Strep is caused by a bacterium, not a virus......just saying.

If you read the post right before yours this has already been addressed.

Sorry, my error. Posted before having my coffee. There are also many herbs that are antibacterial, in addition to being anti-viral. Garlic is just one of many. Antibiotic Properties of Garlic

There are MANY reputable studies that show the link, and it sure isn't no myth.
You can pretend that vaccines aren't destroying lives, but considering autism has risen in direct correlation with the number of vaccines, I find it hard to turn a blind eye, and a deaf ear to the cries of the wounded.

Could it be POSSIBLE, just possible, that autism has risen in direct correlation to:

1) Increased additives, colorings & hormones in our food & water

2) Increased pollution

3) Increased numbers of diagnoses directly related to massive expansive of the autism diagnostic criteria (broader acceptance of "autism spectrum" disorders increases number of diagnoses to include Asperger's, infantile autism and many others that NEVER would have been included years ago.

Quote:
The vast majority of people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders today would never have qualified under the 1980 classification, and no formal classification separate from schizophrenia existed before then. So it’s not surprising that numbers have increased in the U.S.
4) Increased numbers of older birth parents (old eggs, old sperm)

5) Maternal obesity (which is rising even faster than autism & ADHD)

6) Air pollution

7) Use of drugs such as Pitocin during labor

8) Effects of C-sections

I know any idea aside from the great vaccine conspiracy theory is beyond contemplation, but it seems MORE likely that there are MANY factors contributing to autism, not just one.

Our human tendency is to blame, scapegoat anything we find too frightening.

AIDS: Plague send by God

9/11: Government conspiracy

Mass school shootings: Government conspiracy; Psychiatric drug failure or Mental Health System failure; deterioration of the American family.

Vaccine "side effects": Government conspiracy to line the pockets of Big Pharma

Consider prostate cancer and the DRAMATIC increase of diagnoses. Related to vaccines? Then what?
Quote:
Prostate cancer is a common example –incidence for prostate cancer jumped over 100 percent from 1986 to 1992 which coincided with an aggressive expansion of the prostate cancer screening program based on the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test which was approved by the FDA in 1986.
If you can't turn your back on the wounded, what about the wounded that will suffer illness, complications & death from the ANTI-VAX movement? Apparently, they don't count. Or is that part of the conspiracy theory too?

It's clear that there is a genetic component to autism but there also seems to be environmental triggers involved. Those could be from many thing including toxins in the environment. The list of potential triggers could include vaccines. Autism is not the only concern that people have with vaccines but I refuse to discount all of the stories from parents who's children who regressed after receiving one vaccine or another.

You are lucky. Had you gotten tetanus, or lockjaw as it is sometimes called, you would be dead. There is no cure for it. Look at it this way: the flesh eating bacterium lives in soil all over and occasionally someone will get it. Same with tetanus. But you can get a shot for tetanus. So why in the name of all that's holy are you playing Russian roulette with a disease that will, not may, will kill you when you could so easily be vaccinated for it?

I don't dig in the dirt with my kitchen knives. Don't garden either.



It's the fault of the parent because IF they had vaccinated their special little snowflake, he might not have been incubating the whooping cough he passed on to the baby.

Yes, you can take the responsibility to protect your kids all you want, But when YOUR child is too young to be vaccinated, there isn't much you can do if someone else doesn't vaccinate THEIR child and that child passes a disease onto your child.
Vaccines: VPD-VAC/Pertussis/main page

When was your last pertussis booster? Oh, right, you probably got it with your Tetanus vax. I suppose the parents who won't vaccinate their "snowflakes" have gotten theirs? If a parent doesn't want "poisons" put into their "little snowflakes, they are fine though with poisons being put into their own bodies?

Completely and unequivocally FALSE.

There are NO studies that link autism and vaccines - you're either incredibly uninformed or deliberately misleading people. Please link to them. PS, if they're on a blog, more than 1-2 years old or based on someone's opinion that isn't peer reviewed then that's not a "study" that's a conspiracy theory. If in any way it's linked to Wakefield (who lost his license over his fraud for profit) then you're truly out to lunch.

The CDC is a government agency, not a for profit corporation (unlike Mercola's empire ) - of course pharmaceutical companies are paid for the vaccines they produce, nothing nefarious about that. If you think the entire medical establishment is out to "poison and damage our infants and children" I sure hope your tinfoil hat matches your outfit

Yes there are more vaccines now, science is a pretty nifty thing when it comes to saving lives.

Really? What a cop-out. There's nothing you can do? How about covering your baby when out and about where snotty little children are prevalent (like at say, a doctor's office)?

There's also the large group of adults who favor vaccination mandates for kids but who don't get vaccines for themselves. The flu vaccine is a good example of this. I doubt that the majority of adults are up to date on their pertussis vaccination either.
