Non Vaccinating and Autism

Does anyone out there have any info on the instances of Autism in the NON vaccinated population? Have any studies ever been done to compare the number of those with autism against if they were or were not vaccinated? If anyone knows of such a study (NOT done by the vaccine companies themselves) please share the info with me!

  • I would be intersted in knowing this too. I have never actually heard of any correlating studies between vaxxed and non vaxxed

  • Some claim the Amish, who don't vaccinate, also have low autism rates. I don't know that this can be proven unless there is a through study of the children in this population. Autism can be a hard to diagnosis and is often missed.

  • I've heard of non vaxed kids with autism. Think with the Amish, is that there aren't many amish they also don't use outside medical help for getting pregnant. If they don't fall pregnant then it's Gods will. Therefore they have a lower birth rate as well.
