The exponential increase in the autism/autism spectrum prevalence rate since 1985 (1 in 2,500) to (1 in 45) in 2916, is evidence of an epidemic, not, as the deniers will have it, “an optical illusion” or “a statistical mirage”:
“today a million and more Americans, almost all under thirty, have been formally diagnosed with autism…Most with an autism diagnosis will never [lead normal lives] or be responsible for their health and welfare. Both the increase and the burden it imposes are widely recognized by thousands of parents and frontline professionals such as nurses and teachers. Yet some of the most prominent and powerful people in medicine, the media, and government deny it.”

Are children’s right to a normal life being sacrificed as collateral damage to protect high utilization of vaccines?
What Did CDC Officials Know About Thimerosal; When Did They Know It, & What Did They Do About It?
By 1992, Sweden, Norway & Denmark had eliminated the use of Thimerosal from childhood vaccines, due to safety concerns; Japan followed suit; the U.S. did not … And Evidence of Institutional Corruption at the Institute of Medicine

unruly_mattress: You keep talking about vaccines as if it’s a major source of revenue for drug companies. They’re not. [This](http://who.int/influenza_vaccines_plan/resources/session_10_kaddar.pdf) puts the global revenue from vaccines at $23 billion in 2013. To compare, the US expenditure on healthcare in 2013 was about 2.8 trillion dollars. Less than 1%, and that’s revenue in the entire world.
Opioids, for example, are a million times worse than vaccines:
* Opioids make more money to the drug companies – In 2016, [about $80 billion](http://wolterskluwer.com/company/newsroom/news/2016/09/costs-of-us-prescription-opioid-epidemic-estimated-at-usd78.5-billion.html) in America alone.
* Mostly unnecessary – America [consumes 80% of the opioids worldwide](https://www.cnbc.com/2016/04/27/americans-consume-almost-all-of-the-global-opioid-supply.html), meaning the rest of the world does just fine without them.
* Science shows that opioids cause death and ruins lives across America. That’s the same science, mind you, that you’re so upset about when it supports vaccines.
JumboReverseShrimp: The drug companies are corrupt as is the CDC. Watch *Vaxxed* and read *Dissolving Illusions* and you’ll learn a lot about the history of vaccines (mostly from the book) and the corruption in the CDC (mostly from the film). The CDC’s corruption looks a lot like the SEC’s were people go from banksters to regulators and back again.
Irishconspiracy: Whats your take on this OP? Are you completely anti vac? And Why if so
toomuchpork: Quite the study that can predict the future!!

Also, AMA about any vaccine.

becomesthehunted: Hi I was wondering if I could ask OP something. I am a research biologist, not directly in vaccine research, but I know some wonderful people who do work in it. They really want to help people and prevent diseases. All of our funding either comes from government contracts, or some private companies or non profits that provide us with the cash to pay for our research. These are all the groups your link pointed to, including the CDC, NIH, and even the department of defense. If you were to remove pharmaceutical companies and the government from funding for these ideas, who would pay for the research? I and other scientists need to make a living (which outside of full PhDs is not the extravagant), so who pays for adequate research into the efficacy of vaccines?
Myhearthergain: Vaccines are massively important. Looking for forward to more outbreaks of previously defeated diseases thanks to the ludicrous antivax movement. Keep up the good work.
Reportingthreat: Ok, I’ve worked with some academics who research vaccines. Multiple months of emailing and data analysis. For them (and me i guess?) to be in on some conspiracy, we’d have to have faked a whole paper, faked tons of emails. They would have to be stringing me along for tons of conversations. And the conference of 100’s of research presentations would have to similarly be months of work for a made up front.
It doesn’t make any logistical sense. They would need to be some underground source of information and communication that no one told me about, and no one has ever leaked, while thousands of scientists participate knowingly in fake research programs.
No one goes into academic research to get rich.
polkadotgirl: Glad to see this stickied.

RatsuMacKinnon: Fines are fine. A well done single-payer system would be great tho! I work in healthcare and it is a SHITSHOW with the sheer amount of private middle men making bank of the desperation of people not wanting to die. I really need a new job.
mgtowapprentice: Why has nobody called out the OP for their agenda posting? Look at the pattern of their post history. Only posts about anti-vax or to try to discredit medical professionals. Many posts per day than a one week “vacation” from posting (just so happens it was last week which is holiday week in the US) and then blasts this subreddit with 8 posts about anti-vax in the span of one hour.
DigitalHeretik: We should get rid of vaccines so dangerous diseases that have been eradicated by them (vaccines) will return; thereby killing off the human race quicker, and letting nature try again.

A US military agency is investing $100m in genetic extinction technologies that could wipe out malarial mosquitoes, invasive rodents or other species, emails released under freedom of information rules show.

The Philippines suspends dengue vaccine because of ‘severe disease’ risks admitted by its manufacturer
The decision comes after the announcement of the French pharmaceutical manufacturer Sanofi (link) that its vaccine, Dengvaxia, is efficient only if the subject had previously had been infected. Otherwise, more cases of severe disease could occur.
“These findings highlight the complex nature of dengue infection. We are working with health authorities to ensure that prescribers, vaccinators and patients are fully informed of the new findings, with the goal of enhancing the impact of Dengvaxia in dengue-endemic countries,” said Dr. Su-Peing Ng, Global Medical Head, Sanofi Pasteur.
Reportingthreat: I’m glad that Sanofi caught this problem. It would have been better if they’d caught it earlier. Here’s an [article from statnews](https://www.statnews.com/2017/11/30/dengue-vaccine-worsen-disease-sanofi/) that give details.
The vaccine appears to be effective at preventing the second infection hemorrhagic fever, but only if you’ve already had the first infection. That’s good since dengue is a huge killer in the tropics and a hemorrhagic fever is a miserable way to die. The really bad part is that it makes the disease progression worse if you’ve never had dengue.
Sanofi taking a 100 million euro loss
axolotl_peyotl: What baffling is that even among those who are aware that Big Pharma is profit-driven and corrupt, there is a strong resistance to question the safety and efficacy of vaccines.
They would much rather keep us sick (and therefore make more money) than protect us.
We DON’T need more vaccines.
Some1CP: Why the hell is there a “dengue vaccine”? It isn’t even something your body can get immune as much as the other diseases.
My parents tried to make me take this shit. They take the flu one annually but I didn’t take it this year. Guess who got a week in bed with heavy flu symptoms?
der_titan: The World Health Organization only recommends a dengue vaccine in places where the risks of dengue are high, since it’s a sh*tty disease that can lead to an even sh*ttier death.

>What are WHO’s recommendations related to CYD-TDV?
>WHO recommends that countries should consider introduction of the dengue vaccine CYD-TDV only in geographic settings (national or subnational) where epidemiological data indicate a high burden of disease.
