Re: Say NO to Vaccines!

Also, diagnosis for those disease has improved in the same time. It may be that number of people with autism has not changed but our ability to detect has.

Re: Say NO to Vaccines!

The rate of autism has not been definitely shown as rising. Our understanding of autism has definitely increased and the number of autism diagnoses has also increased. It can be reasoned that we are better at diagnosing the varied spectrum of autism. In days past most of these people would have fallen under the blanket of "Mental Retardation". (I posted this without seeing Mr. Skibicki's post. I believe in the same rationale.)

It is also plausible that bread is a major factor in their diets.

Blame the internet!

Thimerosal.

They do offer Thimerosal free vaccines now, I think the only exception is the Flu vaccine.

It's also widely found in mascara...therefore everyone that wears mascara is in danger of becoming autistic.

The Army has made me take every vaccine available (smallpox, anthrax, etc) and I have no side effects...other than the uncontrollable urge to shoot people and jump out of airplanes.

They did this to me as well in the marines. This does not prove that it is safe though. They cancelled the version of Anthrax vaccine I was taking mid way through my cycle. No new troops could take but I had to finish my cycle.

That could explain why one of my friends, who is 36 with 2 small children, was just diagnosed with Aspergers.

Probably not, since it is now widely believed that Asperger's is a genetic disorder. Unless her genome was changed by her mascara...
