Court rules vaccine not to blame for autism

Judges in the cases found the claims to be "speculative and unpersuasive"".

The ruling, which was anxiously awaited by health authorities, was a blow to families who have filed more than 5,000 claims with the U.S. Court of Claims alleging that vaccines caused autism and other neurological problems in their children. via msnbc.com

Although the court found that the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine was not to blame, it has yet to rule on "separate claims from other families who contend that rather than a single vaccine, the culprit could be a mercury-containing preservative called thimerosal that once was common in children's inoculations."

I'm not sure I really agree totally with this. As it has been known that over vaccinating can cause some majour health issue down the road. Same with our animals.

What is to say that vaccination doesn't help aggrevate an underlining issue or disorder! If a childs immune system was already out of balance then getting vaccinated isn't a good thing.

How long is this virus put into ones system last and the dosage maybe way off the scales as it were. Sure back when we didn't know much about vaccination and drugs however now we do. Although dr. got the big pharmicutical companies to deal with. And to me it's all about the money more so then our health.
