Courts quietly confirm MMR Vaccine causes Autism

mmr vaccine Natural Health

The MMR vaccine… After decades of passionate debate, parents probably missed the repeated admissions by drug companies and governments alike that mmr vaccine does in fact cause autism. For concerned parents seeking the truth, it’s worth remembering that the exact same people who own the world’s drug companies also own America’s news outlets. Finding propaganda-free information has been difficult, until now.

Dr. Andrew Wakefield and The MMR Vaccine

At the center of the fifteen-year controversy is Dr. Andrew Wakefield of Austin, Texas. It was Dr. Wakefield that first publicized the link between stomach disorders and autism, and taking the findings one step further, the link between stomach disorders, autism and the Measles Mumps Rubella MMR vaccine.

For that discovery way back in 1996, and a subsequent research paper published by the doctor in 1998, Andrew Wakefield has found himself the victim of a world-wide smear campaign by drug corporations, governments and media companies. And while Dr. Wakefield has been persecuted and prosecuted to the extent of being unable to legally practice medicine because of his discovery, he has instead become a best-selling author, the founder of the Strategic Autism Initiative, and the Director of the Autism Media Channel.

But in recent months, courts, governments and vaccine manufacturers have quietly conceded the fact that the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR vaccine) most likely does cause autism and stomach diseases. Pharmaceutical companies have even gone so far as to pay out massive monetary awards, totaling in the millions, to the victims in an attempt to compensate them for damages and to buy their silence.

Grassroots outcry against MMR Vaccine

It was a regular reader named Kathleen that brought this ongoing story to our attention here at Whiteout Press. When asked what her connection to the vaccine-autism battle was, the young reader replied, “I just researched it for a school project a while back and then I stayed on top of it, until I couldn’t stand it anymore. I’m not a parent, nor do I belong to any organization – a mere outside observer.”

This reader isn’t alone. The news that vaccines cause autism has spread across the US despite a coordinated media black-out. She takes her concerns one step further explaining, “All I want is to see this information where the public can access it. I’ve looked everywhere, and no one gives this dire Wakefield situation even ONE small mention.” She goes on to give us another motivation for her activism, “In Washington State, where I’m from, vaccines have become mandatory for school children, which is very frightening!”

Landmark rulings

In December 2012, two landmark decisions were announced that confirmed Dr. Wakefield’s original concern that there is a link between the MMR vaccine, autism and stomach disorders. The news went mostly unreported, but independent outlets like The Liberty Beacon finally began publishing the groundbreaking news.

The website wrote last month, ‘In a recently published December 13, 2012 vaccine court ruling, hundreds of thousands of dollars were awarded to Ryan Mojabi, whose parents described how “MMR vaccines” caused a “severe and debilitating injury to his brain, diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).”’

The Liberty Beacon went on to describe the second court ruling that month, as well as similar previous verdicts writing, ‘Later the same month, the government suffered a second major defeat when young Emily Moller from Houston won compensation following vaccine-related brain injury that, once again, involved MMR vaccine and resulted in autism. The cases follow similar successful petitions in the Italian and US courts (including Hannah Poling, Bailey Banks, Misty Hyatt, Kienan Freeman, Valentino Bocca, and Julia Grimes) in which the governments conceded or the court ruled that MMR vaccine had caused brain injury. In turn, this injury led to an ASD diagnosis. MMR vaccine was the common denominator in these cases.’

The report echoes the exact same sentiment that our reader conveyed – Dr. Wakefield has had his career and reputation destroyed over the past 15 years, but has just been vindicated. The account reports, ‘While repeated studies from around the world confirmed Wakefield’s bowel disease in autistic children and his position that safety studies of the MMR vaccine are inadequate, Dr. Wakefield ’s career has been destroyed by false allegations. Despite this he continues to work tirelessly to help solve the autism catastrophe.’

The article from The Liberty Beacon closes with a direct quote from Dr. Wakefield himself to the independent grassroots outlet, “There can be very little doubt that vaccines can and do cause autism. In these children, the evidence for an adverse reaction involving brain injury following the MMR vaccine that progresses to an autism diagnosis is compelling. It’s now a question of the body count. The parents’ story was right all along. Governments must stop playing with words while children continue to be damaged. My hope is that recognition of the intestinal disease in these children will lead to the relief of their suffering. This is long, long overdue.”

Wakefield attacked again

Since the world has slowly become aware of the dangers of the MMR vaccine, parents around the globe have refused to get their children vaccinated. Earlier this year, the UK government singled out Dr. Wakefield and blamed him for the rising number of measles outbreaks in the country. In an April 2013 interview, he responded publicly.

The website published both the video, as well as the written transcript, of Dr. Wakefield’s public response. Below are some excerpts of the doctor’s remarks:

“The important thing to say is that back in 1996-1997 I was made aware of children developing autism, regressive autism, following exposure in many cases to the measles mumps rubella vaccine. Such was my concern about the safety of that vaccine that I went back and reviewed every safety study, every pre-licensing study of the MMR vaccine and other measles-containing vaccines before they were put into children and after. And I was appalled with the quality of that science. It really was totally below par and that has been reiterated by other authoritative sources since.

All I could do as a parent was to say, ‘what would I do for my child?’ That was the only honest answer I could give. My position on that has not changed. So, what happened subsequently? At that time the single measles vaccines were available freely on the National Health Service. Otherwise, I would not have suggested that option. So parents, if they were legitimately concerned about the safety of MMR could go and get the single vaccines. Six months later, the British government unilaterally withdrew the importation license for the single vaccines, therefore depriving parents of having these on the NHS; depriving parents who had legitimate concerns about the safety of MMR from a choice; denying them the opportunity to protect their children in the way that they saw fit.

And I was astonished by this and I said to Dr Elizabeth Miller of the Health Protection Agency, ‘why would you do this, if your principal concern is to protect children from serious infectious disease? Why would you remove an option from parents who are legitimately concerned about the safety of MMR?’ And her answer was extraordinary. She said to me, ‘if we allow parents the option of single vaccines, it would destroy our MMR program.’ In other words, her principal concern seemed to be full protection of the MMR program and not protection of children.”

Dr. Wakefield himself reiterates the final conclusion of the courts in various countries, but censored by the world’s media outlets saying:

“Now this question has been answered not by me, but by the courts, by the vaccine courts in Italy and in the United States of America where it appears that many children over the last thirty years have been awarded millions of dollars for the fact that they have been brain-damaged by MMR vaccine and other vaccines and that brain damage has led to autism. That is a fact.”

94 Comments on Courts quietly confirm MMR Vaccine causes Autism

  1. one question…if it is related, then how come ALL the children who got immunized aren't autistic? I have one typically developed child and two autistic children and all three were immunized…the report that this idiot is quoting was proven to have flawed research supporting it, did not account for all the variables, and the study that discredited it was performed by a very well respected medical center, and the findings were supported by other medical professionals. One other point-the mmr vaccine has been around since the 60's (I know, because it was new when I was a child), so then why is it only in the last decade grown to the proportions that we are seeing now? The old study did not take into account too many variables, and anyone that took a college statistics course can see that very clearly.

  2. Melissa Shera

    Really Fran? It's flawed because ALL children don't develop autism? We know without a doubt that additives in cigarettes cause cancer, but not all people who smoke cigarettes get cancer. Or what about identical twins, when one is affected by disease but the other is not, even though they share identical genetic information? The expression of illness and disease is a combination of both genetics and environment, and some kids will be more likely to be affected by the vaccines. So the problem is, why would government mandate something for all children that had the ability to injure some? For " herd immunity?" The good of the masses is more important than the good of one individual? By that reasoning, why would multiple firefighters risk their lives to save one child from a burning building? The point is, this thinking is flawed and not without serious harm.

  3. Carol Ann

    This is not a proven study and the article says that the vaccine courts have decided vaccines causes Autism. Huh? This is not a bonafide study or accurate reporting by any means.

  4. Chris Pipkin

    It would also be nice to see a graph of how the MMR vaccine has affected infant and child mortality rates over the last century. Not that I'm questioning the objectivity and legitimacy of this report. It is on the Internet, after all.

  5. Carol Ann

    The plaintiff's who were awarded judgements in these cases won judgements based on brain damage caused by other means. They happened to also have rec'd immun. and a dx of Autism in addition to other diagnoses. This is very misleading reporting.

  6. Glen Perkola

    They key here is the ones who do get autism from the MMR is the problem, why some don't who knows why they don't. As a grandfather with 2 grandsons with autism 1 who is 14 and is severe ands still in diapers. He was fine until 2 1/2 and he lost everything with his MMR. He us to laugh, play talk, now it's all gone. The other is 11 and he has moderate autism but can function somewwhat on his own.

  7. Peter Coe

    Perhaps Genome Technology can give us the answer… If MMR vaccinations are to blame perhaps there is a genetic trait carried by the afflicted children that makes them susceptible to injury by the vaccine. After all I do believe that what a vaccine does essentially is using weakened strains of the diseases to trick the body into developing antibodies capable of fighting off the actual diseases before they can over take the antibodies which in most cases a non vaccinated person cannot produce fast enough during the diseases onset. It would only make sense that there is a genetic trait that can cause the body to act in a negative manner and cause unintended injury. Identify this trait, and children can be prescreened for disposition to adverse effects. I would bet that for any vaccine in any given population there will be a certain percentage of unintended injury of some sort.

  8. Peter Coe

    Prescreening is not the only solution either, perhaps it might point to a way to alter the MMR vaccines genetic wiring to fix the issue thus avoiding moral issues with Genome Prescreening.

  9. Seriel D'Jinn

    Once again though children should only get vaccines one at a time like I and like all my friends as kids did. The complications get worse when we are given the multiple in one cocktail vaccines they have now to save time. Kids bodies are not always up to dealing with all those vaccines at once

  10. This issue is not a simple as whether or not to give vaccinations. I do believe that excessive amount of vaccinations, or a single toxic one, can increase probability of disease but it's not the only thing that does. The health of the recipient is also of concern. Someone that has a strong immune system and takes care of their diet, exercises, and is of strong mental health will be much less likely to be influenced by the toxicity of vaccinations. On the other hand, someone who is already compromised will be much more likely to have side effects.

    The fact is that while vaccinations do give antibodies to certain diseases, it is also highly toxic to the immune system in general. There are pros and cons to each side but rarely does one consider the health of the person getting the vaccine. Also, at what age, how frequent, the dosage, and also how the vaccination is given should be taken into consideration.

    There is another alternative to vaccinations and that is homeoprophylaxis. It is a natural, very safe way of preventing common diseases. There isn't as much literature on this as vaccinations but many people swear by it. It's worth checking out and then deciding for yourself.

    The most scary part of this debate is the government forcing parents and schools to make this decision when it is really up to the parents themselves on whether or not to vaccinate their kids. Instead of forcing the issue of vaccinations, what the government should be doing is educating and providing resources of what really impacts your health…. what you do day to day with your food, exercise, and stress.

  11. Jennifer Popkin

    Wakefield was a quack and this study was thoroughly debunked. I hate seeing things from this terrible bullshit site on my feed. Please stop telling people sensationalist lies and selling them snake oil.

  12. Liberty Middlesworth

    fran,your the idiot for thinking a vaccine is going to have the same reaction from everyone that gets it. toss aside the studies everyone focuses on and just look up the ingredients( and by the way there can be many manufacturers for the same vaccine, with varying ingredients , to answer your question as to why dont everyone get autism) and you cannot be honest at the same time sayingt hat mercury thats being injected along with formaldahyde is'nt gonna screw things up

  13. Liberty Middlesworth

    Doug Sawyer a wall of pissed off moms that are educating themselves and not taking it anymore.

  14. Liberty Middlesworth

    not to mention in multi-dose vials you can not regulate the amounts of each given . so no one dose from multi-dose vial is equal to the next out of same vial

  15. Carlo Montone

    Maybe then, you can explain how in a professional misconduct trial in 2007, Professor C Elliman (the Vaccine Topboy) admitted under the threat of perjury, that 'Vaccines are not entirely scientific and don't meet the golden standard of safety and efficacy'. It would seem largely, that the medical fraternity KNOW EXACTLY what is going on and the 'misleading reporting' you are complaining about, is coming from 'official sources' – not articles such as this.

    So take a dozen Vaccines and give your children them too – nobody cares about your cognitive dissonance.

  17. Carlo Montone

    'We will control the population with Vaccines' – Bill Gates. I'm sorry, but Pro-Vaccers are simply dumb as nails.

    They are the only people who can change that quote to: 'We will save the species with Vaccines'.

    They will happily put anyone they love in danger, talk guff on websites without once checking alternate sources and IF they check an alternate source, they are so riddled with pharma propaganda, they just start spewing Fox News (fake doctor) soundbites in retort. It's actually well known throughout the medical fraternity these things harm and it's taught in medical school. So carry on making arguments for fatcats in executive suites, who write in their own journals what their intentions really are!

  18. I just have to say that at least when I was growing up in the 1980's and very chronically ill with massive immunological problems, they were extremely slow and careful about giving me my childhood vaccines. And because I was so sick, there are some I never received.

    Really people. Obviously most of you don't have a background in research or epidemiology. Why don't you actually look at the Wakefield study that was retracted from the Lancet and see that it's flawed. He only looked at 8 patients. He was paid by a personal injury lawyer to do the study. Hmm… convenient. Before you start fear mongering get your FACTS straight.

  22. Christine DePierro Gacek

    Oh and you people who talk about mercury talk as though you have a background in biochemistry. Did you know the dangerous mercury is methyl mercury and that's not in vaccines….it's ethyl mercury in small amounts and has a very very very short half-life therefore it doesn't accumulate in the body….it's immediately voided. Also if your so concerned about mercury and aluminum in vaccines don't bother breathing bc you inhale more mercury via the air than what's in vaccines and don't bother nursing your babies because they consume more aluminum in a three feedings than what's in vaccines (that's not stopping me from nursing or vaccinating my son).

  23. Carlo Montone

    Tara Hepburn – haha.. I know.. why do any of these people have the internet is what's on my mind. They are so knowledgeable and so informed via the television, that one wonders why they need the web. It's not like they've been wrong about anything else.. ie New World Order, Banking Scam, WMD, Pearl Harbour, Sodium Fluoride, Royal Paedophile Rings, Chemtrails, GMO's blah blah.. oh.. hold on.

  24. Did you know that the FDA Safety Level for Aluminum Exposure on a brand new child is 20 micrograms? That's the FDA safety level meaning anything over 20 micrograms can cause severe neurological injury for an infant. Did you know that the shot given in the hospital before a baby is released, the Hepatitis B vaccine, contains 225 micrograms of aluminum? I bet you didn't know that. And you know what the problem is? Most parents don't know that." – Mary Tocco,

    Did you know that there are 25 mcg of MERCURY included in almost EVERY vaccine while the EPA sets the toxicity limit of mercury at .1 mcg?

  25. We can do this all day Fran but the question is: when are you going to pull your head out of your ass and stop abusing your child with toxic vaccines? You already have two autistic kids and you're still arguing in favor of vaccinating. What an irresponsible parent!!! I would hate to be one of your kids, you're an IDIOT!!

  26. Gina La Sasso

    Fran I have to agree with Liberty. Not everyone reacts the same way to everything. If your family has a family member, as mine does, that was a totally happy baby developing at the level they should be then that child had the MMR shot & totally regressed, then you too would be a believer that the MMR immunization shot should be done away with & children should be give separate shots, at different times as they grow. I read that it has something to do with the maturity level of the brain at the time of the MMR. Some children’s brains are just not mature enough to handle it. Some people are taking it to the extreme & not getting their children any immunization shots, in my opinion is not only a risk to the child but gambling with the lives of others. How hard is it to meet in the middle & just give one shot at a time?

  27. Angela Hernandez

    wow actually Liberty you sound like the idiot. There have been various studies around the globe of children immunized and none have found that it causes autism. What it does cause is your child not get ill. However NOT immunizing your children is causing whooping cough and many other illnesses to be making a huge come back, killing infants that have not had a chance to receive all of their shots. NOW that is a fact

  28. Kim Cardwell

    Autism has increased over the last couple decades. I myself do not have children with autism, but both my kiddos have quirky things that I often wonder bout. My older son is spacey a lot, he has asthma and allergies, and is very forgetful. My younger son is moody and temperamental. Makes me wonder if they'd be any different had they not had vaccines.

  29. Linda Kolesar Donovan

    I always said the vaccine either being made or stored could have been handled improperly! People are not always truthful or responsible!

  30. Carlo Montone

    Angela Hernandez I like the way you pro-Vaccers are all ignoring my question regarding the damning court case. It actually shows, that when people are on the inside and have good information from the inside, the only thing you pro Vaccers can do, is quote government websites that are funded by Big Pharma. All those drugs that have been recalled over the years have been FDA approved in their time. Do you still use them?

  31. Carlo Montone

    Niles Andrew Ingalls – It's really simple Niles. Lookup the case? You will find the internet is a wonderful thing, if you weren't so up your arse and needed it spoon-feeding every time. A doctor colleague of mine attended the hearing. So good luck trying to rubbish what I am saying.

  32. Carlo Montone

    Niles Andrew Ingalls – Look it up. Repeating the fact you are incapable of doing research, isn't winning you brownie points.

  33. Carlo Montone

    Niles Andrew Ingalls Oh and by the way – even Harvard conducted a study about Fluoride recently. It is an intellect suppressant, it is a toxic waste that causes Cancer and guess what?… you naysayers and supporters of fluoride were wrong again. You shamefully backed the medical and dental fraternity that time too.

    If you need a source, think about typing 'Harvard Study + Fluoride' into google. It's a really neat search engine that helps you find things.

  34. Carlo Montone

    Niles Andrew Ingalls – Also the CDC's own website is warning that at least 30 million people are in danger of Cancer after the Polio Vaccines in the 50's. Guess what?.. they were sold as 'life-savers' as well. 30 million is a conservative media estimate btw – it's more likely all of America is affected. But hey, don't expect the truth from media, they are funded by pharma and the banks. The very people profiting from mass vaccinations.

  35. Frank Emkey

    For all you clowns fixated on the continuing down the same ole road of learning disabled children by way of ANCIENT practices, the point behind all of this is the LACK OF TRUE INFORMED CONSENT. If the program is all that necessary here in 2013, they can either improve their products or find another MODERN approach to disease prevention. Thinking outside the box is a requirement, which explains why we're where we are with this atrocity.

  36. Frank Emkey

    Fran, DUH DUH DUH!!! 3 major variables here… individual biochemestry, immune resistance level when injected (it does fluctuate), ingredient fluctuation (as evidenced by "bad batches" and why health care provider are required to document the lot # of all shots given). If you think this is perfect science, GET REAL! As for the studies, GET REAL again. Science has long been for sale to the highest bidder which means science is not science at all. Independent thinking, and the desire to do a little bit of research is all that is needed here. Being that most lack both, here we are.

  37. Frank Emkey

    Yeah, you go, girl. Keep going back to your ped. and getting your gov. recommended dose of UNNATURAL antigens, heavy metals, carcinogens injected into your lil guy. BTW, your ideas of heavy metal exposure and excretion are erroneous. The only thing more invasive than an IM injection is an IV. Airborne and GI exposures are NATURAL, and yes, exposure via these routes do allow for some excretion. Appropriate lab testing confirm that these children DO NOT excrete this crap from their bodies. And furthermore, many of us including myself does have a background in research, work in the medical field, and have learned the hard way. Good luck placing the well being of your son in the hands of the Fed Gov.

  38. Aura Willow Hazel

    The entire theory was written by a fraudulent scumbag who ADMITTED he lied, these MMR mercury autism myths are dangerous they result in people trying dangerous treatments such as chelation. Please refrain from peddling myths which endanger autistic kids.

  39. Aura Willow Hazel

    Carlo Montone name me any medicine that is completely effacious across the board, even ASPARIN cannot claim that, every medication may influence people differently however the autism vaccine link is a scientific joke.

  40. Aura Willow Hazel

    actually DIAGNOSIS has, mainly because of better training in identifying such conditions in recent years.

  41. Toni Berkshire

    Fran, just answer one question: why don't ALL people who smoke get cancer? Cigarettes are proven to cause cancer by many, many studies. Variables are a part of life. Perhaps your "typically developed child" had a better immune system than your other two children at the time of their immunizations. Do you have a better theory as to what caused their autism? If not immunizations, have you seen the correlation between glyphosate and autism? I think the real problem here is we're being poisoned, plain and simple whether it from vaccines, chemicals, the processed food we eat, or a combination of all. I'll provide the link to the glyphosate and autism graph–please just look at it. I'm not against anyone here, I just want people to be informed, and ask questions.

  42. Frank Emkey

    When the levee breaks, doctors are permitted to acknowledge, and the media reports the truth, watch the brainwashed masses harmoniously change their tune.

  43. Christina Wiseman

    Autism has been linked to genetics as well. Not all children who have autism have not had MMR. This doctor has been dis-created again again. The court rulings as of recent were because of the brain injuries not because of the autism dx.

  44. Christina Wiseman

    Fran you are spot no my boys have not been immunized and hello both are on the spectrum.

  45. really Christine Wakefield's study was retrospective from memory and of course not designed as the last word which is why he went on to do many more valid studies – 18 from memory – do you want to discuss those perfectly valid ones. So a lawyer alerted him to what was going on and then he started to research! So… The mercury in thimerosal is in conjunction with aliminimium which makes it much more lethal and effective so your comments on this are void. Yes I do know research well and the flawed claims I see are pretty much all the pro vaccine stuff = makes you wonder why I should hope

  46. Christine DePierro Gacek you posted one of the best anti-vaccine responses, backed up by evidence and clear logic, I've ever seen in Facebook comments.

    For others, here is the link to the American Academy of Pediatrics site she mentioned about the Wakefield studies in particular:

    He CLEARLY did unethical and bad science, as outlined in the link above. Here is a link to one of his full papers to read for yourself. Always cite or link to sources so that original data and arguments can be criticized. "Just google it", emotional appeals, and anecdote are not data:

  47. Frank Emkey

    Dismissing logic off as anti-vacs is the typical cop-out. Few are even anti-vacs, but rather pro informed consent and anti-deception. To the contrary, talking to brainwashed herd is like talking to the Great Wall of China. Doesn't change the truth.

  48. Keith Schifano

    The website is not It states no sources either. Anyone could have posted this information. Vaccines causing autism was disproved years ago. Unfortunately, news programs usually only focus on the first story they report so as not to look as unreliable to the public. The quack scientist who did this study was fined and had to refute his findinds for falsifying information. Vaccines do not cause autism. It is almost certainly genetic. I work with individuals with autism and they all have an uncle, aunt, or other family member with some form or other of autism. If you research it for yourself in a book or a legitimate website, you can find the real truth. Or if you happen to take microbiology or other classes related to the healthcare field you can discover it as well.

  49. Dr. Elizabeth Miller should not even be allowed to practice medicine after making a B.S. statement like she did about having the right to decide which shots you want your children to have. It seems to me that her agenda is obvious, to keep making the MMR shot mandatory regardless of the parents concerns. As a parent of 2 of my 4 children being diagnosed with Autism and Asbergers Syndrome, I am outraged that the manufacturers of the shot have had the green light to dispense this drug to our children without knowing the harmful results the medicine has been causing. This is typical of the Pharmaceutical companies to be able to make Billions of dollars as well as having the FDA approve their drugs without the proper research being done on so many of the Pharmaceuticals that are given the OK to be dispensed to so many people all over the world. By the time someone finds out the harmful effects of the drugs they have already made so many Billions of dollars off of the drugs that they are more than happy to pay out a few Million to the law firms that bring class action lawsuits against them. This happens time and time again and it's absolutely sickening. I have to watch both of my boys go through the depression about being different and not having friends and worry about being alone all their lives because they are different and they cannot find a girl who understands why they are the way they are. Anyone else who is experiencing these sorts of things with their children who have been diagnosed with these conditions and wants to get a lawyer to go after these SOB's , please let me know. THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO GET AWAY WITH THIS! You can reach me at I hope to hear from all of those who have been dealing with these kinds of concerns with their children who have been affected.

  50. Rose Riccabona-Iyer

    If your child is vaccinated…my un-vaccinated child is at risk…not yours. Don't judge us until you watch your child's develop Autism. My son went from drawing pictures to scribbling and talking to being non-verbal for 6 months. I waited until he was 2 to give him MMR because of the questions surrounding it…now I regret giving him the MMR. I watched the life drain from my son's eyes and I live with that everyday. Don't judge us…your child is not at risk if it's vaccinated. BTW…most Autistic children are vaccinated…that's why they have Autism.

  51. David Freels

    No body know's what they're giving our children, they just say they have to have it and big brother's in controllcontroll

  52. Rose Riccabona-Iyer

    Because it's not just about the vaccinations…it's about all of the chemicals they are pumping into us. Vaccines, GMO's, pollution in the air, etc. Our body can only take so much…perhaps one of your children ate less processed foods than the impacted children. We aren't asking for money…or blame…we are asking for honesty. We finally get the honesty and we people that know and understand that this is a contributing factor, are getting verbally beaten. My niece got Autism from MMR…years ago the gov. had a website that listed the amount of mercury your batch had in it. My Sister looked her daughter and son's up and you know what she found? That their batches had extremely high levels of mercury…but different levels. Her son…had 75% more than a safe amount (low impact Autism) and her daughter had almost 200% more than a safe amount (highly impacted and non verbal until 1st grade…attending a special school for Autistic children). GUESS WHAT? The website was taken down…the gov. no longer allows us to have this information. I'm not an ANTI-VAXER…I'm a parent that watched my child change overnight. Don't judge.

  53. Beverly Vittetoe

    I think diet is a major factor in problems like this. We're paying for all the garbage in processed food!

  54. Craig Andrews

    It seems the jury is still out but please do not forget that diseases like Small Pox and Polio are pretty much gone. These disease did and can kill or maime millions. I remember getting my pink spoon full of Polio vaccine. I didn't get Polio and I don't have Autism.

  55. Tracy King

    The court decisions never actually state that the MMR vaccine caused autism. It's much more complicated than this article, and the one upon which it is based, states.

  56. Brittany Schroeder responsible isn't the word, Not doing your own research is the correct explanation for you.Your kid is going to get mine sick because you trust people to inject your child with a substance you and the doctors have no clue of what it really is. See you can bash people for making choices if that's what makes u feel better. At least some of us like to search for answers and not just except the ones that are givin. Oh and in your rant of lower consciousness, I would like to correct you on one thing. There is massive amounts of proof showing that the vaccinations cause awful problems to the ginny pigs like your child, which there is actually no evidence to prove a vaccine has ever helped. I'm sure you gave your children fluoride too huh? lol

  57. Rebecca Lane

    Good grief, still with this fake-science BS?? I cannot believe people still reject the absolute lack of scientific evidence linking vaccines with autism. Stop diverting attention from actual research into autism! Your claims are morally indefensible.

  58. Have given literally hundreds of these shots and have had no established (or even hinted at)cases from my patients, whom I have known for years afterwards.

  59. Karen MacCollom Theoktisto

    Vaccines are very safe. This study was not scientifically valid. Children can diagnosed by 4-6 months with autism many many months prior to MMR. Do your research

    just because it or ever on before doesn't mean that the vaccines don't cause it idiots I know my son got it from it

    Finally the truth comes out. I am now close to 50 and as a very young child, after receiving the MMR vaccine, I started to have seizures one every hour where I lost upper body control and went into a trans like state, almost like a child with Autism. I was hospitalized for 2 1/2 months and monitored by many neurosurgeons over several years and remember my parents being told I had severe brain damage (retardation), I was going to die, and/or epilepsy. None of any of those diagnoses were true. They never really diagnosed the problem after extensive testing. Yet there was definitely a serious problem going on.They weren't sure what it was. However my parents took me out of the hospital, and after a couple of years later and many medications I was fortunate to grow out of it (around the age of 7). I stopped taking all medications and was fine. Back then no one ever questioned doctors like they do today. When I started to have my own children and Autism was talked about more frequently, I still chose to have my children vaccinated with individual shots (measles one visit, mumps another visit and so on). Along with those vaccinations came paperwork that my pediatrician made you sign stating the effects of what could happen (even death). However, I felt confident that by giving my healthy children the vaccines separately the effects would be minimal, regardless if my doctor was annoyed by my decision. Government and the drug companies worry more about the masses than they do about a few. I'm not surprised at all by there responses or the media on this. I always felt in the back of my mind that the vaccines I was given caused the medical mystery then. After reading the above, I finally have some confirmation as to what happened. Don't try to critique what I've said, I know what happened to me 45 years ago. I'm also in the medical field and am aware of what happens when vaccines are given. I personally feel that if given vaccines separately instead of together the risks are less. I also feel that children should be vaccinated because if you were to see a child get any of the diseases that these vaccines protect you against and witness the suffering that comes with it, is worse. Everybody's body chemistry and DNA is different and you just hope and pray your child will be ok at the end of the day. I feel for all those parents of autistic children.

  62. also fran… I read somewhere (I'm sure it was also a flawed study), but they are thinking that teething hormones/vaccines might have something to do wtih it. As if… certain hormones may "open" the brain to the vaccine and create the problems. I am sorry for your situation, although I'm certain you are happy with your children. Just because it doesn't hurt everyone, doesn't mean it isn't hurting some. With your logic… everyone that eats peanuts should have an allergic reaction. Of course, only some people are allergic… we are all wired differently, Jjust because children come from the same parents doesn't mean their genes didn't get arranged in a unique manner.

  63. Well, the only problem with that is an outbreak is able to occur if less than a fixed % of the population receives vaccinations. It's a simple mathematical model in differential calculus that exploits the downside to exponential growth. In fact allowing the decision to fall on the parents turns this problem into one of game theory. Some parents will not want vaccinations and thus will not let their children have them. Others will want them and thus have their children get them. The most likely outcome is that there would be a half and half rather than all for one or the other. If only half are vaccinated, MMR could spread like wildfire with fatality rates near 17% AND the vaccinated half will still have chance occurrences of autism. So really it is matter of which seems more logical.
    Besides, I have looked all over for evidence of this claim. As it stands the research done to verify this is still fraudulent. And for most of you who are not familiar with medical research standards, PLEASE READ The Best American Science and Natural Writing 2011 article titled Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science that was also published in the Atlantic.

  64. The problem is that if you don't vaccinate, you put other people (those with compromised immune systems that can't get vaccinated and rely on others doing the right thing) at risk of death. So you shouldn't get to choose whether or not to possibly kill another kid.

  65. Carlo Montone That's not quite what he said, he said that there were no double blind placebo controlled studies done. If there were it would have constituted child abuse by leaving some children unprotected to see if they contracted any illness.
    Do do a study that has the real potential of harming the control group is close to malpractice!
