On the show Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson, it was revealed that pro-vaccine expert Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, whose testimony as an expert witness has been used to disprove a link between vaccines and autism, told government officials over a decade ago that vaccines actually can cause autism. The information has been kept secret until recently.
There is no evidence of an association between autism and the alleged reaction to MMR and Hg [mercury], and it is more likely than not that there is a genetic basis for autism in this child.
The following is directly from Dr. Zimmerman’s signed affidavit:
I clarified that my written expert opinion regarding Michelle Cedillo was a case-specific opinion as to Michelle Cedillo. My written expert opinion regarding Michelle Cedillo was not intended to be a blanket statement as to all children and all medical science.
I explained that I was of the opinion that there were exceptions in which vaccinations could cause autism.
I explained that my opinion regarding exceptions in which vaccines could cause autism was based upon advances in science, medicine, and clinical research of one of my patients in particular.”
Shortly after clarifying his opinion to the DOJ attorneys, Zimmerman was contacted and informed that he would no longer be needed as a witness for HHS. He had been scheduled to testify on Monday June 18th, just three days after his clarification to attorneys.
...went on to recite Dr. Zimmerman’s case-specific testimony without any mention of the doctor’s clarifications. In fact, Matanoski was even so bold as to say, “We know his views on this issue.” And so, the expert medical opinion of Dr. Zimmerman was deliberately used out of context to help the HHS win a landmark proceeding which resulted in a formal ruling that vaccines do not cause autism.
Dr. Zimmerman’s affidavit was signed in September 2018 and is just now coming into the light. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an attorney and vaccine safety activist, has called it “One of the most consequential frauds, arguably in human history.”
More specifically, I explained that in a subset of children with an underlying mitochondrial dysfunction, vaccine induced fever and immune stimulation that exceeded metabolic energy reserves could, and in at least one of my patients, did cause regressive encephalopathy with features of autism spectrum disorder.
Dr. Thompson has publically stated to Congressman William Posey and others that he and his colleagues in the CDC Vaccine Safety Branch were ordered to commit scientific fraud, destroy evidence and manipulate data to conceal the link between autism and vaccines.

The cure most definitely is not worse than the disease.
I would rather my children have Autism (which I still don't believe there to be a causation through vaccines) than die.
I do think that they should spend more time (or at least make the public aware if they are pursuing) identifying any potential genes that may cause a bad reaction in people...
but at this point in time, I believe that it is still better to vaccinate everyone so that herd immunity covers the ones that cannot get vaccinated.

I'll play my part here and go ahead and say it - blanket vaccinations just encourage weak genetics to spread.
How many worthless mouth-breathers do each of you encounter each day that could have been avoided if their great grandparents hadn't made it?

I have no idea how many they force on kids these days but it seems a lot more from what I've read on ATS.
*In 1950, there were 3 childhood vaccines typically given when a child entered school.
*In 1983, there were 10 recommended vaccines by the age of 6 years old (24 doses, 7 injections, 4 oral doses for polio).
*In 2010, the CDC vax schedule totaled 68 doses with more than half given by the time a child was only a year and a half old.
*In 2016, the schedule has increased to 74 doses by age 17 with 53 injections and 3 oral doses of rotavirus.
I don't trust the pharma corps.
Causation does not correlation. It could be package food, or something else .
Whatever the link is, there will be an economical change and life changes that come along with the truth.
Robert F Kennedy Jr claimed to be leading a review of links to autism – a widely debunked claim – but now says he hasn’t heard from the White House in months
The president has tweeted more than 20 times claiming – falsely – there is a link between vaccines and autism

They don't get vaccinated. Also if one looks at the number of reported AFM cases, they spike evey year around flu season when everyone gets their shots. See CDC chart in link below.
Death or autism you decide.
Could get autism either way with polio.
