The Winnipeg dummy is too dim to realise that if vaccines resulted in epigenetic changes to gene expression, causing autism, then autism rates among vaccinated kids would be significantly higher than among unvaccinated kids. All studies of autism rates show that the autism rates are the same, regardless of whether kids are vaccinated or not.

The Winnipeg dummy has been debunked yet again.

It's obvious in the mind of Winnipeg he cant handle genetics being the cause, for it then 'blames' him. It's not about blame. It's about cause. Hello.
It's also clear he has no clue even though he's been debunked how many times about epigenetics.The environmentals scientists are talking about are every day exposures, not vaccines, and it doesn't happen just at any time. If Winnipegs theory was valid, that would mean every parent who had vaccines would have a child with autism. It doesn't take much to debunk that theory.
Another DUH MOMENT

Where's you proof it would be ? You have none. And quit using junk science as proof.

what a goof. You know genetic research has not proven that genes are the cause at all. Over 80% are not inherited, so they are caused. And how could it happen world wide unless it was caused by something that is used world wide with infants? So instead of posting mindless blah blah, tell us what substance used world wide is causing the autism epidemic? And do it without a bunch of DUH and stool samples.

Sorry Ross Coe, you've been debunked time and time again. You're claim of junk science and proof it is worthless.

The Winnipeg dummy's definition of "junk science" is any study that shows results and conclusions that he doesn't want to believe concerning vaccines and autism. That just happens to be ALL real scientific studies. When asked to give scientific reasons why they are "junk", he doesn't have any, so he resorts to insults. Does he seriously believe that any intelligent person is going to believe what he says?

The only ones who fall for it are the very few who rely on things like McCarthy's and Cavallari's looks than her knowledge when they make choices fo their own families. And the two dimwits off course site no science either to back up their choices.

That's where the true sheep are, believing in those who have no science at all to back up what they say, and inject into science their utter denial of it.

Intelligent people would, that's why you and friend can't...too dumb.

Whereas we who do realize that it is a genetic thing can pull up science facts to back up what we say.

One also has to remember that research still goes on even after they find what they are looking for. In order to find common grounds with other items.

http://directorsblog.nih.gov/2013/12/03/netwo... Affecting an estimated 1 in 88 U.S. children, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complicated and diverse group of developmental brain disorders that interfere with language, normal communication, and social interaction. Unlike some other conditions that are caused by mutations in a single gene, as many as 1,000 genes, as well as various environmental factors, are suspected to contribute to the risk of developing ASD
.
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/03/... Previous research suggests that as many as 1,000 genes may contribute to autism phenotypes, but as much as 1-3 percent of all autism spectrum disorder cases may be a result of 15q11-q13 duplication alone.

...Ten years ago, little was known about the role genetics plays in autism. But improved technology has allowed scientists to delve deeply into DNA to search for answers.

Again, the canadian troll offers NO solid proof. All he or she can say is 'junk science'. Without any proof.
.
Like that last post I did. I had even one site from the govt listed in the post. The troll could not even give a proper rebuttal on it.
.
It has gotten to the point I take one look at the posts of the troll and do a shaking facepalm.

A proper rebuttal from Winnipeg Ross Coe?? He's never had a proper reply, let alone any proper rebuttal but then one cant expect much when they still believe in the fairy tale Wakefield. He still thinks he can wave the magic 'trash science' that'll transform rational thinking people into Wakefield Clingons.
I feel rather sorry for the poor guy. Maybe we're just not as sympathic as we should be with Ross Coe. Maybe we all need to offer to be his support and help him kick the clingon Wakefield debunked claims habit??

There there now. It'll be ok. We're not talking about Star Trek, hello. To have a strong emotional attachment or dependence. I think that's actually considered a disorder of some kind. We now can all have a better understanding of you so we can better help you.

By the troll claiming it is some fictional race as in being responsible. That tells folks that the person has a very good chance of having schizophrenia.
.
Maybe the canadian govt should step in and take the troll to what ever mental health facilities they have in the area. In order to treat what is going on with the troll.

Oh look Sangelia can post plopaganda and claim to be right. That's what friend and dichead99 do because its easy, lazy and requires little thinking. Its like not picking up you dog's poo because that's too hard for them too.
