A 12-year-old Mexican boy’s Facebook page devoted to science has garnered widespread attention after he posted a vid mocking anti-vaxxers, Deadstate reported.
The young video blogger, who goes by the name Marco Arturo, marveled that the video had been seen by more people than “the population of Bahamas, Belize, Greenland, Monaco, Bermuda and Dominica combined” after the two-minute clip passed 1 million views. As of Monday afternoon it had nearly tripled that figure.
“We’ve all been lied to by doctors and pharmaceutical companies about vaccines,” he says toward the beginning of the video. “After a lot of research I realized that vaccines do and will cause autism.”
He then holds up a folder bearing the label, Evidence that vaccines cause autism, saying he will go “page by page” to explain his controversial findings.
But when he opens the folder, all he pulls out are blank pages.
“I think it might be because there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that vaccines are linked to autism in any way whatsoever,” he quips.
Watch Marco Arturo’s video, as posted on Facebook, below.

Trump blasted as ‘pathological liar’ for claiming stock market is ‘starting to look very good’ after 1,000 point crash
The COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic spreading across the world has present challenges for President Donald Trump.
In addition to the public health challenge facing the administration, Trump's 2020 reelection campaign is also faced with an economic crisis as the virus disrupts global supply chains.
"Investors around the world retreated from stocks and piled into haven assets including government bonds and gold, reflecting escalating worries that the coronavirus will disrupt the global economy," The Wall Street Journal reported Monday. "The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 1,000 points—its biggest point decline in more than two years; the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note approached a record low; and gold prices climbed for the eighth straight session to a seven-year high."
Here are 11 of the most popular progressive policies for candidates to run on — and 5 of the least popular
New polling from the progressive pollster Data for Progress, described in a new piece Monday at Vox, points the way forward for Democrats looking to oust President Donald Trump from the White House and enact a liberal policy agenda.
Progressives often argue that their plans are broadly popular with Americans, and that these ideas are only prevented from becoming reality because of an obstinate Republican Party weaponizing racism and misinformation, archaic political institutions that stymie significant efforts at reform, and corruption across the two parties that allows special and corporate interests to undermine the popular will. And there is a fair amount of truth in this idea — some progressive idea are remarkably popular, and there's no good reason they haven't been implemented yet.
