For years, the arguements about vaccines have raged, often heatedly, and too often with the result of many parents deciding not to vaccinate their children for fear of the potential damage seemingly linked to vaccinations. This study seems to support that belief.
Vaccine bombshell: Baby monkeys develop autism symptoms after obtaining doses of popular vaccines
However, I have long maintained that it may not necessarily be the vaccines, but the timing of their administration. Too often parents, with their doctors consent. will schedule conbinations of vaccinations for the same visit, to save money, to save time, sometimes simply for convenience. In my opinion it is this practice that overwhelms the vulnerable immune systems of the very young, and creates the adverse reactions which may cause further damaging effects to the child.
The number of vaccines required to attend schools has vastly increased over the last few decades, and corrolates to the rise of autism. All vaccines produce a stress reaction by the immune system. Compressing the time frame for multiple vaccine administrations may simply disable the immune system from properly or effectively processing the vaccine, or even cause an overreaction, whose effects may be damaging to the body as a whole or moreso to the developing brain of the child.
This area requires further detailed studies in view of the results of the University of Pittsburgh study. And they should start now.
Simple surveys of pediatricians vaccination records with a follow up on the health of the child could shold be started today, and a statistical database created for analysis of this potentially destructive practice.
