Back in 1995, Japan stopped administering MMR (Measles; Mumps; Rubella) because studies had suggested MMR vaccinations were causing an increase in autism in Japanese children. As it turns out, at least from what I have read, the country with the highest rates of autism in the world is Japan. How is this possible in what is considered to be one of the most economically advanced countries in the world with a “modern healthcare system?”
The earlier studies mentioned that dealt with the connection of MMR vaccines and autism concluded that even though the vaccine itself was abolished, the number of autism cases grew to 161 per 10,000 people. However, a study done in 2008 in Toyota, Japan suggests autism rates as high as 181.1 cases per 10,000 Japanese people. Although the MMR vaccination has been stopped, Japanese children continue to be vaccinated for Measles, Mumps and Rubella but not in one vaccination.
“Just months following the US Court of Federal Claims rejection of the claim that the MMR vaccine causes autism, here you will see data from formal peer refereed medical papers showing that vaccines caused autism in British and in Japanese children and will be doing 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:
