Meanwhile, the lead author of the Wakefield study has been exonerated of any wrong doing.

Which exonerates all authors associated with the study.
Yep.
POUL THORSEN is a wanted fugitive & the researcher who authored 21 of the 24 government studies that the CDC says prove vaccines don't cause autism.

He stole over a million of the research money (U.S. tax dollars), was indicted on 22 counts of Wire Fraud & Money laundering, committed forgery, purchased a new home, a Harley, an Audi, an SUV, and fled -- yet the CDC continues to base their claim of no link on his research.

He is top on the list of the Inspector General's "Most Wanted" list.

Still think vaccines don't cause autism?
its the law

My 5 month old has not received any vaccinations. We go to her pediatrician regularly who supports our decision. I have an 8yr old step son with autism that seemed to develop post MMR vaccination. I think the government tells us what to do enough as it is. This should always be a choice for parents. Every time our children get vaccinated we sign a form stating we can't sue if our kids are harmed or die..... They have found mercury in shots in the past.... How do we know what's really in the vaccines. I can put a label on a bottle of alcohol and call it water... Why should we trust these money hungry drug companies?

It is law in TN. Your child can't enroll in school without proof of immunizations, been law for a while.

Also, if you don't want your child to have immunizations, you should be forced to home school. I do not want my children exposed to all those horrid diseases, because you don't believe in it, that's just stupid!

As for the lawsuit argument, we already know the people that don't want their child inoculated don't have a pot to piss in, so why should we be forced to live by the decisions of the opposition?

Two words 'Freedom and Liberty.' Please research the pros and cons bout vaccinations. Do y'all really think a baby strait its mother's womb need to be vaccinated against a sexual (hepatitis B) disease? Can we not wait until the babies immune system kicks in like we to with puppies.
Please educate yourself about vaccinations before deciding what you think others should do.
Did y'all know that autism was unheard of before the 70's... It's not just autism either it's autoimmune disease, neurological problems, so-called attention deficit disorder, and many many other problems.
Big Pharma pumps a lot of money into our congressmen's pockets just so they can make tons of money pushing crap that they don't even know that works.
Ask yourselves why Dr. Oz recommends vaccinations for your kids, yet refuses to give them to his own??????????

Question: Why would someone that is fully vaccinated be afraid of touching someone that is non-vaccinated?

Exactly! Why worry about anything if man made vaccinations are given to your children and you trust that they work.... What other ppl do should not concern you if you think these vaccines work shouldn't your child be safe?
And I've seen studies that show that most all "vaccine preventable" diseases were already on the decline before vaccines even came out for them... I just do not believe that our Gov has our best interests in mind pushing shots for our kids... And they keep adding more and more! There are hardly any studies done to prove its safe to administer SO many together its insane! I think ppl need to really educate themselves... Look up the side effects of these vaccines, read testimonies of parents whose kid died, or is living with a disability because of these "life saving" vaccinations. It should be a choice is all I believe. If you want to put your kids life in the hands of some pharmacist, mixing chemicals and live viruses thats your choice... We should always have the choice to not inoculate our children... It's a PARENTS right to raise our kids not the government.

Children with medical or religious exemption to requirements

Medical – Physician or health department authorized to indicate specific vaccines medically exempted (because of risk of harm) on the new form. Other vaccines remain required.
Religious – Requires a signed statement by the parent/guardian that vaccination conflicts with their religious tenets or practices. If documentation of a health examination is required by the school, it must be noted by the healthcare provider on the immunization certificate. In that case, the provider should check the box that the parent has sought a religious exemption.

"It's the law"???

Through all the bluster and pontification it is so easy to see the driving fear behind the words. Fear of disease, fear of opposing the governmental authority structure, and the overall sense of subservience. How can so many be so quick to abdicate their freedom for the false security of slavery?

The explosion in ADHD began in the seventies, the meteoric rise in autism in the nineties. Along with these neurological disorders came autoimmune disorders.
Amazingly, the same pharma that brought us the mercury & aluminum laced vaccines (both mercury & aluminum) are known immune disruptors, They also have the cure for the diseases they caused.

See how that works?

Researchers from Australia have identified an ancestry of Pink Disease (Infantile Acrodynia) as a risk factor for Autism Spectrum Disorders. Pink disease was common in the first half of the 20th century as a mysterious illness affecting children between the ages of eighteen months and three and a half years. The disorder presented with apathy, irritability, and progressive loss of speech, symptoms very similar to those exhibited by children with autism.
Nearly fifty years passed before a connection was made between the disease and exposure to mercury in teething powder, worm medications and diaper rinses. The disease developed in approximately 1 in 500 children exposed to the products and experts identified idiosyncratic sensitivity to mercury as the key risk factor.
The new study, published July 28th in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health investigated the hypothesis that autism can result from the interaction between mercury exposure and a genetic predisposition to sensitivity to mercury.
Currently, 43 peer-reviewed studies support a link between mercury and autism, and experts agree that autism is caused by the interaction of genetic susceptibility and environmental exposures.
The Australian researchers, David Austin, PhD and Kerrie Shandley investigated whether individuals with a known hypersensitivity to mercury were more likely to have descendants with an autism spectrum disorder. They surveyed 522 adult survivors of Pink Disease about the health of their grandchildren. They found that 1 in 25 of these grandchildren had an autism spectrum disorder compared to 1 in 160 children of the same ages in the general population in Australia; a staggering six-fold increase in relative risk. Dr. Austin had the following comment,“The large elevation in autism prevalence in this group of children was startling especially given that rates of other childhood disorders were at expected levels. The thing that differentiates these children from the general population, to which they were compared, is a family history of mercury sensitivity. We were simply blown away by the results.”
