Vaccines January 16, 2011

Ok.  I’m not going to go much into this.  But I am speaking as a person who works with kids with autism, has a degree in it, and who has done much research into the vaccine controversy, which, in my opinion, should not be a controversy at all.  It seems like there has been a lot in the news lately about vaccines.  Should you vaccinate or not?  Do they cause autism or not?  I just have one thing to say:

Vaccines have not been proven to cause autism.  Not even a small link has been made.  The study that Andrew Wakefield conducted in the late ’90s that supposedly linked vaccines and autism was retracted from publication, and Mr. Wakefield was stripped of his medical license.  His “research” was poor and the conclusions he made were not proven.  They were made up.

So, I encourage everyone out there to please do research into the theoretical causes of autism and really pay attention to who is conducting the studies, and how well the research has been conducted.  Just please do the research.  And googling something is not the same as research.

I have said my peace.
