Immunization's aren't always bad. My doctor makes me take one so It lessens the chance of breast cancer.

Perhaps you missed the word "modern" in bsh1's post. Thimerosal is no longer used in pediatric vaccines. Also, for some reason, their exposed group already had enlarged brains thought to be caused by previous vaccinations. As they say, the results warrant further investigation (don't suppose you have any of that, do you?), but this "evidence" is specious.

That study administered the full vaccination schedule to the macaques. It's not necessarily true that thimerosal was the causal mechanism. It could be the adjuvants in the vaccines or their combination/negative interaction between vaccines causing adverse reactions.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...

Here's one of the only studies that has been done on the effect of the adjuvants. It provides compelling evidence that aluminum adjuvants cause autism. Unlike with thimerosal, where the epidemiological studies showed no correlation, this epidemiological study on the aluminum adjuvants in vaccines shows a strong correlation between adjuvants and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

As they say, the results warrant further investigation (don't suppose you have any of that, do you?), but this "evidence" is specious.

I can even explain the causal mechanism to you for adjuvants.

The belief that thimerosal caused autism was based on a misunderstanding about the difference between pure elemental mercury, which is highly toxic, and thimerosal, which is ethylmercury, a compound which the body can much more easily process. The typical anti-vax argument was: durr, look at these studies about elemental mercury - it causes brain damage. So all mercury causes brain damage. The flaw in this argument is obvious. Eating pure carbon (coal) is harmful; eating carbon in organic compounds (e.g. food) is not. Ethylmercury is pretty much an organic compound secreted through pee. There's no good scientific explanation for why thimerosal would cause autism. It's all based on a really poor knowledge of chemistry, specifically the difference between how an element acts in pure form vs. in organic compounds.

In contrast, there's a good scientific reason why adjuvants could cause autism. Adjuvants are added to vaccines because the immune response of the average person to *just* the viral proteins is insufficient to create enough antibodies to achieve immunity. Adjuvants are added to increase the immune response of the vaccine-recipient, i.e. to cause their immune response to go into hyperdrive, so that enough antibodies are synthesized.

Autism has been linked to auto-immune disorders that cause the immune system to attack parts of the brain [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...]. The adjuvants, in some patients, could cause the immune system to overreact and attack parts of the body. In mild cases, this merely causes swelling at the injection site. In some extreme cases, the immune system attacks and permanently alters the brain. Given the vastly different symptoms that appear in Autistic individuals, the immune system must attack different parts of the brain in different people, causing a wide variety of symptoms.

Boom, scienced.

Regardless, "modern" was an important qualifier that you seem to have ignored. If someone asked for a modern example of an atheist state committing atrocities, and someone responded with Stalinist Russia, would you consider it on point? And like I said, that was just one problem with that particular project. The already tainted subjects are a bigger problem.

It's about as useful/credible as that graph showing a rise in global temperature coinciding with a drop in high seas piracy over the last few hundred years.

Now you're the one making non-credible assertions. A cross-country comparison that correlates adjuvants with ASD is not as worthless as a random correlation chart given that it is a cross-country comparison using multiple countries. You wouldn't expect the correlation to hold true in every country if ASD were not caused at all by adjuvants.

Adjuvants are added to vaccines because the immune response of the average person to *just* the viral proteins is insufficient to create enough antibodies to achieve immunity. Adjuvants are added to increase the immune response of the vaccine-recipient, i.e. to cause their immune response to go into hyperdrive, so that enough antibodies are synthesized.

Autism has been linked to auto-immune disorders that cause the immune system to attack parts of the brain [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...]. The adjuvants, in some patients, could cause the immune system to overreact and attack parts of the body. In mild cases, this merely causes swelling at the injection site. In some extreme cases, the immune system attacks and permanently alters the brain. Given the vastly different symptoms that appear in Autistic individuals, the immune system must attack different parts of the brain in different people, causing a wide variety of symptoms.

Boom, scienced.

A plausible hypothesis is not a substitute for actual evidence. Sorry.

Thanks for calling my explanation plausible.

A study that proves correlation plus a plausible causal mechanism = causation, until proven otherwise. That's science.

*gasp* are you...an...anti-vaxxer?

I don't see anything wrong with it.

I'm a bit undecided. Autism versus immunization...hard choice.

There is no credible evidence linking modern vaccines to autism.

I think we both agree Michelle Bachman is a credible source, and she claims they do.

Yes! Thank you!

And Jenny McCarthy is an in-credible source as well. She even has her own website:

http://www.antivaccinebodycount.com...

Inconceivable!!!
Those damn pro-vaxxers have clearly hacked that website, since Michelle Bachman was personally told by someone their child had autism because of vaccinations. Damn their lies!!!

Or.....yes, it must be that the case Bachman brought up was pre-2007. Sneaky spin doctors with their stats. No wonder the counter started June 2007, such an odd time. Must have been right after that outbreak of autism.

DAMN THEIR LIES!!!!
My work here is, finally, done.

It is just lies. Every single case of autism is a confirmed case where autism is caused by vaccines. Those pro-vaxxers can't point to a single case of an unvaccinated child with autism.
