Who believes Autism...

is caused by toxins in vaccines? If you do not believe that vaccines cause Autism, then do you believe it's genetic?

By the way... if you're tired of these kind of questions, then move on.

  • And one more thing...Vaccines cause more than just Autism. The destruction of these toxins in our bodies will forever change us, we may not see the damage right away, but as we get older, we will. That makes us one of the lucky ones, some see the damage, and death right away. So, you keep thinking what you think, and I will keep knowing what I know. One day this will all come out, like all things eventually do...will you be singing the same tune then?

  • I think everything is a mixture of both the environment and genetics. Your genes give you a pre-disposition to everything. If your already more apt to develop a disease then your environment is going to either make or break your situation. So i could see why you would blame medication, but i would not say it is solely one thing or the other. Always a combination.

  • its the MMR vax that most kids have developed autism after and thats one that want to do in combination with many others and still has Mercury in it. never let them give your child mercury.

  • I havent done much research, and this doesnt directly answer your question, but i wonder if people are mistaking mental delays due to celiac's disease for autism.
    Ive heard many women say their child just isnt connecting or talking much, then they go on a gluten free diet, and its cured.
    There's much more to it, but im not convinced every diagnosed case of autism is actually autism.
    Much like ADD/ADHD.

  • MMR hasnt had mercury since the early 80s, though.
    and actually, according to the CDC, it has never contained it.

  • MMR: Neomycin (antibiotic), Sorbitol chemical), Hydrolized Gelatin, Chick Embryonic Fluid, and Human Diploid Cells (aborted fetal tissue, lungs). That's some pretty nasty crap to shoot into someones blood stream.

  • The MMR does NOT cause Autism, no vaccine causes Autism. A child is normally diagnosised with Autism around the same time that the MMR is give, it is a coincidence. A child has to have a genetic predisposition to Autism for them to develop it. Envrionmental factors can trigger that genetic predisposition. Also, the mother is the carrier of the Autism gene. Autism can be triggered from many things including maternal illness. There is NO evidence of the MMR or any vaccine causing Autism. And sometimes, it just happens like any disease.

  • i have several friends/ family members on the autism spectrum. i don't think vaccines are involved. i do think genetics play a role in it. some kids who are not vaxed are autistic too, so it makes no sense to blame vaccines. i am a selective vaxer, for other reasons. autism is the least of my worries when it comes to that.

  • Genetics and I am leaving it at that.
