Re: Other parents insight on Immunizations and the link to Autism
I first started questioning immunization because a relative on my husband's side was pretty sure that immunization was the cause of autism in their two sons. At that time they had three sons the first two were autistic and got immunized. The 3rd one was normal and healthy and not immunized.
So I decided to start investigating myself. I looked online and read up what the CDC had to say concerning their immunization and the ingredients in them. I looked at a site for reporting side affects to immunizations. I was very concerned by what I read, and that is when I decided to investigate safer alternatives. The alternative I decided to take was not have my children immunized at all.
When my middle child was born and they wanted to inject her with the Hepatitis B vaccine, I asked them why and they said that it protects her. Since I didn't have Hepatitis B and I'm sure an infant can't have sex, I didn't understand and they couldn't explain it to me.
My two youngest children were not immunized but my youngest child has is displaying mild autistic behaviors. Even though that is the case, my gut feeling tells me that if I would have had her immunized she would be full-fledged autistic. My youngest nephew has been diagnosed with autism also, even though he did not get his immunization shots. His autism is mild compared to his older brothers.
I think that the CDC does not require you to immunize your child if they have side affects to the immunization shots. Also if the child has a cold, or is sick they recommend you not to immunize your child at that time. That is what I got out from my research. I think everyone should research on their own. I even look up prescription medicine to see how safe they actually are.
