Are you saying that the incidence of disease declined right about the time humans learned to wash their hands?

Maybe autism will end when we figure out that injecting infants with mercury is a bad idea.

We don't you idiot. First, there are two TOTALLY different elements referred to as mercury. Second, no scientific link has ever been established to Autism. You dumbasses feed children hundreds of pounds of fast and process food with tons of chemicals and then go apesh1t about a couple of shots. How stupid are you people?

Has any anti-vac skeptic seen the chart for mumps or Rubella?

The vaccine for mumps was released in 1967, when 185,691 people suffered from mumps in the USA. In 1985, only 2,982 cases were reported, a drop of over 98%.

In 1964, 20,000 babies were born with severe birth defects due to Rubella. The vaccine was released in 1969 when Rubella was widespread, infecting 60,000 that year. After decades of vaccination, now fewer than 400 cases are reported each year in the USA.

Same goes for polio, measles, etc. Look at the charts. All a vaccine is is a dead or weak virus. Just like with exercise, we overcome and get stronger.

When Immunity Fails: The Whooping Cough Epidemic, a documentary co-reported by KPBS and inewsource, examined the worst epidemic in California in 60 years. One that made thousands sick and killed 10 babies.

The investigation led to several scientific studies which found that immunity faded sooner than expected after people were vaccinated.

Wooten said even with decreased immunity, the vaccine helps to lessen the severity of the illness.

Currently, children and teenagers are required to get a total of six shots to be considered up to date.

Of the 621 people who got whooping so far this year, 527 were up-to-date, 67 were not, and the immunization status was unknown for 27.

The vast majority, more than 400, were between 10 and 18 years old.

The number of positive cases so far this year has already surpassed total cases for last year, suggesting 2014 is on track to be as bad or worse than the 2010 epidemic.

1. Soldiers in the trenches in WW 1 did not have the luxury of having clean water to wash their hands.

2. 95% of Americans don't wash their hands properly. If so then rather than the 50 million that died during the spanish flue pandemic in the 1910's, 47.5. Mullion would have died.

3. Safe minds = quack quack, crank science

Two totally different elements? What about all the different man made compounded forms of mercury? Di-methylmercury has one of the most toxic profiles on earth.
http://www.dartmouth.edu/~toxmetal/about/trib...

Ethylmercury, the man made mercury found in vaccines is the exact form of mercury found in teething powders used in the 40's & 50's.
Considering this teething powder worked quite well, it was really popular. Of course killing all the nerves in a child's mouth was a tad extreme, Hey, the kid quit crying, and that was the point, right?
Funny thing though, 1 in 500 kids had a severe reaction to the compound. The palms of their hands & the soles of the feet turned bright red & the skin peeled off in sheets.
These children exhibited all the same symptoms of mercury poisoning. They were "mad as a hatter" (mercury salts used in the felting industry)
These individuals, well the ones who survived anyway, describe a world where touch was painful. Their hearing & other senses were affected, they exibited a gait refered to as "toe walking" it's the same gait seen in regressive autistics.
Their grandchildren have something in common too, they have an autism rate of 1 in 25.
Hum. The grandparents showed a distinct allergy to ethylmercury, now their grandkids who were given whopping doses of ethylmercury as infants via vaccines have a rate of autism higher than any other subset of individuals on the planet.
Then there was the drought & resulting famine in Iraq in 1971. The disaster was caused by grain imported from the US and Mexico that had been treated with the dangerous fungicide (ethylmercury) which was meant to be planted, not eaten. Largely due to problems understanding the foreign-language labels of the grain, rural Iraqis ate it with devastating effect. People who consumed the grain suffered a lack of sensation in the skin, along with red, blistering skin, bad physical coordination (toe walking), loss of sight, and even brain damage. It affected about 1 in 500. Hmmm, where have we seen this...never mind, just a coincidence, right?

If you were to actually follow the references cited by safeminds...follow them to sites like the Dartmouth Toxic Metals Research Superfund, you'd know just how un-quack safeminds is.

Or just get a degree in chemistry & toxicology, then work in the field of toxic metals study for 3 decades.

The people at safeminds, like you, have no idea of how to interpret scientific research. Hence the quack quack remark.

I don't need to be a physician to recognize quackery, just like I don't need a degree in chemistry to recognize the idiots that operate on conspiracy and voo doo, like you. Now go whip up some more conspiracy theories and make a few more tin foil hats.

Since most of the pharm companies are publicly traded, I'd like to know what families and what companies you are talking about. Can you be more specific?
