    Funny story, I'm usually home by 6 watch the channel 2 news, alot of the time, I don't notice when it ends and all of the sudden tmz is on. I stare at it blankley for about 5 minutes then ask the wife "what the **** are they talking about"?


    It makes no sense.

    Yes, instead of an infinitesimally low chance of dying from measles, infants now have an extraordinarily low chance of dying from measles. I'd be much more worried about winning the Lotto.

    There's plenty reason enough to get kids vaccinated without fearmongering and spreading greatly exaggerated claims.

    Do we set aside the polio vaccine as well.

    The mumps virus usually causes swelling in glands just below the ears, giving the appearance of chipmunk cheeks. Before the vaccine, mumps was the most common cause of both meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) and acquired deafness in the U.S. In men, mumps can infect the testicles, which can lead to infertility.

    Rubella is also known as German measles. It can cause a mild rash on the face, swelling of glands behind the ears, and in some cases, swelling of the small joints and low-grade fever. Most children recover quickly with no lasting effects. But if a pregnant woman gets rubella, it can be devastating. If she's infected during the first trimester of pregnancy, there's at least a 20% chance her child will have a birth defect such as blindness, deafness, a heart defect, or mental retardation.

    The human race survived just fine for thousands upon thousands of years without vaccinations...

    But that's only because the vast majority of the country aren't whack job anti-vaxers and get their kids vaccinated. If we all were as ill informed and irrational as them the chances of infants dying of measles and all the other diseases nearly eradicated by vaccines would increase and become serious health threats, again.

    We can't afford to pander to science denying crazy people or treat their views on vaccinations as anything remotely approaching respectable. If widely adopted, their advice would have serious harmful affects on public health.
