One of my hardcore antivaxx Facebook acquaintances posted an utter bullshit article from a website called "Return to now [dot] net," headlined "Measles virus wipes out golf-ball-sized cancer tumor in 36 hours." (She and her friends have made "measles cures cancer so don't vaccinate against it" claims before, BTW.)

So I posted this comment on her Facebook feed in response: "Wow! If this guy actually discovered a safe way to destroy cancer cells that quickly, I'm sure a Nobel prize will be imminent! I can't wait to see these results reproduced in peer-reviewed medical journals."

Wait! I thought Essential Oils® cured cancer. (Or was that homeopathy? Or acupuncture? Crystals?)

Anti-vaxxers give me a dilemma, because herd immunity is important, but I do like the idea of stupid people doing things that prevent their DNA from propagating. So here's a deal:

You still have to get vaccinated, as do your kids, but...

If you object to vaccinations you get free homeopathic treatment for all non-contagious illnesses that you suffer. The state will pay to align your chakras, heal you with crystals, etc. Have colon cancer? Here are some state-funded herbs. Heart disease? Try this homeopathic stuff!

Additionally, you get unlimited free birth control if you register as a vaccine objector. Unlimited. We'll even do the implantable stuff that lasts a long time, or a vasectomy or tubal ligation if you prefer.

And if you act now, you get an automatic exemption from laws requiring motorcycle helmets, seat belts, etc. You also get a free wilderness expedition where you will be encouraged to go find and cuddle cute baby animals, like mountain lion kittens, wolf pups, and bear cubs.

I like it. I can get behind that.

I'd go more "you get to swim with the sharks." (As in USS Indianapolis.)

Ohio teen gets himself vaccinated after he comes of age
Ethan Lindenberger from Ohio asked social media site Reddit if he could have vaccines without parental consent.

His mother would not give her permission, he wrote in the post, which had thousands of reactions.

He learned he had to wait until he was 18 - which he did, and has now had five vaccinations so far.

However, he told the BBC his mother still does not agree with his choice, and also apologised for the way he described her online.
Referring to the vaccinations, he said he had never wanted to do anything behind his mother's back, but had become convinced that it was the best choice for him and those around him.

"If I get whooping cough I may be able to handle it because I'm older and I have a good immune system, but who's to say I don't cough on my two-year-old sister?" he asked.

"That's an extremely scary thought."
Also an extremely scary thought: age of consent laws that prohibit sensible people from seeking common medical treatments without their parents approval.

I’m including this here because it sorta fits. Just keep in mind, this dude has more influence over the president than basically anyone not in his family.

Tetanus or cholera are two of the nastiest ways to go.

Though Trump had a reputation as a germaphobe (not sure how true that is, after the past few years)

I think I posted this before, but here's the debunk.
Cancer Research UK wrote:Media outlets, both traditional and social, are awash with the news that researchers in the US have apparently cured cancer with the measles virus – for example, the Washington Post, Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, Daily Telegraph and (with a much more measured headline) Reuters.

But while the story is dramatic – a 49-year old US woman’s myeloma blood cancer seems to have completely disappeared following treatment – the actual science is a lot more complex than simply injecting her with an armful of measles. A number of the stories implied that the woman had been treated with an extremely high dose of the regular measles vaccine, but we need to be absolutely clear here:

This treatment did not involve a standard measles vaccine or virus – the researchers used a genetically modified virus, and there’s no evidence that the regular measles or MMR jab can cure, prevent or cause any type of cancer.
