The link between autism and vaccination has always been hotly debated in the media, and in recent months we have reported stories on Andrew Wakefield’s controversial claim resurfacing, and independent news sources claiming that a new paper had been found reopening the argument.
Most recently we reported on the CDC’s disclosure that Thimerosal, a mercury based preservative has been used in the Mumps measles and rubella (MMR) vaccine.
Unsurprisingly our readers voted a fifty fifty split in the vaccine vote. We would invite our readers to participate further in this discussion by leaving us a comment below. Do you think vaccines caused your child’s autism? Or do you believe that not vaccinating a child with the MMR is irresponsible?
