Does anyone believe in science here? Anyone?
Autism sets around the same time vaccines are administered. That does not mean the vaccines cause autism. People who neglect to give their children vaccinations are putting their children at risk and should be ashamed of their selfish behavior. I for one am glad we don’t live in a world where children die from measles mumps and rubella and we must thank the vaccine for this.
There have been numerous studies that prove no statistical significant relationship between autism and MMR.
One study below:
“Results Of the 537,303 children in the cohort (representing 2,129,864 person-years), 440,655 (82.0 percent) had received the MMR vaccine. We identified 316 children with a diagnosis of autistic disorder and 422 with a diagnosis of other autistic-spectrum disorders. After adjustment for potential confounders, the relative risk of autistic disorder in the group of vaccinated children, as compared with the unvaccinated group, was 0.92 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.68 to 1.24), and the relative risk of another autistic-spectrum disorder was 0.83 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.65 to 1.07). There was no association between the age at the time of vaccination, the time since vaccination, or the date of vaccination and the development of autistic disorder.”
Ignorant statements. You must be a member of the American Pediatric Society who doesn’t want to get sued. I also suspect that your family has not been affected. Good for you.
Yes I believe in science and I firmly believed in vaccinating my children and now my grandchildren.
Yes, I believe in science. I also believe in liberty, which must include the liberty to be wrong.
