FDA chief: Federal government might step in if states don't change lax vaccine laws - CNN
Quote:
"Some states are engaging in such wide exemptions that they're creating the opportunity for outbreaks on a scale that is going to have national implications," FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Tuesday in an interview with CNN.

If "certain states continue down the path that they're on, I think they're going to force the hand of the federal health agencies," he added.

...

The commissioner was vague on when he thought the federal government should take action and what exactly that action should be. "You could mandate certain rules about what is and isn't permissible when it comes to allowing people to have exemptions," he said.

He said he hoped that the measles outbreak would make state officials realize that they needed to get stricter on exemptions.

...

Gottlieb said he is "deeply skeptical" of all exemptions except medical ones.
How fun when I agree with a Trump official!

Even Facebook, arguably the shittiest and most toxic repository of misinformation in the universe, plans to take action against dirtbag anti-vaxxers. We're not talking highly significant action or anything, but damn. If FACEBOOK is saying "Geez, breh, that's too much misinformation even for us," you goddamn jolly well know things are fucked up.

Our greatgrandkid is autistic, and our daughter has been buying into all the anti-Vaxxing BS, and now has gotten into the Anti-Fluoride campaign.
She's convinced that somehow either Fluoride in the water, or the vaccinations caused the Autism.
And now, somehow, we can fix him by not vaccinating other kids, and/or getting rid of the Fluoride in the water we drink.
Now the Mrs is starting to buy into all of this.
They keep sending me crap from Mercola.com and realfarmacy.com.

FFS. Those are two of the sites with THE MOST medical misinformation EVER.

The fact that there have been people on the Autistic Spectrum for longer than they have been vaxxing, or Fluoridating water seems to never sink in.

Should a guy who believes that antibiotics cure measles be legislating vaccination exemptions?

Never would have thought that a serious question, but hey, welcome to 2019 America.

This is a good one:

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/kids-...m_npd_nn_tw_ma

Kids who get diagnosed with Autism are more likely not to be vaccinated.

If it was the other way around the anti-vaxxers would claim causation. Somehow I don't see them doing it now.

More on how anti-vaxxers are really just salt-of-the-earth, truth-loving advocates of freedom:

Quote:
When a child dies, members of the group sometimes encourage each other to go on that parent's Facebook page. The anti-vaxers then post messages telling the parents they're lying and their child never existed, or that the parent murdered them, or that vaccines killed the child, or some combination of all of those.

Nothing is considered too cruel. Just days after their children died, mothers say anti-vaxers on social media called them whores, the c-word and baby killers.
Her son died. And then anti-vaxers attacked her - CNN

Again, parents make sure you do your due diligence as parents. See that all your children are properly vaccinated. And avoid anti-vaxxers. They have AIDS and delight in spreading it.
