Weldon's approach is wide-ranging. For one thing, he's not putting all his eggs in the mercury-equals-autism basket, so to speak --he's not asking for more research solely to determine whether the mercury-based preservative thimerosal triggered a huge rise in autism diagnoses in the 1990s.

While that question has been the focus of attention -- and properly so, given the government's own decision to phase out thimerosal from routine childhood immunizations beginning in 1999 -- there is the prospect that other vaccine ingredients, and other side effects, may be insidiously at work.

Finally someone broadening the search to look at things besides just thimerosal and measles vax. That narrow focus was making all pro-informed consent people (I hate saying anti-vax) look kind of crazy, since there were a few unvaccinated kids diagnosed with autism (a VERY few, but they still exist).
