my knowledge on such things is a little rusty but i am almost sure you can't develop Autism outside the womb.

Yeah, the guy who tried to link autism to vaccinations fabricated data and lost his medical license as a result, however as we all know stupid ideas last a very long time even after being disproved.

She's a woman meaning that she's the womb.
Meaning that she's Autism.

Not exactly true. I have an adopted brother that developed autism because he consistently had too little to eat in his first two years which impeded the development of his brains. Still this vaccine causes autism thing is ********

In cases of children recently getting vaccinations, quite a few have been diagnosed with autism afterwards.

I think you're on to something with that logic. Let me try one!   
In cases of adults who were cuddled as babies, quite a few have been diagnosed with AIDS.   
Cuddling babies gives them AIDS.   
I should be a scientist!

no, no. It's actually quite possible. Kids are often vaccinated before being diagnosed with autism. However, this means nothing. Kids probably already had autism to begin with

I like how everyone answered you with a totally different answer.

There was some doctor who said vaccines cause autism.
His research was made up and he lost his medical license as a result.
However some equally retarded people started spreading it and now people actually believe it.

The idea was brought about and made popular by an ex-pornstar with no scientific evidence or experience and just wanted something to blame. So yeah...can be widely ignored.

False. It was a doctor with no scientific evidence, but with experience, and just wanted something to make him famous.

Well, noone really knows what causes autism. That's the problem. But some dumbass in England wrote a report saying that vaccinations cause autism because he got paid to say that it did. Since then he has announced that he lied and had his medical license revoked....even so there are many people who still believe this to be true even though the guy was lying!! People are stupid....
#3 to #2 - restfullwicked (05/21/2013) [-]
well you call him a dumbass but people actually believed him so i would rather not think about what that makes the rest of us.
thanks for clearing it up mind. never understood why people think they caused autism. there are no cases of adults developing it so i had just assumed it couldn't be done for kids either.

People like to have something to blame. It gives them feeling of control in cases where there just isn't any. It's the reason we have so many luck based rituals around and develop some really odd superstitions in our hobbies and lives in general.

After a bit more research,
Mercury effect on the brain....
"At age seven, we saw that the more mercury they were exposed to in the womb, the worse they were off in terms of language skills, attention span, motor speed, things like that."
Source: http://harvardmagazine.com/2004/05/mercury-on-the-brain.html
and now...
"Thimerosal is a mercury-containing organic compound (an organomercurial). Since the 1930s, it has been widely used as a preservative in a number of biological and drug products, including many vaccines, to help prevent potentially life threatening contamination with harmful microbes."
Source: www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/SafetyAvailability/VaccineSafety/UCM096228

so it's not far fetched to say that vaccines to have a negative effect on the brain, however I myself would rather have a vaccine with no mercury, than one with even trace amounts for young infants.

That's like saying you'll never let your kid drink tap water because they might get arsenic in their system.
User avatar #302 to #147 - ManicalMayhem (05/22/2013) [-]
Kids =/= Infants... I would never give tap water to an infant as well.

So, theoretically, you would be willing to get them immunized when they're a bit older? Say, 5? Before they go to school and get exposed to a lot of other germy kids?
