Is there any scientific proof that vaccines cause autism?

Is there any scientific proof that vaccines cause autism?

I am going to vary my answer from others already great answers to try to give a more broad answer. I will discuss risk vs reward and their perceptions and thus also include vaccines, lead poisoning, cancer, and autism.

Assertion #1. First off, lets all acknowledge that autism is a hot button issue - and that people in general will search for answers that *prove* they are right; and try to convince others to their beliefs. Distraught parents who’s children have autism desperately try to make sense of the situation (and who to blame). The blame almost all of the time is that the parents defective genes.

What are the main points (if any) for vaccines contributing to autism?

Autism is a condition of living humans. Since vaccines make it much more likely that a person will survive, it also makes it more likely that they will have autism, as well as male pattern baldness.

Vaccines do not cause autism. The “research” that tried to show that it did was falsified, and has been repeatedly debunked

Why is there a shingles vaccine but not a herpes vaccine?

Why is there a shingles vaccine but not a herpes vaccine?

Every time you get a herpes outbreak it acts like its own vaccine (sort of). And the effective shingles vaccine (Shingrix) has substantial side effects, but prevents a fairly serious and common disease. Herpes simple, although common, is not that serious and there is effective drug treatment. A vaccine for primary herpes infection in children would likely not be accepted in todays anti vax, litigious climate.

 Why do people think that vaccines cause autism?

Why do people think that vaccines cause autism?

In 1998, a study by Andrew Wakefield was designed to find out if there was any connection between the MMR vaccine and certain gastrointestinal symptoms. The study itself had nothing to do with autism. It was published in the Lancet.

It was a deeply flawed study, involving only twelve children. There is speculation they were chosen as likely to provide the results Wakefield wanted. Permissions were not handled correctly, and data was misrepresented. For example, with one boy who got sick 7 months after his vaccine, that was recorded as occurring right after the vaccine.

Why do live vaccines make you dizzy?

Why do live vaccines make you dizzy?

Are you sure it is because of the vaccine? People usually don’t know whether a vaccine is live attenuated or not. Perhaps it is your anxiety about getting a shot that is causing the dizziness. With all the negative incorrect hype out there, I wouldn’t blame you for feeling anxious. Live attenuated doesn’t mean that they are shooting you up with a live disease. Attenuated means it is the lowest level possible to give you protection without giving you the disease.

Not all of them. Many of them are influenced by celebrities who champion denying vaccinations. People think movie stars and other celebrities know everything and that they must be important and informed. After all, they are great actors and command huge followings.

Such august public figures should know the truth. These celebrities may have children with autism and attached the blame to an incidental vaccination, when the two are not related. This has begun the search for answers that has led in wrong directions.

Sheer willful and irrational ignorance.

Logical parents who truly want the best for their children will realize that vaccinating them with at least the basics, the tried-and-true ones that have been around for generations and have saved countless lives, is in their best interests. They understand, or at least have done enough research, that a vaccinated population is a healthy population. That the vaccinated population protects those who have health conditions that prevent vaccination via herd immunity

Of course it is ok to not get a flu vaccine. All medical procedures should be a choice. There are other ways to protect yourself from the flu….like eating good food, drinking clean water, getting out in the fresh air, exercising, practice good hygiene. And if you do get the flu after doing these things you should come through it just fine.

No, it is not common to have neck stiffness after a meningitis vaccine. If you are running a fever, or have purple markings on your legs, go to the ER NOW! You may have contracted meningitis prior to the vaccine.

Now there could be other reasons for a stiff neck, like sleeping on your neck wrong. You could have a muscle spasm. Even the flu can make your neck feel stiff.

AIs currently are not wildly different from the computer or laptop on which you typed the question. They’re a box with some circuitry and input/output gizmos. Your laptop can’t even make you a cup of coffee - why would a different box of circuits be able to make vaccines?

AI programming is about information - how it’s acquired/learned, manipulated, analysed, and so forth. An AI might be programmed to search our existing body of immunological research, to come up with ideas for new vaccines - but data mining and bioinformatics is better at that job.

Because vaccines are given to large numbers of healthy people, many of them children, they are held to extremely high standards of safety.  This is not to say they are totally safe; no medicine is absolutely safe.  But they are much safer than most medicines.  You should follow the vaccine schedule recommended by health authorities in your country.

I don’t know what is in paradol, but when I’ve been given protective protection against rabies nobody has ever cautioned not to do this or that. If you were to take prescription medications there might be something among them that could strongly affect your immune system. If you get your rabies vaccinations from somebody who has access to your medical records there shouldn’t be a problem.

Is there any better way to prevent illnesses than through vaccination?

Depends on the illness. For lung cancer, I highly suggest you don't smoke. Wear sun screen religiously to reduce the risk of skin cancer. Perhaps stay away from loose asbestos and radiation. Eat healthy and exercise. Go to therapy every once in a while. Don't go petting wildlife that is acting strange…or in general…

Of course there's things like measles. In which case, the best way to avoid vaccines are to surround yourself with vaccinated people to take advantage of herd immunity. Of course that one only works if everyone else gets vaccinated if they can.

I had the advantage of having met him previously when he was touting the idea that the single measles vaccine had affected the lining of some peoples colons and led to Crohn’s disease many years later. I checked out his work, and the follow ups - it was one of those ‘unrepeatable’ results you hear so much about these days. He said he’d found measles virus protein in the intestinal linings of Crohn’s sufferers but no one else could, and when the other teams used DNA probing, a more sensitive technique than the immunoassay Wakefield had used, they turned up nothing.

Are there any downside to vaccines?

Vaccines are almost always presented as safe, 100 percent medications.

All vaccines have the potential for serious side effects and long-term health problems. All these risks are openly acknowledged on the CDC website and/or on the package effective solutions with very few – if any – side effects. Parents allow their tiny babies to receive dozens of shots with very few of them ever being told about the serious side effects associated with these inserts of the vaccines themselves.

People who do this have no knowledge of science and epidemiology. Ask them if there was an outbreak of Ebola in their town and if there was a new effective vaccine- I use this example, so they can't claim herd immunity- would they line up for the vaccine. Ebola is one of the most deadly and contagious diseases around. As a doctor I would be terrified, as I would have to look after them and despite all precautions I'd be at high risk. Living in a place with outbreaks of deadly diseases and no vaccines is one way to play Russian roulette,but with far worse odds

That’s not how vaccines are made. One person doesn’t confer immunity to another person, which is what you’re implying.

To create a vaccine, an antigen on the surface of the virus has to be injected into a person to induce an immune response. That antigen must be put into a vaccine. This will take years to accomplish.

This is not a good idea. Vaccines that are approved for human use are tested both for safety and for efficacy. (I am thinking the efficacy part of the equation here may end up being more significant, but who knows!)

It’s not uncommon for candidate vaccines to successfully confer immunity in an animal model, and go on to fail efficacy trials in humans. Each species has a slightly different immune system.

Do anti-vaxxer really think vaccines cause autism? How do they explain a vaccine changing someone's

Autism is a behavioral diagnosis for a set of symptoms that are all physically based. There are roots to all illness, and discovering what they are helps a person to improve and heal their situation.

For example, Andrew Wakefield and his colleagues asked what the connection was for autistic kids that showed mmr fragments, as well as caused IBS, in the guts of 12 children. That was in 1998.

A lot has been learned since. Including the fact that an industry-owned media and strategists created a propagandistic war between injured and disabled people and the industry.

Hep A, B, C vaccines are as medically useful as an ankle sprain vaccine. All three are profit-oriented medical science misconduct.

Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver and nothing more. Some individual’s liver has swollen. Why? Why did this person’s liver swell, and just them, and what factors caused it?

It turns out, from real medical science studies, the non-biotech, non-pharmaceutical corporate espionage/piracy/full-time disinformation and false advertising MO, that illicit drugs, alcoholism and destructive prescription medications intoxicate human livers beyond normal functioning capabilities. Hard drug addicts, heavy boozers and occasional victim of prescription medicine account for just about every genuine case of liver inflammation, of which is no room or necessity for the fantastic story of some infectious foreign pathogen.
