Green Vaccines part 1 when and if to vaccinate

Vaccines causing autism and other neurological disorders? This is a serious topic I feel very strongly about. If you are expecting or have an infant, these are facts that you should give serious thought to before your child is immunized. It is true that vaccines have benefits and it is also true that vaccines carry risk. I do believe that children should be vaccinated but it should be done with caution and with all the information, pro and con, given considerable consideration. I believe an alternative immunization schedule is safest.

Do vaccines cause autism? The jury is still out. Each child and each situation are different and can have a different outcome. I personally have seen the children of friends that have gone from healthy, normally developing children to children with autism very soon after vaccinations. I believe that as long as the debate continues that it is best to err on the side of caution. More research definitely needs to be done. Harmful chemicals need to be removed from all vaccines.

Autism Facts: 1 in 150 children, 4:1 ratio of boys to girls, 1 in 98 boys, fastest growing developmental disability.
