Autism Vs Vaccines

Satisfactory Essays
In a world that is continuously evolving, we’ve come a long way from epidemic and rampant diseases. From the Black Plague to the swine flu scare in 2009, diseases have always existed but luckily vaccines were created to mitigate or even eradicate them. A vaccine is a product that produces immunity from a disease and can be administered through needle injections, by mouth, or by aerosol. The first vaccines came out around the late 18th century to early 19th century with the invention of smallpox vaccines. Unfortunately, not everyone agrees with vaccines, much less mandating all vaccine.

Today, in some areas of the United States more than 30 vaccines are being given to young children before the age of 3. When you inject so much mercury and so much other toxic material directly into the bloodstreams of vulnerable young children, bad stuff is bound to happen. The evidence linking vaccines and autism continues to mount, and yet the pharmaceutical establishment continues to vigorously deny that there could possibly be any link between the two. In 2000 and 2002, the autism estimate was about 1 in 150 children. Two years later 1 in 125 8-year-olds had autism. In 2006, the number was 1 in 110, and the newest data—from 2008—suggests 1 in 88 children have autism” (Synder).
