Ive read on an article that vaccines are one of the major contributions to Autism. Before 1989 the federadal gov. required only 10 vaccinations. Now theres 24. At the same time, the last survey done for autistic children in 1988 was 1 in 2,637. Now, there's 1 in every 166.
Anyone know what other alternative or is it safe just to completely not vaccinate my newborn?
There are a number of conditions believed to be associated with vaccination, including autism, asthma, and sudden infant death syndrome. One of the known risks of vaccinations is brain damage. To say they are safe is a biased opinion. They have risks, the question is whether the benefits outweigh the risks. For more information, backed by scientific studies, see www.avn.org.au. This website also gives alternatives.
Remember, it is immunisation that is required – this can be done by vaccination, but can also be done by actually getting the disease – so if your child has chickenpox, they have been immunised (not vaccinated). If your child does get any of the diseases for which immunisation is required, take them to the doctor to get their immunisation card marked as immunised.
