    Default How a pro-vaccine doctor reopened debate about link to autism

    THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY CONTRIBUTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND NOT THE VIEW OF THE HILL


    A world-renowned pro-vaccine medical expert is the newest voice adding to the body of evidence suggesting that vaccines can cause autism in certain susceptible children.
    Pediatric neurologist Dr. Andrew Zimmerman originally served as the expert medical witness for the government, which defends vaccines in federal vaccine court. He had testified that vaccines do not cause autism in specific patients.
    Dr. Zimmerman now has signed a bombshell sworn affidavit. He says that, during a group of 5,000 vaccine-autism cases being heard in court on June 15, 2007, he took aside the Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers he worked for defending vaccines and told them he’d discovered “exceptions in which vaccinations could cause autism.”

    For decades, researchers and some medical professionals claimed there was no nexus between smoking cigarettes and cancer. Now, we know these were false claims, largely motivated by greed. I sincerely hope that all the researchers, lawyers, medical professionals, and all others defending the "no nexus mantra" of a link between vaccines and autism are not proven wrong one day. If a certain subset of children--via mitochondria disease or whatever--are harmed by vaccines, then the industry and government officials need to acknowledge this risk and suspend vaccinations for this subset of children. When in doubt, err on the side of caution.
