Immunizations should NOT be required. It is much easier for people who do not have a child with autism to be so non-chalant about the fact that immunizations may very well be causing autims or increasing a child's chance of having autism. As a parent of a child with autism who noticed a huge difference in my child after his MMR shot, I am a firm believer that the shots ARE NOT for every child. I encourage all parents to do their own research before they make the decision to follow the 'standard' immunization schedule. One size does not fit all when it comes to immunizations.

I think the real question is:
Who are you to say that anyone is not qualified to interpret information for themselves?
If you choose to allow the government to lead you blindly, that is your choice and your decision. I have a different viewpoint, an informed perspective, and I do not choose to live as a slave to the government, the majority, or anyone else. When the freedom to choose is infringed for one, it is diminished for all.
You are you to claim that your perspective is informed?

You've demonstrated nothing which would indicate that this is the truth. You're claims, in fact, show the opposite of that.

You're a conspiracy theorist nutcase. If you think that crap you make up counts as being informed, then he's absolutely right that you are not qualified to decide.

First of all, there have been literally HUNDREDS of studies which show that vaccines and autism are not related.

The rates of autism are the same among unvaccinated kids.
The causes of autism are GENETIC.
There is no component of the MMR which could conceivably cause autism.

AND...

MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!!

The ONE and ONLY study which CLAIMED a cause was demonstrated to not only be wrong, but was in fact FRAUDULENT because the person doing the study (Wakefield) literally falsified the data to get the result he wanted.

In other words, there's NO Evidence to support the claim which was made up in the first place by someone trying to sell their own competitive vaccine.

STOP MURDERING CHILDREN with your misinformation.

YOU PERSONALLY HAVE KILLED CHILDREN.

First you complain the sources we present are based on quackery or, second, we are too stupid to understand what is said in the REAL WORLD of science.
However you are simply superior in whatever it might take to come to your conclusions.

The cause of autism is genetic and Americans are eating a genetically modified diet. I hope you are first in line for the genetically modified flu vaccines they are approving. It is proven by many studies that GMO is causing many health problems but you can't see that. Why is GMO banned in so many countries? Meanwhile big chemical companies in u.s. do their own testing, I guess we use the honor system and believe they wont do anything wrong. A field of GMO wheat pops up that they supposedly did away with years ago shouldn't worry anybody? Testing elsewhere has found main chemical in roundup in urine test of every person tested. Another study has found GMO food bacterium had penetrated lining of stomach and spread through blood changing human cell DNA. Science is in way over their heads and they can't stop what's happening now. And by supporting the use of untested GMO it is you who are the child killer. Also to reply to "someone" boasting of academic degrees, I also have impressive educational background with multiple degrees. I would rather make my point and express my opinion without boasting of pieces of paper like everyone should be impressed and value your opinions. So many people think they are more intelligent than they truly are and that is why we are in trouble with GMO. It will cause problems to all of us and you and someone will still be Herr praising them.

Oh Nuggy now we use the guilt trips. If y'all don't do what we say you are a murderer.
BUT.
How many people did Bayer murder with their AIDS INFESTED DRUGS?
How many victims of SV-40 CANCER CONTAMINATED Polio vaccines?
How many of us are screwed over by BIO-WARFARE mycoplasma?

You accusations in the second paragraph themselves betray a preconception fed by speculations that a significant number of scientists (it would seem to you most all) are guilty of some sort of self deception or having dishonorable motives.
As far as the studies you pay heed to, more often than not, there are are sound reasons based on scientific principles that the so-called scientific community will not pay attention to these studies. I other words, the studiies are in many instances flawed in design.
I still remember when I thought as you do. The lesson was a hard one to accept, but impossible to ignore.

Unless you have the training and degree qualifications, then you are NOT qualified. Peer reviewed journals are written by and are addressed to professionals in the field, they are not intended for the layman. Understanding of the material requires a large amount information that is understood by both the writer and the reader. Otherwise, there is no point to having the articles peer reviewed prior to publication.
Your attitude exemplifies a concept I term, "Mystification of Authority". This is the idea implanted in the minds of people from a very early age that tells them they can't understand, they can't comprehend, so unless they've got degrees and qualifications running out of their ears they shouldn't even try. To my way of thinking this is the most insidious form of slavery; slavery of the mind.

Just pretend you don't know the corrupt US failed to teach the truth while everyone else will profit from letting criminals rule our medicine..
Just pretend it not coming in piles from across the globe...
The enslaved today are barely conscious, let alone able to comprehend their own enslavement, nor can't they even imagine how they themselves provide the shackles and chains that keep them thus.

Maybe Someone should listen more closely to George Carlin's later material.

You understand that you're not qualified? Fine. That being the case, how would you know whether another is, or isn't, qualified? If indeed you are not, what is stopping you from educating yourself and getting qualified?

Here are a couple of things I've noticed about you thus far. Either you can spell, or you have spell check turned on {so few do these days}. Your sentence structure and how you use your words shows some intelligence {how much is yet to be seen, but you do seem to be above the common rabble}.

Now let me put this forth, just for you to consider and reflect upon.
If you can read and use a dictionary/web search, what can be written that you cannot come to understand?

If you have basic math skills, can you not expand on them to attain the skill level you need to comprehend the concepts presented, at least to some degree?

The answer to both is: Sure you can, if you just do it. The math used rarely gets beyond Algebra, unless we're talking Physics or engineering, and in this forum that is highly unlikely.

You need to consider studying a textbook about research methods. It's is quite clear that your expertise is limited. Hint: repeated railings against the "corrupt US ..."
Do you assume that the US government is honorable, noble, and just in all its ways?

Espionage is revealing secrets and classified material to the enemy, and Snowden revealed secrets and classified material to the people of the US and is being charged with Espionage by this government. Does that not make us, the people of the US, the "enemy" in the view of our own government?
