Vaccines and the autism myth – part 1 | Infectious diseases | Health & Medicine | Khan Academy

February 28, 2020


So for the last
20, 30 years, we’ve noticed this increase in autism. I’m actually going
to quickly sketch out a graph to show you what I mean. We have autism rates over here. And if you follow them over
time, basically what happens is that you see that
things are going upwards. And the main reason that
people cite is awareness. They say, well, if more
parents and families are aware of autism because we
talk about it more nowadays, then of course, they’re going to
bring it up with their doctors and it’s going to get diagnosed. And although that may be
one reason for the increase, people have been searching
for other reasons to explain the increase as well. Now in 1998, there was a team
of doctors and researchers that put together a
study, a study that we call the Wakefield Study. It’s named after the
main author, which was a guy named Dr. Wakefield. He was a surgeon
working in England. And, in total there
were 13 people, 13 authors on this study. So this study was done in
the United Kingdom, the UK. And what they did is
they took 12 children, and these children came into
the hospital, reportedly the normal way, the
routine way that children come into the hospital. They weren’t recruited. And he found that they had
developmental problems. So these are 12
children with some sort of developmental
problem or delay, and the most common example
of a developmental problem among these kids was autism. So a lot of these kids ended up
having a diagnosis of autism. And what they did– I’m actually
going to sketch out for you. So let’s imagine that
this is the head of one of our children. What he asked them was,
do they have any symptoms? When did their symptoms start? All of these kinds
of things to get at their history,
their medical history. And a lot of the families
said, well, you know, we remember them having
these symptoms of autism, which I’m drawing as
a grayed-out brain, and there seems to be– this
is the parents talking now. They felt like there was
some sort of relationship with the vaccine. They felt like they remembered
the vaccine, specifically the MMR vaccine, the measles,
mumps, rubella vaccine, around the time
that symptoms began, and that’s what he reported. So we actually have
now a relationship based in terms of
parents’ recollection between the vaccine and autism. But what this study was mainly
about was actually the gut. So he was a surgeon
and he wanted to look at the
intestines of these kids and he noticed that on
the intestinal biopsies– when you actually got
a little bit of tissue from these intestines– a
lot of them had inflammation. That was what his paper
was primarily about, was this inflammation
that he saw. So he proposed– and
this is a big deal. He proposed that vaccine was
causing this inflammation. He thought that was the
cause of the inflammation, and he then thought
that perhaps there was some mystery protein– let’s
say this blue little protein– that maybe you take
in through your diet, that now, because it’s
inflamed, can get across the gut and can affect the
developing brain. So this was how
he proposed there could be a link between
the vaccine and autism. Now when the Wakefield Study
first came out in 1998, you can imagine the
kind of excitement this created for a lot
of parents and families that had been for years looking
for something to explain why their kid had autism. And so, finally, people could
circle this and say, ah, maybe it was the vaccine
that caused autism, and that’s what people thought. But there were a couple of
problems with this idea. The first problem was that
some of the patients that had autism symptoms,
they actually reported that they were having
these symptoms before they had any of the gut symptoms. Now think about that. If you’re having autism symptoms
before gut symptoms, not after, then that really goes
against this theory, because this theory is
based around the idea that it’s the gut
that comes first. So immediately, this is one
concern and a big question mark over here whether
this is really true. Another question mark is
around this mystery protein. I’ll put it up here. So this mystery protein–
this is something that Wakefield never
really identified. He never said, well, I think
it’s this protein or that one. And in the last 15
plus years, nobody’s found any mystery
proteins that would explain what Wakefield
was suggesting. So the fact that nobody can
actually find these proteins is also another
big question-mark. Nevertheless, a lot of
studies started getting done. People started saying,
well, if there truly is a relationship between
vaccines and autism, then let’s explore that further. So a group of studies were
done around MMR vaccine rates. How often in a population
do you actually see people getting
the MMR vaccine? And you’d imagine
that if there truly is a link between
vaccine causing autism– if that’s true, then, of
course, the vaccine rates must be going up. That would explain
the autism going up. And so they actually looked
in a few different places, and, of course, the first
place to talk about it is the UK, because, of course,
this study was initially done in the UK. And in the UK, they
looked over six years, and they found that,
actually, MMR vaccine rates had been steady. There had not been an increase. So already this
is a little weird if we’re thinking that the
vaccine is causing autism. You’d expect
something different. So they looked again. They actually
looked another time. This time they actually
looked in the US. And in the United States they
did this study over 15 years. And over 15 years,
the same thing, steady vaccine rates even though
autism rates were going up. Now another study
was actually done, this time in Canada
and, surprisingly, in Canada it turns out that
the vaccine rates were actually going down slightly. So vaccine rates
over 12 years now went down, even though
autism rates were going up. So this data is done at
the population level, but it really does
go against this idea that vaccine is causing autism. But people weren’t
satisfied with that. They wanted more
specific research to be done on this mechanism
that Dr. Wakefield proposed. So another study was done. It actually was done
in the United Kingdom, and this study looked at
473 autistic children. So remember, the initial
study was done on 12 children, and now we’re
looking at hundreds of children with autism,
and among these 473, they actually wanted to
figure out this part of it. They said, is there a
link between vaccine and any sort of gut
inflammation and the answer was a resounding no. There doesn’t seem to be any
relationship in autistic kids with vaccine, MMR vaccine
and inflammation of the gut. So that was actually very
detrimental to Wakefield’s theory. But what about the second part,
the second link between gut inflammation and any sort of
autism, this part right here? Well, again, another study
in the UK looking this time at 262 autistic children
found that there was no link between
these two things. So gut inflammation
and autism did not seem to be related at all. So now the two important
components of Wakefield’s idea didn’t seem to bear out. And then I should also
just cross this off, this mystery protein bit,
because, again, people have been looking for that,
and no one seemed to find that. But that wasn’t good enough
because you could say, well, maybe there still is some link
between vaccine and autism, but maybe this mechanism
wasn’t quite right. So research got done on
this purple arrow over here. So they said, OK,
what about this? Could it be possible that
there’s a link between the two using some other mechanism. And so a study was
done in the UK, specifically looking at
MMR vaccine and autism. Is there a relationship? And it turns out that
they, in this study, looked at 71 autistic
children, and they found that among these children
there was no relationship. And this study was actually
in a way done again. In fact, in another setting
done in a different way, but also trying to
answer the same question of a link between vaccine and
autism in Finland this time. They found that among
309 autistic children, there was no link. Now, remember this
link that we created was done among 12
children and now we have hundreds and hundreds of
kids in different countries. Another one was done in the US. And all these studies are
finding the same result, that basically
there were no links that they could find
between vaccine and autism. And so people started
really doubting the truth behind that very first
study, that first study done on 12 kids. But people were still
talking about it and said, you know, what about
that Wakefield Study? Isn’t it possible
that there could still be a link in spite of
all this other evidence? So, finally, a
group out of Finland tried to do another type of
study, a different approach, that they thought
would conclusively answer the question. They basically said, well fine. Why don’t we follow
1.8 million children. So obviously this is
many, many children that are getting vaccinated
and just follow them over time and see if they develop autism,
and this might answer once and for all whether
there’s a link. And so they followed
these kids over time, and they found a grand
total of zero cases of vaccine-associated autism. So in all these cases of
vaccination, none of them resulted in autism. So at this point,
people really stopped believing the study,
the Wakefield Study, and whether there was any link. That was kind of resolved. All of these studies
said, no, there was really no link between
vaccine and autism, but a question remained
around the Wakefield Study and how those results were
found in the first place. I’m actually going
to pause right there and we’ll jump into
that in the next video.

    This is tobacco science if you go down to the office of all the people that are doing these studies like the CDC and you look at the paperwork and records it always turn out that they are not doing the studies right. Look at the CDC for example they are the biggest agency in charge of checking the safety of vaccines and if you ask their scientists if they are checking the vaccines records of the kids they are testing they said NOPE! Ok are you comparing vaccinated kids vs Unvaccinated kids? NOPE? Are you checking their heavy metals levels in the brain before and after vaccination? NOPE? So what that heck are you checking for??!!! Uuhhmmmm….. school records birth certificates, uuuhhhmmmmm…..sugar levels.. uuuhhmm. So on and so on. People and real doctors that are actually doing their job are getting fired or shutdown like Doctor Wakefield. Even the top doctors at the CDC are being shutdown.
    You can vaccinate at your own risk all you want, I did that and paid a high price, never again.!

    The parents don't know anything about their own children. Just because they go into seizures a few hours after the vaccine doe not prove that the vaccine caused it. The parents have the burden of proof- not the vaccine producer.

    The UK are now planning to test new born babies for autism, I wonder why?? What will happen when tests show that babies are not born with autism but are always diagnosed after 18 months to two years of age (after receiving the MMR vaccine). Autism rates up from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 38 in the US. Northern Ireland now 1 in 34 boys diagnosed with autism. C'mon you mean parents in the, 60,s didn't know their child had a learning disability? I went to school in the 60,s we NEVER had this many kids with learning disabilities.
    Problem today is pharmaceutical companies are making a lot of money from vaccines.
    Flu vaccination now is being rejected by many in the UK as so many get the worst dose of flu ever after getting the vaccination.

    Your presentation is what is a myth and full of lies and misrepresentations. You have obviously not investigated this situation and are presenting information which is not based on facts. Dr. Wakefield did not introduce the possible connection between vaccines and autism or other injury. At the time that he did the study, vaccine makers were being sued in the U.K. and the U.S. to the degree that they claimed to be unable to make a profit from selling these drugs. The paper was agreed to by 13 of the most distinguished physicians in the U.K., including the pediatric gastroenterologist who actually performed the procedures on the children. The "mystery protein" was the measles virus which was found in the gastrointestinal tract of the children in the study, whose system was apparently not able to clear it,

    Transfer factor was not a competitor to the MMR vaccine: it was a derivative of mother's milk which was used to help heal the intestines of these sick children, who had been considered untreatable by the general medical profession. Any profit make from its sale would to the institution for which Dr. Wakefield worked, which actually held the patent. Brian Deer was hired by Rupert Murdoch whose son was working with the company which made the vaccines.

    The report was not against the measles vaccine but brought up an issue with the MMR combination which seemed to be overwhelming the immune system of some vulnerable children. Dr. Wakefield was made an example so that other physicians or scientists who ever decided to study or question the religion of vaccines would see what would happen to their career as a result. Dr. Wakefield's study results have been replicated by other scientists around the world.

    If anyone wants the real story of what happened with this study, you can watch "The Pathological Optimist". For real fraud, you can watch "Vaxxed" about a CDC scientist who was instructed to destroy evidence of a link between autism and MMR which was found by the CDC in 2004 and covered up.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, Bill Gates funds Kahn Accademy? Bill Gates is a huge vaccine pusher, worldwide. So, there may be a little bit of bias against Dr. Wakefield in this video….possibly. Dr. Andrew Wakefield was a gastrointestinal expert, a go-to guy, upstanding, highly regarded by his peers and successful in his chosen path…vaccines were not on his radar screen…but this was before he became a dastardly villain; an "anti-vax" crusader…not realizing in his weakened understanding that he became bent on destroying his own career over some "myth" to which he had fallen prey.
    The cause of the Fallen Doctor: Several parents, seeking desperately to help their children as all doctors had come to a dead end. A team was arranged and they begun to investigate the possible links in these children's dismal heath failure. One of the common factors was that all the children had received an MMR shot within several days of each other. It was noted along with many other findings and suggestions. Dr. Wakefield had recommended that until the MMR vaccine was studied in greater depth, that parents consider give their children single dose vaccines and space them out. All the other learned doctors signed off on the completed paper, and it was sent to the Lancett for acceptance and printing.
    The Fall From Grace:
    Then, all hell broke loose. A reporter decided to "expose" this doctor and the team (that has tirelessly researched the problems on behalf of very sick children). A reporter called it, fraud. The reporter claimed Dr. Wakefield did it for money! Only, why would the good doctor do that…he was very well-off anyway. He had a fantastic reputatIon. What on earth would be do that for? Smells fishy, this reporter. I wonder who paid him? Someone is definitely running scared. Got to shut this guy up by golly! If you want to know the actual truth, take some time to actually listen to Dr. Andrew Wakefield. He has been interviewed many times. But understand, any doctor or professional who question anything at all about the safety and efficacy of vaccines are ALL regarded as quacks and villians. Dare you listen? Buckle-up … Things are about to get interesting.

    Vaccines are a drawing table for inventing new diseases and useless protocals that are hoisted on the population. Guess who's left the enormous tab to pay. Guess already? Pharma institution which give millions to colleges where a lot of prototype viruses and pathogens aka vaccines (one of the same)are started before being sent to quarantined labs. Also this why there are so many genology associations now asking for peoples dna. It's a huge conglomerate and collusion. First step to take in the right direction?

    The evidence in now in 4 years later, Vaccines may in fact cause autism. See here.
    –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2cHZa8t98w This is Dr Paul Offit saying “You can’t really say the mmr does not cause autism, but if your in front of the media you better say it, you don’t want that door left open.”

    –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XUM2gvfbW8 This is the governments expert witness Dr Zimmerman who made a sworn affidavit saying vaccines can sometimes cause autism.
    This is the affidavit, https://sharylattkisson.com/2019/01/06/dr-andrew-zimmermans-full-affidavit-on-alleged-link-between-vaccines-and-autism-that-u-s-govt-covered-up/

    –https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/autism.html The CDC says vaccines don’t cause autism and says there are 17 studies to prove it. But when you look at them, they are all either about the mmr vaccine or thimerosal. What about the other 15 Vaccines? Where is the studies? What about aluminum? So I don’t think they have proved anything.

    – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjLuTvS-nzg This is Dr Stanley Plotkin himself in 2019 reading the IOM report that says the evidence is not in yet on whether vaccines cause autism. Note that they are referring to the DTaP, not the mmr. Maybe that’s why the CDC’s 17 studies are only on the mmr?

    "There are very powerful people in positions of great authority in Britain and elsewhere who have staked their reputations and careers on the safety of MMR and they are willing to do almost anything to protect themselves.

    "When scientists first raised fears of a possible link between mad cow disease and an apparently new, variant form of CJD they had detected in just 20 or 30 patients, everybody panicked and millions of cows were slaughtered…….yet there has been a tenfold increase in autism and related forms of brain damage over the past 15 years, roughly coinciding with MMR's introduction, and an extremely worrying increase in childhood inflammatory bowel diseases and immune disorders such as diabetes, and no one in authority will even admit it's happening, let alone try to investigate the causes.

    ……it is highly likely that at least part of this increase is a vaccine related problem."

    there is plenty of isolated autism, children who were perfectly healthy before their MMR, then became autistic immediately after. You can't silence thousands of mothers. The bodies and immune systems of very young children, 15 to 18 months old, are not fully capable of dealing with a triple dose of highly toxic vaccine injected directly into their little bodies. BigPharma is so defensive about everything, whether it's cancer, vaccines, or a terrible drug they brought to market knowing full well it had serious problems. They will attack and destroy before being willing to accept criticism or improve their products. Those gullible fools who think that BigPharma has their best interests at heart are sorely mistaken. And now that the truth is getting out about the high risks of vaccines they are doubling down, pushing states to legislate mandatory vaccinations and slandering dissenters even more strongly. They are truly a medical cartel with a fascist mentality.

    VACCINES…

    August 2014: Head of C.D.C. admits on C.N.N. that Vaccines can Trigger Autism: Recently Julie Gerberding, the head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, appeared on Dr. Sanjay Gupta‘s show House Call and explained that vaccines can trigger autism in a vulnerable subset of children. This is the claim that many parents have been making since at least the 1980s, and they have been dismissed and even mocked for making it.

    “Mammography simply joins the long list of therapies and procedures where desire for profits and lowering of world population levels have superseded the welfare of our citizens.” — James Howenstine, M.D.

    Dr. Harris Coulter: "Vaccination programs were instituted in the late 1930s, and the first handful of autistic babies were noted in the early 1940s. When vaccination programs were expanded after the war, the number of autistic children increased greatly."

    According to the Associated Press, Dr. Jonas Salk co-authored a clinical trial that "injected experimental flu vaccine in male patients at a state insane asylum in Ypsilanti, Mich., then exposed them to flu several months later." The victims of this medical experiment were described as "senile and debilitated," meaning that obtaining their rational consent to participate in such experiments would have been impossible. And that means Dr. Jonas Salk — one of the most highly-worshiped figures throughout modern medicine — was conducting this trial in violation of medical ethics and in violation of the law.

    WEB: Drug companies and regulators have long known about the harmful effects of the oral polio vaccine that includes the live virus. In 1976, vaccine inventor Jonas Salk admitted to the United States Congress that the live polio vaccine was the “principal if not sole cause” of all reported polio cases in the U.S. since 1961, according to Salem News.

    "You cannot immunize sick, malnourished children and expect them to get away with it. You'll kill far more children than would have died from natural infection…It needs to be appreciated that children in developing countries are at a much greater risk of complications from vaccination and from mercury toxicity…because poor nutrition, parasitic and bacterial infections and low birth weight." — Archie Kalokerinos, M.D.

    "They went through Africa, South America and elsewhere and vaccinated sick and starving children…They thought they were wiping out measles, but most of t hose susceptible to measles died from some other disease that they developed as a result of being vaccinated. The vaccination reduced their immune levels and acted like infection. Many got septicaemia, gastro-enteritis, etc. or made their nutritional status worse and they died from malnutrition. So there were very few susceptible infants left alive to get measles. It's one way to get good statistics. Kill all those who are susceptible which is what they literally did!" – Archie Kalokerinos, M.D.

    "Unbelievably, the measles vaccine caused long-term suppression of the children's immune system for six months up to three years. as a result, the immune-depressed children died from other diseases in greater numbers that children who had never received the vaccine. Tragically, African girl babies in the experiment were given twice the dose of the boys, and therefore suffered a higher death rate."
    – Alan Cantwell, M.D., discussing the Edmonston-Zagreb measles vaccine

    "DO NOT TAKE ANY VACCINATIONS. This is the standard deceptive way you are given the establishment’s biological warfare infections." — Dr. William D. Kelley

    "The I.M.A. (Indian Medical Association) has a figure of 85,000 vaccine-attributed polio victims – up to 2005… Doctors have been advised to keep quiet on these issues for the 'greater good' of humanity. It is sad that no effort is being made to track, treat and compensate the unfortunate children. GAVI, UNICEF, Rotary and WHO do not reply to our emails making it plainly evident they aren't the least bothered about the health of Indian children. Shame on those who wish to profit by killing and maiming little babies." – Dr. Omesh Bharati Politics of Vaccination II

    "…They started vaccinating and within four months had an outbreak of over 350 cases of polio." — Viera Schiebner Ph.D. citing stats from “Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal,” 1991 concerning polio vaccine campaign in several South American countries

They were wrong… The virus in the vaccine can mutate into a deadlier version that ignites new outbreaks." – Polio Surge in Nigeria after Vaccine Virus Mutates, Associated Press, 8/14/09

    Natural Health Website: Dr. Maurice Hilleman made astounding revelations in an interview that was cut from The Health Century — the admission that Merck drug company vaccines had been injecting dangerous viruses into people worldwide. Bear in mind that Dr. Hilleman was the developer of Merck's vaccine program. He developed over three dozen vaccines, more than any other scientist in history. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. He received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. Hilleman was one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.

    "Deliberate attempts have been made to allow (Aboriginal) infants under my care to die. The real authorities don't want these infants to live. My final conclusion after forty years or more in this business (medical) is that the unofficial policy of the World Health Organization is one of murder and genocide." – Archie Kalokerinos, M.D., author of Every Second Child

    "By use of the Freedom of Information Act, Dr. Robert Streckler was able to learn that the D.O.D. (Department of Defense) secured funds from Congress to perform studies on immune-destroying agents for germ warfare.

    I respect Kahn academy & appreciate what they do that it is great when it is about education, however about this in Vaccine It makes me think that Kahn Academy bias is due ti the fact that they get financial help from the pharmaceutical company that make vaccine!

    It’s all about profits. In the last 20 years maybe 5 to 10 people have died from measles in the USA. In that same time period, around 500,000 people have died in motor vehicle accidents. And many more people died from alcohol or cigarette smoking. You have a higher chance of dying from a lightning strike than from measles. The key is good nutrition and clean sanitation. This is why in poor countries you here of people dying from disease outbreaks like measles. The reason is in poor countries a lot of people suffer from poor nutrition and unsanitary conditions, such as unclean drinking water. But in the USA and most wealthy countries nearly everyone has access to nutrition and clean water, etc. But since the vaccine makers make billions of dollars each year of course it’s to their best interest that everyone buys their products and doctors also make money from it. It’s not about safety, it’s for profit $. Now even though I’m not in favor of vaccines, if people want to vaccinate they should have that right. But at the same time, people who don’t want to vaccinate should also have the same right. I’m against forcing people to vaccinate. People should have a free will to choose. Freedom and libertys

    To be clear there's more than one type of Mercury. Here's the problem though. Brubacher demonstrated that ethylmercury was cleared from the blood more quickly than methylmercury. Unlike methylmercury, however, ethylmercury was not found in any of the bodily waste exudates.

    Toxins are excreted from the body via feces, urine, sweat, etcetera. Ethylmercury, while gone from the blood, wasn’t found in any of the excretions.

    Upon autopsy, they found out where it had gone. It was in the nervous system.

    A neurotoxin that “clears” into the neural tissue is being injected into the body. And this is deemed “safe”.

    Heres more info on the wakefield issue, since people use that as a scapegoat for the whole anti vax movement, when It really isn't even on most parents radar.
    ~Andy Wakefield was one of 13 doctors who wrote the Lancet paper
    ~It was an exploratory case study of 12 children with severe gastrointestinal issues and nothing to do with autism
    ~Not all of the children had autism
    ~The study noted as part of the background history that some of the parents linked their children's severe gastrointestinal issues as onsetting after receiving the mmr
    ~The study mentions, in passing for context, some other studies that link health issues including autism to MMR
    ~The study states quite categorically that they proved no link between MMR and autism since it was an early exploratory study with a sample size far too small to represent the wider population. And it's not what they were looking for.
    ~The study concluded that it would be a good idea to do further research on the safety of the mmr in a one size fits all vaccination programme to see if there were some children who had conditions that caused the mmr to be problematic for them
    ~The study suggested that continuing with single jabs until further research could be done might be worth looking into instead of withdrawing single jabs in the UK which were still available until 1998
    ~This study was 20 years ago why does it not strike her as strange that they have nothing else…did vaccine science just stop in the 1990s!
    ~You can bet your life that 99% of people sharing this urban myth about Andy Wakefield have not read the study

    Obviously this man didn't read the Lancet article by Wakefield et al. which he says "kickstarted the Autism Myth"…or else he read it but didn't understand it. Also, he obviously doesn't understand the simple science principle "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" — e.g., a study that "finds no evidence of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism" does not "show that there is no link between the MMR vaccine and autism."

    If he was seriously interested in the issue of whether vaccines contribute to the causation of autism and had devoted a decent amount of time to the issue, he would have come across the work of researcher Theresa Deisher and her team. Deisher's work implicates all the vaccines manufactured on human fetal cell lines; in other words, it's not just MMR triggering autism in vulnerable children, it's also Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine and HepA vaccine. So if you compare a group of MMR-vaccinated children with a group of children who didn't receive MMR but did receive Varicella or HepA vaccines, the incidence of vaccine-triggered autism in the two groups will be just about identical. And the incidence of autism will go up while MMR vaccination rates plateau or decrease, if the Varicella and/or HepA vaccination rates are going up. So much for the large-population studies presented as "evidence" in this video.

    Do you really want to rely on the conclusions of this man whose science is so sloppy? I have a suggestion for you. Youtube has several videos of Andrew Wakefield being interviewed, or presenting about his work. Choose a video that's at least 30 minutes long and watch it. (There's a particularly good one titled "Dr Andrew Wakefield In His Own Words.") And read the original Lancet article for yourself; it's easily found on the web. You may not understand all the technical language in the article, but the statements about MMR and autism are plain English and easily understood.

    Such barefaced lies from Khan Academy! I had utmost respect for the work of Khan Academy until now. 12 children didn't just come into the hospital, which healthy children do?!!! They were autistic children suffering from accute gut issues and their parents had heard of Andrew Wakefield's (gastroenterologist) work and brought their kids to him hoping to find relief. Wakefield was able to establish the gut brain connection through his treatment. While their gut issues were healed, the children's autism symptoms got better. Check out Wakefield's work for yourself, it'll take you more than 10 mins it's taken Khan Academy to put together such rubbish. Wakefield himself was exonerated and his work speaks for itself. I'd expect more from an educational forum than merely parroting mainstream media and the drug industry that are motivated by nothing other than profits. A cursory search for Andrew Wakefield will tell you that he is a disgraced doctor, but independent research will reveal the truth.

    Here's a preview of the research you'll have to do. The cover up is huge. Do your homework, don't be brainwashed by the people who stand to gain financially by your ignorance. https://youtu.be/iprCzKs7ckg

    Listen to Dr. Wakefield tell his story. You'll be amazed at how the truth is distorted. https://youtu.be/n7NotxTg7jg

    Research further and connect the dots…

    In 1999 the CDC did a study that compared the vaccinated vs unvaccinated and show the unvaccinated were healthier.

    This means that in 2012 when Colleen Boyle of the CDC was asked by Senator Posey in a hearing this question , she lied under oath!

    Hmm. Interesting. But if you want to watch a video about this kind of stuff (vaccines) but with dozens of doctors talking about it, you should check out this video: https://youtu.be/cHWeJ0f_o3A
    This one is excellent and really says all the studies they're talking about.

    You did not report the truth regarding the Wakefield Lancet report. If that simple part was not true, why should we believe anything else you say. The truth is below in the 2nd paragraph. Read your own independently published science journal, people. Not the ones funded by companies who would benefit from the studies by tweaking its outcome. We really need to get away from this apocalyptic junk science and the trolls that repeat the same material.

    According to J.B. Handley in "How to End the Autism Epidemic", he says,
    "Perhaps no lies are easier to disprove or easier for any reader to
    independently verify than the ones that have been manufactured about
    British gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield … The thirteen-member
    team of doctors who wrote the paper felt they had discovered a condition
    that may be unique to autism and that the condition merited further
    study, concluding: 'We have identified a chronic enterocolitis in
    children that may be related to neuropsychiatric dysfunciton.' … This
    paper is viewed as the pioneer of the gut-brain connection in autism
    and has been cited in more than two hundred other studies. The
    conclusions of the paper, from the standpoint of gastroenterology, have
    been replicated on dozens of occasions … The paper's other conclusion,
    which was really more commentary than science, was what created all the
    controversy, and ultimately the witch hunt against Dr. Wakefield. Of
    the twelve children in the study, the parents of eight of the children
    had noted that the regression into autism happened after their child had
    received the MMR vaccine. The study authors debated these parental
    reports and decided to include that information in the study. That's
    all. As the thirteen coauthors stated in the conclusion of the paper
    … 'In most cases, onset of symptoms was after measles, mumps, and
    rubella immunization. Further investigation are needed to examine this
    syndrome and its possible relation to this vaccine'. Most people don't
    believe me when I explain to them how minor the mention of vaccines was
    in the infamous, five-page-long "Lancet Study." Moreover, they have no
    idea that Dr. Wakefield had twelve other coauthors or that there never
    was any data about vaccines and autism in the paper itself. One of the
    many false narratives is that Dr. Wakefield "faked the data" about
    vaccines and autism, but that would be impossible. There was no data!
    The scientists reported parental reports of a relationship between
    vaccines and autism, nothing more, and were very clear that they felt
    more study was needed. You'll likely be shocked that they also said this
    in the paper: 'We did not prove an association between measles, mumps,
    and rubella vaccine and the syndrome described."

    I’m not saying that there is NO connection between vaccines and autism however a lot of people seem to think that it’s the ONLY cause of autism. I didn’t receive a single vaccine until I was 12 years old and I was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at 3 years old. There may be a connection but I really don’t think it’s the only cause! Autism existed before vaccines, it just tended to be passed off as mental disorders psychiatric issues schizophrenia etc.

    Vaccines are filled with viruses that not only cause cancer, but also every autoimmune disease known to man. The mercury and aluminum is what’s causing the brain damage along with the viruses. Don’t believe anyone who says vaccines are safe, they are not, all vaccines should be made illegal immediately. Vaccines are a witches brew of pure poison, don’t believe me, read the vaccine insert itself, google the ingredients, aborted babies! This guy is delusional people. VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM, DEATH, CANCER,
