    That is strange, I have never in my life met one person who feels that vaccines has caused their kid to have autism. Where are all these people hiding?

I don't think it's as simple as ' X vaccine causes autism' but I do think they may be somehow linked even if its just that some individuals are predisposed somehow and the vaccine aggravates it (all based on anecdotal evidence of course).

    Do you mean IRL? I've "met" people on here who were adamant, but never IRL either.

    I know 3 people with children on the spectrum, none of them blame MMR either. All of them actually say their child showed signs well before the vaccination.

    Either have I. Considering I only know 5 children (in real life) that are not vaxxed, that's a lot of children that are.

    I have one child on the spectrum and another who has been referred for ASD assessment, so we hang out with a lot of Autistic kids, and I have never heard one parent blame vaccinations, most at our ASD groups believe that it is genetic.

    I think that is what the most current research suggests also.

    I have a good friend from Uni her son has autism (17 yo) I think. She swears a vaccine that used to use copper or lead? I can't remember what one caused her sons autism. In saying that she is still 100% pro vax
