Thank goodness these kids avoided autism by not getting vaccinated, though, am I right?

The anti-vax people should be quarantined, in case stupid is contagious.

The number of autism cases linked back to vaccinations remains at zero. Should anyone prove anything more definitive than "both vaccinations and autism exploded in the 20th century" - then medicine will pursue the (absurd) line of reasoning. Until then, vaccinate yourself and your kids, folks...

Because, you know, SCIENCE....

I don't blame my son's autism on vaccines, I blame it on my genes. Heck, I exhibited a lot of his tendencies as a child growing up and eventually learned to cope by middle and high school.

Yeah, even if they don't have definitive evidence that there's a genetic link, I see way too much of myself in my kid for it to be coincidence. It's just that anything short of Rainman wasn't on anyone's radar when I was a kid.

I'm not clicking sws's link because I knew what it was even before hovering over it to see the linked website's name.

I fell for it.
But the good news I got to hear Together Forever, too.

It seems like the major anti-science movement is pretty much relegated to the US and those territories held by Islamic militants. The extremists have more in common with each other than they do with the rest of the planet...
