A great read. Some ideas that Wakefield proposed. And epigenetics. And how genes are likely put off kilter by vaccines.

It is a great read, for those who understand it. Wakefield proposed nothing about immunostimulant, polyinosinic:polycytidylic acid (poly(I:C)), which mimics a viral infection. Of course this study is about how to reverse the symptoms and it's also about prevention of contracting a viral infection.

Yet again the Winnipeg dummy didn't read it properly. There was no mention of vaccines causing epigenetic changes to gene expression. If vaccines did cause such changes that resulted in ASDs, then autism rates among vaccinated kids would be higher than among unvaccinated kids. All studies show that this is not the case.

The Winnipeg dummy has been debunked yet again.

He also missed the part about the 'genes', and had he read the study he'd have learned how maternal genes play a role in this study.

Just another example of wishful thinking misinfo by anti vaxxers, took no more than 2 minutes to debunk. Science like this is waaaay above that unemployed former doctors ability.

Moe rubbish. All studies? What studies? You mean the junk science you promote?

What is the Winnipeg dummy's evidence that all the studies linked to are "junk science"?

He doesn't have any evidence.

No personal opinions about it, other than Winnipeg's non sense. Everything else came from the study which of course the few few anti vaxxers that there is will deny the evidence.

That debunked took all 30 seconds to complete.

Same old garbage science. Nothing new here, just more misinfo directed at new parents who's child represents profit and a free test subject. Come be part of the collective like friend and ric99. Resistence is futile
