How to End the Autism Epidemic

Story at-a-glance -

  • In 1985, children routinely received 23 doses of seven vaccines: diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP), oral polio (OPV) and measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), and the autism rate was between 1 in 5,000 or 1 in 10,000 (depending on the data source)
  • Today, the CDC recommends that infants and children receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines by age 6, and there are estimates that 1 in 35 children develop autism
  • The National Childhood Vaccination Injury Act was passed in 1986, largely due to lawsuits over brain damage caused by DTP vaccine. The law gave vaccine manufacturers partial product liability protection when a CDC recommended childhood vaccine causes injury or death and, in 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court gave the vaccine industry a total liability shield
  • Many pediatricians are incentivized by insurance company bonuses to maintain high vaccination rates with all federally recommended vaccines. This hidden conflict of interest may place your child’s health in jeopardy
  • In depositions in a trial in Tennessee, scientists from the Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins University make it clear that children really should be screened before their first vaccination. If screening for individual susceptibility were done, many vulnerable children would be spared from being harmed by vaccines

Update - March, 2019 to add clarification on vaccine info and this comment by John Gregory,  staff analyst for internet website checker NewsGuard, who said, "Our review has found that medical science overwhelmingly rejects that causal link exists between vaccines and autism."
