I keep hearing about this "autism from flu shots" thing. I've been dismissing it because it seems so outlandish as an idea. But heck, three very intelligent and rational people have mentioned it to me in the past week (you being the latest, SOS), so maybe I should go a-googling!

Thank you for that info, HRW. I haven't quite worked in madatory vaccinations as part of my paper - BUT your thoughts on this did inspire to seek out another area of medication compliance that is less controversial. It seems that in some states people who have epilepsy are required to stay on anti-seizure medication if they want a driver's license. Not every person with epilepsy is going to have seizure and lose control of the car, but there is an elevated risk.

oops- must run duty calls - people get so bent out of shape when they can't use their computers. :frown:

Oh, sure, it was just an idea- didn't mean to push it on you. :smile:

oh, I still might use it - it's a great idea. I'm just too tired to work on that paper anymore. :yuck:

He usually gives us a chance to read his comments and submit a revision. If he comes down on me for not having enough data to back up that one point, it will be nice to have that mandatory vaccination info to give more support.

You should keep dismissing the idea that vaccine are link to autism. there is no evidence for it

Agreed this is not a proven cause-effect fact, but I'm not sure about dismissing it all together either. I believe the flu vaccine was altered--at least any way here in the U.S. In the meantime, authorities do not want people to be in fear of getting vaccinations, so have strived to keep controversies such as this out of public debate--there also is debate about mercury, and other vaccinations. In any event, according to The California Special Report May 2003 - Autism Cases Nearly Double in 4 Years, and...

Autism & Vaccines: A New Look At An Old Story

The connection between vaccination and autistic behavior, first reported in DPT: A Shot in the Dark (Coulter & Fisher, 1985) fifteen years ago and now being discussed in the medical literature, has finally entered the U.S. public arena after simmering for more than a decade...

In 1999, as states revealed skyrocketing rates of autism spectrum disorder among children and a congressional hearing was held in the U.S. Congress, the media began to explore the medical controversy in print and broadcast reports. At the heart of the debate stand a few courageous physicians whose independent, multi-disciplinary approach to investigating the possible biological mechanisms of vaccine-induced autism is serving as a counterweight to the steadfast denials by infectious disease specialists and government health officials defending current mass vaccination policies. As scientific evidence reveals that a portion of autism lies on the vaccine injury spectrum, parents determined to find help for their children are turning to doctors exploring diet and immune modulating therapies.

The Past Is Prologue

Parents of now grown vaccine injured children, who warned pediatricians and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) officials in the 1980’s that their once healthy, bright children regressed mentally, emotionally and physically after reacting to DPT vaccine with fever, high pitched screaming (encephalitic cry), collapse/shock, and seizures, are grieving with a new generation of parents whose healthy, bright children suddenly regress after DPT/DTaP, MMR, hepatitis B, polio, Hib and chicken pox vaccinations. The refusal two decades ago by vaccine manufacturers, government health agencies and medical organizations to seriously investigate reports of vaccine-associated brain injury and immune system dysfunction, including autistic behaviors, is reaping tragic consequences today.

Now parents of old and young vaccine injured children in the U.S. and Europe are joining with enlightened doctors in a rejection of the unscientific a priori assumption that a child’s mental, physical and emotional regression after vaccination is only coincidentally but not causally related to the vaccines recently given...
