- In 1983, American children were offered a maximum of 10 vaccines, today that number is 38. In that same time, the rate of Autism has gone from in in 10,000 to 1 in 50
- First world countries, like Denmark as just one example, give less than half as many vaccines to their children and have much lower rates of Autism.
Here's Denmark's schedule:
- In 1986, Congress indemnified vaccine makers from any liability from the damage vaccines may cause--the explosion in the number of vaccines given to children expanded after this law was passed
- The national vaccine injury compensation program has paid out over $2.7 billion in claims to children injured from vaccines—more than 3,300 cases where injury victims have been compensated
- Many of the cases where children received compensation included children with Autism, although the vaccine court has continually side-stepped this issue
- Of the 10 separate vaccines administered, only one vaccine—MMR—has ever been studied for its relationship to autism. Saying that all vaccines have been studied is simply a lie (please go to www.fourteenstudies.org to see the facts for yourself)
- The majority of parents of children with Autism believe vaccines were the primary trigger
- Here’s a great article explaining how the CDC continually misrepresents studies to “prove” vaccines don’t cause autism, despite the studies they publish coming nowhere close to doing that
- If the US wanted to honestly study this controversy, they could assess the autism rate amongst America’s unvaccinated children (estimated at 3-4% of the US population), which they have never done. Anecdotal evidence supports much lower rates of autism from unvaccinated children.
Many of the groups the media pejoratively refers to as “anti-vaccine” are in fact supportive of vaccines, and simply argue for a safer vaccine schedule by either returning to the 1983 schedule or copying a country like Denmark. The pharmaceutical industry’s influence over vaccine administration and scheduling in the US is deeply troubling and very different from other countries. As one egregious example, the former head of the CDC is now the President of Merck’s vaccine division.
The View made a great, entertaining choice in choosing Jenny McCarthy as a co-host. Her willingness to be honest about a controversial topic should be celebrated and debated by all Americans, not suppressed!
