hmmm. the pro-vaccine bloggers out there are going after hewitson's credentials pretty hard. they assert conflict of interest because she's affiliated with DAN! and her partner is a contributor to age of autism, and they have a vaccine injured son who is named in the omnibus hearings.
i don't really see what that has to do with her science, but i'm still trying to find her actual science. i mean, DAN! didn't pay for the study, did they?
eta: cripes, what a can of worms.
i'm so glad i don't read the pro blogs on a regular basis. man, they're pissed!

NIEHS: The CDC's VSD data failed left out numerous mercury exposures, including flu shots, maternal immune globulin, and the environment.
Gerberding: "CDC acknowledges this concern and recognizes this limitation."
NIEHS: Why did CDC investigators eliminate 25% of the study's population even though their elimination represented "a susceptible population whose removal from the analysis might unintentionally reduce the ability to detect an effect of thimerosal" and lead to "under-ascertainment" of autism cases?
Gerberding: "CDC concurs." The VSD were "not appropriate for studying this vaccine safety topic . . . intended for administrative purposes and may not be predictive of the outcomes studied."
yet, according to some of the diehards on the other end of this debate, the gerberding report means nothing, she didn't actually refute the worth of the verstraeten data, and there was nothing wrong with the study that isn't inherently wrong with all "ecological" studies, or something.
i spent a fair amount of time yesterday reading blogs i didn't want to know existed. they're all clinging tight to the party line, despite the gerberding bombshell.
anyone else read david kirby's pieces about this in huffingtonpost?
i was glad to see it covered there, at least.
It's a shame that this is the first time research is done with infant primates, when vaccines has been around for so long time.
It is hard to believe that mainstream media didn't cover this, imo this is huge news. I won't get all tinfoil hat on y'all , but doesn't it strike anyone else as odd that this admission was hardly covered by the news outlets?
