Measles Vaccine Not To Be Blamed For Autism

>> Friday, February 13, 2009

News this morning from the Associated Press that the measles vaccine cannot be blamed for autism. Due to backed scientific evidence, the courts just couldn't justify that vaccines do in fact cause autism. In order for the lawyers and families to win, they had to directly prove that it was in fact that thimserosal that caused autism in the first place. There was a reported 5,300 claims filed since 2001. You can read about the article here.

Both of my boys didn't receive shots until after 2001 in August when my oldest one was born. So therefore I am not sure if the vaccines that they had caused their autism, but in my heart, I think that it was totally genetic and partially environmental. The overload of colors I consumed while pregnant could have been a possibility as well.
