Exploring The Autism/Vaccination Link
December 4, 2012 by Bob Livingston
Over the past 30 years, the number of diagnosed autism spectrum disorders has exploded. Where once only one in 10,000 children was affected, now it’s one in 88. This year, as many as 46,000 children will be diagnosed with ASD. That’s more than will be diagnosed with pediatric AIDS, juvenile diabetes and childhood cancer combined.
During a Nov. 29 hearing, Representative Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, asked a question of representatives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health that thousands of parents have been asking for decades: “Does autism predate all vaccines? In other words, was there autism before vaccines?”
The answer from the “experts” was they weren’t sure. That’s because vaccinations have not been adequately investigated as a potential contributing factor for the rising ASD rates.
American children are the most vaccinated in the world, yet the United States ranks 34th in infant mortality. African children were autism-free prior to the introduction of vaccines. Much of the CDC’s research on autism was conducted by Poul Thorsen, who has been indicted for defrauding the CDC and remains in Denmark awaiting extradition to the United States.

Vaccinations are a boon to the medical-industrial complex, but they are leaving children and adults with debilitating injuries — or worse.
