Kristin Cavallari Thinks Vaccinations Cause Autism

kristin-cavallari
Like Jenny McCarthy, Kristin Cavallari doesn't believe in vaccinating children.

The former reality star recently revealed that she chose not to vaccinate her first son, Camden, because she believes that certain drugs in the shot cause autism, a claim that was rejected by the scientific community.

"We didn't vaccinate," Cavallari, who is currently expecting her second child with husband Jay Cutler, told interviewer and former MTV VJ Lisa Kennedy during a segment on Fox Business. "I read too many books about autism."

Using Homefirst as an example, the 27-year-old mom explained that the pediatric group did not find any cases of autism within their non-vaccinated patients because that's how logic worksKennedy then shot back saying that mother had her children vaccinated and no one in her family had been diagnosed with autism.

"Now, one in 88 boys is autistic, which is a really scary statistic," Cavallari reasoned. "The vaccinations have changed over the years. There's more mercury [in the vaccinations]."

The Fabulist host also gave her opinions on other hot-button issues like the legalization of marijuana and same-sex marriage.

"I really believe if it doesn't directly affect you, why do you care?" Cavallari mused. "I think everyone is so hung up on how everyone should live their lives, so you should just take that energy and focus on yourself."

Sure, but maybe we should also dedicate some time into putting an end to preventable death, no?

    This makes me so angry. We do not know what causes autism. We know that vaccines save lives. Better a child with autism than losing your child to an awful illness.

    Former Pediatric RN here: Vaccinate your children! If your child is going to develop autism, he/she will develop autism w or w/o the vaccine. Autism is scary for parents, but it is treatable and not fatal. But if you choose not to vaccinate your child, you are increasing their risk of contracting a horrible disease that could lead to their death despite medical intervention.The science is real & you can refute it all you want because you hear certain celebs touting the "dangers" of vaccines. What those celebs don't know or what they fail to understand is the very real tragedy of children dying because they weren't given innoculations against diseases that are still very much found in this world. Especially in places like Southern California and New York, or any other city in which immigrants settle. I totally recommend these parents who don't believe in vaccinations to spend some time w parents of children who've died because they weren't immunized & then died from the illness
