Vaccines


The web is full of nonsense and most of it is of no consequence whatsoever. Websites, Blogs and Forums are full of the rants of birthers, truthers, tenthers and every other variety of conspiracy theorist imaginable. They’re not important. They are incoherent, often incomprehensible, and irrelevant because they lack any sort of purpose or strategy. They have no impact on the lives of individuals or on society as a whole. There is one group however, who pose a real threat to society. The celebs, quacks and cranks who make up the anti-vaxxers are undermining the health of individuals, especially children. The last year or so has seen an alarming increase in the number of children suffering from Whooping Cough.

The deaths of children can be attributed to the activities of the anti-vaxxers.
