(NaturalNews) Rates of autism have skyrocketed 1000% since 1990, yet defenders of vaccines and the pharmaceutical industry keep scratching their heads in confusion: What could be causing this? Lots of clues point to vaccines as one of the primary contributing factors to increased rates of autism.

In this article, we present supporting quotes from some of the industry's top authors who write about the possible links between autism and vaccines. Enjoy this collection of research.

Autism and vaccines

There is also a strong connection between all forms of vaccinations and autism. A U.S. study found that children who received vaccines containing a preservative called thimerosal, which is almost 50 percent mercury, were more than twice as likely to develop autism than children who did not. Although mercury has been removed from regular childhood vaccines due to growing safety worries, it is still present in other vaccines children might get.

Every year more and more children are being diagnosed with learning disabilities and autism. What is the cause? According to many experts, including Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., a senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council and author of Deadly Immunity, our government is to blame. There's growing evidence that shows that a drug called thimerosal is to blame. This drug is found in vaccines. The fact is the more vaccines kids get, the more autism, learning disabilities, and lifelong illness develops. The drug thimerosal is a preservative that was put in vaccines back in the 1930s.

Autism is a catastrophic epidemic with an increase of 1,500% in the UK in the last decade. In California one in 150 children is autistic - a 54% increase in just 2001/2! The primary causes of autism known to come from vaccines, maternal overexposure to heavy metals and antibiotics, heavy metals from industry pollution of the air and water, and the chemicals used in the electronics industry. Significantly, the first cases of autism were described in the US shortly after the vaccines for whooping cough were introduced in the 1940s.

Could the number of vaccines now recommended actually be contributing to the rise in children's chronic diseases like asthma, allergies, autism, autoimmune disease, diabetes, obesity, some cancers, and the growing epidemic of developmental disorders? Remember, in just twenty-four years, we've gone from fewer than ten vaccines to fifty vaccines, and there are more on the way. As the childhood health crisis worsens, more and more parents, and physicians, are starting to question the effect these vaccines might be having on our children's developing immune systems.

Mercury toxicity is a suspected cause of a steep rise - a tenfold increase between 1984 and 1994 - in diagnosed cases of autism in children around the world, according to some scientists. Specifically, the culprit is thimerosal, a mercury-based compound used as a preservative in vaccines commonly administered to babies and infants. Thimerosal-free vaccines are available. If you have a child who will be receiving vaccinations, ask for and make sure thimerosal-free vaccines are used.

The first reported case of autism occurred after thimerosal, a preservative for immunizations, was added to vaccines. Since then, the incidence of autism has increased at an alarming rate. Thimerosal is not a necessary additive and is toxic to the human body, yet it has been used for years. And although thimerosal has been phased out of childhood vaccines, the vast majority of flu shots given to children and adults still contain it, and it is believed that many pediatricians are still using unexpired vials of thimerosal-containing vaccines.

Is it mere coincidence that rates of autism increased when the Center for Disease Control inserted additions to the recommended vaccination program for infants in 1988? In the 1980s, autism rates were estimated at only six in 10,000 children. Today one in 150 children is autistic, though in some areas autism affects closer to one in 50 children. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has acknowledged that thimerosal can be a neurotoxin (knowing very well that mercury is a neurotoxin), and in 2004 stated that thimerosal-containing vaccines were associated with autism.

Nonetheless there continues to be lively debate about environmental roots of autism, which may have nothing to do with genetics. When California researchers, for example, studied the association between autism and environmental pollution in the San Francisco Bay area, they discovered a potential connection between ambient metal concentrations, and possibly chlorinated solvents, and an increased risk for autism. A lot of controversy has also emerged concerning the mercury preservative called thimerosol used in vaccines, as some believe it can cause autism.

The mercury in the vaccines causes autism, brain damage, and disease. The vaccines themselves cause the body to be in an unnatural state and set you up for major disease. In the Natural Cures book I give you several other books that I recommend to discuss vaccines. They are: A Shot in the Dark, by Harris L. Coulter and Barbara Loe Fisher; Vaccines: Are They Really Safe & Effective?, by Neil Z. Miller; and What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations, by Stephanie Cave, M.D., F.A.A.F.P., with Deborah Mitchell.

New evidence is constantly being uncovered and autism rates continue to rise. In October 2004, US pediatrician Dr F. Edward Yazbak provided another interpretation of the large overseas studies on which the vaccines' safety profile was based. He said the definitive Danish study of more than 500,000 children born between 1991 and 1998 could not rule out a link between MMR and autism because many children went on to get autism after the trial had been concluded. 'The most important age group to look at comprises children aged from five to nine,' he said. 'The number with autism increased from 8.

The connection between vaccinations and autism may be mercury poisoning. Thimerosal, a preservative used in many vaccines, contains about 50% mercury. The increases in the occurrence of autism are closely linked to the widespread use of thimerosal-containing vaccines. Mercury is well-documented as a cause of nervous system deterioration, decline in mental function, and learning problems. Certain symptoms of mercury poisoning are similar to autism, particularly defects in coordination and motor skills, visual disturbances, and immune suppression.

Increased research dollars are spent on developing new vaccines, but little has been done to investigate the possible connection between vaccines and developmental problems (as in the possible connection between the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine and autism). The possible side effects of immunization, including rashes, fever, diarrhea, autism, and even death, have been considered to be minimal when compared to the benefits.

It was determined that there was a close correlation between mercury doses from thimerosal - containing childhood vaccines and the prevalence of autism from the late 1980s through the mid-1990s. In contrast, there was a potential correlation between the number of primary pediatric measles-containing vaccines administered and the prevalence of autism during the 1980s.

Orthodox medical opinion claims autism is caused by genetic defect, but many people have been looking at the possibility that vaccines are at the root of autism. Specifically, the concern centers around thimerosol, a mercury-based preservative that was used in several childhood vaccines until 1999, at which time thimerosol was removed or greatly reduced. An estimated 80 percent of children show significant improvement after detoxification of poisonous heavy metals from their system.

In 2000, the US Congress passed the Children's Health Act, mandating its main research agency, the National Institutes of Health, to fund five centres of excellence into autism research. 'Here was an unprecedented political commitment to expand, intensify, and coordinate research into autism and services for children living with autism,' says Richard Horton, in his book MMR: Science and Fiction - Exploring a Vaccine Crisis. Or the government could have anticipated a steep rise in demand for individual vaccines, particularly against mumps.

In conclusion, it seems that a number of chemical factors play a role in triggering the onset of autism. In the case of MMR-triggered autism, the virus in this vaccine could be the final straw, triggering autism in a child who has already been damaged by previous exposure to chemicals from vaccines and the environment. Major improvements can be made. They center around a detox program, a good rounded supplement program, and a diet low in gluten and dairy foods.

Since the 1990s, there has been a tenfold or 1000-percent increase in autism, an increase which has been linked by some researchers to the organic mercury preservative commonly found in baby vaccines. A greatly increased incidence of juvenile diabetes has been correlated to specific vaccination sequences and to the number of vaccines given.

We must ask: why were faulty tires quickly recalled when they were dangerous while infant vaccines are not when there are so many claims they appear to cause autism and brain damage? If they are safe, use them. If they are not, stop using them. And if there is serious doubt about their safety, err on the side of caution. We should not allow the present autism epidemic to continue. The bottom line is: Decisions by federal or state agencies for either vaccines or the use of drugs such as Ritalin® should be recommended and suggested but not compulsory or mandatory.

The use of the mercury-based thimerosal as a preservative in vaccines has been associated with autism. Despite the evidence, mercury is still being added to vaccines at completely unsafe levels considering the fact that it is a known neurotoxin. A recent study conducted by the University of Calgary showed that mercury ions alter the cell-membrane of developing neurons in babies and young children, directly contributing to autism.
