I think most people would just sell their houses and move
And this is exactly why bullying works in schools but not so much in the real world. People are unwilling to pull their kid out of the most convenient school, and schools don't want to lose students because schools are paid based on attendance.
But having empty houses is bad for the whole neighborhood, so wacko-threats-neighbor is forced to cut it out or leave.
(Meat fed a natural-to-them diet does have distinct flavors, though.)
There are babies who are too young to be vaccinated
Am I the only one that sees the problem, then, is that babies are being so exposed to carriers of the illnesses?
Keep the baby at home for the first few weeks/months of life, and breastfeed (which means he'll be immune to what mom is immune to for awhile).
(And yes, I'm aware that our current society prevents that a lot of the time. The problem is a society that prevents this, not the lack of vaccinated babies.)
And let's think about the fact that, the majority of the time, babies too young to get vaccinated are getting illnesses where the vaccines don't last for life. For example, an adult with whooping cough works at their daycare. So why aren't we giving older kids/adults the vaccines instead of the babies?
On a side note, though cellphone usage has gone up in the past 10 years, I would think the amount that teenage girls keep the phones up to their heads has gone way down (as they now focus on texting and online messaging rather than talking). It would be interesting to see if brain tumor rates in teenage girls has changed in relation to this.
Even though it is ridiculous that other first-world countries pay $20 for 150mbps and I pay $72 for 25mbps from Comcast, I would pay more to actually guarantee I could use that 25mbps.
They may have even been taking the same birth control or anti-depressants. Was your wife in a position to find out that information?
Yet the anti-vax movement continues to believe in the connection regardless.
No they don't. The majority of the anti-vax movement is not anti-vax because of autism anymore. They are anti-vax because of other things - things vaccines actually do cause.
The autism thing has now become an excuse by the anti-anti-vax movement. "Don't listen to those bozos, they still think vaccines cause autism!" *puts fingers in ears* "Lalalala, I can't hear you because you're stupid. Come on everybody, do it!"
