vaccines have not connection with the rise of autism diagnosis. the rise only has to do with new findings in the mental health field

I accept and look forward to this debate with you. You have failed to provide definitions so I am just going to assume the general public denotation of the words.

the main arguing point for people who believe that there is no like between vaccines and autism is the lancet medical journal article published in 1998. the paper stated that several children were given an MMR vaccine and later developed symptoms of autism. after a long investigation, a reporter wrote that the author of the article received money from legal aid board lawyers to write a fraudulent paper to use against vaccine manufacturers. as you can see the first real mention of a possible link between vaccines and autism turned out to be a massive lie.

You're forgetting a couple of things. Where is your proof that it was a massive scam? Vaccines have several side effects and are known to cause Autism at times. Depending on what vaccine you are getting the side effect could be a small chance for a cold, or a small chance for Autism. Vaccines come from a weak celll of the disease. flu vaccine has weak cells of the flu so the body system can attack those cells and know how to prevent it and fight it. A lot of times to much of the vaccine can be put in and side effects happen a lot. There are a couple of cases where vaccines have caused Autism and not just one major scandel.
