Now that we know that environmental factors are contributing to autism we need to take a hard look at the likely suspects - that includes vaccines. We have the science from the EPA that identifies the change-point year, 1988.7 so we need to look at what environmental component(s) affected all children across the United States simultaneously. The environmental trigger(s) would have to span both the urban areas to the remote rural areas. If you look at the change-point year you will see that it perfectly coincides with the bloating of the CDC's recommend vaccination schedule. This schedule effects who will be able to attend daycare, pre-school and receive a public education. We need to look at the program without fear, we must stop the inflammatory rhetoric and begin unraveling the epidemics affecting so many of our children.
This timeline is an attempt to answer questions that continue to circulate regarding this topic.
Why hasn't the autism rates dropped since thimerosal was phased out of two vaccines?
The timeline demonstrates as thimerosal was phased out of two vaccines in 2000 it was added to the flu vaccine and SIX new vaccines were added to the recommend schedule many containing the neurotoxin aluminum. I would also like to add that for the first time in history the FDA in 2002 recommend that pregnant women be injected with the influenza vaccine, whose multi-dose vials contain 25 mcg of thimerosal. What is ironic, the EPA sets a limit of 0.1 mcg/kg body weight/day for methylmercury exposure (fish consumption) to avoid fetal exposure that will cause disabilities "to use language, to process information, and in visual/motor integration."
