vaccineneedledrip 263x164 Measles Mumps Rubella Vaccine Finally Linked to Autism in Multiple Court CasesThanks to the tireless work of the ever-so controversial Dr. Andrew Wakefield who first proposed that there was a link between stomach disorders and autism, and more specifically the measles-mumps-rubella vaccination (MMR vaccine) and autism, a court has finally admitted that the scientific evidence is sufficient enough to prove that a vaccination which is required in most states for children to enter school could cause autism.

Autism is marked by three pronounced challenges for children, including delays in social development, language development and behavior. Autism can be extreme or mild, but Wakefield’s evidence – a body of work he has been working on since before 2006 – shows that the number of cases has been increasing ever since the vaccine was administered to infants with more frequency. Many people even noticed symptoms of the vaccine shortly after it was administered to their child, when prior to being given MMR, their child showed no signs of autism.

Finally courts, pharmaceutical companies, and the US government are being held to the fire – paying out millions in settlement fees to parents of children with autism. Perhaps the sheer numbers of children developing this disorder were too hard to deny – even after doctors like Wakefield were clearly showing evidence that these vaccines were harmful.

Autism affects more children than childhood cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined, and the prevalence of the disease is rising. In just the last decade, the number of children who have been diagnosed on the autism spectrum has nearly doubled. The millions that have been paid out to families has been an attempt to compensate them for their tribulations, but quite probably to silence the growing alarm surrounding this commonly prescribed practice, of vaccinating children.

Clinical evidence involving 12 patients has proven that MMR can cause inflammatory bowel disorders and regressive development disorders which could lead to autism. It is possible that the MMR vaccine causes autism when children repeatedly develop bowel infections, harming their gut flora beyond repair. Though the study concludes no [direct] connection was found.

In just one of the most recent court cases, the Federal Court responsible for overseeing Injury Compensation, also known as ‘vaccine court’ has awarded two children millions for ‘pain and suffering’ and to facilitate their life long care due to the disorder that was caused by receiving the vaccine.

The court found that an MMR vaccine administered between 2003 and 2005 “caused severe and debilitating injury to his brain, described as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).”

    Thanks for this info….I am looking at Fudenbergs work and it’s stunning. More ammo for my stockkpile on this vaccine quackery.

  • Free People

    Here’s a link with supporting peer-reviewed studies showing the connection between vaccines and Autism.
    Vaccines don’t cause Autism, they cause demyelination, which eats the myelin sheath, paving the way for neurological damage to occur…..and THAT causes Autism.

    The more we know!…spread the word please.

    • Are you all tools?

      How the hell can you rant on and on about vaccines causing autism then you literally say “vaccines don’t cause autism?” Your statement says vaccines indirectly possibly cause autism. Make up your brain dead mind.

    If you’re referring to one of the best docotrs ever, Andrew Blakefield, you are so full of it I can smell you from here. UGH..POS Troll!
    What’s falsified is the ‘efficacy’ of killer vaccines.

    • Sarah_Ireland

      I think you’ll find his name is actually Andrew Wakefield – how embarrassing!!

      • Free People

        Yes, correct, it’s Andrew Wakefield..my apologies to the great Doctor..Always get his last name mixed up.

  • Free People

    Link not valid.

  • Free People

    I agree with you. this is Quack science of the highest order. Nothing compares to the criminality of Vaccines.

    • Sarah_Ireland

      You people don’t have a clue about life.

  • Free People

    Agree 100%! The lives lost over a ‘business’ Quackery. It boggles the mind.

    I’m sorry about your child’s immune and digestive problems, but I am rather stumped at the next comments..’vaccine doses need to be evaluated…so a study on the amount given’? I take it you’re still willing to vaccinate even after what your child has suffered? Unbelievable.
    I will be glad when this vaccine hoax is exposed for what it is. There is no vaccine that works, not one, it’s quack science and they are runninig a very lucrative business with it. That’s all.

  • Concerned Parent

    You obviously don't have a child that will have life long immune, digestive problems since getting the MMR vaccine. Everyday is a battle for us and I know for a fact it is because of vaccines. If more people would stand up then I feel that we could change things. Perhaps a one size fits all vaccine is not the answer. Maybe the doses need to be evaluated. My son can't handle any type of medication. I give him 1/4 dose of everything and his body tolerates it. Why not do a study on the amount givin? Some people are highly sensative!

    Interesting that this article references research based on falsified medical records by a doctor who lost his medical license over the research, and said research was retracted by the journal that published it. But the unfortunate results of this false research are still going.

  • gweick

    Wrong study to reference. The study quoted came to the following conclusion: "Epidemiological studies, however, have not found an association between MMR vaccination and autism. The epidemiological findings are consistent with current understanding of the pathogenesis of autism, which has a strong genetic component and in which the neurological defects probably occur early in embryonic development. It seems unlikely that a vaccination that is given after birth could cause autism. A minority of cases of autism may have onset after 1 year of age (regressive autism), but the single epidemiological study that included such cases did not find an association with MMR vaccination. Currently, the weight of the available epidemiological and related evidence does not support a causal association between MMR vaccine, or any other vaccine or vaccine constituent, and autism." There are, however, other studies that show the opposite. Indeed, the methods and controls in many of the linkless autism studies are misleading. CDC officials mince their words, take money (which includes job offers = conflict of interest), and then revolve back into the "Mother of all Disease" Big Pharma (Dr. Gerberding went from the US agency charged with promoting vaccines [CDC] directly to become vaccine maker Merck’s Director of Vaccines Division: Dr. Julie Gerberding Named President of Merck Vaccines – 21 Dec 2009 – Merck & Co., Inc.). And excellent article on the issue can be found at https://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/2013/08/1
    For those who look at the evidence, anecdotal as well as clinical (from independent sources), with objectivity, there is no question that vaccines that contain neurotoxic substances like aluminum and mercury (as well as foreign proteins–viruses, live or attenuated–and formaldehyde and other noxious chemicals) have a catastrophic effect upon the immature immune system of an infant. Frankly, it is world-wide infanticide and these foolish and selfish public servants, and the minions of purblind doctors and nureses that slavishly follow their edicts, need to be held accountable.

  • dlxkdnj

    Maybe he referenced the wrong study?

  • ajh

    That same study, which is referred to as "recent" is from 2001.

  • nubwaxer

    absolute baloney.

    • chris

      Yes… Vaccines are GOOD FOR YOU… just like the pharmaceutical companies, your tv (which is paid by the pharma companies) and the governemnt (also paid by the pharma companies) told you so!

      Lets ignore all the EVIDENCE in support of the LIES you have been told all your life, just so we don't dammage that precious ego of yours! But once you take your head out of your ass, maybe you would do some of your OWN research and look at people's work like HUGH FUDENBERG the worldwide authority figure on vaccines since the 70's with over 900 PEER REVIEWED, PUBLISHED medical journals… all on vaccines and their harmful effects…. It sucks to find out you've been played for a fool your entire life and tricked to putting your children at risk for the PROFIT of the big companies… but it's better than staying ignorant!
