There is one difference between Cuban and American vaccination practices. In the United States acetaminophen is routinely advised in conjunction with childhood vaccinations to control fever and discomfort. The Cuban perspective is that fever is a natural response to the vaccination which doesn’t need treatment unless the fever persists or rises above 104 degrees. Acetaminophen is also a controlled drug in Cuba available only in limited amounts by prescription.
While there is no conclusive proof that acetaminophen causes autism, further study is warranted. Dr. William Shaw of Great Plains Laboratories has identified a historical pattern of increased use of acetaminophen whenever autism rates have risen. He has also identified how the drug breaks down in the body and how metabolic byproducts can interfere with neural development. With additional study, perhaps the key to unlocking autism’s causes is close at hand.
