people around me do. It’s only when I am in an unhealthy situation like no sleep or excessive mold exposure or stress (got that one handled now!). And no vaccine can stop that. I don’t eat junk or GMO food. I look 10-20 years younger than my age. I was polluted with mercury and over 20 years ago (before Jenny McCarthy or before I had Internet) I found out about the dangers of vaccines and immediately decided to stop vaccinating my baby. Actually I was horrified to find out that I had been lied to. I thought vaccines were healthy but the reality is I had given permission for a stranger to inject the most toxic non-radioactive element on the planet into my helpless infant who had to suffer the consequences her whole life. No easy life when every penny was spent looking for a cure for her daily migraines and gut issues due to the few vaccines she did get. All my friends have paid for houses and are on easy street. Not me. Big bucks to get her well but it was worth it. I didn’t know about “Big Pharma”. I knew nothing. Just followed the advice in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”. Doing the “right thing”. I will never forget the horror and shock when I found out what I did. It’s surprising that so few can recognize it. It’s like a mass hypnosis has taken place.

      You know that vaccines don’t contain mercury, right?

  • It used to be normal to get measles. I never heard of any epidemics and I’m Canadian. I’m old too. Never seen anyone die of it and all my peers got measles. We are now immune and passed that immunity on to our children if we breastfed. Measles are not a big deal.

    People get so heated on this topic. I wonder (and am frightened by the implications of) why people would get so upset that I (like many other parents) did my research and have elected to quit vaccinating my kids. There are many people that think it would be appropriate to throw me in jail, take my kids away, and then inject them with ‘battery’ of vaccinations. Parents need to have the right to know the true pros and cons of vaccines and make the best decision for their own children. It is morally reprehensible to force vaccines on children of aprents that believe vaccines have caused countless cases of autism and behavioral problems.

  • Magnus Tranum

    I understand you are quite passionate about this, and wish to combat corruption and misinformation. The error you make, however, is that you extend specific cases to the general. That there is corruption where there are large sums of money is not at all in dispute. What is in dispute apparently is how far does such corruption go.

    If you believe that the pharmaceutical companies manage to somehow maintain a conspiracy of such a scale that they literally rewrite history all across the world, have all scientists in their pockets and control information completely, except for when random blogs ‘out’ them on the internet, you are utterly deluded. The entire premise implodes under it’s own irrationality.

    Are you not aware, that vaccines are so effective at preventing disease, that it seriously cuts into the profits of most pharmaceuticals. There is so much more money to be made from treating many of these diseases than preventing them, and it is thanks to government regulation that there is such a large market for vaccines at all. Why this point seems to fly right over the average anti-vaxxer’s head is quite surprising to me.

    I also see that your source of choice is an opinion blog which only sources itself. Not exactly very trustworthy. Be careful of believing opinions and articles who don’t cite any valid data. It’s often written with an agenda in mind.

    If you want to debate specific points, I welcome the opportunity. There are certainly things we can agree on. If all you wish is to generally cry wolf about the evils of big pharma, then there is nothing to be said for you are just one more in a long line of deluded alarmists who fear what they don’t understand, and prefer to keep it that way.

      The vaccine court pays out billions for vaccine injury. I think that this speaks for itself. Vaccines are dangerous and life-threatening. I would not give a vaccine to a dog!

      • Magnus Tranum

        Vaccine courts follow the legal guidelines, and follow the adage of ‘better compensate too much than too little’. Many of the cases brought up are never sufficiently documented, but cases are still won based on anecdotes and sob stories, as claimants are usually given the benefit of the doubt while the pharmaceuticals hedge their bets in all things to make sure they are covered and don’t face further litigation charges from sue-happy claimants.
        Remember also that this is legal court, not a scientific study. Their actions have no bearing on what is scientifically accurate or true. Or do you trust the findings of a court over the collective data and consensus from the scientific community? This despite the fact that you read about miscarriages of justice on a daily basis?

        If you wish to discuss vaccines, then discuss the facts. Not peripheral issues that at the end of the day don’t matter.

        • Ann

          This is a bunch of bogus information. Vaccine court does not pay out any amount of money that they deem unnecessary, but is the altruistic thing to do. Vaccine court is there to protect the vaccine industry, not the injured.
          Vaccine court has experts trying to shoot down any claims of vaccine injury and it takes experts in the field of vaccine injury to win the case in favor of the claimants. These claimants have to prove beyond a doubt that these injuries were caused by vaccines. This proof is what I am talking about…vaccines have been proven to cause autism and other neurological brain damage. I’m sticking to the facts and this is not a peripheral issue. Nice try though!

        • Ann

          Your comment is just a bunch of smoke and mirrors and double-speak. You claim inside knowledge that cases are just sob stories. Gee, you must be psychic! In answer to your question, do I trust the findings of the scientific community and the court system? Answer: NO!

          • Magnus Tranum

            I have not claimed any magical inside knowledge, but anyone with an even cursory insight into how civil courts work will know that the bar for proving your case is rather lower than, say, criminal court.
            Why don’t you trust the findings of the scientific community?

          • Ann

            “Why don’t you trust the findings of the scientific community?”

            Are you serious? The scientific community has been so wrong so many times. People are sick and dying because of the “unintentional consequences” in procedures and concoctions produced and tested by the scientific community. They test and ok products that kill people. 100,000 people die each year from scientifically tested drugs. That is one every 5 minutes. Scientists think they are smarter than God. Well, I have news for them, you can’t improve on God.

          • Magnus Tranum

            Yes of course I am serious, and I see that your distrust stems from a lack of understanding on what science is, how the scientific method works and how to decide what knowledge should be accepted and why. It is quite a lot of ground to cover if I were to explain these concepts to you, and not knowing how you will take them I’m not sure it would be worth the effort without you actually wanting it.
            If you are interested in learning about such things, ask me and I will try to explain and provide good reading material for you to attack. Being scientifically literate isn’t something that just happens, it has to be learned. Just like normal literacy has to be learned. Though, the basic principles are not very hard to grasp, so you will not have a lot of difficulty understanding them if you wish to learn about them.

            I will not disagree on drugs being the source of too much damage, though this is almost always due to misuse or overuse. Especially a problem in the US where there is a lot of financial incentive to prescribe pills left, right and center.

            As for god, well that’s an entirely different topic and one where we would definitely not see eye to eye methinks.

    Do you people defending these vaccines have a child with autism, I think not. Well I do! I know that my daughter started talking then stopped. I bet you defenders have children that can say mommy and I love you. I will never hear my daughter say mommy or be able to have a conversation with her. Something happened to her to make her stop talking. I truly believe it was the vaccines she received. I think that some children are more sensitive to the vaccines than others. What do you think would happen if it’s found that unsafe vaccines caused this to my daughter. I would sue for millions of dollars for what they did to my child and so would every other parent who had this happen to their child. It’s all a big cover up so they don’t have to pay out billions of dollars for ruining the lives of so many children. It left my daughter with the inability to communicate. So all you people who have children that can talk, your opinion means nothing.

  • pctech86

    Hey I was just curious if the author read any of the sources that they posted in this article or maybe just read the first sentence before adding it to their “arsenal”. For example – what you have linked as your source (5) to the oxford journals – the entire source goes over how there was no data linking autism, how there were coincidental occurrences, and that the Dr.s paper *was* published spurring parental fears which is why they started the studies in the first place. Yet, directly after quoting the source – the author goes on to say that the Dr. never published his paper – and that the studies conducted directly afterward supported his hypothesis. I’m confused as to why you link this source to support a statement which it actually it speaks against in the source? Hence why I asked if they actually *read* these sources. Wow.

  • chris968

    Wait I thought you said you were going to tell “both sides of the coin” yet all this article did was shove 22 articles of “research” bullshit in our faces about how vaccines cause autism. As a special education teacher with a master’s degree in autism studies I can guarantee you you’re wrong. This stuff is unreal and I can’t believe you are defending Andrew Wakefield. His “research” was PROVEN that he falsified everything. His data was FAKE. There is nothing to defend. He caused probably one of the most significant uproars in medical history and it turns out he himself was working on his own MMR vaccine. You don’t think he was trying to get people off of what was being sold so they’d take his vaccine??

    The aluminum and mercury in vaccines cause brain damage. This is common knowledge. Aluminum and mercury are heavy metals that cross the BBB. They destroy neurons in the brain. This neurological damage has another name. It is called AUTISM or tics or multiple sclerosis,or ALS or ADHD. Get It?

    Mercury is still used in 11 vaccines and the ones that eliminated it increased aluminum and that is why autism rates stayed the same.

          Vaccinations — Because the pathogenesis of MS is thought to involve the immune system, it has been hypothesized that a stimulus of the immune system (eg, a vaccine) may trigger the disease. However, substantial evidence exists that there is no association between vaccines and MS [141-146].

          ●Two well-designed studies seemingly refuted the possible link: one finding no association between hepatitis B vaccination and the development of MS [141], and the other finding no association between several different vaccines and disease relapse in patients with MS [142].
          ●A 2006 systematic review of nine case-control studies found a negative association between tetanus vaccination and the risk of MS (odds ratio 0.67; 95% CI 0.55-0.81) [143].

          The data behind gbs is that campylobacter infection followed by wild influenza infection are leading causes of gbs.

          See

          In a retrospective study that analyzed a northern California healthcare database over an ascertainment period from 1994 through 2006, there was no increased risk of incident GBS following any vaccination and all vaccinations combined, whether using a 6 week or 10 week risk interval [47].

          Plus

          Thus, the small risk of GBS associated with influenza vaccination, on the order of one to two excess cases of GBS per million people vaccinated, is substantially less than the overall health risk posed by naturally occurring influenza. One of the complications of influenza infection is an increased risk of GBS that is several times greater than the risk following influenza vaccination [33].

            No not wrong. They don’t know the etiology of autism. So vaccines stay in the mix.

          • AutismDad

            There is no science stating mitochondrial issues aren’t related to autism. Since autism can’t be thoroughly defined you can’t state they are different, unless you are just plain ignorant. And since vaccine science isn’t properly followed up or documented with honesty, we are left with disjointed information, by design.

          • Justthefacts

            All the science separates autism and mitochondrial issue, Dr. Jon Poling, Hannah’s father and neurologist, pulled Hannah’s case from the other autism cases because he knew THEY WHERE UNRELATED. Autism is defined as a Neurodevelopmental disorder, not a mitochondrial issue. You are not a doctor, or a scientist. You are a damaged father desperately trying to tie a boogie man to your issues by your personal set of definitions in which everything is autism.
            .
            In mitochondrial diseases, the mitochondria cannot efficiently turn sugar and oxygen into energy, so the cells do not work correctly. There are many types of mitochondrial disease, and they can affect different parts of the body: the brain, kidneys, muscles, heart, eyes, ears, and others. Mitochondrial diseases can affect one part of the body or can affect many parts. They can affect those part(s) mildly or very seriously.
            .
            Autism is a disorder of the neurological development of the brain. A child with a mitochondrial disease may or may not have Autism. And Autistic child may or mayy not have a mitochondrial disease. They are clearly different and are separately diagnosed.
            .
            You and I BOTH know that medical science can separate mitochondrial issues.from Neurodevelopmental disorders and have determined that vaccines do not cause autism. ALL science says you are wrong.

            You just posted opinion and said its science. Crediblity zero Mr Rogers.

          • Justthefacts

            Nope. Those are facts and Dr Poling knows them to be true also. You are Mr. 100% opinion (or should I say wish lists).

          • Ann

            Permanent neurological brain damage could be called autism, don’t you think? Vaccines do cause permanent neurological brain damage. Autism by any other name is brain damage and vice versa. GET IT?

          • Justthefacts

            This may be a surprise to you but the definition of Autism is NOT subject to your or my opinion. Experts, doctors, researchers and scientist have established the definition of Autism and there is no brain trauma associated with Autism:
            .
            The signs often develop gradually, though some children with autism reach their developmental milestones at a normal pace and then regress. The diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become apparent in early childhood, typically before age three.
            .
            “Autism Spectrum Disorder, 299.00 (F84.0). In: American Psychiatric Association. Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. American Psychiatric Publishing; 2013.”

            That is otherwise know as the DSM-5. They have spent half a century working their way through 5 revisions. It is not your “opinion”.
            .
            Permanent neurological brain damage is CALLED Permanent neurological brain damage. It does not need another name.
            .
            Sorry Ann, you don’t get to make up your own definition of Autism in a desperate attempt to show that vaccines cause autism.

          • Ann

            Sorry, autism damages the brain, so it is brain damage. I don’t need some one’s definition of autism to tell me any thing different. A rose by any other name is still a rose. When brain cells are damaged by aluminum and mercury, etc. in vaccines, and this damage causes autism and other neurological or brain damage then these effects can not be separated.
            Notice how many times the DMS-5 has revised itself on this issue. Well, you can count on more revisions as our “learned” scientists unwrap the “mysteries” of brain damage caused by vaccines. This may take a few more centuries and more of our children will be damaged for life.

          • Justthefacts

            No matter how narcissistic you are, you are still not entitled to you own personal definitions of medical conditions. You are not even a doctor.
            .
            Second, you know nothing about autism. There is zero brain damage with Autism. Its genetic. Usually, autism cannot even be detected in the brain.
            .
            Aluminum and mercury in vaccines injury nobody. There is more aluminum and mercury already in your bloodstream than what you get in vaccine.
            .
            You are a nutcase.

          • Ann

            One out of 48 boys has genetic autism? Are you crazy? Hmmm? Never heard that before. Must be a new genetic disease starting in the late 1980s. Of course non of the autistic kids have brain damage, they just act like they do.

          • Justthefacts

            I’m over 50 years old. In 2012, I did not have autism. Suddenly in 2013, I have autism. How do you think that happened?
            .
            What happened in 2013 that caused me, and millions of other people, to suddenly get autism?
            .
            If you can answer that, then you know the answer. If you can’t, then it is clear that you don’t know anything about autism.

          • Ann

            From whom did you inherit your autism? Maybe all of your vaccinations finally caught up with you and left you brain damaged. Maybe you are just a pathological liar. These are two answers to your question.

          • Justthefacts

            See Ann, you know nothing about the subject other than to repeat anti-vaxx claims as a dupe for anti-vaxx sites and blogs. A big thing happened to autism in 2013.
            .
            It was that the new version, DSM-5, was released.
            .
            With DSM -5, autism was replaced with “ASD” and now included many disorders that where not autism previously, including my disorder, PDD. On that day, people with PDD, Asperger’s Syndrome, and many other disorders suddenly became ASD victims. You see, the vast increase in autism in the U.S. came because of………
            ……..reclassification.
            .
            Your anti-vaxx sites didn’t tell you that, did they? How do you think I feel to find out that nothing had changed, but now, I am autistic. Funny, I thought I just had a cup of coffee.

          • Ann

            Yes, I wish they(Pro-Vacs)) would explain that. It is clearly eugenics and the vaccines are one of their means. With our government it is always, ” The ends justify the means.” Their end is depopulation.

          • AutismDadd

    I read a book by HEALTH MED LAB about natural cures and he recommends these two things as a natural cure for HEPATITIS disease,Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and Crocodile Protein Peptide. You can Google both of these to get more info. Also, need to do the cleanses,colon, liver, kidney, gallbladder. Eat organic foods to get the toxins out of your body so your body can overcome the disease itself.This is important. I am not promoting his book, but I feel it is a must read if you want information on how to beat this awful disease.

    Publishing: The peer-review scam

    When a handful of authors were caught reviewing their own papers, it exposed weaknesses in modern publishing systems. Editors are trying to plug the holes.

    26 November 2014

    In the past 2 years, journals have been forced to retract more than 110 papers in at least 6 instances of peer-review rigging. What all these cases had in common was that researchers exploited vulnerabilities in the publishers’ computerized systems to dupe editors into accepting manuscripts, often by doing their own reviews. The cases involved publishing behemoths Elsevier, Springer, Taylor & Francis, SAGE and Wiley, as well as Informa, and they exploited security flaws that — in at least one of the systems — could make researchers vulnerable to even more serious identity theft…source Nature

    How about some more news headlines…

    ‘Science Journal Pulls 60 Papers in Peer-Review Fraud’

    July10, 2014 source: The New York Times

    And a statement by Dr. Marcia Angell…

    “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” -Dr. Marcia Angell

    ‘Fraud in medical journals increasing’

    “The percentage of scientific articles retracted due to fraud has increased approximately 10-fold since 1975, with a smaller increase in retractions due to error.”

    “The journal that published the fraudulent research has failed to retract it, and editor-in-chief Andres S. Martin, a professor of psychiatry at Yale, told the Chronicle he had no comment on the options the journal might take.

    Although Glaxo pled guilty and paid $3 billion in fines, none of the academics have been disciplined by their universities for their roles in perpetrating research fraud. Moreover, according to the Chronicle, several continue to receive federal grants from the National Institute of Health”…source The Nation

    “Scientific Publisher BioMed Central has withdrawn 43 papers, and is investigating many more, over what it calls the “fabrication” of peer reviews. Representatives of Journal editors have admitted the papers are the tip of a dangerous iceberg, and the scandal may to lead to an overhaul of how peer review is conducted.

    Peer review is fundamental to science, a central part of the process of self-correction that sets it aside from faith-based systems. True peer review does not end with publication; plenty of scientific papers are published only to subsequently be shown to have major flaws.

    Anyone can take an excerpt from a paper and spin it the way they want. There is absolutely no link between autism and vaccines. Even if there was, what disease should we stop vaccinating against? What would parents like their kids to die from? Measles? Vaccines have saved millions of lives. The population being vaccinated saves those who have immune difficiency and can not be vaccinated themselves.

      Vaccinations — Because the pathogenesis of MS is thought to involve the immune system, it has been hypothesized that a stimulus of the immune system (eg, a vaccine) may trigger the disease. However, substantial evidence exists that there is no association between vaccines and MS [141-146].

      ●Two well-designed studies seemingly refuted the possible link: one finding no association between hepatitis B vaccination and the development of MS [141], and the other finding no association between several different vaccines and disease relapse in patients with MS [142].
      ●A 2006 systematic review of nine case-control studies found a negative association between tetanus vaccination and the risk of MS (odds ratio 0.67; 95% CI 0.55-0.81) [143].

          • Sonja Henie

            I assume you don’t eat, or feed your kids if you’re worried about these substances. Mercury has been removed from routine childhood immunizations.

            Snort! I take it you neither breast-fed nor formula-fed your kids. There is aluminum in both.

            The only childhood vaccine that has mercury in it is multi-dose flu vaccine, and single dose, mercury-free shots are available. There’s plenty of mercury in fish, especially tuna, which kids are fond of.

    I know exactly how you feel, having read the stool sample you posted.

  • Sonja Henie

    Anti-vaxers are afraid of needles.

    • Graceds

      Only when the needles are held by ice skaters.

  • KIZMET

    Please don’t assume I am an anti-vaxer” as I am not, but there seems to be some error in logic in some of the comments. The fact is, those who have been vaccinated can be “carriers” too of the diseases. At no point do I agree that these shots somehow lead to Autism, but to me it seems that even these vaccinations do not stop the spread of the diseases they are claiming to eradicate.

  • But no, Sonja, Ann here has forgotten more about vaccines than you know! lmfao

  • Ann

    Yes, and now we have 1 out of 48 boys diagnosed with autism, autism which was the immediate effect of vaccines. Even the vaccine manufacturers admit this. What is wrong with you?

  • Ann

    What should we call it, permanent brain damage?

    • Justthefacts

      No, call it the disease that was diagnosed by both her doctors and her father:
      Encephalopathy caused by a mitochondrial enzyme deficit and caused by a condition known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM).
      .
      Brain swelling is NOT associated with Autism, period. Not Now, Not ever. Read up on it.

      • Ann

        And your point? Her brain was damaged by vaccines. She got $1.5million and another $500.000 every year of her life ’til death from the VACCINE INJURY COURT. You can call her autism anything you want, but it doesn’t change a thing!

        • Justthefacts

          As long as you don’t try to call it autism, you are correct. She got acute disseminated encephalomyelitis from a vaccine. I’ll say even more. About 300 people every year get injured by vaccines. Now when you consider that about one million vaccines are given EVERY DAY in the US, that means the injury rates is less than one in one million making vaccinations one of the safest human activities ever invented.
          .
          It’s safer to get vaccinated than to use your own bathroom.

  • Hamilton Mackenzie

    Same old cherry picked studies that don’t provide conclusive proof of anything. The diseases we vaccinate for, KILL CHILDREN that’s a hard fact. It’s a fact that the anti vaccers repeatedly choose to ignore. Ok – cease vaccination and there “may be” a detectable fall in autism, there will be a huge increase in child mortality. And you wonder why the anti crew has a solid reputation for being low IQ fantasists?

  • AutismDadd

    Its a complete lie that there could be NO DIFFERENCE, difference is the very nature of human beings. You imply then all children should be autistic because there’s no difference. Age of Autism has sold out. Having become a registered charity, they need funds to pay salaries and other costs. Wonder what we’d find if we had access to the financial records?

    • BeStrong

        Good Lord….they are loaded. But where does it come from? Government, Pharma?

      You need to correct your post.

      • John Hancock

        Anti-Vaxxers are such stupid, ignorant luddites.

      • AutismDadd

        WOW. $4.00 on autistic support. What a scam.

      • AutismDadd

        Only 22? Well, really? that and payouts in the billions are evidence of harm and callous disregard…isn’t that a stretch??

  • AutismDadd

    Trash science. I wasted time reading and scanning only to find the same rubbish we have been fed for decades.

    • annie

      Thank you for proving my point.
      As I stated earlier “you will rant about how it is all corrupt, but you will be unable to prove it, or explain why.”

      • AutismDadd

        Its easy to explain why. The MMR alone may cause autism, but more likely its the over vaccinating at fault. Animals / pets are suffering the same phenomenon and is labelled VACCINOSIS. To think children are not being harmed is ludicrous.

        • annie

          “You will be unable to prove it, or explain why.”
          Again, you prove my point. You still provide no evidence.

          • AutismDadd

            Yea dum dum evidence that is not and will not be shared by vaccine pushers.

    • suz norkan

      Pond scum think she’s made some point! I doubt the little troll has ever heard of karen silkwood or she wouldn’t be asking vacuous questions or making such quixotic demands! Doh!

  • AutismDadd

    James Murdoch arranged for Brian Deer to create the fiction the GMC used to convict Professor John Walker-Smith. Of course later Judge Mitting, a REAL JUDGE in a REAL COURT exonnerated him and called the GMC conviction UNLAWFUL.

  • Bjorn Fowler

    It’s Dadd now. He forgot how to spell

    • You are doing AD a disservice! He is not forgetful, he just never knew how to spell in the first place.

      • Bjorn Fowler

        Oh of course, I forgot he’s flunking school.

  • Ann

    I have seen graphs that show the complete opposite. This is a fraud put out by non other than the Dept. of Health and Human Services, which promotes deadly vaccines. You need to look elsewhere for the unbiased truth.

    • Bjorn Fowler

      You get given the officially documented graph. You can’t dispute with fact, so you call on the conspiracy card.
      Seriously, some people are are dumb as they get.
      These “unbiased truths” you speak of are all produced either by someone whose profits are directly tied to convincing people vaccines are bad or by people with no qualifications to make such claim.

      • Ann

        Yes, I know that the Dept. of Health and Human Services are subsidized by pharmaceutical companies. The Dept. does their dirty work! This is the truth and has nothing to do with conspiracy, unless you want to consider the conspiring of the Dept. with Pharma. That’s the real conspiracy !

        • Bjorn Fowler

          Got any real, concrete evidence of this? If not, your statement goes in the loon basket.

          • Ann

            Your crack-pot statements are already in the loon basket along with you.

          • Bjorn Fowler

            No evidence, loon basket it goes. So as I’ve shown then, Measles dropped rapidly when the vaccine was intoduced.

          • Are you joking? I doubt that one can dress itself in the morning.

          • Bjorn Fowler

            It’s funny when they refuse to back up their wacko paranoia

        • Yeah, no. Nobody seems to have any control over HHS. And since you have no knowledge of anything even close to this topic, your unsupported opinions are irrelevant. Like you.

          • Ann

            Ok, remain stupid and ignorant.

          • John Hancock

            Ironic comment is ironic.

          • AutismDadd

            Thanks for the Duh Moment

          • AutismDadd

            He will. He wallows in it by the minute.

      • And either depend on Ann-level stupidity for their survival.

      • AutismDadd

        And I supposed Vaccine makers GIVE vaccines away. Sounds like the mind of a burger flipper at work.

        • Bjorn Fowler

          Oh look, Disqus cancer is back.
          Ever heard of independent studies?

          • AutismDadd

            They don’t exist, no entity is truly independent. A little background check usually shows who supplies funding.

            Go on then, who funded this?

          • AutismDadd

            Same Old

          • Bjorn Fowler

            Cool, you can’t give a source of interest conflicting funding, this article stands.

  • Magnus Tranum

    1) After the fact it was found that Wakefield was paid to discredit MMR both before and during the time where he performed his studies. The parents of his subjects have also later come out and confirmed that he lied about their stories and the facts surrounding their medical histories.

    2) In the loosest of terms, then any acceptance of some fact can be construed as a form of “brainwashing” if it is taught to everyone through regular education. However the usual connotation with brainwashing is that it is in regards to being convinced of a false position despite evidence to the contrary. In that case no. One side stands on the shoulders of over a century of science and data, the other is ignorant fear mongering.

    3) Data can be manipulated to get the desired result, as is apparent in the case of Wakefield. The thing about peer review and the open marketplace of ideas is that eventually false data will be discredited since it cannot be recreated. It is a self-correcting mechanism.

    4) Critical thinking is a good trait, and I have not claimed otherwise. Blindly believing sensationalist blog posts over the entire scientific community is not critical thinking, it is willful ignorance and gullibility. Gullibility because you fall into the trap of believing convincingly-sounding blogs with no data to back up their claims despite being shown evidence to the contrary, and once you start believing it is easy to become a victim of confirmation bias. Critical thinking goes both ways.

  • suz norkan

    1a.You all make the initial claim vax are safe! Bop is on the initial claimant!

    1b. I don’t need to ASK if you’re that stupid. I can SEE that you are!

    1c. Suz doesn’t waste her time with the insignificant fallacy games that you astroBRATS overuse but don’t understand and use in error!

    2a. Not funny at all; except for your obvious obliviousness! Suz doesn’t LIE!

    2b. See 2a. And I won’t admit to what I DON’T do, i.e. YOUR LIES!

    3a. You don’t know me or my usual speech pattern so you’re talking out of your ‘expletive,’ little ASStroBRAT!

    Your ‘sarcasm’ was understood and dismissed as a puerilely posted ad hom, so I simply expanded on the truth regarding some of my academic accolades.

    3b. I don’t see any anti vaxers posting here!

    3c. We didn’t have to use stars to spell FOUL words in MY english classes, FOULer!

    4. Look it up! It’s easily found online!

    5. Remember boys and girls, anyone who calls someone who isn’t a liar, a liar, is a LIAR!

    5b. Suz doesn’t lie. But B. FOULer does!

    6. I don’t know ‘NO’ anti vaxers!

    This was fun, but your recess is over, you little astroBRAT! Ms. Fifthgradeteacher is calling you back to class, FOULer! 😉

    • Bjorn Fowler

      1a. Yeah, and no evidence shows they aren’t safe. The burden of proof lies on the person saying they’ve caused death. So come on, back it up.

      1b. Says the person who doesn’t understand the burden of proof

      1c. Again, you’ve shown you don’t understand the burden of proof, you have no evidence for a single harmful cause YOU’VE stated.
      Therefore there is NO reason to believe any of your lies

      2a. Another lie, stop lying anti-vaxxer

      2b. See 2a. Stop f**king lying antivaxxer

      3a. No, but given you’ve shown to be of lesser intellect and a compulsive liar, it’s pretty clear it’s not your usual speech pattern

      3b. Well there’s you and Autisticdadd. That’s two right there

      3c. F**king good for you, I don’t give a s**t about you english grades, you clearly failed science

      4. I already knew the term, you think I’m being paid to argue with you. Which shows how f**king stupid you are. NO company would waste profits on retards like you

      5. Well it’s a good thing I only called you a liar then isn’t it?

      5b. Another lie, you really can’t help yourself can you?

      6. Stop lying you f**king anti-vaxxer.

        Additionally, I don’t open links from you astroBRATS!

        And regardless of your incessant and imprudent faux pas, the onus remains on the original claims from you and vax manufax in declaring ‘vax safe and effective!’

        However, they are NOT ‘safe and effective’ for everyone! So the bop remains on you, until vax is shown to be ‘safe and effective’ and without incident for all!

        But we know that you CAN’T prove that, since it’s untrue! And right now, you’re puking up a whopper if you expect anyone to believe that no one was ever seriously harmed or killed by vax!

        2a. See MY 2a., comment # 2576821727 above!

          “Wahhhhh! Aw! Quit crying already! Sheesh! What a whiny baby boy!
          All one has to do is go through my profile to see how many times I’ve used
          alliteration, onomatopoeia, correct grammar, unique verbiage, or utilized other poetic license in my replies!
          You really ARE illiterate if you think vax have never caused death or serious injury! Ask mommy to buy YOU a dictionary, FOULer! You apparently need one! I don’t! Stop playing your idiotic video games, and you’ll learn that suz doesn’t lie, darlin’! Vax DOES cause injuries and death and far more often than mainstream media reports, crybaby!”

          Doesn’t matter how much you stuff into a post, forced speech is forced speech, put the dictionary away, it makes you more unpleasant that you already are, which is not an easy thing to do.

          “You really ARE illiterate if you think vax have never caused death or serious injury!”
          Oh look, you seem to think literacy is linked to knowledge of facts. I guess you didn’t read the definition of that one very well huh?

          Lastly, provide your evidence that vaccines cause death. Sure, the rare person may have an allergy, but you specifically said death, so provide the official data linking deaths to vaccines. Get cracking you liar, prove this lie of yours is not a lie (Of course I know you won’t be able to).

          • suz norkan

            Aw! FOULer’s bent because my communication skills are much better than his. At least I haven’t noticed any expletives lately. That’s a start!

            Sweetie, I haven’t used a dictionary in decades! My speech is not forced, but rather, it simply shows I’m well educated.

            Yep! I said ‘death and injury!’ And if you’ve NOT yet read ANY news in all of these years to date, of a vax reax causing at least ONE DEATH, then darlin’, you MUST be illiterate!

            The crackerjackin’ is YOUR chore, and tell mommy you want a dictionary too, so you can participate in the grown up blogs after you learn the amount of death and injuries caused by vax!

          • Bjorn Fowler

            “Sweetie, I haven’t used a dictionary in decades! My speech is not forced, but rather, it simply shows I’m well educated.”
            No, it’s forced, no one, regardless of education, talks like that. Now put the dictionary away, anyone who thinks vaccines cause death are NOT well-educated.

            “Yep! I said ‘death and injury!’ And if you’ve NOT yet read ANY news
            in all of these years to date, of a vax reax causing at least ONE DEATH,
            then darlin’, you MUST be illiterate!”
            No I simply don’t read propaganda like you do. Furthermore if one death (You still have to provide the evidence btw) is your concern out of BILLIONS of vaccines administered, then boy will the deathtoll to measles horrify you.

            “The crackerjackin’ is YOUR chore, and tell mommy you want a
            dictionary too, so you can participate in the grown up blogs after you
            learn the amount of death and injuries caused by vax!”
            That’s not how this works Mc’Liar, your claim can effectively be thrown out the window if you don’t back it up. Why? Because if it doesn’t exist, then there’s no proof to find and all you do is waste peoples time. Now provide your evidence liar.

          Shut up suz, no one cares about the opinion of a liar

          • suz norkan

            That’s why no one pays any attention to you, you lying baby boy!

            Now shut up on the ‘shuttin’ up ‘ya rascally varmit!’ 😉

          • Bjorn Fowler

            What’s wrong Suz? You put away the dictionary? It’s spelt “Varmint”. I’m not even American and I know that one.

          • suz norkan

            It’s a southern thing! 😉

          • Mauricio Flores

            I live in texas and I have never heard ANYONE say varmit where in texas? Arlington

          • suz norkan

            Your other ‘south!’ I’m quite happy to say that I don’t live in texas!

          • Mauricio Flores

            Wow so there is another south now? I didn’t know that well back to the topic EVIDENCE

          • suz norkan

            Lot’s more ‘SOUTH’ than texas and lot’s of ‘evidence’ for your research perusal, astroBRAT!

          • Mauricio Flores

            I understand that but the south is just the south there are no “other” south It is just south

          • suz norkan

            There are LOTS of ‘souths!’ That’s all the playtime suz has for this 2 month old commentary!

          • Mauricio Flores

            And where is this “other south” you speak of?

          • suz norkan

            None of your business!

          • Mauricio Flores

            fine I respect it but you cant just go on insulting an entire state

          • suz norkan

            Nor would I!

          • Mauricio Flores

            You just expressed your gladness that you dont live in texas

          • suz norkan

            I did! Different people embrace different geology!

    I am not going to spout my opinion at this stage. I will only present the conclusions from the papers. Below is the 22 papers with excerpts from the concluding line of each abstract or paper. In summary, this is what
    they say:
    .
    1. One link is dead.
    2. Three papers do not address vaccines at all in any way.
    3. 18 papers state clearly in their conclusions that the results “suggest” or “may” or “warrants further research “. These papers are intended to be used to promote further research.
    .
    Not one of these papers “conclude” anything concerning vaccines and autism. That is just a fact.
    Read below for yourself. Some uninformed people try to take parts of published works out of context to meet their agenda. That is clearly the case here.
    .
    Sorry, there is nothing here that confirms that vaccines cause anything.
    .

    individualized approaches to clinical care and integrated studies of
    biomarker enrichment in ASD subgroups that may better address the
    complex etiology of ASD.” inconclusive, just a need for more research.

    14.
    Environmental mercury release, special education rates, and autism
    disorder: an ecological study of Texas. this paper on discusses

    Correlation does not imply causation, at least that’s what we are told when kids develop seizures and autism hours and days following vaccination. On the other hand, there is no scientific proof vaccines work. The ONLY evidence for vaccine efficacy we are given is correlation…….

    • DigMed

      On the other hand, there is no scientific proof vaccines work. The ONLY evidence for vaccine efficacy we are given is correlation…….

      So, thousands of studies showing how disease like polio, measles and pertussis dropped dramatically and immediately after the introduction of mass immunizations for those diseases AND thousands of studies that show that when vaccination rates drop below 70% these diseases immediately spike again are “correlation?” With that expansive definition nothing could be considered causal.

      • #7 is about fish – did you notice that?

        #13 is about an element that is not in vaccines – did you catch that one?

      • 655321

        You’re confusing studies with correlation. Nice try.

  • AutismDadd

    Nice rant. No substance just opinion. Not convincing.

  • AutismDadd

    Vaccine licensed, doesn’t mean used. They got you Fowler

  • zapp7

    All these papers have been debunked. They suffer from poor methodology and plain bad logic. This article also leaves out the larger more reliable studies that find no association between vaccines autism. Of course, those aren’t mentioned because they don’t fit the author’s narrative.

    • DigMed

      In the frazzled anti-vaxxer brain, these 22 articles count more than the thousands which have shown absolutely no connection between vaccination and autism. That’s the way the paranoid mind, conspiracist mind works. Facts and reason have no value.

  • AutismDadd

    But was it used…big difference.

  • DigMed

    To leave it to “natural immunity” to work its way, many people, mostly children, will either die or be left permanently disabled from these diseases. Is that the method you want to go back to? Sure, natural immunity “works better” (for the survivors) but the human cost is staggeringly higher.

    • Nick Jenkins

      Please provide specific time frame in history when this happened. Scientific evidence not some story about a plague and what not. I want graphs and numbers when a time existed when man kind was being wiped out by diseases. What costs more than our “healthcare” we see today.

  • AutismDadd

    How scientific. You know you are the definition of a useful idiot. You can ALWAYS be used as a BAD EXAMPLE.

  • Jen Lander

    irresponsible, false information. disgusting.

  • DigMed

    Exactly

  • Mauricio Flores

    Suzan you have give ZERO amount if evidence give some and MAYBE you wont look like a total idiot me and my friends have laughed so hard at you and your stupid uneducated comments what are you going to do call me an astrobrat? And scream that I am “unenlightened”?

    • suz norkan

      Aw! ‘Ya missed ‘last call,’ you silly little illiterate unenlightened, and unsophisticated [friends of b.f.] astroBRATS!

      • Mauricio Flores

        Give evidence that vaccines cause autism REAL evidence please

        • suz norkan

          Ya missed last call! Feel free to peruse my archives, astroBRAT! 😉

          • Mauricio Flores

            Peruse? And you call me illiterate and how is it so hard to just give a link to a credible website Im not going to look through all your archives for one thing that you can supposedly so easily pull up please just copy and paste a link to CREDIBLE EVIDENCE and dont cite andrew wakefield the researcher that got his medical license removed for falsifying evidence also I am an astroBRAT (you’re welcome, and also question why is capitalizing brat so important? Does it add to my supposed hurt feelings?)

          • suz norkan

            Yeah! Peruse! And yes! Illiterate! I don’t play in 2 month old commentaries, astroBRAT!

          • Mauricio Flores

            EVIDENCE I read your entire argument with bjorn there was never evidence also do you thnk looking up a thesaurus makes you look smart? Sure fine you confused me with peruse I admit I thought you meant pursue now GIVE ME EVIDENCE

          • suz norkan

            Of COURSE you perused wrong! Now go have fun pursuing evidence while perusing my archives, astroBRAT!

          • Mauricio Flores

            I told you how everyone finds this site now EVIDENCE

          • suz norkan

            See comment # 26731058164! 😉

          • Mauricio Flores

            Or you could give a link

          • suz norkan

            See comment # 2673102897! 😉

          • Mauricio Flores

            Also PEOPLE OF THE LAUGHING AUDIENCE watch as for my next trick I start to press suz for evidence and she suddenly out of nowhere she gets tired of arguing! She will try to argue that she is just tired but know the real reason! She has no idea what to say

          • suz norkan

            Your ‘trick’ would be to find someone [NOT of your astroBRAT associates] who’s still reading/lurking after 2 mos., neophyte!

          • Mauricio Flores

            Oh easy just look up “idiot vaccine cause autism articles” and it is the first one you find I came upon this today and EVIDENCE give EVIDENCE WHY DO YOU REFUSE? Oh wait thats right it is because you DONT HAVE ANY

          • suz norkan

            See comment # 2673105845! 😉

          • Mauricio Flores

            You are going to have to explain this see comment thing because I found this site yesterday and have no idea what you mean

          • suz norkan

            No!

  • Bill Pembry

    OPV-induced polio risk is 1:2.5 million per dose. Since vaccines wiped out endemic polio in Peru by 1992, yeah, you’re pretty much only going to see vaccine-induced cases.

  • Nick Jenkins

    Why are all of you brain washed sheep asking for scientific proof? The “science” has been bought which makes it so convenient for all of the Big Pharma/Govt backing retards to keep saying “show me the science” dur dur dur! When you realize that an environment has been created where now individuals in society are being used to police the usage of pills and vaccines it really is genius. I will use my eyes and perception to dictate what I believe and not depend on the “research” and “science” provided in most cases by the companies that are profiting from the sale of drug/vaccine. And for all of you that say the research comes from a university I will tell you to find out how much money was given to that university from said companies. Please if vaccines are so effective explain all outbreaks in history (the ones where it has been proven that the individuals were vaccinated) like the one happening at Harvard University right now with the Mumps. Suck It! all you pro Govt. pro Big Pharma brain dead losers who one day will be lead to the slaughter house because science said it was safe. And Im done. :)
