Yet in his book dedicated to finding the roots of autism, that’s not what he found.
In chapter 8: Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism, Dr Hotez, explained that the vaccine-autism link has no scientific basis and claims to the contrary are either false or a pseudo-scientific half-truth.
In Chapter 9: What Does Cause Autism? He explored how far our knowledge on the genes and brains of kids with autism has come. We now know that that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) begins during pregnancy. But this syndrome only really starts to show itself between 18 and 24 months because a child’s brain is going through massive growth at this age, so that’s when many social developmental milestones happen (smiling or rolling over); milestones which many ASD children miss.
Incidentally, this is the same age children are given their vaccinations. But the science definitely says that’s exactly what it is, a coincidence.
So should you trust the MMR vaccine = YES
