Once again, the incidence of autism has risen. With data released about children born between 1994 and 1996, a 50 percent increase in the autism rate has been reported, with 1 in 91 children affected by the condition, including 1 in 58 boys. In that period of time, the recommended vaccine schedule for children had jumped from 18 to 36, and for the first time included the mercury-containing hepatitis B vaccine immediately after birth. The period also saw a tripling of the amount of mercury and other heavy metal toxins (such as aluminum) in the overall schedule of vaccines. The correlation between these environmental factors and the rise in autism is unmistakable. Concerned parents should consider the long-term side effects of full schedule vaccination, and can review the safety of any vaccine at nvic.org.
