Autism Research and Vaccination Are Still Debated

Autism Research and Vaccination Are Still Debated

Everyone is talking about the latest research studies that show that vaccines do not cause autism. It has been my belief that my son’s vaccinations did not cause his autism. He showed signs of autism as a baby. However, I do believe that there are cases that a child with a prior medical condition can be adversely affected by vaccines, leading to autism symptoms.

I’m not the only one that believes this. 9 year old Hannah Poling was just awarded 1.5 million dollars plus $500,000 a year to her family to cover their daughter’s care. This was awarded because it was proved that Hannah’s prior condition, a mitochondrial disorder, increases her risks for vaccination injury.

I believe that this is still a heatedly debated topic, because no one wants to admit they are wrong or the other side might be right. As far as I am concerned, both are right and wrong. I think that vaccines can harm children with poor immune systems or an underlying medical problem. I also believe that it is these children that are commonly “Cured,” which leaves parents like me wondering what we aren’t doing right to “cure” our child.

I don’t think I am doing anything wrong. The reason that those “cures” are not working is because my son wasn’t injured by vaccines or allergies. He is autistic. He was born on the spectrum. Nutritional supplements have helped, but they weren’t a cure. Therapy has helped, but they are not a cure. There will be no miraculous cure for my son.

The best way I can help my son is to keep doing what I am doing. Therapy, understanding of his strengths and weaknesses, repetitive work to learn skills, and love are what helps him. He continues to make progress. He is capable of learning a lot, he just needs me to keep teaching him. There’s no telling what he will be like in a year, 2 years, 5 years, or even 10 years from now. The only limits are the ones he sets on himself.

  • There are a number of medical issues that can cause autistic symptoms – the difficulty is in getting them diagnosed accurately so they can be treated.

    If a child has a toxic buildup of heavy metals in his system because his system isn’t processing them properly and removing those metals also clears up his neurological symptoms, then that should have been his primary diagnosis. The autistic symptoms would be a secondary, although real, problem.

    Depending on the doctor’s level of success in treating the primary issue, the autism may lessen or go away altogether.

  • [...] are given a lot of shots at one time. I have said this before, and still strongly believe, that the vaccine schedule needs to be changed. I believe that it would reduce the incidents of harm if children are not given [...]
