Oh they are really using this to get people to forget vaccines cause these conditions. These reports are not proof of anything at this stage, and with the medical/reseach/ science/Pharma world doing all it can to blame the victims, you won't hear evidence of how vaccines trigger these man made illnesses.

"uneducated "Chicken Little" running around spreading misinformation"

Schizophrenia pre dates vaccines by 200 years.

Another brain fart from the duhmeister. Search spontaneous Schizphrenia/autism, the two are linked in that depending on the vaccine injured area you can have one, the other or both. Or bi-polar or ADHD.....

so basically,they took a bunch of isolated people inbreeding within themselves. then found a genetic anormaly and compared to see if it exists in general population and they took this anomaly and connected it to autism. just please explain why kids regress shortly after vaccination into autism

Here's a description of encephalopathy that in every way describes autism.

Actually, no it very much does not describe autism. Encephalopathy does not refer to a single disease, but rather to a syndrome of global brain dysfunction.
Disorientation, reduplicative paramnesia, amnesia, delusions/ hallucinations, and inability to maintain a fixed posture are not clinical obervations present for autism.

The hallmark of encephalopathy is an altered mental state. Symptoms are loss of cognitive function, subtle personality changes, inability to concentrate, lethargy, and depressed consciousness, twitching of a muscle or group of muscles, abrupt loss of muscle tone, rapid, involuntary eye movement, tremora and seizsures, and respiratory abnormalities. And again, blood tests, spinal fluid examination by lumbar puncture, imaging studies, electroencephalograms are used to diagnose encephalopathy, they are not used to diagnose autism.

Encephalopathy is a known side effect of contracting many childhood illnesses, it is as rare from contracting the illness as it is from the vaccine. It's the virus that causes it, not the actual vaccine. So avoid the vaccine; if one contracts a childhood illness, the odds still are rare to get encephalopathy but the potential is still there regardless of a vaccine or not.

I'm not the one in denial, nor am I the one trying to make a single diagnosis with specific causes 'fit' into autism.

Many disorders mimic or resemble autism, and are often misdiagnosed. There's no deying the fact how they test for encephalopathy, nor can there be denial that contracting the virus itself has the same risk, although rare. That is why it's a also a risk of vaccines.
Any child can have those same tests done for encephalopathy, let is all know how your son's tests come back. If he has encephalopathy, then he was misdiagnosed with autism.
