"A new study shows a direct relationship between mercury in children's
vaccines and autism, contradicting government claims there is no
proven relationship between the two.

Published in the March 10 issue of the Journal of American Physicians
and Surgeons, the data show since mercury was removed from childhood
vaccines, the reported rates of autism and other neurological
disorders in children not only stopped increasing but actually dropped
sharply – by as much as 35 percent."

Not that I don't believe the report BUT, people have been leaving California in DROVES in the last few years. Might that also contribute to a decline?

I am simply asking this out of curiosity. I am glad there if finally a study that proves the connection, but I would be curious to know if the rate of Autism has risen in say Oregon where 1 out 12 people are from California. (I truly believe the rate is higher than that but that is the official rate.)

but, don't you all know that that is a journal editted by pervs, idiots and people with no reputations?

And with the authors being Geier and Geier, well, they've always had it in for vaccines, so they must he biased eh?

I was thinking along similar lines, here comes the rush of discrediting. But still, is a step.

If this gets a lot of publicity, I bet most parents will just use it as a way of giving themselves permission to vax. Now they'll say "vaccines USED to be dangerous, but they're totally safe now because they took the mercury out and now the kids aren't becoming autistic."

This sort of result should make people make the mental leap that if there was one bad ingredient in there that was causing all sorts of horribleness (and they knew about it), perhaps there's a teeny-weeny chance that there's another bad ingredient and another bad consequence.

It's interesting how "they" always trash the people who do these studies, but are always unable to find fault in the studies themselves.
The discrediting usually boils down to some vague accusation like "You're a lieing poopyhead!"
