Vaccine Link Debunked

The 1998 study that claimed vaccines cause autism has been retracted. Turns out, the doctor behind it had big time conflict of interest. His work was funded by lawyers suing the vaccine makers, and his own vaccine product stood to benefit by eliminating its competition. If that isn’t bad enough, he took blood samples from children at his son’s birthday party?!? Yikes. Parenting FAIL.

I never bought the vaccine link. If you did, I hope this changes your mind. Autism is a natural difference. We need less blaming, more understanding.
