It's too late for my son as well, but I'm not buying into any paranoid global conspiracy theories.
You would be 100% wrong. And who is talking conspiracies? Well besides you?
Hey if you want to trust professional liars like politicians. Go for it.
The AMA has about the same integrity as the the AKA.
My beef is with the fact that very little effort has been put into finding the true cause of autism. If 1 in every 150 people started coming down with Syphilis there would be some serious effort put in to it.
People who defend the system are exactly why Autism is an epidemic.
By the way good reading for autism. Autism a Father's Story by Bill Davis. It is not a poor me book. It is a book that really nails what someone needs to do to be a good parent of an Autistic child.

I think you are thinking of German Measles or Chicken pox.

Let 'em be.

They just need to thank the rest of us who DO vax, so their little precious ones don't walk around with their skin falling off.
The problem with zealots like yourself is that you assume a great deal. For example both of my children had all of their vaccines. All. of them. You have done nothing to make my children more safe from anything. Let me know when they finish building that statue of you for being a hero. I'll throw bread crumbs around it to feed the birds.
I never brought up mercury. Someone else did. So here is your big Thank you for opting to (VAX) oh wait not coming because we Vaccinated as well. You zealots keeps trying to insist that I am anti vaccine. Please find 1 of my posts where I said don't vaccinate, or that I don't believe in vaccines.

Default Thanks to anti-vaccine hysteria, U.S. measles cases have tripled in 2013

New CDC report: Thanks to anti-vaccine hysteria, U.S. measles cases have tripled in 2013




"In the years before the U.S. vaccination program started in 1963, about 500 people died from measles every year. Tens of thousands more were hospitalized. Today, that number has dropped to almost zero directly as a result of vaccines."


Of course, thanks to these nutbags, even vaccinated people are at some risk (since no vaccine guarantees 100% immunity)

I would consider it just darwinism if your kid dies from measles after you didn't vaccinate him/her. But I do worry for the vaccinated who get it anyway

No. I'm thinking about measles as well all of those former childhood diseases. People in the past really didn't panic over them. Now they panic, they think measles is deadly for most people when in fact it's deadly for very few.

Measles was wipe out around the late 60s. It is pretty bad since it has a 28% fatality rate. I don't think you are thinking about measles.

It is tragic.

The irony is, vaccinations have been so successful in eradicating childhood pandemics, people have forgotten how rife pandemics were prior to the advent of vaccines. There is nothing "natural" about our relative freedom from child pandemics. At 78, my father is old enough to remember polio, the last great pandemic to kill large numbers of children. Forgoing vaccines would have been unthinkable in his youth.

Oh sure. Politicians and the AMA are lying to you, but it's not a conspiracy?

I AM the parent of an autistic child. I'm also a Community Health Nurse.
