ok ladies....I am probably going to ruffle some feather here but I figured I should share this.
I know of three people personally with autistic children. According to the most recent studies autism occures in 1 in every 150 to 300 children. That is a lot.
One of these people says that she demanded to have her son tested for heavy metals after he came back positive for autism. He came back positive for heavy metals and was treated for it...it did help but didn't cure the disease.
Two weekends ago I was talking with my friend about his son and he said that his son was "normal" until after his MMR shot. He said that he feels it has something to do with being on antibiotics within three months of getting the shot. He feels that the combination messes with the digestion and the way that nutrients is absorbed. Keep in mind...part of the immune system lies in the intestinal tract and it is called the payers patches. He said that he notices that his son is better if they alter his diet...
I am posting this simply to raise awareness. I will tell you right now, IF the vaccine is unmasking, or causing autism in certain combinations with other things, the doctors and drug companies will NEVER admit it. 1 in 300 children. That is an insaine amount of children that have been effected and therefore would be a HUGE lawsuit. We all know that it is all about money.
I am not saying that you shouldn't give your child the MMR vaccine because that is not my place. What I can say is that the veterinary practice where I work will not vaccinate if your animal has any type of infection (ear, skin, ect.) or isn't in 100% top health. I can also say that we have treated the animals that were vaccinated when they had only mild ailments and they got sicker. We had a dog that had all of her hair fall out and she broke out in infections all over her skin. It took us a year to get her back to "normal".
Just something to think about...
