    A hack who has caused great harm to the babies born since his "study" came out.

    The fuitloop Jenny McCarthy shares her portion of the culpability as well.

    I found this part interesting:



    Scary stuff.

    Hey USMB Folks, did you get your children their vaccines, or didn't for fear of autism?

    Keeps them on their toes.

    Emotional, I can understand.

    Mounting a crusade and being purposefully blind to facts I cannot.

    Yes, many parents of those with children with autism will try and figure out "WHY"?

    There is not a clear cut reason why children have autism, nor is there a 'cure'

    Many people use a gluten free diet, or pills, or behavior therapy, et al for their children.

    And also, people want to put the 'blame' on something for why their child has autism, even though the medical community still has not found a cause for all types of autism.

    All you really need is an annual rabies and distemper shot. A lyme disease shot is good if you go outside a lot. Anything else is just wasted time and money. Oh yeah, be a dear and put those drops on the back of my neck every month too. Keeps the ticks and fleas off. Don't forget to toss me my monthly heartworm treatment either. After that, I'm good to go.
