    I already responded to that. Although I can see why you would miss that when you're so busy trying to insult me.
    Scroll up this thread and see who started with the insults.

    No. Post #70 "Parents rarely know if their infant children have allergies..."

    But that isn't the point. I have made other statements as well that clearly indicate that I am not anti-vaccine but you want to type-cast people, apparently.

    To our non-American members: does your country seem to be entirely overrun by anti-science people too, or is that just us?

    Agreed.

    Outside of those rare exceptions you should get vaccinated
    That is the party line, no doubt about that. The issue is all of the things that we do not know but are convinced that we do know. The issue is all the people lathering up in the ignorance and lapping up what the CDC and Big Pharma tell them. The issue is that there are many children that are affected but this fact is not acknowledged. The issue is that something like 80% of adverse reactions are not reported by doctors making the data unreliable. There are many potential problems that we are ignorant of but the party line is as you stated... few exceptions, get vaccinated, no worries... ouch, an adverse reaction? We have no idea what caused it but there is no way in hell it was the vaccine.

    I love that line... anti-science. If those that made such claims cared about science they would find out what the rapidly rising ADHD rates are from, why so many doctors do not report adverse reactions even though it is federally mandated, why the instant mockery of those that question vaccines even though adverse reactions occur just as the CDC lists or adverse reactions occur for reasons that the doctors do not know?

    THAT is really anti-science.

    I am not arguing for autism.

    I would say that the first reason for higher diagnosis is poor doctors and/or because of the money gained by such a diagnosis in treatment.

    I would argue that since we do not know if the higher diagnosis is because there are more children that actually have ADHD or not though, it is reasonable to question why more children are getting ADHD. We have to err on the side that the doctors can diagnose ADHD correctly, first. If they can't do that then that makes their conclusions that vaccines are not correlated to ADHD even worse.

    In support of vaccinations: the medical community. Against vaccinations: non-doctors and a Playboy model.

    The side you are on determines whether or not you are anti-science.

    Or they can wear one of the many different types of condoms you were mentioning before. And for the record there are variety of different methods to get the vaccine that someone might be allergic too.

    Risks could include everything up to and including death. The CDC even has a National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. I'd consider the risk of death not extremely limited...
    Statistics Reports
    Using the statistics that you provided us from the CDC we can see that 15,684 have claimed to have been harmed or had someone die to vaccines. Out of those 15,684, 3,895 of them were compensated by the CDC for their claim. Let's say that entire 24% was right and the vaccines did more harm than good. In the same information you provided us it shows that over 2,236,678,735 vaccines were dolled out to the public. Now if we assume that the 2,236,678,735 vaccines were safe that would barely make 1% of the vaccines dangerous. Now I don't know the exact stat for this claim, but I think you have a lot better luck winning the lottery than for a vaccine to kill you.

    Most parents before vaccinations didn't have much choice in their children dying of polio either. you can fight and argue with the idea that vaccinations are 'big government' all you like. It's still wildly safer than allowing for diseases to run rampant through the Country once again.

    Already addressed this above.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Why are you focusing on vaccines as cause instead of, well, anything else at all?
