So do vaccines cause autism or not?

Posted by   + Show Post

I've heard they don't, so what's the big deal with people thinking they do?

All I know is my siblings and I were fully vaccinated and so are my four kids. No Autism here. Of course, that doesn't prove that it doesn't cause Autism in some people, those who may be genetically inclined or something?

I don't think they do.  It hasn't been proven that they do cause Autism.

Didn't they find an autism gene, that it is genetic?

No, some guy said they did but his findings turned out to be untrue.  I do believe they are thinking there is a genetic link.  Not entirely sure, so don't take my word on it.  Many people choose not to vaccinate due to reasons unrelated to autism.  My family has personally been affected by paralyzing illness due to not vaccinating so I lean the other direction.  But either way, no they don't cause autism.

No that was found to be false some time ago.
