Vaccines are being questioned by many people as a possible cause of autism spectrum disorders.
It is important to do your research and think very carefully before deciding whether you should vaccinate you child.
Sites such as Jenny McCarthy's Autism Organization - Generation Rescue- with prominently displayed "autism is reversible", by using "biomedical intervention". While it is debatable if autism is truly reversible, certainly the general points rec commended for biomedical intervention are reasonable:
Testing the child for problems - nutritional deficiencies, metabolic issues, bacterial and fungal infections, toxic chemicals. Having a plan of action, communications and regular followup.
If the child has a fungal infection for example, certainly it may make sense to treat this with a reputable doctor. However be wary of anyone claiming it will cure or reverse a child's autism.
Do vaccines cause autism? There have been studies in several countries that show eliminating the mercury and other ingredients that are commonly targeted as suspected causes of autism make no difference. In fact they had shown an increase in some cases.
This is not a definitive answer, there are still other factors, such as multiple shots at the same time, contaminants in the shots and causes that are unrelated to vaccines such as leaky gut syndrome, diets and yeast issues.
There must be more study by reputable agencies before we truly have an answer, but it is important to not only be a responsible parent, but also a responsible citizen. Choose carefully when it comes to vaccines, as you are not only impacting your child and your family, but you are also impacting the world as a whole. If your child is not vaccinated, he/she could contract serious illness. This is not only harmful to your family, but now your child is a carrier and could spread the disease to the general public. There are some people who are unable to be vaccinated, so they are already susceptible to these diseases.
