Anti-vaxers Trump, RFK Jr. threaten public health

 

  Boy with measles.

Boy with measles.

From Robert Whitcomb's "Digital Diary,'' in GoLocal24.com

Science-free lies by anti-vaccine campaigners have led to an increase in measles epidemics. Among the most notable ones now are in Minnesota, Italy and Rumania. The refusal of some parents to vaccinate their children is putting the public at risk. Science ignoramuses such as Donald Trump and the emotionally disturbed crank Robert F. Kennedy Jr., with their idiotic negative remarks about vaccines, are making things worse.  No, vaccines don't cause autism.

In some rare cases measles can cause permanent physical damage or even kill.
