Not interesting. Predictable manipulation of the public opinion, based on a group with vested interest in coming to this conclusion.

Was interesting to me, any one else? Vaccine cleared again as autism culprit isn't what some people want to hear, I guess.

Some prefer the truth, not coverup. Go test vaccines friend since they are harmless.

Why don't you test them and prove how harmless they are.

It was your suggestion, not mine. So if you consider a 'duh' moment, that says much about yourself than it ever will me.

Cliff's Notes: the study, which itself admits is not scientific, didn't use the standard DSM diagnosis criteria for autism. They used their own, far wider criteria. As Orac put it, this is the equivalent of declaring anyone who has diarrhea as being afflicted with IBS.

Do your research, find out how this crap affects your children and who profits. Look at the vaccine, the metals and other deadly ingredients, then tell me it is not dangerous P.S. DO NOT LOOK AT AMERICAN RESEARCH, THEY WORK FOR BIG PHARMA, FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL STUPID........

ORAC is a Pharma paid stooge. Figures you'd side with him.
I see you cannot defend the study's use of a non-standard, overly broad criteria for "autism-like symptoms".

Thanks for not trying.

I don't know what you are refering too dumbo, but if you want to read something worthwhile, skip ORAC'S fudge and read the comments below. Those who criticize vaccines are an intelligent and vital part of society. People like you with heads imbedded in your arse don't realize how we make life better for lunkheads like you.

You don't know what I'm referring to because you don't READ.

I specifically told you why that "83 kids with autism symptoms" study was crap. You aren't able to defend the study, so you just throw out nonsense about big pharma.

Excuse me DUHMEISTER, I'm not a mind reader. The "study" is merely a report that 83 vaccine injured children were compensated by the Vaccine Compensation Program. How is it crap when it is fact? Stop reading ORAC, he'll turn whats left of your brain to buttfudge

The "study" attempts to portray those 83 children as having autism by using an extremely broad and non-standard definition. This is an dishonest attempt to tie vaccines to autism.

These kids were compenated by the vaccine injury compensation plan because those who run the plan deemed it so. They had autistic traits if not the diagnosis. The point being the powers that be ie: the provac health agencies and their associates at Pharma, deny any connection, but then we have this confusing compensation of these victims who fit the autism/caused by vaccine definition.
The report wasn't about kids compensated FOR autism or "symptoms associated with autism". It was made to determine if kids with any vaccine injury were more likely than the general population to have autism. They used a BS non-standard diagnosis criteria to bump up the numbers.

Orac the Pharma paid stooge says a lot of things. He twists the truth until its unrecognizable. More and more I see that you are gullible enough to believe ORAC'S BEE ESS.
What did he twist?

The report authors say THEMSELVES that they chose not to use the DSM diagnostic criteria for autism. Instead, they chose to count anyone with "autism-like symptoms".

Again, this is like counting anyone who has had diarrhea as having IBS.

You cannot compare the rates of people with official ASD diagnoses with rates of people with an unofficial, broader diagnosis and remark that the latter is bigger. It's meaningless.
