This research provides the jumping off point to answer that question. One commonality I see between younger and older parents is brain devlopment. A person's brain doesn't fully develop until around age 21. And as a person ages we also see decreases in cognitive ability. Recent research shows that this decrease comes with genetic changes. So perhaps this could explain why we see the increase in these age groups.


I see you are inquisitive. You might be on to something there. A person's brain isn't fully developed until the age of 21. Many of the bodies natural systems take some time to develop.

That's why it's so important that people are convinced (or forced) to inject newborns minutes after birth with the strongest available licensed aluminum adjuvant and Hep B inactivated virus. When people start to think too much it screws all that goodness up.

Nonsense.

I wonder how many of those research participants vaccinated their children?

Researches continue to ignore the big pink gorilla in the room. Only a process of elimination will put to rest the questions concerning the cause of the skyrocketing number of autistic children in the world.

A comparison study of vaccinated and vaccine free would be fairly simple and put to rest once and for all the questions and suspicions of vaccines being the instigator of auto immune disabilities. Findings either way is fine by me. You just have to wonder why it still has not been done.



And it makes you wonder why animal studies of this type are basically forbidden. Why is the full information from the VAERS system not in the public domain? After all, the public funds the compensation pool. They public should own all this data and it should not be secret.

Asking too many questions may cause autism.

Without a doubt.
Some on the spectrum are geniuses, I don't think we would have the advancements we have today without people with autism.

en.wikipedia.org...

Oh and I urge everyone to watch the film about Temple Grandin.

www.imdb.com...


And it would rob people of their livelihoods based on vaccine damage.

Why should grant money be wasted studying something that has time and again turned up a dead end. There's probably been hundreds if not thousands of studies trying to tie vaccines to autism. At least 99% of them have come back with a result showing no correlation. The only reason people continue to push the vaccine angle is because they want someone to blame.

When I was little kids weren't "diagnosed" with all these syndromes. They were just hyper or day dreamers.

We had a special needs unit in my grade school, and those kids were in wheel chairs, had bike helmets, couldn't talk or see ... those kids had physical/mental syndromes.

I think parents today look for an easy explanation as to why they can't get their kit to shut up and sit down, or why their kid day dreams a lot. The parents are so busy working 2 jobs trying to survive they don't have the time needed to really interact with their kids to get to know them as human beings. Nope, they just want some pills to give Johnny to make him more manageable.

I heard a parent the other day complaining about their 5 year old son who has "aggressive bipolar disorder". What? The kid is on Seroquel for godssakes! That's hardcore medication, a FIVE YEAR OLD! I overheard the mother saying, "The doctor was way out of line. He said that Johnny seems pretty spoiled. I mean, sure -- he has a lot of things that we give him...but they help keep him calm. That doctor had no right to tell me that I spoil my child!"

This. This right here is what is wrong with kids. Not a new pandemic with ADD and Autism. There has been a dramatic shift in the mental attitudes of parents this generation.

My mother is in her 60's and is a teacher of over 30 years. She taught 4th grade. I asked her if kids today are worse than 30 years ago. She said, "not really, but now they have all kinds of disorders they can assign to your kid and medication for them. . . Kids have always been, well, kids..."

You could probably correlate it to birth control using this "study". LoL! Or breathing.

Longterm Study in Guinea-Bissau (1 Kristensen I, Aaby P, Jensen H.:“Routine vaccinations and child survival: follow up study in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa”, BMJ 2000; 321: 1435–41) The children of 15,000 mothers were observed from 1990 to 1996 for 5 years. Result: the death rate in vaccinated children against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough is twice as high as the unvaccinated children (10.5% versus 4.7%).

Just a couple of tid bits from this source www.vaxchoicevt.com...

There are several more independent studies floating around out there, but given they have not the CDC stamp of approval folks like you will pay little to no attention to any of those independently funded studies.

The "Parent's Age" correlation isn't even new - this study is a larger one, but really it's old news. Incidentally, it used to be more strongly associated with the Maternal Age than the Paternal Age. They correlate all kinds of things to autism.

Here's a Google link: Autism correlation to parent's age

Here is a bit from a Forbes article on "10 Weirdest Things Linked to Autism"



10. Mothers. Not that mothers are necessarily strange, but everything we do seems to be linked to autism: Having children close together, having them in a certain order, being a certain age, having antibodies, having children in summer, having wombs and gestating embryonic and fetal humans in them, using Clomid, IVF, terbutaline, or labor induction, being pregnant near freeways, donating bad mitochondria to offspring, partnering with older fathers, passing genes to our children, eating, treating depression, getting an infection during pregnancy, including the flu, not getting an infection, being depressed, or behaving like refrigerators.



Yep. Mothers. And now, Father's get to join in the fun.

Your mum is right, kids are kids, let them run about, get dirty and be silly, that's what they need, not medication!
But we have become a society addicted to medication, everything can be magically fixed with a tablet, instead of trying to find the cause and a more natural way to heal it, after all our bodies are amazing machines that heal once we give it the right nutrients.

Back to the OP: older parents account for a tiny percentage of new autistic cases. And like somebody said already, if age was a factor then the whole European population must have been autistic during the Middle ages... up to the Victorian era!

There is a time to stop procreating, I've seen what happens when people procreate when they are too old to do so- and the kid ain't alright.

Sure he was pleasant and polite, but he wasn't...complete.

Quite possibly. He wasn't stupid and was a polite and likeable kid, but he was never on the same wavelength as the rest of us, in Hindsight I really feel sorry for him, his folks were religious to the point of fanaticism and he had to be coerced into socializing and come to think of it i'd really like to know how he is doing,

Because I am of an older generation, I grew up with the scare of polio, as vaccinations against polio didn't came to My Island until late 60s, back then, the only children with "disorders" were children born with mental retardation, my father had two cousins, females born like that, children in that group were not allowed to attend school and only those with financial means could afford tutors, the rest just hid the children in the attic, today is more acceptance of children with all kind of developmental levels in the school curriculum.

I remember that we didn't got all our vaccinations of the time until (no as many as today) we were in school years as that was were vaccinations were given, I was seven when I got my small pox vaccine and 9 when I got my polio.

I also remember when my father told me that he got his first vaccination at age 18 during his mandatory military service to think he survive by todays standards to be 18 with no vaccinations, The irony.

Now, babies become pin cushions as soon their body exit the womb, even before their first breath is taken. Then people still question why children have this days all kind of "syndromes".

I agree it most be the parents fault that their children can become autistic as they are the ones not reviewing the crap that is been injected in their new born

I'm not entirely sure where you got vaccinations from my post -- but I have no problem with kids getting vaccinated. Myself, and all of my classmates were vaccinated in the 80's and none of us came out with any "disorders".

This isn't an anti-vaxx thread.

Wondering is the irrational fear of vaccinations is a mild form of an autism-like syndrome?

Oh it is, have you read the OP's posts.
No one wants to discuss the study which I'm interested in, the thread became an anti vaxx thread from the word go just read it.

It might help if you cite all of the results from the follow-up study. Namely this part:


Mortality was lower in the group vaccinated with any vaccine compared with those not vaccinated, the mortality ratio being 0.74 (95% confidence interval 0.53 to 1.03).


Also, what does this have to do with autism?

So many more vaccines yet our environement is more sterile than ever! It's a wonder past generations made it trough...

I don't want to blame autism solely on vaccines but I'm faily certain that they are at least ONE of the causes.
