    It is a very sensitive subject, claiming that MMR causes Autism, or even that thimerosal causes autism. It is particularly difficult to prove or disprove, as scientifically reproducibility is essential. (when I was a student pharmacologist, we defined the double blind trial as, “I don’t know what I am doing and nobody else does either). Medicine likes Newtonian physics; it looks at things from afar as claims it understands them. Lyme disease (borreliosis) was really discovered by parents, as they saw changes as they happened. They saw what was there before (normal children) and saw what was there after (Lyme disease; autism) and sift through the only variables that occur.
    I have two children, now 17 and 16. Both my wife and I were brought up in the orthodox medical world; we were going to have them vaccinated. My first child had all his vaccinations up to the MMR, but he started getting rashes and a bad chest. The only variable was the vaccinations. We stopped at the MMR, and THEN did the reading on it. My daughter has had no vaccinations at all. She’s fine. We’ll decide later as to whether to give her the rubella one.
    The subject of vaccinations is difficult and that the presumption that the benefits outweigh the risks is sweeping.
    One thing is definitely for sure: everything that happens to you is potentially a trauma. That also includes vaccinations. The traumata of vaccinations can be seen to be cumulative and may cause ASD, but the precipitation of ASD may not occur in all children, so it cannot blatantly be traced back to the MMR; the MMR may only be the last straw. Things that we experience in our childhood, formative years, are far more significant that those same things occurring in adult years.
    Mothers have been looking at this for years. The mothers and fathers are the ones who have to deal with the reality of ASD (or wherever) on an everyday level; not just patients who attend a clinic and get the doctor’s Newtonian point of view.
    One e-group I have known about for a number of years is:
