Question reblogged from Life in The ER with 15,979 notes

You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….

image

This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

Have a lovely day, sugar. 

Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

So! Here we go!

Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

image

And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

image

You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

image

image

And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

image

Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

image

Ahem.

Anti-vaxxers are a danger to the world and we need to stop them tbh

GODDAMMIT. I AM SICK OF THESE ANTI-VAXXER SHIT GOBLINS.

VACCINATE THOSE WHO CAN BE VACCINATED TO PROTECT THOSE WHO LEGITIMATELY CANNOT.

I DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU THINK YOU’RE A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE FLOATING AROUND IN YOUR SPARKLY CLOUD OF YOUR OWN SELF RIGHTEOUS FARTS THAT WILL PROTECT YOU FROM DISEASES LIKE POLIO.

GET. A. GODDAMN. CLUE. THEN GET VACCINATED. VACCINATE YOUR SPAWN.

YOUR BATSHIT BELIEFS ARE KILLING PEOPLE.

In my opinion, refusing to vaccinate a child who can be vaccinated is tantamount to medical neglect. I am 100% done with being nice to anti-vaxxers. We need to bring back exiling people. Andrew Wakefield and Jenny McCarthy are the first to go.

Retweet because AGREED.

IT’S BACK

Saw this circling through my dash again.

Question reblogged from Life a la Med with 279 notes

Anonymous said: The cabbage repairs ACs right? I'm gonna start med school in the fall and my bf just graduated too but doesn't know what he wants to in life yet so he is working as an electrician with his dad. Everyone tells me that I should be with someone as "smart" as me and that one day I'll be making more money than him. It's not that I'm smarter I just studied harder and school wasn't his thing. Do people ever tell you the same thing about the cabbage?

md-admissions:

thenotquitedoctor:

ladykaymd:

aspiringdoctors:

Oh. My. Gosh.

First off, let me have a moment of righteous indignation on your behalf:

Ok, now that’s done with.

You are exactly right. And I have gotten the snob vibe a few times when my classmates or professors ask me what my betrothed does for a living. Luckily my family hasn’t given me any ilk of that sort.

There is this stupid snooty notion, especially among people who are very educated, that people who haven’t achieved as much schooling as they have aren’t as smart as they are. I don’t know about you, but I have met many highly educated people who are dumber than a box of rocks in every area of life except their little tiny window to expertise, which is silly.

Using myself and the Cabbage as an example: I am going to have an MD in two years, before that I went to college right out of high school, working two jobs and getting into mild amount of trouble that now just makes for funny stories. My partner made it to junior year of engineering school and decided he’d rather live in Colorado and snowboard, then he was in a bunch of bands and toured around and made legitimately poor life choices, and then he started working for an HVAC company and a year or so later he met me, and here we are almost 2 years later happy as can be.

I know a lot of things my partner does not: I’ve told him how cancer works, about why biostats can tell us that kale study he’s so excited about needs a bigger sample size, about why he should take ibuprofen instead of tylenol for his hangover, how sunscreen works, what sleep apnea is and why his mom needs to get that checked out, and occasionally some super nerdy art history stuff.

My partner knows a lot of things that I do not: how to fix the lawnmower when it would spontaneously die halfway through the front yard, how to change the lights in my car and change the oil, how to clean out air conditioner and heater to save us money on our bills, how to make a flawless steak, how to do a 360 flip on a snowboard, how to play a song on the guitar after hearing it once or twice, an exhaustive knowledge of 1990-2007 American rappers, how motors work, and what that weird sound the washing machine is making and how to fix it.

One pile of knowledge is not necessarily better than the other. Obviously he would be useless trying to take an H&P and figure out a differential, but I would be equally useless on a 98 degree day staring at a nonfunctional AC unit. It’s situational. To be 100% honest, sometimes I think that skilled labor knowledge is more useful in daily life than my cyclopedic knowledge of molecular cancer mechanisms- because if something breaks on me and I have no Cabbage or Padre to help, my options are replacing it or paying someone else to fix it.

Finally, it doesn’t matter who makes more money in the relationship. That someone even cares enough to point out that you, future lady physician, will make more money than your electrician male partner is a handy dandy little piece of bullshit brought to you by the patriarchy, or just a really greedy person. So what? As long as you are on the same page about how your money is to be used, as long as you always communicate openly and honestly about money even if it feels slimy, as long as you never put money above your partner you will be fine.

Personally, I think you are in a great spot. I think the Cabbage is so much smarter than me in many areas, and that makes our relationship fun because I get to learn from him all the time.

So tell those haters to piss off.

This is important.

There is no one definition of “smart”.

I could not change the oil in my car. I could never rewire a house. If my computer breaks I turn it off and on until it works. I have no idea how to make investments. I don’t have ANY business savvy.

But I know how to sow wounds or could tell you a whole bunch about antihypertensive medications. I can make a cake from scratch without a recipe or make homemade ravioli.

I’m not “smarter” than someone who knows how to teach kindergardeners or knows how to build engines from the ground up.

We all have different skills. And that’s awesome.

And honestly, it’s great to be in a relationship with someone who brings different skills to the table. If you can’t cook, it’s great if your partner can! If your partner can’t balance a checkbook—hey! You can help out with that.

This is just super important and I wanted you all to read it.

Love this!
