Something that really gets me fired up is all the parents who believe that allowing for their kids to receive vaccines that prevent deadly diseases is a bad idea, not only does this help those who are not vaccinated, it help keep the spread of deadly diseases non existent and keep their children healthy. I read a great article on this, as a will post below. As well the article that states that vaccines are linked with autism, has absolutely not research behind it. The doctor who wrote the article had his medical license revoked, as well as all the other Drs revoked their names from the article, and the journal who posted it came back to say that it was not true, and there was so significant research done to support this. As well through out the years since an amazing amount of data has been collected and research has been conducting saying there is no link between, autism and vaccines. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jennifer-raff/dear-parents-you-are-being-lied-to-about-vaccines_b_5112620.html?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000063 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o65l1YAVaYc
Here is another great articles from theAmerica Academy of Pediatrics stating that through research there has been no link found between autsim and the MMR vaccine. they specifically talk about the first discussion of this by stating: https://www2.aap.org/immunization/families/mmr.html
Andrew Wakefield’s study in The Lancet in 1998 began the concern about MMR and autism. Since the study was published, 10 of the 13 authors have retracted the findings. In 2010, The Lancet retracted the study, citing ethical misconduct on the part of Wakefield.
As well this is a great map to show the outbreak of immunizable diseases: http://www.cfr.org/interactives/GH_Vaccine_Map/#map
