4. Unfortunately autism has fallen into a mental disorder that is led by psychologists which in field of autism have been more damagefull that the autism itself.
Eugen Bleuler, a Swiss psychiatrist, was the first person to use the term. He started using it around 1911. The word "autism," which has been in use for about 100 years, comes from the Greek word "autos," meaning "self."

Autism always WAS a psychiatric considered disorder, loooong before vaccines. It didn't just turn into a 'mental disorder' recently, however if you ask the private insurance companies it's not a medical disorder at all; it's an educational disorder.

If it wasn't for those 'blamed' psychiatrists', we'd not have the term autism at all.

Seems you don't know much about autism at all.

Had go back to a 2010 topic?? Did you take a look at the references??? Notice how all the references don't include the title, and have only one or 2 authors name?? Let's just look at one, for instance "Stott,C et al. Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons 2004;9(3):89-91". You're just going to love this.... That actually is the Commentary MMR and Autism in Perspective: the Denmark Story by Carol Stott, Ph.D.; Mark Blaxill; wait for it.... AND Andrew J.Wakefield .....
BAWAHAHAHAHA!!! And that's what the link is basing that eightfold on!! BAWAHAHAHAHA!!!! A Commentary!!!!

Anti vaxxers will believe anything. Greenhealthwatch is bogus and demomstrates again anti vaxxers expect people to believe them at face value and bank on no one will research their info. Sorry pal, the Denmark Study still is valid research and no matter how hard anti vaxxers try to abuse a study, they just cant get past this Denmark study.

Let's count how many times anti vaxxers will spam this link, showing they took this at face value and they don't even know the content of the Denmark study! Winnipeg's spammed it about 3 or 4 times so far!

Nice try. Insults don't change the facts or lessen the humor that the link is a fraud and includes a fraud as a reference.

I want to be more clear about my post. When I talk about vaccination rates decreasing, I'm specifically talking about MMR (the vaccine which people have falsely accused of causing autism). Overall vaccination rates for other things (flu, tetnis, hep) have stayed relatively stable - or even increases slightly.
However, while only 1% of children have had absolutely no vaccines, 8% have skipped the MMR vaccine (MMR stands for Measles Mumps Rubella) and as a result we've seen outbreaks of these diseases in recent years which until recently were completely gone from the US.
Here's a paragraph and the link from which it comes:
"
According to the survey, less than 1 percent of children had received no vaccines by age 19-35 months. However, almost 8 percent of children in this age group had not received measles, mumps and rubella, or MMR, vaccine and remained susceptible to measles, which in recent years has resurged in some areas of the country."
http://www.aafp.org/online/en/home/publicatio...
The only cause for the decrease in MMR has been the anti-vaccination claims from the autism crowd.
However, they fail to explain how this vaccine supposedly causes autism (or for that matter cures retardation at the same rate it causes autism). And, they've failed to answer this simple question:
Even if the vaccine caused autism (which it doesn't) is having an autistic child better or worse than having a child that dies from the measles?
Translation: DUH!
