Superb deduction Holmes!
Next I expect you'll be saying there's no link between the rise in guns in free circulation and the increased murder rate in the US.. hey. guns don't kill people, people kill people right?
A brilliant deduction indeed! Rejoice for teacake has found the solution!!
On the other hand, you could stop being a prat and understand the issue. The issue has never been, "immunizations cause the problem". It's actually been about how the immunization is delivered vs it's consequences on an undeveloped immune system.
I guess we could toss some facts out there:
"In 1978, at Boston Floating Hospital that the incidence of autism was one in 10,000 children"*.. ok, we have a rough starting figure. 1 in 10k.. not a low number, but far lower than other infant issues such as heart murmurs, organ misplacement, etc (surprising how high those issues are).
The MMR vaccine got introduced in 1988; and it has been since then that various issues have started cropping up in our children. In 1999 (this is a full decade after the first concerns about the MMR combination was raised, back in late 1989) 'full spectrum' or profound, autism had increased by 273 percent among diagnosed Autistic children - which in itself is the rarest form of Autism.
As for Autism? It is estimated that the current real statistic has risen to 1 IN 150. I don't know about you, but if I was a parent that would be enough to concern me - and I'd want to know that either it DOES have an effect, or it DOESN'T - but, you know what answer politicians give? Only time will tell.
Do you want your kids to be the proof factor? If the statistic keeps rising, with everyone shouting that nothings causing it - this statistic WILL rise to 1 in 50, then 1 in 20... 1 in 2... then? Draw a line somewhere.
