Even though the vaccine-autism theory has been debunked, Halladay says it remains a compelling explanation to some parents -- often to the exclusion of risks for which there is scientific evidence.

"There’s a huge group of people that when you say environmental factors, they limit that to vaccines,” says Halladay.“They don’t think about all of the other things that could play a role.”

Who stood to lose if the vaccine-autism theory was proven to be true? The drug companies, the very same ones that have lied to us for decades about how "safe" their new drugs would be, like thalidomide that caused severe birth defects.

The drug companies have also been caught falsifying test results so they can get approval for new drugs. Examples include conducting tests in foreign nations outside strict guidelines within the US and hiring "experts" who promote cholesterol drugs when it's been shown that cholesterol is required for better brain and nerve function.

If we learned that the drug companies had paid off a laboratory to "debunk" the autism vaccine theory, it wouldn't surprise me in the least. They care nothing about lives when it comes to grabbing money thru fraudulent claims. Just read the list of harmful and deadly side effects they list in their drug ads!

What a piece of fiction. Bought and paid for by Autism Speaks, the turn coats who sold out and lobby against vaccine caused autism. They don't speak for me.
