Vaccine madness fact: The measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines were administered separately for a number of years with only slight increases in the incidence of childhood autism. That is prior to the introduction of the MMR vaccine in 1979… Following the start of this triple vaccine, the incidence of childhood autism showed a sharp and dramatic increase. Coincidence? Not even. Don’t risk it peeps! You can demand these in separate vaccines, or better yet, refuse them… they don’t work anyhow and had nothing to do with the lower rates of measles.
