A twitter troll demonstrates the misinformed and passionate fight against the SCIENCE of vaccines #science

storCheck out the STORIFY I wrote summarizing a twitter discussion about vaccines… or so I thought. It involves an anti-vaccine troll ignoring facts and science to argue against vaccines, while spewing misinformation and conspiracy theories! Language warning – some of the tweets include swearing (not from CauseScience). Thanks to @divyaramjee and @sassyinmyheart for supporting vaccines. Trolls like this are not far removed from the anti-vaccine movement, and represent what science is fighting against when it comes to vaccines.
