The founder of the National Vaccines Information Center raises profound questions about the relationship between the increase in childhood vaccinations and the rise in chronic illness. Today, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention admits that 1 American child in 166 has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. In 1970, autism affected 4 in 10,000 children. By 1991, 5,000 autistic children were in the public school system; by 2001, that number had grown to 94,000. Today, nearly 3 million children in public schools are classified as learning disabled. In 1976, there were 796,000 learning-disabled children in public schools.
