I’m not a doctor or a nurse but almost 10 years ago I had a vaccine debate against the slave society and a few were “brave enough” to dm me to ask questions the others probably vaccine’d their kids 😂😂😂 hey good luck ...
According to the #CDC
, only one in 5,000 children in the U.S. contracted #autism
in 1975. Now, in 2016, one in 68 children are diagnosed with the disease. “#Vaxxed
” makes the case that the CDC withheld critical information from research that could have established a potential link between autism and the #MMR #vaccine
, which combines the #vaccines
for the #measles
, and #rubella
into one shot. The CDC collected data during a 2004 study. It is this data from the MMR shot that has raised concerns about a link to autism — particularly among African-American boys who received the shot before their third birthday.
The root of “Vaxxed,” and the potential correlation between autism and the MMR vaccine was first uncovered by #DrAndrewWakefield
, a #gastrointestinal
surgeon, and researcher from the U.K.
In 2000, Wakefield testified before Congress regarding the possible connection between the #MMRvaccine
, autism, and #BowelDisease
in children. He first made the claim in a report published by him and a dozen co-authors in the February 1998 edition of The Lancet, a peer-reviewed British medical journal. It provided case histories for 12 children, exploring incidences of chronic #enterocolitis
, and #RegressiveDevelopmentalDisorder
—as well as immunization with the MMR vaccine. “In eight children, the onset of behavioral problems had been linked, either by the parents or by the child’s physician, with measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination,” the authors wrote.
The U.K.’s General Medical Council ruled that Wakefield committed ethical violations and failed to disclose potentially competing financial interests in researching a link between the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine and autism. The medical journal retracted the study in 2010 and Wakefield’s medical license was revoked.
Four years later #DrBrianHooker
, a researcher and a father of an autistic son, contacted Wakefield regarding recorded
