MMR and Autism – the Jury’s In
While many are convinced the MMR vaccine “causes” autism, I’m still to be convinced. However, ADHD and similar states I regard differently to autism and may well result from assaults on the brain from one of the many vaccines now routinely administered (29 by 18 months at the last count in Ireland according to our government website). Related to the case discussed here, I am convinced that vaccines cause asthma and have said so in another post.
But a court in the U.S. disagrees with me! I do believe vaccines, all of them, can easily cause various degrees of encephalitis, it doesn’t follow that autism is the result. For more on this brain inflammation see Harris Coulter’s book Vaccination: Social Violence and Criminality.
There are three interesting points in this story. First, the courts paid out to two cases of autism caused by the MMR and secondly, the US government has strangely kept the proceedings under lock and key. The third point is that you won’t read about these poor kids and their compensation in the mainstream media. You can read about it on NaturalNews.com.

When someone becomes infected with a disease for which there is a vaccine, the naïve jump on the unthinking bandwagon and assume they had been vaccinated. They never ask the rational question: were they vaccinated?
Recently a lady in the US died from measles. Again the great and the good assumed she had not been vaccinated; she had. Read a critique of the measles vaccine and this particular case in the prestigious Foreign Policy journal:
