i've always been skeptical of this, when my husband and i watched this break on the news the other night, i told him i always wondered what hard evidence they had that linked autism to immunizations..autism is a mystery, i hope there is a cure or a way to prevent this some day..of the friends i know whose children are affected, one said the MMR vaccine did worry her, i don't know if she refused the shot or not, her DS is now 9 or 10.
Another skeptic here.
I think the only good thing that came out of this is that more people are researching the vaccinations their kids get. There are so many more than when we were young (yes, I know there are more diseases too).
i agree, a doctor's opinion on CNN was similar, that health risks assoicated with NOT vaccinating were far greater than the chances of autism...something i caught this morning had to do with gaps between having children, that a child born less than two years apart from an older sibling being at greater risk perhaps..i do think autism is something that happens in utero, not a learned behavior or influence outside, no evidence to back up that hunch, LOL.
