EPA researchers publishing a study in the Feb. 16 issue of Environmental Science & Technology were "surprise[ed]" to find a worldwide jump in the incidence of autism beginning in 1988.
Thus, the study concluded, "Although the debate about the nature of increasing autism continues, the potential for this increase to be real and involve exogenous environmental stressors exists."
According to the Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, 1988 was the year the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices added a second dose of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine to its list of recommendations.
SCPI actually found three "change points" in autism trends – 1981, 1988 and 1995. Here is what correlated to those years:

I don’t understand much about vaccines, but you read about them containing mercury and fetal cells and ya have to wonder about them.
I find it hard to believe there’s human fetal cells in vaccines.
Could the fetal cells be undifrentiated and make their way to the brain (which is one of the fastest developing organs at the time of early childhood meaning it is full of cellulare grow signals.). Once int hebrain they start to develop but they in essence throw the blance off on the type of cells and the wiring of those cells????
It’s an issue of contamination. Vaccines are contaminated with things all the time. Just read a recent story about a pig virus being in a hugely popular vaccine. Saw it here on FR.
It happens ALL the time.
I agree your thinking is plausible. My son just had his chicken pox vaccine today - then I come home and read this. It is distressing....
Expansion of the autism definition in DSM-III, published 1980--one year before her first point(1981).
Further loosening of the autism definition in DSM-III-R, published 1987-- one year before the second of her perceived flex points(1988).
Further expansion of the autism definition in DSM-IV, published in 1994-- one year before her third perceived flex points(1995).
Any plausible mechanism for "fetal cells" to cause a rise in the rate of diagnosis of autism remains to be demonstrated.
But changing the definition of autism so that basically any odd kid can now be considered autistic, explains a whole helluva lot, and it obeys the law of parsimony.
Believe it! Let me recommend going to the CDC website & you’ll learn a lot about the ingredients in vaccines.
But what does adding fetal cells add to the process? It just doesn’t make sense.
Why are human fetal cells lying around the lab to contaminate the vaccine? What do they do with them?
Who has the autism pong list now?
The vaccines are actually developed in aborted human cell cultures (ie cell lines). It’s the medium in which the vaccines are developed. Just like chicken eggs are used to develop vaccines.
Huh, learn something ever day.
Yeah, generally vaccines are cultured (grown) in some medium. Usually either tissues of an animal (ie monkey kidney, rabbit tissue, chicken eggs) or the aborted human cell tissue lines.
As per the information below, certain vaccines are produced using cultures of on cell lines derived from aborted fetal tissue from the 1960’s:
Letter from NVPO
Dear Mr. And Mrs. Lambert:
Thank you for your letter concerning the use of aborted fetal tissue in vaccines. Human cell-line cultures are used during production of some vaccines such as varicella, rabies, inactivated polio virus, and hepatitis A. Some of these cell lines originated from fetal tissue obtained from legal abortions in the 1960s. The term “cell-line culture” refers to the substrate substance that is used for the propagation of a live virus that is used in the production of a viral vaccine. Fetal tissue has not been used to produce licensed vaccines. These tissues were used to establish cell cultures, and it is these established cell cultures that have been used to propagate virus. Since cell lines can be maintained indefinitely, no additional aborted fetuses have been used since the cell lines were initiated in the 1960s.
The reasons for using fetal cell lines are: (1) fetal cells divide much more rapidly than adult cells, and (2) there is a safety advantage in using human, rather than animal, cell lines for development and manufacture of vaccines for humans. The decision to use fetal cell lines was scientific and did not imply support for abortions.
Vaccines have been proven over the decades to be safe and effective. I am glad to know that you understand the necessity of vaccines and their value. I hope that, before making a final decision, you will discuss these concerns with your child’s medical provider.
“The decision to use fetal cell lines was scientific and did not imply support for abortions.” Ah, so evil in the name of science is not really evil. Got it.
