There are 4 comments on the NatureNews story from Nov 23, 2011, titled Rat models on the rise in autism research. In it, NatureNews reports that:

Put two young mice in a cage and they will politely sniff one another. Two rat pups, by contrast, quickly become a blur of fur as they begin some "really rough-and-tumble play", says Richard Paylor, a neuroscientist at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.

Why use real lab rats? They've simply used our children as lab rats for decades. They caused the autism epidemic and are now hoping to cash in on it's treatment. Autism is 1 in 91 in the USA and thats a number from 2007.

It dawns on me that perhaps you use only figures from 2007 because the amount of children with autism has decreased considerably since then, FBomber.

You give me and some of our peers cause to consider this because of your often unscrupulous and underhanded attempts to gain acceptance of your theory that vaccines cause autism.

You have proven to us that you will resort to almost anything in order to get your point across, including inundating these threads with your poisonous prose. Deny it if you can.

Sounds like your Krapy Judgement. Do some research Troll and find me numbers that say its back to 1 in 10,000 like in the 1980"s. Autism has been ignored for obvious reasons, its caused by vaccines.
