The link between autism and vaccinations has been discussed in the medical literature since early in the 20th century – before there was even a name for this condition. It had been given various titles such as post-vaccinal encephalitis but the description and symptoms described can fit into what we call today – the Autistic Spectrum.
Anyone who thinks that the vaccine-autism link began and ended with Dr Andrew Wakefield needs to do more research.
This link has been around for over 100 years now and with a rate today of 1 child in 88 – up from 1 child in 10,000 just 20 years ago, it is time to stop obfuscating and start looking at what is causing this epidemic in our children and do something to stop it!
