There is *no* link between autism and immunisation. This urban myth arose from a paper written by Dr Andrew Wakefield in 1998. This paper has been shown to be a fraud - Dr Wakefield cheated - it has been retracted and Wakefield has been banned from working as a medical doctor. A famous study in Denmark confirmed that there is *no* link between autism and immunisation - it looked at 440655 children who were immunised and 96648 who were not (big numbers!). There was *no* difference in rates of autism between the immunised and non-immunised children and *no* association between development of autism and age at immunisation.
Please get your children immunised.
Also, and I am not for a moment meaning to be rude here, Dr Google has neither medical nor scientific qualifications. There is a lot of delusional conspiracy theory nonsense (phrase used advisedly) about immunisation on the Web.
The reason that I stress this and again, to emphasise, I am not meaning to be rude, you have used a number of technical terms ("toxins“, ”natural enzymes“, ”chemicals“, ”intestinal flora", etc), which are often used by the delusional conspiracy theorists on the Web to support their beliefs, typically with little or no comprehension of the biomedical science involved.
Please stick with evidence-based health professionals (eg, your GP). If you would like more information about recommended immunisation schedules this site (and links therein) might help: http://www.immunise.health.gov.au/ .
