Vaccination and Autism

An article published in Medscape Sept 3, 2008 examines the issue about the link between measles, mumps, and rubella(MRR) vaccine and autism. The article reports on a study in the Public Library of Science that “examined measles virus RNA in the bowel after vaccination in children with GI disorders and autism and in children with GI disorders alone.” The results: “no association between vaccination with the (MMR) vaccine and autism spectrum disorders with gastrointestinal (GI) disturbances.”

Now compare that to Wakefield’s Study. In Wakefield’s 2002 study, researchers found measles in 75 of 91 biopsies from autistic children with GI inflammation, and in only 5 of 70 samples from non-autistic children (Uhlmann, et al. Mol Pathol. 2002 Apr;55(2):84-90). The children with autism in the 2002 study developed gastrointestinal symptoms and autistic regression after the MMR vaccine.

So many moms say that their child got sick after receiving MMR vaccine. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. investigates the government cover-up of a mercury/autism scandal. He wrote an article in the Rolling Stone magazine called “Deadly Immunity.”
