Doctors don't give a rat's butt whats happening to these kids. Looking to them for help or leadership is a joke.

Having a link between the two conditions would probably shed more light on the ongoing research for its treatment. Though there is still no definitive cure for both, it would still be a huge improvement on the current studies being conducted today.

Now you are condemning doctors in a blanket statement, FBomber? You have gone over the edge.
I'll bet that you totally blame your pediatrician or internist for your son's autistic condition. You are headed down the wrong road, believe me.

Too bad you can't live up to your name "Better Judgement". The medical profession has much to be ashamed about, and they con, lie and coverup because of $$$$. It is supposed to be a profession whose creed is "first do no harm". Tell that to the 55,000 vioxx dead and the untold injured. Defending these Pharma cronies is despicable. They are a form of criminal that seems to be untouchable by the law of the land.

I don't think that condemning the medical profession in general is productive, FBomber. By that, you put doubts in the minds of parents, who will then hesitate when receiving advice from their doctors and pediatricians.

If that includes vaccine shots, then so be it. As lay people, we can't second-guess the medical profession. The anti-vaccine scare that caused an epidemic of measles in Europe was a terrible result for parents who were steered away from injections.

I'm afraid that your inflated ego is such that you would like to be the one who stops Americans from seeking vaccines, even if it means an epidemic of some disease. That's a sick goal to harbor.

When you assume or predict what another person thinks or is attempting to do, you tend to be %100 wrong. And so you are.
