(NaturalNews) While the mainstream media is touting the latest study showing that the Hepatitis B vaccine they routinely hit newborns with (literally, in the birthing room) reduces liver cancer, they are ignoring a new study published (as an abstract) in the September issue of Annals of Epidemiology.1

That study, conducted by Carolyn Gallagher and Melody Goodman of the Graduate Program in Public Health at Stony Brook University Medical Center, New York, found that newborn boys who received the Hepatitis B vaccine had a higher chance of getting ASD (autism spectrum disorder). On the order of 2.94 times higher.

The study, published in abstract in the Annals of Epidemiology, is awaiting full publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The study is under review.

The study surveyed infant boys who received a Hepatitis B vaccine within one month of birth and compared them to another survey of non-vaccinated boys. The results were compared to overall information found using probability samples from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) from 1997-2002 data sets (the latest available).

The conclusion?

"Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine had a 3-fold greater risk of ASD; risk was greatest for non-white boys."

An earlier study by the same authors found that the Hepatitis B vaccination was associated with those children having higher instances of needing early intervention/special education services compared to other probability samples of U.S. children.2 That earlier study used an NHIS data set different from the one used in the current study, further confirming results of both studies.

It's of note that any causation proven to have a relative risk factor of 2.0 or higher (in magnitude) is considered enough proof for causation in a court of law in the United States.

It's also worth noting that the Hepatitis B vaccine contained Thimerosal until 2002. The vaccine was originally introduced in 1991 and is the first (and only) vaccination routinely given to newborn babies.

The data from the Gallagher-Goodman study (obtained from NHIS) shows autism rates have increased many-fold since the use of the Hepatitis B vaccine began in 1992 and that today, the vaccine is given to nearly 90% of American-born babies.

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control recommends that no less than 28 injections be given for 11 vaccinations between the ages of birth and 2 years. That is as of the June, 2009 recommendations the CDC released.3

The first of those, of course, is the Hepatitis B inoculation, to be given at birth (or very soon thereafter).
