12-Year-Old Scientist Reveals Evidence Linking Vaccines To Autism

Despite an overwhelming mountain of research to the contrary, anti-vaccine advocates still maintain that vaccines can cause autism. A documentary called Vaxxed released last month also makes this case by linking the condition with the MMR vaccine. Whether or not there’s any truth in these claims, we have no idea. All we know is that vaccines have saved millions of lives around the globe and stopped the spread of such diseases as polio and smallpox. Still, we’re not scientists. But Marco Arturo, a 12-year-old from Mexico is, so we’re going to listen to him.

P.S.: if the video doesn’t play, use this link.

People.... watch the flippin' video. It's a bait and switch to reel in the anti-vaxxers. If you are a reasonable human being, who understands that the science has completely debunked the myth that vaccines are linked to autism, then watch this video. You will be pleasantly surprised. It's only 2 minutes. Just watch it all the way through. I promise, your ire will be soothed.

I love when I read that the doctor and PhD obviously didn't watch the video but made a comment.

Oh my God people! Of course he's not a scientist. The whole point of the video is to point out the ridiculousness of the whole issue.
