Natural News) Now that it's been exposed that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been lying about the connection between vaccines and autism for at least 14 years, many prominent doctors and health practitioners are now coming forward to corroborate the fact that vaccines are, in fact, harming children.
Dr. Kenneth Aitken, M.D., a child psychologist from Great Britain, recently told The Telegraph that he's seen autism rates increase in conjunction with the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella.
"When I was in training, one in 2,500 (children were autistic)," Dr. Aitken told the U.K. paper. "Now, it is one in 250. At the moment, the only logical explanation is MMR."
Dr. Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and professor of clinical medicine at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, has expressed similar feelings on the subject.
"There has been a frightening increase in cases of autism that has not been explained," she contends. "There are a number of anecdotal reports from parents that symptoms of autism have appeared close to the time of the (MMR) vaccine."
Beyond just autism, childhood illnesses in general are on the rise. And according to Dr. Harris Coulter, Ph.D., a prominent homeopathic medicine historian and lecturer, vaccines are the most likely culprit.
