I should have noted this earlier, but the last month has been pretty busy. Turns out that the original research used to support the idea that vaccinations cause autism was based on falsified data.
That’s right. Made up out of whole cloth.
I feel tremendous empathy for the health-care professionals in places like the UK and Minnesota, where childhood diseases are making a comeback due to the idiocy of anti-vaccinators.
In case you wondered why we vaccinate, Jim McDonald has a whole list of reasons:
- Hepatitis B
- Haemophilus influenzae type B
- Chicken Pox
You may not even have heard of these diseases, because we were this close to wiping them out. Now, thanks to a few noisy idiots, you may come accross them all to often in the future.
On tiny little gravestones.
