Ahhhhh, all anti vaxxers including you rely on Wakefield's study. The only thing Wakefield ever did was that one study so if his 12 didn't mean anything, why support the quack??

No one ever said anything about solid evidence. Findings within studies point to direction of where to look; genome sequencing is fairly new and they have found 50 percent inherited in four previously unrecognized genes.
You have no evidence pointing in any direction coming close to vaccines.

Bottom line is YOU have no evidence of your claims and at the same time, studies like these are released that point away from vaccines. a day will come that if you don't have your child genetically tested, you'll be doing him a disservice and of all the quack interventions you admitted to trying, the results of such studies and medications could improve his life greatly. That's the difference between an anti vaxxer and a regular person. We're not so stuck on one item and we don't close every door that doesn't support unfounded-unproven theories.

No one here is pushing vaccines, they're pushing for anti vaxxers evidence of their claims.

the main 'evidence' the anti vaxxers have is a report when studied closely, was discredited due to all the errors in it.

The only DUH MOMENTS belong to the Winnipeg dummy, who has them because he has no evidence to present.

And where is the Winnipeg dummy's evidence? It seems to be permanently in hiding.
