What do anti-vaxxers, folks that swear MSG is a bad thing, and the quote above have in common?
“The info / sources are all faked”
I find it incredibly interesting how many people can simply read something, with really very little data backing up said claims, and accept it at face value.
Worse – when this info can be incredibly damaging – such as in the case of the anti-vax movement, one seriously wonders if this is simply a symptom of the decline of our education system.
Anyways, long story short – always check your sources. There’s no shame in being ignorant or admitting being wrong – but there’s absolutely terrible to be passing along bad information, especially when that bad info can cost lives.
