Study concludes anti-vaccine brains are wired differently
A recent study has shown that there is a significant and measurable difference in the brain structures of those who believe in scientific evidence and medicine and those who are “anti-vaccine”. The study looked at over 200 MRI brain scans; the researchers studied 103 MRI scans of people who self-identified as “anti-vaccine” and 108 MRI’s of the brains of a control group, who did not identify as anti-vaccine.
“The results were very surprising” said Dr. John Snow, lead researcher and presumed Pharma Shill. “The anti-vaccine group’s brains showed significant underdevelopment in the portion of the brain responsible for reason, logic and math.”
So what exactly does this mean? “It means that no matter how much evidence, reason, logic, etc. you show to an anti-vaxxer, they will never change their position. They believe they “know” they are right, even without any evidence.”
The researchers are hoping to expand the study to include all manner of conspiracy theorists, 9/11 truthers, Reiki masters, etc.
Although the researches claim they had no funding from pharmaceutical companies or vaccine manufacturers, it is presumed that anti-vaxxers will go ahead and claim they did anyway.
