So, I know that this post will disagree with a few people out there but I'm posting it anyway.

Vaccines do not cause autism!

I am posting this because while many people claim there is a connection between vaccinations and autism(and other autism-spectrum disorders) there is no concrete evidence supporting those claims. For one, the study that claimed that there was a correlation between the two was redacted and denounced by every doctor, scientist, and even the man who wrote it!

Let me phraze it this way, autism normally starts exhibiting signs at around 12-18 months, yes? And you should normally start vaccinating a child between 2 months (earliest) and 15 months (latest). So when a child shows signs of autism parents look for something that might have triggered it while research shows you are BORN with it.

Correlation =/= causation.

Thank you for your time.

I believe that my ds was born autistic. I think that there are things that can cause certain symptoms to show more. I don't know if it's diet, vaccines, or environment. I vaccinate both my children. One is NT and the other ASD.

First of all, I agree with you, but I don't get why you are posting the question.

 I do and I don't believe it has a thing to do with my son being autistic.
