    The MMR vaccine has just been developed by Doctor/Scientist Maurice R. Hilleman. The MMR vaccine is made out of several scientific elements and chemicals such as sodium phosphate and glutamate. However some of the Earth’s resources that was used to make the MMR vaccine is sorbitol and sucrose. Scientists need to consider if it will all work together and need to do many tests and experiments on the elements individually and together. They need to know all about the Earth’s element whether or not it has just been discovered or was discovered previously. They also need to know if a vast majority of humans are allergic or if it will harm a human in any way, especially if it is being inserted into our bodies. The MMR vaccination is used to have…

    The risks of the MMR vaccine (along with other vaccinations) are almost nothing compared to the benefits. Vaccines are a weakened version of a disease which are meant to create an immune system response so that your body can be ready for future encounters with the disease. Sometimes the immune system won’t provide the correct response, so the person that was vaccinated won’t be protected. But most vaccines have a high effectiveness (e.g. 2 MMR vaccine shots have a 99.7% effectiveness). How safe…

    • 2 Pages

Woolwine believes that the bulk of evidence shows that the Center for Disease Control didn’t misrepresent its findings, that it didn’t commit fraud and that none of the claims discussed that vaccines cause autism are supported. I too am not sure if Hooker was intentionally fraudulent in his paper or simply…

    would develop autism, a spectrum of varying mental and physical conditions. This way of thought is completely false. Vaccinations do not cause autism.

The proponents and the opponents of the modern vaccine debate both use a wide variety of rhetoric techniques, and it is not uncommon to read two articles written with different opinions but identical in their…
