When the Rate of Autism Increases

No Human DNA Before 1979

Before 1979, there was no human DNA in vaccines, although there were trace amounts of animal DNA in some. (Injection of animal DNA into humans is not considered dangerous because it cannot cause mutations.) View video clip to the right. 

Autism rates in America began to rise in 1980, after the human DNA-tainted vaccine MMRII was introduced. In the late 1980's, the rate of autism increased sharply in the U.S. This year corresponds with added fetal contaminants in (2), (3), and (4) below.  The third changepoint or increase in autism in America occurred in 1995, the year the vaccine for chickenpox, Varivax, was introduced into the U.S.

Animal DNA won't Mutate into Humans


These statistics are organized by the Birth Year of the child. (Children are vaccinated with M-M-R-II and Varivax at 12 months; Autism Disorder is generally diagnosed at age 3 or later.) Diagnostic standards for autism disorder (AD) were not lightened during the time period shown in the graphs, although more examples of behaviors were listed. Here 


Several vaccines which contain human fetal DNA have been added to the U.S. vaccination schedule over the last three and a half decades:

  1. M-M-R-II and Meruvax II were introduced in 1979 by Merck, the world’s seventh largest pharmaceutical company.  This vaccine, contaminated with human DNA, causes immunity for measles, mumps, and rubella. (The previous MMR, introduced in 1971, did not contain human DNA.)

  2. A federal campaign to increase the percentage of children being vaccinated for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella increased coverage from 42% to 82% for children born between 1987 and 1989.

  3. The firstDNA-contaminated polio vaccine, Poliovax, was introduced  in 1987. (Previous polio vaccines did not contain human DNA.)

  4. A second dose of MMR (M-M-R-II) was added to the official U.S. vaccination schedule for children in late 1989. The campaign was aimed at kindergartners, but could be administered 28 days after the first dose or later, starting at 13 months.

  5. The Varivax vaccine for chickenpox came on the market in the U.S. in 1995. It is heavily contaminated with human DNA:  It contains more DNA than virus.

  6. Hepatitis A vaccine Havrix was introduced in 1995, contaminated with human DNA                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

  7. GOOD NEWS: In June, 2020, Sanofi Pasteur discontinued use of aborted fetal cell line MRC-5 for Pentacel.  Pentacel and Quadracel are now free of human DNA.
