I’m frequently asked my opinion on the causes of Autism. If you are reading this, you are probably painfully aware of how controversial this topic is. Most of the controversy is centered around vaccination.
As a physician, I try to look for the “obvious” cause first. I find it amazing how often the “obvious” is overlooked. You know the saying, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. It’s probably a duck. The component in the vaccine that is the most controversial, is Thimerosal, which is a mercury compound. What do we know about mercury? Mercury is a “known” neurotoxin. Meaning it is toxic to the nervous system. This cannot be good for an infant’s developing brain and nervous system.
I always advise new parents to ask a lot of questions when contemplating vaccinating their children. Here are three “extremely” important ones:
- If my child is vaccinated, can they still contract the illness or disease they are being vaccinated against?
- If my child is vaccinated, can the vaccine possibly cause neurological damage?
- If my child is vaccinated, could he or she become deathly ill?
If you have an Autistic child, you now realize the importance of the above questions. If you are a new parent, it is your obligation to become informed. Your child is voiceless in this matter.
