Measles has surged back in Europe, while whooping cough is has become a problem here in the U.S.
Childhood immunization rates plummeted in parts of Europe and the U.K. after a 1998 study falsely claimed that the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella was linked to autism.
That study has since been found to be fraudulent. But fears about vaccine safety have stuck around in Europe and here in the U.S.
NPR maps the resurgence of preventable diseases due to public ignorance and lamentable misinformation about vaccines.

Can we please go back to the modern fucking era?
i love that world war 2 is called world war 2
it sounds like the sequel to an action movie
“WORLD WAR 2….
GERMANY’S BACK, AND THIS TIME….
this has a great deal of accuracy though
That’s basically what happened.
Thing I am trying to make myself learn so I’ll stop stressing out so much:
Just because there are other people out there who could do a better job at any given thing, doesn’t mean you can’t still give it a try. The fact that more talented/skilled people exist doesn’t mean that anything you do will be by comparison worthless/pointless/stupid. Give it a try anyway. So what if you can’t do [skill] the same way as someone else? The world needs lots of different approaches and viewpoints, and everyone has something unique and important to offer. Don’t let your fear of not being as good as others hold you back from participating at all. You’re allowed to jump in and give it a try, too. Besides, you won’t get better if you never actually try it out and do the work.
Bolding is mine, because it bears repeating: “EVERYONE has something unique and important to offer.” Get that? EVERYBODY. If you’re writing fanfics, or drawing, or stitching, or singing and dancing, cosplaying, knitting, making paper flowers—I don’t give a damn what you do. Just do it, because it all has value. Your work has value.
Your work has value.
