Anti-vaxxers exposed: Hidden camera investigation (Marketplace)

Anti-vaxxers exposed: Hidden camera investigation (Marketplace)


[♪♪♪] [Asha] There we are.
Right there. Yeah. Vaccines are destroying
the lives of countless children. [Asha] We’re tracking
down the leaders of a movement. Vaccines cause autism. [Asha] Pushing fear. We do not want our
children experimented upon. [Asha] And misinformation. We’re in Washington D.C. And we’re waiting outside a
big VIP event tonight with the world’s biggest
anti-vax leaders. Rolling. [Asha] They don’t
trust mainstream media. So we’re sending producers in
with hidden cameras posing as activists to expose the
movement’s inner workings. We’re going to get to the real
heart of this and why they push this anti-vax message. We must not allow forced
injections into the human body. [Asha] The movement’s
leaders are hard to miss. We spot three of the biggest,
Robert F Kennedy Jr, JFK’s nephew, and head of a non-profit that funded anti-vax ads
like this. Andrew Wakefield, the disgraced
physician whose bogus study famously linked
vaccines to autism. Del Bigtree, a controversial
filmmaker, speaker and host. He’s spent much of his
career defending Wakefield. He gave up on saving his
own ass and his own career to save children. [Asha] And they’re
treated like rock stars. [Asha] Conversations
are flowing. There are even
anti-vaxers from Canada. [Asha] Other activists,
quick to share their strategies. [Asha] Secret because
openly anti-vax groups could get flagged
on social media. So, they use crafty names. [♪♪♪] [Asha] Back in Canada… So we’re just outside Ottawa
and we’re about to meet two moms who are sisters and they have
a really unique story to tell about being vaccine hesitant. This one is someone else’s. [Asha] Meggan is
a mother of three. Okay, everybody, we
need to wash some hands. [Asha] Tara, a mother of ten. They know all too well how
convincing anti-vax messaging can be. It was really compelling
headlines like “my child was “never the same again”. Lots of regression,
lots of death. Lots of babies dying. That kind of thing is
really, really scary. [Asha] When they see posts
like this, Meggan and Tara begin to doubt. I didn’t want them to be the
tiny percentage to be injured by a vaccine. I just kind of froze in fear
and didn’t make any decision at all. [Asha] But when they do
more digging, they have trouble verifying the claims. I thought there was this
wealth of well-documented, well-referenced, like,
incontrovertible evidence that all the claims that
vaccines are bad for you. All this smoke,
where’s the fire? I was pissed. [Asha] They finally
decide to vaccinate. But it’s too late. We had made the decision to
vaccinate them, and the reason that we didn’t make the
appointment is because they were coughing. And they were sick. [Asha] And it was
the whooping cough. It was whooping cough. [Asha] Thousands of children
died every year before the vaccine existed. And kids who get it
today can still die from it. These are Tara’s kids, all infected. Meggan’s three unvaccinated
kids end up sick, too. They’re put into quarantine. [Infant hacking] My youngest was a year old. And he was born premature. So, had that happened
a year earlier, he could have died. [Infant hacking] I cannot even explain the
self-recrimination and the guilt and the fear. I was like, I did that. We’re vulnerable to
misinformation because we’re so– we so dearly
want to do the right thing. [Asha] The kind of messaging
Tara and Meggan fell for is exactly what we’re hearing
at this anti-vax rally in Washington. It’s the most significant
medical issue in society today, is the injury from vaccinations. This is a war
for our children. This a war for their minds,
for their bodies. [Asha] With many making false claims about
the harm vaccines can cause. I know that it can cause
allergies, auto-immune issues. There’s spectrum autisms. Eczema, you know, seizures. These are things that are
affecting children. There’s no evidence to
support any of the concerns. [Asha] Timothy Caulfield,
public health expert and author of a book debunking
vaccine myths. And not only– This isn’t even speculative.
This is what the science says. [Asha] Let’s go
through some of the claims. -Allergies?
-No evidence to support it. -Auto-immune disease.
-No evidence. [Asha] What about seizures? There are rare risks
where kids do have seizures. You have to remember
that kids can get that kind of seizure from a
variety of ailments. [Asha] Fact, side
effects are very rare. For every million vaccinations,
only one to two severe allergic reactions. Despite these stats, nearly
half of Canadians have concerns about vaccine safety. And according to the World
Health Organization, that’s known as “vaccine hesitancy”,
a top global health threat. You have, on the one side,
the hardcore anti-vaxers. Then you have the
vaccination hesitant. These are people that are–
are uncertain about whether they should get their
kids vaccinated. And often these are just people
who are trying to do what’s best for their kids. Why do you think
vaccine hesitancy is so common? I think it’s common because
unfortunately the anti-vax messaging is working. [Asha] Several studies,
including this one that had hundreds of thousands of
kids, showed no link between the measles, mumps and rubella
vaccine, known as MMR, and autism. Yet it’s the biggest
myth that persists. And it can be traced back
to this study, with only 12 children. The study linking
MMR and autism is a sham? It is a sham,
and it’s been debunked. It was shown to be
completely fraudulent. [Asha] Yet Wakefield,
Kennedy Jr and Bigtree still push this lie. And it’s led to
outbreaks around the world. In Samoa, authorities recently
arrested an anti-vaxer for spreading misinformation
after a measles epidemic. More than 80 people died,
almost all of them children. It’s caused a
huge amount of harm. We’ve seen these outbreaks happen all over
the world, right? And it’s largely, not entirely,
but largely because of the spread of misinformation. [Asha] Back on hidden camera,
we want to learn more about their tactics, the business
behind their message. [Asha] We find out Bigtree
and Wakefield charge thousands of dollars to speak at events. And they’ve raised millions
through non-profits to fund their cause. [Asha] Others have more
creative ways of fundraising. This is James Lyons-Weiler. He runs a science-based
non-profit. He’s says he’s not an activist
even though he holds views like this. Vaccines can and DO
cause autism in some people. [Asha] How does
he raise his money? [Asha] He wants to be seen
as a scientist, so he proposes a workaround. [Asha] We’re told
for an event with 400 people it’ll cost $10,000. They must be
aware of the science. And this is a way of creating
celebrity, this is a way of creating demand, this is
a way of making a living. [Asha] James tells us
later over email that it’s not unexpected he gets
paid for his services. He says hosting an
event comes with costs. But in Washington, he offers
one piece of advice for free. [Asha] What’s going on? Challenge mandatory vaccination
policies, but they call it medical freedom. It’s so cynical. I didn’t expect them
to be so explicit about it. They have a very
particular, you know, agenda. I think part of it
is creating fear. How does hearing these claims
over and over again affect our decision making? Just being exposed to this
information makes it seem more believable and it invites a
little bit of doubt, which creates hesitancy. [♪♪♪] [Asha] We’re putting that
to the test… ..with a social experiment
showing how easily misinformation influences
the decisions we make. [Asha] Hi, everyone. I’m Asha Tomlinson
with CBC Marketplace. [Asha voice-over] This group
thinks they’re here for a forum about fake news. We want you to feel okay
in front of the cameras. So, what we’re gonna do
is a few warmup exercises. [Asha voice-over] But what
they don’t know, these warm up exercises
are really a series of tests created
with the help of our experts. Timothy Caulfield and Olivier
Drouin, a paediatrician who has a background in
behavioural science. I think it’s
going to be fascinating. [Asha] They’re in another
room watching and analyzing everything live. Welcome to
the fake news forum. [♪♪♪] [Asha] This is your Marketplace. Vaccine fears are growing. The anti-vax
message is working. [♪♪♪] We want to show you why it’s so
easy to fall for fake news about vaccine dangers. Welcome to the
fake news forum. [Asha voice-over] We’ve brought
in eight media savvy people. Two of them happen to
have doubts about vaccines. Parents like Elka. What if I take the vaccination
and something happens to me? [Asha voice-over] And Valerie. She’s heard all sorts
of anti-vax claims. Robert Kennedy Jr
has a very compelling video. It is the most potent
neurotoxin known to man that is not radioactive. [Asha] They’re here
for what they think is a forum on fake news. But they’re actually part of
a social experiment that our experts are secretly watching. [Asha] Our first experiment,
something called “identifiable victim bias”. Anti-vaxers will often focus
on one powerful story about a child who they say was
harmed by a vaccine. I think almost everyone
knows someone that has had a kid with an adverse reaction. I personally have not
experienced that with my kids but I know people that have. You know, most people come with
some question or worries about vaccination, they always start with, like, the story
of somebody. [Asha voice-over] To test that,
we present the group with two fictional causes with two
very different stories. And we give them
a pouch of money. There are one of two causes
that you can donate $5 to. This is Milo the dog. [forum member] Awwww. His owner was
attacked by another dog. And Milo courageously jumped
in, protected his owner, but suffered very serious injuries. The surgery is gonna
cost upwards of $1,500. [Asha voice-over] Let’s see how
this next story compares. This is the
Toronto Dog Society. Now, they help stray dogs
and troubled dogs find shelter. [Asha voice-over] This cause
helps many more dogs, not just one. But it’s harder to relate to. The costs are growing
and they just can’t keep up. [Asha voice-over] Remember,
people tend to be drawn to someone’s story
over bigger causes. Here we go.
Here we go. She went for
the Dog Society. -I would have guessed.
-Yeah! [Asha] Doesn’t work for Elka. Next up? Now this guy, shelter. -Oooohhh!
-Oooohhh! [Asha] Results of
our first bias test? 50% voted for Milo the dog. With something like
vaccines, you really only need 20, 30 per cent to be swayed
by this information to create a serious problem. [Asha] Now we’re testing for
something called omission bias. Our tendency to do nothing
when faced with tough choices. Parents won’t vaccinate
because they don’t want to be responsible for
harming their child. It’s so dangerous
to vaccinate. We’re just not–
not going to do it. [Asha] To test this bias,
we pull them aside and give them a choice. We’ll take $50 from one person,
or they can choose to take $40 from someone else. Choosing does less harm. But the bias suggests most
people will do nothing and let us take $50 from someone else. If you just let it happen,
then it feels more natural and so people feel less responsible. [Asha voice-over] And so
it begins. What will Ahmed do? I can do that. Oh, okay.
So, he’s taking it on himself. [Asha] Is that the
case for the others? Let’s see what Valerie does. -She’s uncertain.
-Yeah. I can’t do that.
I can’t do that. She said “I cannot do that,
I cannot pick one person”. Classic. She doesn’t want
to take the action. [Asha] Turns out most of the
people don’t want to take the money, they let us do it. You decide. Holy cow. This is a really strong
example of the omission bias. [Asha] Now we’re
testing for probability neglect. You have far greater risk of
getting a brain infection from the measles than suffering
a serious side effect from the vaccine. But those odds mean
nothing when you’re afraid. It was terrifying. “Oh, my gosh, I hope they’re
not the, you know, one in a “gazillion who is gonna
have some horrific reaction.” [Asha] To test this we need a
terrifying scenario our guests will want to avoid. Here we go. [all] Three, two, one. Voila. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no. [Asha] The spider represents
every parent’s nightmare that your child will be
harmed by a vaccine. [Asha] So, gang, if
we draw a red ball it means you have
to hold the spider. Uh-oh. Red ball equals spider. Some people are not
excited about red balls! [Asha voice-over ] The only way
to avoid drawing the red ball is to pay up. But don’t you need to find
out what your chances are before giving away your money? We see quickly our
guests never ask. Those that are afraid, they haven’t asked
about what was the probability. -They just want to avoid it.
-Yeah. [Asha voice-over]
What’s Sharmon going to do? We can take out the
red balls for you if you give us some money. She’s pondering. Which means you’re safe. All right. -We don’t have to draw.
-Thank you! She looks pretty
pleased with the result, right?! Yeah, yeah, yeah. [Asha voice-over] Those that are
terrified pay up and never ask their odds. Ready? [Nervous laughter]
Yeah! -Red ball.
-Okay! [Asha voice-over] Then
there’s Martin. The test doesn’t work on
him ’cause he loves spiders. What a little princess. [Asha] Time for the big reveal. Well, there’s more
than meets the eye to this fake news forum. Okay, come on out, guys. [Laughter, applause] [Asha] This has been
a CBC experiment. Our experts have been watching
this whole time and analyzing your decisions. Oh, great. [Laughter] We’re working on a story
about vaccinations and the
anti-vaccination messaging. I think there’s a lot of
those different hidden forces that we don’t necessarily think
about or realize that comes into play when we make decisions. It’s actually very hard to
combat cognitive biases, even when you’re aware of them. [Asha] So how have these
experiments impacted our guests? I did not expect to
be so manipulated today. So it was extremely
enlightening to me that I’ve got to step it up a notch
and be more critical. [Asha voice-over] What
about Elka? Remember she had real
concerns about vaccine safety. I’m very glad that I was a part
of it and definitely I’m going to take the shots now. [Asha voice-over ] Elka decides
to start vaccinating. I will make sure my
kids also take it, and whoever doesn’t want to, I’ll try to
motivate like I got motivated. So, yes, right away,
I’m going to the clinic. [Asha] This is
your Marketplace. [Asha] We’ve gone
undercover with the world’s biggest anti-vaxers. Now we’re waiting
outside a VIP event. We’re hoping to confront
one of the movement’s leaders. As the event ends… [Asha] Hi. I’m with CBC Television
in Canada. We catch up with Del Bigtree. [Asha] You’re considered
a leader in this movement. Why do you
believe so much in it? Every day, someone recognizes
“my child’s injured” or “my cousin “I watched a child
regress into autism.” [Asha voice-over]
Recognize that? Identifiable victim bias. [Asha] With all due respect,
there are multiple studies. with hundreds of thousands
of subjects. -Name one.
-There was one in 2016 and one in 2019.
-That said what? Hundreds of thousands
of subjects that said there’s no link between
the MMR vaccine and autism. -The Denmark study.
-Are they untrue? Ah, it’s bad science. Most of it is being funded by
people who make money off of selling vaccines. [Asha voice-over] Not true. Many patents for childhood
vaccines have expired and are not a big money maker
for drug companies. Here’s the point. I want my children
to get the measles. The people who get
the measles will have a life-long immunity for life. [Asha voice-over] But what about
the 140,000 people who died of measles in 2018? And so they should
ignore the measles outbreak? Absolutely. [Asha] And it is due
to a drop in vaccinations. That’s not true. [Asha] Come on. I just want you speak to
parents who are vaccine hesitant who are really worried– -Okay.
-about misinformation. Yes. And what do you say
to them? Do your own research. And if they do their research
and they’re still not sure? Here’s what I would say,
don’t do anything you’re not sure about. [Asha voice-over] Hear that? He’s saying do nothing. That’s omission bias. [♪♪♪] These parents did that and
they learned the hard way. [♪♪♪] My advice to vaccine
hesitant parents would be I completely understand
how you feel. Get informed about the
real risks of these actual preventable diseases
and not just get scared into a bunch of misinformation.

  • Here are some of the most pervasive concerns Canadians brought to Marketplace, and why experts say we shouldn't worry about them: https://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/blog/top-vaccine-concerns-and-why-we-shouldnt-worry-about-them ^bb

  • I just want to point out that those parents with all those kids (seriously, that one woman has 10 children of her own?!) being shown in this news article is another form of 'Identifiable Victim Bias'. Perhaps they should have pointed out that the inclusion of those people in this report indirectly made use of the same kinds of techniques, but whether they did or not, anti-vaxxers will probably use it as ammunition to call this report into question. 'Both sides do it!' is a pretty common cry, especially in politics…

  • What if there's something deeper? Let's say these guys know the truth, but their motive is actually population control…

  • What if there's something deeper? Let's say these guys know the truth, but their motive is actually population control…

  • I see you're deleting comments from people who disagree with you. Must be feeling really scared of the truth. Thanks for the video….it reminded me exactly why I don't pay attention to main stream media. I hope you're proud of the propaganda you put out. Maybe try some real investigative journalism next time instead of just showing one side 🤷‍♀️

  • I wish Anti-Vaxxers would all move to an island somewhere and isolate themselves. Also with all the flat earthers. And Trump supporters (redundant I know). World would be a much better place then.

  • "Fact, side effects are very rare. For every million vaccinations, only 1 to 2 severe allergic reactions."
    Talk to ER triage nurses. They'll get a handful of kids administered of a miriad of reasons, all within a few hours of a school vaccination program.
    YET THESE CASES DON'T GET RECORDED AS SIDE-EFFECTS TO THE VACCINES.

    Vaccines work, vaccines save lives, but the statistics are unreliable on the adverse reactions, because a lot of information doesn't get collected.
    Anecdotal evidence, take it with a grain of salt, but I've talked to two triage nurses about vaccines, one at the time was on the job for 15 years, the other 6? They've never filled out any paperwork linking the hundreds of life-threatening reactions kids were being hospitalized for after getting a shot, because they were not even aware of such paperwork's existence.

    What's all this talk about FORCING kids to get vaccines in a free society? I thought freedom meant that loving parents had priority over their children's well-being before bureaucrats.
    Unvaccinated children are not allowed to school because they would pose a health danger to the other children… to the other…vaccinated children?

  • The lady with the 10 kids plays it off like she was on her way to vaccinate her children, but during the car ride they got whooping cough. I'm 100% sure her kids got sick before she made an attempt to research vaccines any further.

  • Vaccinate them and they will get the measles… What a dumbass. A vaccine is literally giving you the disease so your body knows how to combat it.

  • how they convince the Indian anti-vaxxer lady that quickly?
    She was like "I'm taking my kids straight to the clinic after this"

  • Bravo to the women at the start that realised antivax was all BS. That's more than some of these facebook 'parents' out there.
    I say parents but really I mean morons.

  • The only problem with anti-vaxxers that I have is that their offspring won't live long enough to help pay for their pensions, making US pay for them instead.

  • Things i dont get is most of these people HAVE BEEN VACCINATED, and are FINE, yet they think they their kids WONT be? lol

  • CBC exposed for their lack of critical thinking . Do your research CBC and be less biased. You might learn a thing or two.

  • It's good that the women at the beginning realised through their own research the BS that is the anti-vax movement. But there is an underlying problem here: to many people, the first response to claims they see on Facebook is fear rather than scepticism. This mindset is always due to a lack of education. And being educated is not about knowing a lot about certain things. It's about having a healthy amount of scepticism, and having ways to find verify the facts.

  • Important reporting CBC, thanks for doing this.

    I suspect that reasoning, evidence, elucidation of cognitive biases are unlikely to move the most hardcore antivaxxers – as evidenced by this comment section. Their zealotry seems immune to everything. I hope that work like this can be useful in educating the larger group of people like Megyn & Tera (2:41 & 20:55)

  • Thanks to the Lord we have a choice. Everybody should have 10 vaccines every month. Anti-vaxxers chose suicide to make room for you. Be happy & go get some shots

  • There's never been side by side studies of health of vaccinated vs. health of unvaccinated in the same age range and health quality of life.
    When the study's always have statistical magic involved it obscures the truth.

  • The way I understand that vaccines at work is they give you a weakend AKA deactivated version of a virus. your immune system is fed false reconnaissance and prepares for a foreign Invader much weaker than what it'll actually encounter leaving you crippled to the actual virus.

  • Why wouldn't this taxpayer funded broadcaster show both sides of the argument?
    What's wrong with being fair and balanced, instead of projecting one-sided bias?
    What disgusting propaganda, the Soviets would be proud.

  • Its simple, instead of lying and discrediting. Have public debates.
    Its healthy to have checks and balances. The truth will perservere.

  • I love a lot of the info they provided here, but………If I were creating a documentary to expose pseudo-science, I probably wouldn't run my own pseudo-scientific "experiment" in the middle of the documentary to try and prove my point. 11:52

  • I think it is hilarious how Asha Tomlinson starts with, ""They don't trust mainstream media, so we're sending producers in with hidden cameras."

    I wonder why they don't trust mainstream media…

    Before anyone asks – I have vaccinated all four of my kids and think all kids should be vaccinated.

  • @5:53 well allergies. It maybe not causing allergy but it can contain for example egg that can cause an allergic reaction. But that's a whole different story. Just wanted to point it out before someone else react to it.

  • The issues we see in children is more likely related to sugar intake of mothers during pregnancies. Take the fault of their backs on to others.

  • So how much money does CBC take from pharmaceutical companies for advertising? I have a feeling it’s WAY more than a few thousand dollars. This report is laughable. Y’all don’t need to go undercover to expose anything bc there’s nothing to expose lol.

  • anti-vaxxers are the same people that deny climate change and think the earth is flat

  • Letting your kids contract measles is dangerous. Measles is deadly. And if your kid survives, it can permanently destroy their immune system. This isn't the same thing as a bout of chicken pox.

  • Too funny, criticizing the vaccine-truth community for sharing personal stories of harm when this is precisely the strategy used over and over again by many in the public health community when promoting the addition of industry's hazardous waste fluoride acid to public drinking water (fluoridation). We saw it again just recently in Calgary, i.e. horrible pictures of baby-bottle tooth decay (which water fluoridation can't possibly prevent) even though the U.S. National Toxicology Program had recently described fluoride as a presumed neurodevelopmental hazard for humans. But when the public shares their legit stories to warn others of potential vaccine injuries, Marketplace treats it like some sort of scandal.

  • This is an example of how the CBC has become a propaganda tool to misinform the public. The science is incontrovertible that vaccines are dangerous and this is shock drama that you're trying to escalate. The reporting on this is ignorant and deception.

  • OmG SO SCAred of THeSe diseased Children. More scared of the politicians trying to remove our 2nd amendment right than kids who are NOT sick

  • I’m pro vaccination, not flu shots. I do understand tho there is a mass distrust of government and fear for doing the best for your child. It’s probably the easiest fear to manipulate.

  • "Hidden camera investigation" in which we put huge mics in people's faces and pretend that they don't know we're interviewing them… 🙄

  • In the heart of Washington DC number one unvaccinated unvaccinated place in the country!! Why? Because it's not a state and they don't have the same rules everyone else does. I'm number for 4344 on that bus my vaccine injury 1979
    .I almost died from one MMR shot. Given a medical exemption and told I almost died because of the shot. Today's doctors would never associate. Maybe you should talk to the top officials in Washington DC on why they don't vaccinate their own kids not just the advocates on the vax tour..?

  • Sending producers with your bias to create a video like this to enforce your bias. great job on continuing your lies CBC

  • Why are the pharmaseutical companies exempt from damage caused by vaccines? No one is asking this question. If children who are vaccinated are immune to this ailments why should they be worried about their children catching the disease? After a vaccine we shed the virus via our skin in some cases. All these scientists are bought and paid for by big pharma… Follow the money trail

  • There are more and more variations of deadly flu. Guess all flu bacteria are learning to defeat all the flu vaccines. Soon the shots will be useless like penicillin since the body is being trained to forget how to protect itself and instead rely on dozens of shots, extremely profitable for doctors and politicians who buy massive shares in drugs they simply fill their pockets. Pfizer also supports most TV stations. Why would any TV station say anything negative about drugs when so such of their advertising profit comes from drug ads? Start counting them. Most people want mercury injected into their children year after year anyway, right? 🤔

  • Wow…..why don’t take your cameras into the business of pharmaceutical/vaccines and see what you get. Since you don’t show facts about your hit piece……I don’t believe anything you say. It’s the same sham the global warming.

  • If vaccines are so safe then why don't the manufacturers accept liability? Why can't they be sued by anyone? Are they not willing to stand by their products? Vaccine injury DOES happen because the courts have acknowledged this and the government have shelled out billions from the vaccine injury fund… People then say "of course a drug is not 100% safe but vaccine injury is SO RARE!" …. so if it's really rare then why stop people from being able to sue? Makes no sense and is really off putting. If the manufacturers took more responsibility and got rid of their exemption from liability then they would gain back a lot of trust. Just sayin'.

  • “There are even antivaxxers from Canada”….

    You mean you have some rational thinking people still left there ?

  • Nice propaganda. Too bad even the CDC proves you to be wrong. 1 in 10,000 will have atleast 1 seizure. 1 in 5,000 will have a fever over 105. The newest study shows an INCREASED risk for whooping cough amongst the VACCINATED. You should be ashamed of your fear tactics. And most people who do not vaccinate do not care about wakefield or whether his study is accurate or not. We based our decisions on EBP research newer than the 90s.

  • Can anyone explain why 1 in 50 children are autistic today. In 1950 it was 1 in 1000.

    Can anyone please explain what caused this?

    Are we to understand that creating natural immunity is dangerous?

    The one item I find very odd as well is the outright lie that Herd Immunity means everyone must have a vaccine or they do not work.

    Herd Immunity actually means that once a small percentage of humans are naturally immune everyone becomes immune.

    Why do Vaccine makers outright lie regarding the Herd Immunity concept?

    That is a question. Please since you know everything can you teach us why the lies continue?

  • Good to see those two vaccine skeptics in the focus group seeing the light at the end of the study. Maybe there's hope for us yet. Though reading these comments is making me less optimistic – some of these folks are reeeeeal dumb.

  • Maybe a pandemic plague of measles, mumps take your pick will convince these wilfully ignorant jack asses that vaccines are not bad.

  • Have you considered the possibility that the anti-vaccination movement is a misinformation campaign back by foreign imperialism (Maybe Russia or China) in an effort to weaken the populations of democratic countries, in preparation for traditional or biological warfare? They're trying to make our populations dwindle via removal of immunity to diseases. F Ted Cruz, ain't no planet X, BIG MONEY SALVIA OUT

  • You can't get me to believe that drug companies aren't making big bucks from vaccines. Drug companies don't do anything out of the goodness of their hart.

  • Sad what they do to our kids. Watch my video on the homicidal/suicidal effects of psychotropics. Shows a young boy polydrugged that got akathisia and he hung himself 😭

  • REMEMBER JENNIFER HIBBEN WHITE WHO MADE CBC HEADLINES BECAUSE HER POOR BABY GRIFFIN MIGHT HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO MEASLES. HER GRANDFATHER HAD SHARES IN PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES.

  • Don't mix the vaccines we got back in the days in the 80's with what is being given today. From a few to many vaccines for all sorts of things. It's not just anti-vaxxers, it's people who saw a difference in their kids shortly after vaccinations. There are world known, respected *independent* researchers who confirm that vaccines given today, in the USA, are potentially dangerous, and who recommend sticking to the vaccines given during the 80's. The pharma industry is a multi-billion industry, they buy research, they file law suits,  buy the media and politicians.  Even the flu shot is  advertised as 'free'.. They make Money, and how many people do you know who've taken these flu vaccines yearly and get sick Every Year? Then the doctors claim that the vaccines at least 'reduce recovery time, while those who avoid the flu shots often avoid getting sick. The flu shots harm your immune system, not short term, this is long term damage, as well as being injected directly into the body with un-known chemicals, the effectiveness of flu shots is generally low, as scientists have to 'guess' which strains of flu will occur, the flu shot effectiveness may only be 10%. Our food has to be labeled, but to acquire an ingredient list for vaccines is impossible. Do your research on vaccines. It's hard to do as there are many paid for articles out there. Healthcare shouldn't be for profit, but yet here it is. *The measles outbreak in 2015 in CA, 38% of the virus sequences were obtained from patients whom were identified as reactions to their Measles vaccines, not caused by the wild-type measles. A 43-year-old flight attendant infected by measles in 2019 died, due to encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain, which is a rare complication of both measles and the MMR vaccine, yet the media failed to mention it.*  A human should be allowed to deny vaccines. If vaccines were to work perfectly, those who are vaccinated would have nothing to worry about. You are in charge of your own health, but wouldn't it be nice if there was more control over these multi-billion dollar industries being able to use their power to influence research and laws. What is concerning is that they would try to enforce vaccines to the public, all in the name of profit – and NOT for the well being off society.

  • FYI Marketplace: your hidden cameras (creepy, especially when Timothy Caulfield is involved) spying on experiments that have nothing whatsoever to do with vaccines, and your one-sided discussions of biases, do nothing whatsoever to convince me that anyone should vaccinate. And implying that people should take (steal?) money from someone in order to prevent Marketplace from taking (stealing?) from someone else, as if everyone else is responsible for regulating the behaviour of the Marketplace producers, also does nothing to convince me. It only causes me to shake my head and seriously wonder about the intelligence behind our taxpayer-funded journalism. God help us.

  • Starting around 5:40 Timothy Caulfield says there is no evidence to support the thinking that vaccines do harm. How can he not know of Dr. Mawson's study out of Jackson State University in 2017? Or Dr. Peter Aaby's 2012 study of the much greater mortality of vaccinated children in Ghana, Africa?

  • This is again a despicable attack on injured consumers seeking justice and those who seek to protect our freedoms against mandatory vaccinations. Corporate buyouts who continue to paint injured consumers and concerned citizens working together of course cannot present anything but fearmongering with surface level edited snips. Every Pharma product that caused injuries to consumers that were denied by the industry neteorked together to see seek justice. Pharma is truly resorting to dirty and low class attacks on consumers yet again because they cannot face the mounting legal wave headed towards their cash cow product. These despicable "journalists" are what enables Pharma to continue their slaighter and silencing of victims. Shame on all of you buyouts and if you are so confodent, engage in open and fair debate instead of withering around like snakes.
