    The vaccine-autism argument suffers another failure

     

    http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2009/02/the_vaccine-autism_argument_su.php

    Won't stop mirto & friends claiming vaccines are harmful, though......

    >>
    A special court has reached a decision: vaccines don't cause autism. On one side were families with sad and tragic anecdotes of children with serious developmental disabilities, and on the other…

    The government argued during the 2007 bench trials that the plaintiffs' claims linking the vaccines with autism are not supported by "good science."

    Likewise, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and the Institute of Medicine have found no credible link between vaccinations and autism.

    It does not diminish the pain the families have gone through, but it's not enough to announce that you suffer, and therefore you get to lash out at a target. The causal relationship has not been discovered to the satisfaction of either science or the law.
