Not immunizations: The suggestion that autism is the result of immunizations has been thoroughly disproven. Many thousands of children have been injured and millions of dollars have been spent disproving this fraudulent idea. Yet, there are still web sites that insist there is a connection even without proof. See http://www.Cnn.Com/2010/health/09/07/p.Autism.Vaccine.Debate/index.Html.
