We found no relationship between the timing of MMR vaccine and the onset of either GI complaints or autism.”
Not that this will convince the Luddites of anything. They’d rather have their kids die of infectious diseases than embrace current scientific data. As much as I feel for kids with autism a lot of their misinformed parents have elevated it to almost a zealous religion of sorts.

It’s nice to see the data proving the facts whether the zealots will believe it or not. I’ve dealt with plenty of the parents that want to just “cure” their kids, like they have colds. My son is on the spectrum and rather than trying to cure it, I try to offer him ways to live his life as productively as he can.The parents that will go to any lengths to blame autism on something or to cure it just scare me. Furthermore, the doctors that allow it to go on, offering things like chelation (?) therapy should be put in jail.
Then we have people like Jenny McCarthy putting false information out there and the masses believe it.
