Response 1: Vaccine/Autism Controversy
In the article from Discover Magazine, Mooney presents the history of the controversy regarding vaccines and
autism. He presents research disputing vaccines as the cause of autism as well as continual concern regarding
vaccines. After reading the article, consider the following questions:
What arguments do you agree or disagree with on either side? Discuss at least two.
What is your overall view on vaccines? Should they be taken? Why or why not?
my personal point of view: I appreciate vaccines. when there is a decrease in vaccines, there is a increase in disease. I agree with this statement because thousands of years ago when there weren’t many, if any, vaccines available the life expectancy was significantly shorter. Therefore, vaccines serve a purpose of keeping people disease free and people are living longer and healthier lives. Although they are not always 100% effective, people can still benefit from getting a vaccine to stop the spread a deadly illness.
