Dear Parents, You Are Being Lied To | IFLScience

In light of recent outbreaks of measles and other vaccine preventable illnesses, and the refusal of anti-vaccination advocates to acknowledge the problem, I thought it was past time for this post.Dear parents,You are being lied to. The people who claim to be acting in the best interests of your children are putting their health and even lives at risk.They say that measles isn’t a deadly disease.But it is.They say that chickenpox isn’t that big of a deal.But it can be.They say that the flu isn’t dangerous.But it is.They say that whooping cough isn’t so bad for kids to get.But it is.They say that vaccines aren’t that effective at preventing disease.But 3 million children’s lives are saved every year by vaccination, and 2 million die every year from vaccine-preventable illnesses.They say that “natural infection” is better than vaccination.But they’re wrong.They say that vaccines haven’t been rigorously tested for safety.But vaccines are subjected to a higher level of scrutiny than any other medicine. For example, this study tested the safety and effectiveness of the pneumococcal vaccine in more than 37,868 children.
