    I think we can safely assume 96.7% of Americans are up to date on their vaccines. I don't know what pro-vaxxers are so stressed out about if they believe in the 95% vaccination rate for herd immunity to take effect. Really, it should only take a 68% vaccination rate for herd immunity to take effect.

    In 2013, 3.3 percent of Americans or 10,440,012 Americans refused all vaccines.
    316,364,000 x 0.033 = 10,440,012
    What's the number now?

    Lmaooo even if vaccines did cause autism it wouldn't mean that you should treat autism like a disease.

      What's a more sinister plan than convincing autistic folks to throw away any rights to bodily integrity they had during a push for more and more vaccines?

    • Ima Skeptic
      Ima Skeptic 20 minutes ago

      _"Disabled people should be allowed to exist."_ I don't think anyone is murdering them yet. That might happen though right after you throw away your rights to bodily integrity. That's what parents of autistic children are concerned about. If you give up your rights to bodily integrity like this video is trying to convince you to do, they can murder you simply because they don't like the way you look.

      It's not child abuse to not be a literal eugenicist.
      Disabled people should be allowed to exist. You can't separate being autistic from an autistic person because it's literally how their brain works. If someone offered me a cure for being autistic I wouldn't take it, because then I wouldn't be me.

    • Ima Skeptic

      It's considered a "disability". If you want to disable your child for life, do it. It's really nothing short of child abuse.

    When you vaccinate your babies and children, please keep them away from the immune compromised in society. See this image from John Hopkins Hospital?
    _*Tell friends and family who are sick, or who have recently had a live vaccine (such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, intranasal influenza, polio, or smallpox) NOT to visit._
    _*Avoid contact with children who were recently vaccinated._

      So let's consider Ima's new obsession - "virus shedding".
      1 - most people when vaccinated will see their immune system react to destroy the pathogen.
      2 - in a small number of people however = this does not always happen as expected.
      3 - because of #2 = vaccines which use attenuated viruses - which mean alive but weakened - can then potentially replicate after a time to cause the individual to "shed viruses".
      So now comes the part that Ima and the anti-vaccine industry always omits = vaccine shedding does not happen with everyone. It "might" happen in select people as noted above. So we see people who latch onto "it's possible" in order to rationalize what they want to believe - instead of looking the big picture to determine if what is claimed is *LIKELY.*
      Moral of the story: lots of things can be viewed as "possible" depending how much one twists the evidence. Yet not everything claimed as possible is then likely..........and the way to discern between the two = evidence. So immuno-compromised people are *HIGHLY* susceptible to infectious diseases. As such they are told to avoid *ANY* potential source of those illnesses - no matter how remote.
      So yes - Ima's post is "factually correct". It is however also misleading for the reasons noted above because the possibility of you encountering someone shedding viruses is slim. The only people who would be at risk from these people are folks like immuno-compromised individuals + unvaccinated. A person who briefly sheds viruses after vaccination around others who have been vaccinated will not cause them to be sick. So anti-vaxxers as we see post "innuendo" to try to scare people because the anti-vaccine industry traffics in fear.

      +Bleep Blop - the only person in this comment section that has been providing studies in this comment section is me and a few other vaccine refusers. The pro-vaxxers haven't been providing any from what I can tell so at this point the discussion has been pretty one sided in regards to scientific sources, citations and references. The pro-vaxxers are standing on pretty thin ground.

Or 2 you will say something like "Uh your opinion is wrong you communist and I'm always right." Wanna try and prove me wrong? Just look at your past comments, that's all the proof I need! So how about instead if insulting people you instead peacefully argue with them, you know, like a normal person would do

      Ignorance begets ignorance ad infinitum. So as a rule it is best not to "feed the trolls". If however a person has the knowledge to counter the anti-vaxxer claims = it is important to correct the record for the benefit of all.
      Moral of the story: we must break the cycle of ignorance by exposing the fallacious logic the anti-vaccine industry employs to "vaccinate" (pun intended) others who frequent these videos in an attempt to understand = lest they get sucked down the anti-vaxxer rabbit hole.

    The CDC says in the USA in the 1950's before a vaccine, "it is estimated 3 to 4 million people in the United States were infected [with measles] each year. Also each year, among reported cases, an estimated 400 to 500 people died."
    4,000,000 ÷ 400 = 10000
    Only about one in 10,000 children died of the measles who got it. (estimate).
    But pro-vaxxers are 100% sure they'll die if they get it.
    In the 1950's, the USA had a population of 150,697,361 people.

      Mortality rates 101:
      1 - vaccination *PREVENTS OUTBREAKS FROM OCCURING* in the first place = ergo it by extension reduces mortality associated with those outbreaks.
      2 - if a person gets sick however = their living or dying is then largely due to their access to healthcare and the level of that healthcare.
      So as an example. During the Ebola outbreak in West Africa a few years ago healthcare workers who got infected and were evacuated to developed countries like the US or Europe stood a better chance of survival than those treated locally = because the healthcare systems are better in the West.
      So 3-4,000,000 infected with measles *EACH YEAR* = tens of millions in costs to treat them as parents take off work and take the children to the doctor etc. What Ima (naturally) omits is of those people about 48,000 ended up hospitalized while 3-4,000 developed encephalitis. Measles by the way is one of the leading causes of childhood blindness in the world.
      Also what Ima failed to tell you is that for the period of 2006-2014 - 8 years - in the US the Vaccine Court paid a whopping *101* claims for the MMR vaccine since Ima referenced measles. That is a mere 101 people who developed an adverse reaction to the MMR vaccine and filed a claim which was approved. Contrast that to about 80,000,000 doses of MMR administered in the US during the same period.
      Moral of the story: so we see above = millions who are fine contrasted to 101 who suffered some reaction which warranted a claim being filed. Meanwhile using the number Ima noted = about ~20,000,000 people spared having to have the measles which would cost huge amounts to treat and which would have resulted in 3,000-4,000 deaths over the same 8 year period. So which presents as the greater risk folks??? Something new to think about..........or not. {chuckle}

      There might have been an early measles vaccine available in our area when my brother and I had the measles but no one bothered to use it. It wasn't required or mandated. Most people just got the measles until mandates started in some public schools. When I went to first grade elementary school, the school didn't require any kind of vaccines whatsoever so I am totally shocked at what I am seeing going on today.

    Ima Skeptic is just a idiotic person who completely ignores research that proves all her claims are false. It is like she or he have not even watched this video and just commented. She/he is using unreliable sources that were obliviously made by anti-skeptics a while ago.

      +redlegagent - should we get all of our information from you?

    • redlegagent
      redlegagent 12 hours ago

      Note how Ima continues to point to PubMed despite having been told multiple times by myself that websites like PubMed which post studies are only a library. Just as libraries hold fiction and nonfiction books = so websites like PubMed contain anti-vaccine studies which do not reflect accepted science and typically originate from a group of anti-vaccine researchers who crank out these studies year after year. The only thing a study has to abide by to be posted on the website is to conform to it's rules for publishing. PubMed leaves it to it's viewers to discern any errors in the studies it posts = peer-review.
      Moral of the story: just because you find these studies on-line *DOES NOT* automatically make them valid or reflective of accepted consensus science. About a half million studies are produced each year worldwide. So anti-vaxxers like Ima either post "junk science" studies produced by people associated with the anti-vaccine industry - or else they post snippets from legitimate studies while omitting relevant context to misrepresent what is being discussed and what it means.

    Why can't I find a table on the internet containing the LD50 values for all the pathogens known in existence? In toxicology, the median lethal dose, LD50 (abbreviation for "lethal dose, 50%"), LC50 (lethal concentration, 50%) or LCt50 is a measure of the lethal dose of a toxin, radiation, or pathogen. The LD50 value for a substance is the dose required to kill half the members of a tested population after a specified test duration.

    Well, it is nice that some people don't immediately trust medication as soon as they hear what it can do. Anti-Vaxxers kind of question to prove if it is really safe and I appreciate the lengths they go to protect themselves or anyone they care about from harm. But we can just say that: Vaccines have proven to be safe and it has fewer side effects than medical procedures such as chemotherapy. All in all, don't be skeptical to ask for help! If you feel that your immune system is already too weak, (e.g. when you're too old or young), then you should talk to a doctor about alternate ways to prevent disease. One way I think is flawless is herd immunity. If people in your family are vaccinated, they can also help prevent nasty germs from going to you. It's like spreading small bits of immunity bubbles throughout a community every time an interaction takes place. I dunno, just a thought. I don't want to flip off random people who might be living on the other side of the world. We should just work as a community and find medication that we all can use and trust.
    Edit: Aaaand, I did a bit more snooping around in the comments and saw both sides of the arguments. (yes, I have no life, judge me all you want, lol) And yes, Ima Skeptic does have some valid points. Although I would try finding those papers to see for myself, since I don't consider PubMed to be very reputable/credible, they are an interesting concept to be looking around. But they specifically focused on finding vaccinations using Thimerosal which it was even stated in the paper that Ima Skeptic sent. And yes, this is serious so I would be cautious around which vaccinations I am receiving. Thimerosal is no longer used in the US except in some flu vaccinations so I would steer clear of certain flu shots but I would always consult my doctor about the usage of this preservative. If you don't live in the US, this may be a valid fear you should have. ALWAYS TALK TO A DOCTOR BEFORE TAKING VACCINATIONS. Because they spent years of educating themselves for a reason, don't leave them hanging lol.

      Well then thank you for clearing that up, I'm not one to study this kind of material but it seems you have dabbled in this area before. I guess it is quite clear that thimerosal is no longer used in vaccinations.

      _"+Jenna Zhanng - I've explained everything already and feel no need to repeat myself."_
      This Jenna is Ima's _modus operandi_ here. Ima *NEVER* explains what their posts are supposed to represent - rather we see the trite deflection away from the topic where Ima will simply move on to another thread and another opportunity to post the same arguments and cut & paste diatribes over and over again.
      Moral of the story: Ima never elaborates = because Ima has no idea of what their posts actually mean. Their purpose here = to flood the comments section with posts...............nothing more.

    • redlegagent
      redlegagent 7 hours ago

      Last point as Ima has already noted = Thimerosal is but one red herring argument in a long line of them.
      In the 1980's the anti-vaccine crowd first claimed that vaccination harmed the GI tract = leading to autism. As that claim lost credibility = we saw them in the 1990's pivot to attacking Thimerosal. After numerous studies done worldwide using tens of thousands of real children failed to demonstrate the claimed correlation of Thimerosal-Autism = they again pivoted to attacking the "number of vaccines" --------> "the ingredients used in vaccines" --------> "the timeframe they are administered in" ----------> "a supposed lack of clinical trials" ----------> "a supposed lack of long-term studies"..............blah, blah, blah.
      So as we see above - no matter what evidence provided or however many times anti-vaxxer claims are debunked = they will simply move the goalposts yet again to gin up some other rationalization to maintain the anti-vaccine industry.
      Moral of the story: the anti-vaccine movement = on-line industry. It also represents an ideology and thus like all ideologies = facts and evidence need not apply. All that matters to ideologues is to cling to their preferred narrative no matter the evidence accumulated with acts to debunk it.

    • redlegagent
      redlegagent 8 hours ago

      _"It is a set standard by health institutes that Thimerosal must be removed from all vaccinations due to public outbursts! So, I'm wondering the only problem you have against vaccinations is that they have Thimerosal inside of them?"_
      Jenna - understand a few things about your post. First is that Thimerosal was removed long ago from most vaccines. This was done - not because it was dangerous as it had been in use for decades - but because the level of "noise" on the internet among the anti-vaxxers was such that the medical system decided it was better to simply remove it so remove from the equation something which we see the anti-vaxxers still complain about more than 15 years later.
      Next understand that the pharmaceutical industry had been moving away from the need for things like Thimerosal anyways. Today in hospitals etc. in developed countries many medications come in "unit dose" packaging. That means you get a single pre-calculated dose of something. That eliminates any potential dosage errors + it prevents possible contamination issues as sometimes arose.
      This is what I mean. Thimerosal was a bacteriostatic compound. It was added to the old multi-dose vials which vaccines used to come in. If a person drawing up the dose of vaccine was not careful and did not ollow sterile procedures - as can happen in poor countries with marginally trained healthcare workers = they could contaminate the vial. Today however many vaccines come in pre-filled syringes which were already sterilized and do not require anything more than attaching a sterile needle and then dispose of everything after the shot = no Thimerosal required.
      Moral of the story: the industry had been moving to this mechanism anyways as a result of "defensive medicine" as has now become standard in many countries. By creating unit-dose packaging = you facilitate the elimination of possible errors at the user end.

      Ima - what you think is irrelevant. All that matters are the facts. Posts in response to other posts which clearly emanate from anti-vaxxer trolls periodically disappear. Those posts contain nothing disparaging or abusive = ergo "someone" is trying to hide them.
      That is not unique to this video by the way. One routinely sees trolls of all flavors on a plethora of videos doing the same thing. There are posters here as I have noted before who also frequent other vaccine videos and who post variations of the same things = ubiquitous anti-vaxxer trolls who cycle from video to video. On those videos we see the same "pattern" occurring.

      This is invalid. I, personally, am not likely to die of starvation. I, along with billions of people, am not likely to die of starvation. It's certain areas of the world that are likely to. Also, just because you're more likely to die of one thing than the other, DOES NOT MEAN we should stop focusing on the latter. That's like saying that since more men commit suicide than women, we should only focus on providing men with therapy and care. If we want to eradicate a disease, then vaccines are necessary. If a disease is eradicated, then we are able to focus more on issues like world hunger and put more effort and aid in helping them.

    Can breast milk just like, keep old people safer

    • redlegagent
      redlegagent Day ago

      Sorry - breast milk doesn't protect you. Yours is a common mistake however. Before a fetus is born = it's blood is filtered via the mother's own blood system. As such immunoglobulin's which are circulating in the mother also make their way to the fetus. Once the infant is born - the mother's breasts will produce colostrum for a few days. That colostrum has antibodies in it. After those few days however the breasts transition to regular breast milk which - while nutritious for the infant - it does not impart any immunity. Meanwhile those antibodies the child got previously are constantly dying off as immune cells depending upon type only live for a matter of days to weeks.
      Moral of the story: if breast milk protected children as you assume = we would not see them die.........which they do. It can impart temporary protection - nothing more. After that the infant is dependent upon it's own underdeveloped immune system.

      "SAN JOSE, Calif. - Breast milk isn’t just for babies at the Mothers’ Milk Bank, which quietly offers it to adults with cancer and other serious illnesses to ease their symptoms. The San Jose milk bank is one of six in the United States. It distributes donated breast milk primarily to premature and low-birth-weight babies. However, it also will provide breast milk to adults with a doctor’s prescription. Adult use of breast milk is rare, said Pauline Sakamoto of the San Jose milk bank, which has served 28 adult patients in the past four years. Adults with cancer, digestive disorders and immune disorders may drink several ounces of milk daily or weekly to ease the side effects of chemotherapy, bolster their immune systems or improve their digestion, she said."

      I am someone who understands how credible science is formed. I also understand how the internet is exploited at times to push what we colloquially call: "pseudo-science". That pseudo-science - of which the anti-vaxxer agenda represents - is pushed for differing reasons.
      All humans are endowed with the capacity for "pattern recognition" which is the basis of all human knowledge. It is a carryover of our primal survival instincts. The human brain however is susceptible to erroneous information via repetition so that even abject lies can be made to seem "real" given enough time. The longer the lie is believed and reinforced = the more "real" it becomes in the person's mind.
      Moral of the story: I help others to understand "why" anti-vaxxers believe as they do and to point out their deductive fallacies. I also expose the trolls which seem to migrate to these videos and who perpetuate those incorrect claims which they often got from anti-vaccine websites who take things and then repeat them throughout the internet to create that "repetition".
      So the main takeaway to understand about vaccines is the herd immunity I referenced. Anti-vaxxers go to great lengths to try to deny it because it shows more than anything else how vaccination programs really work. Herd immunity is the Achilles heel of the anti-vaccine movement.

      redlegagent you are anti-vaxxer or not and all what you said it's true

    • redlegagent
      redlegagent Day ago

      +game - the rise in the anti-vaccine agenda is concurrent with the level of access people have to the internet. It is also largely due to the state of healthcare in a given nation. This is what I mean.
      1 - we see in developed nations such as the US = lots of people jacked into the internet. We also happen to see the anti-vaccine industry = primarily found on that same internet.
      2 - "herd immunity". (this will no doubt draw a post from Ima claiming it doesn't exist) Look back say 30 years and see the number of people documented with a given infectious disease - epidemiological statistics are easily available on-line as it is public information. See the decline in the number of cases + see the advent of vaccination programs = that decline reflects herd immunity which means as the level of vaccinated increase we see a corresponding decline in cases.
      3 - now factor in the advent of the "natural" industry and where it is found. In the US as an easy example we see oodles of people and websites which espouse the supposed virtues of eating organic and taking supplements blah, blah, blah = natural industry which then caters to this "niche market."
      So A+B=C. We see in places were people have benefitted from years of vaccination grow up in countries where these diseases are today rare + we see places where large numbers of people are jacked into the internet where the anti-vaccine message is widely pushed + we see people who exist on the "organics are best" train if you will = and we see a rise in those amenable to the anti-vaccine message which has been specifically tailored to appeal to these people who represent that niche market for the industry.
      Moral of the story: this is not to disparage Brazil by the way. It merely shows how in nations where poverty is still an issue and access to healthcare is limited so that people may not have access to the anti-vaccine message on-line while these diseases are still endemic = people see with their own eyes what these infectious diseases can do and the anti-vaxxer message does not resonate.

      "Until 1996, female sterilization was illegal [in Brazil], outlawed by article 16 of decree 20931 of 1931 and by article 129, paragraph 2.III of the Brazilian Penal Code of 1940. Punishment ranged from two to eight years in prison for doctors who carried out the surgery. Despite being banned, the practice was widespread throughout the country, even in public hospitals. By the early 1990s, female sterilization was the most common form of birth control in Brazil, due in part to limited access to other types of contraceptives. Less affluent women also often lacked family planning knowledge and access to such information. In 1996, 40 percent of Brazilian women (married or in unions) aged 15 to 49 had sterilization surgery; of those women, 57 percent had the procedure before the age of 30 and 34 percent had only one or two children. In poorer parts of the country, sterilization rates were higher. In 1994, an estimated 76 percent of women of reproductive age in Maranhão had undergone the surgery, along with 72 percent in Goiás and 60 percent in Pernambuco."

    I was expecting to see a little more discussion on this video's comment section rather than a wall of miserable jokes in the top comments on how you'll die if you don't get vaccinated, but well, thought I'd leave my story out there (my not experienced anti-vaxxer story):
    I speak solely on experience not on any study or research
    When I was little I was vaccinated like any other baby, but I developed respiratory disorders and eczemas started appearing all over my body, my parents, worried sick, took me to multiple "traditional doctors" whose advice was more medicine! Sometimes agressive and with secundary effects... so they tried homeopathy, after a couple tries they found one whose advice was "don't vaccinate you're child", they never thought it could be the vaccines causing this on me, but started digging, found that vaccines could sometimes have secondary effects, and as after getting one I got sick and with fevers they decided to cut the vaccines on me, little did they know, my eczemas started dissipating and dissapered not long after, my respiratory disorders also started dsissipating and fully disapered by 8 years old. I had a brother after me who never got a vaccine in his life and he's even healthier than me!
    We now belive that vaccines can be harmful and shouldn't be given in sech large quantities on babys cause their imune system is still beeing developed, we think vaccines are important to prevent highly contagious desieses and should be given but not at such a young age cause there are so many different desieses that it's better to trust theire imune system than to fill them with chemicals! Am I that one in a 1000000000 case poor dude? Maybe (tho I belive that number would have to be smaller) Are we benefiting from evreybody elses imunity? Perhaps, but what we support is a cummunity where vaccines are not given at such a young age, and in a way that doesn't transfere any chemicals into our body (cause mercury even tho it's little, is cancerous and after a lot of vaccines getting more and more of that into your body might just increase the probabilaty of you getting cancer even tho they say it doesn't in the video :/, good thing it was removed tho, for the most part...) besides if vaccines were mandatory in my country my situation could have goten a lot worse and I would probabily not be here to tell you this story.

      The National Institutes of Health says, *"In healthy individuals pathogens cause no disease."*
      HERE'S THE FULL QUOTE: _"Researchers found, for example, that nearly everyone routinely carries pathogens, microorganisms known to cause illnesses. _*_In healthy individuals, however, pathogens cause no disease;_*_ they simply coexist with their host and the rest of the human microbiome, the collection of all microorganisms living in the human body. Researchers must now figure out why some pathogens turn deadly and under what conditions, likely revising current concepts of how microorganisms cause disease."_

      +Sky - if you refer to the Philippines incident with the dengue vaccine = the government screwed up. The vaccine was developed based upon studies which showed that in areas where dengue fever is endemic = most kids by the time they are 10-12 have contracted the illness at least once. Accordingly the vaccine was developed with the intent it would be administered to that target population = older kids who had pervious exposure. The clinical trials showed the vaccine was effective with this group and when the WHO reviewed the vaccine a few years ago = they concurred with the recommendation.
      Moral of the story: a vaccine is "medicine". As such like all other medications it must be administered according to it's intended usage. The Philippine government however gave the vaccine to young children who had never been exposed to the virus before = in other words they did not follow the recommended protocol and adverse results occurred in some of these children. So the vaccine worked - *WHEN* - it is administered to those it was developed for.

    A word about Typhoid Mary folks since Ima referenced her. Poor Mary spent her life in a facility because she was too dangerous and apathetic to deal with her condition. She was colonized with the Typhoid bacilli - which her autopsy showed lived in her gallbladder. The doctors as it happened had offered to remove it when she was alive - but she refused. Had she done so she might have been able to live a normal life.
    Most folks are probably aware of the saying to carefully wash chickens and eggs lest you get Salmonella. As it happens = the bacteria which causes Typhoid is a subspecies of the one which causes Salmonella!! Now your gallbladder serves as a conduit from your liver where digestive enzymes are produced = mostly cholesterol and bilirubin. Wanna guess what chicken eggs are high in - and thus why chickens spread Salmonella??? Answer: *CHOLESTEROL!!*
    Moral of the story: poor Mary's gallbladder was a buffet for the Typhoid bacilli as cholesterol is a component of cellular membranes such as are what hold a bacteria together When she would use the bathroom - and not wash her hands adequately = she would spread the bacteria to others when she then prepared their food as poor Mary was a cook by trade. So wash your hands people............and listen to your doctors like poor Mary refused to do.

Instead, people like you, as well as most physicians, are running from nutrients like Vitamin C and Vitamin D. You don't want to know anything about the essential nutrients required for the survival of human beings because you don't want people to be healthy. You want Americans trying to survive on dangerous drugs like Vioxx and statin drugs. In healthy individuals pathogens (viruses and bacteria) cause no disease.

      Allergies can be unfortunate as you noted. As to Ima's claim about Vit. C = Pffft! Understand this 86. Studies have been done - as they always are - about these claims that the anti-vaxxer kooks blather about. Vit. C = water-soluble vitamin. In other words your body will only soak up as much of it as it wants = then it flushes the rest out when you use the toilet. People who take "mega doses" of Vit. C = wasting their money because high doses of Vit. C did not raise blood levels much more than those of people who simply ate foods which are known to be good sources of the vitamin = and they as noted peed the rest out.
      Moral of the story: mankind and animals have eaten 100% organic foods for tens of thousands of years. In all that time = they died like flies in the face of infectious diseases as well as developed things like cancers etc.. If dietary intake and things like vitamins prevented diseases = we should not be seeing these people die.................yet they do. Vit. C will not protect you I'm afraid..............but it will put money in the pockets of those who claim it will if you buy it for any other reason than normal dietary supplementation.

      Literally billions of people have been vaccinated worldwide 7. Over the past 10 years alone billions of doses of vaccines have been administered. Meanwhile there are people walking the planet who were vaccinated decades ago = and remain fine.
      So the anti-vaxxer trolls love to decry a need for "long-term studies" which they claim we are lacking. So children vaccinated 10 years ago who received vaccines which employed adjuvants and which may have also included some Thimerosal (which is rare) and are fine today = 10 year clinical trial if you will. If they were vaccinated 20 years ago = 20 year trial...........and so on and so on. In other words these billions of vaccinated people are walking, talking clinical trials as they go through their lives.
      Moral of the story: if these claims that the anti-vaccine industry assert were true = we should be awash in autistic and neurologically impaired people given the ubiquity of vaccinations............yet we are not. Something new to think about...........or not. {chuckle}

    Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is caused by a *defective measles virus* you get from a vaccine. Not a normal measles virus. It can kill you. On PubMed. *_"Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis in immunized Thai children."_* - (Dec 2011), Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand, Khusiwilai K1, Viravan S.
    Abstract
    _"Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease with high mortality and poor prognosis. This is caused by persistent defective measles virus infection. Clinical presentations are variable including behavioral-cognitive change, myoclonic seizure, visual problem, spasticity or abnormal movement. The authors report a case of 10 year-old boy, previously healthy with complete immunization, presenting with frequent myoclonic jerks, abnormal movements, spasticity and altered mental status. Electroencephalographic (EEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and laboratory findings are typical for SSPE."_

    If you get it and aren't warned about it, it's murder. It is listed in the FDA approved label manufacturer's vaccine package insert that you are never allowed to read. Unless you've read it, you can't even give your informed consent for the vaccine.

      As I see you still haven't found my point, here it is--> "choosing something degrading/perjudicial without question only because you fear death/other consequences it's stupid".

      Nice try. So follow the white rabbit Neo:
      1 - you criticize people who make note of the fact that infectious disease pathogens can result in death = ergo even if vaccination caused these things the anti-vaxxers claim - which they don't - life is preferable to death.
      2 - you further make some vague allusion to posit said comparison as "sheep-tier philosophy."
      Now for the facts. Vaccination as noted does not cause autism. While vaccination can in susceptible people trigger adverse reactions for various reasons = those events also as noted are rare. Meanwhile infectious diseases can and do kill people in addition to causing lifelong disabilities in those who get sick and who then survive. So once again = either/or paradigm here.
      Moral of the story: when people refuse to vaccinate because they fear some "possible" side effects = they are rolling the dice - literally. So-called "healthy" people die from things we vaccinate. Just last fall during the previous Influenza season I read news reports as an example of healthy young people who caught the Flu and died from it.
      So returning to the basic tenet here = it is not "sheepish" to accept the conclusions of the medical community which states as I noted that a person could potentially end up debilitated or dead if they catch one of these diseases..............while getting vaccinated greatly reduces that possible outcome. The real logical fallacy here is your false equivalency I'm afraid. It is one thing to have "healthy" skepticism................and another to as Ima shows to cling to skepticism leading to paranoia. At some point the facts must be accepted.

      Alright, Pubmed article: "The same method is used for the production of monoclonal antibodies and other proteins, gene therapy and genomics." The reason vaccines include those is because that's how they cure those very viruses; by injecting a underdeveloped and weakened state of the virus/disease into the body to make the immune system know how to fight the real thing when the time arises.

      1st LearnTheRisk.org article: The article was studying how thimerosal-containing vaccines has a link with ASD. But, the results say its very negligible. The autism/child rate was about 1/150 the date this was published, according to CDC, while the autism rates was about a 0.0002% increase, or a 1/500000 increase. Does that really outweigh the benefits? It also says in there:"Routine childhood vaccination is an important public health tool to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with infectious diseases."
      2nd one: The graph shows from 1.5k mg of aluminum to 6k mg of aluminum. problem is, we eat, on average, 250mg of aluminum, give or take some, daily. the graph also says that with 6k mg of aluminium, there were 300k cases of autism. Given there are 328m people in america, bases on our daily diets, the entirety of america would be autistic within about 40 years. But, we don't see that happening, do we?
      The 3rd doesn't even relate to vaccines.

    Disagreeing with giving the MMR vaccine to >3 y/o children does not mean your #AntiVaccine, it means you’ve seen too much tragedy in your own families life or lives of those you know to understand it’s more than coincidence that perfectly normal healthy children get the MMR vaccine and turn autistic overnight.
    So do all children turn autistic after MMR - nope. Do more than a few - YEP! Is there correlation between autism rates and the MMR vaccine - YEP!
    So why be afraid of the debate? Why label people who use common sense as “nut jobs”?
    Eventually you’ll know a child who got MMR and then because autistic overnight. It WILL happen to you. So rather than dismiss the concerns, why not fully study the issue?
    Why are the pro-MMR >3 y/o crowd so adamant that all children MUST get this powerful and highly suspect vaccine at such a young age?

      _Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health_ (peer-reviewed).
      Abstract
      _"The reason for the rapid rise of autism in the United States that began in the 1990s is a mystery. Although individuals probably have a genetic predisposition to develop autism, researchers suspect that one or more environmental triggers are also needed. One of those triggers might be the battery of vaccinations that young children receive. Using regression analysis and controlling for family income and ethnicity, the relationship between the proportion of children who received the recommended vaccines by age 2 years and the prevalence of _*_autism_*_ (AUT) or speech or language impairment (SLI) in each U.S. state from 2001 and 2007 was determined. A positive and statistically significant relationship was found: The higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher was the prevalence of AUT or SLI. _*_A 1% increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having AUT or SLI._*_ Neither parental behavior nor access to care affected the results, since vaccination proportions were not significantly related (statistically) to any other disability or to the number of pediatricians in a U.S. state. The results suggest that although mercury has been removed from many vaccines, other culprits may link vaccines to autism. Further study into the relationship between vaccines and autism is warranted."_

    Taked like 3-4 or all vaccines in the same day-week-or month...
    So normally you are supposed to take vaccines 1 every 2-3 moth.
    And fore some reason peaple prefer taking as many vaccines at the same or week.
    So can enyone confirm that this is true?

    Tip of the Day: understanding anti-vaxxers.
    We first consider history. If you go back say 50 years ago you would note that infectious diseases were once more commonplace. As an example: prior to the development of a measles vaccine = in the US about 2 million people caught the measles each year as recent as the 1960s. Now over the intervening years with the implementation of mass vaccination programs = we see the rise of "herd immunity". That means that enough people who are vaccinated act to prevent new outbreaks from happening because there are not enough unvaccinated to sustain the chain of infection. Net result: in 2014 in the US about ~360 people had the measles = out of the entire country of 330 million!! Naturally those people were mostly unvaccinated who refused to vaccinate because they listened to internet hysteria or else has some religious exemption - such as Amish.
    So as we see above = today these infectious diseases have become rare if not nonexistent in many places as a result of vaccination. So what does this mean??: It means there are literally millions of people out there who have never seen a person with measles etc.. This results in these things becoming "abstract" for them as they have no personal connection to what these diseases can do to base their conclusions on.
    Moral of the story: as the rise in herd immunity progressed and less and less people came to witness first hand the damage these diseases can cause = we expect to see a rise in people who then erroneously believe vaccines are not needed. They base that conclusion on their failure to see these diseases around them - *BUT* - they also fail to take into account that they only reason these things are rare = *VACCINES.* Today with so many plugged into the internet = they have created an "echo chamber" if you will which is constantly reinforcing that false conclusion. You have to look at the big picture folks and not only what you "want to see". Something new to think about...........or not.

    • redlegagent
      redlegagent 3 days ago

      See above people = note how Ima is once again trying to change the subject. In this case they trot out a dead researcher who was involved in dietary research decades ago in the 1930s-1975 when Keys retired. Also note the misrepresentative nature of the posts.
      1 - vaccination prevents outbreaks from occurring via herd immunity. As such it by extension reduces mortality from infectious diseases as epidemics do not occur.
      2 - if a person however gets sick from an infectious disease = their living or dying is then largely due to their access to healthcare and the level of that healthcare. This means that children who contract measles stand a better chance of survival if they live in the US which has a modern healthcare system than those in say Sierra Leone. So the common refrain of "few people die from........" from anti-vaxxers = deflection.
      3 - not sure what the argument over cardiovascular disease has to do with vaccination. {chuckle} Dietary intake is but one piece of the puzzle as relates to CVD. Back in the 40s and 50s when Keys did a lot of his research about CVD = many people routinely drank and smoked cigarettes which were quite popular back then. Smoking is a large variable as relates to people who develop CVD. Trans-fats were in part developed because of the large amount of saturated fats in the American diet back then before people were more aware of their intake. Keys played a role is raising that awareness.
      Moral of the story: smoking, drinking, and eating lots of fatty foods is never a good thing - no matter what "form" that fat takes.....................but that has nothing to do with vaccination science. So we must conclude that Ima is trotting out diatribes against former researchers and unrelated topics to rationalize their conspiracy theory-induced hatred of the CDC.
      That of course is to be expected. The CDC oversees infectious disease research and promotes vaccination = thus proponents of pseudo-science - which is what the anti-vaccinate agenda represents - invariably will default to attacking a person or entity which acts to undermine their narrative when they can't credibly refute the evidence those sources present. _C'est La Vie_
