Do vaccines cause autism? There are still many people out there who are convinced that vaccines cause autism. Not only do I think they are wrong, but the steep decline in vaccinations is actually going to create some very serious health risks for children. I have spoken on this before. However, I found this article by Shannon Des Roches Rosa who is able to articulate the issues much better than I can. I appreciate that she came from an anti-vaccine position at one point in her life. If you are interested in the question of the relationship between vaccines and autism, this is a great place to start.
