Up to the usual standard of Winnipeg dummy's links. One anti-vaxx quack link and two that don't work.

The Age of Autism is a quack blog. Same with SafeMinds... and all they ever do is fight each other. I hope you're not getting your insight from them.

And again, please don't speak for all autistic children... science has never backed up your 90% figure... so please, do not speak for autistic kids.

I remember when "science" claimed that red food dye was the cause of ADHD. That was unfounded. Those same "scientists" then claimed that Autism was caused by red food dye. We all know how that turned out.

Wrong again. Vaccines are but a small part of any Pharmaceutical company, they don't make their money from vaccines. They make their money from daily medications.

The great AoA link you had was funny. It's calling the Genome Project a failure, when in fact when it came out and still occasionally you still site that as showing vaccines as a cause. You anti vaxxers should really get your stories straight. It's clear no one at AoA can comprehend a study, either.

And it is about a payday for Winnipeg, not about accountability and law enforcement. You didn't have to vaccinate your child, you do hold some responsibility for your medical choices and until you can explain how anyone, including you, your child's doctor and the pharma could had predicted specifically which children would have reactions, there is no accountability and law enforcement issue, not in the manner you perceive it to be. The main issue Winnipeg has is he cant stick to one theory of cause or could prove any theory of cause, so he didn't get a big payday. The end result, bitter angry anti vaxxers who attack others and think over the top nasty behavior in the end will result in them being correct.

They used to label disabled kids by very specific names and these foundations fought for limited funding. They later grouped all these disabilities into one group labeled autism in order to get all the funding under one umbrella and now you have what seems to be an explosion of autism which is in reality not an explosion at all

In the 1980's the number one risk factor for Autism was that your father was an engineer in Silicon Valley. What made the father so bright went wrong in the child. Now Hollywood celebs with limited intellects (Jenny McCarthy) are having autistic kids which leads me to believe Dr Spock's previous post.
WRONG. It was the ability to afford the new vaccine technology. When vaccines were given free (as a method of using the poor as free test subjects) the children of the poor became affected by autism and ADHD.

Seriouly, did anyone read the article??
"Gulick said changes the center made five years ago in autism diagnostic observation schedules have been key to diagnosing more children with the disorder.
"In the past, it relied on interviews with parents, teachers, third party reports. Now the (process) puts an evaluator in the room with a child, and engages that child in activities designed to observe them for ritualistic and rigid behaviors and routines," Gulick said. "It has improved our ability to diagnose based on direct observation. It provides a more accurate behavior profile."

Another example of autism rates increasing due to lack of good evaluators, not vaccines. Also, that autism rate comes from a 'survey of parents conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention', you know, that horrible CDC that anti vaxxers hate???
The article doesn't once mention vaccines or cause or the scare tactic of 'psychotherapy and mind drugs.'.
From a very interesting person,
'Itís always been about the vaccines. It always will be about the vaccines. Vaccines are the one fixed point in the antivaccine universe that always have caused autism, cause autism, and will cause autism, always and forever, amen.'
One should expect nothing more from anti vaxxers.

<quoted text> You apparently have no ability to reason. It has been proven that vaccines are not responsible for ADHD or autism but don't let the FACTS get in your way. As far as testing vaccines on the poor show us the proof. You are nothing more that an uneducated "Chicken Little" running around spreading misinformation.
I see where friend of PHARMA got the chicken little thing, from a childish poster having a tantrum. Talk about misinformation dufus, all you provide is a personal opinion gleamed from the perpetrators through the media owned and influenced by corporations who may own them.

WALLA a stool sample. Yeah it REALLY takes a battery of experts to see a child isn't normal. I guess you need a huge education to be able to evaluate, what garbage.

Maybe a vaccination caused your inability to write a coherent sentence or understand how grammar is used. You should start your own grammar/ vaccine charity. I bet you look like Stephen Hawking when you're typing your posts.

Interviews with parents, teachers, third party reports are not reliable sourses to make a medical diagnosis, hello. Yes, you do need a battery of experts to be able to determine just what that child has. Anyone who thinks otherwise or diagnosed as such is why the autism rates are so inaccurate.
