That's the newest thing for anti vaxxers. Claim there will never be a study of vaccinated and unvaccinated. And there never will be, but not for the reasons anti vaxxers claim. It would be unethical, and no way to prevent the unvaccinated group from exposure to viruses. 10 unvaccinated infants died in 2010. Had nothing to do with clean water, toilets, washing hands or immunity. Just as there is no 100 percent safe vaccine, there's no 100 percent safe chance you wont get your neighors germs. Another factor is unknown medical conditions like asthma isn't always known at birth, or cancer. A study of unvaccinated could seriouly harm a child if they contract a childhood illness.
The claim that "Genetic studies get the funding because they want to focus on blaming the victims" shows a bitter group of people who would rather blame others than look at the possibility genetics played a role in his own child. Genetics do happen, all the time in fact. Most people don't take it so personally. Most people would still choose to have children even if they knew they carried a potential gene. But the only ones who cant handle or fathom the idea of genetics is anti vaxxers. The rest of us rely on real science, and move on.
What a moron. There are thousands of unvaccinated people and always has been, including you. All they have to do is verify a person is vaccine free and autism free, then ask every parent who has a child with autism what happened after a series of vaccines. As for the rest of your stool sample, someone get the Charmin.

Quite bizarre isn't it. The evidence is overwhelming that people with one autistic child have a higher chance of getting a second one. The anti-vaxx lobby claim this is because of the vaccines are given to all the kids. Of course they also know that many of the siblings turn out ok even with the vaccines. Poor deluded fools, they can never get one thing right.
Another idiot. Are these children unvaccinated? No they are not, case closed.

The biggest evidence is twin studies where vaccinated identical twins in at least 40% of cases one twin gets autism and the other does not.
It kills the vaccine theory because both twins are genetically identical, they grew up in the same womb, exposed to same chemicals and were weaned onto the same milk/food.
Garbage. Twin studies were trashed a long time ago. Do some research.

hahahaha, it'll take a while to stop laughing over that one. "All they have to do is verify a person is vaccine free and autism free, then ask every parent who has a child with autism what happened after a series of vaccines."

Only an anti vaxxer would consider that a 'study'! No wonder they always support Wakefield's study!

The answer to that is easy. Wakefield, Natural News, Whales, Age of Autism, Mercola... take your pick. All of which are no real doctors or scientists.

You should be laughing at yourself bozo saying they can't do a study because of all the germs. You said yourself you aren't vaccinated. Unfortunately the germs missed you.

I wasn't vaccinated as a child. That's what I said. You're assuming I am still unvaccinated. Maybe you should ask first? And ask what childhood diseases i contracted due to being unvaccinated?? oops, I forgot. It's easier to be rude and nasty.
I could go on and on about the many flaws of your idea of a study, but I'd never make it through all the laughing.

He is a troll. He's only here to attack others who don't agree with his theories. If you look at the whole list of topics http://www.topix.com/forum/health/autism
he tries to and does dominate the autism forum. All of them but maybe 5 are all his changed-name. He goes back 15 pages and disrupts about every one of those articles. You see him on every page, people eventually just ignore him.

This is nothing new. He's always behaved that way since he showed up about 2 years ago and frankly, there hasn't been one anti vaxxers I've ever run into who didn't behave the same. What anti vaxxers just don't get, is of who happens to read these threads, would you listen to a person who behaves like that and base medical care for your child? He didn't just start making nasty comments. His previous nasty comments were removed from this topic. He's an attention seeker. He's only here to posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
It's best to just ignore him, but then it's so easy to debunk most of what he claims at the same time.

So how is your daughter doing? Any progress in playmates yet? Next week is our annual IEP and it should be interesting.

None of my 4 kids had any of these, they have all had chicken pox and measles, make your own choices, simplistic to say but healthy kids don't get sick and polluting their bodies with toxins and contrary to what we are told, weakens their immune system.

Only my opinion and experience, howl me down if you want but it's all after the fact now, the youngest is 27 and the eldest is 36 and none of them have had any of the listed diseases except the ones I mentioned and the usual colds etc.

We can all look up the vaccine schedules for any country. Vaccines are a choice, and it's great your kids are fine. But no one makes vaccine choices off of your kids nor mine. And no one should.

Prior to some parents being able to make vaccine choices, 10 infants died in California due to pertussis (someone who had pertussis shared their germs). They were considered healthy prior to becoming sick and dying. The 20 or so young people in the USA who died due to the flu this year were all healthy as well. But then with the flu vaccine, you never know if the strains in the vaccine will match the strains within the public so it's a crap-shoot. My own mother never vaccinated any of her 6 children due mainly to fear, her fathers opinion of vaccines and the goofy religion she crossed over to (from being Catholic). A childhood disease she had damaged her heart valves and lungs and greatly affects her as she became older. And of course she has shingles as does one of my sisters who is far younger than me and when you have an outbreak of shingles, you're contagious to any who hasn't had the chickenpox. Now in retrospect, my mother has no idea if her choices for her kids will affect them as it did her, contracting the illness and later in life causing major heart and lung problems. It's something she has to live with. And of course after we were all adults, she gave up that goofy religion.

So it all depends on where you live, the risk factors and what you're exposed to, the age you are when exposed and the damage the illness causes.

No progress yet. On Friday she had a bad day, she made an unprovoked attack a child in her class (well it was made out to sound worse than it really was, she merely pushed him over). She sits seperately to other kids in the class.

We have a battle on two fronts. Firstly is her sensory issues to noise that prevents her from socialising in fear that the party will have a cough or sneeze. Secondly there is the issue of her sillyness, we think this stems from boredom and attention issues. The latter is being controlled with drugs and is manageable.

I'm sorry to hear she had a bad day. Does she have a Para to help her with such things? If a Para knows her triggers, they could redirect her and also help her in social situations.

My son was never physical, he'd rather throw up thn touch another person. He always had to be first in line, front of the class to bypass the possibility of a peer turning around and looking at him. My son has vebral stims. At your daughters age, they were far worse. He did this alien screech all the time and every where.

My son is overly silly, too. I think for him it's because even though he may not be socially appropriate at the time in class, it's about all he knows to fit in. he also acted out movies and cartoons, so that didn't help!

She does have 2-3 who rotate with her. They were not watching her closely enough and attunded to environmental changes to determine what triggered this episode. I guess it may be the boy in question may have been somebody she had an interest in (she mentions his name occaisonally) he happens to be very small and maybe she finds him less threatening, She has a fascination with children smaller than her so this may have been a factor? the problem for us when this happens is the parents of the other child and of course the impending threat of her being suspended (this was a recurring problem in 2012).

Yes I understand your situation. My daughter is normally quiet outside and so nobody suspects anything is wrong. She tolerates crowds but we are in terror if one person was to cough or sneeze or a drill goes off then she will let out an audible screech. Lately she has also been going up to people with coughs and growling at them. She is not too old so they just ignore but I wouldn't want her to do it when she is older and people feel more threatened.

LOL! sounds familiar :)
My daughter is prone to silly behavior but tends to act out indoors more than outside. She won't go into a cinema anymore because the last movie the crowd started clapping, she thus avoids theatres. She has a tendency if she sees certain cartoon posters/books in the shops she will run and start tearing it. I have to make numerous donations to the school library to cover cost of damaged books. It seems if she likes a book a lot she will destroy it to bits in a fit of laughter!
She also has a routine to circle the family car and get in the opposite door to where we tell her. This causes problems on roadside parking where she runs onto the road. She is getting better with road safety but the urge to follow routine can get her in trouble.
