The anti vaccine people don't know how dangerous their choice is for their children's health.

& the health of other children who, for other medical reasons, really can't get vaccinated. Herd immunity is what virtually wiped out smallpox, polio & other diseases. Without that, they can all come back, with a vengeance!

I'm 77 years old...so polio was around during my childhood. It was really bad. @phxbillcee


Pollution of some sort is my guess. Environmental, Electro Magnetic, Radioactive, Plastics. It's going to take a lot of hard work to winnow out the answer. Doesn't help that we have a fucktard for polluter-in-Chief!

When i see a teary eyed child it really sucks my soul...this one hit it?


There seems to be truth on both sides but vaccines work for the public in general. There is a ridiculous amount of autism these days, unless they could show it isn't because of vaccines and was always here but never recognised till recently.

It isn’t because of vaccines and has always been here but never recognized until recently.

I've heard some people say that autism is caused by eating processed foods during pregnancy. I'm not 100% in agreement with that, I love to see something to back that up.

We don’t have to prove that autism is NOT due to vaccines. Just like the god assertion - if you’re going to claim something “is” then you have to show some supporting evidence.
There are many things about our world that are different than they were 50 years ago - including the amount of toxins we are exposed to and the way that we identify and label mental and psychological conditions.

All I know is something happened to drastically increase the number of registered autistic children. That increase may very well be a result of more diagnosis than more cases of autism. I'm glad in a way that investigations are taking place to see what could be going on. In my schooldays, mental illness and dyslexia, among other problems, were dealt with through corporal punishment. Could it be that the prohibition of such punishment has allowed the problem to rise to the surface? Another way of looking at it is that there isn't a problem unless you make it one and children who lived before the time of institutionalised education were never placed in the predicament of being round pegs forced to go through square holes. The children I'm thinking about are, of course, those who we might say are on the Asperger scale rather than seriously autistic.

@brentan Here is an article that may help to shed some light. I have always thought that autism had to have a genetic source and I discounted any factors that occurred after birth, such as vaccinations. This article provides other possible reasons to consider.


See the link I posted last night for a humorous anti- vaxxer story that correlates to this meme.

Some of those comments were hilarious! Brutal, but hilarious!

God damn some of these folks are rough. ?
