MMR Vaccine & Autism

31 May

This comic is a fantastic overview of the “Mumps, Measles, & Rubella Vaccine Vs. Autism” situation.

Wakefield & MMR

It’s my feeling that a lot of the needle-hysteria that went around during last winter’s H5N1 scare was born out of the paranoia that Wakefield and his followers have fostered – if it hasn’t happened already, it’s just a matter of time before this kind of Luddism gets some sick kid killed.

Even if you don’t know anything about the issue, I encourage you to check out the piece: consider it a mental vaccination against a particularly vicious strain of bunko.
