Question?: Pdd Nos Symptoms

George asks…

Poll: Do you think vaccines cause or contribute to autism?

I’m curious to see what people really think.

admin answers:

No i dont believe they do whatsoever! I think parents are just being over cautious and flipping out for no reason. Vaccines have been around for ages, and now they are trying to say that it causes autisim? I dont think so. Dont you think there would have been more causes of that if it was actually linked to the vaccines. Its the same vaccine schedule, its not like the vaccines have changed much in the last 50 years.

Autism and autism spectrum disorders are complex neurodevelopmental disorders.Heritability contributes about 90% of the risk of a child developing autism, but the genetics of autism are complex and typically it is unclear which genes are responsible.Many other causes have been proposed, such as exposure of children to vaccines; these proposals are controversial and the vaccine hypotheses have no convincing scientific evidence.

Autism is a condition involving abnormalities of brain development and behavior which manifests itself before a child is three years old and has a steady course with no remission. It is characterized by impairments in social interaction and communication, as well as restricted and repetitive behavior. It is part of a larger family called the autism spectrum disorders (ASD) or pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), which include closely related syndromes such as Asperger syndrome and PDD-NOS. This article uses autism to denote the classic autistic disorder and ASD to denote the wider family.

Autism’s theory of causation is still incomplete. It has long been presumed that there is a common cause at the genetic, cognitive, and neural levels for autism’s characteristic triad of symptoms. However,here is increasing suspicion among researchers that autism does not have a single cause, but is instead a complex disorder with a set of core aspects that have distinct causes. Although these distinct causes have been hypothesized to often co-occur, it has also been suggested that the correlation between the causes has been exaggerated.The number of people known to have autism has increased dramatically since the 1980s, at least partly due to changes in diagnostic practice; it is unknown whether prevalence has increased as well. An increase in prevalence would suggest directing more attention and funding toward changing environmental factors instead of continuing to focus on genetics.

The consensus among mainstream autism researchers is that genetic factors predominate, but some are concerned, as one anonymous researcher put it, that “geneticists are running the show, and ignoring the environmental aspects.”Environmental factors that have been claimed to contribute to autism or exacerbate its symptoms, or may be important to consider in future research, include certain foods, infectious disease, heavy metals, solvents, diesel exhaust, PCBs, phthalates and phenols used in plastic products, pesticides, brominated flame retardants, alcohol, smoking, illicit drugs, and vaccines. Among these factors, vaccines have attracted much attention, as parents may first become aware of autistic symptoms in their child around the time of a routine vaccination, and parental concern about vaccines has led to a decreasing uptake of childhood immunizations and an increasing likelihood of measles outbreaks. However, as described in Mercury and MMR vaccine below, there is overwhelming scientific evidence showing no causal association between the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine and autism, and there is no scientific evidence that the vaccine preservative thiomersal helps cause autism.

In 2007 the National Institutes of Health announced an Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) research program to find the causes of autism and identify new treatments for the disorder. Initial recipients are focusing on genetic factors, brain imaging, brain chemicals and functions including mirror neurons, effect on early parent-child behavior on autism, and learning in autistic children.

I am a mother of a 12 month old boy… Who is up to date on all his vaccines so far. And he will continue to get all his vaccinations. As so will any other children i should have. Im sorry but i wouldnt take the risk of my child actually contracting one of those disease just because some parents believe that it may be linked to autisim. Sorry, i would rather have my child vaccinated.

Question?: What Is Autism Caused By

Laura asks…

Do you think autism is caused by vaccines?

I’ve heard a lot of rumors that autism is caused by vaccines. Do you think this is true? What do you think is or may be some of the reasons for the rising numbers of people with autism?

admin answers:

Vaccines definitely cause autism.
Many of the posters here have no idea what they are talking about and please don’t take my word for anything. I will provide a few links to get you started if you really want to research it.
Maybe its the mmr,maybe the hep b or maybe the flu vaccine. Go here for some inf on the vaccine story.

Each vaccine examined alone is quite a different thing than having 6-9 different injected into an infant bypassing their immune system is quite another.

The vaccine schedule in currently in place is insane.

They are full of mercury,(this despite the idiotic attempt to say vaccines no longer have mercury in them) Sidebar: why lie about removing it if its so safe?

They contain aluminum(a known neurotoxin)

Aborted human fetal tissue-yea that’s right,
formaldehyde and a host of other stuff you don’t even want to know about. Go the the science section here for the complete list. Http://www.vaclib.org/

Studies dismissing this are produced/funded by the manufactures of the vaccines to hide this fact.
Ignorant people buy it because they want to believe vaccines are safe.
The parents and doctors of thousands of vaccine injured children beg to differ.

Merck funded the last one. Don’t believe a word of it. It’s propaganda to cover there sorry asses from another costly VIOX type of disaster.
The most recent attempt to explain away the rise of autism is a complete joke. It isn’t funny though when the press just regurgatates any crap they are fed without even bothering to read it or fact check it. It’s shameful
