Despite Setbacks, Autism-Vaccine Research Continues

The recent Supreme Court ruling shielding pharmaceutical companies from vaccine injury liability is a devastating blow for countless families who have fought many years attempting to link their children’s autism to vaccinations. While the decision was entirely predictable, it should be emphasized that much more research is still needed before vaccine manufacturers get a free [...]

Autism-Vaccine Debate Reaches Toxic Levels

In Sunday’s Doonesbury comic strip, even famed cartoonist Garry Trudeau decided to weigh in on the autism-vaccine debate, taking swipes at Jenny McCarthy in the process. McCarthy, who has become the de facto face of the anti-vaccination movement, has taken a beating in recent months, particularly when charges of fraud surfaced from a 1998 study [...]

Shocking Study Links Brain Erosion to Antipsychotics

This month, a shocking claim was made by the former chief of the American Journal of Psychiatry, Nancy Andreasen, when she published her findings that antipsychotic drugs, such as Risperadone, actually shrink the brain over time.

After investigative reporter Brian Deer found that Andrew Wakefield falsified a study linking autism to the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine, stories have inundated the newswires on a daily basis with headlines such as, "Autism/vaccine link: Another nail in the coffin," "New finding disproves link between vaccines and autism," and "Busting the autism/vaccine myth."

Another Day, Another Cause of Autism

Every so often, a new "study" will be conducted, with results claiming to establish a  new potential link to autism.  The latest installment of these never ending theories comes from a California study claiming that spacing babies too closely causes autism.  Although the findings are admitted to be preliminary by the researchers, this is just [...]
