He's not playing doctor. Too bad doctors don't act like doctors. All they are are glorified Pharmacists who push product for Pharma.

I am the last person to defend doctors, but this is just too stupid. Anti-vaccine nuts are against medical science, not doctors. Vaccines work, and anyone who doesn't get vaccines puts all they come into contact with at risk. Now while I agree silly ones like the flu should be voluntary, there are other ways of dealing with it if you're healthy enough that won't put others at risk, certain incurable diseases should be mandated.

Also no, they do not cause autism. Do some research.

Make no mistake. Trumps 'claims' is politically-based only, with nothing to back up his claims.

I've done more research than you obviously. Issue isn't about vaccines working, but thats the duh response. The issue IS do vaccines cause autism. Well vaccine DO cause seizures, which many autistic sufferers have. Vaccine cause neurological problems like narcolepsy. Anorexia is a recognized side effect of several vaccines. Death is the most serious, and if vaccines can cause death and the other serious conditions, they can cause autism. Courts have awarded parents of vaccine injured children billions of dollars through the Vaccine injury compensation program and Vaccine injury court in the USA. I guess you are so knowledgeable you simply forgot that vaccines cause thousands of injuries, a phenomenon that occurs worldwide and involves millions of affected children. How bout YOU do sme research?

Which vaccines is recognized as causing anorexia?? Narcolepsy and the H1N1 vaccine was shown (March 2012) to be were positive for a genotype linked to narcolepsy. They were genetically predisposed kids.

Many people have seizure disorders and do not have autism. So linking the 2 means nothing when there is no actual link. As for the vaccine courts, who doesn't know vaccines carry risks? No one yet has been awarded for autism.

Do a search. Vaccines and anorexia. Funny how you downplay vaccine injury and compensation as if its nothing. I guess you're obliviou to pain and suffering. Like a Sociopath.
