Italian study: no connection between Autism and Thimerosal

I know there are many studies out there that seem to prove that vaccines or the mercury preservative "Thimerosal" does not cause Autism. But, I also know there is a literal ton of anecdotal evidence from real life moms and dads who noticed something change in their kids after a routine vaccine.

I am reserving judgment and my opinion for now. But, I would like to see more money and focus on treatment, support and therapies. Plus, if they really don't think it was the vaccines...WHAT THE HELL CAUSES IT THEN!!!!

1 out of every 150 babies is way too many.

From AP/The Seattle P-I:

A new study from Italy adds to a mountain of evidence that a mercury-based preservative once used in many vaccines doesn't hurt children, offering more reassurance to parents.

In the early 1990s, thousands of healthy Italian babies in a study of whooping cough vaccines got two different amounts of the preservative thimerosal from all their routine shots. Ten years later, 1,403 of those children took a battery of brain function tests. Researchers found small differences in only two of 24 measurements and those "might be attributable to chance," they wrote in the February issue of the journal Pediatrics, which was released Monday.
