Hepatitis B Vaccine Triples the Risk of Autism in Infant Boys

Posted Feb 16 2010 7:58pm

A new study has shown that giving Hepatitis B vaccine to newborn baby boys more than triples their risk of developing an autism spectrum disorder.

The study’s authors used U.S. probability samples obtained from National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) 1997–2002 datasets.

The conclusion states that: “Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine had a 3-fold greater risk of ASD.”

The authors also noted that an earlier study by them found that hepatitis B vaccination was associated with receipt of early intervention and special education services.

The new study used a different database than their earlier study, and they found same results, suggesting a validation of their findings.

Autism spectrum disorder is a neurological disorder that affects how a child develops (see previous article on the autism basics).  Theories of the cause of Autism include toxic overload or attack from vaccines, food sensitivities/allergies, heavy metals, etc.  Essentially, when the body is overloaded with toxic substances, it must compensate by protecting itself from other stressors (ie sensory stimulation).  This being said, I would suggest taking a holistic approach to help children affected with autism.  Begin with the removal of nerve interference using alternative techniques such as chiropractic, and Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy. Then incorporate a gentle, yet effective detoxification program, and proper nutrition and diet under the instruction of your health care provider.
