About :

Fewer children in the United States are getting vaccinated. That’s bad news for those kids, and also for public health in general. Often, the response is to argue and debate and get angry at people who are we see as making terrible, irrational decisions. Instead of doing that, let’s use science to understand why this is happening in the first place.

I am glad that this is subject is being talked about more openly and addressed in the public sphere. For those that are not aware of the background of this movement, it was originally began with Dr Wakefield in the UK who put together a study composed of 12 people that were hand selected to be in the study. At the time, he was receiving funding from an attorney that was working on a case against vaccine companies. This conflict of interest, along with the ethical violations that he committed, caused the stripping of his license and the Lancet paper to be retracted. However, once the paper was out, the damage had been done as, in some regions of the UK, measles outbreaks, and subsequently measles related deaths, have risen significantly due to the lack of herd immunity. Since then, there have been multiple independent studies done that have included over 1 million children that have found no link between vaccines and autism. Not coincidentally, thimerosal, the compound that many believe to be the link between vaccines and autism, was removed from all childhood vaccines in the United States 2001 with no reduction in autism rates. This is a classic case of correlation not equaling causation, that is that just because two things are happening at the same time, does not mean that one is causing the other. I believe that parents have a responsibility to not only vaccinate their children for their children’s safety, but for the safety of all children.

Some people aren't anti-vax but want to utilize a different vaccination schedule. You shouldn't be persecuted and lumped into the same category as antivaxers. Also more education about the different types of vaccines should be more widely available. As someone who is allergic to all antibiotics I've had so far my kid will be getting vaccinated but with just one shot at a time and only for dangerous diseases. For example; Rotovirus is rarely lethal and if you use common sense.. diarrhea doesn't have to be life threatening. Won't be getting that one. But polio, pertussis and Hib are ones we will get because they kill and there are still wild strains of polio out there. The disease isn't eradicated!! But also we need to update our vaccines that we have in production. Virus are changing and we need to keep up.

This video is very biased and mocking the other side is never cool to do and only makes the person look biased and cruel.

Giving babies so many vacines at once could very well do a lot of damage. The fact is there has never been a study of vaccinated vs non vaccinated babies. There are way more vaccines now vs when I was a baby such as chicken pox which I had and it wasn't that big of a deal and now I'm immune for life. Some vacines are not needed and thus putting known toxins into your baby.
By saying their is no argument is either ignorant or narcissistic at best and egotistically miniacle at best.
It's also not just about autism and vacines. There could be other problems that they could create in your baby's tiny body. You can also look at the trend of polio, measles, etc and see they were declining before the vacines were introduced as we were developing natural immunities to it and clean water, safer environments we're being created. Therefore one can not say that vaccines do or don't cause autism as there are no peer reviewed studies on this. Saying there is no argument to something that isn't scientifically proven is not very scientific of you at all.

I truly believe we are more likely to have people get diagnosed now more than ever before mainly because of the fact that back in the day I guess doctors were less likely to see it in the parents didn't notice it because they didn't know the signs like the parents do now. I know so so many people who have a form of autism that were just never diagnosed because it wasn't severe and it still isn't severe and they live perfectly fine but they do struggle little things here and there. So I think the reason autism seems to have "exploded" is because more parents are looking for the signs because they're more worried about it now than ever now that it's been brought to their attention and also because perhaps doctors are better equipped to know what they're looking at not to mention there are some form of autism that people didn't even realize was a form of autism. So there's so many different possibilities but I really do think that this one particular one is a big one and a big reason why. Please do not forget that there are plenty of adults out there who have a form of autism but feel that it's not important enough to get diagnosed just because it doesn't interfere with their lives because they've learned to live with it. So yes there are a lot of children who have autism but please do not forget the adults who also have autism who were never diagnosed and don't feel like getting diagnosed now that they've lived their whole life with it and feel perfectly fine with the life that they have.

Oh so vaccines are safe hey ? Just like sugar was good for you and fats bad or agent orange and ddt weren't harmful to humans . Just like GMOs are not harmful to humans despite them causing infertility and cancer in lab rats and farm animals that eat them .

Wake up sheeple, there is plenty scientific evidence they harm people.

This is a paid big pharma reach around boy. He is a sell out of the human race to which he is a member. Accepting large sums of money to fool you into poisoning your babies. Agenda 21 depopulation. The first new world order commandment on the georgia guidestones is to get the worlds population down to a controllable number of slaves...500 million. Geez we have about 8 billion now..they would have to have a mass eugenics kill off plan to accomplish that in the next 12 years! They do! Bill Gates told everyone hes doing his part in killing off the population with vaccines. He said if they do a really good job poisoning the babies with them it would knock off about 15%..meaning 15 percent...babies. Bill Gates is a Nephelim demon as spoke of in Genesis 6. Yeshua said as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man...meaning we would have evil abominations in positions of great power and wealth and influence again, doing everything they could to kill off Yahwehs creation. This man doing this video, is paid by demons to try and decieve you into poisoning and killing your children. He serves his master satan, and for his crimes against Yahweh and his creation, he will be cast into the pit of eternal torment along with his master, where there will be eternal weeping and nashing of teeth. The money he was paid to do this video will not save him from his punishment, for he is a murderer as well, and the blood of millions of innocent babies is on his hands, and he will be in anguish that he sealed his own fate with his greed. Do not poison your children. They are assaulting, poisoning, raping, trafficking, ritualistically murdering, and drinking the blood of children and this man worships them.

New rule, anyone who seeks to force vaccines on anyone by law or social pressures, must have literally every vaccine on the market including the rabies vaccine. Do you want to claim there's no room for debate on individual vaccines then you better trust them with as much indiscriminate Faith as you expect the anti-vaxxers to put into the FDA vaccine program.

I'm tired of upbeat chuckleheads who pose as scientists then turn around and spew propaganda .. Science is never absolute and relies on repeated tests .. The pharma industry, which has a history of fraud proven by billion dollar settlements, is not about curing people, otherwise people would be getting healthier instead of sicker. Pharma makes its billions off illnesses by over-marketing through media, as they've done with deadly opioids. The FDA doesn't test anything, they trust pharma companies to do their own biased studies. Not enough time has elapsed to do repeated studies on the vaccine marketing craze that began in 2002.

I honestly dont understand how people can associate vaccines with autism. Autism Spectrum Disorder, or just Autism, is a neurological disorder in the brain, caused by genetic and environmental factors. There is absolutely no solid evidence, and believe me, they studied this, that autism could be caused by a weakened or dead virus. We're talking about your immune system, not your brain.

Opposing vaccination is the antithesis of science. The underlying principles are so sound and so profoundly logical it amazes me that anyone can believe vaccines are bad. The alleged autism link has been comprehensively disproved, and the guy who published it was found to have manipulated evidence and was later struck of the medical register i.e. no longer permitted to practise as a doctor. All the anti-vaxxer stuff is laughable - from the claims about mercury (hint - you actually ingest more mercury every time you eat a sandwich than you get from the few vaccines that contain it), garbage about the immune system "overloading" (hint - your immune system copes with dozens of different pathogens every minute of every day, right from th emoment you're born, since they are everywhere) and apocryphal stories about people getting sick (which might actually be true, but overlooks the fact that you're MUCH more likely to get a permanent disability or die from catching the disease you're not immunised against than you ever are from a bad reaction the the vaccine). A lot of this comes from complacency, terrible diseases like smallpox and polio have been virtually wiped out, diptheria, tuberculosis, typhoid have been driven back and many others like whooping cough and measles just don;t cause the massive epidemics that were once common and which caused thousands of deaths and disabilities, and meant millions of people went through a miserable illness. People used to deliberately give their kids measles and stuff not because it was safe, but because it's safer to have them as a child. It's sure not risk free. I had whooping cough as a kid - I got it before I could be vaccinated because some idiot on the block didn't have their kids vaccinated, so they spread it around to people who were too young to have the vaccine. I don;t remembe rit by my parents do, I was really, really sick for abut six weeks, oxygen and it left permanent damage on my lungs.

I don't have any opinion on the vaccination-autism argument, but I know vaccines can be harmful. My mother knew someone who's daughter died by a vaccine. There is proof. Over the three sections of the vaccine, she got sicker immediately after each round. After the third, the girl died.

The psychological science covered in this video is not relevant to pharmaceuticals. What I would like to see is the science of every ingredient that is injected into the human body for each vaccine to be weighed up against a study of the physical responses of a control and placebo group of humans over a period of time. Is this not the fair way to answer any questions relating to a potential side-effect in a pharmaceutical drug? It is carried out on all other drugs. Why isn't is carried out on vaccines? There are underhanded reasons as outlined in the following ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States which allow pharmaceutical companies to freely manufacture pharmaceuticals as they wish, with any range of ingredients, whose design defects are free of FDA scrutiny.

FDA’s regulations which there are more than 90 . They pervasively regulate the manufacturing process, down to the requirements for plumbing and ventilation systems at each manufacturing facility. Material noncompliance with any one of them, or with any other FDA regulation, could cost the manufacturer its regulatory-compliance defense. Design defects, in contrast, do not merit a single men-tion in the NCVIA or the FDA’s regulations.

Let this be your starting point in learning about vaccines.

This is why our education system needs a revamp. Doctors know when a child will be born with a mental handicap, so how is it the vaccines fault, its congenital. While we do not know what causes autism, for a fact its not vaccines. And for people who say, "im not vaccinated and I'm healthy" no your just a part of herd immunity, so thank everyone else for that.
