All the more sad for being avoidable.

Vaccines are too new? Excuse me, but they have been around for about 300 years, with an enviable safety record! Where did that doctor get his license/training? Doctors who believe that and spread this myth need to have their licenses pulled and never allowed to practice medicine again!

Google Edward Jenner and vaccinations against smallpox.

This isn't surprising. The power of crystals and pyramids always trumps Western medicine.

I once read an article somewhere that if you take video of your baby right after they are born, a specially trained doctor can look at how your baby moves and interacts with its environment, and tell you if your child will develop autism. It's not always evident early in life; some children show signs of autism in early childhood, usually around the time they are getting their childhood vaccinations which makes it coincidental, not causal.

Scientists Shocked—Shocked!—to Learn Anti-Vaxxers Tend to Believe Other Conspiracies, Too

Spend time talking to someone who considers themselves an anti-vaxxer—or more generously, a vaccine skeptic—and something becomes apparent pretty soon: The conspiracy well usually runs deep. There’s no shortage of anti-vaxxers who also believe in other iffy things, like “natural” cancer treatments and a government-ordered 9/11. A new study, published Thursday in Health Psychology, reaffirms that obvious connection while providing some insight on why it’s so hard to sway anti-vaxxers from demonstrably false beliefs.

Researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia conducted an online survey of more than 5,000 adults living across 24 countries, including the U.S., India, and China. Among other things, they were asked about their attitude toward vaccines as well as whether they believed in conspiracies surrounding three major world events: JFK’s assassination, Princess Diana’s death, and the 9/11 attacks. They were also asked if they believed in the existence of a New World Order (e.g. the Illuminati).


Taken as a whole, the findings suggest—not for the first time—that it’s pointless to argue with diehard anti-vaxxers through facts and logic alone. Other research has even shown that highlighting myths in order to debunk them might actually make things worse and reinforce the myths in people’s minds.
