Autism rates in unvaccinated children are so low they are hard to find. Further the CDC’s vaccine schedule has ballooned so fast, should we be looking at it and its effects on children’s health? Also, why has no vaccine has eve had a safety study on the childhood vaccine list?
Federal health authorities and mainstream medical groups emphatically dismiss any link between autism and vaccines, including the mercury-based preservative thimerosal. The 2004 Institute of Medicine panel on vaccination said they found no evidence of a link after an extensive review of published reviews and studies. While most childhood vaccines have not contained thimerosal since 1999 (which is 49.6 percent ethyl mercury by weight), the annual “flu shot” is preserved with mercury. This year the CDC began recommending flu shots for both pregnant women and children as young as 6 months old.
