Huffingtonpost.com reports that a new study shows that giving Hepatitis B shots to infant boys triples the risk of autism.
The study, published in Annals of Epidemiology, could mark the first link between a vaccine and the increase in autism rates.
Kirby is careful to point out that it does not mean Hepatitis B shots cause autism, but could provide a link to the rapid increase.
He also reports a new federal study is about to show the autism rates now at 1 in 100 U.S. children.
Mercola.com reports the Hepatitis B shot contains 25 micrograms of mercury perservative (thimerosal).
