    I did not say I supported or believed the article

    I posted in the debate section because I thought it might generate some debate, the title is certainly catchy.

    The journal article quoted seems real

    http://www.translationalneurodegener.../1/16/abstract

    Although that is not my field of expertise so I don't know if it is a legit resource.

    re. naming the whistle blower....are there not protections for whistle blowers?

    So many problems with the substance and credibility of the article.

    I wonder if people who have children with autism are offended by the articles claiming their children have autism because they vaccinated?

    I did see an article on FB the other day along the lines of `don't use my child as an excuse not to vaccinate yours' or similar.

    Do you mean a problem with the journal article or the internet article itself?

    I didn't think you did at first, it was just the way you replied to a pp that I thought maybe you believed the article. Even if it was a whistle blower who was anonymous - I would place more weight on it if it weren't on such a biased website with an agenda. Any website at all really - expect vocal anti vax ones!

    I'm not - I think two things about groups like these and articles like these;
    a) Autism is not worse than dying or being maimed, as anti vax groups seem to like to imply. They imply in fact that autism is pretty much the very worst thing that can ever happen to a person. And that just isn't the case at all.

    b) It makes me think they are so ignorant, they have just no idea about anything...vaccines, autism, vaccine preventable diseases and the complications that can arise etc.

    Thanks for sharing beebs. I appreciate your honesty. I believe the same things as you. My little cousins have autism and I couldn't love them more.

    This story has been circulating for a week now, I would think if there were totally no truth to the claim then CDC and/or William Thompson would have issued a media release refuting the claims. It is very unusual for them to remain silent.
    If it is true it is a shame that the opportunity to discover more was hampered. We really need unbiased and trustworthy sources, but it all seems to be either/or as far as vaccines go.
