Hi Jenny, Thank you for your thoughtful response. I am afraid that it is here that we are unable to agree, but I do better understand your position now, and for that, again, thank you.
Hi John, I was going to say that it was really cool that you allowed my comment through despite our difference of opinion, but I'm pretty sure you were just having a jab at my user name, right? Without actually engaging with what I said? That's a shame. Look - I can understand how you might think that "encephalopathy" is just Them (Big Pharma?) using a scapegoat or 'convenient' diagnosis in place of autism, but that's literally why differential diagnosis exists. Instead - and I doubt we'll ever find common ground on this issue - what happened, and what the findings suggest, is that brain damage occurred that has the same symptoms as autism. As a completely random example, if someone has Mononucleosis and goes to the doctor, the doctor would also note that the symptoms they present with are very similar to the Flu. And I think that's the big takeaway and where we part ways on explanation. I tend to accept the medical institution and doctors and scientists when they say that the MMR caused autism-like symptoms that wasn't actually autism - whilst you hold the position that it is. If this gets approved, kudos to you! But in response feel free to engage with what I said. Cheers!
John, you said: "Well, Julia, perhaps you ought to take note that it was not Andrew Wakefield that said vaccines cause autism, it was the US government. Following the Hannah Poling award in 2008 Julie Gerberding, at the time Director for the centers for Disease Control, told Sanjay Gupta on CNN" But the actual transcript (from your own link!) has the following: "GERBERDING: What we can say absolutely for sure is that we don't really understand the causes of autism. We've got a long way to go before we get to the bottom of this. But there have been at least 15 very good scientific studies on the Institute of Medicine who have searched this out. And they have concluded that there really is no association between vaccines and autism." Also, from your own link in regards to Sharyl Atkisson, it states the following : "But when autism or autistic symptoms are alleged as the primary brain damage, the cases are lost." And, "University of Pennsylvania's Dr. Brian Strom, who has served on Institute of Medicine panels advising the government on vaccine safety. He says the prevailing medical opinion is that vaccines are scientifically linked to encephalopathy, but not scientifically linked to autism." Remember, these are from your own links. And now we have even more scientific papers coming out concluding no link between MMR and autism - - and from that link Dr. Sanjay Gupta says: "We don't know what causes autism - that's fair to say - we're not sure, in the scientific community, what causes autism. But we know that vaccines do not."
