Autism Watch: 2007

Autism, Vaccines and Headlines

Posted on: March 6, 2008

Turn on the news right now, and you’ll probably hear about it. CNN had a great piece about autism and the story of Hannah Poling and her family. Here’s a link to a blog about it: CNN.com: Paging Dr. Gupta.

Another article, this one from FOXNews.com: Georgia Girl, 9, Helps Link Vaccines to Autism Cause.

And perhaps my favorite one of the day, from Couric & Co., CBSNews: Autism: Why the Debate Rages. If you read no other article, read this one. Share it.

Yes, there’s no definitive proof saying “vaccines cause autism.” However, this latest story has got to give people pause. Me? I think children with autism are genetically pre-disposed and vaccines contribute to their autism. At this point, how much longer can it take before it’s pure common sense to re-visit the vaccine schedule to space it out longer and remove any toxins from it? And to remove thimerasol, an unnecessary preservative, from flu shots and other vaccines? (It’s already mainly out of typical childhood vaccines, but those are not the only vaccines, a common misconception.) With the amount of concern, even without proof, why can’t things be changed?

I know, a mind-boggling, head-banging trillion dollar question.
