Of course I am going to respond with it's an article from 2009, and as of Feb. 2009, 40 million doses of Gardasil have been given. One big stand out is the single word 'unconfirmed'. Hello. Also, it has not one thing to do with autism. Gardasil is totally optional and a parental choice. No one forced any parent to give their child that vaccine.
You come on back when you have confirmation, not unconfirmed.

Just like that one who I pointed several times that I'm not getting disability payments. I don't know how it is with socialized medicine in canada. It is NOT the same in America here

Because in America here, married women can NOT get disability payments. I might qualify for retirement payments once I hit 65. But that is a good thirteen years in the future.
First, no one cares who get's disability or not. It has nothing to do with anything other than some things should remain your own private business. It's untrue that those who are married cannot get SSD. It all depends on income levels so it is possible a married female can get SSD.
Second, the anti vaxxers denial of your diagnoses then only confirms their denial of misdiagnosis is quite an invalid argument on their part, so it's rather funny they are arguing it and attacking you over it.

Vaccine pusher, thanks you confirmed my point for vaccination and death. Imagine how you g to get immunized and but you end up death. Thanks. The 40 millions doses was sold in south america, since they are less informed of vaccines autism and death links.

I've talked with several relatives. Both by blood and by marriage. And in all cases where my female relatives got married. They all lost their disability payments. The men in other words, got to keep theirs.

Sorry, those deaths are unconfirmed to cause. Also, your article references death via VAERS, so no. It's not South America. HellooOOOOOoo! Guess you might want to research which countries and states licensed the vaccine for use. An example would be the 2009 scare of the 14 year old who died in the UK shortly after a Gardasil vaccine. Anti vaxxers went wild over it which you were one of them. Turned out totally unrelated to the vaccine. She had a huge tumor in her chest no one knew about, and that's what she died of.

Gardasil has nothing to do with autism, or less informed. It's all about vaccine choice and who chose to use it.

Look it up. It has to do with income of the spouse, not gender. But who cares. It's off topic.

Either way, unlike most genetic based syndromes. Autism has the highest amount of genes affected by DNA mutations.
.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-24381462 They found those with an ASD were more likely to have just one copy of certain genes, when they should have had two.
...UK experts said genetic factors were one promising area of research into the causes of autism.
...About 1% of the population has an ASD. They can run in families - but scientists have not identified a cause.
.
http://www.dnaindia.com/scitech/1795387/repor... “Autism is the most inheritable of neurodevelopmental disorders, but identifying the underlying genes is difficult since no single gene contributes more than a tiny fraction of autism cases,” Rajini Rao of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. said
.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-228... The study confirms that there is no single gene responsible for autism. It is thought to be the result of many different underlying physical and genetic factors.
.
This one can to a point explain why some kids are born into families with previously unknown cases of autism.
http://www.nature.com/news/fathers-bequeath-m... By starting families in their thirties, forties and beyond, men could be increasing the chances that their children will develop autism, schizophrenia and other diseases often linked to new mutations.“The older we are as fathers, the more likely we will pass on our mutations,” says lead author Kári Stefánsson, chief executive of deCODE Genetics in Reykjavik.“The more mutations we pass on, the more likely that one of them is going to be deleterious.”
...Fathers passed on nearly four times as many new mutations as mothers: on average, 55 versus 14. The father’s age also accounted for nearly all of the variation in the number of new mutations in a child’s genome, with the number of new mutations being passed on rising exponentially with paternal age. A 36-year-old will pass on twice as many mutations to his child as a man of 20, and a 70-year-old eight times as many, Stefánsson’s team estimates.

Another Monday laugh, courtesy of the Winnipeg dummy.

When he says "Heap of garbage", what he really means is that he doesn't want to believe it, but he doesn't have any evidence that it is incorrect.

It is a Monday Funnies! Instead of seriously backing up his claims, he wastes his time with one-liner attacks!
Still waiting for his evidence of his claim about 'vaccine acquired mutations' over here

I have a feeling we'll get Tuesday Funnies, and Wednesday... Thursday....!!!!

Looks like the troll does not realize that the British King George V changed the name of the Royal House from that of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to it's current name of Winsor. And that was done during the anti-German fevour that swept thru Great Britain at the time. Edward VII was the last one to be known as of the house of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
.
The House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was a German ducal house name and it descended from the The House of Wettin.
.
And the House of Wettin is a dynasty of German counts, dukes, prince-electors (Kurfürsten) and kings that once ruled the area of today's German states of Saxony (953 years), the Saxon part of Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia for more than 800 years.

Gulf war syndrome is off topic. The only interesting thing was Dr. Theoharides site, under Genetic Mutations
"In April 2012 this study was published that looked at genetic mutations in a set of autistic children that did not have any other autistic family members. The purpose of that was so that the parents most likely did not have any gene mutations that cause autism."

You should had read the linked study. You're just going to kick yourself for one, another anti vaxxer abuse of a study and two, you made the Monday Funnies:

"In addition to highlighting the network&#146;s potential role in autism, Eichler&#146;s team also studied whether the sporadic mutations they found in children came from mutations in a father&#146;s DNA or a mother&#146;s DNA. Eighty percent of the new mutations, they found &#151;both those linked to autism and those seen in unaffected siblings &#151;came from a father&#146;s DNA."

Had to remove the coding so anti vaxxers could easily comprehend what they linked to. It isn't every day an anti vaxxers shares a genetic finding having nothing at all to do with vaccines, but with the father's DNA causing autism!

Let me remind you, that's 80 percent coming from the fathers DNA. What even makes Monday Funnies even funnier, is Winnipeg believed the good doctor Theoharides site and scam!
Now, just who IS the "dumbo"??!!

The gent from Canada used to claim "Millions and millions" of people had died from vaccines.His latest "research" claims "32 unconfirmed deaths" after 46 million doses of a certain vaccine have been given.Not millions and millions,but a "unconfirmed" start,huh?

Your link. And you say there are no genetic studies! You provided one, showing 80 percent even!

garbage, the genetics doesnt explain 85% of all autism cases. the current research points to immunology ang guess what vaccines are direct link to immune system.
