Trash. Calling it the autism protein is bull. Its about fragile x ONLY and its 1 in 3,600-4,000 sufferers. Its also about mice, sorry mice aren't humans. It ignores the 1 in 50 autism sufferers who DON"T have fragile x. No credibility or relevance. Only a pro-vac would drool over this garbage.

The Winnipeg dummy says:-
"It ignores the 1 in 50 autism sufferers who DON"T have fragile x."
He needs to go back to kindergarten maths classes, because that would imply that 49 in 50 autism sufferers DO have fragile X.

As if he'd know of the autism rates who has co-morbids. It is the most common known single-gene cause of autism and the most common inherited cause of mental retardation.

NOT all who have autism have fragile x imbeciles. What a couple of off topic clowns.

I'm not talking about INHERITED autism dumbo, I'm talking about vaccine caused regressive autism. Have you paid any attention at all? More comprehension deficits? What's your label ADHD?

So where is the Winnipeg dummy's scientific evidence that vaccines cause regressive autism? There is none.
In fact research at University of California, Davis shows strong scientific evidence that boys who go on to be diagnosed with regressive autism had abnormal brain size from birth, i.e. before any vaccines were administered.

Of course this isn't about vaccines. So who cares what Winnipeg is talking about, he can never talk about the topic and he has no evidence of how many have autism and co-morbids or his claim about regressive autism caused by anything, let alone vaccines.

Oh dear, the Winnipeg dummy has lost his memory (definite sign of senile dementia). The link to the University of California, Davis study was posted here some time ago.

No that's you. So if you have something to prove then supply a link dumbo.

As the Winnipeg dummy's memory loss (due to senile dementia) is so severe, here is the link to the UC, Davis study yet again:-

http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/publish/news/new...

Note:-
"Boys with regressive autism, but not early onset autism, have larger brains than age-matched healthy counterparts, study finds"

"This is of particular interest, because many families believe that the trigger that led to their child's regression took place close to the time that the regression happened. But the data reported in this paper indicate that the process leading to the enlarged brain, which presumably also is associated with the onset of autism, started when the child was a newborn."

It doesn't say it started with newborns. It says there are two types of autism, early onset and regressive just like I and others have said. This research shows that but ric13 has comprehension issues like friend of PHARMA

So we now know that the Winnipeg dummy can't even read (senile dementia?).
Quote from the link:-
"But the data reported in this paper indicate that the process leading to the enlarged brain, which presumably also is associated with the onset of autism, started when the child was a newborn."
Are these words too difficult for the Winnipeg dummy to understand?
I agree that "ric13 has comprehension issues", because the only person who posts here as ric13 is the Winnipeg dummy.

Check the wording "indicate" "presumably" "associated" That does not mean proof is speculation and hypothesis only. When you grow up these words will make sense to you....maybe.

First the Winnipeg dummy states that the link did not say ‘started with newborns’, when it clearly did, so not wanting to get egg all over his face, he tries to divert attention on to the bit about brain enlargement presumably being associated with progressive autism, as being “speculation and hypothesis only”. In fact it is not just “speculation and hypothesis”, as the study showed a strong correlation between boys with enlarged brains from birth and later diagnosis of regressive autism in the same boys. No such strong correlation was found between boys with enlarged brains from birth and boys who developed normally, or boys later diagnosed with early onset autism.
If the Winnipeg dummy did not suffer from a severe case of senile dementia, these simple words would have made sense to him….maybe.
