If more percentages of parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children in fear of Autism, why is the Autism rate still climbing?
This thought just occurred to me after a friendly debate with my anti-vaxxing SIL. The CDC (obviously) doesn't cite vaccines as a cause on their Autism page, but they do cite reasons such as premature births and older parents as being potential causes. It's just my opinion, I'm no doctor, but I'm going to guess that more premature babies are surviving infancy than ever before; maybe there is a real link there? And there are a lot more older couples having children thanks to great strides in fertility treatments and options; doesn't it sound feasible?
