Quoting PrissyAnne:We also have better hygiene, access to clean drinking water, better food storage and preparation, etc. There is no way we can say that vaccines alone are responsible for the decline of these diseases.
Funny how correlation equals causation when defending vaccines and it is logical fallacy otherwise.
I have 5 children. They are all fully vaccinated. Not a single one of my children has ever had a severe negative reaction to any of the vaccines. Furthermore, none of my children have had one single disease for which they have been vaccinated for! On the flip-side, my cousin's crazy ex-wife has refused to have their son vaccinated at all!! Guess what! He almost died from whooping cough!! He was hospitalized for 2 weeks!!! Between my mom and her sister, they have 14 grandchildren. 13 of the 14 grandchildren are fully immunized. The only one to get sick, was the one I mentioned above! The rest are all healthy and for those who believe vaccines cause autism, not one of the grandchildren have autism! They are actually all very intelligent, get excellent grades, no ADD/ADHD etc!! To each their own though!
I was born pre vaccination. I had measles, mumps and chicken pox. I remember being terribly sick. My kids have never had any of those diseases, and one fo my kids has never even run a fever over 101-and he is 10!
I had indoor plumbing and a septic tank and well water. my kids have indoor plumbing a septic tank and well water.
Not sure how much different it is sanitation wise. Oh and I was born JUST as polio vaccinations were coming out.
As we all know polio is caused by oral fecal contamination-also known as baby pooping in any kind of diaper in the water-including a swim diaper. Not sure how we managed to stop that from happening...oh wait we haven't.
In the late 50's people wouldn't go to a pool or the beach for fear of polio.

Only those numbers don't correlate to when the different vaccines came out, it starts when knowledge of illnesses and how they spread started to take off.
correlation being the key word there.
you are right but you will never convince the anti vaxers. Also those saying we have clean water and better hygiene? What do you think it was like living in the 1800s when polio was rampant? People had clean water and hygiene then too. Middle class people HAD proper food as well. Your point about better hygiene is invalid. They year I was born(1964) many babies were born deaf due to their mom being exposed to rubella. It had absolutely NOTHING to do with hygiene and clean drinking water, obviously we had that.
