I have been asked many times at the office what I thought of the Autism link to vaccines. I am still not convinced that there is a link between the two. In my humble opinion, it's in the preservatives in our foods.
Look at the numbers of us "oldies" who all got our shots back in the days when who knows what levels of contaminants were in them and we all made it out just fine. Then came the days of fast food, MSG, and preservatives,microwaves and then boom! Attention Deficit Disorder was all the rage. Now it's Autism.
There are some forms of Autism that are very obvious and the children are very behind in their skills and have some types of bizarre behaviors. What about the now milder forms such as Asperger's where children have no social skills? Hmmm? The computer and video games age has nothing to do with this? Too many children, including my youngest, have been glued to the computer screens and haven't been forced to go outside and play with other kids in the sandbox and learn how to get along these days.
What is your opinion?
