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.

What about aspartame? We moms sure drink a lot of diet soda!

While there may not be many true studies out there on the effects of aspartame I personally do not drink diet soda. I've never been able to stand the taste.

I do not touch aspartame as i know many of the  negative effects as well as what it does to my personally.  Our household tries to stick to water mostly and home brewed iced tea.

I dont have a link, im mobile and dont feel like searching for one, lol, but i know it was on a website about autism. anyway a long term study involving children and pitocin (the possible effects on the babies) has shown a direct link between the drug and autism. They believe its when the drug is used incorrectly and in high dosages, the study is on going and these are just preliminary findings. i just thought it was interesting because in the last 15yrs or so it seems every dr pushes to induce woman for no medical reasons at all.....might explain the rapidly growing number of autistic children

Where did that damn horse go? Apparently he wasn't fully dead?? Let's beat him some more, maybe try the club or sludge hammer this time? Electrocution? Drowning?
Well maybe he is a zombie horse...aim for the brain! And don't forget the double tap this time.

I think any chemicals are bad when we're bombarded with them.

Do I think vaccines lend themselves to increases in stuff like autism? Sure.

Do I think vaccines protect against awful diseases? Sure.

Tough one.
