Nobody wants to face the public wrath of the internet but anti-vaxxers experience this daily as people continue to troll them, however, you know what's even worse than getting challenged by someone you don't know online - someone online with a medical degree. That's right according to data analysis from CNN measles cases in the United States have surpassed the highest number on record since the disease was declared eliminated nationwide in 2000.

Doctors are employing all strategies to fight the disease from using electronic medical records to identify unvaccinated patients living in outbreak zones to refusing to accept patients who haven't been vaccinated - and now they have taken the fight to Twitter. Sure some of these savage tweets are funny, but believe it or not, fighting misinformation on the internet is vitally important, even when it's done in a simple tweet. Scroll down below to read some anti-vaxxers get destroyed by doctors and don't forget to upvote your favs!

That's the kind of language that everyone should use to these incredible blockheads that refuse to have their offspring vaccinated.

Measles became a nationally notifiable disease in the United States in 1912, meaning that health care providers and laboratories were required to report diagnosed cases. During the first decade of reporting, an average of about 6,000 measles-related deaths were reported annually.

In the 1950s, researchers found a way to isolate the measles virus in a patient's blood, and in the 1960s, they were successful in transforming the isolated virus into a vaccine. The vaccine was licensed and became part of the measles vaccination program, introduced in 1963.

Before the introduction of the measles vaccination program, according to the CDC, there was an estimated 3 to 4 million people getting infected with the disease yearly nationwide. Following this program the numbers of cases and deals from measles substantially dropped. In 1994 there were 963 reported cases, which fell to 508 cases in 1996.

This is actually a very good strategy. Just make sure that anti rub-patients also get a treatment with rotting swedish fish, also internally.

Jump forward to 2000, when the disease was declared eliminated in the U.S and there were only 86 reported cases. This meant there had been no continuous transmission of the disease for over 12 months. These numbers only continued to plummet until a resurgence in 2014 where the country experienced 23 separate outbreaks, which occurred primarily among the unvaccinated Amish community.

How about putting the poisonous element Sodium in our children, very deadly and should be outlawed. In fact Chlorine is outlawed as a chemical weapon (think Phosgene and Sarin Gas attacks) by the Geneva Convention. That deadly element should be NO WHERE NEAR our kids. However Sodium Chloride aka NaCl aka TABLE SALT, made from 2 deadly poisons is necessary for human survival. have a great day everyone.

Many children are diagnosed as toddlers, because it's often found due to developmental delay. That's the same time kids are getting lots of vaccines, so the anti-vaxxers blame the shots..

Also consider that the compounds listed above are found in everyday food..so unless you plan on not ever eating again..you've already consumed this. The other thing that is a cause of so many ailments in children is that, when a woman is pregnant, half the toxins in her body gets downloaded to the developing embyro. Your children already have toxins in them when they are born....

Blue Cicada

I think they are an artifact of the original posting. The software used in the original post automatically broke up words and inserted the hyphens. When the text was copied and pasted into a another for of social media, using a different software, the new software did not recognize the hyphens as being unnecessary.

Good argument, but you blew it with the last statement. Now they can just use your last sentence as another reason to not let "alcoholic scientists" make something in a lab that will then be injected into their kid's arm. And. . . admitting to being enraged? That just makes you a "mad alcoholic scientist" that makes something in a lab that will be injected into their kid's arm. Don't drink and mix drugs/vaccines.

why are there so many dashes in that post? xD Side note, honestly we don't realize we ingest all sorts of chemicals from completely natural things every day. Are those chemicals harmful? well too much water can kill you. But don't stop drinking water. Unfortunately biology and chemistry are much more complicated than many people realize.

so true! Chemicals are in everyday things. It's just the power and the quantity. For example, who hasn't accidentally swallowed a cherry pit before? Those contain Cyanide! Even if you haven't, cyanide is also in Almonds. Brazil nuts? 1000x more radioactive than any other food. And yet, all these items aren't actually fatal.

Ok Look, I'm not anti-vex, in fact, I'm completely pro but that response is as stupid as the post he was responding to. Are you seriously comparing antivexxing with veganism?!

Aria Whitaker

How is that post "as stupid as the post he was responding to"? He just laid out, in detail, the actual vaccine components and what they do. And he clearly was not "comparing anti-VAXXers to veganism", silly. He was saying that preachy Vegans are annoying, but only harm themselves, however preachy anti-vaxxers are both annoying AND harm others. It was not a "comparison", and the post was far from "stupid". Perhaps YOU just had a hard time understanding it...everyone else seemed to just fine.

In 2018 the U.S saw 17 separate outbreaks and the numbers continue to climb. According to the CDC, the disease was largely imported and spread among unvaccinated pockets: "Eighty-two people brought measles to the U.S. from other countries in 2018. This is the greatest number of imported cases since measles was eliminated from the U.S. in 2000."

Above explanation by Eve Switzer pretty much describes what anti-vaxxers do on the internet and in real life, and it also describes why they are sometimes succesful. "Health freedom" sounds so much better than being "pro desease" and "quackery".
