Anti-vaxxer conspiracies have continued to spread, and because of their beliefs - so have the measles. Oregon and Washington are among eighteen states that allow families to opt out of vaccines for viral diseases based on philosophical beliefs, which is why these areas have been the most recent hotbed for the measles outbreak. More than 50 people have been infected across Southwest Washington state and Northwest Oregon - and everyone is fed up with the anti-vaccination science deniers.

"It's an outbreak because generally, the way we define an outbreak is when you have more observed cases than expected cases. And generally with measles, the expected number is zero," Dr. Alan Melnick with Clark County Public Health told KOIN6 TV in Portland, Oregon, last week. "You know, we have a very effective vaccine for measles. Two shots are 97 percent effective. We really shouldn't be seeing measles." Scroll down below to read some of the best comebacks to anti-vaxxers on the internet and don't forget to upvote your favs! If you have your own funny comeback prepared - share it with us in the comment section!

Many anti-vaxxers use the possibility of having an autistic child as one of their debate points - but this autistic person had a counterpoint.

This one I fully concure with. I'm autistic to and not an idiot. During my life I've been headhunted by companies, worked around the world, studied years at university, experienced things few have, been in love , had my heart broken, etc. Yet theese idiots seem to think that I would be better of dead than live my life.

That's most likely the saddest post that I readed lately. In some countries, parents are fighting to vaccinate their children, while we do NOT want to vaccinate them because of some conspiracy theories. That's just plain stupid.

No, they are saying these diseases were the cause of death in middle ages. Actually people were fit as horses and all died of old age (99-120 years old). Diseases in middle ages is a myth. Do not believe anything else. Aliens told me that when they abducted me and they also showed me both sides of the earth.

What isn't brought up is that such tribes had (and still have) high infant mortality rates... even before any interaction with other cultures. Often from easily treatable things such as diarrhea.

The better part is that even in difficult access parts of Amazonia, people are vaccinated. At least here in Brazik they are, except for a few tribes. The distribution system has yet to improve a lot. So yeah! They're doing fine' but they HAVE been vaccinated

Tribes in the amazon are not dying from those diseases because they weren’t EXPOSED to those diseases. There are many natives tribes that have not fallen ill to certain things because they haven’t had contact with the people that would carry them. It’s the result of reclusive existence. If you suddenly showed up to one of those tribes with a minor cold they would drop dead (well, not literally) because the bacteria they’re exposed to is completely unknown by their immune systems. Also, they may not have the antibiotics to help fight the bacteria as the immune system sort of “memorizes it” for the body to fight that bacteria better if exposed to it again. And that process of memorizing the illness to fight it better in the future is the basis of how vaccines work in the first place.

It's called "thinking in advance", people. Investing in something so your grand-grand-grand...kids can pick up the fruits of your investment. I only wonder how they made sure their future kin will 1) survive the sickness and 2) become a person who would earn from vaccines

Christine M Quigley

And if those Amazon tribes were exposed to us with our germs and viruses, they would probably die since they don't have immunity. Read your history- what happened to the American Indians, the Mayans,etc.

The average lfespan of Americans has declined for the tird straight year and is expected to tdo the same this year. One would think vaxxines would be helping us live longer lives. Thay are not, especially since the victims of Autism - which is amost always noticed by the parents within a few days of their child getting vaxxed - greatly shortens lives.

The life span of Americans is decreasing because the percentage of overweight individuals in America is increasing. People are dying from common comorbidities of obesity such as heart failure at younger ages due to increased weight and decreased activity. It has nothing to do with vaccines. Don’t just make up your own cause for a result Kelley, that’s not how you do proper research. Not that anyone expects your to know how science works.
