Comment: The following article contains a wealth of misinformation meant to frighten parents into taking risks with their children's health. In recent months, courts, governments and vaccine manufacturers have conceded that the MMR vaccine causes autism. Other studies have shown that vaccines have no benefit, and vaccinated children have 2 to 5 times MORE diseases than un-vaccinated children.
The number of California parents not vaccinating their kindergartners has doubled since 2007 (5 percent) to 11 percent in 2014.
Public health experts claim that the failure to vaccinate is the reason why measles have made a comeback in California after being eradicated.
California law says that kindergartners have to be vaccinated against "measles, whooping cough, polio, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, chicken pox, diphtheria and tetanus," notes The Los Angeles Times, but parents who object to immunizations based on their deeply-held, sincere, personal beliefs can get exemptions for their kids, which places those kids and other people's children in danger.
For decades, high vaccination numbers have prevented children from suffering diseases of the past, but the refusal of many parents to vaccinate is slowly moving California back to the Stone Age.
