Of course this study wouldn't affect or pertain to those who don't smoke, so bringing up those who don't smoke means little. It's a study that found an association between smoking and autism. It's not junk. Smoking while pregnant can cause many health issues for the unborn child, autism could easily be one.

Love your new name. It fits you well and proof your name fits well is that the study isn't about non smokers. It's about smokers who smoked while pregnant.

Why not? You take one factor and view it in a vaccuum. Look, and you just did it again.

You ask the Special Masters, and while you're at it ask where those 5000 test cases went. As of today, there is no study concretely confirming vaccines cause autism so yes, you take one factor and view it in a vaccuum without any scientific proof at all.

Typical, have no answer, so instead attack and name-call. Is that the same thing as you have no clue where those 5000 test cases went?? Thought so. Thanks for letting everyone know you're trying to convince people with nothing at all but gross misinfo.

Back to topic, regardless if smoking while pregnant is or isn't a strong association to autism, it poses many health issues for the unborn child. So to be on the over-all safe side, just don't smoke while pregnant.

You're the one who said "Vaccines cause the conditions that cause autism. Ask the special masters."
YOU brought it up, and vaccines that again have nothing to do with this study with the purpose to distract from the study. Since you're a know it all anti vaxxer, you tell us what you meant by your comment, and what happened to the test cases.

Or better yet, stay on topic.

Your new name of Cop Out fits you well. I didn't bring up the tests cases as evidence of anything. Nice try. YOU brought up the special masters as proof that vaccines cause autism. "Vaccines cause the conditions that cause autism. Ask the special masters." As if they'd ever talk to you. I proved your misinfo wrong yet again, it isn't my fault you're the only one who doesn't know where those test cases went.

It's called staying on topic and not acknkowledging yet another attempt to hijack and distrupt a topic which has nothing to do about vaccines, for your personal anti vaxxer- vaccine motivations and agenda.

If there's a topic about vaccines, it'd be a different story. This isn't that topic.

It's a study about smoking while pregnant. Any thing about vaccines is nothing but invalid. Vaccines aren't even given to children until they're born.

Did they vaccinate these kids, or are they unvaccinated?
