    Are people genuinely more willing to have their kids be susceptible to life-threatening illnesses rather than their kids be a bit different? Are you seriously that afraid of autism? It's nothing to fear, and if you're not comfortable with the possibility of your children being autistic, then don't be a parent.

    I'm really stunned by the number of misinformed comments here. I am a medical professional (a neurologist to be exact) and I want to clear something up: vaccinations have nothing to do with autism, and being anti-vaccination is misinformed and dangerous. Vaccinations cannot give you an illness, any illness; you can have an allergic reaction to a vaccination, but you cannot get an illness from it. This is because a vaccine consists of the outer shell of a virus, without the genetic material of the virus. The genetic material is what allows a virus to cause an illness. The outer shell is what makes your body recognize the virus and therefore form a defense against it.Vaccination is extremely important. Please don't make misinformed decisions that could cost you your life. Vaccinations have nothing to do with autism.
    Do not rely on unscientific sources to form your opinion on something as important as this. The source you should go to about medical information is Medline,which is a source for doctors and medical students. If you do not understand what a study says, then ask your doctor. Don't rely on shady articles you read online. If you don't have the scientific background to understand something you read, then ask your doctor. If you don't like your doctor, then find a doctor you like and ask them. But a decision like vaccination is far too important to make based on misinformation you read from shady studies online. It is extremely dangerous not to vaccinate.

      Rainy Jane THANK YOU!! I'm from *AFRICA* and I've personally seen how devastating it is when diseases are allowed to run rampant and it boggles my mind that in countries where vaccines are ( relatively) accessible, people are actively choosing to condemn their kids to a painful death on the word of a discredited 'doctor' (quotes because I refuse to acknowledge that clown as a professional) and Jenny McCarthy

      I agree. I’m an Aspy like you and I have the same perspective on things. People I know are so critical that they actually harass low-functioning kids for their behavior.
      What they don’t realize is that the kids can’t help it; autism is a developmental disorder. It’s difficult for them to adapt to social situations. Even living with Asperger’s is very tough. Not many people can tell you have it but you outcast yourself for it. Like I speak in a very mature manner that 50% appreciate but the other 50% find a little uncomfortable. This has gotten me in problems that are too much to handle. Thank God for the wonderful family I have to help me.

    Vaccines cause autism. If you don't take the time to research vaccine ingredients and learn there are carcinogens, heavy metals and aborted fetal cells in there you're a horrible parent and will make your child suffer because of your gross negligence

    1 and 68 children are diagnosed with autism in 2017. Shows the progression of America. I don't remember anyone being autistic growing up. This is a fact that scares me. I'm anti vaccinations 100% because of this.

      The reason that more people are diagnosed now is because nowadays doctors are more wary of it and know what to look for in diagnosing it. The case is not that "the number of people with autism has grown." Rather, the case is that psychiatric diagnosis has improved so that now more of the people who have autism can be diagnosed. Vaccinations have nothing to do with it, and being anti-vaccination is misinformed and dangerous. Vaccinations cannot give you an illness, any illness; you can have an allergic reaction to a vaccination, but you cannot get an illness from it.
