  • I wouldn't believe anything that is in a Jenny McCarthy book. The last I heard about that, most of the crap she's peddling was proven wrong anway.

  • It's a theory. One that has neither been proven nor disproven as of yet. It's interesting. I wanted to discount it just because it was Jenny Mcarthy too, but it WAS a good, informative read.

  • Do your own research.

    Never trust some nut job in a mall.

    Autism may be caused by materials in the may not. Nobody knows for sure, but to each their own.

  • didn't your mom teach you not to talk to strangers?

  • This is something you are going to want to look into for yourself and make up your own mind. Some people swear that that is the cause for autism. Others will tell you that it doesn't. I know that when my daughter was younger she was suppose to get the flu vaccine and they were out of the childs dose. They said they could give her the adult version but the preservitive in it has been said to possibly cause autism. I chose not to have her get the adult dose just wait for them to get in more of the child dose. It is a personal choice when you come right down to it.

  • I think it is funny that people think vaccines can cause autism. I work with special needs kiddos and the majority of the ones I have worked with over the course of 8 years that had autisim, never got vaccines.

  • lots of "experts" do think that vaccines are linked to autism, and lots of "experts" think they are not. you will have to do your own research on the topic.
