I've heard they don't, so what's the big deal with people thinking they do?
No. Look how many millions get vaccines and no autism. Also look how many see signs before the MMR.
I think the only way a vaccine causes autism is if there is an underlining condition. as the PP said, there are a lot of people vaccinated and not everybody has autism.
Also, people say that the rates have increased a lot since there are more vaccines given now; however, IMO the reason we see more cases is because before they were hidden, remember back in the day having someone in the family with a physical or mental condition was a social burden so people hid them, they were al shipped to homes and never spoken of, same with down syndrom.
I am unsure
There was a guy who released research saying that vaccines cause autism, so that's where people think they do. He has since been debunked, and even rescinded on his research saying it was fake. But for whatever reason people want to insist that they still do.
i dont think they do
We do not vaccinate but our reasons have zero to do with autism because I do not believe that vaccines CAUSE autism. I do, however, believe that some kids are predisposed to autism and the toxic over load, in the form of vaccines, triggers it.
Quoting Anonymous:No. Look how many millions get vaccines and no autism. Also look how many see signs before the MMR.
I personally believe that vaccines do not CAUSE autism, however, just because millions of kids aren't effected by vaccines, does not mean that some aren't. This would be like saying that cigerettes don't cause cancer because look at the millions of smokers who do not have cancer. Anecdotal evidence does not work.
There was a study done by a doctor that showed a correlation between childhood vaccines and autism. While the study was retracted and false, people still believe there is a link though it cannot be scientifically proven.
