Vaccines cause brain damage and autism.
When a doctor suggested that he may have found a link between autism and vaccines and published a paper in a journal, all hell broke loose. This doctor has been discredited, and anyone who suggests that he was on to something is vilified. Why was this the reaction of the medical community and governments? Why did they not look into the claims and spend money doing the research? Why can they not explain the sudden jump in autism rates?
Should parents be expected to trust government and vaccine companies? Why did they remove the ingredient Thermosal from most vaccines? If the ingredient was safe, why did they take it out? Does it make sense too give babies do many vaccines? With aluminum, formaldehyde, and other toxic ingredients?
There are many medical professionals who believe vaccines are damaging children. It may be a case of too much of a "good" thing.
Why does Dr. Oz not get his children vaccinated for the flu?
Anyone who bring up the subject is labeled a anti vaccer and said to be a nut.
I will show how the government, media, and medical profession are in the process of the biggest cover up in history, and how the truth about vaccines is being suppressed.
Hi a little introduction if you don't mind,
My name's Will, A Sixteen year old boy, living in the Austin Metropolis and I'd like to thank JakeLamotta for making this debate. At a young age I was diagnosed with ADHD and later on Asperger’s Syndrome to which none of the people in my family other than my mother believe. I am severely allergic to most of the tree-pollens. I grew up in a predominately Christian household later to become an agnostic gamer.
Now, onto what we came here for.
A mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.
Source: Google “Definition of autism; http://www.google.com...
injury or harm, congenital or acquired, to the tissues of the brainresulting from inadequate oxygen supply, trauma, or other cause.
It makes very little sense to link the causes of Severe or Minor cases of brain damage to Medical Vaccines nor does it make sense to link the causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with vaccinations meant to combat disease.
C1: There is no link between Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Medical Vaccinations
According to the CDC vaccine safety concerns page: “There is no connection between Autism and Medical Vaccinations.”1 To further this argument the same page says “Vaccine ingredients do not cause autism”1
Why would the CDC a government agency lie to its own people about the possible chance of a child contracting Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Minor to Severe Brain Damage? The answer is in the simplicity itself; they don’t. The CDC exists to protect the people and in order to do that they need to share their relative knowledge on the subject at hand. Contrary to popular belief the CDC isn’t part of some ridiculous agenda, I digress.
With utmost certainty I can also clarify why there is little if not absolutely no connection between ASD and Medical Vaccinations.
C2: Vaccine Studies prove the “Vaccines-Cause-Autism arguments to be false” and Autism as it Develops
In an article done by the Huffington Post expressing the findings of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) after multiple tests the CDC and WHO have both confirmed “There is no link to Autism Spectrum Disorder and Medical Vaccinations”
The following is taken from the Article:
“When examined in the light of Hill's other six criteria, the vaccines-cause-autism arguments still do not hold up
To further my argument I will go on to say that Autism is a Neurodevelopmental disorder, that is to say, Autism is a disorder that mentally affects one’s developmental process deterring a “Normal Life” if you will. The definition of Vaccine as stated above is known to be a medical process before a sickness to neutralize the viral agent that causes said sickness. As we are all aware of a Vaccine is comprised of many numerous ingredients in order to:
1: Preserve a Vaccine
2: Combat a known Viral Agent
I will delve further in the later rounds and express the effects of Vaccinations and how there is no relevant or significant data to prove that Autism and minor and/or severe cases of Brain Damage do not occur because of Vaccines.
SN: This Post is short since I didn’t have time to fully complete it and I hope the people reading this take that into consideration. I will respond to my opponents argument if there is one to respond to with a 8000 character response, and I look forward to continuing my debate with Pro and hope that this will be an entertaining and enticing debate.
In the 1960's an autistic child was diagnosed in 1 out of every 5,000 children. Today the number is 1 in 50. This is an epidemic that needs too be made priority in our society. Yet it does not seem like this problem is being taken seriously. There is no cure, and nobody knows what causes it. And parents and people who claim there is a link too vaccines are vilified. Why does the government and the media keep telling us what it is not causing autism?
During the past quarter century, the CDC and AAP increased the numbers of vaccinations doctors are told to give American children from 23 doses of 7 vaccines to 48 doses of 14 vaccines by age five. Although today almost all childhood vaccines contain only trace amounts of mercury or never contained mercury preservatives, such as polio, pneumococcal, hepatitis A and live virus MMR, chicken pox and rotavirus vaccines, parents around the nation continue to report that their children are regressing physically, mentally and emotionally following receipt of multiple vaccines. These parents report their children are becoming chronically ill and disabled, suffering with autism, learning disabilities, ADHD, asthma, diabetes, intestinal bowel disorders and other brain and immune system dysfunction.
How many more children will be hurt before government, industry and paediatricians open their eyes and see what too much vaccination has done to our children?
More than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder. (Buescher et al., 2014)
Prevalence of autism in U.S. children increased by 119.4 percent from 2000 (1 in 150) to 2010 (1 in 68). (CDC, 2014) Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability. (CDC, 2008)
Prevalence has increased by 6-15 percent each year from 2002 to 2010. (Based on biennial numbers from the CDC)
The theory of vaccines causing autism comes from a source that should be trusted, parents. It was not evil Dr. Wakefield, or a Lawyer looking for money. The theory was born because parents with autistic children had the same story. They did not conspire or plan too bring down big pharm. They simply wanted to know why their children who were developing normally before their MMR shot were now sick and autistic.
My opponent points too a CDC study that says there is no link between vaccines and autism.
Where have I heard that before? No link? Ah yes, the CDC told the public that there was no link between smoking cigarettes and cancer. They were backing an industry that made billions of dollars a year. Sound familiar?

It is funny how history repeats itself. Another whistle blower has surfaced.
"William W. Thompson, PhD, Senior Scientist with the CDC has stepped forward and admitted the 2004 paper entitled "Age at first measles-mumps-rubella vaccination in children with autism and school-matched control subjects: a population-based study in metropolitan Atlanta," which has been used repeatedly by the CDC to deny the MMR-autism connection, was a fraud."
"Dr. Thompson has admitted the 340% increase in boys receiving the MMR vaccine "on time," as opposed to delayed, was buried by himself, Dr. DeStefano, Dr. Bhasin, Dr. Yeargin-Allsopp, and Dr. Boyle.
Dr. Thompson first called and spoke with Dr. Brian Hooker, who then revealed the information to Dr. Andrew Wakefield and the Autism Media Channel."
The video link I have added tells the story of deception.
1 in 50 children are diagnosed with autism and the CDC is covering up evidence that shows the link that Dr. Wakefield had found.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created when big pharm lobbied the government too create a program where parents could not sue them when vaccines damaged their children. The Pharmaceutical lobby gives more money to government than any other lobby group.
When a child is injured by vaccines, the family can not sue, they must go too the vaccine vourt to request compensation.
Over 2.5 billion dollars in compensation has been handed out by the program.
If vaccines were not damaging children, why would they be handing out over 2.5 billion in compensation?
In Italy, you can sue the vaccine companies. A recent ruling found that vaccines do cause autism and the family was awarded compensation.
In the USA people call you a nut for claiming a link. Doctors that have done honest research are pushed out of the system and lose their careers. But in Italy, vaccines cause autism.
Italian Court Rules MMR Vaccine Caused Autism
Valentino Bocca was given an MMR shot in 2004, at the age of 15 months. According to his parents, the change in his behavior was immediate. That same night he refused to eat, and he developed diarrhea during the night. It quickly went downhill from there. Within days he was no longer able to put a spoon to his mouth, and he spent nights crying in pain. His parents immediately suspected the vaccination, but were told this was "impossible." Valentino progressively regressed, and received the diagnosis of autism a year later.
In the final analysis, the Italian Health Ministry disagreed with the initial conclusion of the pediatrician, conceding that the vaccine was at fault.
As a result, a court in Rimini, Italy recently awarded the Bocca family a 15-year annuity totaling 174,000 Euros (just under $220,000), plus reimbursement for court costs, ruling that Valentino "has been damaged by irreversible complications due to vaccination (prophylaxis trivalent MMR)i." According to a featured article in the UK newspaper, The Independentii, about 100 similar cases are now being examined by Italian lawyers, and more cases may be brought to court.
"Luca Ventaloro the family lawyer, said yesterday: "This is very significant for Britain which uses, and has used, an MMR vaccine with the same components as the one given to Valentino.
It is wrong for governments and their health authorities to exert strong pressure on parents to take children for the MMR jab while ignoring that this vaccine can cause autism and linked conditions." The number of autism cases has risen sharply since the 1970s, with one in 64 British children affected," The Independent reportsiii .
Why is US Media in Black-Out on this Story?
It's well worth mentioning that this story has yet to be addressed in the US media... The Daily Mail was the first paper in the UK to talk about it on June 15iv. The Independent was the second to print an article, on June 17. The Daily Mail was the most substantive of the two. Their version included the following statements:
"Judge Lucio Ardigo, awarding compensation to the family... said it was 'conclusively established' that Valentino had suffered from an 'autistic disorder associated with medium cognitive delay' and his illness, as Dr Barboni stated, was linked to receiving the jab. Lawyer Mr Ventaloro explained yesterday: 'This is very significant for Britain which uses, and has used, an MMR vaccine with the same components as the one given to Valentino. 'It is wrong for governments and their health authorities to exert strong pressure on parents to take children for the MMR jab while ignoring that this vaccine can cause autism and linked conditions.'
So we know that the CDC, the media, big pharm, the government, and the medical profession are lying to the public. 2.5 billion in compensation, Italian court rulings, CDC scientists blowing the whistle, and thousands of parents story's show us that vaccines cause autism.
ScrinTech forfeited this round.
