Lots of parents still think that vaccines which is given to their children can cause autism. In fact, it’s simply not true. Immunization seems to have become a necessity in today.
The emergence of various diseases force us to maintain the body’s immune from a particular disease, the simplest thing that we can do is taking immunization. But unfortunately, there are some people think that the vaccine which is given can cause children suffer from autism.
A study revealed that one in four parents believe that some vaccines cause autism in healthy children. From a survey of 1552 parents, most of them still follow the advice of doctors to vaccinate children to keep the baby’s health. Because the latest research about it does not find a direct relationship between autism and vaccines.
“Nine out of 10 parents believe that vaccination is the best way to ward off the disease to their children,” said lead researcher Dr. Gary Freed of the University of Michigan.
“Fortunately, their fears of the possibility of children affected by autism no greater than the decision to inject the vaccine, so that their children can be protected from life-threatening disease later on,” he added.
In 2008, children of school age who are not vaccinated suffered outbreaks of measles in California, Illinois, Washington, Arizona, and New York. This was revealed Dr. Melinda Wharton of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Approximately 13 percent of the 140 children who fell ill that year to get treatment in hospital.
“Luckily all the children recovered,” said Wharton said, mentioning that measles can also be deadly.
“If we are not their vaccination, this disease will come back,” he continued.
Meanwhile, fears of vaccine with autism has a connection comes from a speculative study in 1998, which recently the study is finally revoked by the British medical journal.
Withdrawal was taken immediately after a regulation governing board of the British doctors study authors point out that it applies no less honest and ethical.
Meanwhile, a new study based on surveys at the University of Michigan to parents is done about a year ago, long before the revocation of the study in 1998. Many other studies also failed to find a relationship between vaccines and autism.
Advocacy groups such as Autism Speaks, also continued to call for parents to routinely vaccinate their children.
“It’s been proven many people who commit fraud openly. Maybe it will convince many parents that this should not happen again, “Freed said as a written summary of his study in the April edition published for the journal Pediatrics, released Monday (1 / 3).
A statement from the expert group in Philadelphia, United States asserted that the government should support this vaccination program. They believe that vaccines do not cause autism or developmental disabilities in children.
If your child do not get vaccination precisely, you become selfish as to take advantage of the thousands of other children who run it. We feel that attitude is unwise and unacceptable. Mentioned also that for doctors who “totally rejected” the vaccine could see another doctor to get a lesson.
“We call it a manifesto,” said Dr. Bradley Dyer from All Star Pediatrics in Lionville, Pa., United States.
Dozens of doctors, Dyer said, has been asked to inform the statement and only a handful of parents who have taken their children elsewhere.
“The parents say thank you for saying it. We feel better about it, “he said.
A recent study of this vaccine is based on an online survey to parents who have children aged 17 years or below. The survey uses a sample of randomly selected participants from a nationally representative.
Each family was given internet access facility if they do not have an internet connection. This is to ensure that families from all background can be entered. The result, 25 percent of parents agree with the statement that “some vaccines cause autism in healthy children”.
Approximately 29 percent of mothers agreed with that statement.Meanwhile fathers, approximately 17 percent of nearly 12 percent of parents said they would refuse the vaccine for their children if the family doctor recommended. Approximately 56 percent of participants admitted will reject the relatively new vaccine as preventive vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV) which can cause cervical cancer.
While others will refuse vaccines against meningococcal disease (32%), chickenpox (32%) and measles-mumps-rubella or MMR (18%). Parents who refuse HPV vaccine, which has been recommended to girls since 2006, presents a variety of reasons.
Meanwhile, parents who refuse the MMR vaccine, admitted that they had heard and read that the use of this vaccine will cause a lot of risks that are too large of whom suffer from autism in children.
According to Dr Gary S Marshall from the University of Louisville School of Medicine and author of a pocket book doctor about vaccinations, the result of this discovery will help a lot to help physicians communicate more intensively this issue to parents.
“For the sake of the children, we must think like a scientist,” he said.
“We (the doctors), need to do a better job of presenting more data is valid data for parents to understand if the scientists had reached the conclusion that the vaccine for children does not cause autism,” he stated.
