Vaccines and Autism Link
This is the proverbial horse that has been beaten to death, given first aid to resuscitate and then shot again. A committee has then been formed to asses the horse's condition and consultants have justified receipts for Brazilian waxing based on reports regarding the horse in question.
All that being said there is yet a new development in the idiotic saga. This topic strikes close to home for me as I have little ones and prior to that i haven't given it any thought at all. I even entertained the idea because I frankly didn't care prior to my kids needing it. I did a bit of reading on the subject when the time came to vaccinate them and that's how I became familiar with this whole fiasco.
"(CNN) -- A now-retracted British study that linked autism to childhood vaccines is an "elaborate fraud," according to a medical journal -- a charge the physician behind the study vigorously denies."
This is the CNN coverage.
Penn and Teller say it best here.
This is mostly directed at the conspiracy theorists out there. I'm looking at you tinfoil hat wearing group.
