Flu Shots During Pregnancy Could Reduce Autism Risk

Pre-loaded syringes of 2013/2014 flu vaccine.

Expectant moms have yet another good reason to get their flu shot. It will lower their new baby’s risk of autism. "From a public health point of view, this is very exciting news," says Greg Poland, M.D., head of Mayo Clinic'sVaccine Research Group. "About 1 in 88 kids or so in the U.S. are getting diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), so this is a major public health issue and the potential benefit is huge." The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says autism has increased tenfold over the past 40 years. So, who wouldn’t roll up their sleeve to lower the risk?  Dennis Douda has this report. [TRT 2:00]

 O FFS, and people just believe this crap? I am so glad for my midwife, I will be giving birth in a birthing center attached to the hospital, and even they know not to ask me if I want the flu shot.

 Funny thing is that girl looks familiar.  I  think I went to school with her.

Oh - so they are admitting there has been a real rise in autism, and not just a rise in diagnosis - as most pro-vaxxers usually claim?

I remember seeing this on the news last year when I was pregnant.  Apparently when you run a fever while pregnant that can cause autism.  Haven't pregnant women been getting the flu for thousands of years?  Why would this be linked to the sudden rise of autism all of the sudden?  Ridiculous!

 Something new they can say to up the vaccine sales.

I find it amazing how EVERYONE gets themselves and their children  flu shots now.  Everyone I know has gotten it.  When I was a kid, I never had it.  I don't know what is wrong with people.  It's like no one can think for themselves anymore.  Very scary.  I can't imagine being pregnant and injecting myself with a flu shot.
