Special Court Rules Autism Not Caused by Vaccine

I’ve posted a few times on this case, as is near and dear to my heart, as my Hunter falls “in the spectrum”; a nice way of saying “he has autism”. Back in May 2005, I posted “Mercury and Autism”, as to then-current findings.

Well, the latest is an MSNBC article that says the vaccines are not to blame: “Court says vaccine not to blame for autism”.

Three cases were reviewed and were deemed “speculative and unpersuasive”. The court the court concluded that "the weight of scientific research and authority" was "simply more persuasive on nearly every point in contention."

As I mentioned in my posts, I’ have had the same concern about the affects of the MMR .. the timing of his behaviors and the short were just suspect. At question was the existence of a mercury-based preservative called thimerosal, since removed in children’s vaccines.

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
