Japanese Data Show Vaccines Cause Autism

Data from formal peer-refereed medical papers show that vaccines caused autism in Japanese children and will do the same to children around the world. The number of Japanese children developing autism rose and fell in direct proportion to the number of children vaccinated each year.
This is a dose-response relationship -- the extent of the effect of a drug is related to the amount of the drug administered. Unusually, we see a dose-response relationship on a “population level” in a large sample of the child population of Japan, and as such, this is conclusive evidence of a causal association between vaccination and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) in children.
In 2005 a paper by two Japanese psychiatrists, Hideo Honda and Yasuo Shimizu, was published in an English psychiatric journal with English psychiatrist Professor Sir Michael Rutter also named as an author. The paper was claimed to be proof MMR vaccine could not cause autistic spectrum disorders.
The scientific reality is that the only thing Honda/Rutter teaches is that MMR vaccine cannot be the only vaccine to cause of autistic spectrum disorders – and not that it is not a cause of autism.
These three psychiatrists failed to provide the full picture. They made invalid claims based on inadequate research containing basic flaws. When the flaws in their paper are identified and corrected, the paper provides unusually strong evidence, not normally seen, showing vaccines as a cause of ASDs.
