Thank you for reading! That is a pleasant surprise! I need to get back at it... many discoveries and things to write about. Regarding kids on the spectrum, I have known a few, but I can't comment directly on the role that vaccines played in their lives. My suspicion based on discussions with their parents is that vaccines could have played a role. I want to emphasize that is only a suspicion and I do not have the credentials to diagnose anything. If you have a more specific concern or question, feel free to ask.

I was dumbfounded. Ryan was recruited to make a cake for an American Heart Association fundraiser at his place of employment, which is involved in health care. Really? A sugar-laden, fake food, death bomb cake to raise money for heart... Continue reading
