Vaccines do not cause Autism. Period. The evidence is unequivocal. It is not controversial. The science is clear. Every credible report that looks at this is clear. Vaccines do not cause autism. There is absolutely no doubt that they don’t.
I do not understand why such a vocal minority manufacture what they call a controversy. They just do not get it. Those that are advocating this are probably the greatest threat that exists to the health and well-being of those with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). They pollute forums and the blogosphere with their nonsense, but never can they present anything with credible evidence at a scientific conferences. Conspiracy theories and coincidences to not count as evidence! They use the full range of irrational thought processes and argumentative fallacies to try and convince the blind. As a result of these absolute nutters, so much money, resources and energy has to be spent to counter the absolute nonsense that is being spouted by these anti-vaccine nutters. All this wasted money, resources and energy could have been better used to make significant progress in doing something that actually helps kids with ASD and find the real cause.
These people and their ideas need to be removed from the ecosystem or ignored in the hope they will go away. They are the biggest threat to our kids. They just do not get the harm that they are creating for society.
