Brain dysfunctions: Shared mechanisms in fragile X syndrome, autism and schizophrenia

There are 13 comments on the EurekAlert! story from Sep 18, 2013, titled Brain dysfunctions: Shared mechanisms in fragile X syndrome, autism and schizophrenia. In it, EurekAlert! reports that:

Several psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, autism and intellectual disabilities share the same brain cell abnormalities: the contacts between brain cells are poorly developed and not functional.

Fragile X Syndrome is the leading cause of inherited intellectual disability.

The greatest risk for developing schizophrenia is having a first-degree relative with the disorder. Environmental factors associated with the development of schizophrenia include the living environment, drug use and prenatal stressors.

Down Syndrome and Fragile X Syndrome are only a few examples of brain conditions that are linked to poorly functioning synapses. And they are both genetic.

This whole is talking about genetics, not vaccines. Debunked, again.

On the other hand there are many many studies that prove vaccines cause autism. They can be found by ANYONE so I won't say where you can find them.

You wont say where those studies are or what they are because you're tired of being debunked. This study alone debunks you.

The only studies that "prove(???) vaccines cause autism" exist in the Winnipeg dummy's demented excuse for a mind.

Well of course, and we already know what those studies are. No mystery there! 72 studies are the claim, we've already seen them, and unlike anti vaxxers, we actually read more than the titles. They've been debunked. One of their studies they claim proves vaccines cause autism is "Autism Spectrum Disorders in Relation to Distribution of Hazardous Air Pollutants in the SF Bay Area".

It's all in anti vaxxers wishful thinking heads. If there ever was such a study, they'd be plastering it all over the web. This is just another example of an anti vaxxer guilty of "think blah blah and personal opinion is as good as science, its not".

Everyone here and every where else has already seen them so called studies. All your insults, name-calling and anti social behavior wont change the facts that you have no studies, not many or even a single one.

The Winnipeg dummy isn't fooling anyone. If real scientific studies proving that vaccines caused autism really existed, he would have been linking to them all over this forum. Why hasn't he done so? Because they don't exist

Bottom line, he lied in his very first post and he lied about there being many studies proving vaccines cause autism. It's a typical anti vaxxer tactic when they come across an article about a genetic based study and disorders.

Great! More links! A case study!
"MMR vaccination has been proved to be safe and to reduce significantly the number of reported infections due to these viruses."
"Twenty days later he presented" that child displayed symptom's of fever and a rash, 20 days after that, palsy of the inferior oblique muscle. But when the child was 5 years old, visual acuity and stereopsis tests were normal!

We'll skip Whale for obviois reasons.
The next link, you cant read all of pages without purchasing it (although you can find a free full PDF file of it) but the very first sentence is
"That vaccinations are helpful to society is without question".
The rest is based on the whole cell vaccine, and studies done in the 1940's. Without the ability to read the rest, and basing any thing off just the first page is useless. Reading the whole thing (which would be well over anti vaxxers heads) it's about the whole cell vaccine and thimerosal. HELLO!

Best of all, neither have anything to do with autism! The last one is the best, even though it has nothing to do with autism; since anti vaxxers claim the autism rates didn't start until a certain date in the 1990's, a 1940's studies on a single vaccine (pertussis) and this 17 page paper solely due to the old dates of the study is a clear example of opinion of the writer, not facts. Just got to also love the
'MA (Phil) MChS' behinf the writers name!
