Answer this boy, why did the CDC do this information gathering? Nothing to do that day? It must have had a purpose and why report it? Again, no purpose? Hardly. So lets hear it.

It seems that the Winnipeg dummy doesn't know what the word 'comprehension' means. In this case, it means actually reading the CDC report and understanding what it is saying, i.e. that the 1 in 50 autism rate was arrived at from parent accounts of their kids condition, NOT from clinical records.

Anti vaxxer abuse and misuse studies, and a great example of it. The best thing about the newest CDC rates is it was based on parental reports, and more than half of those parents stated their child/ children had mild autism, not regressive or severe autism. Mild. The study itself more or less confirmed the majority that makes up the autism rates are diagnosed with PDD-NOS.

You haven't explained WHY CDC did this researched and reported it. CDC seems to think it has merit and validity. So what they talked to parents. Some parents are highly knowledgeable and were eyewittnesses to the vaccine caused regressive autism their children experienced. Who better to ask. They also are the only ones who care about their vaccine destroyed child and have taken them to the worthless pediatricians who are vaccine henchmen who spread the lies about safety. Parents are the best all around source and that's why CDC contacted them. They are the ones who are most affected. But I guess some posters are too looney to get that and instead repeat the same worthless blah blah everytime they post. No wonder they don't acknowledge vaccine injury, they can't comprehend the simplest thing.

Guess anti vaxxers should read the study. Reading it would surely preveny looking foolish.
"Evidence from epidemiologic, genetic, and neuroscience research points to the prenatal period as the key exposure window for ASD risk factors."
"14% of children aged 14–17 were first diagnosed in or after 2008 at age 7 or over, well beyond the age when ASD signs and symptoms should be clearly notable."
"Increases in the prevalence of parent-reported ASD continued through 2011–2012, and much of the recent increase—especially for children aged 6–13—was the result of diagnoses of children with previously unrecognized ASD."
"More than one-half of these children were classified by their parents as having ‘‘mild’’ ASD, and very few were classified as having ‘‘severe’’ ASD."
"Together, these findings suggest that the increase in prevalence of parent-reported ASD may have resulted from improved ascertainment of ASD by doctors and other health care professionals in recent years, especially when the symptoms are mild. Changes in the ascertainment of ASD could occur because of changes in ASD awareness among parents or health care professionals, increased access to diagnostic services, changes in how screening tests or diagnostic criteria are used, or increased special education placements in the community."

Nope, no mention of vaccines. Sorry, according to those parental reports, it doesn't at all point to vaccines, even though the study itself isn't about vaccines to begin with.

Who can't read that blah blah? It means nothing, its babble. I can see why you quote it though it twists bits of junk science into a conclusion they want.

Go ahead and read the study for yourself, you'll see that's exactly what it states, no matter if it's copied or not.

There are two possible reasons why the Winnipeg dummy says things like "it means nothing", "its babble", "it twists bits of junk science", about the CDC report.

Either:-
1. He doesn't have the intellectual capacity to comprehend it.

Or:-
2. He doesn't want to comprehend it.

Reason number 2 looks most likely to me.

It's clear the only one manipulating the study to serve a conspiracy thepry isn't me. Put those statements any where within a study, it still means the same thing: Not related to vaccines, at all and there's only one person assuming it has anything to do with vaccines and putting words into a parental parent study.

parental parent study? Snicker. So it isn't stated. Why would the CDC admit that when they are committed to coverup? Its about numbers and government inaction.

Oh yes it is stated and the best part of the study is it consisted of 95,677 interviews completed and of that, more than one-half of these children were classified by their parents as having ‘mild’ ASD, and very few were classified as having ‘severe’ ASD.

Also, anti vaxxers bash the CDC, but find the CDC useful when using their autism rates! I guess a conflict of interest is common with anti vaxxers.

It's about numbers and Government inaction? Are you kidding? We call that anti vaxxer conspiracy paranoia overload. It's about how anti vaxxers have no evidence, at all, and are easily debunked, as seen here again.

I still say that the Winnipeg dummy's reason for saying what he does about the CDC report is that 'he doesn't want to comprehend it'.

The reason that he gives, i.e. that "it IS babble and junk science", is pure nonsense, because he cannot give any scientific reasoning for saying that.

He just cant decide which conspiracy theory to go with. He contradicts himself with the CDC, too. Either they're covering up or they're not. If the CDC covering up, they'd also cover up the autism rates. Hello.

Fact is, he cant back up that cover up claim, and he either didn't read the study and/ or he's clearly making a failed attempt at convincing others of it's contents.

"blah from the UK" is the Winnipeg dummy's way of trying to draw attention away from the fact that he has no scientific evidence to back up the claim that vaccines cause autism.

The more he persists with such immature tactics, the more he is regarded as a dimwitted conspiracy theorist.

The Winnipeg dummy has posted here thousands of time, but not once has he produced any scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism, or that the numerous real studies on the subject are all junk science. Does he seriously expect any sensible person to believe his unsubstantiated claims?

Nobody is fooled by the Winnipeg dummy's laughable attempts to distort quotes of my posts. In fact it only goes to prove to everyone that he has no scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism, so he resorts to distortions instead. I wonder what he posted in #75, which has been deleted by topix, surprise, surprise. The more he posts, the more he discredits himself.
