Jimmy Kimmel on Vaccinations

Sometimes the  best comedy is the stuff that's true to life.  Think George Carlin talking about "Sr Mary Discipline with the steel ruler" and the absurdities of television banning 7 "dirty" words but yet being perfectly okay with all manner of grotesque violence.

Anyway, with that is mind, I found the following clip from Jimmy Kimmel's late night show, where he (for the most part) seriously talks about childhood vaccinations.  It's worth a watch as an example of satire that's hitting a serious nerve.

The major piece of mock research that claims a link to Autism and childhood vaccinations (see HERE) was been completely discredited.  Simply put, there is no link between Autism and vaccinations.  Read HERE, among other credible sources.  The bottom line?

"Multiple studies have been completed which investigated the measles, mumps and rubella vaccination in relation to autism. Researchers have also studied thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative, to see if it had any relation to autism. The results of studies are very clear; the data show no relationship between vaccines and autism."
