It's not just a coincidence the age group of 10 to 14 just happens to coincide with the 1998 Wakefield paper, which just coincidently was 14 years ago. Although the media did play a role, Wakefield spent no effort to correct them. I hope Wakefield is enjoying the limelight now.

The 'ageofautism' website is a known conspiracy theory site, full of unsubstantiated quackery. They say that Wakefield has been proved to be correct about MMR vaccine causing autism, but they have yet to produce a real scientific study to back up that claim. The study they refer to concerns the type of gastroenteritis found in some kids with regressive autism being associated with a particular form of gene expression. There is no mention of MMR or any other vaccine being a cause. In fact it has been established for some time now that there is a strong genetic component in autistic spectrum disorders.
Conclusion: This study does NOT prove that Wakefield was right about MMR causing autism.

I can barely understand what you are trying to say but I am originally from England, where I was born. I do not descend from "convict" stock although there should be no shame for anybody that does.

English laws were rather draconian back in the convict era and many were convicted for small crimes like stealing a loaf of bread for their starving families to eat. I choose to honor the convicts and their memory.

They built Australia up to be the brilliant nation that it is today. God bless the convicts and their descendants.

Just because the Winnipeg dummy posts under lots of different names, and pretends to be people he isn't, he assumes that it is normal behaviour and that everyone else does the same. Well, NORMAL people like friend and I don't behave that way. We post under our own names, so if the name of the poster isn't 'friend' or 'ric99', then it is neither of us.
Not only do NORMAL people not post under lots of different names, but they also don't automatically believe in conspiracy theories (such as Pharma making vaccines that cause autism), without a shred of real evidence to back it up. Some of us live in the REAL world, unlike Winnipeg dummy.

The thing is, some just aren't here for the reason of autism and the issues surrounding it. Some are only here to attack others and make unfounded claims about them. Some of us take the issue seriously, others just don't and as a result really undermine autism and be disrespectful to those who are serious.

I'd just ignore his comments, the attacks disappear from the forum anyway.

As the only person who has posted here under the name of ric13 is the Winnipeg dummy, it is indeed too bad that he (Winnipeg dummy, alias ric13) can't see the error of his ways.

All the personal attacks, name changes and attacks on others ID's still don't and never will change the fact: The measles outbreak is in direct relation to Wakefield.

Age of Autism claims Wakefield has been proven correct based on court cases. This is untrue. No court case and proven Wakefield was correct and the reason why the media doesn't pick up on this is because it's a waste of time. Court cases is not science and the burden of proof is the civil-law preponderance-of-the-evidence standard, meaning that causation was more likely than not. I could go through each court case however who cares. No one pays attention to Age of Autism other than anti vaxxers. Cases have won for specific medical reason, none being autism and just as many or even more have lost.
