I have a cousin with autism and he is now 10. As well as I have worked with some children living with autism. I have also known of a one parent who does not believe in vaccinating...she did get them and her child still had autism. No, I do not believe vaccines cause autism. I do believe we are seeing more cases due to environmental issues. There are so many more toxins in our food, our home, our toys...our genes are being changed and harmed. Breast tissues of breastfeeding mothers have been found to contain harmful toxic plastics that are being passed on to the child. Yet if we formula feed the containers themselves transfer harmful toxins to the child. No matter what we seem to do our children are exposed to so many harmful contaminants. Even the rugs in our houses shed cancerous micro debris in the dust it kicks up. I believe in advocating for healthier green living and a better environment.

I believe that there are different reasons for autism. My son was born with it. He had lots of signs from birth.
I think maybe there is some truth to the vaccine thing., diet and just environmental. I always think it's being over diagnosed just like ADD. It's the first thing a lot of professionals go to.
