Are Vaccines Really Dangerous for our Kids?!?
Do vaccines cause Autism, much higher than reported side effects, and other (perhaps even intentional) side effects? I've been hearing that a lot lately from alternative media sources that, however, present credible documentation, scientific studies, and expert testimony. As a Neural Engineering PhD Student, I deem the evidence quite credible. But I wonder what the rest of the HubPages community thinks about this issue. Pretty important, if true, wouldn't you agree? Please be open minded as you think about your answer!!! And, I will write an entire Hub to share my own views on this issue.
They pose a danger of them getting sick since most vaccines contain a live virus but I don't think there is any proven link between autism and vaccines. I'm sure we would have heard a lot about it if there was a link.
In my answer to you on why parents and some doctors thought that childhood vaccines might be one of the potential causes of autism is because they used to contain a mercury-based preservative called thimerosal. While no studies showed a link between any harmful side effects and the thimerosal in vaccines, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Public Health Service agencies decided to remove thimerosal from childhood vaccines..
According to research there have been studies showing that methyl mercury, found in nature and even in many fish that we eat, can have harmful side effects resulting in intellectual and mental health problems — but not autism.
However, some doctors and researchers drew the conclusion that the different type of mercury in childhood vaccines must also cause a similar side effect and may result in autism. However, there's no good scientific evidence to show that there's any relationship.
Numerous studies conducted across the globe have tracked autism statistics both before and after the removal of thimerosal from childhood vaccines. The results show that there was no decrease in cases of autism after the vaccines were ch
I see that you are planning on writing a hub on this subject, I do hope what I have here in answer to your question will help as I did a lot of research to find this information.
Good luck with this Hub RighterOne
