To our non-American members: does your country seem to be entirely overrun by anti-science people too, or is that just us?
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.Outside of those rare exceptions you should get vaccinated
THAT is really anti-science.
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.
The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.
