Good Morning Viewers of Britain today slammed a screaming mother who claimed that the MMR vaccine "does not work" in a row with a doctor on television.
Biba Tanya appeared on the ITV show in a controversial segment on the MMR vaccine but soon started talking about the hosts and other guests.
In addition to falsely declaring that the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine does not work, he said that "measles is not a serious condition."
The dott. Hilary Jones, a GMB resident physician, quickly corrected her claims, which sparked outrage over Twitter.
Spectators have called Ms. Tanya a "screaming banshee", "an illusion old b ****", "bad" and "very aggressive".
The MMR vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective, and has been routinely given to children in the UK for decades, preventing thousands of deaths.
Biba Tanya (the center in the picture, next to Catherine Cooper, who was pro-vaccination, and Good Morning Britain, Hilary Jones, right) sparked outrage online after claiming the MMR vaccine "does not work" and shouting to the other guests on the morning show
Ms. Tanya, a mother of three, appeared on the show along with another mother, Catherine Cooper, who was in favor of the vaccination, but struggled to get a word.
Having been on the show before discussing having her children at home, claiming she can do a better job than teachers, Ms. Tanya said, "I know the vaccine does not work."
He said that his son had been "damaged" by the vaccine, having been hospitalized with suspected meningitis after he had hit and taken measles despite being vaccinated.
Ms. Tanya said that measles are not "a fatal disease in a healthy child", claiming that children who had died in the past had been unhealthy at the beginning.
This was challenged by dr. Hilary, who stated that measles is "absolutely" a serious condition and can kill children.
After being told to calm down from the GMB host, Ben Shephard, Ms. Tanya continued: "I want my son to develop his immune system.
"You can put nine viruses into an eight-week-old baby [and] their immune system is strong enough to resist, but is not strong enough to resist measles? "
The dott. Hilary said: "Anyone who wants to return to pre-vaccination era does not really understand what science has achieved."
Viewers quickly took advantage of Twitter to slam Ms. Tanya's attitude and ignorance & # 39 ;.
A user called Lee said: "What a deluded old b ****".

MEASURING CASES IN THE UNITED KINGDOM ARE TRIPLE IN 2018
The data at the beginning of this month showed that there were 903 cases of measles, which can be fatal for children, in the United Kingdom this year – more than triple for the whole of 2017.
And there have been outbreaks across Europe, with over 40,000 cases on the continent in the first six months of 2018, with 37 people dying from this condition.
Experts say the lower vaccination rates are partly to blame for the growing number of fatal infections.
The intake of both doses – at the age of one year and again at the age of three – is now about 87% in England, less than the goal 95% needed to stop the spread of measles.
The 95 percent goal is in place to ensure the immunity of the herd, which is the time when so many people have been vaccinated against an infection that even those that have none are protected.
Professor Dame Sally Davies, the chief medical officer in England, beat the anti-vaccine activists this month, saying, "We've been vaccinating millions of children for over 30 years, it's a safe vaccination, we know, and we've saved millions of lives in Worldwide.
"The people who spread these myths, when the children die, will not be there to collect the pieces or blame".
Dr. Leah, a qualified physician and former winner of The Apprentice, said: "Biba is dangerously wrong here.
"It's frightening to see his incorrect argument actually broadcast on TV.
"I hope it's not mom [sic] watching this is easy enough to hear this nonsense against the clearly established medical evidence to support your child's vaccination. "
The user Carly Pierro added: "That woman was an abomination … shouting screaming and becoming aggressive with her" facts "that she probably found on a Facebook group."
Hilary Philip tweeted: "There's nothing wrong with feeling passionate about your beliefs, but come on, a little bit of decorum that seems less like a screaming banshee."
Ms. Tanya introduced the cancer into her arguments, stating that MMR vaccines "have not been tested for carcinogenic effects".
Vaccination rates, now at 91% in the United Kingdom, collapsed after the publication of a study by Andrew Wakefield in 1998, according to which the jab could cause autism.
The study revealed that it was wrong and Wakefield was expelled and banned from practicing medicine in the United Kingdom – he now lives in the United States, where the "anti-vaxxer" movement continues.
But experts keep hammering home that the vaccine is safe and works – saying that those who believe otherwise are "absolutely wrong".
In response to Ms Tanya's outburst, Chris Manning tweeted: "Vaccines save millions every year, I can not believe that we are really discussing this day and age."
Sally Plummer, who claimed to be a nurse and a mother, added: "People who are misinformed as Biba who sucks in ignorant propaganda endangers the health of our entire society."
A user who called Koren tweeted: "People who become so crazy and passionate in a group discussion are not taken seriously and just look bad and deluded!"
The user Carly Pierro added: "That woman was an" abomination ", suggesting she had her ideas on vaccination from a group on Facebook instead of using scientific facts
Chris Manning tweeted: "I can not believe that in this day and age we are really discussing this"
Sally Plummer, a nurse and mother, said that the people who hold Ms Tanya's opinions are "endangering the health of the whole society"
A user named koren said that Ms. Tanya was "very aggressive" and was acting "crazy" – people should trust doctors instead, she said
Polly Stanley said her children had measles and she "would not want it from any child"
Martin Van Buren challenged the presence of GMB at the discussion and giving the transmission time to the anti-vaccine views, which he said "could cost the life"
Polly Stanley wrote: "I could not have my children vaccinated against measles for medical reasons and they were so sick when they took".
While others have challenged the presence of GMB, although they have discussed the issue in the first place, saying that it is dangerous to spread ideas about unsafe vaccines.
Martin Van Buren tweeted: "There's no" debate "about this – that's irresponsible at best, you could cost your life with this."
Did ANDREW WAKEFIELD DISCREDIT THE RESEARCH OF THE AUTHORITY ON THE BALL FOR LOW-FAST VACCINATION RATES?
Andrew Wakefield's discredited research on autism has long been accused of a decline in measles vaccination rates
In 1995, gastroenterologist Andrew Wakefield published a study in The Lancet that showed that children who had been vaccinated against MMR were more likely to have intestinal disease and autism.
He hypothesized that the injection of a "dead" form of the measles virus through vaccination would cause rupture of the intestinal tissue, leading to both disorders.
After a 1998 document further confirmed this discovery, Wakefield said, "The risk of this particular syndrome [what Wakefield termed ‘autistic enterocolitis’] the development is related to the combined vaccine, the MMR, rather than the individual vaccines. "
At the time, Wakefield had a patent for individual measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines and was therefore accused of having a conflict of interest.
Nonetheless, MMR vaccination rates in the United States and the United Kingdom collapsed, until, in 2004, the then Lancet publisher, Dr. Richard Horton described Wakefield's research as "fundamentally imperfect," adding that it had been paid by lawyers seeking legal action against vaccine manufacturers.
The Lancet formally withdrew the Wakefield research paper in 2010.
Three months later, the General Medical Council banned Wakefield from practicing medicine in Britain, stating that his research had shown an "insignificant disdain". for the health of children.
On 6 January 2011, The British Medical Journal published a report showing that of the 12 children included in the 1995 Wakefield study, at most two had autistic symptoms after vaccination, rather than the eight that he supported.
At least two of the children had developmental delays before being vaccinated, but Wakefield's document said they were all "previously normal".
Further findings revealed that none of the children had autism, colitis or non-specific symptoms within a few days of receiving the MMR vaccine, however the study claimed that six of the participants all suffered from it.
