The reason for this ridiculous belief stems from a paper published 16 years ago, in which surgeon Andrew Wakefield studied 12 children with Autism and found that 8 of them had developed their symptoms shortly after receiving their MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccines. However there was only casual correlation at best, and the sample size was way to small to be taken seriously. Fast forward to 2004, and we find out that this asshole had actually falsified data after being hired by a lawyer to find evidence against the vaccine for a lawsuit. In 2010 his medical licence and research was retracted, but the damage had already long been done. The media had latched on to it shortly after publishing, and legions of scared parents fell for it hook, line and sinker. Even after his work has been discredited, ignorant celebrities still have the gall to appear on television decrying vaccines as 'injected toxins'.   
   
Today we are starting to see a resurgence in measles thanks to this (it had been nearly eradicated by the time the paper was published), as well as other easily preventable diseases. It is estimated that the decision to refuse vaccinations has been attributed to over 1336 deaths as of this year.   
   
Wakefield deserves life in prison, perhaps even capital punishment for the death and suffering his lies have caused. Nothing infuriates me more than people who use  junk science and twisted information to spread lies that hurt people. May God have mercy on their souls, for I shall not.   
   
Rant over, sorry you had to see that.

I don't understand why parents don't vaccinate the kids surely the parents were vaccinated and they turned out okay
User avatar #19 to #5 - nicoquitemad (06/11/2014) [-]
I wasn't vaccinated until I was 14 and got two nails bit off by a dog. I had to get shots for that, and my parents decided to just go on and get me the rest of the vaccines I had missed, as well as start on vaccines for my younger siblings. 6½ years later I still have no idea why they didn't give me vaccines to begin with beyond the whole "oh no, I don't want to bring my baby painful needles" thing.

Here's what I don't get about the whole "Vaccines cause autism" debate. Why the hell are people so concerned about their child developing a psychological illness? I have it and I'm perfectly fine. It's not like it's Cancer or AIDS or something, right?

There are degrees of autism, ranging from "difficulty empathising with people" to "completely unable to function."

Not trying to defend idiots that don't vaccinate their kids, but my cousin has autism and he literally can't function properly in a social environment. Not everyone that has a mental illness is fine, and taking care of him is such a hassle for his parents. It's both mentally and physically draining, and I don't envy anyone who has to take care of people with mental illnesses. No offense.

Of course she isn't vaccinating the kid you asshole. Injecting toxins into a baby for diseases that arent even around anymore? What kind of ****** up rationalization is that? It's been proven in a study that vaccines are a direct link to autism. That's why I got my immunizations by licking an autistic kid.

i know the diseases are still around and vaccines are seriously necessary. is joke

There seriously should be laws that ensure that kids receive the vaccinations they need irrespective of parents' wishes. No kid should die because their parents are retarded.

Some public schools force it, and a fair amount of colleges have requirements.
User avatar #49 to #26 - jukuku (06/12/2014) [-]
There was a ruling on a case which allowed forced vaccinations as it is for the greater good. We have every single reason to believe that vaccines are safe and are incredibly effective but these mongs are allowed to act as a vector for lethal and crippling diseases. Enough is enough.
User avatar #87 - thatguyontheright (06/12/2014) [-]
The whole reasoning for the "rethink vaccines" thing pisses me off. People are scared that their kid will get Autism from a vaccine.

This says to me that they'd rather let their child suffer a disease that could have been prevented, maybe even die....just because they didn't want their kids to be a little different? Well bitch, if you don't vaccinate for Polio, your kid will be very different.

I know three people who have autism, well Aspergers...but you wouldn't really notice unless they told you.
User avatar #88 to #87 - thatguyontheright (06/12/2014) [-]
in addendum, I think the movie Rain Man may have fueled it.
User avatar #109 to #87 - spankyy (06/12/2014) [-]
The funny thing is, scientists have found evidence that Autism begins in the womb, and is a genetic defect.

Also as a side note I believe in the last year or two they changed the classification on Aspergers and it is no longer considered an autism spectrum disorder. My best friend has an autistic brother and sister and they knew they had it within a year of their birth (doctor's diagnosed it that is). My friend does not have it. All 3 are with different fathers so his mother is the common link here.
#92 to #87 - craigfire (06/12/2014) [-]
there is 0 proof that vaccines give people autism there is no concrete evidence everything is circumstantial at best. There are now formerly eradicated viruses coming back like measles mumps and freaking polio for christs sake. tell me now autism or smallpox? the choice is yours.

I have pretty much been vaccinated for almost every major disease (MMR, Hepatitis, ect.) but I usually do not get annual flu shots. Most of the time when I have gotten the flu my body has fought it off within a few days and then I'm back on my feet.

Whenever I'm at the clinic my doctor recommends the HPV shot (which he says also prevents cervical cancer) but I am skeptical to receive it as long as I am having safe sex with a partner.

Thoughts on that anyone?
#43 to #35 - fisefraeser (06/12/2014) [-]
Aren't annual flu shot for old people or just people with poor health?

Why not? What's the worst that can happen?
#53 to #43 - anon (06/12/2014) [-]
Yeah, which is one of the reasons I don't get it. My immune system seems to handle the flu pretty well.

The only problem is that the HPV vaccine is a series of shots. And I'm an out-of-state college student so if I began to get one of the shots it would "expire" in my body and the whole process would have to be repeated. Excuses, though.
#55 to #53 - fisefraeser (06/12/2014) [-]
It's same with me, and I haven't had any vaccines since I was 14 or something.

What are the side-effects? Headaches or some kind of pain? Yeah, it must be tedious have, but it sure is better than cancer.

If the doctor recommended to you, then I don't really see why you shouldn't. You could just ask him if it was okey, as long as you had safe sex.

Her der I'm not going to vaccinate my kids because polio, measles, hepatitis A and B and Lockjaw are all preventable and debilitating or deadly and have declined between 99.9-100% since vaccinations started without any widespread side effects but I read a discredited study on the internet that vaccines cause autism.

Dude, vaccines are way more efficient if everybody does them, and the autism ******** has been declared as false even from the idiot that said that first. But because of him, in england there were an epidemic infection (don't remember of what) because dumb mothers believed him and did not vaccinated their children: many lost their lives.

In the UK we have people like Carol Vorderman (who is seen as been rather intelligent) telling people not to vaccinate their kids. Shocking.

Loved that scene from House, so true.

this is out of context. it's a lot more funny when you hear her complain about how diseases are made up by companies to create better vaccination business and then he bitch slaps her with words.
