Guess what? Vaccines STILL don't cause autism.

Yet another study debunks vaccination-autism link.

New findings from the CHildhood Autism Risks from Genetics and the Environment (CHARGE) study have found no difference in the blood levels of mercury among children ages 2-5 with autism spectrum disorders and children who were developing normally. [Hertz-Picciotto I and others. Blood mercury concentrations in CHARGE Study: Children with and without autism. Environmental Health Perspectives, Oct 19, 2009] The complete report is available as a .pdf at this link.

From the latest Consumer Health Digest. Please check out the full issue. There's some great stuff about pop psychology and Paul Offit in there. It never fails to floor me how the people with facts on their side stick to those while their logic-challenged opponents just launch personal attacks.

Despite being an atheist, I used to think it was OK for churches to get special treatment. I no longer believe that. Go, France!
