    Hopefully they take his license, fine him, and put him in jail for spreading propaganda which has endangered the lives of children and fueled baseless rants from clueless nutcases.

    Okay fine, you can refute that guy... but what about Jenny McCarthy, who both diagnosed the cause and found the cure for autism?

    I am much more concerned about endocrine disrupting chemicals passed in vitro, etc than I am the whole vaccination scare when looking at the origins of spectrum disorders.

    Phht, I gots all my vaccines as a kid and look at me, I'm fine....:D

    Seriously, I seem to notice in my unscientific mind that a lot of people say their kids are autistic these days. Just a few years ago, it was ADD, the ADHD. Pretty much some of the kids I've seen that their parents say they are mildly autistic or Asberger's (sp) have kids that need a good smack upside the head or some attention paid to them.

    Was just unFriended by someone after pointing out (in response to her "this is why I'm not vaccinating my kids"! post) that I'm currently watching my father-in-law slowly die from complications due to polio (he had it when he was a kid, and the lack of mobility and movement caused (aspirational?) pneumonia last December... He's still in the hospital, and goes back and forth between the normal hospital and the icu) and that vaccines are actually a *good* thing.

    Needless to say, she, uh, didn't take my critique of her parenting skills so well. I never think that people can actually be this dumb, and then I'll find out I'm actually friends with someone like that.

    Yeah I think that's called "being a parent"..........shockingly a skill that seems to be in short supply in my parts at least.

    I find myself learning more than I bargained for on FB in regards to friends and/or acquaintances.

    One thing I have learned is that many of my peers, in midlife, are discovering faith and posting about it. Spreading the gospel as it were.

    Nobody has faith like the recently converted. Try to avoid those people as much as possible.

    I provided a list of low-mercury fish which refutes that point in the video, so what are you talking about?
