Do you realize how many studies have investigated a link between vaccines and autism?
To summarize, non exists. Deal with it.
If a link existed, you couldn't "sweep it under the rug".
Edit: "There's been a dramatic rise in autism, asthma, and eczema."
Autism can be mostly attributed to broadening of the definition. The latter two are thought to be due to lack of parasitic infections. Google "hygiene hypothesis.
"I've noticed that the little bodies of babies get bombarded with vaccines"
They also get bombarded with diseases they encounter naturally in the environment. Your point?
"Just look at the MMR vaccine. Three doses in one. Why is that necessary?"
To prevent M, M and R; the sooner one is protected the better. Spreading them out delays protection.
"I don't really see why all these vaccines are needed because I think that human body deals with illnesses a lot better on it's own(with a few exceptions)."
Tell that to the many who have suffered long term health complications as a result, or even died. What you "think" is not supported by reality.
Ignorance is rife.
There is quite simply no point doing any more studies to placate the anti-vaxxers. They always want "one more study" then you do that "one more study" and it still isn't good enough. If you won't accept the current data, there's no reason why you should accept more. Your position was never based on the evidence. It is entirely emotional.
