  Where on this site was this image used?  What thread? The marker was created to record the life and death of those for whom it was made. If none of them actually died of diphtheria, then yeah, that is sloppy work and wrong, though not actually harmful to them.  If it were a marker for people actually known to die of diphtheria, then it is not at all horrible to remember them and also remember the horrible thing that killed them and how me must never let it come back to...
  You mean like here: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/science/47-of-global-measles-deaths-in-India/articleshow/12843053.cms So... basically they are doctoring the numbers for deaths but too dumb not to realize they need to change the numbers for reported cases too before putting them where they will often be seen together? The numbers do look strange, but a more likely explanation than making up deaths likes in the word "recorded."   How many cases of non-fatal...
  To all of it.  This thread is so strange.  Serenbat, I am curious about the claim that the dates on the marker are dates of the body being moved or recorded, not the year of death.  Is it possible this was a phone conversation and you may have misunderstood something?  Because that would be very strange, and I have never heard of that happening except in the rare case when the year of death was somehow not actually known.   Is there a site somewhere that talks about an...
 A case could be made that the two are different since something deserving of diagnosis was going on with Susan Boyle whether it was brain damage as she was told as a child or autism as she is now officially diagnosed with, whereas the point with William is the author does not believe he needs to be diagnosed with anything at all.  However, I don't think it is generally the same people who are holding up Susan Boyle as an example who are then saying that autism is...
 Sure, there are kids now being diagnosed with autism who would have been diagnosed with it back then too.  Then there are the kids like the last one with autism I met a few years ago (and I am not acquainted with many kids IRL with autism so freely admit that most of my knowledge comes from what I read in news sources and hear from people online) - she was around four and my kids played with her a few times at a mutual friends house before her mother mentioned something...
 Social support/disability support is better in general in Canada than in the US, though of course there is still a lot of room for improvement!  I do think more should be done for the victims of vaccine injury, but then I also believer more should be done for the victims of random diseases that leave them disabled.   If we were to stop using the MMR, what sort of compensation program exists for those who suffer permanent injury or death as a result of measles?   Herd...
 Yes, a third dose has been given in certain situations. I think it a third MMR may also be given to women who are found to not have rubella immunity on pre-conception bloodwork or after pregnancy for those who find out during pregnancy?  I'm not sure on that, but I don't think there is a rubella only vax for them, is there? But it's still not true that a third shot to the childhood schedule and a regular booster for adults were added to the US schedule in 2011!    Full...
  I read the article.  This is the part that was shocking to me:  I had no idea! I assumed that anyone who caught measles after vaccination could pass it on just as easily as someone who hadn't been vaccinated.  I never new they thought they couldn't.  And how in the world after a few decades of a second measles shot can this be the first time this has been recorded as happening?  I am certain it must have happened before, but perhaps generally when it has, there have been...
 Yeah, the only family I know with a child with fairly severe autism (that I know of) moved to my province due to services provided.  In their former province, they both worked, and the mom's paycheck pretty much came out to equal to what they were paying for services.  Here those services are mostly covered.  I don't know about costs in New Jersey, put as far as availability of services, googling for best places for autism services keeps turning up northern New Jersey...
  Yeah, I know it's not, just speaking my piece and all that.  And that is one reason I don't post in the vaccine support only threads much - if I make a mistake, and you notice it, I appreciate you posting to tell me.  If you disagree with me on something more complex than an easy to point to mixtake, I still generally appreciate hearing it, because even if I still believe I'm right, it can make me look at things a bit differently, whether that is causing doubts or a...
