For most of human history, we didn't know what caused disease. We used to think that fresh air was bad for you. Old women were burned when cows got sick. People used to decapitate each other, dump the heads in the river, then drink downstream; they weren't even trying to gain the intelligence of their fallen foes, because intelligence just isn't a factor for people who drink rotting-head juice. Now we know things. Think of that picture every time you see the vaccination "debate." Scientists study viruses so hard that we know where every single atom is. Jenny McCarthy showed her tits for a living, and she didn't even know how those worked, hiring professionals to install them instead.

Vaccines still not causing autism, even if multiple vaccines are given on the same day:

What does seem to be the case though is that having children later in life does raise the risk a little bit, particularly for older fathers. Even the age of the grandfather seems to correlate. And people are having children later (and having fewer children) on average than they used to.

Vaccine Education Center debunks breastfeeding myth. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Vaccine Education Center is warning that breast-feeding is not a substitute for immunization:
Sometimes parents wonder whether they can forgo immunizations for their baby because the baby is being breastfed; however, this is not the safest decision because antibodies in human breast milk bathe the intestinal surface but are not absorbed. Therefore, breast milk antibodies never enter the lymphatics or circulation where they would be needed to protect against diseases for which infection in the blood (circulation) is an important part of how viruses and bacteria cause disease. Examples of these types of diseases include diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella (chickenpox), pneumococcus, Haemophilus influenzae type b, polio, hepatitis A and hepatitis B.
The statement was issued in response to faulty naturopathic advice to delay immunization because breast milk provides a "natural alternative" to immunization.

Apparently this is old and allegedly false news (from 2010) that went viral again for some reason.

She's denying it however (this one is recent).
Jenny McCarthy Slams Rumor That Her 11-Year-Old Son Evan Doesn't Have Autism

Jenny McCarthy is setting the record straight. The View co-host has slammed reports that her son Evan, 11, doesn't have autism. On Friday, a rumor surfaced that the 41-year-old revealed that her only child is not autistic, even though she's publicly talked about his condition over the years.

"Stories circulating online, claiming that I said my son Evan may not have autism after all, are blatantly inaccurate and completely ridiculous," McCarthy tweeted on Jan. 3. "Evan was diagnosed with autism by the Autism Evaluation Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and was confirmed by the State of California (through their Regional Center). The implication that I have changed my position, that my child was not initially diagnosed with autism (and instead may suffer from Landau-Kleffner Syndrome), is both irresponsible and inaccurate."

She continued: "These stories cite a 'new' Time Magazine interview with me, which was actually published in 2010, that never contained any such statements by me. Continued misrepresentations, such as these, only serve to open wounds of the many families who are courageously dealing with this disorder. Please know that I am taking every legal measure necessary to set this straight."

Growing Up Unvaccinated
I find myself wondering about the claim that complications from childhood illnesses are extremely rare but that “vaccine injuries” are rampant. If this is the case, I struggle to understand why I know far more people who have experienced complications from preventable childhood illnesses than I have ever met with complications from vaccines. I have friends who became deaf from measles. I have a partially sighted friend who contracted rubella in the womb. My ex got pneumonia from chickenpox. A friend’s brother died from meningitis.

Anecdotal evidence is nothing to base decisions on. But when facts and evidence-based science aren’t good enough to sway someone’s opinion about vaccinations, then this is where I come from. After all, anecdotes are the anti-vaccine supporters’ way: “This is my personal experience.” Well, my personal experience prompts me to vaccinate my children and myself. I got the flu vaccine recently, and I got the whooping cough booster to protect my son in the womb. My natural immunity—from having whooping cough at age 5—would not have protected him once he was born.

I understand, to a point, where the anti-vaccine parents are coming from. Back in the ’90s, when I was a concerned, 19-year-old mother, frightened by the world I was bringing my child into, I was studying homeopathy, herbalism, and aromatherapy; I believed in angels, witchcraft, clairvoyants, crop circles, aliens at Nazca, giant ginger mariners spreading their knowledge to the Aztecs, the Incas, and the Egyptians, and that I was somehow personally blessed by the Holy Spirit with healing abilities. I was having my aura read at a hefty price and filtering the fluoride out of my water. I was choosing to have past life regressions instead of taking antidepressants. I was taking my daily advice from tarot cards. I grew all my own veg and made my own herbal remedies.

I was so freaking crunchy that I literally crumbled. It was only when I took control of those paranoid thoughts and fears about the world around me and became an objective critical thinker that I got well. It was when I stopped taking sugar pills for everything and started seeing medical professionals that I began to thrive physically and mentally.

If you think your child’s immune system is strong enough to fight off vaccine-preventable diseases, then it’s strong enough to fight off the tiny amounts of dead or weakened pathogens present in any of the vaccines.

But not everyone around you is that strong, not everyone has a choice, not everyone can fight those illnesses, and not everyone can be vaccinated. If you have a healthy child, then your healthy child can cope with vaccines and can care about those unhealthy children who can’t.

Yep, they don't. And vaccines have worked so nicely that we have forgotten what, for example, smallpox really was:

I feel genuinely sorry for those people and difficult to perceive. When I was a child, I had a total of fifteen vaccine administrations (not excluding multiple doses concerning the same vaccine). All of the vaccinations were against diseases which possess a much higher mortality rate than any simple ailment, such as the common cold - polio, tetanus, tuberculosis, pneumococcal, etc. Diseases that can often screw you in the long-term or leave you six feet under.

But anti-vaxxers don't realize this until it's too late. The main reason there are vaccines for these diseases is due to the high mortality rate of the diseases these vaccinations immunise against. It would be less depressing if anti-vaxxers had legitimate, substantiated concerns against the vaccination cause, but they don't. All of the anti-vax agendas are founded on debunked studies or ignorance regarding basic chemistry.

Last year in England we had an outbreak of measles in Wales due to a decline in MMR vaccination. Thus all too many (fit and healthy) people died from the disease. ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-politics-23244628 )

Can you guess why there was such a dramatic decline in MMR vaccination? /rhetorical

The disease, previously unheard of in modern medicine, has become endemic in the United Kingdom.

I think about 20 years ago Japan allowed choice with regards to whooping cough vaccination. Anax may be able to correct me on this since he lives there, but the death rate soured. Not just the incidence--the mortality.

People forget why vaccines were developed in the very first place.

My impression is that they are overly cautious and sensitive to any adverse events related to vaccines (even where causality can't be shown) and not cautious enough about the downsides of not vaccinating.

Here's an article from 2011:

http://pediatrics.about.com/b/2011/03/0 ... roblem.htm
(Good article, lots of anti-vax comments under it. The doctor who wrote it responds well though.)

Here's one from The Lancet from last year:

Can't help fools:
Anti-vaccine messages may cause permanent harm

A study of messages designed to reduce vaccine misrepresentations and increase vaccination rates for the measle-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine has found that pro-vaccine messages do not always work as intended and sometimes have the opposite effect. [Nyhan B. and others. Effective messages in vaccine promotion: A randomized trial. Pediatrics, March 3, 2014] The study involved 1759 parents who have children in their household age 17 or younger. Parents were randomly assigned to receive 1 of 4 interventions: (a) information explaining the lack of evidence that MMR causes autism, (b) textual information about the dangers of the diseases prevented by MMR, (c) images of children who have diseases prevented by the MMR vaccine, or (d) a dramatic narrative about an infant who almost died of measles. None of the interventions appeared to increase parental intent to vaccinate a future child. Refuting claims of an MMR/autism link successfully reduced misperceptions that vaccines cause autism but nonetheless decreased intent to vaccinate among parents who had the least favorable vaccine attitudes. In addition, images of sick children increased expressed belief in a vaccine/autism link and a dramatic narrative about an infant in danger increased self-reported belief in serious vaccine side effects. The authors concluded:
Current public health communications about vaccines may not be effective. For some parents, they may actually increase misperceptions or reduce vaccination intention. Attempts to increase concerns about communicable diseases or correct false claims about vaccines may be especially likely to be counterproductive. More study of pro-vaccine messaging is needed.

Individual counseling during which parents voice their fears may be more effective but can require considerable time. It might also be useful to try to decrease the spread of misinformation through mainstream media channels.

Story in TIME claims there may be a link between autism and pollution:

http://time.com/25424/growing-evidence- ... pollution/
A new study offers strong evidence that environmental toxins play a role in the disorder. The report looked at birth defects associated with parental exposure to pollution and found a 1% increase in the defects corresponded to a 283% increase in autism

Several studies have shown a link between air pollution and autism, but a new study published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology is one of the largest to put the two together.

One other bit of irony that escaped my attention until now:

Supposedly vaccines are bad because they contain "toxins" but:
“I love Botox, I absolutely love it,” she said. “I get it minimally, so I can still move my face. But I really do think it’s a savior.”
Read more at http://www.accesshollywood.com/jenny-mc ... jBhZuY7.99
So here we have a real toxin, and not just any toxin but the most virulent one known to science and she has it injected into her face with a syringe.

But no vaccines please, they contain "toxins"!

#JennyAsks what I want in a mate? Someone with enough grasp of reality to know that Botox is toxic and vaccines aren't.

Someone who respects that science isn't on some secret malicious crusade to screw us over and that vaccinations save lives #JennyAsks

While I do love getting diseases that were eradicated in the last century, I would say vaccinated is a trait I look for #JennyAsks

Enough understanding of science that they don't end up with a "body count" website named after them http://t.co/wF7gGMwpvU #JennyAsks

MOAR from t3h Watch of Quacks!
Australian anti-vax group under more pressure

Last year, New South Wales Fair Trading concluded that the Australian Vaccination Network's name was misleading. [Jabour B. Australian Vaccination Network ordered to change name: Magistrate said group lobbied against vaccinations and did not give comprehensive account of pros and cons. The Guardian, Nov 24, 2013] After its court battle ended, the organization did change its name to the Australian Vaccination-skeptics Network. However, it continued to use the abbreviation "AVN." This week, the group announced that an agency official has ordered it to stop using "AVN" rather than "AVSN," which, among other things, would mean that it would have to abandon its current Web address and would rank lower on searches. [Beattie G. Apparently our acronym is now misleading? Australian Vaccine-skeptics Network Web site, March 25, 2014]
Fixed the linkypoo in it.
