    Facebook under pressure to halt rise of anti-vaccination groups

    Facebook is under pressure to stem the rise of anti-vaccination groups spreading false information about the dangers of life-saving vaccines while peddling unfounded alternative treatments such as high doses of vitamin C.
    So-called “anti-vaxxers” are operating on Facebook in closed groups, where members have to be approved in advance. By barring access to others, they are able to serve undiluted misinformation without challenge.

    I dont think they are calling for these idiots to get banned.It looks more like opening up these echo chambers.There is documented evidence of public health scares and it is in all our interests to shed light on these cultists.

    I know it’s news to you, but there is plenty of evidence that some types of vaccines may be dangerous.

    To be fair, it's only the anti-vaxxer's kids who would be dying.

    Consider it a field experiment for evolution.

    Yep, and I know of a person who drowned when his car ran into the river, because he couldn't get his car door open. You wanna ban car doors now?
