In biology, pathogens are defined as any organism or infectious agent that can produce disease. Think back for a few minutes, when the autism wave first came and some honest doctors started recognizing the true causes. The CDC had increased the vaccine schedule for children from about 18 vaccines by age 7, up to a whopping 60 vaccines by age 7. That was a tell-tale change that exposed vaccines as having neurodegenerative properties that can permanently damage the immune system (think ADE), central nervous system, brain activity and proper childhood development of systemic functions. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) became an epidemic almost overnight, where instead of 1 in every 68 children developing it, it was 1 in every 10.
