It's actually a fact that anti vaxxers cant accept, that more and more studies point away from vaccines being the cause. Anti vaxxers also ignore what such early detection would mean for those who do have autism.

Then explain it. This so called study describes possible CLASSIC cases of autism, the 3-9 %. It doesn't explain the 91-97% who regress and have no genetic inheritance. And what miracle comes with early detection? What treatment? How about prevention for the regressive cases instead?

The article never mentioned classic. And if you don't know what early detection would mean for someone who has autism, you'll need more than me to explain that to you.

I never made any claims, you did. Hello. The study never mentioned classic autism nor 3-9 percent.
You made the claim 91-97 percent have no genetic inheritance, of which you have no evidence of nor would anyone know that unless they were each tested.

According to the NATIONAL NSTTUTE OF HEATH,
"The occurance of autism is due to a significant genetic insult but is not considered to be an inheritable condition."

"The greater number of illness drugs, or vaccines the greater the alteration of the body's chemistry, therefore the greater its influence upon sense function and degree of sensory distortion."

Your link isn't a study, more a look at a bunch of references and taking a look at those says it all. They include Wakefield and Geier! Thanks for a Saturday Funny! Let us know when you actually have evidence.

The Winnipeg dummy’s link starts off with an unsubstantiated assumption:-

“There is a compelling argument that the occurrence of regressive autism is attributable to genetic and chromosomal abnormalities, arising from the overuse of vaccines”

So where is the scientific evidence for this “compelling argument” of “genetic and chromosomal abnormalities, arising from the overuse of vaccines”? There is none.

The link continues with:-

“Prior to the 1930's and the introduction of vaccinations autism was unknown.”

This is total rubbish. There were kids with multiple symptoms of autism long before Kanner introduced his accepted definition of the term in the 1930’s, so claiming that cases of autism didn't occur until “the introduction of vaccinations” in the 1930’s is totally inaccurate.

And who exactly is Graham E. Ewing, the sole author of the Winnipeg dummy’s link? He is CEO and director of Montague Healthcare, which promotes what Ewing refers to as “Virtual Scanning”, based on “Altered visual perception, of colour and of visual contrast, associated with disease states and the use of drugs. It is therefore associated with the function of the autonomic nervous system and the onset of pathologies.”

This looks like another of those alternative quackery techniques, for which there is no evidence of it working.

I think the National Institute of Health is a better source than a single mom and a 13 year old British child. Nuff said.

Ewing eats tea and crumpets so he must be 13 years old.

Only one of those links works, and of the one that does work, it never came from the National Institute of Health nor was any of the info from National Institute of Health. Must had missed the parts in that paper "for those genetically predisposed, or perhaps due to viral or bacterial infection." and "Vaccines are an essential component of preventative healthcare" but the best part of all is you know this paper is bogus since he sites Wakefield and Geier both who are frauds and had their licenses revoked. And one just has to love the claim about SID's and Japan. Japan never had a high rate of SID's before or after the whole cell pertussis vaccine, of which no one uses now anyway. There's a couple more interesting references as well but any fool who believes this single paper is just that, a fool. Not one of the references was ever conclusive. And there's only one who thinks so highly of it, they're spamming it all over! It was written in 2009, it didn't make head lines then and it certainly doesn't now.

It's not an opinion, hello. Or didn't you read the link you posted? If that link is your only evidence, you're never going to get any where, and of course that paper is not peer reviewed!
The only one in denial is anti vaxxers, who think Graham E. Ewing 2009 paper is worth anything. It's not, but rather funny anti vaxxers post it. I think they post such things just so we can all see how desperate they are.

Incidentally, Graham E. Ewing is a 'businessman' with no medical qualifications. Even more reason to dismiss his 2009 paper, which explains the rubbish he was writing.

Don't you just love what anti vaxxers come up with?? You can bank that this paper reflects his motivation for his alternative quackery business profits.
