    Vaccine Critics Turn Defensive Over Measles [W:1210]

    Many schools demand students have vaccinations. Thoughts on vaccination are? Consider the costs of not having your child vaccinated- not always money- but health risks to themselves and others.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/31/us...=top-news&_r=0

    HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Their children have been sent home from school. Their families are barred from birthday parties and neighborhood play dates. Online, people call them negligent and criminal. And as officials in 14 states grapple to contain a spreading measles outbreak that began near here at Disneyland, the parents at the heart of America’s anti-vaccine movement are being blamed for incubating an otherwise preventable public-health crisis.

    Measles anxiety rippled thousands of miles beyond its center on Friday as officials scrambled to try to contain a wider spread of the highly contagious disease — which America declared vanquished 15 years ago, before a statistically significant number of parents started refusing to vaccinate their children.

    The anti-vaccination movement is so stupid it almost makes my blood boil. Even if vaccinations and autism were related in any way, shape, or form I rather live with my child being a potato then for him to catch Measles and die.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Would you rather him live as a potato than scratch for a week and live a normal life? You do not get to choose what the side-effects will be. They happen or they don't.

    The uproar over vaccinations being connected to Autism was bunk. The Brit MD who was involved in creating this crap is no longer permitted to practice.

    Vaccinations should be required before being allowed to send your child to school, unless the child has a valid medical reason not to have them.

    You shouldn't be allowed to put my kid at risk because you're an idiot.

    Considering that the anti-vaccine movement endangers everyone, not just the poor kids left open to disease...

    It's a public health risk to not get vaccinations for diseases that at one time were wide spread. I'm sad to hear some diseases that were once almost eradicated are coming back due to people not vaccinating their children.

    Autism/MMR Vaccine Study Faked: FAQ
    But now a lengthy investigation by U.K. investigative reporter Brian Deer finds that Wakefield deliberately faked the study. Deer's findings, first published in the Sunday Times, now appear in BMJ -- accompanied by a scathing editorial by BMJ editors Fiona Godlee and colleagues.

    "Deer unearthed evidence of clear falsification," the editorial says. "Who perpetrated this fraud? There is no doubt that it was Wakefield's."

    Andrew Wakefield's Vaccination and Autism Study: Allegations of Fraud With Financial Motivations*|*Glenn D. Braunstein, M.D.

    The investigation by London Sunday Times reporter Brian Deer revealed payments to Wakefield in excess of £435,000 (approximately $674,000) from lawyers who were preparing lawsuits against drug companies that manufactured the vaccines, creating "experimenter bias" even before the study began. In addition, Deer reported that Dr. Wakefield had filed a patent for a new measles vaccine and proposed to develop a new company that would develop new diagnostic tests and therapeutics including vaccines. In 2010, after the GMC's most exhaustive fit-to-practice hearing in its history, Wakefield was banned from practicing medicine in Britain.

    I blame the anti-science hippies and the anti-science christian fundies for this nonsense. I've never seen such ideologically different groups being so collectively responsible for widespread stupidity.
