A new study shows that autism causes vaccines.
@Idiot, this might actually be true...
@Idiot, there is a Mercury-based ingredient in vaccines called thimerosal which is used to prevent them from being contaminated, there were studies done years ago suggesting that mercury exposure led to autism in infants but no concrete evidence to support it, and thimerosal is a different type of mercury. There is also controversy because some families in the US who believe their child became autistic because of vaccines and are receiving long term financial support by the government for their children's medical bills. But there is no evidence to suggest vaccines cause autism to date. Share this information to defeat your ignorant friends and enemies!
@VibratingButtChomper, I mean I doubt there is no evidence or the government wouldn't pay them. On the contrary, the government probably paid them to shut the hell up, not because they felg bad for some children.If anything I would argue that the government conceding to their point is enough to warrant caution.
(I, by any means am not saying that they do cause autism nor do I care. I'm just saying a government pay out is something that should be considered)
@Downvote God, The government didn't pay out to get them to shut up, the government paid out becuase they had no choice. Lazy, lifeless people will do anything for a dollar, including manipulating the law in court to drain others of thier money. I'm sorry your child has autism, but I highly doubt it has anything to do with vaccines, autism is one thing, measles, small pox, and polio, that's another. Don't risk other children's lives for the benefit of your stupid, selfish beliefs, and if you insist on doing si, at least home school your kid.
@NotA90kid, I totally agree, but on can noy manipulate the court system, they would have had to prove that the government was a fault. That's all I'm saying, either you think a group of housewives strong armed our justice system or the government paid them off. Either way the government sucks ass haha
@Downvote God, Haha, you arn't wrong, it does. But today, if you play your cards right, being unable to prove it is enough to work with.
@NotA90kid, true... I think the buy out gives them credibility though. Pull the $$$ and this issue would be long dead.
@Downvote God, "one cannot manipulate the court system" LOLOLOL ROFLMAO!
@VibratingButtChomper, Mercury was actually removed from several vaccines years ago and autism rates are still the same. Wasn't the Mercury.
Vaccines don't cause autism, please don't be this level of stupid people!
@Dephenistrator, people need to quit using a biased paid for study to try and prove it does, or some of the ingredients used in making them that are completely removed
@Dephenistrator, I heard they cause cancer. I'm not sure if its true but I've heard
@Dephenistrator, I would say, take a look into it.
@Dephenistrator, autism is a genetic disorder you poopyheads
@MyLonewolf25, they even funded at least one study that showed there was no correlation
@qzw444, nope! No definitive proof
@MyLonewolf25, definitive doesn't even need to be there haha
@Dephenistrator, my gf did a school project on this and the reason people say it causes autism is because you typically get your shots right around the time that your autism is become noticable. so therefore they find autism after the shots and blame the shots.
@Dephenistrator, these parents claim that their babies "changed" after the vaccines... Maybe they didn't realize their kids were functioning at a lower level to begin with... That and autism differences are noticed Later Rather than sooner
@Dephenistrator, I'm looking thru the other comments and the votes and it pains me to see, pardon my rudeness, how many "unintelligent individuals" are on this app that honestly think vaccines cause autism.
Shots fired. Then injected.
@Poisonwolf, Then gave autism.
Well clearly you don't know how to play with a dead child
Some vaccines are important, such as the polio vaccine. The flu shot on the other hand isn't really needed. I haven't had a flu shot in years and the last time I had the flu was soon after my last flu shot.
@RogueDarkness, ya but flu shots can save elderly, people with poor immune systems, and small children which is a large amount of people
@RogueDarkness, right? Fvck flu shots
Why are there opinions disguised as funny pics in my funny pics?
@ShobieShy, because thats how the general media operates now. Try to watch any comedy series without them smuggling in a biased political comment, you won't find any modern ones that haven't done it
@Dephenistrator, my comment was more or less a joke. It was a half serious attempt to get top comment. Lel
I don't think the intention of this is say that vaccines cause autism, it's more to prod at the the people who are more afraid of autism than the death of their child.
My flu shot gave me the flu not lying
@Screw YOLO, Flu vaccines are "dead" (even though viruses are not living organisms), so that's not possible. Sometimes when your immune system is learning to deal with that particular strain it will present some symptoms. If you legit got the flu, it's not from the shot. The vaccine takes a couple weeks to fully prep your immune system, so you probably just got the flu. Or it was a different strain than your vaccine was.
I don't mean to cause any controversy, but sure one shot might not cause autism, but getting 60+ of them within 2 years can do something =/
@Blagen, i agree. A baby/ toddler shouldn't be getting all those chemicals in a short amount of time. Plus, people have allergies to things like shellfish and bee stings and peanuts, who's to say a small amount of the population can't be allergic to a chemical in the vaccines. My sister is autistic so I probably have a biased point of view but I don't care what others think.
@Deunan, actually vaccines are mixtures containing fragmented virus' that can't harm you but can still let the immune system do its natural thing to identify the illness as an intruder. Anything in it is highly marginal and less dangerous than the risk of the baby getting those illnesses
@Blagen, might do 'something,' but definitely won't cause autism. Autism is genetic. It runs in families, is more prevalent in tech industry places like Silicon Valley, and is likely linked to the same gene(s) that cause schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is a fact that autism is not caused by vaccines.
It's also my opinion that autism is not a bad thing.
@Ruupasya, it's not a definite thing, but some scientists have linked autism with ADD and ADHD claiming it's possibly a mid stage of evolution of the brain with different side effects. They connected many of the problems being linked to parts of the brains handling of attention span being exaggerated. This also helped explain savants and other extreme cases but again it's a theory in it's early stages. Proof of this will take years
This pic is wrong, and it's so dark
Wanna make a bet that's true?
If I was to guess what actually causes autism it wouldn't be the vaccine itself but the needle that administers it.
@Polaroid, you can't be that stupid. A needle cannot distribute autism, since autism is a genetic disorder and not a virus or bacteria
Guys I think this one is a joke. I think the ape is supposed to be depicted how the person who heard this feels. Sort of like a facepalm type feeling.
I won't comment about the vaccines part, but the second part is a beautiful way to think :)
Thank you outspoken orrangatang (phone didn't auto correct...)
The tension in the comment section is tangible...
Boy I'm glad I'm not an orangutan, I would hate to worry about this.
