The Hepatitis B vaccine is considered standard procedure for newborns. But new research shows a link between the vaccine and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Learn more about vaccines and how they can affect your health.
Talk about an alarming health trend! A new government study released in October indicates about 1 in 100 children have autism spectrum disorders. This is a rapid rise.
For years, the link between vaccines and autism has been debated and contested. Some medical professionals assert that correlation isn’t the same as causation, especially for MMR shots.
But considering that current the US childhood immunization schedule calls for 28 injections with 11 different vaccines before the age of two, it’s still impossible to know – conclusively – exactly if and how childhood vaccination is associated with an increased risk for autism spectrum disorders.
Now, a new study published in the September 2009 issue of Annals of Epidemiology shows that giving Hepatitis B vaccine to newborn baby boys may triple the risk of developing an autism spectrum disorder.[iii]
To be sure, this doesn’t imply that the Hepatitis B vaccine causes an autism spectrum disorder, per se. But this study (along with others that are soon to be released) may show a link to the rapid increase, and support a hypothesized causal association between the Hepatitis B vaccine and ASD, at least in boys.
With all the anxiety over the flu, the swine flu and other illnesses causing a national scare, it’s time we take a step back and thoughtfully evaluate the necessity of vaccines and their appropriateness for you and your family.
By now, you’ve probably been urged by your employer and/or your children’s school to seek flu vaccinations this year.
