Autism and vaccinations

Do you trust your doctor?

From Vox posts on the connection between childhood vaccinations and autism:

(Quote from the article he references:)
"We have a fairly large practice. We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we've taken care of over the years, and I don't think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who never received vaccines," said Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, Homefirst's medical director who founded the practice in 1973. Homefirst doctors have delivered more than 15,000 babies at home, and thousands of them have never been vaccinated.

Vox's comments:
I've long been anti-vaccine for two reasons. First, because there would be no need for Congress to have passed a law protecting those manufacturing and administering vaccines from being sued if they were genuinely harmless. Second, because of the rise of autism and other childhood problems which correlate with the increase in the insane US vaccine schedule.

Now, a second large group of unvaccinated children has been shown to be free of the very issues which the vaccine advocates claim cannot be caused by vaccines. The vaccine-free practice is somehow missing the 114 autistic children that the Illinois Education Department's statistics would predict, so it's clear that someone cannnot telling the truth here; Occam's Razor strongly suggests is that it is the side which is dependent upon selling and administering vaccines to maintain an important revenue stream.

I agree, wholeheartedly.

I don't get a flu shot for some of the same reasons.

Don't blindly listen to your doctor; do your own research.
