    Vacines and autism a new perspective

    So they mention how the cdc did research in how vaccines didnt affect the children getting autism. Did the test check to see if the parents got the vaccines and if that is related?? Its a passed on mutation. So if the parents were vaccinated and didnt affect them directly could have changed just enough for their children. Maybe a investigation on that not for us to make money but ways to help us understand how it originated to better help the future.
