No fear of autism 3- The myth of vaccine
The cause of autism still remains uncertain. For the time being, it only significantly suggested the relationship between genetic factor and autism. Based on my work experience, many parents believe that the cause of autism is caused by a three-in-one vaccine (MMR) vaccinated by children when they are one year old. Parents may claims rumor that the vaccine contains toxins, which destroys the brain, and then lead to autism. Some parents have called for not vaccinating three-in-one vaccines to prevent such cases from autism. However, a large number of studies have shown that the cause of autism has nothing to do with the vaccine.
The three-in-one vaccine (MMR) refers to measles, epidemic parotitis (commonly known as “deafness”) and measles (mumps and rubella vaccine). It is used to prevent the above three viruses. In Hong Kong, children are generally given the first dose of vaccine at the age of one year and the second dose will be given at the first hour. If the “Vaccinosis Theory” is true, why is it that not every child has symptoms of autism?
In 1998, Andrew Wakefield, a medical researcher in the United Kingdom, published a report on the relationship between autism and vaccine, although Wackerfeldt noted in the report that their study did not confirm vaccines and autism. There is a direct relationship as he claimed in public. However, after the publication of the study, Wackerfeldt strongly stated that the vaccine has a direct causal relationship with autism and immediately aroused public concern (Ahearn, 2010).
Thus, the General Medical Council immediately sent an in-depth investigation of Wakefield’s research and research data, and eventually found that Wakefield violate the medical and research ethics. The investigation report pointed out that Wakefield is a dishonest, irresponsible and immoral person. In the study, he did not protect the child’s safety and benefits, but also referred him to providing lawyers with research proposals to help lawyers find scientific evidence against the vaccine manufacturer (Deer, 2010). In addition, a reporter found that Wackerfeld received a considerable amount of money from the lawyer group to initiate research and suspected that a serious conflict of interest was involved (Deer, 2004).
In order to confirm the veracity of the results, there emerged more medical research on the relationship between three-in-one vaccines and autism, but none of the studies could find the same results as Waukefeldt (Recame, 2012).
For example, in 2002, The Royal Free Hospital found the argument contrary to Wakefield. After reading the medical records of 400 autistic people, they found that the number of autism cases and gastrointestinal problems were not increase after the implementation of the triple vaccine (Taylor et al., 2002)
Therefore, studies have confirmed that parents do not need to panic vaccine bringing developmental impacts on children. In addition to the recent outbreak of measles in Okinawa, Japan. Parents should also give their children early vaccines to better protect their children.
