And don't get me started on GMOs.

Same reason people don't vaccinate their kids. Unfounded fear/ignorance.

Well, I guess nobody better tell them that all point-to-point wireless communication uses microwave bands. And just a couple things they might use themselves. Like, all wi-fi and cell networks.

Oh don't worry, they're already on to those dangerous wifi signals Laughat

I agree. But why? What would anyone have to gain from spending time spreading this kind of misinformation? What is the agenda?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Didn't someone pay Andrew Wakefield to fudge his test results? Who was that?

I'd bet it had to do with parents wanting an answer for why they have to suffer the heartache of raising a child with autism. Wanting someone to blame, not matter how irrational?

Money. Fame. Just look at the originator of the anti-vax movement despite him having been disbarred he makes tons of money (more than he would ever have as just a doctor) writing books and giving speeches all claiming that "Big Pharmacy" is behind everything from weight gain to autism. When you trace it back there is always a sales pitch included at the end of the theory. Homeopathy, crystals, a new "Ultra Diet" book. Always a sales pitch and again and again we see There's a sucker born every minute.

Easy question with an easy answer. Its a conspiracy!
They don't trust science or the people who fund the research and the results of the research.

RE: Why do people believe the fake science of microwaves being bad for you
I recently heard a woman say "This is completely true. My baby daughter used to cry all the time. Then our nanny stopped warming her bottles up in the microwave and, just like that, she stopped crying. That was all the proof I needed."

My nose is still bruised from the face-palm, but the bandage and gauze are gone now, so, that's good.

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.
