The CDC claimed it was too hard to do this basic study. And, now it has been done. This is not conclusive, even though it followed standard protocols for data gathering (protocols established by the CDC), but it now firmly puts the ball in back in the CDC's court. They need to prove this study is wrong.
Here are two pointed paragraphs from the study. Digest this and tell me if you would now vaccinate your children without more data.
All vaccinated boys, removing one county with unusual results (Multnomah, OR), compared to unvaccinated boys:
- Vaccinated boys were 185% more likely to have a neurological disorder (RR 2.85)
- Vaccinated boys were 279% more likely to have ADHD (RR 3.79)
- Vaccinated boys were 146% more likely to have autism (RR 2.46)
All vaccinated boys and girls, compared to unvaccinated boys and girls:
- Vaccinated boys and girls were 120% more likely to have asthma (RR 2.20)
I think we are all a bit tired of the mantra "trust us, we know better than you." I say SHOW US THE DATA.
The Good News is Rep Maloney will resubmit her bill.

NOTE: JB Handley responds at end of diary:
Dear JB Handley,
Thank You for you posts and for doing the telephone survey study.
I am glad to argue for science. I believe your study, although challengable, was the most important study ever made on autism and vaccines.
Your study is the only study in the whole world comparing vaccinated to completely unvaccinated kids. For that, the whole world owes you a thanks.
It is important to note that it may be something other than mercury. If vaccinated kids have a higher rate of autism, we have to figure out why.
When the definitive study comparing vaccinated to unvaccinated kids is done, I believe it will be essential to consider all points of view. In that frame of mind, I am thankful, too, for DailyKos providing a medium to discover some elements of the debate.
I hope we have a definitive study completed within 1 year.
