Myth 1. Vaccines Cause Autism
For some reason, it seems people want to never vaccinate themselves or their children. They fear the vaccines will cause autism to develop. First and foremost, vaccines do not work like that. Autism is a brain disorder that you’re born with, which can show within the first 2 years of life. You cannot just catch like it like an infection or virus. Even if a vaccine were to damage the brain, it won’t affect the way autism does. Damage to the brain from any random occurrence after birth is a form of TBI.
Neither is linked to autism or even downs syndrome. The myth of vaccines causing autism began in the 90s when a research study came out claiming it to be true. However, the testing was flawed and a lot of things were just made up. The man responsible for it had his medical license taken away even. The entire thing is proven to be crap now. Everyone linked to it has even come out against it. Vaccines do not now nor have they ever caused autism. This is simple, proven science, people.
