'Science is Still out' on Autism, Vaccine Link, New Health Official Says

Milwaukee's newly picked top health official told a radio audience that "the science is still out" on whether there's a link between some vaccines and autism.

 
Patricia McManus, who was chosen by the Common Council this week to lead the troubled Milwaukee Health Department, was asked during a radio show Wednesday about whether the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine could cause autism in children.
 
“I don’t think the answer is yet there. I mean, there’s still people who believe it," McManus said on The Forum talk show. "And so I don’t know. I think the science is still out. I think that’s a decision that these families are going to have to make on their own at this point.
 
"I wasn't questioning the science," she said. "I think clearly most public health people, and most doctors in general, believe that even if you have issues with it, the best thing to do is to still get the immunization."
McManus added that she "is not going anywhere telling people not to get immunized."
 
McManus, a registered nurse with a doctorate in urban studies, said she has learned from decades as a health professional that "you give people information, but you don't just drill it in, and just tell them that you're wrong, and this is what you have to do."

If the "Science is still Out," as to whether vaccines can cause Autism, then the " Children are still Out; Out of Luck" as they succumb to Autism from Vaccines. Science Without Conscience

I only hope this doesn't end up being a case of "one step forward, two steps back"!....

"I wasn't questioning the science," she said. "I think clearly most public health people, and most doctors in general, believe that even if you have issues with it, the best thing to do is to still get the immunization."

I find it pretty hypocritical, that she's willing to doubt parental accounts of vaccine injured children, based on a lack of supporting 'science'

Yet she willing to accept a consensus among her peers, as reason enough for parents to just keep on injecting...rather than question the 'other' science, that doesn't exist either.

"Science is still out" is a long way from "the science is settled", and not nailing it to one thing - vaccines - is an awful long way from not nailing it to them at all! This is the beginning of the controlled demolition.

Patricia McManus, who was chosen by the Common Council this week to lead the troubled Milwaukee Health Department, said: "I would like to have more research done on the whole issue in the first place, rather than just tying it to one thing, because I'm not sure that's it," she said. "It usually isn't. And I think that's what happens when you try to nail it directly to one thing, such as the vaccine."

Would love to ask McManus if she believes .. and .. would use her official appointment as leader of the Milwaukee Health department to recommend a scientific .. independent study .. of "vaccinated v. unvaccinated" populations .. to determine, once and for all, if there is a "link" between vaccines and autism? Surely McManus' call for "more research done on the whole issue" would include such a study. NO?

Maureen S. Durkin, a professor of public health and chairman of the department of population health sciences at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, said ... "Public health officials play a key role in protecting the communities they serve, and promoting vaccine coverage is one of the most effective things they can do to achieve this," Durkin said.

Unfortunately .. what Professor Durkin did not say is that .. "Public health officials play a key role in protecting the PHARMACEUTICAL VACCINE INDUSTY and promoting vaccine coverage is one of the most effective things they do .. not for the community .. but .. the vaccine industry they also SERVE.

Wonder if Ms McManus has seen Vaxxed or heard of Dr. William Thompson's still unexamined allegations of the CDC deliberately destroying evidence showing a "significant increase in black children diagnosed with autism"?

In any event .. it is encouraging to read of Ms McManus .. a registered nurse with a doctorate in urban studies .. clearly state her welcomed belief that more research on the whole issue of vaccines and autism is necessary.

As someone once said .. hopefully .. McManus appointment will be remembered as:

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
