First let me apologize for coming here rather than doing the heavy lifting myself! You guys always seem to have the info <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
OK, so on one of my more mainstream lists someone wrote that she thought vaxes were good because Andrew Weil says that although thimerasol exposure has been limited, autism rates are still increasing. However, I just got the Mercola newsletter where he says exactly the opposite--rates have dramatically decreased. Oh yeah, Weil says "dramatically" as well. So who's full of it?<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

Yes, ASD rates are indeed decreasing - our DAN Dr. said he just received the "official" word of this just 2 weeks ago.<br><br>

These people say it is going down:<br><a href="http://www.jpands.org/vol11no1/geier.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.jpands.org/vol11no1/geier.pdf</a><br><br>
I am not inclined to believe them, though, for the reasons outlined here:<br><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2006/03/the_geiers_go_dumpsterdiving_y_1.php" target="_blank">http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/20...diving_y_1.php</a>

Excellent, thanks for the links. As to who I put more stock in, I swear, it's getting that I don't trust anybody. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> I come here because at least MDC has an agenda with which I agree.
